able to see our blog.  We know Google reader disappeared as of June 30, 2013.
Mom reads blogs the old fashion way
with a blog tab on the menu bar and we add blogs to 
it.  We have heard folks who don't use readers can still read ours but those who use readers cannot.
If you all can see this, please tell us what you
use in the comments?

Thank you 
Now for the regularly scheduled program!!!!


Mom recently bought me a new
'as seen on tv' water fountain...
According to Mom my original one is 11 years old and 
yellowing...BUTT I say it was fine!!
I was napping when she set it up...

I'm a cat I don't like change.

 It was spitting and sputtering water

 I was purrty darn sure mom did
something wrong so I read the directions
they said

for best results approach with caution

I never ever, no never put my nose any where

first giving it my signature 
BUDDY'S, Sassy and Zack's, MOM MS. KIT,
Maybe Madi will play with the new one and drink out of the old one.....she knows me well!!

 Lo and behold I decided to throw caution to the
wind and dive right in!!!!
 Mom boxed up old faithful
just in case I have a change of heart
but for now my new fountain is 
super duper Dandy!!

UPDATE:  JULY 27, 2013
MR. AS SEEN ON TVs went back to the store.


  1. Hooray, you are back on our dashboard!

    Madi, it must have been pretty cool to have two fountains for awhile. Too bad the As Seen on TV one quit working, it was pretty fancy smancy.
    When our Mama got our new fountain the first time she cleaned it she didn't know she was suppose to also clean the motor and almost sent it back until she read the instructions. Our mama is a little slow sometimes, cod love her.

  2. I use Feedly to get new blog posts and I've been getting yours regularly. Too bad your fountain quit working. It looked pretty awesome.

  3. I just read blogs in Blogger Dashboard. I can add non-blogger blogs to my reading list easily

  4. We too read blogs the 'old fashioned' way and have had no problems reading this one. What a fancy schmancy water fountain indeed. And I have to make do with a plain jane bowl.
    Toodle pip!
    PS Gail thanks your Mom for her v. kind email will reply soon.

  5. That would be right--whizz bang machine doesn't work for long. We only have an old ice cream container.

    We only use that thingy that comes with Blogger to read. And we see you loud and clear, well, clear anyway.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  6. Lucky mum didn't throw away old faithful. We read your blog on our blogger reader and we have had no problem. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  7. Mommy is using Feedly and you show up every time you post!
    Old is Gold! Thank goodness you still had your Old Faithful. They don't call them Old Faithful for nothing. :)

  8. WE have our blog list on our side bar and it is updated whenever a new post is put up.

    That is too bad the new fountain was a fail. Thank COD, you saved the old one.
    Hope all of you have a great day.

  9. We have your blog saved in blogger on the reading list there and have no problem seeing it.

    It is sad when new products fail us! Good thing you kept the old one! Lee and Phod who have a boring metal dish.

  10. Oh they just don't make them like they used to. You pop up on my blogger dashboard when you have a new post. I'm having no problem at all seeing you.

  11. I guess we use the old fashioned way , by having a reading list on my bloggie :)
    It work´s just fine and I see when ever you post something new on your blog.
    To bad the new waterfountain stoped work :(
    But good for you your mom have kept the old one :)

  12. For a couple of days I could not see your blog. But now today, BAM here you are and I can see it fine. MOM has no idea what we are using. She really is useless when it comes to this puter stuff. In any case I am glad I can see you once again.

  13. I have just the WP-Reader - that means I'm lost anyway hahaha. I'm glad old faithful is back . I dislike changings too.

  14. Hi Madi....You showed up in our Blogger reader and also our Feedly reader. No problems either way. Mom uses Feedly most of the time now.

    Sorry your new TOY didn't work for very long. They just don't make things like they used to.


  15. We see u ... just catching up with our filled (overflowing reader). Mom is a big fan of As Seen On TV products. My kitty fiends have those water fountain. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  16. Good news Madi...You're coming in loud and clear in Bloglovin'! Every post arrives right on time :) I think a burbling fountain would be more of a toy for Gizmo...He likes "still water" pawsonally...Good thing Momz saved Old Faithful (does O.F. include a geyser? :) )

  17. That's my kind of luck. Glad you kept the old one.

    I use the blog roll out of blogger, it shows the blogs that I follow.

  18. Sometimes old is better than new, heck at our house we drink out of a big bowl...lol....i can follow your blog we use the regular blogger that shows the blogs i follow.

  19. MOL LOL BOL I can't stop laughing long enough to type. the Mr as seen on TV set me off... all these things they show us almost never ever never work like they say they will. so glad your assistant kept the old one. i always do that with everything i buy because the newer better stuff is not always better...
    about the viewing problem. I use Feedly and it works fine I can see it in Digg Reader and anyone can read if they go to their Dashboard in Blogger, the list is always there if they can't see it anywhere else. of course if they are not using Blogger they will have no dashboard.

  20. I can read you loud and clear (thank goodness)! I am still reading my blogs the way I always have...through blogger. I don't get all this change business.

    I'm so glad your Mom had the wisdom to keep your old water fountain! She is one smart cookie! The pictures were lots of fun and worth a try at the new one though!

  21. Madi, my LLS, we use Feedly as our reader and we have no trouble seeing your blog. THANK COD!!! They just don't make things like they use to. :(

    Hugs, Laila, your LLS

  22. We use the old Regular Dashboard reader. We couldn't see you YESTERDAY butt we CAN today... We are HOPING that we do NOT have to do the Feedly or the Bloglovin thingys... we do NOT like change and having to learn new stuffs. We are gonna just wait this all out and see what happens.

