Happy New Year

The Human had a little (emphasis on little) New Year's Eve gathering last night, as flu felled four of her expected nine guests. This was too bad, especially as it resulted in quite a sizable number of leftover crab cakes. Now, "leftover crab cakes" is very nearly an oxymoron around these parts, and she fixed up three for brunch this morning (in her defense, she'd made them smallish, appetizer- rather than entree-sized). 
And hey, why pour that last half-bottle of perfectly good champagne down the kitchen sink? So what if it was a little flat? It still tasted mighty good with those crab cakes. A couple of tiny rosemary scones rounded out a satisfying first meal of 2013!
You may be asking yourself, "And what did The Kitty get out of all this?" The answer, unfortunately, would be nothing, zero, zip, nada.  For once, however (and I realize this will be shocking), it was not the Human's fault, as she dutifully offered to share the crab cakes, etc. with Yours Truly, who after a perfunctory sniff or two, declined them.
But I digress! The purpose of my post today is to wish all our Friends, Feline and Human alike, the happiest of New Years

P.S. I have petitioned to extend the Post-A-Day agreement I have had with the Human throughout 2012, but thus far the response has been lukewarm. Like Congress, she is having a hard time with commitment.

  1. Spitty, our Mom thinks your human was right on target with that brunch. You choice not to partake, right?

    We hope to see every day posting from you in 2013. Sj=how her your backbone, Spitticakes! And, yeah, did you hear the one about Con and Pro being opposites - Progress vs Congress! We rest our case. Though we personally do not care, the humans are outraged.

  8. he he crab cakes - I've never had them. I think I'll beg M to make some. Crabs live in the sea and are like tuna maybe. Tuna is good stuff. Hey buddy = you and I need to run for Congress -we could make decisions faster than they do!!

  9. Yeah, I couldn't get innerested in those stuffed clams the humans had for Christmas Eve either. BTW, why does your human have white and silver telephone cords in a vase on the table??

  12. What's up with humans not sharing their crab cakes. Mom and dad had them on Christmas Eve and we got not one scrap. Although we were offered turkey as a consolation prize.

    Happy New Year Spitty! Jonesie is hoping for a ride in your fancy car in 2013!

  14. Who cares about crab cakes when there is a purrfectly good centerpiece just waitin to be whapped!

  15. Wethinks that tis a suitable snub to her for inviting people round for a party. And what' with the table decoration ? Surely a little prod of that was needed ?
    As for commitment issues, well, wethinks we shall just have to see about that. Especially after your human's voluminous gushing on my blogpost - for which we are are most grateful. A bit of ego boosting in the morning is just what is needed. but just remember to keep your paws in Kiimamaa and out of the rest of my fine country. Your esteemed buddy, King Kitty Cat of Finland (North)

  16. Hm. If you shunned the crab cakes, Spitty, could they really have been any good? Any time we kitties shun human food containing meat, my human wonders if there is something wrong with it.

    Happy New Year to you, Spitty! I am looking forward to reading your blog EVERY day!

  17. Well Spitty. Did it dawn on you to get the Human to put aside one or even two of those crab cakes for ME? *rolls eyes*

  26. Sitster, dood. We have our doubts about crab cakes too. We don't blame you a bit for declining to partake!

  27. Your mom isn't signing on the dotted line for a post-a-day for 2013? And after you let her eat ALL the crabcakes? MOUSES!

  28. Mum likes your mum's attitude. So what if they are leftovers, enjoy.

    We are bugging our mum to make sure we post more often. The downward trend is not acceptable.

  29. Glogirly thinks champagne for breakfast is a fine idea.
    I think you should hold your mom to the post a day thing. I mean, what else is she gonna do with her time???

  35. Spitty, you were wise to turn down the crab cakes. I, like you, will refuse even the most luxurious of food items if it does not carry the familiar smell of Fancy Feast.
