Happy Tummy Tuesday from Fleece-Peaches

Happy Tummy Tuesday.  My human wanted to post all christmassy stuff, but I insisted on celebrating in the "traditional manner." You see she bought me this FLEECE blanket as a holiday gift which exactly matches my coloring.  what's a girl to do?  Last nigt I was cavorting around on the new blanket, hoping she would get the idea....looks like I scored! Happy Tummy Tuesday to all this holiday week.

Christmas Card Interference by Peaches

This week it was our human's turn to send out cards.. I  tried to tell her I was interested in helping but did I get an invitation?  NO....!

Unlike my sisfur Paprika who walks gracefully amongst cards & Papers, leaving them as is, I, Peaches just get right down in the middle of them as you can see! Which is as it should be I think.

We first posted this picture a couple of years ago...but some things never change!

Poinsettia Peaches

Poinsettia Peaches!  That's my new name at least as of today.  Very few people know this (shhhh..) but I found out today is POINSETTIA DAY in honor of the red Christmas flower named after Joel Poinsett who discovered it in 1828.  Poinsettia Peaches. This fun frame is from Imikimi. You can read all about the holiday by following the link above if you ant to know more.

Happy Christmas Card Day

Good Morning, Peaches the cat here! Today is official  Christmas Card Day  The way to celebrate it is obvious! But a little history first...did you know the first Christmas cards were sent in London & commissioned by Sir Henry Cole? But we digress!
Since we haven't received many cards yet, having just missed the Xmas card exchange, we decided to celebrate  by fond memories of last years cards. I can't begin to tell you the our fun re-arranging all the cards!

I found the cards mesmerizing, and moved to my cat condo where I had a better view!

A sudden urge came over me...

I then heard a soft meow
in the distance offering assistance...

Paprika seemed pretty sure of herself
Well let me tell you...I could hardly wait for the action!
Then Paprika arrived and showed me how it's done..gracefully!

Paprika managed to walk through all the cards while leaving them in place.  If it was me I would have knocked them all over. I was so impressed!

Watching her delicate steps required extreme concentration however, and I soon found a better occupation!

Well, if you managed to get his far into our Christmas  card foragings, we congratulate you and wish you and yours a wonderful December. 

We're joining Cat On My Head's Sunday hop too!

Faux Fur Friday

Good morning, Peaches here! Faux Fur Friday, celebrated the first Friday of December, is an irresistible holiday to celebrate for cats and humans! Faux fur clothing first got started in 1929 and in the 1970's was at its heyday.

Both I (above) and Paprika (below) are firm believers in this holiday.

First of all, humans can wear it & look pretty instead of REAL fur from animals, as was so popular in years past.

The real benefit of course is to us cats.  Just check out how happy Paprika and I are on this zebra fleece fur.  Our human buys them on sale at Joanne's Fabrics just to give us a thrill!

Speaking of thrills, you can see how I am enjoying this leopard print which is one of the Faux Fur fleece throws on which to luxuriate.

As you can see I could not resist a little "frolic" on same!
Lest you think we are completely nutty cats, we now present "Exhibit A" - featuring our human Carol.  Humans are far from immune to Faux Furs. As you can see, Carol is wearing a tiger sweater & TRYING to look like US!

We don't really think she succeeded but applaud her efforts.

Whenever possible we seek out articles of clothing to "hang out on" and protect. Here, for example, is Carol's "Tiger Hat" which makes a great foot warmer or pillow for myself or Paprika (below)

Paprika and Tiger Hat Pillow

I personally like to watch over this particular tiger hat and "protect" it so it will not fall into the wrong Paws."

When my human wears this hat out and about, I am always quick to pounce on it and "secure" it upon her return.


We hope you have enjoyed our Faux Fur celebration and that you always use FAUX fur in your sewing and gadabout activities!

Love, Peaches and sis-fur Paprika
