Merry Crispmouse!! - Rumbles

I LOVE Crispmouse!! I get gifts and noms and spend the day with the Rumbleparents!! This is Diego's first Crispmouse, and he's excited because he heard that the Rumble-in-laws are giving us a ham bag!

He assumes that means that he can get into the bag with the ham. I am much more realistic and know that the good noms are the turkey noms!

We were both really lucky this year - we got a gift from one of our secret santas - my sweet pal Boris sent us this wonderful BOX of goodies!!

So many goodies!!
Ooo you look like fun!

I really DIG these toys... get it? Dig? heh heh heh

Oh little orange ball of nip, I nom you!

And sniff you!

Then I nom you some more!

I'll let you rest for now, but I'll be back to nom you more later!
Boris even sent some things for Rumblemum! He got her some LOL cat magnets (which she LOVES!!) and some hand wash stuff for after she cleans out our little box. Later we'll get to play with the new Da Bird, for now we rest up and hope you're all having a wonderful Crispmouse.

Dear Santa - Diego

I have been SUPER good this year. I love my brother SO much and I copy EVERYTHING he does, so that must mean I'm good!!

I'm even keeping my tiny toes clean, see what a good boy I am?

Where's my cake?

I'm hanging out on my mighty RUMBLEtower, waiting for my tuna cake.

Now I'm expecting some BOOTIFUL ladycats to jump out of my tuna cake, so I won't go nomming on it too quickly. After all, I'm a mature three-year-old now. I have to show decorum.

Moon-bloggie - Diego Moonfur

HELLO my friends!! Rumbles has let me blog again!!

I keep growing, Rumbleparents cannot believe what a big boy I am already, and I'm not yet one!!

Rumblemummy calls me her little Butterball. I like butter, but I've never seen it in a ball? She says Butterball is her favorite type of bird from back home, but I don't think I'm a bird?

Humans are weird. I'm glad I have Rumbles.

Birds and other things that will be mine when I rule the world - Rumblepurr

The other day that Ham and I were out on the deck in our Kritter Kondo. Imagine my shock when a little bird FLEW OVER MY HEAD and into the apartment!!

I tried to lunge thru the Kondo, but it would not yield *pout*

Hamlet just STOOD there with wide kitten eyes. He's not as sophisticated as I am, but I'm trying to teach him.

I'm resting for the next birdie
Is the birdie here yet? No?

Thank heavens, we're back

Google has very kindly restored our blog, gmail and google+ accounts. I'm hoping they won't disable us again, but to ensure I don't lose any of my precious posts (especially the ones about sweet Inigo) I'm going to back up my blog, then move it to Wordpress.

Thank to everyone that's given your support, and I would suggest to all of you that you back up  your blogs, just in case the worst happens to you as well.

I keep telling Rumblemum that the REAL moral of the story is that Ham BROKE the blog... she still seems to like him tho *pout*

Edit to add: the wonderful and bootiful ladies at Zoolantry have posted an excellent step-by-step way of backing up your blog. I can't stress enough how important this is, having learned the hard way.

Thanks again to everyone for being so supportive, I have RUMBLEcuddles for you all. Hamlet is not allowed to cuddle for a full week for breaking our blog *glaring at Ham*

Welcome to Ham Towers - Diego Hamlet Moonfur

Ha-HA! I rule this tower. I shall call it HAM TOWERS and it'll be part of the HAM ESTATE and there'll be lots of noms and lovely ladycats....

Gladiators - Rumbles and Ham

Rumblemum has been watching a lot of 'Spartacus' lately, and it's got us thinking like mighty gladiators.

I am very god-like on my tower! Who needs an arena?

Behold! Young Ham-icus approaches!

Taste my paw, Ham-icus

On and on the battle waged...

And brave Rumbles Maximus held
fast to the tower
 Till at last he was victorious!

Gentle Sunday - Rumbles

Here I am, on my most beloved tower. My sweet pal @blindmaximus sent me and the Ham this excellent toy, and I try my best to keep it from getting taken over by that kitten.

I have a dream...of a world with less kitten Ham and
more HAM ham!
 Rumbleparents keep saying that I'm too big for my tower, but they is WRONG.

I am the king. Yes, I am. - Diego

Rumbles says this is HIS blog, but I think it should be mine at least some of the time.

I'm growing up to be a BIG boy, but Rumblemum says I'm still her kitten. You can see in this photo that I'm a BIG MAN-KING cat!

