Did you know my brother was in this part of the pawolympics........geeze Gus you could have least ran and flapped them a little harder....did you see his competition....wowzer there are some great ear flappers out there.  Maybe those cats should have stood in the background and blew in the wind, now that would have made his ears flap.

Speaking of Gussie, well he has been getting in trouble lately.  A LOT.  Like 123 times an hour, wif our DAD for chasing after Henri and El.   This is how it works at our house, furst, Gus spots Henri and El, peeking through the opening in between the gate, which is just big enough for them to walk through, for at least another week or so.  Their bellies are getting rounder, so then they will have to CLIMB over the gate, and that will end up being a whole nother story.

So they are peeking, and Gus starts watching them with his trusty telescope.  Then they decide all is clear, and run into the TV room where DAD is cos they like him.  Gus and Maggie sprint across the floor, sliding on the hardwood leaving peel out burnt marks, like tires on the highway, all across the floor, then Henri and El run under the recliner and Gus and Mags bark at them until either Dad loses his temper, or the kittens make a break for it to the kitchen.  AND then the whole show starts all over again, except they are under a cabinet.

When Henri went to the vet last week, he had to get a shot and ointment for his eyes, and EL had to have ointment also.  They are looking real good now.  They have gained 3 oz.  We think they would have gained more if they did not sprint up and down the stairs, and all over the house.

Anyway Gus is always in trouble now.  Mom calls it his teenage years.  Maggie is his follower and sometimes jumps in on the kitten action and other times wises up and just watches.

Cotton is growing.  LOOOOONNNNNNGGGGGEEEEERRRRR.  She looks like a rope with legs.  She is feeling good and likes to run outside to visit with all the wild kittens, that have somehow found their way to our back porch to the "land of the kitten food".    Mom found a program that will spay and neurter them if mom can catch them and deliver them to their program, but the catch is they bring them BACK to you.  It is called feral cat catch and release program.  They also give them all their shots.  Mom was hoping they would find them homes, but I guess they already have an outside home.............................yeah that is a whole nother story also.

We are trying to get caught up on all your blogs ............trying.   Stella Rose


  1. Wow! Things are always so busy at your house! It's good of your family to take care of all those kitties.

  2. With the feral catch & release programs, it's actually better to have the neutered cats back. That keeps OTHER feral cat colonies from moving in. That's why it's a catch and release.

  3. Oh Gussy are you being a teen! BOL

  5. Cats need to be chased, Gussie shouldn't get in trouble for that. That is the cats purpose in life!
    Great ear flapping, it is a skill neither of us have:(

  6. Stella Rose we looooovvvved your ear flapping. It made mom smile. MOLMOLMOL I'd like to see a Pug trying to catch to quick as lightning kittehs
    Hugs madi your bfff

  7. Gussie,it is hard to to chase a kitty. They are asking for it. We support you but don't hurt them. That could really get you in trouble

  8. my dearest Gussie - I do believe if the kittens did not run across the floor you would have no need to run after them. so I declare it their fault not yours. And I think your ear flap is just wonderful - it looks just like you are listening for me

  9. Hi Stella
    So much happening at your house. We are just snoozing the day away. Sunshine is too old to chase. . . Molly too prissy. With Mommy working from home now, we think it is our duty to sit by her feet and snore while she makes the business run with emails and phone calls. UGH.
    Anyhoo.... I think Gus better slow down the kitten chasing because all too soon they will be as big as him. And word to the wise. . . kitties have long memories.
    Love Noodles

  10. Wow, it sounds like quite the rodeo at your house! Maybe Gussie needs to be a bit more covert in his operations!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  11. Gussie you did a great job in the ear flapping competition. We think it's the kitties fault that you are getting in trouble. Please try to resist the temptation because we wouldn't want anybody to get hurt.

  12. Great ear flapping, Gus - now leave the kitties alone and all will be peaceful at home. We are sorry we don't have a solution to that other kitty problem - just seems so unfair.

    Woos - Ciara and Lightning

  13. OMD & OMC there is something happening 24/7 just like you said. I am in trouble when I am awake. Those kitties sure are cute I would chase them too.

  14. Wow, your house sounds as crazy as ours!

  15. I am trying, just like you are!

    Your house sure does sound exciting. I can only imagine the commotion, and you said it repeats over and over again! Oh my - I hope it's at least funny to watch!

  16. You guys always have lots going on at your house. We would be chasing the kitties too, Gussie!

  17. Poor Gussie - I bet I'd be chasing those cats around my house, too!
