Lots of Color Everywhere.... HH has made a coloring book... Have a look!

We are so excited to announce that Lou (HH) has made a coloring book out of her pen and ink paintings.  That's the cover of it above.  It's a coloring book for all ages for fun, meditation, relaxation and whimsy. 

If you like to color, we hope you will take a look at it.  It's Click Here on Amazon.

We, of course, were instrumental in the development and critique of each picture for the book.  So you know that many have kitties in them...

Hope you enjoy and let us know what you think.

hugs, Bugsy and Knuckles

Book Launch -- In the Company of Cats by Lou Belcher


It's Bugsy Here..... to say I'm a little excited would be an understatement of the biggest order. Knuckles and I are so happy to announce that HH finished her book and it went live on yesterday. It's packed with pictures of us and with lessons that we taught HH and learned ourselves too. We hope that you'll buy it and let us know what you think about it...

Here's the front cover of it...

BookCover5_06x7_81_BW_90_V2 copyAnd here's what the back cover says....

In the Company of Cats is the story of two brothers (woohoooo, that's us - Bugsy and Knuckles!!!) who start out as demolition cats and end up teaching some lessons in loyalty through their story. You will laugh at their antics and shake your head at their persistence. In the end, you will learn some valuable lessons and may want to go out and adopt a cat or two of your own. Bugsy and Knuckles invite you to enjoy the story of their formative years. About the Author… ( HH to us) Lou Belcher, the author of The Zen of Max (a memoir of great wisdom and many naps), is a freelance writer, artist and blogger. She lives with Bugsy and Knuckles in Florida (or paradise as they call it). Lou holds the firm belief that people should smile more. Consequently, she devotes a good portion of her writing and painting time to whimsy. As usual, a portion of the proceeds from this book will go to agencies devoted to finding forever homes for pets. HH just ordered a carton of books....

We'll share more thoughts about In the Company of Cats when we have a chance to paw through it. But we just couldn't wait to tell you that it's on Amazon already. We're off to celebrate now...

Have a great day.... 

Hugs, Bugsy, Knuckles and HH

Sunday Funnies--- Bugsy's Invention

The Adventures of Bugsy and Knuckles

Good Morning... Knuckles Here... my turn to narrate the blog, but first here's a word from Checkers.

150118CheckersSelfieI just wanted to take a minute to thank all of you for helping me celebrate my birthday. It was so nice of all of you to drop by last week. And... I wanted to tell you the results of the commentathon... between comments here and over at HH and The Boys and on the Facebook site... there were more than 50. HH decided to round that off to 100. So thanks for making it such a huge success.

Now, back to Knuckles for today's blog.

HH is doing another 30-day thingy with her art and this one is all about sketching according to a word list. One of the words this week was "be seated" and this is what she did...

SheddingSMPretty deep, right? MOL

Another was "bird house" and Bugsy helped inventing the design of the bird house and by posing for the painting of it...

birdhouseSM copy

Personally, don't tell Bugsy this, but I'm not sure any bird would go anywheres near that bird house....



I'm lucky, cuz as the narrator today, I get to post my selfie... Pretty cute, right.


We are participating in the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop put on by The Cat on My Head blog. Come on and join in if you want to.


Have a great and Easy like Sunday. Hugs to all of you.

love, Knuckles

Bugsy and Knuckles invite you to Stop by to Celebrate Checkers Birthday!!!



Bugsy Here: It's a Happy, Happy Day over here at the condo. It's Checkers' Birthday and we've surprised him with a party. Full disclosure: Checkers is not a real mouse... He is a cartoon mouse, but is just as deserving of a birthday celebration as any of us. After all, he narrated our book and filled in for us while we were in the Caribbean... and he's like a brother to us.

So, we decided to honor him with his own birthday party... and for everyone who comments and wishes Checkers a Happy Birthday, HH has agreed to give $1.00 to the North Brevard SPCA... So tell all your buddies to rush over for the commentathon (lets put the pinch on her purse).

The Story of Checkers in Brief...

