New Year's Dance Party... Come one... Come all!!!

Come on everybuddy. Knuckles and I have donned our fancy shirts and bow ties and are ready to party in the New Year... 

Come as you are... We don't care. We just care that you've got your dancing shoes on and are ready to have a great time.

I (Bugsy) am your DJ for the evening.  I've turned my bow tie to the back and am posing at the turntable for just a moment before I...

Crank up the music and get the party Hopping.... 

Any requests?

We're wishing all of you a very Happy New Year.... Hope 2013 is good to each and every one of you..

Easy Like Sunday...

Bugsy: Easy Like Sunday behind the flowers.

Merry, Merry Christmas Eve Eve, and have a wonderful Easy Like Sunday.

It turned cold here a couple of days ago.... Oh... you'll laugh at us, because it does get up in the 60s during the day. But it was down in the high 30s during the night.  Knuckles and I were fighting over the prime real estate next to HH last night just to keep warm... We do admit that we are spoiled living in Florida and tend to get cold long before any of you northern cats would.

Just wanted to let you know that we're gonna enjoy our Easy Like Sunday.  Hope you have a great day too.

Merry Christmas to All

Happy Holidays to Everybuddy!!!

HH sent this ecard out by email yesterday. If you didn't get one, it's just because she couldn't find your email address.... Please feel free to take it from here.

Happy day to all of you!!!

Christmas Card Exchange 2012

 HH is not gonna like me telling this, but it must be said....

 She signed up for a Christmas Card Exchange with Fur Everywhere and that list... Well... last night she started (with help of Bugsy and Knuckles) writing our cards... When she got to our name on the list, she saw, to her consternation, that she had not sent in our snail mail address.....  

Guess that answers the questions the boys were having about why they were not receiving many snail mail Christmas cards.  MOL>>>>> oh well, next year she promises to get it right.

But we are receiving many ecards... Thank you very much. And she has made a special tab up top for them... Here's what we received ...

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

Max on 12/12/12

It's 12/12/12

and that's magical.
 All sorts of people are getting married today and doing special things because it's 12/12/12. Do you remember 11/11/11 last year or 10/10/10 the year before? Well it seems that beans rush to get married on those days because they think it's a lucky day.

So we just wanted to make sure we acknowledged it twelve...twelve...twelve-ness of that day... just in case there was something about extra treats to kitties who do....

Hope you have a magical day....

Hugs, Max

 We mean it..... Come and get 'em!!!

Knuckles decorates Bugsy for Christmas

Max here.....:  Bugsy wasn't too into decorating for Christmas like Knuckles was.... So... while Bugsy was starting to get his Easy Like Sunday on, Knuckles decided to decorate him.  First he planted those little tiny Christmas trees you see at the bottom of the picture, then he added the holly in the lower right corner, the pine cones in the upper right corner, the bird on his head and some snow and frost.   Knuckles can't wait til Bugsy wakes up to see his reaction.

We're hoping you are having a wonderful weekend... HH is busy getting the condo in shape for the holidays.  Enjoy your day.

hugs, Max

Knuckles has decorated for Christmas

Good morning, pals....  I'm the first one done and I'm proud of my office.  I decorated it with holly, snowflakes, frost, a bird and a twig.  We have petitioned HH for a tree, but she says absolutely not. Then she went on to say something about me getting into the cupboard and bombing Bugsy with cat food cans and yada yada yada and "...a tree wouldn't be standing for two seconds in this house." 

I swear that I wouldn't touch it.  I would just look at it... WELL.... if she won't give in, maybe I'll put a tree in my office....

In any case.... hope you have a wonderful weekend and that you get a tree of your very own.

We are waiting for the rush to end. Easy LIke Sunday

Good morning pals... HH has been running around like a crazy woman the last few days so we are staying out of the way.  Yesterday and today she has an Open House at her studio. I'm pleased to say that the original of this Sweetie painting sold...

yesterday, so she was very happy about that.  So we'll have one more day of her frenzy and we'll get her back.

