(Actually, as you can tell, we really love each other - he was coming to give me some head butts.)
We have some contest winners.
Congratulations to Derby - He got the most right. The only one he missed (and no-cat got it right) was Yorktown.
Mr. Hendrix was second with 2 incorrect.
Tybalt and Chey & Gemini had a tie for third place with 3 incorrect.
Junior, Finn & Buddy, PB &J, and Miss Peach were all runner's up.
We would like to reward you all for trying. We will be contacting you on your blogs with contact information. Thank you all for trying our little contest. We know it was hard, but hopefully we can show you more pictures of Mom's favorite American city if we can stow away in her luggage.
In other news, Cody is very excited because Tybalt's sisters are coming over to play today. Mom will be gone most of the day, but Tiki, Tavi, and Camie have agreed to act as chaperone's. We hope Tybalt will come also.

Mom said we could have a little contest. As we said yesterday, Mom will be leaving us in a week to go to the Washington DC area. All of these pictures are of places that Mom will be visiting with her students. We decided to have a contest to see if any of you could name each of the places. They are all within about 2-3 hours of Washington DC and range from Virginia to Pennsylvania and they all have to do with American history (with the exception of one). The picture number is below the picture. The first cat (etc.) to guess all correct (or the one who comes closest) will win a prize package. We will also have a 2nd and 3rd place winner. Good luck and have fun.Picture 1 - Valley Forge, PA
Picture 3 - Liberty Bell, Philadelphia, PA

Sooooooo..........here is Cody as Mom sees him from outside. As you can see, even from outside, he looks like he is going to take off. In fact, this is where he moved to seconds after Mom took the first picture.
If you notice the way the curtains are pushed back, that is totally our fault. We like to walk under the curtains and hook one side with our tails and pull it along with us. It makes them all bunch up in the middle and makes Mom frustrated. She fixes them all the time, only to walk back into the living room 15 minutes later to see them all bunched up again - hehe. Doesn't she realize they are better this way. You can also see the reflection of Mom's car in the window.

In other news, Mom can report that she thinks Cody has really soft fur. He let her scratch his neck and cheek for about 10-15 seconds yesterday while Mom was giving him some temptations. He didn't run away after she stopped. He stayed there and ate some more treats, but he was a little further away. Still, this is a big step for him. Yea!

Mom said she is going to help us with our name meme tomorrow. She is too tired tonight.

Hi, I was tagged by Shadow (Chance's woofie sibling) for the middle name meme.
Here are the rules:
1. You have to post the rules before you give your answers.
2. You must list one fact about yourself beginning with each letter of your middle name. (If you don't have a middle name, use your maiden name or your mother's maiden name).
3. At the end of your blog post, you need to tag one person (or blogger of another species) for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged.)
I don't have a middle name, maiden name and mom isn't married, so she doesn't have a maiden name either, so I am going to use the nickname I am called most - Bugs or Bugsie.
B - Beautiful. Mom calls me this all the time. I happen to agree with her.
U - Un-Barker - hehe - I don't bark
G - Graceful - Mom thinks all greys are graceful.
S - Silly - Mom calls me this when I am playing. I like to run in circles and jump sideways at her.
I - Inactive - I sleep almost as much as a cat.
E - Extrovert - I used to be an introvert and would hide from everyone - but now, I am an extrovert. I love to go up to people and demand that they love me.
I am going to tag Diamond, Parker's woofie, and my 3 feline brothers. They will do theirs tomorrow - poor mom - hehe.

You can barely see Cody in this one because it is so dark.Where is Tavi's head - it has completely disappeared.She managed to take the picture just as Tavi walked off.She can't keep herself out of the picture. We don't mind an occasional hand - especially when its giving us treats, or skritches. But she needs to keep the rest of her body parts out of our pictures!She must not like ears too much. She keeps cutting them off.Tiki's nose - where has it gone?
Thanks again everyone for participating in our contest, and for the well wishes. Mom put off letting us blog for over a year, and we often wondered how on earth we would think of things to say for 100 posts, but somehow it just came easily. It is due largely to the wonderful friends we have made here. Thank you!

Our Meezer Rule for the day: When you are snuggling with your brother, moms will always give you extra loving if you are holding each other's paws.

Thirteen things that Mom did to annoy us this week.
1. She washed all of our bedding and removed all of our smells and then made our Gizzy clash with the towel behind it.
2. She didn't wake up to give us our breakfast on time over the weekend.
3. She left us to go day hunting.
4. She took Monday off of work, but didn't stay home with us.
5. She told us she was going to be gone most of the weekend.
6. She didn't give us our Temptations every night.
7. She had the flashy box out too much.
8. She put up coverings over our window in our room. We won't have sun anymore (Mom here - they are just sheers, and the sun will still come thru boys).
9. She has woken up late the last two days and we haven't had our morning conversation time.
10. She hasn't been eating any food that we want to share with her.
11. She hasn't taken us on another walk yet.
12. She comes in when we are taking a nap and wakes us up by draping our toys on us (see above)
13. She has been falling asleep way too early, and we haven't been able to visit all of our friends.
We've been trying to load a picture for over 6 hours and are giving up because Mom has to get to work. Guess we are next to be hit by the blogger bug. Updated - We finally got it to load.

In other news, this is our 92nd post, and if we figured it right - next Wednesday, the 19th will be our 100th post, and Mom said that we could have a contest. We thought and thought about what to do - because we have already said when it will occur, and guessing the time isn't good, because sometimes Mom will post early and put 12:01 AM as our time. Sooooo, anyway, we decided to award a prize to the 13th individual comment on our blog next Wednesday. Why the thirteenth you ask?? Because 13 is Mom's favorite number, and so many people think it is unlucky, so next Wednesday, we decided to make it lucky! Mom will hide the comments for that day, so no-one will know, and we will pick out some fun stuff. Any animal blogger can comment that day. Whatever prizes Mom picks will be sent anywhere in the world and we will customize it to the animal that wins. Good luck!
