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!

Bow tie and his shadeDear Friends,

One word: Punxsutawney Phil

Okay… that’s two words.

And it’s two words too many for that Phil guy.

What’s his claim to fame anyway?

He saw his shadow?

I see my shadow every day of the week and I don’t get any big publicity.

 

 

Bow-Tie saw his shadowOn top of that, my shadow can do tricks.

It can be on my right side.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie saw his shadowThen it can switch…

…and just like that, it’s on my left side.

 

Can Phil do that?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sometimes, Bow-Tie's shade is longMy shadow can change shapes too.

Sometimes it’s regular size.

Sometimes it’s really long.

 

Can Phil do that?

I think not.

 

 

 

Where do shadows come from?So, next year let’s plan on ignoring Phil and watching me.

I’ll predict your weather for you… and I’ll do it better than Phil!

A cat is better than a rodent any day of the week.

 

Love you all,

Bow-Tie

Bow-Tie says hi from the cupboardDear Friends,

This one is a little embarrassing.

But I am an open and honest kind of guy, so here goes.

Whenever I see an open cabinet, I like to run into it.

There isn’t a reason, I just like to do it.

It doesn’t matter where the cabinet is. I just dive in.

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie likes climbing on the shelvesI’m pretty good at climbing and have no fear of heights.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie likes climbing on the shelvesThe view from high is exciting…

…and I feel like King of the World.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie panics if the door is closedThe problem is this…

…I FREAK OUT when the door is closed!

If I accidentally get locked inside a cabinet I go nuts!

Panic sets in and I thrash about like a lunatic.

 

 

 

 

 

"I thought I'd never see daylight again"Whew…

…I thought I’d never see the light of day again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie messed up the cupboardAnd then there’s the cabinet…

…there’s a pretty big mess left from the freak out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When the girls have to rescue you...The worst part?

The very worst part?

It’s the girls who send out the alarm that I need rescuing.

When blind girls have to rescue a guy – THAT is embarrassing.

 

Warning: Stay out of open cabinets!

 

Love to everyone,

Bow-Tie

Bow-Tie in his map bow tieDear Friends,

Today you’ll find out something you didn’t know.

Today you will see a side of me you didn’t know existed.

Today you will share one of my many pleasures in life.

Here’s a hint.

I’m wearing my Route 66 bow tie.

It’s what I wear when I go traveling.

Yes, traveling.

 

 

Bow-Tie outside the carHere’s another hint…

…it’s done outside.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie posting by a tireAnd a bigger hint…

…it involves the car.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie in the driver's seatYes folks, I love the car.

I love to go for rides.

When there’s nowhere to go, I like to play in the car.

Sometimes I sit up front and pretend I’m in charge of an adventure.

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie in the back seatSometimes I crawl into the back seat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie enjoying the carFrom the back seat I can pretend I’m being chauffeured around town.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie climbing between the seatsSometimes I can’t make my mind up between the front and the back…

…and I just ride in the middle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie dashboard surfingThen there’s the trickiest and most fun place of all…

…the dashboard.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie dashboard surfingThe dashboard requires great balance…

…and great spring action if you can’t balance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie in the back seatSo there you have it, my world of adventure.

 

When the car moves, I am secure in my carrier.

But when we’re not moving, I’m a dare devil!

 

Love you all,

Bow-Tie

Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – January 15, 2018

It started out so wellDear Friends,

I don’t like to complain, but you will feel my pain.

By the time you read my story, you’ll side with me.

We have many fur-members in our family.

I love them all and spend time with each of them.

All of them are feline, except one…

…this big, black, canine lug.

 

It all started innocently enough.

She wanted to sleep by me.

We each brought our own toy.

I had my prized foil ball.

She had her squeaky donut (a memorial to us Donut Kitties.)

 

 

No, you can't have my foil ball!She is young and thinks everything is hers.

We had to have a little meeting about the foil ball.

No one, but no one touches my foil ball.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie protects his foil ballI will protect my foil ball against anyone, at all cost.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"I didn't want it anyway"Being the goofy puppy she is, she gave me the old…

…”Na-nana-naa-nah! I didn’t want it anyway!”

(We all know she did want it.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie stares at the dogHey!

Oh no, you did not!

Get that out of your mouth!

Nobody touches my foil ball.

This means war.

 

 

 

 

 

Lose the dog, keep the toyMy solution?

Lose the dog and keep her toy!

Ha!

 

Have a happy week!

Love,

Bow-Tie

Bow-Tie posing with a glass and kitty-bottleDear Friends,

Happy Meow Year!

Yep, 2017 is over and we’re onto 2018.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie found a bottle that looks like a catNew Year’s Eve is the night to bring out the fancy black bow tie and the fancy drinks.

Have you ever seen a bottle shaped like a cat before?

Pretty cool.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie posing with a glass and kitty-bottleI’m generally a “glass is half full” guy, but tonight calls for just a little nip…

…catnip, that is.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie peeks into the fallen glassYes, Sir.

Catnip is my kind of New Year’s entertainment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie looks at the glass, licking his lipsTo me, catnip is lip-smackin’ good!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie with his nipSo eat, drink, and be merry.

Enjoy your New Year.

But no matter what you do, be safe and responsible.

I know my limit on catnip and I don’t let myself have more than I know I can handle.

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie gets home early for a cat napAnd I always get home early.

Cat naps, my favorite pastime.

 

Love you all!

The paper says, “Meowy Christmas.” That’s so cute.

 

It’s from my brother Boston’s mom and dad.

We are all sad Boston went over the Rainbow Bridge earlier this year and we still love him so much.

It was so nice of his mom and dad to remember a few of the Donut Kitties with a special gift.

 

 

Bow-Tie has a presentWow. They like to use a lot of tape, which is tough for a guy with no teeth.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie checks out the donutOh my gosh!

I can’t believe it!

Donut toys!

Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – December 18, 2017

Bow-Tie is sleepyDear Everyone,

I’m a little sleepy this week.

And I’m not even wearing a bow tie here in public.

There’s good reason, though.

It has been cold here this week and I’m just too comfortable under the covers to move too fast.

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie makes sure Broshi is goodI’ve also been making sure baby Broshi stays warm enough.

She comes to bed with me and I make sure she’s all tucked in.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie checks on BroshiOnce I know she’s comfortable, I can relax.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie is comfortable with BroshiAnd just when we’re all warm and snuggly it happens.

Just as we doze off, we feel it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie has a full bedThat big lug of a dog plops in for some Bow-Tie warmth and lovin’.

That’s okay.

We should always have room in our heart for one more.

 

Have a happy week!

Love,

Bow-Tie
