Because of Madi, I took a leap into the blogging world.
So I thank Madi and remember her each day.  

In celebration of today, I found a few post containing Madi  factoids about her 
Diva Self

1. I'm spoiled (I know that is a surprise)
2. I do not sit in anyone's lap!! Much to the dismay of Mom
(the first family kitty was 100% lap kitty)
3.I talk non stop
4.I was a wild child when the peeps first brought me home.
5. Mom lost me several times (in the house)
not to worry though I knew exactly where I was...sleeping in the master closet.
Once I wanted to 'help' mom.  I followed her in and out of the closets....but she didn't know.  When Mom finished, she and Dad went out to supper....not knowing I was in the closet.   When she got home she finally missed me...could not find me in my usual places. So she started bellowing as she walked around the house.  She kept hearing a knock, was me jumping against the closet door. Now I announce myself when I'm 'helping'!! I gave her my back of disrespect til time for a snack.

1.  Describe yourselves in 7 words
Madi: Diva, talker, love MOM, golden/green eyes, PhD in Sunpuddles, snoopervisor
2.  What keeps you up at night.
Madi:  Absolutely nothing...I'm a world class sleeper 20 hours of the day, a girl has to eat and prance about at least 4 hours
3. Who would you like to be?
Madi: Mom, all she does is eat and blog
4. What are you wearing?
Madi: A plush, velvety gray fur coat, a white vest and shoes  
5. What scares you
Madi: Plastic bags that are alive. They are ok when just sitting or hanging around and loud noises like the sucky monster.
6. The best and worst of blogging.
MadiBest:  My friends and their peeps. Worst:The flashy beast
7.  What is one thing I would change about myself?
Madi You can't improve on Purrfection....MOL
8.  Blankets: Yes or No

Madi: Yes only under me  and the more the better.  I don't like to be covered.

In case you haven't figured it out by now:  
I just wanted to clear up something.....
even though I have no thumbs
It is I, Madi, who is the driving force behind
Down Home in N.C./Madi and Mom blog.
As you can see, I literally sit at the 'puter
for endless hours

 Editing each and every post, examining all the photos to be sure my best side is shown.

I thank you all for putting up with the Madi-ness over the years
and for sharing your lives with us.💖💗💓
