It's a beautiful day out here! Last night was the winter solstice and total lunar eclipse. My mom slept through it, or tried to. Because I sure wasn't asleep. I was raising a ruckus ALL NIGHT. Something was definately happening, because my whiskers were tingling. My mom read once that in India, when you can't sleep-- they say it's because there's a cat's moon. All I know is that I was meowing and knocking things over all night trying to get mommy up to play. Maybe it was all the catnip in the air! Last night mom finished stuffing and sewing the catnip toys for the shelter cats. So much catnip even she felt slightly light headed. And I was bananas. BANANAS, I tell you. After spazzing out, I passed out asleep for a while. Actually mom thinks that is why I was so awake later. The truth is though I felt that cat's moon magic coursing through my veins and making my eyes glow and butt wiggle. And I always love to knock things down. There is a special stuffed toy that mom keeps on a shelf. It is a beaver with patches of plush fur missing and fang marks. It belonged to her last cat Spooky, and Spooky used to carry it around like it was a kitten, and lick it and cry over it. Mom used to find it all over the place. Spooky loved her "kitten". It is a very special toy. But I love knocking that beaver off the shelf. Mom has moved it several times, but I keep managing to find it and knock it down. Mom doesn't want to put it away, so she just keeps moving it. Last night I knocked it down again, along with many many other things. Mom puts up little plastic figurines on shelves for the specific purpose of giving me something to knock off with my paw. Sometimes we play a fun game where she keeps putting out little plastic figures in front of me, one by one very fast, and knock them off with my paw as fast as she sets them up. Mom laughs and laughs. It's fun!

Today mom is going to drop off the toys to the no-kill shelter. She is very excited. We'll post a pic later. Hope you had a great winter solstice, my friends!

MOL, you go Toki! Crazy kooky full moon! We couldn't see it at all here in NH, wayyyy too cloudy. But mom has seen one happen before. She once spent a summer night outside watching the whole thing with some friends. Takes a LONG time and she got bored. Full moons give off a lot of energy all by themselves but this just added to it.

Must have been to Moon; we were crazy here too! Mom forgot to watch the moon...too much holiday stuff on her mind I guess.
Purrs, Skylar

Well, I could see that moon, from Bridgeland, but my peeps on earth were not allowed to see it...thick clouds obscured it all night long!
We weren't crazy, though...so maybe for you the nip got it started!
You let your mom sleep tonight...else she will get cranky with you!

Purrs!
