Sammy Sleeps Anywhere!

Cats sleep anywhere, any table, any chair. Top of piano, window-ledge, in the middle, on the edge. Open drawer, empty shoe, anybody's lap will do. Fitted in a cardboard box, in the cupboard with your frocks. Anywhere! They don't care! Cats sleep anywhere.
~Eleanor Farjeon (1881 - 1965)

My humans went somewhere again! Without me.... :( But, oh well. They went camping in Eastern Washington, at an RV Park called Blu Shastin. They stayed there for four days, and said it was very fun. :) I'm glad they had fun. They said it was hot, and they climbed a mountain, and were bitten by mosquitoes (apparently, that WASN'T so fun), and did a ton of other things, too! Here's the link if you're ever in Washington and wanna check it out!

New Doggie Sister?

This is crazy! How could my humans do this to me?! They're actually CONSIDERING getting me a new sister! A DOG sister! A corgi, actually. She is a five-year old girl who needs adopting. You can see her for yourself, here; She's kinda sweet-looking... But imagine!! Me with a DOG in MY house! It's totally outrageous, don't you think?

I'm SOOO sorry I haven't posted in FOREVS!! :( Procrastination, and schoolwork, and.... oh, it's killing me. :( Gah! Okay, but I'm back! Just in time for Tristan's birthday, I see! :D Happy birthday, girl! :) Fifteen, wow... Well, to fill you in, since last I posted I...
-Had a visit from my evil, mean, gorgeously pretty cousin (I think cousin, right?) cat, Ashley, who was in heat and wanted to kill everyone
-Got covered in blue chalk (which made me blue for about a week!)
-And stayed home while my humans went on a long trip!

I'll fill you in with more details, but right now, I'm working on other projects, such as some COMICS! It will be very fun and I will try my best to stay on track.

~Keep Purring, Sam

Happy Easter!!

Happy Easter, everybody! May the bunny-guy visit you with lotsa eggs filled with yummy birds! I'm enjoying an Easter Sunday treat with my buddy, Harley. Yep... He's not my enemy anymore. We've become best buddies now. We really weren't all that different in the first place... :) In fact, I'm so happy, I'm cancelling the contest and letting you ALL have FREE designs of your animal-comanions (or you)!! Just Kidding! Happy late April Fools! :D But anyways, have a wonderful day!

Your Furiend,

I'm It! Wordy Wednesday!

Jacqueline tagged me! I have to go into my pictures, look in the second folder, take out the tenth picture, and tell the story behind it! Hooray! This is me. I think the humans call it a wicker magazine basket. I liked it very much, and so I have claimed it, and it is mine. It is actually very comfy. My human-editor thought it was funny how I just layed down in it and went *flat!* so she took a pic. Yay!

Alright, now, I have to tag 5 blogging friends to play this game, so...

1. Tristan and Crikey!
2. Anya and Kareltje!
3. Amy and the house of cats!
4. Zippie, Sadie, and Speedy!
5. Hot MBC!
...and... (yes I know, I'm bending the rules)
6. Kasmid!

Tag! You're it! Play with me!

"You've Been Pinched" Award

Uh-oh! The leppry-cons are invading the blogosphere! This leppry-con (which looks suspiciously like me) doesn't care if you're wearing green or not! He'll pinch you anyway!

What's the rule of this award? Simple! Pass it on to five or more blogging friends telling them, "you've been pinched"!

I'm inviting all of my members to take this badge! You've all been pinched! *OW!*

Happy St. Pat's! Get dressed in green, or them leppry-cons'll get'cha! My human-editor is wearing green today - so are all my other humans. Thankfully, I'm safe every day of the year, cuz my collar is a nice shade of blue-green. ;) The leppry-cons won't be able to pinch me! And my blog is safe, too! Yay! ...BUT... JUST for an EXTRA dose of luck, here's some green things to brighten up the post!

Random Cat Fact #2

Okay, so we all know cats are fast. Really, really fast. Have you ever seen a cat run from a hungry Rottweiler? We can be pretty fast when we want to be. But really, what is the fastest cat? Well, that would be the Egyptian Mau, one of the oldest breeds of cats! The Egyptian Mau (which means "cat" in Egyptian) can reach up to speeds of 30 miles per hour! Now that cat has some scary neighbor dogs! Why is this? Probably because of their long legs, and a unique flap of skin extending from the flank to the back knee, which allows for great agility and large steps. Run, kitty, run!

Samson is Sleeping (Human's Post)

Okay, this is the "human-editor" -- hi!
Wish I had my camera right now! Man!
Okay, I wish you could see this, but Sam's asleep on my beanbag chair right now, and seriously, I think he's dreaming about eating steak or something. He started smacking his lips, like, twenty times repeatedly IN HIS SLEEP!!!!! Absolutely SO funny, wish I could have captured that on video.... Uh-oh! He's waking up!! Gotta go! Bye!



