Eagles Concert in Boston....

BOSTON - Touring with their first new record of new material The Eagles performed at a sell out concert last night at the TD Banknorth Garden in Boston.

Playing to a sold-out crowd of 12,694 (and wearing black coats and ties — a good look, updated without being uptight), the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers — Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Timothy B. Schmit and Joe Walsh — started off with four songs off last year’s Long Road Out of Eden.

However, most fans were waiting for the old classics to be played and went wild when Joe Walsh introduced The Pooses for Peace, as they did back-up vocals for Hotel California and Witchy Woman.

Celebrity cats Zevo Calamari, Miss Boo and Lucy Fur all wore black leather jackets with red Manolos and sported witch hats instead of their usual tiaras. The band sang a get well ditty to Nubi wan Kenobi and announced that they are backing presidential candidate Cheysuli for 2008.

Other members of the Pooses for Peace Bite & Run brigades attended the concert and after parties courtesy of The Eagles. The invite was a thank you to all those cats who purred so hard while Nubi wan Kenobi was ill.

We apologize that we cannot name all the cats however we know that Lux, Miles, Sammy, Billie, Daisy, Mr Hendrix, Bendrix, Mickey, Gemini, Cheysuli, The Hotties, Riley, Tiki, Rex, Kilroy, Boy, Smeagol, Strider, Pixel, China Cat, Meowers from Missouri, Purrageous Pirates, PB & J, ML, Debra, Dragonheart & Merlin, The Cat Realm cats, Kaze, Latte, Chase, Victor Tabbycat, Tazo, the Zoolatry cats, Marilyn Monreow, Tao, Sarge, Bubba and at least 50 other cats a few dogs and Karen Jo were dancing and rocking out to the music. (If we left anyone out we apologize!)

The Eagles have asked the cats to go on tour with them for the rest of the summer.

Zevo Calamari, spokes-poose for The Pooses for Peace issued a statement. "We are honored to join The Eagles on the rest of their summer tour. We thank them for their generosity in inviting all our poose friends as well. We will not be able to blog as much during these next few weeks since we will be so busy. Thank you all for purring for Nubi wan Kenobi this past week. He is feeling much better and acting like a poose-head um.. himself again. "

Thinking the microphone was off Miss Calamari broke out into song
I go to parties, sometimes until four
It's hard to leave when you can't find the door
It's tough to handle this fortune and fame
Everybody's so different, I haven't changed
Life's been good to us soooooo far.............................."

Shhhhh.... i am pretending to nap so the pet human does not shove anymore Chinese herbs down me. She can be such a pest with those herbs and needles. And the male pet human keeps making me take this nasty pink oozy stuff. Bleeeeeuck! Leave me alone! Enough!

I am feeling a little better. I am sure it is from all those purrs and prayers from all you wonderful pooses. Thank you so much.

I was allowed on the balcony all day today. Zevo is so jealous that i am getting all this attention. It is fun to see her so annoyed. The female pet human is driving me bonkers with all the worrying. I do hope someone pours her a nice big glass of wine soon.

I hope to be able to visit everyone soon. Please be patient with us. Our mac is really old and some of the cat blogs are just too cool and loaded with fun stuff for it. .. so it crashes alot. (Do you think those herbs and needles could help the Mac?)

Thanks again for all your purrs and love. You are all such good friends!
love

nubi wan kenobi

p.s. I AM NOT JEALOUS! He is faking it .. i am so sure.. he is still a poose-head.
love

Wookie visits Nubi wan Kenobi

The Mighty Wookie, Zach came to visit Nubi wan Kenobi to bring healing powers of the Force.

Wookies and Jedis are the best of friends. ......Ok .....well maybe Hans Solo was not a Jedi but he did hang out with Jedi Master, Luke Skywalker and the Mighty Chewbacca!

The FORCE is strong with these two. This picture does not do the Wookie justice! He is a very big Wookie.. (part bearded collie and part chocloate lab) The Force is strong in his family. (Pay no attention to the mess behind the Wookie! )

We would like to thank everyone who has been sending healing purrs and good thoughts our way. Nubi went to the vet today. He is OK.. not out of the woods yet, but we are hoping that he will soon pass this critical stage this weekend. He is getting the best of Eastern and Western medicine. We are so happy that our vet is so open to alternative medicine!

I will do my best to visit everyone's post next week to thank you all for everything. Until then... thank you all! We appreciate all the love and wonderful messages you have been sending.

Have a great weekend.

jeanie




I need a sign to let me know you're here
All of these lines are being crossed over the atmosphere
I need to know that things are gonna look up
'Cause I feel us drowning in a sea spilled from a cup

When there is no place safe and no safe place to put my head
When you feel the world shake from the words that are said


And I'm calling all angels
I'm calling all you angels

I won't give up if you dont give up

I need a sign to let me know you're here
'Cause my TV set just keeps it all from being clear
I want a reason for the way things have to be
I need a hand to help build up some kind of hope inside of me

And I'm calling all angels
I'm calling all you angels

I won't give up if you dont give up
I won't give up if you dont give up
I won't give up if you dont give up
I won't give up if you dont give up

I need a hand to help build up some kind of hope inside of me

And I'm calling all angels
I'm calling all you angels...........

