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.

 

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.

 

Caturday Saturday

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

Everyone told me that Grammie is wonderful and gives out lots of treats. Well, she did give out treats, but she is a squealer.. She told my Mom that I had a mouthful of Brody’s fur. Then she said Sammy was better behaved than I was and that I eat faster than he does.

This is what I think of Grammie.

In my defense, Mom saw me chase Sammy when he chased Brody.

 

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

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

Phoebe’s favorite day of the year was Cinco de Mayo. Her Dad always gave her $5 for pole dancing and for the past few years, Grammie did too. Last year I knew in my heart it would be her last Cinco de Mayo, but I didn’t want to believe it. I used Lunapic to add a frame to her photo from last year.

Here are links to her past Cinco de Mayo celebrations:

If you haven’t already entered our giveaway for The A-Z toys, be sure to visit yesterday’s post and leave a comment on your favorite. Giveaway closes at 9 PM (EST) winners will be announced on Sunday’s post.

Yellow Submarine

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade. Today is also Y day for The A-Z Blogging Challenge.

I used lunapic cartoon effect on a photo of KaTwo posing with the crocheted yellow submarine. I like how it makes the submarine stand out. Monday is the last day of the challenge and after that, I will be having a giveaway of all the crocheted items.

I did not get a chance to bring Trouble to get spayed this week, but she will go Tuesday and I will have her FELV/FIV tested. Hopefully, after she heals she can fit right in. She is a sweetie, it is Sammy I worry about causing a problem, but I am hoping he will be more accepting of a female than he has been with Brody. Although, for the most part, he coexists with Brody.

Nurse Joanie

Hi everyone! Nurse Joanie here, Mom is sick, just a cold, but she is a big baby. I iz taking care of here.

  Here is her A-Z Blogging Challenge creation, a golden Snitch from Harry Potter. Good job Lone Star Cats and Cuddlywumps Chronicles -you both guessed it.

I am a work of art so I am joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. Mom will do her Thankfuls another day.

Ten Things of Thankful

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Ten Things of Thankful. And Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

My art ties in with The A-Z Blogging Challenge actually my crocheted Minion is my art because I am too lazy to edit the photo.

Much better than yesterday’s lemon. I am quite proud of this one.

KaTwo is posing with it. My poor cats have to pose with everything, but they don’t get to play with these items because I am giving them all away in a big giveaway at the end of the month.

Here are my thankfuls- all book related this week.

  1. Went to my first book sale of the year with a friend.
  2. Found some books I didn’t even know existed.
  3. Going back to the book sale today for half price day- 50 cents for paperbacks and $1 for hardcover.
  4. Bookstores- I went to Barnes and Noble this week and made a list of 12 books to get from the library.
  5. The library and being able to get books from any library in the region delivered right to town.
  6. My friends Suzanne and Dave sent me some books for The Great One and for me too.
  7. Kindle- I prefer real books, but I get some good freebies on there.
  8. My kitties like to hang out with me when I read.

These last two are self-promotions-sorry. Most of you know about these and probably already own them, but just in case there are new readers.

9. Spooky’s story was included in Black Cats Tell All. click here.To order your own,

10. Some anecdotes about my cats are included in Makin’ Biscuits: Weird Cat Habits and the Even Weirder Habits of the Humans Who Love Them- to get your own copy- click here.

 

Ten Things of Thankful

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

My art ties in with The A-Z Blogging Challenge. Noel is posing with our G, a ghost. I tried to put a black frame around it and ended up with this.

Here are my thankfuls-

  1. We had a wonderful Easter.
  2. Enough leftovers for most of the week, and I even sent everyone home with some too.
  3. The decadent pie my niece made with a chocolate graham crust and chocolate chip cookie dough inside ( not actual dough, but tasty) topped with whipped cream and drizzed with chocolate syrup.
  4. Thankful our church does food blessing for Easter, here is a photo of some of the beautiful baskets people make. Ours is not included, we keep everything wrapped because we are germphobes.

5, Another vet free week.

6.The Great One usually teases me when I want a kiss goodbye, but today she came right over for a kiss.

7. A surprise package in the mail with my favorite candy 🙂

8. I am thankful that I am more laid back than I used to be. My niece was so worried about The Great One breaking something and I just said, “she’d be doing me a favor, I have too many things anyway.” I remember crying over things my niece used to break like ears off of rabbit statues.

9. We got an inch of snow today- and it melted by the end of the day.

10.Hubby bought me a pineapple, I know that sounds odd, but I have been saying I wanted to get one and haven’t so when he went to get cat litter, he also got me a pineapple which was thoughtful.

Ten Things of Thankful

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

For mt art, I made a puzzle of Sammy in his Easter hat. I guarantee you that you can beat my time of 18 minutes and 9 seconds.

And here are my thankfuls-

  1. Thankful that my church still blesses food for Easter, we are going this morning to get it blessed. When I was a kid. the priest used to come to the house to bless the food.
  2. Thankful Lent is almost over so I can indulge in chocolate and Doritos again.
  3. Pedicure with my mom.
  4. Chinese food lunch with my mom after pedicure.
  5. Tallulah had her checkup and her mouth has healed nicely.
  6. The checkup was free.
  7. Emmy is always on my lap, she is truly a lap cat now.
  8.  One morning this week, my hubby got up 2 hours before me and when I woke up, Joanie and Emmy were on the bed in close proximity with no problems.
  9. A surprise package from a friend came in the mail.
  10. Hubby and I made horseradish, we do that twice a year at Christmas and Easter.

Ten Things of Thankful

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

My first thankful is also my art for the week. Online puzzles, they are providing me with a lot of amusement. I made one for St. Patrick’s Day with a photo I took several years ago when my niece and her cat, Nixon lived here. He is 11 years old now and doing well. It took me 19 minutes and 37 seconds to complete, I guarantee you that you can beat that time.

2. Thankful we only got 4 inches of snow on Tuesday, some places in Massachusetts got 27 inches.

3. Thankful a good cardiologist is only an hour away for Emmy. I am sure she would like one even closer, but it isn’t that far.

4. Thankful that Tallulah is recovering well from her big dental.

5. Thankful for a surprise package that arrived in the mail just as we returned from Emmy’s appointment. It was a pleasant surprise especially during this stressful week with so much going on with the kitties. Thank you to Rachel at Three Chatty Cats for all these great treats and for the kitty stickers she sent for “The Great One”.

There were even photos of adorable Harley enjoying his Tooth Fairy gifts.Joanie agreed to pose, but she called dibs on the 12 oz. bag of Temptations 🙂

6. Thankful my Mom stayed with the cats while we were with Emmy. I am always afraid to leave the house unattended for fear that someone would break in and harm them or they would get out and be eaten by coyotes. ( We had coyote tracks in the snow around our house).

7.Parchment paper- I used to always burn my cookies until I started using it.I made a batch of cherry winks for my hubby, but I used green cherries for St. Patrick’s Day.

8.Joanie is thankful that Mrs. Potato Head and Gremmie are friends again.

9. I am thankful for toys, “The Great One” and I had fun playing grocery store and vet clinic the other day.

10. A great nap that made up that hour we lost.
