Lives and Times Of Seymour

Seymour Here.  I hope all mothers out there had a very happy day yesterday.  Even I got dressed up for the occasion.  I was so unfortunate because I didn’t catch a chipmunk, a squirrel, or a rabbit.  That meant I didn’t have a present from my human Mom.  I think she was just as happy with my getting all spruced up for the day.  What do you think?


I think I look really good in my bow tie. 🙂

We have been busy at ADKArtsBoutique on Etsy.  Here is what we have added that is new.

This is a Crocheted Baby Blanket that Mom made.  It even has an faux fur backing.  So soft!!  I have one too that used to belong to my brother Ben when he was a baby.  Two new backings later and it’s still going.  It’s also machine wash and dry.  Mom likes that so she can keep it clean and tidy for me.  It’s also great for the babies because we all know babies can be cute but messy. 🙂


Next thing that is new is my sister Katilee made this wonderful fall painting. We just call it Autumn.  It the feeling of the fall leaves with the wind blowing as a storm is rolling in.


I love to look at Autumn paintings and photographs any time of year.  It’s my favorite season next to summer.  I love the fall color and chasing the leaves in the yard.  Though not as much fun as chipmunks and rabbits.

I bet you have been wondering whats up with all my friends.  Well I’ll tell you.

First my Singapore buddies Spots, Bobo, and Happy

Spots is doing really well.  Busy chasing Bobo the living toy, making Happy squawk, and chasing lizards.

This is Spots hunting.  He tells his Mom he’s looking for me but I know better.


He hunt and plays so hard that he gets like me.  Hungry!!!  This his how he looks when he wants food from his Mom.


Then after he convinces her to feed him then he get very tired and needs to find a place to lay down.

He needs to get his energy back to chase Bobo.  LOL



For those of you who don’t know Bobo.  Here is the living cat toy.  At least that is what Spots thinks no matter how many times his Mom tells him that Bobo is a bunny and another pet.


When Spots is napping or in the other room his Mom lets Happy stretch his wings.  Happy really like doing that.  Can’t you just see him smiling in this photo.


Their Mom  Yet Mee Kin of Swami Jewelry has been busy in her two Etsy shops.  RainbowKnit and SwamiJewelry  Here are some of her wonderful handmade items.

Now about Skylar and his antics.  We all know about his girlfriend Merry and have been wondering what she looks like. So this is Merry.  Wow she looks like Spots!!!  No wonder he is crazy about her.

Merry Yoyas Cat

Skylar has sent me a letter telling me what he has been up to.  So I’ll let him tell you.

Hey Duds, Skylar here, just checking in to let ya all know what’s happening in my life right now.
Merry is still banned from playtime at my house. Mom says she is a mischief maker. Who would of thought that breaking and entering my catnip cupboard would cause soooo much trouble. EEE.Meow meow hisss and spit. Now because we did the stinky DO-DO in mommy’s flower pots, Merry can’t come over until I make STOP signs that say NO POOPING HERE!!! Seymour I am so longing to see Merry but I must focus on these DO-DO be gone signs. So I must get busy with the job at hand. Will catch ya later buddy.



We also have a dog story for you.  This is from Yoya’a Dog Key Key D.

That parrot that hangs out there needs to work out her wings because Those cats that are strung out on catnip say they are coming back and they are going to clip her wings good for her/him and they are fixing to serve her under glass. You Know like they do the pheasants. Her mom better be giving her lots of seed ammo to head’um off at the pass. I will be sending in the baby gargoyles to help protect her. Their names are Picker, Chewy and Bellyacher. You’ll know’um when you see’um.. Will wire you more later. YoyaOriginals

Now for our other friends Lucy and Kitty.  They belong to Averil  from JoolsbyAveril

Averil says that Lucy is fat now and waddles when she walks.  I think she is just beautiful.  What do you think?

Kitty is the star in a mystery.  I’ll let his Mom Averil tell you about it.

