Post 500 & A Contest!

This is it! 500 posts. I find it amazing, and delightful, all at the same time! And in celebration, a tearstrip was located (no, it's a new one, the box with cat toys hasn't surfaced yet! lolol!) and just guess who came out of hiding and decided she felt a whole lot better?

Sorry the lighting is so bad, these rooms only have ceiling lights (remember those?).

But that didn't affect the quality of our playtime one bit!

The Meezer had a blast. I later discovered the tearstrip under the office chair, so sometime during the night she decided to continue the game.

And here, as I'm finding this an incredibly easy yarn to knit with...the STR Rooster Rock sock - heel turned (today I finished up the gussets and started up the cuff!):

Now, because I promised, we'll have a contest. Leave a comment here, let's say by Friday, March 30 at midnight, telling me The Meezer's best quality...On Saturday, I'll put everyone's name in a hat and draw name for a prize...what? You want to know what the prize will be?

OHhhhhhhhhh...well, you see Nana Sadie Rose will be going to the Sedalia Fiber Festival in Big Island, VA on April 14. And in honor of that, a new design will be added to Nana's bag line. While I don't have a photo to share just yet, the bag will be called the "Posy Sock Sack" after one of Nana's aunts. Suffice it to say it will have some neat features. And the winner of the blog contest will be lucky to have one of the first Posy Sacks made.

Now, if you have a blogger account, please check back because I won't be able to email you if you win.

So....tell me what you think of The Meezer!

Happy 500th post!!!!

The Meezer's best honor of the new tearstrip. The Meezer is......easily amused? A cheap date? No, I have cool cat :o) Nice to see that happy sweet face again!

Only one quality? She's snarky, all those comments she makes via photo caption makes it obvious that she's the supreme ruler of your household and she knows it.

Her best quality is that she's there for you when you need her. Just like a true friend! :)

The Meezer's greatest quality would have to be her playfulness.

The Meezer, enjoys her simple toys (tearstrips), she's easy to please but still Miss Independant!

Well...I'm not sure what to say about the Meezer. I love having him on your blog. It makes it fun. And his attitude is great and comes out naturally in the pictures. That and I NEED, NEED, NEED, NEED, NEED, NEED that bag!!!!!! :)

I can think of two best qualities: 1) She's beautiful & 2) she's incredibly loyal - to the tear strip, even if it isn't the original. Glad to see that she's feeling better!

Well, the Meezer is so pretty and self-confident in most matters...but, I think one of her best qualities is her ability to clearly communicate with just a simple glance and expression on her face. : )

The faithfulness to tear strips, I admire that faithfulness in the Meezer. :) Congrats!

Congrats on your 500th post! Wow! I can only hope to get to 500...only 250 to go!

As for The Meezer, well I love her sweet little nose!

Well, Meezer's best quality has to be gorgeousness; right? :-)

Loving the colours in your Rocking Rooster socks!

Happy 500!!

I love the Meezer's velvety chocolate fur best I think :)

I'm so glad The Meezer is adjusting to her new home! Her best quality must be that she makes you happy, although her blue eyes and seal points are lovely.

Blogger Becky said...

I love how playful Meezer is and how much she interacts with you. My wild cat is rather, well, wild.

Just one best quality?

I would say her ability to find joy in the simple things (like tearstrips).

Congrats on 500 posts!

"Hi Meezer!"

Good to see her up and about. The Meezer's best unconditional love for her Mommie.

Love the sock. You are a whiz on the double points! :)

So wonderful to see you all settling in and I'm glad the Meezer is feeling more at home now. Best Quality - Loyalty.

The Meezer's best quality? I would say that she is an independent feline knowing how to amuse herself so Mom can knit to her heart's content!

Blogger Kenyetta said...

Meezer's best quality to me, is that he reminds me so much of my own rescued cat, Daisy, who was a Balinese. I no longer have her and I miss her bunches.

The Meezer's best quality is being the Meezer. I could say it's the companionship, the unconditional love, the laughs, the fun, etc., etc. But it's just being the Meez!

Congrats on getting to 500, and here's to the next 500!

l it's a bit hard to tell from a photo but if she's anything like our part-meezers, she has fantastic vocal abilities. In my experience meezers are perfectly equipped both by temperament and voice to be opera divas.

Blogger Wendy said...

Happy 500th post. and I'm so glad to see the Meezer again!

Blogger Michelle said...

Happy 500! Yippee! Can a kitty really have a best quality? I mean everything about them is purr-fect! I do love how silky the Meezers paws look when playing with the tearstrip. Love those kitty paws! Glad to see she's starting to feel better.

Oh, Meezer's absolute best quality it that "Come Hither" look.

Meezer's amazing ability to find hours of fun with the simplest of things is a great quality. Her sweet face is so expressive and a real pleasure to see. Glad she's feeling better and your wookspace is fantastic! Congrats on post 500:~D

Meezer's best quality: the cutest feet on the planet!

