How I survived 8 days of freezing weather 

Prologue
Recently, during all the horribly cold weather, I found myself feeling  a bit (cabin) feverish.

I cleaned out closets, dust mopped floors, read books and cooked lots of soup.
I knew for sure I was feverish when a song came on the radio that made my feet happy.

Non-fiction
I 'volunteered' Madi to be my cha cha cha partner...her Dad doesn't dance.
Madi was quite cooperative or feared for her life.  Either way she hung on
and her tail swayed to the same music.  She sang, the song of her people 🙀, as my feet cha cha'd.
We even strayed far away from the good for us breakfasts we have had every week day for years. MadiDad always makes himself a fresh fruit salad and I always have a bowl of
little O's (cheerios) topped with a banana, both heart healthy.
However, each morning on my way in to the kitchen, I passed by the thermostat.  Each morning the temperature in the house was 63 or 64.  We have it set to be 69.
The voice of reason (aka party in my head) told me it was too cold in the house for cold a breakfast.
We enjoyed toasted bagels with a variety of jams and we treated ourselves to Peet's Coffee.
Major Dickason is our favorite flavor.

Fiction
To pass the long cold days I began to dream about lovely walks in the park on a spring day.
I was so busy enjoying the charming scene that I visualized in my head,
I didn't even realize that I had answered the door.
There before me was the woman
who'd spoken, to me many months ago as I walked in the park.
She was a sour-faced woman who accessorized herself
quite lavishly with fuchsia and lime green feathers, a bright orange straw hat
with a red ribbon.  I was not the least bit surprised when I noticed she had a Macaw on her shoulder.
I was about to start a conversation with her Macaw,  when a tiny noise brought me back
to reality. I was saved from great embarrassment by a tiny meow and nose tap letting me know
it was time for an itty bitty kitty to eat.

Puppy Love 
By madi and mom

When first he held his fuzzy pup to his chin,
his grin stretched from ear to ear.
His round eyes were full of glee
The smile on his face was oh so free.
He knew his new friend would follow him around his 
world and back again. Their love would grow
their bond would be tight.
At night as they snuggled close in the bed,
both tired but full of happy dreams to rock them
in to a slumber their shared.
Reminder:
That's right Blogville, save the date and start thinking of how you will be celebrating Valentine's Day in 
Paris!  
 Arty and Jakey will be back on Friday to give you more information!!

Royal Dreaming

Last week when the mail arrived I was sure my eyes were deceiving me...

Or perhaps I was dreaming... but then I distinctly heard
She came to invite me to a attend a very special event at the Renaissance Hotel on St Pancras Station
in London

 She assured me we would have a most wonderful time and there would be
lots of activities I would enjoy. She told me we had permission to roam and romp...
so we did just that.
We shared a pint at the BAR
 Princess Leah kept watch while I performed some of my most spectacular
high rail stunts on the Grand Staircase.

After an entire day spent romping, we had reservations Spunky's spa for some
royal funky Spunky treatment
Where they had some most unusual personnel


THEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN the most wonderful thing happend
we got all dressed up in fancy frocks and
The OMCs buttie pillars were let loose to fly about the
Grand Staircase as Princess Leah and I floated down the stairs to attend
the..................
After a most Magical Evening. Princess Leah and I had a sleep over.  OMCS
she let me sleep right on her bum and share her Princess Pillows.
We both had buttie pillars fluttering about in our dreams.

Let me just say this about that day...it was splendid and I'm most grateful to
Dearest Princess Leah for treating me like royalty.
Sincerely Madi(son) D Cat

Tuesday Tell all

Last Friday my Canadian Buddy Marv the Marvelous: Tails of a Persian Cat

 gave us a list of 5 questions to answer


Marv

Who is your hero?
Garfield he is afraid no nuttin', speaks his mind and most of all he is always right and Jon knows it.
Now if I could just figure out how to get mom to know I'm right!!
If you were to create a piece of art, what would the subject be? ME
That should not surprise anyone.  MOL
I have been the subject of a stain glass photo by our fiend Ramona and my Aunty K
made a quilt into the most amazing likeness of me 




What is the one thing that should be taught in school? This is  my only serious answer
Kindness and acceptance.  We pets understand it but the humans need reminding. 

Who would you take with you to a desert island?
#1 my peeps because they both have survival skills that are relevant to the care and tending of ME.
#2 Mama and Daddy of Mayor Arty 'cause they are the Jackie and Jacques Cousteau of Blogville.  They could provide us with fishies. Mayor Mama takes the most gorgeous above and  below the Sea Photos maybe she'll even a see a MerryMaid.
We thank Mayor Arty's Mama and Daddy for granting us permission to use this photo.




What are you really good at this is a 2 part question?
A: Jumpin'   


B: Boxes
As I was stepping down from my position as first Feline, Female Mayor in 2014
my friend Sarge hosted a Box Bash on January 10th 2014.  Every buddy showed their best Box moves.


Bonus Question:
If you were the ultimate ruler of the world, what is the first thing you would do?
Teach all my K9 friends how to use a litter box...so they wouldn't have to go out in to the cold, wet snowy, hot yucky weather.

Reminder:
That's right Blogville, save the date and start thinking of how you will be celebrating Valentine's Day in

For all having problems with commenting here is what YAM- aunty told me and how I did it
Thank you YAM-aunty

ATTENTION!
On the matter of Blogger comments delayed publishing issues which have been occurring of late; note that it appears to be only with those who have embedded comments forms - it is for this reason that I have changed mine to a pop-out box form, and I would encourage others to follow suit. Folk are not commenting simply because it has become too slow and irritates them. The pop-out is not particularly pretty, but it is still more effective at the moment. It does mean that there can be no direct replies; however, if I have your email addy and a reply is warranted, you will still hear from me! YAM xx

PS - feel free to spread the word - cut and paste the above if you wish. Ta...

Below is pasted from the area where I made the suggested changes:
Go to design in top right corner, settings, post comments and sharing
right under the word comments below the box you will see says 
embedded, click on pull down select popup window.
