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.

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! Sorry , but Joanie will not be doing a book review. She has some trouble with her “gremlins”.

  Help!! They iz multiplying.

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awwww….Mondays, McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks and Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Emmy is posing with A Bump in the Road by Roby Sweet. I am sure most of you are familiar with her Miss. Cuddlywump’s Investigates series, but I am a little late to the party. I have been following her blog, The Cuddlywumps Cat Chronicles for a long time.

A Bump in the Road is the first in a series of five mysteries. I really enjoyed this book and didn’t want it to end so I am thrilled there are four more to read and Christmas is coming ( hint, hint Mom). Miss Cuddlywumps is a beautiful and very intelligent calico cat that is adopted by a 40-something year old single woman named Rory.

Miss Cuddlywumps happens to witness a murder in Rory’s front yard. She attempts to investigate it herself, but is caught every time she sneaks out. I am in love with Miss Cuddlywumps and enjoyed reading her efforts to help solve the murder.

And here is my Spark for the week. “A minute of thought is worth more than an hour of talk.” from the book , How Would Buddha Think by Barbara Ann Kipfer.

 

 

 

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! Sorry, I am a little distracted right now. I am having my daily allotment of venison.

This has been a boring week, my mom hasn’t even done anything stupid for me to write about.

Emmy wants to say hi, she claims she has only been sitting on mom because it is cold and she wants her heat.

We are joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop. I hope you all have a great day!

 

Veteran’s Day

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Ten Things of Thankful. I am reusing my art from 2015. Lucy was posing with my father’s Air Force photo and his flag.

Here are my thankfuls:

  1. I am thankful to all who served and are currently serving. I have the utmost respect for anyone who is willing to give their life for people they have never met.
  2. For scoring a 21 pound turkey for $1.32. The grocery store in the next town had them for 39cents a pound and they accept the $7 off coupon from their competitor.
  3. Hubby and I got to finally go to his favorite restaurant for a long overdue birthday dinner ( his birthday is in January, but he had a blood clot and then Phoebe was sick, etc.).
  4. One of our friends that lives in the same town as the restaurant met us there for dinner, it was nice to catch up.
  5. Coffee with a different friend on Friday.
  6. Lots of leftover cake from the great one’s birthday party.
  7. Emmy finally sat on my lap and has done it more than once.

8. Going shopping today with my mom, niece and the great one.

9. The great one already loves books, she opened some at her party last week and sat right down to look at them instead of moving on to the next gift.

10. Lots of great books that I am currently reading.

Thankful Thursday

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

I am thankful for this cage. I actually like sleeping in it between Mom and Dad. Last night my folks went out to dinner and Grammie stayed with us. She gave me treats and dad brought some prime rib home to me.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter V.

View
From this window, Brody enjoys the view
Sometimes the sights make him mew.
There are hummingbirds in the summer
when they leave it is a real bummer.
Soon we will see a cardinal and a finch
maybe we will even spot the Grinch.

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.
1. The best part of where I live is ___________________.

Penny’s Tips Volume 3

Hi everyone! Did you miss me? My mean mom keeps pushing me off for silly things like reviews and Halloween.

My tip today is to use a penny to replace a missing checker. My folks have this apple checker board and the apples are fun to roll around so they do need to use this tip sometimes. I thinks they should give me all the apples to play with and they can use pennies.

 

 

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Happy Monday everyone! We are triple hopping today with Comedy Plus’ Awww…. Mondays, McGuffy’s Reader’s SPARKS and Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Joanie will not be reviewing a book today.

I haz no time to read. I find 3 gremlins* and need to take care of them.

I have been reading All Hands on Pet! Your How-To Guide on Home Physical Therapy Methods for Pets by Susan E. Davis PT.*

*I received a free copy of All Hands on Pet ! in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are my own.

When I accepted the free copy of All Hands on Pet! I had no idea I would be needing it. It has actually come in very handy in dealing with Prancie. This book is filled with a wealth of information for all pets, although the main focus is dogs.

It covers many health issues and the treatments available. I finally learned what an Assisi Loop is, I had seen them in giveaways, but never understood why they are therapeutic. I also learned that reptiles can get gout.

For Prancie, I am using the spreadsheet for managed care to keep track of her medicines ( ear drops and thyroid pills) as well as her condition. There are many photos showing where to rub dogs for massage and therapy so if you are a dog owner, I highly recommend this.

And now for my SPARK this week, it is a quote I found on Pinterest.

“People who winder whether the glass is half empty or half full are missing the point. The glass is refillable.” I think it was a joke about wine, but it made me think about life in general and how we can add anything to our glass ( lives) so why worry about the full or empty just fill it with what you want.

*Please don’t tell Joanie those are not gremlins, they are furbies.

 

 

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! As you can see, I finally got a turn in the Haunted House.

Thank you all for the purrs and prayers, I appreciate them. I am feeling pretty spry. I also feel like a prisoner in a white-collar prison. My folks still make me sleep in a crate between them so I don’t jump around at night. They are so overprotective. I do enjoy being spoiled even more than usual though.

The other day, my mom told my Dad he was interrupting her conversation with herself. I think she has officially lost her mind.

I am joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.

I am also joining Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

Blog 4 Peace

Hi everyone! We are participating in the Blog4Peace again this year. Instead of making a new globe, I have decided to use last year’s with Phoebe and Brody. Now if I could only get Sammy and Brody to be able to sit that close.

 

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

Here are my ten thankfuls:

  1. Baseball season is over- I have nothing against the sport except that it is on almost EVERY day. And those men spit way too much.
  2. The Orville already got renewed for season 2. If you haven’t seen it yet, it is on Fox Thursday night, sort of like the original Star Trek.
  3. I found a great website with all kinds of free printables to help organize everything- from cleaning schedules, party planning, gift shopping, etc. It is called Iheartorganizing.
  4. Emmy sat near me and let me pet her.
  5. I got to see the great one in her Halloween costume, she had quite a few relatives that came to see her. I am glad she is so loved, if all kids were that loved, we would have a world of peace.
  6. I am going to the great one’s 2nd birthday party today- the theme is Teletubbies 🙂
  7. My toe is officially fine and I don’t have to go back to the podiatrist. I had a procedure done a month ago that makes that side of the nail never grow back- and it worked.
  8. Prancie continues to do well ( this should be #1, but I am too lazy to switch it). Thank you all for the purrs and prayers.
  9. I have a new Nic Cage movie to watch tonight.
  10. Chewy sent us a Halloween gift.. I am a ChewyInfluencer and it is so nice to be appreciated. I worked for the local school system for 13 years and was never shown appreciation.

Look at all these cool spiders!
