We were so excited yesterday to welcome our holiday visitors. Now we know that many of you, as well as most of us, head UTB, when strangers enter your house, but for these two it was totally unnecessary.

If you follow our brofur Bailey’s blog, Bailey Boat Cat, you know that he has two pals, Sharkie and Blue. You also know that he’s been teasing you lately about them going on a secret surprise adventure.

That adventure is spending the holidays with Kitties Blue. They arrived yesterday from Florida where they had been vacationing with Bailey’s pawrents, Lou and James. The humans returned to Rome, but Blue and Sharkie traveled north to visit with us. We hope they won’t mind hanging around for a little while as it is definitely not sunny and warm here in Virginia as it was in Florida.

They had a quiet day resting up from their trip, but we did have a brief meet and greet, and they checked out some of the Christmas decorations. Here are the fist photos of them meeting Fiona, Calista Jo and the holiday bears, including Pooh and Tigger under the tree. And there was even a quick foray into the tree.










Sharkie and Blue will be meeting the rest of us in the days to come as well as checking out more Christmas decorations and the catio. Weather permitting, our humans will also attempt to show them a bit of our fine city.

A Little of This & a Little of That

Mom did her shopping today for the Santa Kitty Toy Drive and will deliver the goodies tomorrow. We will tell you about the recipients of the booty and share photos next week.

We were asked to remind you that we will be having our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop this weekend. We know that Christmas is just a few days away so if you are willing, maybe you can sport your best holiday look in your photo. No pressure or requirement to do so, however.

We’ve been a bit scarce lately with regard to visiting and commenting as we are sure you’ve noticed. Please accept our apologies. The typist has been involved in all sorts of Christmasy things. We are working on catching up with all of you, but it will take a while.

We’ll be back tomorrow with some Caturday Art for Athena and Marie‘s blog hop. Hope to see you then.

Ho, ho, ho, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
