To save us all from hungry tummies,
Hip, hip, hip hooray!
Oooh, tidings of catnip and joy,

Twas Da Nite Afore ChrisMouse

Twas Da Nite Afore ChrisMouse
by Beau Beau and Angie
(Adapted from Clement Clark Moore)
Twas da nite afore Chrismouse an all frew da howse,

Not a spidey wuz stirrin' not efun owr elecktrik mouse.

Owr stockins were hung by da chimney wif care,

In da hopes dat St. Chrissymouse soon would be dare.

Da beans were all nestled all snug in dare beds,

Wif vizzzuns of vaykayshuns swimmin in dare heads.

Angie wuz takin a baff, and I watched in awe,

As she werked her majik, wif her big furry paw.

When out on the lawn dare camed a big noise,

I sprang up from da floor wif mine yooshual poise.

Scratchin at da curtains, I waved my paw,

Tore a few of dem fings, and couldn't beeleeve what I saw.

I turned aroun quik when Angie appeared,

To look at a miniachur sled, and eight tiny vishus deer!

Wif a little old mousie, so close to owr howse,

We knew in a moment it must be St. Chrissymouse.

Kwikker den mousies, doze vishus deer came,

And he whistled, and shouted, and called dem by name;

"Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!

On, Comet! on Cupid! on, Donder and Blitzen!

To da top of the porch! to da top of da wall!"

Doze little vishus deer, how dey obeyed his call!

So up to da house-top doze deer how dey flew,

Wif a sled full of nip an toys, and St. Chrissymouse too.

And den, in a whisker, we heard on da roof,

Da prancing and pawing of each evil hoof.

As we drew in owr heads, and den turned around,

Down the chimney St. Chrissymouse came wif a bound.

He was dressed all in mouse fur, from his head to his foot,

And his clothes were all stained wif ashes and soot;

A bag full of nip an toys he had flung on his back,

And he looked a little nipped owt as he opened his pack.

His eyes -- how they twinkled! dat nip did its trick!

His cheeks were like roses, his nose lit up quick!

His little mousie mouf was was twitchin down low,

And da beard of his chin was as white as da snow;

He had a sharp pointed face and a little furry belly,
Dat shook when he laffed like when we jump on da telly.

He was round and furry, a right jolly old mouse,

And we laffed when we saw him, in spite of owrselfs;

A wink of his eye and a twist of hims head,

Soon let us know we had nuffin to dread;

He didn't make a peep, and went strait to his werk,

And filled all owr stockings; den turned wif a jerk,

And laying his paw aside of his nose,

And giffin' a nod, up da chimney he rose;

He jumped in hims sleigh, dem vishus deer waitin to go,

And away dey all flew as we watched frum below.

But we heard him say, as he drove out of site,

"Merry Chrismouse to all, and to all a good-night."

After we finally got it pried off we made sure we dedded dem mousies reel good.

Angie felt da need to cuddle wif hers in between whappin it around. She liked da red one acuz a Christmouse an all.

When we got tired of da mousies, we went back to da box to see if dare wuz any more of dem mousies in dare. Yoo know dey could a had little mousies when dey wuz in da box or somefin.

We could all chase each ofur up an down it and haf races an stuff.

Our first book review - Cat Lover's Daily Companion

Our first book review by Beau Beau & Angie.

Cat Lover's Daily Companion
365 Days of Insight and Guidance for Living a Joyful Life with Your Cat
Kristen Hampshire, Iris Bass and Lori Paximadis
ISBN: 9781592535910

Ferst off, me an Angie have trubble readin' so we asked Daddy to read da book to us. It took a while cuz we kep askin questions an Angie kep asking Mom to make fings dat dey show yoo how to make, but finally he read the whole book to us.

We had some laffs from da book as we herd what some humans suggest what yoo shud do wif yur cat. Fur example on page 69 "What Your Cat's Tail Is Telling You" why don't humans just ask us what we mean? Me n Angie's tails are usually up and wagging or quivvering. We am always happy accept when da beans go on vacayshun cuz den we gots no one to read to us. Den dare is a section on training us how to stay off da counters. Huh? Dat's what dey fink. But wait till da humans go to bed. Hah! We laffed an laffed about dat page.

We also enjoyed the "Feline Fun Fact" which was on some pages in da book. Fur example on page 37 "The American Bobtail often grows an extra-thick double winter coat with lynxlike markings." Whew! Dey must bee hot!

Da book also shows how to make fings (we finks we needs da humans to do dat). And what is nice is dey are concerned wif owr safety as dey explain how to make a knitted mousie. It gives instrukshuns how to knit or crochet one and akshully tells yoo to leave off da "tail" from da pattern so we don't axseedentally eat it. And it says to use a solid filler insted of fluff which some of us could eat after we ripped apart dat nitted mousie. We wuz impressed wif dat cuz it shows dat dey care.

