New Year's Eve may be fun for humans but certainly not for cats, except the good food ! Instead of being 6 people we were only 3, because the others had a cold and had to stay home. This wasn't important at all to Arthur and Pookie who, thanks to Mr. G's good education methods were turning around the table and intended several times to even jump and nibble in the plates. Of course my friend who is a cat fan too, gave them a bit of salmon and Mr. G. too, only I was hard hearted !

Arthur with his usual charm when it comes to guests, made Nicole fall in love with him, while Pookie enjoyed being petted all the time.

He spent the whole evening (after the salmon of course) behind the CD's and DVD's and groomed and slept there peacefully.

When the fireworks started at midnight, he continued and stayed cool like James Bond in all situations,

while Kim fearing an earthquake hid under Mr. G's bed

and Pookie under my desk. But when she saw me coming with the camera, she came out and thought the worst is over.

Now the days have turned into normal, which means that

Pookie follows Mr. G. everywhere and watches over him even in very private places,

Rosie tidies up the Living room and throws her mousies in the air,

and Kim makes her usual walks and just came back for lunch.

I hope you all didn't suffer too much because of the crazy humans and that nobody ran away !

Yes, those fireworks can be quite scary! Glad to see things are back to normal. Pookie is so funny following Mr. G everywhere!
Happy New Year to all!

Poor kitties, those fireworks are awful. Glad to see Arthur was his usual self though - I do like Rosie's way of doing housework, might have to try it myself :O) Happy 2012 to you all xx

We stayed indoors all night to be safe. Target thought that was bad until the bangs started, then he got the picture. Au hid under the table and Guido was asleep throughout the whole on the sofa. Wishing you all a Happy Healthy Safe and Fun New Year.

...and for doggie too no fun. Ours get ill after new years eve.
The cats here hide all under beds and couches and came back when it gets silent outside. except Luzie who thought it is better to stay with the neighbors ...
Poor pets!!!
A happy and healthy new Year to you and your human and catfamily!!!

King Arthur rules also in the New Year.
An elegant position, but with all the noise coming from the TV as well, he must have had a rough headache the day after.
The other inhabitants of your home reacted more "human"!
One hour of fireworks is more than enough for me too.

Happy New Year! It looks like the cats did well with the celebrations, but are now happy that things are back to normal.

I survived this new year too , I sat in the bedroom window and watched the fireworks our neighbors send up at 00:00.
My mom and dad stayed home with me this year = GREAT !!
Here is also things back to normal or as normal it can be in my crazy home ;-)

We were lucky this New Year cos there were hardly any fireworks near where we live but sometimes they go on and on until it seems like furever!
Happy New Year to you and your husband and of course your lovely

Happy New Year to you all! We love the way Rosie "tidies up"! MOL!

Splendid Little Stars said...

Thank goodness things are back to normal now after all that excitement!
Arthur sure found a wonderful spot to hang out in! safe, cozy, and warm, too, no doubt!
Olvier and Earnest got in the holiday spirit by helping with the "decorating."

Pookie and Kim, we understand why you were hiding ... we don't like fireworks, either!

Arthur is definitely "James Bond"-cool, and Rosie, you sure do a great job of arranging those rugs.

Happy New Year, dear friends. :)

Mommy was quite surprised that we didn't seem very bothered by the fireworks this year. Glad everyone's safe and happy!
