Hello Cat Blogosphere...
We know it has been eons and eons since the lady let us post (please note, she has been downgraded from "mommy" to "the lady" for her bad ways) but we are taking matters into our own hands because our good buddy, Kimo of Cat Banter has gone missing!! Kimo was last seen yesterday around 2pm. His staff say that he must have just got out (ok, well maybe that a door might have been left open) and was tempted to just take a walkabout. But now it's been too long and eveyrone is very very worried. Can you please PLEASE say a little prayer for him that he is ok? We are purring and praying that he makes it home safely soon. We know his bruther Sabi and his sister Kiera are really missing him (not to mention the poor food lady and man).
Mr. Chen & Ollie
P.S. We have missed you all so much. Maybe this bold action on our part will force the issue with "the lady" and you will be hearing more from us now!

Mommy is very upset. We got an email today from our good friends at Zoolatry about this despicable idea being considered in Mommy's home state of New Jersey. The email was originally sent by Jen, Tuck's mom and here it is:
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SEND THIS EMAIL ON to others on your list who care about our feral cats, their wellbeing and their safety. Thank you.
I was hoping you could help me spread the word about a horrifying story I read in my local paper this morning. New Jersey officials are trying to ban TNR and instead, legalize the hunting of feral cats. I posted a link below to the story. If you could share this news with everyone on your mailing list I would really appreciate it. I'm asking everyone to write a letter or send an email to the NJ Fish & Game Council letting them know that we will not allow this to happen. I included the contact info for the council below.
N.J. Division of Fish and Wildlife
P.O. Box 400
Trenton, NJ 08625-0400
All us kitties (and our beans) need to voice our outrage at this news. Write, call, email today!
Mommy is very fond of our feral brethren. She has been feeding feral kitties that come into our backyard for over a year. She and our next-door neighbors have saved 3 of 4 feral kittens and placed them into loving forever homes. Here are photos of 2 of the 3 saved kitties getting cleaned up (well, actually it looks more like they are snuggling and snoozing) at the V-E-T before getting to go to their forever home together!

It has been almost two months (TWO MONTHS!!) since Mommy helped us get on the computer. We think she should be charged by the good blogging police with a major blogstop violation. All we get is the same old story from her though... blah blah blah, chasing a toddler keeps her busy, blah blah blah, carrying another blurpy in her belly makes her tired and weird, blah blah blah, trying to still do her consulting work is hard enough, blah blah blah, oh and this new venture of hers just launched but get this - it's a NEW blog about finding things to do with bean kids. Do you believe it? She shouldn't be starting new blogs until she can keep up with the ones she already is supposed to be helping with, don't you think??? Oh well... hard to talk sense into pregnant mombeans sometimes. Anyhoo... we thought we would take this moment to wish you all a very love-filled and Happy Meowentines Day coming up in case she doesn't help us blog again for another two months. JEESH!

Much love, Mr. Chen & Ollie

Ok, it's gone too far... Mommy has been feeding the feral kitties that live on our street. There are many of them and it started with putting food out in the backyard or the driveway. Then the food moved closer and closer until most recently there was a feral kitty every morning and every evening (and often in between) on our back deck looking for some foods. Then, Mommy had to stop feeding the kitties because well, frankly the yard started smelling like a big litterbox and she saw a flea on her leg one day while petting Ollie. Not being an outdoor cat, Ollie could have only had a flea hop on him from one of the ferals coming so close to the door to eat. She was sad about this but tried to stand firm for our safety and for the safety of our blurp. She was doing really well with not feeding them and even put the big bag of foods she bought especially for them in the shed so she wouldn't be tempted to slip them a little plate once and a while.
But then, yesterday, Mommy and the blurp were heading outside and stopped dead in their tracks to witness one of the ferals trying to get its brand-new kittens across the front lawn from the hostas to under the house. Well, they must have scared them because the momma and two babies took off but left behind one of the little babies who just wailed and wailed. Mommy was so nervous and put out milk and cat food (gotten from the shed) for the little left-behind kitten and hoped that maybe the food and milk would also make the mommy come back looking for it. Alas, hours later when she and the blurp returned the poor little kitten was still there. Sad and still and alone. Mommy got very nervous now because it had been several hours and it was very cold and the mommy clearly wasn't coming back for it. Thankfully, our Uncle Mike is an ER vet nurse and of course mommy called him for advice. After talking to Uncle Mike, mommy decided to get the kitten to a safe warm place out in the shed in a box with towels and then she fed him milk from an eyedropper. At first, he barely opened his mouth and she was thinking that he was in pretty bad shape but she managed to get a couple of drops in. Then, she went back to check on him and he lapped up about 3 droppers full of milk! Between mommy and our neighbor, Aunt Christine, that kitten got lots of love and milk for a few hours and it must have done him real good. Uncle Mike came by and picked him up and took him to the ER where they checked his fluids and checked him for diseases and he came back fine and all negative. The kitten can't eat or go to the bathroom by itself yet so it has a lot of learning to do but he's in good hands now and will surely be better off in many ways once he finds his forever home. Speaking of which we are a little annoyed but Mommy and Daddy said that since his tests for bad diseases came back negative, if the good nurses don't find him a forever home we might be taking him in here. Hrmph. Not sure we like the sounds of this but hopefully it won't come to pass...
