Magoo, Other Ohio Cats, and Horses

My niece found Magoo as a kitten, wandering in the yard.  He LURVs his people, and any other human who comes along.  I've posted about him before:

Magoo claimed my mother's lap immediately!
Magoo on my lap
(Note the cat scarf...)
Magoo sleeping on nephew

Magoo in the arms of his mom!
We didn't just stay inside just to play with Magoo, although I spent a lot of time with the 'chonky boi'!  While shopping in Lebanon's historic downtown, I found other cats:

I would have purchased this in a heartbeat, but couldn't do $150!

Photo of bird in a ceramic cat's mouth was for sale

This groovy statue sat on the counter at a sandwich shop, but I'm thinking that there are too many toes on each paw...

An honest-to-gosh shop cat!
After this image was snapped, said cat disappeared from view
After I spent all of my money (a pair of shoes, organic lotion, and the black cat statue from yesterday's post but no scarves), we stood in the rain to watch the daytime Lebanon Horse Drawn Carriage Parade.

One horse pulls a carriage


Mini-horse and rider!
Wells Fargo coach, pulled by four horses
Old-fashioned delivery truck!
We went in the evening to watch the nighttime parade, as horses and carriages were adorned with lights and jingle bells galore!  Here is a taste of the fun:


Needless to say, leaving my family and Magoo behind was difficult to do, and plans are to drive back again in the spring.

Magoo is one lucky Chunky Boi and handsome too.
thank you for sharing the lovely photos of your celebration with your beautiful family.

OMCs you saw the Wells Fargo wagon and horses. The Kroger horses look like a type of Draft horses
Fun fun fun

Magoo is such a handsome boy! It's funny how just the right cat comes into our lives at just the right time.

NOTHING like those horse clip clops! Magoo! What a doll
And yes Bear, is Zach's adoptee. Not a foster.
He is struggling a tad with ear mites and infection. I contacted the shelter today. They apologized profusely that they neglected to tell us about his ears and did not give us the meds to finish. Poor Bear
They gave us oral meds, ear drops and Frontline. He's so darn cute. I hope his ears LOOK better soon. Nurse Grandma here wants to go to Chicago and clean it all out........but Zach will take good care of his Bear We promptly mailed out the meds and instrutctions.
