Hi everyone it’s Millie & Walter here. Today we are honoring our second Mayor Emeritus of Blogville, Miss Madi, by sharing our boxes with her. If you know any cat you know how they love boxes. We looked around our house and came up with the perfect box for Madi.

Millie Walter - with box for Madi

We think this box says it all about Miss Madi. Even though we have never met her in the furs we bet she is soft and we know from her blog she sure is a crafty cat.

Millie - sniffing boxMiss Madi will love this box. It is very roomy and she can easily hide in there for hours of enjoyment.

Walter checking inside boxIf you want Miss Madi we can even add some holes for you to look out.

Soft and Crafty Box detailsWe wanted to give you a close up of the box so you all can see what it says. We think many of those check boxes fit our Madi well. We know she has “superior resiliency”, we have seen that her furs have a “smooth consistency” and we know you are “unconditionally guaranteed” to have a good time when you visit her blog.

Sarge is hosting Madi’s Box Bash at his blog so be sure to hop on over there to see all the other boxes people have given to Madi. Thanks again Miss Madi for your great work as our Mayor for the past two years.

P.S. We apologize to all our readers that receive our post in an email for the empty post you received earlier. That’s what happens when your secretary starts to work on a post, schedules it to post, and then never comes back to work on it. Sorry Sarge but our mom deleted that first post and unfortunately your comment with it.

Hi everyone it’s Walter here. We are well into 2015 but I wanted to let you know how our final Christmas Card count for 2014 turned out.

Official Christmas Card Picture for 2014

We sure ended the year with lots of cards. You all did a great job in filling up our wall. Thanks for everyone that sent us one either through snail mail or by e-card. We printed all of those out too. So here are the final totals:

Millie & Walter

42 Snail Mail cards

22 e-cards

Total Card Count – 64

Mom & Dad

14 8

Final card count board

Mom keeps a white board with the current tally on it. The parents got a few more legitimate cards since my last report but dad tried to slip a couple of totally bogus ones in. Let me show you what I mean.

Exhibit A - New Year's Card from Driveway Sealer?

Exhibit A – New Year’s Card from Driveway Sealer?

Seriously?! First it is a New Year’s card which isn’t really a bad thing (we know some of our Blogville friends did send us New Year cards), but this one is from the guys that seal our driveway. Like we said before, cards from businesses don’t count. This last one was a real stretch.

What The Heck?!!!

Exhibit B – What The Heck?!!!

Dad tried to doctor this junk mail from American Express into a Holi-Day card. What the Heck?!!! Come on dad you really are taking this a bit too far. Millie and I just shook our heads and walked away and then made sure this so called card ended up where it belonged…in the trash!

Thanks to everyone for sending us your stamps. We have heard from a few of you that some are still on their way. If you need our mailing address just ask in the comments.

Mom wanted to let everyone know that if you want to save stamps all year you can send them to us whenever you feel you have a big pile and don’t want them around any more. That is how we got the picture of the stamps below. Those were all the stamps we collected during the past year after we sent our Christmas stamps in. We are going to make a new tab at the top of this page with all the information soon.

Thanks again to everyone that sent us a Christmas card this year and for all those stamps.

Millie - happy girl


Hi everyone! It’s Millie here to tell you about an award I received a couple of days ago.

The Opposites Attract Award

The Opposites Attract Award


The very studly Vidock from the Poupounette gang over in France gave me the Opposites Attract Award. Now if you don’t know Vidock and his family you should hop over for a visit. Just to prove how opposite we are I borrowed a couple of pictures of Vidock from their blog (I hope his mom doesn’t mind).



See what I mean? Not only is Vidock an opposite by being a boy but as you can see he is also a horse. He is a very handsome Percheron stallion to be specific.

I would love to kiss his snip!

I would love to kiss his snip!

For a stallion he sure is a gentleman and loves to give kisses to anyone willing to pucker up.

I like this award since there aren’t very many rules. So now all I have to do is pass this award on to some other bloggers. I have decided to use a wide range of descriptions for my “opposites”. First up is our esteemed Mayor Miss Madi. We may be similar because we are both girls but she is a CAT and I am a dog but I think she is a really cool cat!

Next up on my opposite list is Coccolino the Mini Pet Pig. This cute little guy actually lives near me, but we have never met. How cool would it be to meet a little pig?

Last on my list is Nim from the Quilting Doberman. He lives in the Pacific Northwest with his mom and two cats. I think he is pretty cute too {{blushes}}.

Now for my big announcement!

Tomorrow is going to be a big day around here. Not only is it my First Gotcha Day but it is also Walter’s First Birthday!!!! So be sure to come back tomorrow for a big HUGE party! You are all invited to come by and help us celebrate.