I love my human-editor very much. When she takes a shower, I follow her into the bathroom and just lay around. Even though she leaves the door open so I can leave if I'm scared by the sound of the fan or rushing shower water, (silly human - I'm not scared!) I stay in there the WHOLE TIME! How's that for love? She's so nice - she worries about me. She keeps peeking her head out of the shower to see if I'm okay or if I'm still there, but I'm always on the bath mat, looking up at her. Aren't I nice? :)

...In totally unrelated news, my human wants me to ask you a question (which I regret to say, is about dogs). My human is in love with a breed of dogs called Pembroke Welsh Corgis. Why not just stay with cats, I ask her. But she loves those dogs. I know - she's crazy! Anyways, she saw some at the petstore today (*shudders* horrible place!) and fell in love all over again! She got to pet and hold three tri-color pups not even a month old! (She smiles and I grimace >:P) She was very happy. She has been studying them for years, and knows ALL about the breed. She was wondering if any of you knew anything about corgis, or if you had any and had some advice for her, because she wants to get one. >:( Bleck! Her (well, the other humans') problem is the shedding. Any advice there? She thanks you heartily. She wants to get a corgi pup so she can create her own blog and blog about him (heaven knows why!) so she can get off my blog and stop talking about STUPID DOGS! What's the theme here? Cats! Not dogs!

I'm feeling like the world needs a little more color...
Step into my magic portal with me and enter the world of senses!
Here, even cats can see all colors, and dogs can, as well!

Are you ready? Here we go...!

Green, creative, beauty, energy, nature, wild and free and dancing, romance...
Orange is fiery, spinning, singing, talent, friends and family, animals....
Blue.... Calming, wisdom, friendship, love and peace and truth, new ideas...
Red, flirty, brave and bold, true through tough times, always there, stubborn but loving...
Yellow, sunny, happy, joyful, flowers, innocent, unique, kind and friendly...
Purple, rich and royal, sweet and sour, drama-queen and silly-head....
Grey, Black, White, serious, truthful, dependable, helpful...
So, my wonderful world of colors is ending...
I must not let it fade away...
But there it goes, passing through the day...
Colors there to remind us of truth and love...
Creation and beauty...
But again I will see it another day...
But now black and white...
Is all I see.
Enjoy your colorful trip?

Award for Competitive Napping!

Unfortunatley, I did not win an official medal. :( But I'm not surprised. You should see the other competetors! But I did win this awesome thingy! Thank's Huffle!

Submit Photos for Contest!

Okay, here's how it's going to work; most of you have blogs, so those of you who want to participate in the contest, just post your favorite one picture of one (or a few) of your animal companions (or, as I have stated before, you if you so happen to be one) and leave a comment here to tell me. The others who don't have blogs my human-editor knows personally so they can send her pictures by email. Sound good? Good! Once everyone is in, we will get started!
(Also, if you do not wish to participate, or cannot for some reason, just please tell me. Thank you.)

Random Cat Fact #1

Cats do not see all the colors you humans do. The world around us we see in different shades of grey, black and white. What colors can we see? Shades of blue, purple, and green! As you can see, my blog is green, and I can see it, too! ;D Also, I sleep in a green chair, and green bean-bag chairs. The couch downstairs is green, and all the walls in my human-editor's room are green! It's like the whole house is cat-oriented or something!

"The Adventures of Super-Sam" Part Four

The cars zoomed past my face, nearly blowing me away and leaving the dirty, dank smell of automobiles hovering around me. Every time a car passed us, Gabby flapped her wings back in panic. Scaredy-crow.
...As for the cars - millions and millions of 'em. We were gonna hafta hitchhike on one of them. Hitching a ride was not easy, I knew. That's when a devious plan formed in my mind; I would need Gabby's help for this one. "Gabby," I proclaimed, turning to her and smiling, "I'm going to need a little favor, please."
Gabby eyed me. "What is it?"
She leaned close and I whispered to her my perfect plan.
"No! Absolutely not!"
"But why not? You'll be fine! It's not like you'll be hit or anything..."
Grumbling to her self a manner of things which should not be said, she slowly climbed the tiny hill. Then, with a flap of her wings she flew into the air and towards a big blue car. She zoomed quickly, beak-first, into the windowshield. The driver screeched to a halt and Gabby hit the asphalt, feighning death. The startled woman threw open the car door and rushed over to her. She was shaking and trembling unimaginably, as she cautiously made her way towards the crow.
I, of course, with my quick thinking, seized the moment and dashed through the open car door and into the backseat, gratefully uninhabited by children. Unfortunately, there was no Emma there, but that was to be expected. Still, one could be hopeful...
Gabby, though from my angle I could not see her, had already flown away, startling the woman even more, and was to follow us until we reached our destination - or at least as close as we were going to get. Then the rest of my plan would unfold.
The woman stumbled back into the car, shakily again, and brushed her blond hair back from her face. She started taking deep breaths. By now, from the back seat, I could see that other cars were swerving around her. It took her a few moments before she began driving again. I smiled triumphantly and sat in my sentry position; I was on my way to Teek's home. I might as well enjoy the ride.

