This is Scooby with his first fireside chat. Opie is assisting him on the right on the old cat tree, just to make sure he doesn’t say anything bad about her.
Scooby reports: Dad’s got a serious case of the Monday Blues–can’t say why too personal–and the Chocolate Bunny Blues as well. He mowed the lawn and he hates that as well. We cats try to get him to chillax. Don’t want a heart attack. Knew he shouldn’t have eaten the whole chocolate rabbit at once on Easter! I am famous here for gorging on all the cat food until I vomit it out! Then five minutes later I complain that I am hungry again! I say this is the last fireside chat because the warmer weather is arriving and we won’t be needing the fireplace any more until summer is over. Every one has been amazingly well here at the Feline Cafe. However, Marigold who will soon be turning 15 has the beginnings of kidney disease, so we all know what is going to be ahead for her in the future. The other cats are all 8 years old but not for long as some birthdays are coming. I just want to say that I love Opie up there on the cat tree. Why doesn’t she love me? Everyone wants love and to be loved by someone. Why is it so hard to find someone to love you, that you can love back? Is it too much to wish for?
Opie is giving me the wrap it up signal. So have a good week all you kitties out there. Sit in the windows or go outside if you can, and find some sun.
Today we are putting out a rare Saturday Selfie and also posting a ghost fire engine! Remember the 1974 film “Harry and Tonto” starring Art Carney? I am ready to do the remake with Scooby! Also my posts are going up on Google Plus as I signed on to it. The link is on my left side bar–you have to hit the folder button top left to find it!
Ghost Fire Engine
We have a rare Bonus Ghost Fire Engine to show you! Heard the siren, pulled over to the side of the road to let it pass. Decided to get a photo of it. Little did I know that Stephan King was driving! Watch as the fire engine disappears into another dimension! Seeing is believing!

Zeke in Catio March 24th
Zeke’s musical meow show welcomes in the New Year. It is a slideshow of Zeke set to the Blue Danube Waltz by Strauss.
Scooby says, ” I’ve had enough of this!”
Zeke’s Fireside Chat is the last post of 2017.
Since I am the Editor-in-Chief, I decided to take over the fireside chat from Opie. She is a bit hissy and swatty about it, but she will get over it. Christmas passed pleasantly with no bad surprises and some snow! We like to celebrate 12 days and keep at least some but not all of our decorations up through the 6th of January.
Cold weather does not bother me. I am a Maine Coon!
A couple days before Christmas, Marigold slipped into the garage secretly, and when she came out, she had a hurt leg and was limping around. Went to the vet, who said she was not serious and should heal, which she did, and she is walking around normally now. Try to keep cats out of garages! I don’t go out there myself.
I am happy to report this is the fourth year in a row with no one here crossing the Rainbow Bridge. That is a real blessing! We want to thank all our readers for their support. The Feline Cafe has been more successful this year than any other year by all measures of success! Thank you all old friends and new friends alike!

Whose box is this? I think Marigold was in it first, but Scooby just had to jump in as well. He would not be so quick if it were a swimming pool! These two get along well enough that there will be no rough-housing in the box.
Scooby says this is a pretty nice box!
Marigold says I was here first! If you stay I put a flea in your ear!
Scooby says, are you kidding me?
This is a tight fit!
It fell over! I think I have a flea in my ear!
Zeke asks, is this box for me?
Watch the ear!
It is me–Opie. You don’t seem to see me around as much as some of the other cats. I won’t mention any names. In fact, most of you think I am a boy, when I am actually a girl! It’s all because of that stupid boy living in Mayberry on TV. How sad is that? I used to be the boss around here before Scooby arrived. You see that is because I am the smartest and the meanest. I am still the smartest and the meanest. The problem is Scooby just blunders about without any thought of others, and expects to get first dibs on everything! When he wants something, he just complains until he gets it!
He thinks he is a dog! He even wears dog clothes. We all have seen them. The rest of us have proper manners, and NONE of us wear dog clothes! Next he will be thinking he can fight monsters and solve mysteries! He watches too much television! Scooby turns out to be allergic to fish, and gets big red scabs on his face and neck if he eats it. So what happens? No more food with fish in it FOR ANYBODY! How fair is that? Anyway, thankfully he is not allergic to turkey, as we are all looking forward to getting our share of the big bird on the upcoming holiday. Next post you will get to see me in action putting Scooby in his place. The problem is he is just too dumb to stay in it! That’s all from me today.
Another wordless Wednesday almost. We had our first snowfall. Scooby was ready to go outside in the snow, but it was very cold and he changed his mind, and I had to bring him back in.
