UPDATE: Voting is completed. The contest has ended early because someone was cheating. I am sorry to have to do this, but it has been brought to my attention that anipals are cheating by voting for themselves A LOT. It’s not fair to the other anipals, and it makes it not fun anymore. I allowed repeat voting so that anipals who liked more than one costume could vote for more than one anipal.

 

How the voting will be decided:

I am taking the next highest scores below the cheaters and having them be the winner. That way the fair anipals’ voices are heard. I have learned from my mistakes and next time I will set up my polls differently. But I don’t have the time or patience to do new polls because someone was selfish. Sorry again to the fair anipals.

Time to vote for which categories you want to see, anipals

Hey guys, it’s time for you to vote for which categories you want to see (and for me to try out this poll thing). I’m going to give you all lots of choices, and we are going to have lots of different categories. That way everyone has a chance, because all of the pics are fantastic, and I wish all of you could win! Mom would burn out from writing so much if you all did win, though MOL. Also, feel free to add a category that you would like to see that isn’t listed. The Best of 2010 is a given, that is why it’s not listed.  Here we go, category list:

Happy Halloween Pt 1

Posted in Uncategorized on October 13, 2010 by kingjoeybeancat

Hello there my loyal followers! How are you all doing?! Well, since I feel a special connection to Halloween, being a black cat and all, I decided to do a Halloween post dedicated to all of my anipals who dress up for MY holiday! Purrs! Here are the lovely anipals at their best! And, just for fun, at the end of this post, I will let you, the anipals vote on the best costume of 2010! Whoever wins will get a short story about themselves in a Halloween setting courtesy of my Mom. Along with the best costume of the year, we will also have various other categories that will get an award “plaque” (photoshop made plaque), but only the anipal voted to have the best costume of the year will get the story. This is mainly because Mom can’t possibly write over 20 short stories and have them be good quality. Of course Best Costume of 2010 is a tough decision, and all of the costumes are wonderful, but you must decide. It is an order from your king.

CONTEST WILL BEGIN ON SUNDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2010 AT MIDNIGHT CST! (So basically Saturday night/Sunday morning) This way all anipals who want to participate will have the chance to get a costume together! I will post a poll in a new post at Midnight on 10/16/2010, that way you can vote anonymously. The decision will be made on 10/24/10, in order to give Mom plenty of time to write a good story for the winner! There is no limit to entries either! So no matter how many costumes/Halloween avs you have, you can enter the ones you see fit. I also will not vote, because I am giving away a prize. The short story will be posted on my blog on October 31, and Mom can also email you a copy if you wish. Thanks, and good luck to all!!

We’ll get mine out of the way first, then onto the contest!

Humans are very whiny when they are sick

Posted in Uncategorized on October 4, 2010 by kingjoeybeancat

So this entire weekend has been about Mom. She has a “stomach disease,” as she calls it, and has been whining and cursing the entire weekend. Yesterday, I tried to be a nice supportive son and take care of her. I tried to send healing purrs and hoped that would help. It didn’t. And today, she is still whining. Only now she feels better, so she is whining louder. I try to ignore her, but it just doesn’t work.

So then, I finally acknowledge her. Then she says,

“Joey, Mommy feels so bad. Tummy hurts. Gonna puke.”

Great. So she whines at me until she gets my attention to tell me that she’s going to vomit on my head. Perfect.

I am not amused by this at all. So then, I go back to minding my own business. I’m relaxing in the floor, being awesome, as usual.

And she starts bothering me AGAIN! It is driving me up the wall!

So anipals, a word of advice. Keep your humans healthy, or else you’ll end up getting annoyed CONSTANTLY for DAYS!

Until next time, this is your King, signing off.

I am going to start this blog off with the story of my past.

Posted in Uncategorized on October 3, 2010 by kingjoeybeancat

I was born in Chicago, IL in 2001. A not so nice family took me in, and I spent my time as a kitten with them. They were extremely abusive to me, and I still have the scars to show for it. They ended up leaving their apartment, and they left me there to die. Someone heard me meowing and called animal control, and the nice animal control people came to rescue me and took me to a shelter. Since I am a black cat, they didn’t think that I would last long in the shelter.

The people from Petables, which is located in a Chicago suburb, came to the shelter to find some cats to rescue. They took one look at me and decided that I needed to be saved. I was placed in a foster home with lots of other cats. The other cats picked on me, and I didn’t trust them at all. I was extremely nervous, and though no one knew it, I was also suffering from an Upper Respiratory infection.

The people at Petables began taking me to adoption fairs, but I never did well. The new people scared me, and I just wanted to hide in the back of my cage and be left alone. I had a funny meow and a funny purr, because my Upper Respiratory had been left untreated for so long. I developed a case of asthma, and blisters had grown in my throat. I remained in the rescue for three years.

This is Mom

One day, while Mom was working at an animal hospital, she was talking to one of the ladies from Petables. Mom didn’t really want a cat, but when the lady told her about me, she became interested.

“I’ve always wanted a black cat,” Mom said.

“You can try him out free of charge. If he doesn’t work out, then you can return him to us. But he has been in the rescue for three years, and I’m afraid he will never find his forever home. He doesn’t do well at adoption fairs.” The lady told her.

“Okay, I will give him a try. I just hope he doesn’t hurt Buttercup, my guinea pig,” Mom replied.

This is me with Buttercup This is me with Buttercup. We got along fine. I loved my sister. She’s now OTRB.

The next day, the lady brought me into the animal hospital. I was so frightened! The lady took me out of the cage and handed me to Mom. I was shy and I tried to hide my face from her. She held onto me, though, and declared me to be the sweetest cat ever. She took me home that day after work.

Grandma was in town visiting Mom, and she picked up a litter box and some food from the store on her way to Mom’s house. I had a potty and food and water when I got to Mom’s. After I was settled in a bit (hiding under the bed, I’m embarrassed to say), Mom went to a pet store and got me some more stuff. She got me lots of toys and a lovely red leather spiked collar. She said it made me hardcore. I had never had so much stuff in my life!

The next few days, I thought everything was a dream. I just knew I’d wake up any minute and be back in the rescue house with ten other cats. I hid from Mom a lot, but she was very patient and kept telling me what a good boy I was. Slowly, but surely, I started to believe her. I also warmed up to Grandma while she was in town. Eventually, I came around.

A week or so after Mom had gotten me, she noticed I was coughing. She finally took me to the vet and was told that I have Upper Respiratory and asthma. The doctor told her that I had been infected for three years, and because of that, I now have chronic asthma. I have to get steroid shots every few months so the blisters don’t swell.

Now I am the friendliest cat in the world! Of course you have to be friendly when you’re the king! Subjects don’t like a stuck up king. Now I introduce myself to Mom’s friends when they come over, I go visit Grandma down in Tennessee and stay at her house when Mom travels, and I also spend as much time as I can with Mom. I am the happiest cat around, too! I always purr, sometimes even in my sleep! Now you know the journey that I took from alley cat to king of the world!

Sitting on my throne, keeping watch over the world.
