…I love crinkle balls.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie with his crinkle ball I love them soooo much.

You also know I don’t have any teeth, but I have no problem grabbing crinkle balls.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie shows his lack of teethSee… no teeth.

No problem.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie retrievesThe other thing I love to do is retrieve the crinkle balls.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie retrievesI will run after them and bring them back as long as someone will throw them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie looking forward to playing with his crinkle ballRetrieving.

That’s a dog thing, right?

Nope. It’s not just for dogs.

I can retrieve just as well as any dog.

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie says, "Take that, dogs!"Grrr….

Take that, you dogs!

Annie SullivanDear People Out There…

I am Annie Sullivan.

I keep hearing how cute Broshi is, and how Broshi is in a lot of Bow-Tie’s blogs.

Well, I’m here to tell you I am just as interesting as Broshi, and I may even be cuter.

(Of course, neither Broshi nor I know how cute we are, because we can’t see, but that doesn’t matter.)

It’s my turn this week!

 

 

Annie with ballI like to go outside. (Safely, of course.)

Usually, I take a toy with me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Annie with glassesSometimes I like to wear my glasses. Just to look cool, of course.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Annie with wingsSometimes I like to wear my angel wings…

…well, because I’m an angel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Annie with wings, ball, and glasses 2Sometimes I do all three things at one time…

…I play with my ball while wearing my sunglasses and angel wings.

That takes talent.

Try to do that, Broshi! Ha!

 

 

 

 

 

Annie in the bird bathWhen I’m not basking in the sun, I like to explore.

Don’t you think I could easily be mistaken for a beautiful garden statue?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Annie with lizardSometimes I like to meet new friends outside.

This guy didn’t talk very much, but he seemed nice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Annie in flowersSo next time you think Broshi is “all that,” think about how cute I am, and how interesting I am.

The name is Annie Sullivan.

I know you won’t forget me now.

 

Love to everyone!

Bow-Tie and BroshiDear Friends,

Look at Broshi, all dressed up this Easter weekend.

She likes all this pink and frilly stuff.

I’m not sure I get it, but she’s all into it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and Broshi super cuteShe tries to woo me into getting interested in her frilly things.

She’s so cute I can hardly resist, yet I find it difficult to show enthusiasm for pink frills.

I’m a manly cat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and BroshiHer soft, meowing please finally get to me.

I don’t really share her interest in pink frills, but I can help her.

I can give her someone who will love all her frilly things, and spend time with her.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi with her bearAs soon as I put Mr. Teddy the Bear next to her, she was immediately attracted to him.

She gave him a sweet little kiss – and I think he kissed her back.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi looking adorable with Mr. Teddy BearBroshi settled right in with Mr. Teddy the Bear.

She sensed his love of colorful things and she liked him very much.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi with her bearLittle Broshi found a colorful friend to share her love of frills…

…and they look happy together.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and Broshi super cuteHappy Easter, everyone!

Love from Broshi and from me, Bow-Tie.

We love you all!

Bow-Tie dislikes the cold daysDear Friends,

What’s going on here?

The calendar says spring has sprung, but there’s a cold front in most places.

Even here in Florida the chill is in the air.

Broshi and I have taken to sleeping most of the day away just to stay warm.

 

 

 

Bow-Tie just thought of somethingSleeping all the time doesn’t leave much time for anything else and it often gets boring.

But it’s tough to get out of this warm bed.

And then…

…I had a great idea!

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie enjoys optionsWhy not bring some snacks into bed with us?

When snacks are called for, they must bear the Bow-Tie seal of approval.

Ahhh… Bow-Tie snack crackers, now we’re talking.

And they come in flavors!

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie enjoys the day with Broshi and snacksWho wouldn’t love Bow-Tie snack crackers?

Everybody will love them!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie shows the breakfast of championsSo, next time it’s cold out and you take to your bed to stay warm, get some Bow-Tie snack crackers.

It’s the true Breakfast of Champions!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie winks and Broshi licks her lipsMoral of this story?

When the snacks are gone and Broshi is licking her lips in approval, it’s a good day in Bow-Tieville!

 

See you next week.

