Candy & EK Have Arrived!

My new fursibs have arrived. Mom picked them up on Friday from Duncan’s Place.They are very little, and I guess they’re cute. But boy have they taken over! They’re constantly climbing on Mom and rubbing and purring on her, the little suck-ups. EK’s climbing all over her right now while she’s trying to type for me. They climb all over my cat tree and have usurped my little red tent. So far they haven’t gotten in my stroller, but I bet that’s just a matter of time. They haven’t slept in Mom’s bed yet, either, so that’s still all mine, too.

 EK (short for Evel Knievel. And he’s definitely evil.)

Candy. She’s ok. She’s quieter and doesn’t bug me as much.

So far they don’t seem very interested in toys, so my toys are still all mine! I did get Mom all to myself yesterday for #PPPawty so Mom could type and upload pictures for me. Mom’s also been trying to give me special treats just for me, but I didn’t eat them. Not sure which squirt wound up with my shrimps.

Speaking of toys, most of my favorite little toys have been missing for a long time. Mom looked all over for them. She even got a friend’s kid to help her look under the furniture. She even looked under the fridge. No luck. Well yesterday, we heard all this squeaking and EK wasn’t playing with my squeaky mouse on a stick toy. So Mom goes to see what he found and he was reaching under the little wine fridge. Mom moved it and there were all my toys! Over a dozen of them. I was so happy to see all my toys again. I guess squirts are good for something.

Anyway, Mom went crazy with the flashy box. There’s lots of pictures and even some video. I’m in some of the pictures, too. Because of the video, I did a link this time to the album. Click on the picture below to see more pictures. Enjoy!

New Kitties

So far we’ve sold 25 copies of ‘Summer at the Lake with Petie‘. I’m not sure how much money I’ve raised because the website keeps some and Paypal takes some, but its around $70 and probably more. Copies are starting to arrive at pals homes. @LilyLuWhoT has gotten her copy. Mine should arrive tomorrow. As you know, my goal is 100 copies sold. If anyone has ideas how to sell more books, please DM me. The kitties at Duncan’s Place and the humans caring for them really deserve the help. I did look into Amazon, but that would just make the books more expensive. I guess I need ideas how to publicize it better without being annoying about it.

Speaking of help, my wonderful friends, @whsker and @dashkitten, are not only getting a copy of Summer at the Lake with Petie, but they wrote about it in their blog: Dash Kitten’s Mewsings, I was so surprised!. I think that was such a nice thing for them to do. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised though. Dash and his human are always writing about others and are always looking for ways to help everyone. They are some of the most thoughtful pals out there in the Anipal Twitterverse and the Cat Blogoshpere.

The other excitement this last week was Petie and Pandy’s shower. The guys went hiking and the girls went shopping, and all kinds of interesting happened while we were out. Everyone had a wonderful time, and a few pals wound up in Twitter jail! That’s all I’m gonna tell you. What happens in Twitter stays in Twitter!

*purrs and pawhugs*

News!

All kinds of news this week. The first item is that the book about #lakewithpetie is finished and ready to order. It’s called Summer at the Lake with Petie and is available here: Summer at the Lake with Petie. You can see a preview at the right. I was thrilled at how many pals sent stuff for me to put in the book! There are poems, stories, pictures, memories, and even original artwork. We have some very talented anipals in our community. Not only is this a wonderful way to remember the amazing summer we had, but the proceeds are going to Duncan’s Place cat sanctuary. It will make a great Crispmouse present for your humans, so buy lots of copies!

Duncan’s Place cat sanctuary is also where my brofurs are coming from. Cathy at Duncan’s Place cat sanctuary sent me more pictures of them.

I finally have names for them. The cream colored one is gonna be Evel Kneivel and just EK for short. We’ve been told he’s a bit of a daredevil. The grey and white one is gonna be Bandit because he looks like he’s wearing a mask. Mom’s picking them up Friday night!

Edit: Just found out from Cathy at Duncan’s Place – turns out the grey & white one is a girl. So instead of 2 brofurs I’m gonna have a sisfur and a brofur. Cathy called her Babette and I think I’m just gonna call her that and not change her name again. Bad enough everyone thought she was a boy and called her Bob all these weeks. I’m not gonna change her name yet again.

So that’s the good news. Now the sad news. We lost our good friend, Gunner, this week. He crossed the bridge on Thursday. PepiSmartDog escorted him across the bridge and arranged a wonderful welcome banquet for him. The banquet was held at Nipclub so that all the anipals could see Gunner off and wish him a good crossing. It was a wonderful banquet for a wonderful pal.

That’s if for this week. Next week I’ll have lots of news after the brofurs get here. Wish me luck! Smoochies!

Brofurs!

Cathy at Duncan’s Place sent me pictures of the squirts that Mom’s forcing on me. I guess they’re kind of cute. I’ll give them a chance. Do I have a choice?

The butterscotch one is named Peanut and the grey and white is Bob. I don’t like those names, so I’m taking suggestions. Cathy said Peanut is a real daredevil and climbs everywhere already, so I’m thinking of calling him Evel Knievel, or EK for short. What do you guys think?
