Hi, Maggy here ~ nothing much I like better on a Sunday morning than curling up with the days newspaper and a nice cup of hot coffee.  The ZH and Poppy Vic are plodding around in their robes and slippers, well, the ZH is in her stripey-sox ~ and they aren't so great with conversation or chin scritches early in the a.m. 

And today's paper just has a
ton of news you can use ~ first, the Front Page
As you can see, Zoolatry is all over the front page this morning, with some interesting
announcements about "things to come". 

I'm not sure how ZoZo managed to sneak her photo onto the front page,
but be that as it may ~ read on ~

Here, I turned the paper upside-down so you could see the Front Page
Then on to the Sport Section and look what I found ~ 
the return of International Cat In A Box day.
This was a special event we sponsored in 2008 and 2009, but could not manage to pull
together last year ~ but furriends, it's coming back!  So watch for upcoming details!

I quickly take a peek at the Classifieds & Employment section (not much there, specially
in the way of employment!) ~ but I found that it is time to do the
Annual Purr-Fur-Mance Reviews of those humans, food purrsons, opposable thumbs
that help us with our blogging.  So, again, watch for upcoming details!

Then over in the Lifestyle Section I came across a news story about the famous (or infamous)
Wordy Wednesday Challenge.  An event held in 2007, 2008 and 2009 (!!!) but one
we missed out on hosting last year.  This was a fun event for the many furs who took
part ~ details to be posted soon!

The last section I read is the Editorials & Opinions page, and the Letters to the Editor.
I like to spend a lot of time on these pages ~ pondering whether I agree or disagree!
Today I found a favorite old cartoon of the ZH ~ Poppy Vic sent this to her at one time and
said, "looks like you"!  Ha, she wasn't all that pleased, though she secretly agreed.

Anyway, as you can see the Letters to the Editor and todays Editorial both highlight
the lack of lifeguards on our beaches.  Of course, Zoey and I do our part, but when our
furs get wet (especially that yukky salt water), well we get sooooooo matted.
Anyway, as you can see (if you're a Zoolatry old timer that is)... those upsidedown stripey-sox
mean we're going on a little blog break.  Purrsonally, Zoey and I think she just overdid the holiday
sweets 'n' treats!  But though she's stuck her head in the sand once again
(or in this case, in the ocean waves) ~ we'll be back!  We're gonna work up all the details
on the "coming soon special events" and in the meantime you can MOL to us, or BOL to us.
We'll post notices here on Zoolatry, and on the Cat Blogosphere about each of these events.

  6. Looks like lots of exciting things coming up during 2011. We laughed about the stripey sox because we keep telling our mum she will soon be an old timer. She has a big (unwanted) birthday coming up this year.

  7. What FUN! I'm going to tell mommy to pay attention!

  8. Wow, it is going to be a busy year of fun. Those all sound like great activities. We will get our assistant off her duff and get going. Hope you have a very Happy and Healthy New Year. Our best to Vic.

  9. Boy are YOU AMBITIOUS!!!

    I am reeling with GUILT! lol

    I particularly enjoyed this because I worked at a major newspaper for over 20 years.

    This is gonna be fun!

  10. I LOVE LOVE LOVE wordy Wednesday!!!

  11. Looks like we have a lot of fun ahead of us. Mum says she is agreeing with Eric and Flynns mum and that she will be an old timer this year. But hey the month of the box is special and I wonder could I sneak in a box and come along..Hugs GJ x

  12. How funny. Usually humans take a vacation to recover from an event. But your ZH takes a vacation to prepare for several. Merci shakes head. Do you think she's just trying to confuse us?

  13. You are so busy! We're just hanging out in bed...

  14. Looks like a lot of fun in 2011!

We lost our internet connection Monday morning due to construction in the neighborhood, but we wanted to stop by and say hello now that we are back=nice in a way, but also amazing how much we miss having the computer connection!...It looks like you guys have lots to keep the ZH very busy this year; we hope your Mom gets a good rest for awhile, but suspect she will keep up the pace whether you guys are on break or not...Such a cute and creative post; we love you all very much and appreciate everything your Mom does for us and the CB...xoxo...J, Calle, Halle, Sukki
