visit in NY

The day finally awwived,my Sissies came to visit fwom out of town!!!! ...Yeahhhh!!!!!

My Sissies, Momo and Sassy, came to NY to visit me ,and chaperone the young ones, my new friends, Scylla and Charybdis, , as they wanted to go shopping and they have never been away from home by themselves. ..Charlotte wanted to visit her cousin, Mrs Perry, who lives in an apartment near Central Park with her beans. So it all wowked out pawfectly and hewe they all awe!

We checked in at the Witz-Cawlton..even though I live hewe in NY, I wanted to spend as much time with my sissies as possible and so I decided to stay at the hotel fow the doowation of theiw twip...

left to wight..Charlotte,Momo,Charybdis,Asta,Scylla,and Sassy

We decided to dwop off ouw things and go explowe the awea...we wewe uptown, on the edge of Centwal Pawk, and so we walked awound Fifth Ave and Centwal Pawk awea
we found a cawt next to Centwal Pawk...I had a hot dog...Momo and Sassy both wanted an ice cweam, and I stood in fow the guy who sells so he could wun and ummm use the facilities, heheheh

Charlotte Scylla and Charybdis had welatives to visit , so we sepawated and my Sissies Momo and Sassy came shopping with me...

Charlotte Charybdis and Scylla
The youngew kitties went off by themselves..

while my sissies Sassy and Momo and I went to shop
fiwst stop Tiffany's fow just a few small items ..aftew all the giwls need to take home pwesents fow evewyone and souveniews.

aftew which we had a vewy lovely lunch of smoked salmon and tea, and just a few pastwies
Shopping always makes me hungwyAsta, Sassy and Momo

Well I was hoping fow a nap at this point, but, we had tickets to go see Wicked..so back to the hotel and we changed into evening dwesss


as we passed Twump Towew..The Donald begged us to pose with him...sheeesh, I guess he can't wesist being seen with young women..can't he see what he looks like??? That stoopid haiw??? give me a bweak..but being well bwought up kids , we obliged.

I loved the stairs..going down in a gown makes you feel like a pwincesswe all loved the show and had the best day evew!!! but wewe weady to go fall into bed and get some booty sneep

bwight an eawly the next day we walked ovew to Wockefeller Centew
They wewe in the middle of taping the Today Show..so we decided to take a look

Even though I live hewe I've nevew been..I'm oosually in bed having bweakfast at that houw, but we wanted to spend as much time togethew as possible. The young ones weally enjoyed being on camewa..what cuties!

we wewe spotted by one of the talent scouts fow the View and immediately whisked off to the set to talk to Bawbawa Waltews

we had a spiwited discussion about the conceptual importance of promoting goodwill among the furries and our experience as inter-species siblings.
(..stwangely enough theiw wawdwobe depawtment made us take us off ouw supew stylish outfits ..they said Middle Amewica wouldn't undewstand it and would not be able to feel like we wewe one of them...that's so stoopid!!! I think Middle Amewica is smawtew than they think)
This was followed by another show in which Sassy was asked to be the guest host. Please go to her blog for more details.

...while that went on, I had to make an appeawance on the wunway at Fashion Week..a fwiend of mine had given me this outfit,(that's how we NY giwls dwess well..we get fwee stuff)..but in wetuwn ,I pwomised to appeaw on the wunway in his show

having finished my obligation..we wewe fwee to hit the town, see some sights, and shop some mowe.

but by the end of the day I was weally tiwed and weady to go home and cuwl up in my own bed...so I said my fawewells and helped evewyone pack

At the end evewyone was shopped out and ready for home with many more bags......The twip was much too showt ..but they pwomised to wetuwn and stay longew next time!

We can't wait to come back and visit you again. If you get a chance teleport down to the Mississippi Gulf Coast and visit us.

You looked like a princess in you formal gown.

Snowball said...

You must be really tired after all the shoppings.


Sassy Kat said...

Oh what a fun trip and how nice to spend time with you in your city. We will have to do that again. I had fun on The View but I was really sad that we couldn't wear our pretty clothes. Oh well, I guess that is the tv business. And that play!!!!!!! That is now up there with one of my favorites!!!!!! How beautiful we looked. And Donald, he is a good friend of mine so he won't mind if I agree with you, that hair!!!! Oh well, at least he took us up to the top of Trump Towers for some wonderful food and a beautiful view of the city.
I left you an e-mail about the date problem. Let me know if you need more help I will check back later.
Thank you sweet sister for the wonderful visit. I miss you already!!

HI Asta,
You were a very good hostess showing them around the City. Too bad they didn't have a horse and buggy ride while in central park, but you had a packed time!

Gads and double gads, your clothes are to die for. I am so glad to see that other pups are willing to put aside preconceived notions and hob nob with other species. I would need a nap half way through that day.
