We hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. Mom decided to desert us overnight to go play and sleep with a bunch of Camie dogs. One of her friends has 4 greyhounds, so she took Camie and watched them overnight. She came home reeking of strange dogs. I had to bathe myself just to get the stink off of me. We are glad she has her normal scent back now.

1. Me chasded Cody under the bed. Me not like Cody much, so me chasded him under the bed - Gracie thinks he belongs under there.
2. Me used MLP's wicker dresser as a scratching post. It's perfect for that, so Gracie has to stretch and scratch, scratch, scratch.
3. Me pokded Tavi when he walked by. But he swatted me back, so me had to pokded him again.
4. Me tasted the MLP's dinner. It was okay.
5. Me convinced Tavi to play THoE at 2 in the morning just as the MLP was trying to go to sleep.
6. Me walked across the computer 50 million times.
7. Me chasded Cody again.
8. Me scratched, scratched, scratched, scratched, scratched in the litter box. Me likes to makded sure everything is well covered.
9. Me ignored the MLP when she called for Gracie. Me just kept hollering for her so she would come to me, not the other way around.
10. Me sat near Tavi and let him lick Gracie's head.
11. Me sat with Camie and purred.
12. Me fell asleep in a cute position.
13. Me loved on the MLP and prickded her lots. Me liked it so much, me did it almost every day.

We entered a contest on Facebook, and would really appreciate your votes. We entered the Cutest Senior Cat on Facebook contest. nThis is one of Mom's favorite pictures of Tiki and I before he went to the bridge. She loves it because we are holding paws. It looks like you can vote once per day and we would love it if you would vote for us.
My rule for today: If you enter a contest, don't be ashamed to beg for votes.

Okay, the person who calls herself Our Mom is totally useless. She still can't find her flashy box (not that she's really tried hard to find it). First it was because she was sick, and now it is because she has school. We got something really cool in the mail, and we want to show everyone. There is a picture of it somewhere here on our blog, but we want to see it in person, and Mom won't open the package 'til she can take pictures. Anyone want to trade Mom's for a while?

Mom was home with us for almost a whole week. She had Wednesday off, and only went to work for about 2-1/2 hours on Thursday, and was home with us all of Friday, most of Saturday, and all of Sunday. We've been doing a really good job of holding her legs down for her so she doesn't fall off the couch or the bed. She spent most of the the time asleep, except for yesterday. She was still laying down on the couch, but she spent a lot of time playing with a guy named Tivo. She went back to work today. We are not very happy about having our napping buddy gone again. She said it was only for a week and a half, and then she would be home again for a long weekend, and then she said before we know it, she will have winter vacation off and be home with us for two whole weeks. We can't wait. We love it when Mom is home to give us extra treats and nap time with her.

I am still really good at demanding treats. And Mom almost always complies with my demands. She even came home early yesterday and is going to stay home today to make sure we get treats on demand. Of course, when she came home yesterday, she ended up sleeping for 5 hours. And she told us she plans on doing even more sleeping today. We think because she is staying home, she should spend time with us, not sleeping on the couch.

Today, we thought we would post a few posters from WWII as a way of paying tribute to all of our veterans.
We also want to thank our Papa who served in the Air Force for 26 years. He was a Flight Simulator Technician. All pilots have to use a flight simulator to practice situations where it is unsafe to do it in a real plane - such as landing in bad weather, or having an engine go out. Our Papa made sure that the pilots had working flight simulators to practice in so that they would be safer if they were ever faced with one of those situations in real life. He may not have been in a combat situation, but he made sure that the pilots were able to be well trained before they got there. Thank you to all our veterans, whether they were in combat or not.

Me Gracie. Me sad today. Me not always like Jade, but me miss her now. Mommy says for me to tell everyone "Thank you!" So, thank you everyone for your purrs and condolences and hugs for Jade and for us. We are so thankful we have friends like you. Tavi and Me, Gracie, are spending lots of time loving on Mommy. Her is still sad, but her knows her did the right thing, and her knows Jade is healthier and happier at the Bridge.

Jade ran off to the bridge a little while ago. I took her in to the emergency vet, and while they were writing up an estimate of how much it would cost to run all of the tests, I was alone in the room with her. I told her that if she needed to run off to be better to go ahead. She immediately started gasping for breath. The vet came back in and said she was going, and I told him to put her to sleep so she wouldn't suffer anymore. I only had her for a little over a year, but it doesn't lessen the pain of missing her. I know she is happy and healthy again, but I will miss her very much. Thank you all for your purrs. I am sure they brought her comfort in her last hours.

Hi, Camie's Kitties Mom here. I was hoping I could get some purrs for Jade please. I hadn't seen her in a couple of days which is not unusual, but I took some food into my room to eat, and she didn't show her face which is unusual. She loves to steal food from my plate. Anyway, I found her under my bed in the back corner - I had to pull my bed totally apart to get her, and she is a very sick lady. She is very lethargic, and feels a little warm to me. She is drinking lots of water, and will take a lick or two of baby food, but doesn't seem that interested in eating. I've gotten her to eat two syringes of watered down food. If she isn't looking better by tomorrow, I will take her into the emergency vet, otherwise, I will take her into our regular vet on Monday. Anyway, if you wouldn't mind sending some purrs her way, she could sure use them. Thanks.
BTW - Gracie is all over her stomach bug. It looked like it was just a 24 hour thing.

This is how I spent my weekend - well this, and napping. Mom deserted us both days. On Saturday, she went to a friends' house, and on Sunday, she went into her day hunting place, even though she doesn't day hunt on Sundays. She was gone all day too. She did say she would be home one day the week after next, so I guess that it's okay that she left us both days.
