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!

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.
