Phoebe’s 4th of July Giveaway

Happy Sunday everyone!  I got to see my Grammie on Friday. I love her so very, very much. I hope she visits me again soon.

We are all proud of Sammy, he passed his exam at Cat Scouts University and got a Certificate of Excellence.

DSCF1679  Purrsonally, I think the frame is a little much, but no one asked my opinion ( they should have though).

I want to let you know about some books you can get for free today through Amazon  from our friends at Random Thoughts and Observations. They have a poetry book, one on paying off debt and one on homeschooling.Just click here to go to their blog, you will see the links to the books on the right.

And now, my 4th of July Giveaway: DSCF1673 (2)  You could win a catnip mat with fireworks printed on it and 2 crocheted “firecrackers”- don’t worry, they are not the loud kind. Just leave a comment, you can comment daily from now until Wednesday- I will announce the winner on Thursday.

Cat World Domination Day

Hi everyone! I am sorry that yesterday’s post was next to impossible to read. When it comes to technical issues, I am useless. I think it is readable now, but still not the way it should be, all the sidebars are missing.  I am working on it though.

Phoebe was miffed that she missed Cat World Domination Day yesterday so I went to pho.to and made a globe collage of her. This is our entry for Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 7


Hi everyone! Time for Friendly Fill-Ins, if you don't have a blog you can put your answers in the comment section.

Here are this week's fill-ins, I came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy's Reader came up with the second two.

WEEK 7: June 24, 2016...
1. My feelings get hurt when ________________________________.
2. I am excited about ______________________________________.
3. _____ first, then _____.
4. One time, I _____, that's why _____.
My Answers:
1. My feelings get hurt when I send a friend request to someone I know on Facebook and they don't accept or when someone unfriends me- I guess I would be happier without Facebook.
2. I am excited about the Independence Day sequel coming out this weekend, although we won't go to see it until next week, it would be too crowded on a weekend. Every year, my hubby and I watch the original at some point over the 4th of July weekend.
3. Look first, then step- a good rule in this house where the chance of stepping in cat vomit is an almost daily occurrence.
4. One time,I was an extra on the TV show 30 Rock, that's why I never want to be an extra again- they are treated like dirt and work 12 hour days for peanuts. I was lucky to be visible when it aired because many times scenes get cut. Of course, if it were a Nic Cage film, I would love to be an extra for free- I will even wash the floors with a toothbrush, but only for Nic.

Phoebe’s Poem

Hi everyone! Today is the day my friend Sammy writes a poem for his blog. I am not an expert poet like he is, but I gave it a try.  I love my Grammie so very much that I wanted to write one for her.

How Do I Love Grammie?

by Phoebe

How do I love my Grammie?
Let me count the ways.
I love you more than treats and party mix.
More than window whiffs and sun beams
and cat grass and my daily nip fix
How many ways was that?
I hope you counted because I can’t
I am just a beautiful cat.

DSCF1656 (2)

My friends, Pipo and Minko wrote one to help me and they did a great job:

I love my Grammie
She visits and we play.
She treats me, too.
I wish she’d always stay!

I do wish she would always stay- we would have so much fun.

Mom asked me to post the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. She came up with the first 2 and McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2. Maybe some week she will let me come up with some.

WEEK 7: June 24, 2016…

#ChewyInfluencer

Hi everyone! Today we are joining the Chewy Hop hosted by Golden Woofs and Oz the Terrier.

This month, I chose Sheba Perfect Portions Grain -Free with Snowball in mind. I knew it was something everyone would enjoy, but Snowball is toothless so pate is her favorite and she can eat it at a normal pace so Sammy doesn’t have time to snatch it.

DSCF1502Poor Joanie, she is always the first to investigate when a Chewy box arrives, but this time, she got nothing. She can’t eat any kind of canned food without yacking, probably because she eats it so fast.

DSCF1640 (2)   Penny liked it DSCF1642 (2)Millie did too DSCF1643and so did Phoebe

And most importantly, Snowball loved it:

DSCF1517  Out of 13 cats, 11 liked it and the other 2 didn’t try it. My kitties tried the turkey and the chicken flavors , both were a hit. My only complaint was pulling the foil off the top is tricky and most of the time I got the juices on my hands-ick!

If you are interested, it is on sale this month at Chewy for $8.82/ case of 24. Shipping is always free on orders over $49 .

*Disclaimer: We received the product free in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are our own. e9637f75-2322-429f-b8cf-e87bee99673eAnd before we go, Joanie wants to show off her tummy today ( and her toesies too! )

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

Hi everyone! It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? DSCF1632  We just finished reading the 50 beautiful poems in Weeds by McGuffy Ann Morris of McGuffy’s Reader. I  have always avoided poetry because I never understood it in school, but during the A-Z Challenge, she had a poem for A-Z, many that she had written. I actually understood them and could relate to them so I decided to purchase Weeds. I am glad I did because I enjoyed all 50 poems, my favorites being “Willow”, “Requiem” and “Heart” .

I bought mine through Amazon , it is only $2.99 for the Kindle version. Here is the link.

I am also pleased that Sammy of One Spoiled Cat is going to be writing a poem for us every Thursday. We can also add our own poems in the comment section, Phoebe is working on one for her Grammie ( you know she loves her so very much).

We are joining the Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? Hop and Comedy Plus’ Awwww……..Mondays Hop too.

Happy Cat Daddy Day!

Hi everyone! The traveling shades are finally on their way! My Mom in a real dip though, I had made a great autograph book to go with them and she forgot to put it in the package.

DSCF1602 She has agreed to mail it separately, but not to Canada because she is a cheapo. Maybe if she wasn’t so busy telling Brody how brave and handsome he is then she would have remembered to send it.

DSCF1600Mom brushed him today, can you see the pile of fur? She put it outside with her yarn scraps for the birds to build nests.

My Grammie was here and she gave me a dollar! And we all had lots of treats too. I love my Grammie so very, very much.

Today is Father’s Day so all us kitties want to wish our Dad a Happy Cat Daddy Day!

catdaddy  He shares his dinner, reads to us and lets us cuddle on his lap. We love our Dad!

We are joining The Cat on My Head Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. Prancie , KaTwo and Joanie tried the shades on before they left. Brody tried, but they didn’t fit his ginormous head-MOL! DSCF1597 (2) DSCF1599

DSCF1595 (2) And it was Prancie hiding in the TARDIS yesterday– good job!

Hopping Saturday

Hi everyone! Today is International Box Day! My kitties love their boxes. Chewy boxes are always popular , but their favorite box is Sammy’s TARDIS he made for Cat Scouts.

Can you guess who is hiding in it in the photo above?

We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop this week with more button art:

DSCF1583  I bought some blank cards and made a horseshoe card for a friend of the family that used to shoe horses for a living. She loved it and is planning to frame it. I started filling in one of the larger cat ones I made, I was dark blue for the night sky and yellow for the moon. Well, I ran out of blue and when I went back to Michael’s Craft Store, there were no more buttons! I checked online too. I had other blue ones, but they are not the same and would look strange.
