A Special Catmas Eve

It's Catmas Eve and a special one at that...but first Neytiri is examining what has shown up in the tunnel today...looks like a brand new suit for ol' Clooney Claus.

My biceps have grown too big for my old suit and soon you will get a glimpse of the new and improved Clooney Claus in my new threads...

First though, we will be honoring my Human's first ever feline Doogie Howser PhD.  Tonight is the 10th Anniversary of his passing and we are paying tribute to him.  Doogie was a cat full of soul, adventurous and independent but he had a very special bond with my Human ~ his Lady. He is now one of my Human's Guardian Angels and he has watched over her for the past 10 years...his story can be found under the Guardian Angels tab under our blog header. 

Ducky and Mini-Cloon wanted me to show the Audience the tree they decorated and lit in Doogie's honor...
Actually, I'm just pulling your paw...this is The Tree of Hope that is lit every year in our city...but we thought it was befitting of Doogie's 10th Anniversary.  

My Human created some art with an unpublished photo of her last moments with Doogie on Christmas Eve, 2006. 

 As it is also my 10th year of existence, we are commemorating that in this art photo and we are joining Athena, Cat Goddess in her Caturday Art Blog Hop.

We spotted Neytiri ~ our most beautiful Catmas ornament of all ~ and she wishes everyone a Merry Christmas!

And wait for it...

Clooney Claus 2.0...

Give us a "Meow" and we will FedEx out the goods!
Don't worry Audience, I paid my Human back evened the score for having to don these threads...

Wait for it...

K. Claus 2.0...

We hope you had a wonderful holiday filled with love, cuddles, toys, treats and nip. Wishing you all a blessed 2017! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PUTTING OUR BELOVED FIONA ON YOUR SIDEBAR.
