Thankful Thursday

We've had quite a flurry of activity and entertaining over the last few days and we're all very thankful that it's over!

We had family over for Christmas and then Mommy had a party with friends and lots of liquid nip on Monday. You can see the dirty glasses and bottles in the background if you enlarge the photo. Mommy had so much liquid nip that she passed out before cleaning!



Delilah and Bella are the social butterflies in our family. They were both out full force being cute and flitting around for rubs and praise.

Delilah is exhausted...



And Bella was rubbed so much that her fur got all messed up!



Sweet Pea and I aren't as sociable as the other two, so we stayed away from everyone for most of the evening. It's much quieter under here!



I hope you all had a great holiday!

Samson

It is hard to be a real party animal!

Cory said...

That's so funny to see who the party animals are. In my house, my momma Ellie, Bennette and I are right there for all the pets and attention we can get. Momma even dropped her soccer ball near our guests dinner plate for extra attention.

So did Sweet Pea and Samson get some quality time together?

Ain't no party like a TORTIE party! (and of course a tuxie party, sorry Sampson)

Mr Puddy said...

Your mom, Delilah and Bella are legend : )

My mom is not totally social but she can handle NIP Liquid very well.

Me !.. I can do social on my street or specific house. But when it come to party in my house I totally run away : ) No second thought !!!

Karen Jo said...

It sounds like you had great fun at your house. I bet the peace and quiet feel good now, though.

Cat with a Garden said...

We never had a party in our apartment because it's tiny. Mom would love to know how we'd react though. How cool that Bella enjoyed so much attention!

Kea said...

Wow, that was quite a party! Happy New Year to you all!

Marg said...

Good for Mommy for having such a good time. We are surprised that Bella was the bell of the ball. Samson, thanks for letting us know how you are doing. We are glad you are better. Take care.

Old Kitty said...

I really sympathize with your Mom. We entertained three times over Christmas week. It sure is exhausting. She probably needed that liquid nip just to survive it all!

And good for Delilah and Bella that they are so social. I'm surprised about Bella, but think it's wonderful that she has gained so much confidence.

At least Samson and Sweet Pea had each other to commiserate with. It's no fun being anti-social all by yourself.

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

What great pictures!!! Those tummehs need snorgling!

The Island Cats said...

Sometimes it's better to watch all the partying from afar, Samson. Glad you all had a great holiday!!

Hannah and Lucy said...

In our home Hannah is the real party girl but Lucy would be found somewhere quiet.
It sounds as thought your mom likes a party too!!
Luv Hannah & Lucy xx xx

Brian said...

Actually most of us here are pretty social when company comes...although my Dad says we are just nosey. Y'all have a calm and quiet day!!!

Sammy and Andy said...

YAY, we're so happy to hear that Deli and Bella are social butterlies.....cuz we're sure you know by now, that us boys have gigantic crushes on both of them.

We love you also, Samson and Sweepy, but our crushes are on Deli and Bella :) (Sweepy is much too young for us senior mancats....sigh.....)

We wish all of you the very best year ever in 2011.....and please always remember, we love ALL of you.

Delilah looks like she might have got some nip too! We're happy to hear that Bella is a social butterfly now! Yay! Isabella is the butterfly in our family but I prefer to be like you and Sweet Pea and watch from a quieter place. Glad everyone had a great time though!
