Cat's Bill of Rights #14

I have the right to nap at any time and place 
(counter top snoopervising the meal prep)
I darn well please without distractions
(on top of the exact page of the newspaper Mom is reading)

 of being called or moved just because you may want to
use the computer or take a nap  
 or you might need to get into the cold box
(I only move if you are preparing my food)

Madi hanging........

Madi is normally curled up in a ball in this chair; however, on this particular
day she must have been so comfortable and warm she didn't realize she was in this vertical position
with her tail flapping in the wind.  This is also my chair at the table....needless to say I take Madi to work every day on the seat of my slacks.

Thursday Theme Song: I just called to say I Love you

Madi and I thank Hootin' Anni for sponsoring today's
Theme Song Thursday.
I think Madi's face is a purrfect example of the song's title
'I just called to say I love you'
written and performed by Stevie Wonder
Enjoy, Madi and Mom

It is beginning to look a lot....

at our house...  Mom and Dad fought with the tree put up the tree this past
SCORE: Tree 0 Mom and Dad WON!!!
My favorite part of the tree is the tree skirt.  Dad's Mom made it a long time ago.  It is very soft and as you can see I love sitting under my tree basking in all 600 lights.
Mom and Dad's favorite things are the ornaments.  They have been collecting
ornaments from Crate and Barrel and Pottery Barn for several years.
This year 50% of the ornaments on the tree are from Crate and Barrel and Pottery Barn.
We'd like to show you some of them.  You may biggfy any of the pictures by clicking on them.

Mom loves her Angel Tree Topper
BUTT she says I, M A D I, am her favorite ANGEL under the tree.
Thanks for visiting us today,
Madi and Mom

It's finally here.....


I've been saving my pennies to buy Mom and Dad just the right gift
I better check to make sure all the parts and pieces are here.... 

 I really hope they like it
 I think I'll sit right here so I can see the look on their faces when they walk in the door
 Yep they like it they squealed really loud...I had to remind Mom to use her inside voice
I knew they wanted a Bose Wave Music System and CD changer so
that is what I got them for Christmas.  It came on November 24, 2010.
I know I should have made them wait until December 25
but I WANTED THE BOX so I let them open it.
 Mom really I do not see any eggs.  What are these egg crate thingies? 
 Did I ever tell you I LOVE BOXES??!!
 This was a win win gift...I got my box and they got their box all set up in
their room.  Trust me when I tell you their box can be heard in every corner of the house.
What beautiful sounds it makes too.
Originally they wanted it on their night stand...BUT all the fancy instructions said
it would be best enjoyed several feet away and the cord should be as straight as possible
they put their box way up high...Not to worry though it came with a remote.
It is set to all their favorite radio stations.  The cd changer is loaded with Kenny G, Ottmar Liebert, a classical guitartist, and Mr. Bill Leslie a local musician.
I might not ever be able to get them up to feed me!!!
Maybe this wasn't such a good idea after all??!!

PS today is the finale for X-paws over at Ruthie and Mr. Pip's.  We highly recommend you drop by for a visit.  Ruthie and Madi have had a whirlwind trip around the globe.

Sunday: Cat's Bill of Rights #13

I have the right to inspect any grocery or food item that comes into the home.

Further, I have the right to inhabit any paper bag
or cardboard box that you bring home for as long as I wish.
