Animal Hearted

Hi everyone! It is getting to be t-shirt weather which is the perfect time to stock up on some cute cat t-shirts.

*Disclaimer: We received a $40 gift card to Animal Hearted in exchange for spreading the word about their products.

These are some of my favorites:

 

They also have specific breeds too:

And they don’t just have cat products, they have dogs, alpacas, frogs, chickens and guinea pigs too!  The best part is they donate 25% of proceeds to animal charities, they have a list of them on their website.

I used my gift card for the black cat shirt and also some items for a giveaway.

Just leave a comment on today’s post for a chance to win these goodies which include a bag, 2 car magnets and a key chain. Phoebe will announce the winner on Thursday.

And be sure to check out their website. Click Here

And for the A-Z challenge we have O for Octopus.

Today is one year since Spooky left us, we miss him every day.

Me-YEOW!

Hi everyone! Today we are joining Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? and Comedy Plus’ Aww…..Mondays blog hops. We are thrilled to announce that Me-YEOW! has been released and is available for your enjoyment.

I am a big fan of Jeanne Foguth’s Sea Purrtector Files series. I have reviewed the other books here and here.

100_9958

Me-YEOW! is the 4th book in the series and the best one yet. Of course, I am biased because this one is dedicated to Spooky who left us in April. There is even a character in the book based on him. If you are not familiar with the series, it is best described as a James Bond story with cats. Xander would be James Bond and he works for Catamondo. They send him to India this time to investigate the leftover clones from the last book. I am sure you will enjoy, you can get yours for $2.99 on Smashwords. Click here or you can get the Kindle version or a paperback on Amazon.

100_9959Spooky’s photo is on the back cover.

Thank you Jeanne Foguth for dedicating this to our special boy, he is missed.

Another Hopping Monday/ #JHC Day 3

Hi everyone! We are doing lots of hopping today. There is a new hop the first and third weekends of the month called The Pet Blogger Showcase, our friend Bear is a co-host.

Brody hopes he is Awww…worthy for Comedy Plus’ Awwww….Mondays hop, he is also posing with one of the books I am currently reading for The Book Date’s It’s Monday! What are YOU Reading? hop.

dscf2645  I thought this book was most appropriate for Rosh Hashanah. Manischewitz, The Matzo Family: The Making of an American Jewish Icon by Laura Manischewitz Alpern tells the story of an immigrant family that started making and selling matzo crackers in 1888, eventually building an empire selling many Jewish foods.Surprisingly, the family has not owned the company since 1991. I am not Jewish, but I love to make matzo ball soup and this is the only brand of matzo meal I will use. Everyone loves my soup, even my little great niece.

Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day

Hi everyone! Phoebe’ s post has been preempted today for Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day. Last year, when we first posted on this day, I had no idea that soon after 3 of my furbabies would be at The Rainbow Bridge for this year’s remembrance day.

Thank you to Ann of Zoolatry for these beautiful graphics and for always making a special one for each pet that leaves us. And thank you to Deb Barnes of Zee and Zoey for creating this special day to remember our beloved pets ( not that we would ever forget).

Black Cat Appreciation Day

Hi everyone! Today is Black Cat Appreciation Day and I sure do appreciate my black cats as well as all the other ones too.

Before I write about them I must thank my husband. Yesterday, my crappy computer Dell decided it was done working for me. I had it for only 13 months and only used it for about 8 months. I was typing and it shut off and wouldn’t go back on again. My husband was at the grocery store so I called him and asked him if he could pick up something at Walmart for me on his way home. When I told him it was a laptop he didn’t even sound surprised and came home with one. He never reads my blog because he doesn’t do anything on the computer, but I wanted to say how lucky I am.

I am still learning how to use the new computer so I am using photos that were already in my WordPress.

Mancat Monday

Hi everyone ! I thought I would do a Mancat Monday with a Brody update.

Brody A lot of times, he can be spotted peaking from the top of the steps.

He basically lives in the upstairs bathroom which is quite small. I open the door every morning and close it before bed.  Throughout the day, he will venture down and try to befriend the others only to be met with hisses. Last week, my hubby claims that Brody attacked his princess, Prancie. He squirted him with the spray bottle and he came right back after her. I honestly think he was attempting to play. Unfortunately, now the hubby doesn’t like him. Spooky had hissed at him about 2 weeks before he left us. My hubby is taking Spooky’s passing very hard and I think he feels like he would be betraying Spooky to make friends with Brody. I mentioned that and he said he just doesn’t like that cat.( No worries, Brody is here to stay so they will have to coexist).

brodyandmillie   Brody and Millie visit each other through the screen door a lot. I am afraid to let them be together though because Millie likes to attack and I don’t want him to teach bad things to Brody.

Brody is braver with me and will eat in front of me. For several weeks, he wouldn’t even look at the food if I was there. When he is downstairs though, he runs the minute I move at all. I am wondering if I should just keep being patient and  hoping things will work out or if I should crate him ( I have a large crate with plenty of room for a litter box). I would keep him in the living room and hopefully the others would get used to him and accept him. I appreciate any advice. Thank you.

I also bought a Feliway diffuser for multi-cat homes. I probably need about 5, but I got one for the living room to start. The vet assured me they are better and don’t get as hot  (I tossed my last one because I was afraid of a fire). Brody3Isn’t he a cutie?

My Purrince wrote me another poem this week. Here it is:

phoebepartymix Look what Grammie gave me!! She knew how sad I am about Spooky so she brought me us a 20 ounce container of Party mIx and she gave ME $5 !!! I love my Grammie so very, very, very much!
And look what I found:phoebepurpleMom had it, it says Purple Rain on it by Prince. I think it is a frisbee, I know Mom doesn’t play frisbee so she probably won’t care if I sell it on Ebay ( shh! don’t tell her just in case she minds).
I hope these photos can count for my selfies today so I can join The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfies Blog Hop.

Thank you Spooky

Thank you Spooky for choosing us to be your last home. Your original Mom who went to Heaven 10 years ago always said you were “a love” and I can’t think of a better description for you. You truly were a love and we will miss you forever.

Spooky FOREVER And thank you Ann for this beautiful badge. Also, thank you to all of you that have left comments, I will respond to you individually soon. I am so blessed to have so many people that care.

Phoebe’s Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! As you can see, I am writing today so Spooky is holding on ( knock on wood, 3 times). Mom decided to syringe feed him the Gerber’s baby food- thanks to all who recommended the baby food and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader for recommending using the syringe with it.  She didn’t want to force feed him, but he doesn’t spit it out or move away so he must not mind. He had about 1/2 of the jar over the course of the day. He is taking the cerenia for nausea so hopefully it is helping.

 

 

 

Mom read that it takes at least a week for that anemia injection to work and it has only been a few days so she is going to keep feeding him like this. Please keep praying, he is very frail and thin, but if he doesn’t want to give up, we won’t either.

I saw my Grammie Thursday, I love her so very much. She brought us a big bag of treats with the hope Spooky would want some, but he didn’t . I hope I get to see her this week, but she is so busy with her GREAT granddaughter that I am forgotten- phooey!

The winner of our Passsover giveaway is My Purrince, well actually it is the dog, Noodle from The Adventures of Noodle. Now that we can only offer giveaways in the US because every country has different rules and we don’t know them all, my Purrince entered his buddy Noodle’s name because he lives with cats too. I hope Noodle can at least wear the kippa because I don’t think he will like the catnip stuff.

We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Selfie Sunday Blog Hop.I hope this can count as my selfie because for some reason our photos won’t load-phooey! See you tomorrow for the letter O and another giveaway to go with it.
