  Momma and dad are so busy on the computer, none of us kittens have time to update our silly journal. We all got a lot of turkey yesterday. Momma sat by our bowls and fed us by hand. Even sneezer ate from mommas hand! But then again, she'd walk a tight rope for a bread crumb. I got into momma's yarn bag. i thought she was hiding Yule presents from me but it seems it wasn't for me! how could that be?! We also got the food we like again. even though it's filled withthis stuff called ash, we like "bad" food better than the good stuff momma tries to get us to eat. but every now again momma says it's okay to have the stuff we like.
i'm getting kind of tired, i've been meowing all day for momma to give me back my...errr...her yarn. So i think i'll end this and go take a nap.
Sneezer here, this is for my sister Annabelle, momma said this is how she felt...

so I thought i would post this for her

by Branwen

Goddess lend me one tiny soul,
A kitten if You please.
I promise I will love him
And provide a life of ease.

Shelter, care and happiness
I'll give him if I may
And he'll bring joy to my life too
For as long as he can stay.

His company will comfort me
If he lives for many years,
But even if he leaves while young
He'll know such love while here.

Perhaps he'll be so perfect
That You'll want him for Your own.
I'll know he's safe within Your arms.
How can I mourn him long?

But ease my grief, sweet Goddess
Send me one more soul,
Another charming kitten to love
My broken heart console.

Great Mother with Your mighty power
You rule the Earth and Sea.
But the love you give to every soul
Gives strength to such as me.
momma thought this was funny...I however, don't

How to bathe a cat
1. Thoroughly clean toilet.
2. Lift both lids and add shampoo.
3. Find and soothe cat as you carry him to bathroom.
4. In one swift move, place cat in toilet, close both lids and stand on top, so cat cannot escape.
5. The cat will self agitate and produce ample suds. (Ignore ruckus from inside toilet, cat is enjoying this.)
6. Flush toilet 3 or 4 times. This provides power rinse, which is quite effective.
7. Have someone open outside door, stand as far from toilet as possible and quickly lift both lids.
8. Clean cat will rocket out of the toilet and outdoors, where he will air dry.

hey everyone, this is the kitten's momma, they asked me to write for all of them since i hate to see them fight over the computer.
yes i know this journal is lacking, hopefully i can do some nice html for them (i think they have a hard time with colors and hex codes) so the journal may look weird for a day or so. and hopefully since i'll ge at school, the kittens can use the computer more!
*i keep saying kittens, they are no where near kittens, especially timid, he's almost a grown man!)

just as an update, everyone is wonderful.
Velvet is becoming more vocal, she lets me hold her and walk around. she loves the attention we give her and i usually fall asleep with her in my arms at night. she usually sits on my lap when i'm on the comupter but she's sleeping now. Velvet lost alot of weight, but she still has an appatite, and no where as thin as Timid. she has been hunting flys in the house, she makes a chirping sound and it usually works.

Timid is a crazy boy. he's so affectionate, he's also pretty vocal, not as much as Velvet. he's taken to sleeping on the head of the couch, half on the front half on the back. or he sleeps in Sean's work bag. he likes the texture of the bag, Velvet tries to get inside his guitar bags. Timid has definately taken to Sean. When ever Sean holds him, Timid goes limp and he's like putty! Timid had taken a liking to Sean's electric razor, he likes the vibration so when ever sean uses it, timid will sit near the sink so he can see it.

Sneezer is finally going into heat, but every 3 months or so, the last time was in May. she is still rather small for her age, (about 3yrs )but she doesn't get her period. i don't want to 'fix' her because she's so poorly bred i fear she won't make it out of surgery. she's pooping outside the box, i try to keep it as clean as possible but i think the other cats scare her, or Velvet intimidates her. but she is so affectionate! i'll be watching tv and she will get on my lap, climb up and sniff my face. Then she will head butt me and i'll pet her for about a half hour with her sitting on my chest, or holding her like a baby. she will nibble on my rope chain, she loves my pentacle, she'll sniff it and nibble on it constantly. She falls assleep in my arms alot (as well as timid)
she hasn't lost any teeth in a while allthough one of them is looking a bit red. she eats more than any of the other cats so she's okay.

and i thnk thats it.
Updated pictures soon!
It's timid, momma took a nap so i stole the computer

All I Need to Know I Learned from My Cat

Life is hard, then you nap.
Curiosity never killed anything except maybe a few hours.
When in doubt, cop an attitude.
Variety is the spice of life: one day ignore people, the next day annoy them.
Climb your way to the top - that's why the drapes are there.
Never sleep alone when you can sleep on someone's face.
Find your place in the sun - especially if it happens to be on that nice pile of warm, clean laundry.
Make your mark in the world - or at least spray in each corner.
When eating out, think nothing of sending back your meal twenty or thirty times.
If you're not receiving enough attention, try knocking over several expensive antique lamps.
Always give generously - a small bird or rodent left on the bed tells them, "I care." When you go out into the world, remember: being placed on a pedestal is a right, not a privilege.

