Ollie wants to be the baby still

There's nothing like a drop-in visit from your brother to start the day right!! Seriously, if mommy didn't stop this when she did (after she laughed on the inside and took a couple of quick shots with the flashy box) Ollie would have climbed right in there with Sophia.

Playing Catch Up

We have SOOOOO much catching up to do! Mommy and Daddy just returned from a long weekend vacation with our blurpy sister. They went to stay at a B&B called At Melissa's in Rehoboth, DE. They said it was wonderful and anyone looking for a fantastic relaxing place to stay a block and a half from the beach should stay there. Unfortunately, while it was "kid friendly" it apparently was not "cat friendly" enough for them to take us along. We didn't even know they were going and so we have not been able to get on the computer and finish looking at everyone's entries for Karl's I Dare You All #4, Part 2. We will try to catch up on that this week!! If we didn't visit yours yet, sorry for not coming around to see all the entries sooner. Beans, they can really ruin our plans, can't they???

Happy and Sad

Guess that is life for you but we are so saddened to learn of sweet naner lovin Pixie going to the Rainbow Bridge. We've been, um, well, a bit behind since the weekend and mommy keeps saying the werk and having to make green papers are causing her to not share the computer but still... important things happen and we're out of the loop. Daisy, we are so very sorry for the loss of your sweet sister, Pixie. We're sending you and your mommy big hugs and all our love. Even though Pixie had a weak heart and has been so brave for so long, we know how hard this must be on you right now. We are very very sad.

We were happy (until we learned about Pixie) because Ariel gave us the I Love Your Blog awardie and we were so touched! Thank you Sweet Ariel!! You are too kind! We feel very very honored. We love so many bloggies out there and there are so many of you we would give this awardie too. (Many of you already have it anyway.)

Here are the rules for the I Love Your Bloggie Awardie:

1. The winner can put the logo on his/her blog
2. Link the person you received your award from
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs
4. Put links of those blogs on yours, and
5. Leave a message on the blogs that you've nominated

We would like to give this award to:
Kimo and Sabi
Adan and Lego
Jeter Harris
The Ballicai

and everyone in the Cat Blogosphere family really - we love you all!

Finally, we thought we'd end on a happy note to introduce two friends of ours. Now, they are woofies so don't be too nervous but they are very nice. The big one is Floyd and we've know him for a while. But, Floyd got a new little sister named Edie this weekend. Isn't she cute??? They are getting along great and love each other already. You will read more about both Floyd and Edie soon, we promise!

Dare to Care

Do you accept the dare? Karl of the Cat Realm dared us all to "Get Involved" and come up with a dare. Mommy, Daddy, Ollie, Sophie, and Mr. Chen all accepted Karl's challenge. And amazingly, Mr. Chen's dare won the contest!!

Mr. Chen dared you all to come up with one creative, fun, useful way to save the environment and put a picture of yourself doing it on your blog!

So, here is Mr. Chen doing his own dare!! Now, we DARE YOU!

I, Mr. Chen, always use reusable cloth sacks when getting my groceries. Don't use the plastic baggies or even the brown paper bags. They BOTH use up resources that are bad for the environment. Instead, buy a sack at your local farmers market or natural foods store or anywhere really. Use that sack when doing your shopping or just for carrying stuff around.

See what's in my groceries?? Don't forget the butter!

Shoot, I thought I bought two bags of delicious temptayshuns but I guess I only got one. Oh well!

Then, after you put your groceries away, you can play in your reusable sack!!

Mommy, Daddy, Ollie and our blurpy, Sophie, will also be posting their fun, creative ways to save the environment throughout the week, too. We look forward to seeing yours - if you DARE!!

For a list of other ways you can save the environment and halt the climate change crisis, check out The Inconvenient Truth Take Action page.

Thanks again Karl for a wonderful dare!!

I Dare You All, #4, Part 1

WOWIEEE KAZOWIEEE!!! Karl of The Cat Realm has informed me that I, Mr. Chen, have won the I Dare You All #4 contest with my dare entry. This is so wonderful... I'm so excited...I've never won anything before in my whole two and a half years of life (I will secretly admit to you that I was a little bit jealous of Ollie when he won the 2007 Full Monty contest but I tried really hard to not show it so I don't think anybody really noticed much). I am so happy and honored that my dare was the winner selected by the esteemed judges. Thank you, judges!! THANK YOU!!

And, here it is: my winning dare:

"Mr. Chen dares you all to come up with one creative, fun, useful way to save the environment and put a picture of yourself doing it on your blog!"

NOW I hope that everykitty, everywoofie, everybun, and everybean (since they're the ones that have messed up the environment so bad anyway) goes out and does this dare. It will be a lot of fun!

Ollie and I (and our beans) will post our photos soon and can't wait to see what everyone else comes up, too! Again, my sincere thanks to Karl for coming up with this dare and also to the judges for choosing my entry. I'm so honored!!!

Breeze Box Woes

Mommy and Daddy decided to have us try the new Breeze Box after reading about it on Millie's bloggie. It sounded really appealing to them and so one was ordered and set-up for us earlier this week. The instructions say to place it next to the old box and to put some (about 1-2 cups which is a lot given that they don't give you that many pellets to begin with) of the Breeze pellets in the old box and then to "stop maintaining" the old box. Well... this is not really working out for us. We tried the Breeze box (Ollie peed in it once) but keep going back to the old box. And, the old box got so bad that Ollie kept walking away from both of them. This is a little bit of an issue... One big green box with dumb pellets in it and one big messy box with sand. What's a kitty to do????

Wait a minute!!! Mommy just read Millie's bloggie entry again - we need more pellets!!! Off to the store she goes...
