November.

I lead a fairly straight forward existence and somedays I really don't do anything other than eat/sleep/use the box and today is one of them. So instead of telling you my fairly boring digging in the litter box tales I figured I'd share a picture of New Jersey with you.

Most humans think New Jersey is a worthless state, the "armpit" of the nation. Sure we're tucked between NYC and Philadelphia but we have our own charms. We have the Pine Barrens which I'll admit are dull as they are filled with scrub-brush pines and sand. But there are also cedar trees that make the creeks brown. This is in fact "Cedar Creek" located at the Whitesbog Cranberry Bog. While Ocean Spray would like you to think your Cranberries all come from Massachusetts most in fact come from New Jersey. The cranberry bogs are tucked into the pines where you would least expect them.

New Jersey is our home and we love it. Sure its not New England with the mountains, Florida with palm trees and lizards, but New Jersey isn't as bad as some make it out to be.

And New Jersey has the best blueberries in Mom's opinion!

Thank you, Chase, for the Catster Rosette! You are such a wonderful man cat to honor me that way! And I received honorable mention in the Spicy Vixen category of the Halloween Costume Contest--probably no doubt due to your influence. Many thanks!

Your charmer,

My human would argue about the blueberries, having their own local Washington ones.

However, we want to ask about the Pine Barrens. We read a book that had a horror story that took place there. Is it really a scary out of the way place?

Other famous New Jersey things--doesn't Stephanie Plum live there? And Ranger?

I do not think NJ is a bad place to live. That is a beautiful photo, and everything I have seen of your hometown makes it seem like a very special place.

ps: lets hear some digging in the litter box tales!

Wait a minute, Chase! Ocean Spray gets all their cranberries from Wisconsin. It's huge here, mid-state. What do you mean, Massachusetts! I've seen the TV ads. They're HERE, I tell you!
::Grumble grumble::
Sorry, love. I'm sure Mew Jersey is called the Garden State for good reason. Your picture is lovely and my beans liked the view from their train thru NJ. No hard feelings? Purrs!

We think it looks purty darn lovely! We don't have the lizards either, and I have been trying to get Daisy to send me one. Momma is worried about the lumpy.

When Mommy & Daddy crossed from New York they thought it smelled like cat pee. Maybe that was NY's fault? Heh, sorry Jeter. Kearney has really good pizza and they thought Red Bank was very pretty.
