Seymour Here!!

Seymour Here –  Hi everyone!!  It’s been a long time since I’ve had a chance to talk to you all.  You see Mom became a leader of a new great team on Etsy.  It’s called TeamVintageUSA.  It’s a team of vintage and handmade sellers.  It’s a fun team and hassle free.  The only requirement is that shops have to be located in the United States.  Buyers are very welcome to join also. This is our logo. :))

Image

The Captain of the team is Denise from oldandnew8 on Etsy.  She sells beautiful vintage items.  Here is a link to her shop and an item that she sells.   https://www.etsy.com/shop/oldandnew8

As for us here at ADKArtsBoutique  https://www.etsy.com/shop/ADKArtsBoutique  we have been very busy.  Mom has finished and listed a new crocheted baby blanket.  It is so lovely.  A giraffe sitting on a cloud and the cloud is very soft.  So now you have 2 to chose from. They would make a great baby shower, christmas, or birthday gift.  Great for babies and toddlers.  Both the blankets have a faux fur backing that is soft, warm, and comfy.     https://www.etsy.com/listing/191631316/crochet-baby-blanket-baby-afghan-with?ref=shop_home_active_14

We spent one weekend climbing in the Adirondacks.  We climbed Big and Little Crow mountain.  I shouldn’t say we, they left me at home. 😦  Mom, Dad, and Katilee went.  Ben was at work so I was all alone except for my best friend Ursa.  (Goldfish).  I couldn’t even get on the interent so I could talk to Spots in Singapore. ;(  But they came home with some beautiful photographs.  Mom posted one in the shop and here it is.  https://www.etsy.com/listing/190162875/adirondack-landscape-photography-art?ref=shop_home_feat_4

Image

Look at the beautiful view I missed.  But I’ll get to see it anytime I want now without having to climb a mountain.  That is good because  between you and I climbing mountains is not really something I would like.  But I do love the photos. :))  They really had a great day.  It was beautiful and sunny.  They met nice people on the summit with their dog.  Here is some photos of the fun that they had. 🙂

Image

That is my sister Katilee on the right isn’t she pretty. Especially that lovely smile but then I’m her cat brother.  She has been very busy too.  She went to outer space.  Well in her artwork that is where she went.  Here is her newest.  It’s a set of 2 differernt digital paintings. They would be so beautiful in a frame with a black matte.   https://www.etsy.com/listing/191645750/outer-space-art-digital-art-prints-the?ref=shop_home_feat_3

Image

Image

It makes me just want to catch the nearest starship and take a ride.  Maybe some of my friends could come with me.  Speaking of my friends I have just a bit of news.  I haven’t heard from Skylar (he’s probably in trouble again) and Lucy and Kitty’s Mom had been away so they are probably staying pretty close to her now that she’s home.

Spots is sad becasue he can’t use Bobo the Bunny as his live toy any more.  No more playing.  He didn’t know it but it upset Bobo more that she let on.  So their Mom has to keep them separated.

This is a sad Spots:

Image

So now all Spots can do is help his Mom make beautiful things for her 2 shops.

Spot’s Mom can knit beautifully.

I have just been enjoying myself helping my Mom and playing outside.  Being outside it the best. 🙂

Image

Image

Image

So after all that hard work and playing I have to do what cats to best.  That is to take a cat nap. So until next time take care of those who love you unconditionally.  Your furry, feathered, and scaly friends.  Please adopt, rescue, and love.  –Seymour

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?

Image

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. 🙂

Image

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.

Image

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.

Image

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

Image

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

 

Image

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.

Image

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.

Image

Their Mom  Yet Mee Kin of Swami Jewelry has been busy in her two Etsy shops.  RainbowKnit https://www.etsy.com/shop/RainbowKnit and SwamiJewelry https://www.etsy.com/shop/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    https://www.etsy.com/shop/YoyaOriginals

Now for our other friends Lucy and Kitty.  They belong to Averil  from JoolsbyAveril    https://www.etsy.com/shop/JoolsbyAveril

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

Averils lucy cat

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    https://www.etsy.com/shop/eternalVoyagersVault    It is a vintage clothing shop and here are some of her summer items.

