Monday Morning Mews: Welcome, Teddy

Hi, readers!  It’s Sundae AND Gypsy both today bringing you a very special Monday Morning Mews.

You may recall previous posts about Motor Mommy’s dear friend, Miss Pam, who, along with her kitty, Sammy, write the blog One Spoiled Cat.  Miss Pam and our mommy met through their blogs several years ago, first as online friends, and soon, they became personal friends.

Sadly, Sammy crossed Rainbow Bridge back in December. Miss Pam and her husband, Mr. Dave, were heartbroken, as were all of the many friends she had made through blogging.  She and Mr. Dave knew they would adopt another kitty when the time was right, but that didn’t happen right away.

And…finally! Last week, they made a trip to their local animal shelter, and right there and then,  they were adopted by Teddy, a sweet little ginger kitty who looks very much like their beloved Sammy.  Not only is Angel Sammy still helping write the blog (now Two Spoiled Cats), but he is also Teddy’s guardian angel.

There’s a special blog hop this week to welcome Baby Teddy Kimmel to the blogosphere. And both of us, along with our pawrents, wanted to participate.

This is from Motor Mommy: Teddy, I just want you to know that when I read your mom’s email to me that they had found you, I was teary-eyed as I shared that with Motor Man.  And, he has such a soft heart, he was touched as well.  We both know how much your pawrents wanted to welcome a new furbaby into their family.

 Sundae here, and this is my message to Angel Sammy and Little Teddy:

Gypsy here, and it’s my turn:

And I have a pee ess:

Motor Mommy: Ummm….sweet Gypsy, I’m sure Teddy will have lots of girl kitties wanting to be his special friend. And, he’s quite a bit younger than you, too, remember?

Welcome, Teddy! We are so happy for all of you, and know that you will bring much love and joy to your pawrents!  We look forward to your Mom’s future posts sharing your antics and lots of pictures.

Monday Morning Mews

Happy Monday, efurryone! It’s me, Gypsy, bringing you this week’s mews.

Last week, Motor Mommy discovered that the stuffing in my kitty bed had flattened down considerably.  So, she did what any good mommy would do:  she went right away and bought me a new bed. (No, I’m not spoiled….why do you ask?)

I immediately jumped right in it and gave it the kitty sniff test. Just look at my toesies in that nice fluffy softness….

It passed with flying PURPLE colors!

You do know that purple is a regal color…..?

It IS, no doubt,  a bed fit for a kitty princess.

Monday Morning Mews

This is Gypsy, and I’m so excited that it’s my turn to share this week’s Mews with you.

Because…..this week, I received my very own desk plaque, so there should be no doubt as to exactly who is in charge around here.

I just may let Motor Mommy borrow it for her desk…. on those rare occasions when she’s feeling bossy I’m feeling particularly generous.

Happy Monday, efurryone!

Monday Morning Mews

Happy Monday! This is Gypsy, and it’s my week to share Monday Morning Mews with you.

Evidently, the arrival of the New Year must have inspired Motor Mommy.  One day last week, she tidied up and dusted her desk and vacuumed the office. The next day, she cleaned out file cabinets and packed away last year’s files in storage boxes. She also used that noisy monster machine thing she calls a paper shredder. That left little paper snippets all over the floor, and rather than drag out the vacuum again (which disturbs me greatly), she just used a broom to tidy up the office.

All that work just made me so very tired, I couldn’t seem to hold my head up or keep my eyes open….

It’s true: snoopervising is extremely hard work for a kitty.

Random Five Friday

Today’s post is the final Random Five Friday for 2016. So difficult to believe that, in a few days, we’ll be writing 2017.

1.  AND, on that first day of 2017, my sweet Motor Man will be celebrating his birthday.   Happy Birthday, MM.  Love you SO much! Photo credit to our dear friend Pam, One Spoiled Cat. We were having lunch with Pam and her husband, Dave,at historic Hanover Tavern in Hanover, Virginia, parts of which date from the 1700’s. (Pam took this right after Motor Man commented: “Can you imagine how many drunks have stumbled up those steps through the years?”)

2.) A couple of years ago, my friend, Bev, and I decided that, rather than exchange gifts at Christmas, we’d each just each fill a stocking for the other. We’ve bent the rules a little, though, and now, rather than stockings, we use pretty totes, decorative boxes, etc.  It’s fun to be on the lookout all year for little things we know the other one will like. This year, Bev filled one of those pretty boxes for me with all sorts of useful, fun items. And, a very special gift that I will cherish. You may recall that one of Bev’s and my favorite past-times is walking along the shore, looking for treasures. Unlike me, Bev often uses her findings to create pretty little pieces of art. And then she shares them with her relatives and friends. In the nativity scene pictured below, the shell was purchased, but the sea glass is some that was found on our walks on the beach.  Bev said she had used all the pearls in her craft supplies on other nativities, so she went to the thrift shop and bought a cheap inexpensive pearl bracelet to finish mine.  The little findings for the star were also from old jewelry. Notice the halo for Baby Jesus, crafted from jewelry wire. Thanks, Bev. This is an easel I just happened to have on hand; after finding a more suitable one, I think this will be on display year-round.

3.) Earlier this week, I downloaded all the pictures off Motor Man’s flip phone:  all 364 of them.  It had reached the point that he had such little storage space left, he couldn’t receive texts. And in the motor world, receiving texts from other engine builders is vital.  And of the 364 pictures, the subject in 223 of them was….um, not motors, but rather?

4.) Late yesterday afternoon, a cold front came through our area, bringing strong winds and amazing clouds. It also made for a gorgeous sunset sky,

…which dramatically changed over the course of about 30 minutes.

5.) Oh, and what’s that sound?  That would be the beach, calling us for one more 2016 trip.

Happy 2017. May it be a happy, healthy one for us all.

Monday Morning Mews

Hello, readers. Happy day after Christmas! Gypsy here with a brief report on my Christmas holiday.

Santa brought me new toys and treats, and my pawrents spent part of their day with me.

Look! Motor Mommy and I match!

Look! Motor Mommy and I match!

But, my favorite part of ANY day is cuddling with my Motor Man.

Monday Morning Mews

Hello, efurryone, and welcome to the Christmas edition of Monday Morning Mews. This is Sundae, the “senior” of us two kitties, beginning today’s post with my Christmas wishes for you.  You may have seen this photo of me in a previous post, but it’s one of Motor Mommy’s favorites, so I’m sharing it again today.

I just love it when my pawrents decorate the Christmas tree. It’s so much fun to lie under the tree and look up at all the lights and ornaments.  I sure hope Santa Paws knows that I’ve been a good kitty this year. And I hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas.

And, now, I’m turning things over to my younger step-sisfur, Gypsy, for her Christmas wish to you:

Hello, hello! It’s Gypsy, and I’m so excited to wish all our readers a Merry Christmas.

Motor Mommy bought this cute little Christmas scarf for me, and I really like it. The bells jingle when I move!

I hope that Santa Paws will forget that I, overlook the fact that I forgive me for tearing up the office furniture at our shop this year. I’m still technically a kitten, Santa, so purrhaps I’ll be better behaved next year….??  I promise to try.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE FROM THE MOTOR KITTIES!