Happy Belated Love Your Pet Day!

Today, let's celebrate love your pet day (since obviously I missed it yesterday...)! Be extra kind to your animal companion - whether that may be a walk, an extra scratch behind the ear, or a delicious treat! Yum!

Welcome to my Pad....

Oops! Wrong one! Oh well, show you my house later. But this one is cuter! ;D

Cat-O-Lympics: Napping Event

And now, our competitor from Sam-Wow-World! Wow, oh wow, oh wow! The crowd here is going wild. He may not be the favorite, but word is, he's the youngest (or one of the youngest) competitor here, at only two years.

And look at that form!

He likes to take multiple positions such as (above) the basic curl. And (below) the head-presser! Ooh, what a tough competitor!

And then... The close-up! Look at that happy sleeper! I think Sammy just might have won a silver! Who knows? Maybe even a gold!

But he's playing it safe... I don't know about this. We'll just have to see what our judges say.

15 Members!!!!

We have fifteen members!!! That means we can finally start our contest! Okay, here's the way it's going to work; everyone, get out your best picture of your animal companion (or you, if you happen to be one like me), and get it ready. I am going to find a way to use that mister linky thingy or something so that you can give the pictures to me. (Does anyone know the best way to do this?) Then, I will put you all in a number from one to (you guessed it!) fifteen, and then I will use a number randomizer (or a hat - whichever is easier) to choose randomly one of you to convert into an illustrated design! This'll be great! Comments on how I could best do this would be great! Thanks!

Let the Cat-O-Lympics Begin!

Hello dear sports fans out there! As you may know by the excitement by your humans at your house, the humans' famed Winter Olympics have begun, and are well underway as sports are played, tricks preformed, and medals won. And don't forget those treacherous thrills, spills and injuries that comes with the heat of the game!
But what about us cats? We're ten times more limber and lean than those humans, right? Well, Fin, internet blogging sensation is hosting the first-ever 2010 Cat-O-Lympics! There will be many events, and, contrary to the name, any online animal species can join! Humans, just get over it. You already have your own Olympics for gosh sakes! ...Anyways, pad on over to Fin-Land, where the games are about to begin! Go cats! Here's the link: Be there or miss out on all the fun! Hey, maybe for the 2012 Summer Cat-O-Lympics, we could have them over here at my place! Sound cool?

As for me? I think that I will try out the Competitive Napping Competition, Bare-paw Fighting, Late-Night Human Wake-up, and the Hiding Event. But there are so many more events! You can even host your own! That's right - you can even host your own competition! Come on! Sign up!

And my friend Crikey will be tough competition in the StrongCat Competition on the 16th. Wait - 16th? That's tomorrow! Crikey, we gotta get training!

Alright, my feline friends, I must go now. But before we head off to the training building, I must say one last thing; "Let the Games Begin!!"

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day - the day of romance! Get out those roses and boxes of chocolates! Whether you find your fancy in romantic dinners for two, a stroll around the park, stargazing, or maybe a big, social party with lots of cats (or humans), Valentine's Day is a day to celebrate! This is my Valentine's Card to you! Have a great day!

Lord of Wheels?

Frodo, gerbil friend of mine - almost lunch but not quite - has opened his own blog! (It only has one post so far with fifteen words, but give him a break!!) It is called "Lord of the Wheels!" Okay, that's just purrfect, don'cha think. But he accidentally made TWO blogs. Now, the funny thing is, this is the exact same thing that happened to my cousin, Teek. AND it has the same layout thingy as my cousin Teek's accidental-blog! Pr-et-ty weird!! Does anyone know what's going on?!

Trying to Nap

Ahh... A peaceful nap on my green-chair throne...
"Uh... hmm??"

"Ugh. Friggin' paparazzis...! Just go away already, will you?!"

"Yeah, I KNOW it's almost Valentine's Day, okay? I don't CARE that you wanna get a few pics for my blog! See me? I WANT TO SIT DOWN RIGHT HERE AND NAP!"

