Oscar kitty here. Mom is feeling wiped.
She just got home from work and it was very busy. She just wants to rest and relax. No gallivanting for her!
Happy New Years to you all!

Kitty Butt

Kitty treat search by cherithsky

I went in to the living room yesterday to find this-Winston's furry butt sticking up in the air as he rooted frantically through the sofa pillows =)
Crazy cat.
Earlier that day, I had brought Oscar a few treats as he reclined on the back of the sofa. I'm guessing one or two of them must have fallen behind the pillows.
No worries, though, Winston kitty managed to retrieve the lost, neglected treats.
My hero!

The Christmas toy

Winston kitty here!
I tried to pretend I didn't care about my new toy at first. That didn't last long =)
Comer here little mousie.
Hope you all had a lovely, catnip filled Christmas!

Ha-little mousie doesn't stand a chance!

A Christmas Eve story

A Christmas Eve story by cherithsky
A Christmas Eve story, a photo by cherithsky on Flickr.
Once upon a Christmas Ever there was a girl who lived with her family in a small town. Though the family loved each other-life was hard and often there were fights. The girl wished that everyone would get along--but frequently the atmosphere in the home was strained and bitter. On this particular Christmas eve the young girl had tried to make the house cozy and welcoming-but old habits are hard to break, and harsh words broke out of angry hearts. She was bitterly hurt that her efforts were worth nothing, and went to bed early, and cried herself to sleep. A few hours later she woke up to a cold, dark and hollow quiet of a house. This empty dark was not what had woken the girl--rather-she strained to hear what she thought were angel voices.. ...
Brushing away the last bits of a deep sleep, she walked to the window-there was a bright moon in the sky-and it shone on the snow covering the lawn. No angels--but--facing the house-the dark, quiet house--were 3 people with the last few words of a carol coming from their lips. Already they were turning to leave before she realized they were carolers. She went back to bed-quieter in heart.
Years later the girl-now officially a grown up-often wonders about that night. She doesn't doubt she saw the singers-though she can not remember the song they sang. Their song solved no problems. But the event was more than what it seemed
and she finally concluded that even in the darkest of times-when you are heart hurt and tired--there are songs or lights--to help you on the journey.
So-whether you are the bringer of songs or the hearer of songs
God bless
and Merry Christmas

Cold Winter's Day

Today it really felt like winter-brrrr-you could hear the wind howling against the walls.  
Now would be a good time for a nice mug of hot apple cider   =)

Then, if the felines would cooperate, a kitty snuggle by the tree.   Pose nicely, Oscar kitty.  
Enjoy a quiet, winter's evening, everyone!

Wreck the halls

Wreck the halls with two cats running,
Fur goes flying, lamps get done in,
Tumbling swiftly down the stairway,
Fa-la-la, la-la-la, la,la,la.
Woe to those who get in their way,
Catmas Carols

Christmas tizzy

So many things to do-ornaments to smack, trees to knock over, wrapping paper to shred-which should Winston do first ;)

Better not pout, Winston!!

Christmas trees are a source of constant temptation to the Winston kitty.
This year, I only put up lights and tiny stuffed animals on the tree. If it gets knocked over, then none of the decorations should (theoretically) break!

Christmas thoughts

Just another quick post as I'm borrowing a computer. Mine is still in the shop.
I've been feeling frantic lately, not the quiet moments of reflection and peace I had been secretyly hoping for !
Last night, though, I was able to relax with the my purry felines and enjoy the carols and Christmas lights .
I think that sometimes, you really do need to make time for these momenets.
Hope to catch up with everyone's blogs when my own computer is up and running again.
Feline Christmas purrs to you all.

Christmas quiet...

At least, that is what I am yearning for today =) A good book, a snuggly cat and a cup of tea. I'm thinking a Christmas cookie is in order, too.
Have a lovely day!

"I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me all at once"

Oscar kitty here again. I know i look scary here but really I was just yawning.
Mumm's computer is now in the shop. She feels how I look in this photo! (he he-figure that one out, feeble humans!) Anyway, she is on a long work week and has a broken down computer. I'm a bit concerned this stress will affect her ability to feed me, clean my litter boxes, brush me, hug me, and tell me what a handsome boy I am. *it's so not easy being a kitty!*

Just a quick announcement from Oscar kitty. Mom's computer is not working and she is fretting big time about it.
I'm trying to get her to relax but so far she is just not listening.
*kitty sigh*

Back to work Monday

The staycation was amazing-quiet, restful  =)  There was a beautiful, mysterious frost one morning.  I stayed out taking photos till my fingers went numb with the cold!
I went out with some friends for brunch on Saturday morning.  It was delicious!  I went back for another scone!
Oscar kitty says, "Don't worry, Mum.  I'll keep a place on the sofa warm for you.  Now you go to work so you can afford to buy me more of my expensive kibbles!

Frugal Friday

Winston kitty here.  
Here to report on Mom's staycation-specifically, Friday!

 Mum was all in a dither because her Mom came for a visit yesterday and they did a bit of shopping.  They went to the Thrift Store and saw some mighty fine deals.

They stayed over two hours and then finished off with a happy meal at Micky Dees!

Mom loved the toy in her  happy meal =)
You can click on the photo to make this collage bigger.  Mom still can't figure out this blog posting design!
