Freak-Out Friday!


Kimo: Holy Cannoli! (whutever that means) Yesterday we learned that a lady in Petaluma (our town) won da California state lottery of 80+Squillion Dollars! We thought . . . could it be . . .

Sabi: Now, you gots to unnerstand . . . our beans is not gamblers . . . but Mommakitty, who hadn't bought a lotto ticket in over 5 years, decided to git one on Wednesday.

Kimo: So, of course, our first thought wuz . . . WE IS SQUILLIONNAIRES!

Sabi: We didn't hear da news 'till Thurday that da winner wuz even in our city - so, we bugged Mommakitty to check her numbers. Da TV news beans even said da winning ticket wuz from da store where our beans buys our groceries!

Kimo: Alas . . . Mommakitty did not win. Some lady who has NEVER played da lotto in her entire life (so she says) wuz da big freekin' winner.

Sabi: Can you imgine whut we could have bought wif that kinda green papers? That lady probably doesn't even have any cats to share da winnings wif. Whut a tragedy.

Kimo: I would have flown all da cat bloggers out to California to celebrate - there would have even been enough green papers to send their beans too! 

Sabi: Wowy - I can't even imagine whut I would have bought . . . makes my head spin.


Kimo: That's da nip you just inhaled. 

P.S. - Mommakitty says "Thanks" fer all da nice compliments about her art.

Wow, for a second there I thought maybe you won....! Would have been nice, huh.
Kimo and Sabi have the most wonderful expressive faces and postures, and you capture it so well on camera.
Loved the art work yesterday, too, with the wonderful kitties.

You have very good luck and great minds, that is the most riches thing in the world!

Camie's Kitties said...

We didn't win either. Of course, Mom would have to actually buy a ticket to have any hope of winning at all - mol.

Poppy Q said...

Then I would world tour to all my cat blogger friends.

I guess we has to keep dreaming huh?

Eric and Flynn said...

Man, I thought you were squillionaires for a second...

Maybe your Mombean can sell her art on the internets make a squillion dollars that way!

The Meezers said...

wow. that would haf been so cool if you hadded been squillionnairres! oh well, maybe next time

Captain Jack and Sir Dante said...

How dissapointing! We went through the same thing when someone in our state won $270 million squillion dollars but alas, it was not our beans.

Jimmy Joe said...

That would have been very exciting! But Beans seem to get really preoccupied when they have lots of money to spend, so maybe it
s better that Mommakitty didn't win--she can concentrate on you and Kiera.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe
P.S. Great pictures of you two, buddies!

Tybalt said...

I am upset that Mommakitty didn't win. I can't think of any other bean more worthy of winning . . . unless it is daddykitty. But hey, mommy tells us all the time we should try to win, but never buys a ticket. Can you imagine what it would be like to have all that money?! Think of all the fun things we could do, and all the kitties we could help . . . *sigh* I'm feeling your pain, fellas.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

That would have been terribly exciting for you to win.

Daisy said...

WHOA! That's a lotta green papers. Too bad it was not your winning ticket. That sure would have been exciting!

Queen Snickers and Empress said...

To bad! That would have been fun coming to visit! And seeing the baby bean! ~Queen Snickers

Sunny's Mommy said...

I hear cannolis are supposed to be good, but I don't eat them.

That's too bad your Mommakitty didn't win. Maybe next time. But as they tell us on the TV all the time, you gotta play to win. So tell Mommakitty to keep buying tickets.

PB & J said...

Wow that would have been a lot of green papers!

The Fluffy Tribe said...

oh boy, so close, yet so far ~The Fluffy Tribe

Junior said...

Bummer!! That would have been so nice if your Mommakitty would have won! maybe the lady that did win will take in some kittys who need a home.

Lux said...

Love that picture! :)

Wow, for a bit I thought you were the big winners, too! (But then you already are winners!)

Fat Eric said...

Woah, 80 squillion dollars is a lot of money! That's like 40 squillion pounds in my money!

By the way I just saw your mum's art, it is great! We like the second one best because he is ginger.

The Devil Dog said...

Wow, that would have been fun. Mom knows what she would do with it. There would be a lot of fun going on here.

Derby said...

Wowweee, that would have been exciting! Think of all the kitties you could support as foster kitties.

Sabrina, Sam and Simon said...

Kimo, it would have been fun to come out to see you and Sabi, and we would have appreciated Mommakitty showing us the store that they had the doppelganger St. Louis Meezers in so we could get some green papers from that store too!
Oh well, we will all win Squillions soon!
Purrs and headbutts,

HRH Yao-Lin said...

now, are you absolutely positive it wasn't your huma who won? I mean, she may be keeping it quiet incase you run around telling all the neighbourhood cats. I wouldn't blame her - you could end up with all the strays and waifs at your door! x

DaisyMae Maus said...

Gosh ... That woulda been furry cool if you guys had become squillionaires ... I'll bet that you'd have made a college fund for your sister first, right?

Tiggie FOC said...

That would have been one major Par-tee!!!
Imagine how big of a cat tree you could have gotten...you could even have had the walls carpeted so your could scratch anywhere.

Now my head is spinning.

Wrigley & Cobalt said...

We iz sorry to hear you did not win all the green papers. That would have been amazing!