Poo. (Pouty face) Stupid humans just don't get it. *sighs*

"The Adventures of Super-Sam" Part Three

I wasted no time, hurrying to rescue the poor child. "Poor dear," Gabby, who had almost naught but bad experiences with humans, tried to fake sympathy for the girl.
Deciding that the best thing to do at the moment was to alert every animal with either super-sensitive smell, hyper-hearing, or a bird's-eye-view of the city, I went from door to door - and doghouse to doghouse - alerting every pet I knew of. Every bird that we passed as we meandered down sidewalks I called to and shared with them the dilemma. Every horse, every cow (yes, I live in a very strange neighborhood), even squirrels that scurried through trees were recipents of the news.
Passing a dog walking a human, I stopped, not minding racial differences, to talk to the dog. The dog, who was actually quite mannerful for a mutt, stopped and kindly smiled at me. "Yes, what can I do you for, cat?"
I partially noticed a bewildered look from the human at the sight of a cat, a crow and a dog all having a friendly chat together as I spoke. "I have important news that I must get to everyone. A human-child has been kidnapped by a big, evil human with a scary-looking dog, such as yourself. Except that you are not exactly scary-looking, Sir. You are actually quite friendly," I added, trying to be courteous.
This nice dog (never thought there would be one!) was appalled and got up, baring his teeth. "What?! How terrible! Don't worry, Mr. Cat - I will alert every dog I see while you get on the case!"
I was quite pleased at how well this dog understood the matter - and how quickly, too. "Yes, thank you very much! My friend and I must find her before it is too late. Thank you again, um...." I struggled to find the name. I looked on the collar. "Mr. Tanner. Thank you very, very much."
His tail wagged, "You are very welcome, Sir. And might I ask your name?"
"Samson," I replied, grinning. "The name is Samson. But I must be off! Come on, Gabby - we have a girl to find!" I raced off down the sidewalk, Gabby half-scurring, half-flapping after me, and Tanner pulling his human quickly in the opposite direction.
"Where to now, Sammy?" Gabby inquired.
"A Taxi," I said, racing through the small intersection. "We must go to Empress Teek!"

Kitty Friend Birthdays: Crikey!

While his sister is away, Crikey is having a birthday this weekend! He'll be 7, if I hear correctly, so let's give him a big, "Happy Birthday, Crikey!" This man-cat will get a special other present from me, but first, here is his card from me to him. Happy birthday, Crikey!

Heart Day is Coming Up....

Valentine's day is almost here! Have you made your valentines yet? I suggest some cute animal ones! Don't be afraid to get messy - it's part of the fun! Paste + cut + glue + sticker + glitter = cute valentines! (And don't forget that bold red!) Loads and loads of valentines! I'm making mine... Can't wait to see yours!

Super Bowl or Puppy Bowl?

Today is gonna be really fun! Whether you will be rooting for Colts or Saints during the Super Bowl, or a lot of *cute* puppies during Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl (don't forget the Kitty Halftime Show!), have a great time watching something! Me? I'm going to be watching my dreams. (Human, wake me when the Kitty Halftime Show is on, okay?)


Putch'a Paws Up!
P.S: I'm the cool cat in the blue uniform - on the other team is... Harley... And my human-editor's Grandma's cat, Ashley, is the cheerleader. Gosh, she's cute! (But from what I hear, she's really mean!)

Sumo Sunday: Sam the Wow v.s. Harley Davidson

*Ring ring!* (Bell ringing for wrestling to start)

With Sam-wow in one corner...

...And Harley in the other...

The wrestling is getting off to a heated start!

"You're going down, Sammy! We all know who's the alpha male, here!"

"Ha! Yeah, and it's not you!"

(Editor note: Toms...)

Wow, ladies and gents - this is one tough fight! I think these cats have met their match!

And - wait - what? ...It would seem as the contestants are abandoning the fight!

...Well, ladies and gentlecats, I guess we'll just have to wait for another match of Sumo Sunday cats to watch these tomcats fight again. Tune in next time!

Blog Greeting, by Samson the Cat

Here is a blog greeting I made. You can use it on your blog if you wish, but I would most appreciate it if you gave me my due credit. :) Hope you like it!

Whether you be cat or camel...
German-shepherd or a gerbil...
Chihuahua or chimpanzee...
Be you a cow, a sheep or a hog,
All is welcome on this blog.

Three More Members!!

/\ ~ ~/\

Hooray!!! Only three more members until our contest can begin!! ...Okay, I'm just too excited to wait to tell you!! The contest will work like this; once I have fifteen members, you each can send in a photo of one of your animal companions (or just you, if you are an animal) - which I still have to figure out how that will work - and I will randomly pick one of the pictures to illustrate! Maybe this will get more people coming! But I do hope people (or cats... or gerbils...) aren't just joining for the contest. I hope they're joining cuz they like my blogging. Either way, I'm psycho excited!


P.S: I think after this blogging session I'll go back to sleeping on my human's windowsill. :)

Things You Don't Say When You are in a Movie:

"Well, at least it's not raining."
"At least it can't get any worse."
"Something weird is going on..."
"I have a bad feeling about this."
"Aw, man - battery's dead!"
"It's quiet...TOO quiet!"

....And things you DO say when in a movie....



