Visit to New York

New York, New York! Multiple reasons why we were going to that exciting metropolis. Firstly, my cousin Charlotte wanted to visit her cousin, Mrs Perry, who lives in an apartment near the Central Park with her beans. Secondly, my new friends, Scylla and Charybdis, wanted to go shopping for clothes. Being young kitties who have never been away from home alone their moms were a bit worried, so Sassy and I decided we would chaperone them and also take the opportunity to catch up with our sissy Asta who lives there.

So here we were at the Ritz Charlton Hotel. Sassy and I stayed at the Ritz Charlton while the young kitties stayed with Charlotte's cousin whose apartment was across the Central Park. Asta, wishing to spend more time with us also moved into the hotel for the time that we were in New York even though her apartment was nearby.

The next day we met the younger kitties near their apartment and enjoyed the warmth of the early morning sun at the Central Park before getting dressed to go shopping. Asta decided to sleep in a bit and would meet us later.

The young kitties decided they would go shopping on the Fifth Avenue on their own while we older kitties would take it easy - meeting Asta to have a snack in the Park, doing a bit of jewellery shopping and having some time out for a chat over a leisurely lunch.

We then went back to the hotel to get changed for the show 'Wicked'......

Sassy friend's Donald insisted on us meeting him for dinner before attending our show. Oh well, seeing that he was acquainted with Sassy, we obliged..........

Here we gathered outside the theatre just before the show and coming down the grand staircase of the theatre during interval.......

The next day we all went to the Rockefellar Centre to have a look.....

The younger kitties continued their shopping spree while we were guests at a chat show in which we discussed the conceptual importance of the cat blogosphere in promoting goodwill among the furries and our experience as inter-species siblings.

This was followed by another show in which Sassy was asked to be the guest host. Please go to her blog for more details.

At the end we were shopped out and ready for home with many more bags than we came......

PS: We aren't telling anyone about all the fun things we did with Charlotte cause IF our Mommy found out about all the cute guys we were flirting with we would be in trouble

That is a very busy trip. My momma goes to NYC fairly often, but she doesn't look nearly as fashionable as you guys do.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

What a grerat trip you had. If we had known you were in the city we would have taken a train in to go shoping with you guys! Ma says kitties aren't allowed on trains but we know that is just silly talk.
