Happy Christmas!!

HAPPY CHRISTMAS to all of our friends and loved ones at the Cat Blogosphere. We hope Santa Paws brings all of you good treats, toys and lots of love too. This year we are grateful for the love and friendship of all of you and hope it continues for years to come!

Our Christmas wish this year is a simple one - we hope that all of our poor, cold, sad and lonely homeless furry friends find warm and loving furrever homes. If Santa Paws could only bring us that, our hearts would be full this holiday season.

Fagin Good Kitten

Kitties, ME think ME is saved!! You know how I told you kitties yesterday that ME lives with Samwise Santa Paws? Well, ME think Samwise Santa Paws may have forgotten all about BAD FAGIN because while FAGIN was nice all last night, Beaux was BAD!! And ME mean BAD!!

First, Beaux pulled on the table cloth and knocked all of our kitty food to the ground AND a mug of Mommy's too. The mug shattered and Mommy and Daddy were not happy. Then, Beaux chased us a lot and gots in BIG TROUBLE for that. And THEN, Beaux ATE MOMMY'S EYEGLASSES!! ME not kidding - he chewed up one whole side to the point Mommy said she is gonna have to buy new ones cause you cannot fix the old ones. Mommy has contacts so she is not blind but she is not happy at all.

So I think ME am safe kitties!! Beaux is the BAD ONE and I made it a point to be cute and cuddly and even gave Mommy and Daddy the Puss-in-Boots look - you kitties know that look - this one!!Mommy said all ME needed was a hat and ME would have been PURRFECT!! hehehehehehe. See Samwise Santa Paws? ME good kitten. Nice, sweet kitten. Me should gets LOTS of TOYS and TREATS!! YAY!!!!!

Kitties, it's ME - Fagin. You will not believe what ME found out this weekend - ME thinks ME lives with SANTA PAWS!! REALLY!! LOOK!!

ME was taking a picture of my new toy to show everyone - isn't it a cool toy? You can climb it and it has things you can WHAP on it too! ME likes my new toy even though Dante says it's really something called a Crimmas Tree and that ME am not supposed to climb it and WHAP! it and stuff. Anyway, while ME was taking the picture, ME saw this!!!

What is Daddy doing to Sammy? ME saw this and got really confused so ME decided to watch and see what happened next....

Oh, Daddy is putting clothes on Samwise - but wait, those clothes look familiar. Red and white and jackety like..... (gulp)..... like SANTA PAWS!!!!

Look at Samwise kitties!! He has a Santa Paws outfit. I think he may be THE Santa Paws and if he is kitties, then ME am in trouble cause Samwise knows that ME have not be the best of kittens. What am ME gonna do????!?!!! What if Samwise Santa Paws brings ME dog food for ME stocking and not cat treats?? ME did not know he was Santa Paws!! ME would have been better!! ME would not have attacked his tail!! Why didn't anyone tell ME?????? ME want presents!! WAH!!!!!!! BILLY! KITTIES!!! HELP!!! ME WANT PRESENTS AND ME BEEN BAD TO SANTA PAWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Maiming Mancat Monday

We think that every mancat should be prepared to ATTACK and MAIM and maybe even KILL the innernet no repair guy when he comes ofur to your house and cannot repair your innernets!! Can you believe it kitties - we are without innernets at our house!! Our innernets went away Saturday and Daddy called to have them come and bring the innernets back. Well, they sent some no repair guy out on Sunday and all he could say was that it was not a "user error" and that they would have to get the real tech support guy out sometime later in the week Daddy said this was the "idiot fixer layer of tech support" and now that they know Daddy is not an idiot, maybe we can get the innernets back. Do you know what that means kitties?? That means that they thought our Daddy was an idiot woofie or something who forget to turn on the computer or something when he called to say that our innernets was gone. How dare they!! Our Daddy is smart - he knows when innernets goes away and when they doesn't. HMPH!!!

We is mad because we had pictures we wanted to show you but we cannot because we has no innernets to upload them and Mommy can only quickly post our unhappy message from work. HMPH!! Mancats unite - let's get the mean innernet no repair guy and the innernets too for going away!! BAD INNERNETS!!!!!!!

Wordy Wednesday

The other day, Mommy looked at Fagin and was struck but what a difference 10 months can make. Just look:

Then: An itty bitty 10 day old kitty called "Little Kitty" or "LK" as the blogosphere came to name him. He weighed less than a pound and had a very uncertain future. His last sibling has just left for the Bridge and LK was all alone but had some humans and kitties and woofies and buns from all over the world who were purring and pulling for him to just live another day.

Now: A 10 month old kitty named Fagin whohas been named Quarter Master of the Black Furrball. He weighs, as of last weekend, 13 pounds. He is no longer an orphaned kitty, but has 4 bro-furrs (2 kitties and 2 woofies) and a Mommy and Daddy too. Mommy is already planning his One Year Birthday Celebration and is trying to convince herself that yes, he can date in 2 months. How they grow!!!

PS: We wanted to let everyone know hat we are sorry for not getting around to visit our friends. Mommy is very sick with what is basically pneumonia and gets tired and sleepy so easy. Please know that we are thinking of you all and hope to see you all soon!! Lots of love! - Purrageous Pirates

Tattling on Tuesday

Hello kitties! First, we want to thank all of you for coming by and helping us surprise Beaux on his Gotcha Day last week. We all had a lot of fun and that was mostly because all of you were here to make the day special. Now, for today's post we are going to show you what Beaux did the evening of his Gotcha Day.

Mommy came home and let the woofies out. Well, later she went to let them back inside and though Samwise came inside immediately, she did not see Beaux anywhere. She looked and looked and realized that the dog in the fenced yard next door looked a lot like Beaux.....
Even the collar was the right color. But the woofie next door looks nothing at all like this - he is small and brown not black and fluffy like was a mystery until Mommy saw this!!

Uh oh - it looks like Beaux has been digging again and this time, he dug UNDER THE FENCE!!

Yep, that dog that looked like Beaux's in the neighbor's yard was actually Beaux! Silly dog dug himself into the yard next door and was fenced in there too. The sad thing was that the next door dog, who is a great friend of Beaux's, was not even home. Moppy was out with his parents so Beaux dug next door for nothing!!
Silly woofie had to stay next door until Mommy and Daddy came to get him!! HAHAHAHAHA!!!

As you can see, even Samwise thought it was hillarious!! Silly woofie! Doesn't he know that home is always the best??

Can you Keep a Secret?

Can you guys keep a secret? Beaux is sleeping so we can tell you all about it now but shhhh! We do not want to wake him up, its a surprise!!
Tommorow, December 3rd, is Beaux's official Gotcha Day!! This means that he has been living with us for 4 whole years now and that he is roughly 5 years old now!! Yep, 4 years ago Mommy and Daddy went to the Sad Place (aka The Pound) and rescued Beaux and brought him home to live with us. Samwise and Captain Jack were already here, so that means Beaux was the 3rd fuzzy child to join Mommy and Daddy.

In order to celeybrate, we will be having a surprise Gotcha Day party for Beaux tommorow here on our bloggie. We hope that all of you kitties and your woofie friends will stop by to help us wish Beaux a Happy Gotcha Day. Don't tell him though, we want to surprise him!!! We hope to see you all tommorow!!

We're Back

Hello kitties, we are back after our extended holiday break! We did not mean to be gone so long but well, Mommy had a different idea. She made plans, even though we had different ideas. Thursday we knew she and Daddy would be going to Nana and Granpa's house and taking Samwise with them cause Thanksgiving is Samwise's favorite day because he gets all the turkey he wants until he literally passes out from it! In fact, he calls it "Turkey Coma Day." No kitties, it was the other days we took issue with.

On Thursday night we heard Mommy talking about her plans so we made some plans of our own. We decided to lay on Mommy and look cute and thought there was no way she would leave. Just look at us!!

This is Captain Jack laying on Mommy's legs to hold her down with his strength and cuteness.

Here is Dante showing off his adorable orange tummy. No way she could leave this!!

And last but not least, Fagin the Twitten (hahahaha) with his sleepy flirty look.

But alas, this did not work and Mommy ABADONED us on Friday and Saturday both for her plans. Tybalt, part of this is your Mommy's fault as she schemed with our Mommy to abadon us all so they could see that silly vampire movie together. And if that was not bad enough, Mommy left us the very next day to meet another friend for lunch and coffee. Sigh. She owes Daddy though because we are not too mad at her because our wonderful Daddy stayed home all weekend with us. He even cooked a huge turkey for us while Mommy was gone and fed us so we would know what Samwise meant about turkey comas. Oh we love Daddy! Mommy, you got some work to do - you too Aunt Rini for abadoning Tybalt and the Twins!! Bad women!!! Anyway kitties, we missed all of our friends (and two lovely lady kitties Miss Boo and Pearl) and are glad to be back!!!

Tattling Tuesday

First of all, we want to thank you all for your kind words and thoughts regarding our friend Quasimodo. Mommy talked to Aunt Susan yesterday and though she is in a lot of pain, she admits that it was time for the Moo to leave us. He will be very missed by lots of people.

Now, onto our tattling part. Last night, Fagin was christened with a new nickname. Now Fagin is called many things in our house - Faginator, the Menance, Fagin-no (meaning "Fagin, NO!" but one word) just to name a few. However, last night as Fagin was trying to drink Daddy's martini (he is an alcoholic kitties), he was christened with the best of all of his nicknames - The Twitten (think "kitten" and "twit" combined).
He hates it, but we love it!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! The Twitten!! HAHAHAHA! Too right it is!!

Remembering our Friend

Uncle Dave called last night to tell us some very bad news. You guys may remember Quasimodo, the one eyed Persian cat that owned Aunt Susan and Uncle Dave. Quasi had not been eating for two days and had gotten really thin. He was actively in kidney failure, and though we all knew he would be leaving for the bridge, we did not know it would be so soon. Around 9pm last night, Quasi crashed in Aunt Susan's arms as she was trying to determine how to best treat him. Unfortunately, she could not bring him back and Quasi left us for the Bridge. We are all very very sad here at the Black Furrball and to honour our friend, we dedicate this post to one brave pirate kitty. We'll miss you and we love you.

Wordy, Tattling Wednesday

We call this Wednesday: "Mommy's new obsession" or "WHY WE ARE BEING IGONRED!!"

She has all of the books, she downloaded the soundtrack this weekend and now she is talking about getting Aunt Susan and Tybalt's Mommy (Happy Birthday Aunt Rini!!) to go see the movie with her soon. It's a book woman and you're way too old for him anyway!! I think you are right kitties, we gonna make her walk the plank soon if she keeps swooning like a ridiculous teenager and ignoring us and not giving us enough attention and nummies. Sigh. Did we mention she also adores True Blood and swoons over Eric and Sam there? Pathetic!!

Tattle Tuesday

Today, we are going to tattle on our so called Mommy and the horrible experience she put us through. It all started Sunday night when it was time for our crunchy bowls to be filled. We heard Daddy say "Uh oh, we're out." What could that mean? They are out of what? It couldn't be our food could it? Nah, and we did not hear Mommy say "Just give them some woofie food until tommorow." No, not our Mommy we thought. She is too good of a Mommy for that. We were wrong.

Monday comes around and there is more weird (it had better not have been woofie) food in our bowls and the so called Mommy person says 'I know kitties, and I am sorry, but Daddy will get you some food on the way home." Well, day hunting ends and Mommy comes home and guess what - we have no foods at all! No cat food, no woofie food (ick ick bleh), NOTHING!! Sure she gave us some Tem-ta-shuns but still!! So what did we do? We STARED at her and plotted. She sat down to try to read her book (some stupid series about teenage vampires that has a movie coming out soon that she is all excited about for some reason) but we knew what to do. We all three jumped on the couch and STARED as hard as we could. And you know what kitties? It worked. She picked up the phone (we think her hands were even shaking in fear) and called Daddy and said, "You had better get some cat food here and soon. I think they are plotting at my death if they are not fed soon."

Hahahahahaha!! That's right woman!! Bad so called Mommy person!! So Daddy came home and fed us (Daddy good, Mommy bad!!) and then do you know what that woman did? She said, "Dante is still sneezing. I think he needs a cold tablet." And she SHOVED A PILL DOWN DANTE'S THROAT!! That's it woman!! You are hereby notified that you are under observation and we are determining your punishment. Fagin said to tear up all of your Twilight books, including the ones you have not finished, Dante said to wait til you are sleeping and then put furr down your throat so you choke like he did on the pill, Jack said to meow at you all night until sleep is a bittersweet memory. We are still deciding so beware woman!! You are in so much trouble!!

Mancat Monday

A real mancat knows how to defend his lady when she has been wronged. Excuse me, Mrs Pearl's Mommy, but since you have been so mean to my beautiful pirate maiden, the Black Pearl, I am going to give you this menancing look until you make amends with my lady. How dare you neglect my Pearl so badly? I expect to see not just Pearl Week, but Pearl MONTH!! Do not invoke the wrath of Sir Dante Barbossa of the Black Furrball! You would not like it!! Me'ARGGGG!!!!

I am scary, aren't I kitties? Does my winky eye make me look extra vicious? What do you think?

Fagin the Thief

Fagin: Hey kitties, this is Fagin. YAY!! I gotta tell you about what happened last night. My mommy said something very mean to me kitties. She called me "Fagin the Thief" and said that will be one of my new nicknames. But its not my fault kitties, really its not! It's all the chicken's fault!!

You see, last night Daddy made nummy chicken and cheese quesadillas for him and Mommy. Well, Mommy ate all of hers but ONE LONELY piece which she left on her plate that she set down on the counter. She then went outside to do something with the woofies and I was just sitting there - honest I was - when the quesadilla said to me: "Fagin! Fagin! Do not leave me here all alone, all by myself. Fagin! I need to be eaten!" And then it began to cry, it really did, so I jumped up on the counter and NOM NOM NOMed the piece of quesadilla, just as it asked me too. And Mommy did not even know - she thought Daddy ate it because I left no incriminating evidence. Later when he ratted me out (BAD DADDY!) she called me "Fagin the Thief!!" Well, what do you expect woman!! Look what character you named me for - the head thief!!

