Looking Back at 2015 – My Tops and Favorites

ChristyHappy New Years Eve! Today, we say goodbye to 2015 as 2016 peeks around the corner. Mom says time is just flying by. I don’t really get that, but I know it means something to the humans.

It’s hard to believe I am already a third of the way into my second year of blogging. For my blogoversary in August, I wrote a review of my first year, highlighting some of my accomplishments. It was my third most popular post of the year. With 2015 coming to an end, since my blogoversary post looked at accomplishments, I thought I would look at some statistics for the year.

It came as no surprise that my top post for the year was for the Continue reading

Our Secret Paws Finally Revealed

Happy Monday my friends! I hope you all had a most wonderful Christmas. I know we did.

On Christmas Day, mom finally let us open our Secret Paws box. We were so excited to find out it came from our friends Gus, Jaq, Pearl and their human mom Jenny from As the World Purrs. Thank you so much!

First, of course, someone had to inspect the box and its wrapped contents. I let Ocean have that honor.

Artful Holiday Cards

We are going to cheat a little for Caturday Art today. Mom hasn’t been feeling well and we are so behind on posting. We have caught up a little on commenting but are taking the easy way out on today’s post.

Mom was really being lazy not feeling well when she first tried to do this one for our e-card. She decided she had to find better photos of us, manipulate them in Photoshop so that they were light enough and make a more personalized card.

Caturday Art: Artful Holiday CardsI guess I should give her some credit. She got my snail mail cards mailed earlier than she has ever mailed her own cards (which she hasn’t sent in years) and got my Secret Paws mailed by the recommended … Continue reading

We Have Our Very First Christmas Tree!

Me, Christy, sitting under my very first Christmas tree

Me, Christy, and Echo under the Christmas treeYes, we have a tree. Echo, Ocean and I have been alive and living with mom for seven Christmases and this is our very first Christmas tree. There was a good reason though, I guess, that we didn’t have one all those years. For the first five Christmases, mom was fostering kittens, lots of kittens, and knew a tree was not a good idea with all of them around.

In the beginning, we were those foster kittens. As you may know, Echo and Ocean were mom’s first two foster kitties. I came along a few weeks later. (There were several other kittens between Ocean and me.) The three of us were all a … Continue reading

Flat Andy’s Winning Visit

Christy and Flat Andy

A few weeks ago, Flat Andy, one of my Cat Scout friends, arrived for a visit all the way from Ashtabula, Ohio. That’s a long way to travel, over 2400 miles, so you can imagine that he was pretty tired when he got here. My silly brofurs, Echo and Ocean, wanted to meet him right away instead of giving him some time to rest.

Echo showed him one of his favorite perches in front of our favorite window — yes, it’s everyone’s favorite window!

Echo and Flat AndyOcean was curled up in one of the little pods on the big tree and wanted Andy to join him there. Good thing Flat Andy is skinny or he would never have fit!
