Downton Tabby

Hi everyone! Today is my favorite day, I can blog and not have to share with my brothers and sisters. Plus tonight Downton Abbey starts a new season. I love that show!!! I started watching it a couple years ago because I thought mom said she was going to watch Downtown Tabby -it sounded like a fun show about a Tabby living in the city or something. Well, after watching it a couple times and not seeing a kitty, I discovered it is called Downton Abbey, but by then I was hooked. I just love to have a spot of catnip tea and relax and watch the show with mom. I wish Grammie would come here to watch it with us – I love her so very much.

Speaking of catnip tea, I thought I would have a giveaway. Mom crochets these cute catnip tea bags: 001Just comment between now and Wednesday and I will let you know who wins on Thursday. I will send the winner 2 tea bags ( one will have catnip, the other, silvervine)

Don’t I look lovely all dressed up for Downton Tabby?

008I took one of Mom’s earrings and made it into a necklace. I love the styles from the 1920’s- I would have been a fun flapper, Phoebe the Flapper- I like that 🙂

So far a couple boy kitties want to get to know me, but no boyfriend yet. My friend, Stunning Keisha told me to play in the field for a boyfriend, but phooey, Mom won’t let me go outside. I also hear some Cat Scouts are looking for girlfriends, but Mom won’t let me join that either -double phooey! What is a beautiful girl cat to do? I need me a boyfriend for Valentine’s Day!

Have a nice week everyone- see you Thursday! And I am hopping:







  1. You are so adorable that you should have all kinds of us toms howling for you. SMOOCH. sorry, I just couldn’t help myself. I love. Smooching lady cats.

        1. Thanks for the smooch, but I can only accept it if you are not going to prowl anymore. I am interested 🙂

  2. Have you seen the Downton Tabby spoof? We can’t recall where we’ve seen it but we think some (very talented,unlike us) artist drew them! MOL!! Mom loves it! We’re so sorry we haven’t been visiting – mom just realized tonight that your address dropped off her feedly! Grrrr.

    1. Thanks for noticing and coming back to see us 🙂 Yes, we saw that spoof on Facebook- it is cute.

  3. Oh we LOVE LOVE LOVE Downton Abbey here too…….tonight’s the night! They’re having an ALL DAY Downton Abbey on PBS – all of last season then the first of Season five later tonight. I think your Mom’s catnip tea bag crochet goodies are absolutely ADORABLE and what a CUTE idea!!!! Your Mommy is very clever Phoebe….you’re lucky!

    Hugs, Sammy

    1. We didn’t know they were rerunning last season today- thanks for telling us 🙂 Its good that Mom can crochet to make up for the awful singing.

  4. What a fun craft your mom makes. And you do look do lovely for Downton Tabby viewing- it is always a special occasion!

  5. That is such a pretty necklace and a fun tea bag. What a good idea. Hope you all have a fantastic Sunday.

  6. Thank you for the Downton Abbey reminder! I like the name of Downton Tabby better though. Love your catnip tea bag. I had a spot of catnip myself just this morning! Nice way to start a Sunday.

  7. Phoebe, you’re so pretty. What a great idea to make an earring into a necklace! We all here can’t wait for Downtown Abbey tonight either. Your mom’s crocheted catnip tea bags sound like a lot of fun. You’ve got a fun, creative mom.

    1. Thank you, my mom wasn’t too happy about the necklace- she says I always “borrow” without asking-phooey. Enjoy Downton tonight.

  8. Hi Phoebe. I am incredibly out of the loop. I have never seen the TV show Downtown Abbey. I’m not a cat and dont have one here at home. I used to have a goldfish until the neighbors cat came to visit me one day, but I’d rather not talk about that. Your Mom makes some cool stuff for you. Tell your Mom and Dad Forris says hi. If I ever adopt a cat I hope it likes Alfred Hitchcock movies. Thats what I watch.

    1. Hi Forris, I think I met you when they were filming a movie here-thanks for visiting the blog 🙂

  9. Phoebe you look like a princess! We think you will find your prince soon! And our Mama LOVES Downton Abbey. She is very excited that the new season is starting tonight! She was sad when Mathew was “killed off” though!

    the critters in the cottage xo

    1. Thank you. That was sad being that they had killed off Mary’s sister not long before.

  10. My mom (and dad) watch Downton Abbey too. They thought last year was a little slow so they’re hoping this year has better story lines. You’re looking quite lady like in your necklace.

    1. You are like me, mom only lets me blog twice a week-phoooey- we need our own blogs.

  11. You know last year this time I didn’t have a beau either. I was matched up with Raz and OMCs we hit it off from the first time our eyes made contact. Maybe you should go on a few dates first
    Hugs madi your bfff

    1. I would love to date. Did you meet at Cat Scouts? Mom won’t let me join 🙁

  12. We think you are a cutie, Phoebe. We don’t have boyfriends or girlfriends. We just have fun! We do like Cat Scouts, even though we do get kinda confused sometimes 🙂

  13. Pheobe! Yous looks marvelous darling. And don’t worry about the man cats…go to the pawtys and then yous can dance with ALL of them without hurting any feelings!

  14. Um…you may think us strange but we have nevfur seen that show…really truly we haven’t! Meowmy doesn’t like those kinds of shows…she must be weird, MOL!

    Love your selfie, all done up to catch yourself a kitty-man!

    And Minko heard the Nip word…OMC!
    We would enjoy tossing that around our den.


    1. Everyone has different tastes, I am sure your mom watches some other good shows.

  15. Yes, you look lovely. Are you sure that Abby isn’t the name of the tabby on that show? We’ve never watched it. I still play with the ball you sent. It that silvervine? I love silvervine. Re: mancats. I may be able to spare a couple. Do you have any preferences?

    1. Nope, its the name of the estate everyone lives on. Yes, that was a silvervine/catnip mix. That is so sweet of you to send me a mancat, I only need one. I am like mom, I like older men and I am almost 13. I also must have a mancat that is indoor only and neutered of course 🙂
      Thank you for your generosity.

      1. Hmmm, someone older than 13 … My very special mancat, Buzzy, is older but he’s all mine. We’ve been dating on Twitter for 5 years. MOL! I love Flynn but I could ax him if he’ll take you to the dance.

        1. I LOVE FLYNN- I have a secret cruch on him. Do you think he would take me to a dance?

  16. We love Downton Abbey too. As we live in England we have already seen the latest season and there was a Christmas special on Christmas Day as well. It was really good! We’re sure you’ll enjoy it.

    Purrs xx
    Athena and Marie

    1. England has the best tv shows between Downton and Dr. Who. There are a lot of other shows we copy and remake too. I am glad the season is going to be good.

  17. Mom did a match cat post to get us dates for Valentine’s Day in the past. It worked really well, and you might get a boyfriend out of it. Get Sammy to bring some Scout furiends home with him. That’s how Lisbeth got her boyfriiend Charles. Thanks for joining and supporting our blog hop. XOCK, Kitties Blue

    1. Phoebe thanks you for the tips- she may have to try them.We love hopping with you.
