Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone. As you know , it has been a sad week in the blogging world.  And now another sweet kitty , Sister Precious of Brian’s World has left for The Rainbow Bridge. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.

We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.

I hope you don’t mind, but this is a selfie taken last month. Mom couldn’t get her memory card to upload into the laptop. I hope she figures it out soon because we have a Chewy review to do. Plus I got a cool new bed I want to tell you about ( if you follow us on Instagram you already had a sneak peek).

I called my Grammie on Friday night, all by myself. My folks joke that I make phone calls because I take the landline off the hook when I want a snack. I have also taught Joanie this trick too. Well, I took it off the hook and hit redial and got my Grammie. I scared her a little though because she was already in bed- sorry Grammie.

Be sure to visit tomorrow. I am starting a giveaway for a copy of my book. Plus I will tell you where you can get one too.

 

Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

  Trouble is mad at her Grammie. She was cat sitting yesterday and 5 minutes after we left, she heard a big crash. A bunch of stuff was knocked over in the living room and all paws pointed to Trouble so she got put in a time out in the PTU. On Black Cat Appreciation Day!

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone. Before we get started we want to offer condolences to Colehaus Cats who had to say goodbye to beautiful Ruby. If you haven’t visited yet, be sure to click on the link above.

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that I have a Grammie person. She is the best! Look what she bought for me. I was so happy, I did a handstand.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day to go with this photo:

Juicy and so sweet
all animals enjoy it
mmmm….watermelon.
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

Everyone told me that Grammie is wonderful and gives out lots of treats. Well, she did give out treats, but she is a squealer.. She told my Mom that I had a mouthful of Brody’s fur. Then she said Sammy was better behaved than I was and that I eat faster than he does.

This is what I think of Grammie.

In my defense, Mom saw me chase Sammy when he chased Brody.

 

Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone! I have been letting Joanie and Emmy get too much blog time lately so I thought I would write today.

Look what Grammie bought for us. I love Grammie and not just because she brings goodies.

Grammie and mom went shopping the other day. I won’t say the name of the mart store because some of you don’t like that store. Mom got the great one some Minnie Mouse pajamas for $1 and she got a onesie for the great one’s baby sister ( arriving in June). It was only 25 cents !
Mom was so happy with it until Grammie saw it and said, ” my aunt is SINGLE and fun? ” Mom somehow missed the single part- oops! Oh well, they do have a single aunt too 🙂

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Today we are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop and Sammy’s Poetry Day.

I am thankful that my folks never get mad at me. Look at the paper I shredded and they just laugh and say I am an artist. .Sorry about the laser eyes, mom could use a photography class. I am also thankful that I will get to see my Grammie today.

And here is my poem based on this photo:

A little over a year ago,
can’t remember if there was snow.
Our friend, Sammy was ready to leave
his passing everyone would grieve.
Before he left, he took a ride
in a hot air balloon, riding inside.
We each showed him a special place
we chose Emily Dickinson’s birth place.
I know you already know it,
but Sammy was an excellent poet.
More than that , he was a friend to all
and when he left, we all did bawl.

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.


1. I have never been able to _____________________.

2. I wish I could still ___________________.

3.  ____ is my ideal winter night.

4.                      and                      .

 

 

Santa Was Good to Us

Hi everyone! We hope you all had a nice Christmas.

Sammy thinks Santa left him cookies

Grammie got me lots of treats

Emmy got a brown mouse in her stocking

Mommy got Daddy a telescope ( this is him assembling it)

 

Millie opened this big container of treats from Grammie

KaTwo got these toys from Grammie

And Joanie got her Gremlin, she named him Gremmie

We think maybe Grammie is the real Santa.

Mom even did something stupid for me to write about. She was making gingerbread truffles so she melted white chocolate in the microwave. She thought she set it for a minute and wandered off, when she got back in the room, the microwave was still on and she realized she hit an extra zero so it was set for 10 minutes. Luckily, it had only been 3 minutes, enough to ruin the chocolate, but she was able to save the bowl.

 

Happy Birthday Grammie!

Hi everyone! Today is a special day, it is Grammie’s Birthday! We all love you very much!

Another Hopping Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining three hops today, but first I would like to ask for purrs and prayers for our friend Astrid of Four-Legged Furballs. She had surgery on what was thought to be a benign tumor, but now needs more surgery because it is a malignancy. Her mom is very worried so please pray for her too.

First off is Joanie’s review:

I haz no time for review this week. Halloween only 2 weeks away and I needz costume.

Sammy and I thank Grammie for late birthday gifts. 

The book I am going to review ties in with my “Spark” for this week.

Einstein and the Rabbi: Searching for the Soul by Naomi Levy is an amazing book. The author was inspired by a letter that Einstein wrote to a man who had lost his son.She searches for the man and many others whose lives he had touched. Her search is only part of the book though, she also offers ways we can connect with our soul. One way is through meditation, she recommends just meditating on the word “husa”. I was not familiar with the term before reading this book. It means an artists love for his ( or her) creation even if it is flawed. Much like we are all flawed, but God still loves us. By meditating on this we will become more forgiving and soften our judgement of others and ourselves.

So my spark for the week is simply, husa.

I am joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays, Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? And Sparks by McGuffy’s Reader. Sparks is a new hop, this is week two. The goal is to make the world brighter by each posting a positive quote or photo.

 

 

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Mom said I could write a post today to give an update. Plus I am thankful to still be here so I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Mom and I are also thankful for all the purrs and prayers and words of encouragement  and advice you have all left. You are giving us strength. Mom says she will try to visit some blogs today, but I am a high maintenance kitty right now. We will blog sporadically for now.

I have stage 4 kidney disease (not sure how I skipped stage 3). My smother and dad are feeding me with a syringe. They have been doing it every few hours for over 24 hours and I haven’t yacked yet. They are hoping I will eat again on my own soon. We are waiting for a compounding pharmacy to mail my phosphorous binder. Have any of you ever tried that? Mom paid extra for overnight delivery, but they took 2 days to get it ready to ship- phooey! I also get fluids at home every other day.

I was strong enough to make both of my folks bleed yesterday. I chomped mom’s finger when she gave me a pill and I scratched dad when he was holding me to be fed.

I have been still going out twice a day. And Grammie came to see me- I love her so very much! She gave my $5 because I don’t want treats right now.

I think I look pretty darn good for being so sick.

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, just a haiku.

Out
I love to go out
fresh wind on my pretty face
warm sun on my back

I love you all and hope to see you soon! One more thing, here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for Friday. Not sure if we will do them, but Annie at McGuffy’s Reader will. Mom came up with the first two and Annie came up with the second two. Mom will definitely read everyone’s posts too.
