Plans proceed--HRH's diary entry

We finally got some serious work done on the adoption this weekend.

A messenger had been sent to the Queen Bea, Emeritus, informing her of the upcoming ceremonies, and We received her reply stating that she will be unable to attend or to receive visitors due to increasing infirmities.  We are so sorry to hear that, but understand that she has fought her miseries for a long time. 

Upon receiving that information, We are able to schedule the adoption ceremony for the spring equinox.  We hope the winter will be mild enough to make this possible.  It will be a long treck for Our Coco and We do not want to add to the risk by scheduling her journey during bad weather.

It appears the Queen Miss Catt is being most helpful to the Princess.  She is purrfectly right in suggesting, for example, that Coco may be most comfortable in the vole coat.

The Royal Chef has begun planning the menu and We will be able to begin reviewing those shortly.

On a timelier note, We have so enjoyed Hannah's visit.  She made the viewing of the Hannukah candles cozier just be being in the PM's lap for cuddling.  She will have to leave soon, so We are planning special treats over the next few days so that she will be inclined to visit again in the future.

A "Hannah"kah Visit

Today Hannah the Hannukah bear arived for her annual holiday visit.  Hannah is the cousin of General Boopsie Bear and was introduced to us by the PM's friend Betsy the first Chanukah after the PM converted.

Hannah always brings with her fond memories of Betsy, the wish to spin a dreidl and to learn how to make latkes.  We always enjoy her visit.

Dear Kitties,

Last night, the PM lit the Chanukah candles for the first night.  We will do this for seven more nights and watch them burn while remembering the importance of freedom and ability to practice your religion openly.  I am a Jewish kitty and I am so glad that the PM converted to Judaism so we can have a Jewish household.

Many of you are Christian and your families will also have lights for decorations.  May they also bring you great joy.