So we're here to wish you all a very pleasant Easy Like Sunday.... we're off to take our naps now.

Christmas is just around the corner

First off, we are very excited cuz we just put up our Christmas Header.... It's a wonderful thing for sure. Ann does such beautiful work. Anyhooooooooo..... we are also very excited cuz we know that new toys are on the horizon and maybe a treat or two.

We're too cute to get in trouble, right?

We just read on Molly's blog about her letter to Santa Paws and we thought we ought to get ahead of a little incident that happened the other night.

So, Bugsy being an impartial third party was elected to write to Santa Paws for both of us, because he seems better at maintaining the right balance of humility and joy of the season to please the old guy. 

Bugsy started off by explaining that we don't have a chimney and that we live on the third floor, so if'n his knees are bothering him when he comes to make the delivery, he can use the elevator.... Then Bugsy gently eased into telling Santa about my misadventure the other night.

I (Knuckles) am writing this blog post about the incident because there's a story going around that I was a bad boy the other night and I want to make doubly sure that Santa knows that it was a fluke and will never happen again. Certainly, my blog post on top of the letter from Bugsy will convince him that we are sincere.

So, anyway. here's what happened.  You see, HH heard a noise in the middle of the night.... a rustle-of -plastic noise.  So she got up and tiptoed toward the kitchen. When she reached the doorway, she found Bugsy playing lookout. When he saw HH he got his OH - OH eyes on, but he forgot to warn me that she was rounding the corner.

So, long story short ... the scene in the kitchen goes like this.  I'm a smart boy, so it was no trouble for me to get the lid off the garbage can. I just never thought to try before. Well, when HH entered, I was on the kitchen floor with the handle of the Tall Kitchen Garbage Bag in my mouth, and I was pulling with all my might to pull the garbage bag out of the garbage can. 

I know it wasn't such a smart thing to do, but I was just looking for a little snack. I guess I should thank my lucky stars she caught me when she did. Now that I think about it, I would not have fared as well if I had succeeded in my mission and had strewn garbage throughout the room...

So, Bugsy is writing Santa Paws to explain that no harm was done, just in case Santa should catch wind of my most recent activities.  And, I'm confessing in this post just to make sure Santa knows that I mean it when I say that I didn't mean any harm and that there is no reason for any coal in my stocking this year.

That's the truth as I know it.  Have a nice day........ Knuckles

Little guys... not so much on Cyber Monday

Max here.....  I heard Amazon did great on Cyber Monday. We watched those pictures with HH on TV of them rolling out the sales on those big conveyor belts.

 Cyber Monday was not so good for the little guy like HH, but it was worth a shot.  Next year we'll start talking it up sooner.

Oh well.... we enjoyed your comments about the kitty we put up yesterday.  Here's another of HH's kitties...

Hope you all have a great day... We are gonna have Toooona, cuz it's Toooona Tuesday you know.

Easy Like Sunday

Good Morning Pals,

Before we settle down to Easy Like Sunday, I just wanted to mention that HH is getting ready for Cyber Monday.  This pic is one of many on her Fine Art America site. She's sprucing things up so there will be lots of choices for shoppers tomorrow.

Hope you have a wonderful Sunday.

Meet the Authors Book Fair was a huge success...

Flat Max here.... HH and I had a great time at the book fair and we sold some books too.  I enjoyed the attention the most. People picked me up and I think HH took a couple of pictures of me. I'll show them to you once the slow poke puts them on the computer.

Anyway we had a great time and now it's back to business on Monday here.... It's Thanksgiving week though, and you know what that means.....


It's gonna be a good week for treats, pals.  Keep your eyes open and make sure your noses are in working order.... You just don't wanna miss anything.

Knuckles looks like he's smelling some turkey already.....

