Mancat and Midnight Monday tribute to Caesar

This is a photograph of our beloved Jetta, our beans' first kitty. We're sure he was at the Bridge with all the others to greet Caesar.

We send our condolences to all who knew and loved him.

Easy Like Sunday morning

Jetta used to love to take long naps. He was the most cerebral of cats, at least in the Castle. He could figger out anyfing. Mostly he loved to go out on safari and catch birds and squirrls.

This is me!

In the last post you saw a photograph of my son,
Herbie Love Bug. This is me! Do I look like a geezer kitty?
Who knows, I may enter another show in the future.

A Geezer cat? ME ????

Alexi says: WHAT ??? Just becuz I am a retired show cat does NOT mean I am a "GEEZER"
(whatefur that is???) SHUDDER !!!!! It is like being a retired beauty pageant queen! You can b very yong (althu I am middle aged for a cat) and retired from beauty paegents. It jus means Mombean and Blu Cat Man have other cats they want to take to cat shows like my bee-u-ti-ful son, Herbie Love Bug aka Bug. Here is his picture.

Fankful Furrsday!

Annie says: I am fankful that:
1) my beans loved me enough to look for me and told their friends that I was gone.

2) I am back in the Castle where it is warm and cozy with my furriends, my beans and their big cozy, warm bed upon which I love to sleep.

Alexi says: I am fankful that:
3) I don't have to go to cat shows anymore!

4) my beans allow me to play with the "puter" toy. I luv the CD drawer!

Meezer Rule Wednesday

Annie says: It's more fun to be inside than outside!

More awards!

Thanks to Miss Peach and Kavan who gave us the You make my Day award and the Thinking Blogger award! We are extremely flattered at this! We would like to pass these to Daisy The Curly Cat. We are great fans of her Mystery Mondays and her fashion sense and funny comics give us paws!

We are so happy to receive the following awards from Jan's Funny Farm. Our first! We at the Castle in turn would like to award them to the entire Cat Blogosphere for their concern during Annie's absence. As far as we're concerned you all are a part of our extended family. Hugs and purrs from us to you.

Annie's home!!!! YAY!

Annie's home!!!!! We are sooo happy! A little skinnier but fine! A report from Mombean:
I set out dry and moist for Annie's dinner around 5 PM as she had been coming around in the evenings for dinner. I then sat on the porch steps and waited..... and called her name ....... and waited........ and waited....................
FINALLY after about 30 minutes of waiting in the cold, Annie came around. I sat quietly sitting and watched her eat. S-L-O-W-L-Y I got closer to her and stretched out my hand to Annie. She came closer and let me stroke her head. Then I picked her up and brought her inside to the kitchen. She did not struggle when I got her. Now, Blu Cat Man is holding her and snuggling her as we all missed her sooo very much. THANK YOU all for your prayers and thoughts for her to come home!!

Another Annie sighting this evening!

Hi All,
Mombean has some more good news! She went out on the porch off the kitchen to check the laundry. She looked out the screen window and guess who was sitting there eating her dry food ?? Annie !! NO DOUBT about it. Mombean saw her, spoke her name, and opened the porch door.
She immediately ran away but we know she is not far away. Mombean put out more dry food and water for her. Now, if she will learn to trust us again so she will want to come in where it is warm! It will be getting colder here over the next few days.

Update--Annie sighting

Mombean and the Blu Cat Man have news to report about Annie. She was sighted this evening! They had been out and before going into the house, they called and heard Annie's typical greeting. They saw an outline of a cat on top of the trash roll cart who jumped down under the outside table. Mombean ran in and turned on the spotlights and the Blu Cat Man saw Annie with her collar. He made the mistake of approaching and she ran. They've put out her favorite salmon and dry food. We hope this might lure her back home.

We're still purring and purraying for Annie and Maobert to come home to their families. We are sure we speak for Maobert's family in that we cannot begin to express our amazement (though we shouldn't be surprised) at the outpouring of concern and compassion from the Cat Blogosphere kitties and beans. We at the Castle cannot express the comfort we have felt from your prayers and purrs nor our gratitude. You don't know what a blessing you are. We love Poppy Q's idea for a feline Amber Alert. We are hoping Annie will return and believe she will. We pray that Maobert will return to his family. We will keep you posted and love you all. Purrs and headbumpies from us and hugs from our beans.

Mao, please come home and escort Annie home, too

Our furriend, Mao, is missing. We hope he will find his way home and escort our Annie to the Castle. Mao, your furriends miss you!

Annie, please come home

Annie, who was shown on our last post for Meezer Rule Wednesday with some of her babies and friends, is missing from home today. We believe she escaped through the upper part of a window we thought closed. She is not an outside cat and Mombean has been looking for her all day. We purray that she is safe and will come home to the Castle soon. We did not see her escape but a careful search of the castle has turned up no trace of her. Tomorrow our beans will visit the animal shelter and some vets. All purrayers, purrs, and suggestions are deeply appreciated.

Meezer Rule Wednesday--milk bar's open!

Sometimes you want to go
Where everybody knows your name,
And they're always glad you came;
You want to be where you can see,
Our troubles are all the same;
You want to be where everybody knows your name.
