The Meet And Greet - Thankful Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Pals,

On Caturday I got stuffed into the carrier again, only the destination this time was my human sisfur's house 45 minutes away - not the vet, which I am very thankful for.

If you remember on September 17, 2015, I did a blog on "The Other Half Of Our Family" and introduced Kim and Ken's new kitties to you (Tucker and Tanner).   

Tucker in MY PTU and Tanner under the table watching every move I made.

Well sisfur and M put their heads together and decided it was time for me to meet the new kitties cuz the deal is I'm supposed to live there if something happens to M and D.    I used to go to their house whenever my peeps were on vacation and their other two kitties and I got along (Amos and Keiko).   

I hate it when the humans get cock-a-mamie ideas such as this that involves us.  

The above picture shows my PTU, which sisfur opened up right away and I  took off exploring. Meanwhile I had two kitties watching me.   They never said a word while I roamed around upstairs.

Hey, I think I remember this place.  It's fun here,  but where are Amos and Keiko?

However, the minute I took off on a run for the basement to see if the litter boxes were still there, I had the patter of 8 paws running after me and 4 feet following the paws.   Sigh, a guy can't get away with anything.

The Humans had lunch and we kitties had a little lunch too.  Then, finally, M and D decided 3 hours was enough for the first visit.   Sometime soon I guess I have to go down there to stay overnight to see how that goes.  Then they will put me in my own room and let us kitties play pawsies under the door for a few hours.  

Tucker and Tannner haven't become territorial yet, so the humans feel it's best to take me there several times so that we all get used to each other.  M is really hoping that I will be a good boy and get along with Tucker and Tanner.

M and D were surprised that it went as well as it did. D thought they would have to make a quick exit 20 minutes after getting there, but I showed them. There was a little hissing by Tanner while we were downstairs, but he didn't attempt to advance towards me.   I can't remember if I hissed in return or not.   So stay tuned pals and keep those paws crossed that we can all get along.

We are joining @PepiSmartDog's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.   Hop on and join us!

Happy Veterans Day 2015

Thank you to all our veterans
past and those still serving. We
appreciate you  keeping us safe
and giving your service to our

Hi pals,

The peeps and I want to wish everyone a Happy Veterans Day.  Let's all remember what this day is all about and honor those individuals.   Many have died through the years protecting our freedom.  Many are still serving.  We appreciate all of you. 

D is a veteran after spending three years in the Army a hundred years ago.   He was stationed in Korea for 13 months, long before I was adopted.

My human sisfur's husband (SIL) served in the Wisconsin National
Guard for a few years.   And we thank him for his tour of service. While he did not see active duty, he was ready and willing, and we love him for it.

Do you have a veteran in your family or know one?   Surprise them and tell them "Thank You" today.   They will be surprised and love you for it.

Happy Halloween Caturday Blog Hop with Athena Cat Goddess


Hi Pals,

I am joining Athena The Cat Goddess' Caturday Art Blog Hop this week.  

The creation above was done in Pizap with a halloween overlay.   The photo is one I have used before.   They really have some nice overlays and/or borders for our use.  And, it's free.  Just take a little time to play around.   This creation took M all of about 10 minutes from start to finish.  That was enough sitting for her at the time.  I wish she could take a little more time to experiment with some of the other free programs out there, but I have to be thankful for what she does manage to get done.

Our Thanks to Athena and her human for sponsoring this blog hop again.  Go on over and check out all the neat pieces of art work - they are all really cool. 

Happy Halloween pals - don't let all the ghosts and goblins scare you today/tonight.   I personally will supervise M & D passing out candy from about 7 feet away so I can run and hide if I get skeered!  
Until next time,

Another Sad Day On Twitter - Louise Hobson

Louise Hobson 10/25/15
Human of @Petiethecat on Twitter
Petiethecat  OTRB 5-25-2012


Hearts are breaking on Twitter and Facebook today as we lost another human of a dear kitty pal.   After bravely fighting Cancer for 3+ years, Louise Hobson left her family behind to cross the human Rainbow bridge to join her beloved @PetietheCat.   We extend our deepest sympathy to her husband, Ken, and family.    

Louise and Petiethecat were dearly loved on Twitter by all who knew them.   We had lots of fun times together on line.   M so wishes she would have had a chance to meet Louise as she was a very interesting lady.  Even tho we never met in person, Louise was a special Twitter friend.  She will be greatly missed by all who knew her on Twitter.

Sleep well Louise!  M said someday maybe we will still meet across the Rainbow Bridge.

The Tocks of October Selfie - Blog Hop

Hi Pals,

I figured it was time I posted a picture of my tocks before October runs out.   So there they are for the whole world to see!   M was looking for a better picture, but she didn't find one.   Guess we haven't done a good job of taking the tocks' picture!  he he

I'm joining The Cat On My Head's Selfie Blog Hop.   Our thanks to the crew over there for their continually hosting the blog hop.  Be sure to check it out as they have a creepy guest host this week.

We're into snuggle weather here as the temp goes below freezing nightly.  That means I'll have my tocks plastered up as close to M as I can get them tonight to keep warm.

Hope you all are staying warm too.

My Prezzie For M - CRAZY Cat Lady Box #catladybox

Let's see if I can open it for her!  hmmmm

Hi Pals,

I surprised M last week by ordering a Crazy Cat Lady Box for her - full of goodies, and even a surprise for me.   Shh, don't tell her that I stole her credit card tho to do it cuz I don't have any $$ of my own.

There is a bunch of neat stuff in here.

Hmmm, wonder what that is?

You can order so that you will get a box each month (diffferent special items inside), or maybe like M, just get one box.    
Now what is in the bottom?

There were even a couple of special toys just for me!

To order a box for your human, contact Dorian Wagner on Face Book at

Or their the website:

Or via email at:

What a great Christmas gift this would be for your human.


P.S. - a portion of the proceeds each month goes to an animal charity.
