Kasey Kahne wins again

Kasey Kahne won at Lowe's Motor Speedway! He is a driver for Nascar (in case you didn't know). He has won four races now and I think he will win lots more this year because his car is a rocket! I just wanted to send along a note. Bye!

Auntie Heather is how old?

It is a very special day for my aunt Heather and uncle Robert. First thing is today is Heather's birthday! Mom will not let me say how she is. Heather might not want everybody to know. Second thing is, today is also Heather and Robert's second wedding anniversary. I am not sure what a wedding is but congratulations anyway! I am purring so loud that I just know they can here me. Mom has a note for Heather so hold on a second.
Heather,
You have been both a blessing and a pain in the butt for me. I love you and want you to have everything that you want in the world. I want to wish you a happy birthday and a wonderful wedding annaversary. I know that a lot has changed in your life but the love from your little sister will always be here.
Amber

See how nice my Mom is. I just love holidays! Heather and Robert, have a great day today and every other day too!

Lazy days


I love to just lay around in the sun. I was running around this morning but now I just want to relax! Mom has been taking pictures of me today. I don't mind because I am pretty! No wait, I meant to say handsome. There isn't all that much going on around here. Mom brought in a bag from the pet store yesterday but she hasn't shown me what she got yet. I am going back to sleep now. See you later (insert big kitten yawn).

Jamesie is nuts

Jamesie has made himself a holiday, Cat Day. I like the idea but he is still crazy. We have been playing all morning and then Mom left her covers on the bed pulled down. I was right there waiting. I got under and started to get all warm and sleepy. This might just be a great idea after all. Jamesie rarely has ideas that I like but this one might just be the exception.
I wonder if we get some kind of treat on Cat Day. I am going to ask right now, have fun.

Inside

My brother, Jamesie, is outside today. That is what his post is all about on his blog. What is so great about outside? I lived outside and I DON'T want to go back out there. Mom would let me back in but it makes me ummm... scared! Jamesie picks on me about it but I don't care. He can go out all he wants while I stay inside and get all of Mom's attention to myself! So there.

I like to look outside and smell the air. I just don't want to BE outside. I like my house and my family thank you very much. I might get lost! Nope, inside is for me. Mom is going to watch a movie and I am going to join her. She will rub my back and scratch my tummy the whole time! I love the indoors!

Slow human

Mom is so slow! She took her time fixing my blog up. But she did a great job! I have a new counter and new linkies. She refreshed all of my pictures and posts too! I guess she didn't go to helpful slow. It just felt like it!
Anyway, guess what. I got a new toy! It is a scratcher with little feathers to chase!

I wasn't sure what is was at first.

So Mom put some NIP on it!

Then I knew I loved my toy. Mom is putting this horrible and embarrassing picture of me on next. Before you look, remember I was in a nip cloud!

Under Construction

Mom is going to stop posting for me, just for a few days! She is going to update everything and do some clean up work (what ever that is). It shouldn't take her long to finish though. Mom is also doing Jamesie's blog at the same time. Our aunt Heather gave us the new linkies for the blogs! She is a very sweet aunt. Well, I am going to go now. Talk to you in a few!

Grrrrrrr

Today is a very confusing day for my Mom. She was in a car accident one year ago today, and that makes her very sad. You see, she loved her car very much. But on the other paw, she is very happy to be alive. My Mom and Grandma went to get a paper from the post office, Kasey Kahne had won his first race and Mom was proud. They never made it to the post office. A big jerk ran into them and wrecked the car. Now don't worry Grandma is all healed up and Mom is trying to be. I don't want to sound preachy, but DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE! That is why all of this happened. Life is way to important to throw it away. Mom needs all of my cuddles right now so I am cutting it short. Below are some pictures, good and then the bad. I am her little purr machine! I might even try to sound like a car!

Kids are cool

I got to see the nephews today! They came to see us after shopping spree with my Mom and Grandma! I was very happy to see them. It had been a very long (not really) time since I had seen them. It is so cool to have kids around! They like the same kinds of things that I do. I hope that they will come and visit for longer next time. Off to bed, have fun tonight!

