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 🙂

We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

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.

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.

1. I would never be friends with someone who _____________________________.

2. I will never refuse _____________________________.

3. I have never been to _______________________ , but                              .

4. When it comes to   _________________    , I                              .


National Coloring Day

Hi everyone! Lots going on today. First off, I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that I got to spend quality time with Grammie on Monday. I love her so very much.

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. I used all 4 word prompts.

Letter to Santa
Santa you don’t need to send an elf
I will tell you who has been naughty
that elf can sit on someone else’s shelf
Sammy and Penny have issues with the potty
Really, I am the only one that’s nice
the only normal one too
None of my siblings deserve new toy mice
or any gift from you
Sammy, Brody and Emmy like to fight
I could use a new harness dress
size small, I am very light
make it pretty, I have a purrince to impress
PS: Don’t use the chimney
it leads to the furnace
I will leave you a key
so you don’t burn your jolly a**

Today is National Coloring Day so I thought I would have a giveaway to celebrate.

Just leave a comment on today’s post for a chance to win this coloring book for your human and I will be sure mom makes some crocheted toys for you too. I will announce the winner on Sunday. Feel free to tell me how beautiful I am, you would think I would get sick of hearing that, but I never do.

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.

1. I have broken __________________ bones.

2. When I go out to breakfast, I order___________________________.
3. As Summer officially comes to an end,                                  .

4. Before this year is over, I really need to                                 .


Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I have had a great week. I got to see my Grammie. I love her so very much. And I got a letter in the mail from my purrince with a photo of him cuddled up to a photo of me. I am such a lucky girl.

My mom actually bought me some treats. And look-we found a 4-leaf clover. Mom thinks she found it, but I led her right to it. Don’t worry, I didn’t eat it- she put it in her checkbook, she said that needs all the luck it can get- MOL!

Poor Daddy, he was carrying me across the street and a neighbor drove by and beeped and was laughing at him. What is so funny about a man carrying a pretty kitty in a pink dress?

This week for Sammy’s Poetry Day, I decided to choose my own M word. I chose my fellow Crotchety Cougar, Madi to write about.

Madi is everyone’s friend
on her, you can always depend
Her favorite color is red,
she loves to nap on the bed.
Madi is also a Cat Scout
she would never pout
She doesn’t have a single quirk
and boy that girl can twerk!

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. September bucket list: 1. _________________ 2. ________________…………..………………..

2. If I came with a warning label, it would say ___________________________________________.

3. Truth be told,                         .

4. I would rather                      than                           .


Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! Check out all this hay! I forgot how much I love hay. I used to steal it from the rabbits when we had them.

Mom locked Dad out of the house at 11 PM the other night. No, they weren’t fighting, mom just isn’t too bright. Dad had gone out to get a breath of air and bring the flag inside, but mom thought he was in the bathroom. She went in the kitchen and noticed the porch light on and the door unlocked and thought he had forgotten them so she shut the light off and locked up. Then the doorbell rang and she got scared wondering who would be at the door at that hour-MOL!

She was supposed to be decluttering today, but she ended up at a tag sale. She was all proud that she got a telescope for Dad for $3 until she got it home and he pointed out that it was missing an eyepiece. I really think I should write a book about all the stupid things she does.

I got to see Grammie on Thursday, I love her so very much. She got to see me walking on my harness.

Millie and Penny want to do selfies today so here they are:

We are joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop and The Pet Blogger Showcase.

Brody wanted to do a selfie and give a shout out to his sweet Leia.

My purrince wrote me another poem, I am so lucky.
