18 Extra-Amazing Facts About Me

Hi everyone! Today we are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday, Sammy’s Poetry Day and Stunning Keisha’s 18 Extra-Amazing Facts About Me.I am thankful that I have gained weight since going on my thyroid meds. My folks think I am getting fat though, what do you think?

Here is my poem to go with this photo:

When most look at this
they see bliss.
Mom says no way
I am in my home to stay.
The sun is too hot
I’d cook like a tater tot.
There are bugs everywhere
and humidity in the air.
And not a single cat
I can’t live like that.

Yup, mom would live in a plastic bubble if she could as long as all us cats would fit in it. And now we will give Brody a turn with the facts.

4. Favorite Flower—A nip blossom.

5. Favorite dog breed—No comment.
6. Favorite ice cream—vanilla, that is the only one they share.

8. Shorts or jeans—I like to be au naturelle
9. Color of your PTU– Pink ( I am so embarrassed)
10. Color of your eyes—Green. .
11. Favorite food—Friskies shredded turkey and cheese.

15. Favorite day of the week—All of them.
16. Do you have a nick name?—Brodester, Bro Jangles.
17. Favorite music—Anything as long as mom doesn’t sing along.
18. Tattoos—None, but I know Penny has one on her tummy that was discovered when she arrived and mom took her to the vet to see if she had a spay scar- there was a tattoo there. Don’t tell her that I told you.

Ad here is one more facts, I love Leia!

Now here are The Friendly Fill-Ins for Friday. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. My favorite president is ________________ because ___________________.

2. This weekend, I have plans to ______________________.
3. I            my               .

4. I believe                    .



Hi everyone! Once again poor Penny can’t give you one of her tips. She will be back next Tuesday though.

*Disclaimer-we were given a Catit Lounge Scratcher with Catnip in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are our own.

  We chose the “white tiger” pattern. I thought Emmy should try it first being that it matched her.

 She loves it.

Sammy enjoyed it too. He scratched away until I turned my camera on then he just sat there.


Brody did the same thing. It is clearly a hit though. The Catit Lounge Scratcher is sturdy and at 19.5 inches long, it can handle a big boy like Sammy ( 16 pounds). After all 3 tested it, it still looks new. I have had others that were already shedding cardboard pieces after one try. It comes with a package of catnip to sprinkle on it too. It is only $7.99 and don’t forget that Chewy offers fast and free shipping on orders over $49. It always amazes me how quickly my orders arrive, usually less than 24 hours.

   Right before I published this post, Joanie thought it would be a nice place to nap.



Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! I don’t have much to report this week. Mom has been acting pretty normal ( for her).  She did start her decluttering challenge that she told you about the other day. The first room is the bedroom ( not the closet though, that gets it’s own week). Mostly she just moved the crap that doesn’t belong in there and moved it to the dining room for now.

Brody wants to say hi to his sweet Leia.

  Hi Leia!

And Joanie is still enjoying Gremmie.

Gremmie is playing with Weebles.

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.


Brody’s Selfie Request

Hi everyone! We are joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop. Brody is here with his selfie and a request. His girlfriend Leia’s brother needs some dental work, he has some resorption which is painful.

We have donated a little, but want to do more so Brody came up with an idea. For anyone that can donate at least $10, we will send you some crocheted catnip toys as a thank you. If you donate $20, we will send you a catnip mat and some crocheted toys.*I know it is a tough time right after the holidays so no pressure, but we just thought this would be a good way to help. If you do donate, just let us know in the comment section. And please spread the word. Here is the link to the donate page-click here

*I can only afford to send to US addresses or it would cost more than a $10 donation- I apologize to my foreign readers. If you did want to donate though, you could choose a friend in the US to get the toys. Thank you!

Penny’s Tips- Volume 5

Hi everyone! I finally get to give another one of my tips. My tip this week is to use a penny to solve a dispute. For example, I want this box and so does Millie. I will flip you for it Millie.

Heads I win, tails you lose.

Works every time. I always win.

Happy Hanukkah to our Jewish friends!

Don’t forget to comment on Sunday’s post for a chance to win Prancie’s Grumpy Cat giveaway!

Millie wrote: ” Dear Santa, I want a catnip carrot of my own. Love, Millie ”

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Sammy and I thank you all for your purrs and prayers. We will let you know the test results as soon as we find out. He was all tuckered out from his  trip to the vet.

Brody complained that he wasn’t getting enough blog time. He sends his love to his sweet Leia.

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. We are thankful for all of you wonderful readers. I am also thankful that we are done with our leftovers.I don’t need to see turkey again until next Thanksgiving.

Prancie wrote a poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter Y.

Yes in the answer I like best
to life it adds zest !
Yes to more snacks and food
to say no would just be rude.
Yes to a warm lap
and yes to a cozy nap.
Want to visit the vet ?
a no is the answer you will get.

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.
