feline friday kiki maxwell 12222023

We’re all in a reflective mood here today.  This would have been Angel Brian’s Gotcha Day and this is the first Christmas without him in forever.  He was our Mr. Christmas and he loved this holiday so much.  We miss you Brian and thanks for watching over us. 

We’re joining in on Feline Friday hosted by Messy Mimi’s Meanderings and it is simple to join. All you have to do is: Post a picture, drawing, cartoon or video of a cat (They may be silly or cute).

Hey Pet Bloggers, don’t forget to leave your daily link over at The Cat Blogosphere for a chance to grab an entry for the end of the month drawing.  Okay, that’s it for now!  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

We will always ALWAYS remember dear Angel Brian and we know how hard it will be to have this FIRST Christmas without him. He is, however, right there with you and always will be. The best gift you could give him for his Gotcha Day is to enjoy thinking of him and having a happy holiday knowing he’s watching over you all!

Love, Teddy and Mom Pam

Hugs to you all as you remember dear Brian.

Lots of hugs to all. Yesterday was Derry’s adoption day anniversary and it was harder than I thought it would be. So I understand and am sending love and Light. ❤️

I was remembering Angel Brian’s story of his Gotcha Day as soon as I saw your bloggy come up in my mail. Mom was always touched by his story and never forgot it. Mom and I miss him very much.

This is Stitch’s first Christmas and I put the tree up about 3pm and just over 2 hours later it is still standing!


Sorry that it might be a difficult Christmas for you guys this year. The first Christmas without a loved one is always hard. Especially as Brian was Mr. Christmas!. Thoughts are with you and happy holidays!

Thank you for linking up with Feline Friday, and my apologies the post didn’t post properly. My computer wasn’t playing nice on Thursday.

Your cat tree doesn’t reflect on you as well as the Christmas tree will. I hope you find your way back there by tomorrow night at the latest. It would be a shame to miss Santa. In the meantime have some good naps.
