This year some of us had little cat troubles. Some of us had big cat troubles. We have had good and bad, health and illness, loss and plenty. Old dear friends have gone over the bridge and we mourn their loss.
On the human side it has been even tougher. Many have lost much and some have lost all. There is difficulty just getting through any given day.
So now this year is coming to a close. Looking back we know our little family had days that were very difficult. Rumpy had his burn last January. Pops had family and work issues. Our fosters are still looking for forever homes.
With that meowed you could hang many names on the past year. Many would cause eyes to open wide and ears to swivel about. We are just going to say that, for we TomCats, Pops too, it was, well, it was challenging.
Some may think that is too soft a word. Not descriptive of all the anguish and turmoil. Well, maybe so, but, we temper this word with others! Love! Friendship! Caring! Helping! Giving!
The caring and loving friendships we have here with our friends shifts the balance, moves the needle, fills the tank, smooths the wrinkles... Well maybe not that, but, you know.
Whenever we come here we feel it. We wonder at the deep and meaningful emotions we have from our wonderful interactions with those we love. Coming here is plain fun. It gives a spring to the step, a twinkle to the eye, we cannot help but purr and we see Pops smile.
Yes sometimes there is sad news. That is life. The important thing is to keep your eye to the good. Allow the love in and give it freely away. Be kind and do good works to your ability. Let those around you know how you feel and be true to who you are.
You are all truly wonderful and I love you all!
(In a Man-Cat way of course)
Your good friend
Happy New Year from Da-Boyz N Pops!

Great words to live by. Happy New Year from our family to yours!
Well said guys! I've been saying for two days now that I hope next year brings better changes to everyone's lives. Our parents haven't lost much, the business has actually picked up some in the last couple months but their hearts go out to those who have lost.
So, may we all feel, love, peace, friendship and hope in our hearts and our pockets feel prosperous in the coming up year.
Happy New Year boyz.
