First Annual Blessing of the Pets

News from Longmont Colorado.
Yesterday the two cats that allow us to join them in their Airstream when we travel, performed the first Annual Blessing of Airstream Pets ceremony.
The first picture shows Tiger presenting the Invocation while the second is Daisy performing the blessing ritual.
Happy Airstream Holidays to all,
Ken & Susan

Too cute!

If I tried that with our cat, I'm sure I'd be wearing bandages for a few days...

The ceremony was not without its bad moments. Meesha, our retired traveling cat made a brief appearance, but then returned to the audience and took advantage of the fact that she is recovering from tail surgery by mooning the podium. There is one in every crowd.

So cute! Maybe instead of a cape, Meesha could have a little skirt to cover her tail until her fur grows back...

More news

Kougar, one of our stay at home cats, took the podium to give the attendees an opportunity to take advantage of an old American superstition. If you see a one eyed cat, spit on your thumb, press it to your palm and make a wish. The wish will come true. However, the audience was having difficulty finding their thumbs.
I asked Kougar to keep an eye out for some more information for me. He told me that Tiger, being of Asian ancestry, was teaching Daisy about Asian cultures. In Japan, a cat with its right paw raised will bring prosperity. That explains Daisy's pose. He was also able to obtain this photo of Tiger retrieving water from the Sacred Pink Pool.

Good vs Evil

Finally Ashlee and her sister Ember took the podium. Ashlee explained about the virtues of tortie cats, and Ember told how mean they could be if they wanted to.

Sad News

I am very sad to report that one of the cats in this thread passed away the day after Christmas. Meesha, the kitty in post #4 with the bare bottom, finally succumbed to the effects of diabetes.
We found her 15 1/2 years ago when we stopped at a wide spot beside US 50 in Nevada. She was eight weeks old and hiding in a Sage brush bush. We took her in our trailer for the rest of the vacation, and from then on she always traveled with us. She finally retired from traveling about a year ago when her health got to the point that she was better off staying home. Susan and I will miss her very much. I can also tell that her buddies Daisy and Panther are missing her quite a bit. The house doesn't seem the same. I know the sadness will eventually give way to good memories, and we will always think of her whenever we are in the trailer.
Regards,
Ken

I'm so sorry to hea about your loss. We recently lost Claire who was about 13. I still look for her in her favorite places. We will be traveling soon with oprah and Baby Cat, they both love the AS and all the windows. Tiger and Nubin' will keep the home fires burning while Picasso will go and visit his brother.

So sorry to hear about your loss. But I'm sure that she had a long and happy with you, you sure sound like wonderful cat parents. We also have an elderly cat who's health is starting to fail.

Love, love the pictures. Such fun! I could never get my cats to pose for pictures like that, especially wearing costumes.

But I have to ask, did someone get a new camera for Christmas?

Well actually my wife did get a new camera, but these pics weren't taken with it. They were from pictures we took for our Christmas card. A couple not very good scans of our card are below.
Thanks everyone for the thoughts,
Ken