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

New Friends

Seymour here:  I’ve made some new friends and I’d really like you to meet them.  Also catch you up on some of my other friends.  I am very lucky.   First I’d like you to meet Kitty Isn’t she beautiful??  I know she is because she looks a lot like me.  😀

Image

Kitty lives with my mom’s friend Averil.  Kitty was a kitten that Averil got at Petsmart. She was one of the strays that they are trying to find homes for. Somebody found her on a roof.  She’s about 11 now.  Kitty has never been a fat cat. She got along so well with the other cat and the dog she shared her home with.  But sadly the cat and the dog pasted on to animal heaven.  Kitty was very lonely so her mom decided to get her a friend to share her home with. The new cat would be company for her, but she has never really accepted Lucy. Maybe because she is older now and can’t be bothered to play. She just tolerates Lucy. She’s a very nervous cat and runs away if anybody comes to the house. But she has to sleep on top of Averil at night and waits for her to go to bed. Now Lucy comes in the middle of the night and has to wash Averil’s face and hair. Averil is not lonely especially at night.  This is Lucy and I think she is a very pretty kitty.
Image

Averil, Kitty and Lucy’s Mom has an Etsy.com shop called JoolsbyAveril  and she makes wonderful jewelry and does artwork.   https://www.etsy.com/shop/JoolsbyAveril   Here is a sample of her wonderful items.

Image

Now I’d like you to meet Layla.  She is a type of cat called a Savannah Cat  She needs to have a vacation and is hoping she could come to and visit me for awhile. Her parents are upset with her as she tore up a new leather couch and scratched the top of a table as she was slipping and sliding on it because it had just been waxed. Her parents love her very much but I think she just needs to get away for awhile where she can relax. They have had so much company that they are driving her crazy. She says she will bring her own catnip and will share with me and anyone else that is here.  We could have a cat party.  Layla saw a picture of Skylar and me and I think she thinks we are real hunks.  She needs that vacation soon because she is on the Lam and hiding under the table. She is afraid she may only have 8 lives left by the time she gets there.  This is Layla

Image

She is friends with Skylar and Yoya from YoyaOriginals  (https://www.etsy.com/shop/YoyaOriginals)  on Etsy.com  Yoya is Skylar’s Mom.  She did a art painting of Skylar and here it is.Image

Isn’t that great!!!! I love it!!!

Now for my Friends In Singapore.  Spots is up to his usual tricks of picking on Bobo The Magnificent Rabbit and Happy Bird.

He loves to chase Bobo through the house and make Happy Talk.  Spots is doing so well because his mom takes such good care of him. It’s hard to believe he has cat HIV.  Here is Spots with the beautiful green eyes.Image

Here is Bobo The Magnificent Rabbit that puts up with being chased by Spots.

Image

The is of course Happy Bird.  He is so beautiful.  He also looks like me. 😀

Image

Spots, Bobo, and Happy’s mom makes the most beautiful jewelry.  Great for weddings. special occasions, or just anytime.

Her shop is called SwamiJewelry on Etsy.com  (https://www.etsy.com/shop/SwamiJewelry)  Here is an example.

Image

Now for me I’ve had a busy week.  My Mom’s fingers have been busy making bags of all kinds for our shop ADKArtsBoutique on Etsy (https://www.etsy.com/shop/ADKArtsBoutique)  I had to help Dad pack and ship some out.  Nothing leaves the shop without my inspection to make sure that they are perfect.  Here is what she has been up to.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Like I said she has been very busy.  This is what her desk looks like.  It’s a mess but that’s good.  If not then she wouldn’t be busy. Image

The printer is covered because that is where I sit.  I’m not allowed to be on her crocheting.  I do walk on and sleep on the keyboard though.  It’s the most fun when she is typing. 😀   I have been spending my free time playing with Ursa my best friend.  She is the most beautiful gold.

Image

Image

So when I’m not playing with Ursa or working at The Boutique I am doing what I do best.  ImageImage

Have a great time until I get the chance to talk to you all again.  I’m looking forward to it.  Please remember to adopt, love, and care for all your furry, feathered, and scaly friends.  They do love you unconditionally.  That is true love. 😀

Take Care  Seymour

PS If you noticed my beautiful collar.  It was custom made for me by Lawrence Carter of AcrossLeather on Etsy (https://www.etsy.com/shop/AcrossLeather)  He does great leather work.  Don’t you just love the hand tooling on my collar. 😀   Thank you Larry.

 

New At ADKArtsBoutique On Etsy.com

Seymour Here:   Hi everyone!!  What is new at the boutique?  Glad you asked.  My mom has been very busy with her fingers flying so fast you can hardly see her crochet hook.  But the out come is marvelous.  She started by adding some new bags to our bags, purses, pouches, and clutch line. So here they are.

First we have is a beautiful Yellow and White one. It’s sleek, stylish, elegant, and dressy. But it’s also versatile enough to go with a pair of jeans.

Image

Next we have a White, Black, and Red Clutch. This beautiful multi-colored clutch is a perfect size and a perfect look.

