Holidays in Oz


It's Gypsy here: Woo hoo!!! It's finally Christmas! We're so happy that it's finally here and that Mum doesn't have to work for 4 whole days!

The very lovely Zoolatry Human,
Ann, put together some very nice pictures for the Aussie kitty bloggers. Here is a group shot:


Thanks so much to Maggie and Zoey for letting Ann help us all out!
We actually participated in "Christmas in July" at
Purrs'n Snorts and received some very nice early Christmas presents from the kitties at Kazoku Neko, Yuki, Kimiko and Kintaro:

Hey, quit hogging the blog, big brother! Here is some photos of me, Tasha, with the lovely things that Yuki, Kimiko and Kintaro sent us:



It's been lovely weather here today, and we enjoyed relaxing in the garden today!

On a more serious note, we're also sending out special holiday purrs to some missing kitties and their families:



Frodo escaped last week and hasn't been home since. It's very cold where he lives and his family are very worried about him.

Jeter Harris has been spending time outside since his new brother Joba moved in, and was last seen on Sunday. It's also been very cold where Jeter lives, and his Mom especially is worried about him.

Please drop by to visit the other Oz kitties to see a little more about the Holiday season downunder:

Gosh you are lucky it is summer down under! Thank you for purrrring for our sweet handsome Buddy to come back. Guess what? It worked! Mommy came home from Church tonight and saw a shadow move across the courtyard with a tail attached. She ran out on the patio and called his name and he came closer and seemed happy to see her. We are so glad he is alright. It is bitter cold right now here and we look forward to spring coming.
Love Miss Peach
