Hozzie New Year!


Does not our eldest cat look thrilled? We were trying out the various bells and whistles on our new Mac the other night and H-Dawg was handy for a screen test. I can’t explain why he (and our t-shirts) are backwards but it doesn’t matter. Hosmer is preternaturally cute, especially when lying upside down.

And oh yeah…Let’s Go Mets.

    Oh my God…he's fabulous….How could you not kiss his face off?
    Is it Hozzie as in voracious Jewish eater? or is it Hozzie as in Jose?

    He is adorable, isn't he? Doesn't really go for the human interaction, not like Avery, but you've given me the notion to go test his face.
    Hozzie is short for Hosmer, as in Hosmer Mountain Bottling, a small beverage company in Willimantic, Conn., some nice folks I did a story about a long time ago. The name Avery has a similar backstory.
    I like both your explanations, however.