Image

Then we have a new Cell Phone Pouch. This delightful small dark grey pouch will hold a small Cell Phone. It is also great as a small bag to hold various items.

Image

Now for something a little different.  She decided it was time to make a new doily design. This is a beautiful white doily (mat). It has a center flower design surrounded by pineapples. The bright white color brings a touch of light to any room decor. It is beautiful and functional at the same time. Doilies are great for protecting your furniture while adding elegance.

Image

These are all available at ADKArtsBoutiqe on Etsy. com

https://www.etsy.com/shop/ADKArtsBoutique

She also joined a new team on Etsy.  It is called TeamVintage USA.  She made them a Banner and it was excepted.  She was very honored and delighted to have it featured.  This is it.

Image

She was also asked to be a leader of the team which is another great honor for her.  She is extremely happy and delighted to help the team.

Now for me.  Besides typing this all up which unless you have cat paws you can’t understand how hard it is, I have been busy making sure that shipping is going out on time and packaged well.  I believe in Customer Service.  Then I decided that since winter has not left, actually we just got freezing rain, sleet, and snow that I needed a new place to sleep.  So mom brought in this big new box to store some of her supplies in.  But before she could use it I decided it would make a great place to hide and sleep.  So I pulled two of my small cat blankets into it and that’s where she found me.  Waiting for spring to come and now I get to keep the box.   There in not much else to do after I get my Bouitque work done.  I mean even the mice are hibernating.  My friends Spots, Bobo, and Happy are doing well. Their mom is taking good care of them.

I did get to have some fun.  I went to a Birthday party for my brother Ben.  Here I am officiating! I’m sitting next to dad guarding the ice cream  🙂

Image

Thank you for spending some time with me.  Just waiting for spring as I mentioned before. Hope you all have a great day and remember to adopt, love, and take good care of your furry, feathered, or scaly animal friends.  They love you unconditionally.  😀

SPOTS IS FEELING BETTER

Seymour here:  My friend Spots is feeling better now.  In case you missed the reply his human mom sent to our last blog here it is.

Yet Mee Kin says:

Hi handsome, this is your Singapore brother, Spots. I’m feeling better now, can run and eat like normal, but don’t know when the next attack will be. Just have to depend on my human mom to take good care of me. Would love to play with you someday but this virus in me can pass from cat to cat so its better that we don’t play together, sob, so sad. But my human mom showed me your photos here and I really like you a lot. Maybe we can play in our next lives? :)

That big smile at the end means that she is extremely happy (Over the Moon Happy) that Spots is feeling so much better.  I myself and more than over the moon happy and I know my human mom Patti is too.  This is the best news that I could have here for Christmas.  Please protect you cats as much as possible.  It is so sad to see a pet friend so sick. He lives in a loving and caring home with 2 other pet friends.  A rabbit named Bobo and a parrot named Happy.  They are slowly learning to get along.  I too have another animal friend.  A goldfish named Ursa.  I share her food (I love goldfish flakes) and drink her water.  She doesn’t mind but when she gets tired of me hovering over her fish tank she throws water at me with her tail.  I would never hurt her because we grew up together and she is the best friend to share her food and environment with me.

Spots was adopted off the streets of Singapore by Mee Kin and her family.  He was sick when she found him and took him to the vets.  That cost a lot of money and time but she didn’t care her first thought was to save a life.  He got well and moved in to her beautiful home.  There he had a little trouble getting used to a rabbit and a parrot.  My mom calls him Terror Spots because he liked to pick on them.  But now he was learning to be good with these new friends when he got sick again.  His mom took him back to the Vets and that’s when they found out that he had HIV.

Well, His mom wasn’t going not take care of him.  She had him stay at the Vets until his temperature was normal and they said he could come home.  She is determined to help him in any way and to give him a long and happy cat life as he can have.  My mom and I are so proud of her love and commitment.  She is a one of a kind lady.  We should all applaud her and do the same.  This world could be a wonderful loving place if everyone followed Mee Kin’s lead.

So now I hope that Spots stays well and live as long as possible.  I let you know how he’s doing right here in between my work as mascot.  I am sorry for the promotions that I do add to my blog but that is my job.  On my post where I’ll let you know how Spots is doing I’ll not post any promotional ads or links.  They will be just dedicated to Spots.  So check back now and then to see how my friend is doing.  I’ll also be sharing this with facebook, twitter, and google+  As you see I’m a very social media oriented cat.

Hope this finds you and your cat friends all happy and healthy!! ~~~~~Seymour.

Image

This is Spots just taking a nap.  Which is very good for him.  Me too come to think about it.

All this writing has made me tired so until next time take care.
