Happy National Bow Tie Day with Skippy - and an announcement



It is National Bow Tie Day again, one of my favorite holidays because I get to dress up Skippy and take silly photos of him. Skippy has a pretty extensive bow tie collection because I keep a bow tie on him full time. I don't know why I put a bow tie on him the first time, but it is just seems to fit him, and now when I take them off he just looks so silly to me... kinda like when your friend takes off their eye glasses.

Instead of showing off his entire collection again we have an announcement to make.  We are leaving Casa de Gato. Taking our cue from several other great online cat personalities like Waffles, Sauerkraut and Sarah Donner, we are going to be moving. My husband was given a promotion to work in Vermont, so we are moving to be closer to his work. We haven't quite settled on a house yet, we have been looking at them since May and it has been incredibly draining on all of us. It has been 12-14 hour days driving out, looking at five or six houses and not finding anything we both really love. We have been in this house since before Twee was a baby, so we have a LOT to pack up and deal with.. (although interestingly, I've already moved once since starting this blog)


Skippy is loving it because I haven't let my cats into my office in quite some time. There is a very good reason for that..


Skippy thought these were super fun to play with.. I'm currently tempted to just sweep them up and throw them away so I don't have to pack it. Packing has been a bit of a challenge too... if you have ever had a cat and a cardboard box, you know what I am talking about.


We are hoping to make our decision this week. We are going out on another house seeing this week and we really believe we'll have a decision when we are done. Then it will be a big push to finish packing and then there will be the moving, but once there I will be working from home so we are expecting things will be awesome once we are settled; it is just the next few months that are going to be chaos. I am not sure if I will be taking anymore kittens until we are in the new place, but if the move takes a while I probably will as kittens are stress relief for me.

Two sodas we found when we stopped for refreshments while house hunting

So if you have noticed I haven't been as active online, that's why. I'm hopefully going to be back on top of things soon.

Yes, Fleurp, we'll bring you too

  5. Handsome Skippy appears to like his cardboard climbing tower. 😸

    And had no idea Kitty Cocktail was being recreated as a soda. Looks about the right color from childhood memory.
