Yesterday our friend Madi had a rodeo and Snowball and KaTwo got to join in the fun:
Lucy and I recommended Doreen Tovey’s books when we first started blogging, but now that we have more than 2 followers we thought we would again.049
For 50 years, she wrote books about life in rural England with her husband, Siamese cats and a donkey too. I have always wanted to go to England to see her cottage even though she passed away in 2008. I read a website about Siamese Cats that also has updates about her books, etc. :
It was through that site that I came in contact with Ray Evans* who lives in Rowberrow, England. Sadly, Doreen’s cottage was torn down by the new owners. He very kindly sent me some personal photos he had of Doreen and her cottage.
Doreen Tovey & Annabel (d) 1982Doreen with Annabelle, the donkey
Doreen Tovey & catDoreen with one of her Siamese cats 1980’s
Doreen Tovey in front of cottageDoreen in front of her cottage ( 1980’s)
Mr & Mrs Tovey 1.7.1977Doreen with her husband in 1977 and their Siamese cats.
If you haven’t read any of her books, you are in for a treat. Most of them have been reprinted and are available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Mancat Monday

Happy  Mancat Monday everyone! Today is fun and games day and here is some fun for you. I know Phoebe already showed you her flat Phoebe that she sent to her purrince for his birthday:

015

I have been wanting some flat cats since seeing the photos from BlogPaws. I asked around and there are places that make them for you like pancakepets  http://www.pancakepets.com/order/ , I am sure they are the sturdiest, but I can’t afford the $50 plus $15 shipping. Sammy’s Mom ( https://onespoiledcat.wordpress.com/ ) told me about Walgreens cardboard print outs. For a 9 by 11 cardboard photo it is $14.99, but they had a coupon for half off so I got one for Phoebe and one for Sammy.

Sammy is part of the Flat Scouts so he needed a flat Sammy to travel this summer. Here it is: 013He just needs his Dad to cut it out and contact paper him. I also had one of Phoebe made to so she can take a day off once in a while and not pose for photos. Next thing you know, Joanie is going to want one of her tummy and Lucy will want one for book review days.

One more fun thing, this Friday I am co-hosting Feeling Beachie’s Follow Friday Fill-In. I would love it if you would all participate. I love reading people’s answers to these. If you are interested just say so in the comments and I will email you the fill-ins for this week.

Joanie will be showing off that tummy again tomorrow and Stinky is going to show us her tongue.

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July everyone!!!! We have lots of patriotic photos to show you so let’s get hopping. First off, I was pleasantly surprised to see Joanie’s tummy shot featured on Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade :

Caturday Art52 Snapshots of Life

Joanie4th, The theme for 52 Snapshots of Life is “Patriotic” , a few weeks ago it was “flag” so we decided to be a little different today. I have a small collection of Statues of Liberty, this one was for outside, but I didn’t want her to get damaged so she stays inside. I added a frame with ribbet so I could use the same photo for Athena’s Blog Hop too.

005Phoebe wanted to decorate her pole for the holiday too. phoebeI took this photo years ago, but Phoebe looks so cute, I had to share it.

I am glad we don’t have plans today because my cats sure do. Sammy will be at a Cat Scouts party, he is hoping they have a hot dog eating contest. sam4thand my 3 tabbies will be at the Tabby Cat Club. Have a safe and happy 4th!! Phoebe will be here tomorrow.
