Hi, this is Missy again. It's Saturday and I'm filling in for Boo. We are both waiting for our female person to return home from the vet. I really miss sleeping on the bed with her. I heard she might be home Monday or Tuesday. I hope so.
Friday, June 19, 2009
My male person says that I have an evil but cute look in this picture because of my eyes. I'm not sure what he means. The only reason my eyes were open at all is because he disturbed my sleep with that camera flash of light. He's lucky this lightsaber is just a toy.

The gaps in my posting I mean. With the female human still in the hospital, everyone has been very busy and I've missed a couple posts. I also haven't had as much time to read other cat blogs. The humans have been back and forth to the hospital, and when they are gone, Missy & I mainly sleep.
Hopefully she should be home the end of this week or early next. Then everything will be back to normal.

I've caught Missy playing with my toy lately. That's starting to get on my nerves. She needs to stick to sleeping, not playing. If she doesn't leave it alone I may have to teach her a lesson.
Saturday, June 13, 2009
It's Saturday and I'm back. It's me, Missy the Maine Coon. Boo is busy eating.
I don't really have much to say. As you can see I am very tired. I've been sleeping a lot and waiting for our female human to get back from the vet. My male person says it will probably be another week or so. If I sleep as much as I can, the time will go faster.

Plus, last night the humans had chicken. This time when I showed up to get a few pieces my male human gave me some right away. He learned his lesson from last time.

The only thing better than a nice nap in my chair, is a nice warm nap snug in a blanket.
Sunday, June 7, 2009
My female human is having to go to someplace called a hospital this week to have her knee replaced. She has been hurting all the time, so hopefully it should help her. But I spend lots of time with her and will miss her while she is away.
My male human better not forget to feed me while she's gone. Wel, if he does, I will just have to remind him.

My people took this picture of me the other day when it was hot. I don't like it hot. When it is I like to lay on my back on the floor. The only bad thing is that people are always moving around -- and that scares me. I have to keep flipping over in case I need to run. But if they stay still it is fun to nap on my back.
Friday, June 5, 2009
They said I looked like a decoration on the table. Hmm, I guess I should take that as a compliment. I was just sitting there minding my own business -- unlike the humans.
Thursday, June 4, 2009
Ha, I'm just kidding. I'm not really a jedi, and I can't use that lightsaber. It's too big for my paws. Anyway, I don't need one since I have long sharp claws -- and I know how to use them! That lightsaber is a toy that belongs to my boy human. Sometimes he leaves his things in my chair.
Wednesday, June 3, 2009
And I usually have my bed all to myself in the morning. The humans are up, and Missy doesn't like sunbeams. She is very strange. She likes it cold and windy, the kind of days that freeze your paws off.
Tuesday, June 2, 2009
I've had this toy since I was a kitten. The humans brought it with us when we moved last year -- even though they said it was old and dirty. They may not be too smart, but even they knew it was my favorite toy and they had to bring it.
This toy is so much fun that even Missy sometimes plays with it. And she hardly ever plays at all! Not that I like her playing with my toy. It's actually pretty annoying.

Fortunately my people provided me with this cool, flexible cave to hide in. They call these things "bags." This one is great, because it is made of paper. As any cat will tell you, paper is great for sitting on. From this cave I can keep watch over my new litter. If anyone tries to take it, I will strike!
Sunday, May 31, 2009
I hope all other cats out there are keeping an eye on their humans. They need to be watched.
Saturday, May 30, 2009
I thought I'd show you one of my favorite spots. Boo has her spots and I have mine. Here I am in one of my best places. It is at the foot of the big bed near where my male person keeps his clothes. I like this spot because it is safe and out of the way. No one walks toward me here and I can get my rest. I need lots of rest. Plus it is right near one of my good hiding places. So if I get scared I can run and hide.
Friday, May 29, 2009
Also, they are just jealous because we cats can be comfortable in all sorts of positions. Sometimes you just have to flop.
Thursday, May 28, 2009
I could smell that chicken cooking. Who cared about the stupid crust? Finally, after I stood up and put my paws on the table and looked at him, he figured it out. He gave me a piece and I ate it. Then I went and took a nap. All I wanted was one piece. Humans are pretty slow sometimes.
Wednesday, May 27, 2009
For some reason, humans seem to think it is extremely cute when cats lay on their backs and show their bellies. I'm not sure why this is, but it's true! Since one of the main keys to controlling a chair is being as cute as possible, if all else fails, flip over and show the belly. They'll forget all about moving you out of your spot. Try it and see!

