Mica Monday - Happy Mother's Day!!!

Hello my friends. It's been a while since I've had a Mica Monday, so I thought I'd take advantage of Petey's being busy packing for his trip to Hilton Head to catch up with you all. 

Me, I've never been to Hilton Head, although my two dearly departed cat sisters, Moki and Maui, were both born there and adopted from a wonderful no-kill shelter there. (They've even rescued alligators there! Some of the pets there were abandoned by their owners when they were on vacation. How awful is that?

Anyhow, I have some very exciting news to share with you!

I'd like to wish our good friend Vivi at the AbClan a very Happy Mother's Day! Or since she's in France, une Bonne Jour de la Maman, peut-etre?

She just had three puppies -- all boys! Are they the cutest bunch of wrinkles you ever did see? Please go over and wish her congratulations. (Mommy is a bit jealous because she thinks these new puppies probably understand French better than she does.)

And since you've seen SO many photos of Petey chasing after a ball, I thought I'd show you me in action! Not bad for a cat that's 17 1/2 years young!

Mommy got ME a new toy. It's a long stick with a mouse at the end of the string. When she shakes it, the mouse makes "genuine mouse sounds." Believe me, I caught a mouse once and that's not what he was saying! 

The Shadow knows....
Sorry for the blurry photos but when I pounce, it's like lightning striking! Pow! Of course, Petey thinks this toy (like the 200 other toys here) is for him. Maybe his ratter heritage is there after all! 

Here's a nice shot of the two of us relaxing. We're going to have a professional photographer come over tomorrow to take some photos of ME for an advertisement. Then at the last minute, she said she's going to take "a few with Petey, too."  He's always crowding me!

Oh well, soon I'll have the place to myself for almost 5 whole days. Better start grooming for my big shoot tomorrow. 

Congratulations again, Vivi! I'm going to play with my catnip cigar in your honor!

So Mica...who's gonna hang with you while Petey and the family are gone??? I sure hope you won't be lonely. Also, I was um, wondering if you'd um, be my NOMSSF? Everypup has one and I thought it is high time for me to get one too? Pretty please?

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Hi Mica. We always love your posts so today was a treat! It is so great to see you pouncing around! I (Sen-Chan) want to be just like you always!

Nice of you to write about ViVi's boys. They are so cute and she is so nice about it all. #1 was able to cuddle them and she didn't mind at all!