Thanks

Nubi wan Kenobi gets Acupuncture!

I know the needles are hard to see since they are red and the blanket behind me is red too. There are 5 in me!

Today i was just not feeling too good so my pet human gave me an acupuncture treatment and forced me to take some nasty Chinese herbs....... i was very brave too. I even fell asleep during the treatment. She used the laser on me. I did try to bite her when she tried to needle spleen 9... not sure why she wanted to do that or what spleen 9 means... but she massaged it instead.

I am feeling a little better now. My humans are hoping that the herbs kick in soon. None of us want to go to the vet this week. Please send healing purrs our way!

Thanks
nubi wan kenobi

p.s. If you have not signed the petition in the post below please do SOON! It would make us all feel so much better. Thanks

Pooses for Peace Emergency Session Called



An emergency session of The Pooses for Peace was called on Monday night in hopes of urging congress to send Karl Rove to jail.

The celebrity cats had just returned from a birthday weekend with Nelson Mandela and his family and were seen staggering off the plane wearing tiaras and leather jackets in the wee hours last night. Unconfirmed sources claim the cats were hung over.


The cats have had several run ins with Mr Rove, affectionately referred to as Turd Blossom by GWB, in the past.
The cats were accused of several Bite & Run attacks which involved him and many of his cronies. To read about just a few of these incidents click here!

The attacks have been featured on CNN, FOX NEWS, Larry King, The Daily Show and even David Letterman.


Zevo Calamari, spokes-poose for the Pooses for Peace issued a statement:
"It is in our best interest to put this huge slab of porcine butter behind bars. He outed our dear CIA agent Valerie Plame. He lied about the weapons of mass destruction, he was behind most of the dirty deeds done by the Bush administration and he is pure evil. I implore you to sign the petition so that Congress once and for all will do its job. Congress.....Don't make us bring out our Bite & Run brigades." Miss Calamari thought the microphones were off when she said under her breath "Oh God there is just not enough tequila or listerine to get rid of the taste of Old Turd-Blossom.


According to the Credo website which is part of the movement to jail Rove, "
All we have to do is pressure the 40 members of the House Judiciary Committee, make them hold Rove in contempt and send him to jail. We've never had such a direct opportunity to hold Rove accountable. No, this is not enough punishment for his years and years of crimes, but it's a huge start, and will send a very clear message to the entire Bush administration.


Our friends at Brave New Films put together this video to explain the issues surrounding Rove's failure to testify before Congress, and why Rove should be held in contempt and sent to jail. We've teamed up with Brave New Films and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington to hold Karl Rove accountable. Check out Send Karl Rove to Jail, and sign our petition to ensure that the House Judiciary Committee holds Rove in contempt."

Happy Enlightenment Day



Today is the Buddhist holiday which celebrates the Enlightenment of AvalokiteĊ›vara, also known in some Buddhist traditions as Kuan Yin. She is the deity of compassion.

Even though Nubi wan Kenobi is a Jedi, he also is a devotee of Kuan Yin and brings her toy mice during his daily meditations.

Namaste!
Spread some compassion today.

Pooses for Peace in Africa


Associated Press

South Africa's elder statesman Nelson Mandela is marking his 90th birthday Friday in a private celebration with his family and friends The Pooses for Peace at his home in the Eastern Cape. The celebrity cats arrived in Africa late last night and will be staying with Nelson Mandela and his family for the weekend.

Mr Mandela made the following comment" If a ninety-year-old may offer some unsolicited advice on this occasion, it would be that you, irrespective of your age, should place human solidarity [and] a concern for others at the center of the values by which you live," he said.

He added that all animals should be treated with the upmost respect and compassion from humans. And reminded those who believe they are superior to animals that they are not.

The Ashram of The Flying Spaghetti Monster

I just arrived in India this morning. My pet human is in a stable mental state and her hot flashes um... i mean ...the heat seems to be subsided. (for now!)

We are at the Ashram of the Flying Spaghetti Monster in Kashmir, India. He is not a Hindu Diety, however the cult has become very popular here. We are lighting incense so that we are blessed by his Noodly appendage. (My pet human is a devotee of the FSM)

The mantra is "RAmen" I guess we are now officially all pastafarians.

Shanti Shanti Ramen!

Pooses for Peace in India..

Shanti Shanti!

Miss Lucy Fur and i have decided to go to India. My pet human is there and we thought we could mooch off um, stay with her. We ran out of food and tequila at the house. It was fortunate she left a credit card for us to book first class tickets to Kashmir! (Of course.. we had to really look for it. It was hidden in a locked safe.)

