Bow-Tie and Annie SullivanOnce I got the things out of the bag…

…Annie Sullivan came out of nowhere to investigate.

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

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

It’s a roof made out of bow tie pasta!

And the walls are made of bow tie pretzels!

My question was…

…who delivers Christmas presents to cats?

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and SantaHis answer???

Santa Claws!!!

Santa is a wise guy!

Bye bye for now!

Have you ever seen those t-shirts that say, “Someone went to so and so and all I got was this lousy t-shirt?”

Take a look at this…

…someone went to England and all I got was this lousy bow tie.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie feels BritishOnly kidding…

…it’s quite British and I’m quite pleased.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie with his giftsI feel happy to get to play an Englishman (I mean Englishcat).

As I sit among my English treasures I find myself thinking about a spot of tea.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie wants a cup of teaActually…

…if you mix catnip with water it’s jolly good!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie wants a cup of teaAh…

…jolly good indeed!

Bow-Tie found a presentDear Friends,

It’s the season where there is a “Naughty or Nice” list circulating.

You know I always try to be good, but I may have done something naughty.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie found a presentWhile I was playing with some paper bags I may have discovered a Christmas gift.

It was red and shiny, and had my name on it.

Honest, I wasn’t trying to find anything, it just happened.

I was a victim of circumstances.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie tries his new ballSo, what do you do when something like this happens?

If you’re like me, you make the best of every situation.

I started to see if this new toy was going to work for me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie tries his new ballI’m right-pawed, so I took a nice swipe at it.

Purrfect size!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie tries his new ballJust to make sure, I gave it a swat with my left paw.

It works either way!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie found a presentIt’s a purrfect present for me!

Don’t tell anyone I found it early and I’ll act surprised on Christmas morning.

 

Love you all!

Bow-Tie in his cat doorHi Friends!

It’s another week and another adventure over here.

Welcome to my world.

This is me…

…and this is the cat door that leads to my private bathroom area.

Should be private, right?

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie says "Uh-oh"Uh oh!

I spy trouble coming.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why is she guarding my cat door?Why does this big lug think she has to guard my door?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie gets a sloppy kissAnd why does she feel the need to lick me all the time?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where's my bow tie?Turns out it wasn’t a kiss at all…

…she stole my bow tie!

And when she was caught red handed, she thinks looking away will save her.

She’s busted!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie winkingI’m a good sport though…

…I let her think she got away with it (wink, wink).

All in the name of friendship!

Have a wonderful week!

Love,

Bow-Tie

Bow-Tie on a shelf in the pantryDear Friends,

It wasn’t a good week in the Bow-Tie household.

I accidentally got locked in the pantry, broke a bottle of oil…

…and the result was an oily mess.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie made a mess on the pantry floorThere was oil as far as the eye could see.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie is greasyIt covered everything, including me.

I’ve heard oil is good for your coat, but this much is just too much.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie getting a bathOne bath didn’t really help…

…there was more oil in the tub than water.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie wrapped in a towelThree baths later most of the oil was gone…

…but I’m still pretty oily.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie is wet and greasyI know in the 50’s greasers were cool…

…but it’s 2018 now and this look is not cool.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie with his cute little tongue outLesson learned.

Don’t sneak into the pantry… The door could close and disaster could result.

Have a happy week!

Love,

Bow-Tie
