Happy New Year!
Wishing you all the best throughout 2006.
Here's a toast to friends and family - furry and those not furry - and lots of great bloggin' fun times!
Others are scared of me because of all the fun I have. Considered a vigilante by my Eponine.

Received a call today from BET telling me about a lawyer friend who has a client that is moving and must find a new home for their cat. At first I freaked at the notion. However, I left it at "I won't say no and I won't say yes."
My little monster was buried this week. After much personal debate on what to do, I finally opted for a pet memorial gardens. It is a beautiful and peaceful place. It is north of the river, about 8 miles from me. Near Parkville.
Bear was my traveling partner from Tulsa to KC this past Monday, the day after Christmas. All 8-pounds of this Yorkie were a welcomed treat on the roadtrip. He was staying with his great granny (my mother) while my niece was away to North Carolina visiting her mother (my sister) and family. Ton, the niece, found a fare about $250 cheaper roundtrip from KC to NC. Plus she got to see the Uncle (moi).
At church on Christmas morning I felt comfort. I said a prayer of thanksgiving for my little monster, her life that was shared with me, and for the companionship provided. I also prayed for peace and a soothing heart. I continue to miss her much. I also thanked God for my family, friends and all the pets and humans who have visited Epster's blog the last several days.
If you get a chance, be sure to watch The Kennedy Center Honors. The show airs Dec. 27, 2005 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. This year's honorees are Tina Turner, Robert Redford, Tony Bennett, Suzanne Farrell and Julie Harris. The show includes much fanfare and tradition, and always provides fantastic chronologies of each of the honorees about their lives/careers/influences.
Just wanting to say Merry Christmas or happy whatever you might be celebrating over the next few days.
Besides playing with feathers, eating moist food, hanging out with other furries, and many more fun things, I imagine our furry friends in heaven telling stories about how funny the two-legged ones look when they're naked. What do you think? The thought worries me a bit.
Years ago, I remember receiving one of those "forward this within 7 minutes to 10 people and you'll get a wish" e-mails that had a story about a man who had given his wife a scarf as a birthday gift. I might have the details wrong, but I recall some of this story.

Eponine is fighting her own battle. However, it is so clearly obvious her little body is shutting down. Her weight is declining and each time I pet her I am discovering this little bony body. She still provides nice and loud purrs. I've been feeding her baby food. Never thought baby food would ever enter our home! Beef was her favorite. Now, it's only a few licks. Watching her appetite vanish breaks my heart.
Was shoveling snow earlier and I came across some paw prints. The creature came from around back, across the drive, through the front yard and on through the neighborhood. I hope the cat is warm and loved.
Live in my house. I'll be your shelter. Just pay me back with one thousand kisses. Be my lover - I'll cover you.
Not even for sure what an abdominocentesis is, but I heard Cowboy on the phone telling someone it cost $45. He wasn't complaining, though. I heard him say he was going to do "whatever it takes."
Eponine received her "Secret Paws" gift Thursday. It was a nice feeling to come home and find a box sitting on the front porch addressed to my little monster. Because of her health right now she is not fully able to enjoy it all, but it did make her day!
Lots of sleeping, lots of water, some vitamins and steady eating. I'm doing my best to follow my doctor's orders. I did actually poop a little this morning. That's a good sign. We may go to the doctor to have them remove some of the fluid in my belly. They say it might make me more comfortable. I haven't regained my energy. I sit up and look around. I hear my Cowboy's voice and it makes me feel good, but it's tough to shake my tail. It still feels very good when he pets me, though. Makes me purr.
My Cowboy is making me take it easy and is not letting me blog. While he's away at work, I thought I'd shoot out this post.
Blahzay, blahzay ... that kind of describes how I feel today. Don't really know what's wrong. A little sore, not very hungry, not very energetic. I didn't even feel like eating a treat this morning. Can't seem to poop either. I'm just going to try to take it easy, I guess.
The other day, Cowboy brought home from the office luncheon almost three pieces of some type of berry pie. Raspberries, blueberries and others mixed. I don't really enjoy pie, but don't mind licking it a little. Cowboy says it was out-of-sight good and ate it all.
Today is JAG's birthday, Saturday is the day the Schramwich's will be celebrating and then Sunday my Cowboy will. Just parties and fun times galore, I'm sure!
About 6 a.m. this morning it started to snow. It's still going! I heard the weather cats saying tonight something about Gulf moisture, Jet Stream, cold temperatures, and some other things all combining to create this winter blast. It's kind of exciting. (Check out center states Doppler)
It's snowing in Kansas City. I hopped on the window sill to take a gander at all. It looks all fluffy and powdery. Very pretty, but for sure nothing I want to be hopping around in. About 4 to 6 inches are expected when all is said and done.
About 2 to 4 inches of snow is predicted, Cowboy is baking cookies for a holiday luncheon at his work, the trees are all decorated, Christmas tunes are playing, and my Christmas stocking is hanging in its rightful place. I'd say it for sure is looking alot like Christmas! And I have been such a good little monster this year. I know Santa will be rewarding me handsomely.
Are you struggling to find that perfect gift? Do you have someone in your life that absolutely has everything they need? Running up against a brick wall? I suggest thinking out of the box and getting something completely off the wall.
Megmacb is in Prague this week. Sightseeing, challenging unfriendly Czechs to take U.S. dollars, shopping, touring old places, and enjoying time away from the day-to-day stuff back in KC. She's likely eating breakfast right about now.
I guess white elephants too, if they want to join the fun! Maybe even a hippo will get involved.
