Mom Forgot My 100th Post! Plus a Post In Remembrance of Rain While the Humans Are Out

I should be mad at my mom!!! This is my 101st post! My last post was the 100th! How could she forget? Aren't I the most important one in this house? She says she may have had other things on her mind.... like taking a road trip! The humans are actually leaving us for two days! Mom said they would be back by Friday sometime. When she comes back I may hide from her for a couple of days just to show her!
In Remembrance of Rain: Here is what Spooky dictated .... Yuck ... those silly humans and that big yeller dog .... I don't know why they all miss the rain! Anyhow, it hasn't rained here for a couple of months.
Monty and my mom and even human sister Sarah, all love the rain! Hey look! a puddle there!
Hail on the back deck!
They say their walks in the woods are always fresher and more invigorating in the rain! My mom is dressed in a bazillion layers! She is always cold in the winter!
But, for now, they knows the rain is done... fini... kaput... no more! They remember it fondly during these months of drought! Unless, they get lucky, and they get the rare summer sprinkle!

And looky here!!! A 1 second video of Monty on a rainy day, there is my mom, still cold! Battery stopped working!
video

PS: Human sister says thank you to all those well wishers. She has a whole 3 weeks before the surgery... but we will let all know how it all goes.

Me and My Monty, My Sometimes Goofy Brother

See my handsome brother? Now remember that handsome face......
Here I am!
I agreed to do this with My Monty Dog.... using Picnik.
Monty here was complaining, cause he didn't get in on the action! ... Neon action that is. We did that back in April. This application is free and you don't have to pay for it!
So here is the good dog in Neon Orange!
Another photo!
Now Neon Blue! I thinks he looks sort of goofy, or certainly, neon shows his true goofy self! We will always love you Monty Pooh!! Remember that love out there in bloggy land! Ciao! Mom says LIS Forever!

SOME NEWS: My human sister, Sarah, has torn her ACL. Last week, she had her MRI then saw the Orthopedic Doctor. She is now scheduled for surgery Aug. 21. It will be outpatient surgery. She is now having physical therapy.

Fashion Friends Friday! And My ... Grrrrr ... Photos

Look what Zoolatry did! I and other kitties and doggys are part of Fashion and Friends Friday! When I visited Zoey's Millinery Mercatile I chose a summer chapeau!
Now, A Grrrrr! Photo Shoot:
I give you my laser stare!! "TURN OFF THAT "FLASHY BOX!"
Grrrrr!!!!

My Kitty Grasses:

For Those Who Asked About My Kitty Grasses:
My Kitty grasses came from a seed packet from a hardware store. My mom brought the packet a year ago .... but they grow real good, and they grow fast! Renee's Garden website, unfortunately, says they ship only to the USA and Canada.... you can find them on Amazon too. I think that is not fair to the rest of the world!! Seeds are equal parts rye, oats, barley, and wheat.

The Container: Now we are embarrassed. My mom is just a cheapo! The container is just a half and half container. Her whole "smallish" garden was started in the same type of containers... then transplanted. It is just she has never transplanted these kitty grasses. She loves watching and growing things from seed and will go to great length to avoid buying live plants!

Getting Better, Some Photos, and an Award

Thanks to everyone for wishing mom and sister to be well. Sister has to go to the Hospital to have a MRI for her knee this afternoon. Mom will be driving her. Sister has a humongous splint for her knee/leg. When the splint was off the first few times and lying on her bed us cats all thought it was a big huge black monster!!! Mom's mouth feels better.... but she still can't chew on that side where the temporary crown is! She has Dentist appointment for next Tuesday to get the permanent crown put in.
Just a few favorite photos.... here is Princess Spooky.
The Humans and Monty....
Know that Sandusky is no pansy! But it is his turn to be amidst the flowers! Can you tell he is sitting next to a real vase of flowers? Those were some flowers from one of the kids at school, mom's job.
A recent picture of Sarah and that big yeller dog.... MY Monty! This was taken on a walk in Angwin, before Sarah hurt her knee!
I Got an AWARD!
This is from my friends at The Monkeys. It says Seu blog é um sonho Award. In English it means 'Your blog is a dream.' Thank you for thinking of me Samson and Delilah!

