Tunnel Tuesday Blogoversary Valentine's Extravaganza


Well hello there felines.  So I goes to my tunnel in the wee hours of the morn...and it is still on strike!  Can you believe it felines?  So I brings my tunnel a little surprise to cheer it up...and I asks it to be my Valentine!  

Here I am chewing on the string ribbon of my surprise and then
swatting at it...And then guess what?  I lost my tunnel's surprise...

So I was faced with just giving my tunnel a Valentine's note...

But I'z hoping that this handwritten note will charm my tunnel and cheer it up so it gets working again.  Join me next TUESDAY felines to check in and see what happens.

Now continuing on with other news, it is our 3rd Blogoversary today Audience!  And it also happens to fall on Valentine's Day so we are having a Valentine's Extravaganza!  Today Secretary Neytiri is taking us behind the scenes of the party preparation...

Neytiri: Hello there Audience!  Today I am giving you an insider's look into the baking lessons my Mancat Archie took part in for Valentine's Day.  Archie took the red-eye in from Tarana so he was a bit jet-lagged until "Ducky" made him an espresso... then he was the purr-fect student!  Archie is fearless and likes to hang out in high places so he got a bird's eye view of the baking process and lesson!

Archie: Wow, those Red Velvet Cupcakes we made for our Moms are a work of art!  I can't stop admiring them...

Neytiri: Congratulations, you are a natural at baking Archie! What was your favorite part of the baking lesson?

Archie:  I loved "kneading" the cream cheese frosting!

Neytiri: Don't worry Audience...I made sure Archie's toesies were clean...We run a tight ship here! 

Neytiri: Do you have any tips you'd like to share with the Audience for making the purr-fect Red Velvet Cupcake?

Archie: Why yes, in fact I do...Make sure your easy-bake oven is pre-heated to 350 degrees and that you have toothpicks on hand, or should I say paw, to test if the baked goods are ready.

Neytiri: Those are excellent tips Archie!  Thanks so much for spending the day eating frosting baking with me!  It was so much fun!  Your next lesson will be "dusting"...

And here is "Ducky" posing with the finished product...

Archie gave me a Valentine to celebrate our 1st Valentine's together!  I think he did a superb job on it, it is very pretty and romantic!

I, too, made a Valentine for my Ginger Snap...

And Clooney has a special request for his Valentines this year...

He is asking the wonderful Marg and all of the very special Marg's Pets, with a special shout-out to Joe the Donkey to be his Valentines!  We wish everyone a Happy Valentine's Day! 

*Mancats, remember to save your special Ladycats the last lick of Num-Nums today!*

  37. Neytiri, If you would just come to your senses and see Spitty for the wonderful ManCat he is, he could put *your* name in a heart next year. I mean, you can still be Archie's Valentine too! Monogamy is just a silly Human invention, especially for a LadyCat as beauteous and prettiful as yourself.

    Happy Valentine's Day, efurrybuddy! ♥ ♥ ♥

  38. Happy Valentine's, and happy blogoversary to you all! We hope your tunnel goes back to work soon, Clooney. And Neytiri, great baking lesson. Guess you have no lack of mancats interested in you.

  39. We missed visiting you yesterday on your Blogoversary Happurry Heart Day, but you two are sweethearts every day of the year!

  40. We love Joe the donkey - he is very sweet and little. Sorry to be so late but we hope you Heart Day was fun!
