Penny’s Tips Volume 2

Hi everyone! Before I give you my tip of the week, I want to wish my folks a Happy 25th Anniversary!

Now it is time for my tip. As you know, my folks went to Maine last Tuesday to meet Teddy’s wonderful folks. All they brought back for me was a penny. A flattened one at that.

¬† It says Kittery on it and has a duck stamped on it. A lot of tourist places have machines that you put 50 cents in and a penny then you turn a crank and it turns the penny into a little souvenir. My tip is to look for one when you are traveling that way you only spend 50 cents on a souvenir and it won’t even take up much space.

One more thing–yesterday, Joanie told you about the movie mom was in and some of you commented on planning to watch it. Thank you, we appreciate that, but do want to warn you there is some bad language and the start may have something that turns you off of the entire movie, but please stay with it. Mom is the comedy relief and quite proud of her small performance including rolling off the bed ūüôā

I am off to go play with our new Halloween scratcher that arrived today . We won it from Summer-thank you! I hope I can make Brody get out of it. We will show more photos of it on Thursday along with the other fun toys Summer sent us too.

 

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that all of you have been so accepting of me. I know I will never be as fun as Phoebe, but I will try my best.

And to thank you all , I am having a giveaway. Just comment on today’s post for a chance to win. I will announce the winner on Sunday so you have until Saturday night 9pm (EST) to enter. The prize is this ghost print catnip mat and 2 crocheted catnip ghosts.

Brody wants me to tell you how he caught two bats and a rat

¬†¬† Shhh! Please don’t tell him they are Halloween decorations. Mom wasn’t too happy he de-tailed the rat.

Now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter S.

SPIDERS
Some spiders are hairy
and some are scary.
Some a really big,
but most are smaller than a twig.
We have all kinds in this house
maybe I will hide one in mom’s blouse.

And now the Friendly Fill-ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.


1. If I was a ghost, I would haunt ____________________.

2. I always _________________ when _______________.

3. My favourite scary story is                               .

4. I will be so glad when                           .

*Disclaimer- we were given Wellness CORE Simply Shreds Grain-Free Boneless Chicken Wet Cat Food Topper, 1.75-oz, case of 12 in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are our own.

Wellness CORE Simply Shreds Grain-Free Boneless Chicken Wet Cat Food Topper are made with only 3 ingredients: Chicken, chicken broth and water.

They actually look and smell good enough to eat, but I restrained myself ūüôā

Millie loved them and so did Penny

Jinx, Tallulah, Polar Bear and Noel all enjoyed this food too. I didn’t try it on Sammy because of his special diet and a few others for various reasons, but all who tried it cleaned their bowls. My only complaint was it is impossible to open the package with water/juice spurting out .It is on sale for $13.99/case of 12. Click here to go to Chewy.

And don’t forget that orders over $49 are shipped free and arrive in 1-2 days.

Sammy is mad for plaid with this bow tie.

Cowboy hats never go out of style. Joanie and Brody are proudly wearing theirs.

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter J.

JERK
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.

PS: Here are the fill-ins for Friday. Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. If someone were visiting my area, I would recommend a visit to _________________________.

Tubby Tuesday

Hi everyone! You are probably wondering why this post is titled Tubby Tuesday.

¬† Brody has been getting quite tubby. My hubby calls him Stubby because he does have short legs and a full body. I was going to make him a vet appointment because I know I don’t feed him enough for him to gain that much weight. I was wondering if he had a slow thyroid like me, but then my hubby caught him in action the other morning. I keep Phoebe’s food on a high cupboard in the hallway. I didn’t think anyone would go up there because it is very narrow, but I was wrong. He was up there wolfing down her grain. She likes to eat during the night so I keep it available because if I start opening containers , everyone will come rushing in and expect a snack. I am guessing he has been doing this for a few months which explains his weight gain. I know keep it inside the cabinet.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I got to see my Grammie on Wednesday, I love her so very much.

