Greetings, Effurrybody!

We came into the computer room this morning and found Mummy in a terrible state, with her eyes leaking more than we have effur seen them do before - and as soon as We saw the video she had been watching on her Computer Machine, we understood why!

Kitties - Woofies - And Humans!
This is the most DISGUSTING, HORRIFIC, BARBARIC thing we have EFFUR seen, and it must be stopped! In China, hundreds of thousands of innocent animals are tortured and murdered, just so that humans can steal their fur.
They are SKINNED ALIVE and then thrown on the garbage heap!!!

Here is the link to the video - but Be Warned. It shows the most Dreadful Atrocities! You will need a strong stomach!

After Mummy stopped crying, She got REALLY, REALLY ANGRY. She said the Humans who do this should be skinned alive themselves and that She would like to be the one to do it.
And We would like to help her! We would like to scratch their eyes out! We would like to tear them to pieces! Murderers!

We - Trixie, Caspurr and Mummy - call on you all to share this video and make your protest against this Mass Murder felt by boycotting the Chinese garment industry. And, of course (though it goes without saying), never, ever, wearing fur, unless it's fake fur.

Greetings, Effurrybody!

We are furry sad this morning - especially Mummy. She has been looking at pictures of Angel Possum, Who Came Before - and her eyes are leaking.

It is exactly One Year since Possum left her and flew away to the Bridge, where Angel Pixie was waiting for him, as well as Angel Minxie, who was Mummy's first furbaby.

Mummy has chosen some of the best pictures of Possum, from the time he was a little baby kitten, right up almost to the End, to celebrate his Life.

This is Possum as a kitten. Even in those early days, he staked his claim to the armchair, which became one of his favourite places in later life, even after Mummy moved to her present apartment and this armchair was replaced by a new one.

Possum loved lying on his back and having his tummy rubbed. He would just flip over and invite Mummy to snorgle him. So it was in kittenhood:

and so it continued into adulthood: 

right up to the very end:

Another one of Possum's cutest features was his beautiful pink and white paws:

He had the softest little paws imaginable. Mummy used to hold him up to her face and he would stroke her cheeks with his soft little pads (claws always retracted, so as not to scratch Her).

And we're sure it won't surprise anyone to know that Possum adored sunpuddles:

Here he is, this time, sunbathing on the balcony:

Mummy wants to finish this photo purr-sentation with a couple of pictures of Possum and Pixie together, as they were for most of their lives.

First, here is a picture of them as young kitties, at the old flat. Mummy isn't too sure how old they were then, exactly, but since it was before they all moved to her present apartment, they couldn't have been more than two years old:

And finally, the Iconic Snapshot of Possum and Pixie, which was their Profile Picture on this blog until We (Trixie and Caspurr) took over the reins:

Now, a few words from Mummy:

It's time to light a yahrzeit candle for Possum, in memory of the seventeen wonderful years in which he shared my life, making it immeasurably richer.
I'll never forget you, my sweetest boy, my beloved, precious Furry Baby. I know that you are waiting for me and the day will come when we are re-united. Give my love also to Pixie and to Minxie. Until we meet again.

Your loving Mummy.

We Keep Shining Through

Hallo, Effurrybody!

Such excitement here! Our dear, dear furr-iend, Her Majesty Queen Katie Isabella, Queen of Tennessee and the Surrounding Territories, has nominated Us, for an awardie - the Shine On Award.

See how purr-ty it is!

Thank you effur so much, dear Katie! This is such a great honour!

Now, there are some rules that come with this award! We have to display the award logo on Our Blog (done that!), thank the purr-son who nominated Us (done that!) and link back to their blog (done that too!)

Next, we have to tell you seven things about Ourselves - (you probably know most of these things already, but here goes...):

1) We live with our Mummy in the Most Beautiful City in the Whole World - Jerusalem.

2) We love to play and our absolute favourite Toy (for the time being) is Our New Tunnel. But we also like playing with Dolls (Caspurr too!), especially when they've got long hair we can chew on.

3) Caspurr likes munching on cactus plants! 

4) We like it when Mummy tells Us stories and reads Us poems. Our Favourite is "The Owl and the Pussycat". We could happily listen to that, over and over again, for Hours (mol).

