Scooby and the Vacuum Revisited / Squirrel

Several years back I posted these videos of Scooby and the vacuum. Since there are plenty of new people browsing around the Feline Cafe–no masks required, I have posted these today to once again illustrate that Scooby likes the vacuum. He is a real annoyance as you can see trying to vacuum as he won’t even get out of the way for it. He likes to play with the wand as well. So there you have it– video and audio proof! No, he is NOT deaf! No matter how quietly you try to open a tin of cat food, he can hear it and come running out of a dead sleep! As a bonus, today I add a video of my clockwork squirrel on the dining room table. He goes much faster if he is wound up tighter, but I am afraid to break the spring. If you do not have audio working, you can hear the squirrel chew his nuts. His eyes used to roll around but alas no more!

I add yet another photo below of Scooby from Jan 4 2020 where he predicts what the year will be like for us all.

Valentine’s Day 2019

Today we celebrate Valentine’s Day 2019. I hope every one of you has a “valentine”! Christine is my valentine. When my father was young, he kept all his holiday cards. After he died, I discovered them in an old cardboard candy box. Most were valentines which the children exchanged, and thus, are children’s rather than adult cards for the most part. They range from 1917 to the late 1920’s. These are not all. Some I put up before years back, but I don’t know which ones, so, I post a lot of them. Sorry but there are no cats.

Christmas Past

Christmas Past shows a photo of Opie being a good girl resting beneath the artificial Christmas tree. Things had to change when Scooby arrived in the family.  Christmas trees had to be removed unfortunately.  We have other lighted decorations however which make us happy at night when they are illuminated plus an attractive gas fireplace.

Happy Valentines Day

Valentines Day has come around again!  What do we do on every Valentines Day here?  We show some vintage valentines! Where did they come from?  When my father was young, he saved his holiday cards, and I inherited them.  Valentines are the most numerous followed by Christmas cards.  The numbers trail off for the other holidays.  This year I picked out many of the 3 dimensional cards for viewing.  None of them have been punched out, and I am not going to punch them out either, so you kind of have to use your imagination how they would look or go together.  The cards are from the 1920’s.  Sorry, but there are no cats on any of them,.
