Penny’s Tips Volume 3

Hi everyone! Did you miss me? My mean mom keeps pushing me off for silly things like reviews and Halloween.

My tip today is to use a penny to replace a missing checker. My folks have this apple checker board and the apples are fun to roll around so they do need to use this tip sometimes. I thinks they should give me all the apples to play with and they can use pennies.

 

 

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Happy Monday everyone! We are triple hopping today with Comedy Plus’ Awww…. Mondays, McGuffy’s Reader’s SPARKS and Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Joanie will not be reviewing a book today.

I haz no time to read. I find 3 gremlins* and need to take care of them.

I have been reading All Hands on Pet! Your How-To Guide on Home Physical Therapy Methods for Pets by Susan E. Davis PT.*

*I received a free copy of All Hands on Pet ! in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are my own.

When I accepted the free copy of All Hands on Pet! I had no idea I would be needing it. It has actually come in very handy in dealing with Prancie. This book is filled with a wealth of information for all pets, although the main focus is dogs.

It covers many health issues and the treatments available. I finally learned what an Assisi Loop is, I had seen them in giveaways, but never understood why they are therapeutic. I also learned that reptiles can get gout.

For Prancie, I am using the spreadsheet for managed care to keep track of her medicines ( ear drops and thyroid pills) as well as her condition. There are many photos showing where to rub dogs for massage and therapy so if you are a dog owner, I highly recommend this.

And now for my SPARK this week, it is a quote I found on Pinterest.

“People who winder whether the glass is half empty or half full are missing the point. The glass is refillable.” I think it was a joke about wine, but it made me think about life in general and how we can add anything to our glass ( lives) so why worry about the full or empty just fill it with what you want.

*Please don’t tell Joanie those are not gremlins, they are furbies.

 

 

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! As you can see, I finally got a turn in the Haunted House.

Thank you all for the purrs and prayers, I appreciate them. I am feeling pretty spry. I also feel like a prisoner in a white-collar prison. My folks still make me sleep in a crate between them so I don’t jump around at night. They are so overprotective. I do enjoy being spoiled even more than usual though.

The other day, my mom told my Dad he was interrupting her conversation with herself. I think she has officially lost her mind.

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

I am also joining Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

Blog 4 Peace

Hi everyone! We are participating in the Blog4Peace again this year. Instead of making a new globe, I have decided to use last year’s with Phoebe and Brody. Now if I could only get Sammy and Brody to be able to sit that close.

 

We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Ten Things of Thankful.

Here are my ten thankfuls:

  1. Baseball season is over- I have nothing against the sport except that it is on almost EVERY day. And those men spit way too much.
  2. The Orville already got renewed for season 2. If you haven’t seen it yet, it is on Fox Thursday night, sort of like the original Star Trek.
  3. I found a great website with all kinds of free printables to help organize everything- from cleaning schedules, party planning, gift shopping, etc. It is called Iheartorganizing.
  4. Emmy sat near me and let me pet her.
  5. I got to see the great one in her Halloween costume, she had quite a few relatives that came to see her. I am glad she is so loved, if all kids were that loved, we would have a world of peace.
  6. I am going to the great one’s 2nd birthday party today- the theme is Teletubbies ūüôā
  7. My toe is officially fine and I don’t have to go back to the podiatrist. I had a procedure done a month ago that makes that side of the nail never grow back- and it worked.
  8. Prancie continues to do well ( this should be #1, but I am too lazy to switch it). Thank you all for the purrs and prayers.
  9. I have a new Nic Cage movie to watch tonight.
  10. Chewy sent us a Halloween gift.. I am a ChewyInfluencer and it is so nice to be appreciated. I worked for the local school system for 13 years and was never shown appreciation.

Look at all these cool spiders!

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. We are very thankful that Prancie is almost back to her normal self, she is still a little weak, but much better. And we are very thankful for all the purrs and prayers. In addition to the vestibular issue and ear infection, she also has hyperthyroidism so is now taking meds for that. She still needs a blood pressure check when we go for a recheck in 3-4 weeks.Her other blood work was good and her urine was too so that is all good news.

Prancie did write her poem today, but she is going to let Joanie deal with this post.

I iz Prancie’s nurse. When mom or dad can’t watch Prancie she is in this cage and I takes care of her. She sleeps in this too between my folks. They are afraid she will get hurt if she tries to jump down from somewhere.

Millie played a Halloween trick on mom, he hid a pumpkin. She heard a thump when they were watching tv and figured he knocked it down, but she couldn’t find it until the next morning. He had rolled it across the kitchen and under a chair that was in the corner.

We are joining Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter U. Here is Prancie’s poem.

Unique
Just like people, us kitties are all unique
some of us are quiet and some like to speak.
Some of us eat too much, not me though
most of us enjoy looking out the window.
One thing about us that is the same
we love our human that gave us a name.

We are late with our Spark this week too. On Google, I found a photo of a caterpillar and a butterfly with the following quote: “Don’t Lose Hope.(You never know what tomorrow will bring).” Here are my photos that my hubby took this summer of a monarch emerging from a chrysalis.

And here are the fill-ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.


1. My favorite part of November is ________________.

2. Every November, I ________________________.

3. For me, peace                                         .

4. So far, my upcoming holiday plans                                        .

Happy Halloween!

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).

Millie is a pirate

Brody is an octopus

Joanie is the Gorton’s Fisherwoman

Prancie is a mermaid

( photo taken before she got sick)

KaTwo is a shark

Which one do you like best? Have a great day!

 

Prancie

Hi everyone ! I just want to let you all know why I didn’t post on Sunday. Prancie is sick now. She will go to the vet first thing Monday morning. I would have rushed her to the emergency vet, but my hubby feels they just like to run up the bill. She has actually improved since Saturday night when she could not walk and kept falling over. She is still unstable, not sure if it was a stroke, ear infection or something with her arthritis. I will keep you posted. I appreciate all purrs and prayers. And I will get around to visit you all soon.

I am shutting off comments, I know you will all be praying for her-thank you.

Ten Things of Thankful

Hi everyone! We have a busy post today. First off , we are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop.My first thankful is the art-

  1. I won a necklace from Memorial Glass Pendants on Cat Chat with Caren and Cody quite a while ago. It is made with ashes of a beloved pet and I had planned to send a little of each of my angels, but Phoebe was so sick that I couldn’t bring myself to deal with it. After Phoebe passed away, I was too sad.Well, last week I finally sent some ashes for the necklace. I decided that Phoebe and Snowball were always together so I chose to have the necklace made with their ashes.

My photo doesn’t do the necklace justice. It is so beautiful and looks like stars in the sky.

2. I am thankful that the owner let me know when the ashes arrived and sent back the ones she didn’t use as well.

3. Hubby and I celebrated our 25th anniversary this week ( I guess that should be #1) .

4. A pizza party with the great one and my mom.

5. Made a cheesecloth ghost with the great one, she is finally at a good age to do some arts and crafts.

6. Mom and I spent the day at the casino on Thursday ( we go every year around her birthday).

7. I only lost $3 at the casino, the most I will part with is $20.

8. Black Cats Tell All came out this week and I am thankful Spooky’s story is part of it.To order click here

9. Thankful some of you plan to watch the movie I was in that Joanie told you about on Monday.

10. Thankful I was able to get Sammy’s vomit off my favorite black cat shirt. It was hanging off the bureau and he stood on the bureau and yacked over the edge.
