My Thanksgiving

I am sitting on my couch, waiting for all of the Thanksigiving visitors to arrive and adore me. I am hoping they will play cat toy and cat feather with me. I'm also wondering if Augie the Yappy Dog is still coming. I may be too ferocious for him.

Well, Augie the Yappy Dog did not stay home. I just cannot believe my eyes. That is why they are closed. Just a few moments after this picture was taken, I flew off the couch and chased Augie all around the house. Yes, that's right. Augie ran away from me and cried like the little yappy dog he is! I rule this house. Then I got tired of him and went downstairs. I came up later on, after dinner and some beans played feather toy with me! That was fun. Then Augie hid from me. At least he stayed away from my end of the couch. Everyone agreed that in a battle between Augie and me, I would WIN!

Here's the turkey all the beans ate. The pig approves.

Here's the home made pumpkin pie the Food Lady made. She wants you to know she roasted the pumpkin herself. No canned pumpkin in this house. But she also said the bad words when she made the crust. On the night before Thanksgiving, you can bet you will hear her grumbling, "I will never be a crust maker! Arrgh!!!" But the beans loved the pie even if the crust doesn't look perfect.

Here's the pecan tart the Food Lady made. One of the beans told her that it was the best pecan tart he'd ever eaten. This made the Food Lady very happy.
You want to know what I had for Thanksgiving Dinner? A can of Purina Pro chicken cat food. Why the beans eat turkey instead of Purina Pro chicken out of a can is a mystery to me. I got the best dinner of all!!!
Thank you for all of your Thanksgiving wishes and visits. It has been cold and stormy here. I am very happy to have this warm and loving Forever Home with good beans who fulfill my every demand.

My New Friends

Hello everyone! Here I am, on my soft spot on the big chair. I am so glad the beans had this chair waiting for me when I came to live here. Once in a while, a bean tries to sit beneath me on the big part of the chair. Uh, that is Cat Space. That person gets a whap! By the way, I haven't grown antlers. Those things that look like they are growing out of my head are flowers.

Here are pictures of a couple of new friends of mine!

This is Augie, the Incredible Champagne Drinking Yappy Dog! He was in Paris when this picture was taken. Some Giant Bean was holding him. Augie is bringing his beans over for Thanksgiving Dinner in a couple of days. His mom bean is the best friend of my Food Lady. My Food Lady says I am 1000 times bigger than Augie the Yappy Dog. She told me to sit on my cat tree and let Augie stand under me and then have fun! I am looking forward to playing tag with Augie and his beans, and all the other beans who are supposed to be here. Of course, I will be the Center of Attention!

Here is a pic of Sneaker the Tuxie Cat and Rascal the black cat. They are my neighbors! Aren't they cute? Maybe they can hear me when I broadcast Radio Jackpot!
I will be posting pictures of the good food my beans make for the big gathering. Hope all of you have happy holidays with your beans too!

Radio Jackpot & Animal Cops At My House!

Ever since I declared that the Food Dude was the Best Person in the Known Universe, there have been no blog posts. This is the Food Lady's job. I whap her every day to remind her to visit my cat pals and tell the cats and beans about my amazing exploits. Maybe I need to whap her some more! Finally, here's a very important update!

Since I can't go outside, I like to sit at the back doors and talk to the kitties and other critters who visit my back yard. There are lots of kitties, squirrels, birds, mice and also racoons. At night, I often sit at the back door and broadcast Radio Jackpot to the neighborhood animals, birds, and beans. I can usually be heard chattering away for several hours in the middle of the night as my night time pals come to visit me and get the latest animal gossip. My animal friends come and tell me what is going on in their part of the neighborhood and I pass it along on Radio Jackpot. I like having this job since I can't go outside and run around with my outdoor friends.

One morning last week, I had to give a cat alert to the other animals and my beans. The beans were home for the day. One of the racoons was lying down in the back yard and it was almost 10 in the morning. This was not right because the racoons only visit at night. The beans saw the racoon get up, walk around and then fall down. Then he went and crawled in the fountain and tried to drink the water there. And then he just stayed in the fountain. The racoon shouldn't have been out in the day time and he shouldn't have been falling down. So the beans called the San Francisco Animal Cops!

The Animal Cops came over right away. There were two very, very brave women animal cops. You can see their picture at the top of this post. They saw that the racoon was sick and needed to be taken away so he could be cared for. The amazing Animal Cops spent about an hour trying to capture the sick racoon. Although Mr. Racoon was very sick, he was still very wily and did everything he could to evade capture by the very nice Animal Cops. I don't understand why he did not want to go with them. He jumped over my fence but they caught him. Then he got away and ran under my shed. Then the Animal Cops spent a lot of time trying to capture him while he was under the shed. They stuck their heads under there. They stuck poles under there. They got him out and in a giant net but he got away again! But the Animal Cops were very tenacious and courageous and strong and they captured Mr. Racoon again. This time, they kept him in the giant net (seen above - along with smiling Animal Cops) and took him away from my back yard.

I knew Mr. Racoon was not feeling good so I am glad I got some help for him. I am glad that the Animal Cops came to help. I stayed out of their way but the beans kept watching them and saying things like, "Wow, they are bad a_____!" And "I wouldn't stick my head under the shed for the racoon!"

Last of all, I watched a lot of baseball this year and I am a proud fan of the World Series Champion San Francisco Giants, just like my beloved Food Dude!
