Freaky Friday


Mom said Madi guess what this is...so I closed by eyes
but I had no clue
 When I gave it a sniff, I knew it was...
 gonna be T R O U B L E....
 and I was right...
 Mom kept putting this bow all over me until I
no longer cared let her put it on my head in hopes
that she would be OVER IT!
Sometimes being an only cat has its rewards and
DRAWBACKS!!!
Mom has been bugging me for a few
days off!! After this riveting ribbon caper, 
I decided either she goes or I go!!
I will be back on Monday 5/18, and hopefully
I won't be wearing a curly hot pink bow!!
Always,
Hugs Madi

Thursday Tale: Mother's Day Part II


 The mailing box was too small for my bodacious body; however,
it did have a lovely flowery box with a purrfectly tied
lime green to match my eyes bow


The box was filled to the brim with delicious chocolate chip,
oatmeal raisin and dark chocolate with macadamia nut cookies.
However, there was not

one single catnip filled cookie for me......
I was one sad sack dejected kitty....
Sis next time please ask Carolina Cookie Company to put
at least 1 catnip cookie in that box for ME!!

Sis Mom was all kinds of happy over this pressie and
she said to tell you are the best daughter.
(I think she meant the best daughter w/o furs!!!)
And to quote sissy's favorite character from 
Big Bang Theory!!!

For GOOSE everybuddy's FRIEND

Dear Friends...Our handsome, precious Goose made his trip to the Rainbow Bridge yesterday afternoon.  

Goose was an institution here in BLOGVILLE.  To say he will be missed is an understatement.  

Goose was Chaplain of Blogville. For those of you who did not know Goose, below is the Meet My Cabinet interview we had with Goose (Michelle) on April 8, 2013. 

Being Goose's friend was an honor. 

Goose every time we see a stick we will think of you and smile

Goose always ended a comment or a post with....

Blessings,
Goose

Meet My Cabinet: Goose


Today we are featuring 
Chaplain Goose from Gospel of Goose

1. Please introduce yourself(selves), tell us your age and a very special trait. 
They call me Goose and I am 13 years old.  My special treat...hummm I guess MOM's homemade salmon jerky.  Huh?  Oh trait.  I guess my special trait is that I can figure things out pretty quickly.  You know how to open a gate, figure out those dog puzzles in seconds, and how to catch fish.


2. If you had and alter ego, who would you like to be and why
I like being me.  Oh sure I admire Bert and his ability to do search and rescue, but really what would this world be with two Bert's and no Goose. 

3. What do you like best/least about where you live
The best part about where I live is that my MOM lives here and we have the most beautiful mountains to explore.  Least, well it's not worth mentioning.

4. Who are some peeps/furiends you'd like to meet and why
Oooo there are a few.  But the first that came to my mind is Lilly and Buddy.  They live in Georgia and we are friends and our mom's are friends but we have never met in the furs and I would really like too.  

5. If you could give one piece of random advice what would it be?
That no matter who you are, what you look like, where you live, or where you come from, you are beautiful.  You were created beautiful and don't let anyone, ANYONE, tell you otherwise.  Also don't lick a toad.

6. What do you do for fun
What DON'T I do for fun.  Life is an adventure and is to be lived and enjoyed and shared.  So no matter what I do it is fun.  But my favorite thing is backpacking with my MOM and fishing.

7. What is the first thing you do each morning
Open my eyes, otherwise I would fall out of bed and hit my head.  Then I get a hug from MOM and then I pee., then I eat a strawberry or raspberry.

8. What is the first thing you notice about a new furiend
Their smile.  Or if the other end is facing me the wag of a tail.

9. Tell us how you came to live in your family and how you got your name.
That's a long story so I will try and give you the cliff notes.  MOM went into a pet place for rocks for her Gecko Lizards, a rescue group was there and I was with them.  She saw me, I saw her.  She took me for a walk because the rescue lady shoved my leash in MOM's hand.  She called a friend and said, "Do you think it is time?"  (Note that is ALL she said).  Her friend said, "Yes it is time you had another dog in your life."  She went back and said "OK I'll take him."  But then the rescue lady said I was $600.  Which MOM handed the leash back and said, "Oh I can't afford that."  The lady talked with MOM a while about her Heart Dog, Pete, who went to the rainbow Bridge and they talked about the rescue place and other stuff.  Then as MOM started to walk away the lady put my leash back in MOM's hand and said, "Here he is yours.  He belongs to you and I know you two will be very happy together.  There will be no fee."  MOM walked out of the pet place with me and forgot to buy the rocks for the lizards.  I came with the name Goose.  Actually my full name is Sir King Goose III.  But MOM soon found out that I liked to Goose her in the butt. So Goose was the perfect name. hahhaha

10. What is your absolute favorite food
Anything eatable.  But I guess absolute favorite is whatever MOM is cooking, except beets.  YUK!  OK I have to say I have never had a beet but whenever beets are mentioned my MOM says "YUK"

BONUS Question:  Goose we all know you are a stick aficionado...please tell us the very best place to find sticks and what qualities you look for when hunting for one?
STICKS!!!!! Oh I love them.  Big ones, small ones, fat, skinny, with or without bark, dry or wet, brown or green, with or without leaves.  Really there is no such thing as a bad stick.  However!  I love love love sticks that are stuck in the water, or floating down a river.  The extra moister makes them all the better.  And the great thing about sticks is you can find them anywhere.  But you know the coolest place to find a stick.... a Beaver dam.  It's like hitting the mother lode.
Goose has never met a stick he doesn't like....and no stick is too large or too small.  Thanks Goose and Mom for pawticipating in Meet My Cabinet.
Gracious
Observant
Open minded
Sticks
Easy's Brother

Please drop by Gospel of Goose to leave some words of comfort for His Michelle!!

HAPPY HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO THE MOM'S OF ALL OUR 2 AND 4 LEGGED 
FRIENDS!!!

OH MY CATS do I have a tale for you!
Exactly 13 years ago on the Saturday before Mother's Day was the day my peeps adopted me.
 BELOW IS THE VERY FIRST PHOTO 
EVERY TAKEN OF ME..YOU CAN EVEN SEE THE DATE ON THE PHOTO.
MOM SAYS I'M THE MOTHER'S DAY
PRESSIE THAT KEEPS ON GIVING




TODAY I'M JOINING MY FRIENDS AT CAT SCOUTS.  We are writing a poem to our 
Moms telling them why we love them.

I WANTED TO SHARE THAT POEM WITH YOU too.

Why I love Mom....

Because she loves 
ME
Because she gets on the floor with 
ME
Because she brushes
ME
Because she buys GOOD FOOD for
ME
Because she is very observant of 
ME 
She knows when I'm not quite feeling like
ME
She takes me to the Vet lickety split even though
I sing the song of my people in first soprano
all the way there (1 mile) and she sings with 
ME
Most of all I love  mom 
because she is 
 the best blog assistant in the house!!
Mine
Only
Mine
Hugs and love
Madi your Best Feline Friend Furever
