Friendly Fill-Ins Week 59

Hi everyone! Before I start the fill-ins, I want to update my challenges. I have been trying to do all the suggested challenges. I did my own and wrote to a college roommate who emailed me back. I did write a poem ( well, I helped Phoebe with her banana one), I did a craft project ( crocheting), I mailed CK a gift- well played CK. 🙂 I enjoyed every moment except for the one when Sammy peed on the couch. I have been mostly patient and kind with everyone. Someone wrote to help an elderly person, not sure if this counts, but I donated a dozen bee balm plants to the senior center to give away. I try to do that every month, I have donated false shamrock and prayer plants too.

I still need to not eat meat for a day which I guess will be today. And one I doubt I can do is make a new friend with similar interests. I don’t really go many places and it takes a while to build a friendship so I can’t do that one..I enjoyed all these challenges and thank you all for the ideas.And now fill-in time.


1. A recurring dream I have is _______________________.

2. Turn ______________ into ________________________.

3.                              is driving me crazy!

4. Lately, I have been                        .
My answers:
1. A recurring dream I have is the adult version of dreaming one is in school and didn’t prepare for a test. I often dream it is Christmas Eve and guests are arriving, but I am still looking for decorations and I haven’t started cooking.
2. Turn old books into art.
Remember my pumpkin books? I have been finding more ideas on Pinterest that I will be trying soon.
3. Sammy is driving me crazy! I give him more attention than any other cat and he still acts out once in a while and pees on the couch. Luckily, I had it covered with a waterproof pad.
4. Lately, I have been trying to be more thankful for all that I have. Which reminds me, my 3 thankfuls for today are: I am thankful for all who participate in The Friendly Fill-Ins, I love learning about everyone. I am thankful strawberry season is almost over and I am thankful that Joanie is sitting on my lap as I type this.

#Chewy Influencer

Hi everyone. Today is Chewy day, but first we want to offer a moment of silence on the loss of our sweet friend Minko who sadly left his family on Father’s Day. Rest in Peace dear friend.

Here are my three things I am thankful for: I am thankful that the severe storms predicted for Monday were not bad, thankful that we didn’t lose power and thankful that my kitties get to try something from Chewy every month.

_________________________________________________________________________

*Disclaimer- We were given a bag of Blue Buffalo Kitty Cravings Chicken Crunchy Cat Treats for free in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are our own.

Sorry Mom, I am going to pass- I need to fit in my bikini.

Num Num Ooh, these are so good! Slurp!  Wow! KaTwo never eats treats and she loves these.

They are only 2 calories each, I guess I will try them. Very tasty!

And I can still fit in my bikini.

Here are the ingredients: Deboned Chicken, Chicken Meal, Brown Rice, Barley, Oatmeal, Peas, Chicken Fat, Natural Flavor, Glucono-Delta-Lactone, Potassium Chloride, Citric Acid, Preserved With Mixed Tocopherols, Oil Of Rosemary.

These must be good, all 13 cats like them. I don’t think that has ever happened.

If you want some, they are $2.79 for a 2 oz. bag. Click here.  And don’t forget that Chewy offers free shipping on orders over $49 so why not stock up on all your cats’ favorites.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 58

Hi everyone! Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins Week 58. Don’t forget to add your link at McGuffy’s Reader. You can also answer in the comment section if you didn’t write a post with them. Thank you to all who participate, it is fun learning about everyone.

1. I challenge everyone to ________________________ this week.

2. I regret disposing of _____________________________.

3. I have a difficult time admitting                                .

4. If I were given a psychic power, I would like it to be                              .
My answers:
1. I challenge everyone to call or email someone you have lost touch with this week. ( I plan to attempt everyone’s challenges this week- unless one says to not have caffeine or anything with sugar all week).
2. I regret disposing of my Weebles camper and tree house. I saved the Weebles and put those other items out for free years ago. My niece used to play with them and I wish I had them for my great-niece now.
3.I have a difficult time admitting how many cats I have to people I have just met. Most people think even 4 cats is too many and I fear that I am immediately viewed as a hoarder when I say I have 13. I know my cats are well cared for and shouldn’t care what others think.
4. If I were given a psychic power, I would like it to be the ability to communicate with the dead. I would love to deliver messages of comfort to those who are hurting.

