Hello, everyone.

Kate the Mum here.
First, we have been ABSOLUTELY overwhelmed by the comfort given to us by the cat blogosphere. It's amazing. I can't imagine that many people showing up at my funeral, except possibly a few creditors making sure I haven't faked it and run away to the South of France. (She's not only merely dead, she's really most sincerely dead.) The Dad and I have spent the past few days remembering our girl, and while we've been sad there's been a lot of laughter as well. Thank you for sharing with us.
The next thing is, we're no longer a mob, strictly speaking. With the forbearance of our kind readers, we will maintain the name. I suspect it won't be too long before there are additions to the family.
Lastly, I have a proposal. Personal experience and creditable reports tell me that kitties LOVE Christmas trees as perches. I suggest that December 17 be used by our gang of bloggers to post photos of kitties in trees. In the spirit of friendship and tolerance that should mark the season, it should be ecumenical. If your kitty nibbles the menorah or sharpens her claws on the Yule log, POST A PHOTO! If your kitty likes to dress up( or at least tolerates being dressed up) POST A PHOTO! See Kukka-Maria and Miles for ideas. The general theme should be 'Holiday Wilfullness'
Toby will post soon. He thinks he's fading rapidly from the new stringent reducing schedule.
Take care and blessings to all.

Oh.... I have a picture of me climbing the tree. Mom didn't like it - don't know why. Anyway, we will try but that is our Mom's b'day so she might not
be willing to help us post.

Purrs... Mia

Poor Toby! Feed the Toby! Fat Brothers in Solidarity! (marches round with little placard).

My mum just made a rude remark that if I ever tried to scale the Christmas tree it would collapse under my weight very quickly. How rude. Maybe the same thing would happen if Toby tried it, heh heh.

Great idea for a holiday theme, though!

Our Mom always puts up such a tiny tree that we cannot even climb it. Maybe Mrs. B can sit on it, he, he.
