Asta and Ollie decided to change into another dress in the course of the party and here we are, the gang having a group shot at the corner. The party venue and decoration are just superb, don't you think?

A surprise party for Ollie

My good furriend Opus is hosting a surprise birthday party for his sister Ollie at his home in Italy. It is a weekend-long party starting Friday. Please go over to help this cutie celebrate her 8th birthday tomorrow. First, do visit them today and read her heart-warming adoption story and subsequent journey from the US to Italy where she became a treasured member of the family.

The party has a 50's theme and here I am dressed in my poodle skirt (courtesy of Opus), all ready to party. Please join us at the party tomorrow!!!!

Sulky Saturday

I am sulking for various reasons:

1. That SS of mine is not helping with blogging or visiting. She is lazy/busy with work. Hey, isn't she supposed to be working for me?

2. Every time she emerges from her study, she is after me with the hated comb, muttering stuff about hairball prevention. Ouch! Has she ever asked me whether I prefer vomiting up the hairballs to being combed and defloofed? Nope.

3. Visitors - most are nice and pay me a lot of attention but some are downright suspicious. One in particular....

If SS is as busy as she says, why is she spending time with this ginger and white mutt and cooing 'Pomelo, Pomelo'?

Enough said. I am going into hiding until dinner time.

Aftermath of our Niagara adventures

Well, how many of you resisted the temptation to go to Gracie's or Karl's to find out what happened?

In any case despite the warning sign,

We couldn't resist taking a ride after we saw what Gracie did.....

As a result......

Yes, we were rescued .....

But got thoroughly wet and cold.....

Well, well, well, I guess I wouldn't want to do it again. The adrenaline rush was just a little too much for this little kittie.

Happy Valentine's Day

It’s that time of the year again. The gang decides that we should all go to somewhere romantic and exciting for Valentine’s Day. The obvious choice is the majestic Niagara Falls.

Here we are, all packed into the Magic Van with our sweethearts heading for the Falls when Karl spots a roadside shop selling barrels and other things and suggests that we stop for a stretch of legs. Gracie seems to be quite taken with the barrels and insists that we should get some. Whatever for? This kitty decides to keep quiet and let the shopaholics have their way.

Presently, we arrive at the hotel which is situated right by the Falls. Despite the cold weather outside the interior is quite warm and some of us quickly strip down to our natural fur coat.

Just look at our room – magnifico!!!!

After a little rest, Socks and I decide to experience the Falls by ourselves at close quarters….

The gang regroups and we set out to check out the Falls on land and from the air ……

We return to the hotel and we girls take the opportunity to chat before the evening activities....

In the evening, we watch the fireworks from the comfort of our room....................

For more takes our adventure, please head to Karl's, Gracie's, Opus and Ollie's, Socks's, Asta's blogs.

Pomelo at three months

Do you remember Pomelo? He made his first appearance here, at six weeks old, in November when he was first adopted by his mom, a family friend of SS. Here he is again, at about three months. Isn't he a cutie?
His family will be going to New Zealand next week and he will be coming to us for a short holiday. So I am sure you will be seeing more of him soon. SS is worried that I won't like another kitty coming to the house, seeing that I have been the only cat in the household for more than 8 years. He is an indoor-only kitty because his folks live in an apartment, and will not be let out to the garden during his stay.
