Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone? How do I look?

Did I fool you? That is my flat Phoebe, I am up here hiding from Mom. Do you think she will be fooled and put the ear medicine on flat Phoebe? Sure, it beats the pills, but it feels funny.

I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that I got to see Grammie on Monday and Thursday. I love her so very much!!!

And now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day,featuring the letter O. My poem is titled Old.

Old
My Mom is pretty bold
she said I was getting old.
Can she put her foot behind her head?
If she tried, she’d need a week in bed.
Can she climb to the top of my tree?
She would definitely hurt her knee.
She needs to be told
she is the one that is getting old.

We are also joining Wandering Through the Shelves Thursday Movie Picks Blog Hop this week’s theme is The Underdog.

  1. It’s a Wonderful Life (1946):  Poor George Bailey can’t seem to catch a break, especially from that evil Mr. Potter.
  2. Bridget Jones’s Diary ( 2001): Poor Bridget is single, overweight and pestered by her Mum to get a boyfriend. Despite being far from perfect, she is very lovable.
  3. Love Potion #9 (1992): Sandra Bullock plays a geeky biologist who starts to get a lot of male attention when she discovers the power of Love Potion #9.

And we can’t forget the Friendly Fill-ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1.In the Spring, I look forward to _____________________________________.
2. I would love to have a ___________________________ party.
3. Few know this about me, but                                          .

4. No one                              .

 

Saturday Art

Hi everyone! Today we are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. As most of you know, Sammy is a Cat Scout and several of them have flat versions of themselves for traveling to visit one another. Last week, Flat Sammy was missing so I decided to put his photo on a milk carton and display it on the Cat Scouts website.

flatsammy  I used ImageChef, I had never tried that

editor before, but it was idiot proof ( I could do it 🙂 ). And Flat Sammy has been located and is now visiting with Timmy Tomcat’s family.

Phoebe will see you tomorrow.

Phoebe’s Poetry

Hi everyone! It has been a tough week, I haven’t seen my Grammie all week. I love her so very much. My poem will explain why I haven ‘t seen her.

DSCF2097 Apparently Mom is following the advice of the book she recommended the other day- The Joy of Leaving Your Sh*t All Over the Place.

I was so happy yesterday morning. Mom put Brody in a carrier and I thought she was bringing him to a new home, but he just went for his rabies shot. It has been 5 months since he was rescued so he was allowed to get his rabies shot. Mom also retested for FELV/FIV and that was negative. She is still waiting on heartworm results. He got basic blood work too and that was good.

Flat Scouts Maggie and Felix are visiting. They made this for their Mom

Today is my friend, Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter G, mine is titled The Great One ( that is what I call Grammie’s Great grand-daughter) .

Great one, you have been here almost  9 months
and I have only met you once.
My Grammie you have stolen
and that upsets my colon
All you do is drool
I can’t wait ’til your old enough for school
then I can have my Grammie back.

And that is why I never get to see my Grammie!!! Phooey!

Mom asked me to give you the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. She came up with the first 2 and our friend, Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

1. One quirk I have is ___________________.

2. My favorite comic strip is ________________________.

3. I am really happy                                           .
4. If I could go anywhere on a road trip, I would go to                                .

Flat Tuesday

Hi everyone! Thank you for all the sweet comments and congratulations on yesterday’s post. And thank you Toby and Family for this great card:happy-blogoversary

As you know , Sammy is a Cat Scout. Last summer, some of the scouts made flat versions of themselves so they could visit each other. Well, they are traveling again and we have 2 visitors, Mango and Pete. I know we showed you Sammy teaching Mango how to eat corn on the cob, but here are some more photos.

Checking out some nip- we heard Mango was a flight risk so she needed to be on a leash.

Phoebe’s Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I finally got to see my Grammie and she brought me us a big container of treats. I lover her so very, very much. DSCF1330

Miss Piggy Joanie had to dig right in. I am very thankful for my Grammie so I am joining PepiSmartDog’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.PepiSmartDog.com, pet centric

The strangest thing happened to me Monday night. I had been in a deep sleep then I woke up all warm and toasty. I thought, wow, Snowball’s lion cut is growing out fast. Then I realized it wasn’t Snowball, it was the feral beast Brody. He was keeping me warm so I let him stay. Being that I am the boss, everyone else saw that and figured he is OK to stay. Mom used to shut him in the upstairs bathroom, but now it has been 4 nights and no problems so I guess he is OK as long as he remembers that I am the boss around here.