My Writing Dare

Happy Groundhog Day! Hope you're eating plenty of groundhogs! Yummy! Let's just hope it'll be an early spring! Now, to celebrate today, I have a fun dare for you to try - if you like writing, get a journal, and write a diary about someone that doesn't exist; a character that you made up. Once you've written a while, (and believe me, it doesn't have to be perfect), bring it to school, or an office where you work, and discreetly place it out in the open. Stick a sticky-note on the cover that says "Please Read", or something to that effect. Then, whoever is curious can read the marvelous adventures of your character! You can watch secretly from somewhere and see their reactions. And never get discouraged, either! It's fun - try it! It could be a diary of any one of any gender, age, race, lifestyle, or profession! Go for it!

Bright and Early!

I believed this morning, as I was feeling very loving and social, that it was my glorious duty to wake up all my humans with the wonderful sound of my musical meow. But for some reason unknown, they didn't quite appreciate this. In fact, my editor-human dared to call me a spoiled brat and a loudmouth! ....
I just meowed at the garage door a lot, then my big-tom-cat-human (he is the alpha-male of the humans) let me in the house. He pet me and filled up my food, but I didn't really want this; I still had work to do! So I went up to my queen-human's door and meowed and meowed, but nothing happened. So I went to my human-kit's room, but nothing happened. The nerve! Finally, my human-editor let me into her domain after a bunch of meowing. She told me I was wet, and pet me, and then she told me to go out again and stuff.
The story is longer, but in the end, everybody wakes up. Haha. The end!

Teek's Blog!

Teek's blog is looking so nice! (If you'll notice the way-awesome format I found her, courtesy of She's made some new posts, and she's also posted a picture! (No comment on my status of doing that... thank you...) So check it out! I do insist upon it, my being Duke Samson and all. ;)

Shedding is NOT a Problem!!

My humans think my shedding is a problem. Well, DUH, of course it's not!! It's purrfectly NATURAL! They put sheets and blankets over all of my chairs so I wouldn't "ruin" them, but the chairs are fine! *rolls eyes* Why won't humans put up with anything? *sigh*

Another great site I found! (Well, my human did, but come on.... who has the blog, here?) My human was looking for a dog-friendly frosting recipe, just for fun -- you know. But what she found was a whole SITE dedicated to parties for doggies! (Hey, they oughta make a page about parties for cats, too ;) ) Anyways, has recipes for doggie cupcakes, frosting, party ideas and more! Check it out!

FreeKibble? Is it truly possible?

I just discovered and and boy do I love them! Go on each day to answer one trivia question about cats and dogs, and each time you answer, right or wrong, you donate 10 pieces of kibble to a dog or cat in need in a shelter. I also found out they are supporting some kennels in Washington, so please, go on and answer the trivia to help pets in need! And I encourage you to tell your friends, too! Together we can make a difference!


Purrairs for Crystal

Recently on making a trip to my friends Tristan and Crikey's blog, I made a discovery that a family of blogging cats (and other animals) has lost one of theirs.

Jan of has lost her 11-year old tom, Crystal. Love and purrairs appreciated, we say goodbye. Comments are appreciated.

Something New

Sorry I haven't been posting for a little.... my human has been gone for a while now at a friend's, and I've gotten just a little depressed.

Well, my human has now started giving me new food, mixing it in with the old stuff. At first I was all like, "What? How could you mess with perfection?! This is terrible!", but then I got hungry... So I tried it. And you know what? Not that bad actually.
So I gues what I'm trying to say is, try something before you decide if you like it or not. Okay? 'Kay. Thanks.

"The Adventures of Super-Sam" Part Two

So, there I was, searching for the mysterious kidnapper and his worthless, mean-hearted dog. I sniffed around and I could definetly smell the scent of a car and a man and a dog -- all three being dark and evil and horrible-smelling.
Finding nothing there, though, I decided to go straight to the source. Gabby the crow, who was residence to a large tree just right outside of the neigborhood, down the sidewalk, was the most talkative, gossiping crow there was. She usually hung out on top of roofs where no one could see her most of the time, so she could listen in on conversations.
Gabby just happened to be on top of my roof, so I beckoned for her to come down. She started preening her feathers, obviously waiting for me to talk first -- unusual.
"Gabby, I need your help," I came right out.
She looked at me, "My help, Sammy? Whatever for?" She cawed laughingly.
"Emma -- that man that took her away. Who was he and where did he go?" I needed her help and she was certainly not helping.
She preened some more. "I don't know, Samson.... You seem pretty desperate for this information. I think I might need payment... Some food from your humans, perhaps?"
I growled and took a step closer to her, "I'm in no mood for games, now tell me where he went before I eat you myself!"
Gabby's happiness quickly faded and, a bit frightened and noticing that she was in an awkard situation, she mumbled something to herself. Finally, she decided that she would get no bargain from me. "Fine, then," she said. "I don't care for your stupid humans -- just the garbage and gossip that comes with them. But if you really want to know, fine -- I'll do if for you, Samson."
I could tell she was about to go into another elaborate speech, so I rolled my eyes, "Cut to the chase, already," I said, growing impatient. "This is serious buisness."
"Right," she said. "Well, word on the street is that man has been capturing a few human-chicks, and is planning to sell them for what humans call money. Worthless stuff, really..."
My eyes widened, "Sell them? Like, at a pet store or something?!"
"Guess so," she cawed. "Well, anyway, his name is Jim Coal, and he's working for a group of humans that capture human-chicks and sell them to other humans. Last I saw he went North up thataway," she pointed with her wing, "and he's probably headed to his hideout."
I was already formulating a plan in my head, "Thanks, Gabby."
"No problem," she cawed, but I could see she was a bit irritated that she got nothing out of this.
I thought a moment. "Tell you what," I said, "if you help me out with this whole thing, I might be able to get you a nice piece of bread or something from my humans after all."
Gabby immediately brightened up. "Sure, Sammy-O! Whatever you say! I'll get that human back in no time! Now, what do I need to do? And, say, do you think your humans have white-bread with maybe a little peanut butter on it...?"

