Welcoming 2016!

Adapted from Instagram #2015bestnine
Today's the day we start to use the new 2016 CB weekly planner which has a star of the cats' blogosphere featuring every week.



Guess who's the star of the first week?
It's my pal Cody from Cat Chat with Caren and Cody!

Modesty forbids that yours truly should boast that he is included in this illustrious line up around about the end of May ...... like week commencing the 22nd  ...... though, of course, I haven't actually looked! ;-)

Thank you to everyone who went to the trouble of sending Christmas cards (e-cards and snail mail) and even gifts. This was most unexpected as we didn't send out very many this year at all, but rather we wanted to use the dosh saved to help worthy causes. (Truth be told, The Staff was suffused by languorousness - not sure if that's a word, but it will be from now on. The OED has been informed!)

But we do want to wish everyone a very happy and healthy 2016 full of treats and scritches and belly rubs. And we pray for humans to wake up and smell the catnip! 


We are linking with Athena and Marie for their Caturday Art blog hop

  1. Happy New Year! We hope 2016 brings everything you need and much of what you want. We're not sure humans ever will "wake up", though.

    Purrs and peace.

  11. What a great idea on posting your IG "Best Nine"! I may copy you and do that too! You really did pick some great ones to include in your collage. Hope you and your mum had a nice New Year's Day today! Ours has been very relaxing, not doing much.

  12. Oh, Austin. May sounds like a wonderful month to adore you. Cody made a great start though. We are now wondering about two things. a) Why don't we have a calender? And even more important b) Why aren't the best Finnish girl cats included in this collection??? Mom has obviously failed in one of her main fields of responsibility.

  15. That is a lovely collage, Austin. I like your starry night. My mum is running the 2015 calendar with the 2016 one for now so she doesn't miss seeing my friends.
    I haven't looked either of course, but I have heard that there is a good page for the week commencing 17th July.

  21. Haaaa!!! Happy New Year Dear Furiends!!! Thanks for the shout out!!!!! I am not too modest to boast that I was in the calendar!! The way it turned out, TWICE in 2015 (but I know that was a mistake), because I was in February of 2015 and then the last week of 2015 heading into 2016! But I am happy! Love you guys....my lame Mom who says we have no money, only sent cards to the kitties that we got them from. We didn't mean to snub you....we are just broke lmao!!! Thanks for being such a good pal! Love, Cody xoxoxo catchatwithcarenandcody

  24. Austin we didn't do cards and gifts and stuff this year either although it seems EVERYONE ELSE did! Hope you and your family have an extra good new year though - we're hoping for a KINDER 2016 with a dose of fun and good health thrown in for good measure! HAPPY NEW YEAR.

    Hugs, Sammy