Flat Cat Scout Mango is still visiting, she wanted Sammy to teach her how to eat corn on the cob so Mom finally got some.

Mom asked me to post the fill-ins for tomorrow’s Friendly Fill-Ins Blog Hop, she came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

1.Everyone should read _________________________.

2. My first ________________________ was a _____________________.

3. My favourite time of the day is ____________________,because___________________

4. I think dreams ______________________________.

U is for Under the Paw

Hi everyone! Today is U day in the A-Z Blogging Challenge. I am recommending Under the Paw: Confessions of a Cat Man  by Tom Cox. He lives in England and has written four books about life with his cats, this is the first of the four books. They are mostly funny, but you may cry a little too ( I did).

Sammy has a Cat Scout friend visiting. Flat Mango, has been here for over a week. I feel bad that we haven’t had much fun, but this week we will. Here is Phoebe telling her all about her Purrince:blog1 and here is Sammy sharing a snack with her: blog3

 

Black Cat Themed Giveaway

Happy Monday everyone! Monday is fun and games day and we also have a black cat themed giveaway. I love to decorate for Halloween and my 4 black cats are the best decorations- year round.

I bought a kit at Michael’s to make a black cat out of beads that melt. Flat Scout Charles helped me when he was staying with us.003It looked so simple, you follow the diagram and place the beads on the orange board. Then you cover it with the special paper that came in the kit and run your iron over it. The beads melt together and you have a cat- NOT! 003As you can see, many of the pieces didn’t melt and fell apart. Luckily, I know someone who is a pro at this and she has an Etsy store. Billy the Time Cat’s Mom makes all kinds of items from magnets to coasters and Billy recently modeled for some. You can check it out at the link:TCA shop . Billy’s Mom uses the money she earns with the store to pay for his insulin.

Now for the giveaway- Spooky is modeling with the loot.

014

A catnip mat ( black cat print on purple) , black cat socks, a mini book with a black cat, a cookie cutter , a black cat pin and your very own bead kit to make a black cat. I will also include some crocheted catnip toys. Just comment today through Wednesday – winner will be announced Thursday. Comment every day for more chances. Good luck!017

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! Selfie Sunday ,but first I will get you all caught up. Flat Charles left Friday, we all miss him. We were all sad to see him leave-even Grammie. I love my Grammie so very much, I hope she visits me a lot this coming week. I scored 2 bags of treats from her this week ( I love her even without treats though) .

002

Could you please purr and pray for my purrince’s Mum, she has newmonia. He is taking good care of her because he is a sweet boy. https://nylabluesmum.wordpress.com/

My cat grass is still alive, I post a photo on Facebook daily to keep Mom in line show you the progress.

004I finally got a turn with the valerian heart.

Tortie Tuesday

Hi everyone! Today is Tortie Tuesday instead of tummy Tuesday. One of our kitty readers requested seeing more of the tortie with the hope of getting to know her better so here is Penny:

005

Here she is hanging out with Flat Scout Charles ( one of these days we need to mail him home) . And here she is enjoying the valerian heart that Katzenworld sent us. We won a Posh Graffiti Christmas ornament in a giveaway and they were kind enough to send us this heart too. All the kitties have been loving it and drooling on it too. It also makes a great pillow. If you want your own, you can order here: https://shop.katzenworld.uk/product/4cats-cuddly-heart-valerian-toy/

006

This is the ornament that I won. It is beautiful and when you buy one you are helping a rice farming village in Bali to supplement their income.

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! Yesterday was Meow Like a Pirate Day and I got to spend the day with my purrince. 001

You can see our photo and Angel Lucy’s and lots of other cool pirates: http://www.speedyhousebunny.com/

I am a little tired today. I am also a little miffed at Mom. As you know, Lucy left me in charge. Well, Mom keeps singing to Flat Charles and telling him he is in charge or our days and our nights. He is a lot of fun, but I am the boss.

Prancie and Sammy played Scrabble with him, but Prancie got mad and quit when they told her she couldn’t add an S to mouse. 003

005She knocked her part of the game right over.

I saw my Grammie yesterday and I will see her again today. I love my Grammie so very much. She is going to be a Great Grammie soon so her and Mom are going to a baby shower today. I think my Grammie has always been great.

The 3 Tabbies ( Prancie, KaTwo and Stinky) went to a Pirate party at the Tabby Cat Club and they got to take this badge for participating: TCCPIRATEDAYBADGEYou can see their photos here: http://tabbycatclub.blogspot.com/