Max on Meet the Authors Book Fair

Good morning pals.... today is a big day.  Flat Max and HH are going to the Eau Gallie Civic Center for the Meet the Authors Book Fair.  They are taking copies of my book and will be there all day today and tomorrow. 

The book fair is in conjunction with the ArtWorks Eau Gallie Fine Art Festival in Melbourne Florida.  We know it's gonna be a great day.... We'll let you know after the weekend how it went. I'm sure Flat Max will have plenty to tell about the whole deal.

Have a great Saturday....everybuddy...

Bugsy on Thankful Thursday

Sometimes HH groans when she bends this way or that... Did you ever think how lucky we are to be so bendy.  Look at me.  I'm sleeping with my head on my back feet and I can do it for hours and hours without a problem.

I know HH and your bean can't do that.  Dogs even are not quite as bendy as we are.

 Anyway, HH said that it's Thankful Thursday and I should say something I'm thankful for. I know it's not a big thing to be thankful for being bendy, but I'm saving my big guns for next Thursday.  You know why?  Cuz there just might be some turkey to be thankful for then.

Have a great day... and oh... I'm thankful for you... all my friends,... too.

Where's my beeee?

Good morning everybuddy... Bugsy here.  Do you remember my bumblebee toy?  Kjelle Bus gave it to me quite a long time ago... I love it, but it's  currently missing.  Because it is little, I shove it under things (couches, closet doors, etc) and  then I can't play with it for a while... at least until HH finds it for me.  Then I throw it around some and it goes missing again.

Well, it's been missing quite a while.  I'm putting up this picture so when HH comes by to check my spelling, she'll be reminded to go look for my beeeeee. 

Here's hoping she'll get the hint.  If not, I have a beeless day, but at least it's Tuna Tuesday and that it something to enjoy.

Have a great Tuna Tuesday everybuddy.

Happy Veteran's Day from Bugsy, Knuckles and Max

Did you see our new header?  It's Knuckles and me.... UP C|LOSE AND PERSONAL... Thank you Ann... we love it and HH loves it too. She just finished painting a picture of Knuckles' eyes, so she especially loves this header.  Wonderful.

Did you see that something went crazy with our blogger and the Sunday post posted on Saturday and then again on Sunday? What's up with that?  Such a crazy deal.

So, we just ordered our Christmas Cards... Are we doing that snail mail exchange again this year?  Did we miss the sign up.  Let us know, cuz we are prepared......

We are posting for the third time today..... Unprecedented... but we can't forget to say Happy Veteran's Day and to thank all our veterans for their service....

So everyone.... have a nice week.

hugs, Bugsy

Good morning everybuddy...Knuckles here...

Before I go to get my easy on, I'm studying HH's to do list for the next several weeks.  I'm gonna have to make some adjustments to it, because it doesn't look like she's left enough at-home time in it.

Next weekend...all weekend... she has a book fair at the Eau Gallie Civic Center. It's in conjunction with the ArtWorks festival.  Granted, she'll be in town and will be home every night, but we ususally get full access to her on the weekends.

The next weekend is Thanksgiving. I think that weekend will be okie-dokie for us.  I think she'll be around and maybe even make a turkey... Yay...

The next weekend there is a open house and sale at her studio, so she has to be there all day Saturday and most of Sunday.

 Bugsy and I have conferred. We have decided that we'll let her maintain the schedule as long as she stays home one day during the week for every day she is gone on the weekend.

Now, with that settled... I'm off to get my easy on.

Have a great Sunday.

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween Everybuddy!!!

Happy Halloween pals... we're getting ready to celebrate.  HH made this picture of me to look spooky... Does it work?

And here's one of Knuckles... We don't even need costumes this year.

Have a great day... and we're continuing to send purrs to our friends who had Sandy visit them....

Hurricane Purrs to all our friends...

Good Mancat Monday Morning.... Knuckles here.  We are sending out good wishes today to all those who are in the hurricane areas.  We were so lucky that Sandy stayed out to sea when she/he went past us, but we know that today and tonight and tomorrow are the crucial days for all of you.

