I’m liking this perch – BobbieSue is usually up here, but I think she’s softening on me a bit and not running me off.
Oops! Here she comes! I better scram!!!
Here’s a recent picture of MerryBelle. She’s a tabby tuxie so she counts for Tusie Tuesday! She’s really weird – she sleeps on mom’s bed but won’t let mom touch her. Maybe one day she’ll learn to love the kind touch of mom.
Before we go, we want to say a fond farewell to our friend, Fiona, over at The Cat on My Head. She went to the Rainbow Bridge last Thursday after a long and valiant battle with CKD. We will miss her beautiful grey face. (Grey cats have been a long time favorite of mom’s family.)
BobbieSue reporting for WTWC News!
I have a special report about a new museum that has opened in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. It’s called Civil War Tails and is “possibly America’s most whimsical war museum.” (Karen Heller, The Washington-Post Weekly).
Rebecca and Ruth Brown, 32-year-old twins, have recreated various battles of the Civil War using clay sculpted into cat soldiers!
The sisters bought a historic house, The Homestead – built in 1869, and established their Diorama museum there. The museum was born of a love of making cat figures and of Civil War history.
Everything is handmade and on a 1:1 scale.
The trees are made of twigs and reindeer moss, each individually glued.
They have made thousands of cats as well as anything a soldier needs for battle – horses, cannons, rifles, tents – all hand made! Please go HERE to see the large size of one of the diorama’s – it’s humongous!!!

We haven’t been to the museum, but it is on our list of places to visit!!!
I hope you enjoyed my report – I’ll be back again with more cat/animal news!!
Purrs and Prayers for
Nellie (Nellie On The Edge) for her beloved Merlin Wilde (CatWisdom101.com) who has moved on into the light. We pray also for Merlin’s family who are left with broken hearts.
The family of Daddy Cat (Jacqueline’s Cat House), who has also moved on across the Rainbow Bridge.
So mom finally got PeggySue in the house! Mom spent a lot of time getting to know her, talking to her and eventually petting her. She picked her up a couple of times and put her back down and so forth. turns out PeggySue is very friendly and affectionate!
Here’s a couple of pictures of her – sorry for the graininess – mom didn’t want to freak her out on her first night by sticking a camera in her face (like she does to me all the time!)
When she first came in I boldly walked over to PeggySue (I tower over her) gave her the once-over sniff, tail-flick, and walked away. As long as she stays out of my way and doesn’t take MY mom’s affection away from ME, I suppose she can stay. Mom is hoping she will help tame the notoriously camera/mom/the-rest-of-us-except-BobbieSue shy MerryBelle. She’s still around – she’s just not friendly to the rest of us.

It’s Sunday Selfie Day!!!Nice back of the head shot, isn’t it? Mom and I were sitting with my Granmama in the living room. She came over after picking up Frankie from the crematory. I wasn’t ready for selfies or to see Frankie.
Well, maybe I’ll just take a peek. He’s in a nice carved box. I won’t show him to you because I’m sure he wants efurrybody to remember him as he was – a stylish man-cat in a smart tuxedo.
Frankie, I love you and miss you already but am happy to know you are with your mom and brothers – but we are hoping brother Moose will stay with us for a whole lot longer!
Here’s my proper Sunday Selfie!
Tomorrow is National Lucky Penny Day! Can you guess who I have a surprise for??? Could it be my LadyLove?

Frankie crossed the Rainbow Bridge last night. From August 2000 to May 20, 2016 we were blessed to have wonderful and loving Frankie in our lives. He was one of my first playmates when I moved into mom’s and granmama’s home. He taught me how to be a man-cat and was a joy to know.
We remember him in love and thank all of our friends for purring and praying for him during his final days.
With fond remembrance and love,
