About Me Meme!

Posted by Cecil the Cougar: at 8:42 AM

Tuesday, May 6, 2008

My two favorite gray brothers tagged me for a meme, so Mommie is giving me an extra day to post. She says if Gandalf and Grayson wants a Cecil Cougar to do a meme than a Cecil Cougar must!

The rules are as follows:

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.

Each player answers the questions about themselves.
At the end of the post,the player than tags 4 or 5 people and post their names,then goes to their blogs and leaves a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

Let the person who tagged you know when you have posted your answer.

1.What was I doing 10 years ago? - Being a twinkle in my Mommie's eye..waiting to be borned.

2.What are the 5 things on my to do list for today - Waking Mommie and Daddy up really early (check! done already!), give Mr. Penguin many playful biteys, kill Mommie's favorite bra with many biteys and bunny kicks, eat as many Temptations as I want because Mommie feels bad that she left me home alone this weekend to go to Disney, make stinky poopies!!

3. Snacks I enjoy - Temptations, CET Chews, Chick-hens

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire - Well obviously I would have to buy a big big house and give all stray kitties a home with lotsa foods, especially Temptations. I would also buy Mommie many new bras...so that I could kill them all with my mancatly bunny kicks!!!

5. Three of my bad habits - None. Seriously. ok, maybe stinky poops.

6. Five places I have lived - The place I was borned, My Mommie and Daddys house, and that is all. I am lucky that Mommie loves me lots and won't let me go ever ever ever EVER! I has a forever home!!! Purrrss

7. Five jobs I have had - Typist, Hunter, Friend (but not to vishus deer), blogger, Big Manly Mancat

I would like to tag:

  1. Boy, my genius furriend
  2. Parker, my perfect furriend
  3. Daisy, my stylish furriend
  4. Moki, my bestest furriend
  5. Adan, my very-far-away-from-me furriend
PS: Can I just tells you that Mommie and Daddy left me home alone this weekend and went to see the big Mousie at Disney's World!! Mommie says that she encouraged Daddy to give the Mousie a big bitey acause that is what a good mancat would do, but apparently Daddy is not mancatly enough for this job. That is why I should have gotted to go with Mommie instead!! Doncha think?

Thursday Thirteen: Leo and Cecil Edition

Posted by Cecil the Cougar: at 12:00 AM

Thursday, May 1, 2008


YAY it's THURSDAY! That means it is CECIL BLOGGY DAY!! I hope you are as excited as I am!

Today I am going to share my Thursday 13 with Leo the Lion! Mommie says that he is my big brother who went to the bridge before me. She says I probably would have bugged him a lot, but that he would have taken care of me anyway. So I am going to let Leo have half of my 13: he will say 7 things about himself and then I will say 6 things I did this week!


Fanks Cecil, this is a very nice purrthday gift to give me. I am excited to post on your blog! I hope that everyone likes me! Here we go....

  1. I am my Mommie's first cat.
  2. I raised Timby, my Grandma's cat, acause Mommie and I still lived with her when he came home (Mommie was only 13 years old). He eventually gotted way bigger than me!
  3. I like to stand up tall like a mongoose.
  4. I was really sad when my Mommie lefted for college without me. I tried to sneak away in one of her boxes. I am glad she eventually moved out of her freshman dorm into an apartment and broughted me to her! We were never meant to be apart!
  5. I really love to lay in the sunbeams!
  6. I also really love to lay on top of nice warm, clean laundry when it comes out of the dryer!
  7. And sometimes I like to make funny faces. Do you like my funny face? My ear is doing something funny too!
And now let me bring your attention back to me, CECIL THE COUGAR!

Here are 6 fun things I did this week!

  1. I made a MESS of my food bowls!
  2. Made super stinky poops so that Mommie had to clean my litter box early! Here I am telling Mommie, "go on maid, clean the box and add new litter!"
  3. I went out onto the screened in patio and looked at things!

    I saw a lot of GREEN:

  4. I acted cute for the camera so that Mousie would continue to fink I am Cexi Cecil
  5. I put big bitey marks into Mommie's lotion so that now it comes out in many different places. I thought this would be helpful, but Mommie wasn't too happy.
  6. ...and the fing I did most was fink about how grateful I am to everyone who encouraged Mommie to let me stay! It is taking me a long time to fank each person individually acause I am doing it in secret. I went over to Zoolatry and they helped me find some really cool outfits since I am now in the Secret Cat-Service!

Did I fool you??? These are very good disguises!!!

Fanks for visiting everycat, woofie, and bean! I am so grateful to all of you for being my furriends!

