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

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

No problem.

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

That’s a dog thing, right?

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,
Bow-Tie

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, 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!

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

Today’s the day!

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 discovers it's catnip!Uh oh… wait a minute…

…there’s catnip in them!

Catnip donut toys!

Way to go, Boston’s mom and dad!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Bow-Tie licks the donut toyThis is a great present!

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

Can you ear me?Dear Friends,

Can you ear me?

Hahaha!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Light on Bow-Tie in the boxLet’s shed some light on the subject.

I’m so happy this time of the year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie in the boxThis is the time of year us cats are entertained by the simplest thing…

…a cardboard box.

We love cardboard boxes.

Any size, any shape, any condition.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie is king of the boxThe box provides a great lookout post.

We can watch everything from this viewpoint and not be bothered by anyone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie peeks over box edgeWe like the ones that hold our whole body…

…but give us the flexibility to peek out if we want to.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie looks out from boxWe can spend the whole day in the box, surveying our little world.

(Yes, I know the one nail needs to be clipped. We’re on it, don’t worry.)

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie in the boxSo humans, you’ve probably got a lot of boxes around the house right now.

A new one may be arriving every day.

Before you throw anything out, remember your cat…

 

 

 

 

 

Can you ear me?…and throw that empty box their way. Then, watch them entertain you.

 

Did you ear what I said?

Love,

Bow-Tie
