Purring for Sweet Praline

By now most of the regulars from the CB would have heard about sweet Praline's health problem. We are very sad about it as she is one of our dearest furriends and we hope that she and her mommy would enjoy a lot more snuggly time together. It is good that she is eating well and continues to pester her mom for treats!

Yesterday, a large envelope arrived from Praline to me. It's a calendar that I won in her 1000th post giveaway. Thanks ++++, sweetie!!

Now, I can see some of my furriends from the CB everyday and will remember the giver whenever I see it.

Lucky kitty

I have been very lucky lately with lovely winnings and gifts coming through the post to the extent that our postman asked whether it was my birthday.

First, cute KC (no introduction needed) sent me a parcel that contains a beautiful purple scarf (it's behind my head, biggify the pic if you can't see it), a CB card with her pretty self on it and a Texan dictionary card.....

What, SS? You're keeping the scarf?????? But, but, but, it's for ME!!!! Said so on the parcel. Oh well, I guess you can have it, since I didn't get you anything for your birthday and winter is coming.

I also won "the Natural Cat" book in a recent contest by Liz the Cat.....

It contains lots of good advice on cat care, nutrition and promotes the use of natural therapy.

Wordy Wednesday Challenge 2011

I’m playing WWC2011 with The Cat Blogosphere!

From a stray kitty who had to shelter under parked cars and scavenge for food to a pampered kitty in a safe, warm home with loving humans, I am Contented and wish the same to all those who are out there.

Many thanks to Mom Ann at Zoolatry and Mom Judi who is owned by the handsome Sammy and Andy for making my Word and for being my friends all these blogging years.

Farewell Mickey

It's with a heavy heart that I write this post. One of the best loved mancat in the CB and my old furriend, Mickey, has run off to the Bridge. He was one of our oldest blogging furriends and we have enjoyed visiting him a lot.

Farewell Mickey, run free. One day we will meet again. Meanwhile, we will miss you, a lot.

We would also like to purr and pray for all those affected by earthquakes and resulting tsunamis, not just in Japan but also southern China. The plight in China has largely been overshadowed by the events in Japan. However, it is not less urgent and difficult in human terms.

Thursday in the garden

This February is one of the hottest and driest on record. Our garden has not come up well with only the natives and the flowering trees still performing.

This is the jasmine tree with its very fragrant flowers. Does anyone know the name of the tree with the pretty pink flowers? We have had these for a long time.

This is a native plant. They did very well last year but due to neglect there are fewer blooms this year.

This is just to show that despite my frail condition, I still take my gardening duties very seriously....

Thursday in (someone else's) garden

It's been hot here and my furriend Penelope invited me to visit her place to chill out. Never having seen snow before I embarked on this adventure.....

Brrrrrrrr, do I really want to go out there?

OK, just this one more pose and I am back in the house to toast my butt.....

If you don't know Penelope and her family, please go and visit them here. They live a a very cosy cottage and have a lovely garden.
