Happy New Year!

To celebrate the ending of one decade and the beginning of new one, we are posting baby photos of the "kids". Most of our cats were found, rescued or adopted at about 6 months or older so we don't have many kitten photos.

This New Year's Eve is also a "blue moon" the second full moon in the same month. Here's some interesting astrological info from an online article....

Astrologically the energy of the full moon works to integrate and harmonize the contradictions in the self and others. During a full moon, the seeds sown at the last new moon are ready to be harvested and utilized. Traditionally, the full moon is seen as a time for meditation and particularly for personal issues and global concerns.

During the blue moon this vibration is said to be three-fold. In some cultures the second full moon was considered a very holy and auspicious day. A time when the veil between heaven and earth is thin and the ability to communicate with the gods and goddess is very powerful. It is considered a very spiritually significant time for prayer and meditation going back thousands of years.

Wishing you all another year of friendship, health, prosperity and love. We have enjoyed getting to know you all! Happy New Year!!!!!

Christmas Ice Storm

Sorry we haven't been visiting you all but we got hit with an ice storm on Christmas eve just a week after the 14" snow storm! This was not expected - we were supposed to get rain or a little freezing rain! It knocked power off for days for all of us in our town and in the high mountains.

Mom made nice snuggle spots for all of us with lots of fleece blankets over us to keep us warm. We don't have a wood stove or any back-up heat for times like this.

These show the damage to the roads going out of our house in both directions! The tree crews had to come and cut all the downed trees before the power crews could even reach us.

It was hard on the older cats and they were showing signs of stress - runny eyes and shivering even with all our blankets. It got down to 38 degrees in the house so the beans went out and got a generator. Boy were we happy to have heat back. We expect more snow this week but this time we are prepared!

Happy Holidays!

It's Christmas Eve and a Thursday - very appropriate. We are thankful that we got thru the snow storm in one piece. It will definitely be a holiday to remember....

We were snowed in for three days but at least had electric power, so many didn't....our tree was up but all our decorations were snowed in our storage unit the next town over...after calling them for days we decided to go ahead and do the tree anyway. Finding lights was a problem Mom didn't anticipate. All the stores were completely sold out. We did find some LED lights at Home Depot. A very cold icy light but they did the trick.

To decorate we used dried flowers, candy canes, beads from the Dollar store, Pop's cookie cutters with red ribbon, and black and white photos printed wallet size and backed with card stock.

Mamacita checking out the gifts under the tree.

The finished tree - not bad!

Have a safe and warm Christmas and thank you all for sharing your adventures with us all year. We have met so many kind people and critters. Mom will be by to visit after the weekend is over - she has to work until Sunday.

Snowed In! (Photo Hunt - Fast)

We are all snowed in here in Western NC. This is what our driveway looked like when the storm started!
We are playing Photo Hunt today and the word is fast - this snow came down fast and accumulated fast!

Here is me Tabitha checking out the snow stuff Mom dragged in on her feet. Our shelter is nice and snug.

I don't think I like this cold white stuff!

It snowed all through the night - big wet flakes.

And this is what it looked like this morning! We got at least a foot of snow, maybe more!

And another thing...that flashy box is not my favorite either! is one good pose but that is it for today! Happy Holidays and Happy Caturday too!

Cats on Tuesday with Yoko.

In my younger days I loved to get up high on things..the higher the better! Here I am on the fridge in our Florida house! The blue feather toy was what I was after - Mom kept it up there so we couldn't get it on our own. That didn't stop me!

I love to look down on everybody. This also gets me out of harm's way from my older sister Chica who always picked on me!

Now that I am 16, I take it easy and don't climb up too much anymore! I pretty much sleep all the time.
