Selfie Sunday with Phoebe

Hi everyone! I am having a great week. I got to see Grammie on Friday and look what she brought me us. I love her so very, very much.

Mom has gone crazy again and chopped up 7 more books. Plus she has been chasing us around the house to get photos of our Halloween costumes. I must say that I did a great job with mine- they will all be on display tomorrow. Look at all this nip Mom is drying and she has it in the dining room which is off-limits to us- phooey!

“The Great One” is going to be one on Tuesday. She has really cut into my Grammie time, but I feel bad for her because my Mom sings Soft Kitty to her all the time. And you know how bad my Mom sings. So I got her a birthday gift, a soft kitty with Penny’s voice singing ( not our Penny, the one from Big Bang Theory).

 

I decided to have a giveaway for The Day of the Dead even though we don’t celebrate it. We celebrate All Soul’s Day and All Saints Day, but they all recognize our departed loved ones.

Gone to the Dogs

Hi everyone! I have another beautiful graphic of Lucy that was made by Pipo and Minko’s Mom ( http://webeessiamese.blogspot.com/ )

LucytributeThank you- it is wonderful just like Lucy.

For today’s ROAR, I want to show you what I made while I was grieving ( I still am) Lucy. My niece had a tag sale and I asked her for the t-shirts that didn’t sell so I could make dog toys. I don’t know how to crochet any dog toys, I tried to make a bone once, but the pattern was too difficult for me. 001 008I ended up making 52 of these- I was obsessed with ripping up the shirts and making these. When I ran out of shirts, I searched the house for any older ones to rip up ( my hubby has a few less undershirts now) .I have a little fabric left for about 10 more and then I will go back to crocheting. I highly recommend this as a stress reliever. I found the directions here: http://barkpost.com/how-to-make-a-t-shirt-dog-toy/  . All these will be sold at the vet clinic where they sell my crocheted toys and all the money  goes to PAL. At least something good will come from my grief.

Penny wants to remind you to comment for a chance to win these Big Bang Theory/Soft Kitty socks – winner will be announced on Thursday’s Post- 010

I was sad to see another kitty went to the bridge ( http://fortypaws.blogspot.com/ )

Find a Penny, Pick It Up

Hi everyone! I am very excited because after 3 months of blogging, I am going to meet a fellow blogger. She is at a cat show only 30 mintues from my home so I can’t miss this chance. I hope to have a photo for tomorrow. I also hope to meet more of you someday.

Today is” every cat has a story day” and I have already told you about 12 of our kitties, only 3 left to go. Today will be Penny’s day. Penny is our chatty little Tortie. Back in May of 2012, Joanie kept looking out the window so I went to see what she was looking at and it was Penny. I ran out with a can of cat food and she came right over. I figured my hubby would get mad if I brought her inside, but she was clever. She followed him all around the yard and kept meowing at him. Before the day was over, she was inside.

We kept her in a crate the first night. The next day I brought her to get checked for FELV/FIV and a rabies shot. Luckily, she was already spayed and was healthy. She blended right in with the rest of the family. I named her Penny because we love the show Big Bang Theory. I like to say Penny, Penny, Penny like Sheldon does when he knocks on her door. 011This was her meowing the day we found her and this is her happy in the house:001In case anyone is wondering, I did ask around the neighborhood and check Craigslist for missing cats. We found a Penny picked her up and now we have good luck -and so does she.
