Thankful Thursday

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

  I am thankful that I got to come home from our road trip. Mom and Dad took me on a road trip, but it easn’t fun. I was afraid they were going to abandon me. My cardiologist is almost an hour away.  Mom packed my gray mouse for the ride ( I wanted to take the brown one).  I don’t have to go back for 6 months now. I need to take 1/4 of a pill daily, but mom said I can have it in cheese so that isn’t bad. Tallulah is having a dental today, she has a lot of resorption.

I thought I would try a poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, we had to write one based on this photo:

A crowd on the beach,
is someone giving a speech?
Maybe they caught a big fish,
that would make a tasty dish.
Maybe it is a seagull or other bird,
those are tasty too, I’ve heard.
Nope, just a dude on a surf board
nothing worth heading toward.

And 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. When I am nervous, I ________________.

2. When I an angry, I ________________.
3. Today, I know for sure                         .

Curious as a Cathy #WW



A Hopping Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww. .. Mondays, McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks and Curious as a Cathy Mewsic Moves Me Blog Hops. Once again, I am skipping the book hop because I haven’t read anything this week worth writing about.

The Mewsic theme this week is TV or Movie theme songs. There are so many that I love, it was tough to narrow it down.

  1. Laverne and Shirley Theme Song ( I used to love this show. My friend and I would pretend to be them, I always wanted to be Shirley). Even as a child, I loved their optimism.

2. Family Ties Theme Song. I loved this show when I was in high school.

3. Fame

4. My all-time favorite-The Nanny. I used to have my own version for KaChoo.

And here is my Spark- Keep Calm and Sing Soft Kitty. It isn’t a theme song, but it is on Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon often.

Emmy wants me to remind everyone they have until Tuesday 9PM EST to enter her Dr. Seuss Giveaway. Just comment on yesterday’s post to enter.

Ten Things of Thankful

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art and Ten Things of Thankful Blog Hops.

Our art today is a puzzle of Emmy. I love doing online puzzles from Colehaus Cats , Basil and One Spoiled Cat so I decided to make one of Emmy. When you got to the page, it is labeled Phoebe because I made one of her last year. Emmy is wearing a Dr. Seuss hat in anticipation of Dr. Seuss Day. Tomorrow she will announce a giveaway to celebrate.

It took me 22 minutes and 51 seconds, I guarantee you that you can beat that.

Here are my thankfuls-

  1. Tallulah’s ultrasound on her heart was good. She can now have her dental which she needs because she has tooth resorption.
  2. Online puzzles- they are so fun.
  3. Toys-I love playing with the great one and her fun toys.
  4. Some nice days that felt like Spring.
  5. Allegra and Benadryl-especially helpful when I have something with MSG.
  6. The Olympics are almost over- new tv shows next week.
  7. Coffee with a friend.
  8. 8 A walk with the hubby.
  9. My shopping trip planned for today with my family.
  10. Didn’t read much this week, but I got lots of crocheting done.



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.
