And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter J.

JERK
My brother Sammy has a quirk
he is a bit of a jerk
One night he sleeps on mom’s head
the next, he poops on the bed
He thinks he is a cool dude
and steals everyone’s food
You may think he is a perfect Cat Scout
but at home he is bad without a doubt.

  Now Brody move! You are on my new favorite spot.

Cat World Domination Day

Hi everyone! Today is Cat World Domination Day- I am sure your cats reminded you of this. I used this same globe last year with just Phoebe’s photos. This year, I used 7 of my cats- can you guess who they are?

Sparkle started this special day and now Summer continues it.

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! Today we are joining Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading blog hop and Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays. But first, I will list my three things I am thankful for today.

I am thankful for central air and that it is actually working. I am thankful that my niece is so sweet and brought a Father’s Day gift over for my hubby ( Uncle David) and I am thankful that Pipo and Minko’s Mom copied and pasted my post from last Monday for me. The one that GoDaddy stole and never gave back. Now I don’t have to waste brain cells trying to rewrite it.

I am sure many of you have heard of Norton the cat and read the 3 books his owner, Peter Gethers wrote about him back in the 1990’s. I wrote about them during the 2016 A-Z challenge, you can click here if you missed it.

Peter Gether’s latest book is a memoir/cookbook about his wonderful Mom titled, My Mother’s Kitchen. She had been a stay at home Mom to her two sons and a dutiful wife to her husband then at the age of 53 she started a career as a chef. She trained with Wolfgang Puck and became quite famous herself, even authoring several cookbooks.

I enjoyed learning more about the entire family. His mother was truly amazing, surviving 3 kinds of cancers and a stroke. She proved that attitude really does matter in recovering from illnesses. She also loved cats and would cat sit for her son’s cats. Norton used to travel with him, but after he passed, the other cats did not.

The author wanted to honor his Mom by cooking some of her favorite meals. This gives him quite an education in cooking too and a chance to bond with many friends. I learned several cooking tips and I plan to try some recipes too. If you are interested in reading it, here is the Amazon link.

I chose Prancie to pose with the book because Norton was a Scottish fold and Prancie reminds me of one because of her ears ( hers was frostbitten though)

And today is also International  Box Day

Penny is our box lover in the family. Sometimes she gets so excited, she pees in them. She hasn’t in a long time though so maybe she outgrew it.

Happy Father’s Day!

Hi everyone! Happy Father’s Day out there to all Cat Daddies. I am a lucky kitty to have one. Here is a photo from April ( Snowball is in it too- sniff).

  Dad always shares his supper with us.

Mom is interrupting my post to list her 3 things she is thankful for today.

Thanks Phoebe, sorry to interrupt. I am thankful that I had a wonderful father.Even though he passed away in 2001, I think of him every day.

I am also thankful that my hubby is such a good cat daddy and loves them as much as I do.

I am also thankful he is an excellent gardener.He has picked over 700 spears of asparagus and lots of strawberries, I even got to freeze some.

I am happy to report I accomplished more of the challenges too- I prayed, took a nap, did a random act of kindness and I even smiled at 3 people at the mall.

Now back to Phoebe-

Do you like my hat? Did you read Kali’s post on Thursday, if not, be sure to click here. We are starting a club for older female cats called The Crotchety Cougars. You just need to be a girl cat, over 15 to join. You will get a badge to display and my Mom will make you a hat like this.

Goodbye My Sweet Snowball

It is with a broken heart , I am writing this post. My sweet Snowball left us this morning. She had been having health problems since May 15th, but I was afraid to write about them for fear of jinxing her. We finally had our appointment with the cardiac specialist today and came home armed with several medicines to help ( she had just been on lasix to keep her stable). And sadly, she passed away the minute we got in the house.

Thank you Pam for this beautiful badge

Thank you Ann for this beautiful badge

I am going to take a little time off. I will visit you all soon. XO

Happy Mother’s Day!!!!

Hi everyone! I am so excited that Grammie will be here for brunch. I love her so very much! The Great One will be here too so I am going to go hide our stuffed Cookie Monster. Have a great day everyone!
