Happy Catnip New Year!!

We’re kind of being mellow today.  Christmas wore us out!

You didn’t have to get into EVERYTHING!

Isn’t that what Christmas is for?  All those packages filled with toys and treats and catnip smells.

Some were mine and you tried to open all of them.

Oh well, I’m just a kitten.  What can you expect?

Obviously, not much!

Mom says we’re supposed to say Happy New Year to everyone.  What does that mean?

It means that tomorrow it will be 2017.

What is it today?

It’s the last day of 2016.

I’ve never seen 2017 before.

None of us have but we’re hoping God will bless us with some wonderful moments and be right by our sides during the tough times.  We hope and pray that will hold true for all of our readers.

What’s the Big Deal?

So Mom let us go out for a bit now that it's 2015.

We thought maybe things would be different now that it’s 2015.  Mom said it’s a new year and I guess it is ‘cuz she changed the kitty calendar on the wall.

Is there anything different on the other side of the fence?  It doesn't look like it to us.

Let me in Mom!  I think 2015 is just as cold as 2014 was.

I want in, too.  My toesies are getting cold.

Dear humans and fur people.  So far we’re not impressed with 2015.  We’re not sure why you stayed up all sorts of hours to celebrate.  We’ve discovered that it’s still cold and there’s still white stuff on the ground.  Maybe 2016 will be different.  How long until we celebrate that?

Happy New Year

Shakespeare, are you doing what Mom said?

Did you call me?  I’m just playing house in this cool box Mom got.

You’re supposed to be working.

Working on what?

Working on your New Year’s Resolutions like I am.

I don’t see anything on that paper.

I know.  I’m having problems with it.  What is a resolution anyway?  I looked it up on the internet and it said something about being determined.

Well that already fits us!   Why did Mom say we had to write resolutions?  She knows we want to play when she’s home and not do work stuff.

Well, I think it has something to do with the fact that this is the end of 2012. 

Oh nooooooooooooooo.  What’s happening to 2012?  What are we going to do?

Relax!  The humans have a little over 365 days in what they call a year.  2012 ends tonight at midnight and then it becomes 2013.

So when we wake Mom up for breakfast it will be 2013?

Yes…..as long as we don’t wake her up before midnight.

I wouldn’t think of doing that.  Well…..I might think of it but I know I shouldn’t do it.  Hey…is that a resolution?  I think I’ll take a little nap and see if there are some things I should really be determined about in 2013, so don’t bother me.

I think it’s kind of sad that 2012 is ending.  That means that the next big thing will probably be your birthday and we’ll never hear the end of that.

From the Mom:

Boys, you’ve made 2012 so much fun for me.  You’ve grown into real nice kitties.  I still remember the day I first adopted the two of you.  Hemingway, you were first and I counted on you to be nice to your new little brother when he arrived.  You still have your little quarrels, but you also look out for each other.  I think the best resolutions you two could make would be to stay as sweet and thoughtful as you are.  I know you want to wish all of your fur people and human friends a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR.  All of us hope that all of you dear friends have a year that’s filled with love, hope, peace and joy.  May this be the year when humans really reach out to help others.
