January 24, 2014

PRANCER PIE
was an angel on earth now he has his angel wings.
I will miss sending him sweet nothing candies this
Valentine's Day


XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO

Prancer was my mancat and friend
We formed an instant bond.  Each and every time he visited my blog he always let me know I was special
and it always made my kitty heart skip a beat.
My Dad reads my blog every night and the first thing
he said when I told him about Prancer was:
'he always writes such sweet words"

Even on the day he he left for the Rainbow Bridge he wrote:
"I will always, always be your most ardent admirer, bestest, and main mancat forever. Much love, Prancer Pie. XOXO"



Proud
Rare gem
Angel on Earth
Never ending love of friends
Cat's Meow
Entertaining
Remarkable


Mom and I always scrolled down to the bottom of his blog to read this...we love it.  




Yes indeed Prancer it was our honor to visit each day
 and until we meet again
Run free to you from your Ardent Admirer
Hugs,
Madi

FRIDAY FRIEND: Guest Blogger!!!!!!

GREETINGS AND SALUTATIONS ALL

This posted briefly on Friday, 12/27/13 so it might look familiar to some of you.
I live with Madi's human sis and BIL.I'M, HARLEY, MADI'S GUEST BLOGGER TODAY.
Technically, Madi is my Aunt, but she insists
I call her Madame Diva Mayor Queen of the World.
This is my official portrait for today.



EXCUSE ME WHILE I SLIP INTO SOMETHING 
MORE COMFY. 
I am a Blue(gray) Cornish Rex Kitty
Madi and I are actually about the same shade of gray
BUT she has more furs. Rexes have short wavy furs

Madame Diva Mayor Queen of the World.ion
Madi's peeps, my human granny and granddad
came to see us at Christmas.
Granny asked me to appear on 
Madame Diva Mayor Queen of the World's Blog
as a guest and I said 
Y E S 


Granny told me we would need a photo shot
so I struck this pose.  Granny just loves how
about 50% of the time I hold my right paw up when I stand still

When the Grandpeeps were visiting I  did got in so many places I wasn't supposed to so many different things...but it was all
for the sake of posing
 My mom told Granny "Harley is not allowed on the table"
mol mol mol Granny said come on Harley
jump on the table.  So i lifted my 
right leg while I did some higher mathematical
calculations in my head.  

 Photo sessions are very tiring, so 
I adjourned to my sun room for a nap in a sunpuddle

 I got pretty tired of having the flashy beast in my face so I got up.....


AND stuck my head in the sink to get away from 
Granny
This is THE END of  my
guest appearance....it was fun
I thank my older and wiser Aunt Madi
for such a great opportunity
oh and my Mom and I thank you all
for all you kind words and comments while
my Dad (Madi's BIL) has been recuperating.
I am happy to say all of his parts that were weak are getting very strong.  He is walking is 99.9%.
His right hand and arm are doing well too!!
FYI:  My job is to sit in his lap to keep him warm.
Hugs Harley-Man

Sisters by Heart

Last week Mom met her very very good friend,
Anita, for lunch to celebrate the fact that mom is officially
older than dirt.  


Anita must spend months and 
months picking out the most perfect card for Mom and they are always funny.  This year's said
"The world became a better place on the day you were born,
or so I've heard.  It's not like I was around way back then."
Anita is 11 years younger than Mom.  They became
fast friends nearly 30 years ago while working at 
North Carolina State University

Anita  found the most beautiful gift for Mom too.
It 100% describes their friendship.
It is by Willow Tree
It is called Sisters by Heart 
which is what mom and Anita are.

These two ladies are beautiful separate
but when put together they hold hands forming a heart




Ms. Anita I know you read our blog every day so 
I wanted to personally thank you for putting up with my mom even though she is a silly girl (that is an inside joke with Mom and Anita).  
Your gift touched her heart and made her happy and when Mom is happy we are all happy
Lots of hugs from
Madi and the Silly Girl

PSA and Dancing 101


...  She has finally been forced to answer many Madi Questions

Q:  Why do I have to beg for my food
A:  You are like your Dad when you finish eating you want to know when the next meal will be.

Q:  Why is it when there is ham and I'm sleeping you think I won't smell it?
A:  You are a cat or at least I thought you were but you have the nose of a K9

Q:  Why do you run to fill up the bird feeders when the birds start chirping  but holler at the squirrels when they eat our deck?
A:  The answer to that question is the last 4 words of your question

Q:  Did you know sitting hunched over your Cheerios bowl with give you bad posture?
A:  Yes but I live with a cat who has a love for Cheerios and absolutely no table manners.

Q: Why do you go out in the cold then return telling how smart I am to stay inside?
A:  Because you are the smart on in the house.

Q: Why do you shave all the furs off your legs then complain when  they are cold?
A:  Because I am not as smart as you are.

Q:  What do you love best about my blog?
A:  YOU and how good you are about posing.

Lovelies



Our friend Kathy from crystalcreationsbykathy.blogspot.com/

Made this beautiful  Chinese Turquoise Necklace for Mom
I wish you could see it in person.  We are in awe
of the delicate wire wrap around the stone.
It is an original creation too
I told mom I thought it would look very lovely
on my gray furs
But she seems to think it would be twice a lovely 
on my nose.  I looks like I'm balancing it but alas 
I'm a cat I don't do tricks!!
Thank you Kathy for making mom this beautiful necklace.
Hugs Madi and Mom
