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.

1, The Winter Olympics is going to to mess up all my regular scheduled programs. As Phoebe used to say, phooey!
2. I think the most romantic movie (and book) is The Notebook. And it doesn’t even have Nicolas Cage in it.
3.Recently, I had an odd experience when my friend’s daughter who has psychic abilities told me that my Dad wanted me to watch my health. I feel fine so I am not sure what he meant.
4. I believe that love is all around , you just need to keep your heart open.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday blog hop and Sammy’s Poetry Day.

  First, I have a question. Who told Joanie to have Gremmie guard her tent?

I am thankful that we have a lot of warm and soft places to snooze so I don’t need the tent.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. We were asked to write a poem based on this photo.

 

Angry waves surround
pirates pillaging the ship
no help to be found

And the winner of the Valentine’s Giveaway is Cuddlywumps Cat Chronicles.

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

Valentine’s Toys for Your Cat and a Giveaway!

Hi everyone! Poor Penny doesn’t get to give her tip today, but we are having a giveaway.

First off, I wanted to show you a deal I found at Michael’s Craft store.

  These were regularly $4.99, but were 40% off. There are 12 small felt hearts and 3 larger ones. They seem to be as well made as ones I have seen for cats. I am going to pull the small letters off the larger ones for safety though. I sprayed them with catnip spray and now I have 15 cat toys.

Joanie is here to display the items on our Valentine’s giveaway. A catnip mat, 3 nip knot toys and 3 of the felt hearts. We are also including an adorable little spoon that looks like a cat and hangs on the edge of your mug. To enter, just comment on this post before 9PM EST on Wednesday. Prancie will announce the winner on Thursday. It is open to everyone. Joanie is not included 🙂

 

 

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? And More.

Hi everyone! We are joining Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? ,McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks and Comedy Plus’ Awwww…Mondays blog hops. And because I love to hop (virtually), I am also joining Curious as a Cathy’s Mewsic Moves Me.

I have gotten to read a lot lately thanks to the cold weather and snow. I just finished Saving Charlotte: A Mother and the Power of Intuition by Pia de Jong. I read it over 2 days because it was so interesting and easy to read. A beautiful story of a family following their instincts instead of doing what the doctors recommended.

Unqualified by Anna Faris was a fun read. I have never seen any of her movies or her tv show, but I enjoyed her book and may start watching her tv show. I also enjoyed The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down by Haemin Sunim, a book that will help you to be more mindful.

I thought Emmy looked cute dangling her foot off the couch.

For Mewsic Moves Me, the theme this week is Country. I enjoy most country music except the really sad ones. Here are some of  my favorites:

 

My Spark is the song above, we should all live like we are dying.

Marg’s Animals had an unexpected loss yesterday of beautiful BG.

 

 

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! We are joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfies Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

Mom promised me my Gremmie won’t ever turn into the bad kind so I took the plastic off of him. I got him a skateboard to play with, but he can’t wear a helmet ( hims ears are too big). Does anyone know where to get a helmet for a gremlin?

Prancie keeps stealing my tent.

  I do not! It belongs to both of us. Gremmie is all yours though.

 

Ten Things of Thankful

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Ten Things of Thankful.

Today is National Wear Red Day to raise awareness of heart disease. It is for humans, but Emmy has a heart problem so she has agreed to wear a red scarf. I framed her photo and added the text on Lunapic. Unfortunately, she didn’t agree to keep her eyes open.

Here are my thankfuls-

1. Coffee with a friend on Tuesday.

2. Tallulah went to the vet Monday, she has lost a lot of weight. I am thankful it is just her thyroid which is easy to deal with.

3. Prancie also went to the vet, she got a rabies shot. I asked for a one year one so there would be less stuff going into her. We still don’t really know what happened to her a few months ago so I don’t want to take an chances.

4. Lunch and shopping with my Mom on Wednesday.

5. Bargain on socks at Macy’s, between the sale and plenti points, I got 6 pairs for $2. I love a bargain.

6. Lots of reading time this week.

7. Hubby and I went to the nursing home to visit his former secretary ( for 27 years) -she was doing well and the place is cheerful and doesn’t have the typical nursing home smell.

8. Thankful that my parents kept me safe from all harm, I feel so bad when I hear of kids that are abused in many different ways For example, all those gymnasts abused at the hands of a supposed Doctor.

9. Thankful for my warm home in this very cold and snowy weather.

10. A phone call from one of my friends who is a nun, it was nice to catch up.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop and Sammy’s Poetry Day. 

I am thankful that I can still jump up to the tall bureau this kitty cave is on. Joanie thinks it is hers, but she needs to share.

Poor Joanie, she watched Gremlins and now she is very afraid of Gremmie getting wet. She covered him in plastic to protect him ( don’t worry, she gave him air holes to breathe and eat).

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day to go with this photo:

Stairs leading somewhere
go up if you dare.
Nothing is that scary
not like the movie, Carrie.
Maybe there is a treasure
something you can’t measure.
Now climb those stairs,
I promise there are no bears.

 

Grammie has been complaining that kaTwo never gets blog time so here she is , helping with the blog.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie at McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two. Right now, they both have worpress blogs so they can’t display the link on their blog, you will be redirected to a separate page. We are working to find a new link service that is compatible with wordpress, any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.
