Fang Shui Friday

When in the garden, savor the colors of its inhabitants. Nature's colorful creatures have great healing properties and can sooth the spirit and the stomach.

From Fang Shui by Catfucious, Peter Pauper Press, 2002.

Buns, birdies and chippies! I can see them, I can hear them, but I can't actually get at them. So I doubt very much they will be be soothing my stomach.
Purrthday Party Details

Flower Friday

Not really a flower, but one of our tree leaves that is turning red. It is that time of the year when the trees go from green, to yellow or red, then fall off the tree. Then mum has to go outside and clean off the yard.

One of our new blogging gang,
Tybalt, gave me this award. Thank you. If you haven't met Tybalt yet, please drop by and say hello!


  1. Derby - I just saw the announcement for your Birthday party and I will have to send you my best wishes in advance - the staff just told me that the computer will stay off from Friday night to Sunday afternoon....
    Oh bummer! So sorry to miss it....

  2. These pictures are very cute, reminds me the Autumn is a season of festival~!

    It's about your party now~!!!!

  3. Wow! Congrats on the award. I am looking forward to your party.

  4. The garden can certainly smooth my spirit, but not my stomach, since I'm an indoor-only cat.

    Noon central is 7PM Munich time. I'll try to be at the party if I can get my humans to help me with the computer at that time!

  5. Congratulations on your award. You really deserve it. I like your Fang Shui, but it's true that the outside critters won't be soothing your stomach. They can be really fun to watch, though. I may be able to drop by your party for a while before I go to work.

  6. Hi Derby, you have so many creatures in your garden, you are very lucky. Our new apartment is in St. Leonards which is very close to Brighton - well spotted. FAZ

  7. Hi Derby!

    Don't worry, MomBean made sure it wasn't a 'bad' pot pie before, um, "sharing" it with me.

  8. Yayyyy a party for you Derby! Dat's so great. We can't wait. Nice fang shui info today. Yoo am da coolest.

  9. I hope we can come by the party!! We keep missing the great weekend parties. That chipmunk is SO cute!!!


  10. You have some very exciting wildlife to look at. I am looking forward to your party!

  11. We are very excited about your party. As long as we can get a bean to help us, we will be there! Congratulations on your award! Isn't Tybalt the greatest?

  12. Congratulations on your award!

    You have very nice views of the outside. All those animals to watch :-)

  13. We have a nasty little chippy at our house. When we are out with mom he comes and taunts us, then runs to hide in his hole.

  14. Congratulations on your award, and MomBean wants to say how the red on those leaves is so delicate - she wants to touch them!

  15. Those are some great pics! I bet it is frustrating not to be able to get all of that peaceful wildlife. It makes for interesting watching, though!

    Mommy is leaving me this weekend, so I have to stay home and be my responsible princely self. :( I plan on catching up on what went on during your party next week.

    Happy Birthday in advance, Derby! I hope you have a great year ahead of you, filled with purrs and tummy rubs!

  16. Par-tey, woot! Looking forward to it, Derby. And those trees have beautiful color, according to my mom...I just want to chase the leaves, myself.

  17. We will be at your party with bells on! Can't wait.

    It is almost midnight in Italy, so happy early puuurthday!


    Opus and Roscoe

  18. Yes, yes, yes, I will be there. I can hardly wait to meet everyone. I see some cats that have visited my blog and even though I am new at this I know I will have a great time. See you Saturday!

    By the way I really like the color of your blog. It is good for the month of October to go pink. I tried that when I first set up my blog but it didn't work out so good.

  19. Hi, Derby - Mom has to work some tomorrow but we hope she can help us come to your party for a while. Hope to talk to you all tomorrow!

  20. Congratulation on the award! That little chipmunks looks like something I would like to chase... great shot!


  21. We are gonna try an figgure out that party stuff!

    Skeeter and LC

  22. Derby, you sure have lots of wildlife in your backyard - that must be very exciting!

    I can't wait for your party tomorrow!

  23. Is it time for da party yet??? Oh ok it's still too early.

  24. Hey Derby,
    Mommy's gotta run some werk errands, so we'll be later for your party than we wanted to. :( I's sorry! We'll be there soon as we can!!!
