WooHoo It’s October 1st. You know what dat means? Dat means it’s 31 days till meez 6ff Meowday/Birffday. Fur those of ya’ dat haven’t been followin’ us dat long may be wunnerin’ why dat be such a big deal. Well let me tell ya’. Mommy’s had lots of kitties in hers life. She was a foster mommy fur a long time and specialized in kittens wiffout mommies. And all da spoiled little furries got pawsum homes. Mommy was only a foster failure twice. Da furst time wiff Lexi’s bwofur Lucky, and then wiff sis Lexi. A lot of yous have read da stowries of Shad, mommmy’s furst Service kitty. And yous read ‘bout Devon, Lucky and Ransom. They wasn’t da only kitties mommy’s ever had, but they all have one unfurtunate fing in common. They all died at da age of 5 years old. There was udder kitties afur them, and da same fing happened to them. They all died of diffewent fings, but da fact is they died at 5. So mommy gets a bit panicky when a kitty turns 5 years old. And to tell da twuff she’s been a bit pesky this whole year. Pokin’ and pwoddin’ me, checkin’ me over everyday. Sumtimes me settles into hers lap fur sum sweet mommy luvvin’ and afur ya’ know it meez getting’ an examination. MOL
Sis Lexi be da furst kitty in mommy’s life to ever live past da age of 5. So me guesses it makes since fur her to be a little pawanoid, but meez here to purrove dat sis Lexi ain’t da only one who’s gunna pass 5. Cuz in just 31 short days on November 1, me will be 6. And mommy can quit pokin’ and pwoddin’ me all over cuz me be a healffy little girly. Now we celebwate birffdays all mumff long, so weez in fur a gweat November. Me will be remindin’ ya’ off and on all mumff long, so yous can come to meez pawrty. It’s gunna be a doozy fur sure. Anyways, enuff ‘bout meez birffday fur now.

Thank you Dezi. We did have a lot of fun. But you’re here to hear about the visit. We have lots of covered bridges in Ashtabula County. My mom and dad took Dezi, Christy, Meiko and Pete to see a covered bridge. This is my mom and dad’s favorite covered bridge because it has a nice park. It was really cool. The bridge goes over the Grand River. It is a one lane bridge and the wood makes a lot of noise when a car drives over it. It is a little bit scary. There is a walkway on the side of the bridge and people walk on it and fish from it. My mom took pictures of my dad showing our visiting Flat Cats the entrance to the covered bridge. Then mom took the cats for a walk on the walkway. Mom held them up and hung on to them so they could look down on the Grand River. They saw a few fish jumping but mom would not let any cat jump over the side to get the fishes.
Lookit dat bootyful water and all this “litter”. Not much purrivacy, but it sure is purretty.
The next day the cats went for a bicycle ride. My mom took Dezi and Christy for a ride and then she took Pete and Meiko. Mom and dad live on a busy road so mom always walks her bike down the road to a nice quiet side street. The Flats had a nice ride down the street. Everybody had a good time. Mom posed for a picture in the back yard with the Flat Cats. Mom Judy thinks she looks like a giant ladybug with her orange bicycle helmet.
Mom went to see Grandma Doris and the Flat Cats got to go along. On the way to see Grandma Doris they got to stop at the lake again. This time they got to play in the sand. Grandma Doris loves cats and she loved seeing all of the flats. They sat on Grandma Doris’ lap and had a nice conversation with her. Uncle Frank (mom Judy’s brother) came over after work and he brought dinner. They had chick hen and all of the fixins. It was really good. He also brought some wonderful pumpkin muffins. They were made at the in store bakery where he works. All of the flats enjoyed meeting mom Judys mother and brother. After dinner they said goodbye and came home.
Me luvved meetin’ Andy’s gwammaw Doris.
The next day mom Judy put Dezi and Christy in an envelope and sent them on another adventure. They are going to see Timmy Tomcat his brother Einstein and all their fursibs. We were sad to see them go.

Well we opened our puter on Wednesday and stawrted visitin’ as usual and made our furst comment and got a message dat sed “no innernet connection”. Mommy looked down in da corner at our little innernet icon and sure nuff, no connection. And then just as suddenly as it went off, it was back on. We made our comment and went to da next bloggy. And again we had no innernet connection and then we did. A few more times of dat and mommy was fed up. So she called At&t. Sissy and me knew it wasn’t gunna be a good day cuz weez not fink even da manager can furustwate mommy as bad as At&t. Da automated system checked our line and immediately twansfurred mommy to a live purrson. Dat don’t happen offen, so maybe it wasn’t gunna be such a bad day after all. MOL Mommy’s amazement didn’t last long cuz da “live purrson” sed a tech was gunna have to come out and fix it. So mommy sed “Let’s do this ASAP,” and we got on da schedule fur Fursday. Mommy asked when on Fursday and da opurrator sed, “A tech will be by Thursday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.. An adult must be purresent and it will take 2-4 hours.” Is it any wunder why nopawdy likes At&t? As you can tell, our innernet is fixed and weez back. So today meez gunna tell ya’ ‘bout da visit we had wiff meez sweet mancats’ flat duwin’ hims visit. And don’t furget to tune in fur pawrt 2 of meez flat visit at hims house on Caturday.
So while meez flat scout Izzy was in Ohio visitin’ wiff Andy, hims flat was here at meez house visitin’. When hims furst awwived me was so ‘cited mommy kuldn’t even get any fotos, cuz me kept rubbin’ up against him. Finally mommy suggested we hang on da Liberty twee fur a while and let Andy rest up after hims long twip. Fank catness da sun was shinin’ dat day and we enjoyed watchin’ da birdy’s and squirrels.
After dinner sissy and Andy sat down to have a little chat. Yous know meez sissy be a gweat judge of character and me weally wanted hers to like Andy. She filled hims in on da sleepin’ awwangements and dat hims kuld sleep in da bed wiff all of us but hims wuld be at da udder end of da bed fwum me. Me just knew dat was okay wiff Andy cuz hims so wespectful and gentlemanly.
Da next day we went fur a pawsum stwoll.. Andy liked da stwoller so much dat when we got back inside we took a nap in it. It’s weally comfurrtable cuz it has a fleece blanky acwoss da bottom. We played and hung out on da cat twee a lot. Hims even got to sit on da scwatcher lounger a while. Me didn’t want hims to ever leave cuz we was havin’ so much fun.
Sissy ‘cided to give her appwoval and rubbed him wiff hers chin and cheeks. Me just knew sissy was gunna like him. Me was weally sad to see hims go, but we will meet up duwin’ da holidays at da Den Masters House when all da flat scouts awe getting’ togevver. Dat’s gunna be gweat fun. So we sed our goodbyes and sent Andy on hims way. Hims was a pawsum guest and welkum back anytime. All da scouts who have visited have been just pawsum. Me can’t wait fur da next flat scout to visit.

Here we awe wiff anudder epawsode of da adventures of Izzy and Tristy (aka: Flat Scout Dezi and Flat Scout Christy Paws). When last you caught up wiff our little flat lionesses Christy told da stowry of their twavels to Canada to visit Shoko and Kali where they had a blast. Click on da names in red above ifin yous missed those stories. Anyways, da girls had a gweat time and sed their goodbyes and headed off fur da states again to visit meez wunnewful, handsum mancat Andy in Ohio. Now me knows yous gunna wanna hear all ‘bout dat visit, so be here next Caturday. And weez even got a surpwise fur ya’ dat weez’ll tell ya’ ‘bout then. Be sure and mawk yous calendars. So today meez gunna tell ya’ all ‘bout da adventurwous journey Izzy and Tristy had getting’ to Andy’s house.
