Ha ha ha for Bow-Tie.

This is me before the party.

This is my new dress and I feel very beautiful.

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi got her own chairWhen I got there, I got my very own chair.

Broshi looking cute at the partyMy chair is the perfect place for people to adore me…

…and they did.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Miss Lily was at the party tooMiss Lily was there, too.

She decided to go a bit more formal with her little black dress.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All the partying made Broshi sleepyA big party is a bit tiring for this kitty.

I was happy to curl up on my chair with my blanket and take a nice cat nap.

Thanks for listening to my story of the big day.

Love,

Broshi

Bow-Tie with a WoobyHi Everyone,

Coming to you today from inside a carrier.

This week was my annual wellness trip to my vet.

As soon as I arrived they threw this “Wooby” in my carrier.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie with a WoobyWooby??

What’s a Wooby?

Turns out a Wooby is a calming agent for scared cats.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie is a confident catI am not a scared cat.

I am a confident cat.

I prefer to wait for my doctor on my own, without a carrier or pacifier.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie at the vetDr. Holt came in and with the help of her assistant gave me the once-over.

They both agreed I’m in good shape for the shape I’m in!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie getting purrsonal cuddle timeThe best part of the visit was the last part.

One of the vet techs heard I was in the exam room, and came to see me.

She wanted a little purrsonal Bow-Tie time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie getting purrsonal cuddle timeI was happy to oblige, because after all…

…purrsonal lovin’ is the best part of any day.

Love you all!

Bow-Tie with the Pet GazetteAnd if that wasn’t enough…

…it’s on the front cover of a local pet magazine!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie with the Pet GazetteYep. That’s me…

…and it’s out on newsstands now.

Inside is the story of how Cat Depot saved me from a horrific hoarding environment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and CourageI know my readers are all over the country.

Sorry, this is a local magazine so you may not be able to get it, but you can still see the cover.

Courage was sweet and wanted to share in my joy.

She also wore a bow tie to help celebrate the occasion.

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and BroshiBroshi on the other hand just plopped herself down right on my face.

You can dress them up, but you can’t make them behave.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie looks handsome in his bow tieThanks to this wonderful magazine for making me a cover boy.

Thanks again to Cat Depot for making me healthy enough to be me!

Love you all!

Bow-Tie and his shadowDear Friends,

Who is Phil and why does everyone listen to him?

He’s a groundhog with only one thing to do all year.

Either he sees his shadow, or he doesn’t.

Really?

That is not a big deal.

I can make my shadow do tricks!

See it now, standing with me on this side?

 

 

Bow-Tie looks at his shadowNow look…

…it’s on the other side of me, and it sat down!

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie has a long shadowWait… Watch this.

I can make it go in front of me and be really long.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie saw his shadowAnd if that’s not enough…

…I can make it face the opposite direction.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie wonders where shadows come fromSo, you be the judge.

Who has a better shadow?

Phil, who only sees it – or doesn’t see it – one day a year…

…or me, Bow-Tie, the cat with the shadow that does tricks?

 

Love to you all!

Bow-Tie with rulersDear Friends,

I have a question for you…

…how do you measure up?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie with rulersWe all think about that, don’t we?

How do we measure up against others?

How do we measure up against a task, project, or job?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie with rulersWe use all kinds of measurements to decide how good or bad we are as compared to others.

Truth is, no matter what measurement you use, you cannot measure your individuality.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie with rulersSo please, put all of those measuring tools away.

You’re purrfect just the way you are.

We are all purrfect just the way we are…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Adorable Bow-Tie…and don’t listen to anyone who tells you that you don’t measure up!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie with rulersYou’re purrfect…

…and I love you!

Until next week!

There were treats inside and she smelled them, so who could blame her.

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie eating, holding the treat bag with his pawWhitey knows I don’t have any teeth…

…so he sent soft treats.

The girls are not getting any of these.

Bow-Tie with his cat and dog bow tieDear Friends,

Facebook can be mean sometimes.

You all agree with me.

Recently I was the victim of a negative Facebook comment.

I am now here to defend myself.

See my cat and dog bow tie?

It proves I am an equal opportunity cat, and spread the love equally.

 

 

 

Bow-Tie being nuzzled by a dogSomeone on Facebook made the comment, “Bow-Tie sleeps with dogs???”

(He’s a cat dad who is partial to cats only.)

Yes Sir, Bow-Tie sleeps with dogs.

All kinds, all ages, all dogs.

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and Maddie sleepingBig dogs don’t bother me…

…and I’m not bothered by being used as a pillow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie napping with a dogI am not partial to breed or color.

I love all dogs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie napping with a dogSo please stop the Facebook negativity.

And let it become that yes, I Bow-Tie sleep with the dogs!

Love you all!

Bow-Tie and Annie Sullivan got a presentHappy New Year, Everyone!

This is my first message of the new year.

Hope you are all well and happy.

Annie Sullivan and I just got another Christmas gift!

It’s wrapped in a cozy kitty blanket.

 

 

 

 

Annie Sullivan opens the packageAnnie Sullivan is really good at opening things, so I’ll leave it to her.

She’s persistent!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Annie Sullivan opened the packageSee what I told you…

…she got it open.

It’s a great new kitty activity box.

It has a feather outside, balls inside, and a scratching surface.

Any kitty’s dream gift!

 

 

 

 

The girls enjoy the new toyCourage came running when she heard the scratching and the balls rolling around.

Being the gentleman I am, I stepped aside for the girls.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mixie plays with the featherMixie was quite intrigued with the feather.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The girls enjoy the new toyBroshi was attracted by the sounds.

Mixie was a bit selfish about sharing at first…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The girls enjoy the new toy…but then she helped Broshi find out how to play with the balls inside.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The girls enjoy the new toyI think I’ll just take a nap and let the girls play for a while.

Who can resist such cuteness?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-TieSee you next week!

Love,
Bow-Tie