I forgot to tell you about Kitty. I was making a leather bracelet and this piece of leather had a knot in it. So I asked Ronald to get the knot out for me. Later, I asked him where my piece of leather was. He said that he had left it on the bed. I told him that it wasn’t there. I have been giving Kitty and Lucy my left over pieces of macrame cord to play with. I’ve been tying ribbons on and beads for them to play with. Kitty must have picked up my leather cord. I told her she better find it!! Ronald said he hoped she hadn’t eaten it. I said, “She better not, I’m making a bracelet out of it!” Do you know that leather has disappeared, that was 2 days ago. Well, she hasn’t thrown it up, so I’ve no idea where that piece of leather is!!! The mystery of the missing leather!!

Kitty looks so innocent.

We also have a friend named Evelyn (Timekeeper) on Etsy.    Her shop is called EternalVoyagersVault    It is a vintage clothing shop and here are some of her summer items.


Also let’s not forget the best leather collar maker in the world.   He makes belts and wallets too.  All handtooled and handmade.  I know he made mine.  🙂  Lawrence Carter from AcrossLeather


Thank you for spending some time here with me.  I’ll be back when I can.  I’m on my way outside to chase the live cat toys around the yard.  Remember to adopt, love, and take special care of your furry, feathered, and scaly animal friends.  –Seymour

My New Friend Skylar and My Bath Time

Seymour Here.  Hi all.  Just dropped in to tell you what’s up with me.  I have a new friend.  This is Skylar.  He lives in Florida and wants me to hunt Lizards with him.  That is what he is doing in the photo.


Skylar and I will become great friends I know it.  But I’m leaving the lizard hunting to him.

I hope every one has had a great St. Patrick’s Day.  Now this is the way to celebrate.


Now I’d like to tell you a bit about Skylar’s mom.  Her name is Yoya and she is a great artist. She is writing a book too.  It will be about a Swan and a Dinky Bird.  Oh what is a Dinky Bird.  Well this is.  The artwork is belongs to YoyaOriginals©


Isn’t cute.  I love it.  Can’t wait for the book to come out and when it does I’ll definitely let you all know.  What other art does Skylar’s mom do.  Here are some examples.



But being a cat this is my favorite one!!!  It’s call cat and mouse.  Isn’t it fun!!


All of these beautiful paintings and more are available at Etsy. YoyaOriginals.  Here is a link if you’d like to check it out.

My other friends are all fine.  They are happy and healthy.  That is the best news.  My St Patricks Day was cold.  No Green Beer for me either.  I’m not sure I’d like it much anyway.   I did have to have a bath though.  I have dry cat skin and it makes me itchy.  So I have to have a bath now and then.  I look funny when I take one.  The villain that is giving me one is my mom  and my sister Kati took the photos.  She thinks their funny.  I don’t !!!



Here I am drying off under the heat lamp.  At least it’s warm and toasty


But once I get all dry I can get tucked in and take a nap.  Now that what I call living!!


So I’m off back to dreaming of summer and being outside chasing all the wonderful little creatures out there.  Please Adopt, Love, and Protect your furry, feathered, and scaly friends they love you unconditionally. —Seymour

Looking for Spring!!!

Seymour here:  My last post I told you what was new in our shop.  Now I’d like to tell you about my friends.  Here is my best friend Spots.  He loves to drive his human mother crazy by picking on his friends Bobo and Happy.  He loves to chase Bobo ( Rabbit) and stick his paws in Happy’s cage (parrot).  I’m not much better I love to tap on Ursa’s (goldfish) tank just to make her swim. LOL


Bobo The Magnificent Rabbit has had a hair cut.  Now he doesn’t look like a tribble.  More like a stock broker.  Such a good rabbit to put up with Spots antics.


I don’t happen to have any photos of Happy.  I’ll have to ask his mom for some.

Ursa is a great friend.  She puts up with me.  Image

Now me.  I’ve been just looking out the window watching for spring to come.  I think I have a long wait.  It’s very cold out and supposed to snow on and off all the rest of the week and into next week.  I dream of last year when I was out side on my rope playing.


Or camping with my family


But it looks like this outside right now.


So I guess I’ll have to be patient and wait for Spring and this is the best way I know how.

Have a great last day of February and Happy March tomorrow-  Seymour


Whats New!!

