Monday A-MEWS-Ments

The words 'Auld Lang Syne' literally translates from old Scottish dialect meaning 'Old Long Ago' and is about love and friendship in times past. The lyrics in the song Auld Lang Syne referring to 'We'll take a Cup of Kindness yet' relate to a drink shared by men and women to symbolize friendship. I thought it appropriate at year's end to extend the 'cup of kindness' thought to our little fur friends in shelters who would love to start the New Year in a warm loving home. All of these listings today donate all or almost all of the proceeds to animal rescue. If you are considering a pet this year, PLEASE make your local shelter your first stop! These animals are more than willing to give love and friendship to you throughout the year.

Happy New Year!

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,

And never brought to mind?

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,

For auld lang syne, my dear

For auld lang syne.

We'll take a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

Please take a few minutes to visit these wonderful shops and perhaps purchase something to help them in their efforts to provide love and care for sheltered animals.

My Gift for CHRISTMAS 2010

Since our family is so large with seven children, four married, we draw names for Christmas. There is only one rule…the gift MUST be home made. We have had the most unique, funny, interesting and awesome gifts over the years. Every year just gets better. This year my son, Caleb, drew my name. He has learned the art of graphic design this year, and I remember saying at the time we drew names that whoever Caleb draws would be a lucky one. I had seen the kinds of things he was creating and knew that whatever he made would be awesome. Needless to say, when I found out he had drawn my name, I was thrilled! This is what he made for me!

These are two of my three guinea pigs, Tooey the white, and Thea the gray. Cody, another son, sent him pictures and he made this vector drawing for me.

I LOVE it!!

Thank you, Caleb!

This is the BEST!!!

It now hangs above their cages. Right where I can see it!

Caleb works for ZigZap Technologies. He designs websites, makes business cards, and does these cool vector drawings. He does any pet for about $20. You can reach him at

Rudolph the red-nosed kitty

Had a very shiny nose

And everyone who saw it,

Laughed until their eyes would close

As all of the other kitties

Danced around the Christmas tree

Rudolph the red-nosed kitty

Drove Santa Paws that night with glee!

A Meowy Christmas to all!

Today we meet a very happy kitty family that belongs to Etsy shop owner, Jennifer, from


Jennifer will receice 50 FREE TWEETS for being a part of Furbaby Friday!

I have had cats in my house since I moved to CT from PA. It started with finding a pair of black kittens in a junk yard that were only 4 weeks old. Merlin lived to be 20 years old (he went to cancer) and Corner lived to be 22 years old (it was her time).

Bagherra is a 12 year old black and white tuxedo kitty. We found him at a local lumber yard in a bird cage on the counter when he was about 7 weeks old. The guys that worked there found him on the steps that morning. My husband took him out of the cage, and he climbed up his arm, curled around his neck, purred, and would not let go. So he came home with us. He is the shy kitty but loves to wrestle with Buster.

Buster P. is the 18 lb tiger with HUGE paws. He is 8 years old. We found him under a dumpster at my old job. He was curled up on some trash where he somehow avoided being hurt when the dumpster was picked up. He was only 6 weeks old. I took him to my vet who said he was fine. Buster loves to clean our noses when we hold him in our arms.

He also loves to curl up with Lilu.

Lilu, Pooka, and Morgana, the three sisters, found us at the CT Human Society. They are 3 years old.

Lilu is a tiny tiger that weights about 8 lbs. She looks like a 6 month old cat. She likes to follow us from room to room. When she is happy she moves her tail ALOT!! She will climb anything!

Pooka is a tiger that weighs about 8 lbs also. She is small like her sister. She should have been a soccer star. She can get anything with her paws. She, too, will climb anything.

Morgana is a tiger with orange areas under the tiger stripes and weighs 10 lbs. She is a big mush kitty. She loves to roll on her back and play with a string….and is another climber.

Morgana and Lilu

The three girls will race through the house while the two boys just watch them. They all are great joys to have around. Cats are like potato chips. You can't have just one!

Jennifer makes the cutest stuffed kitties in her shop!

Visit, and you’ll probably end up longing, as I do, for your own!
