Christmas cards for cats ....

Sweet little Ayla keeping Ralph company (Ralph is Canadian he travelled through our dodgy postal system to visit his British friends) .. I think he is staying .. he likes the company ?
Ralph has a twin who lives with me .. that is how it all started actually .. a certain some one saw this "Home Sense" beauty in my pictures and had to have one herself !
Hugo keeping Ralph company as well ...


I have a nutter for a friend in the UK .. she always finds the best cards .. for birthdays and all the other occasions .. there is always some touch of humour from her in some fashion.
I love that my girls .. Sophie and Emma get their own Christmas card from Ayla (a real life cat) and "Ralph" .. a plastered cat (I'm not talkin' booze here folks .. just every day plaster) his name is Ralph because that is what I told her when I sent him .. Ralph has another friend named Hugo who visits him on his bench .. UK cats are very friendly to Canadian cats relocated to the UK ..
As for the Deer Whoppsies .. I'm not shocked .. since I think at one time I might have sent either Moose or Beaver things over there .. or do I think I did ? .. it is all very familar though some how.
In any case .. this post was for the cats that get along together and send cards .. how cool can a cat or two get ?

The deer whoopsies remind me of something funny. We knew a woman whose husband made little sculptures of animals and people from deer and moose droppings!! Seriously. I think he varnished them or something when he was done. What a hobby :)

Joy, Your friend sounds wonderful...too bad she is so far away! One of my dearest and oldest friends lives in Hong Kong...very far away!

You must meet my plaster cat...he has lived with me for 30+ years and before me, with my old college roommate...he's pitted from rain, sleet and snow! But he is quite the character!

Gail .. what is your plaster cat's name ? .. don't tell me he has been nameless for all of those years girl ! .. yes .. good friends always seem to be far away no matter the actual distance ? .. Maybe you can name him Brad "Pitt" ? .. brain cells just misfired ? LOL

Amy .. I have heard of that before as well ! Some people have very strange hobbies don't they ? can you imagine us doing THAT ?? LOL

Dear Spike and Sluggo .. We (Sophie and Emma) appreciate the hellos boys, right back attcha' .. come on over some time and join the party ? giggle giggle snort ! : )

Love the card!!! Maybe someone will send one to our Athena, Linus, Layla, Marley, Simon and Dixie this year! Meanwhile, they all send greetings of the season to Sophie and Emma and are trying not to be jealous. My best friend lives in the United Arab Emirates, so I know what you (and other commentors) mean about long-distance friendships! Thank God for the internet!

GardenJoy4Me said...

'ben" yes !! many yeses ? to the internet that keep us all connected .. I am very grateful for that ! .. Sophie and Emma send many friendly head bonks and greetings to Athena,Linus,Layla,Marley,Simon and Dixie as well ^..^ ^..^

Joy, I was a little confused when I first saw this--Ayla? Hugo? Where has Joy been hiding them? Ah, but now I understand...Nothing strange here--I receive cards from my granddogs all the time. And Toby the cat sends greetings to Sophie and Emma, too.

The cat photos are priceless. Why won't my angels ever pose so sweetly?

GardenJoy4Me said...

Nola .. take heart girl ... they will some time just by the odds alone ? LOL .. they really do love that bit of attention, but it has to be "when they want it" ? : )

Rose ! how is the visit going or had gone .. my sense of time is the "outer limits" problem thingy. It has been the first time I featured Ayla, my friends cat .. Hugo her neighbor's cat and Ralph the Canadian plaster cat .. who loves to travel. I think that is great your grand dogs remember to send you cards girl : )
Toby is a fine looking gentleman .. I think my girls are SMITTEN ! LOL
