Sea Monkeys!

Yay! Rena finally got my Sea Monkey kit set up. Santa brought it for me for Christmas, but Rena didn't want to get it up and running until it got warmer. She put the eggs in the other day, so they should be hatching soon. I can't wait!

I haven't been up to much lately ... did eat some grass out in the weedy area of the lawn. That was fun. I hope you are all having a good weekend!

It's my Birfday!

I'm a big two-year-old kitty today! My family had a party for me tonight. There was cake, presents, and cards. The boys even sang "Happy Birthday" to me.

Here I am with one of my birfday cards.

Here is my people's cake. It was chocolate.

My cat was fishy flavored. I got to eat on the table -- much to Rick's dismay -- and I even got to eat off one of the monkey birfday plates.

Here I am with the boys opening my presents. I got a squirrely and a funny bunny.

Here I am playing with my squirrely under the table. It chirps!

What a fun birthday! I'm all tuckered out! Good night!

Big Day Tomorrow!

Tomorrow is my birthday! I'm going to be two years old. Rena says we're having a party -- with presents, cake, balloons, and everything. Rick's kind of cranky. He says no one fusses over his birthday so much. I wonder what kind of cake I'll get.

Red Nose Denny!

Hey, look at me ... my nose is red! I look kind of silly. You can see my picture on the website by clicking here. This is for Australia's Red Nose Day coming up on June 29th. Here is a little of what Red Nose Day is all about ...

In 1988, the Red Nose Day concept was adopted by SIDS and Kids organizations around Australia. This annual event captured the imagination of the Australia public and has since contributed a large portion of the funds raised by SIDS and Kids. With a 94 percent recognition rate in Australia (Quantum research, 2008), the concept of donning a red nose for a day to be silly for a serious cause has expanded to involve celebrities, businesses, vehicles, and buildings. The campaign runs through the month of June, culminating on Red Nose Day, the last Friday of June.

I wish the USA would start doing Red Nose Day to help save babies as well. So, what are you waiting for? Upload your red nose picture right now.

I have a twin?

I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "Gosh Denny, you are such a beautiful kitty." Well, guess what! That picture is NOT me! Can you believe it? It really isn't me. The kitty in the top picture is Teddy. He lives with one of Rena's writer friends that she met through Facebook. Every time she posts a picture of Teddy, Rena can't get over how much we look alike. We really do -- it's uncanny!

I would love to meet Teddy sometime. I think it would be fun to take a picture of us sitting side by side. I wonder if Teddy is the same size as me. I'm a big boy. My vet doctor says I weigh seventeen pounds. If you'd like to learn more about Teddy's person, Anjali Banerjee, please click here. She has some great books. You might even have read them. What I like about Anjali is that she has rescued cats, just like me. I think that's neat. I also think it's neat I have a twin. They say everyone has one. I guess Teddy is mine. Here I am pictured below ...

It's All About ME!

Here is a picture of me and Neil, taken last September. I look kind of mad in the picture, but I wasn't. I just wanted to get down on the grass and play. I'm pretty sure this was taken when the boys started school. I got to spend some time outside while they collected crickets for a science experiement. There are crickets all over the place in the fall. I love pouncing on them. Actually, I'm an indoor-cat and don't go outside much. I like going outside, but only when someone is with me. There are scary things outside -- like ravens! I thought it would fun to list some things I love, as well as some things I don't love so much. Here is my list ...

Purina One Crunchies
Feathery toys
Cooked ground turkey
Squirrel watching
Crunchy kitty snacks 
Bird watching
Bug hunting, especially crickets
Getting my fur combed
Sitting in the windows
Watching movies with the boys
Stealing Neil's chair in the classroom
Leaning on Rena's legs at night
Rough-housing with Rick
Eating Kitty's food
Putting my feet in Kitty's water bowl
Chasing Kitty around the house

Soft kitty snacks -- yuk -- give them to Kitty!
Loud noises
Having to take a shower
Getting my nails trimmed
Turkeys on the deck
Riding in the car
Going to the vet -- the worst -- take Kitty!

Oh, sure ...

Go ahead and laugh. How would you feel if someone photographed you with kitty litter on your nose? I'm sure you've never walked out of the restroom with toilet paper stuck to your shoe, right? Oh well ... at least I'm still cute.

Zzzzzzz ...

I'm so, so tye-derd today. It's cold and rainy. The wind is pounding on the house and it keeps waking me up. I hope Rena starts a fire in the wood stove. If she doesn't, there's no way I'm leaving my comfy bed today. Nope, no way!

Hi, I'm Denny! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Rena thought it would be fun to have my own blog. She figured since she posts about me so much on her blog that I might as well have my own site. Purrsonally, I think she made this blog to annoy her husband. He rarely reads her blog, so now she'll have an excuse to nag at him to read mine. "Did you read Denny's blog yet? Did you? Did you?"

Actually, this isn't new to Rena. Back in the 1980s she had a pet-related pen pal newsletter. The editor was her cat, CJ and the whole paper was written in his voice. I never knew CJ. He died a long time ago, but everyone says I look just like him. The newsletter was called PET PALS! and it had members from all over the world.

A little about me -- my life started a hard way. I was what people call a feral cat. I guess that means wild, so yeah, that sounds like me. I was born in a little town called Hot Springs, Montana. Not much else is known, except that someone trapped me and my sister in a cage. We were scared! Then we were taken to this lady's house where a bunch of other cats lived. There were all sorts of toys, scratching posts, and food. The best part was the food! It's hard to find food, especially when you live in the wilderness with bears and ravens. I hate ravens!

Then one day Rena showed up with Rick and their four kids, Nichelle, Nicole, Nathan, and Neil. They'd seen my picture on Pet Finders and Rena couldn't get over how much I looked like CJ, especially with the little hair tufts in my ears. So, I decided to adopt them. The rest is history. I'll be two-years-old on June 25th. Rena says we're going to have a great, big party -- with balloons and cake and presents and everything! Rick says we're not, but I'd bet you a kitty treat he's wrong.

Nichelle took this picture of me when I was just a tot. I thought it would be a fun picture to post for my first blog. From the looks of things, I had either just eaten or gotten a drink. My nose is wet. I'm a little bigger now, as you can see from the picture on my header. My vet says I need to lose a pound. A whole pound. He's just a crazy, crazy man! Well, I'm off for my mid-morning nap. Thanks for reading!
