Chat Fou 2020

Happy New Year! And what joy it is to bid adieu to the lopsided unevenness of 2019 and to glide into the delightful roundness that is 2020. Not since 2012 have we had a number which is utterly sublime to look at and even better to say.

Cat Daddy and I cannot wait to see what this year will bring, and we are looking forward to the following events in particular:

1. A number of landmark birthdays among our family and friends, ranging from 40 to 80.

2. Louis Catorze’s 10th birthday in April (and, yes, we know that he neither looks his age nor acts it). Cat Daddy thinks he has vetoed any type of birthday celebration but I have A Plan.

3. Hallowe’en aka La Fête des Chats Noirs taking place on a Saturday AND on a full moon.

4. Lots more knitting, including a scarf for myself that Cat Daddy has nicknamed “The Special One” because it’s going to be made of MERINO wool – geddit? (Football fans will understand. Anyone else will wonder what on earth I am talking about.) The scarf doesn’t even exist yet, but I bet Catorze has already planned how he’s going to trash it.

Don’t worry, we have started stockpiling holy water and Valium for numéro 3 and the chaos that will ensue. Come to think of it, we may also need them for numéro 2 and numéro 4.

Anyway, thank you so much for supporting Sa Maj and Le Blog, and we wish you a happy and prosperous New Year.

    1. Bonne Année! I am sure the new year will bring antics galore. Catorze may be an old man but there’s plenty of naughtiness in him. 😊

      1. We have had 2 black cats. The first was a lady cat although she was no lady. She was gorgeous. She would sit on your chest but you weren’t allowed to touch her or she would rip your skin off. I have scars. The second was a boy cat who was dumber than a box of hammers but lovable. He was a lot of work. He was a large (tall) cat who peed over the side of the litter box. He said it was because his equipment was too big. My husband said no more black cats although you know how that goes.

  3. The only thing better than a black cat is more black cats! As always, I enjoyed the blog and the updates on the cat kingdom at your home! (I hope that was a yawn in the photo, but it suggests a yack up in progress, too! LOL!)

    1. Thank you! I love your blog, too! Yes, it was a yawn, although it could be mistaken for an evil cackle (which, let’s face it, isn’t beyond the realms of possibility!). 😈


  4. Happy New year to Famille Catorze! I hear 10 is the new 5… @ Kate sounds like your lady panther brought all the boys to her yard with her ‘shake
