Hello everybody!   I get to tell you about what has been going on this past week.   First off, I, Emily, have been insulted!  Mom laughed at me.  Can you believe it?  Here is what happened:  I was valiantly protecting my home from a vicious blue straw and, in the midst of our desperate battle, I apparently managed to turn a graceful somersault!  Instead of applauding my attempts to keep house and home safe the biped laughs at my acrobats.   I may forgive her if there is a treat in my immediate future!
 Mom bought this plaque one day when she went to the mall for groceries.  It's created by an artist called Kelly Rae Roberts.  She has one other picture by this lady.  Mom said the words on the picture "spoke" to her.
 Autumn is definitely here.   The mornings are cold and misty.   The leaves are turning all sorts of gold, cinnamon  and russet.  It's Mom's favorite time of the year!  Tomorrow, here in Canada, we will celebrate Thanksgiving.  There will be yummy foods (do you think us felines will get some extra treats, too?) and company through out the weekend.

We will close with a photo of Winston in his happy place.  Give this furry dude a cardboard box and he is one happy feline.  Mom had to take Oscar to the vet on Friday.  He has gained a bit of weight but they gave him some more antibiotic and took another sample to see how the infection is going...and we do want it go...go away completely!
All of us here, feline and human, wish everyone a lovely Sunday and a Happy Thanksgiving to their Canadian Readers.
