Saturday Photo Hunt:

Today's photo hunt word is
C A T:
common domestic animal, is what Mom found in the dictionary
Mom says there is nothing common about any cat she knows
they are all unique unto themselves.

Mom is happy to share this collage of the cats currently in our family

  
Joy is
a cat's purr
that bursts forth
suddenly
and for no reason
A rumble
amidst couch cushions
in late afternoon sunlight that
becomes rhythm,
~~Laura Cota

FINICKY FRIDAY





I need lots and lots of layers under my diva tushie

PSA
We have nasty weather coming in our area about daybreak today through 6pm Saturday.  Hopefully it is  all snow but we are hearing threats of sleet and freezing rain too. Bad combo
So if we are MIA it will be due to losing power.  Our furiends in Virginia up through DC area
are in for several feets of snow.  Hunker down good buddies

Tuesday Tale

Friday 1/15/16, 6 AM, started out Purrfectly...proper attention was paid to me
I was fed and my Fresh Flow water fountain had fresh water.  All was right with my world.
Fast forward to 1:30 pm when I was rudely shoved in my PTU, safety belted into the car
and off to the Vet for my mini Senior check up.  Which by the way I passed with flying 
colors.Weight 11.8 oz. I had only gained 1 ounce since July mom was sure I weight 20 lbs..., ticker fine, teeth tartar free and it was determined after some
squeezing and poking my insides were also purrfect.  They stole my blood to check my kidney 
enzymes.  We waited about 10 minutes for the labs to be run.  The enzymes were also perfect......
YAY ME!!!

BUT

 while we were waiting mom happened to see an animal/human age chart.
I'll be 14 in March...72 in human years!!!
She cackled like a hyena and nearly choked as she said
Madi....seems you are NOW the reigning 
Old Gray Mare  and you are 1 1/2 months older than your 
Dad!!! To which I replied...........
and she pours salt in my wounded ego by saying
she is NOW the youngest person in the house.
WOE WITH ME,  Mom aka formerly The Old Gray Mare will never let this rest.
After being thoroughly insulted, when we were ready to leave the Vet's.  It was raining sideways big fat rain. Mom can't carry an umbrella and my carrier so she wore a slicker.
Well friends the rain came in the door of my carrier and in the holes on top
MY PLUSH OLD GRAY MARE FURS GOT WET AND MY PINK  NOSE GOT WET.
THIS DIVA WAS NOT HAPPY. WHEN I GOT HOME, I HAD TO DO THE HOKEY POKEY TO GET THE RAIN OFF MY FURS.
What a day...mom says Madi you might be older than dirt but you have your
H E A L T H!!!
She must not know she is supposed to respect her elders!
Respectfully submitted
The NEW Old Gray Mare

THE END

Pubs, BARs and things

My good friend, Princess Leah, lives across the Pond.
She is a lucky Princess Pup with furry slippers.
She goes on all kinds of adventures, to parks, castles and she rides on trains.  Recently she talked about going with her peeps to a  
Pub for a Pint.  A Princess Pup in a Pub sounded very intriguing.  I hopped on the red eye without prior approval to see what that was all about.  Leah and I took a train to do some pub crawling hopping (thanks to Leah and Bertie for telling me the proper term is crawling...) MOL

We are incognito on the train 'cause Leah is a Princess and I'm a diva
Once at the Pub we made ourselves comfortable.
 Chit chatted about this and that. This diva cat was speechless when she learned exactly what a PUB and a Pint were....
Not only is Leah beautiful she is smart...
She told me a PUB is local place where  peeps go to meet friends, have snacks and play games.  She said she thought the folks in the USA called it a  BAR.  OMCs, you have got to be kidding me. I heard my peeps talking about going to a B.A.R. this summer
  To meet friends, have snacks and play games.  Leah said she heard about that too; however, it not the same.  It is  abbreviation for 
Blogville Awesome Retreat  
Evidently I have had my head in a hole or under a rock...
I had no clue...so I asked mom and YEP Leah was right!!

This photo shows the attendees as of January 2016.
Ms. Sydney from Chewy will be there too but
she is not in the picture

As you can see I'm pictured there too AND I am the only cat so far.
Mom will take Flat Madi to the B.A.R.
Because Fat Madi does not like to ride in cars and she doesn't like to have her routine changed.
It is PURRFECTLY ok if the 2 leggers come w/o their 4 leggers.  If you live in Indiana
or close by. you can just come for the day.  I have some Feline friends in the area and
I sure hope they will drop by to see mom and dad!!
Mom is looking forward to taking lots of photos with my friends.


 In case your head was in the same hole or under the same rock as mine click here 
to be transported over to the B.A.R. official website!!!
Be sure to bookmark it so you can check for
new information Plans are taking shape!!

Nuttin' is finer.....

than sun N...Carolina

OMCs I enjoyed all of the sun we had 4 out of 5 days last week....
I made sure to soak up every single bit I could.



It was 60 degrees yesterday.  Today we might have snow flurries and they say an arctic blast is on the way next week.  You gotta love North Carolina weather never a dull moment!
