Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day

Hi everyone! We are doing a lot of hopping today plus I have to answer my cats’ questions. We are joining McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks, It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading ? and Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays.

I chose Emmy to pose with the book I am reading because she reminds me of Miss Cuddlywumps. I am reading Roby Sweet’s The Ides of October, book 2 in her series. I LOVE this series, it is definitely my favorite cat cozy mystery series. I love that Miss Cuddlywumps has a big role in solving the mysteries. She is very intelligent and looks down on her human which is how I think Emmy feels about me 🙂

My Spark for today is a quote from Anne Frank, ” We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same. ”

We are all different, but we do all want to be happy. Maybe if we all paid attention to similarities instead of differences then people would get along better.

And now for the questions:

Sammy- Why can’t I beat up Brody? Sorry Sammy, Brody is a sweet boy and it is not nice to beat up other kitties.

Joanie- Can I get another gremlin to keep Gremmie company? Sorry, one is enough. You do a good job keeping him company.

Emmy- Why do you feed me canned slop when I would prefer a hamburger, cheese or chicken?  I know you love those things, but they are not as good for you as canned “slop”.

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! We are joining McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks, Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? blog hops.

Today we celebrate Martin Luther King Day in the USA so I chose a quote from him for my Spark: “Faith is taking that first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”

I hope we are all brave enough and have enough faith to take that first step to wherever we want to be.

Now that Joanie has Gremmie under control , she has a book review.  I read, French for Cats: All the French Your Cats Will Ever Need by Henry Beard. Here are some words I learned.

I purr- Je ronronne

I sleep -Je dors

the mouse -la souris

the fish-le poisson

I think I am going to cough up a fur ball- Je crois que je vaid cracher une boule de poils

I don’t know why they call fish poison, it not poison, it is tasty.

Thank you Joanie, I think your gremlin needs you now.

I have also been reading a lot.  Before Christmas, I won Jackson Galaxy’s new book, Total Cat Mojo from Caren and Cody’s blog.  I have been learning a lot from it. I sometimes think I know everything about cats after living with so many for so long, but that is definitely not the case. He actually recommends having a litter box in the bedroom and living room. Apparently, cats don’t like the privacy we do when going potty. Maybe that is why they like to join us in the bathroom 🙂

 

At the moment, we are not having issues, but if any do come up, I will try a box in one of those places despite not really wanting to have one in those areas. If you haven’t read this yet, I highly recommend it.  ( I won a copy of the book, but I am under no obligation to review it. I just like to tell people about good books).

My answers:
1. I would like to ask Nicolas Cage why he chooses to be in such crappy movies lately?  OK, if I ever get to meet him, I wouldn’t really say that.
2. My favorite fast food restaurant is Burger King, I am actually glad the closest one is 30 minutes away. Wendy’s isn’t bad either, I like their chilli.
3. If I could go to any concert of someone still performing, it would be Rob Thomas. I have been to many concerts over the years, but I have yet to see Rob Thomas or Matchbox 20 which he was a member of.
4. My winter pastime is usually crocheting, because it is more fun to work with yarn when it is cold than when it is too hot.

Sammy’s sweater looks better from this angle.

Wordless Wednesday

Emmy and I thank you all for the purrs and prayers. The full report with the proper terms was not ready yet, but for now Emmy is good. She needs a recheck in 6 months to be sure he heart isn’t enlarged. I was told it was not a normal cat heart and not something they normally see. There was something wrong with blood flow, but I had pulled over in my car and didn’t have a pen and paper with me to write things down. I will explain it more when I find out.  We are also waiting on blood work for her thyroid, it was close to being hyperactive when I first got her. She sure is happy to be back home.

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! Now that the holidays are over and I am trapped in the house due to the cold weather, I have had time to read. We are joining The Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? , McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks and Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays.

My Spark is a quote from the author of the book I am recommending. Not sure how I have never heard of Joy Mangano, but until I read her book, I had no idea who she was. I like memoirs and reading how people become successful so I got Inventing Joy by Joy Mangano from the library. If you are not familiar with her, she has invented many products and her first was the wonder mop.

Actually, she started inventing things when she was a kid, but didn’t follow through until she was a single mom with three kids. She now has a huge empire and is a permanent feature on HSN. Her story was very interesting and a reminder that no one is an overnight success, years of hard work go into any successful endeavor.

There is a movie about her too with Jennifer Lawrence playing Joy. I haven’t seen it yet, but I ordered it up from the library and hope to pick it up tomorrow. If you are looking for some motivation this year, I highly recommend her book. It is part memoir and part self-help, with several pages of quotes at the end.

My spark for today is on of Joy’s quotes, ” No matter who you are or where you’re from, you have the power to change the world. ”

Sammy wants to know if he looks fat in his sweater?

If you donated to our friend Toby’s dental, we want to thank you for your generosity. And I want to let you know I am mailing all the packages out today( except for one I am waiting for an address on) of the mats and toys. Sorry for the delay, but it took me a while to make everything and then the weather turned bitterly cold. Also thanks to all who shared and are praying it goes well.

One more thing, please purr and pray for McGuffy’s Reader’s Kenzie, The Cat on My Head’s Cooper Murphy ,Timmy Tomcat’s Mr. Buttons and FurEverywhere’s Milita as they are all not feeling well at this time.
