I haven’t seen my Grammie all week, she is busy with the great one- phooey! I love her so very much, I hope I get to see her soon. I am thankful to have such a wonderful Grammie so I am joining PepiSmart Dog’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

I am not looking forward to the start of July. Mom says it is her “birthday month” and she she bosses Dad around ( more than usual) and she makes Grammie go places with her like book sales. She is quite obnoxious, I could see a week, but a whole month? Wait a minute- July is my birthday month too! Dad, go pick me some fresh nip! Mom, I need fresh water ( every hour) ! Grammie, come see me!!

And the winner if my 4th of July giveaway is Lola the Rescued Cat!

Hi everyone! Do I look thin? DSCF1421 (2) I haven’t seen my Grammie since Saturday!!!!!! I love her so very much, I hope I see her soon. Mom and Dad are stingy with the treats.

DSCF1425  Mom’s Tiny Hats Book came in and she tried to make some. I don’t have thumbs and I bet I could do better.

DSCF1431 (2) DSCF1429 (2) The crown is OK, needs some bling though, but the Fedora needs more practice.

rednose  It is #RedNoseDay ! This is the best Mom could get out of us ( notice she is holding the nose on Joanie).

DSCF1423  I am thankful for all of you so I am having a giveaway. There is a catnip mat ( I am standing on it, don’t worry, I washed my feet).

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

Hi everyone! We are joining 2 hops today plus I have some great deals to tell you about.

First off, we are joining Comedy Plus for Awww…Mondays.

DSCF1302 (2) Another Brody sighting. He is really starting to catch on, he doesn’t run as fast through the room- I think that was startling everyone. Plus he investigates things, last night he climbed Phoebe’s pole and was walking along the curtain rod. I tried to get a photo, but he got down too quickly. He was watching Joanie sit on my lap so maybe someday he will realize that can be fun.

And for The Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? I am reading Love The House You’re In by Page Rien. I was getting depressed watching Flip or Flop, knowing I could never make such big changes to my home, this book made me appreciate what I have and find ways to make our home reflect all we love. Being that it is filled with cats, I have that part covered.  badge

Now for those deals. I know many of you were interested in the book, Yarned and Dangerous by Sadie Hartwell. She commented yesterday to let us know the Kindle is version is on sale for $2.99. Here is the link.

And for those of you that want some high quality nip ( blends contain silvervine and valerian) from Cat-A-Bliss on Etsy, you can get 10% off for the rest of the month by using the code: 15ANDMEOWING

Phoebe couldn’t get into our latest delivery fast enough ( she may have a nip problem)

 

V is for Vi-Purrs

Hi everyone! Today is V day for the A-Z Blogging Challenge . I have been looking forward  to V because I get to tell you about one of my favorite authors. As most of you know, I prefer non-fiction, but I love all of Jeanne Foguth’s books which are fiction. I wrote about her Sea Purrtector Files last November and this is the latest in the series.

vi-purrs The Vi-Purrs is the third book in the series, there is also a short prequel called Lattitudes and Cattitudes which is currently free on Amazon-click here. Xander de Hunter is the 007 of the cat world and works for Catamondo. He is assisted by a fun mix of characters including, Mischief, a kitten in training who happens to love water. The author happens to have a cat that loves water, if you are not familiar with Purrseidon, you should visit her blog. And for a more complete description of the series click here.

Special catnip blends are written about in these books so the author’s daughter decided to make her own blends, you can read about that by clicking here. My cats have been “testers” and all the blends they tried were enjoyed. The great news is that there is now an Etsy store to purchase these Cat-A-Bliss blends. I purchased some silvervine sticks a few days ago and they already arrived:Cat-a-Bliss

One of her blends helped rescue a cat this past weekend. If you want to get on your cat’s good side, you should order a special blend, click here to go to Etsy.

I apologize for all the links, but I love this series and hope you will get your free prequel and hopefully want to read the other 3 books. I am also impressed at how much work Jeanne’s daughter has put into making these special blends and I hope you will want to buy some.
