Celebration Time…Belatedly

Before we get started we need to remind you of this PSA:
A Public Service Note:
As of Jan 1, 2020, petcretary will no longer be making all the Birthday and Gotcha Day cards. She will make Memorial Cards, and maybe a few others. She is spending way too much time on them, (Sometimes up to 8 hours on a card), even though she loves making them…Sorry to have to put an end to those…if you want one and have not had one for your special furend/furbaby…send her a clear image with an unobtrusive background at least 4 weeks ahead, and she will get one out to you. Just leave a comment, with contact info.



Yup, it was more than Christmas around here…Pipo: On Boxing Day, which is not celebrated here in the USA, but petcretary comes from Canada, so its still that to her…well, anypaws, Dec 26th, (aka Boxing Day), was also the birthday of our Granny, she is no longer with us, but I think I would have loved to sit on her lap…though that would have been a long ride to get to that lap as she lived in Washington, DC…so we always remember that on Dec 26th around this den.

And well, it was  also MY birthday! I became 15! That means I am the second longest living kitty in this den…I hope to outlive the years that Groucho the first kitty here did, he was about 18 or 19. Who knows?? I am doing pretty well, despite all the health issues I had earlier this past year, so we here, are all thankful for that too.

But petcretary had to work that day and the next, so there was no pawrty here for little me.let alone any boxes to jump in, (though actually I am a rarity in that I am not too interested in boxes..)…but I did get lots of pets and lap time with pawppy. Who filled my bowl too! And the young unfurs were here for a bit too, so I got more belly rubs from the elder one…cause I miaowed at him, and begged for them, MOL! Of course I always get lots of them from pawppy, too:)

All dressed up…
And no pawrty…
Why not, petcretary??
Well, OK, then, a selfie!
I was at Dezi’s end of year friendship pawrty!
Pipo, you are not the only one who missed out…I had to forgo a Gotcha Day event on account of not doggy things that *she* was doing…
This is my baleful ‘why not, Petcretary selfie?’

Yes, the grass is very green here right now, though it should get white by the end of Dec 30th…

Yes, we both would have had a load of fun…
Well, we hope you don’t keep dreaming up more excuses!
This was my huge Christmas ‘cookie’!

Can I have…

Another one??

The card shop was busy in its almost last days…

Princess Erin

If anyone knows how to contact Princess Erin’s Mom, could they let me know…I can’t send her this image…


We will try and show you all our cards in an extra post, perhaps on New Year’s Eve, that will be a nice way to end the year.

We are hopping along with all the other Sunday Selfies, hosted as they do faithfully each week by The Kitties Blue
