Three on Thursday

Three kitties looking cute. Or: A game of keep daddy out of the bed!

It's dark because his cell phone is half broken and because it's night. I don't think they want to share any more..

Leo (in the back): Ok dude, put away the camera. It's officially sleeping time here.
Glitter (in the middle): Just don't look, Leo, then he'll have to stop.
Cashmere ( in the front): ZzzzzzzzzZZZzzzzzzz

When I adopted Leo, and had Star at home, all I ever wanted was to see a couple of gray kitties all curled up sleeping together. I finally got my wish! Though I'm sure they've done it where I can't see them, it does warm my heart to see my babies snuggled up close! The only thing that will make it better is when I get home to see it in person! (soon! January for sure!)

Thought I'd show off my Christmas tree! This is the best I could do in my little space. This wall is my only view, so I love having it decorated up!

To everyone who sent me a Christmas card, I have then hung up on string on the wall beside me and over the door! Everyone is amazed at how many cards I have, and how many cats are on so many of the cards! But I know that Cat (and dog and pet) Bloggers are the best, nicest, most caring people in the world! You all have made my Christmas away from home very bright indeed! Thank you!

(I left a teaser about what Daily Dose would be posting, but I was wrong about when! She might be waiting to receive it in the mail before announcing, so keep your eyes on them regardless!)

Merry Merry Christmas!

We want to wish a wonderful, fur filled, Christmas to all of our friends! We hope your day is purrrrfect!

We will try to be back on a more regular basis soon! Mommy is trying to come for a visit on Christmas Day and we have all of our paws crossed, especially after her failed attempt at Thanksgiving.. She promised she's working hard to be home in January and we are going to hold her to it! Daddy snores too much when we pile on him to snuggle/sleep...

Have a wonderful day everyone!

And tune into Daily Dose this coming week for an update on the Winnie's Wish Auction total!!

ThrowBack Thursday

This is from December 8, 2014 and was called:

The Leo Lounge

When Leo is in one of the tall cat tree's caves, we call it the Leo Lounge!
Well, I was trying to sleep, until that flashing started going off.. I think it's made me cross-eyed! Thanks mom..

Poor fella, every time he starts looking cute, that camera starts clicking away!

It's That Box Time of Year

Kitties love this time of year, and the boxes have started coming in!

Greg was almost not fast enough to get this incredibly blurry picture of.. Not sure what kitty this is! But they jumped out so fast it's the only shot he got.

Unknown Kitty: Ooo a box! Yay! Oops, a camera! Bye!!

The Unknown Box Kitty will be back some day. Somewhere, there's a box about to be delivered. And when it is, Unknown Box Kitty will be there!

Last Day!!

This is it! Today is the last day of the Winnie's Wish Insta-Auction! (until sometime in the new year anyway) so if you want some of the lovely Christmas themed things, or wonderful gifty things, or even a treat for yourself or your own animals, this is THE day!

This has been going wonderfully, lets end it on a high note and sell out! :D

Every bid, every won item, means food in Wishers' bellies, litter in their boxes, spay and neuter surgeries, medical help and medicines! Every bid goes to helping these wonderful kitties! Kitties who, by the way, are in serious need of great homes! What a Christmas wish that would be: selling out the auction AND homing all the ready to go kitties! Shall we try, dear friends?? I hope you will!

Here are a few of the still available items, just to whet your appetite for a bid!

How has this been here so long! Wouldn't it make a great gift for someone who loves to decorate in purple? or maybe loves Wysteria? Or needs a serine scene to gaze upon and relax? It's a gorgeous print that deserves a home!

There are other colors of these jingly collars! Adjustable!

 More colors of these bowties too!

(the kitty version of this stocking can be ordered!
As can nearly any crocheted item you've seen on
the auction that you may have missed,
just email me! anniclan AT aol DOT com)

Need a holiday, or everyday blog header?
This could be the item for you!

 And this is not all! Be sure to look and see if there's something fun that you need to get before time is up!

Two for Tuesday

Glitter: Sorry dad, if you wanna sleep here, you have to only use the middle part of the bed.
Leo: zzzzzzzzzzzzznotmovingzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

They either do not want to share, or they want to snuggle up tight against Greg and not let him go, no compromise, no middle ground. Well, except what's left this time!


Speaking of Two! Only two more shopping days on the Winnie's Wish Insta Auction!!

Every bid helps the kitties of Winnie's Wish so please please have a look!

And since it's Giving Tuesday, if you don't see anything on the auction that you like, consider going to the Daily Dose blog and using the donate button! Donations and wish list items always seriously needed! Thank you!

