Souvenir From Antarctica

What a weekend! Jet-lag - missing cats - awards...
Talking about awards:
Henry Helton gave me, Karl, the Thinking Blogger Award "cause that CCSI he wrote was great!"
Thank you
Henry so much, I really appreciate it lot!

And I brought a souvenir back from Antarctica for all of you.
Take it away, it is yours:


Here you can see Mrs.OZ and Emil checking out one of theirs.
They were a little cautious first:


But then they both settled in with their respective souvenir:

Oh, thank you for my cute souvenir from our adventure in the cold, I wish I had this when I was packing and would have takey Chilly, that is her name with me to the Cheerleading Academy. I did teleport back, however, pick the souvenir up and will repack and take Chilly along. That way I will have company on my trip. Heading back to the bus now even though we are stuck and cannot get over the bridge yet. It is too far to take another route so we are at a travel station, cat naps for me today. Will keep in touch if I can.

Gattina said...

Hahaha, too funny these pictures !

Tybalt said...

I love my penguin! I know just where to put him. Thanks, Karl!

PerfectTosca said...

Oh I am so glad Annie came home! Lost cats make me so upset I want to bite my foot! I want to train to be a cat searcher but The Woman says there's not much call for dogs doing that. I want to be the first, what do you think?

Love all the glasses. Very shiek!

Daisy said...

Those round red glasses crack me up!

Sunny's Mommy said...

Cool! Thanks for the souvenir.

Lorianna said...

Hi kitties, thank you for visiting my blog. Your Anastasia is so pretty. Reading about her made me all weepy. (again) It's so hard isn't it? But, your blog is such a nice fun place to visit and I'm grateful to meet so many kitties and their "beans".
Lots of Hugs and Purrs,
Lorianna and her 3 kitties Cody, Billie and Cricket (and also Tookie over the bridge)

Scooby, Shaggy & Scout said...

Thanks for bringing us home something you two! He's a great penguin!
You two look a little tuckered out from the trip, so we'll just tiptoe outta here and let you rest.

Jan said...

What a neat souvenir, Karl. But why the sunglasses all the time? Is it because of the AZ sun? Jan used to live in AZ so she knows how bright the sun is there. But it's pretty bright here too. We canines could use a pair when we go walking. Think we'll look among those we downloaded earlier and see if any fit us.

Thanks.

Thanks for the penguin souvenir with the signature sunnies on.

I would like to invite all of you over this weekend when I, as the official Cheerleader of the National Feline League, will be cheering for the Packers in the playoff. The post will combine the artistic talents of a couple of the kitties from the blogosphere. Please come even if you don't care for the sport! Frankly, I don't know who is who in this game, but Derby asks me to barrack for the Packers.

The Furry Fighter said...

my bean LOVES penguins sooooo much - thank you for such a marvellous and wonderful gift, you are such caring and generous kitties

i am glad you had such a super adventure, it was fun to read about it and join in the fun from afar xxx

How many cat beds do you guys have? They all look nice and comfy.

Tyler said...

Thank you Karl! I know just where to put him! I'm glad you had a wonderful trip!

Thank you for playing my contest. Good luck!

Samantha & Tigger said...

What a cute penguin! Thanks for the souvenir! We loved your adventure in the Antarctic and the Tea Party for Miss Peach was a blast! You all look so cute posing with the penguin. Does it have a name?
Your FL furiends,

PB & J said...

Queen Snickers or Empress said...

Thank you for the souvenir! Empress has decided to name ours Mr. Fluffyhead. She keeps chewing on his feather ears those so they are all soggy now! He is on our blog. :) ~Queen Snickers

Caesar and Princess said...

We love the penguin!
These are such great pictures today. Everyone is happy now!

Jan said...

We love our penguin, Icy. We posted him so everyone can meet him.

We see you enjoyed Karen Jo's limerick about Buddy today.

You're the only one who said to go for it as far as making Jan's eyes match, so we're seriously thinking of doing it. She looks a bit strange with one red eye and one not red eye.

Marilyn MonREOW said...

*giggle*, the penguin is precious! Thank you, dear!

I want to thank you and Ruis again for being such fabulous hosts -- it was a not-to-be forgotten cruise, and a not-to-be forgotten birthday party for precious Miss Peach! You are sweethearts in all senses of the word, *smile*.

Mrs. OZ and Emil look like they've gotten comfortable with the penguin!

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn.

Charlotte said...

I did post to thankyou for the lovely penguin souvenir but it's not here! Wonder what happened to it. Anyway, I have showcased it on my blog and thankyou again. It's a cutie and my first present from a kitty friend!

I have posted a game on my blog. As you are a veteran of CB, you should have no trouble with the answers. Test your skill!

Charlotte said...

Surely, Karl, you must know all those kitties!

MoMo said...

OK, Karl, a lot of the kitties have named their penguins - Mr Fluffyhead, Bertrand, Icy, Chilly.... I shall settle for Floe. How do you like it?

Charlotte said...

Name for the penguin? Mine is Blizzard.

wildcatsthree said...

The kitties look quite pleased with their new souvenirs. Loved the pics!
Also, thanks for your comment on my blog - FYI, I've posted today about Temptations cat treats.
Have a great weekend!
Chris and the cats
