Hi everyone. Before we show our Halloween costumes, I have a Prancie update. She is improving and can walk pretty well, just a little unsteady. The vet did not think she had a stroke. She thinks it is vestibular and possibly from an ear infection. She had an antibiotic shot and has ear drops. Thank you all for the purrs and prayers.
First off, black cats don’t need costumes, they are perfect just as they are. And Polar Bear is impossible to dress so he decided to pose with a ghost.
The other eight went with an ocean theme.
Sammy as Popeye with Olive Oil and Sweet Pea ( actually, it is a sugar snap pea).
Emmy is a penguin
Penny is a crab ( she is mad that she couldn’t do her tips today).
I want to thank you all for the words of comfort, emails, cards and prayers on the loss of Phoebe. I am truly blessed. I also want to thank The Cat on My Head for dedicating Sunday Selfies to Phoebe. I am sharing the beautiful badges many of you have made. I apologize if I forget anyone, if I do, please let me know.

Comments are shut off, you have already done so much to help me heal. Thank you.
Hi everyone! Thank you for all the words of comfort you have left on the loss of Phoebe.I will answer all your comments soon. I am still taking a break , but will return for our regular posts on Monday. I didn’t want to miss this special day because it is so important.
Today is Remember Me Thursday, the day we remember those in shelters still needing homes. Some will die in shelters before they ever get their forever homes.
KaTwo and Snowball spent 2 years in The Secaucus New Jersey Animal Shelter before I adopted them.I wish I had more than 4 years with Snowball, but I am thankful for the time we had.
Joanie and Sammy were also in a shelter when I adopted them. I went for Sammy, not knowing he had a sister, but once I saw her, I wasn’t leaving her behind. Please spread the word to adopt from shelters.
You can help your favorite shelter to win prizes( lots of food) in 3 ways:
Take a photo of your rescue pet and post it on Instagram #RememberTheRescue and #RememberMeThursday.
Post the photo on Twitter too with the same hashtags as above.
Hi everyone! Today we are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. We are thankful for the black kitties in our lives. I am also thankful that my Grammie FINALLY came to see me. I love her so very much!
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.

Hi everyone! Today is Phoebe’s Gotcha Day!!! I got her 14 years ago. My Mom drove and my niece was there too. My niece had just finished her freshmen year in high school and now she has been out of high school for 11 years and is married with a baby-time flies by too quickly. To read Phoebe’s story click here.
I love you Phoebe!

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.
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.
