Dear Friends,

Can you help me out? Dubby asked a question this morning and I don't know the answer.
Dubby wants to know what She does with the stuff She scoops out of the cat litter box. I assumed She took it to the Museum Archives for safe-keeping but I've never really thought about it. Fish is no help because he's on a silent retreat under his turtle blanket.

What do your people do with the scooped cat litter? Any ideas?

Dear Whistle and Fish,
Please do well in school at Prof. Whiskers. We want you to have many career options. Poor grades limit your university and grad school choices.
Study this photograph. This ginger kitty is industrious but wouldn't it get boring to iron human shirts all day long? I bet he wishes he'd paid more attention in catechetics class.
P.S. Thanks to Aunt Songbird for the photo!

Amie's Meme

My pal, Amie, over by www.redheelerranchblog.blogspot.com, tagged me for a meme!
Here are the rules:
- Link to the person that tagged you.
- Post the rules on your blog.
- Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.
- Tag six people and at the end of your post, link to their blogs.
- Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

I like all of Amie's six things. She is one brave dog! She would love my dog, Sister, who is my Nanny. I love Sister!

1.Like Amie, I have freckles! My freckles are on my nose.
2. I have orange dots on my tummy. When I show Mom my tummy, she scratches me there.
3. I stand up to eat Greenies, my favorite cat treats.
4. I catch gekkos when they get into my house. I growl when I find one.
5. My name is Whistle, not "Adorable!" but Mom calls me "Adorable!" anyway.
6. I love Fish and Dubby who are my brothers.

I have more things to say but I think I should stop at six.

I don't know who else to ask because I know all of you want to play. Would you please tag yourself?

Whistle, this is MY blog

A Funny Dog

Sister, my dog, is my favorite, but this is a COOL dog, too.

Whistle, just glad to be here

Brrrr! Cold here! Dubby is napping on pieces of a felted sweater. He's wearing a wool scarf!

Hope you are warm and toasty where you are.

Yours Very Truly,

Whistle, the cat who blogs and whose blog this is

Hey Spooky (go here: http://mewsingsbyspooky.blogspot.com/), thanks for adding me to your meme! I don't even know what that is except my brother, Fish, says it is French for "grandmother" which I know is wrong.

I know all the same people you do, mostly so I don't know who to tag.

It's cold here. I'm sitting on my Mom's lap to blog. I hope she isn't reading this and I am not sitting on her lap to reach the keyboard. She's very warm. I am very tall in real life. Tall and big.

Maybe a meme is a good way to let EVERYBODY know that MY BIRTHDAY is August 28.
I like Greenies,if you worry about what to get me.

Gotta run. Time for Bathtub Bashing where Fish and I get into the bathtub and beat each other up! Great times!

This big manilla envelope came addressed to me today.

I'm invited to subscribe to SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN.

No thanks. I take THE NEW YORKER and that's enough.

Fish says S.A. got my address from The New Yorker but I say Scientific American knows how smart I am.

Guest Blogger: Fish the Cat

This is me, Fish. I am in the same room with MY NEW TURTLE QUILT! My Sue sent this quilt to me. It has TURTLES! She is Truffles and Ouzo's Mom.

Here it is!

See how it has a soft place for me to snuggle under to contemplate the Universe?

I feel very grateful. I knew my old quilt would go into pieces and be put away. Now I have a new quilt.

Can you believe what happens when you ask?

Please, when you think of a contented cat, picture me.

I love Sue. She knows what cats like.

Dear Friends,

I have a favor to ask of you.

My turtle quilt is disintegrating. My turtle quilt is my happy companion. I've had it since I was a wee kitten. My turtle quilt comforted me last year during my leg fracture surgery.

I go under it to meditate and nap. I think deep thoughts while I retreat in privacy. I am a contemplative cat.

If you see a quilt which looks just like this one, please get it for me.

I don't want any quilt, just my turtle quilt.

It was designed for babies and contemplative cats.

I think you might find one at a thrift shop or someplace where people recycle household goods.

Please find a replacement turtle quilt and mail it to me.

My address is: Fish the Cat,My House,U.S.A.

Many thanks for any help you may be able to offer.

Happy New Year

Our family had lots of people over to eat ham, cabbage and black-eyed peas with rice.

The ham was on the kitchen counter.

This picture is not from our house because Mom said she doesn't serve New Year's Day company on red plastic plates.

All I know is that I didn't get any ham. Nobody with furry feet got any.

We had to take our naps in Mom's bedroom. Away from the food and people.

Next year, I'm going the the par tay and eat HAM.

I'll be 3 this year. On August 28th if you need to write this in your new 2008 agenda.
