Happy Mew Years Eve


Happy Mew Year Tabby Cat Friends
You Bet Miss Fitz. Did you make a resolution?
Yep: I will try to not whap my beau Toby this year
You do give him a bit of a worry sometimes
I can't help it. Rumpy chases him and when I see them going I have to jump in. He needs to grow a pair for 2020
His is neutered my dear
Oh, right. What is your resolution Timmy?
I plan on being a better brofur to you all and nicer kitty to dad
Alright Mr Purrfect. Lets lose these monkey suits and Dance!

I cant wait to see everyone's resolutions
And their hats!
Thanks Gracie, Teddy and Raz for a fun year!
We can't wait to see 2020!

Merry Christmas from Teddy!





Merry Christmas Tabby Cat Club Friends!!



I have to thank Santa for bringing me so many fun toys and treats - he deserves a BIG LONG REST.     Last night when he came to my house I pretended I was asleep under the tree so I could watch him.   He looked and sounded so happy and he was QUICK leaving presents too!   Then I heard him exclaim as he rode out of sight:

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL - AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!   


I won't ever forget it!    

Love, Teddy

Happy Holidays


Merry Christmas from Raz and Noelle

Merry Christmas to all our Tabby Cat Club friends!!!  We hope Santa was good to you!  We know he was to us!!!

Twas The Night Before Christmas



Narrated by Gracie

~TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS~
by Clement Clarke Moore



'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.
 
l~r: Miss Fitz, Einstein, Sammy P., Dezi, Noelle, Timmy Tom Cat, Ducky & Cooper Murphy

 The children were nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of sugar plums danced in their heads.


l-r: Bunty, Prancie Pie & Teddy

And Mama in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap, had just settled our brains for a long winter's nap.


Teddy

When out on the roof there arose such a clatter, I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash, tore open the shutter, and threw up the sash.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow gave the lustre of midday to objects below, when, what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer.

With a little old driver, so lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick. More rapid than eagles, his coursers they came, and he whistled and shouted and called them by name: "Now Dasher! Now Dancer! Now, Prancer and Vixen! On, Comet! On, Cupid! On, Donner and Blitzen! To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall! Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!"

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, when they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky so up to the house-top the coursers they flew, with the sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas too.

Raz

 And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof the prancing and pawing of each little hoof. As I drew in my head and was turning around, down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound.

Raz

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot, and his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot. A bundle of toys he had flung on his back, and he looked like a peddler just opening his pack. 

His eyes--how they twinkled! His dimples, how merry! His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry! His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow, and the beard on his chin was as white as the snow. The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, and the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath. He had a broad face and a little round belly, that shook when he laughed, like a bowl full of jelly.

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf, and I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself. A wink of his eye and a twist of his head soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread. 

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, and filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk. And laying his finger aside of his nose, and giving a nod, up the chimney he rose.



He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle, And away they all flew like the down of a thistle. But I heard him exclaim, 'ere he drove out of sight,

"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

LETTERS TO SANTA




Mom said it was better for us to post a day late (than not at all) and ask for forgiveness.

My Wish List for Santa


Merry Almost Christmas everyone!    Our TCC friend Noelle from Friends Furever is hosting this super fun chance for us to share our WISH LIST FOR SANTA with each other.    I've got mine done and I hope Santa will look kindly on my requests and grant me my wishes!

Here's my List for this year


In case you can't read it, I'm wishing for lots of tuna squeeze-ups, no more nail trimming, no more shots EVER, that I can keep my forever home FOREVER and no more starving and homeless animals in the whole universe.

Am I asking too much?   I hope not.   I tried to be reasonable.   We kitties are always reasonable when it comes to Santa right?    

Thank you Noelle for this fun event you hosted here at the Club.    We hope that you and ALL our TCC friends have a wonderful holiday celebration!

Remember - he's watching!

Hugs, Teddy

December 31 – “New Year’s Eve Party” with your hosts, Gracie, Raz and Teddy (post a photo of you with a party hat OR let us know your New Year’s Resolution in your post)




This year we’re giving our folks Christmas Day off to celebrate with friends and family.   We understand that many of you may have other traditions for the holiday, and celebrate in different ways…..If you’d like to host an event based on YOUR holiday this month, let Gracie know and she will send out a special announcement to everyone for your event.

Featured Tabby  -  We don’t have a Featured Cat for December BUT we would love it if you would step up and be our “Star” for one of the newsletter issues.   Tell us how you came to be with your family, your likes and dislikes, anything you want to share with us including a photo of you.    It’s our way of “Getting To Know You” – even though we are one big family of Tabbies we would love to learn MORE about each other.    Just let Gracie or me (Teddy) know you’d like to be a Featured Tabby and we’ll make it happen.
Special Info about Gracie’s “Twas The Night Before Christmas” event – First of all this is a NEW event that we will do every year from now on.   Gracie will read the story but we’ll add a little “twist”!    How about YOU being part of the story?    Just send Gracie your photo and let her know you’d love to be included and she will make you part of this classic and traditional tale.    GET YOUR PHOTO TO HER NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 18th PLEASE!!!
Next Month – What’s Coming?
Certainly the month of January is a “start over” kind of month.    We begin the year 2020 which almost sounds like science fiction but it’s true.    We hope it’s a super special year ahead for all of us and our human families too.     New Year’s Eve is a traditional time for NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS.    Are you making any?    We hope one of the resolutions you make is to become more active with us are at the Tabby Cat Club.    Gracie invites you to let her know if you’d like to see any changes here or if you have any ideas to make it “THE DESTINATION” for members to visit more regularly.     We Tabbies know how to have a good time and that’s what the Club is all about.
Miscellaneous -  Gracie will be working on the Headers for the Tabby Cat Club and would like to feature TCC members in the Header each month.   Would you like to be a STAR in a TCC Header?   Let Gracie know – send her a photo – and you will be the envy of all the Tabbies reading one of our newsletters. 
*** From Gracie ***
“I want to wish you and your family all the happiness and many blessings for the holidays and into the new year………….!”

Well mum stayed home cuz of her broked ankle, which mean I scored some good eats. Mum bought a pre-roasted duck leg and thigh. Two of them in the package, means another meal in a few days. Plus stuffing, mashed taters and gravy.
 She gave me some of the duck and it was nommy, all nice and juicy. Just the meat, no skin.
 Cheesecake for dessert and I got to lick a bit of the cheesecake. Yum.
Hope you all had a good day with your families and got good eats.

Now this is my FAVORITE kind of bird!    



I am thankful for so many things including the TCC for making me feel so welcome when I joined after Angel Sammy went to the Bridge.    It's fun to be around Tabby friends ANY time of the year but maybe especially when it's Thanksgiving.

Whatever you do - don't eat too much turkey!
Happy Thanksgiving...........
