I received two mice from Ernie's mom, suspiciously the packaging said there should be three mice... It seems one of my country cousins must not have learned that its better to give than receive.

Love at first taste
Monday, December 15, 2008
Burt has been busy trying to keep the hummingbird feeder thawed out. Every hour or so he goes out and replaces the water so the little birds can have food. I would just like to say that I don't get food every hour, but these wild savage birds get to eat, and in plain site of my bed!
I had a little snow experience yesterday, I begged them to take me out just to sniff for a few minutes. I will continue appreciating it from one of my warm indoor perches.
This is yours truly. I call this one "Awe and Wonder"
"Mildly Annoyed and Displeased"
"Hatred and Rage"

Have a Cocktail. Save a Kitten.
Event Date: 11/03/2008 05:00 PM
Event Location: Vault Martini, 226 NW 12th Avenue (at Everett)
Vault Martini and Neighborhood Notes are joining forces on Monday, November 3 in a happy hour benefit for the Feral Cat Coalition. The event is from 5-7pm. There will be a happy hour menu through the event: $5 martinis and food specials!
Thousands of cats and kittens in the Portland Metro are in need of homes. Feral is another term for cats born in the wild. These wild cats are often a result of mama cats dying during birth or from pets that have not been spayed or neutered. Sex education for your pet, cat adoption and community awareness will put and end to feral cats.
The Feral Cat coalition dedicates their efforts to finding homes for thousands of furry little friends who have been left in the wild.
Don't worry, we won't be sending you home with a kitten. However, 15% of your tab will be donated to saving cats and kittens across Portland. Party favors will be sent home with all cat owners.
We hope that you can make it.

Local kitty blog The Cats Meow, reminds us today that we black cats are indeed genetic marvels. The genes that make my fur so dark and luxurious are recessive. It takes two copies of the black fur gene to make us black cats so mysterious...

Its hunting season, and she's been taking advantage of the healthy squirrel population that passes through the area en route to the giant walnut tree across the street. Ernie took me out to gawk tonight when he got home from work, and there she was, comfortably resting in her "squirrel stand," waiting for an unsuspecting fluffy tailed rodent to wander by.
I'm not judgin, but it seems Pom-Pom is getting wider and the squirrel population is getting scared. Damn girl, at least clean up those fluffy tail parts you left in the alley.
She looks like some sort of crazy squirrel eating monkey!

Not even cats are safe from the humiliation of Japanese game shows.
Unsuspecting homeless felines are lured in with fish of increasing sizes, until they're so large that many cats give up, but the smart cats know to just eat the fish down to a size that is manageable, then carry it off to a quiet spot to eat the good bits.
The video is kinda long, and Ernie said it took awhile to figure out exactly what was going on because he says its "all in Japanese," whatever that means...

Domestic Short Hair-black
Moscow is almost 4 years old and a super sweet boy who gets along with dogs. Definitely the strong, silent type, he's affectionate and friendly. At 14 pounds, he's an armful, but he'd really like to be your armful. He's a peace-loving kitty who's hoping you'll soon be "Russian" in to get him.
FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY the "Better with a Buddy" program is back! Adopt one cat or kitten and get $50 off of the adoption price of a second cat or kitten!

** Please note: All kittens must be altered before they can go home with their new family. There are no exceptions to this policy.
Kittens are generally altered between 10 and 11 weeks of age because we have a surgery minimum weight requirement of 2.25 lbs. If you are doing a pre-adopt (adopting a kitten before alter surgery) please inquire about the kitten's current weight. Kittens gain about 1/4 of a lb per week and you can estimate alter date from there. Remember this is just an estimate. Thank you for understanding that these policies are based on ensuring the best possible start for our kittens.
This pet is up to date with routine shots.
This pet is already house trained.
This pet has been altered.

Long story short, they returned empty handed and all I received were some sloppy drunk pettings, and this lousy picture of a papier-mâché pigeon. Ick!
This weekend they're going to Manzanita and they best not return empty handed, if they know whats good for the house plants!
I love birds, but even I don't care for pigeons...
