The Heat Is On

I'm enjoying my newest favorite spot in the house and wanted to share that with you. It is the heat register right next to the mom's chair. Not only to I get to be close to the mom, but she put down a soft blankie for me to snuggle up into, and she cannot resist giving me pets and kisses to me when she is near me, plus the mom decorated my blog for New Years. I am having a lazy day for sure. I haven't been able to visit as the folks have pretty much deserted me and are going to do so again . . . . dang holiday times!
. . . zzzzzzzzz . . . zzzzzzz . . .  sorry, let's see where was I? Oh, I remember the folks have pretty much dumped me and are busy this week too. Mom said they would be at home so that is good news but my visiting will have to wait until after the holidays. I cannot complain . . . zzzzzzz . . . . zzzzz . . . sorry again, as I am just going to be lazy while they are doing their thing.

Hope all of you had a wonderful holiday celebration with your family and loved ones. If you go out on New Year's eve please be careful. Miss visiting with you but will see you all next year. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

The Night Before Christmas

Tws the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature is stirring except . . .
. . . me thinking and wondering if Santa Paws will visit me. I think I have been a pretty good kittie all the year long . . . well except I just cannot not help giving the mom love bites that are too strong (I cannot help myself as I love her soooooooo much) and getting on the kitchen counter . . .
. . . When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter . . . I sprang to the window to see what was the matter .
. . . The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below, when what to my wondering kittie eyes should appear . . . OMC can it be?! YES! A miniture sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer. He is here! He is really here!!!! . . .
And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof the prancing and pawing of each little hoof! . . . He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work and filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk . . . he told me not to worry that I was a good kittie and my stocking was full! . .
. . . He sprang to his sleight, to his team gave a whistle and away they all flew like the down of a thistle. . .
. . . I heard him exclaim as he drove out of siegh . . .

Wishing everyone and their family a never-ending season of love and peace.

ps: Thank you to everyone for the beautiful Christmas cards via snail mail and email. I wanted to post the cards but time got away, once again. It was so nice of you to think of me. Mom has promised that she will soon visit with me again. Won't hold my breath until she does but hope to see you soon!!

Today isn't SUNday it's FUNday for me. The mom here has all kinds of neat things going on!

The mom has brought a giant claw scratcher into the house and put pretty lights on it plus all kinds of ornaments hanging on it that I can bap around whenever I want to . . . OK whenever she doesn't see me.

Then I got to meet a really neat new friend. She doesn't talk much but is a very nice reindeer that has brought with her lots of paper towels along for her visit . . .

. . . Miss Reindeer let me me play with the towels and I had so much fun hiding in them . . .

. . . there is just so much to do around here today I am wearing myself out. I am going to take a nap before I see what is in the red bin. Phew, I'm tired.

Hope you all are having a fun Sunday!

The Hand Game

I just love to play the hand game with my daddie and it is so extra special because the mom won't play it with me, she says that I get too rough.  She is wrong with that she is just a sissy! And super great news, dad is going on partial retirement and we will have more time together!!! Yeah!!!

To play the hand game I must get the dad's attention. I have jumped up on his lap and tried to be as cute as cute can be for me. He cannot resist me. I have him in my powers!

. . . the game is on and as you can clearly see I am letting him think that he has the upper hand, excuse the pun, but in truth I am in total control . . .

. . . now I try to capture his hand . . .

. . . wrap my paws around him, pulling down on his hand closer and closer to my mouth then I am able to chomp (lightly) on his hand . . .

 . . . Oh what fun this is! No hard feeling and time to get some scratch time from dad. Just love times like this!! Life is GREAT!!!!

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Things are starting to look like Christmas at my place. So much to do. So little time. First I want to thank Ann at Zoolatry for my beautiful banner. She also sent the mom here a beautifiul background which she wasn't able to figure out how to upload it. . . oh well . . . what can I say, good help is so hard to find  . . . Anyway, a big thank you to Zoolatry for all you do to help make our places look beautiful.

I told the mom I would help her wrap presents but figuring out which paper to use for which present is so hard and can make one soooooooooo tired . . .

. . . I must take a rest now if you will excuse me. Please mom no more papazzari!

Another Angel

It is with a heavy heart and many tears that I must let you know that my dear sweet nephew, Opus, was helped to the bridge this afternoon, his mom and grandmom were with him. We shall miss him so much but today he let us know that he was ready to join his brother, Roscoe. Now he is forever young and healthy, able to do the things that he loved to do that age had kept him from doing.

Thank you to everyone for all your kind words and prurrs when Opus's health would take a turn for the worse.

Love you forever and always, Opus.

Opus~Got Milk?

Today I am featuring my nephew, Opus. He is such a wonderful kittie and has had lots of health issues this past summer but finding a new vet has given him a new lease on life and the family is enjoying every moment we have with him as each day is a gift that we didn't think we would have. As you can see by the photos he is even more spoiled than I am . . . if you can believe that . . .

Getting just a tiny taste, as we know milk isn't a good thing for kitties.

Trying to reach that far away place in the glass.

Opus saying, "I think I can, I think I can, I know I can . . ."

Opus looking a lot like an alien.

I want to send special thanks to Jan at Jan's Funny Farm across the miles for all of her many hours of hard work in making our Tabby Cat Club Blog look so nice! It is purrrrect!!

Thanks for your help on this.

Honoring Our Veterans

Demilitarized Zone 1968

Giving thanks to all our veterans who are serving and served protecting our wonderful nation, especially my Daddie. He served in the army at the Joint Security Area in Korea as a Military Police Officer. Back in the old days our country had what was called the draft. Our country was involved with an unpopluar, though I think most would agree that all wars are unpopular but this one was especially bad, war and needed men to serve in the military. Dad was all signed up to go to college but he was drafted and had to go away from my mommie soon after they were married, they had to be seperated for a long time.
One night when my daddie had to go on patrol an angel was sitting on his shoulder and his life was spared when a terrible thing happened, four others were not so lucky that day. Four of our servicemen and friends of my daddie paid the ultimate price. To this day our family remembers that day and our heart is still heavy with sadness for those that were taken. Each and every day we are thankful that my daddie returned safely home.

There are no words that can truly say how much these brave men and woman are. To all our veterans that have served, are serving, and those now up in heaven I send you all a big THANK YOU!

What The Heck!

It's going to be a fun day, so I thought, as I discovered a new box sitting in the living room.
I keep a close eye on things because as soon as that box is empty I know it will be mine to play in. I don't know why the dad is taking time out to read a novel that came out of the box. I just want him to hurry up and empty the box out.
Now I am getting excited as things are coming out but I must say I am a little worried two. I don't think I like the looks of the thingie that was living in the box.
Heck with the box I say! What the heck!! They brought another sucker dooer to live in the house!!! Don't they know these things scare me to death. It isn't like they don't have enough of these monsters here. They already have a really big one.

I thought they loved me, why would they do something like this???? So much for the fun day.