The Meezer's best quality?? oooh The Meezer is very photogenic.. despite the poor lighting! And .. well to throw in another .. The Meezer always has a fun playful attitude!

Congrats on your 500th post.

Looking at Meezer, I see a gorgeous cat who loves to have fun.

Congrats of your 500th post! Meezer's Best quality - love & companionship. I'm glad she's adjusting to the move. I'm planning on going to Sedalia too! I'll look for you there!

Blogger Erica said...

Well, I'd say the Meezer's best quality is her expressiveness. I mean, really, look at those pictures in today's post!

Blogger margene said...

Clearly her best quality is her beauty;-)

10:58 AM  
Blogger Cindy said...

Her best quality is her ability to remain humble although she is exquisitely beautiful.

Meezer's best quality?
Intelligence definately!

Love the socks!

Blogger sheep#100 said...

I just don't understand how such a clever cat gets so much enjoyment out of a tear strip!

11:41 AM  
Blogger Susanne said...

The best thing about the Meezer is that he is all CAT!! Loves to be around you when HE decides he wants to be and otherwise, just leave me be lady!! I have a "Meezer" too in the name of "Boots"...she is equally aloof, and usually decides she wants to sit with me when I am in the middle of the bazillionth row of a complicated chart!!! But we love them and that is why they are our constant companions.

Blogger cate said...

The meezer's best attribute is that she is a true friend. A confidante and playmate. Great company in good times and bad. catie

1:28 PM  
Blogger Mera said...

Well, Mother-Dear, obviously you can't enter my name into the drawing because it'd be nepatism! :)

But, I do have to say that my furry-half sister from another mother's best quality is that she keeps you good company so that you don't miss us quite as much. Although, we still miss you awfully!

Oh, and the demented calico fiend, KishKash, sends her love and affection to her aunt! (Claw tapping and nuzzles of course).

As for the sock bag... oh goody! I get to make another section for your website! Looking forward to the revamp? I am! :)

Happy 500 Mom. :) Luv ya!

Congrats on your 500th Post!!!

As for Meezer....I think the fact that she is a cat that enjoys a good romp with her toys...whether they be "official" cat toys or just something that catchs their fancy.

2:37 PM  
Blogger CelticCastOn said...

ahh thats funny that you posted about the tearstrips. I was opening something with one the other day, Sock was sitting beside me and I said Here sock you can be like the Meezer..... she just walked over it :( HUMPH!
The Meezer knows how to have a good time with anything :)

congrats on the 500th post!!

I think Meezer's best quality is sheer beauty (ok. and those black feets!)

Concatulations on 500 posts! If your Meezer is like my Meezer, her best quality is her purrsonality!!

7:09 PM  
Blogger lorinda said...

I'm sure Meezer is offended that you asked us what her best quality is. ALL her qualities are the best. She is divinely beautiful, exceptionally talented and deigns to love you, just to name a few. What more could you ask?

Congrats on 500 posts!

Hey pal!! I lovbed the ROCK!!! Meezers best quality...I think its her superior look...she is queen of the roost no???

Her gorgeous coloring! (especially those silky dark feet)
Happy 500 posts!

Of course the Meezer is a great beauty, but I do think the best quality that has surfaced through your blog is tenacity! Happy 500th post, and what a great sock that is going to be....

10:22 PM  
Blogger Unknown said...

The Meezer has many good qualities, but I'll say she's a great model. :) That's because my cats are awful at it!

11:26 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Happy 500 :)

I think the Meezer's best quality is her consistency. She decided that if you moved she was not going to come out from her hiding place...and she didn't...for all this time ;)

1:28 AM  
Blogger knottykitty said...

Meezer's best quality is that in her Siam-eze-ness, she ALWAYS knows how to have a good time, no matter what! :)

1:22 PM  
Blogger Mranthe said...

Well, quite obviously, the Meezer shows her quality by keeping .you. occupied with naught but a tearstrip. Imagine, then, what she might be able to accomplish with a bit of yarn, hmm?...

Blogger HPNY KNITS said...

happy blogiversary!!!!!

Blogger Olga said...

I think the best quality the cat has is she hasn't eaten everyone...yet.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Happy 500th post!
Only one quality? Hmmmm.... Let's say: It's that she's taking you for who and what you are, always. She won't mind if you've just been getting up and look a bit tired still, she won't mind which clothes you're wearing, in what mood you're in, how your hair looks, she won't moan and complain - the perfect friend, I'd say ;)

12:38 AM  
Blogger bunchkin said...

Her best quality has to be her ability to write her thoughts on a blog, I mean really, how many cats can do that?


3:44 AM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Clearly the Meezer's best quality can be summed up on one word: Purrsonality! Although, my Siamese "pride" Minky, Victoria, and Casper think she is a really attractive lady and are fascinated with her pin-up pictures!

Her stunning good looks, of course! :-)
