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.

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,

Annie SullivanDear People Out There…

I am Annie Sullivan.

I keep hearing how cute Broshi is, and how Broshi is in a lot of Bow-Tie’s blogs.

Well, I’m here to tell you I am just as interesting as Broshi, and I may even be cuter.

(Of course, neither Broshi nor I know how cute we are, because we can’t see, but that doesn’t matter.)

It’s my turn this week!

 

 

Annie with ballI like to go outside. (Safely, of course.)

Usually, I take a toy with me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Annie with glassesSometimes I like to wear my glasses. Just to look cool, of course.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Annie with wingsSometimes I like to wear my angel wings…

…well, because I’m an angel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Annie with wings, ball, and glasses 2Sometimes I do all three things at one time…

…I play with my ball while wearing my sunglasses and angel wings.

That takes talent.

Try to do that, Broshi! Ha!

 

 

 

 

 

Annie in the bird bathWhen I’m not basking in the sun, I like to explore.

Don’t you think I could easily be mistaken for a beautiful garden statue?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Annie with lizardSometimes I like to meet new friends outside.

This guy didn’t talk very much, but he seemed nice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Annie in flowersSo next time you think Broshi is “all that,” think about how cute I am, and how interesting I am.

The name is Annie Sullivan.

I know you won’t forget me now.

 

Love to everyone!

Bow-Tie and BroshiDear Friends,

Look at Broshi, all dressed up this Easter weekend.

She likes all this pink and frilly stuff.

I’m not sure I get it, but she’s all into it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and Broshi super cuteShe tries to woo me into getting interested in her frilly things.

She’s so cute I can hardly resist, yet I find it difficult to show enthusiasm for pink frills.

I’m a manly cat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and BroshiHer soft, meowing please finally get to me.

I don’t really share her interest in pink frills, but I can help her.

I can give her someone who will love all her frilly things, and spend time with her.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi with her bearAs soon as I put Mr. Teddy the Bear next to her, she was immediately attracted to him.

She gave him a sweet little kiss – and I think he kissed her back.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi looking adorable with Mr. Teddy BearBroshi settled right in with Mr. Teddy the Bear.

She sensed his love of colorful things and she liked him very much.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi with her bearLittle Broshi found a colorful friend to share her love of frills…

…and they look happy together.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and Broshi super cuteHappy Easter, everyone!

Love from Broshi and from me, Bow-Tie.

We love you all!

Bow-Tie dislikes the cold daysDear Friends,

What’s going on here?

The calendar says spring has sprung, but there’s a cold front in most places.

Even here in Florida the chill is in the air.

Broshi and I have taken to sleeping most of the day away just to stay warm.

 

 

 

Bow-Tie just thought of somethingSleeping all the time doesn’t leave much time for anything else and it often gets boring.

But it’s tough to get out of this warm bed.

And then…

…I had a great idea!

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie enjoys optionsWhy not bring some snacks into bed with us?

When snacks are called for, they must bear the Bow-Tie seal of approval.

Ahhh… Bow-Tie snack crackers, now we’re talking.

And they come in flavors!

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie enjoys the day with Broshi and snacksWho wouldn’t love Bow-Tie snack crackers?

Everybody will love them!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie shows the breakfast of championsSo, next time it’s cold out and you take to your bed to stay warm, get some Bow-Tie snack crackers.

It’s the true Breakfast of Champions!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie winks and Broshi licks her lipsMoral of this story?

When the snacks are gone and Broshi is licking her lips in approval, it’s a good day in Bow-Tieville!

 

See you next week.

Love,
Bow-Tie