Plus, Mom wuz aspeshully in awe of da reely good pictures in da book an all da credits to da humans who took da pictures wif dare flashy fings in da back of da book. Yoo could just look at da wonnerful picshures an be happy wif dis book. Yoo should see some of da awesome lookin Ginger's an Main Coons, an Tuxies, an Tabbies oh my! Oh yoo just gotta see!

And, yoo won't believe dis, but dare is a page on how to start a cat blog! We almost peed on da floor when we read dat!

But da coolest fing efur is dat dare is a little plastic circle on da cover dat yoo can put yur picture in. Or you can put a treat in dare like Mom did. It's like a little mergency spot for treats so yoo always know yoo has one just in case yoo gets hungry.

Me an Angie give dis book four paws (dat means it am reeely good). It wood make a good Christmas or holiday present.

Mancat Monday

I haf to tell my side of da story. Yep I wuz a bad mancat an I put da bitey on Angie. But she wuz sleepin on da Kollij girls bed an I wanted her to get off dare! Plus I packed on a few pounds in da last few weeks so when I jumped on her it wuz a little too much. I finks I wuz tryin to turn into a Warewolf like Jacob. Cuz yoo know wif dis extra weight on me I kind a got a six pak ab fing goin. I just did not know how strong I wuz when I put da bitey on her. An hey, mine spit does not smell! I will be nicer to Angie now (dats mostly cuz Mom gave me da evil eye).

Yep. I'm sunnin on Sunday. Today is my favrit day cuz I get to stay owtside all day. I help Daddie by followin' him around in case he needs somefin. Den I come inside for a minnit to tell Mom. Den I go back owtside to follow Daddie round some more. Today I helped him to feed da birdies so dey will come and I can eat see and talk to them. It is nicer owtside den inside because Beau Beau is being mean to me. Yesterday I wuz laying on da Kollij's girl's bed (gettin all my furs an stinky on it fur when she comes home dis week to bisit) when all a sudden Beau Beau jumped on me an started beatin me up. Yup. All his big mancatness jumped rite on me an he bited me. He got my back all spitty wif his stinky spit an bited almost rite frew my furs. Mom saved me an now Beau Beau is in big trubble. I fink he got da messij to stay away from me cuz today he gave me da look like he wuz gonna jump on me again but he looked first at Mom an she gave him her own look an den he slinked away. Guess she showed him who is boss.

Vishus Deer Attack

Caution!! Werds below mite be icky for some.

It is a frightful day for some bein's cuz we am hearin' lots of bang bang bang noises. We don't know much bout shootin' fings but we am stayin rite here in dis cabbynet till da bang bang noises is gone. It could be a vishus deer attack goin' on cuz we finks dey has Elk attacks dis time of year in Oregun Idyho areas. So it must be dat time of da yeer. Mom has seen five of dem poor deer ded an squashed all ofur da big road efurry day dis week. We finks it might be better to take em owt wif one shot insted of dem bein nuffin left but a piece of fur in da middle of da highway.

We were owt on da deck an we herd da shots an we camed runnin' in. Now we gonna hide here till da vishus deer attack is ofur.

Dis prolly shud haf been party tip #1 but we do not always follow da correct order of fings. But today's tip is before yoo come in to da house for da party yoo must wipe yur paws. Dat helps to keep da dirt dat nefur goes away off da floors.
Mom wants to know where all da dirt went before when we had da big scratchin pad all ofur da floors in da last house?

I reely liked dis lady, Merry-lin. She kinda looked like me wif her stripey hyooman shirt an she wuz reely nice.

It's cuz he wuz actin' all lovey duvey to da wimmen an tryin to kiss dem all. What a schmoozer he is. We wuz jus waitin' for him to start talkin like a hyooman. But he did a good job tho so I guess he can sleep.

Fall leaf watching

It's near da end of fall and I'm watching all da leaves fall down. I watched all day long. Is is efun more fun dan watchin birdies. It was so much fun I watched for hours an hours. We gots big windows so I could watch dem fall down from way up high. I watched all day long as more and more leaves camed down. Den I watched as owr humans tried to rake dem all up. Angie tried to jump in da big leaf pile but she had more fun pouncin on da leafs. She watched da leaves come down too.
We has lots of trees in da yard. One is a maple and da ofurs are Sick-a-mores. Dey has dat funny name cuz day always look sick like dey got a disease or somefin. But dey am fun trees cuz I gets to bring da furry ball fings dat fall off dem into da house an play wif dem. Dey roll around on da floor reel good.
Haf fun leaf watchin if yoo in a fall leaf area too. Show us yur leaves owt yur window.
