My name is Harry Spotter and I am a Sphynx, which means I don't have any fur. I am just bald and naked and proud as can be. When I was home for just a few months mom and dad found out I had a heart murmur during a check-up. My first momma was upset that it turned out I had a heart problem, so she offered to take me back but my new momma said -No! They could never give me up, she even offered to give momma a new kitty and keep me too. But, momma said no, not at this time. So, I went to a heart specialst the vet reccommended. He prescribed a human beta-blocker every morning. I am 4 years old now and feeling fine-cold sometimes but fine.
I had a sister Lady Harley that passed away at age 14. She was like a momma to me. I miss her. My life was very lonely without her so mum and dad got me a new sister named Fiona. What a pest! You will have to read my blog to find out why.
By the way you may notice I sometimes speak in British slang on my posts. Love speaking in slang, so much fun. I also have an affinity for all things British. I love my Bowler, Brolly and Butty sandwiches. Cheerio!
I am taking over Fiona's Fashion Friday and Chat today to model this very Manly custom made Tux by Pretty Kitty in Russia. Mom told Alena that she wanted something very special for me to wear with my Bowler. So, Alena looked at my pictures and drew up this custom made tux jsut for me. It is an Alena original and I am the first one to wear and model it. We saved it for New Year's Eve so I could ring in the New Year in a very festive way. I think it makes me look even more dapper and British, especially when mom puts it on right. The first time she had my vest with the hankie on my back, then realized it was on wrong. Although you do get a better look at it that way. Moms know nothing about properly dressing a British Mancat in a Tux with tails.
If I could have only spun my head around like the exorcist kity this would have been perfect. Alena makes beautiful clothes, she has a whole line of sweaters for both mancats and ladycats. Mom purchased the tux so we are in no way obligated to give a positive review. I just love the way my sweater tux hugs my smooth and toned body showing off my manly arm muscles so I am giving it a 4 paws up. To see more of her hand made sweaters visit Alena at Pretty Kitty .
We have exciting news for 2011. We are planning some product reviews, give aways, a Bowler Photo Contest, and a commentathon on my 5th birthday in May to raise some green papers for our Fur Friends at the CB. Also, Megan at Build A Sign contacted us. She wants to help the kitties at the CB along with her Company Build a Sign with an Auction to raise funds for those who need help with their vet bills. They are hoping to give away a 18 x 24 polystyrene art print that can be customized with your favorite kitty on it. This is my custom art print on the left that they helped me customize to my specifications. Had to make sure my Bowler was just right. It is in the process of being made. I can't wait to get it and see what it looks like.
Visit their art print page and see what they have and all the ways you can customize your art print. You can pick one from their site or change the picture and add your own, add text, change the background, etc. It's really fun. Megan will help you customize it. They will even ship it for free to the highest bidder in the US. Any winner outside the US mom will split the shipping cost. They are very eager to help the kitties who need help with their vet bills. We are still in the planning stages. We might be auctioning it off here or at the CB. Keep your paws crossed that this works out. All proceeds go to the Fur Friends of the CB.
It was a busy year, we don't know what we would have done without all our friends at the CB helping our with our vet bills. Because of you Fiona had the treaments and meds she needed , along my my vet needs after Fiona passed on her virus to me. I was very sick, cats are not supposed to bark and I was barking, had chest congestion and it was very serious especially since I have HCM (heart murmur). We are both healthy and happy now because of your generosity.
We also had a new addition to our family, Sweet Pea who came all the way from China. She growing like a weed and keeping everyone on their toes, including us. We also celebrated our 1 year blog anniversary and Fiona's 1 year Gotcha Day at Thnaksgiving, and our 100th Post. We didn't mention it because we were still having computer problems back then. Comcast is still disconnecting randomly on us. Mom is going to switch to U-Verse and kick Comcast to the curb.
As we put the past into perspective and give thanks to those that helped along our journery we look forward to 2011, family, our CB friends, and all the blessings in our lives.
We wish everyone a Happy, Healthy, Joyous, and Laughter -Filled New Year along with the love of family and friends.
Ps...I want to give a shout out to Sammy and Andy's mom who helped me with my Bowler. Thank you!