"The Adventures of Super-Sam" Part One

"Sammy," I heard the call and the shake and rattle of kitty kibble. Skidding across hardwood and carpet, like a horse I scrambled down to the kitchen where my human set down the bowl of food. Hungily, I gulped it up.
"Good kitty," she pet me. I shrugged it off, too hungry to care about her baby talk. After I had eaten my fill, the door opened and I decided a quick walk around the neighborhood wouldn't hurt. Out my cat door and into the big world I went. It was early autumn, and the chill and breeze and fresh scent of cinnammon and pumpkin filled the air and ruffled my fur.
Padding up and down the sidewalks, I enjoyed the quiet afternoon and the birds twittering from their treetops. It was very serene and calming, and I almost felt like a nap on a sun-warmed stone.
Suddenly, I heard a worried and desperate cry. Running, jumping and dashing over grassy yards and beauty-bark, I found the owner of the mournful yowls.
It was Java the cat, looking shaky and upsetted. Like the gentlemen I was, I came up to her and said, "What seems to be the problem, Ma'am?"
Unseemingly rude, the light of hope faded in her eyes. "Oh, it's only you, Sammy. Where's Harley? I need the Alpha right away!"
I frowned, "Excuse me, but, um, I'm here. Hero Extrordinaire? You don't need Harley, silly." I sniffed around, "Now, what happened?"
Java, still a little disturbed (heaven knows why), started telling her story. "Well," she said, "I suppose it wouldn't hurt..." She started bursting into tears, "Oh, Sammy, my human! My little-girl human! You know -- Emma? This strange-smelling black human and his big evil dog took her away in their big-car! She was just out playing on her bike when all of the sudden the big-car pulled up and the man got out and took her away!!" She sobbed again, very disturbed.
I had to admit myself, I was very surprised and upset. Little Emma may not have been very good at handling cats, but she was nice and small and virtually harmless! And the mention of a big dog heightened my suspicions even more.
"Don't worry, Java -- Samson is on the case!"

Monday, January 18, 2010 back!

(Cue horror music and terrified scream) My little cousin's human has a leak in her apartment where there is getting mold, so she's come to spend another TWO DAYS with us!!



....Well, maybe it's not so bad. It's a bit irritating, but my human seems pretty happy... And, hey - she joined my blog, so maybe it's not so bad.

By the way, she's started her own blog (inspiration from whom, I might ask), and I've joined it. She's knew to the whole thing, so I may be helping her out if she needs it. The link is:

....I think is just a bit catchier...

My human says she's stressed.

A bunch of other female humans about her age all crowded into the house for nearly the WHOLE DAY for her birthday party. Sheesh! Talk about CROWDED!

I was really confused for most of it and a little stressed myself, because of all the people I didn't know, and all the noise, and new smells... You can understand.

Book Review for "Stealing Death"

This book review is for "Stealing Death" by Janet Lee Carey.

My human read this book lately and highly reccomended it to me. Reluctant - for I knew the tastes of my human and I were different by far - I started to read the book. As my paws flipped the pages, I couldn't stop! I knew I had found a good book by just the first chapter, and I was excited to finish it and see how it ended! When I finally did finish, though, I felt dissappointed. Why? Because I had finished it! It was so good! Here are the things about it I liked:

1. Quirky characters that I couldn't help but root for, and evil people I couldn't help but feel like I wanted to strangle!
2. An exciting and ingenious plot that was very unique and intriguing.
3. Even though it had no cats, it did have a fair amount of animals.
4. I just really enjoyed it. End of story.

So, what are you waiting for? Go read it!!

Here are my favorite spots to nap:

-the green beanbag chair in my human-editor's bedroom.
-the grean chairs with towels on them (put on especially for me) that are my thrones.
-my human-editor's bed - either bunk will do, but I prefer the one with a view ;)
-the camping chair out in the garage.
-the carpet, in a patch of warm sunshine.

