Okay, okay, I know it's been a while since you've heard from me.  There's a reason for that, and I'll get to that in a minute.  But before I complain . . . I mean talk . . . about that let me tell you that much has happened at StreetCats in the last few weeks.  For example, the gorgeous Cassie featured in the last Feline Friday post is gone!  Yep, gone to her forever home, just in time for Christmas!  Cats are coming and going so fast I barely meet them and poof, they're gone!  You'd almost think there was a court magician involved!  And I had been considering making Cassie my queen!  It's no wonder I have no court in my kingdom right now!  No one stays long enough to even be considered, much less appointed!

But I digress!  I was going to complain . . . I mean talk . . . about why you haven't heard from me in so long.  Now cats don't hibernate, but we do sleep a lot.  And while recovering from Christmas, we sleep a whole lot!  You get that, right?!  That after Christmas recovery period?  Some of us spend that time putting up our Christmas decorations and getting the house weatherized for the hard winter.  But others of us need several weeks to just sleep.  I mean really, how many of you still haven't put up your Christmas decorations yet?  Come on, raise your hands, it's nothing to be ashamed of!  I'm right there with you!

So this sets the stage for what's happening now.  Picture me sleeping peacefully on my throne or in my hidey hole, pretty much ignoring the daily activities at StreetCats (except eating time) when, wham!  It begins!  They are hauling things in and out of here like crazy, wonderful things that people have donated!  They are having meetings, putting labels on gift bags, making phone calls and talking about food, food, food!  "They" being the humans who like to hang out here.  Now this would be irritating at any time of the year!  But while I'm recovering from Christmases???  Couldn't they at least find a better time for this chaos?!  I mean why not My Furry Leprechaun?  Or My Furry Fire Cracker?!

Yes, it is that time of year again.  We're having My Furry Valentine!  Now this is not my first rodeo, so I wasn't surprised.  But this year our primary fundraiser even actually occurs on Valentine's Day!  Whoopee!  (That's sarcasm, by the way.)  Look what they made me do!
They made me do this and then didn't even put my picture on the invitation!  Something about the expression on my face.  What??!!  This is just what I look like.  Maybe I need to cut off someone's head!

Okay, I have to admit, it's a very nice event . . . a silent auction and appetizer and dessert tasting.  Cats don't like to go to such events, but I've seen pictures of the humans just having a ball there!  And I don't want YOU to miss it!  So here is the invitation again.  If you didn't get one in the mail, consider this your personal invite!  We want to see YOU there!  Bet you'll have fun!
