National Coloring Day

Hi everyone! Lots going on today. First off, I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that I got to spend quality time with Grammie on Monday. I love her so very much.

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. I used all 4 word prompts.

Letter to Santa
Santa you don’t need to send an elf
I will tell you who has been naughty
that elf can sit on someone else’s shelf
Sammy and Penny have issues with the potty
Really, I am the only one that’s nice
the only normal one too
None of my siblings deserve new toy mice
or any gift from you
Sammy, Brody and Emmy like to fight
I could use a new harness dress
size small, I am very light
make it pretty, I have a purrince to impress
PS: Don’t use the chimney
it leads to the furnace
I will leave you a key
so you don’t burn your jolly a**

Today is National Coloring Day so I thought I would have a giveaway to celebrate.

Just leave a comment on today’s post for a chance to win this coloring book for your human and I will be sure mom makes some crocheted toys for you too. I will announce the winner on Sunday. Feel free to tell me how beautiful I am, you would think I would get sick of hearing that, but I never do.

And here are 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. I have broken __________________ bones.

2. When I go out to breakfast, I order___________________________.
3. As Summer officially comes to an end,                                  .

4. Before this year is over, I really need to                                 .

 

Is It Too Early For Apples?

Hi everyone! Mom has been destroying books again! Do you remember last year she made pumpkins? If not, click here.

  I didn’t want to get too close, that spray paint smells.

  Here are some of the finished apples, if you look close, you will see a worm in one of them.

All you do is take the cover off an old paperback, cut an apple shape out of the book. Then you fold the book back and glue the spine. You can also add drops of glue at the top of each page ( mom didn’t, she is lazy). Some of the books ended up with built-in stems that she painted green ( I think she should have painted them brown). And others, she added a piece of a pussy willow branch. Then she added ribbons and a worm in one 🙂

She is going to donate these to the senior center to put on tables at their monthly birthday dinner then they can give them away, but she said I could take one for a giveaway.

  I am having a giveaway of this book apple and this beautiful apple print catnip mat. Just leave a comment on today’s post before Wednesday 9PM (EST). I will announce the winner on Thursday. Feel free to tell me how beautiful I am, I don’t mind.

We are joining Create-with-Joy’s Inspire me Monday Blog Hop ( Yes, I know it is Tuesday). There are almost 200 links on this hop with lots of crafts and recipes.

PS: I hope Grammie visits me soon, I love her so very much.

 

 

Tuxie Tuesday

Hi everyone! Time to announce the winner of the giveaway for an IKEA mouse.

I am going to let Emmy announce the winner.

By the way, I haven’t seen Grammie since last Wednesday! I love her so very much, I hope she visits me soon.

 

And the winner is Teddy of One Spoiled Cat! Congratulations! Your white mouse will go out in the mail today. Everyone else, don’t worry, we will be doing another mouse giveaway soon.

Selfie Sunday and Thanks to Chewy

Hi everyone! Mom had a lot of fun at IKEA yesterday. She bought some curtains with black cats on them. And a weasel for her great-niece, I mean an easel.

Would you believe these were her main reason for wanting to go? They are children’s toys, but she buys them for us. They no longer are listed in the catalog or online so she was thrilled to find them. She bought 9 mice and 2 rats. She said some are for giveaways and I can give one away today. If you want to be entered for a chance to win, tell me in the comment section which color you will choose if you win, they come in white, gray and brown. I will announce the winner on Tuesday.

Remember my lemonade stand that I made with a CHEWY box?(click here)

Joanie was worried that we didn’t have lemonade and I told her it didn’t matter, we would still get stuff for having a lemonade stand. I was right! Look what Chewy sent us because they liked my stand.

Of course, I do all the work and Sammy tried to take the prize. We got 2 packages of treats, lots of catnip toys , including a mouse and a carrot, a wand toy, a burlap bag, a bandana and a magnet for mom’s car. Mom thinks the bag is for her, but I have claimed it as a nice spot to snooze on. Thank you Chewy!!!

I haven’t seen my Grammie since Wednesday, I hope she visits soon. I love her so very much.

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

Tuxie Tuesday

Hi everyone! Emmy wanted to say hi today.

Hi!

Now would you look at all these books. Mom is always giving stuff away and decluttering, but she seems to have lost her mind. Her and Dad went to a book sale, it was the last day and all books were free so she came home with 49!!!! Of those, 4 were for Dad, 1 for Grammie ,1 for The Great One

and the rest were all for her. I think I should pee on them, I would be doing her a favor because she would have to get rid of them. This is just too much clutter. And ironically, one of the books is titled, Throw Out Fifty Things. Mom read it and threw away 50 things back in 2012, and continues to declutter, but she clearly has given up.

