Colouring with Cats #45 ~ Getting Your OM on with Mandalas on Mondays with Space Cadet Fudge

Supurr Monday greetings beautiful furriends

And how are mew feeling on this fine winter morning?  

Well would mew believe it, we had snow again yesterday and it was mightily chilled.  Though we have to add the snowflakes that were falling looked more like patchy dandruff than those beautiful, big juicy flakes.  We were really hoping that some of the bigger variety flakes were going to grace us with their purresence but sadly no, we were stuck with the supurr-skinny-diet-snow that forms a moderate yet rather understated sugar frosting effect.

 Not the huge total white-out blizzard we were hoping fur, the type where mew have to tunnel out - well actually the P.A. and Dad were hoping fur, so they could have a Snow-Day! MOL

So this week we had our OM-Sesh indoors obviously, as it was even too cold with our fur coats on to go outside and commune with nature... well the only nature communing we did was watch the P.A. freeze as she fed the burds and defrosted their water - we did offur to help - NOT!!!!!

Anyhoo, as we were getting ready to get our OM on, Fudge says...

Anyhoo, we do hope mew've all have a totally pawesome weekend and that mew're ready fur the week ahead, so let's jump right in and start as always with our little breathing exercise, which we're sure mew all have down paw by now...  but if mew've furgotten, stop what mew're doing fur a moment and take deep fulfilling breaths; counting to five on the inhale and five on the exhale:

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Yep, Fudge really wore a goldfish bowl! MOL

But mew see, this proves that it is pawsible to get your OM on anywhere!

Taking It Easy and Staying Out of the Snow on The Sunday Selfies Blog Hop with Cat on my Head

Supurr Sunday salutations pawesome pals

Welcome to another selfie selection, we do hope mew've all been having a totally fabulous weekend, ours has been great other than the snow. 

 And fur those that didn't see Fridays post, I have good news aftur my vet visit.

The vet was best purrleased with me, effurything was all fine and the P.A. was just being a little offur-zealous as she thought I'd lost weight, but the scales at the vet said I was still 500 grams heavier than at my last visit in July.  So panic offur and my life can continue on as per normal! MOL

...our theme is:

Taking It Easy and Staying Out of the Snow

As mew can see we are not that thrilled to be stuck inside on the weekend, but hey there's always other days to go outside!

Here's wishing mew all a totally terrific day, and we'll be back tomorrow with our next fab mandala fur mew to colour, until then...

Pet Peeves with Parsley #11 ~ What's Your Boggle This Week? Meowy Humbug and so much fur my modelling career! And The Caturday Art Blog Hop

Many greetings pawesome pals

Parsley here *waves paw* and welcome to 

Pet Peeves With Parsley

Furstly I must apologize fur being absent, it's not my choice, appurrently 'others posts' are more impawtant than mine - that's why mine get bumped supposedly!

And funnily enough that brings me straight to today's gripe...

Why is it that my posts are the furst to get bumped?

Oh heck no, Amber just heard me....

"Parsley I am greatly displeased my posts are being bumped off too!" Amber said huffily.

'Oh heck no!' I thought and tried to make my escape.

"And did mew know that I sent off a small portfolio of myself to a top London modelling agency," Amber began. "Look here's some of the pics, the ones on the left."

I was still backing out of the door when she insisted I go and look at the photo's.  And believe me when I tell mew that I really didn't want to go there.

I took my time, doing a bit of a one-step, two-step sideways shuffle to delay things all the while purraying fur divine intervention of some kind, or just anything, ANYTHING else to be happening right now... a pin dropping, a giant catnip toy rolling by like tumbleweed, Smooch and Fudge coming to my rescue, the P.A. offuring me a small smorgasbord of my favourite delicacies on a silver platter, then hand feeding me, just anything else and not those photo's again!

By the time I got there she was tapping her paw impatiently and giving me a rather withering look.

She pointed to the furst picture. Top left.

"I call that my vacant-kitty look, can mew see how I'm staring at absolutely nothing?" she said enthusiastically.

I nodded trying not to look but having to seem mildly interested and grumbled, "Oh yeah, that's great."

She pointed to picture two.  Middle left.

"That's my fun quizzical stare, amazing right?" she gushed. "And the last photo, bottom left, I'm sharing my profile, and doesn't that pompom look tres chic?"

"Just fantastic!" I murmured and began to back away furry slowly, then added. "Amazing!"

"So why the freak didn't that agency sign me up on the freaking dotted line?" Amber snapped. "So much fur my modelling career, it appears Senior Cats aren't en vogue right now, and also I look a good five years younger than my real age!!!"

I mumbled my sincerest commiserations of a modelling career that never was, or will be and ran.
So my simple easy-peasy gripe became Amber's tirade, and that is:- the modelling wurld is biased towards aging cats who are ginger and white and wear strange and really bizarre furry fetching and most complimentary hats.

What can mew say to that?! MOL

Back At The Vets, All Cards Are Posted and Normal Programming Returns on The Pet Parade Blog Hop #225 with Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Barking from the Bayou

Friday greetings wunderpurr pals

Welcome to our weekly round-up on The Pet Parade, well Catmas is counting down faster than we can imagine, howeffur as mew're reading this I'll be at the vets having a little check up.  The P.A. is a bit concerned as since the weather got much colder last week I've started to lose weight again.  I'm not vomiting and I'm not off my food, howeffur the P.A. is erring on the side of caution just in case my pancreatitis is flaring up again.

So if mew could send a few healing vibes my way that would be great, or send me some extra weight to pack on asap, that would be pawesome too! MOL

In other news, we got all the Catmas Cards fur my Cat Scout buddies posted, our Secret Santa package has left the building, so that is now winging its was across the pond as I type, so get ready fur touchdown late next week - WOO HOO!!!

Moving on, The Last Big Jolly finally concluded and we must apologise fur causing leaky eyes to our readers, we didn't mean to.  But if it makes mew feel better, the P.A. looked like a deranged panda while she was writing it.  

And the good news is our normal programming schedule can now resume, which is great as Amber has been rather tetchy of late.  Oh and talking of Amber mew must stop by tomorrow to see her pictures, the P.A. had panda eyes again - this time from laughing so much - at the photo's, but don't tell Amber.

Here's a sneak peek! MOL

If mew missed anything offur the last week, here's the latest posts fur your purrusal:
