Happy Gotcha Day Brody!!!!

Hi everyone! We are celebrating Brody’s Gotcha Day today, but apparently I have the day wrong. I was just looking for last year’s post about him and I now see it was February 23rd.

Here is the link to last year’s post.   This is one of his first photos, he was scared and got up as high as he could.

This is him now , all relaxed.

And now Brody has some things to say.

Hi, this is my first time getting to write. Thank you all for being my friends and making me feel so welcome. I want to thank beautiful Leia for being my girlfriend, I am so lucky.

  And thank you to my Pipo, Minko and Mr. Jack Freckles for this beautiful card.

Mom said I could have a giveaway to thank everyone for being so sweet to me. Being that Dr. Seuss Day is coming up on Thursday, I thought I would do a Dr. Seuss giveaway.

   There is a catnip mat, a blue water activated fish and a Cat in the hat styled hat. All you need to do is comment on today’s post and you will be entered in the giveaway. The winner will be announced on Thursday.

Phoebe said she isn’t going to call me a suck up anymore- isn’t that nice? And I want to say that I love Grammie very much too!

Mom says I can join Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays Blog Hop because I am awww..worthy.

Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! I didn’t make any art for this week, but I have some art to show you. My friend, Jamie, the one who made my adorable blog logo and header, has been making some cool sculptures that he has for sale on Etsy.

This is a sample, he can make them to match your cat. If you are interested, here is the Etsy link.

While I am writing about Etsy, I want to tell you about 2 more stores.

Billy the Time Cat’s Mom has a store with crocheted items, pixel bead items and more. He needs some dental work so any sales will help fund that. Click here

I also just discovered that Toby’s Mom has an Etsy store with all kinds of items like vintage books and depression glass. Click here

Caturday Art Blog Hop

Two more things…….on Thursday when I recommended the show, Pushing Daisies, many of you commented that you enjoyed it too. I wanted to let you know there was a Canadian show that Pushing Daisies was supposedly based on called Wonderfalls. It was about a girl who worked in a souvenir shop at Niagara Falls and things with a face ( stuffed animals, figurines, etc.) started talking to her. It was pretty good too, did anyone else ever see that one?

And last, but never least, Penny and her box. All the dates everyone guessed have passed so I took the names of everyone that guessed she wouldn’t pee in it ( Pix Under Oaks, Messymimi, Renee, Miss Mudpie and Swiss Cats) and wrote them on paper, crumpled them and had my hubby choose one. And the winner is: Rene from It’s All About the Cats. Congratulations!!!

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 42

Hi everyone! Tine for Friendly Fill-Ins Week 42. Make sure you add your link at McGuffy’s Reader. You can also leave your answers in the comment section. Thank you to everyone who participates.

1. I wish _____________________________ would come back in style.

2. I always have _____________________ in my purse ( or wallet for men).

3. I think that I                            .

4.                                     is a pet peeve of mine.
My answers:
1. I wish normal length skirts and dresses would come back in style. Everything is either way above the knee or almost to the floor- can’t there be something in-between?
2. I always have cat treats in my purse, mainly for my niece’s cats, but also to feed any stray I happen to encounter.
3. I think that I am am allergic to MSG, every time I eat anything with it, my hands and feet get extremely itchy.
4. People not saying thank you when I hold a door for them is a pet peeve of mine.

Thankful Thursday and More

Hi everyone! I got to see my Grammie Wednesday- I love her so very much. And she brought me treats and said that I don’t have to share.

I am so thankful for my Grammie that I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am also thankful that a foster home from a shelter was available for me when I needed it so I am going to participate in a cool fundraiser that I read about on The Pet Blog Lady. A 18 year old dog named Morgan was in need of a home so the foster family is going to keep him. He turns 19 in March so they are asking everyone to send him a card and possibly a dollar for the shelter. I am giving one of my very own dollars and Mom and Grammie are too. For all the information, click on the link above.

And now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter K.

KaChoo
Mom’s first cat you were
you taught her to treasure every purr.
You were from a litter of six
3 orange, 2 tabby , 1 gray-quite a mix.
You preferred blue to pink,
your tail had a kink.
You were with her for 16 years
for you, Mom still sheds tears.
I am glad I got to know you too,
my sweet sister KaChoo.

KaChoo was a sweet sister, not to be confused with KaTwo-not so sweet.

Mom is joining Wandering Through the Shelves Movie Picks again. This week is the TMP Television edition: Super powers/superheroes.

  1. Grimm: Excellent show that is sadly ending after 6 seasons. Grimm is a homicide detective that can see the creatures hidden inside of normal looking people.
  2. Pushing Daisies ( 2007-2009): A quirky show that only had 22 episodes. Ned, has the ability to touch anything ( person, fruit, etc) dead and bring it back to life-but, if he touches it again it is dead forever.
  3. The Flash: Currently on the CW, I chose it because my hubby watches it so I do to once in a while plus we call Joanie, The Flash because she comes running from anywhere when she hears treats being dispensed.

Thursday Movie Picks

One more thing….The Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

1. I wish _____________________________ would come back in style.

2. I always have _____________________ in my purse ( or wallet for men).

3. I think that I                            .

4.                                     is a pet peeve of mine.

PS: Penny still hasn’t peed in her box- did one of you tell her about the contest?

#ChewyInfluencer

Hi everyone! It is Chewy Day and we are reviewing Nutramax Cosequin Original Joint Health Sprinkle Capsules Cat Supplements.*

*Disclaimer: We received the Nutramax Cosequin Capsules for free in exchange for a fair review and spreading the word about Chewy.

   

I decided that these would be perfect for Prancie. We don’t know her exact age, but she has lived with us for 12 years and the vet guessed she was 2 or 3 at the time she arrived. She doesn’t seem to get up on the bureaus like she used to. She gets on the bed because there is a stool there to help her.

Nutramax Cosequin Original Joint Health Sprinkle Capsules Cat Supplements come in capsule form, you just open the capsule and sprinkle it over canned food. They are made with manganese, glucosamine and chondroitin. She seems to like the flavor and finishes her food. It also seems to agree with her tummy, I tried something similar on Spooky years ago and it upset his tummy.

The reviews say that owners noticed improvement after a day, but I didn’t. She has only been using it for 2 weeks and I know from experience when we had a dog, that it usually takes a month to start helping. I am hoping it will improve her mobility, I will keep you posted.

If you have an older cat with arthritis, you might want to give it a try. It is on sale this month for $8.96 for a 30 day supply. Click here

And don’t forget Chewy has free 1-2 day shipping on orders over $49

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays Blog Hop and Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? Blog Hop.

I haven’t gotten any new books in at the library this week so I had to resort to my emergency pile. I have about 40 books set aside from book sales that I tap into in these situations.

  P.J. My Friend by Noel B. Gerson was written in 1969. The author tells of how he bought his daughter a tabby kitten to keep her company when she was 5 years old. They truly bonded and were together until he passed while she was in college. The only parts that made me cringe were when she gave him milk and people food. We know now that most cats are lactose intolerance, but back then no one thought of those things. Amazon has some copies for a penny plus shipping.

Joanie is here to wish you a Happy President’s Day!

Teletubby

Hi everyone! For today’s art, I turned Phoebe into my favorite Teletubby, La La, using face-in-the-hole. I have been getting dvd’s from the library for my great-niece to watch. I don’t know why they don’t still show them on television or stream them on Netflix. I think it is a cute show.

Phoebe has all your guesses recorded for the When will Penny Pee in Her Box Contest? Thank you all for your guesses, in fairness to all, we can’t take any new guesses. We will keep you posted.
