HELPING...NOT RELAXING!

I am a helper cat, so instead of relaxing after the holidays, I helped our Mom with the de-decorating!

A FIRST FOR SAWYER!

I am resting up from the holidays by napping in my dad's lap. It's the first time I ever climbed into one of my human's laps for a nap!

Rosie's Holiday Recovery

I am a little tired from the excitement of my first Christmas and playing with my new toy, but I just need a little nap and I will be ready to play some more.

Holiday Aftermath

At last!! 
The busy holiday times are over. 
Decorations and bins are put away.
Our daily schedule is back to normal.
It helped that I could finally catch up on some much needed rest.

I made myself a tent under a new fuzzy blanket.
I slept there for many hours on end.
Mom kept checking in on me to make sure I was breathing.

Happy Aftermath Everyone.

Prancie Forever


Prancie - our "Cover Girl" and featured TCC member for the month of January, has left us for the Bridge.    She left yesterday while being held by her Mom and Dad knowing she had been loved for so many years and feeling their love as she flew away.     Her Mom, Miss Ellen at 15andMeowing won't be blogging for a few days but you can all leave messages of support and love if you want to at their blog http://15andmeowing.com.

I'm sure all our TCC Angels were there to give her a hug when she arrived at the Rainbow Bridge.


Hugs, Teddy

January Newsletter




January 2020


Here we are in the year 2020 – sounds like science fiction doesn’t it?!   Well, it’s a new start in the new year and we hope it will be a “banner year” for the Tabby Cat Club.   We would love to have some new members this year and keep the Club going in the name of FUN FOR TABBIES!


We all made New Year’s Resolutions right?  Now we must keep them.   A new year means a new start……..so let’s do it.

Featured Tabby

Prancie Pilch


Our Featured Tabby is the lovely Prancie from the Pilch family in Massachusetts.  As many of you already know, Prancie showed up on a very cold winter’s night at the Pilch house looking for help and shelter.   The night was SO cold that her ear tips literally froze off – even though she lost the tips of her ears due to frost bite by the time she arrived at the Pilch residence, and now she has rounded ears and is still ADORABLE.   Her Mom, Miss Ellen, is a very talented writer and has written two books about two of her kitties and Prancie is one of them!   It’s about how Prancie went directly to Jesus for help when she arrived at the Pilch house – how?   Well she tucked herself right into the outdoor nativity scene in the Pilch front yard.    She went right to the source of love and light and got her wish.    Now that’s a Christmas story for sure!   Prancie is great at “artwork” – which is what her Mom and Dad call it when she rips newspaper to shreds which she LOVES to do.    She also is famous for taking the phone off the hook which is HER way of asking for a snack!    Prancie is very fond of her human cousin who is nicknamed “The Great One” and her cousin loves to dress Prancie up in outfits including hats….Prancie is VERY patient and allows herself to be a “doll”.
Thanks for being our FEATURED TABBY for January Prancie.    We hear you have a new little sister kitty named Rosie who wants to join the Club.   I’m sure Gracie will help her get started!  If you could introduce yourself at Rosie's place, https://15andmeowing.com/, to make her feel super welcome to the club. 
* * * * * * * *
Would YOU like to be our next FEATURED TABBY?   Just write to Gracie and let her know – send a photo of you AND your “story” for the article and we’ll take it from there!

   
Miscellaneous

Have you thought about being a Host for a “special day” at the Club?   Well, if you’d like to host an event here, let Gracie know………what day – what occasion – what do Tabbies need to do to participate.   We’re always looking for fun so step right up and volunteer to be a host!

That’s it for the January newsletter……………..we hope to see you next month, an exciting new project will be announced – please encourage any Tabbies you know to join our Club.   Write to Gracie and she will get you on the role of the Tabby Cat Club.    The “happening place” to be for tabbies.

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
