Prelude to Number 10 (Meet My Box-Loving Friends)

Orphaned at 10 days old.
So sad.......
No mom or dad. (They were involved in a crime. I can't say more.)
Nice lady named Shreve found him and took care of him. (What a nice lady!) With her constant care, he has grown into a very nice and respectable boy.



This will be one of those "don't try this at home" stories. It takes a very special person to be a Mom to this boy.

Just Thinking......

You know, "10" is an important number.
I need to pick someone really special for "10".
Someone different, unique, unusual, exotic.....


I know!!!!
My friend in Wyoming!!

You don't mind waiting, do you?
I think a famous person once said, " Most of the pleasure is in the anticipation" (or something like that).
I mean, he's really a special boy (uh-oh, I said "boy"). I'd better sign off for today....

Meet My Box-Loving Friends, Part 9

Aqui está o meu querido amigo, Gotchi.
Gotchi lives in Portugal (so I am practicing my Portuguese!)
He is so special! And is just a few days younger than I am (2 years old).



......and he loves boxes!


Look! This is one of my favorite pictures! He is a good boy when he gets his toenails trimmed!

Go watch him brushing his teeth by clicking here. You are so smart, Gotchi!

Meet My Box-Loving Friends, Part 8

Quadruplets?
No.  Just Sukki  times 4.
She lives with her sisters Halle and Calle .
They lead a spiffy (Definition: "smart in appearance, stylish") life, so this box thing is quite unusual for them.
It's hard to decide which of the 3 girls I like best; however, the girl in the box wins!

Another important note: They have absolutely one of the best secretaries in the cat blogosphere! I think she must work at it 24 hours a day!


When Sukki is not in boxes, click here for another place to find her.

Meet My Box-Loving Friends, Part 7


LUNA speaks Portuguese.  She is from Brazil, although she is living in Luxembourg now.
I'll have to visit her, also, when I sail across the seas on my boat to Europe.
She is a very smart girl.


I love her beautiful whiskers. To see them, click here.

Method to My Madness

Mother's Day is coming up next Sunday, so I decided to order a hardback book for her (they come in bigger boxes, which suit me better). I hope she likes it. (19th Century Embroidery Techniques, or something like that.)



(Oh, dear.  This was supposed to be "Wordless Wednesday".)
Uh, oh. Maybe it's Thursday.  I think I slept through Wednesday......
