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.

Butterfly Cat Scratcher

Hi everyone! Today I want to tell you about a great product from a company that has been in business since 1986.

* Disclaimer: We received a butterfly design corrugated scratcher from Cat Claws, Inc. in exchange for a fair review.

Cat Claws, Inc. was started by Bill and Gale Seliskar. Bill worked for a corrugated box company in 1986 and realized their cats were always scratching the samples he brought home ( in addition to their couch). Once they made these and added catnip, the cats preferred them to the couch and the business was started.

In 2006, they added Scratch ‘n Shapes to their product line. These led to the start of their retail brand, Imperial Cat in 2007.When Bill passed away on 2009 and his wife in 2010, their 2 daughters took over and the company continues to thrive by offering smart solutions for devoted cat owners. The company is based in Morrilton, Arkansas and makes many products right in the USA.

This butterfly is their newest design. And Sammy definitely approves.

It sells for $24.95 and comes with a big bag of catnip to sprinkle on for more fun. Sammy is 19 pounds, possibly 20 and it was plenty big enough for him. Joanie and Phoebe have enjoyed it too but Sammy is the scratcher king of this house.

#Chewy Influencer

Hi everyone! This month my cats tried Merrick Backcountry Grain-Free Real Chicken Recipe Freeze-Dried Raw Cat Treats from Chewy. *

* Disclosure: We are part of the Chewy Blogger Program. We received the treats for free in exchange for reviewing them and spreading the word about Chewy. All opinions are our own.

 

These treats were a hit or miss with nothing in between. Joanie and Brody gobbled them right up.

Sammy loved them too as well as Prancie

KaTwo, Phoebe, Snowball and Penny did not like them . Nine out of thirteen is still pretty darn good though. They do break up easily to make them easier to chew. I just fed them as treats, but they can be added to the top of canned foods too.

The ingredients list is short which is always good:

Chicken, Chicken Liver, Dried Peas, Dried Potatoes, Gelatin, Salt, Mixed Tocopherols (Preservative).

Chewy has them on sale for $2.72/ 1 oz. bag. And don’t forgetMerrick Backcountry Grain-Free Real Chicken Recipe Freeze-Dried Raw Cat Treats has free 1-2 day shipping on all orders over $49 so stock up on everything while you are there.

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! We are joining Book Date’s  It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? and Comedy Plus’ Awwww….Mondays blog hops.

I am still not reading any cat books. I did read a good book that was published in 1999 titled A Year by the Sea by Joan Anderson. It is a memoir of the year a woman spent living away from her husband when they were having troubles after their children were grown up. I have already ordered the rest of her books at the library and look forward to reading them.

I am also reading Bill Hayes’ first Memoir, Sleep Demons: An Insomniac’s Memoir. It is not as good as his latest one because he includes a lot of history of sleep and sleep studies. I wrote about his latest one two weeks ago.Click here.

  Here is an awww worthy photo of Phoebe with The Great One, Phoebe will tell you all about her visit later in the week. All the other kitties disappear when she is here, but Phoebe is a sweetie.
