Can you see me?

No, you can’t.

None of my sisters can find me either.

This is my place.

It’s private, but I’ll let you see…

…come on in.








Bow-Tie with his crinkle ballsThis is my place for my things.

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,

The Dapper Gent

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.

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,

The Dapper Gent

…I love crinkle balls.







Bow-Tie with his crinkle ball I love them soooo much.

You also know I don’t have any teeth, but I have no problem grabbing crinkle balls.








Bow-Tie shows his lack of teethSee… no teeth.

No problem.








Bow-Tie retrievesThe other thing I love to do is retrieve the crinkle balls.









Bow-Tie retrievesI will run after them and bring them back as long as someone will throw them.









Bow-Tie looking forward to playing with his crinkle ballRetrieving.

That’s a dog thing, right?

Nope. It’s not just for dogs.

I can retrieve just as well as any dog.






Bow-Tie says, "Take that, dogs!"Grrr….

Bow-Tie says, "It's that time again..."Dear Friends,

What time is it?

Time to change the clocks again.









Raise your paw if you're confused about the changesIf you’re confused about changing the time, raise your hand.

Me too!










Raise your paw if you want to sleep inJust when we get used to the time being changed one way…

…we have to change it back the other way.










Bow-Tie is ready to change his clockThere’s nothing we can do to change the changing.

If we don’t do it, we’ll be showing up either early or late for the next six months.

So let’s all just line our clocks up and spring ahead one hour. Than means we’ll have one more hour of darkness in the morning, but more sunlight in the evening.

We have to stay that way until the first Sunday in November.




Let's just do itLet’s all just do it…

…spring ahead one hour.








Bow-Tie says time changes are yuckyWait!

One less hour sleep?

Oh, I don’t like that.

Take that, spring ahead Daylight Saving Time!









Bow-Tie poses with his clockWho invented this system anyway?

Have a happy week, even though it will be one hour shorter.


Love you all,
The Dapper Gent

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.



Broshi and of course,
The Dapper Gent

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!
