No, I won’t face the camera

Hello friends,

Have you ever had a camera pointed in your face and you just didn’t feel like it? Well, I have. 0530The other day I was sitting in mom’s room thinking about something sad and mom said, “Toby, look at the camera. Toby. Toby. Kitty, kitty.” She kept saying it in a sing-song voice as if that would move me. It didn’t. 0530aI was sad (and still am) and I wasn’t going to let her have her way.0530b Why was I sad, you ask? My sweetheart, Penny, lost her sister Snowball and while I didn’t know Snowball personally, my heart hurts for Penny and Miss Ellen. I am sad for them and all the other kitties at

I’m sure Lucy, Spooky and Stinky all greeted Snowball at the Bridge and she is healthy and running free again, but that doesn’t make it any less painful for the ones left behind. We here at Toby’s Wrecking Crew pray for Miss Ellen and her kitties that their grief will be eased by love and comfort of God.


Tuxie Tuesday in Shades

Both the Sues are with you today! Mom took a ton of photos with Phoebe’s Traveling Shades so here are some more. 

First up, BobbieSue tentatively looking at the shades…0207a

Then she goes in for a proper sniff. Says “NOPE!” and off she goes!0207b

You can see I am a bit more willing. First a sniff to check them out…0207c

Then, since I’m a ‘pawsy’ kitty, I have to touch them to see if they’re okay.0207d

And before I knew it those glasses were slapped on top of my head!! But I do look good!!0207e


Thanks again, Phoebe for the fun!!!

Christmas Presents!

009We had two presents under the tree this year to unwrap. We have our Secret Santa which I will tell you about tomorrow and we had presents from Miss Ellen (!!  We LOVE Miss Ellen! 


1227b First off, PeggySue got into the package before anybody else did and not only did she mix up some tags but she made off with some of the more ‘fragrant’ presents!!


1227c Here’s the loot! So many wonderful things!!!! We can’t wait to play with the treat ball!!!


1227d PeggySue loved her pretty metallic fish.


1227e BobbieSue says “Thank you” to Millie for the gorgeous silver sparkle mouse. She ran off with it right away and mom had to chase after her to get this picture. She also says thank you for MerryBelle for her catnip toy as well (which, if you remember the small Santa Hat cave? MerryBelle is the right size and she loves it. Now if mom can just get a photo of her in it!)


1227f Simon says “Thank you” to Joanie for his present – but PeggySue mixed up the labels so he’s not sure if it was the stocking or the blue candy but he loves them both!!!


1227g  And I want to say “Thank you” to my Lady Love Penny for my wonderful stuffed moose!!! This isn’t a good photo of it but I will get another one tonight to show how wonderful he is. Mom already told me I can’t tear him up ’cause he’s too cute. 


1227h Miss Ellen sent me some socks, too! What? They’re not my socks? But they have kitties and books on them – OHHHH! They’re moms’! Well they are a little big for me. I guess mom can have them.

1227i Mom says “Thank you” to Miss Ellen for her socks and all out presents. We love you!!!

Tomorrow we’ll share our goodies from our Secret Paw!!! 2016-secret-paws-badge

Simon has a question

Simon has a question he wants to ask but he’s really shy – or at least he says he is. He’s not shy around me! In fact, mom had to separate me and him this weekend and then she had to pull Simon and BobbieSue apart as well! I guess he was nervous and he was taking it out on us. Anyway, this goes out to Joanie of 15andMeowing. (Please say yes – so he will settle down!)03