Hope all your naps are good ones!


Naughty, By Samson the Cat

Sometimes, sometimes, when I'm naughty,
I use the carpet for my potty.
The couch is where I sharpen my claws,
I leave all my fur,
I break many laws.
The mantlepiece you treasured so?
Down to the floor I thought it should go.
And once then fallen, I thought it should quake,
And into a thousand pieces break.
I didn't use my litter box,
I hissed at you when you tried to talk.
I ripped your homework - tore it to shreds,
I jumped up onto Daddy's head.
I think I may have pulled up some hairs...
But you can see lots and lots up there!
The dog now has to have surgery;
It's not my fault - he barked at me!
I took the baby's breakfast, as well,
You may as well call me the cat from hell!
You must admit, though, that even through all that,
I'm your bestest, favorite cat!

A Kitten's Creed

Here is a look into the world of cat's:

Every housecat, when just a young kitten, must memorize and recite this solemn oath, aptly named, "The Kitten's Creed". Here I will recite it:

"I promise to...
Meow loudly at night to make sure you stay awake in case burglars come...
Scratch only the nicest furniture - my claws deserve the best...
Go to the bathroom behind the couch where you don't have to worry about it...
Practice my climbing skills on the draperies, just in case I need to know how...
Lap my milk sloppily - the fun way...
Have the most fun possible, doing whatever is the most fun...
Shed my fur all over, so you know that I am always there...
Play with my food...
Help staple your important papers with my teeth...
Hiss at every dog, vaccum cleaner, and toddler that may harm me...
Wake you up early to feed me...
...Comfort you when you are sad...
...Snuggle with you in bed...
...Protect you the best I can...
...Love you till the day I die...and after..."

So, if you ever bring home a new kitten, and they are meowing the whole way in their crate in the back of the car, just know that they are loudly reciting this over and over again, just to let you know that they will stay true to this honorable creed.

Quote of the Day #1

"Contrary to what you might think, I am not trying to ruin your furniture. This is not what it looks like."


Most cats have addictions such as...

Catnip. It's a cat's drug. You get on it once, and from then on, whenever it's available, you can't stop nipping. I take it in small doces - it's like a good beer; you can have a little, but not too much. Oh, remember - don't nip and prowl!

But I have two very *strange* addictions - I don't think they're that bad, but my humans think otherwise. You can decide for yourself.

1. Lasers. Once I see that beautiful, haunting bright red dot, zipping around, I cannot help but chase it. It's like I'm in a trance - I'll follow it anywhere -- maybe even off a cliff. Fortunately, we don't live near any cliffs, and dogs can't hold lasers.
2. String. I eat it. In fact, I eat paper, toilet paper (I have already explained this), string, and yarn. Oh, so good! I love the way it slides down my throat! ...But there are a few side-affects to this addiction, like nipping; throwing up. I always throw up after eating these things. I suppose they aren't the best for me, but I can't help myself! Just today, I saw a short, red piece of yarn on my human's floor, and I quickly yapped it up before my human could stop me. I have no regrets, though.

Paper? Yummy?

I recently noticed that white roll of fluffy thin stuff that humans use while in the, erm... 'bathroom' as you call it. Well, earlier I was able to get up close and personal with the stuff. Glorious stuff! You can play with it, rip it, and best of all - eat it! It is DELICIOUS!! I guess they call it toilet paper, and I ate a whole big strip of it - just gulped it down. It was like a thin, papery noodle. Haha. But then, for some reason, my human made me go outside into the cold. Something about throwing up...?


It has been raining FOREVER!! Well, I suppose it is Washington, but come on! I promise I'll post pics as soon as I can, but I can't find my camera charger, so I am bummed out about that :(

Ah, well. For my own personal NaBloPoMo, or whatever it is called, I'll be making lots of posts, so if the posts are kind of boring, don't blame me! I have nothing to talk about! It's a cat's life...

Where I Like to Be, By Samson The Cat

When it is really raining,
When I cannot catch a mouse,
I go inside,
Or rather hide,
Inside my human's house.
Or sometimes when I want to,
Get away from all their noise,
I make a fort,
Under the porch,
Of the next-door neighbor boys.
And sometimes when I'm naughty,
I'll make a little nest,
Under a car,
Where no rain drops are,
Where they call me, "What a pest!"


Well, my humans are all missing Teek, but I'm very happy to have her gone! ...Well, I might miss her, just a *little*... It was kind of nice to have someone around to play with...

Well, right now, it's all rainy and gloomy. This morning, my human came downstairs and let me in early because of the rain. She fed me and pet me, and helped me dry off. But rain means no birds, and very little mice. But at least I'll get to be inside and blog.

Why do humans eat such weird things? I mean - cereal? Waffles? Pancakes? Puh-lease! Wouldn't a good mouse do? Or bacon! Oh.... bacon... such goodness!