Every morning, momma and daddy try to sleep past 5 am and i don't think it's right. they should be petting me and loving me. So i meow reallllly loud untill someone gets out of bed and opens the bedroom door. for the past couple months, i have been meowing so loud. whenever i need attention i let everyone know. Sometimes when momma and daddy is sitting on the couch, i meow really loud so they know i'm comming up for hugs. also since the weather has been so cold, i have been full of shocks! my fur has been electrically charged so whenever i rub on someone's leg, i shock them! Momma has never seen such a loud cat!

momma was trying to get something out of the closet in the kitchen, when she opened the closet everything came tumbeling out (most likely because i tried to rearange the closet with my body when i tried to sleep there earlier today). as she yelled out words i didn't understand, i saw a little green bottle of food coloring and i needed to attack it. momma took it from me and that made me mad so i tried to grab it back. Again she tried to take it from me and i ran and told daddy. about five minuets later momma came and sat near me with the green bottle and a paint brush i tried to attack the bottle again so momma put some of it on the paint brush and i rubbed against it...i think i look good!

Cat Translations!
miaowbu Feed me.
meeow Pet me.
mrooww I love you.
Miioo-oo-oo I am in love and must meet my betrothed outside beneath the hedge. Don't wait up.
mrow I feel like making noise.
rrrow-mawww Please, the time is come to tidy the cat box.
rrrow-miawww I have remedied the cat box untidiness by shoveling the contents as far out of the box as was practical.
miaowmiaow Play with me.
Miaowmioaw Have you noticed the shortage of available cat toys in this room?
mioawmioaw Since I can find nothing better to play with, I shall see what happens when I sharpen my claws on this handy piece of furniture.
raowwwww I think I shall now spend time licking the most private parts of my anatomy.
mrowwwww I am now recalling, with sorrow, that some of my private parts did not return with me from that visit to the vet.
Roww-maww-roww I am so glad to see that you have returned home with both arms full of groceries. I will now rub myself against your legs and attempt to trip you as you walk towards the kitchen.
gakk-ak-ak My digestive passages seem to have formed a hairball. Wherever could this have come from? I shall leave it here upon the carpeting.
mow Snuggling is a good idea.
moww Shedding is pretty good, too.
mowww! I was enjoying snuggling and shedding in the warm clean laundry until you removed me so unkindly.
Miaow! Miaow! I have discovered that, although one may be able to wedge his body through the gap behind the stove and into that little drawer filled with pots and pans, the reverse path is slightly more difficult to navigate.
Mraakk! Oh, small bird! Please come over here.
ssssRoww! I believe that I have found a woodchuck or similar animal.
mmmrowmmm It is certain that the best tasting fish is one you have caught yourself.
mmmmmmm If I sit in the sunshine for another hour or so, I think I shall be satisfied.
Mreoaw Please ask room service to send up another can of tunafish.
Mreeeow Do you serve catnip with that?
mroow I have forced my body into a tiny space in order to look cute. How'm I doin?
Miaooww! Mriaow! Since you are using the can opener, I am certain that you understand the value of a well-fed and pampered cat. Please continue.

Ten Commandments for a responsible pet owner

1. My life is likely to last 10 to 15 years. Any seperation
from you will be very painful.
2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.
3. Place your trust in me--it is crucial for my well being.
4. Don't be angry with me for long, and don't lock me
as punishment. You have your work, your friends and your
entertainment. I ONLY HAVE YOU
5. Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words, I
understand your voice when it is speaking to me.
6. Be aware of however you treat me, I will never forget it.
7. Before you hit me, remember that I have teeth that can
easily crush the bones in your hand, but I choose not to
bite you.
8. Before you scold me for being lazy or un-cooperative, ask
yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm
not getting the right food, I've been out in the sun too
long, or my heart may be getting old and weak.
9. Take care of me when I get old. You too, will grow old.
10. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say "I can't bear
to watch it" or, "let it happen in my absence".
Everything is easier for ME if you are there. Remember
I love you.