Until next Thursday,



Cecil: knock knock
Mom: Who's there?
Cecil: Cecil
Mom: Cecil who?
Cecil: Cecil the Cougar, not Cecil-Poo or C-Poo so stop calling me that!!!

Leo's Story

Hi everycat!

As you know, I will be making my Thursday 13 tomorrow, and I is very very excited! A special guest will also be making a Thursday 13 on my bloggie tomorrow... I cannot tell you who it is just yet!

I wanted to make this special post because Mommie has been feeling a little bit sad this past week. See this Saturday, May 3rd, would be Leo the Lion's 10th purrthday. I fink many of you know that Leo is the Great Kitty who Came Before Me. She was looking through some old pictures last night and also came across Leo's story that she wrote so that she would never, ever forget.

Leo had Chronic Renal Failure. Everyone who is signed up for the Mewsletter will be able to read all about this common disease in the issue that comes out at Midnight tonight.

But Mommie wants to post Leo's story. She wonders if anyone else has dealt with a kitty who has CRF and what kind of treatments they were/are on. If you have time, you can read Leo's story here. Mommie finally feels ready to talk about it, but she doesn't know anyone else who has experienced this before. She figured the blogosphere was the best place to find someone to talk to.



Thank You!

Hi Everycat and their Mommies!

Fanks so much for all of your kind words! Mommie and I feel so incredibly blessed to know all of you, and yes we really do feel like we know each of you. Fanks to all of my best friends in the CB and fanks to all of my friends who came out from lurking to e-mail me and Mommie.

Mommie had to take some time to decide what she was going to do. She really never ever ever wanted to stop helping me blog, and she didn't know how she would stop reading your blogs!

So we will continue being a part of your world!!! Fanks to everyone soooo much for helping me change Mommie's mind! All day yesterday when she looked at me she saw all of your faces. What did everyone do for Fashion Friday or Formally Feral Friday? We was very sad not to know.

So this is what we has decided for now: we will blog every week for Thursday Thirteen and will tell 13 things I has done during the week! We will also make a effort to visit all of your blogs as often as possible, without certain people noticing ;)

Kisses, kisses...

And many more kisses, purrs, and headbutts to all of you!

I gave Mommie the laser eyes for thinking she could stop me from blogging!

I fink you can see that my face is not happy at all at Mommie's behavior.

Don't forget about me on Thursdays,

Cecil the Cougar

Hi Everyone,

This is my last post.

I am really sorry to leave the cat blogosphere behind. I have been truly inspired by your generosity towards each other, and I feel blessed to have been a part of this for the past couple months.

I have enjoyed reading all of your posts and will miss blogging tremendously. It has been a very fun past couple of months. I feel like I know all of you and your "mommies." The internet has a great ability to bring people with common interests together. Sometimes I feel like I have more in common with each of you, then some of the people in my real life... it's so true that only other cat-people can understand each other.

I will still be running Feline Direct and still sending out the Mewsletter. Unfortunately the personality of Cecil the Cougar is going away. There are people in my life who do not understand this hobby... I am not sure how I will go about continuing Phi Theta Gatos. I will have to speak to Crystal (Moki's mom regarding it). I will not let it disappear, but it may have to undergo some changes.

I will miss you all and be constantly wondering how you are doing.

So here is my tearful goodbye,

Kristina (Cecil's human mom)

If you need to get in touch with me regarding Feline Direct or Phi Theta Gatos please feel free to email me at kristina@felinedirect.com .

PS: A special thank you to Daisy the Curly Cat and her Mommie for introducing me to all of you. It has been a sincere pleasure.

Circle, Circle
Dot, Dot
Now you have your Cooties shot.

Thankful Thursday: Mommie and Me Time

Posted by Cecil the Cougar: at 12:00 AM

I am very thankful for having a green blanket and a warm lap.

Can you see that Mommie and my paws are touching!

I am smiling pretty big.

PS: I have asked Mommie if I can get the Cooties vaccine so that I can have a speshul girlcat friend!

Mommy decided she was too tired to make dinner tonight...

So she decided to go get some delishus Chart Hut.

She gotted herself a chick-hen pita.

Go Away Mommie, I has a fully tummy and wants to take a nap now!

Cat Poem

Why Own a Cat?

When it comes to The Cat, there's a danger you know.
You can't own just one, for the craving will grow.
There's no doubt they're addictive, wherein lies the danger
While living with lots, you'll grow poorer and stranger

One cat is no trouble, and two are so funny,
The third one is easy, the fourth one's a honey
The fifth is delightful, the sixth one's a breeze.
You find you can live with a houseful, with ease.

