Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – April 2, 2018

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’s Bulletin – April 17, 2017

Bow-Tie and Annie Sullivan playingHappy Easter, everyone!

This is Annie Sullivan’s first Easter.

To make it special for her, we got her some Easter decorations.

At first she wasn’t quite sure of the texture the pretty grass offered.

She pushed it around and seemed very interested in this new feeling.



Annie Sullivan plays with the grassShe experiences things with her mouth to see what they are.

I told her this grass isn’t edible, and not to chew it.







Bow-Tie tells Annie Sullivan not to eat the grassShe didn’t listen.

When they don’t listen, youngsters sometimes have to find things out the hard way.

She learned Easter grass is not for eating.






Bow-Tie and Annie Sullivan playingShe was still very interested in the texture of the grass.

She started flinging it around pretty good.







Annie Sullivan dresses Bow Tie in Easter grassI think I actually heard her laughing as she tossed it on me.









Bow-Tie and Annie Sullivan playingShe tried to pat me and say she was sorry.

She’s young.

It’s Easter.

I was very willing to forgive her.





Bow-Tie and Annie SullivanBut then…


…I saw the silly look on her face, like she was all proud of herself…

…and she would do it again.

But I forgave her.

She’s young.

I love her.

And it’s Easter.

Happy Easter, everyone!

Don’t eat the grass.

From the Files of Mighty Lou – April 5, 2015

Dear Whitey and Friends,

It’s Easter. Another day for humans to do silly things. Another day I went along with it.

Mighty Lou Wearing Bunny Ears



I remember this day. Those ears seemed a little heavy and made me list to the right. Later on we straightened them up but this was a funny pose. Of course it never made the cut for the blog that year because it was a little off (in more ways than one). Since these are my notes coming from my files, I’m sharing it with you just for fun.







Mighty Lou and Sparkles

And then of course everyone wanted to get a closer look at the great Mighty Lou. ​Is she kidding me? Is that outfit a little outrageous? And nail polish? Her name is Sparkles for good reason.

But in all seriousness, I think about something else on this day. This is Easter – Resurrection Day. Resurrection means coming back to life. And isn’t that what every cat at Cat Depot does? We come back to life when we’re rescued. We get a second chance at life.

We come in there in one state or another but it’s always a state of need. We need medical care, food, love, human care. And that’s what we all get.


Mighty Lou's Easter Wish



Do on this resurrection day, please continue my work of helping cats, especially special needs cats. Do it for me, Whitey and Friends. Do it for the cats who need so much. (Donate to Friends Like Me)



And hey, Whitey and Friends……….





Mighty Lou as the Easter Bunny



​Smile when you remember me!

Love you,
Mighty Lou, Caped Crusader



Mighty Lou’s Easter Wish

Dear Whitey,

Happy Easter from Mighty Lou


Happy Easter my caped friend!

Today is an important day. Lots of people are putting on their Easter bonnets and celebrating at church. Lots of other people are getting out baskets, eggs, chocolate bunnies and colorful paper grass. I’m not allowed in church so guess what I’m doing?



Mighty Lou Celebrates Easter his way

I got me some plastic eggs, pink paper grass, a big basket and a purple ribbon. Mighty Lou is celebrating Easter!


Mighty Lou wears his purple cape for Easter



I wore my purple cape since that’s a good color for this day. I fit well in the basket and can hide lots of things inside.

You know me though, I don’t do anything half-hearted. Mighty Lou is always up for a party and ready for fun.

So I went along with this formal shot and did my part to look serious about this day. But I couldn’t hold the pose. I had to do it. I had to, Whitey. I just had to………

Mighty Lou Hams it up on Easter


That’s the Mighty Lou everyone has come to love! The party guy! It made you laugh, didn’t it? That’s what I like! A Mighty Lou induced laugh!

I did have a little mishap this Easter though. Miss Shelley sent me some new hats for my wardrobe. You’ll be seeing some of them in the future. Many of them were nice and I approved. But she went to far with this one.


Mighty Lou doesn't like his Easter bonnet


She sent me an Easter bonnet!

Me! Mighty Lou! I do not wear Easter bonnets! I’m a caped hero! Miss Shelley, thanks but no thanks…

Read my face…I do not like the Easter bonnet!

So Whitey hope you had a nice Easter with your family. Don’t let them put an Easter bonnet on you.

Might Lou being goofy on EasterAnd here’s to all the cats at Cat Depot…may you all find new homes really soon. And may that home not put silly Easter bonnets on you!

Love you, my friend.
Mighty Lou




Happy Easter to you too, Caped Buddy!

One bit of advice…lose the sissy, girl hat!  Give it to one of your sisters.

I have no pictures for you this week due to our big move tomorrow. I can’t find any of my stuff!  They even took my climbing perch. Pretty rude, don’t you think?

I think you look best in just your Cape. You are a handsome CAT, not a silly rabbit!

My Easter wish is the same as yours. Forever homes for all our friends at Cat Depot and an end to animal cruelty.

I’ll try to report on the move next week, if I can find the computer!

Meow till next time,
Whitey Wobbles


Mighty Lou’s Muttini Mingle

Dear Whitey,

Why do dogs have all of these events to go to and cats don’t have any? This week there was an event called Muttini Mingle. It was a party for dogs and kind of a pre-Easter event.

Easter Bunny


There was a human there in a bunny costume trying to convince the dogs he was the Easter Bunny. The dogs fell for it. Mighty Lou is smarter than that. I knew he was a human because he kept taking his bunny head off!


Mighty Lou Puts on Rabbit Ears to Celebrate Easter


Anyway, I’m always up for a party for I dressed for the occasion. Yes I know I’m listing a little to the left but those ears were hard to control. I was still cuter than any of those stinking dogs.


Well maybe I stand corrected.

Mighty Lou meets Sparkles


There was one dog who went way, way out of her way to come in full Easter finery. This is Sparkles and she certainly sparkled. She came over to see the great Mighty Lou and she couldn’t believe it. I couldn’t believe it either. I was looking square into her face and thinking “What are you thinking?” But Sparkles always comes in over-the-top outfits.

No, you won’t be seeing me in any get-up that outrageous.

Mighty Lou takes a stroll


At one point I had enough of those dogs sticking their head in my carriage to smell me. I took a little stroll outside to see what was what. Ahhhh….a moment of tranquility away from those dogs.

But wait.

Mighty Lou's Peace is interrupted by a visiting bird


Another intrusion into my Mighty Lou moment. A bird? Really? Come on. That bird can’t find another post to sit on so I can be alone?

The dogs were all having their pictures taken with the Easter Bunny. Late in the evening my mom wanted my picture with him. As soon as I got into his lap I had a famous Mighty Lou meltdown. It was the “yowl” heard around the world!

Needless to say I got put in time out and went home shortly thereafter.

Mighty Lou is angry that he has to wear bunny ears


But I ask you, Whitey, what cat wants to wear rabbit ears? And what cat wants to sit in a human’s lap when they’re wearing a stupid bunny suit? Not the great caped Mighty Lou. I was out of there!

Angry in ears, I am,
Mighty Lou
