My Bean

My Human Bean is very talented. She writes and she draws. She takes pictures and videos. She make very nice websites.

She is good to me too. She gives me many treats and pets. She knows all my itchy spots, like on the left site of head, under my chin. She gives the best skritches and I just LOVE when she strokes me from tip of ears down to tip of tail. She even strokes my belly and is always careful not to tickle me when she does.

Sometime she can be annoying, but I'm sure that I probably do things that annoy her and sometimes I do them just to annoy her, but we both do that to each other.

She buys me many toys and she buy me little tent and she play with me. She just buy me radio controlled mouse. Much fun! Maybe Wednesday we will try using the video camera as a computer cam and put me playing with radio mouse up on web.

She also work with Panthers and wildlifes and helps out animal rescue when she can.

What I want to say is...she is very good human bean to have.

There one thing she really good at though that sets her above all the other Beans in the world.

Fish


She Fish!!!!!!!

And of course, I get to have some of what she catch!

Fire Storm

So we get rain, finally, but we also get fire. Lightning strike woods and set off fire in Old Burnt Store Road in Cape Coral. This fire is closest of all the fires that come to my house. 2,000 acres burn, many dog, Cat, and human beans must evacuate.

Gene-bean concerned that fire come to my home, but my bean say no, must jump many canals yet including big canal by Family Marina on Del Prado before it can come here. She say canals will protect us.

There maybe rain tonight that will help put out fire, but they concerned rain will start another fire. I think humans call this irony.

I sorry I not be online. The "air" was broken in the house, and it was very hot. I been smoozing neighbor and hiding in his house and watching TV there, where it not so hot as in my house. We finally get it fixed yesterday. For whole two paws worth of days air was broken. So hard to get lazy humans to fix things these days.

Probably why so many unwanted kittens, because humans to lazy to fix Cats. I not make kittens, I am good Cat.

Cat Show

Most exciting thing! There is Cat show coming to Fort Myers on July 21 and 22nd, which is next month! Plantinum Coast Cat Fanciers (CFA) will host the show at the Lee County Civic Center. While I will not go to Cat show I will sent human slave, as they have many Cat related products there and she can buy me many new things.

She groan because she say that busy weekend for her already. She have baseball game at "ungodly" hour of 10 AM on Saturday. I do not know what ungodly about it. Early to rise Cat catches the early bird for breakfast and is ready for Catnap by 10 AM. So she will be done with baseball game by noon and can go to cat show which runs until 4 PM. This give her plenty of time to buy many things for good Cat.

She can also take camera and take pictures of lovely purrrsians and bengals and I can post these on my blog.

After that she can go watch Eli outfielder play which is not until 7, and then they have fireworks. So what problem?

I will not go to Cat show because I do not like to be in car and I would not make good show cat anyway. I very beautiful, but judge have to pick you up and I do not like being picked up. So I would probably hiss or bite at judge and this would not get me very good marks for sociablity. But I do not think I would like to be show cat anyway, because you need lots of grooming and maybe a bath (water - yuk!) and then you need to be in cage from 9 am to 4 pm except when judge take you out for judging. So this does not sound like something I would enjoy, you know? Best that human goes and buys me many nice things. That is best way for good Cat to enjoy Cat show.

Jump

I read on internet where Cats think vertically - up and down - and we do. I have many territories up high, both in my house and outside my house. I have territory on the ground, territory on roof, territory in the tree, and even territory that is mine in the storm drain under the ground. It is a good place to catch bugs and rodents.

when I inside, I like to jump to the top of the fridge, to my shelf - human call it breakfast bar - where my food is and to the shelf in the top of the closet where I like to sleep sometimes. I also sit on the telephone stand to look out the big window in the living room, although I don't need to do that. Sometimes I sit on the floor and look out or on the sectional and look out. It depends on how high up I want to be.

Anyway, article say that Cats can jump up to five times their height, but I think this is wrong. I am a foot high, when I stand on all four paws. If I stand on just my back paws, I am taller, but, generally, I am one foot tall. So five of me would make five feets. Well, I can jump much higher than five feets, as I can I can jump to the top of the fridge with one leap and that is taller than the human, that is like six feets straight up. And shelf in closet is even higher I think. Maybe not. But in any case. I can just six feets at least.

You can read this article here. Do not read the articles on Cat training and teaching Cat to Come when called. Silly humans always think they can teach us things.

Cats do not come when called. We take message and get back to you later.

The Pastor's Cat

This bit of e-mail keeps going around the internet. I check on Snopes, but it does not say if it true or not...

The e-mail says it's a true story told by someone named Dwight Nelson about the pastor of his church.

It seems the pastor had a kitten that climbed up a tree in his backyard and then was afraid to come down. The pastor coaxed, offered warm milk, etc. (Did he try can of tuna fish?)

The kitten would not come down. The tree was not sturdy enough to climb, so the pastor decided that if he tied a rope to his car and pulled it until the tree bent down, he could then reach up and get the kitten.

That's what he did, all the while checking his progress in the car. He then figured if he went just a little bit further, the tree would be bent sufficiently for him to reach the kitten. But as he moved the car a little further forward, the rope broke.

The tree went "boing!" and the kitten instantly sailed through the air - out of sight.

The pastor felt terrible. He walked all over the neighborhood asking people if they'd seen a little kitten. No. Nobody had seen a stray kitten. So he prayed, "Lord, I just commit this kitten to your keeping," and went on about his business.