Purrageous Mom: Fagin, that is a good story and all but what about Daddy's missing shrimps from the night before?

Fagin: I do not know Mommy - maybe they swam away? Look! What's that?!?! (giggles are heard as Fagin runs off)

Happy Veterans Day

In the United States, it is Veterans Day today - a day to honor all of those brave men and women who have served in the US Military. And just look at what Mommy found for us to put on the bloggie today:

It is a picture of our Daddy when he was in the Marine Corp a long time ago. He was just 19 and right out of boot camp. Daddy comes from a military family and that means that his father served in the Air Force, his brother and himself were both Marines, and both of his sisters served at least some time in the Army. Mommy says that her family was not so military because only Grandpa served in the Navy.

We want to say thank you to all of the veterans who have guarded us and protected us. We hope that you enjoy your day.

Mini Mancat Monday

Heya kitties, it's ME! Fagin!! YAY!! I got the bloggie today because I have a question for all of you big cats out there.You see, yesterday as we were relaxing in bed on Sunday morning I saw that Mommy's new book had this REALLY FUN BOOKMARK hanging out of it. I reached over to grab it and realized it was SO FUN to ATTACK!!! It has this tassel that was fun to whap and PLAYPLAYPLAY with! YAY!!! PLAYPLAYPLAY!

But then, I heard this: "You had better be good Fagin and not lose Mommy's place. Santa Paws is coming soon and he only brings treats and toys to good kitties and buns and woofies."

Kitties, who is this Santa Paws? Mommy says he brings treats and toys but when and how? And why only to good kitties and buns and woofies? How does he know when we is bad and when we is good? Did he see all of those times when I attacked Dante or what about when I stole that cheeseburger and NOMed NOMed NOMed it? Me wants treats and toys - Fagin likes FOODS and TOYS - but what if he does not like me and does not come? What if he brings Captain Jack and Dante things, but does not bring me anything?? What if he is mean?!?! I think Fagin is scared now kitties - this Santa Paws person sounds really scary!!!!! Is he??!?! Should I try to find a way to keep him from coming? What should Fagin do?!?!?!?!

Election Day

If your human lives in the United States, please remind them to go out and vote today. If they do, they may even get a cool sticker to prove to the other humans that they voted. Mommy and Daddy went this morning and waited 3 whole hours to vote but they did it and they got stickers like this! YAY!!!

It has a peach on it because we live in Georgia and apparently Georgia is known as the "Peach State". We've never eaten peaches but Mommy says they are good. We have to tell you what Fagin did last night kitties- he had a whole half of a cheeseburger all on his own and without permission. He stole it off of the counter and NOM-NOM-NOMed it before anyone could take it away from him! Silly kitty!!

Mancat Monday

All good mancats enjoy spooky things and this year, we really liked all of the pumpkins that our beans and our humans friends carved. Our Daddy carved the haunted house one in the middle and our friends (Uncle Dave, Aunt Susan, Uncle Mikey, and Uncle Mark) carved the others. Mommy did not carve one this year because she decided she would rather cuddle with us that day. But Mommy did do other Halloweeny and spooky things this year. Just look!!

Once again this year Mommy was the good witch in the graveyard at Aunt Susan and Uncle Dave's house. Basically she stands at the end of the driveway and hands out candy to the kids who are too afraid to walk to the Wicked Witch (our friend Lynne) at the top of the driveway. Aunt Susan said every witch has to have a cat so Mommy carried this little stuffed guy around and pronounced that it looked just like Fagin! Wasn't she an excellent good witch? We wonder if she got to ride around on a broom like Tybalt's sisfur Holly does.....

Happy Halloween!!

Boo!!! Happy Halloween kitties!! We are looking forward to a fun and spooky night here at the Black Furrball!! Mommy is going to be a witch and we are not sure what Daddy is dressing up as but we are sure its going to be scary!!
We were going to show you some pictures of the jack-o-latterns our humans carved but Daddy left Mommy's camera at work so you'll have to enjoy these pictures we found to set the mood!!

We got this picture to honor our friend Pat who tonight, as he does every Halloween night, will recite The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe purely from memory for our beans and friends at Aunt Susan and Uncle Dave's infamous Halloween party. Mommy may see if she can record it this year so everyone can see it. Pat does a wonderful job!!

Captain Jack will be spending Halloween with Lady Boo, Dante wants to spend the evening with Pearl and Beaux will be helping George to guard her home. Fagin says if any kitty wants to come over and PLAYPLAYPLAY for Halloween, we got plenty of treats and even some treats to share!!