We sed our goodbyes to Shoko and Kali and all da udder flats dat was visitin’. Shoko’s mommy had been so pawsum and fixed us up sum lunches and snacks fur our twip. We had taken da twain and da bus on our way, but we had weally wanted to see sum of Canada so we ‘cided take our time and camp out a few nights. Me used to go horseback ridin’ wiff mommy and Christy has a horse so we rented a couple horses and a pack mule and headed off to see a little of Canada on our way back to da States. We left wound noon on Caturday afur last and rode till it stawrted getting’ dawrk. We found a nice quiet awea by a stweam to make camp fur da night. We watered da horses and mule and unpacked da tent we had rented as well. We was very furtunate to find a rancher willin’ to come to da border and pick up hims horses afur we cwossed over. Tristy pitched da tent as me gathered wood and made da fire.
Finally our tent pitched, our horses and mule hitched Tristy and me settled in to check out da pawsum meal awnty Jean had sent wiff us and talk ‘bout all we had seen dat day. We had a meal fit fur queens, rather lionesses; and regaled da booty of Canada. There was so many twees and gweenery. And we had seen lots of birds and wabbits along da way. Da peeps we encountered when we went fwu towns was so nice. We took a bweak in a little town earlier to water da horses and met up wiff sum weally furiendly kitties.
Tristy: They were real nice Izzy. You know lots of Canadian cats spend time outside as well as in. We saw that while staying with Shoko too. I don’t know that I would want mom to shut me outside. I like to be the house with all my toys and trees and family too much.
Izzy: Yeah Tristy they was weally cool and all but it’s just too dangerwous fur us to be outside like dat. They seemed to enjoy eatin’ stwange noms at differwent houses, but me likes to know where mommy is when me eats. And you know wiff all meez fur it gets kinda hot outside. Me wuld miss da a/c too much. It sure was nice of awnty Jean to send us wiff these pawsum noms fur tonight. What do you fink we oughtta hunt fur tomowwos meal?
Tristy: It was Izzy. I was kind of thinking we might have to have a couple of Canadian rabbits before we leave. What do you think?
Izzy: Me finks dat’s a gweat idea Tristy. There sure seems to be purrlenty wound here. Guess we oughtta turn in fur da night so we can get an early stawrt tomowwo.
We boff sed goodnight and crawled in da tent and fell fast asleep. Me dweamed of ketchin’ wabbits and of seein’ meez handsum Andy. Da next meownin’ we boff rose early and bein’ da good scouts we awe, we put out our fire and cleaned up da campsite so yous kuldn’t even tell we had been there. ‘Cept fur dat one spot. We kuldn’t wesist and had cawrved our names into one of da twees. Me sure hopes Den Master dusn’t give us a demotion fur dat, we just kuldn’t help ourselves. We pasked up and headed off. This wuld be our last day and night in da wilds of Canada.
We twaveled most of da day enjoyin’ our time in Canada. But as night approached we stawrted lookin’ fur a place to camp and keepin’ our eyes out fur those wascally wabbits. We finally came upon a small clearin’ wiff a nice little waterin’ hole and ‘cided to make camp there fur da night. We got set up and then went on da prowl fur dinner. We cwouched low to da gwound and caught wind of a wabbit by da waterin’ hole. We worked togevver like a kupple of weal lionesses wuld. We inched closer and closer and then spwang and took down a kupple wabbits in one pounce. We carried them back to our camp and cleaned ‘em up and hung ‘em on da spit. We put da hide and fur in our saddle bags fur a later purroject. As we ate da fwuits (wabbits) of our furst hunt togevver we chatted ‘bout da fun we had and how we kuldn’t wait to get acwoss da border and on to Andy’s house da next day. This wuld be one of their longest twips since most of da scouts live in da states.
Da next meownin’ da two little lionesses awoke early and cleaned up their campsite and headed off to meet wiff da nice rancher who wuld be takin’ da horses and mule back. Fwum there they caught a ride wiff a nice twucker and hims doggy on into Ohio. Da twucker was so nice he even dwove them wight up to Andy’s house. As Izzy and Tristy waved goodbye da ‘citement began to overtake Izzy. In a few short minutes she was gunna be starin’ at sweet Andy in da fur. Da girls stood at da door and looked at each udder afur knockin’. They wunnerwed just what adventures awaited them beyond da door. Finally Izzy reached her paw up and knocked, and…………………………..Join us every week fur da continuin’ saga of our little flat Lionesses on da Prowl.