A few days later he was at the grocery store, and met one of his church members. He happened to look into her shopping cart and was amazed to see cat food. This woman was a cat hater and everyone knew it, so he asked her, "Why are you buying cat food when you hate cats so much?"

She replied, "You won't believe this," and then told him how her little girl had been begging her for a cat, but she kept refusing. Then a few days before, the child had begged again, so the Mom finally told her little girl, "Well, if God gives you a cat, I'll let you keep it. "She told the pastor, "I watched my child go out in the yard, get on her knees, and ask God for a cat. And really, Pastor, you won't believe this, but I saw it with my own eyes. A kitten suddenly came flying out of the blue sky, with its paws outspread, and landed right in front of her."

I think this story someone made up, but it is kind of cute. I feel sorry for flying kitten though!

Update on June 13th: I looking at Snopes again and find this bit on catapulting cat. I think this where this story come from.

Invasion of the LOL Cats

In UR Search Box Stealing UR Buzz

By Gordon Hurd

Buzzword

If you haven't heard of the LOLcats,it's only a matter of time. Also known as meme cats, kittahs orkittehs, and cat macros, these fuzzy fumblers are the latest in nine-lives worth of unstoppable Internet memes to hit message boards, blogs, and Search.

Somewhere, someone with way too much time on his or her hands posted funny pictures of cats doing funny feline things. Napping on a laptop. Interacting with the invisible world. Asking for a cheeseburger. The humor just purrs thanks to messages in a unique kitty pidgin of chat-speak, particularly the phrase, "I'm in UR." Thus the LOLcats were born and they've scratched their way into the Buzz.

Is this just the beginning of the LOL cats? Will kittehs go mainstream? Perhaps this silly trend will run out of lives to stand on. Or more likely they'll spread to the awesome repository of ridiculous celebrity images available online. Can LOLohans and Britnehs be that far away?

Mug

My Bean has been using Yahoo! Photos for her baseball pictures, but now she find out that Yahoo! Photos is shutting down to focus on Flickr, which is kind of like PhotoBucket, which I use. So she need to find new photo service. She is trying Kodak Gallery now and like it a lot. She put my pictures up on Kodak Gallery and she order coffee mug with Meow on it. Now she can think of me while she at work and having her coffee in the morning! She also get Mini photo book so she can take my pictures and show to her friends and stickers with Meow on them so that I can be on her letters and packages. I going to be EVERYWHERE now!

But Friendship is priceless!

Mini-leopard cat comes with $22,000 price tag

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - An exotic cat with the looks of a mini-leopard and a whopping $22,000 (11,000 pound) price tag has joined a crowded designer pet market that also features hypoallergenic kittens.

The Ashera is the result of blending the African Serval and the Asian Leopard Cat with a domestic cat, creating what Los Angeles-based Lifestyle Pets described this week as "the world's largest, rarest and most exotic domestic cat."


With tiger stripes and leopard-like spots, Ashera is pictured on the company's Web site wearing a diamond studded collar.

It grows up to 30 pounds and sports fearsome teeth but the company says it gets along with other pets and children and takes well to being walked on a leash.

The Ashera will be limited to less than 100 per year. The company says it has already sold two -- one to a family in Beverly Hills and another to a Russian client in Moscow.

Last year a San Diego-based company said it had created a hypoallergenic kitten for people who sneeze and wheeze in the presence of cats. The Allerca cat cost $3,950.

For that kind of money, cat should come with diamond studded collar! It okay, but I think I much more beautiful. See Ashera here....

Rainout-ville

So there very nasty weather in area, lots of wind and rain due to Tropical Storm Barry and so Scout night get moved to August 4th. This also date for Great All Nighter, so perhaps I will do sleep out again and get badge and pin at same time.

Sleep out kind of fun, as I can visit all the tents and see what everyone doing. Not much sleep goes on though. Scouts like me to visit tent because they afraid of spiders and mice and know I will protect them. Obviously, they miss part about scouts being couragous if mice and spiders scare them.

What I don't understand is...if human clever enough to make rain in house when they want it to wash in, and can make hot house cool and cold house warm, how come they can't fix the weather outside the house? Probably too much work, humans pretty lazy.

Anyway, Bean know I will be disappointed to not see my troup on Scout Night, so she bring me toys back to play with. The badger one that hangs on the door is kind of fun. The Mystic Cat one is kind of meh. Maybe she put honeysuckle spray on it, I will like better.

I more happy her baseball game cancelled today so she will spend all day with me instead of running off to chase baseball males.

After she go to bed, I find mouse in house and catch and eat. I leave her head and tail.

"You could have finished it," she says.

Head not really juicy and if I not leave trophy part, how she know I doing my job?

As for Tropical Storm, Barry has been downgraded to Tropical Depression. Very boring. I think I take catnap now until lunch time.

Animal Magnatism

Bean get pictures reprinted of meow. She is making fridge magnets for her family.

First she make fridge magnet for Mrs. Cheo. Then she make fridge magnet for us. But she put Eli Outfielder on our fridge magnet. She say I hang out on fridge enough that I do not have to hang on fridge as well.

Now she is making fridge magnets with meow on them for her mother and her sister who live in Ohio.

I think she should make many, many fridge magnets with my picture on them and sell them on line. Then I will be on fridges all over the country and everyone will know meow and I will be celebri-cat.

She says it take too much time and she not want to do this, but I think it very good idea. I think it would be very successful because I such a good subject for fridge magnets, having such a magnetic purrrsonality.

It rain today, so I hide inside. Maybe I help make fridge magnets.

I hope it not rain tonight so I can go to Scout Night.
