It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! Thank you all for the birthday wishes yesterday, I am thankful for all of you.

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

Joanie enjoyed her week off and is ready to review Brian Tracy’s Eat That Frog!

How am I supposed to eat frog when this book don’t tell me how to catch it or cook it? I don’t recommend it.

Sorry Joanie, I thought it was pretty good. It tells how to stop procrastinating and start making goals. It is common sense, but so few actually do it, myself included.

I always use my Barnes and Noble Mastercard at the vet so I ended up earning a Barnes and Noble gift card. I got myself a birthday gift with it- Rescued Volume 2. I loved the first one and so far , I am loving this one too. I have only had time to read the first few stories, but they were all heartwarming. One is by Allie of A Tonk’s Tail, she had a very sad start in life, but I am glad she ended up with a loving forever home.

Now for my ten thankfuls

  1. My sister and the great one had an ice cream party for my Mom and I, it was a lot of fun.
  2. We won a great prize package that came this week (we will tell you about it in another post).
  3. I won a book on Goodreads a month ago and it finally came in.
  4. Fresh blueberries which make fantastic muffins.
  5. Spending  Wednesday and Friday with my Mom.
  6. I am thankful my hubby and I are home together almost always ( even if he is out in the garden a lot of the time).

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I got to see my Grammie on Wednesday, I love her so very much.

I am thankful that when Mom brought me to the vet Tuesday, they didn’t steal my blood. I just got a B-12 injection and an anti-nausea one. Mom talked to the vet about those and being that they are safe, I can get them every 14 days. The vet checked me and I wasn’t dehydrated so I didn’t need fluids like the last time.

I am thankful for The Crotchety Cougar Club, a place where all my older  lady friends and I can complain. Please read about it on Kali’s blog. And please pray for Kali because she hasn’t been feeling well. I am thankful that we gained two more members this week ( they are not listed yet on Kali’s post, but will be added soon).

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

Family
Some say family has to be blood
I tell them to jump in the mud
My folks and I don’t share DNA
but for my health they always pray
Brody may drive me nuts
but I love that little putz
Family are those that love you
no matter what you do

Brody and Prancie are pretty chummy

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for week 63. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. My favorite thing on my daily to-do list is ________________________.

3. I could really do without                           .

4. I would love to have more                                    .

#ChewyInfluencer

Hi everyone! Today is Chewy Day and we are reviewing a book. Yes, Chewy even carries books.

*Disclaimer: We received a free copy of Cat Daddy by Jackson Galaxy in exchange for a fair review and spreading the word about Chewy.

That not Daddy. Chewy sent us the wrong book, someone else must have gotten the one with our Dad on it. Silly Joanie, haven’t you heard of Jackson Galaxy? He is called Cat Daddy because he knows a lot about cat behaviors and helps solve lots of behavioral problems. Mom highly recommends it and it is on sale for only $8.68. And don’t forget, Chewy always has free shipping on orders over $49.If you are interested in this book click here.

This is his first book and is part memoir and part guide for pet parents. Mom read it before from the library, but she was thrilled to get her own copy. I am a little miffed she didn’t get us something to test out this month- phooey!

At least she left us the box. I am going to make a lemonade stand with it.

We don’t have any lemonade though.

So what, people will give us money because we are cats with a lemonade stand.

We are joining the Chewy Blogger Hop hosted by Golden Woofs and Oz the Terrier

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’ Awww….Mondays blog hops today.

Joanie feels she has been working too hard so she isn’t doing a review this week, but she did agree to pose with one of the books. But Did You Die? : Setting the Parenting Bar Low.

Eli of Coach Daddy has a story in this collection of funny parenting advice from several parent bloggers. I am not a parent to human children, but I still found it enjoyable and even hilarious. Eli’s story brought back memories of when my niece played soccer. I agree, nothing quite smells like sweaty soccer gear in your car after practice or a game.

Another story that cracked me up was about one woman and how she doesn’t like to read directions and usually skips part of them leading to some funny things. I highly recommend this collection. Here is the Barnes and Noble link ( I am not affiliated with them, but I like the store). This is the fifth book in the collection, I somehow missed the first four.

The Inner Life of Cats: The Science and Secrets of Our Mysterious Feline Companions by Thomas McNamee was surprisingly good. I feared it would be filled with the history of cats and facts, but it was so much more. There were some disturbing parts that brought tears to my eyes like the statistics for feral cats. It is in there though to help spread the word of TNR and getting people to fix their pet cats.

Throughout the book, he tells of his own cats. My only problem was that he lets them go outside unattended which I would never do.  Other than that, I agreed with his ideas and enjoyed the book. Here is the Barnes and Noble link

Phoebe’s Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! You saw how my perch was not level on Wednesday, well look at this one. Mom calls it The Leaning Tower of Phoebe.

It is a health hazard. And my Dad has been too busy gardening to fix them-phooey!

Thanks to all who made donations to my Purrince’s feral group. That was very kind of you.

I got to see Grammie on Thursday. I love her so very much!  Poor Grammie, she has a new purse and got an ink mark on it. Mom told her to put hairspray on it and wipe it off- it wiped it off along with the color of the purse so now it has a white spot. Then Mom tells her to wipe the whole thing so it will be the same color or put a patch on it- sometimes I wonder about my Mom. By the way, I think she should change this shower curtain from Christmas.

I want to thank Pipo and MJF for this beautiful Gotcha Day card.

   Thank you !

Mom got me a big bag of cheezy party mix, but I have now decided that I don’t care for that flavor. Grammie got a big container of a fishy flavor and I like that now.

I am joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Hop. I am also joining The Pet Blogger Showcase.

We are having a giveaway this week of a Kitty Kick Sticks- stay tuned.

One more thing- has anyone seen my shades? They have gone missing again? I think a snail could have traveled the country quicker than they have.

  1. I am thankful for the past 14 years with sweet Phoebe, she is truly the sweetest.
  2. I found big containers of Party Mix on clearance for $3.99 ( they are good until 2018).

  4. The first blueberries of the season from the garden.
  5. The weather cooled off today, the high was only 64 degrees- wonderful 🙂
  6. I got to see my great-niece 3 days this week.
  7. My great-niece is picking up words faster by the day.
  8. My hubby is a wonderful cat Daddy and caters to Phoebe’s every whim including drinks from the sink at all hours of the night.
