Leo: zzzzZZZZzzzzz Must nap in the new year... zzzzzz

Caturday Art

 I went back a bit to find this picture of Cashmere from the 7th, her happy sleeper picture, for this weeks Caturday art. I used lunapic and wanted to do an all Christmas theme again, but the way this picture is, that didn't work. Her face isn't centered so it was using her fluff as the focus of some of the things and I gave up and went to a few non Christmas favorites. But lets start with the Christmas ones that did work!

And the original


I want to thank everyone for their kind words on Pipers passing. She will be missed. 


Sunday, December 12, 2021


 If you're a long time reader, you may recall that I got my mother a cat for mother's day in 2017. Piper was a very chubby sweetheart that soon became my mom's best buddy. 
When we lost my mom in 2019 Piper went to live with my sister. Actually, she moved in with her while my mother was in the hospital and rehab. Piper missed my mom but came to love my sister and her husband too. 
My sister and her husband moved into my mom's old house and Piper was back in her home, and happy, and loved. 
Yesterday, suddenly, Piper passed away in my sisters arms. 
Earlier this week Piper was at the vets, they couldn't find anything seriously wrong with her except that she seemed anemic. They weren't going to do any extensive testing at the moment, more wait and see because she should be ok. The vet did talk about possibly doing leukemia testing in the future. 
I know cats can hide sickness for a long time, but this was a shock. I think we're all in shock. 

 I think it's only fitting that her memorial picture has her with her paw on my mother urn. She passed away two years and four days after my mother.
Fly Free Sweet Piper, we'll see you at the rainbow bridge, where you are hopefully in my mom's lap. 


The Winnie's Wish Auction has ended, everyone has been emailed. Hopefully we'll have wonderful numbers to share with you all soon. Thank you for your support!

Santa Watch

 Leo: Are you out there Santa? We been really good, we need some nip! Daddy put the 'tree' up and now we need something to put under it. I sure hope you can hear me because even though I have thumbs, I can't write! 

The tree in question.

It's been a rough year health wise around here, Greg's a mess, I'm a bit better than him but not at my best. Even Leo and Glitter have colds. So this might be the extent of our Christmas decor. At least it's cats!! So we're all good! 

The Winnie's Wish Holiday Auction ends Saturday at midnight! I have put up the last of the items and I hope you see something you like. Think Christmas shopping for your cats, your friends with cats, or even for yourself! 

Please share our last few days of the auction! 

Every Bid helps the kitties of Winnie's Wish! 

Hope you are all having a wonderful Season!

Happy Sleeper

 Do you see the smile on Cashmere's face while she's sleeping here?
Cashmere: Zzzzzzpurrrrrzzzzzpurrrrrrrzzzz
And do you know why she's smiling? Because that's her daddy's leg she's up against. She adores him and loves to be touching him while she sleeps. He obliges her of course, and stays there as long as he can so she can have her happy sleeping spot. 
We're coming down to the wire!  The Winnie's Wish Holiday Auction ends this Saturday at midnight! Be sure to get your bids in! By tonight I'll have everything that's going to be posted up on the auction site. Beds and toys and other fun stuff just waiting for you! Holiday shopping anyone? :)
