[Still not sure what VBP is? Check here.]

Dear Furriends,

Today, we have a special announcement regarding the VBP Blog Hop.

On January 17 of this year, Jet, Savannah, and I started a blog hop called VBP – Vocab Building Project (Check above link for more information).

We had lots of fun using new words, and I loved looking for French/English idioms (VBP) that were similar or not and which included the word cat. Unfortunately, life being life, we cannot get the energy needed to continue it right now. So we have decided to stop it, at least momentarily.

I would like to thank all the furriends who collaborated in this project:

Jet and his human, for coming up with the original idea for the blog hop! We’re sending you lots of purrs and hugs!

Savannah and her human, for their perseverance (VBP) and patience, and for posting when we couldn’t. We send you hugs and purrs too!

Miss Ann from Zoolatry for creating all the graphics that you see on this post, as well as the badges. Again, hugs and purrs!

Last but not least, thank you to all the furriends who pawticipated! We hope you had fun in the process. We certainly loved reading your posts! Lots of purrs!

A special shout-out to The Tabbies O Trout Towne for participating to all but 2 of the total of 11 hops! Thank you! Lots of purrs! And salmon!

So, for now, we are closing the VBP dictionary and stopping the hop. But one day maybe…

P.S.: If you had planned a VBP post and plan to post it, please post the link in the comment and I will post a link in a post next week. Thank you furry much for your understanding!

Hiya my dear furriends!

Thank you all so very much for your wishes and for coming to my purrthday pawty! I was – am – both blessed (VBP) and blissful (VBP) to have had you all here!

Here are two more cards that I received. The first one is from Mollie and Alfie:

Thank you guys! This mousie looks very yummy!

And the second one is from my furriend Easy:

Loved, absolutely loved the beret and the baguette!

I am yet to visit each and everyone of you to thank you purrsonally. Sorry to be so late.

But you see, on top of my human having little time, I did need some time to offset (VBP) the effects of nip… I had to nap a little…

And so did Kitshka…

We were exhausted (VBP)!

So we’ll be back to blogging and visiting your bloggies starting tomorrow!

Also something else impawtant: we’ll have an announcement regarding VBP on Thursday. But for now, mum’s the word! (VBP)

Below are the past week’s pawticipants. As always, click on the bluey badge at the bottom of this post to enter your link for this week. And don’t forget to grab the badge! Thanks to everyone!

Hiya everyone!

First of all, the VBP post will be posted exceptionally (VBP) by Kitshka tomorrow.

Now to really impawtant things.

How are you doing today? I’m glad that you came because my human has been preparing some treats for my purrthday just for me and I want to share them with my furriends! That’s you!

First things first: look at the beautiful cards I received from my furriends!

My very good furriend, Sammy!

Thank you Sammy! I love your hat!

My sweetest furriend, Savannah!

It’s an honor to have such a beautiful Ladycat sending me a card!

My human’s mother – the best cat sitter EVER! – sent me this yummy cupcake on Facebook!

purrfect cupcake

Doesn’t it look yummy? I bet it’s tuna!

And I also received chicken from Vincent, one of my Facebook fans!

Oh! I almost forgot: my vet sent me a cool ecard too!

Thank you all so furry much! And thank you to all of you who left wishes on my Facebook profile!

Look what I got!

4 different bags of treats, catnip puffs, a catnip pepper and… a tunnel! I love my catnip pepper already!

The tunnel is amazing! It sounds like crinkly paper and there are lights!

I received my best favorite ever food from Europe, thanks to Janina!

And as a cake, my human wanted to make me a tuna cake BUT since I had received all this wonderful food from France, I had my favorite: Tuna & Shrimps!

There is some for everyone, so help yourself! There are treats too! Go ahead! You can taste them all!

Then we can go play in my new tunnel!

Finally, the human had this weird idea to bake something for your humans too. When she told me what she baked, I was shocked! SHOCKED!

Wanna know what it is?

This could be part of our VBP post… take notes Kitshka.

Okay I tell you…

Cat’s tongues! Yes, in French, des langues de chat!

Have no fear! Those are just biscuits that have the shape of our tongues. Ah! Humans really!

You can throw some to your humans, and let’s have fun!

I want to pawty!

The Human: Texas, it’s the American dream.

Texas: Yes, that’s what I said, the Americat dream. Move over, human! This is my fame here!

Hiya everyone! Today is not Thankful Thursday but it can certainly be – expect a French accent here – Sankful Saturday (Because the French sometimes say “sank you” instead of “thank you”. . . ok whatever!).

So, it’s Thankful Saturday.

Remember back in January when I asked you if you would kindly vote for me in Westchester Magazine’s 2013 Pet of the Year Contest?

You kindly answered and voted for me and I could announce in February that I was among the ten cutest pets (out of 144) of the year in Westchester Magazine.

THANK YOU to all of you who voted for me!
Thank you!

The results of the 2013 Pet Contest is in Westchester Magazine’s April issue.
I am famous.

This is me on the right (don't pay attention to the doggie on the left)

Texas is my brother!

Texas is my brother!

The Human: Well, Texas you are famous in Westchester County, NY.

Texas: human, drop the capital H please. I am a star and you are jealous, that’s it.

The human: No Texas, I am really happy for you!

Texas: Here is the page on Westchester Magazine’s website. Wesley has been chosen as the top pet. My page is here (you can like it if you wish ;-).

Here’s what the humans at the magazine have to say about me:

The Bilingual Blogger
Have you read his blog? Yes, this cat is an ambitious one. When he’s not typing away, you can find Texas snuggled up in the recycling bin, listening to classical music or playing with his sister.

The human: The recycle bin? I wrote “a bag full of other plastic bags we keep for recycling.” That’s not the recycle bin!

Texas: True but… yeah, whatever.

And at the bottom of my page, you can also click to see a video of me (that I have posted below).

The human: oh no, Texas! I’m talking in the video, I hate my accent, you know that!

Texas: I’m famous!

I take a break from my weekly bilingual VBP post to dispatch (VBP) some news.

First, little-no-so-old me is literally (VBP) in the news! Yes I am!

No, not the newspawper! But I’m in a magazine. You know this bundle (VBP) of glossy (VBP) papers the humans (especially female humans) read. Want to know more? Consider visiting me on Saturday (well, yes, today is VBP day, I can’t take all the glory ;-)


Second piece of news is that little-not-so-old me is turning 7 in exactly one week! I don’t feel like I am aging (VBP)! Can you tell this face is almost 7?

Look at this strong body of mine (Hello! Lady Cats!)

Doesn’t this paw look brand new?

Ah! I knew it! So you are all invited to my purrthday next Thursday. Remember, April 4.


Last and least, my human is abandoning me to go to going to the Blog Paws Conference in May. Everything’s booked (VBP) but the transportation. You think there’s still hope she’ll stay with me?
