SATURDAY PHOTO HUNT

TODAY'S PHOTO HUNT WORD IS

BELLS 
click here to see the list of words
What a great word for this time of year.  I'd like to show you some of our bells

These are the bells I use to call Mom when I need service.
She says she likes they ding-a-ling-ling better than my
meowing screaming

Mom decorates our both of our stair banisters with big
bows and bells
 We have another set of bells on the sleigh.  
Mom also uses the sleigh to hold all the Christmas 
letters we receive

We hope you have a ding dong ding-a-ling Saturday
Hugs
Madi and Mom

{THIS MOMENT} SEE BEAUTIFUL

The purpose of the blog hop 

is to remind us to stop and see beautiful all around you each and every day.
To quote Sugar, 
The PAWsome part of today's blog hop is, for every participant of our blog hop, we will be donating $1. (up to at least $100). to 
St. Anne’s Center Lantern House a continuing 
project sponsored by Goose and His Mom 

Now for our {This Moment} See Beautiful

Mom prepared a collage to show you all the pets who have made her See Beautiful each and every day for the last 37 years.  She says they all taught her all she knows about 
unconditional love.  Below the collage we will tell you about each
furbabe in order of their arrival into the family.


1.  Toto the mighty mini Doxie was the family's first pet...he helped raise my human sis.  Mom has so many funny stories about Toto and the trouble he got into way he certainly saw beautiful in each day.
2. Milky-Way was the second family pet and first feline.  I'm reminded daily that Milky-Way's gentle soul and mild manner paved the way to the peeps heart for me...which is why he gets the centerfold.   
3. Cali, a Cornish Rex, was my human sis's first cat of her very own which she picked out for her 21st b-day present.    Milky-Way and Cali adored each other.
4. Madi made us realize that all cats are created differently.  She came roaring into our house weighing about 4 tons 4 pounds, took over our hearts and gave me lots of gray hairs.  She was the Energizer Bunny taking names and kicking tush!! 
5. Harley, also a Cornish Rex, is my human sis's second cat.  If you aren't familiar with Rexes...let me just say they have the most wonderful  personalities.
Thank you for visiting today and we hope you all  seize
{THIS MOMENT} SEE BEAUTIFUL

MAYORAL THINGS...

SINCE I ACCEPTED THE COVETED TITLE OF 
MAYOR OF BLOGVILLE  I HAVE LEARNED SO MANY THINGS.
APPARENTLY THERE IS SOMETHING THE FIRST FEMALE, FELINE MAYOR NEEDS.....
*
*
*
FACT 1.
A PURSE/LUNCH BAG....WHO KNEW?  CERTAINLY NOT ME
BUT THANK GOODNESS  Tasha,Chip and WHN @ 
Dachsies with Moxie are in the know.  They asked 
their sweet Mom WHN(what's her name aka Agnes) to make me one.  Ms. Agnes said I have just the right fabric for a 
Mayoral purse. I just love all the felines on it...and I think the color looks good with my eyes.  Ms. Agnes I thank you very much for
thinking of me and keeping me in fashion. 

 It has several compartments inside (Mom said it is the feline
Vera Bradley).  I can put one can of Fancy feast in it and several
flavors of treats.
 Every lady knows a new shoes are required when you get a new purse.  I need some advice....should I get 2 pair of  (remember I have 4 paws) the gray pumps, or 1 pair gray and 1 pair black.  
Or I guess I could get a different color for each paw?
Should I get peep toes or solid pumps?
Should the heels be kitten heels or wedge?
Suggestion accepted

Fact 2.
My Canadian buds Derry and Nicki at Fuzzy Tales
Shared the amazing information...did you all know that a Mayor in Canada is called 
YOUR WORSHIP
Derry and Nicki asked me what they should call me?
I'm kinda liking Your Worship!! 
Ms. Agness addressed my purse to Mayoress Madi
Frankie our current Mayor is Mayor Frankie.
So I'm currently pondering my future title
Mayoress Your Worship Madi aka
MYW Madi 
What do you think?

Stick a fork in US we're

DONE

After a lot of whining and complaining discussion, Mom and 
Dad decided to use the mammoth (7.5') Christmas tree one more year. Even after they brought it in there was more whining and complaining discussion so I had to get them back on task!!
 I bet you don't know why  I like my Christmas Tree......
because it comes in a box  woohoo
 Once I was sure the whining and complaining discussion was over and the box was opened..my job was done.  When I was a wee
kitty, I got in the middle of everything but now
 I find a comfy seat, turn my lasers on high and
snoopervise from afar
 In spite of the whining and complaining discussion
the peeps did a good job.  Before long I bet you'll
see a picture of me sitting under my tree on the red
tree skirt which was crocheted by Dad's Mom along time ago



 Mom even deck the mantel with garland, silver and gold candles and a Santa on each end to balance things out.
If not been for the whining and complaining discussion,
I would give them an A+....but points were deducted for the 
W and C  I gave them an A-
Mom always hangs their cards from our staircase railings she says she'll show you that if she gets more than 5 cards. MOL
Yep more whining and complaining!

giggle and collected and she came back with two tons of
goodies.  She divided the swag into a K9 pile and a Feline pile
then she decided to fundraiser see below button.
Every 4 legger politely asked their peeps to contribute some green paper for the event.  Then your name was put in a random thing a ma gig to select 2 winners
LO AND BEHOLD MOM AND I WON THE FELINE SWAG 
BAG!!  To say I had a good time with that swag bag would not come close to an accurate description.  So now that you are caught up here is my loot!!

The card is addressed to Moi, Mom and Dad
yep there were things in there for them too.


Right off the bat I got a whiff of catnip...I just had to find it
Everything was in a great big canvas bag 
So I did what any cat would do I went in head first
Got a healthy dose of nip and came up for air
When all of a sudden I found some smell mail for my gal
pal Mayzie!!  
Jumpin' catfish it looks like Katie's Mom Glogirly was there
handing out pink totes..we all know Katie loves pink.\
Every Diva needs her very on Glogirly bag

OMCs/OMDs I hae never seen so much swag in one bag...
Yep I'm a poet and I know it.
Let's see what we have it..a catnip roll that I'm giving a
the bunny kick, temptations, water jugs for the peeps,
cat toys galore, a bag and a vial of catnip. Last but not 
least a new Pooper Scooper...yes even Divas need those.
