American Eskimo and Animal Shrine

We happen to have a mini temple to eskies and other animals. If you look at this photo below, you will see LOTS of pictures of eskies and a few cats, some reindeer, a lhasa apso, a polar bear, and a teddy bear. There are even 3 pictures of human critters.



Food offerings are made to all the critters in the altar. Sometimes my parents eat the food offerings, but then my mom restocks. I bet there is no other household that has food sacrifices to critters like my household does. :-) My mom and dad are definitely a special bunch. 8-)

p.s. Thank you to everyone who sent us holiday cards! This photo is a bit outdated. We have a few other holiday cards that are missing from this photo.

What a lot of cards you got, Prints!
What a wonderful idea to offer fruit! It's a good thing that Mitch is here and not at your house or all of it would be gone. That boy LOVES fruit!

Love ya lots

Wow, that is a great display and it is sort of like one of those eskie conventions that Hana used to go to. The idea of food offerings is a wonderful thing. Are there treats for you too somewhere with that fruit? You have a special family, Prints!

Prints, did you paw get stuck on the 'puter and you signed in as Hana by accident?
When you looked at the post we hope you saw 3 pics of Knut, cuz mom is fighting with blogger lately the way they changed the way you add pics now. It is taking her twice as long to do a post now with the new format, and she just saw that one of the pics disappeared so she had to put it in again.
I hope your secretary is better than mine!

hee hee, we were wondering if you got the corn! We asked Drew, the guy at WBCL, to send you a bag! Mom says you might not like it at first and maybe your mom should mix it with your old litter gradually to get you used to it. I hated it at first, but now I pee in it just fine.

Pee Ess: I always flush.

We forgot to write....the place where you click to add pics to the posts on blogger is different where the pic are added, not like before....that is where my secretary is having trouble. pppfffttt, good help sure is hard to find!

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

I think you secretary has better skills than mine. Mine is afraid to change the format of my blog for fear of losing stuff!
The corn thing is serious, cuz we had Armani send the message to the guy named Drew over there. Drew sent us corn when Armani was peeing on the bed, remember that? Oh wait....you were still looking for your forever home then! So, anyway, he remembered us from that peeing problem! We told him you were a GoodCat though....even though you don't flush sometimes.
Tell your mom that we cats are very vocal and have lots to say! hee hee

You are a very disciplined cat to not want to play with all of those hanging cards! What a beautiful way for your family to honor friends and other animals!

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

We think it was a combined effort that got you the corn. Maybe you will flush with corn? heehee

Hi Prints,

We just received the magnet with Hana's picture on it. The buttereskie picture is my favorite. It now has a special place on our refrigerator.

Thank your mom for us,
Charlie
