Happy New Year!

Happy New Year and welcome to 2017!

Today, we look onward to this new future ahead of us.

Today, we ponder all of the potential that this new tomorrow holds.

Today, and every day, we wish all of our dear friends (yes, you!) great happiness and many blessings.

Truly, we wish all of you the happiest New Year ever! Now, let's celebrate. The keg is flowing, so grab a glass and throw a few back.

Astrid and Evan chose those pensive shots above as their contribution to the first Sunday Selfie blog hop of 2017, of course hosted by our great pals over at The Cat on My Head.

And that drawing you see up there, that's our attempt at a celebratory Eighth Day of Christmas, today being the day of those maids a-milking. If you couldn't tell, that's none other than angel Rosie starring in the milky drawing, as she was quite the milk fiend herself.

Cheers to 2017!

Our Tip of the Day:
Today's tip both is and is not simple, and that is to not only have a happy New Year, but to make it one full of hope and optimism. Just as in 2016, there will be times of difficulty and sadness in 2017, but please always have hope. For everything there is a reason, so in this year ahead of us, never forget to look for that silver lining. What's more, such a mindset is healthy not only for the humans out there, but also for their dear furbabies.


  1. Gorgeous pensive selfies, Evan and Astrid! I'm guessing Eddy is too busy with the Christmas tree ... and Thimble is finding her own kind of trouble ;) Happy New Year! Bear and I wish all of you the best.

  2. Happy New Year to all of you! The drawing is sweet and the selfies lovely. Can you believe that I was born on a dairy farm and have never liked milk, not even cat milk.

  3. Happy 2017 to you all! I love your selfies and the milky drawing. Looking forward to seeing more of your wonderful art this year!

  4. Happy New Year, 2017, to you all, and may those pensive selfies turn into smiles and joy the whole year through. purrs ERin

  5. Nice selfies Evan and Astrid. I love the drawing and I knew it was your Angel Rosie the second I saw it. I wish you and your family ( 2-legged and 4-legged) a happy and healthy 2017!

  6. A very Happy New Year to all of you and we hope for a very very good one for everyone. Take care.

  7. Happy New Year, sweet friends. We love Astrid and Evan's pensive, contemplative selfies ... there's a lot to look forward to with 2017 upon us. Great tip today. What a great charge to start the year.

    Happy 8th day of Christmas (Hi, Angel Rosie)! :)

  8. Happy New Year!
    May 2017 bring you much happiness!

  10. Happiest of new years to you, my friends. And I love your message of hope and optimism. That's something I'll be trying to cultivate in the new year--with the help of kitty purrs and plenty of yoga!
