Pre-Christmas Eve Day (what?)


Hey Hey Hey!!!!   Time’s almost here everyone…………..I’m sure Santa is stuffing all kinds of stuff into his sleigh and his big bag thingie right about now – – – the reindeer are getting extra food because they’re gonna be working themselves to bits tomorrow night – Mrs. Santa’s probably packing a big lunch box for Hubby so he can have some snacks to tide him over until he begins visiting houses and eating about seven bazillion cookies and drinking three bazillion glasses of milk……in other words – even the Monday before Christmas Eve is probably BUSY!

Around here it isn’t busy though.  Everything is done…….we’re just taking it easy…….I looked at my pile of e-cards again and even though I know you’ve seen most of these elsewhere, I say “SO WHAT!!” – they’re FUN to see over and over AND I’m reminded yet again that blogville is full to the brim of fun friends and talented photoshoppers and photographers……”Tis the season” for sure!!   I also got a lot of cards mailed to me – and I love those too but Mom won’t rip them off the wall to take a photo of them…..(darn!).

I’ve had a pile of emails asking if we will be having a Tuesday Teaser even though tomorrow is Christmas Eve…………….short answer?


So, you may have thought I’d give you the day off since it’s Christmas Eve but THINK AGAIN………..there will be a Teaser………..and I hope you won’t be so busy that you miss it.

I want to thank all my kind hearted and generous buddies who have sent me presents……I’m not going to show me opening all of them up because I haven’t – Mom’s being stubborn about some of them like my Secret Paws box from Spitty for instance 😦 😦   BUT I do want to thank each and every one of you for your thoughtfulness………I’m touched……….and thrilled as I always am that I have so many fabulous friends.

Sam Loves His Friends!

Thanks to all of you!

I hope you don’t get caught up in the frenzy of the day before the day before Christmas (hahahaha) and you’re able to take it easy today – We all usually celebrate having an “EASY” Sunday…..let’s make Monday just like that – what do you say??

Takin’ it easy Sam 🙂



Well!  Yesterday was quite a banner day for me because I received TWO – count ’em – TWO blogging awards!  My friend Pedro honored me with The Versatile Blogger Award:

WOW...another award!

Thanks to my friend Pedro

 http://pedrothecat.com  Thanks!

 AND, if that wasn’t enough blogging bling to received in a day, I also received THIS one from my friends Isobel and NotCat:

More award bling!

Thanks Isobel and NotCat

http://isobelandcat.wordpress.com Thanks!

I’m just plain overwhelmed – really – I’m quite excited to have received two awards to add to my ever-growing list of accolades.   The requirements for both awards are the same:

1.  Thank the person who sent the award with a link back;

2.  Pass the award on to 15 bloggers you’ve discovered and let them know they have been included in our blog post; and

3.  List seven things about myself

The only thing is – Mom and I don’t have 15 other blogs we visit or have gotten to know in the short time we’ve been blogging!  But in the spirit of the awards (and so I don’t have to give them back…sniff….sniff…) I’m going to nominate those few that I DO know and have come to love.  The other “complication” in the list of blogs I’m enjoying these days is that several of them already HAVE these awards.  Makes it tough because I don’t want to award someone an award they already have – right?  If I’m putting a link here to someone who has one of these awards (and I just don’t know about it), please forgive me.  Just goes to show how “award-worthy” you are! 

Here they are – in no particular order – my FAVES!



http://pedrothecat.com (Pedro you have the Versatile Blogger award but not One Lovely Blog I don’t think….?)

http://isobelandcat.wordpress.com (Isobel you have One Lovely Blog but not the Versatile Blogger award I believe….?)

So, please take what you don’t have and don’t take what you do have (huh???).  This is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO confusing.

Now, here are seven things about me!

1.  I hate thunder, doorbells, telephones, strangers, bears

2.  I love my parents, naps, blueberry yogurt, bacon, QUIET, watching football on TV

3.  I like to play games like hide and seek and fetch

4.  I’m a polydactyl cat with extra claws on my front paws

5.  I do NOT like water….except in puddles

6.  I’m not crazy about the barky beagles next door

7.  My eyes change from brownish to greenish if I’m REALLY happy

Happy Awards Day to everyone!

Sam Sez: Happy World Cat Day !

Sam Wearing His Halloween Scarf

Wearing my Halloween scarf to keep all the BAD spirits away for World Cat Day!!

Happy Third Annual World Cat Day to all my fellow cats and their families!  I’m not taking any chances that any bugaboo/bad spirits will fly around our house today by wearing my SCARY Halloween scarf…..you can tell by my expression in this photo just how much I love wearing it (hahaha). 

Anyway, it is World Cat Day and we’re celebrating it quietly here at my house.  I’ll be napping a lot and expecting extra treats of course.  I’ll also be thinking about all the cats in the world who aren’t as lucky as I am – and there are a LOT of them that’s for sure.  When I eat from my cat food dish I always think of those who have no food.  When I sleep I think of those who have no rest because they have to keep moving to survive.  When I get petted and hugged I think of those who have never known the gentle human touch.  

So fellow kitties – let’s all PAWS and say a little prayer of thanks for all that we have…..and hope  that one day life can be as good for others as it is for us!!!  

Happy World Cat Day Gang!
