Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop.I am skipping the Ten Things of Thankful today, but I hope to get my post done for it before the link closes for the week. I’ve been busy trying to get Christmas shopping done before the stores get too busy.

I used Face in the hole to turn Brody and Emmy into pilgrims.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

I am thankful for this cage. I actually like sleeping in it between Mom and Dad. Last night my folks went out to dinner and Grammie stayed with us. She gave me treats and dad brought some prime rib home to me.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter V.

View
From this window, Brody enjoys the view
Sometimes the sights make him mew.
There are hummingbirds in the summer
when they leave it is a real bummer.
Soon we will see a cardinal and a finch
maybe we will even spot the Grinch.

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. The best part of where I live is ___________________.
2. The worst part of where I live is ________________.
3. If I had    ________     , I would                     .

 4. My favourite article of cold weather clothing is                  

 

Blog 4 Peace

Hi everyone! We are participating in the Blog4Peace again this year. Instead of making a new globe, I have decided to use last year’s with Phoebe and Brody. Now if I could only get Sammy and Brody to be able to sit that close.

 

We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Ten Things of Thankful.

Here are my ten thankfuls:

  1. Baseball season is over- I have nothing against the sport except that it is on almost EVERY day. And those men spit way too much.
  2. The Orville already got renewed for season 2. If you haven’t seen it yet, it is on Fox Thursday night, sort of like the original Star Trek.
  3. I found a great website with all kinds of free printables to help organize everything- from cleaning schedules, party planning, gift shopping, etc. It is called Iheartorganizing.
  4. Emmy sat near me and let me pet her.
  5. I got to see the great one in her Halloween costume, she had quite a few relatives that came to see her. I am glad she is so loved, if all kids were that loved, we would have a world of peace.
  6. I am going to the great one’s 2nd birthday party today- the theme is Teletubbies 🙂
  7. My toe is officially fine and I don’t have to go back to the podiatrist. I had a procedure done a month ago that makes that side of the nail never grow back- and it worked.
  8. Prancie continues to do well ( this should be #1, but I am too lazy to switch it). Thank you all for the purrs and prayers.
  9. I have a new Nic Cage movie to watch tonight.
  10. Chewy sent us a Halloween gift.. I am a ChewyInfluencer and it is so nice to be appreciated. I worked for the local school system for 13 years and was never shown appreciation.

Look at all these cool spiders!

Happy Halloween!

Hi everyone. Before we show our Halloween costumes, I have a Prancie update. She is improving and can walk pretty well, just a little unsteady. The vet did not think she had a stroke. She thinks it is vestibular and possibly from an ear infection. She had an antibiotic shot and has ear drops. Thank you all for the purrs and prayers.

First off, black cats don’t need costumes, they are perfect just as they are. And Polar Bear is impossible to dress so he decided to pose with a ghost.

The other eight went with an ocean theme.

Sammy as Popeye with Olive Oil and Sweet Pea ( actually, it is a sugar snap pea).

 

Emmy is a penguin

Penny is a crab ( she is mad that she couldn’t do her tips today).

Millie is a pirate

Brody is an octopus

Joanie is the Gorton’s Fisherwoman

Prancie is a mermaid

( photo taken before she got sick)

KaTwo is a shark

Which one do you like best? Have a great day!

 

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 🙂

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                           .

#ChewyInfluencer

Hi everyone! Time for our second Chewy Review and our Fall Fashion Show Part 2.

*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 🙂

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.

Now for the rest of our Fall Fashion Show. Today we are featuring accessories.

Sammy is mad for plaid with this bow tie.

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

Thank you for joining us!

We are joining Chewy’s Blog Hop hosted by Oz the Terrier and Sugar Woofs.
