One Big Party - Christmas to New Years 2012

Hello My Darlings!

Well, what is a girl to do but simply relax and sleep off the flurry of activity between pre-Christmas, Christmas, pre-New Years Eve and New Year Eve! Hob-knobbing with the elite, a full social calendar, lists, phone calls and communication and chilling with my best friends … all kept my paws hopping!

Let’s PARTEEE! Diva Style!

With a bowl of milk beside me … And viewing my celeb list … Let me think ... now … stretching the Diva brain!

Well, Cat Teddy is helping me with my Lists! What is a Diva to do but enlist the help of friends - such a lot to do and get it just right? "Many Paws make light work" Besides I had to SUPERVISE human activity too! LOL!!!

Canadian Christmas Eve! 

A tourtière is a meat pie originating from Quebec, usually made with minced pork and/or veal, or beef. It’s a traditional part of the Christmas and/or Christmas. Delicious wafts of beef and port drifted into the air to the delight of my guests!

Traditional Christmas pudding — Woo wee "pyrogenics"

Watch out for your tail! My human companion shared with me her stories of her home traditions: The rich pudding is carefully placed in an earthen ware dish. Holly is usually place in centre. A heaping dash of 4-star brandy dressed the pudding in style. A wish is made. The blue flame and brandy mingle for a moment, giving way to lovely aromas of the brandy that linger in the air with memories of Christmas’s before! My whiskers and moon eyes became glazed over.

Cat Teddy and Toulouse responded with a chorus of ‘oh’s and ah’s that filled the room in a symphony of wonder!!  My human remarked (with a twinkle in her eyes.). "You only need a morsel of this delicious pudding as it is so richly topped with cream, of course."
Cat Teddy’s eyes are wide open. Laughing hysterically, she almost lands face first in the cream. Ummm, did she have too much Sherry?!!

Pre-New Years Eve - My FIRST taste of DUCK

The aromas filled the air with gamey textures, not like chicken but something differing.
My whiskers quivered in expectation. It was overwhelming, mouth drooling … Time to plan some strategy to steal!!!  Woo hoo!

This is how you DO IT:

Step 1: Observe your humans -- make sure they have had wine (observe to see if they are slightly tipsy. Watch for the visual clues: glazed over expression, DROOPING eye lids and a general lull in the conversation.

Step 2:  With steely determination, LEAP onto a chair -- attack and run!!

TIPS:  use your body as a shield! Savor the moment and use furniture to block humans from getting your food! It works ALL THE TIME - especially if you give them the 'ROYAL HISS' LOL. Any self respecting Dog or HUMAN will BACK OFF!!

Whiskers quivering in delight! I almost had to have my GLASSES on to focus this close LOL!!

I shall look forward to writing more blogs … I'm actually thinking of setting up an email address where you can write to me. You may actually get some free advice on HOW TO DEAL WITH THOSE HUMANS - And Canine companions … LOL -- Watch this space!

My Darlings - HAPPY NEW YEAR  to all my adoring fans!
