Happy New Year!

Brainball, Lion King of the Ballicai: We're sorry we've been scarce. Mom has been super busy -- she has one novel on submission to a publisher (keeping her fingers crossed!) and is hard at work on another novel which she hopes to have submission-ready by mid-Spring. Wish her luck!

We Ballicai are doing well. We're getting in lots of good snoozes, playing Thundering Herd of Elephants in the wee hours of the morning, and purring and snuggling on our comfy-cozies and with our Mom and Dad.





MaoMao: I've really missed bloggin, but Mom has promised us that she'll help us keep up our bloggie efun if we can't post as much, so I guess I won't have to sharpun my clawsies on her butt. We love bein a part of the Cat Bloggiesphere, and I don't want my sweetiepie and wife, Ariel, to furget what I look like! Here, I'm layin on Daddy's arm while he's usin the compooter.





Dorydoo
: Mom being busy isn't all bad. Means her computer is always warm, and that makes it a wonderful nap spot. Of all the Ballicai, I'm the one who most enjoys heat. I love curling up in front of the heater, too. Earl Grey, cutiepie, would you like to teleport over? We'll find us a warm place to snuggle!





Marilyn: I like to lie on Mom's computer, too, but Dorydoo got it first today, so I'm waiting my turn. She'll have to eat or go to the litterbox sometime, and when she does, the computer will be mine! *smile* I'm sending lots of snuggles to Mickeybear -- we Ballicai are so glad his brother Jeter came home.




From all us Ballicai: We'll post again as soon as we can! And please bear with us while we catch up on our visiting.

Love and purrs to all our friends, and we wish everyone a wonderful year in 2009.

Wow! A novel. I hope your mom is successful getting it (and the subsequent one) published. I have missed you!

Happy 2009 to all the Ballicai from all us Good Cats... and here's hoping your human mom gets good news on both her books.

Hi guys (and gals),
Good to see you again. My SS is bizzy too but nowhere as productive as your mom. She is also trying to publish some papers. Please note that it is not BOOKS. Umm, there is a whole roll of papers in the bathroom, near the toilet. Wonder if that's what she means.

Happy New Year!

We wish all the Ballicai a very Happy & Peaceful New Year!

It's lovely to see you all looking so shiny and happy. Gerry and Angel lie on Mum's arm when she's on the pc too. She had to make the mouse cursor more sensitive so she wouldn't have to move her arm so much!

Happy New Year to all of you guys!!!