    OMD your NEW fountain got Deaded... ALREADY and your OLD FAITHFUL geyser thingy has lasted ELEVEN (11) years... If it ain't broken ..don't replace it... beclaws NEW stuffs hardly EVER is as good as OLD FAITHFUL stuffs. Hope your mom can get her green papers BACK for that thingy.

  23. Some days we see you and some days we don't! It happens with all the blogs we follow. Sometimes we log on mid-afternoon and see like 15 posts from the morning we didn't see earlier! And that's in wordpress' reader. *sigh*

  24. Well Madi, we don't use a reader now the blogger one disappeared. Even finding the dashboard is a matter of luck for our dumb old ape. But we can see you and the new fountain just fine. What a shame it broke, just as you started to use it!

    Hurray for old faithfuls!

    Gerry & Mungo

  25. Madi, We just use the reading list in our blogger dashboard. Here is what we noticed about your Monday post. It actually appeared in our reading list Sat or Sun but when Mom clicked on it it said the post did not exist. So yesterday she had to back through the list to two days before and when she clicked on it the post was there as if it posted two days before.
    Bailey, Hazel & Greta

  26. Good thing Mom saved "Old Faithful", Madi!
    A kitty that plays with water, who'd a thunk it!
    I read the blogs the old fashioned way, like Mom, so we've been able to read your blog every day!
    Hugs and nose taps,
    Kathy and Molly

  27. We sure are happy we see your blog. Every mayor should have their own cool fountain
    Benny & Lily

  28. I can see your blog just fine!

    Wow - short-lived fountain! Hopefully they replace it with one that doesn't poop out so fast!

  29. That looks sooooo cool! And I can't believe you do a paw test! Ok...it is offcial...you are a Kool Kat!

  31. You can't trust new stuff! It's always good to keep Old Faithful around!

  32. Stoopid made for TV stuff. Mommy bought those magic towels once...ONCE.

  33. Your post was fine today Madi.
    We love your new fountain, hope you soon get used to it. Bet Madame Bridget would love one of those - she drinks more than a camel!

  34. Old is sometimes good, too! You have to be very wary of any new stuff the peeps bring home.

    Happy Tuesday to my favorite tuxie! XOXO from your favorite mancat, Prancer Pie.

  35. As embarrassing as it is to us, our mom is old-school too and doesn't use a reader. You're coming in loud and clear as always! :)

    Yippee for backup fountains. We don't even want to think what might happen if your ol' trusty one failed! Purrs...

  36. That new fountain looks so nice pretty Madi! Hey, we use Feedly and you are showing up just fine!

  37. Your back gurl!!! You were all gones from my Bloggie list, butts your back today!!
    Oh, your Moms does what my Mom does..don't throw anything away until you know the new one won't die on you!!! Yups, this motto has served her well through the years!
    I did like it though. Maybe another brand will work betters...
    Ruby ♥

  38. Miss Madi we are using Feedly and you show up just fine in fact we also have Blog Lovin and you show up great in that too!

    Oh goodness it's a a good thing Mom kept Old Faithful!

  39. Oh no, where is quality these days? We read blogs from the reader in blogger itself and (if we have it up to date) the list on the blog under blogs we read. We see your bloggy just fine!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  40. Too bad your fancy schmancy watering thingy didn't last long. We use Feedly to read your blog and haven't missed a word.

    Millie & Walter

  41. I'm currently using Feedly and don't think I've missed any posts. Madi...your momma was smart to hold on to Old Faithful. Too bad about the new one.

  42. Howdy Madi, we can read ya ok. We use some Blogger reader thingy. Love your water drink fountain. We think our sissy could do with one of those cause she does not like to drink water from her bowl, just the jug in the sink or she licks the taps (ewwwww) or she sometimes has a nice refreshing drink from the toilet (double ewwwwwww!). Take care little mate. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  43. BOL - those as seen on TV's" are something else, aren't they?

    Mom has been using both The Old Reader and Feedly. The Old Reader has had some ups and downs but so far Feedly seems OK - and you showed up just as beautiful as ever.

    Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

  44. Madi, we see you here in Bloglovin and we see you in Feedly. We did not see you show up in Old Reader. That's right, the mom uses all those readers to make sure we don't miss anybuddy's blog.

  45. That fountain looks fun, I love playing in water.

  46. I can see you fine, I get your posts through bloglovin, but mummy has been slack and I haven't been able to visit anyone lately :-(

  47. I can't believe it stopped working after such a short time, that's terrible!!! Hope they gave you another one :-)

    I use the "my blogs" tab on blogger to see everyone's blog that I follow. I have no idea what "reader" is so I guess I can't miss it now that it is gone.

  48. I can see you today Madi but think I am not getting updates from lots of blogs. I am using a mixture of Old Reader and Dashboard reading list but am only getting 30 or so updates a day instead of the usual 60+.

  49. Fancy Schmancy did not meet quality control!
    Thanks Madi for stopping by my blog. Sorry we have not been around but we have had the sickies. I had a stress fracture in
    in my leg/paw which is better but Lee is still not top notch.
    I have a new follower whose license place is Skotty, she had a scotty. I thought of you and how you watch license plates.
    Sweet William The Scot


Please leave a meow or bark for Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
