Raise a paw! .... Higher!!

By Bogdan, Sara and Kat3
Morning Scratch staff

We cats at The Morning Scratch are raising our paws in Gaius' cause contest for the North County Humane Society of San Luis Obispo County. They have nice humans there, and they run a cat-only shelter. Our human likes that because she thinks barking dogs are very disruptive to cats' well-being. (We agree.) Our human also just finished designing her first newsletter for the society. She likes to help other kitties, and so do we ... so we're raising our paws high!

Dear Dr. Kat: I squirt poo

By Kat 3
Morning Scratch reporter
Hmmmm. What's wrong with a little squirt?

In the past few days, when I'm purring and being petted and scratched ... sometimes I squirt a little poo. It's not much, but enough to make my humans go "ewwwwww." This hasn't been a problem before.

My dad is very concerned this could be the beginning of me squirting poo everywhere! Teehee. I don't think so... but I don't understand why this squirty-squirt is happening.

Anyone have any ideas why?

I also posted this to Catster Forums, if you want to respond there:

Ana's last IDYA ... IDYA No. 3: DUYS (Dress Up Your Staff)

By Bogdan
Morning Scratch editor

Unfortunately, I couldn't catch The Man to take part in Ana's last I Dare You All. And the Investor said she wouldn't do it if The Man wouldn't do it... so I had to resort to Photoshop. If only I were bigger and could hold The Man down like he did to get the chicken head on me!

Here are my staffers "dressed up."

The original photo was taken in Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve near Guerneville, CA. (Sorta near Kimo and Sabi's house.)

Our friend Milo

By Morning Scratch staff

We just found out through Honey P. Sunshine's blog that our friend Milo has died. We are very sad. He was only 4 years old.

By Bogdan, the editor
Milo was a big inspiration for me. Years ago, before I used the Internet frequently, I discovered Milo's page on Catster. The following are some things I remember about Milo from way back in the day, years ago when I first met him.
Thinking about my friend Milo, who is no longer with us.

Milo was:
• The very first cat I corralled on Catster. I was very impressed with his page. Truthfully, I wanted to be like him.
• One of my first friends on Catster. He welcomed me and my sisters to the Internet world.
• How I persuaded the Investor to sign me up and devote time to my Catster page. She was equally as impressed with Milo's page, and she supported my efforts to be as cool as Milo.
• A big supporter of my Catster page. When I thought I wasn't doing a good job, he told me I was doing great!

Milo, you will be greatly missed. Purrs to your family through this difficult time.

This just in: "Monty Q Kat's 'So Kyoot It's Scary' award goes to Bogdan!"

I won! I thought I didn't win in any categories, but, according to contest prize sponsor Monty Q. Kat,
the 'So Kyoot It's Scary' category was recently announced, with Bogdan, me, the editor, the winner. My investor is pleased. Thanks, Monty Q! We look forward to the prize, a sock kitty. (My investor is pleased about this, too. In fact, she's downright giddy.)

Not-so-scary Halloween photos

By Bogdan
Morning Scratch editor

Apparently a particular photo from my Halloween photo shoot was met with snorts and laughs. Thank you, Skeezix, for including me in your post-Halloween post, though I did not win a prize in the contest. I thought that because I could not incite fear (which was my original intention with giving that look), I could at least post more photos from the Halloween shoot - from all of us - that might make you all to howl meow with laughter.
Here are the outtakes.
