Hi, it's me Burnie.  I know it's the wrong day and I haven't written in a while, but there's a good reason.

I've been too weak to get to the computer.  I made the mistake about two months ago of sitting on the scale when mom was around.  She saw that I've gotten a little heavy.  I only weigh 20 pounds, but she thinks that's a lot.

The first thing she did was cut out our afternoon snack.  Now we only get half a can of food each.  That wasn't too bad at first because we still had our dry food.  Now I noticed that since the bowl is empty, it hasn't been refilled for a few days.  I think she's trying to starve us.

I'm so hungry that all I can do is sleep.  I don't even have the energy to play or chase Crash.

Is there someone I can report mom to for cat abuse.  Really, only 1/2 can of food.  That's not enough for a cat.  Maybe I'll go chew on a leaf from one of her plants.  That'll show her.

Missing in Paris - Part II

I've been listening to some of the comments on the TV this morning and I feel I must retract part of my statement yesterday.

It seems that I was wrong about our representation at the rally/march in Paris yesterday.  The president did not send Eric Holder to represent us yesterday.  Eric Holder just happened to be in Paris for some other reason and he made an appearance.  However, he didn't stay long; he left before the march even began.

A few days ago the president said that we stand with France, apparently he has a very short memory, or he didn't mean it.

Missing from Paris

I've just been watching the anti-terror march/rally in Paris.  What a huge amount of people, many of whom are trying to show support for the people who were murdered this past week by the muslim terrorists.

Scanning the faces in the crowd of world leaders, I recognized Angela Merkel, Francois Hollande, David Cameron and Benjamin Netanyahu.  The broadcasters mentioned the leaders of other countries like Poland, Ukraine, Palestine, Russia, NATO and the Arab League.

I looked at every face leading the march and could not find the most recognizable - the president of the United States.  For some reason, he could not find the time to attend, BUT he did send a representative - Eric Holder, the soon to be former Attorney General.

Surely, the president could have found a better representative of our country, the attorney general is the 7th in line to the presidency.  I can understand the president's not wanting our country to be represented by the Speaker of the House (John Boehner) or the President pro tempore of the Senate (Orin Hatch), both Republicans, but, I'm sure Joe Biden, our Vice President, is available.  For representation in international areas, he could have sent the Secretary of State - John Kerry, or the Secretary of Defense - Chuck Hagel (even though he's a republican).

I guess the president was too busy trying to find a warm place to play golf this weekend that he couldn't find the time to send a person to represent us who still plans to work for us.

Hi, it's me Burnie.  I hope you had a good Christmas, I know I did.  Mom's son, my brother, came all the way from Seattle for a visit.  There were lots of boxes for me to hide in.  But, the best part is that my brother brought me a present.  A while ago I mentioned how much I liked the Purrfect Arch, and he brought it here for me.  He also brought a present for Crash, something to put on the wall so she can scratch her chin.  She really likes to have her chin scratched.
After all the presents were unwrapped, we had our traditional Christmas afternoon.  Mom and my brother take the pieces of wrapping paper and throw them to (or at) me.  They don't hurt, mostly they miss.  They aren't good throwers.
Here are a couple of pictures of me enjoying my present.  I really like it.  It's just like the commercial, and it makes me purr really loud.

I really, really Christmas.  I can hardly wait for next year.

Burnie Speaks

 Crash and I have a complaint to register.  For some reason, today when we finally got a cold day, there is no heat.

Mom said that she called to have someone look at the heater, but we wouldn't know about that, she locked us up most of the day.  She even had the nerve to wake me up to put me in the other room.  She tried to redeem herself by giving us some catnip.  It helped a little.

After she got a phone call, she even turned the fireplace on, it felt so good.  She wasn't too happy after that phone call, so I guess we'll be cold for a day or too.

When you're all snug and warm in your houses tonight, please think of Cash and me. We'll probably be burrowing under the covers to keep warm.

Burnie here

 This is one of my favorite times of the year.  Winter is coming!

That's when mom takes out her furry throws.  I don't know why they're called throws, they're placed neatly on the furniture and just sit there.  No one throws them around.

She puts them on her bed and sometimes I sleep there.  It's so cozy.
There's one on a chair in the living room.  I like that one too, but I can't hide when I'm sleeping on that one because it's white and I'm black and white.

Here I am on my favorite.  You can see me here because mom used the flash when she took my picture.  Usually, you can only see the whites of my feet and face.

I really, really like these fur things because I don't have to share them.  Crash is afraid of them, she won't even walk on them.  Silly Crash.
I guess you saw some of the Christmas stuff in the pictures.  We'll talk about that another day.  Until then, it's time for my nap.  See ya.