Zevo had to return to Salem. Her pet human was either having a melt down or was melting. We are not really sure. It is hard to understand what OH MY GOD I AM BURSTING INTO FLAMES means. Is she Moses? (I do know there was alot of crying, and a bottle of wine involved and rumors of tequila.) Humans can be such ninnies!

I do hope Zevo can join us later this week. Nubi is still working as Chey's bodyguard.

We are at a shrine dedicated to the Hindu deity, Ganesha, the Remover of Obstacles. He is also the Deity of good fortune so we are lighting several sticks of incense for everyone!

Later we will go to the market and buy earrings and a sari to match our eyes. These women know how to decorate themselves!

Oh... our masala chicken is here...

Namaste!
Boo-ananda

ps... we are hoping to be able to visit more blogs sometime this week. It has been difficult with Zevo's pet human refusing to sit at the computer in the heat .. or was it a melt down? Thanks for being patient. Om Shanti Shanti

Greetings from purgatory...

.... or maybe this really is hell?

Since Zevo is visiting Boo and Lucy Fur in San Diego and Nubi is still working as Cheysuli's bodyguard, i need to take a few days off from this computer. As Zevo's slave it is very difficult to actually take time off.

My kitchen office does not have AC. The humidity and the heat have fried my brain cells.

I am sorry that The Pooses for Peace will not be making many comments on other cat blogs or posting on theirs until the weather changes.

I am also sorry to report that the Senate sold out today by voting for the stinky FISA bill that allows the USA to spy on its citizens AND gives the telecom corporations immunity. So maybe this really is hell.

Hoping for a cooler day and better news soon!

Zevo's pet human,
Princess Calamari

p.s. Does anyone know where Zevo keeps that stash of tequila and margarita mix?

2008-07-08

Someone please take this kid away....


Um...like...EXcuuuuuuuse me.... Hello..... is anyone home? I am very busy and important and do not have time to babysit this...this.... wretched um, adorable child.

I have a party to go get dressed for. Boo is expecting me to help make nip-tinis and set out the buffet and Zevo is at the airport waiting for us to pick her up.

I think this cute strapless, Dolce Gabbana dress should do for tonight....hmmm where is my tiara? JUDD you sneaky puppy.... you better take that tiara out of your mouth now ... i said NOW... drop it. Sit. Stay. Go fetch me a nip-tini. NOW!

xoxoxo
miss lucy fur

p.s. We apologize for not visiting everyone this week. Besides that fact that we are very busy and important, my secretary is working extra long hours this week!.... Someone has to pay for our Versace and tequila habits.

2008-07-07

My pet human is leaving for India and we have the house to ourselves. And i am thinking.... PARTY TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Birthday to HH the Dalai Lama

"All sentient beings gave the right to life. It is obvious that mammals, birds and fish all feel pleasure and pain, and that therefore they do not like pain any more than we do. When we abuse animals, simply for a profit motive, even if we leave the Buddhist point of view aside, such action contradicts elementary moral values. "



We will be napping for world peace today!
Namaste,
The Pooses for Peace

the party continues....


The Pooses for Peace Fourth of July Party continued through the night and is still going strong today.

Special guest John Prine was joined on stage by back-up vocalists Zevo Calamari, Miss Boo and Miss Lucy Fur. Also singing harmony with the ensemble were Miles and Sammy Meezer.

Sing along with John and the Pooses for Peace. This song is dedicated to all you folks who think that wearing a flag pin is mandatory to prove you are patriotic!

Your Flag Decal Won't Get You Into Heaven Anymore
© John Prine

While digesting Reader's Digest
In the back of a dirty book store,
A plastic flag, with gum on the back,
Fell out on the floor.
Well, I picked it up and I ran outside
Slapped it on my window shield,
And if I could see old Betsy Ross
I'd tell her how good I feel.

Chorus:
But your flag decal won't get you
Into Heaven any more.
They're already overcrowded
From your dirty little war.
Now Jesus don't like killin'
No matter what the reason's for,
And your flag decal won't get you
Into Heaven any more.

Well, I went to the bank this morning
And the cashier he said to me,
"If you join the Christmas club
We'll give you ten of them flags for free."
Well, I didn't mess around a bit
I took him up on what he said.
And I stuck them stickers all over my car
And one on my wife's forehead.

Repeat Chorus:

Well, I got my window shield so filled
With flags I couldn't see.
So, I ran the car upside a curb
And right into a tree.
By the time they got a doctor down
I was already dead.
And I'll never understand why the man
Standing in the Pearly Gates said...

"But your flag decal won't get you
Into Heaven any more.
We're already overcrowded
From your dirty little war.
Now Jesus don't like killin'
No matter what the reason's for,
And your flag decal won't get you
Into Heaven any more."
