C is for Cork

Hi everyone! Today is C day for The A-Z Blogging Challenge. C is for cork toys. 

I found the pattern on the Animal Rescue League of Iowa’s website years ago. Here is the link, they have several free patterns there. When I originally found it, I made a bunch to send them and I plan to again when I have time to crochet more.

  Brody is posing with the box of yarn ( 50 different colors) that our friends, Purrseidon and Mr. M sent us. It is coming in very handy for this challenge. Thank you!!!!

If you are participating in the A-Z Challenge be sure to add your link at Blog Chatter.

The Catburry Bunny Auditions-Part 1

Hi everyone!

Yes, I have bunny ears on and Mom is going to pay for this. I do make a cute bunny though, don’t I? I haven’t seen Grammie since Thursday-phooey! I love her so very much, I hope she visits me tomorrow.

Sammy wants to show some photos of his Delorean he made for the Cat Scouts Cardwood Derby. He wasn’t able to get the photos up on the Scouts website so this is a first look. He wanted a rust vest to look like Michael J Fox, but Mom is apparently a little color blind- MOL!

#ChewyInfluencer

Hi everyone! This month we got to review 2 great products. I usually just ask for one which I did, but they wanted reviewers to list alternatives so I ended up getting the product I asked for and the alternative because Chewy is so generous. I am thrilled because now I have something else that Miss Pick, I mean Miss Phoebe likes.

*Disclaimer : We received Taste of the Wild Rocky Mountain Feline Formula With Salmon and Roasted Venison in Gravy  for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are our own.

I was afraid no one would like Taste of the Wild Rocky Mountain Feline Formula With Salmon and Roasted Venison in Gravy because it has square chunks of the food in gravy. Most of the time, my cats just lick the gravy, but they actually liked the chunks and ate those too.

Phoebe loved it ( and has for a few days )Prancie loved it too. And Brody And Sammy, he is on a special diet, but I did let him have a few bites to test it.

Joanie was even able to eat it and she usually gets sick after eating canned food. We ended up with 12 out of 13 giving paws up. KaTwo won’t touch canned food. The best thing is, the food is grain free and doesn’t contain carrageenan. It does have Guar Gum which I know some try to avoid, not sure why though.

Chewy has it on sale this month, for $16.56 you can get a case of 24 cans ( 3 ounce) , they also have 5 ounce available. And Chewy always has free shipping on orders over $49 so why not stock up.

Dr. Seuss Day!

Hi everyone! Happy Dr. Seuss Day!

Brody wants to thank everyone for the Gotcha Day wishes. He is here to announce the winner of the Dr. Seuss giveaway.

  Congratulations to A Wizard and Angel!

Today we are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that we got to see Grammie Wednesday and she will be back today too. I love her so very much!

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

Lips
Lips are to give a kiss
mine make me want to hiss.
Stupid rodent ulcer ,
I’m not even a mouser.
I wish it would go away
and not come back another day.

Yup, I have that rodent ulcer again. It is the same one which never healed all the way and when I got off the prednisone, it came right back. Now I have a liquid medicine called Atopica, it is for allergies. I need it daily for a month and then we will cut back. Mom was glad that I gained 6 ounces because she thought I was too thin before. The worst part of going to the vet was that Millie had to go for a thyroid checkup and he doesn’t travel well. He always poops- it was not a fun ride, good thing it wasn’t too cold because Mom had to open a window.

Mom is joining Wandering Through the Shelves Thursday Movie Picks. This week is “On the Run”. Here are her choices:

  1. The Fugitive ( 1993)- I think this is Harrison Ford’s best film, he plays a Dr. accused of murdering his wife. He goes on the run to find the one-armed man who did it.
  2. Splash ( 1984)- Tom Hanks falls in love with a mermaid ( Daryl Hannah) and they are on the run because scientists want to capture her to study her.
  3. Double Jeopardy ( 1999)- One of my favorite movies, Ashley Judd’s husband fakes his murder and she goes to jail for it. Once released, she is determined to find her son and prove her innocence.

And last, but not least are the fill-ins, Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2. Please pray for their sweet Maggie as she is going to be having exploratory surgery soon.

Fill-ins:
1. My favorite herb or spice is __________________.
2. An herb/spice I dislike is ________________.
3.Lately, I have been working on                               .

4.This Winter was                                    .

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.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are going to do lots of hops today. First off, we are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that I got to see my Grammie on Wednesday, I love her so very much. Brody is thankful too because Leia said yes to being his Valentine. If you missed her post, click here. thankfulthursdaybadge

And I am thankful for my purrince, he sent me a beautiful Valentine’s card with a lovely poem in it. I am such a lucky girl.

I am also joining Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter I.

Indoor Only
I am an indoor cat
I am happy about that.
I don’t have to worry about getting hit by a truck
that would really suck.
I won’t get stuck up in a tree
or get stung by a bee.
I wish you all would all stay in the house
even if it means not catching a mouse.

POETRYSAMBADGE

One of our blogging friends, Curious as a Cathy, let us know about a fun hop on Wandering Through the Shelves. Each week you name 3 movies that go with the theme. Mom used to watch a lot of movies, not as many lately though, but she thought this would be fun. The theme this week is genius/prodigy.Here are our choices:

  1. A Beautiful Mind (2001) : Russell Crowe as brilliant mathematician John Nash who also suffers from severe mental illness.
  2. The Theory of Everything ( 2014): Movie about the life of the famous physicist Stephen Hawking.
  3. Snowden (2016): Movie about Edward Snowden and how he revealed NSA’s illegal surveillance techniques. Not sure if he is considered a genius, but after seeing the film and knowing how well he could program computers, he is a genius in my book.

And now what you have been waiting to know- the winner of the first water activated fish is: Friends Forever! Congratulations to Allie, Ellie and Raz. I will have another giveaway soon for the other one and I am begging my Mom to order more being that they are so popular.

One more thing…the Friendly Fill-Ins for Friday. Mom came up with the 1st two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the 2nd two.

1. My favorite kind of cookie is _______________________.
2. ___________________________ would play me in a movie about my life.

3. Love is                            .

4. For Valentine’s Day, I                                .
