But first, the winner of the Fab Gabs mens giveaway is....Misc-Maranda! Contact me at solanahraquel@gmail.com for details :)

Ok, so while I was in California Sam went out at got me my very own fluffy kitty :) (*He is adopted from a shelter, everyone is asking, hehe) Isn't he adorable! He's about 5 years old, black and brown with a white belly, and is soooo cuddly! His name is Hobbs, but I call him Hobberton.

He is usually pretty relaxed and cozy, but today when we tried to take pictures he would not have any of it! Silly kitty.

So there you have it, I finally have a REAL kitty to cuddle with, maybe he will appear in some future outfit photos :)

The last picture is of a chocolate cat Julie gave me the other day, I actually did have trouble eating it's little chocolate self. But it was yummy!

On a few other notes: Vixen Vintage has hit 2,000 followers! Thank you 2,000 times to you all, I'll have something special soon for you all!

And, thanks everyone for entering the giveaways, I wish I got that many comments everyday! There will be more giveaways of all kinds in the future :)

He is so cute!!! And fluffy.

I literally just got done posting on Facebook about wanting a kitty, haha. Unfortunately, the apartment doesn't allow pets. Sad day. :(

Congrats on 2,000 Followers! :)

Kitties can be so camera shy can't they. Or not so much shy as defiant hehee. The best time to catch them on film is when they're sleeping or just woken up and still too drowsy to protest hehehe ;-)

He's a very cute kitty Hobbs - Was he rescued from a shelter? I think it's great when people take on adult cats as they are often overlooked amongst the kittens at shelters.

Awww he's cute! I'm a sucker for black cats. I think it's lovely that you adopted an older cat. Most people tend to get kittens, but there are lots of lovely mature animals out there who need loving homes too. Hope you are happy together!!

Elizabeth said...

hehe snap Esz!

just because we don't comment doesn't mean we're not here :)

...and if it makes you feel better, people probably don't comment as much as you'd expect due to the absolute awesomeness you exude. so true.

He's adorable! I babysit a couple of kitties, but somehow cats and I don't speak the same language. We look at each, and they wonder off and sit in the corner staring at the wall. I think I'm a dog person and they know it.

i was so excited about winning i almost forgot to actually read the rest of the post! ;)

my (soon-to-be-clad-in-awesome-ties) husband is allergic to cats so it's nice to live through other bloggers and their felines! although maybe i should follow suite and start collecting kitty print clothes as a substitute!!

p.s. the 'word verification' for this comment is "polikat" how fitting.

He's adorable!!! Congrats, They make life fun!

Congratulations on getting a new kitty AND 2,000 followers! I was wondering why you didn't have a kitty! It always makes me so happy when people get adult animals, did you adopt? I'll look forward to the many adorable kitty photos that are sure to come!
And I'm a bit jealous b/c with our move, we had to leave our precious kitty with a friend for a whole month!
Take Care,
Valerie

Kitty!!!

Zohar said...

Oh what a lovely cat!! I love that you adopyted a grown-up cat, they deserve love as well :)

Brooksie said...

I love Hobbs, what a sweetheart! The other day I saw cat shaped lipsticks (when you were at the Gatsby picnic). The tops were shaped like kitty heads and I wanted to e-mail you a pic but it was protected and I could not even get the link to work. As soon as I saw them (I just about rolled over and died because they are so darn cute)& I thought of you! You should try to google cat lipstick to see if you can find them.

Marjorie P. said...

Your kitty is ADORABLE! I have two of my own, and they are the best! I am so happy you are a cat person ;)

Did you adopt this cutie?

Frl. Irene Palfy said...

Your cat is really cute!! My two little cats Mina & Lucy send their kind regards - and so do I. Gee, - what a handsome gentleman! :")

shannie said...

I wish I still had my kitty :(
But he ate the ham and part of the turkey at christmas, and my mum threw him out! :(

Anja said...

Awww, what a lovely cat :)
I love cats, they're so funny and sweet! I've got two at my house :)

Lauren said...

He's lovely! Congratulations - I hope you're both very happy together!
BTW, if he has any trouble settling in, I seriously recommend Feliway. My 2 rescue cats got new happy personalities when I got some. Hopefully he's a happy cat anyway though. Looking forwards to seeing lots of him!

Fran said...

Awwww he's gorgeous!

Fiona Timantti said...

Cute little guy! I love cats!

Casey said...

Oh my goodness--Hobbs is so cute!!! :D Even if he is a little camera shy (so is my rabbit, which is why he hardly shows up on the blog!). ;)

And congrats on 2000 followers!!!

Food, flora and felines said...

Oh my god that has the be the best present ever! I have five little baddies myself. Cats really know how to make a house a home, Happy days :)

Emma said...

Hobberton seems to be a rather fitting name, I hope you have a little bit of money tucked away to invest in pet hair rollers! Although, I must say that black hair everywhere isn't as bad as white.

You and your home are adorable as always, especially the little lovebirds painting.

tracy rose said...
