Diva Charlotte for Boolatry

It's been some time since we last post.  A lot has been happening at our place that is keeping SS extra busy. 

First of all, Charlotte is still here. Surprise, surprise!!!  The Zoolatry girls have kindly invited Charlottte to their Boolatry event.  Diva Charlotte is never one to say no to an evening of glam.  Here she is, posing away.......

Thank you, Miss Ann, for the lovely photo.  Charlotte is feeling very pampered.

MoMo's Bridge Anniversary

It is hard to believe that MoMo has been gone for one year.  Her presence is still felt around the garden and house, especially places where she loved to curl up and purr.  At times, I would call out her name when I came home and expected her to come around the corner, emerge from under the desk or peer down from the roof.

Since you have been gone, many of your furriends have followed you to the Bridge, the most recent being the beautiful Penelope.  I hope you are all having fun at the Bridge, until one day when we will all meet again.

This is the memorial fountain just in front of your resting place under the flowering poinsettia.

You used to lie in there, sunning yourself under blue skies, watching the butterflies fluttering and the birdies chirping away on the Jacaranda tree.  The Christmas cacti and poinsettia are flowering as they were when you left us this time last year.

                                                              Your first winter with us

                                                                Sunning your floofy belly

                                                                  Climbing the Jacaranda

                                              Keeping me company while I worked on my thesis

Missing you so much, my sweet little one......

Belly up

The cold weather is descending on us and the days are distinctly shorter; the first winter snow has fallen on the mountains.  Winter are wet months for us, so whenever there is a chance for sunning my belly, I take it.

Yes, I am still here.  Looks like I am not going anywhere in a hurry.

The party goes on....

OK, we were late but we don't let that stop us from partying.  In my case, not even the fact that I am technically an angel.

Ole!!!  ::clap, clap, clap.  Stomp, Stomp, Stomp.  Clap-clap:: 


That cloud is a little soft.  Have to be careful.  Need to look after my halo as well.  I was told one halo for each angel, and no re-issue if I lose it.  Drats!

Help yourselves to the nip-infused sangria and seafood paella.  More tapas on the way.

Welcome party at the Netherlands

Since I, MoMo, went to the Bridge last year we have been very quiet.  However an occasion has arisen and the gang is together again, celebrating the arrival of a new member of Ruis's family in the Netherlands.  Sergi is a 3 year-old podenco who flew in from a shelter in Spain yesterday!

It was intended to be a surprise party but the gang got on the wrong train at Amsterdam and was late.  Geez, I was only asleep for a little while on the cloud and look what happened.  The gang was probably too excited to be together again and chatted too much, getting on the wrong platform altogether.  Never mind, since we are here we may as well have a party anyway.

Happy Easter

Hello, effurryone!  That SS has been slack and not been helping with visits and blogging.  What to do?  ::sigh::

Here is wishing all our furriends and their families a happy and safe Easter.

From Charlotte (yes, I am still here, wouldn't you all miss me when, or if, I am gone?) and Cousin GiGi.

Thursday in the Garden with Charlotte

We have had a rather crazy summer with record heat waves, storms and flood.  Some of our plants did not survive the heat.  So glad autumn has come and the weather has stabilized somewhat.   As you know, MoMo's Memorial Floral Fountain is an ongoing project.  This is a new native flowering plant that is flourishing ...

The colouring is a pretty lilac.  The photos don't really do justice to it.
The daisies, roses, hibiscus, jasmine and other flowers are also doing well.

I guess that's not a bad effort for a first time kitty gardener.  What do you think?
After all that, I think a nap is in order...

Thank you all for visiting!  That's me signing off, efurryone keep well until next time.

GiGi, my new cousin

Introducing GiGi, the newest member of the family..... 

Gigi was surrendered/dumped at a high kill shelter on St Valentine's Day.  She was on the death row and was due to be euthanised on February 21.  My cousin and her mom called to have her put on hold and drove an hour and a half to the shelter the following day.  There were so many cuties there that they could have come home with 10 kitties.  They signed the adoption papers there and then.  Gigi was taken to the university vet clinic for checkup, immunization and spayed.

