International 2-legged Exchange

Okay, this is a bit complicated, so please pay close attention. 

First off, Eric and Otis are sending their 2-leggeds to New York as their UK ambassadors to meet with me and Mica.

Here they are discussing whether anyone in America will know how to make a proper cuppa Rosie Lee. (That's Cockney rhyming slang for "a cup of tea." Since our Granny is from Scotland, Mommy has grown up well-versed in the power of the kettle.)

Mica and I simply cannot understand why Otis and my bestest best friend Eric can't come too.

Then Mommy told us that she's going to Paris next week. Oh boy, we thought! The land of French Fries and steak and cheese and pate! Meowlala! Bowlalala! See? We can speak French.

But we were mistaken. We're staying here in NYC. Only Mommy is going to France.  But guess who she's going to see there?

Tom and Tama-chan the little Aby princess!

And that handsome red fellow, Sen-chan of La Poupounette!  

She may even get to meet Vivi...

And the rest of the AbClan!

Now I ask this fair? We do all the hard work of creating these fabulous blogs and yet do we get to meet? No! Instead, our 2-leggeds go traipsing all over the globe, leaving us with surrogate care-givers or worse - sending us to Pet Jail (they call it "the kennel" to soothe their guilt). And what do we get in return? A whiff of one of our friends on a cuff or a collar. Next time, let's put them in jail and we'll all head off to the airport. 

A very important Public Service Announcement from Petey
Please look at the box to the right of my bloggie called "Let's Say Thanks!" This is sponsored by Xerox and you can click on it to send a soldier in Iraq or Afghanistan a customized Christmas Card that will arrive before the holidays. It's quick, it's free and we think it's great and EVERYBLOGGIE should do it. Okay? If you can't click through the box, go to  We promise it will move your name off the Naughty List.

So where are you and Mica going to be while your Mom is traipsing around France??? Inquiring minds want to know? Should we plan an AireRuby visit???

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Hi, Petey...

Eric said...

Petey,do I sound muffled??? I'm hiding in Moms handbag checking out the space. I threw out her her purse and make up to make room for's cosy. I'll get in it proper later. Now when I go home let's get into one of the leggededs NY Beasty Feasts shopping bags (bound to be billions of those). You come home to the UK and we'll both slip on the eurostar to Paris to visit everybloggie in France mai oui? ...good plan non?

Wags, Eric xxx

Stanley said...

Hey, Petey!

First off, it looks like you and I have the same stylist, since I have the VERY SAME Santa's Helper banana. I have yet to break it out though.

I think it's great that your mama gets to hop the pond and all, but I'm with you, man! When do YOU get to do some jet-settin'? Hmmmm?

Be sure to keep Mica warm ~ it's getting cold out there!

Goober love,

Luna und Luzie said...

That sounds very complicated for Germany speaking Kitties.
Do you go to a cat and doggie Hilton during your mom is in France?
You have a cute scarf !

Noah the Airedale said...

Petey mate, we know exactly how you feel. Our two leggeds go jetsetting around the globe meeting our buddies too. I hear a rumour they may even be going to NYC next year without us. Keep a look out for 2 daggie Australians looking bewildered and lost hee hee

Agatha and Archie said...

Hugs and kissies...Laciegirl

Give our love to Eric's peeps...hope he comes as a stole a way!!!!!

the many Bs said...

hi Petey, that is some complicated travel plans going on there. we like the part about Eric and Tom and TamaChan and Sen Chan, but the part about Petey going to doggie jail doesn't sound so good to us. maybe we can stage a jail break and have a big party while your peeps are gone. that will teach them.


Joe Stains said...

Humans are so totally ungrateful. Mom is sooo jealous that she is going to Paris, she should eat tons for our Mom ok?? We are going to go send a card now!