The rules of this award are to give seven beauty secrets and then pass it on to seven bloggers.

I apologize for bending the rules here... Ours will include some secrets for the boys to be handsome. Plus one for the doggies. All 4 of us will give some. Here are some of our beauty / handsome secrets.

1. Sandusky.... Chase the pretty girls at least once a day. This is especially important if you have been neutered like I have been!

2. Spooky.... Sleep in the dark cupboard so the light doesn't fade your furs!

3. Cheyenne.... Always dream pleasant dreams!

4. Monty.... Get your humans to take you out in the car/van or vehicle of your choice for rides to where you can get out and pull your humans on a leash.

5. Sandusky.... Make sure you get to take a nap in some humans lap as often as possible!

6. Spooky.... Make sure you let your favorite human know how much you love her/him by sleeping on their pillow, then leaving your furs behind!

7. Cheyenne and Monty.... Make sure to always be standing at the back door so you get plenty of fresh air. Push out ahead of your mom if you can... to chase those intruder squirrels. If your not allowed out dream of being outside!

I want to give this to the following friends. Those who are boy kitties feel free to tell us your secrets for staying a handsome.... boy "beauty!" If you have time for this that would be great!

Lots to Tell and Videos!

Poor Sick Humans:
Both mom and human sister haven't been ok. Sister hurt her knee (for the 4th time in 2 months) This time she has crutches and is hobbling around on them! She can't hardly walk! Then mom has to have a crown put in. She went to the dentist yesterday and they drilled and drilled and drilled, then put in a temporary. She was in pain all last night, besides being really out of it! They gave her a Valium. That was to take before the appointment! That was because she suffers from TMJ. Grandma had to drive her home from the dentist! She had to go in today because the temporary was cutting into her tongue real bad. She is better now, but her mouth is still sore!!!

HEY AN AWARD!
I want you to know! I got another award!!! It is from my friends at The Monkeys. I will tell you more about the award on my next post. Thank you Samson and Delilah!

NOW!
I present the following Monty Movies for you enjoyment. They are short and silent, and show the true heart of MY Monty, my brother.

Monty says: "You must play ball with me mom! YOU DO IT THIS WAY!"

"Come on! Get with it mom!!!"

"Maybe I can get this cat to play!"

Six Photo Game plus Monty and Dog Next Door

First... Me, practicing my ignoring my mom pose!


Then I want you all to know my friend Kareltje, from KARELTJE en ikke!!! He tagged me to play the 6th photo game!

The rules are:
Open your photos folder and select the 6th folder.
Then select the 6th photo in that folder and post that photo
along with the story behind the photo on your blog.
Then tag 5 friends.

Opening my 6th folder this is what I found as the 6th photo. This was taken last spring (2008). It is a photo of my human sister Sarah. The humans had all got in the car and gone over to the ocean with Monty. They drove to Goat Rock, near Jenner. It was on a rainy day. To explain this photo better it is best to show the 2 photos that come before and after it.
We are doing this backward since we didn't think right when we downloaded the photos to blogger! The photo below was taken after it. Human sister is walking my Monty Dog in the rain!
This was the photo before it, before Monty Dog got his furs wet in the rain! He is with Grandma in the backseat! He is a very happy dog!
I want to tag the following friends:
A Kitty Named Reese
The Creek Cats
House of Cats
Huffle Mawson

MONTY DOG AND HIS FRIEND
Now.... looky here.... Monty is listening for his neighbor friend.
There is this little tiny, weency, doggy that lives next door! Monty likes to visit it through the fence. He often will go over to the fence and stand there listening to it!
But that is only when he isn't busy! Monty loves his toys! Not even the dog next door will distract him from this tennis ball when he is playing with it!
video
My human sister, Sarah, took the video with her cell phone... It isn't the greatest ... but it does have sound! You can hear my human sister talking to Monty ... then she is giggling... could be that she is torturing the doggy next door!! For all I know she may be torturing Monty too!