Checkers came to live with HH even before we did. He found himself lost one day and when he couldn't find his way home, he decided to look for a new home. Living in Florida can be dangerous for little guys -- what with alligators and such lurking around. So, Checkers knew he had found the home of his dreams when he saw the three-story condo.


So he happened to knock on HH's door first and was pleased when she took him in.

At that time, he wore red shorts all the time, but when The Boys came to live with HH, they kept mistaking Checkers for their ball, cuz it was red too. So, HH made him some checkered pants and starting calling him Checkers, and that fixed that.

So, Happy Birthday Checkers.... we love you ...


We would love it if you would join us for some birthday cake. Hope you like cheese, cuz Checkers' Special Request was Swiss CHEESEcake with CreamCHEESE frosting.

Thanks for coming to the party and enjoy....


Oh.... and unfortunately, Checkers couldn't reach the candles, so we helped him blow them out. Do not worry.... he got to make the wish, though.

Because it is Checkers' Birthday, we are featuring his new selfie. We are participating in the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop put on by The Cat on My Head blog.



Feel free to join in...


Have a great day.... and thanks for coming.

hugs, Knuckles

Sunday Funnies - DOUBLE TROUBLE - Vacation Part 2

Good Morning... Knuckles Here: I'm the narrator of Part 2 of our vacation. Before we start... Thanks for those who inquired about my paw. It is all better now. And, a bit of advice: Don't high-five a crab.

That being said.... Here we go with the other half of our adventure.

Bugsy saw some folks para-sailing and wanted to try. I told him that I would sit that one out because my paw was still hurting then. That was mostly true... part of the reason too was that it was very high and I thought I'd enjoy it more from the boat. Here is my wonderful brother sailing through the air....


After that, I got to choose our activity and I chose the jet ski. What fun that was with the dolphins swimming beside us... We had a great time.... And please note that Yellow Bird couldn't make the trip, but we had a bird from down there join us. Cool!!!

150524jetskism We did a few other water activities, but we know that water makes some of you queasy, so we'll tell you a little about our land activities. We spent a whole day at the beach, playing in the sand and the ocean... and drinking drinks with these great little umbrellas in them...

150524beachsmAnd when we weren't at the beach, we were at the pool... I swam and swam, but Bugsy was more interested in chatting with Babs the bikini kitty. Again with the umbrellas drinks too.


We had a wonderful vacation. The only drawback was that we got a tad too much sun. You'll see what I mean in our Sunday Selfie. Put on your sunglasses for this one. Here we are .... If you think we're wearing our sunglasses and our would be wrong. The white is just where the glasses and necklaces protected us from the sun.... Oh...oh...!

150524vacationselfiesmHope you all have a great Sunday... We're participating in the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop put on by The Cat on My Head blog. If you'd like to join in, feel free.

Cat4-300x300Have a great day.

Hugs, Bugsy and Knuckles

Starting this Sunday, were gonna post the Sunday Funnies here as well as on HE's other blog.  Just trying to make it easier for those who get notices here... To get you started, here's last week's ...

The Vacation... Part I


Hi Everybuddy:  BUGSY here... We're Back!!! and I get to tell you about the first part of our vacation. First of all, we missed you, but... OMC we had a great time...

I don't know if you all know this, but we only travel by hot air balloon. Only way to go.  This first picture is when we flew over Miami on our way to the Caribbean. I was a little worried about running into one of those buildings, but Knuckles is a good driver.



(Do you see that, there's a Yellow Bird in Miami too)...

Well, we flew all night... then the next morning at sunrise, we landed on the lawn (thankfully not in the pool) of our hotel. Here we are coming in for a landing.


One of the main reasons for our trip was to swim with the fishies --- but before that, Knuckles insisted he wanted to go flyboarding.  If you don't know what that is, Google it.  It is amazing and Knuckles is one crazy boy for wanting to do it. Anyway, it's where these jets are hooked to your feet and you fly over the water.