I am thankful that when Mom brought me to the vet Tuesday, they didn’t steal my blood. I just got a B-12 injection and an anti-nausea one. Mom talked to the vet about those and being that they are safe, I can get them every 14 days. The vet checked me and I wasn’t dehydrated so I didn’t need fluids like the last time.

I am thankful for The Crotchety Cougar Club, a place where all my older¬† lady friends and I can complain. Please read about it on Kali’s blog. And please pray for Kali because she hasn’t been feeling well. I am thankful that we gained two more members this week ( they are not listed yet on Kali’s post, but will be added soon).

I am also joining Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter F.

Family
Some say family has to be blood
I tell them to jump in the mud
My folks and I don’t share DNA
but for my health they always pray
Brody may drive me nuts
but I love that little putz
Family are those that love you
no matter what you do

Brody and Prancie are pretty chummy

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for week 63. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. My favorite thing on my daily to-do list is ________________________.

2. My least favorite thing on my daily to-do list is ________________________

3. I could really do without                           .

4. I would love to have more                                    .

 

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone. Before we start, I want to have a moment of silence for Gertrude of Marg’s Animals who left for The Rainbow Bridge on Monday.

I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop because I am thankful that we are finally rid of the sickness that we all had ( except Brody). And I will be seeing Grammie today, I love her so very much.

Brody wasn’t sick, but he didn’t escape a trip to the vet. He was due for a rabies vaccine. This week, Brody and I wrote a poem together for Sammy’s Poetry Day.

Damn Vet
Mom dragged me off the damn vet
I am starting to think I’m not her favorite pet
I admit I felt like crud
but those vampires shouldn’t have taken my blood
They gave me an anti-nausea shot
I guess that helped a lot
The next day Mom dragged me off too
please remind me to vomit in her shoe
I was given a rabies vaccine
by a lady whose name was not Maxine
To my lovely Leia I send a kiss
to Mom and the Damn vet a hiss!

Emmy also wanted to give writing poetry a try so she used one of the word choices, dark.

Dark
I only come out when it is dark
that is when I get my spark
When everyone else is sound asleep
I wander about not making a peep
In the morning toys scattered on the floor
to pick them all up is quite a chore
Maybe someday I will sleep at night
instead of sleeping while it is light

Do you like my shades?

Mom is participating in Wandering Through the Shelves TMP blog hop again this week, the theme is summer vacation.

  1. A Walk on the Moon ( 1999)- Set in 1969, a family goes to a Jewish summer retreat in The Catskills. Great music and incredible acting by Diane Lane, Liev Schreiber, Viggo Mortensen and a young Anna Paquin. This is one of my favorite films and it doesn’t even have Nicola Cage in it.
  2. Dirty Dancing ( 1987)- I think everyone knows of this one.
  3. Dirty Dancing (2017) – This is a remake of the original and made for tv, but it was pretty good. Abigail Breslin played Baby, I think she seemed too young for the part. The original came out when I was 18 so it could just be that I am so much older now that she seemed extra young. I did like the extra ending in this one.

And here are the fill-ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two. Please purr and pray for Annie’s beautiful cat, Chloe Jo , she has been having numerous health problems and was hospitalized for several days.

1. My favorite line from a film is __________________________.

2. Other than blogs, a website I visit often is __________________.

3. When I feel down, I                              .

4. If I could                         , I would                           .

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! This was a tough week, we were all sick except for Brody. I think he must be a secret alien. I even had to go to the vet for fluids because I was dehydrated from being sick and with my kidney disease, I couldn’t get better without a little help.

Look what Grammie got for me as a get well gift. I saw her on Saturday. I love her so very much.

And Mom got me my favorite Cheese Party mix and I don’t even have to share.

This week, two of my friends featured me in The Pet Blogger Showcase. Thank you Bear Cat and Heart Like a Dog.

  Here is the alien, I mean Brody , dressed for The 4th of July.
