I learned that this day was created by wellcat.com so cats could have their OWN New Year's celebration. Now, that's pretty cool!!
There are many ways to celebrate this day, one of the more obvious is for someone who wants to add a cat to their family (and who DOESN'T?) this would be a purrfect day to do so!
Other ways to celebrate are to share some things that are cat related, and that is exactly what we wanted to do for you today.
Back in November, our furiends at Sundays at the Shelter shared a page with us that we could color. Mom finally got around to completing coloring it the other day.
The artist behind the original drawing is none other than the talented Maggie Swanson, we reviewed a book of hers way back in 2012, but never realized she has coloring books too! How did we NOT know this?
Mom isn't 100 percent pleased with how the drawing came out. But she sure had fun completing it!

The other bit of news we wanted to share is that our precious and cherished, long time friend Nellie isn't feeling well. We know that most of you have already visited and shared some POTP, but for those who didn't know, I know she would appreciate your good wishes!
Nellie is one of the first kitties I became friends with in the Blogosphere. We have shared many, many good times together. She is super special to me and my Mom. I was beyond flattered when she asked ME to be her Cabana Boy on New Year's Eve and make her some "Niptinis", of COURSE I was happy to oblige! Anything for my "Queen Nellie!!"
I love Nellie with all of my furry heart, and KNOW that she LOVES me, and that is why when she would cavort with other mancats through the years, I didn't mind. I always knew that she had a special place in her heart for ME....and would always touch base with me. I am so happy when she gave me a meow out to help her out on New Year's Eve.
I LOVE YOU sweet Nellie, hoping with all of my heart that you are feeling better soon!!! Not ready to lose you!
Well, my furiends, that's it from me for today, hoping your "Mew Year's Day for Cats" is a special one! Meow to me below and let me know what YOU are going to do to acknowledge this day.
Love to all!
