Sunday Musings

Happy Sunday everyone! Yesterday was Mom’s birthday, so we’ve been giving her extra cuddles this weekend.

Good news! Okey’s Promise passed it’s funding goal and @BZTAT can go forward with her project. Congratulations @BZTAT and Okey’s Promise!

Pals been asking about my Turbo Track cuz we got two of them arranged together. So here’s what it looks like. We love it! We all gather around it with Mom and play with it. We roll the balls to Mom and she rolls them back to us. It’s just so much fun.

Speaking of fun, here’s a picture of my favorite ball. It’s just about an inch or so big and it’s my favorite ball for playing fetch. Problem is, because it’s little it gets misplaced a lot and I’d like to have more of them. But Mom can’t find any in the stores and doesn’t remember where she bought this one. So if you see this ball anywhere, DM me on twitter (@pumpkinpuddy) and tell me where so Mom can buy it. EK likes it too, so we need lots of them for sharing.

We recently got a wonderful present from @Staffpurrson. It’s one of the Harry & David boxes that @Mulder_cat and @Scully_cat are so fond of. It came with all kinds of surprises in it.

Just look at all the fun in there! We got Temptations treats, and some Luna Tuna, some great toys, a nice fleecy pad and something we’ve never had before – crinkley paper! We’re just loving everything in this box. Or I should say EK & Candy are loving the box and everything in it. I can’t get near any of it cuz they’re toy hogs. At least I get treats & Luna Tuna. Nommy!

Look how funny EK is. There’s not room for both of them in the box so he just climbed right on top of Candy. But she doesn’t mind. They bonded at Duncan’s Place and just love each other so much that they climb on each other like this all the time.

Here’s more pictures of them cuddling. In fact, it’s hard to get pictures of them not together.

And here I am in all my floofyliciousness!

Aren’t I gorgeous?

Gotta go watch football with Mom now. She’s rooting for Green Bay and the Steelers today, but especially the Steelers. Happy Sunday everyone!

Sunday Musings

We must be the luckiest kitties in the whole world! We got wonderful stuff for Yule. Take a look!

A couple of these are videos so you may need to go to Picasa to see them.

Our pal Sweet Praline is pawticipating in Paw it Forward. We told her we wanted to pawticipate, too. So for our Paw it Forward we’re gonna give some of our toys to the local shelter. We were gonna take them today, but we were talking to @BabyPatches at the #catmasweve pawty and found out her mama put lots of stuff on sale for after Catmas. So Mom ordered some more stuff from Nip and Bones to add to it. When that stuff gets here, Mom’s gonna take it to the local shelter. I think we’ll send Evie to snoopervise and report back on the visit.

This has been an interesting year. It started out kind of iffy. As some of you remember, we almost didn’t get to keep our pretty house. But the bank people finally saw sense and fixed things so we could afford to keep paying.

Then in the summer, Mom went to Massychewsits. She was gone a long time and I was very lonely without her even though I had a kittysitter. So when Mom came home, I got antsy every day when she went to work. I was always afraid she’d leave me alone again for many days. Mom decided I needed fursibs so I’d never be lonely again. At first I wasn’t thrilled with the idea, but as usual, Mom’s right. Now that the squirts have been here a while I really like them. And I love having playmates. Even though I like them I’m still gonna call them squirts. MOL

We made some wonderful new furriends this year, but lost some of them before we even really got to know them. I miss Inigo very much. I’m glad Ryker decided to tweet from OTRB because otherwise I’d miss him something terrible. And there were Sniffie, Mookie, Hollie, and so many others. It’s been a very sad fall. I wish we didn’t ever have to be sad, but just the fact that we’re here, blogging, tweeting, and making and losing furriends just shows how lucky we are. Every time I lose a furriend, I think of all the poor animals that don’t have homes or furriends at all. Or worse, homes where they’re abused. The fact that we’re all loved the way we are truly does make us the luckiest animals in the world.

‘Summer at the Lake with Petie’ did fairly well. 43 copies sold, allowing me to donate over $160 to Duncan’s Place. My goal was 100 copies, but I guess that wasn’t a realistic goal and I’m pretty happy with how the book did.

Mom’s coming up on a very busy time at work, so I’m not gonna get much computer time the next couple of months. Please forgive me if I don’t comment on your blogs. I am coming by to visit even when I don’t let you know I’ve been there. I do want to keep up on what’s going on with my pals.

I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year. I hope the coming year brings peace and love to everyone, especially those that don’t have it right now. I wish everyone in the world had as much love in their lives as we have in ours.

Thankful Thursday

So far I’ve sold 34 copies of Summer at the Lake with Petie. Today I received my first payment in the amount of $119. I haven’t been paid for all the copies yet so there’s more money coming (but not until next month)! I took great joy in going to Duncan’s Place and clicking on their donate button and donating that money. As both Blurb.com and Duncan’s Place both use Paypal, it was very easy.

Ordering is very easy, too. Just click on the picture below and it will take you to the order page!

The deadline for ordering in time for Christmas in the U.S. is December 12. Blurb.com delivers all over the world, so don’t think you can’t order if you live outside the U.S.

Thank you to everyone who has or is going to order Summer at the Lake with Petie. And Happy Holidays to all!
