Mitalee on Monday with toys , a cat mat and Esme.












Mitalee, "Meowsers! Look what I found in my room! It' s a knitted ice-cream cone catnip toy from  our friends at, 15 and meowing."







Mitalee, " I'm going to give it the bitey and shake it up until its' innards are nice and scrambled!"




Mitalee, " Then I will pose with my ice-cream cone so that you can see I still love the camera!"





Mitalee, " This is the other toy Ellen sent us and I will deaded it next! Thank you Ellen. You really made me happy knowing I am still a  huntress to be reckoned with!"





Esme, " Hi ya! It's me, Esme. I wanted to tell you that we also received this mat that I am lying on. It has some powerful catnip tucked away in one of the corners. For those of you who don't know, I am a bit of a niphead, but I don't have enough energy to actually play with a catnip toy these days which means this mat is just the ticket for me!"






Esme, " I'm looking a bit stoned here but I'm just sleepy!"





Esme, " Here I am after my nap! I love the mat and it is on my favourite chair in LP's bedroom where she threw her sweater  one day. Now I can snuggle under her sweater on my new cat mat whenever I like. Thank you Ellen. You really made my day!"



Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.

Fashion Friday with Duffy : My special bowties and bandana.






 Duffy, " Hi ya! Welcome to another installment of , Fashion Friday! This week I am going to show you two bow ties and one bandana! The bow tie I am wearing is extra special on account it has lambies on it and Lambie is one of Esme's nicknames!"















 Duffy, " Here is my serious pose in my Lambie bow tie. I think of Esme when I wear it!"








Duffy, "This bow tie has bumblebees all over it! Which means I think of Mitalee HoneyBee when I wear it!"







Duffy, " Here is my serious pose in my HoneyBee bow tie!"









Duffy, "It's difficult to stay serious for long! Modeling is challenging for a lighthearted guy like me! Next up is one of my favourite bandanas and I think of someone special when I wear it too!"









 Duffy, " This bandana has dachshunds all over it! My cousin angel Rocky was a dachshund so I wear this to remember him!"



























Duffy, " I hope you enjoyed seeing my special bow ties and bandana! See you next Friday at this time for another session of Fashion Friday when I will show you my favourite matching bandanas!"




Have a Fabulous Friday!
See you soon.

Queen Mitalee HoneyBee on Monday.








Mitalee, " It's been an entire week since we last chatted and may I say I am feeling much better these days?! I continue to eat numerous small meals every day and I am drinking enough water which means no visit to the vet's this week! I have even been feeling a bit frisky! See this bumblebee? LP bought it for me and it is filled with organic catnip! My complete name is, Mitalee HoneyBee, for those who may not know. LP felt a catnip filled honeybee might be just what the doctor ordered   . . . . and it was!"






Mitalee, " First, I rubbed my stink all over it so that the bee knew I meant business!"






Mitalee, " Then I gave it a few whappity, whap, whaps to show it that I am the Queen Bee!!"







Mitalee, " I think there is no mistaking now who is, The Queen Bee. And yes, I am done with you for today lowly drone!"






Mitalee, " Of course I needed a long, queenly nap after expending all that energy!"






Mitalee, " But it was nice to know I am still able to deaded a bee, when the need arises!"


Mitalee, " Here is another quote by a writer that can always be appreciated."


                "Light tomorrow
                  with today." 

~ Elizabeth Barrett Browning~



P.S. Since today is International Box Day, we thought we would include a few pics of of the critters in boxes for you to enjoy!
