Funky Fang Shui Friday

Use a soft paw to reach out and touch your beans. It will melt their hearts.
That is me sitting next to mum and just putting one paw on her leg. Just a way to show her I love her. Just like I want to reach out to Victor and his beans for Bonnie.
Our hearts are heavy since one of our good furiends, Bonnie Underfoot, went to the Bridge so suddenly yesterday. Bonnie you will be missed very much. By your beans, Victor and all of your blogging friends. I will remember the night we danced a few weeks ago when we dropped by your house for the after party. Dancing jive to the jazz that was playing. A pleasant memory to remember you by. Thanks to Chase for the picture. Purrs everyone.

Miles & Sammy Meezer, with Billy the Kitten
have suggested a day, heck the lets do the whole weekend, of HUGS. A holiday of hugs! We did this last year after a few kitties had a dust up. Like the Meezers said we don't take enough time to say what we should.




Flower Friday
we are starting to get more flowers. The lilacs are blooming, finally. Mum looked back and last year they had bloomed by May 11, mum took these pictures on May 22, so things are almost 2 weeks behind what they were last year. Mum went to the flower store and they didn't have much to buy since it is so cold to get things to grow here! But she did find a few things.

Have a safe holiday weekend everyone.

We are so sad this weekend and your idea of a weekend of hugs is so welcome. My Woman hugged me so much last night I thought I'd stop breathing so I'll let her bug my friends.

Thank you, Derby! Bonnie enjoyed dancing with you, too. She wasn't the most huggable cat, but quick "attack hugs" were acceptable. Your description of a soft paw touch was Bonnie's style. She'd come up behind me in the computer room and "scratch" my chair seat or chair back. No petting or lap time, just a soft mew and ear rubs.
Thank you for your kind words. We're sure Bonnie is happily bossing everyone around at the Rainbow Bridge.
Jen & Victor

PS that is a great photo! you made your mommy happy pawing her and letting her catch it on the flashy box

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Derby! I am shocked! Just shocked. I so expected your human to find me. After all she recommended my humans see the place where I am. Perhaps that will give her a clue!

Halloween said...

Hi Derby and your people. We are sending you love and many hugs to thank you for your kind comments and thoughts on my blog these last few weeks. It has really helped the Food Dude to heal and has made all of us appreciate what a great place the CB is.
