I spent the weekend in Lebanon, Ohio, with my sisters.
My niece, nephews, and their special friends joined us, and we ate, drank, and were merry.
We attended the Lebanon Horse Drawn Carriage Parade & Festival, for the 2nd year in a row.
We shopped, gabbed, snarked, giggled, and had a lovely weekend.
Thanks to my sis and bro-in-law for their terrific hospitality!

Here are a few images from the parade:

And, there was Magoo!

Magoo currently lives at my sister's house, but his mama is my niece.
Soon, she'll move into her new apartment, and Magoo is going with her!
She's created an Instagram account for his chonky handsomeness: @mrmagoodles.

When I arrived, I whispered to Magoo that he needed to up his game, since he was a stand in for my five cats at home.  Sure enough, he was a cat for the job!

His fur is bunny-soft, and while a large dude, he plays with abandon and there isn't a human that he doesn't enjoy.  He slept on my blanket-covered legs, and allowed me to carry him without a peep or a flick of whisker.

I loves me some MAGOO!!!


Update on Angel:
The veterinarian reports that her blood work was normal for everything except a low B12 level, which is a sign of intestinal problems.
An ultrasound is scheduled for next Monday, and then a consult with the vet.

Since she's been taking the Cerenia, she's been holding her meals inside, and wants to eat, eat, EAT!  The Hubby is carefully doling out small amounts of food many times a day, hoping to lessen any vomiting spells.
Thank you all for your concern, and I promise to report updates.


Paddy O'Malley will return to his properly scheduled post next week...LOL!


  1. If you ask us, we think Magoo was the highlight of the weekend! What a handsome dood!

  2. Glad Angel is doing better. It's no fun when our insides are wonky. Magoo, you're so cute! New adventures ahead! - Tom x

  3. Fun weekend with family and then there is Magoo. So handsome.

    Have a fabulous day and week. ♥

  4. Magoo is adorable!! And hope the best for Angel!! We are sending positive purrs!

  5. Looks like a fun weekend AND Magoo! :) What more could anybody ask!

  6. Thanks for the Magoo intro, I'll definitely follow on InstaGram, what a big love! It looks like you had a wonderful weekend, thanks for sharing the photos.

  7. You had all that fun and a Magoo too, how cool. I'm glad Angel got a not-so-bad blood report and we're sending purrs for a good ultrasound too.

  8. So glad Angel is feeling better! Magoo is too cute. I like the patio that Magoo is looking out upon!

  9. What a fun parade! And Magoo certainly was a good host.

    We're glad Angel is doing better. The mom gives us B12 shots regularly. Maybe Angel could benefit from it as well.

  10. Magoo has me by my hair on my head. I would snach him up in a nanosecond if I could. And look at that face of HIS, never mind yours in that picture!
    Angel darling little girl...your mom, Dad and Vet are going to get this fixed soonest! I guarantee. XXX

  11. I love carriage rides! And Magoo is a handsome boy. I hope the ultrasound shows something that can be dealt with.

  12. What a fun weekend! And see? We *knew* Magoo hadn't forsaken you!

    We're glad to hear Angel's doing better with her food.

  13. That looks like a fun time. Magoo is a cutie. And I am glad Angel is eating again. XO

  14. The parade looks like a lot of fun. Magoo is a very pretty kitty.

  15. Oh boy do I love the sound of the Clydesdales and they prance in the video. I love Gentle Giants.
    Magoo you are quite a looker too. Glad to hear you were able to fill in for the 5 she left at home.
    Hugs to Angel Cerenia is a blessing for the tum-tum
    Hugs Cecilia

    angel, we send st francis' blessings yur way; we dinna noe ya had been havin a time oh it... we hope ya get better feel better N stay better for like all time ♥♥♥♥♥

  17. Magoo looks very much like my Josie, with fewer tabby spots, but mostly white and with a ringed tail, just like my Chubs. Kea from "Musings..." depicted a cat in her neighbourhood once who looked like Josie and Magoo. I don't think it's a breed, but I believe there are a number of fur-patterns that are repeated. I think this is one.

  18. Oh Magoo, so adorable! That's good to hear that Angel is eating.

  19. You had a lovely weekend :) Magoo is cute!
    And I'm happy that Angel is getting better :)


Mee-row! Thanks for your comments; we LURV them! Purrr....
