2017 is gone but not forgotten. Many are happy to see it go but we have some good memories.
Floki was with us for six months in January and felt right at home getting on top of our china cabinet.
In February Frankie showed everyone his Houdini trick on escaping a cat harness.
Puck was at the vet in March. I think this is when he started peeing outside the box, which he is still doing.
In April we had someone marking their territory on our cars.
In May we had a visit from a tabby mother and her two Siamese kittens.
They were still around in June.
Also in June, Puck was back at the vet.
In July we got our Jackson Galaxy bed that Chris and Floki love . . .
and a water fountain that nobody used.
We got Kitty-Kick-Stix in August.
September we evacuated for Hurricane Irma . . . twice.
We got new furniture in October that Puck peed on before we could use it.
In November we visited Aunt Felice’s cats (and Aunt Felice).
December we got another piece of furniture that Frankie scratched and Puck pooped on.
It also got cold in December and everyone decided to conserve body heat.

My wife is irritated that I am not helping to prepare for New Year’s Eve so I will end here and wish everyone a very happy 2018.
Happy 2018 to you! I hope it is a great year for you.
I think it will be and I hope the same for you.
I hope 2018 brings no stressful days with weather-catastrophes and other bad things… it should be a year with good things… and even if it becomes a boring year, I will be grateful for… ;o) Happy 2018 to you
Thanks. I think one hurricane is enough.
Wow! What a year~! Yep, peeing and pooping out of the litter box and furniture scratching! I guess we all have these little misadventures with our kitty boys and kitty girls, but aren’t they addictive parts of our lives!? None is the same as any other. You can’t get yours to use the new fountain but they love, love, love the Jackson Galaxy cat bed. Mine are the same species, yet they love, love, love their new fountain and refuse to use any of half a dozen cat beds I’ve purchased over the years…. Cats! Happy New Year!
Cats are a blessing and a curse but mostly a blessing.
What a year and those are some amazing stats
Happy Mew Year
Timmy, Dad and Family
Thanks and happy new year to you and your family.
Happy New Year 2018 Charles, Rose, Chris, Frankie, Puck & Floki! 🎉🎆🎇🎊✨
Thanks. I hope you have a wonderful 2018.
Happy New Year! Hopefully, this is the year you can get Puck’s peeing under control.
Thanks. I haven’t made a New Year’s resolution. Perhaps that should be it.
What an eventful year ! Happy Mew Year ! Purrs
Thanks. To you too.
Happy New Year! Great pictures of everyone
Thanks. Happy New Year.
Wishing you all a happy and healthy 2018! Also hope Puck decided to start thinking inside the box.
Lovely resume, Chris 🙂 We loved the Houdini trick and the nobody-drinks-out-of-the-fountain…I had one too and Granny sold it after a few month 😀 Pawkisses for a Happy, Healthy New Year to all of you. Let’s make it a good one 🙂 ❤
I think some cats love those fountains and some cats hate them. There seems to be no middle ground.
Happy New Year 2018. Have you tried hiding pucks litter behind some boxes and furniture, in such a way that he can get there but nobody actually can see the litter? Worked for Fozzie.
Thank you for the suggestion but I tried putting boxes here, there and everywhere. I also try and different types of litter. I even tried putting a box out with no litter at all, just a pee pad in it.
I found yesterday a blog of someone who deals with cat behavioral issues. You would like me to pass the contact to you, so you could check with her? Maybe she has a few ideas.
I am open to any suggestions. Thank you.
Happy New Year, & I might just steal your idea of a review of the year if I am still blogging in December. Although Louis Catorze’s year would read, “January: sat on my arse. February: screamed at a dog. March: sat on my arse …” & so on.
I hope you are still blogging in December but it’s not too late to do one now.
We purray the New Year brings ya’ll health, happiness and tons of luv. big hugs
Dezi and Raena
Thank you and the same for you.
