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

No White Christmas

No white Christmas - it's only frost!When we woke up this morning, there was white stuff all over our lawn. Mom says it is not snow, just frost. It may not be a white Christmas but it is the closest we are going to get — at least for this year. It has been raining off and on for weeks but never when it is cold enough to snow. Mom says it has to be colder for the rain to turn to snow. Wow, weird. It rained yesterday afternoon but it was in the 40s. Last night, it got down to 29 but no rain. Mouses, as Nissy would say.

 

 

We don’t really know what snow is. Mom has had white Christmases when she … Continue reading

Caturday Art: Merry Christmas

Today’s project is doing double duty. It is our Caturday Art submission as well as our online Christmas card. It was all done in Photoshop Elements with multiple steps and multiple layers but nothing spectacular.

Merry ChristmasWishing you all the happiest of holidays. I will be grateful to be celebrating the holidays with all of you!