So how 'bout another? Would you really dare?
They're really quite easy, but Oh Lord, the hair!
With cats on the sofa and cats on the bed,
And crates in the kitchen, its no bother, you said.

They're really no trouble, their manners are great.
What's just one more cat and one more crate?
The sofa is hairy, the windows are crusty.
The floor is all footprints, the furniture's dusty.

The housekeeping suffers, but what do you care?
Who minds a few nose prints and a little more hair?
So let's keep a kitten, you can always find room.
And a little more time for the dust cloth and broom.

There's hardly a limit to the cats you can add
The thought of a cutback, sure makes you sad.
Each one is special, so useful, so funny,
The food bill grows larger, you owe the vet money.

Your folks never visit, few friends come to stay,
Except other cat folks, who live the same way.
Your lawn has now died and your shrubs are dead, too.
Your weekends are busy, you're off with your crew.

There's cat food and vitamins, grooming and shots
And litter and toys and more which cost lots.
Is it worth it you wonder? Are you caught in a trap?
Then your favorite comes up and climbs in your lap.

His look says you're special and you know that you will
Keep all of the kittens in spite of the bill.
Late evening is awful, you scream and you shout
At the cats on the sofa, who refuse to get up.

The whole thing seems worth it, the cats are your life.
They're charming and funny and offset the strife.
Your lifestyle has changed, things just won't be the same.
Yes, those cats are addictive and so's the cat game!

New picture post tomorrow.

Sorry guys, Mommie has a rhetorical thesis due at 8am.

She is sort of a procrastinator, so she has to do it all today/tonight.

PS: Mommie stumbled upon this website for Toronto Veterinary care. It looks very promising. If you are looking for a Toronto Veterinarian I think this website will be very helpful. The website will be able to direct you to the proper people at the Toronto Veterinary Hospital and the best Toronto Vets! Have a look!*

Sleepy Sunday:

Keeping my harness nearby and dreaming about going for a walk...

Me as a tiny babycat sleeping:

It has always been a favorite hobby.

Who will come join me for a catnap since I do not have any brothers or sisters?

Inside the Computer AGAIN!

Who is that handsome mancat in the computer?

I fink you will agree that he looks very familiar...

It is ME, Cecil!

WARNING: Your computer has just recieved a Cecil-Virus!

Warning Warning this Cecil-Virus is very scairty!


I did not mean to scare you with my scairty face!

I hope you has a good Caturday!

Cozy like a bug in a rug!

Hi Mommie up there!

I am not really a lap cat at all...

But sometimes it is nice to be cozy like a bug in a rug.

The lap is the perfect spot to play with the camera strap!

It is always a good idea to throw a protective paw over your Mommie.

You never know what is lurking in the couch!

Happy Friday!

Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday:

I has only been a part of the blogosphere for a couple months now, but I am so amazed at how close everyone is. What Cat Friends Helping Friends is doing is wonderful, and is inspired by all of you who came to each others rescue; came to the aid of a stranger whose face you only recognize as a tabby cat or a tuxie or a ginger, a meezer or even a curly cat. I am so fankful to be a part of this, because the world is going crazy but because of the cat blogosphere Mommie and I know there are still lots of selfless people left.

(I fink maybe you can tell Mommie wrote a lot of that paragraph, but I agree!)

I would like to especially fank all the cats who has joined Phi Theta Gatos!

Fanks everyone on the Funny Farm, our first girl and boy members!
You each has a special place in the group!

Fanks Emil and Karl, our two coolest cats!
"I wear my sunglasses at night, meow meow!"

Fanks Daisy MaeMaus, first solo girlcat to join!

Fanks Karen Jo, our Honorary-Cat member!

Fanks to Perfectly Parker for being our most perfect member!

(*I fink you can maybe see that Mommie is trying out a couple different badge ideas to figure out the best look.)

Who will join next? All proceeds go directly to Moki. Phi Theta Gatos would like to hold our first contest but we do not has enough members yet. Mommie boughted the prize today... so peas join!

And now here is a poem that I wrote for all my furriends:

Cecil's Fankful Poem:

I'm fankful for the food in my tummy
especially the Temptations cause they're yummy.
I'm fankful for a roof over my head,
but why can't I sleep in the People bed?
I'd like to take Daddy's place
and purr all night in Mommie's face.
I am fankful for my favorite toy;
I am fankful for being a boy.
I would not like a girl to kiss,
cooties make me want to hiss!
I'm fankful for every furriend,
Best furriends until the very end!

Until tomorrow,
