Hello everyone and welcome to Tabby Tuesday with me, Simon. Of course it’s me Simon and of course it’s Tabby Tuesday, you knew that didn’t you? I wasn’t real sure though because I got preempted by Christmas and New Years, both of which fell on a Tuesday. Well, they really didn’t fall on Tuesday, falls can hurt, but they occurred on Tuesdays. Since I was preempted on two Tuesdays does that mean that I’m empted today? I’ll have to ask Brother Brian about that one.

Anyways, it sure was a fun couple of weeks with all the new things that Santa brought us. I know you’ll find this hard to believe, but I’m still a bit wound up about the whole thing. Even though this was my third Christmas it sure felt like the first one. The first one we were confined to the big bedroom, the second one we came out in mid-holiday. This one was sure fun no matter what number it was.

Oh yes, I’m still hanging out in the Cat Trees and enjoying all things with Catnip too. There were just too many fun things to mention, but I will say the crazy bouncy balls that Santa brought were and still are amazingly fun to chase.

I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday and I’ll be seeing you super soon. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Good to see you on Tabby Tuesday! Let us know what Brian says about that empted thing.

You got me curious so i looked up the origin of “preempted” and the “pre” part is not a prefix, it’s just part of the word. That means there is no such thing as “empted” which is unfortunate as it would be a funny word to use.

Even though we had to wait, it was nice to see your gorgeous face.

Glad Santa Paws was good to you brought you all kinds of goodies. Personally we think that since you got pre-empted on 2 Tuesdays in a row you should get 2 extra turns in a row. We like seeing you.

The holidays are definitely a fun time and I’m glad you enjoyed yours. The new year always brings mixed feelings with parting all the fanfare for another year but purrsonally, I’m glad things are winding down. Oh, Simone, you’re such a silly! I loved your musings about being ’empted’. Do let us know, what brother Brian says on this matter. lol
