Wordless Wednesday

Emmy and I thank you all for the purrs and prayers. The full report with the proper terms was not ready yet, but for now Emmy is good. She needs a recheck in 6 months to be sure he heart isn’t enlarged. I was told it was not a normal cat heart and not something they normally see. There was something wrong with blood flow, but I had pulled over in my car and didn’t have a pen and paper with me to write things down. I will explain it more when I find out.  We are also waiting on blood work for her thyroid, it was close to being hyperactive when I first got her. She sure is happy to be back home.

Emmy’s Eye Envy

Hi everyone! A few weeks ago, we won a giveaway from Sweet Purrfections. Eye Envy is perfect for kitties that get discoloration under their eyes.This tends to happen to some Persian cats that have flatter faces. Emmy is not a Persian, but the vet told me she has a blocked tear duct.

*Disclosure-we won a 3 piece set of Eye Envy for Cats. We are under no obligation to do a review, but we like to spread the word about great products.

I just started using it on her, but I already think she looks better. The kit came with pads ( basically like eye makeup remover ones), a liquid and a powder. You pot some liquid on the pad to wipe under the eye after you have wiped it clean with a warm washcloth. Then you dab some powder on. It is all natural. If you are interested, you can get more information by clicking here.

Emmy is going for an ultrasound today. She has a significant heart murmur so I thought it would be wise to look into that. I have several cats with heart murmurs, the odd thing is Snowball is the one I lost to heart disease last year and she never had a murmur.

So much about Emmy is a mystery. The vet guessed her to be anywhere from 6-14 years of age. She has a faded spay scar, but there were no other clues to her age. I always have this odd feeling that I should not get too attached to her. It is too late for that though, I love my Emmy.

 

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! Now that the holidays are over and I am trapped in the house due to the cold weather, I have had time to read. We are joining The Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? , McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks and Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays.

My Spark is a quote from the author of the book I am recommending. Not sure how I have never heard of Joy Mangano, but until I read her book, I had no idea who she was. I like memoirs and reading how people become successful so I got Inventing Joy by Joy Mangano from the library. If you are not familiar with her, she has invented many products and her first was the wonder mop.

Actually, she started inventing things when she was a kid, but didn’t follow through until she was a single mom with three kids. She now has a huge empire and is a permanent feature on HSN. Her story was very interesting and a reminder that no one is an overnight success, years of hard work go into any successful endeavor.

There is a movie about her too with Jennifer Lawrence playing Joy. I haven’t seen it yet, but I ordered it up from the library and hope to pick it up tomorrow. If you are looking for some motivation this year, I highly recommend her book. It is part memoir and part self-help, with several pages of quotes at the end.

My spark for today is on of Joy’s quotes, ” No matter who you are or where you’re from, you have the power to change the world. ”

Sammy wants to know if he looks fat in his sweater?

If you donated to our friend Toby’s dental, we want to thank you for your generosity. And I want to let you know I am mailing all the packages out today( except for one I am waiting for an address on) of the mats and toys. Sorry for the delay, but it took me a while to make everything and then the weather turned bitterly cold. Also thanks to all who shared and are praying it goes well.

One more thing, please purr and pray for McGuffy’s Reader’s Kenzie, The Cat on My Head’s Cooper Murphy ,Timmy Tomcat’s Mr. Buttons and FurEverywhere’s Milita as they are all not feeling well at this time.

Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone! Can you see me? I blend in pretty good on this blanket. Dad said to thank you all for the wonderful birthday wishes yesterday. It is very cold so I am going to keep warm in my blankie and turn this post over to Joanie.

Gremmie and I match when I have my sweater on. Mom crocheted some mittens for him.*

His feet was cold too so we got him some UGHs.

See, they say UGH on back.

Next week, I tell you all about his potty training. Now we haz nap.

We are joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.

*Clearly I have cabin fever from staying in from the cold. Who makes mittens for a gremlin?

Ten Things of Thankful

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Ten Things of Thankful. Our art today is a card wishing the kitties’ Dad a Happy Birthday!

 

And now for our thankfuls:

  1. My wonderful husband whose birthday is today.
  2. My hubby that makes me tea at night and even warms the cup with hot water so it will stay extra hot.
  3. My hubby who plows ( very handy this week with 10 inches of snow).
  4. My hubby who makes sure the generator is working before a storm ( and was wise enough to get one to begin with).
  5. My hubby that the cats all flock too, I get annoyed that they all take turns on his lap. Joanie is my only lap cat with a brief visit from Brody or Emmy once in a while.
  6. My hubby who can fix a leaky faucet without calling a plumber.
  7. My hubby who can hang a framed picture or anything and make it perfectly level.
  8. My hubby who is a great cook.
  9. My hubby who is glad I am so close with my mom.
  10. My hubby who loves me even though I am a little crazy with all my quirks and superstitions.

I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful husband to share my life with.

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. We are thankful to all who donated to our friend Toby’s dental as well as all who spread the word and are praying it goes well this Friday. If you donated and did not hear from me, please let me know in the comment section. I am hoping to get all the catnip toys and mats mailed out on Friday.

Prancie has her poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, participants were asked to write a poem based on this photo:

Creativity is always fun
yet different for everyone.
Some turn a wall into a tree
that would not be me.
Someone may write a song,
that would take too long.
I like to destroy Daddy’s paper
that is my favorite kitty caper.

Prancie being creative

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

Penny’s Tips Volume 6

Hi everyone! I’m back with another  tip. I think I should get to do weekly tips, but I always get bumped for something else- not fair.

My tip is to use a penny to open the battery compartment on your remote control.

Joanie wants to update you on her gremlin.

I still training him. I made him a play pen so I can take a nap.

Brody is very grateful to all who have donated to Toby’s dental. Also to all who shared the Gofund page and are praying and purring.

Happy New Year!

Wishing you all a Happy and Healthy New Year!! We are joining McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks and Comedy Plus’ Awwww…..Mondays.

Our Spark for today is to remind everyone that we are all starting with a clean slate today so go for your dreams and take steps to make them happen- starting today.

And Brody wants to say thank you to all who donated to Toby’s dental. If you missed yesterday’s post about it, please check it out.And thank you to all who are purring and praying that it goes well.