Seymour Here.  Hi Everyone.   Just thought it was time to check in and let you all know whats NEW! First my Mom and Dad went out last night to the theater (Proctor’s in Schenectady NY) and saw the musical Sister Act.  Not like the movie and all different music. But they liked it a even more so.  They had a great time, brought home hamburgers and nothing for me. What’s up with that???  Oh well.

There has been lots of snow and cold here this winter.  But we have a heat wave today highs in the 40’s.  Believe me that is warm compared to what we have had.  I can’t wait till it’s all gone and warm so I can go out and play on my leash.  Chase a few chipmunk, squirrels, rabbits, toads, and my favorite snakes.  My sister Kati hates it when I bring snakes to her but I just don’t know why.

At the Boutique we have been busy adding a new digital art painting and photograph.  I personally think that they are fantastic.  They are cat approved.  Of course I approve of everything that goes into the boutique.

First there is Kati’s new painting.  It is called Irish Darling.  This  digital art painting is darling and has a nice feeling to it.  An Irish maiden takes a walk through the countryside. Enjoying the mists in the hills she stops by a stone wall to have her portrait painted by a young artist. This is the Irish dream I see when I gaze upon this lovely painting. What is yours?             


Next is my brother Ben’s new photograph.  Its called Snow Train.  This is a wonderful photograph of an Amtrak Train heading north through a snowstorm. The wheels kick up the snow as the train speeds by on it’s way to Montreal. This photograph would be great in a den, man cave, office or studio. It’s a really great gift for any train enthusiast. So come with us and enjoy the magic of the rails.


My friends are doing fine.  Ursa swims around her bowl, shares her food and keeps me company when humans are gone.


Spots is doing well.  He’s helping his Mom with her Etsy shops Rainbowknit and Swamijewelry


Bobo The Magnificent is getting spoiled as always.  Spots loves to terrorize him.


Hope you all are having a great day.  Waiting for dinner time here.  Keep warm, well fed, and comfy.  Don’t for get to hug your human today.  They need special attention.  As always “Save A Life, Adopt”  or  “Save A Stray”  Everyone needs a home with lots of love.



New at ADKArtsBoutique!!!

Seymour here.  Just thought I’d let all you wonderful people know that my human sister Katilee has been busy.  Here is her latest work.  It’s a digital art sketch called Whispering Water.


Beautiful isn’t it.  Inspired by the experience of sitting by a forest stream and listening to the comforting sounds of the water as it flows by.

Come by The Boutique (ADKArtsBoutique) on Etsy

and check out all of Katilee’s wonderful paintings.  Also while there check out all of our other great items. They make great gifts for someone you know or just for yourself to enjoy.

Thanks Seymour


Thinking of Spring!

Seymour here:   These hand embroidered pillowcases will bring spring into you home a little earlier.  They also make a great gift for any occasion.  With Valentines day fast approaching these will surely brighten someones day.   They are standard sized and Hand made.  I know I watched them being made by Patti (MOM)  Image

I’ve been busy working at the boutique doing my special duties.  Here am I checking on the snow that fell the other day.Image


This is my foot print.  Snow is cold and I’m not sure I like it.



But it sure can be pretty.  I took this the other day.  As you know I’m a cat with special talents



and also this snow crystal


Hope everyone is having a good winter.  Please keep warm and remember to keep your animal friends warm too.  —-  Seymour–  ADKArtsBoutique

So feel free to stop by our shop with you cup of coffee and browse. Who know what you’ll find. Oh and stop by Across Leather too while you are at Etsy.

A Little Of What We Do

Happy New Year To Everyone

Happy New Year To Everyone

Seymour Here:  I am back at it here at the Boutique.  Christmas is over and the New Year is around the corner.  So just a reminder of what we do to pay bills and keep me fed.  Actually everyone has a full time out of house job except for me and my human mom.  Etsy is her full time job and keeping her in line is mine.  We’ll be closed again on Dec. 31st and Jan 1st but then it’s back to business which mean I really have to get going on facebook and yet keep you all advised of what is new.  Good thing I’m social cat and love everyone.  Because I’m an unusually big house cat I sometimes scare people.  But as they say I’m just a pussy cat.  I like to be petted and hugged.  So until next time take care of yourself and your furry pets.  All they want is love and protection.   😀   Image
