What a great time we all had in Venice! So glad all members of Karl's family attended. Emil looks great in his costume and Mrs. Oz is stunning in hers, as usual. Sorry, Mrs Oz, we took so long. Well, you see, I wasn't a trained gondolier and you guys were lucky to get to your destination dry and in one piece.

Sheesh, Asta even asked me if I sang. C'mon, just be glad that you got a gondolier at all.

do you know my human deserted me for two weeks a year or so ago. She says she went to Venice and loved it. I said " Don't talk to me you traitorous loser".

Still, it does look like a fab place.

p.s, I have dressed up for real for the oscars contest and will post it on the contest site later. x

Dr Tweety of da Fab Five said...

Oh your Venice trip looks fury fun. I yam justee so out of it I didn't know you waz goin.
Tank you so much fur purrin' fur "Missy D"- Delilah.
Here'z a message from her to her frendz:
Thank you so much for visiting while I was so very ill. Mommy thinks I almost died Friday night, so I am rebounding quickly. Mommy now believes I might be allergic to a wasp sting. It was nice to hear that all the kitties of the blogosphere were purring & praying. It helped me to have heart, and my mommy was so appreciative for all of the love.
We hope you will join us for Dr Tweety's Valentine's cruise. More details will be posted later.
Many blessings,
Delilah
