And it is SPARK DAY with Nellie

McGuffy’s who was hosting the Sparks is on hiatus.  She says “I truly do believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. There is hope. Together, we can light up the entire world!

Cinnamon's Outside Selfie Sunday

 We have had LOADS of snow falling this week, but it has NOT been very cold. The temperature has been just a few degrees either side of freezing and Mom and Alex have taken Cinnamon outside a lot to work off energy (she is a high energy dog!). Did you see the picture of the raccoon yesterday? Well this is what happened when Mom and Cinnamon got home!

Did you see that Mom? That cheeky raccoon is mooning me!!!

Now hes flipping the burd at me!!! I wanna go chase him!!!

He just said I was a wusssy! I'm going NOW!!!!! Wooof!! WooooOFFFF!! Woof!!!


Time passes, there is much barking!!!

Did you see that!  I chased that RAT FINK into the river! 

I am HAPPY! Can you use this shot for my selfie?

We are pawticipating in the Cat On My Head's Selfie Sunday!

We have a guest for Artsy Caturday!

It has been snowing, almost constantly since Monday. Every morning when Mom and Cinnie go for a walk they see Raccoon tracks.

Some of the raccoons have a den in a culvert that goes under the road at Haynes Street. 
Mom got a great shot of the tracks. She thought they would look cool as a kaleidoscope.

Walking home, they saw the raccoon that lives in the culvert between our House and Mr Fs. Mom took several shots as she thought he would look great for Selfie Sunday but it was too blurry. 

And you know what we do with blurry pictures...we turn them into art! This time we just used PhotoShop. We de-blurred him, we used burn, we used dodge, we changed the brightness, then we used a couple of filters, added a rainbow layer and changed the Top layer opacity and 
Meet our neighbor Bandit!

Bandit is really happy to be part of Caturday er Critterday Art!  You can click the picture to go and make the jigsaw puzzle!
I even got him to sign our waiver 
(who can trust a wild raccoon--those guys take everything that's not tied down!)
We are pawticipating in Athena and Marie's Caturday Art
 Caturday Art is a chance for all pets and their humans to get creative
 with their photos.
And if you're an artist feel free to share your animal art as well. We'd love to see it! But the focus of Caturday Art Blog Hop is to get artsy with your pet photos by adding filters (there are many free photo editors and apps available, as we're sure you all know.)
Have fun!

ALL Kozmo - Feline Friday! Tuxedo Cat Appreciation Day! Friendly Fill Ins!

Today is Tuxedo Appreciation Day and I get to celebrate it! 

CK put this out there a couple of weeks ago and many of the other cat bloggers have answered them and we learned a lot about each other. I wanted to answer these questions on Tuxedo Cat Appreciation Day!

1. My name is:  Kozmo Kowalik.

2. My nickname: Smarty Pants, Kozimoto, Koz Man, Brat, Gooood Boy.

3. My breed is: Domestic Shorthair, Tuxedo

4. My age is: 11 years old, They think my birthday was at the end of September so I am a Libra.

5. My favorite human food: Anything but vegetables, though I will eat carrot cake!

6. My biggest fear: Anything that makes loud noises like the vacuum cleaner, And Hats!!!

7. My favorite thing to do: Going for walks with Mom and Cinnamon, watching my catnip grow.

8. My favorite toy: Wand toys, the rolly ball, and and my new catnip stuffies.

9. Do I love car rides? I don't hate them, but I have been known to sing the songs of my people when we first start travelling!

10. Do I snore? Mom says I do, but I have never heard it! 

11. Where do I sleep? I always end up in Mom's bed, but I also really like the cup bed in the bay window and laying in my catnip in the summer.

12. Who is my favorite human? I was a really a Daddy's boy, but since he went over the Rainbow Bridge-its My Mom. I am growing to like my human brother, he lets me watch YouTube Bird Feeders on his iMac!

 It is Friday and that means it is Feline Friday and we are Hopping with Comedy Plus! (I LOVE Ms Sandee) Click on the button to go to her blog!


AND I'm doing the Friendly Fill-Ins!

  1. So far 2021 is OK, there is less snow than last year and Mom is not travelling taking Dad to Doctors and the Hospital. We are getting more Mom time.

  2. A book (or movie or song) title that best describes my life is "Simply Irresistible" (Robert Palmer) When Mom sings it to me, she changes the shes to hes.

  3. Moving back to Midway was a pleasant surprise.  

  4. I learned that bring live mousies in the house as a gift for Mom is a recipe for disaster.

Thanks for stopping by!

Last Thankful Thursday in January

 Hi Guys! Did you know that today is the full Wolf Moon!

The first Full Moon of the year is named after howling wolves. In some cultures, it was known as Old Moon, Ice Moon, Snow Moon, and the Moon after Yule.
For millennia, people across Europe, as well as Native American tribes, named the months after features they associated with the Northern Hemisphere seasons, and many of these names are very similar or identical. Today, we use many of these ancient month names as Full Moon names.

We have heavy clouds tonight, but we did hear the local wold pack howling the last few nights, so we expect we will hear them tonight as well. Do you think wolves really howl at the moon?

 Today is Thankful Thursday

I, Marvelous am thankful for so many things!  I am thankful I have a warm and happy home. I am thankful for the food and especially when we get tasty treats! I am thankful for my fur brother and sisters. I am thankful for my human brother (especially when I can snuggle with him in the "man cave" downstairs). I am thankful I can go outside so long as I don't leave the yard. I am thankful that I have blogging furrends (that's YOU)! I am thankful for all the blog hops that we can pawticipate in and meet other bloggers! 

We are purticularly Thankful that every Thursday Brian and family sponsor Thankful Thursday and we can see all the Thankfulness! 

 Please click Brian's Button and you can go and thank Brian too!

