Psssssssssst, Meezers

Psssssssssst, Meezers. All of you, but especially young Billy. Can you cry a little louder? Your sobs are breaking down Jan's resolve. Especially right after Opus & Cyndi's messages.

Jan told us very few bloggers would notice if we retired, but that we were to be polite and leave a last post for anyone who might stop by so they wouldn't keep looking for us to post. She's surprised so many of you have come by and left a comment.

Now she's feeling guilty. (Well, she should! This is our blog!) And she's melting. But don't tell her we posted this. We aren't supposed to be on the computer today. But we wanted to let you know .....

Jan: Guys, come here a minute. I want to apologize for making you close your journal. I didn't realize you had so many friends who would miss you. So, I've been thinking .....

Buddy: Yes? You were saying?

Jan: Oh, right. I've been thinking that maybe I was too hasty and if you give me a few days to work some things out, perhaps you can re-open JFF. But you'll have to cut down on your blogging time. Is that okay with you guys?

JFF: Yes, Jan.

Jan: Okay, then, you can let your friends know you'll be back soon. Don't even ask that, Buddy!

Buddy: What? I didn't say anything!

Jan: You had the "I'm going to drive Jan crazy with questions look" in your eyes. I'll let you know when you can start posting regularly again. Now, go let your friends know. And please tell the Meezers to stop sobbing. I can't bear to hear cats cry, especially when one is a baby.

Psssssssssst! Thanks, Sammy, Miles & Billy. You heard what she said. We'll be back. We hope soon. Our paws are itching to get back to the keyboard. We already had a couple of posts ready when we were forcibly retired and today we received our prize package from Skeezix ....

So keep your reading glasses handy! We're coming back.

Buddy: Whatever made her think 9 talkative animals could "retire"?

Percy, tapping his paw on his heart: Insanity, Buddy, insanity. It's inherited, you know. She got it from us.

    Please be nice to Jan, she works very hard for all of you and has lots to do. So try not to pester her about blogging too much. But we hope we see lots of the JFF gang.

  30. YEAH!!!! YEAH!!!! YEAH!!!

    Had I known someone would actually listen to me I would have demanded that you continue blogging (however I am woefully ignored around the house--sometimes I suspect it is just to listen to my dulcet tones).

    So consider this a meezer demand: KEEP BLOGGGING!!!!!

  31. Janice: Hooray!! Auntie Jan will not be moving out from here!!

    Daddy: Now brats... you can start clearing up that rolls of tissue papers on the floor...

    Joey: Huh? But we are all babies still Daddy. See... my paws are still so small.

    Jolyn: Errr... I'm still new here. I don't even know where those rolls of tissues are kept... I just join in the fun...

    Jimmy: What? We did not tear all those rolls apart Daddy. Blame it on Justin. Hehe.. but i did play with a tiny weeny piece here.

    Justin: Don't always blame me on playing with those rolls of tissues. You know they have always excite me. Jeremy's are partly to be blame for digging those out.

    Daddy: Duh! Jeremy is involved as well now?

    Jayson: **nod nod** I saw him forcing the cabinet door open last night.

    Jeremy: Wait a minute there! I did not force open that door! It was opened when I was there. I wanted to get a marker pen to draw Auntie Jan a "Please Come Back" card but those rolls just distracted my attention.

    Papa Jonathan: Gosh! I wasn't that playful when I was still your age... 10 rolls of tissue papers all torn and scattered all over the floor? This is just too much!!

    Mama Jessica: Now how is Daddy going to wipe those tears of joy that Auntie Jan is planning to make a comeback? See! He's still crying over there...

    Daddy: Tik Tok Tik Tok... **furiously pressing the calculator** Sob~ Sob~ **mumbling** One roll of tissue is $x.xx... 10 rolls equals $x.xx... Arghh~~ The kitties had just burned part of their food cost...

    Janice: Psss... guys... Do you think we should get Daddy to make us some paper mache balls out of those spoiled tissues?

    Jayson: Errr... no new toys after this? Those are going to last us for years... Now I'm crying.. Sob~~

    Or let me put it like this:
    Resistence is futile.
    You will be blogged.

  44. Jan and friends,
    It is almost 5am. Last week at this time, we were rushing Roscoe to a vet's office near Bologna (45 mins from home). This week we are up at this hour to honor and remember Rosoe at an online candle serivce (which didn't start till 10pm in America).

    The point is that we (opus is here too) were feeling so very sad. And then we checked your blog before going back to bed. We smiled when we read your post.

    So glad that you guys will stick around. Opus and I need ALL of our friends right now!

    Now, off to bed! Good night!
    Love,
    Opus and Cyn

    You are not going away?

    Oh this is good, very good news!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I just heard you were thinking of leaving and now I find out that you are staying. Yay for staying. Just work the blogging in when you can. When I started blogging I had lots more free time than I do now and I posted every day. I had to cut down on how much I could do considerably since then and at first I felt bad about it, but it seems to be working out now. What I'm trying to say is: Don't beat yourself up if you can only post once a week or so. We will be glad to see you whenever you can post.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love you Miss Jan and today it is important that I tell you that. You are so special to all of us and we soemtimes don't tell you that enough...we should.
    Thank you for staying with us, we need you here.
    Big hugs from Miss peach

  58. Yay Jan! So glad to hear that your are reconsidering! My mom says she totally understands though, because blogging is a crazy thing, sorta addictive, and sometimes she can't stop, but other times she just has too much real stuff in real life to do. We do hope you are back, if even part-time.
    Purrs to you!

    And now:

    Whew, I'm so glad you changed your mind..if you can only post once a week, that would still be better than never seeing you again! I'm so relieved!

Thanks. We love to hear from you.
