Meezer, Mancat, and Midnight Monday

Sumetimes I don't understand my sisfur, Dorydoo. Me and her are furry good furriends. We love to play chase and we love to rassle, and sometimes we sleep and snuggle togethur. But still, there are times when she gets crabby with me! She SQUEEKS, then she WHAPS me. Lookit this, just lookit:





Maybe she was lookin fur a good book to read and was annoyed that I gotted in her way. Ya think?

But Dorydoo nefur, efur, efur gets crabby with Brainball, our big bruther and the Alpha Cat of us Ballicai. She adores him. Here they are together. Does she look one bit crabby to you in this video? No! She loves both me and Brainball, but she only gets crabby with me. No fair.




Sisfurs. Who can figyure 'em.

Anyhows, my beeyootiful Sweetiepie Ariel gaved me the sweetest awardie today. Here's what she says about it:

"I was talking to mom recently about creating an award. Everyone knows someone who goes beyond. A person who always helps others, always has a kind word, a person with a heart of gold. So I told mom I wanted to make an award we could give to those we think deserve it."

I am so happy and honored that I'm spazzin all ofur the housie! Thankies so much, Sweetiepie. You have a heart of gold, and you're beeyootiful inside and out, and I'm proud to have you as my gurlkittyfurriend!



I'm gonna pass the awardie on to The Cat Realm, the Furry Kids, the Big Piney Woods Cats, Jeter Harris, Mike the Mysterious, and Stormie the Furry Fighter.


And guess what! The Meaouwy Troops taggied us Ballicai fur the Book Meme. Here's the rooles:

1. Pick up the nearest book.

2. Open to page 123

3. Find the fifth sentence.

4. Post the next three sentences.

5. Tag five people and post a comment to Mickey once you have posted it.

Hmmm, since alla us Ballicai are in diffrunt places right now and there's books all ofur the housie, any of 'em kould be a kandidate fur this meme. But since I'm the one who's postin, the book closest to me is this one:

The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin
. Hmmm. I've heard of that dood. He flewed a kite durin a thunderboomer with elecktricity and didn't get elecktrocuted. Wowie. He must be furry smart!

Here's those three sentences frum page 123:

"About the Year 1734, there arrived among us from Ireland, a young Presbyterian Preacher named Hemphill, who delivered with a good Voice, and apparently extempore, most excellent Discourses, which drew together considerable Numbers of different Persuasions, who join'd in admiring them. Among the rest I became one of his constant Hearers, his Sermons pleasing me, as they had little of the dogmatical kind, but inculcated strongly the Practice of Virtue, or what in the religious Stile are called Good Works. Those however, of our Congregation, who considered themselves as orthodox Presbyterians, disapprov'd his Doctrine, and were join'd by most of the old Clergy, who arraign'd him of Heterodoxy before the Synod, in order to have him silenc'd."

ACKETY ACK ACK ACK -- I don't have the froggiest idea what he's talkin about. But fur sure Benjamin Franklin sounds like a furry smart man bekause not only does he write great big long sentences with great big long wurdies, but he knows how to spell 'em all, too.

Fur the book meme, I'll do an open tag cuz I don't know who's played and who hasn't. If you wanna play, go fur it!

Oah, poor Mao!!!!
Let me give you a big hug!!!!
I think Dorydoo just want to concerntrate on thinking,
just seeing handsome you makes her forget that important thought,
she might too shy to say she forget so she just whapp, but I am sure she is not pupose!!!!

Karen Jo said...

Dorydoo whapped you good, MaoMao. Maybe she didn't want to share her bookcase place. She does like to cuddle with Brainball, though. Congratulations on your award. I think all you Ballicai have hearts of gold. I have read Benjamin Franklin's autobiography and it is a very interesting book.

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Both of those videos are very cute. Siblings, even when they are best friends, occasionally whap each other.

Congratulations on your award!

Purrs, Shade

Mao, of course she doesn't whap Brainball, how could she? Look at him! Hee Hee!

Sunny's Mommy said...

For some reason, Dorydoo appears to have more respect for Brainball. Maybe you should be a bit more aggressive with her? She seems to think she can boss you around.

Congratulations on your wonderful award!

PS: I don't understand the part quoted from that book either.

Tybalt said...

You're right, Mao! That Franklin guy does sound very smart. Congratulations on your award . . . and I'm surprised at Dorydoo!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Yeah sisfurs is hard to figger out. I was all snuggled on da bed next to Zippy for a couple hours and all of a sudden she jumped up, whapped me on da butt and ran off...Mom sed maybe I started snoring, but dat's no excuse for whapping my butt.~Speedy

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

I think Dorydoo was just playing with you - she didn't whap you hard - if she was mad she would have really whapped you.

The Furry Kids said...

Congratulations on your award!

I don't understand sisters either. Tazo whaps me and screams and gets me in trouble, but then she'll rub and purr all over Titus. Girls

PS - Whiskie kissies to Dorydoo!

Monty Q. Kat said...

Sorry about gettin' whapped Mao. But to tell the truth, sometimes chicks get grumpy. I don't know why. If you wanna hang here with me and KidBean I promise there won't be any whapping.

JB's Big World said...

Congrats on your award. I still have to do the book meme.....my mom better help me soon!

The Crew said...

Mao, I have the same problem with my sister, Tipper. Sometimes she's nice to me and cleans my ears and other times she jumps on me and bites!

Moki said...

Chairman Mao, you showed great catmanship by not swating back at Dorydoo. While it wasn't very nice of Dorydoo to swat at you, the fact that you refuse to swat back speaks louder than words.

Dr Tweety of da Fab Five said...

OMG! Da Dorydoo waz really whappin' you Mao! She musta wanted to readz da Edna St Vincent Mee-lay. I tink you gots in her way! But looks at da way she justee kisseez up to da Brainball! Well...dat iz da way of da Alpha cat. Mebbe we will comez back in our 9th livez az Alpha cats.
Congratyounationz on yer awardee! Dat nice Ariel iz a real sweetheart fur sure.
Love,
Dr Tweety

Forty Paws said...

That was nice of you to not swat Dorydoo back. Here, there are always spitting and hissing fights if somebody whaps somebody else. Oy!

Concatulations on your award!

That book sounds heavy duty.

congrats on your great award! you certainly deserve it!

HRH Yao-Lin said...

well thats just inverse favouritism. I can't believe your sister snuggles with brainball but swipes at you! What on earth is she thinking? Mao Mao, it's time for revenge. Seriously. x

Tesla said...

sisfurs. I had one of dem. She's at mommeh's werk right now getting her hoo-hee-ectomy.

Quasi said...

Hmm, could it be that Dorydoo wants to be the Beta? Just tell her that it's not going to happen.

Eric and Flynn said...
