Charlie Br0wn's Christmas....

The vet was here a couple of days ago (traveling vet! because she is great, and we have a house FULL of cats and dogs, its easier) and our elderly kitten on the left here, Emily, is getting kinda old and frail. Nearly 17. But then she got up on the table yesterday and tried to eat our dinner (NONONO!) which is so naughty and catlike. Anyway, I want lots of photos of her and Buster (our nearly 12 year black lab) these days, healthy and happy, because I worry we don't have too much time left with those two.
And like I am drawing below, Spike cat singin' it: CAUSE THESE ARE THE GOOD OLD DAYS!!!!!!

You know how in the Charlie Br0wn Christmas special, its always snowing fat flakes? That has been the case here for five days, and until yesterday morning it was all for show. We got A LOT of snow last night, and I'll get photos later.

Our new dinner set below, lookin' awesome in use eh? We have some skulls plates that fired yesterday, cannot wait to add them to our collection.

Karen is like, "I need an owl vase!" and I am like "CAN DO!" and I sneak a couple of mice on there, skulking about...

Groovy new items like this zebra cup at my etsy shop now!

It could be my imagination, but it looks like Penny is smirking over being carried around.

I think Penny looks like she's about to fly out of Maude's arms, and straight into outer space.

Talk about service! I say I need an owl, and there is my owl! I love it! I know it's new owners will too!

Oh Gary this is such a sweet Blog. You and Maude are the sweetest couple. I love your sentiments about sweet, little, frail, Emily; and darling, aging Buster. We too worry about our critter friends all the time. Emily is going on 11, and Max is 8. You are right to enjoy them every moment we are blessed to have them. Same with our Spouses and friends...adore while we can, and often (like every minute)...! :) Love your work, and photos!

You are making me all sad this morning, thinking about the future loss of Emily Kitten and dear old Buster.

I think I was dreaming about them a few nights ago. (Why the heck would I be dreaming about YOUR pets?!?)

Susan as Herself said...

Look how tiny Emily looks next to that Spike. Awwwwwwwwwww. I bet Chief would put her to shame as well---all 15.3 cubby pounds of him!!! The vet wants to put him on a diet... :(

The mood for Christmas is different for everyone...mine is warm and glowing with good wishes for all.

The owl is great! Do you have any angels???