Here she is, safely ensconced in a loving home, purring a storm up whenever held and cuddling up to everyone.  How anyone can surrender such a cute, affectionate kitty to a known high kill shelter is beyond comprehension.

Happy Birthday to SS

Today is SS's birthday.  Not that I know, but she must be a gizillion years old.  I got her a card (with some help from my momma) and picked some flowers from the garden (would you believe I picked them with my own paws?  Probably not.).  What a good girl I am!  Even my momma says so.

Thursday in the Garden with Charlotte

It's late summer for us.  After the heat wave a few weeks ago which killed a lot of the plants, there has been substantial rain which helped to revive the garden somewhat.

Here is the Memorial Fountain for MoMo.  It is blooming nicely thanks to the loving daily care of SS's brother.  Of course, I have been supervising and helping too.

SS has been busy with work and nursing duties lately and has not been able to help me visit and blog.  We miss all our furriends and hope that you are all doing well.

I am not sure when I am going home.  Just as well I like it here and don't mind staying.

That's enough effort for the day.  I am taking a well-deserved snooze......

Wordless Wednesday - Not

Being a chatterbox, I just don't get the idea of wordless any day.  Here I am, wondering if any treats are on offering.  Perhaps if I give my pretty look, I may have more chance of scoring.  What do you think?  Is this look good enough for a treat or two..or three...or four......

Urgent purrs and prayers needed for Asta

Sweet Asta is undergoing surgery for a mass.  We hope it is not cancer.  Please, please purr and pray for her.

Caturday with Charlotte

It's been a crazy sort of week, so we can all relax on Saturday.  For a spot of kitty humour, please visit Wendy's LOL post.  Charlotte is the lucky kitty featured in this hilarious post.

It's been cool, stormy, windy and totally not the sort of days that you would stay in the garden.  The only thing feasible is......

Yes, you guessed it.  That's my chair and my cotton throw.  Nobody sits there, once the throw is laid out.  Otherwise, I would be severely displeased.

SS, you go and talk to Mr Sun.  I am starting to suffer from cabin fever and need to go out very soon.  Sooner the better.

Have a good weekend, efurryone!

Wordless Wednesday

Toy Tuesday

I don't have many toys but I just love my Elmo....

I bat it around, I talk to it, I sleep with it.  Wherever I go, he goes.  We are inseparable.  He has been with me since I was a kitten.  Yes, he is a little battered, but I prefer him to other newer toys.

SS has to wash him and clean him up from time to time, especially now that I take him out to the garden with me during the day and he does get dirty.  Some evenings she has to retrieve him from the flower bed when I go in for dinner.  Well, she has to, because I make a lot of noise at night if Elmo is not with me comes bedtime.  It is by far easier to find him when it is still light than having to rely on torch light.

Wordy Wednesday

Hi efurryone!  Charlotte here.  You would never find me wordless.  I am a chatterbox. I chatter to my toys, to SS and anycat who happens to be in my territory, especially if it is in my territory.  You probably all wonder why I am still here.  Well, my mom hasn't found a place to live yet.  Frankly, I quite like the garden and the company.  Plus I get lots of human food treats here, like ham and cheese.  Don't tell my mom though.  She doesn't approve.  Enough said, you must all be hankering for a glimpse of pretty me.....

SS - That Charlotte is a posy kitty.
Charlotte - SS, what are you saying behind my back?
SS - Nothing.  Just that you are photogenic.
Charlotte - Didn't quite sound like that, but that'll do.

That's it from me until next time.
                 Take care and have fun, kitties!

Saturday 12 January 2013


We have been lucky in Sydney to be escaping much of the heatwave that is affecting most regions in Australia in the past 2 weeks.  Today is supposed to be very hot but it feels just right to me.  There are plenty of shady spots in the garden and SS is on paw to serve cool water and hand feed me bits of ham and cheese.  What more does a kitty want?
