NEW UPDATE- we interrupt your weekend to announce...

Mom has been working all night like crazy on our blogs. Mostly on hers but my big news is that,


To be honest I was not a fan of gmail, especially since I had to log out of blogger to access it. Mom and I didn't realize it would be such a pain to to that. So we changed my email address to one at hotmail. Mom is a big fan of how easy hotmail is to use and has set up her own blog account as well as her personal account with them. Who knows why she needs two accounts all on her own!?


Yep it is the same as my old one just at hotmail instead of gmail.

We have set up forwarding on my gmail account however we will be shutting it down in the coming months so please change my contact information on your emails. back to regular programming.......

Mopey Maddening Monday

Well Grandma got home and got me in trouble for "my great big mess"!!!

Little does she know my "mess" may have saved us from potential robbers!

I think I will take a snooze, it was hard work watching Grandma clean up the mess.

Home Alone

I think I have set up enough traps for robbers.

cat food to slip on
cat toys to trip over
and the Blair glare

Grandma is away this week and I need to take extra precautions!

Is there milk on my chin?

We want to know....

Hi friends,

I hope that your monday isn't full of blahs or snow or cold or anything of that sort that causes hibernation. I am still trying to get out of hibernation mode, its too cold to do anything here.

Mom and I were talking and thinking where we would like to live and why
(my votes all had no snow!)

S0 we would like to hear from you, what area do you live in or would like to live in and why?

Perhaps Mom and I will end up there next year!

Special Saturday

Don't think that I didn't forget about that award Miss Finn gave to me! She gave me the Kreativ Blogger award, soo exciting. I just love getting and passing out awards. It is wonderful to know that people like to read my blog, and I like to share the news too.

And I must also tell you 10 things about me that you might not know:

1. I don't miss living with my Mom.

2. I don't like being petted on my bum (head only please)

3. I only use a card board scratcher

4. I play with toys all by myself

5. I have to drink my bowl of milk everyday or else I get grumpy and meow all day at the fridge

6. I don't like when people come over to visit

7. I like to play with dogs on my own terms

8. I enjoy crossing the street

9. I spend all night outside exploring but never kill or bring anything back home

10. I am not allowed to sleep on anything by my own beds (and I follow the rules)

Now I am supposed to pass this onto several of my friends;

1. Princess Jasmine

2. Amber

3. Truffle and Brûlée

4. Alfred

ps. Mom and I are having issues getting pictures off blogs, we are still figuring out this mac!

Mango Minster, Here I Come

Mango Minster 2012 has officially started and the categories are; too darn cute, bad sport, cracker critters, adventure animals, too darn cute and working stiffs. The rules are;

1. You must have a blog that is about you.

2. ONE entry per household per category. Let's save room for everybody, OK, since I can only take 100 entries total.

3. It's OK to enter as a group.

4. Photoshop and videos are allowed.

5. Choose your category (see descriptions below).

6. WRITE A POST about why you are the best choice in that category (and post it - sheesh).

7. PEEMAIL ME at backupdog AT comcast DOT net to let me know you have posted. THIS ONE IS IMPORTANT, OK? Be sure to mention what category you are entering and whether you are a boy or a girl (some of you have the watcha call androgynous names and without an undercarriage check, well...).

8. Entries will be counted by date / time stamp in my peemail.

9. After you enter, be sure to pick up the official contestant picture from the sidebar to display on your blog.

Well I checked out all the categories and all of the competition and decided to enter in the







wait, wait, it appears someone messed up the categories

Mango what on earth is your Momma doing making a Bad Sport category?

I thought it was the Bad Blair category.......

Somebody had better fix this up and fast!

What do you mean that your Momma can't just change the categories now?

Who cares if there are other contestants entered!

Well fine consider this my entry to the....ugh.....bad sport category.

I guess I am a bad sport because I growl at Mom when she cuts my toe nails, pets me or hugs me

I suppose you could say I am a bad sport because I like to hiss at my family when they try to play with my toys

You might say I am a bad sport when I scratch my Mom during bath time

You would probably say "she's a bad sport" when I bite really hard and then walk away during playtime

I would let you call me a bad sport during family meals since I do not associate with them at all

I might be okay with you calling me a bad sport when I walk away from the flashy beast

You could probably call me a bad sport when I push Mom's face away when she tries to kiss me

You may call me a bad sport when I requested a name change for this category even with my prettiest face on

I guess since that name change isn't happening that I am going to be a bad sport about the bad sport category. Plus for all you dogs in the contest Mango named them CATegories not DOGegories so don't expect to beat all of us cats. Actually you better just enter in the poor sports category for when you lose.