We also want to say how thankful we are for the Cat Blogosphere! We love to go there everyday and see all the great events and things that are happening as well as the linkys!

Weekly Pet Horoscope - January 26 - February 1, 2021

 Its the Weekly Horoscope written especially for Cats (and Dogs) by me for you! 

Cinnamon, my hairy slobbery sister felt we should write the horoscopes for all pets and not just cats! And being a multi-pet household, we agreed! 
You may not know exactly when you were born and what sign yous are, there are 2 ways you can pick the right sign. You can go to several horoscope sites and read the profiles to find which fits your pet. or you can use your Gotcha Day.

 Here are the scopes we have written for you for January 26 to February 1, 2021. With your Purrsonal lucky day.

Aries (Mar. 21- Apr. 20)  Your week starts with a BANG! You can find exciting and unexpected chances. But things slow down late Wednesday and you will need to use your charm and NOT your attitude to make things happen. By the weekend-things happen! You need to think fast to keep up. Take a break from the stress and take some me time with your family. Your purrsonal lucky day this week is Sunday. You are adored and pampered (as you should be).
Taurus (Apr. 21- May 21) Take your time and think before you leap! Just watch where you might land. You are both eagerness and energy, which could be a potent mixture. Towards the weekend, watch your schedule and take care of the details. But, do NOT commit to anything. This weekend, take risks and be sure to let everyone know how you feel. Your purrsonal lucky day this week is Thursday. You get exactly what you want. 
Gemini (May 22-June 21) As the week starts, if you ask your furrends for advice you will have even more luck. Mid-week, you are flighty. Make sure to stop and think before leaping or jumping. You could break something! Thursday and Friday give you plenty of opportunities for making points with furrblings and your human(s). On the weekend, don’t get upset or argue if you don’t get what you want. Monday you get all the attention! Your purrsonal lucky day this week is Monday. You are the star and everything is as it should be!
Cancer (June 22-July 22) As the week begins your brain is in high gear—but be sure to think before you act or speak. If you don’t you could say or do something that gets you into trouble. But you can be irresistibly charming! On Thursday and Friday, take a walk on the wild side. Your energy is boundless! Try something new, purrhaps you CAN leap from the sofa to the chair!  On the weekend, you’ve got the self-confidence to accomplish anything! Your purrsonal lucky day this week is Wednesday. Sing the song of your people and you will get treats!
Leo (July 23-Aug 22) You start the week learning something that changes your mind (purrhaps the sucky monster is NOT scary!) Wednesday you find yourself obsessing over power and glory. A little healthy self-confidence is a good thing, but are you doing things for the right reasons, not  just to show off? Towards the weekend you think of some really great ideas. This weekend and Monday, follow your intuition. Your purrsonal lucky day is, Friday. You get something special!
Virgo (Aug. 23 -Sept. 23) As a continuation from last week, until Thursday, look for chances to expand your outlook, the world is your oyster! Towards the end of the week, challenge an ongoing problem, but make sure you communicate clearly with your furrblings and human(s). You have a terrific weekend! Everything goes exactly the way you want it! You are lucky in everything you do. Your purrsonal lucky day this week is Wednesday, a favorite toy has magically been found!
Libra (Sept. 24 -Oct. 23) As the week begins you may have difficulties with your furrblings and human(s). You need to find the balance between selfishness and selflessness. Midweek, your renowned grace and tact takes center stage. Later in the week, you need to share your love and thoughts with your furrblings and human(s). Share your thoughts, even if it means trying something new. This weekend, keep your head down and stick to the program. Your purrsonal lucky day this week is Sunday. You get an unexpected gift!
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22) At the beginning of the week, you find yourself at odds with your furrblings and human(s). But it is good-natured and spirited. Find a compromise, but fight a good fight. Towards the weekend, be careful. Watch your Ps and Qs, especially if there are any risks! Think carefully before you go all crazy pants! This weekend, surrender control and go with the flow. Your purrsonal lucky day this week is today (Tuesday). You get a surprise that you LOVE!
Sagittarius (Nov. 23 -Dec. 21) At the start of the week you are energetic and get a ton of stuff done! Through Wednesday, your happy go lucky attitude is tested. You need to handle many different demands! Towards the weekend it may feel like you can’t get everything done. On the weekend, follow your mood and don’t let your furrblings or human(s) interfere with your objectives. Your purrsonal lucky day this week is Sunday. You DO get a tasty extra special treat!
Capricorn (Dec 22.- Jan. 20)  At the beginning of the week, family is important, and your creativity climbs! You figure out how to get things done and have fun doing what needs to be done! Towards the weekend, you need to be clear with your human(s) no discussion just cut to the chase. This weekend, could be difficult. Don’t take anything personally. It is them, not you! Your purrsonal lucky day this week is Wednesday. You climb to the top and everyone LOVES you!
Aquarius (Jan. 21 -Feb. 19) At the beginning of the week, your head is filled with fabulishious ideas! You need to put these amazing ideas into action. This continues through to Thursday (purrhaps you are bored with the everyday happenings). On Friday and Saturday, give your human(s) extra loving, if you don’t their neediness might make you irritable and exhausted. Sunday and Monday stick to the routine except add night time zoomies! That will keep you, your furbbings and human(s) on your toes! Your purrsonal lucky day this week is Friday, you get treats and cuddles.

Pisces (Feb. 20-Mar. 20)  At the beginning of the week, you are mysterious and you find mystery everywhere! Through Wednesday, be extra loving. Tell your human(s) how you feel. On Thursday and Friday, you may feel conflicted. Weigh your options carefully (i.e. Should you eat the treat that belongs to your furrbling?) This weekend, YOU are the star and your family is your attentive audience. Your purrsonal lucky day this week is Saturday, after all, you are a STAR!
