Jake and Bathsheba

Five Reasons We Blog

Our friends DaisyMae, Bubbles, and Chairman Mao all tagged us for the "five reasons we blog" meme. (Thank you, all!) We were going to do "Five for Friday," but Mom decided to watch one of her new Jane Austen DVDs instead of helping us blog last night! Imagine that! She loves Jane Austen's novels and became obsessed with her favorite Pride and Prejudice when Dad gave her as a Christmas present the 10th anniversary edition of the BBC miniseries staring Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy. Seeing how pleased she was with that gift, (and the fact that she likes to play some of her favorite scenes before going to sleep at night at least a few times a week), he decided that he was on a roll. For her birthday he bought her Emma starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Sense and Sensibility with Emma Thompson. She watched Emma for the first time last night though she had seen it in a movie theater about ten years ago.

Anyway, enough about Mom and back to the subject at hand. Why we blog was once the subject of one of our Thursday Thirteen posts, but we actually had more than 13 reasons. Here we'll try to narrow it down to five:
  1. To make new friends and learn about their lives.

  2. To keep Mom from watching all those murder shows on TV: Law & Order, CSI, etc.

  3. To give Mom a reason to take hundreds of photos of us.

  4. Because it's fun.

  5. Because it's addictive, and we can't stop!

We think most everyone has been tagged on this by now, but if they haven't been yet, we tag the Famous Five in Wellington, New Zealand: Orb & Jupiter & Mitten the Smitten Kitten & Poppygirl-AKA Princess Poppygirl & Teeny Tiny Tottie Mctabby - AKA -tottie. They've been going through a rough time lately, but we've always enjoyed reading about their adventures in such a faraway land.

Mom told me that I have to report on Jake. He did something to his right paw and has been limping around on it since this morning. Mom couldn't find anything obviously wrong, and he didn't cry when she touched it. Hmmph! I think he may be faking just to get Mom and Dad's sympathy. It didn't deter him from successfully begging for pieces of roast chicken at dinner tonight. (Yes, I did get a little, too.) Mom will take him to the vet if he doesn't improve by Monday.

That's weird - my mom watches Court TV, like Forensic Files and shows like that. Sometimes I think she's addicted like you say you are to blogging.

I hope Jake's paw gets better soon!

You are right, blogging is lots of FUN! I hope Jake's paw gets better soon. Maybe it's just a little strain.

Hello Bathsheba, I see you are an older cat too. I am ten and a half now. I don't know about all those things you do, like tagging etc and Lynettea didn't know either when I asked. We think someone tagged us a good while ago, but I didn't know what to do about it. I am trying to learn as quickly as I can.
I like to learn about the other cats' lives too. Sometimes when I sit on the windowsill in the sun, as I am this morning, I can think about all the other cats I know now.

Those are all great reasons to blog! And I'm sorry to hear Jake has an ouchy paw. I hope it gets better really soon.

Purrs and kittyhugs from MaoMao!
