Purry New Year Blessings (and Purrs Please)

 Good morning from Emily and Oscar!  We hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year.   We send our gentlest purrs out to everyone!  Now that the festive season is "officially" over our Mom person has slowed down a little bit.   She was fighting some sort of bug for the last week or so....
 The Mom attempted to make apple cinnamon pancakes ....back to the drawing board for her!  It was O.K. but nothing special.  However, there were other things to be thankful for
 Her friend, K, got this adorable little baby otter puppet.   Mom was smitten with that little critter!
Speaking of critters....
 This plump squirrel made Mom laugh.  She took a walk on Christmas morning and saw this little dude!  Maybe the peanut was a present, eh!   =)
 Winston and Oscar now!  We are tuckered out from the festivities!  Other things Mom was thankful for--the drive to family for Christmas Day (which they celebrate on Boxing Day) was made, for the most part, safe and sound.  The weather in the morning was blustery!
 Brrrr....blowing snow across the fields!  The ride back was very bad fog.  Mom was grateful for the safe journey both ways.
 She was also thankful for her Christmas Day visit to some kind hearted friends who invited her to dinner.   They are amazing cooks and bakers and even sent her home with some delicious yums.
 Emily likes to watch the snow fall from the big window in the living/dining room.  Mom likes to walk in it.   When she is not in a hurry to get somewhere, the Mom likes taking photos of the wonderland.
 This is Miss Pearl--she belongs to our Mom's Mom.  Miss Pearl has been living with Grandma since the end of August.  After a bit of a rocky start, wherein Miss Pearl had to train Grandma, they seem to be getting along well!  Our Mom said Miss Pearl loved to cuddle!   We hope our Mom isn't getting ideas!   We cuddle when, and if, we are good and ready. 
So-you see, many things to be thankful for as we start off the New Year.
We all need a bit of light, help along the way, yes?
 We are thankful to all you cat/pet bloggers out there.  We know our Mom is thankful for your visits, expertise and support!

We wondered, with that in mind, if you could send a few purrs over to Oscar.   On December 31st, Mom had to take him to see our vet, Dr. B., he is still there now.   Dr. B is fixing him up.  She is giving him fluids and adjusting his thyroid medication.   Mom misses seeing him on the chair.  She is thankful that the vet was still open when the "incident" happened and that everybody was so understanding when Mom had to cancel their plans that afternoon.
Oscar is getting on in years, almost 19 years old, but we are hoping to see him home soon.
Purrs to everyone for a New Year filled with blessings.
Oscar, Winston and Emily
and their Mom, Maggie.