Elin, the cute cat, has tagged me. I have to list six things that make me happy. Let's see:
Napping, Sunbeams, My People, Kitty Treats, My Favorite Toy, & Birdwatching!
I'm a very happy cat. There's are lots of things that make me happy, but those are the first six I thought of.
He's constantly pointing that camera at me and flashing the bright light in my eyes. I wish I could do that when he's busy with something. Maybe I'll just jump on him when he's asleep instead.

So I was thinking. This country is a pretty good country for cats. People don't eat us, and lots of them actually like us a lot. Some of them even rescue kittens who were abandoned like me, and give them nice homes. So from we cats in America, thanks to all the humans who died fighting to protect our country.
Sunday, May 24, 2009
The last time a bird flew past I almost got him -- except for that screen thing in the window. That makes it difficult.
Saturday, May 23, 2009
Let's see. It is hot. Boo likes it hot, but I don't. In case you didn't notice, we Maine Coons have a lot of fur. You see that chair I'm sitting on in the picture? I'm not sitting on it now, because that spot is hot. Good hot weather spots are the floor, and under a fan. I hear that fan calling me now. Bye!
Friday, May 22, 2009
Well, I'll tell you. There are no plants because I killed them all. Ha ha ha!. My female human foolishly left plants where I could get at them. I bit chunks out of them and dug them up until they all died. Maybe they'll bring me some more soon.
Even without plants they are still nice to rub against though.

But I have made an interesting discovery. Humans can't use the tv without something called a "remote." This device magically controls the tv. But they can't get at it if I'm guarding it. No remote, means no tv. And that means a nap undisturbed by tv noise. Don't touch that remote if you value your hand!
Wednesday, May 20, 2009
No one, not man nor beast shall pass without me watching them -- at least for the next minute or two. Watch-cat missions are short in duration.
Tuesday, May 19, 2009
Sometimes my people play with me and forget that I am a ferocious predator -- so I have to remind them. My female person is the victim in this particular situation. See how I grabbed her hand? That's so I can hold onto her while I chomp on her arm.
She's lucky I was just playing around, or that arm might be missing some pieces.
Monday, May 18, 2009
Since the people are not on the bed, we will split it. She will keep her big furry self over on that side, and things will be fine. My nap will proceed without any problem -- once I get back to sleep after that flash.
Sunday, May 17, 2009
This is a great spot. The bottom has doors and it holds stuff inside. And guess what's inside? That's right, cat food! My people know that if I pry open the doors that I want a treat. They are very well trained -- although sometimes I do have to yowl. I use my special "hungry" meow.
My spot is also good for keeping an eye on the stove, where interesting stuff cooks, and for looking out the window. If you don't have a good kitchen spot like me, you should get one!

2. Use Litterbox
3. Get 22 hours of sleep.
I better get back to #3. Bye!
Friday, May 15, 2009
Now look how I have my head jammed up against the arm of the chair. Aside from being a comfortable cushion, this allows me to easily pretend I'm asleep, even when I'm not, since people can't see my face. Finally, I have found that people think these kinds of positions look "cute." Really. If one of my people wants my chair, they will have to move me. And people don't want to disturb a cute, sleeping cat. Try it, it works!

