The last few weeks have been a bit eventful …….But amidst the hustle and bustle, I managed to get a costume for Kitty as well as attend a really cool event called Project Purr, an initiative by Berkeley’s Place.
So let’s start with the costume…..
This is Kitty’s first halloween costume and how fitting is it that she chose to be….Supergirl! She is definitely the supergirl in our home!
Doesn’t she look fabulous? I love her stance! She looks like she can take on the world! LOL Kitty was amazingly patient and didn’t put up a fuss when I tried the costume on her. I think she has now come to the realization that she will have to put up with my obsession of trying to make her the most famous cat in Canada! And this includes wearing outfits and posing for photos on a daily basis!
On to Project Purr…. This is an annual event which gathers people to build shelters for feral cats so that the kitties can stay safe and warm over the winter. It is so crucial that these cats have well insulated homes to find refuge in as winters here can get really brutal. If you would like to know more this project and other great events, please visit www.berkeleysplace.com.
Here are the shelters that were built at this event!
There was also a mini marketplace… Some really cute items were available for sale
I purchased some bandannas and catnip toys for Kitty. She absolutely loved them! Here she is having some fun with her new found goodies and rocking her new Halloween bandanna!
You can also find more great photos of Kitty and her new toys over at her Instagram @kittymojito. She now has over 1500 followers from all over the world!
I can’t believe how quickly time is going by… It is almost October!
As much as I love summer, Fall is one of my favourite times of the year.. There is something about the cool, crisp air, the ever changing colours of the leaves that are so beautiful and of course, the boots and sweaters kind of weather! I love sitting outside, wrapped in a blanket, sipping on some hot tea…… !
This fall will be even more exciting for me as I have officially launched my new book ‘Home is where my cat is’. I have had great response to the book and I look forward to selling lots of copies in order to raise funds for Berkeley’s Place and Safe Team Rescue!
If you were wondering how to get your hands on a copy, you can order online at http://www.blurb.com/b/7353558-home-is-where-my-cat-is or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Happy Thanksgiving my beloved readers!
I hope everyone had a wonderful time with loved ones!
Mine was pretty great! And as promised, I wanted to share some of the highlights of my day with you.
Now I didn’t get an opportunity to take a lot of pictures however I did manage to snap a few shots of the food in between all the crazy cooking.
Here is Kitty warming up the turkey platter
Appetizers were Spinach Dip served with crusty bread and Chicken Spring Rolls with Sweet Chili Sauce
A slow cooked Pot Roast with mini potatoes
As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t get to snap a photo when the table was set so here are some photos taken halfway through the meal 🙂
The rest of the meal included a Buttery Root Vege Mash, Spanako Pizza, Apple Cucumber Salad and of course Turkey with Stuffing and Gravy.
For dessert, we had a choice of Raspberry Cake, Pear Galette and Pecan Pie.
Here is my drink station. I dressed up the glasses with twine and a little leaf 🙂
The day was filled with great food and wonderful company!!
Hello October! Hello Fall!
The beginning of a new month always brings me great hope! It is the time that I make my “monthly resolutions”, draft up my ‘get it done before the month is over’ lists and try to prepare myself mentally to get them accomplished.
Thanksgiving is a major to-do this month. I will be having family over so I am looking forward to putting together a budget friendly dinner. Watch this space for photos!
I am also hoping to get a head start on making my Christmas shopping list!
I know, I know! I said the C word but it’s only 2 months away! I prefer to be prepared with a list and a budget than shop frantically at the last minute.
I am also hoping to get things in order to feature the Rescue of the Month. There will be information on how you can support them and share some wonderful stories on the great work they do.
So here’s to a happy and productive October!
