About pilch92

I'm a happily married 44 year old woman. My hubby ( David) and I have been married for 21 years (October 24, 1992). We started out with one cat and now have 15. 15 is my magic number ( David may like a slightly smaller one), but when any pass away, I don't replace the one that is lost, but I do rescue another. When we got married we were like most people and wanted a family. At some point we both decided that we love our fur family. Some people are made to be parents of 2-legged children and we are made to be parents of those with 4 legs ( although we did have one with 3 legs once-RIP Brina). It has taken me years to realize that this is my calling. I want to help all cats any way I can. If I can write about something that happened to one of my cats and help another in the process then I will be happy.

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! We are joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfies Blog Hop

Some of you have asked about Gremmie. Him is good. I is dealing with a new kind of gremlin now.

Does anyone have a place I can hide on Thursday mornings? At least she gives me treats.

Mrs Potato Head is having some relatives over for dinner- Grammie is bringing potato salad. Maybe we won’t tell Mrs. Potato Head.

Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

  For my art, I am reusing this art I made of Lucy in 2015. She posed with a photo of my Dad in the Air Force and his memorial flag.

Thank you all for the purrs and prayers for Emmy. She is eating again. I hope she stays healthy, but I know the antibiotic shot has an anti inflammatory effect that helped Phoebe eat when she first had one so I am cautiously optimistic. I do think the addition of Trouble stressed her which could have led to a UTI.

2. The best part of last week was taking a big step toward getting a children’s book published-more details soon.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone. We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop

  I went to the vet Wednesday because I haven’t been eating much for a few days. I am glad I didn’t need an enema like Brody got last week. I got an anti-nausea shot though.

Mom wrote the poem  for Sammy’s Poetry Day to go with this photo:

Way above the clouds
is where loved ones are waiting
til we meet again
And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with the second two. We also have a new badge designed by the same graphic designer that designed our logo and header. This is a link to his website, Diverse Designing.
When Annie returns, we will have a new one made with all 3 names.
1. It is __________________.

2.The best part of last week was ____________________.

3. Every summer, I _________.
4. Once upon a time, _________.
And don’t forget tomorrow is the  1st Pet Photo Fails Blog Hop hosted by The Cuddlywumps Cat Chronicles.

 

Purrfection: How to Achieve Balance and Happiness Through Your Cat

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Tuesday Fun. We are also a day late, but still joining Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

*Disclosure: I received a free copy of Purrfection How to Achieve Balance and Happiness Through Your Cat in exchange for a fair review.

  I let Penny pose with the book , but she is still mad that she didn’t get to do her Penny’s Tips this week.

Purrfection How to Achieve Balance and Happiness Through Your Cat by Sophie Macheteau is a fun book that covers everything from cats in history to making your own feline totebag. . There are also instructions to make a cat notebook and t-shirt as well as toys for your cat.

There is a cat lover quiz and lots of information. Did you know there is a Google Maps for Cats? Iknowwhereyourcatlives.com

There is also a link for a downloadable audio of a cat purring- you know how calming that is 🙂 The book is also filled with beautiful cat photos too.

This is a great book for all cat lovers. You can buy your own copy on Amazon.

 

Mewsic Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays, and Mewsic Moves Me (hosted by Curious as a Cathy, Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.)

This week’s theme for Mewsic Moves Me is songs about Remembering or Forgetting. They don’t have to have Forget or Remember in the title, just in the lyrics.

  1. Strawberry Wine ( Deanna Carter)- 1995- One line , ” I still remember when thirty was old” –

 

2. Never Say Goodbye ( Bon Jovi-1986)-

3. Memory ( from the musical, CATS)-

   I don’t know why Mom thinks I licked her Klondike bar. My spark for today is “Life is Short. Eat Dessert First.” by Jacques Torres.

 

Joanie’s Traveling Cow is Leaving Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade. First, I want to thank everyone for the constipation relief suggestions for Brody. I am going to get some Mirilax today. He is eating again, but I don’t want him to go through that again.

Joanie’s Lucky Traveling Cow Moo is almost ready to travel. Last call to sign up for a visit from her. The Great One was here for a visit on Thursday so I had her bring her Dr. Kit. Moo received a comprehensive exam including necessary vaccines.

 

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 105

Hi everyone! Time for The Friendly Fill-Ins. Please leave your link here or at my co-host’s Four-Legged Furballs. You can also answer in the comment section. We should have the new badge for next week.

1.Happiness is _____________.

2. Ten years ago, I _________________.

3. _________ is the best medicine.

4. Most people don’t know that I _________.
My answers:
1. Happiness is living with at least one cat, preferably more.
2. Ten years ago, I was attempting to live a dream of mine, to be an actress. I got to be an extra in some films and a tv show. I was also in some indie ( means no pay) films. I discovered that I don’t like the repetition of scenes plus I am not wiling to move closer to where there are jobs. Also, I am not a very good actress 🙂
3. Snuggling with a purring cat is the best medicine.
4. Most people don’t know that I want to meet Nicolas Cage, that is the only thing on my bucket list. OK, you already knew that, but I like to remind everyone with the hope that through six degrees of separation I can meet him someday.
We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.
Poor Brody had to go to the vet. He was constipated ( don’t tell him I told you). He is still not wanting to eat so any prayers and purrs would be appreciated. I don’t think he wants to have to go back for another enema.
