This morning Bob was sleeping in late, so I jumped onto the bed and napped next to him for a while. Then I heard Monika go into the kitchen and start making batter for pancakes so I woke him up so he would have time to give us our treats before his breakfast was ready. He snuggled me and said; "Thanks for waking me up Frost." Then he got dressed and we got our treats right before Monika told him his pancakes were ready.

Bob was giving me pets with one hand while we were reading the blogs and I was getting shocks form his fingers. He said; "Sorry Frostin." and stopped petting me, but I reached up and grabbed his rest to tell him I want more pets. He told Monika that I must like the shocks because I wont let him stop petting me.
December 27, 2010
They got back early yesterday evening and Bob checked our litters first thing, while Monika, checked our food and water and put things away.
This morning Monika did not go to work, she said she is on vacation this week. That is all well and fine, but she got up before Bob and went straight to her computer to play, so Bob couldn't help me with the blogs or job hunt. Now she is watching TV, so Bob said let's get on the computer while we have the chance.

This is Frostin's cousin Sweety;
I got to play chase again this morning. This time I snuck out when Aunt Monika was coming into the computer room. She chased me around for a few minutes, but then she cheated and got Uncle Bob to get up and come help her catch me.

Frostin's Cousin Petie here;
Uncle Bob and Aunt Monika are here again, but he didn't do the litters last night, so I didn't get any supervising in. He did come around and give all of us kitties that don't run and hide pets and cuddles though. So did Monika, she even found a couple of the hiders and gave them pets.

Hi it's Sweety again;
My human parents always have me sleep in the computer room because I don't get along well with all of the other kitties in the house. I don't usually mind this too much because some times Jackie or one other the othe others that I like will spend the night with me. However last night none of the other kitties was in here with me, so I snuck out while no one was looking. When Bob finished in the computer room he went across into the guest room and then came back out to go to the bathroom and brush his teeth. That is when he saw me on the floor by the breakfast bar. He asked me what I was doing out and came to pick me up and put me back in, but I ran off and lead him on a merry chase through the house. After about 15 minutes I finally let him catch me. He gave me bunches of pets and cuddles, then brought me back into the computer room and put me on the bed in there and pet me some more. When I laid down and relaxed he said; "Good night." then left the room to go to sleep himself.
December 18, 2010
Hi, I'm Frostin's cousin Petie;
I teleported over and asked Frostin and he said it was OK if I posted on his blog so here goes.
Aunt Monika and Uncle Bob are here visiting us, and last night Bob cleaned our litters for our Mom while she was talking to Monika. I never saw him do it before, so I followed him to every litter and supervised to make sure he did a good job. Then this morning he cleaned them again, but this time my sister Mindy decided she wanted to follow him around and supervise. He did a good job both times, so I guess it is OK for him to clean them when he is here.
Now here is my sister Sweety to tell you more about what Uncle Bob has been doing;
Last night Bob brought a keyboard into the computer room and started taking it apart. Then he washed all the keys and went and asked Mom for the rug sucking monster so he could vacuum up all the hair in it. Of course as soon as that came in I ran away, but I heard Mom ask him to clean her and Daddy's keyboards too before I left. I staid out of the room while he finished putting Aunt Monika's keyboard back together and while he cleaned Mom's. Then came in to watch him check Mom's and unplug Dads and put Monika's in place of it before they all decided to go play cards in the dining room. This afternoon after they played some more cards, Bob took Dad's keyboard apart and cleaned it, but the door was closed and I was inside when he vacuumed it so I hid under the bed. Later when he was done cleaning the keys and he started putting them back into the keyboard, I jumped onto the bed to supervise. After a few minutes of watching I decided to help him, so I started pulling one key at a time from the towel, and he took them from me and put them into the keyboard. After we were done he gave me pets and thanked me for helping him.

They are getting ready to go away again. Bob said they are visiting Monika's parents and our cousin cats and dog for Monika's birthday. Then they are going back again next week for Christmas. All I know is Monika better not complain when they come back and I have pulled all my hair out.

Bob is up early this morning. He has to go to the human vet. His belly is making growly sounds because the human vets said he cannot eat for 12 hours before coming. That hasn't kept King Obsidian from watching for his milk though. Bob told him maybe Monika will give him some when she wakes up.
December 13, 2010
King Obsidian here;
I am laying patiently on the floor in the computer room for my cereal milk. I even have my right paw stretched out to save a spot for Bob to put the bowl in when he is done. Now if I could just get him to eat his cereal, instead of just reading the cat blogs. I mean, I like the cat blogs too, and I am all for reading them, but a big man cat like me needs his milk too.

Princess Ashlyn here;
I tried eating my treats in the doorway to the computer room today, but I only ate a few pieces, then I got nervous and ran to hide. Later, when I came back out, Bob got me more treats and then carried me to my tree and gave them to me there. That is my secure spot.

Queen Munchkin here;
I was just in Bob's lap getting bunches of pets and cuddles, but he put me down in the chair next to the computer and said something about not being able to eat his cereal with my tail in his mouth. If I can't have the milk when he is done, why should I care if he can eat it?
December 06, 2010
Queen Munchkin here;
This morning I was sitting by Bob's feet getting ready to jump into his lap when his face exploded. It was so loud that I ran into the spare bedroom to hide. Then he said something about it was all right and that he just sneezed, but it sure sounded like an explosion to me.

