Happy New Years Everybuddy!!

We hope you party like it's 1999 (actually its 10:40pm and we are heading off to bed). UPDATE: We stayed up until 00:02!! Now its really time for some heavy duty beauty sleep.

My niece Belle, has been entertaining me and my mum. They went to town for the afternoon, and saw Twilight at the movies. Then they came home to cook dinner and entertain me.

Have a great night friends, family and furrykids everywhere, we hope all of your dreams come true and hope to catch up with you all in 2009!!

Big smooches

Tomorrow my special friend Belle is coming to visit with me. Mum hopes I will be nice. Last time she stayed with me we had special cuddles, and I would curl up on her. Tomorrow is also the last year of 2008 for us in New Zealand.

Tomorrows Gotchaversary

Tomorrow is my two year Gotchaversary. Here I am modeling my first ever christmas tree, and mum was training me to wear my first collar.

I was pretty good at snuggling with my mum, once I came out from under the couch.

It was pretty scay coming to a new big house by myself..........

............but it turned out well.
We hope all of our furry friends, in shelters find furrever homes with lots of treats and love.

Could you help support a blogging friend?

These are the only cat blogging friends we have who live in the same city as us. We hadn't heard much from them, as we know their mum was having a stressful year, but we hoped they were ok.

This weekend she blogged, and told us how horrid her life is at the moment. She could do with some support, please if you have five minutes go visit and read her story at The Famous Five . Thanks for helping.

Dear Shoppers,
My mum says some of you should hide your heads in shame. If you is going to go shopping in the madness, that is the post christmas buying frenzy, do not:
  • Return equipment minus five small screws when there are 15 people waiting behind you at the till.
  • Decide to swap your ten dollar doormat for another one when people are lined up behind you.
  • Please don't be rude to the cashier, they are only trying to help you.

Just calm down and relax, mum says. It was Saturday, it was sunny and she thinks that people should just be nice, especially if you are the one out shopping and not having to work. Enjoy it, don't be nasty.

So mums plans are to stay away from the stores, join me at home between work and just relax in the sun.

We are enjoying every little bit of sun, and thinking of all of our friends who are buried in snow. Keep warm and cozy everybuddy.

V-E-T visit

Today my mum put me in my ptu. She suprised me, so it happened quickly. She called the taxi and then took me outside to wait. So while she was looking up the road, I pushed on the PTU door, and miracle it gave and fell out and I escaped. Of course that was when the taxi came.

Mum had to ask the man to wait, then runned inside to find me in the garden. No way mum I'm not coming near you again today. What's that - the fancy feast and the plate. YUMMY, maybe I will come a little bit closer. Damn, she got me again!! But I drew blood!!

Off to the V-E-T, vaccinations and a big brushing all done and mums wallet is a little lighter. Oh and I am spending the evening in the garden, not talking to her. Except at bed time, cause it is a little chilly and she might sneak the electric blanket on, and I might need to snuggle between her knees a little bit. So she is a little bit forgiven.

It is meant to be summer here but we are having lashings of rain today. Poor mums washing will not get dry at all. A good day for resting.

Christmas Cards

Dear everybuddy,

I have been helping my mum finish the christmas cards. Please forgive the delay, we have had a few interruptions and mum has been very busy at work.

We have emailed you all our address, if you wanted to send us one. However we would be super happy if you saved the postage money and donated this to our friend Moki, or any of our other sick friends to help with their vet bills.

Grey hair

Oh, that is my catdoor over there, and yes I can fit through that tiny hole.

No point going through it now the door is actually open.

Yes, mum made it to her hair appointment today. I don't know why she pays the big dollars to hide the greys, what's wrong with grey furs? I love mine!!

Saturday, December 13, 2008


My G'dad went home today. He dropped mum into town for her hair appointment, pity she got the day wrong - her appointment was for Sunday not Saturday, hahaha!!!

As soon as G'dad went I spent the afternoon rolling around on the bed he slep in, soaking up the smells. Maybes visitors aren't so bad.

Have a nice weekend everybuddy. We know lots of our northern friends have snow, we have lots of sun forecast so we will soak up some sunbeams for you.

Friday, December 12, 2008


Wow it has been a busy week. G'dad is still here. Mum and him went out for a drive today, and had a look around the harbour, and town. They went to the botanical gardens and looked at the nice roses. They looked in the cafe there but it was very expensive, so they drove to a cheaper one and had a tasty lunch.

Mum worked tonight, and G'dad went visiting friends. So I had the house to mycatself. I am getting used to visitors, especially ones like G'dad who know how to dish out the biscuits.

Wednesday, December 10, 2008


This is what the sky looked like today, and in fact most days where we live. Lots of clouds and some blue skies and sun.

A great day to dry the washing.

My G'dad is here, and when mum got home from work tonight she found us playing footsies on the bed together, she couldn't find her camera though. I love it when someone lets me chase their toes. I have been very brave in getting close to my G'dad. I am learning to be nice to visitors.

Tuesday, December 9, 2008


Another visitor is coming? What do you mean I have to give up my bed again?

Monday, December 8, 2008


I can hear you noisy bug, but I can't see you.

You sure like to make some loud buggy noises.

You better get quiet soon, as we are off to bed and mum needs lots of beauty sleep.
P.S we posted 20 of our christmas cards today. We hope to have the rest finished by the weekend. We will also email you all and let you know our address. Keep checking your letterboxes.

What to buy your bean for christmas

Welcome to our guide for buying a present for your bean. Mum has helped me chose the presents from Etsy We love Etsy. All the things we have bought from sellers there have been awesome. Artists around the world sell their wares, there is no bidding like ebay, they set a price and you buy now. Mum has found that if you want something custom made, most sellers will do anything in the shape, style and colour you want, if you give them enough time. We like to support people who make their own stuff, and we hope you find something you like.

Please enjoy looking, and if you can help out we ask that you spare a few christmas dollars to help our friends in need this holiday season.

We like this sweet pillow from, only $22 (US), sitting on such a nice chair too.

This is a beautiful vanilla soap, and mum says a nice gift. This seller makes some amazing soaps that look too good to use,

For our friends who like to read, like my mum. This seller is from Paris , oh la la and makes these sweet book marks from her art. They are only $6 (US).

Snuggly merino armwarmers made in New Zealand!! Mum has a pair of these in black, and she says they were great in the winter especially typing in her cold bedroom. You can find them here

This artist does the cutest hand made stamps at You can also get sweet ones custom made with a name, pefect as a present and this one is only $11 (US).

This lovely print, is from a kiwi girl who makes art at her kitchen table. Her beautiful prints are only $18 (US), and all so sweet. You can visit her Etsy shop here

My mum loves a bag, oh yes she does. This one is cute with the grey and white flowers. From this fab seller

Stunning silver stackable rings by . They come in a variety of colours and gemstones, these three are called Storm.

These little sweet silver earrings come from this seller

This is Ulla. A very sweet softie, who looks like she needs to escape from that cage.

This is one of mums other fave bags in denim. It looks perfect for lugging all the work stuff around, and would look just as good going out at night. She also makes the same style inn other colours, yummy.

A sweet little cotton scarf with raindrops patterns, perfect for keeping your beans neck warm on those cold winter nights. This seller also does a nice range of tops too.

This is just a small range of some of the fantastic items that you can buy on ETSY, and all were for sale today. The great thing is you can shop from home, and they all will be delivered to your doorstep!

Happy browsing.
