On the last day of 2023:
If you are out and about on this night, please remember to be careful out there, as your furbabies are counting on you to come home to them.

For Caturday, we used Lunapic to artify a recent photo of Manny and Chili Bruce snuggling inside The Hubby's coat, tossed upon a chair; Do-fade filter.

There is something very special about Da Boyz when they appear as if one cat with two heads, or have too many limbs, or more ears than normal.

We often pick up a paw or follow a tailio, to figure out who is who, and which body part belongs to whom.

While researching synonyms for 'twin', I found the term doublet: a pair of like things; couple.

Our two are so very, very special.

Becoming Cats

The Hubby and I are getting lots of rest.

Guess we are acting like cats, with excellent examples to emulate:
Chili Bruce and Manny (showing his 'underwear').
Sweetie, almost always in her heated Sweetie Spa beddy.
The weather has been dreary, so no looking out the windows to wish we could go outside and play!
Thanks to all for the get well messages; we are improving.

Well, my first positive Covid test.
Thankfully, we did NOT attend our family Christmas meal; I thought it was allergies, but The Hubby's symptoms were suspicious (intestinal woes, coughing, sneezing, heavy chest, headache).

Didn't test until yesterday.

Have such an attentive nurse cat, who thoughtfully puts her posterior in my face as I rest.

Yep, thankful for Sweetie's helpfulness.

My symptoms: stuffy nose, lethargy.

Oh my goodness, guess I'll read a book...or five.📚

Edit: Sweetie continues to claim my body as her purrsonal sleeping spot; I wake up with her sprawled across me.❤️

A few ha-ha's for your entertainment.

Yes, we all know that a cat eating tinsel is VERY DANGEROUS

...the night before Catmas,

and up in the sky!

Some creatures were stirring...

But I don't believe my eyes!
Tripping balls
Am always gonna sneak a Stonehenge pic in!
The Jolly Old Elf has got some serious wing power now!
We're all tripping...

Is that even a modern term anymore?

Spaced out
Away with the fairies
On cloud nine
Melting Face

Well, that's what I was told...have no purrsonal experience...that I can remember...

Snow Prints

It's Caturday.

Cat paw prints through the backyard snow, probably made by Paddy O'Malley.❄

Color photo made black-and-white for a dramatic touch.

The Long and The Short of It

Oh.  Yay.  It's officially Winter.


Excited beyond belief.

But, worth a few giggles...
Ginger kitty, doing a selfie at Stonehenge
Sea Jerky Henge
Cracker Henge or Shortbread Henge

The world 'solstice' comes from the Latin 'solstitium', meaning 'Sun stands still', because the apparent movement of the Sun's path north or south stops before changing direction. 

At the winter solstice, the apparent position of the Sun reaches its most southerly point against the background stars.

Winter begins at:

Wed, Jun 21, 2023, 8:57 AM Easter Island Time

Thursday, December 21, 2023, at 10:27 PM Eastern Standard Time

Fri, Dec 22, 2023, 4:27 AM Central European Time

Thu, Jun 22, 2023, 12:57 AM Eastern Australian Time

Here's a thought...now that it's officially Winter, that means Spring is NEXT!


Something to be thankful for on the longest night of the year, after the shortest day.

Quiet and Loud

It's Sweetnesday!

The first video is quiet; Sweetie squeakily snoring.
Turn down the volume on this second video; Sweetie is yelling her head off!
For a wee kitty, she's got some powerful vocal cords.

White Whisker Days

It's Twozday, and let's step back again to December, 2017.

Manny and Chili Bruce were just discovering their furrever home.
Chili Bruce, still had that one white whisker.
Always waiting at a closed door, hoping it will open!
 They were so adorable then, and continue that habit.

Furred for Cold

It's PO'Monday, and 17 December, 2017:

Pretty good snowfall the day before, yet Celestial Pommy simply carries on as usual.

This last shot shows his thick winter coat.

Random Catty Items

You just never know what cat craziness we'll get into, if left unsupervised...
New tat: crescent moon, cuddling a black cat.
Same ink artist as my Tatty O'Malley design.
Sweetie left a smiley face pattern.
I mistakenly purchased shreds instead of pate; she licks the liquid and leaves the meat chunks.
Yes, punch it!

However, I work Monday through Thursday only this week, then the office is closed Friday through Monday, 1 January.

What other cat craziness is in the offing?

Bright Eyes

It's Caturday!

Yesterday, Sly visited me as I walked past his house.

I artified using Prisma Hot Tea filter; he's so handsome!

21 May is also International Tea Day.

Okay with me; I ❤️ tea.

Earl Grey and Moroccan Mint Tea are my favorites.

A few cute tea-themed images for your amusement:
