Saturday Art

Hi everyone! Thank you to all who participated in the friendly fill-ins yesterday. You can link up until Wednesday. I apologize that my linky  is not working, but McGuffy’s Reader is so you can add links through there. I don’t know why Blogger has no problem with the code and my WordPress hosted through GoDaddy does.

I have been attempting to make a button art cat , but I have a long way to go.

DSCF1405 It is supposed to be a black cat, but I need to fill it in more. I love button art- has anyone out there made any?

I hope this qualifies for Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop.Caturday Art

This one was hanging in the vet’s office, one of the vet techs made it and it sold for over $200 ( not sure of the exact price). If you want to see her other work, click here.

We are also joining Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

And don’t forget to leave a comment to be entered into Phoebe’s giveaway- she will announce the winner tomorrow.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 3

Hi everyone! It’s time for Friendly Fill-Ins. I look forward to all your answers. If you don’t have a blog, please put your answers in the comment section.

I came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

  1. Whatever happened to ____________________?
  2. I always ________________________ on Memorial Day ( or your country’s equivalent).
  3. I used to wish ___________________, but _______________________.
  4.  I just cannot _________________ , no matter ____________________.

My answers:

  1. Whatever happened to “You’re Welcome”, I get so annoyed when I say thank you and get the “not a problem” response. It just seems so snotty to me, one of my many, many pet peeves.
  2. I always visit the cemeteries on Memorial Day with my hubby, We put flowers on my Dad’s grave and my hubby’s parents’ grave, my Mom puts flowers on her parents’ grave,those are all in our church cemetery. I also visit 2 other cemeteries in town to pay my respects to other relatives and friends.
  3. I used to wish I could be normal, but now I embrace my wackiness.
  4. I just cannot make a dent in my reading list ( I have 754 books on my Goodreads to-read list) , no matter how many hours I spend a day reading.

Thankful Thursday Giveaway

Hi everyone! Do I look thin? DSCF1421 (2) I haven’t seen my Grammie since Saturday!!!!!! I love her so very much, I hope I see her soon. Mom and Dad are stingy with the treats.

DSCF1425  Mom’s Tiny Hats Book came in and she tried to make some. I don’t have thumbs and I bet I could do better.

DSCF1431 (2) DSCF1429 (2) The crown is OK, needs some bling though, but the Fedora needs more practice.

rednose  It is #RedNoseDay ! This is the best Mom could get out of us ( notice she is holding the nose on Joanie).

DSCF1423  I am thankful for all of you so I am having a giveaway. There is a catnip mat ( I am standing on it, don’t worry, I washed my feet). And 2 catnip ice cream cones ( they kind of blend into the mat). Just leave a comment between now and Saturday ( each day you comment counts as an entry).  The mat has catnip from Cat-A-Bliss on Etsy ( Purrseidon’s Preferred). If you want to buy your own nip, you can get 10% off with the code 15ANDMEOWING until the end of the month.

Tomorrow is Friendly Fill-Ins, here are the fill-ins for those that want to hop with us. If you don’t have a blog, you can put your answers in the comments tomorrow. Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

#WobblyWednesday

Hi everyone! Today is Sophie of Kitty Cat Chronicles birthday. Most of you know her, but if you don’t, you should go visit her. She is a special kitty that has Cerebellar Hypoplasia, but that doesn’t let it stop her.

DSCF1414These guys wobble too

Sophie’s wish is for all her friends to share a post or video about cerebellar hypoplasia. Here is a link to one of her post’s about it: click here

Happy Birthday Sophie!

 

Flat Tuesday

Hi everyone! Thank you for all the sweet comments and congratulations on yesterday’s post. And thank you Toby and Family for this great card:happy-blogoversary

As you know , Sammy is a Cat Scout. Last summer, some of the scouts made flat versions of themselves so they could visit each other. Well, they are traveling again and we have 2 visitors, Mango and Pete. I know we showed you Sammy teaching Mango how to eat corn on the cob, but here are some more photos.

Checking out some nip- we heard Mango was a flight risk so she needed to be on a leash.

We are Two!

