Goodbye My Sweet Snowball

It is with a broken heart , I am writing this post. My sweet Snowball left us this morning. She had been having health problems since May 15th, but I was afraid to write about them for fear of jinxing her. We finally had our appointment with the cardiac specialist today and came home armed with several medicines to help ( she had just been on lasix to keep her stable). And sadly, she passed away the minute we got in the house.

Thank you Pam for this beautiful badge

1. My idea of roughing it is__________________________________.

2.I never get sick of talking about ______________________________.

3. My youth                              .

4. My “golden years”                               .
My answers:
1. My idea of roughing it is when the power goes out ( despite the fact that we have a generator).
2. I never get sick of talking about CATS ( you knew that though) 🙂
3. My youth was a complete waste- I didn’t have a cat until I got married and that is when my life really started.
4. My “golden years” are something I have not even thought about, I try to live in the now and rarely think of the past or the future.
I finally got a good shot of Millie’s eyes, he has a blue one and a green one, but the blue ends up red in most photos.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop because I am thankful I got to see Grammie on Monday and Wednesday. And look what she brought me, I mean us. I love her so very, very much.

Pardon my winky eye, Mom makes me nervous because she is always trying to put medicine on my ear so I tend to blink when she is next to me.

Turns out, Mom is definitely feeding a cat, not a skunk. It is getting braver too, I fear our family may be growing soon. Mom doesn’t know if it is a male or female, but it does watch for her to bring food then hides until she leaves.

Here is my X poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day.

X is Useless
X is a useless letter
our language could be better
I want to toss the X right out
if you agree, give me a shout
x-ray will now be spelled like this
ecksray, the letter x we will not miss
Xavier can be spelled Zavier
come celebrate with caviar!

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

Wordless Wednesday with a Twirl

We wonder if Sammy did a “twirl” like Kramer did on Seinfeld.

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! I was planning to write about the Kindle book I was reading, but I didn’t get to finish it yet. I have others to write about though. We are joining Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? and Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays.

I loved The Penny Poet of Portsmouth by Katherine Towler. Please don’t tell Penny that the poems are not about her 🙂 The author tells of her friendship with a man in Portsmouth who was very different from her, but they had poetry in common. It really made me think how true it is that we can’t make assumptions about people. It is a beautiful story of friendship that anyone would enjoy.

I am almost done with Kate Mulgrew’s memoir, Born with Teeth. Many of you know her as Captain Janeway on Star Trek: Voyager. I have enjoyed this book and her writing style.

Next week, I will write about a cat book.

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! I am so mad at my Mom. She made me go to the vets on Thursday and they stole my blood again!!!! My blood pressure was good and my kidneys have not gotten worse so I guess that is good.

She is always telling Joanie, “One of these days, pow to the moon.”. Joanie is the naughtiest and she might get to go on a trip to the moon, that is not fair. I want a trip to the moon. Phooey!

Grammie was here Saturday. I love her so very much even if she didn’t give me any treats.

Hooligan in a Can

Hi everyone!   Look at all the goodies I won at Cat Scouts. All I did was guess correctly on which horse would win.

  I guessed #5 because Mom made this photo of me on Faceinhole.com and I was on horse #5. Isn’t that cool?

This can of goodies is like a TARDIS, much bigger on the inside. I can’t believe how many goodies were in this can.

  Look at all this loot- there were 3 packages- silvervine, valerian and premium catnip. Plus a birdy that sounds just like a real one ( Jinx caught it and delivered it to Mom). There was a ball and a spring and a tin of kitty mints and a laser and a hexbug and a pouch of food too.

Thank you Denmaster! I promise to share- eventually.

The good news is your folks can get you your very own Hooligan in a Can too from Cat Scouts. You don’t have to be a Cat Scout to order one, but Cat Scouts is lots of fun and open to boy and girl kitties, any age , from any country and you don’t even have to have a blog. To be transported to Cat Scouts to order your own Hooligan in a Can just Click Here.

And who knows, you may meet that special someone at Cat Scouts like I did with Maggie.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week #54

Hi everyone! Time for The Friendly Fill-Ins Week 54. The linky may not be ready at midnight like it usually is because Annie has been getting violent storms causing internet troubles. We apologize for any delay, but once the linky is up, you have until Wednesday at midnight to add your link so be sure to add it at McGuffy’s Reader. Thank you to all who participate.

1. I have googled _________________________.
2. I have________________________ on Ebay.
3. I think                                .

4.                         thinks                              .

My answers:

  1. I have googled myself, I bet a lot of you have 🙂 I always google questions about cat health too.
  2. I have bought and sold countless items on Ebay.
  3. I think that I think too much, I can never calm my mind when I attempt to meditate, it feels like there is a ping-pong ball bouncing around in there.
  4. My husband thinks I spend too much money on veterinary care- too bad, my cats are my only indulgence, we don’t travel or have children or live extravagantly.

Sammy got mail today, he won at Cat Scouts betting on The Kentucky Derby. He will tell you all about his prize tomorrow- unless he has a catnip hangover.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop because I am so thankful that Grammie kitty sat us for 4 hours on Wednesday. I love her so very much.

I am still tuckered from The Great One’s visit. She calls me  Fee, she seems to like my name. Do you remember my car that was Mom’s niece’s? If not, click here. Well, now The Great One plays with it and I think she is sending me a message- look what she put in the trunk!
  One of our toy rats.

Here is my W poem for Angel Sammy’s Poetry Day.

WHEN
Us kitties always want to know when
When is breakfast ? I am getting thin.
When can we have lunch?
I need something to munch.
When can we have a snack?
Feed me or I will give you a whack.
When are you serving supper?
Please try to hurry upper.
When can I have my bedtime treat?
I could go for a sweet.

We are also joining #PMTphotohunt @tonkstail , this week’s word is Kindle.

Mom is finally reading a cat book on her Kindle-Catnapped by Patricia Fry, she will review it Monday.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two. Please ask your friends to join in the fun.
