Butterfly Selfie

Hi everyone! Today I thought I would have a little contest. My Dad loves to photograph butterflies and has been interested in them since he was a kid. He had never seen this butterfly before until last week when one was on our coneflowers.

Do you know what kind it is? If so, put your answer in the comment section for a chance to win a catnip mat made with this beautiful butterfly pattern.

   If more than one of you gets it correct, I will put your names into a drawing to choose the winner. You only have until 9PM (EST) Sunday to submit your answer.

Grammie did come to see me on Thursday. I love her so very much. And she is going to stay with us Monday while Mom and Dad meet Dad’s sister for lunch. Party time!!!

I am joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.

Toy Tuesday

Hi everyone! I thought it would be fun to have a little contest today. My Mom and I babysit on Thursday and Friday for my great-niece ( her great grand-daughter). We have been having a little trouble figuring out baby toys from cat and dog toys. The other day, one was in the dog’s toy basket and I picked it out. My Mom said, “that is Nora’s , give it to her” so I did and the dog was more than happy to play with it. Turns out it was a baby toy, one of the cats had knocked it off the counter into the dog’s toy basket.

Another day, I asked my niece why the baby was playing with a cat toy. She said she even double checked the tag to be sure it was a baby toy.

I have 3 photos below, the first person to identify all 3 toys correctly will win some crocheted catnip toys ( for cats). Just list the number and if you think it is a dog, cat or baby toy. Good Luck! It is trickier than it looks.

Downton Abbey Contest

Hi everyone! Tonight is the last episode of Downton Abbey so Mom said I could do a giveaway. Well, it is more of a contest and the winner will get the book, Downton Tabby. Here is a link to see if because we just ordered it today so I can’t get in a photo with it.

DSCF0621Mom is even letting me use her finest china so I can pretend to live at Downton.

I have a list of questions for you to answer as to how the series will end. The one to get the most ( or all correct wins). If more than one does, then I will have to draw names. All answers must be in by 9 PM EST

  1. Will Lady Edith end up alone? We are hoping Marigold’s father is still alive and was in a coma then magically reappears.
  2. Will Anna and Bates have their baby and live happily ever after or will we find out he is a sociopath like Mom thinks he is?
  3. Do you think anyone will die? Who?

Monday

Happy Monday everyone! Today is fun and games day so instead of thinking outside the box like I usually try to do, I am sticking with a box. I bought a bunch of these boxes on sale at Home Depot last week for 69cents/each. I am going to use most for my decluttering project, but I got a couple extra for the kitties.

I also want to tell you about a contest I saw listed in Woman’s World Magazine. Its not really a contest, but something they do every month. You can send a photo of your pet and if they publish it, you get $100. You email your photo to LoveandLaughter@WomansWorldmag.com

Phoebe will see you tomorrow for Cinco de Mayo! And a giveaway…….

R is for Rachael Ray

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today is R day on the a-z blogging challenge. I chose Rachael Ray for my R so I could tell you about a giveaway she is having. She is giving one lucky winner $1,000- just think of all the cat food, treats, toys and litter that could buy. Or it could be put away for medical expenses or donated to a shelter- so many great uses.

All you need to do is take a photo of your pet and post it on Instagram @womansdaymag with the tag #nutrishgoodpetcontest

I am off to join Instagram. Have a nice day and don’t forget to comment for a chance to win the catnip mat and crocheted catnip chicken legs:016Phoebe will announce a winner on Thursday.

Phooey!

Hi everyone! I apologize in advance for my mood. I haven’t been eating as much for a couple days so Mom , the drama queen is taking me to the vet this morning- at 8 AM!! She best have that car all warmed up!!! I just figured I would cut back on snacks so I would have a nice figure now that I am a celebrity and all. Mom thinks I have a tooth issue or a furball.

OK, I admit that yesterday I felt a little under the weather. I wanted to take a nap in my favorite spot on my pillow and look what I found: 018My pillow is clearly marked with a P- you’d think a Cat Scout would know the alphabet. Sammy has a great sleeping spot, the top bunk bed. Did you know we have a custom made bunk bed that takes crib mattresses specially made for us? Sammy has claimed the top, he even has a naughty photo up there020but instead he takes my spot. I was a little miffed and I usually am very sweet019. Well, today I am a lot miffed. I don’t like leaving the house. The only good part would be if I get to see a tractor trailer truck. I love trucks, I even watch for the garbage truck. Maybe my Grammie will visit me, that would make me happy because I love her so very much.

