Yours in New Year’s wishes,

It had to happen sooner or later, what with having five to keep track of and all.
Although in previous years when we had six, it wasn’t a problem! Of course, Chuck was around to help me with the dates thing.
I’m talking about the one year anniversary gotcha day for Hope and Brody, June 10 (2015).
Not only did I overlook mentioning it here in Kittens ‘n Things”, or even in “Mews Nooz”, (until this week), we also didn’t even celebrate!
In fact, I think I didn’t even specifically tell them on June 10 that that was the anniversary day we became a furmily!
Needless to say, I’ve got some ‘splaining to do. Although they do know I am their mom and we have been together for a year now, because I’ve talked about it with them often over the year.
I just missed making a big to do about it on the actual date. Of course, they aren’t loved any less!
Yours in getting Gotcha Days on track,
Earlier this morning, I heard on the radio that today is “Hug Your Cat” Day!
If you’re like me, you really don’t need a “day” to love on your kitty.
Nevertheless, I’m glad to share that bit of information with you – just in case you hadn’t heard it.
So this message is short as I have all these kitties I have to hug. And if you’re like me, you can’t just give one hug.
Yours in hugging on your kitty,

This week, the Kits found out that as recent as March 9, Grumpy Cat had introduced Friskies NEW flavor combinations called Cat Concoctions!
It’s a wet cat food that features flavors that “challenge the mind and flavor buds” of any discerning kitty.
Further, according to the Friskies press release, “The mashup of unexpected flavors includes: Chicken in Creamy Crabby Sauce; Cod in Cheesy Bacon Flavored Sauce; Lamb in Clam Flavored Sauce and Scrumptious Salmon & Chicken Liver Dinner Pate!” Num! Num!
Helping to bring the unexpected Flavor Mashups to life and to the purrblic at a three-day event, March 11-13, Platinum selling recording artist Ryan Cabrera and “American Idol” Season 6 runner-up Blake Lewis, and pop culture phenomenon Grumpy Cat kicked off the party with a completely unexpected musical mashup performance Friday, March 11 in Austin, Texas.
They then held a meet-and-greet with our favorite Grumpy Cat! And we’ve got video of the performances to boot. As soon as we figure out how to get it to you from here, I’ll let you know!
Yours in rockin’ out with Grumpy Cat,
P.S. Let us know your favorite Cat Concoctions!!
Today’s a special day for a very special furriend of kitties and their beans – that’s right, it’s MO.
He keeps the daily linkies up and running for us at The Cat Blogosphere as well as keeps us informed of kitty remembrances, special events and giveaways and contests around “cat nation”. A purrfect way we can stay in touch.
Now it’s his turn! We’re joining in with all the furriends and beans around the Internet to say Happy Special Day, MO.
Yours in thanking MO for all he does,
Yours in kitty love,

If you stopped by yesterday, you know all this week we are sharing Morris the Cat’s insight when it comes to sleeping like a cat He’s our guest blogger and is responding to the sleep deprived Dear Morris style.)
I’ve been experiencing difficulties with falling asleep, tossing and turning once my head hits the pillow. I don’t get it because I feel tired all day at work; then I come home, brush my teeth, flip on the TV, and just… lie there. I’m hoping I can learn from the expert. Morris, what am I doing wrong?
Sleepless in San Fur-nando
Dear Sleepless in San Fur-nando,
Your case, unfortunately, is not at all uncommon. When you’re going all day long at the speed of a cheetah, it’s no wonder your mind darts around like a red laser dot at bedtime. Luckily, as a cat, I spend up to 140 hours per week sleeping and I can tell you there is hope!
For starters, I notice you mentioned turning on the TV before bed. Cats don’t watch TV – this is partly because the majority of us can’t speak English that well, but mostly because it interferes with our snooze time.
Scientifically speaking, the ‘glow’ emitted by an electronic screen enters the brain and slows the release of melatonin, the hormone that helps us sleep. So next time you want to turn on the tube before bed, try counting sheep instead – or better yet, mice!
Yours in enjoying insight from Morris,
P.S. There you have it! After getting a good night’s rest, tune back in tomorrow for the next edition of “Dear Morris”, and don’t forget to check out his Live Well & Prospurr website to enter the giveaway and learn how you can help Morris feed hungry kitties with just the click of a mouse.
P.P.S. Morris the Cat’s publicity reps contacted us about sharing Morris’s new promotion at his Live Well & Prospurr site and his “Sleep Like a Kitty” contest. As a result, they are sending to us a “Happy Kitty Kit” for “The Boys” and Hope.
