|YULE DINNER: Salmon, new potatoes, and brussels sprouts!|
|SINFULNESS: Yes, this IS a chocolate cheesecake and, yes, it is 4" tall and weighs about five pounds (which is how much you will gain if you eat a small slice). YUM!|

|Waiting for my mom to come back and pet me some more! Where is she?!|
BHU: That's for sure!
PATTY: And he's LOUD! Yowling all night long. One night last week I swear he was yowling "Mom! Mom! Mom!" He has quite the repertoire. I've been thinking about recording him and compiling an "Operatic Stylings of Bhu" CD. A cappella, of course. Do you think there's a market for that sort of thing?
Anyway, you can see his very handsome profile if you look real hard. He really IS waiting for me to come back to pet him. Poppy took this photo and although there were already two hands ready to pet him, he waited on the edge of the bed until I returned. He loves me, doesn't he.
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving weekend! xoxo

PATTY: Just popping in to say Bhu will be 18 in just 17 days. I hope we all last that long. He's keeping us awake all night with excessive vocalization (loud screaming, howling and screeching). Sleeps like a baby all day. We are not amused but we are taking him to the V-e-t next week. I know what she will say, though: I'm almost certain it is cognitive dysfunction. In addition, I'm positive that the adult humans in this house are suffering from sleep deprivation!
BHU: Why waste yer time sleeping when you could be petting or feeding me?? I don't unnerstand you humans.

|10:00 am and sound asleep!|
|6 pm and sound asleep!|
Egads, for a while there we thought he was gravely ill, he cried out so much. But for such an "ill" boy he was having no problems packing away the Whiskas and Fancy Feast Appetizers and all of his bodily functions were functioning -- especially his MOUTH! So, we are still in that mode, not getting any sleep at night, using ear plugs and shutting the bedroom door . . . but mostly we get up and tend to his effurry need all through the night. I wish there was a Pawrents' Union I could complain to!
|Beautiful Mimosa blossoms outside my bedroom window!|
|These apples are much smaller than they look!|
Anyway, being an elder kitteh pawrent is no picnic. Share stories if you will! Is it going to get better, worse?
Hope your summer is going well! xoxo Patty & Bhu

|You know what I want!|
|Face furst into the white meat chicken primavera!|
BHU: I will stay inside, thank you.
PATTY: Well, me too, aside from shoveling the drive and what not. But a snowy day is always a good day for working in the sewing room, so head on over to Sew Sew Patty (tab at top) and see what happened! Stay warm and remember Spring will be here very, very soon!

Cleaning a little waiting for the snow to start falling and I came across these three photos of Bhu from long, long ago. Isn't he handsome? Doesn't he just exude confidence? When he was a kitten, we were setting something up in the living room and a box wound up in the corner. Box + Kitten = Permanent Installation. So this wound up as his little "safe corner," where he could go whenever he felt he needed centering. We gave him this vintage atlas to exercise his claws and another vintage book sort of wound up there, too, right alongside the basket where we keep all his toys.
Stay warm and safe today! xoxo Patty
|"Hello! You wanna see mai Lair?"|
|"There's mai box and the claw strengthening equipment. Just ignore mai mom's dum sun hat."|
|"I'll just sit here and guard mai toy basket. Ahem."|

|A new year!|
BHU: Ice on the window. Can't see through the ice on the window!
PATTY: So a few things have happened in Bhu's world the past several weeks. Recently, Bhu has become excessively vocal. No surprise: he IS part Siamese and he's always sung to the ghosts. So, I asked for help. On Facebook. Paula, Brulee and Truffle's mom, saw my plea and signed me up for a very cool group on Facebook. It's always good to have the wisdom of those who have been there! I got some great input and found a very helpful article on Catster ("What to do when your cat shows signs of senility.")
BHU: I'm Feline, not senile.
PATTY: Ahem. Sabryin and I changed our behavior, recognizing that he just wants more attention and so we stop what we are doing and give him pets. He immediately quiets down and typically curls up and takes a nap. I just want to thank the two groups on Facebook that made me feel less desperate about the situation: The Cat Lady Coalition and Cats With Blogs.
Though we missed the Happy New Year hoopla, we look forward to all that 2015 has to offer and hope that some of it is great joy, superb health, and plenty of kitty treats for all our peeps and furrends! xoxo