I hope Grammie visits soon. I love her so very much. She is supposed to be here Wednesday.

And the winner of the Sharknado catnip mat and crocheted fishies is As the World Purrs!

PS: If you have a wordpress blog and don’t see a comment from Mom, please check SPAM. Every once in a while WordPress decided it doesn’t like her and does that. Sorry.

 

 

 

 

Awww…….Mondays

Hi everyone! We are not joining the book blog hop because I haven’t read anything worth recommending-unless the new IKEA catalog counts. I have spent way too much time with that. Joanie still wants to do a review though and she is joining Comedy Plus’ Awww… Mondays Blog Hop.

This book is stupid. The author let someone move his cheese. If I had some cheese no one would move it because it would be in my tummy.

Thank you Joanie for that interesting review. This is actually a classic that we own although I have yet to find any cheese 🙂

Make sure you comment on yesterday’s post for a chance to win this shark themed catnip mat. Phoebe will announce the winner tomorrow.

Sharknado Selfies

Hi everyone! I am mad at my Mom, she dragged me off to the vet again for another B-12 shot and anti-nausea shot. The tech messed up and got the vitamin B all over me the first try- phooey!

I did get to see Grammie on Saturday. I love her so very much.

And my sweet purrince wrote me a poem. Here it is:

“HEART”
“You live inn mee heart,
Mee heart beelongss to you deer,
Our heartss beet as one.”

I am so lucky to have such a sweet boyfriend. He is handsome too. If you haven’t seen his blog yet, click here

Tonight on SyFy is Sharknado 5. My Dad likes to watch crap, I mean interesting movies like that. Mom found this shark fabric so I thought I would do a giveaway for a catnip mat. Just leave a comment today, feel free to tell me how beautiful I am. I will announce the winner on Tuesday’s post. I will have Mom crochet some fishies to feed the sharks too.

I am joining The Cat on my Head Sunday Selfies Blog Hop and The Pet Blogger’s Showcase. My friend Bear Cat, chose me to showcase this week-thank you.

My answers:
1. As a child, my favorite playground activity was the swings. I wish I could have a giant swing now.
2. For breakfast I have waffles with butter ( the frozen kind)- I know it is not healthy, but that is what I like. My Mom keeps telling me to stop having awful waffles 🙂
3 An instrument I would like to play is the piano. I got a free piano from Craigslist 11 years ago and I took lessons for a year and a half, but now I use it as a buffet in the dining room.I have no musical ability.

Hartz Delectables Squeeze Up Cat Treats

Hi everyone! Look at all this cool stuff we got in the mail. It is like Christmas in July!

*We were sent samples of Hartz Delectables Squeeze Up Cat Treats and Hartz cat toys in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are our own.

We love these squeeze ups!

 

You can lick them right out of the package or you can squeeze them into a dish. Phoebe was too dignified to lick out of the package( Joanie wasn’t) , but she loved them in her bowl. She tried the chicken so far, but we have tuna too which I am sure will be a hit.

We are going to share our bounty by having a giveaway. One lucky winner will get some of these toys and a 4 pack of the tuna and a 4 pack of the chicken treats. Just comment on this post by Thursday 9PM (EST). We will announce the winner on Friday.

Treat Tuesday

Hi everyone! Today we want to tell you about two kinds of treats we recently won.

First off, we won Blue Buffalo Kitty Cravings Chicken Crunchy Cat Treats from Three Chatty Cats. Being that KaTwo will only eat this kind of treat, I let her keep the entire bag ( don’t tell Phoebe).

We also won some Pet Naturals of Vermont Calming Treats from Sweet Purrfections.

  They are supposed to help calm an anxious pet during thunderstorms, fireworks or any other stressful event. Joanie didn’t need calming, but she wanted to try one. I also let Sammy, Millie and Penny try them too. They must taste great because they gobbled them up. They did seem calm, but there was nothing stressful happening at the time. I put the rest away to try during the next thunderstorm. It only takes one treat to help, but up to 3 can be given.

Thank you Three Chatty Cats and Sweet Purrfections! Also thanks to Chewy who sponsored both giveaways.

We also want to thank the blog, KittyClism that gave us a Blogger Recognition Award.