You KNOW you want somea this
I'm losing some of my winter puff-coat, Rumblemum says she wears most of it to work every day (I say it's good, keeps her thinking of me!)

 We're very sorry that Rumblemum hasn't been consistant with our blogging, she's been very, very busy with work and quite stressed out. Hopefully all the busy will die down soon and go back to normal! We give her extra snuggles to help relax her... wait till she gets our bill for the 'rumble-therapy'! heh heh heh... we charge her in tunas and ham.

Chillin' on a Sunday, but NOT cuddling - Rumbles and the Ham

You see we do get close, but NOT cuddle-close (at least not for photos!)


Why is there a straw on the floor you ask? Cause it's an AWESOME TOY!!

You are POWERLESS at our full faced cute!!

Tail of a naughty cat (and it's not who you'd expect) - the Rumblemum

A particular Maine Coon managed to dip his tail in some olive oil this morning! It was cold oil, sitting in a pan on the kitchen bench...

I think he took to heart all the times I've said "You're so squeaky, I think you need Maine Coon oil!"

He now has a very flat tail and the floors are like a skating rink!

The many faces of Diego the ham - Rumblepurr

Rumblemum wanted me to say a few things about Diego (note: she did not say they had to be NICE things... heh heh heh) So here I give you the many faces of his royal Ham-iness.

You can see quite clearly in this photo that Hamlet is
very much to the left of centre

Rumblemum thinks it's "so cute" that he goes a bit
cross-eyed when he concentrates too much

This is the expression that gets him ham *grumble*

He's trying to look innocent here, and you can see that
even the camera doesn't buy his innocent act - it's gone
blurry to protest!

And this is the REAL Diego - mad, mad, MAD as a hatter!

Life is better when you're in a tent - Rumblepurr

Please note: no kittens bugging me in this photo.

*whispers* kitten... where are you? come play!

MY blog - Rumblepurr

Never forget, little Ham... this is MY blog. I just share it sometimes.

More proof that Diego the Ham is weird - Rumbles

Note the lean? The odd and gruff expression? See what I have to live with!?!

I've had inadequate ham, causes me to lean.

I think he's looking more and more like his (also leaning) daddy:

For most of you today is 'Livestrong day'. I know we're both purring SUPER loud for Miss Paula, the Trufflemummy.

Many thanks to Milo and Alfie, and to Zoolantry for all their hard work bringing together the CB for this event!

Once upon a time... - Rumblepurr

Once upon a time, there was a Rumbledad.

This Rumbledad had never had a pussycat of his own. He was persuaded by the wise and wonderful Rumblemum that everything is better with a pussycat (and twice as good with two!) and so they decided to start the Rumblefamily.

Now having never had a pussycat before, Rumbledad had many goofy and irrational rules. One of these crazy rules was that there would be 'NO CATS ON THE COUNTERTOPS!!' Rumblemum heard this and laughed quietly to herself.

Time passed, and Rumbledad saw how cute pussycats were on the countertops. He decided to amend the rule to be 'Cats can ONLY be on the UPPER countertops, where there is no food preperation'. Rumblemum chuckled, but said nothing.

Then one day Rumblemum put a bag on the lower countertop. Imagine her surprise when Rumbledad SCOLDED her for putting a bag on the pussycat's spot! (which was actually the main food preparation area...)

The moral of this story? Cats will ALWAYS win (and the lesson is that nobody should listen to Rumbledad)

Yeahhhh... MY spot....

Pip could use your comforting purrs and woofs...

Our sweet friend Pip has had a devastating few days.  Buddy, the feral cat that they were trying to socialise passed away. Then Sweet Pea, their 20 year-old boy passed away from carcinoma of the mouth that spread to his bones.

Pip has been such a good friend to us, particularly when we lost Inigo last year. His kind words and support really helped us in the darker days and we're so very sorry that he and his family have suffered these losses.

Please, if you wouldn't mind, stop by Pip's blog and spare him some kind words.

I'm outa here!!

Once again, we thwart the Rumblemum's attempts to capture us cuddling... mew ha ha ha!

My sweet and bootiful pal the Admiral is having some health issues - if you could stop by and give her mummy some virtual cuddles I think she could use them.

Check out the paw cross!

(Note from Rumblemum: this is actually how Rumbles sits on the sofa.)
