It's a weekend of Hugs in memory of Bonnie who left us too suddenly. The Meezers had a great idea for a day of Hugs and then Derby thought that since a day was such a terrific idea, why not make it a whole weekend of Hugs?!?!? ~~~~~ I love hugging my sister-cat, China Cat! I hope that everyone has a Happy Memorial Day Weekend filled with ((((((Hugs))))))! ~~~~~ Here are some of the Wonderful Weekend Cat Events: ~~~~~ The Friday Ark is at The Modulator. ~~~~~ Weekend Cat Blogging #155 is being hosted by Katie & Puddy at A Byootaful Life. ~~~~~ Bad Kitty Cats Festival of Chaos Edition #46 is at The Catboys Realm, hosted by Kashim & Othello and is dedicated to Bonnie Underfoot, Attack Tabby. ~~~~~ Carnival of the Cats #219 is at The M-cats Club hosted by Mr. Tigger and also dedicated to Bonnie Underfoot, Attack Tabby. ~~~~~ ((((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))) to all this Holiday Weekend!
It's very sad that we had to lose Bonnie yesterday when she went to the Bridge suddenly. She was an Attack Tabby Extraordinaire and will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers and plenty of purrs go out to Victor Tabbycat and her whole family. And I want to wish Happy Birthday to ML. She is Mary Lynn of the Sherwood Bunch and a wonderful friend to all of us cats. Thank you to Zoolatry for emailing over these lovely graphics.
If you recall, last Wednesday I was on the couch looking at something. Some of you were right and it was China Cat. I looked down at China Cat and she was looking over her shoulder which made me curious as to what she was looking at. Oh, she was looking at a blue bucket. I wonder why there is a blue bucket in my porch??? She went over to see the blue bucket that she was interested in... She sniffed it and it seemed safe. China Cat is braver than me.After China Cat made sure it was OK I went over and looked too. There was water in the bucket with a soapy kind of smell so I didn't want to drink it at all. Then my Food Lady went over and took everything off of our cat area on the whirlpool spa. She said to me, "Willow, do you want to help me?" I love it when she says to me, "Willow, do you want to help me?" because that always means we are going to do something interesting. China Cat didn't like the soapy water in the blue bucket so she went over to the couch for a nap, but I jumped right up. ~~~~~ It was very clear what that soapy water in the blue bucket was for! There was nasty pollen all over our cat area! I was very helpful with my Food Lady. I walked around and pointed out all of the parts that she needed to clean for us. Seem how shiny it is getting now! Well, I think that this was a job well done! Now we won't have to lay down on pollen and bring it into the house. ~~~~~ Thanks, Food Lady, now I can relax on the cleanest of cat areas. How about a treat after all that hard work???
This is one of my favorite chairs. On top of this chair I can see where my treat cupboard door is! That is very important because if that door opens, you want to be sure not to miss getting treats! It's also very comfortable and it's easy to stretch out your legs on it. I enjoy having my legs hang down sometimes. There is even a nice blanket spread over to top of it for my comfort! ~~~~~ I hope that everyone is enjoying their weekend as much as I am... Tomorrow I will tell you what I was looking at on my Wordless Wednesday post! Don't forget the Weekend Cat Events: ~~~~~ The Friday Ark at The Modulator. ~~~~~ Weekend Cat Blogging is at Chey's Place. ~~~~~ Bad Kitty Cats Festival of Chaos #45 is at Bad Kitty Cats Journal. ~~~~~ Carnival of the Cats #218 is at Artsy-Catsy. ~~~~~ And, of course, head on over to the Cat Blogosphere for all of the latest cat news and make sure to send healing purrs to the ones who aren't feeling well!
Today is the 5th day of Doodle Week. And guess what??? For Manic Monday Not The Mama is going to donate Fifty Cents for everyone who posts a doodle of a cat today and leaves their linky on his post to help with Cat Friends Helping Friends! I am so glad to participate in this event! We are so proud of you, Not The Mama!
Happy Mother's Day to every Mom, Momma, Not The Mama, Food Lady, Lap Lady, The Woman and any Mothers that I can't think of to name right now! ~~~~~ My Food Lady seems to really enjoy feeding me. I get to have 1st Breakfast, More 1st Breakfast, a Snacky, Lunch, Late Afternoon Snacky, Dinner and of, course, we shall never forget...Pre-bedtime Temptations! ~~~~~ Therefore, you can see how the best day for my Food Lady on Mother's Day is to allow her to spend even more time feeding me! Do you think that my plan will work???
I had a lot of fun at the Cinco de Mayo Party over at KC and Missy's yesterday! There were lots of cats at the party and even Asta, who is a very nice woofie, came to the party! I had a terrific time but I think I'll have a nice, long nap today. Those were really good Catnip and Blue Fin Tuna Meow-garitas! I even tried the Lizquilla and I brought one home with me. Maybe I'll have it later after my nap! ~~~~~ I think I ate too much roasted chick-hen. I do so love roasted chick-hens! You can see my tummy is kind of hanging over the side because it is full of roasted chick-hen! I even got a badge to put on my blog! I may be a bit tired but I did survive the party! Thanks for a terrific time!
China Cat and I had so much fun at Gretchen's Tea Party on Thursday that my Food Lady let us have Tea Time with her out in the porch. She drinks tea every day but we are not really tea drinkers. While she had some Irish Breakfast Tea she filled our tea cups with our crunchy food! I was very careful not to knock over any of the pretty tea accessories. See how they all have cats on them! We even got to use a pretty lace tablecloth! ~~~~~ Oh my, Life is Good! I also wanted to thank everyone who came to visit for my May 1st Gotcha Day - it made it so special to hear from so many of you! Well, Tea Time is over and I had better go visiting! Look at all the Weekend Cat Events!!! ~~~~~ There is Weekend Cat Blogging which is being hosted by Kashim & Othello. ~~~~~ Bad Kitty Cats Festival of Chaos is being hosted by Luna at Catsynth, with an optional theme of music, art or technology.

Camie's Kitties are having a fundraiser today. For everyone who posts a Knock Knock Joke on their blog with a picture today, they will donate $0.50 to Mu Shue, Lilly Lu and Iris. They were the kitties that were lost in the apartment fire but then they were all found. Mu Shue was even a hero taking care of the girls. So here is my knock knock joke: ~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~ Now, there are lots of fun things going on today so I almost forgot Today is My Gotcha Day! Here is what I looked like on My Gotcha Day Four Years Ago Today! I always loved sleeping in my Food Lady's hats until I got too big for them! I will try to show some of those pictures very soon. But today I will be teleporting over to Gretchen's 4th Birthday Tea Party and Auntie Stinkie's Sweet 16 Birthday Party. Also, today it is Jake's Birthday, Plus Gandalf & Grayson have a Birthday today, Plus Tiger Lily & Ruckus have a Birthday today, Plus it is Chase's Birthday too. Wow, I had better get going!!! ~~~~~
