    Since WW is coincident with Groundhog Day (in the US and Canada), I decided to feature Herman, a stuffed groundhog. I have had him since I was about four years old. One can tell he was a much loved toy – he was pretty much is his current worn-out state by the time I was about 8 or 9. But here he is several decades later. When not taken out for photos, he now resides in prominent location in a glass display cabinet.

    Wow, I wished I had kept my favorite childhood stuffed animal. Does Herman sees its own shadow?

    so is kitty hermans shadow? if so we see it. if not well, he blends in so well with the rug we almost did not see him and therefore no shadow; but we still see kitty !!

  6. Karl Says:

    I agree, it seems to be a part of the rug, but a cute part.

    Your kitty looks ready to tear this groundhog up if he says “More Winter!” I approve.

    I was late with WW this week; I have a new one up now :) Happy WW!

    We have a dog named Boppie that my father gave my mother before he proposed to her. Boppie’s supervised the sleep of three children and five grandchildren, while having been restored twice. He too occupies a safe and special place.

  17. CatSynth Says:

    For all those who asked if Herman saw his shadow – the answer is yes and I hope that means six more weeks the weather we have been having. 60-67F and sunny in San Francisco :)

  18. Karen Says:

    Oh…Herman is so sweet. I am happy to hear he is enjoying retirement, as a treasured stuffie.

  19. Beth @ 990 Square Says:

    I have my childhood stuffed animal too. I wouldn’t mind 6 more weeks of winter.

    At least the cat isn’t perturbed by Luna.

  25. Bellezza Says:

    We just came in from Florida, and are unable to pick up our kitties (and dog) due to the blizzard conditions in Illinois; I loved looking at the pictures of your cats. Even the groundhog! I miss mine so much. Cat, that is, not groundhog.

  26. JamericanSpice Says:

    I agree. Perfect WW for Groundhog day! :)

  27. Cats of Wildcat Woods Says:

    Happy Groundhog Day! Love Herman and Luna!

  28. Robin from Israel Says:

    Luna’s eyeing Herman the way I eye a brownie sundae LOL.

    My photography is available for purchase – visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!

  29. SandyCarlson (USA) Says:

    The cat seems not much impressed by the ground hog’s prognostications!

  30. Carrie Says:

    Happy WW! How neat you still have that!

  31. sammawow Says:

    What a great idea to feature your groundhog, Herman, today for Groundhog Day! I also still have a childhood stuffed animal that I received for my 1st Christmas, a stuffed duck. Today you wouldn’t know it was a duck unless I told you – Squeaky was a very much loved duck!

    Luna looks lovely as always! I featured China Cat today as she doesn’t like the cold and she would be very happy if Spring is really here in six weeks!

  32. Snowcatcher Says:

    Perfect to get Luna with Herman! Both look so content! If Herman stays inside, that means he didn’t see his shadow, right?!? :)

  33. Jill Says:

    hee hee :) Completely cute!

  34. Lisa's RetroStyle Says:

    Haha…no shadows there…YAY!

  35. Kitty Says:

    Luna is so classy and polite. She knows how valuable a childhood toy is and respectfully leaves it alone. :)
