Nosey Rosie’s Gabfest


Hi everyone! Thank you for the Blogoversary wishes yesterday. Today is actually the big day- 9 years of blogging. To see the first post, click here.

Back is 2015, there were 15 cats here, sadly, only 2 of them are still here. Penny and Joanie are part of the original crew.  The others are all angels now- Lucy, Stinky, Spooky, Snowball ,Phoebe, Tallulah, Noel, KaTwo, Prancie, Millie, Polar Bear,Jinx,  Sammy .  Emmy and Drake also joined the crew as older kitties and already left us.

Now there is me, Joanie, Friday, Penny, Elvira, Trouble, Lucy (2), Ethel, Bridget, Brody, Tuffy, Rudy and Rusty. That is the order of how I like them from best to worst, as you can see , the boys annoy me- they always chase me.

I am trying to be a good reporter, but I don’t know if I will ever be as great as my idol, Dori. She does something called Breaking News and she even talks. If you haven’t seen her yet, click here. I wish I could learn how to speak human. Dori even has a naughty brother named  A**rabbit. I have two brothers that should have that name too. Speaking of them, Rusty is such a trash picker. My folks had to put the bathroom waste basket in the bathroom closet and every time Rusty hears that door open, he comes running and sticks his head right in to look for q-tips. I don’t mind batting one around from time to time, but he likes to eat the ends- ick!

Mom has been annoyed that Dad hasn’t mowed the lawn yet, but my friends at Adventures in Cheeseland saved the day. They wrote about something called No Mow May to help feed the bees. To read about it, click here.

Poor Tuffy had a rough night on Saturday. He sits on the couch when mom is on it, and she couldn’t resist. She wanted to pet him, so she tossed a blanket over him and tried- boy, did he freak out. He hid for a whole hour. Mom is lucky that he is treat motivated, so he forgave her.

I know mom told you I was going to have juicy bits on my siblings, but I think they would get mad if I dirtied their fur with juicy bits and if I find some juicy bits, I plan to eat them up.

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop

See you next week.




  1. Rusty needs you girlcats to have a serious talk or two with him about his manners!

    1. It won’t work. Mom says if he was a kid, she would put him on Ritalin. :)XO

  2. I think I missed sending congrats to your crew on the Blogoversary ! And many more !

    1. Thank you for the Blogoversary wishes. ANd thank you for following for so long. XO

  3. Happy Blogoversary!!
    Its pawsome that your Mom sticks with it so long. We also started in 2014, but the blog we have now, got changed in 2016 to the current combined one. Two was a bit much! (We had cat and doggy blogs)
    Now I have a good excuse not to mow our lawn this week, LOL!!
    Our doggy cousin used to raid the waste basket, too…for the tissues, LOL!

    When petcretary tried to rush our first kitty into having cuddles he also freaked out and peed all over her, YUCK!! Later he allowed it on his own terms….

    1. Thank you for the Blogoversary wishes. I am glad your petcretary has stuck with it too. Friday likes to free the tissues from the box. 🙂 XO

  4. Oh, how glad we all are that your blog began, Rosie, and oh, those sweet angel kitties with such beautiful names….sigh. As for juicy bits, keep them ALL to yourself, for all the work you do keeping the peace!

  5. Happy blogoversary! Ivor has an obsession with mowing the lawn and does it every few days. We have lots of flowers for the bees though.

    1. Thank you for the Blogoversary wishes. You are lucky Ivor has that obsession. XO

  6. Well now – I believe you gave us a lot of juicy bits Rosie! I’m thinking your Mom feels like the time has just flown by since she started her blog about her wonderful cat family AND her own adventures. We are avid followers (Mom’s words because I don’t know what an “avid” is!). We love all the updates and my Mom and Dad are looking forward to seeing your Mom and Dad in a few months!!!

    Big Hugs, Teddy

    1. Thank you for the Blogoversary wishes. And for being with us since the beginning. My folks can’t wait to see your folks too. XO

  7. Someone has to tell the household gossip right? I believe it’s called controlling the narrative. I take the role in my house! My Mom says that she didn’t realize you started blogging at the same time as we did! It took us awhile to find our people online, but we started in 2015 too. Happy blogoversary!

