Oscar here – I am back!

Tuesday, December 1, 2009
Hi guys, I twisted Mommy's arm to finally update my blog! She even took two photos of me, showing me at my favorite pastime: Catnaps! Mommy says, I shall not apologize for not posting in ages, instead I shall tell you what I did the last months. But before I do that, I have to say that it wasn't Mommy's fault, she was really, really busy with other stuff. And at the moment she takes even part in a SEO contest called “Oes tsetnoc”, but she still took time out to write what I dictate her ;-)

Oh, yes, we also have a few questions for you! Mommy and I were chatting the other night and she asked if my heart hangs really on this blog or not? First I thought my heart stops, ok, I haven't blogged in ages, but I really don't want to loose my blog completely. But then she explained that she is not really happy with having to cope with a blogspot blog and would much prefer when I would “move house” so to speak. Either as a fellow blogger on one of her own blogs or on an own wordpress blog she would host for me. What do you think? She says she could transfer the blog so that I could take my old blog posts with me and do a bit of her “seo magic” (whatever that is, I only know of “meow magic” that is the one that gets me the treats ;-) so that I don't loose too many of my (few) visitors.

On one hand I would like a blog that is easier for Mommy to maintain and with more features like hers has. On the other hand, I am a creature of habit and don't like moving house. So, what do you think? Would you mind to give me your opinion in a comment? Meanwhile I tell you a bit of what I have done the last months, basically this:



Mommy and Daddy say, sometimes I look like a dead cat when I am sleeping and they have to check if I am really breathing! But I do like my catnaps, I can sleep anywhere. Some of my favorite sleeping places include: The wardrobe, on and under the duvet covers of the beds, on my new climbing treehouse, on the carpet under Mommy's desktop (like a dog she says, argghhh!) and the most weird of all --- on the bath-mat before the shower! But only if nobody is in the shower! So what else have I done the last months do you ask? Lets see:

First I went on holidays / vacations to Uncle G. whilst Mommy and Daddy were away themselves.
Then we all came home and celebrated the re-encounter. I was really happy that M&D were back.
Then we got people to stay with us, couch surfers, friends and family and I did a really good job entertaining them all.
Then I cut Mommy's eye lid rather badly, it was an accident, I swear!
Then M&D went on holidays / vacations again but this time I was allowed to stay at home and “Auntie Sher” from “Czech of the Beaten Path” looked after me, she even called me Mr.Oscar! And after a few days, two people spend their holidays / vacations in our flat, whilst M&D were still away. So I took care of them, and they said I was a really good host!
Then M&D came back and bought me a scratchy tree house only for me alone!
And then I cut Mommy's fingertips open with my claws, only two, and this time even she admitted that it was an unfortunate accident!

So that was it, for the moment, and remember please tell us your opinion in a comment if I should continue to blog here or if I should move house to a very own blog! Thanks a bunch and now the promised second photo. Do you now understand why M&D say that I look sometimes like dead when I sleep?

I think you have to use whatever carrier that works best for you. I don't have an issue with Blogger, although I know some folks do. Hope you keep posting--just be sure to tell us where to find you!

I make sure, I let every one know! Thanks for your input! SY

Wow you were busy! It sounds like you have had a lot of fun with visits/trips/etc though. A lot of people to see.

We totally understand why you would want to move - if we didnt' already have so much on blogspot we would move too, but at this point it is easier to stay (and just yell at it sometimes). No matter what you pick we will be there to visit - just be sure that before you go you post a link to the new blog if you decide to go, so that we can find you again!

Hi Amy and friends, yes, very busy. Mommy says that my blog is still small enough to move it easily and yes, I hear her sometimes yelling at the computer blogspot thingie!

Oscar, you are a spoiled cat.
Maybe you need some nice doggy to play with (and he with you grrrr) and don't complain when he bites you...
Do you like to have a catnap in the microwave Oscar?.) let me know

Woof! Hi There .. I'm Sugar. LOVE your photo. My mom wanted to move my site to WP (cause she likes the look of the layout) but did not take the risk due to the (google) followers. So we just got our own domain name and just redesigned my blog (based on a template she got). Check out my post on Blog Makeover. If you have any question or help will be glad to help you. YES! Blogger seems to be easier ( i think it is for comfort reasons). We might be wrong in regards how to incorporate your google followers so try to do more research on that. Good Luck! Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

I say that if you can move your blog to a self-hosted Wordpress blog without too much trouble, do it! A few months ago, my human moved my site to a Wordpress blog format - my old format was all old school html, and it was a pain to update and not very bloggy. Now, THAT was a lot of trouble because all the old updates had to be manually input into a datafeed (7 years' worth)! I'm glad my human had to do all the work and not me! Yours will be MUCH easier to do, and your human should be able to do it fast enough so that it doesn't take away any of the time she spends catering to your every need. So yes, do it!

Hans, you are right, very spoiled, do you want to adopt me? Mommy says always she wants a dog and I think if she gets one - I will move out!!! She says her favorite dog would be a Czech Slovak wolf dog http://wolf-dog.info/, brrrr....

Hey Sugar! Mommy did a quick search and found this: http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/friendconnect/thread?tid=66c835424a9133ab&hl=en#all In all cases, your blog looks great, as long as you are happy it is the right blogging platform for you!

Oscar, Expat Cat said...

@Sparkle
That is one cool blog you have there! Yeah! I want one like these! Have to tell Mommy ;-)

Sher said...

Hi Mr. Oscar,
You should definitely keep writing! :) As to whether you stay or move--only you and your Mommy can decide what's best! I'll come and read your blog wherever it is! :)

Have a great day,
Auntie Sher :)

Two Sisters said...

We like your blog and would miss you if you left! If you decide to move the blog, please let us know so we can visit with you.

Fisher and Staff said...

OK - I am following you now (even though I am not even sure what I am doing there) so I don't miss your new adventures. That photo is so-o-o-o adorable!

Jen said...

Welcome back Oscar! I think you should blog wherever is easiest...life is complicated enough as it is. Besides, you can always post a redirect link here, right? (just don't forget to tell the bucket people :o)
Your sleeping pictures are adorable!