Sunday, January 10, 2010


Teek is leaving me! Finally! I can now have the house back to myself - besides my humans. No more meowing at night, no more watching her eat food that's better than mine, no more kitten laying on my favorite chair... Or following me around everywhere...


Sunday... Ah, Sunday. The humans have all gone off to church, the mouse-fields are loaded, there's fresh food in my bowl, and it seems as if all the birds are singing, "Samson, catch us if you can!"

Hope your Sunday is as wonderful as mine!


(PS: My humans say they are going off to visit someone with a dog who is about to have puppies. Traitors, I say! What's so interesting about puppies?)

Upcoming Contest

I have big news! I thought it over, and so, once I reach 15 members, I'll have a contest to see who will get their pet's (or their's, if they're an animal themselves) picture illustrated, kind of like mine! So, if you want to have a chance to win a picture of you or your pet (I can only do animals, sorry), that looks kind of like the one I did of me, get more people to join!

Illustrated Me


You like? It's me! Illustrated!! It took a while for me to master (which I highly reccomend), but I did it! How does it look? Much better than that photo, I must admit... I think it truly captures the essence of my regality. What do you think? Post a comment!

My Problems

Here is a list of my current problems:

1. Harley. The cat next door. His full name is Harley Davidson, like, the motorcycle. He think's he's all that with his cool collar, and his "natural tattoos" as my human calls them. See, she thinks he's all adorable because he has this heart on his head because he's a grey tabby, so he has black markings, and he has a black heart "tattooed" on his head. He's really plump. He is. And he is not manly -- why does he think he's alpha male? He has this really little, tiny kitten meow. So degrading. I have a nice, low, male voice, and still he thinks he can beat me. But he gets lucky in our fights. Too lucky. I wonder if he got some sort of rabbit's foot or something...?
2. Vaccums. Every pet's problem. They suck at you and are so loud! I don't care if it makes the darn floor clean - it's gonna suck the fur right offa me, someday - I swear! So loud, I can't even hear myself think. Whenever it turns on it scares me half to death!
3. Teek. My cousin. We've been watching her for about a week now, and I'm fed up with her always following me around, wanting to play, and stealing my spot on the chair. Ugh.
Problems, problems problems. Well, at least Teek will be gone soon. Now I just have to figure out a way to make Harley disappear...

My Portrait

Maybe I should call it a pawtrait... Anyways. Yes, I know - not the best pic. I'll update it later (I'm thinking of hiring a professional photographer once I figure out how to get enough money to pay them...) But it's one of me. I really need more of just me, though! I had to clip the part with my human out of it, and it doesn't look as good! :( I mean, more pics of me! Come on, people (or cats...)! I'm the inspurration, you know! (Corny, yes, but accurate)

About Me

Okay, first thing you should know, I'm a guy. I'm guessing you knew that (humans aren't all that dumb - they know when we want out and in, and when we're hungry), but in case you didn't, I'm glad you do now.
Also, I was rescued from an Animal Shelter, after being found on my own out in Western Washington sub-urb wilderness. I'd talk about my past...but I can't. Now I live in a warm, loving home (stocked with food, I might add), and I'm very happy here. There's a nice big field in the back, where I often go on my manly *puffs out chest* hunting trips! Usually it's there I catch my big ones.
I'm also around two years old, (who has time to keep track of these things?), and I love to play, and also sleep in my human's bed.
I'm an American Shorthair - white with large splotches of black/grey tabby. I have a light-pink nose, with one big marking of cranberry pink (my human says it's "adorable"), and my left ear has a pinkish splotch. My eyes are a shining emerald green - kind of like my blog - and my paw-pads are all-adored by most humans -- the coolest pads where some are pink, some are black, and some are both! I'll post a pic sometime!
I'm a sweetheart (remember that, ladies), who'll come up and snuggle you in bed, and lick your chin and nose when you're not looking. I'm very talkative - either when I'm being picked up, when I want in or out, when I want food, or just for friendly conversation.
Well, that's just about it. Except for the fact that I am in almost constant battle with the cat next door, who thinks just because he was here first, that he should be alpha male, I am the cutest, sweetest, coolest cat around. Check me out!

Grand Opening: Cat's Out of the Bag!

Hey, hey! Welcome to my space! I'm Sammy (Formally known as Samson, or otherwise, Sam-Wow), a cool cat who was taken in from the shelter! My humans are lucky they found me (and, though I hate to admit it, I'm lucky, too), cuz I'm one fantastic feline to have around!

So, welcome to my blog! And feel free to come along for the ride! (Though I hope it's no trip to the vet's...) Everyone is welcome -- except dogs... Well, my human and writer says that's okay, too, but only as long as they like cats. Of course, who wouldn't like me? Heheh.

~Sam-Wow (Put'cha Paws Up!)