I don't know if someone is hacking blogger accounts and messing with them, or if there is a new widget that is coded badly, but I am getting tired of having to close a blog 10 - 20 times before I can go onto the next blog on my list. I doubt that it is anything that any of us kitties is doing on purpose, but it is very annoying when I close a blog and it starts reopening itself over and over in seperate tabs.
December 01, 2010
Queen Munchkin here;
Bob is still being mean to me. I come in all sweet and rub against his feet to show him what a good girl I am, but when he finishes his cereal he still wont give me his milk. He always gives it to King Obsidian and even if I manage to talk him into leaving me some, which is most of the time, Bob picks it up and dumps it down the sink.
November 30, 2010
Princess Ashlyn here;
I like the new way that Princess Boots has taught Bob to give attentions. He lays down on the floor so that just his head and hands are close to me, then he rubs foreheads with me and gives me bunches of pets and cuddles without picking me up.
November 29, 2010
I saw something out the back window and I just had to get Bob to stop job hunting and come see!!!
There are little gray birdies out on the back patio and they are jumping around all over and picking at the wild flowers. They look like they are having a lot of fun, and I almost wish I could go out and play with them.
Poor Queen Munchkin. Every morning when Bob has his cereal, she waits patiently and politely for his cereal milk, but she can't have it because she is lactose intollerant. Bob gives the bowl to King Obsidian and lets him drink what he wants, but then when Queen Munchkin tries to finish it, he picks it up and dumps it down the sink. Every once in a while he tries to give some to me too, but I don't like milk, so I just walk away from it.

Bob and Monika got home at about 7 last night. Bob called his friend Rob to let him know they were home early, and Rob was on his way here when he answered, so he stopped in to give Bob back the keys and to say; "Hello."
This morning after Bob gave us our treats, we went back to mostly being upset with them for leaving, but we are all pretty much over it now.
November 25, 2010
November 24, 2010
They are getting ready to leave us again. Last night they pulled out their suit case and started putting stuff in it and I heard Bob talking to his friend Rob asking him to come and check on us while they are gone.
On the plus side, Monika has made both turkey and ham recently and ws have been getting some for special treats when ever they have some for lunch or dinner.

My lovely friend Aoise had to go to the bridge yesterday.
I always used to teleport over to keep her company when ever her miewmie went on a trip, and we would chase mousies and play thundering herd of elephants together.
Have fun on the other side Aoise and watch over your miewmie. I'm going to miss you.

Monika opened the window on the front door this morning, and after I got my treats, I decided to lay there and enjoy the fresh air. Bob came up and saw me enjoying the air, so he picked me up and brought me outside so I could look around. Only I got real scared and he had to get Monika to come open the door so he could bring me back in. I may still like looking at outside, but I don't like being there any more.

Monika is convinced that the tower Bob built his computer in is possessed by a computer killing demon. First the power supply and the HD died with no storm or power surge. Next the mother board and CPU went which is admittedly probably connected to the power supply dying. Then he put in another power supply and CPU and now the computer wont stay on. Bob's friend Rob did some testing and found out that the CPU is overheating, so they switched its fan, but it is still turning off. Now Bob says it is time to find another CPU. At this rate they might get it working by Christmas.

Yesterday, when I went to take my first nap of the day, I wanted to lay on Monika's night shirt, but she had crumbled it up when she put it on the bed instead of laying it flat for me. I went into the computer room to ask Bob to fix it, but I got his attention the same way I get it when I want him to come nap, so he just pet me and said; "Daddy will come take a nap later Frost." So I grabbed his wrist again, and then made my best pouty face and the jumped down and went to the door and looked pouty some more. Bob saw me pouting and said; "What's wrong Buddy?" So I ran to the bedroom and he followed me. Then when I jumped onto the bed, he saw Monika's shirt and laid it out flat for me. I immediately moved into the center of it and started doing biscuits and he gave me pets and said; "There you go Frostin. Now you can take your nap."
November 17, 2010
Yesterday I was so tired when I went to take my nap that I forgot to get Bob to come take one too. After a while he noticed I was gone, and when he found me napping, he laid down and took one with me any ways though. Now if I could just teach Monika to take naps on the bed instead of the recliner when she is off. Then I would be able to nap with both of them.

Bob has been watching a British mini-series called Luther, and I have been watching it with him. We don't watch it late on Sunday though, we watch it during the week. Bob says the only thing he don't like about it is that the stories are written like Columbo. They show you who the bad guy is and you just watch Luther figuring it out. He said he wishes they wrote it like the old Ellery Queen series. Trying to figure it out with the Detective is half the fun.
November 15, 2010
Bob's computer is being very bad. The power supply got hit and it took out the motherboard and the HD with it. His friend Rob gave him a old power supply and motherboard to use, and he had a old HD to put in it, but when they installed windows it powered up like normal right up to where it is supposed to be ready to be used, and then it shut itself down. The only way they can get it to stay on it to set it to 16 color VGA mode.
November 14, 2010
Yesterday morning when Bob woke up Monika was playing her game, and she did a whole bunch of missions and was battling monsters until early evening. During this time, Bob read his book, and she came out and watched the new Karate Kid movie. Then Bob's friend Rob came over and they worked on his computer some. They hope to get it back to being operational later today.
Only problem with all that is that when Monika finally let Bob use her computer, he went straight into playing the game himself and forgot all about my blog.
November 12, 2010
Monika mentioned having financial problems on her facebook, and Princess Boots and I mentioned it on our blogs, but Monika was still shocked when she got a email from paypal yesterday, and when she checked her account this morning her eyes started leaking.
Thank you to all of our generous friends!!!

Bob and Monika are worried because they don't think they will be able to buy enough gas to keep their car running for them to go to work all of next week. We all tried telling them that we don't mind if they just stay home next week, but then they reminded us that if they don't work that they can't buy our cat food either.