While Knuckles was doing that, I was on the phone with our insurance agent.... MOL!!!

vacation5smWell... you might have guessed, Knuckles did live through that... thank goodness!! Next, we swam with the fishies and it was beautiful and peaceful...


Knuckles tried to High-Five a crab and the crab misunderstood...

vacation4smMeowza!  That hurt... Knuckles is recovering and we'll show you the rest of our adventures next week...

It was such a great vacation.... we have lots more to tell, but for now here's my selfie for the Sunday Selfie blog hop sponsored by The Cat on My Head...


Oops... a little blurry... Well, have a great Sunday.  Sure is good to be home and to hug HH and Checkers...

hugs to all of you too.... BUGSY

We're moving... but you're coming with us I hope...

dca7c-bkatwork Oh...Oh... HH has her panties all twisted up.  (Just a figure of  speech...)  She has an announcement.  We are nervous... Can this be good?  Don't know....

Our new address is....

This is what she wrote on her other blog this morning.....

I have had two cat blogs in my day. One was about Max the Quilt Cat and the other was about HH and The Boys (HH... that's me... is short for Her Highness). The boys are my current cats, Bugsy and Knuckles.

 I love telling the stories of the cats; but with blogs on writing and art and the two other blogs (Florida Book News and Brevard Art News) that I write to help Florida artists and writers; I've had to consolidate -- just not enough hours in the day. 

 I hope all of you, who follow Bugsy and Knuckles, will follow them over here (Note from Knuckles... "Here" means at I'll be keeping you up to date a couple of times a week on their antics and their opinions of my opinions... 

We'll try hard to have articles and postings of interest to all of you.. So go to and sign on to receive the posts by email (or though RSS feed or whatever you do) if you want. And you know we love comments. 

So, drop on by.... 


 Lou and The Boys

So that's what she wrote... And you know what?. HH has been jumping around trying to do it all for so long.... but we haven't been able to comment much and we haven't been able to read your blogs as much as before, so we have our paws crossed that this will solve the problem.

Bugsy and I will still have our voice and get our pictures took and posted, and HH will have more time to post with everything all on one blog.  Hope it works for you, cuz we love you all and of course.... you know that Max loves you too.

See you at our new digs....

Hugs, Bugsy and Knuckles

Funny Farm Felines are a big hit in New Hampshire

You know these kitties for sure. They are the famous Funny Farm Felines.  If you don't know them, please go visit their blog 

Well,  these are the portraits that HH painted of them during the 30 day challenge.  And today, since it's Thankful Thursday, we are here to tell you we are thankful for them and thankful for their portraits. 

Why, you ask? You know we've been selling some of the paintings on the For Amy site to raise funds for Amy.... (You can read about that over there.)  Well, in addition to the on-line fund raiser, this past Friday night there was an in-person fund raiser in New Hampshire too... To participate in that, HH and her friend Sheila decided that the Funny Farm Felines are so cute as a group that they needed to make a personal appearance at the fund raiser.  So, Sheila shipped them all up there.

WOW... they were a huge hit and brought in $250 for the cause and they found a wonderful home where they will be able to hang together forever.

So... thank you Funny Farm Felines for posing for the portraits and thank you Jan for sending countless photos to help HH paint them...

Have a great day everybuddy.

hugs, Bugsy and Knuckles

Don't forget to set your clocks tonight...

We start early  over here thinking about the time change.  Finally, it's time to get ready for the big change on Sunday morning.

What's your morning routine?  We love this time of year. It's FALL BACK time.  That means we'll get our breakfast one hour (and if we play our cards right, maybe even two hours early).

Here's how it works for us

6AM - Daily Savings Time.. we get our breakfast... In order to make sure it's on time, we start doing zoomies on HH's body at 5AM.  Sometimes, she lasts until 6AM, sometimes not.

On Sunday, the  worst case is we'll get our food one hour early with 5:00AM being the new 6:00AM. We will start our zoomies at the new 5:00AM which is the old 4:00AM....Dizzy yet?

Long story short: We're hoping HH will be so confused by the time change, she'll feed us 2 hours early...

Any Questions....?
