Hi everyone! Sammy has a trip today with The Cat Scouts. They are going to Lake Eerie where they will have fun playing water sports and taking a boat ride. Sammy wants to look his best for his special friend, Maggie ( she writes guest posts for us sometime).

sammyboattrip I used Ribbet to help him prepare for his trip. Do you think Maggie will approve of this outfit?

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 16

Hi everyone! It is time for Friendly Fill-Ins, it would be great if you could add your link top the hop. If you are too busy or don’t have a blog, please put your answers in the comments. We love getting to know everyone better. Our link never works so please add your link with our co-host, McGuffy’s Reader.


1. I wish ________________ would bring back ____________________.

2. An act of kindness that I do often is __________________________.

3.  I still have                           from my childhood.

4.  If I didn’t have___________________ , I’d be completely lost.

My answers:

  1. I wish WEAVER would bring back CHICKEN CROCQUETTES, I AM SURE THEY WERE UNHEALTHY, BUT THEY TASTED SO GOOD AND CAME WITH A YUMMY GRAVY.
  2. An act of kindness that I do often is GIVE COUPONS AWAY TO STRANGERS IN LINE AT CRAFT STORES AND MACY’S. I ALSO GIVE THEM OUT AT RESTAURANTS. I LOVE TO SEE PEOPLE’S REACTIONS, MOST ARE THANKFUL, BUT SOME ACT SCARED LIKE THEY THINK IT IS A SCAM.
  3. I still have STUFFED ANIMALS from my childhood.

Woofy, the dog is furless because I ate all his fur ( I was a strange toddler). The bear sucking her thumb was bought by my Gramma while she was in the hospital having surgery for a brain tumor. It brings tears to my eyes knowing how much she loved me to be thinking of me when she was so sick. I was 10 at the time and apparently had outgrown the fur eating.

4. If I didn’t have my HUBBY, MOM and KITTIES, I would be completely lost.

Phoebe’s Poem and Much More

My friend Toby saw my post on Sunday and decided to give me a gold medal on my bathing even though I was past the deadline- isn’t he sweet?

Someone ( who wants to remain Anonymouse) sent mom a gift card for The Tiniest Tiger and she was able to get these 2 beautiful purses. Mom was very touched that someone was so thoughtful. I know fashion and these are nice bags, they have cute little metal cat paws on the bottom and the black one has lace paw prints all around the top.

For P.S. Annie’s Throwback Thursday I have a photo from 2010, Joanie with Ricky the rabbit:

joaniebunnyShe had bunny ears on and was pretending to be a bunny too. Ricky rabbit lived to be 13 years old which is a very long time for a bunny. Throwback Thursday

And one more thing—the fill-ins for tomorrow, you know the drill. Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2:

1. I wish ________________ would bring back ____________________.

2. An act of kindness that I do often is __________________________.

3.  I still have                           from my childhood

 4.  If I didn’t have___________________ , I’d be completely lost.

We Are Winners of a Chicken Dinner

Hi everyone! Look what we won from our friends Truffle and Brulee of Sweet Perfections

DSCF2290

We won a giant package of Inaba Ciao treats! There are grilled fillets of chicken and tuna in a broth. They are vacuum packed and very moist and tender.

DSCF2300

There were also Churu purees in little packages. Mom has been letting Snowball have them because she loves puree. Being the good sister that I am, I decided to test it for her -until Mom took it away- phooey!

DSCF2301

We are going to donate some of the fillets to help trap the remaining ferals that Mom is helping with. Thank you Truffle and Brulee!

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! Today we are joining 2 hops, Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? This week I was busy with other things so my reading got set aside. I did finish Surviving Cancer, Healing People: One Cat’s Story by Sula, Parish Cat at Old Mission.*

DSCF2264   I chose Prancie to model with the book because she is missing part of her ears like the cat in the book ( hers were not from cancer though).

*Disclaimer: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

I LOVED this book and highly recommend it. Sula the cat lives at Old Mission in California, a Franciscan mission which needs many repairs from past earthquakes and to secure it for another one. The book is part of a fundraiser for those efforts.

Sula takes her job very seriously at the mission. She visits a statue of St. Francis every day where she learns of what her duties are that day and who needs her the most. She then enters the church and sits with those people during mass. As a Catholic ( somewhat lapsed) I enjoyed reading about the mass, but you don’t have to be any particular religion to read this.

Sula is mainly white and the California sun has not been good to her. She has had to have surgery for cancer on her ears twice so she doesn’t have ears anymore, but that doesn’t stop her from loving everyone and everyone loving her.

You can read more about her in this article :

Morgan Hill Times

She also has a Facebook page

or you can purchase her book on Amazon

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! I got to see my Grammie on Saturday. I love her so very, very much.

phoebebathing I am a little mad at Mom. She didn’t send my photo to the Pawlympics for bathing. Look at how cute I am? I would have won a gold. Phoeey!

Sammy has offered to do a selfie. He is enjoying some oregano, yes oregano, Kali highly recommended it so Dad brought some inside. It didn’t do a thing for me, but Sammy liked it. He smells like a pizza now- MOL!

Hangry Phoebe

Hi everyone! Do you get mean when you are hungry? Mom says I get Hangry and beat up poor Prancie, I say she is hangry too-what do you think?

Notice the baseball game on in the background. Dad watches that a lot, I feel bad for Tommy John, it seems like he is always having surgery.

I got to see my Grammie on Wednesday. I love her so very much. I will see her again on Saturday too.

For Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter J, I have written a poem about Joanie
Joanie is a cat
she is a brat
Sure she is sweet
and very neat
but with food
she is quite rude
if you have a snack
she will give you a smack

This photo was taken in 2008, sadly I am the only one left of the bunch in this photo. My sisters, KaChoo, Lucy and Stinky have all abandoned me.

1. When I run out of ___________________, I use ___________________ instead.
2. My guru is _______________.

3. I am afraid of                            .
