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.

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.

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog

  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers
  • Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to
  • Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.

I started blogging because I love cats and wanted to share what I have learned about them over the years in the hope of helping other cats. It has now become a big part of my life and I am blessed with the friendship and support of a wonderful group of cat lovers.

Two pieces of advice to new bloggers- comment on other blogs and join Facebook groups for cat lovers( or whatever your blog is about) where you can share your posts.

I can’t pick just 15- if you are reading this then your blog deserves this award too.

And the Emmy Goes to

You read that right- it’s a girl! And the Emmy goes to me 🙂 Thank you all for crossing those paws. She is even spayed already, FELV/FIV negative and no microchip so she is all mine. Emmy travels so well, not a peep out of her and it was an hour round trip plus and hour and a half waiting for our turn.

The vet wrote down she is 10, but said she could be anywhere from 6-14. Her teeth look great, but she thought her eyes looked old. I think they are just a very unique color, I am hoping to get some photos soon. She also has a heart murmur and may be hyperthyroid so I need to take her to my regular vet. We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday because I am thankful that I get to keep Emmy.

And now I will let Phoebe take over-

Thanks Mom, I was wondering when I was going to get my turn. There were lots of guesses and 12 of you guessed correctly, no chip and a girl. So I had Mom write your names down and I had Dad pull a name out of his baseball cap. And the winner is Critters in the Cottage-Congratulations!

We are praying for two of the Critters in the Cottage, Esme and Mitalee.

I am going to see Grammie today- finally! I love her so very much. I haven’t seen her since Saturday!!!

Sammy is a conehead right now. He has a small scratch on his ear, but when he scratches and shakes his head, it looks like a crime scene. Mom said she needs to hire “The Cleaner” from the TV show, The Blacklist.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. It is a Haiku titled Zen.

Wanting for nothing
except a meal and warm bed,
cats are very zen.

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. And make sure you add your link if you do a post with the fill-ins.

1. a prop from a tv show or film I would like to own is _____________________________________.

2. My oldest friendship is _________________________________.

3. Whenever I                        , I always                            .

4. The best                    is                          .

Phoebe’s Contest

Hi everyone!

Ready for the contest? I am going to have you take a guess as to whether the new kitty is a boy or a girl. Also, does it have a microchip? I am sure many will answer both correctly so whoever does will be entered to win this catnip mat and crocheted turkey leg and baby rat.

Just answer in the comment section of today’s post. I will accept answers until Wednesday night at 9 PM ( EST). I will announce the winner in Thursday’s post.

Mom will be heartbroken if this kitty has a microchip, she is already quite attached. She has been able to brush the kitty and remove some mats. There was no fleas or flea dirt which is a miracle.

I haven’t seen Grammie since Saturday and I miss her. I love her so very much, I hope she visits soon.

 

 

 

The Big Fork and Spoon

What are these for Phoebe?

Mom and Dad are having a giant over for dinner, maybe he will eat you Joanie.

I am going to go hide.

She is so gullible. These were in the kitchen of Mom’s childhood home and she kept them when the house was sold in 2003. She is thinking about painting them and putting them in our kitchen- I say she should just put them away and leave the 1970’s in the past with the avocado colored appliances.

I got my cup all set for Cinco de Mayo. It says ” Tips appreciated. We do not accept coins.”

Grammie came to see me today and gave me my $5 for Cinco de Mayo. It was morning though and I don’t dance in the morning, but she still paid me. I love her so very much and I would even if she didn’t give me treats and cash.

Don’t forget to comment on yesterday’s post for a chance to win the A-Z crocheted items which will be split among 2 winners which I will announce on Thursday.

I am off to work on my U poem- any ideas for that?

 

 

Z is for Zeppelin

Hi everyone! I am such a dip that I forgot to post my Z for the A-Z challenge in Sunday’s post.  Z is for Zeppelin. I couldn’t find a free pattern so I made it up as I went along.

And now for the fun part, I am giving everything away to 2 lucky winners. Each winner will get 11 toys and 2 hats.Just leave a comment saying which item I made was your favorite. Phoebe will announce the winners on Thursday.

We are also joining Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? blog hops.

Memoirs are my favorite genre so I read Insomniac City by Bill Hayes even though I was not familiar with his writing before reading this. I can’t even put into words how much I enjoyed this book. Mr. Hayes lost his partner in San Fransisco suddenly then he moves to NYC and finds love again with Oliver Sacks ( another author I was unfamiliar with, but will read now).

I really enjoyed his style of writing and how he chose his words. Here is one quote, ” I’ve come to believe that a good cry is like a car wash for the soul.” Another quote after describing some books falling over and making a sound ” …..that sound alone is the reason to have books. May books never disappear. ” I also enjoyed his love of NYC and all the positive encounters he has with strangers.

I feel bad that I haven’t read any cat books lately, I will soon though. I think I spotted a black and white cat last night so I put out food and something ate it, but hubby thinks it was a skunk. Time will smell, I mean tell.

 

Animal Hearted

Hi everyone! It is getting to be t-shirt weather which is the perfect time to stock up on some cute cat t-shirts.

*Disclaimer: We received a $40 gift card to Animal Hearted in exchange for spreading the word about their products.

These are some of my favorites:

 

They also have specific breeds too:

And they don’t just have cat products, they have dogs, alpacas, frogs, chickens and guinea pigs too!  The best part is they donate 25% of proceeds to animal charities, they have a list of them on their website.

I used my gift card for the black cat shirt and also some items for a giveaway.

Just leave a comment on today’s post for a chance to win these goodies which include a bag, 2 car magnets and a key chain. Phoebe will announce the winner on Thursday.
