Have a Meowy Holiday Anyway the Force Flows


A bit of holiday entertainment to tide you over until Jan. 8. Yup, I’m taking advantage of the holidays to do nothing but write over the next few weeks with a break here and there for feasting. I’ll still be around on Twitter and FB.

Meowy Christmas from me, Kayla, and Nini!

[I chanced grave injury for these photos]



I ran across this on Twitter a few weeks ago. It’s so awesome, I keep watching it.

You all have a safe and peaceful holiday season filled with love and joy. May you hit the best sellers charts in 2014. :)

    Have a wonderful Christmas, Mary! And that is one unhappy cat…

    Our cats would never tolerate those antlers, although I would love to try.

    Have a Merry Christmas!

    I absolutely LOVE these photos. I’m impressed with your courage in taking them LOL.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, HU, and the kitties, Mary.

    I have treats, I’ve been forgiven Hilary

    Happy Holidays, Heather!

    You too, Alex.

    Husband Unit risked his life by holding Nini, Diane. lol

    Isn’t it awesome, River? I just love it.

    Thank you, Julie. I hope it takes a upturn.

    That’s the difference between cats and dogs. Dogs look happy when they have costumes on. Cats never do. Great job though.

    OMGoodness, it does look like you chanced grave injury! I hope you get lots of writing done and that you have an awesome holiday!

    Oh my goodness, your cats! I saw the cat costumes at the store and seriously considered one, but figured my cat, Cleo, would give me those exact looks. They did have a sparkly red bowtie I’m still pondering. She’s a pure black cat. I think she’d look spectacular.

    Beautiful cats, btw, and enjoy your writing time.

    The cat pics are pretty amusing (especially for a dog person).

    Thanks for the entertainment!!!

    I’m going to show everybody that video now. But first, I need to watch it again.

    Cats always want to be themselves, Maurice. Dogs want to please.

    Well, my PC is in pieces, Kimberly, so not much writing is getting done.

    If you only get looks, Shannon, you’re doing OK. A friend of mine’s cat used to love dressing up. He roamed around the neighborhood in a leather jacket. lol

    Love that video, Rusty.

    Happy Holidays, Brinda!

    Congrats to you, Jay Noel!

    Hope you have a great holiday season.!
    Talk about a grumpy cat…

    We have four cats. One would be easy to put that stuff on, one would look grumpy afterwards and the other two would fight it to the death. Probably ours!

    Love it! Merry Christmas.

    I applaud your bravery in even attempting to dress a cat! I’ve been trying to get some writing done over the holiday season as well. Hope it’s productive for you, and I wish you and yours a merry Christmas and Happy New Year! :-)

    Seriously? Treating a cat like a dog? You did risk bodily injury! Hope you get a lot of writing done. (Hopefully your computer issues are all cleared up! I read facebook on mu iPod, but it’s sooo old and slow, commenting from it is a total pain…so I cringed as I read and felt the pain with you!)

    Lol… if you stop by my post you’ll see a similar picture of Bobby wearing his Christmas ‘hat’ :P

    I loved the vid too!

    Have a super Christmas and lucky 2014 Mary !

    I’m amazed you survived taking that first picture without severe bodily harm. The look in kitty’s eyes says, “Just wait.”

    Have a great holiday break. See you in 2014.

    Given the looks those two kitties gave you, I’m wondering if you’re even still alive. :-P

  22. December 27, 2013    

    Aww how awesome! Love the pics and the video!

    Have a happy new year :D

    I can tell those cats are plotting their revenge. Better watch your back…

    Wishing you, your family (and your cats) a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2014!
