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…

…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.

Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – December 26, 2016

Bow-Tie wishes everyone a Merry ChristmasMeowy Christmas, Everyone!

It’s Christmas morning as I write this.

It makes me think about what’s been going on, and what’s really important.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie under the wrapping paper. It's a cat thing. There was all the wrapping to do.

People get all stressed out about it and make it a big deal.

To a cat, it’s simple…

…jump into the pile, then take a nap.

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and Courage shoppingThere was all the shopping to do.

People get stressed about about that too.

To a cat, that’s simple too…

…get what’s important and get on with it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Everyone togetherThen there’s the gifts.

Cats like gifts too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love this toy!But cats’ needs are simple…

…just one little something makes us very happy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nap with someone you love - Bow-Tie and Courage sleepingWhen it’s all said and done,

one thing is the most important.

Spending time with someone you love…

Adopting a cat will give everyone someone to love.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But then one question remains on Christmas morning…

Bow-Tie wonders who will clean up the mess.

Yikes! Who’s gonna clean up this mess?

Merry Christmas.

Love,
Bow-Tie

Bow-Tie got a cardDear Friends,

Look what I got!

I got a Thanksgiving Day card in the mail.

It’s from my friend Mike and the Kitties.

He’s generous with Cat Depot, and is especially generous with the Friends Like Me Fund.

Thank you, Mike and the Kitties!

(Yes, you do see someone trying to sneak into the picture.)

 

Bow-Tie feels specialI feel pretty special that someone remembers me so often, and helps my special needs friends.

I feel pretty special indeed!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and Annie SullivanThe card makes me think about things I’m thankful for, and I have a lot of things.

I was saved from a very, very bad situation, and now I have a wonderful home.

And as I look around I see my special friends who love me, and I love them back.

We all need friends.

We need each other.

So, my short and sweet message this week is to be thankful.

Be thankful for what you have and find good in everything.

 

Bow-Tie sees the bright side of lifeThere is good in everything.

Sometimes we have to look a little harder than other times, but we can find good if we look.

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and Annie Sullivan say Happy ThanksgivingHappy Thanksgiving, my dear friends.

Don’t eat too much turkey!

Love,

Bow-Tie in hat and bandanaHowdy Pardners!

Excuse my unsightly costume.

It’s way beneath me, but I wore it to make a point.

We need to talk about this Halloween thing again.

Halloween can be dangerous for your cats.

You will likely be opening and shutting the door all night.

It’s very easy for your beloved cat to slip out the door.

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie demonstrating outdoors

Once outside, they will become confused.

They really didn’t mean to run out.

They were afraid of all the commotion and just got lost in the shuffle.

If you don’t see them right away it only gets worse.

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie in the jungleThey can become very afraid and try to hide.

They may not even come if you call them, once you realize they’re gone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie outdoorsThey won’t like it out there, and they won’t know what to do.

I’m not trying to make you feel bad.

I just want to remind you to keep your kitties safe on Halloween night.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie snuggled up in bedYou know where they want to be.

Snuggled safely in the house.

Please keep an extra eye on them, or lock them safely in a room away from the door.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie looking extra cuteConsider this a reminder…

…from someone who knows how kitties think!

Enjoy Halloween and be safe.

Love you all!

Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – December 14, 2015

Dear Whitey,

Things are in full mode “Holiday Spirit” over here.

It’s official now… the tree is up.

Well, MY tree is up.

What do you think?

Bowtie with his new tree

Quite the collection, don’t you think?

 

Bowtie putting a finishing touch on his tree

Oh, wait.

One more adjustment…

…Now it’s purrfect.

This will be my first Christmas.

Never before have I lived in a home.

Never before have I felt loved.

Never before have I been happy.

 

 

Things are different now!

I am so thankful to have a home of my own, someone to love me, and food every day.

My Christmas wish is that every cat at Cat Depot has the same happiness I do.

And if the special needs cats would be the first to find homes, I would be over the moon!

 

Now, I hear the tradition is to put milk and cookies out for a guy who comes down the chimney.

I won’t give up the milk and I don’t have any cookies, but…

Bowtie preparing for Santa Paws

…I have something more valuable to put out for him.

Bowtie waiting for SantaEveryone likes crinkle balls, don’t they?

 

Bowtie and Courage talking about SantaCourage has never had Christmas either.

This is the first time she has a home, love, food, safety, and is pain free.

So we had a little meeting.

“Yes, Courage, there is a Santa. He sends angels to adopt us and love us. You and I are very lucky.”

We’re on our way to a Merry Christmas.

I’ve got this one!

Love,