Don’t forget to measure your tails. So far, Waffles is ahead of Millie at 15 inches. This is just a fun contest, all tails are beautiful because they are attached to us kitties and we are the most wonderful creatures on the earth ( that is what Mom says).Winner will be announced Sunday. 003I got my spot back 🙂

See you Sunday everyone! I am thankful for all my friends in the blogging world! We finally remembered to hop:www.PepiSmartDog.com, Thankful Thursday Weekly Blog Hop, pet centric

Selfie Sunday

001

Happy Selfie Sunday everyone! Sunday is my favorite day because I get to write and then I get to watch Downton Abbey. I must have dozed off during Downton last week because I heard Mom say Lady Mary gave her boyfriend some free milk and now he probably wasn’t going to buy a cow??? I didn’t see her give him any milk and why would he want to buy a cow? I am very confused now and hope I can figure it out this week. I wish someone would give me some free milk- Mom never gives us milk.

I came up with a fun contest, this is really a contest, not a giveaway. You know my shoe loving brother, Millie.016

Well, he has an extremely long tail. Dad measured it and it is 14 inches. Can anyone top that? If you can, then you will win a prize. If there are more than one that can, the prize goes to the longest and if that is a tie then we will do a drawing to pick the winner. You have until next Saturday to enter.004

My Grammie came over Friday and gave us lots of treats ( don’t tell my siblings, but she gave me a dollar too) . She is the best Grammie.. she is supposed to see us tomorrow, but it might snow so she probably won’t get to- phooey!! I love her so very much.

Speaking of snow, I watched Mom and Dad build a snowman yesterday:010Those are my eyes glowing. And here is Dad with the snowman:012. Have a nice week everyone- I will see you Thursday.Cat4

 

 

Sunday with Phoebe

Hi, this is Phoebe-today is not a happy Sunday. We were all sad to hear of the loss of Nylablue- our purrs and  prayers are with her family.

This week is Thanksgiving and I want to tell you what happened to us last year right after Thanksgiving. A little elf showed up the very next day and said he was watching us every day to make sure we were good. He was going to fly back to the North Pole at night and give Santa reports on our behavior. Well, we didn’t like that idea because we can be a little naughty from time to time. So we all chased that little sucker around like a mouse-this is how it ended:

elfMommy went to LOLCATS and made this. We never saw him again and I don’t think he will be back. I know we are a little naughty, but that is part of our job description as cats. Last year Joanie got coal in her stocking: 006

It was just a joke though, it was good coal- the catnip kind. My first giveaway is going to be 2 pieces of catnip coal. To enter, just comment today or tomorrow and tell me the naughtiest thing you ever did. I will pick who I think is the naughtiest and have mom mail the coal to you. Next week I will have another giveaway that the winner can pick a crocheted gift for their mom or dad.

Here is a Sammy selfie: 018he has cute freckles on his nose.

We are participating in Selfie Sundays:Cat4

And this is my new scarf mom made for me: 009I can’t wait for Thanksgiving to spend time with my Grammie.

 

Kitties Have a Ball with Eyeballs

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a nice weekend. I have been busy working on this year’s Halloween costumes for the kitties. I love Halloween and have almost as many decorations as I do for Christmas. I don’t know why I decorate though because we never have Trick or Treaters or a party, but at least we enjoy it. This guy gives me a fright every year for the first couple days he is out: 011Stinky is brave though.

I love to go to the Dollar Tree and get a package of eyeballs for the kitties to play with. There are 12 in a package so that is under 10 cents a piece- you aren’t going to find any cat toys at the pet store that cheap. Plus I think it is a hoot  watching them bat eyeballs around and they all seem to enjoy them too.

I know I just had a giveaway, but I thought I would do another one with some eyeballs- the Dollar Tree kind and a couple crocheted ones that I crocheted ( catnip included).  004

Some of my cats are not as cooperative as others with the costumes , here is Polar Bear with his 2 wives, Tallulah and Noel .blog2The first person to guess what they are supposed to be wins the eyeballs.Sorry this is for US readers only because it would cost me way more to ship than the actual cost of the prize.

And the winner of this weekend’s giveaway for breast cancer awareness is: Marty the Manx-Congratulations!!! I will be emailing you for your address. Thanks to everyone who commented, I truly appreciate your participation.

We Can Haz Cheezburger Today

Happy Monday everyone! It is also National Cheeseburger Day today and to celebrate I thought the cats would enjoy their own cheeseburger.

001 Yesterday I had my hubby go to Wendy’s in the next town and get a cheeseburger for the cats. We have a McDonald’s in town, but I wouldn’t even let my cats eat that mystery meat. My husband did comment that I am strange- just because I was splitting a cheeseburger 15 ways- what’s wrong with that?

Well, it turns out that cats don’t really want cheezeburgers- none of them would touch it. Snowball ate some of the bun, but that was all. I don’t get why that I Can Haz Cheezburger saying is so popular.

My hubby and I are going to go to the 99 Restaurant later- all their burgers are $5 today. Have a nice day everyone and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter to enter our contest ( see Friday’s post). If you don’t have Twitter, you can just comment here.Thank you for reading.
