Easter Cravings



I am living a life without chocolate. Easter bunnies come in dark, regular and white chocolate. I always get a basket with a bunny in it, but nothing I could sinfully crave.

Mary Lou will give me whipped cream, ice cream, cream cheese, Baileys Irish Cream (hehe, just kidding) and just plain light cream. I eat cheese sprinkled, crumbled, chopped, petrified yet still good and on very rare occasions, attached to traps and dead mice. I wonder if the little guys have a Rainbow Bridge..?

Anyway, so what do I crave? Something you can't put in a wrapper, shape like a bunny or kiss, or melt with marshmallows. It's the sun, especially this time of year. It turns my purrs into a melody each and every time. I will go out of my way to find a sunspot, wallow in the puddle of it and snooze, enjoying wonderful dreams.

Of eating chocolate.



Happy Easter everyone! May there be sunshine whenever you crave it.

--Tom

We love the sun too Tom but our most favourite thing is freshly cooked warm chicken - we don't turn our noses up at cold chicken either!! We also like ham and cheese. Mum is much naughtier as she likes wine and mars bars!!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Tom, you are so handsome. We have never had chocolate, so luckily we don't crave it. Now our Mom will eat the dickens out of chocolate. We hope you and all of your family have a super Easter Tom. Take care.

Sunshine is a very good choice, especially in your line of work. May you always have the sun in your heart. Happy Easter!

I crave anything and everything (except chocolate, of course). Peanut butter is a nice substitute for chocolate - as our chips and cookies and cheerios!

Your pal, Pip

"We love the sun and all the rest, but the chocolate, we are told, is NOT something a kitty should ever eat. That seems to make it all the more interesting. I wonder ...."

Ah, sunshine and forbidden dreams...a Cat's life, indeed.

The Baby scarfed down quite a bit of Mommy's choclate fudge truffle last night. She has always loved sweets, and Mommy made the mistake of leaving her treat unattended, heh heh.

No chocolate for us, either. But hopefully, mom and dad will give us a few extra snacks! :)

Happy Easter to you and Julie!

I love ice cream. I can have it for every meal...mmm. But sunshine is really great to have. I wish you a very Happy Easter!!

Happy Easter, Father Tom.

Thanks for stopping by Kittens 'n Things.

Hmmm, let's see what "The Boys" like. Not chocolate, although Chuck does. "The Boys" do line up for Hy-Vee (grocery store) fried chicken, and steak!

We're waiting for sun puddles warm enough that "The Boys" can spend some time on the front porch.

KarenMcG said...

P.S. You are a mighty handsome mancat! Love your markings!

Samantha, Clementine and Maverick said...

Happy Easter to you too, Father Tom!!
(((((((HUGGGGSSSS))))) from your TX furiends,

Father Tom said...

Well, another stomach-stuffing holiday has gone by the boards and, I must say, it was a lovely one. (Is it still called a four-course meal when a cat gets to eat out of four dishes all at once?)

So again, we hope everyone has a safe and sound week ahead. Our thoughts are with you and you know you can always count on us for those purrs and prayers.

Hugs,
Tom

Happy Easter, Father Tom! "May there be sunshine whenever you crave it." - Such a beautiful quote! Thank you! ♥

Sharyn said...

Sunshine is perfect for cats. That leaves all the chocolate for the people. You wouldn't like it anyway -- it's so messy!

Dear Father Tom... can you let us know about the email we sent today (Thurss 4/28)... THANKS!
