Photo Hunt - Male

Darby here today.  We are joining in on Photo Hunt and the word today is male.  Here I am showing off the new Christmas cards we got in the male like the one I am holding from Rosie and Henry and another one from Fuzzy Tales' Nicki, Annie and Derry.

And this one from Hannah and Lucy all the way from England! Excuse me while I stretch - Mom woke me up from a nap to do this post.  ....What?  Just a minute here...Joey is saying something.....

Darby, I think they mean male as in me - like a mancat.  Not mail as in letters. It is spelled different!

Hey, I will spell male like I want to. And besides, if we got you in the post, we are covered, right? (For those of you who are wondering...I am a ladycat.  I can't help it if Mom thought I was a boy and gave me a boy name!)  For more male pics visit Photo Hunt!

Please make sure you stop by the Commentathon going on at Daily Dose of Dogs (aka Cats with Your Coffee to help Chrystal raise green papers  for a bigger cat kennel at her private shelter.Spread some cheer and help out too! auction to help Terry and her Cornish Rex cats pay vet bills for Brighton when he had an emergency crisis back in May - great stuff and lots for cats and home made too! Goes thru Dec 20.

Thankful Tabby Thursday

Hey it's me Tabitha helping Mom with the holiday cards and decorating.  Well OK, sometimes I am just being silly playing with the pompoms on the Christmas stocking!

On a serious note....we have so much to be thankful for this holiday season.  We are thankful for all our blogging friends, a warm safe place to live and that this year we are able to give to others.  Last year our family had a really difficult time financially but we  weathered thru it and now we can help others.

Please stop by and donate to Chrystal so they can build a bigger cat shelter for their homeless pet rescue organization and visit our "Flea Market" blog and buy a really spiffy vintage, gently used or new print or book (like the ones above) or jewelry, ornaments - all sales help feed and care for us and this month in the spirit of the season,  Mom is donating 20% of our intake to Chrystal.  

You can help out yet another way - We just found out that Chrystal is having a commentathon on her blog this weekend sponsored by another friend who will be donating 50 cents for each comment to Chrystal.  Please stop by Daily  Dose of Dogs from Friday thru Sunday!

We have gotten some really cool Christmas cards from our cat buddies - the Creek Cats and Four Crazy Cats.....

and Ginger Jasper (his card got all wet in the mailbox and Mom had to dry it out), Marge's Pets and Attie Cattie.  We will post more when we get them.

We are also thankful Woody is making himself right at home in the house and getting along with all the cats - more or less.  Doesn't he look relaxed in the sun puddle?

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.  ~G.K. Chesterton

Too Cold for Comfort Tuesday

View looking across the street.

You can see the snow being blown across our road.

We got 4 inches of snow on Sunday and then the Arctic blast blew in with temperatures in the mid teens for a high.  (Our average high for this time of year is 50 degrees!) Mom and Pop worked hard to make sure our generator was all clear, running and hooked up in case we lose power (which happens a lot out here).

The screen porch on the cat shelter.

Only snuggling on top of mom Lily.

They made sure the shelter was all snug with lots of cubby holes and fleece blankets for us white cats to nap in.  Don't worry it is heated and insulated but the screen porch is not - just a plastic cover over the screens. We stay indoors unless the sun is out and then it is toasty 70 degrees!

Mom in her L.L. Bean 30 below zero coat!

Mom went out to feed the birdies and secure all the loose items - wind gusts could get as high as 60 MPH!

Woody is checking out the feeders!

What were we all doing? Napping in our favorite spots, wacthing the birds at the feeders or jostling each other for the best spot on the heater!

Joey has dibs on the heater.

Snuggle time with Mamacita, Rosa and Yoko.

Hope you all are staying warm. This winter better not be a repeat of last year!  We may have to ask to move to Florida!
