Selfie Sunday with Phoebe

Happy Sunday everyone! I am very happy because this week all the Christmas cd’s will get put away until Thanksgiving. Mom says we have to wait for the 3 Kings on January 6th. They must sneak in like Santa because I have never seen them. She says they bring gifts, but I have never gotten one from them. That is Dad’s birthday too so I always figured she put the Christmas music away and stopped singing as a gift to Dad. Mom hasn’t been singing anyway because of her cold.

Sammy got his first kiss on New Year’s Eve at Cat Scouts. He has been courting Maggie since Valentine’s Day and he finally asked for a smooch. It was his first kiss if you don’t count the 500 a day that the Mama’s boy he gets from Mom every day.

We got a WordPress report card the other day :http://jetpack.me/annual-report/69595807/2015/

I want to thank our top 5 commenters of the year:

And thank you to everyone who has commented! My sweet purrince loves me a lot to comment 683 times last year. And I love him too. And you know who I love so very much? My Grammie- I got to see her yesterday.

Here’s my selfie. I was so excited when Mom came home with this, I thought it was to store cat treats in, but she said no- phooey! Can anyone guess what she is planning to put in this?

And the winner of the Grumpy Cat Giveaway is Mario – Congratulations! And don’t worry, Mom will include some catnip toys for you.

Hopping with Phoebe

Hi everyone! I know Saturday is not usually my day, but Mom says she is under the weather so she is letting me post. I don’t understand though because she is sitting on the couch , she is not under anything except a blanket.

003Grammie was with us New Year’s Eve. I love her so very much. Mom and Dad were only gone for 2 hours, but Grammie gave us treats twice.

This week we only have one hop and a parade. For Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop I used ribbet to add some text to my giveaway photo.Phoebe giveaway

And I am joining Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade

The 2016 New Year celebration for animals and all pets. Come join the fun with cats, dogs, rabbits.. all your favorites

Happy New Year! Guest Post from Cat Scout Felix

Happy 2016 everyone!  We are lucky to have Cat Scout Felix here to start out our year! .  Felixdressed

 

Hello, Everyone~!  I wish you all a very Happy New Year, filled with good health and good times!  I thought this would be a handy time to post some of my hopes for 2016, and I invite all of you to check out Cat Scouts if you have never visited.  We are an active group of kitties who do good works, share wonderful companionship and mutual support, engage in “higher learning” and pawticipate in some awesome educational and recreational events throughout the year.

We are sure since you follow the 15 and Meowing kitties that you are already active in  feline rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing efforts around the country.  For those of you who might not yet be engaged in any of those activities, we urge you to do so!  We cats can really make a difference when our humane activities and advocacy are shared across the social media platforms.  Yes, YOUR VOICE can make a difference in improving the lives of stray and feral kitties, foster and rescue programs,card2 and emergency relief during natural or man-made disasters.

If you’re already involved in any of these efforts, tell a friend and try to get more peeps and kitties involved!  If you’re a little hesitant because you “don’t have time, or aren’t sure what’s needed,” just jump in and get involved in your neighborhood, your state or your region.  Feline advocates around the world are very articulate and outspoken, so your voice will really count!  Your involvement with or support of rescue and advocacy efforts near you will be so rewarding to you and the beneficiaries!~

I hope for warm hearts and homes for all of the outdoor kitties who will be in distress this Winter.  I hope when there is a humane issue in your community, YOU let your voice be heard.  I hope for peace throughout the world, where our fellow animals suffer along with their humans due to war and other upheavals.

Wishing all of you purrs and rubs for a wonderful 2016!

wishes

Thank you for a great post Felix. Wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2016! Be sure to comment for a chance to win this Grumpy Cat stuff- and of course, I will add in some crocheted toys. 004

 

 

 

A Grumpy Cat Giveaway

Happy Thursday everyone! I am going to tell you more about our Christmas and then I will tell you about my latest giveaway.

003In addition to all the individual gifts and the fun cat box with holes in it, Peaches and Paprika’s Mom gave us this pretty reindeer blanket. I am displaying it over our bunk beds, I am on the top bunk and the bottom bunk is hidden for a great hideaway.

005Look what else Grammie gave me! I love her so very much! And she is cat sitting us tonight so we are going to get lots of party mix. Notice that is not George Washington on that bill. I am rich, don’t worry, I won’t let it go to my head.

010Mom bought a clear plastic ball that opens to put a photo in so Lucy was on our tree.

Mom got a gift that wasn’t cat related, it is a talking Sheldon ornament.

One thing he says is “I’m not crazy, my mother had me tested.” I think Grammie should have had Mom tested- MOL!

Now for that giveaway:

004 I have a small Grumpy Cat wall Calendar, a Grumpy Cat decal and some Grumpy Cat stickers. Comment for a chance to win, I will announce the winner on Sunday. You can comment every day for more chances to win.

I am joining PepiSmart Dog’s Thankful Thursday Hop because I am a lucky girl. I am thankful for my family ( especially my Grammie who I love so very much) and for my Purrince and for all my friends. I wish you all a Happy and Healthy 2016!!!

ROAR

Happy Wednesday everyone! I was going to try a Wordless Wednesday post this week, but a fellow blogger needs help so I thought I would spread the word and do a ROAR. I am sure you all know the service cats, Dezi and Lexi. Well, Lexi is going to be needing some expensive medicine and her Mom is on a limited income. She has a donation button on her blog if anoyne wants to help: https://dezizworld.wordpress.com/2015/01/20/whoathats-a-needle/ . Purrs and prayers are always appreciated too.

Today is the last day to enter the stuffed Grumpy cat giveaway. Phoebe will be announcung the winner tomorrow. She will also be asking me lots of questions for “Answer your cat’s questions day”- I hope I have some answers.

Have a nice day everyone!005

Monday

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a nice weekend. I finally got the Christmas tree down and everything put away except anything with a snowman, those stay up until Valentine’s Day. Sammy had a great time at Cat Scouts, they went skiing and check out his snowboarding moves: sammysnowboardThank you to whoever helped him do this.

Today is fun and games day so I looked for something on Pinterest. You know those seen on tv arches that look like a big brush that cost $20. Well, you can make your own much cheaper with 2 toilet bowl brushes from the dollar store. I actually had some carpeted wood pieces I saved from an old cat tree ( and I have the nerve to call the hubby a hoarder 🙂 ) Here is the link to the directions: http://www.lovepetsdiy.com/diy-self-petting-station-for-cats/  If you follow the directions, yours will look like the real thing. I am not a fan of directions and I am quite lazy…..

My board already had one hole in it so I just used that and stuck the brush part of the toilet brush in it. Mine is shorter, but my cats seemed to like it, especially Lucy. I had to hide it though because Joanie thought it was fun to chew on and I worried it would break apart being that is was so cheap. 021020

Happy Martin Luther King Day everyone!