We're sending out Hurricane purrs to all of you.  If'n you lose power, just know that the purrrrrs are still coming your way.

Max on the Cat Abstract Painting....the answers

 MOL.  We had a great time reading all your guesses about the painting that HH did.  She hid 3 cats in it.  The black arrows are pointing to the cats.  And she hid 2 mice in it.  The pink arrows are pointing to the mice.

On the right side, the top arrow points to the cat that is upside down. It's just his head. On the right side, the middle black arrow points to a blue cat's head.  His ears are shorter than the others. And again on the right side, the bottom black arrow points to a yellow cat hiding behind that bit of blue.

As for the pink arrows. Those are pointing to mice.  The one in the center is almost on his back. And the one to the left side of the picture is climbing up that left wall.

That's it pals.  Some of you were close.  Remington was the only one who said 3... Congrats Remington - you were right. 

I didn't see the elephant before and I thank The Paw Relations for pointing that out. 

And Frankie Furter.... sorry pal, I don't see the weenie butt... Let me know where that one is.

Happy TGIF pals. 

Have a great weekend.

Wordless Wednesday: Max on ... abstract cat art...

Okay pals... how many cats do you see in this painting..?  And, any other animals...?

Have a great Wordless Wednesday pondering this one...

Finally, My Portrait

Good Morning Pals..... I am so excited. You remember way back when that Bugsy put up his portrait... and I was looking around the condo for mine.  Well, after a long, long, long, long wait... I finally have my own portrait.

((drum roll))....................................................................

Here it is....


HH even painted it with me burrowed down into my favorite comforter.  So, I'm happy now and am sorry I created such a ruckus when Bugsy got his portrait....

Now.......Where to hang it.....?  Looking around the condo. Maybe on the front door.

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday.....

Good Easy-Like-Sunday Morning to All

Knuckles here.  I'm your Easy-Like-Sunday spokescat for this week.  I've decided to get my easy on in my cube.  What better place to take a little snooze.  Sometimes Bugsy joins me, but that is by invitation only as it IS MY cube, after all. 

Where ever you decide to spend your Easy, have a great day and we'll see you tomorrow.

The Addictive Blogger Award

We are so excited.  Nerissa nominated us for the Blog Award. The boys didn't know what addictive meant, so I looked it up in the dictionary and it said, being prone to addiction.... Ha!  They didn't know what addiction was either, but they go excited when they found out.

addiction = state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming
They got excited because to have someone say that their blog is habit-forming.... Wooo hoooooo.... high praise indeed. Thank you Nerissa... Please, if you don't know Nerissa, stop by and say hi... CLICK HERE

So for the award we are supposed to  share why we blog and how our journey began. First of all, we blog because we love it and we love all the friends we've made on the Internet. 

As to our journey.... Well, for those that don't know it, there are three of us here.  To cats in residence (Bugsy and Knuckles) and the big guy who started it all, Max, who is an angel cat. Many of you may not know, but Max was over the bridge before the blog started.  You see, HH was writing a book about Max when he was about 18 years old. At 18.5 years, Max ran off to the Rainbow Bridge. After that, HH just couldn't get back to writing the book.  Along about that time, Twitter and blogs were just starting to be big, so HH decided to give Max a blog and see if that would help her get going again writing about Max.  It did and she finished the book and all.  So, the blog started in 2009... well in 2011 (January) HH finally was ready for a new kitty.  She went to the SPCA to look around and came back with TWO... Bugsy and Knuckles.  Here they are on their Gotcha Day...

Anyway, that's how our journey began.  We love the blogging and now the boys, Bugsy mostly, but Knuckles some of the time are beginning to contribute to the blog too,

So that's how our journey began.  Thanks so much to Nerissa for the wonderful award.  Have a great day.!!!

And, remember..... Max Loves YA!!!
