 Hello Friends,
 I hope this finds you having a wonderful day! I thought I would start my post with 2 of our fur babies. For those of you who were here in December, we lost a beloved pet and went to an animal shelter and came home with three fur more fur babies. Two of which, we were "foster parents" for, but we adopted them last week.

This first picture is of our kitty Bouncer. He is 6 years old and has been with us that long too. We got him when he was 12 weeks old. He is enjoying having younger cats to play with. With our cat that passed away (Sheba, who was 18 yo) he behaved like an old man and didn't play much, but since getting younger cats in the house, he seems to have recovered his youthfulness.

This is Stewart, one of the cats that we recently adopted from our "foster care." He loves to sit on my lap, but recently has taken to my 9 yo daughter. He will play fetch when we throw those little toy mice around and even bring it back to you to throw again.

Since I was sharing our beloved fur babies, I thought I would share this card I made with the HUMOROUS SENIORS set from I Brake for Stamps. These fun images are also available in individuals too.

Chirs, love that you adopted a little family! Your card is too cute and love that name! I just busted up over many of those names! Keep warm!

LOL!!! What a fun card!!

Cat Spicer said...

You hooked me with the kitty pics and then your card made me smile even more. I have 9 in my fur herd and they totally make our house a home. One of our girls likes to play fetch also. My DH taught her. I told her it wasn't a good idea, he didn't listen. It was cute until she won't stop playing for an hour! He gets tired of throwing the toy. LOL.

Oh goodness Chris this is too funny! I LOVE that image!!! Love the pics of your kitties too! Our kitty plays mouse fetch too.... will do it until he pants from exhaustion... but as he's getting older and fatter he is slowing down some. They sure got good homes and I'm sure they bring you great joy too! Thanks for sharing!

Peggysue said...

My fur baby is a humorous senior too! She is 16+ and quite the talker the last couple of years. She complains about everything!
But, back to your card, I love it. Super color combo and all that layering makes it look so good. Thanks so much for playing along with us at DYSU. Please join us again next week!

You just might make me become a "cat liker" if you keep showing these cute photos! I have been a dog person ever since my cat ate my gerbil the first night I was left to babysit my siblings!

These images are hysterically funny! I can't help at laugh at all of them!