So instead place your votes for a CAT like perhaps ME to win the Mango Minster Tiara!

What no tiara now? How about a crown? Jewels?


Mango this bad sport category is making me look like a bad sport instead of a bad cat!

I Blair truthfully declare that this blog belong to me and only me, my undercarriage contains only female parts and my photoss are not photoshopped in any manner.

Perhaps a scepter would be acceptable?

Just discuss it with the Momma

Me hit people with it.......I would never do that......lightly tap perhaps

Thankful Thursday

I have been very slack in posting this wonderful award from Nellie the cat from hell. She awarded me the Leibster Award. THANKS SO MUCH NELLIE

Nellie is a naughty naughty kitty just like me in fact her blog is named the cat from hell! She is a wonderful blogger and had two doggy sisters and a kitty brother. I just don't know how she puts up with them all! Nellie and I have been friends ever since I discovered that she was a super naughty kitty and she did a guest post on my Naughty Kitty Lessons. You can find Nellie at

What is this award? Leibster is German and means dearest, beloved, or favorite. The premise of the Leibster Blog Award is to spotlight up-and-coming blogs with less than 200 followers. I especially love that in being honored you are also being acknowledged by your online peers. The origin of this award is quite a mystery. It seems to have taken on a life of its own. Here are the official rules for recipients of the Liebster Award:

1. Copy and paste the award on your blog.

2. Thank the giver and link back to them.

3. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.

4. Hope that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.

My 5 picks to share this award with are:

1. The Boston Lady

Miss Ann is a very special friend of mine and I love learning about her family. She has the coolest ideas about decorations in her house and she lets all her pets run around uncontrolled....even Darcy her Grandkitty!

2. Muesli

Muesli is actually the little sister of another friend of mine Honey the Great Dane...Honey shares her blog with Muesli. Muesli is a very pretty kitty and she reminds me of myself a lot!

3. Two French Bulldogs

Lily and Benny are quite the pair, Mom says they are soooo cute. I think they have some very interesting views on the world around them and they even put up with their Mom dressing them up all the time.

4. Rottrover

Bart and Ruby are the most loveable rotties around. Mom and I both love to see the pictures of them and their cute little bums!

5. Katnip Lounge Kitties

The Katnip Lounge Kitties are the coolest Kats around. No way could I convince my Mom to adopt 13 of me! They live in the nice warm sun all year round and have the most katfriendly house!

Thanks again Nellie!

New Years Resolutions

I thought I had some resolutions from last year but guess not. I am going to try to make some for this year though.....

1. Try not to be so bossy (unless I need to go out, come in, more food, treats, milk, etc)
2. Enjoy snuggling my humans more often (so long as they only touch my head)
3. Be nicer to my Mom when she comes to visit (only if she isn't cutting my nails)
4. Be ready for some changes when they come (Mom plans on finishing school this year)

I had a wonderful year last year blogging and meeting all kinds of new friends. If you are just joining me now or have been following since the beginning of my blog I am very glad to have you along. I look forward to continuing to blog as long as you all stick around too!

Well I do hope that everyone had a wonderful winter holiday, mine wasn't very good.

To start on Christmas eve Grandma left me in the house all alone and went to go visit Mom and all the others. Then Santa didn't even come to visit me, he just left my presents with Mom. After that I heard some noises and my big mean cousin Tippy dog was being left at Grandma's too. I even got shut in the basement. I think it was something about how he is a big meanie who likes to have kitties and small puppies for a snack. Grandma and Tippy's family came back for the night but they I was left all alone again. They didn't even bring my presents home for me. The nerve of them!

New years wasn't even any better, Mom and the small pest came to spend the night. We don't promote any kind of drinking and driving and I live right close to the town hall where Mom likes to attend celebrations. Honestly the pest is weird, she is 5 pounds of annoying dog (I think) who plays with all my toys and snuggles my Grandma and Mom.

However even though I still haven't gotten my christmas presents...ugh. I have some wonderful news to share that Mom is typing this for me on a brand new Macbook Pro! So far Mom and I are thrilled with the switch to Apple. Plus since all Mom wants to do is play on the laptop we will have loads of posts to start off the year on the right foot!

Stick around because tomorrow sometime I will be revisiting last years new years resolutions and making this years!

ps. perhaps we will get our pictures uploaded by then.....maybe

pss. Madi and Mom, Blair does so well with the pictures because I didn't send them to her house with Grandma, hee hee. One of the only good things about not living with your kitty (I miss not having her around tons). Although neither Blair or my pets at home were curious about the christmas decorations this year beyond sleeping under the tree.
