Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

Hi Everyone!

So first I want to remind you to come by on 11/11 for our commentathon - we will donate 25 cents for every comment to Santa Paws!

Well, I have to tell a Gus story. Gus is a sweetie and has the funniest little meow - he just sounds like a crazy man. So last night I was getting ready for bed and I heard him yeowling his funny meow downstairs. I thought that one of the other cats was winning at a wrestling match, so I came down to look, and well, it wasn't wrestling. Gus was sitting on the table staring at the ceiling meowing. I think he could hear Brad moving around up there and that is what got his attention. Well, the video camera was right there on the table so I thought that would be a great time to get some video of it. I didn't want to turn on the overhead lights because I thought he would stop, so I just used the light on the camera, and I got a good two minutes of it. Or so I thought. When I went to stop the video I hit the button and the little record light came on. Apparently I had hit it a second time and turned it off right away. I waited and tried to get some more, but couldn't get even one squeak - though I did get Stella purring. I even went upstairs and told Brad to start walking around again, but it didn't work. Anyway, I decided to post the video of me trying to get him to talk because it has the purring on it. And you can see Gus looking at the ceiling, which is cute.  The video is at the bottom.

And if you haven't been by, be sure to go visit the Katnip Lounge and see what Hugo is up to - there is a link at the top of the page.

Oh, and I forgot yesterday but it is getting close to the big holidays so I wanted to see if anyone wanted to do a card exchange with us - it was so much fun last year and I wanted to do it again. If you want to you can fill our our form here - I set up a special email address just for holiday cards this year. I know I still have addresses from last year, so even if you aren't into sending one, there is a chance you could get one! Oh, and there is an autoresponder set up on the form, but it is just a "hey we got your response" kind of thing - I didn't feel like paying for the upgrade to do a custom response. But it will let you know you sent it. I will get back to you with our info once I see the form come through!

Anyway, here is the video. I hope you like it.

The video has almost a spooky haunting kind of Halloween feeling to it! Of course, we will be by for the comment-a-thon!

"Crazy noises, what are you talking about? I'm too sophisticated to make those kind of noises."

What great laser eyes you have Gus! Cute post.

Old Kitty said...

Awwwww!!! Gus!!! What a sweetie!! I love how he's looking at you as if denying all knowledge that he made such a noise! LOL! He's so funny!! Great to hear Stella purring!!!

Thanks for this clip - it's so super cute - I have to admit, I can't stop laughing at Gus's expression of "meow? what meow?"!!! Take care