Thankful ThrowBack Thursday

It's Thanksgiving Day here in the USA. I was not able to make a new picture for it this year, or apparently the last few years.. since the only picture I could find was from when we had only Leo and Star.
So this is my TBT! And we are joining Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
We hope all of our dear blogging friends, USA and elsewhere, have a wonderful, thank filled day! We love you all!

We are thankful for friends and family and furiends near and far! We are thankful for warm beds and an abundant supply of catnip toys! We are thankful for cat trees and bunny/bird/squirrel TV!

I am personally thankful that I get to leave rehab for a few hours to see my family! That's a luxury a lot of people here do not have because their family and friends are too far away. I wish I were going home for good, but at least I get out for a little bit and there is the possibility that I might be able to sneak home and cuddle my kitties for a few minutes if my pain levels allow! (shoot, even if they don't maybe!) shhh, don't tell! lol!
I'm also very thankful for the friends I've met through the blogging world, love every one of you and wish I could personally give each one of you a hug!


I'm also thankful that I get to help Winnie's Wish with the Insta-Auction! It will end on November 30th, though each initial bid still gets it's own seven days, until we run out of days, then everything still open will end at midnight EDT on November 30.
We would be thankful if you stopped by to see if there is something you might want for a gift to give on Christmas or something for your kitties, or even something just for you! Thank you!
We are thankful for every bid because it helps the kitties of Winnie's Wish! We are thankful that every bid helps Chrystal to be able to rescue even more! We are thankful that every bid helps keep every kitty there healthy, fed, and in comfort in the cat house!

MultiCat Monday

It's not fair. I was thrilled when I would get two kitties to sleep with me. Twice I think I had all three for a little while. But Greg... He gets them all, all the time! He sent me this:

That's Leo on the left, Glitter half missing on the right, and Cashmere down by the feet.

Greg SAYS they pin him in so he cant move, but I don't see him making them leave either! I need to get home and put a stop to this!


Please be sure to stop in at the Winnie's Wish Insta-Auction! It will come to an end at the end of the month, so be sure to get your holiday shopping done now!

Every bid helps the kitties of Winnie's Wish! And being as full as they are, every dollar helps!

Wordless Wednesday with Cashmere


The Winnie's Wish Insta-Auction will close on November 30th until sometime in the new year. Currently, the seven day bids are still in effect, but come closer to the end of the month and everything that has a bid will end on the 30th at midnight EST. I hope that makes sense...

Meanwhile, I have added several new items! Pillow covers, catnip sticks, beds, and there are many things that would make great Christmas gifts for friends or animals! Not to mention Ann of Zoolatry's blog header! Need a header for the holidays? get it here and help the kitties!
Remember, every bid helps the kitties of Winnie's Wish!!!

Mancat Monday

Leo: I got my lasers set on stunning, just in case any ladycats are out there, especially a certain mustachioed ladycat, merow!

Have I just missed it, or did blogger just add the emoji thingie? Love the kitty ones! 😻


I have a few more things to add to the Winnie's Wish Insta-Auction. I think I will stop taking bids at the end of the month and close the auction at least until next year. There are some Christmas items. There are some things that would make great gifts, for your friends, your kitties, or even for you! Please do check them out! .

Every bid helps the kitties of Winnie's Wish! So bid early and bid often! 😸

Winnie's Wish is also in great need of adoptions! Please share the kitties and ask your friends to share them! Someone out there knows the perfect wonderful home for a kitty or two!
Donations and Wish List items are also greatly appreciated, you'll find links to both on the Daily Dose site and on the Auction site.

Caturday Art

It had been my plan to post all week this past week.. as you can see that didn't go so well. So I decided to try my hand at Caturday Art again! I found a picture of Glitter that I used a while back and played with it with my GIMP program. I love this picture because she's sleeping with her head nearly upside down and it's just too cute!

The original:

The one I always have to use because I like it so: Cartoon

Another I always like: Emboss

This was called Lens, I don't know what it's supposed to be or do, but it kind of rounded her head and made her look like a hamster!

This is Neon, but then I had to lighten it a little so the edges and colors showed.

And finally, first I used Oilify to make it look like a painting, then I applied Canvas to enhance the painting effect, and when I was done, I decided it needed a frame so I put on a beveled boarder!

I had fun and could have kept going making more effects, but I have to be up for a VERY early physical therapy session to make up for missing a day so I have to at least TRY to get some sleep!


There are many awesome items on the Winnie's Wish Insta-Auction! I hope you'll take time to stop over and maybe think about shopping for the holidays on the Auction!

Remember, every bid helps the kitties of Winnie's Wish! So if you find a gift for someone, or some pet, it's really a double gift, one for your person/critter and one for the Wishers!
