The Advent of December

Hm. That looks like ...


Maybe if I look at it sideways ...


Nope, December's still there. *sigh*


If anyone needs me, I'll be sitting by the fireplace.

Happy December!

Thursday's Purrs: April

"Thank you for reading about me!

My name is April, and I'm a pretty, dainty little shorthaired brown tabby girl. A nice lady found me and my kittens as a stray. I was a good mom and took great care of my babies, and now I'm excited about being someone's baby, myself!"


"People here at Wayside say I'm a quiet, shy little cat, but I do really enjoy attention and affection.

If you speak to me softly and pet me gently, I will warm up in no time. I will let you know how much I'm enjoying your company by purring softly and making biscuits with my paws."


"I'm very curious, and I love to watch all the activity around me at Wayside Waifs. I sure hope my new home has a nice, comfy window I can watch the world from. Maybe we could take up some new hobbies together, like bird watching!

I'm so looking forward to starting off my new year in a new home with a wonderful person or people. I can't wait to meet you!

Love, April"

This sweetheart - whose story is remarkably similar to a girlcat we happen to know - is available at Allie's Alma Mater, Wayside Waifs.

(almost) Wordless Wednesday

Oddly beautiful, and a bit haunting, how the lounger fabric reflected onto his face and eyes.


(Taken with very low ISO. All I did was brighten the image.)

In Honor of Let's Hug Day

Allie: Hello, scratcher. I hear tomorrow's Lets Hug Day.


You're my Designated Huggee for the day.


(like I'd voluntarily wrap my paws around one of the boys, I ask you?)


Are you ready? This might sting a bit ....


***
Happy Let's Hug Day!

(not to be confused with National Hugging Day on Jan 21st. Just sayin')

Anyone else want an Allie-style hug? 
Faraday's standing by to pass out Band-aids ....

Thursday's Purrs: Meeko

"Hullo, nice to meet you. My name's Meeko. Are you looking for someone to keep you warm as the weather gets colder? Well then, I'm the guy for you!

I'm not one to brag or anything, but a 12 year old mancat like myself likes to cut straight to the point. Did you know I'm a favorite with the ladies over at Wayside?

Margaret calls me Meeko the Magnificent. And Honor gets me, she really gets me. She says I'm a sweet lovebug and a real lapcat (I have to admit I love me some cuddles, I do!)."

I call this my "hellooo ladies" expression

"I'm a total people person, in case you couldn't guess. I'll love hanging around you. And I might be a mature mancat but you should see my playful side. No ... really ... take a look. Scroll down to the video and check out my moves. That headtilt is my signature move, if I do say so myself.

Oh, there is one more little thing. No big deal, really. I'm FIV positive, but that just means that my immune system is somewhat compromised, so it's extra important that I have an indoors-only lifestyle, good food and regular veterinary care.

But hey, those are things a good adopter would give any cat, right?
Check out my smooth moves below, and then come on over to Wayside so we can get started on all that snuggling, what say?

Purrs,
Meeko"

This adorable, fun, absolute sweetheart is available at Allie's Alma Mater, Wayside Waifs.
