"Sending a big hug to you from across the miles. I do hope that your first days of 2009 have been filled with fun, love, and laughter.

Tonight is a BIG night here in Italy. According to Italian folklore, tonight the Befana (the good Christmas witch) will visit our homes. Before you go to bed, you must hang your stocking up and if you have been a good kitty or doggy (which I know you have) Befana will fill your stocking with goodies.
Sending you all a custom made Christmas stockings. Hang them before you go to bed in hopes that Befana will leave you treats!"

Much love from Italy,
Opus (a good cat)

Hi Asta!
It's so nice of you to keep your mom company when she is not feeling well. My owner girl still seems to be turning into a dog but hasn't got any new symptoms yet! Is your mom turning into a dog too?
PS. It was nice of her to share her popcorn with you!

I hope your Mommi is feeling better today.

Eduardo said...

That popcorn looks so good! Asta that pic made my Mommy laugh, "Just say no to the seizure monster." Do you mind if we put that on our blog? My Mommy has seizures & she wants to say no!

Ciao Bella Asta!
I am so happy to see that you have your stocking ready to go! I sure do hope that Befana comes to your house. I think she only comes to Italy, but I am going to stay awake and wait for her so that I can tell her to go and visit my friends from around the world!

I am sorry your Mom doesn't feel well, but I am sure you are taking good care of her. Do give her a kitty kiss from me.

Much love from Italy and happy befana!

Sir Opus

Deb Cushman said...

Your mom's lucky she's got you to keep her company when she's not feeling well! Deb's been a bit under the weather the past week -- but I just leave her alone!

Juno said...

Happy belated New Year, sissy!! We like the new design on your blog.

Please keep your mom's company until she feels better. We know you're the BEST thing she could have in her bed as well as yummy popcorn. :)

Your mom looks so stylish (as always) on your Saturday walky. We also think how lovey the way you and your daddy snuggled on the couch the other day.

We hope the year 2009 will bring you and your family lots of lots of joy and happiness!

Momo & Pinot

We hope Befana is good to you!
Your warm little beard must serve well for crumb keeping!


Stanley said...

Astaroni FB!

I bet your mommi started feeling better IMMEDIATELY once she started popping that delicious popcorn into your mouth! I know that you have magic powers to will eatables right to your waiting lips, but you were a very polite girlie, waiting for mommi to offer.

Please give her some juicy and warm goober smooches to help her feel better. Is she recovering from wearing her leather pants?! Did she overheat in them?

Next time, I'll come over and be her body pillow ~ no popcorn required. Just your presence!

Goober love & smooches,

Lacy said...

Asta, we hope your mommi is feeling better, today! Popcorn in bed sounds pretty good to us! It has been raining, here, for DAYS and we are all bored too!

Stanislaw said...

Happy 2009 to you!

Hope you got more than that one piece of popcorn! My folks usually drop it all over the place (lack of eye-mouth coordination I think, which I happen to be very good at) and Pupi and I steal their scraps. It's like hunting for lost popped cornies!

Sassy Kat said...

Sorry to hear that your mom isn't feeling well. Even though she isn't feeling good I bet it is fun for you to hang out with her in bed and snuggle, plus get the extra treats.
Did Befana come to your place last night? She missed mine if she did. I don't think that she made it state side with all that she had to do in Italy. It cannot be because we haven't been good enough can it?

Deetz said...

Popcorn always make things feel better. I really like the story about Befana and the stocking. Hope you are staying warm and cozy in bed and resting.

Petra said...

Of all the treats I get, Asta (and I don't get many), POPCORN is my favoritest one of all!

I'm glad you're taking such good care of your mommy.
