Monday Meowsie News…What a Treat!


I have a few things I think you are going to want to see today.  First and foremost…let me tell you what a time I gave Mom and Dad with my snail mail Holiday Cards!! (this little Holiday photo of me is courtesy of my BFGF (best feline girl furriend) Cathy Keisha…cute, huh?)


Well…actually…it was all Mom’s fault you see…she signed me up for not ONE but TWO Holiday card exchange lists!!…heh…heh…we never knew that the woofies and kitties have SEPARATE lists!! YIKES!!!

So you can bet that Zazzle card shop made some green papers from us this year…the best part is though…I am getting to know like a TON of new woofie and even some kitty furriends…pawsome I tell you, simply pawsome…I have also been receiving some beautiful ecards and so I hope you enjoy viewing them in this slideshow…(you can click to bigify)

Now let me tell you something I learned from one of my new woofie furriends…Freedom, Nikki, Casper…all retired Greyhounds and their feline furramily member 17 year old Twinkie.  There is a place you can make all your used postage stamps give back again…here is what Miss Lori  wrote in the card I received from What Remains Now

“Wondering what to do with all those stamps on the Holiday Cards you receive??…send them to me, Miss Lori Lohymeyer.  I collect the used postage for a friend in the UK who writes the blog Graceful Greyhounds…she collects them for the retired Greyhound Trust.  Just collect all those used postage stamps, all year if you want, and send it to me and I will send it to my friend in the UK.”

If you are willing to do this, just send Mom Linda an email and she will send you Miss Lori’s mailing address in Indianna.  lcrodgers at sbcglobal dot net. I don’t wanna put Miss Lori’s personal address in a very public blog post. We have been saving them like crazy and will send them off to Miss Lori after January 1…then once every 4-6 months.  What an easy way to help care for retired Greyhounds.  I stole a photo of one of her Greyhounds resting up after all that running career…*giggle*…isn’t she sweet?!

I have been visiting like a crazy cat since Friday…I still have lots more to catch up on…but I figure I visited about 50 or more furriends and made sure to read the last 3 posts as much as I could…you guys have ALL been so busy!! And what fun it is to see you again…if you haven’t seen me in your comments the last 3 days…tag me my comments and I will be right over!!! PURROMISE!

Paw Pats, Savannah

    Our Mommy did not sign us up for any email lists of cards this year. we did send out snail mail cards a few years back, but then last year we decided to donate the money we would has spent on cards and stamps to the local shelter. We gived them money again this year. When Mommy went to gives them the money, they had 76 cats!!!!

Savvy you look fab in your cardie 🙂 and what lovely cards you have received also 🙂 oh boy your poor mum and the great card mixup…sounds like a tv show!! we also received the lovely card from the beautiful greyhound sweethearts..we are saving our stamps also..our old vet had two retired greyhounds and said they made the best pups and were actually quite lazy..happy with a walk and a play then chill time…they are treated very poorly greyhounds during and after their hard work for humans ..grrrrr so a worthy cause all year round indeed 🙂 we will be sending ours off in January also..i assume any stamps are welcomed 🙂 hugs to you Savvy and I hope mums tongue is ok after licking all those stamps 😉 loves Fozziemum xx

  26. Hi Savvy! You’ve been busy haven’t you?! I think CK did a nice job of “Santafying” you in that holiday portrait photo! Do you and Sage have your stockings hung up ready for Santa Paws????

    Holiday Hugs, Sammy

  27. You look thrilled in your Christmas picture, S. is that your happy-face? My happy face is very similar…. That greyhound is gorgeous!

    Love and licks,

  28. That’s a great idea to save stamps for the greyhounds, though don’t think I’ll send mine to Indiana so that they can come back to the UK MOL!!! It’s a good idea to put your e-cards into a slide show! Why didn’t we think of that *glares at Mum*!

    Have a great week Ms Savvy Do xoxox

  29. Savvy you look pawesome in your Christmas hat! Have a great day!
