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 with beadsDear Friends,

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 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,

Bow-Tie

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

…but it’s a special occasion, so I decided to go big.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie looking at BroshiLittle Broshi wanted to celebrate and put her pretty green dress on.

Should I let her sit with me?

Should I let her celebrate with me?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and BroshiThe answer is simple… of course she can.

She’s a little sweetie.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and BroshiJust look at her cute little face.

Who could resist?

Certainly not me!

Broshi is ready to goHi Everybody!

It’s me…

…Ambrosia, but you can call me Broshi.

I’m all dressed up, because I went to a party. Bow-Tie is letting me tell you about it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi, Nancy Colby, and BettyIt was a fancy luncheon for the benefit of cats and dogs.

I got to sit at the table with all the other ladies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lunch is servedMy nose started working overtime when the food was served.

I’m not quite sure what it was, but it smelled good.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi wonders what's for lunchNo reason not to take a closer sniff.

A well mannered lady doesn’t touch, so I didn’t.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi and RoxanneOne of the pretty ladies there wanted to hold me.

She was very nice and had a good lap.

Next time I think I’ll wear a hat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi took the bedAll in all it was a wonderful day…

…but I was very tired when I got home.

Bow-Tie said I needed a nap.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi tired at the end of the dayThank you to all the ladies who made the day so much fun, and for supporting the animals.

Thank you to all of you for reading about my adventure.

 

Love,

Broshi and of course,
Bow-Tie

Bow-Tie, the dapper gentDear Friends,

My name is Bow-Tie.

My style is dapper.

My trademark is the bow tie.

This should not come as a surprise to anyone.

I’ve been around for a while and you have all seen my dapperness (that’s my word.)

What you may not know is, I am very careful to match my surroundings.

By that I mean I choose my bow tie based on my event.

 

 

 

Bow-Tie matches his surroundingsOne very important event is eating.

So, what else…

…but a bow tie that matches my bowl and placemat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi shows off her bow tieSometimes one of the girls get in my space.

She knows she can stay if she comes dressed for the occasion…

…and Broshi knows how to strut her stuff.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and Broshi waits for dinnerShe gets to stay and share a meal.

Sharing and looking good while you do it.

That’s the Bow-Tie way!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dinner is overWith love from,

Bow-Tie, The Dapper Gent and Broshi, too!

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
The Dapper Gent