Yes I'm back with another picture of me. I know I put up a picture of a white hamster yesterday, but I'm still black -- all black all the timeWhat am I doing in this picture you might ask. Well, I'm sitting on the back of a couch. What does it look like? Believe it or not, I actually spend quite a bit of time just sitting around. I know it might appear that I should have bigger and better things to do, but I actually like just sitting and looking at things -- like someone taking my picture again.
Wednesday, May 13, 2009
My housemate Missy told me that before I was around, our people had two little hamsters. One died and one got out -- Missy ate it. Whenever Hammy is out I'm not allowed to get too close, and Missy doesn't seem to care about this one -- maybe because it is fat and furry like her.
Tuesday, May 12, 2009
Black fur & sunbeams go together like stinky fish & cans, like water & a bowl, like poop & litter -- well, you get the idea.
Monday, May 11, 2009
Some of the birds in the yard fly right up to my windows. I'll bet they think I can't get them. They should watch out -- I'm practicing.
Sunday, May 10, 2009
I don't like when my people leave the house. Sometimes I sit at the top of the stairs and yowl. Other times I go to the door and yowl. Why do they have to leave? I don't leave. They should stay at home and keep me company. People are fun to have around.
When they come home I meet them at the top of the stairs -- so they know I missed them.
Saturday, May 9, 2009
It's hard to take a nap with a big fuzzy tail in your face. Trust me, this isn't the first time Missy's tail has become a problem. I let her sleep on my bed with me, and this is the thanks I get. If i wasn't so tired there might be trouble.
Friday, May 8, 2009
I know it's hot. What, do they think I'm going to get in the pot? Sometimes I wonder about people -- actually, I wonder lots of times.
Thursday, May 7, 2009
It's my housemate Missy of course. She doesn't get up there very often, but I don't mind when she does. The part I'm in is the most comfortable. As long as she stays up on top we won't have any problems.
I don't share the good part of my chair. Well, except for when my people sit in it with me. I give them a little bit of space.
Wednesday, May 6, 2009
I was bird-watching in the window, and had just leaped back onto my bed. Believe it or not, someone was waiting to take my picture.
Tuesday, May 5, 2009
These constant pictures are getting ridiculous. Can't they see I'm trying to take a nap?
I have this thing called a "fleece." It is great for cats, because it is so soft and warm. I love to nap on it, and so does Missy. Sometimes we even share it. I hope other cats have fleeces too.
Monday, May 4, 2009
I've known Missy ever since I was a kitten. She's older than me. Missy is a champion napper. I'm pretty good at napping myself, but Missy can sleep almost the whole day sometimes. She and I get along pretty good. Maybe I'll see if she wants to put up a guest post once in awhile -- when she's not busy sleeping.

I've got to say, I was kind of reluctant to start this blog. Why you ask? Why would a cute personable cat like me not want pictures of herself all over the internet?
Well, some of these pictures were taken without my permission. Humans just go around snapping photos without even asking. The next thing you know they'll be taking pictures of me in my litterbox.

Last night I caught a mouse. I think it snuck in while the front door was open. No one noticed it except me. I have really good eyesight and hearing, unlike the people I live with. I've never caught a mouse before and I wasn't really sure what to do with it. Since I'd already eaten, I wasn't too hungry, so I thought I'd just play with it. It was even more fun than my favorite mouse toy.
I brought it into the living room and was having a great time. But then my people noticed it. They got all excited. But they took the mouse away. I don't know what happened to it. I think they might have put it back outside. Can you believe that? After all my hard work in catching it, they just let it go. What's up with that?
Hi. I 'd like to introduce myself. My name is Boo Boo Black. Some just call me Boo, or Boo Boo. As you can see I'm a small black cat. Here is a picture of me resting on my bed. Well, actually my people think it's their bed, but they just use it when I have better things to do.
Why is a cat writing a blog you ask? That's a good question. I'm a modern, technologically-skilled cat. Really! I know other cats have blogs, and I thought I'd start one too. I'll be writing here regularly and posting pictures. Please visit often!