Love,
Bow-Tie

…but it’s a special occasion, so I decided to go big.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie looking at BroshiLittle Broshi wanted to celebrate and put her pretty green dress on.

Should I let her sit with me?

Should I let her celebrate with me?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and BroshiThe answer is simple… of course she can.

She’s a little sweetie.

Bow-Tie says, "It's that time again..."Dear Friends,

What time is it?

Time to change the clocks again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Raise your paw if you're confused about the changesIf you’re confused about changing the time, raise your hand.

Me too!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Raise your paw if you want to sleep inJust when we get used to the time being changed one way…

…we have to change it back the other way.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie is ready to change his clockThere’s nothing we can do to change the changing.

If we don’t do it, we’ll be showing up either early or late for the next six months.

So let’s all just line our clocks up and spring ahead one hour. Than means we’ll have one more hour of darkness in the morning, but more sunlight in the evening.

We have to stay that way until the first Sunday in November.

 

 

 

Let's just do itLet’s all just do it…

…spring ahead one hour.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie says time changes are yuckyWait!

One less hour sleep?

Oh, I don’t like that.

Take that, spring ahead Daylight Saving Time!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie poses with his clockWho invented this system anyway?

Have a happy week, even though it will be one hour shorter.

 

Love you all,
Bow-Tie

Broshi is ready to goHi Everybody!

It’s me…

…Ambrosia, but you can call me Broshi.

I’m all dressed up, because I went to a party. Bow-Tie is letting me tell you about it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi, Nancy Colby, and BettyIt was a fancy luncheon for the benefit of cats and dogs.

I got to sit at the table with all the other ladies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lunch is servedMy nose started working overtime when the food was served.

I’m not quite sure what it was, but it smelled good.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi wonders what's for lunchNo reason not to take a closer sniff.

A well mannered lady doesn’t touch, so I didn’t.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi and RoxanneOne of the pretty ladies there wanted to hold me.

She was very nice and had a good lap.

Next time I think I’ll wear a hat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi took the bedAll in all it was a wonderful day…

…but I was very tired when I got home.

Bow-Tie said I needed a nap.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi tired at the end of the dayThank you to all the ladies who made the day so much fun, and for supporting the animals.

Thank you to all of you for reading about my adventure.

 

Love,

Broshi and of course,

Bow-Tie, the dapper gentDear Friends,

My name is Bow-Tie.

My style is dapper.

My trademark is the bow tie.

This should not come as a surprise to anyone.

I’ve been around for a while and you have all seen my dapperness (that’s my word.)

What you may not know is, I am very careful to match my surroundings.

By that I mean I choose my bow tie based on my event.

 

 

 

Bow-Tie matches his surroundingsOne very important event is eating.

So, what else…

…but a bow tie that matches my bowl and placemat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi shows off her bow tieSometimes one of the girls get in my space.

She knows she can stay if she comes dressed for the occasion…

…and Broshi knows how to strut her stuff.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and Broshi waits for dinnerShe gets to stay and share a meal.

Sharing and looking good while you do it.

That’s the Bow-Tie way!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dinner is overWith love from,

Bow-Tie, The Dapper Gent and Broshi, too!

Bow-Tie with his souvenirsHi Everybody,

I’m wearing my grumpy face in this picture.

That’s because someone in this house went to London and left me home.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie didn't get to go to LondonMy grumpy face quickly turned to a happy face though. There were souvenirs.

Hey, there’s one over here that looks really good.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie has a red catnip doubledeckerNow, that I like…

…it’s a London bus filled with catnip.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie has his own Big BenAnd then, of course, Big Ben made his appearance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie made Big Ben into the leaning tower of... LondonI found a way to turn him into the Leaning Tower.

(Oh, sorry. Wrong city.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie likes his catnip toysI’m very thankful and happy for my London souvenirs.

I love the London catnip bus, the Queen’s Catnip, and Big Ben (he’s catnip, too.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The telephone booth is Bow-Tie's favoriteMost of all though, I think I like the telephone booth…

…it has cat treats in it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The telephone booth is Bow-Tie's favoriteNow I’m convinced…

…London is a very good thing.

 

 

 

Love you all!
