Mancat Monday

Dis is aposed to be Angie's bed. Da sighkadelik bed cover is a present she got from her boycat furiend, Cocoa. Why are you not in dat bed Angie? I finks I am takin' ofur dis nice bed. It's soft and has a little corner wif nip in it.

I finks it could be a good place to bring a girlcat to. But ferst I needs to put it in a nice quiet corner. Den I has to invite her ofur. Den I has to get a little mancatness workin' by wooin' her a little and whisperin' sweet nuffins in her ear. Den we can cuddle up a little. Well, I'm not sure it's big enuf for two. Hey, get yur mind owt of da gutter. We's only gonna take a nice cat nap togefur.

My Monday

It's my mugshot Monday. Beau Beau has been gettin way too much attention lately. This morning I snuck out of the house when Mom opened the door to throw the peanuts out for the Blue Jays. Then I went under my favrit spot to hide out and wait for them tasty birds to come along. I didn't even have my bell collar on to scare them. It must still be Easter acoz a bunny rabbit came hopping along! I tried to run after him to ask him where my Easter treats were but Mom came along and ruined my plans. Then some Robins were fighting in my pine tree trying to get the best spot for this year's nest. I had to come inside before I got into any trubble.

Kisses, Angie

Easter fun and food

Happy Easter efurryone! Da collij girl came home and I helped her color Easter eggs. She tried to color mine tail but I woodn't let her. Can yoo imajin? I almost had a pink tail. Dese are owr pretty Easter eggs.
And for all yoo Ham lovers owt dare, here is da Easter Ham Pie before it wented into da oven.

This is the finished Ham Pie. YUUUMMMMM!Mom had a recipe she got from some Italian-American friends a long time ago. There are no instrukshuns on how to put it together or how long to cook it so it camed out a little more browned dan she liked but at least it is all cooked frew.

She also couldn't find a good recipe on line so here is a fambly secret recipe:

Italian Ham Easter Pie

Shank ham bone in - 2-1/2 lb.
3/4 lb. prosciutto - sliced thick
1 cup Parmesan cheese
1 basket cheese
1 stick abruzzi sausage ( soak in warm water - 10 min - take skin off -)
1/2 lb. pepperoni
12 eggs
course pepper

For da pie dough -
6 cups flour
1 cup oil
1 cup warm water
3 eggs
course pepper
6 tsp baking powder

mix, roll out, put in pie plate, put in mixed up ingredients, bake at 400 for 15 mins - then 375 for 45 mins -- or use a store bought pie dough like we did for owr pie.

This recipe makes enuf for one pie and a 9x13 pan. Since we didn't use the dough part of the recipe - we don't know how much it would make but it looks like it's enuf for both pies.

Tuesdays Toesies

Can yoo imagine not having dese wonnerful claws on my cute little toesies? I don't know how I'd be able to fun up and down da hallway as fast as I do now.

Just in case yoo hadn't seen it, in Connecticut dey are trying to create a bill to make it illegal to declaw cats unless it is a medical emergency! Now if dare is anyone who finks dare are already too many claws in government it's owr beans but it shouldn't be so easy to just cut owr toesies off. Speshully when we know how cute cats' toesies are.

Dese pawsies also haf anofur purpose. Dey are meant to whap da beans wif when dey don't get owt of bed on time. Geez Mom, it duzn't take dat long to get into da new daylight savings routine does it? ~Beau Beau's toes

We just want to share da love and nice fings, not somefing to spoil yur bisit.

On anuffer note, has anyone seen Bombay and the 5-Cat Style from Singapurr lately? We thot of dem when we saw da noos article from Yahoo about da kitten dat made it all da way cross da ocean on a ship from Singapore. Dat is one speshul kitty. Wonder what his life purpose is? Hope he becomes a blogger!

One more impawtant fing! In owr noospaper, the Record-Journal, is reporting today dat in Connecticut dey are taking up a debate on fighting to stop declawing cats! Isn't dat wonderful? Dey want to prohibit declawing unless it is a medical emergency. Go Connecticut! A good local v.e.t. from Meriden, CT, Dr. Tobin, was quoted in da article letting people know about da cruel procedure of declawing. Yoo can go here to read da article.

We gots lots of nice v.e.t.s in Meriden. Dat's where owr v.e.t., Dr. St. Clair is from. He is a wonderful v.e.t. and helps owt wif the place we were adopted from, the Meriden Humane Society.

Mancat Monday

Mom found a baby picshure of me. Lookit mine big ears!And here is where I grew into mine big ears. Instead of an big person sized head dat human youngsters have, some of us cats has mancat sized ears when we are young and den we grow into dem. Dat's today's observation.