5) Whenever Our Human sings the Cat Duet (both voices!)  by Mr. Rossini, Trixie comes running to Her. We think it's terribly funny the way the Human gets the lyrics wrong. You wouldn't believe anyone could mispronounce "Miaou", would you?

6) Our Mummy is a l-a-w-y-e-r. Before she retired, she used to be a criminal purr-secutor. We don't know what that is, exactly, but it sounds furry impawtant, doesn't it? 

7) Our Human is writing a Book. 

Now, the last rule is, we have to nominate other bloggers for this awardie and link to them. We're not sure how many we're supposed to nominate (Queen Katie Isabella, who nominated Us, only nominated one other blog, but we've seen other award winners who nominated more than that, so We don't know exactly how many other bloggers we can share this award with).

Well, here goes:

1) Meowmeowmans for their contribution to caring for homeless kitties in shelters, in need of a loving home;

2) Ginger Jasper (for being so handsome and furry);

3 ) Austin Towers aka CATachresis, for his many contributions to increasing our vocatabulary;

4) Kate Crimmins and her Feline Family at Views and Mews by Coffee Kat.

Finally, we would like to nominate all those kitties and woofies who have flown away to the Rainbow Bridge but who continue to blog from that Happy Place, some frequently, others only occasionally (including, but not limited to, Admiral Hestorb and  Angel Keisha the Spaniel), because they do, indeed, Shine On, up there at the Bridge, as they wait for us to be reunited with them some day.

A Tunnel of Opportunity


See what Mummy  bought for us!

Our furry own Tunnel! Now we can teleport freely and visit our furr-iends whenever We feel like it, without waiting for the Human to turn on the Computer Machine for which only She has the Passwords!

Look! It has pompoms at both ends!

At least, it had pompoms at both ends, but it didn't take Caspurr very long to detach one of them and to completely unravel the other.

But Mummy didn't let that faze her. She found the missing bobble and sewed it back on and She managed to put the other one back together again. Isn't She clever!

Mummy really would have liked to buy Us a Cat Tree, Cat Condo, Cat Villa, but they are effur so expensive. She saw one She thought We would like, but - so She says - it was Huge. So big, She doesn't have anywhere to put it. 
We don't see the problem, kitties. She could easily make room for it. All she has to do is throw out the sofa or the armchair - or maybe her bed (on second thoughts, not her Our Bed).

Mummy says that when She gets her new apartment, She will have one room as our Special Playroom and she will furr-nish it with effury conceivable toy a kitty could possibly want.

Hmmm - We aren't holding Our breath. She's been talking about buying a new flat for ages and ages!

However, She did say that if We are furry Good, She may buy us an Ess in a month or two. We don't know which is better for teleporting, a Tunnel or an Ess. Can any of you advise Us?

We were effur so Good this morning. Working together (which always makes the Human happy), We caught and dedded a wasp. Mummy hates wasps, so We brought it to Her, to show her her Enemy's mangled remains. We thought She would pin it up on the wall to display it, but instead, She flushed it down the toilet! However, She did tell Us how Good and Clever we were to catch it.

The truth is, it would never have got inside the house if Caspurr hadn't shredded all the window-screens, but Mummy was kind enough not to mention that.

Well, that's all for now, Effurryone. We are off to play with our new Tunnel. Maybe we'll use it to drop by on some of you over the weekend...

Catching Up

Hallo, Effurrybody!

We are sorry not to have been around for the last couple of weeks, but the Human has been having purr-oblems with her Computer Thingy. Her Mousie died. We would like to make it purr-fectly clear, however, that it was not Us who dedded it. It had actually been sick for quite a while. So our Human tried to purr-form emergency surgery on the Mousie. Unfortunately, the Patient died on the operating table and then, the Computer Machine wouldn't work at all until Mummy got a new Mousie.

Now Mummy says she has a lot of catching up to do and She expects Us to be furry, furry Good and let her get on with it.

Caspurr wasn't so Good this past week. In fact, he was purr-ticularly Evil, Mummy says. But that's because she got mad at him for peeing in her flowerpots and killing her Goosefoot Vine. 

We've got to go now, and let Mummy get on with the rest of her "Catching Up". Meanwhile, we'll take a little Nap.

Have a Good Week, Effurryone!

Trixie the Black Panfur and Caspurr the Tigger King.
