Read Mighty Mouse's Thought For The Day - Every Day

This is the story of a tiny kitten - a runt, who was not expected to live. He refused to give in - he struggled against being put to sleep and left to die - even though people mistook him for some kind of alien mouse and not a kitten. His heart is bigger than a mountain - his love is boundless. He is an inspiration to everyone who comes in contact with him

THE FACTS OF LIFE - a classic

HI Everyone - today is a classic story from when Oliver was about 8 weeks old. His Uncle Whooshka, a beautiful neutered Tonkinese - was dreading THAT question!

Whooshka had to think fast - but he hadn't reckoned on how cheeky the Mouse was.

Or how smart.

I'm afraid Lord Oliver Monta Purrington was not got going to be fobbed off with fairy stories

So he asked me - and I told him the truth. But he didn't believe me!!! Maybe I'll try again....right before he gets the snip. Or is that just too cruel!

Hi Everyone
For those of us who have followed Mighty Mouse's journey from the beginning it's impossible to remember a time when he and D'Arcy - the beautiful Burmilla boy - were not best mates and brothers.

But it was a very different story at their first meeting - D'Arcy was a little shy - and Mighty Mouse was full of himself as usual.

What the mouse lacked in brawn - he made up for in sheer bravado....but then, remember, everyone had convinced him he was a superhero!

Though he was only a baby and got his superheroes mixed up

And after nearly destroying all dady's papers in the study - our little boy was just about to give up when.....

And they've been inseparable ever since

If you spend too much time judging people - you won't have enough time for loving them.
Dats what I finks anyway.
Hab a lubberly weekend evwybodi.

Hi Everyone -

So many of Oliver's aunties and friends seem to have missed the bulk of the photos of when he was very young and very tiny.

What you are seeing in these pics is not a two or three day old kitten but the miracle Mighty Mouse between 4 and 5 weeks.

Hard to believe now that he weighed just 210 grams at 4 weeks

For the first 4 weeks that I had him he was fed every hour 24/7 and spent his time sleeping in my bra or inside my dressing gown so that he could hear my heart beat. I had only ever hand raised one kitten before and that was 34 years ago.
When I look at him now it is hard to believe this tiny weird looking creature survived at all...let alone grew into the beautiful Oliver.
He'll be back tomorrow with his thought for the day and tomorrow a Classic adventure from the Archives!

Hallo everyone -
I'm sorry we've been absent for a while. Oliver is growing in leaps and bounds and is always learning something new. Today it's reading - but I'm not sure he's actually getting educated.

I think it's going to take more than spectacles to stop this little boy making a spectacle of himself!

And of course - as soon as he thought there was no-one looking....

And i give him extra points for bluffing his way through when he's sprung.

So if I see David Balducci's name on the cover I'll assume it's William Shakespeare!
He and D'Arcy still have to tackle Arithmetic....heaven help us!

He was a stray on de streets and Mummy and Daddy took him in....dere furst cat tergever. Dat was five years ago. He is de bestest Uncle in de World and maybe eben de bestest cat cos he looks after all of us but he bewwy bewwy gentle. He got a funny miaow tho. He sound like a gal! ( don't tell him I sed dat!)

De ubber free kitties is all called Mesmereyes.... dat dere breeders name but I fink she my Auntie Carole.

Dey is all bewwy bootiful Burpmillas - a speshel breed. They all comed to our place as adult cats being rehomed cos Auntie Carole knew my Mum ( who is crazy cat lady) and my Dad ( who nearly crazy cat lady) would love dem heaps and gib dem good homes.

De furst one is D' bestes fwend in de hole wurl...he like my big bruvver and we plays all day long - an sometimes all night too...hehehehehe

Dis is my bewwy bootiful Auntie Millie. Daddy sez she got "cometobed eyes" but I don't know why she want to come to bed in de mawning. She only juz got up! Sumtimez she like me....sometimes she don't.

Dis Burpmilla is Auntie Soraya...she a princess and a queen and a grumpy bum. Mummy call her Devil Diva sumtimez. She smackz me sumtimez and she was bewwy bewwy nasty to D'Arcy...always fights him and eben left TWO of her claws stuck in his head. He cwied and cwied. We finked maybe we have to send her away but now she being a GOOD Diva and she don't hurt D'Arcy any more.
She bewwy speshal to Mummy and she fink she de favwit....But I fink mez de favwit.

So dat's all my kitty family. I hope you liked meeting them. We's all pretty good lookin isn't we?

Hi everyone....
It's been a strange weekend but Olivers eye infection seems to have cleared up and he and D'Arcy have been having lots of cuddle time. I don't know what they're up to - but they don't seem to want company.

There are times when my boys just need....well.....boys' time

Friday, February 26, 2010


You may remember we left our hero surprised by an unexpected visitor...and an angry one at that

And Lord Oliver Monta Purrington AKA Mighty Mouse fought for his love - but all in vain.

She had gone - and he was alone

To add insult to injury she left him with an eye infection. Lucky it wasn't worse. Poor Boy!

Hi Everyone,
Oliver and the family have just come back from his first holiday - on Victoria's Phillip Island - famous for it's wild penguin colony. The little blue ( yes, that's right - blue) penguins are so pretty and just adorable. And obviously our boy thought so too. But we all know holidays are the time for romance.

I reall did try to be tactful but I had to mention that his new love put it bluntly ...stuffed!
But Oliver Lord Monta Purrington still thinks he's Mighty Mouse - and he won't be told!

And Idon't think Gwen was entirely truthful with him

What has the boy got himself into?

Saturday, February 20, 2010


Hey Evwyboddy -
I goin away wiv mummee and Daddee for 2 days so here is my fort!
Ebewy day is a new avencha - jus by bein alibe!
