When Gracie wants to play, George has no choice. She will harass him and harass him until he gives in and plays with her.
Poor George. Don’t you just feel so sorry for him?? (Don’t. He loves it!)
Although I’ve had it hanging on the fridge for months, I forgot until Kristen reminded me yesterday that this is the page in the Cute Overload daily calendar for December 3rd/ 4th:
That’s my picture of The Seven there on the left.
Speaking of The Seven, I have been meaning to mention this for ages now but kept forgetting. You remember Beulah, right? Teeny tiny, half the size of her brothers and sister, alien-looking Beulah? Here’s a refresher pic:
Well, Beulah was renamed Pumpkin and she is now at NINE pounds. I never would have guessed that she’d get to be a full-sized cat, but then again we never expected Alice would either, did we?
What’s cool, though, is that – remember Macushla? Maggie’s baby? The one with the cheekbones of a model?
Well, Macushla has been renamed Loki. And his father and the woman who adopted Pumpkin (Beulah) are brother and sister – so Loki (Macushla) and Pumpkin (Beulah) are cousins – and both former fosters of yours truly. How neat is that!
(Thanks for the news, Frances!)
For those of you who are new to the whole holiday card exchange, I used to buy cat-themed holiday cards at Hallmark or Target or Walmart and send them out. Then several years ago I decided to get more personal, and since then I’ve used permanent residents on the holiday cards. In case you missed out, here they are in order (not including this year’s card, of course).
Also, I didn’t use this picture for a holiday card (I’m sticking to permanent residents for that), but I think this picture of Reacher from last year came out so good that I’m currently using it as wallpaper on my computer.
