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.

#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.

2. My prom was my junior year in high school, 1986. I went with a friend, he wore a Miami Vice tux. I wanted to post a photo, but every time I try to scan one it messes up my computer for when I try to upload photos from my camera.
3. The BEST thing about LIFE is CATS.
4. I cannot help save every cat, but I can try.
Joanie feels she hasn’t had enough blog time so here she is on my lap.

The Big Fork and Spoon

What are these for Phoebe?

Mom and Dad are having a giant over for dinner, maybe he will eat you Joanie.

I am going to go hide.

She is so gullible. These were in the kitchen of Mom’s childhood home and she kept them when the house was sold in 2003. She is thinking about painting them and putting them in our kitchen- I say she should just put them away and leave the 1970’s in the past with the avocado colored appliances.

I got my cup all set for Cinco de Mayo. It says ” Tips appreciated. We do not accept coins.”

Grammie came to see me today and gave me my $5 for Cinco de Mayo. It was morning though and I don’t dance in the morning, but she still paid me. I love her so very much and I would even if she didn’t give me treats and cash.

Don’t forget to comment on yesterday’s post for a chance to win the A-Z crocheted items which will be split among 2 winners which I will announce on Thursday.

I am off to work on my U poem- any ideas for that?

Shopping Around the World

Hi everyone! Today we are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop and  Bacon’s Shopping Around the World which is being hosted by our friends Kali and Shoko.

This month they asked for a seafood dish. Mom doesn’t eat seafood except for solid white albacore tuna and even that she has a love/hate relationship with.

Big mistake sending Joanie and Sammy to the store for the ingredients.

Tuna Macaroni Salad

Ingredients:

Box of small shell pasta $1.00

mayonnaise $2.99 for Hellman’s 30 oz.

5 oz. can of solid white albacore tuna in water -drained and flaked  store brand free this week with purchase of Hellman’s.

1 cucumber-peeled and chopped $1

salt and pepper

Directions:

Cook pasta according to directions on box, drain then add cucumber, tuna, salt and pepper and mayonnaise, stir together and chill in refrigerator.

Sorry, that is the best we could do for seafood. Mom usually shares the tuna with us too so there is less in the salad.

I got to see Grammie on Saturday. I love her so very much. I am going to see her on Monday too.

The A-Z Blogging Challenge ends tomorrow- any guesses on what Mom made for Z? She is very proud of it, there was no pattern so she made it up as she went along. Sometime this week we will be having a giveaway for 2 lucky winners to split all the A-Z loot.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 51

Hi everyone! Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins Week 51- next week will be a full year since we started them and we appreciate and thank all who participate. Remember to add your link at McGuffy’s Reader, you can also answer in the comment section.

1. A book I would like to see made into a movie is _________________________________.

2. If I could afford a billboard, it would say ___________________________________.

3. I have a hard time                              .

4. I really enjoy                               .
My answers:
1. A book I would like to see made into a movie is An Interrupted Life: The Diaries 1941-1943 by Etty Hillesum.I reviewed this book back in September 2016.
If I had the money, I would buy the rights and get it made into a movie. I found it even more interesting than Anne Frank’s Diary because Etty was in her 20’s when this was written and was trying to find love as more of her rights were being taken away. It is so good that I haven’t finished it because I know there will be nothing else of hers to read.
2. I could afford a billboard, it would say SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR PETS!
3. I have a hard time WITH ANY KIND OF CHANGE.
4. I really enjoy BEING HOME WITH MY CATS.
And for The A-Z Blogging Challenge, we have an x-mas tree, I didn’t want to take the Christ out of Christmas, but I couldn’t think of any other X to crochet.

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

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

I am reading several books, but my favorite is Theresa Caputo’s Good Grief: Heal Your Soul, Honor Your Loved Ones, and Learn to Live Again. I have read her other books and loved them and this one is no different. I recently discovered that her show, Long Island Medium is available on Comcast, I am a little slow being that it is currently in season 10. She helps so many people by giving them messages from loved ones that have passed. I even signed up on her website for a reading, I can’t imagine being chosen being that I wrote I want to be in contact with my deceased cats. I know there are a lot of psychics out there, but the part that impressed me is that she is still Catholic, but just happens to have this gift that she uses for good.

  For the A-Z Blogging Challenge we have a turkey leg for T. Any guesses on what I will crochet for U tomorrow?
