Since I think it’s likely that most of you – if not all – have received the Holiday cards I sent out, I’ll post it now for those of you who didn’t request one, but want to see it anyway.

This year’s cat model was Spanky. Here’s the front.

On the back it said: Yule-tired Greetings! (Happy 2012!)

I sent out 325 cards this year!

I actually took pictures of all the cards I received this year as I opened them to better share with y’all – I did hang them on the wall in the hallway, but I figured that taking a picture of each card would work out better than trying to make sure every card showed up in a picture of the hallway. I loaded them up to Flickr, but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to share the entire set on a page in my blog, so you’ll have to go over to Flickr to see them all.

See all the cards I received in 2011 here!

Thank you, everyone, for the cards you sent, and the pictures of your kids and your cats and yourselves! I really enjoyed opening all those cards and seeing your (and your kids’ and your cats’) smiling faces (well, the cats weren’t smiling, especially the dressed-up cats, heh.) I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again – I have the best readers on the internet, yes I do!

Have you met the divine Mr. Tig?

Foot sniffer (it’s his dirty little not-so-secret. Feet. He can’t get enough of ’em!)

He appears to have a touch of the Loony going on here.

Sugarbutt rests from his wild New Year’s Eve celebrations. First he slept in the bed on the dining room table. THEN he snoozed for a while on top of the refrigerator. Then he ate a little and moseyed into the guest bedroom and slept there. It was all very exhausting. He thinks he might be getting too old for so much excitement.

  1. Tig with a touch of the looney — so cute!

    oh charlie and patty, you are so stressed out! lol

  2. I love Tig! I especially like how he seems to have little white ears inside his little black ears… I’m not explaining that very well but it shows in the photos… He’s going to be a charming grownup cat.

    • You explained it perfectly! He’s a four-eared bundle of black & white adorableness!!


  3. I loved seeing all the cards! Many cat cards as expected but with the penquins also making a strong showing. Alas no hippos…

  4. Robyn, I guess you didn’t make a New Year’s resolution to relieve Patty’s and Charlie’s unbearable stress, eh? Too bad! It’s so hard to watch such suffering!!


    My New Year’s Eve was a lot like Sugarbutt’s and yes, it was too hectic! I’ll have to take an afternoon nap next year!!

    Happy 2012, Everybody!!

  5. what a great way to archive your Christmas cards! and your card is downright adorable! I didn’t ask for one, so I’m glad I got to see it.
