Amber celebrates her 18th birthday.

Oh Amber, I’m so happy you are joining me in  turning 18 tomorrow, Binky smiled.  So the big day was October 24th for your mom.  I’ll bet she really prepared for you and your littermates arrival.  Soft blankets and all sorts of pillows.  Of course, you wouldn’t remember.  So never mind.                                             

OK, Binky consider the matter closed.  I have many interests nowadays.  My first priority is to the books I love.  For many years I have been sharing my book reviews with everyone on Fridays.                                                                         

Last week I started sharing reviews from The Mewton-Clawson Library.  Do pop on by and read about my finds by clicking on Mewton-Clawson Library.

Well, blow me down north wind and stick an icicle in my butt!  If it isn’t Angel Kali and Angel Phoebe. hollered Binky.  We couldn’t miss wishing Amber a superfantastic birthday.  Everyone sends their brightest wishes for a fun day with lotsa food, sparkles Angel Kali.  Amber asks what the angels are up to these days.  Kali mol  and laughs.  Well, Phoebe and I are taking a course on cloud maintenance.  Really?  Binky giggles saying I thought clouds maintained themselves and were moveable.  Phoebe answered Binky by nodding a hearty yes clouds are moveable but someone has to steer the cloud or it’ll go crashing into whatever is close.  I never thought of that Angel Phoebe.                                                                 

  Maintaining a cloud is difficult cause all the pistons and spark plugs are invisible unless you have a special code.  Kali lost the first code showing Buddy how to fly the cloud….the dang code was sitting on the side of the cloud and fell off.  I was ticked but I can’t stay ticked long at Buddy and Kali.  Buddy is such a likeable happy guy and Kali is just so helpful and yes, fun to be around,  It sounds like everything is the same with the Cougars just a different address laughs Amber..

I am picking some fresh nip for Amber’s dessert….Baked Catnip…..yummy!!

We don’t need a bunch of food here Binky. It’s just the two of us and the angels don’t eat so let’s have sardines with a side of crab. For dessert we have the baked catnip Alaska

Baked sardines with lemon is just the cat’s mew.

Followed by fresh catnip baked Alaska

    I’m gettin’ down to business with this Nip Cocktail.                                                             

May the Bird of Paradise drop his treasures beside you this year, Amber and may any cracks in your day be smoothed away with furry paws.


Happy 18th Birthday, Allie

On April 29th Allie turned 18 and there was a huge party at her home with all sorts of goodies for the guests.  Her bro Raz performed a skit from Gone with The Wind…he even swore!  He said, “Frankly my dear, I don’t Give a Damn.”


Allie in her unforgettable role as Prissy in Gone with the Wind.

Allie’s official name is Nirmanakaya’s Zoralda so she’s got class and position but Allie is humble and a proud girl.  Allie’s more in this world for a cuddle and some lovin’.  Not that she’s easy….no way.  This gal has scruples and only goes after those that have that Stinky Goodness smell. mol  A dudette after my own heart.

This is Allie at her 1st birthday party. Looks like a grand haul.

Bet you thought this was a picture of Allie but no way. This is Allie’s twin sister Ellie. Ellie became an angel not long before Crotchety Cougars opened. Angel Ellie is one of us so we include her in our thoughts.One of the delicious plates at Allie’s party was Stinky Goodness, one of her favourite meals.                                                             
This dish went over big with all felines present. Good stuff!                                                                     
Allie is a great helper when mom’s at the computer. Allie directs her as the best possible move which is to pet her before starting anything else.

Pets from all over the world stopped by Allie’s to give this gorgeous girl the best wishes possible.  Also all the angels at the Bridge came for the festivities.  Of course, the Cougars remaining came a runnin’ to honour their pal.

The angel cougars are not visible to us here.  Occasionally the Cougars  get flashes but nothing solid.  How do they know the Angel Cougars are present?  Easy, we move items so they know..we angels were here.  For example the oregano plant growing on the table was moved into the sunlight.  This shows Angel Kali stopped by cause Angel Kali liked oregano better than catnip.                                                                         

Look there’s Binky and Amber…dudettes with images of Stinky Goodness in their eyes.What a great visit from across the pond.  Ladies Stinky Goodness is on the buffet table.                                                                     

Congrats on a stupendous achievement and here’s to several more birthdays…Cheers.

Goodbye Buddy Budd

It is with a heavy heart we announce the loss of our one and only security guard, Buddy Budd. He kept all the Crotchety Cougars safe when they were out on the town. He was also the beloved boyfriend of Angel Kali.

Binga Leaves for the Bridge

Binga joined the angel Cougars yesterday.  She was feeling very poorly as her time had come to join the others.  Her mom was with Binga when she departed for the bridge.                                                           
Binga’s sister Summer, a well-known therapy cat, is confused and missing her older sister.  Soon Summer will pick up Binga’s artful ways at lovin’ and carin’ but now is the time to remember our friend and smile at the memories she gave us.                                                                         

Sad News

We have some sad news. Another one of the Crotchety Cougars has left for The Rainbow Bridge. Sasha was 18 and a half years old and leaves behind her mom and a brother, Grady Lewis. sasha1a


Rest in Peace our beautiful friend. XOSasha

Amber’s Singing a Happy Song

Ladies..ladies!  Stop the exercise music and listen.                                                  Good news, Amber’s blood tests came back and she is doing well.  Her arthritis is getting bad so she now has pain meds like Angel Kali had for the really bad days.  Our purring worked.  We must keep the purring going to get her back to the vivacious lady she was but she’s here with us again.                                                              


Calling All Crotchety Cougars….We need to send Purrs


Binga:  Ladies!!  Ladies, turn the music down, Binky.  It’s way too loud. I have to yell to be heard.                                                           

BINKY:  C’mon swing that butt Ali.  Alright, keep the music down, Binga has an announcement to make.                                                 

Sarabi: What’s going on Binga, you look concerned?                                                  

Binga: I am concerned. Amber is just back from the vet’s and her kidneys are inflamed. This is not good. We must say purrayers for her.                                                                    

Allie: No, not Amber. She’ll beat it. We’ll just make sure and give our all for the best of Amber to shine through.

Sasha: Let’s form a circle and hold paws. Then we’ll bow our heads and say out purrs for Sister Amber.                                                           

Amber we love you and want you back dancing the Rumba with us as soon as possible.