  8. Dear Joanie, I think you have done a wonderful news story this morning there’s all kinds of bits and pieces of info. What a houseful your mommy has now with 12 kitties. You’re doing a fine job in the next time you report Precious would like to hear about Brody.

    1. 13 counting me Rosie. She will try to get a purrsonal interview with Brody. XO

  9. Happy blog-a-versary! I think you make the world a better place!!! I also think your knit cat toys are a hit …. We had one in the bed with us last night!! Hope there are MANY more blogging years to go!!

    1. Thank you for the Blogoversary wishes. You are too kind- you also make the world a better place. I am glad your kitties like the toys enough to take one to bed. 🙂 XO

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. Scritches all around and a hug to mom. XO ♥

  14. First, happy blogoversary! We know we’re not alone when we say that we’re so glad you started this blog.

    Rosie, we happen to think you’re a purrfect reporter! We really enjoyed these updates, all the way to Rusty eating the ends of q-tips. At our house, Winky is the q-tip thief. She’s addicted to ear wax. Her sister Tonks thinks that’s disgusting. Purrs to all of you!

    1. Thank you for the Blogoversary wishes. Good to know there are other ear wax lovers. 🙂 XO

  15. Happy Happy #9 Bloggieversary Meowing Crew and Ellen! So happy I found the Meowing Crew! May you keep on blogging and sharing and Gabfesting! Rosie you had plenty to say. It was good to get a refresher about the Meowing Crew. It is sad to see how many sweet cats have gone over the Rainbow but they were loved by lots of us peeps. Thanks Rosie for keeping it straight and I really enjoyed your current list of best to worst. I hope you do get some tasty treats! Rusty it a little hooligan!

    1. Thank you for the Blogoversary wishes. And thank you for being a faithful follower. Rusty is definitely a hooligan. 🙂 XO

  16. Chaplin: “You can find good things in the trash sometimes, especially the kitchen trash. I recommended conserving your energy to stage raids on that one, Rusty. I mean, I can see where chewing on a Q-Tip might be fun, but stealing food that the humans were just going to throw away is like performing an ecological service.”
    Lulu: “Right. You’re concerned with the health of the planet.”
    Chaplin: “You know it!”
    Charlee: “You sure do have a lot of angels there, and I know you must miss every single one. We sure do miss our angels here!”

    1. Rusty is all for that. He is not allowed in the kitchen, but he sneaks in and goes right for the trash.

  17. Lots of news, we took a while to mow as well – but we blamed it on the weather.

  18. The problem with no-mow-May is neighbors and city-parish ordinances. People don’t care about the bees, just home values.

    Congratulations on the blog anniversary, I wish you many happy returns of the day!

  19. Happy 9th Bloggie-versary Aunty Ellen! HURRAH Penny an Joanie beein from original Crew there!

    1. Thank you for the Blogoversary wishes. That doesn’t work, it seems to make them more interested in me. He scratched a little in panic with the blanket, but would never intentionally harm me. We all love you too. XO

        1. Yes, they are. The only man cat I understood was my Sammy. He was my soulmate. XO

  20. Happy Blogaversary to you and the whole crew, Rosie. That’s a lot of blogging.

    We heard about the No Mow May too, but it sounded like some cities were just trying to save money and not cut the public grass areas:)

    Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  21. That’s so much loss in such a short period of time 🙁 Dori is adorable. I had to mow earlier than ever this year. We got a lot of rain and the grass shot right up. Happy Blogoversary!!!

    1. It is a lot of loss. We agree about Dori. Thank you for the Blogoversary wishes. XO

  22. Happy Happy Blogoversary! I don’t seem to be able to locate the post where you just blogged about it (you said “yesterday” but I didn’t see anything). Wishing you many more happy blogging years!! xoxo

    1. It should have been there. Thank you for the blogoversary wishes. XO

  23. Happy Blogoversary! (Sorry we’re late; Mom’s been really slow lately.) We’re really glad your Mom has been able to help so many kitties. Thanks for the mention. Purrs, Snoops and Kommando Kitty

    1. Thank you. 🙂 And thanks for telling us about No Mow May. I did tell my hubby today that it is close enough to June that he can mow. 🙂 XO
