Thanksgiving Giveaway-1

Hi everyone! Welcome to our first giveaway for Thanksgiving week, but first Joanie has something to say. 

The gremlins had 2 babies and then went to hybernate now I iz stuck with them so I haz no time for book reviews.

Our first giveaway is a paperback copy of :Cats are Not Stupider on Jupiter: Vacuum Man vs. Cats (Mighty and Brennon Book 2) by Alexis Cleoford.

I reviewed book 1 of the series back in June, if you missed it you can click here

*Disclosure: I received a free Kindle version of the book in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are my own.

The second book is even better than the first. Mighty and Brennon are two house cats that want to enter a competition so they train themselves to swim. Another cat enters the competition with a Vacuum Man. After the contest, Vacuum Man somehow escapes and plans to destroy Jupiter which will affect the entire solar system. Will Mighty and Brennon be able to stop him?

This is a book written for older kids and young adults, but it is a fun read for any age. The author has set up a rafflecopter giveaway, to enter click here.

I apologize, but this giveaway is only open to US readers. The author will send the book to the winner.

If you don’t win, but want to purchase a copy you can get the Kindle version for 99 cents and the paperback for$8.99 at Amazon. Click here.

Brody wants me to tell you how he caught two bats and a rat

   Shhh! Please don’t tell him they are Halloween decorations. Mom wasn’t too happy he de-tailed the rat.

Now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter S.

SPIDERS
Some spiders are hairy
and some are scary.
Some a really big,
but most are smaller than a twig.
We have all kinds in this house
maybe I will hide one in mom’s blouse.

And now 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.

Is It Too Early For Apples?

Hi everyone! Mom has been destroying books again! Do you remember last year she made pumpkins? If not, click here.

  I didn’t want to get too close, that spray paint smells.

  Here are some of the finished apples, if you look close, you will see a worm in one of them.

All you do is take the cover off an old paperback, cut an apple shape out of the book. Then you fold the book back and glue the spine. You can also add drops of glue at the top of each page ( mom didn’t, she is lazy). Some of the books ended up with built-in stems that she painted green ( I think she should have painted them brown). And others, she added a piece of a pussy willow branch. Then she added ribbons and a worm in one 🙂

She is going to donate these to the senior center to put on tables at their monthly birthday dinner then they can give them away, but she said I could take one for a giveaway.

  I am having a giveaway of this book apple and this beautiful apple print catnip mat. Just leave a comment on today’s post before Wednesday 9PM (EST). I will announce the winner on Thursday. Feel free to tell me how beautiful I am, I don’t mind.

We are joining Create-with-Joy’s Inspire me Monday Blog Hop ( Yes, I know it is Tuesday). There are almost 200 links on this hop with lots of crafts and recipes.

PS: I hope Grammie visits me soon, I love her so very much.

 

 

Selfie Sunday and Thanks to Chewy

Hi everyone! Mom had a lot of fun at IKEA yesterday. She bought some curtains with black cats on them. And a weasel for her great-niece, I mean an easel.

Would you believe these were her main reason for wanting to go? They are children’s toys, but she buys them for us. They no longer are listed in the catalog or online so she was thrilled to find them. She bought 9 mice and 2 rats. She said some are for giveaways and I can give one away today. If you want to be entered for a chance to win, tell me in the comment section which color you will choose if you win, they come in white, gray and brown. I will announce the winner on Tuesday.

Remember my lemonade stand that I made with a CHEWY box?(click here)

Joanie was worried that we didn’t have lemonade and I told her it didn’t matter, we would still get stuff for having a lemonade stand. I was right! Look what Chewy sent us because they liked my stand.

Of course, I do all the work and Sammy tried to take the prize. We got 2 packages of treats, lots of catnip toys , including a mouse and a carrot, a wand toy, a burlap bag, a bandana and a magnet for mom’s car. Mom thinks the bag is for her, but I have claimed it as a nice spot to snooze on. Thank you Chewy!!!

I haven’t seen my Grammie since Wednesday, I hope she visits soon. I love her so very much.

Hartz Delectables Squeeze Up Cat Treats

Hi everyone! Look at all this cool stuff we got in the mail. It is like Christmas in July!

*We were sent samples of Hartz Delectables Squeeze Up Cat Treats and Hartz cat toys in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are our own.

We love these squeeze ups!

 

You can lick them right out of the package or you can squeeze them into a dish. Phoebe was too dignified to lick out of the package( Joanie wasn’t) , but she loved them in her bowl. She tried the chicken so far, but we have tuna too which I am sure will be a hit.

We are going to share our bounty by having a giveaway. One lucky winner will get some of these toys and a 4 pack of the tuna and a 4 pack of the chicken treats. Just comment on this post by Thursday 9PM (EST). We will announce the winner on Friday.

My answers:

1. My favorite thing on my daily to-do list is Blogging.

2, My least favorite thing on my daily to-do list is medicating cats. I feel bad making Millie swallow his thyroid pills and Phoebe squints when I put the thyroid meds on her ear. Polar Bear is the only easy one. I put his thyroid pill in cheese and he eats it right up.

3. I could really do without this humidity we have been having this summer.

4. I would love to have more willpower, I have none especially when it comes to junk food.

Before I go, I want to tell you about two things.

Z is for Zeppelin

Hi everyone! I am such a dip that I forgot to post my Z for the A-Z challenge in Sunday’s post.  Z is for Zeppelin. I couldn’t find a free pattern so I made it up as I went along.

And now for the fun part, I am giving everything away to 2 lucky winners. Each winner will get 11 toys and 2 hats.Just leave a comment saying which item I made was your favorite. Phoebe will announce the winners on Thursday.

We are also joining Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? blog hops.

Memoirs are my favorite genre so I read Insomniac City by Bill Hayes even though I was not familiar with his writing before reading this. I can’t even put into words how much I enjoyed this book. Mr. Hayes lost his partner in San Fransisco suddenly then he moves to NYC and finds love again with Oliver Sacks ( another author I was unfamiliar with, but will read now).

I really enjoyed his style of writing and how he chose his words. Here is one quote, ” I’ve come to believe that a good cry is like a car wash for the soul.” Another quote after describing some books falling over and making a sound ” …..that sound alone is the reason to have books. May books never disappear. ” I also enjoyed his love of NYC and all the positive encounters he has with strangers.

I feel bad that I haven’t read any cat books lately, I will soon though. I think I spotted a black and white cat last night so I put out food and something ate it, but hubby thinks it was a skunk. Time will smell, I mean tell.
