Bow-Tie getting a massageDear Friends,

This is Father’s Day weekend.

What is a father?

He’s someone who loves you and takes care of you.

That care may mean giving you a good massage when you need it.

Strong hands give a strong massage.

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie getting a chin rubThose strong hands can give a good neck and chin massage, too.

Ahhhh.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dads can help get the bow tie straightMost of all, a Dad’s hands can make sure your bow tie is on straight.

That’s very important to me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-tie winksBut do you know what is not Dad-like?

Cats running the streets, making kittens all over the place.

Neuter your cats.

They will thank you for it.

Honest!

Love you all,

Bow-Tie in his favorite chairDear Friends,

So, this morning I got into my favorite chair on the lanai.

My intent was to spend a relaxing morning in the sunshine.

This is my favorite chair that has years of my hair on it to prove it’s mine.

 

 

 

 

Broshi wants attentionMine, I said…

…and then came Broshi.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi knows no boundariesBroshi doesn’t know boundaries.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi timeBroshi has no respect for privacy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi climbs on Bow-TieBroshi knows no limits.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi and Bow-TieMy plans for a relaxing sun bath turned into Broshi time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi kisses Bow-Ties headI adjusted accordingly and spent the morning with her.

Because time together is more important than any chair, any time.

Bow-Tie has cabin fever from all the rainDear Friends,

It has been raining so much in Florida I’m getting cabin fever.

Cabin fever makes me a bit grumpy.

Putting my lady bug bow tie on upside down makes me grumpy too.

At last, I got to go outside today.

 

 

 

 

 

Finally a day with nice weatherThe sun was shining, so that was great.

It’s the first time I’ve been outside in a week.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The grass is knee highWith all the rain, the grass is overtaking the property.

I’ve heard of corn being “knee high by the 4th of July,” but this grass is knee high and it’s only June.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The grass is leg highNot only is it knee high…

…it’s leg high.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The grass is wetIt’s difficult to walk in this jungle…

…and it’s wet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie can't find his way out of the grassSomebody please send the mowers over…

…or I may be lost forever!

 

If I plow out from underneath this, I’ll see you next week.

Love,

Bow-Tie

Handsome is stars-and-stripes bow tieHappy Memorial Day!

It’s time to wear red, white, and blue.

It’s time to remember those who so bravely gave their lives for our freedom.

It’s time now and forever to honor them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Annie Sullivan in patriotic bow-tieI’ve asked some of my sisters to help me honor those brave men and women.

Annie Sullivan is always ready to help.

I lent her a bow tie which seems to be too big for her, but she doesn’t care.

She’s proud to serve.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi with patriotic gearBroshi is a little ham.

If she hears the camera, she comes running.

Her heart is in the right place.

Let us all be so willing to honor others that we forget we may be less than perfect.

Focus on others, like Broshi.

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie feeling patrioticOn this Memorial Day, let us all remember the brave men and women who died for our freedom…

…but let us more embrace the fact that they lived.

 

Happy Memorial Day, everyone!

Love,

Bow-Tie

Bow-Tie, Broshi, and the bearDear Friends,

It was a busy week with the Giving Challenge.

All of the kitties who were helped by your giving thank you.

Speaking of giving…

…someone gave Broshi this adorable teddy bear.

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi falling asleepShe loves it very much.

When I tried to nose it…

…she quickly pulled it away from me and held on tight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and BroshiI comforted her by telling her I was not going to take it away from her.

She trusted me and relaxed with her new friend.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi falling asleepBroshi is a kitty who falls asleep whenever she is cuddled…

…and it doesn’t matter if the cuddling is done by a human, another cat, or her little bear.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi with her bearShe was so relaxed she tipped over a bit…

…but she still clung tightly to her new little bear.

So cute.

Giving and loving are good things.

 

Love,

Bow-Tie

Bow-TIe with money bow tieMy Dear Friends,

I am wearing my money bow tie.

That means I have important business to talk about, and an important job to do.

I only don this bow tie once a year and that’s when I’m serious about making a financial decision for cats.

The Giving Challenge is upon us.

That means the Patterson Foundation will provide a 1:1 match for all unique donations up to $100 per donor.

It also means Cat Depot will benefit in so many other ways by matching funds from any donation.

 

 

Kitten in handsThe theme this year is, “Be the One to Rock Their World.”

Isn’t this the cutest picture ever…

…a kitten snuggled in the loving hands of Cat Depot.

Without Cat Depot, cats like her would perish.

 

 

 

 

It makes me sad to say that and it makes me sad even to think about it.

You can “Be the One to Rock Their World!”

The Giving Challenge challenges you to give and have your donation doubled.

Giving Challenge banner

IBow-Tie found a rockf you call Cat Depot May 1-2, Noon to Noon, you can make a huge difference.

If you plan to donate to Cat Depot at any time within the year, please make this the time.

Having your donation matched is a no-brainer!

I picked up a rock that says “Love.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie found rocksPlease show your love for my kitty friends by donating during this important time.

I don’t often ask for money, but I’m doing it now.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Caring and love is what kitties need.

Please help us help them by donating during this very important time.

Be the One to Save a Life

Thank you, Friends.

I love you all,

Bow-Tie and BroshiDear Friends,

Broshi and I went to a two-day cat show this weekend.

I was supposed to watch her, but I got distracted early in the day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie says that donut kitties ruleMy distraction?

The booth next to us…

…they sold catnip donuts!

Since I am a “donut kitty,” I was extremely interested in investigating.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie investigating a boothI investigated, and here’s what I found…

…I loved everything!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie shows the perfect donutsThe search was on for the purrfect donut…

…and I picked three of the best ones.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie sniff testing the donutsI sniffed them all, and found the ones that were the most potent.

Trust me, I know donuts and I know catnip.

These are the best.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie shopping for catnip donutsMy purchase was secured by none other than the owner and creator of these lovely donuts.

She was a lovely lady and very happy to help me with my purchase.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie is contentHow did Broshi do in the show?

Very well.

But I was more interested in my newly purchased donuts than the show.

(Sorry, Broshi.)

Donut Kitties rule, and now I have new donuts for my collection.

 

Love you all,