One more thing….Emmy wants to know if she looks good in her hat?

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! I am in a foul mood and I don’t mean that I want chicken for dinner. Mom is all over that new kitty, Emmy. I just know she is saying how wonderful she is. I am pretty much deaf now so I am not sure what she is saying exactly, but I know it is about perfect Emmy. One good thing about being deaf is not having to listen to Mom’s singing anymore.

I did get to see my Grammie Thursday and Saturday. And she is going to watch us for a while on Monday- yippee! I love her so very much.

That darn Emmy has been eating my catnip Greenies. Just because I was taking a break from that flavor doesn’t mean Mom can feed them to her. Phoooey!! And I thought Brody was a problem.

I know you were hoping to see Emmy in her new hat , but today is my day and if I have to share my Greenies, I am not going to share my day of blogging.

I am going to go pout now, but first I am joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.

Caturday

HI everyone! As you can see, Emmy is enjoying herself . She really likes nip.

She doesn’t need a calming collar, but I gave her Sammy’s and then gave him a new one in the hopes of keeping the peace- so far, so good ( knock on wood, 3 times).

Yesterday, I wrote about my longest friendship. And then I remembered I had posted a photo back in 2014 of Sharon and I when we went to a painting class.

I didn’t have a tuxedo cat back then, but I do now. We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop.

Hi everyone! Emmy thanks you all for the big welcome you all gave her yesterday.

She is still working on the modeling poses. I made her a pink hat, she will try to have it on for her Sunday selfie. Can you see the dark ring around the green part of her eye? I hope to get a better photo, it is so unique and very pretty.

And the Emmy Goes to

You read that right- it’s a girl! And the Emmy goes to me 🙂 Thank you all for crossing those paws. She is even spayed already, FELV/FIV negative and no microchip so she is all mine. Emmy travels so well, not a peep out of her and it was an hour round trip plus and hour and a half waiting for our turn.

The vet wrote down she is 10, but said she could be anywhere from 6-14. Her teeth look great, but she thought her eyes looked old. I think they are just a very unique color, I am hoping to get some photos soon. She also has a heart murmur and may be hyperthyroid so I need to take her to my regular vet. We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday because I am thankful that I get to keep Emmy.

And now I will let Phoebe take over-

Thanks Mom, I was wondering when I was going to get my turn. There were lots of guesses and 12 of you guessed correctly, no chip and a girl. So I had Mom write your names down and I had Dad pull a name out of his baseball cap. And the winner is Critters in the Cottage-Congratulations!

We are praying for two of the Critters in the Cottage, Esme and Mitalee.

I am going to see Grammie today- finally! I love her so very much. I haven’t seen her since Saturday!!!

Sammy is a conehead right now. He has a small scratch on his ear, but when he scratches and shakes his head, it looks like a crime scene. Mom said she needs to hire “The Cleaner” from the TV show, The Blacklist.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. It is a Haiku titled Zen.

Wanting for nothing
except a meal and warm bed,
cats are very zen.

And here are 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. And make sure you add your link if you do a post with the fill-ins.

1. a prop from a tv show or film I would like to own is _____________________________________.

2. My oldest friendship is _________________________________.

3. Whenever I                        , I always                            .

4. The best                    is                          .

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! You caught me sharpening my nails 

I saw Grammie Thursday and Saturday. I love her so very much! I even waited for her right by the door. Sadly, I have a lot of free time now. I used to spend a lot of time giving Snowball a bath.

I miss her so much.

Mom was so worried about Snowball that our 3rd Blogoversary came and went on May 23rd. It doesn’t seem like it has been so long since we got started. We are thankful for all the friends we have made these last 3 years. And I am thankful that my purrince found me too.

We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop and The Pet Blogger Showcase. Here are some selfies:

Little too close Joanie Brody KaTwo Prancie Penny Emmy or Oscar?