Hi everyone! Today is our two-year blogoversary. I really can’t believe how quickly two years has gone by. When I started blogging, I didn’t have a clue about how to do it. I had gotten books out of the library and followed along. I had hoped to make money doing it (doesn’t everyone hope for that? ) ,but  I have made something better than money. I am thankful for all the friends I have made in the blogging world and through the blog. I would have never survived losing 3 of my precious cats in such a short time without all of your care and support. Thank you all for two great years and hopefully many, many more.

Today is also Dress up for Whitley Day hosted by Dory’s Backyard. Our friends at Lonestar Cats lost their sweet sister, Whitley. She was a doggie that loves to dress up. Joanie is representing us for this special day:

We have also been told by Toby that it is Lucky Penny Day! So here is our lucky Penny- I think we were the lucky ones to find her in our yard 4 years ago. She is dressed as a sailor because Fleet Week in NYC is this week:

Phoebe will be starting a giveaway for our 2 year blogoversary on Thursday.

Selfie Sunday with Phoebe

Hi everyone! You know how my grass wasn’t growing fast enough? Well, my Mom felt bad for me so she went to Petco and bought me some tall wheat grass. Then Dad put it in a bigger planter for me:

DSCF1344 (2)My selfie

I got to see my Grammie on Saturday. I love her so very much. I am very worried about my purrince though. He has been naughty and his Mum doesn’t feel very well. There is talk of him going back to “the farm”. I am praying he won’t have to do that. My Mom said he could live with us if he needs a home, but his Mum would have to agree and we would need help getting him because she doesn’t have a passport. Please send good thoughts his way, he doesn’t mean to be naughty, but he is a young boy and has lots of energy to burn off.

And now I am going to get a little revenge on Mom for all those photo shoots and for the future ones with those hats she is planning to make. Mom has been is some indie movies, and in one she is particularly bad and now you can rent it through youtube:

Some interesting facts about this movie:

Many parts of it were filmed on our property and some in our house.

Our dog was in it ( Katie, she went to The Bridge in 2011)

The guy that plays Mom’s son in the film, is the very talented Jamie Swimm who designed our logo and the Friendly Fill-In badge. He is also a cat lover.

This movie filmed in 2009.

It’s Caturday!

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop today and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade. And I want to thank everyone that participated in the Friendly Fill-Ins, I enjoyed everyone’s answers.

First, I want to thank Brian and family of Brian’s Home. About 6 weeks ago I won some litter on their blog, we won a coupon for any Tidy Cats litter up to $12.99.

DSCF1215 I chose the Lightweight and I used some in one box to test it. It does work very well. I also wanted my Mom to take the rest of the container for her cat. I think this lighter litter is especially good for her because of her arthritic hands. It is only 8.5 pounds compared to the usual 20 pound container.

Phoebe used ribbet today to design her art- she cropped a photo and added words to show her frustration of her slow-growing cat grass. phoebe grass

Caturday ArtPet Parade blog hop linky party is for all pets and animal lovers.

We were very sad to read that Toby’s cousin, Frankie lost his battle with cancer. Rest in peace, sweet boy:

Phoebe’s Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I finally got to see my Grammie and she brought me us a big container of treats. I lover her so very, very much. DSCF1330

Miss Piggy Joanie had to dig right in. I am very thankful for my Grammie so I am joining PepiSmartDog’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.PepiSmartDog.com, pet centric

The strangest thing happened to me Monday night. I had been in a deep sleep then I woke up all warm and toasty. I thought, wow, Snowball’s lion cut is growing out fast. Then I realized it wasn’t Snowball, it was the feral beast Brody. He was keeping me warm so I let him stay. Being that I am the boss, everyone else saw that and figured he is OK to stay. Mom used to shut him in the upstairs bathroom, but now it has been 4 nights and no problems so I guess he is OK as long as he remembers that I am the boss around here.

Flat Cat Scout Mango is still visiting, she wanted Sammy to teach her how to eat corn on the cob so Mom finally got some.

Mom asked me to post the fill-ins for tomorrow’s Friendly Fill-Ins Blog Hop, she came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

1.Everyone should read _________________________.

2. My first ________________________ was a _____________________.

3. My favourite time of the day is ____________________,because___________________

4. I think dreams ______________________________.
