Party time!


Happy Friday, everyone!

Those of you who got up early to go shopping and are back home can just relax and have a bite to eat.

We brought in extra turkeys, including one each just for Ed and Fat Eric. There are all kinds of napping spots and toys to play with. Lydia is turning into a playful girl so maybe some of you old pros can show her how to play tub hockey. Later on, the girl kitties will get together to discuss proper household management, wardrobe and who is the cutest Red Sox player.

We invited Groucho Marx and his friends to sing a song about Lydia. The video (which belongs to someone else) is here on YouTube. Groucho got the lyrics wrong. It's supposed to "Lydia, oh Lydia, have you met Lydia? Lydia the Calico Kitty."

We also had a hard time keeping Harpo off the ceiling.

Everyone is so kind -- welcoming Lydia to the blogosphere and Toby is glad to meet up with old friends.

Drop by anytime and stay long!
P.S. Mum says there will be seafood later, for those who want.

The Meowers from Missouri said...

we din't get to stay furry long, but it was a fine par-tay! ed appreciated the extra turkey, since dad insisted that we save some of the pieces grandma sent home wif him for mom, so he din't get as much as he wanted at home;-).

we are sure that you an' miss lydia will get along fine. you are the "big brofur" now, an' will get to teach her all the finer points of how to bend beans to your will!!
