Hello, everyone!
This is Tilly. We have been quite busy, but I've FINALLY taken the time to write. Mum just got back from Maine a while ago. She went to visit Grandma and Mollie. She helped Grandma set up the Feliway smelly stuff that is supposed to calm Mollie. Paws crossed, everyone!
Many kitties have commented on the mouse in the glass. Dad did say it made the Guinness taste funny...
We have not found any more mice( Thank goodness for THAT- Mum) so I think we have scared them all away. I think such hard-working kitties deserve extra treats, but the beans are trying to limit the treat supply. We don't see the wood chuck anymore either; Mum thinks he has moved to the neighbor's yard. Lots of nice flowers and veg there.
Poor Fat Eric is back in kitty jail. He is well cared for, but that isn't the point. We were really hoping he could visit. We hope his beans enjoy Boston- it's a wonderful city!
Toby has been pushy lately. The other night he pushed me away from my dish and started eating! Dad had to squirt him with the plant mister. Then Toby ran away since he's a coward. At last I got to eat in peace. Now that Mum is home, he won't get away with stuff like that.
I was watching Mrs. B's video. She is a rubenesque lady who even while she's trying to retrieve treats is elegant.( Unlike the previous sentence.) Mum has heard of these treat balls but has never got one. She thinks she will get one for us. I want people to know I am not the fat one , though. She will also get one for Mollie since she's getting a bit, uh, pudgy.
"Flabskirt" is a good word. Mum laughed when she read that. She calls the one Mollie has a 'dewlap'.
Well, Mum is yawning after her long drive so I think it's time to get her to bed. We are saying prayers for all the beans and fluffies who need it.
Good night and perky whiskers to all!

Glad to hear you don't have any more mice to worry about! I hope you and Toby can get past your differences and eat in peace together as well. Maybe he just thought you were trying to watch your figure, Tilly!

Real mice are so much more fun to play with than play ones. Oh, well, we take what we can get....

Yes, those treat balls can be fun. And it's not only for "big-boned" kitties. All kitties can enjoy it.
Flabskirt is pretty funny. So is dewlap.

hello, tilly! thanks for the comment in our bloggie. uncle eeker had that same christmas tinsel problem--Mommy says she'll haveta dictate that story for a blog sometime.

please let us know how the feliway works for mollie. we tried it when xing first came, but think she was just to distressed for it to work. we would like to be able to chase her and have her play back a little. it's so scary when she shrieks!

just give ol' toby a shove if he tries to horn in on your chow. mouse mcnasty useta just put a paw on top of uncle eeker's head, extend his arm, and hold him away until he finished eating!

ed sez he doesn't have either a flabskirt or dewlap. it's just "extra ed". but Daddy sez Ed has "dunlap disease"--his belly done lapped over his feet!

Oops, sorry Tower Hill Mob, we hope we didn't offend you with our goof over Arnold "Red" Auerbach - my mum says she's just an ignorant Brit who doesn't understand basketball OR baseball (baseball is just rounders with extra rules, right? She watched some on TV in Boston but it was boring because they kept not hitting the ball). My Uncle Sim who lives in Montana is a big basketball fan so he would never have made that mistake. He used to play for the England junior team although basketball is not a big sport here.
