Bow-Tie wishes everyone a Happy Labor DayMy Dear Friends and Countrymen,

(It’s a national holiday so see what I did there in the greeting?)

This is my official Labor Day pose.

I’m dressed right and surrounded by the red, white and blue of the day.

Thank you to everyone who works so hard to make this country great.

I’m a hard working cat so I intend to celebrate Labor Day with everyone else.

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie wishes everyone a Happy Labor DayI may have made a mistake though, including all of these toys in my props.

Toys attract youngsters and youngsters mess things up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and BroschiAs soon as they get on the scene…

…stuff gets messed up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broshi playingIt’s ok.

She’s cute.

We’ll let her play

Besides, she dressed for the occasion.

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and BroschiSo Happy Labor Day to everyone!

I’ll be laboring to clean her mess up once this photo shoot is over. Ha ha

Love you all!

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

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 has a really big bow tieThis bow tie is bigger than my normal bow ties…

…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!

Bow-Tie posing with a glass and kitty-bottleDear Friends,

Happy Meow Year!

Yep, 2017 is over and we’re onto 2018.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie found a bottle that looks like a catNew Year’s Eve is the night to bring out the fancy black bow tie and the fancy drinks.

Have you ever seen a bottle shaped like a cat before?

Pretty cool.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie posing with a glass and kitty-bottleI’m generally a “glass is half full” guy, but tonight calls for just a little nip…

…catnip, that is.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie peeks into the fallen glassYes, Sir.

Catnip is my kind of New Year’s entertainment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie looks at the glass, licking his lipsTo me, catnip is lip-smackin’ good!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie with his nipSo eat, drink, and be merry.

Enjoy your New Year.

But no matter what you do, be safe and responsible.

I know my limit on catnip and I don’t let myself have more than I know I can handle.

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie gets home early for a cat napAnd I always get home early.

Cat naps, my favorite pastime.

 

Love you all!

Bow-Tie posing with a presentDear Friends,

Meowy Christmas!

This gift came for me a week ago and I haven’t been allowed to open it.

Today’s the day!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie opens presentHere we go.

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 posing with his new toysI am very thankful for this gift.

I am very thankful for family and friends.

I am very thankful for YOU.

 

Love you all,

Meowy Christmas!

Bow-Tie waking upDear Friends,

It’s that time of year again.

Big yawn, because it’s the same old thing every year.

It’s the time of year we pets call, “Humor the humans.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie with SantaOne guess what we had to do this weekend.

We had to go see Santa.

I wasn’t impressed, but the little girls wanted to go.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is Santa choking Broshi?It’s Broshi’s first Christmas, so it was important for her to go.

However…

…when Santa first held her, he put her in a choke hold.

That isn’t good for the cat, or for the photo.

I had to have a talk with him.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Courage and SantaHe did better with Courage.

She’s not one to be put in an awkward position, and I think he knew that.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pilot and SantaAnd then there was the dog.

She had to have her picture, because it’s her first Christmas too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Santa with BroshiWe finally got a nice picture of Broshi…

…minus the choke hold, thank you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pilot with antlersAll in all it was a fun day and I’ll say this, cats have it better than dogs.

When cats go to see Santa he may not know how to handle us, but we still look good.

Only a dog would allow a human to humiliate them publicly and enjoy it.

You’ll never see a cat wearing stupid antlers.

 

Happy Santa photos, everyone!

Love,

Bow-Tie

Bow-Tie is a donutDear Friends,

I hope your Thanksgiving was enjoyable.

Me? I’m stuck back at Halloween.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie is literally a donutRemember the donuts?

Remember my donut costume?

Just when I thought this was in the past, it has come back around.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Guess what?

I got a call from a local pet supply store; Cats n Dogs.

They said I won Best Cat Costume in their contest!

 

Bow-Tie and Miss NancyHow exciting!

I went right over to Cats n Dogs to collect my prize.

Miss Nancy owns the store and is a really nice lady.

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie won a scratcherShe gave me my prize.

It’s a really nice cat scratcher complete with cosmic catnip.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie finds the good stuffThat’s not all.

She pulled out a special box with some heavy duty catnip.

Far out!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie found free treatsThe best part was I got to surf her counter.

Of course I found the free samples.

It was for dogs and too hard for me to chew, but I sure licked it pretty good.

(No, the samples weren’t chicken feet. I wanted no part of that.)

 

 

 

Bow-Tie is a donutMoral of this story?

It pays to be a donut!

 

Love to you all!