Mother's Day

I am so very happy to learn that all of the Moms out there have a special day so that they can celebrate being a Mom. It is a hard job but we make it worth while! Make sure you say thank you and send your love out to Mothers everywhere on May 14, 2006! Be as good as you can so that your Mom will understand how much you appreciate her! Here come some kitty kisses Mom! We love you!

Dryer means cool

I want to let everybody in a secret, if you want to find a warm place to sleep, look no farther than the clothes dryer. I started sleeping in front of it and I stay warm all night! Sometimes Mom forgets to close the door and I crawl up in there with the warm clothes. This isn't really all that safe. Your people might come along and close you up in there or (kitten gulp) turn it on while you are still in there! Maybe the dryer is a sleep on not in type thing. It is much safer outside of it than inside. I just can't stay away from the heat!

Explanation Needed

Mom wants to explain about the story she told us the other day. Some people had some questions and she wants to explain to everyone. So her you go Mom, explain away!

I have gotten comments along with many private emails asking me what my "story" is about and if it true. Unfortunately, yes, the story is true. I think that my story has touched some people and just confused others so I would like to explain.
We all say thing that show others how we truly feel about them. It is the most difficult with the ones I love the most. My main feeling of unhappiness came from my own realization that a relationship I believed was strong is not. Sometimes, it is hard to know when to let go of a relationship or when to fight to make it stronger. Other times that decision is made foyou. Whenen you feel like you should provide "proof" in the relationship, it is time to let go and accept the limitations that are there. Yes, this is very hard to do. You might find a small hope in your heart that you can nurse and see if it grows, but having that hope hurts me more than it helps. Twenty-six years of hope has gotten me an unfair judgment, and I just need itstop. Lettingting go does not mean you stop loving the person. It just means you understand that some relationships just aren't meant to grow or change. They are just there.
I don't want anyone to take any part of this post as advice. I am not the person to get advice from, obviously. I just wanted to help some people out there to understand what my story was about. Who says that having two separate parts of your life is wrong? Isn't it better to have the two halves than one whole that tears you apart? I am hoping that people may read this with their hearts rather than their minds. I pray that we all stop judging the people (and animals) in our lives and just allow the relationship to grow. Please remember that no one ever stays the same. Thank you Scooby!

I hope that this wpeoplelp peolpe to understand what the story was about and why she wrote it. I just like to heard her voice so I don't care what she says!

Bath

Who else out there in the world has a pushy older cat around? Man, I could not believe my eyes when I saw that Jamesie had been teaching me to bathe! I know how. I just like to have help! So what if I miss a spot every now and then. I'll get it eventually! Grrrrrr

I think I'll just lay here for a little while and think about what I can do to teach "the teacher" that I might be young but I am not dumb!

Happy Time

I just got a new toy! It is a string toy with feathers on the end! I can run around for hours playing with it! I love feathers. They fly and can run away from you all at the same time! I am so happy that my Mom loves me enough to buy me silly toys and then PLAY with me. I love my toy and my family too. Maybe she will buy me more if I am nice, what do you think? Well, here is a picture of my toy, before I opened it.

Story Time

Mom was telling me and my brother a story today. She was told her something this past weekend that really hurt her. So she told me the following story. I hope you all like it. Jamesie is posting the same story on his blog, but read it anyway!

Once there was a girl who liked to play games and imagine all kinds of interesting things. She was very happy doing this. As the girl grew up she changed. Instead of the outgoing child that she once was, lived an unhappy woman. The woman was unhappy because no matter what she did, people just couldn't see that she had changed. They still thought that she was playing games and telling lies. Eventually she changed again. She started to keep parts of her life hidden away from the people who didn't see how she had grown up. She tried very hard not to care, but it didn't always work. The parts of her life started to shift so that more and more was hidden and less was offered freely to the ones around her. No more did she give her heart away only to have it thrown right back. Her idea worked, for a while. Then gradually she started to want those around her to see how much she had changed, so she opened her heart again. The people that couldn't see her for what, and who, she had become suddenly saw her. She was a girl no more.

Jamesie thinks that mom knew this girl because she seemed sad while she told the story. I want her to know that no matter what, she can be seen. We are going to go and stare at her. That will reassure her and hopefully get my ears and belly rubbed. TTYL
