Meezer Rule Wednesday

It's a good idea to have a good noncommittal expression on one's face in case of a sudden use of the flashy box...or try to ignore it like my friend behind me.

Orange Boy was bitten by a rattle snake while Storm's lymphoma has returned. Please purr and pray for our friends!

1) Write your own six word memoir.

2) Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.

3) Link to the person that tagged you in your post, and to the original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.

My six word memoir is:

Hi All blogging kitties and their beans. We have a chat room with our Castle website. You can link to it from here at Alexi's bloggie. Look for the link on the right side bar - Our Home... the Castle. Once there, you will need to click on the "Chat Room" link on the left side bar. You will need a Bell South acct. as it will ask for your home page log- in. So if you use Bellsouth, come on over and try the chat room. I tried it this morning and this is how I found about the log-in as Blu Cat Man and I share one account.  We hope see to you all at  Alexi's bloggie or at the Castle.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Today is my purrfday! I'm taking it easy, however, I do want to invite efurrycat to drop by the Castle for a purrfday drop-in. We will have refreshments, and hope to have good news about Mu Shue, Lilly Lu, and Iris. Of course, we will want to pawse to remember Miral who fought courageously to conquer her illness. If you want to come, please do. In the mean time enjoy these!
---Here I am, four months old!

Below is me taken last month, 5 years and 11 months old!

In Memoriam Miral

And God asked the feline spirit
Are you ready to come home?
Oh, yes, quite so, replied the precious soul
And, as a cat, you know I am most able
To decide anything for myself.

Are you coming then? asked God.
Soon, replied the whiskered angel
But I must come slowly
For my human friends are troubled
For you see, they need me, quite certainly.

But don't they understand? asked God
That you'll never leave them?
That your souls are intertwined. For all eternity?
That nothing is created or destroyed?
It just is....forever and ever and ever.

Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.

Author Unknown

We remember Ruis, Karl, and Miral's staff during this difficult time. We know she will be at the Bridge to greet us.

Purrin' hard for our buddies

Mom Laura's apartment was completely destroyed in a fire Friday 4/11/08. She lost everything and is currently homeless. We purr and pray for Lilly Lu, Mu Shue & Iris, Mom Laura and her twins during his horrible time. Go to their bloggie, or the Cat Blogosphere for updates.

We are purring and praying as hard as we can for you all.

Book meme

Today we read about the book meme:

No one tagged us but Blu Cat Man is a 'brarian so naturally I had to play:

1.Pick up the nearest book.
2.Open to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.

We picked up the book, Devotional Classics, edited by Richard J. Foster and James Bryan Smith.   It's a big, thick book and furry heavy.  Turning to the fifth sentence on page 123 we find,
His writing have had a great influence on the spirituality of the Eastern church.  He was well versed in Greek philosophy, notably Platonism and Stoicism, but the basis  of his thought was rooted in the Bible.  Gregory believed that the main use of the Bible was not for historical reflection but rather for growth in virtue.

Mombean loves these sorts of books that deal with what goes on at the steepel place.  We think Platonism, Stoicism, and Gregory would be super names for us cats.

We tag Daisy, Miss Peach, and Mickey.

Photo Hunters: Glass

Alexi says:
Good morning, efurrykitty.
At the Castle, we are purrrticipatin' in Photo Hunters dis week! Today, I want to talk 'bout glass-this week's theme.

Glass in the form of winders is gud. The pichure is of one of our kittens looking out der window. With winders, we can look at things owtside and not haf to worry wif bugs. Course, some of us likes bugs eat. Crunchy owtside, soft, chewy inside.

We likes to looks at birdies, squirrls, other kitties and imagine what it is like to be owt in it. Our beans say we like to watch Bird TV. Dis is better den whut dey watsches. Glass is gud. I recommend glass to efurrycat.

Hope you enjoy my musins' and yur Caturday.
