Bow-Tie with his umbrellaDear Friends,

It has been raining cats and dogs here in Florida.

Every time I think I can go outside, it starts raining.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie with his umbrellaIt’s hard being cooped up inside all the time.

I called my friend Hunter in California.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hunter upside downHunter says it’s really, really hot there right now, and they don’t have air conditioning.

Hunter is not amused by the heat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie with his umbrellaHe made me realize something.

There’s weather everywhere. And there’s nothing we can do about it.

So why complain?

 

See you next week!

Love,

Bow-Tie

It sounded like footsteps…

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie says, "Oh no."…and they were getting closer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie is getting a toy, from the dogOh no…

Bow-Tie and Broshi with a packageHi Friends!

Guess what?

For the second week in a row, I received a gift!

The gift was addressed to me, but guess who showed up.

Broshi thinks she gets everything.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie checking out the packageThis very special gift came from my kitty friends Blondie, Jackson, and Eddie.

They know I’m a donut kitty, and I think they think that’s cool.

There’s all kinds of goodies inside.

There’s treats, donut play toys, and uh oh…

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie got a package with a bow tie…one of the packages even has a bow tie on the front!

Blondie, Jackson, and Eddie sure have a special mom who always remembers me.

What could be inside?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie with a donut pillow and a donut bookIt’s a squishy donut pillow!

There’s a donut pouch and a donut book, too.

This is sooooo cool!

You probably think my face doesn’t reflect my joy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie sings with joyHow’s this?

I’m singing with joy!

I love my wonderful donut gift bag.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie looking cuteAnd yes, I did share the treats with all of the girls.

Have a wonderful week.

Donut worry, be happy!

Bow-Tie sporting a flamingo bow tieDear Friends,

I know it doesn’t show on my face, but I’m very excited.

They’re really small, but there are flamingos on my bow tie.

Why are there flamingos on my bow tie?

Because I got a present in the mail, and it was a flamingo.

(I always try to dress for the occasion.)

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie with his new boxAnyway…

I received a package in the mail from my good buddy Mike, who lives in Texas.

At first I thought the box was the gift.

Cats like boxes, you know.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie got a ball!But I chose to open the box to see what was inside.

Out popped a huge flamingo beach ball!

I have always wanted a beach ball and my friend Mike remembered.

It is much bigger than I am.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie getting close to the cameraWhat else do you do with a beach ball but set it afloat.

So off it went.

It was fun to watch the breeze gently steer it around in the water.

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie says Thank YouIt’s really nice to be remembered and loved by my Texas friend.

The beach ball made me happy!

Remember to remember your friends.

It will make them happy, too.

 

Love you all,

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.

Love you all,

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

I’m stuck posing with red and purple beads.

That can only mean one thing.

We are headed to a cat show themed “Red Hat Cats.”

 

 

 

 

Broshi packing her suitcaseBroshi is all excited.

She packed herself with all her red and purple girly things.

She’s going to go into the show ring and strut her stuff.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi with her paw on the hatBroshi loves girly things.

She likes to “feel” the pretty.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi with beads and boaSo, we’re off to the cat show.

Here’s hoping Broshi lets her special needs kitty light shine brightly for everyone to see.

And here’s hoping people will recognize special needs kitties for all they can be.
