Happy New Year! Paws Crossed for '21

Hola kitties! How many of you are sad to see 2020 end? Let's see a show of paws. Not many of you; not any of you as a matter of fact. 2020: don't let the door hit you on the way out. I have my paws crossed that '21 will be better. There's a vaccine and a new administration happening so that's something positive. Pop has talked about getting new sisal legs for my Tower of Power. I'll believe it when I see it. Hopefully by my Gotcha Day. It's a new year, so I'm just gonna get down to business.

Friendly Fill-ins

Now it's time to join the Friendly Fill-Ins, a weekly feature held at this time, which is already in progress. Our hosts—15andmeowing and Four Legged Furballs—need no innerductions as they are giants in the cat blogging world. They think up the fill-ins and I fill in the answers. My answers are underlined and in italics. This week my image, which I actually "posed for" in 2013, relates to all the fill-ins. 

Happy New Year! Paws Crossed for '21

1. My focus word for 2021 is Present. Present and Thrive. Bite and Scratch. There is no one magic word of the year. Last year my focus word was supercalifragilisticexpialidocious and you saw what happened to last year. I intend to focus in the present; the here and now and thrive as a Cat.

2. I didn't get to change the world this year, but I hope to in 2021. This little ghetto kitteh intends to be a spokescat for the cats without a voice. No cat will go wanting. I'll advocate to make stricter penalties for those abusing animals, especially cats.

3. The year 2020 taught me humans wear muzzles. I would have never thought my peeps wore muzzles but they put on their muzzles whenever they leave the condo—even when they to down the hall to throw the trash down the chute.

4. Surviving is one of my biggest goals for 2021. If 2020 taught us anything it's uncertainly. Survival of the fittest—or, more appropriately, survival of the brightest and smartest. Wearing a muzzle and not going to super spreaders is common sense and humans don't have to be rocket scientists to do it. This whole stupid thing would have been over months ago had humans used their brains. Use your brains, humans, get vaccinated!

Caturday Art

I used water colors for my New Year's art. I guess I did a sloppy job on the fireworks and my signature so I made a puzzle gift with the original art template.

Caturday Art is hosted by the lovely Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty and her mum to showcase the latest art by anipal artists using the many different digital apps, Photoshop or original art.

  1. Muzzle-wearing humans- I like that. I sure could think of a handful of humans I'd really like to see muzzled (sorry, that's dad). Anyhoo, here's hoping for a brighter coming year than this past one. Happy New Year!!

  12. Happy New Year CK! One good thing came out of 2020, they passed a federal law against animal abuse, and the current Prez signed it, yeah, I was shocked too. But that is one step towards your goal, now if we can get them to enforce it, who knows what good can happen.

  16. A muzzle... Mom thought you were going to talk about having to not talk when going out amongst the deniers. Here's hoping we all have a much better 2021.

  17. We had a great time reading your blog today We love your Happy New Year graphic, it's great! And that line about "Don't Let the Door Hit You On the 'way Out is hilarious. We enjoyed your fill-ins, which we always do, and now we agree that humans with muzzles look ridiculous. We are just glad we cats don't have to get vaccinated. Wishing you the happiest of years ahead.

  21. Mommy has to wait until her Doctor says it's OK (she promised him she would) but as soon as he gives the green light and it's available to her she plans to get vaccinated. Especially as so many people down here still say it's a hoax and no big deal and refuse to wear mask. Winn-Dixie has made it super easy for everyone as they sent out an email saying it would be FREE to their customers as soon as it was available. Living your life in the present is good advice to everyone Tomorrow isn't promised Yesterday is history and Today is a Gift.

  25. "Survival of the brightest and smartest" - sad but true. We've seen a lot of the opposite this past week. I hope the rest of 2021 gets better.
