Remembering Paris

Today is Allie (Friends Furever) and Angel Mau’s fourth wedding anniversary. Mauricio had already planned the party, and we felt we should celebrate as he’d wished in honor of him and his beloved wife.

One of Mau’s favorite trips was the one he and Allie took to Paris with Cat Scouts in 2015. Consequently, he had planned a Paris-themed party with the intent of sharing this special photo of Allie.



He also had some additional photos from that trip he wanted to share.



Anniversary Celebration

When Cooper Murphy volunteered to take over the baking duties at Mau’s Cat Scout Bake Shop, he was happy to see Mau had the anniversary event entirely planned. He also had the recipe and decorating instructions for the cake recorded.

We think Cooper did a pretty good job following Mau’s instructions.


4th anniversary


Please join us for cake and champagne and then help yourself to all the other goodies.














Also, help yourself to kitty macarons and anything from the dessert table to take home for your humans and fursibs.



Finally Mau left an anniversary card for Allie. We are so happy that Cat Scouts taught Mau to be prepared. He left very little for us to do to pull off this party!


4th anniversary card


We did help Mau out by adding the halo to his photo on the card.

We hope you have enjoyed this party. Mau is here in spirit.

Thankful Thursday

Admittedly this has not been our best week, but we still have much for which to be thankful. Mauricio was in our lives for more than 15 years. He was a character who kept us entertained, and he loved absolutely everybody. He kept us safe by patrolling the yard and guarding the front porch. Most importantly, he watched out for the other feline family members. We loved him dearly, as did his lovely Allie and so many others. We feel fortunate and thankful to have had him in our family.

Dad Tom and I cannot express just how thankful we are for the outpouring of love and support we have received here, on Facebook and at Cat Scouts. Your friendships mean the world to us.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by Brian. To join, post on your blog for what you are thankful and then click on Brian’s badge to add your link.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

We did not write a poem today for Teddy and Angel Sammy’s (Two Spoiled Cats) poetry challenge. We hope they’ll forgive us. A poem based on this week’s inspirational photo will be included on our Friendly Fill-Ins/Feline Friday post.

Happy Anniversary Allie and Angel Mau! A reason for a grand party. Allie and Angel Mau make a dashing couple. Trust Mau to be so prepared that Coop could just step in and make such fine goodies. Now, Coop those tuna macaroons are heavenly. Are you adding your own touches of brilliance to Mau’s already superb goodies? Excellent, Tyebe is delighted and adores them. The cake is beyond belief……gorgeous. I couldn’t have you cut into it for us. Maybe when its all messed up.
We raise our glasses 4 times to honour the years you’ve enjoyed together.

My furs are wet with tears. What a wonderful celebration Mau planned for us. He was also so thoughtful and loving. I am happy Cooper Murphy took over the Bake Shop. I know he will make Angel Mau proud. I miss him so much. Our wedding day was so spectacular and the second best day of my life. The BEST day was the day I met Mau and my life changed forever. We were lucky to have so many wonderful times together. Thank you for helping us celebrate and for sharing the beautiful card he made for me.

smoochies and love to Mau at the Bridge,

An anniversary deserves a celebration no matter what – and while Mauricio has his wings and halo now, he is forever in Allie’s heart AND our hearts as well so that’s something to celebrate. I think it is a most magical anniversary celebration Mau planned – he loved everyone but especially his beautiful Allie. This is a beautiful day no matter what because a day to celebrate LOVE is always important and we’re happy to be a part of it. I life my glass to toast: “To Allie and Mau – then, now, and forever in love”…………

Hugs, Teddy (and Mom too)

Love from Marjorie and Angels Dot and Harvey
