Friendly Fill-Ins Week 44

Hi everyone! Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins Week 44. Don’t forget to add your link at McGuffy’s Reader. You can also answer in the comment sections too. Thank you to all who participate, we love learning about you.

1. I hope _______________________ gets renewed for another season.

2. My first crush was __________________________.

3.                             usually makes me                          .

4. If I were a super-hero, I would be                                       .
My answers:
1. I hope American Housewife gets renewed for another season.
2. My first crush was Barney Rubble ( Flintstones). My Mom used to call my great aunt Alice and have her pretend to be Barney, I thought I was really talking to Barney. I remember asking him to leave Betty so he could come visit me. I was probably 4 years old at the time and apparently a bit of a hussy.
  Phoebe is posing with my stuffed Barney that I won at a carnival years ago. We even named a cat Barney,  my hubby remembered me telling him I used to love Barney Rubble-plus we found her in the barn.
  Barney looked a lot like Brody
3. Leaving my home unattended usually makes me nervous which is why I always have Grammie stay with cats if we are going to be out longer than 30 minutes. I am not afraid of someone stealing my belongings, but I fear that if someone broke in, the cats would get out and get run over in the street.
4. If I were a super-hero, I would be Cat Woman, of course.


Phoebe’s Thankful, Flashback, Poem Post

Hi everyone! As you can see by the title, I am going to do a lot of hopping today.

DSCF2141 (2)Thankful Thursday Blog Hop

For PepiSmart Dog’s Thankful Thursday, I am thankful that my Grammie stayed with us Monday while Mom and Dad were at the movies. I love her so very much! And Woosie boy, Brody is still afraid of everyone except Mom and Dad so he hid the entire time which means I had peace and quiet.


For P.S.Annie’s Throwback Thursday, I have a photo of my friend Barney, she went to The Bridge in 2013. Brody does look a little like her, I wonder why my folks give Irish names to gray and white cats?

And last, but definitely not least is my poem for my friend Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter H this week.  I have written a Hairball Haiku:

  Hairballs are icky
they make you cough and gag too
a gift for mom’s shoe


And here are tomorrow’s fill-ins. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two. Annie apologizes if she hasn’t commented on your fill-ins from last week, she has been under the weather. Please purr and pray for her to feel better.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 13
1. I am most proud of _____________________________.
2. I am embarrassed to admit __________________________________________.

3. My super-power might be                                   .

4. I really wish I could                                          .





Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day

Today is Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day:RainbowBridgeRemembranceDay [500px]

Hosted by Deborah Barnes : http://zeezoey.com/ A special day to remember all our friends that have gone to the bridge to wait for us there. Over the years, I have lost many rabbits, dogs, cats, guinea pigs, fish and hermit crabs too. I felt a loss over each and every one of them, but one in particular truly broke my heart.

My KaChoo was my first official cat, I adopted her in 1994 when she was a kitten. I used to always tell her she had to give me 20 years, but it wasn’t to be, she went to the Bridge at 16 and a half. We were very bonded and I will always miss her.


KaChoo’s baby photo-my Mom kept the gray one and named her Sheba.( she survived KaChoo by a year).   KaChoo3

My hubby had a cat when we got married and she lived to be 19, her name was Patches, but he always called her Ratchie – I scanned a photo of her, but it is in an Adobe file and as you all know, I am technologically challenged.

We also lost Brina in 2011, she was a 3-legged tortie persian that I adopted from my sister when she was already older.

brina1and our cat-loving dog Katie also went to the bridge that year:


And beautiful Barney left us is 2013 . I pray we don’t have any more loss for a long time. I don’t know if there is an actual rainbow bridge or not, but I know all these pure souls would go to Heaven.

I am co-hosting the Feeling Beachie’s Follow Friday Fill-In Fun, but I didn’t want to interfere with this special day so I will post my fill-ins tomorrow.



Father’s Day Selfies

Happy Selfie Sunday everyone! And Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there. I know I am very lucky to have a Dad, but any kitty that has at least one human love them is pretty darn lucky so even if you don’t have a Dad, don’t feel bad.

I am not a suck up lap kitty, I like to be petted, but I don’t do laps. Good thing because Dad’s lap is NEVER empty:

I got to see Grammie a lot this week, I love her so very much. She even told me she loves me so very much isn’t she sweet?

This week my sweet Purrince( https://nylabluesmum.wordpress.com/ ) told me he wished he had a Grammie so I told him I would share. I love my Grammie so very much, but she has a lot of love to share so she will be his Grammie now too.
