We will show you our Bobble hat selfies in a minute, but I must vent first.I have been planning a Valentine’s giveaway, I even had a nice pink catnip mat with hearts on it set aside. Well, I found out today that suck up Brody asked Mom if he could send it to a girl kitty he likes and she let him!!!! She even mailed it for him today. Phooey!

I am very happy I got to see my Grammie on Saturday, I love her so very much. She even brought me an early Valentine’s gift ( I have to share).

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! First off, Mom apologizes about yesterday’s post. She wrote the comments were off, but then in the morning there were comments so she closed them again. She does appreciate everyone’s kind words though- thank you.

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Snowball is thankful for me. And I am thankful that I saw Grammie and got some treats too. I love her so very much.

Mom is thankful that she won this beautiful necklace from The Tiniest Tiger.

It is a cat on the moon.

Many of you were interested in our toy fish. It is a children’s toy that Mom bought at a discount store called Ocean State Job Lot. She just ordered 2 on ebay though so I can have a giveaway when they arrive.

Jinx wants to date Toby’s sister, PeggySue. Toby wanted to get a good look at him first so here he is:

He is almost 15 , but very playful.

And now for my poem for Angel Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter E.

Elmo is a red muppet
that is kind of like a puppet
He is bright red
and probably jumps on the bed
I think he is too kooky
I prefer the monster with the cookie


One more thing, here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

KaTwo: Dear Santa, Sorry about your cookies last year. I thought I was doing you a favor so you wouldn’t get fatter. Love, KaTwo


Brody: Dear Santa, Where were you all the years I lived outside? Just cuz a cat doesn’t have a chimney doesn’t mean they don’t have needs. Please give them all home. Brody

Selfies with Billy the Time Cat’s Scarf

Hi everyone! We are joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop with some special selfies. We are participating in our friend Billy the Time Cat’s Traveling Scarf. Mom got 8 of us to try it, but first a couple things…..

My Grammie brought me us a bag of treats on Thursday and I got to see her Saturday too. I love her so very much.

Joanie and Sammy want to thank Pipo and Minko for their beautiful birthday cards.

And the question for P.S. Annie’s 19-Somethin is : If you could go back in time to your childhood, would you? Mom says no way, she wouldn’t want to mess up the timeline because she is very happy where she is now. ( She watches too much sci-fi).

And now for those selfies:

Black Cat Appreciation Day

Hi everyone! Today is Black Cat Appreciation Day and I sure do appreciate my black cats as well as all the other ones too.

Before I write about them I must thank my husband. Yesterday, my crappy computer Dell decided it was done working for me. I had it for only 13 months and only used it for about 8 months. I was typing and it shut off and wouldn’t go back on again. My husband was at the grocery store so I called him and asked him if he could pick up something at Walmart for me on his way home. When I told him it was a laptop he didn’t even sound surprised and came home with one. He never reads my blog because he doesn’t do anything on the computer, but I wanted to say how lucky I am.

I am still learning how to use the new computer so I am using photos that were already in my WordPress.

Chewy Tuesday

Hi everyone, we get to join a new hop today. The Chewy Hop will take place the third Tuesday of every month. Thanks to Golden Woofs and Oz the Terrier for hosting.

This month we received ZiwiPeak Daily- Cat Cuisine Canned Cat Food in Venison . We were given the product for free in exchange for an honest review.

002Joanie called dibs the minute the box arrived. Unfortunately, canned food doesn’t agree with her so she didn’t get any.

009Snowball liked it a lot, she loves pate instead of shreds.

003Sammy liked it a

002Jinx did too.

001And it was a hit with Prancie, she loves venison.

Millie loved it, but he ate it too fast and well, you can guess what happened–in my shoe.

KaTwo won’t touch canned food, Joanie can’t have it and Millie had a problem, but that still gives us 10 cats loving it out of 13.

The ingredients sound healthy:

Venison Meat (includes up to 3% finely ground bone), Venison Liver, Venison Tripe, Venison Lung, Venison Kidney, New Zealand Green-Lipped Mussel, Olive Oil, Agar-Agar, Kelp, Taurine Vitamins: Thiamine Mononitrate, Niacin Supplement, Vitamin E Supplement, Calcium Pantothenate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin Supplement, Biotin, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Vitamin D2 Supplement, Folic Acid Minerals: Tricalcium Phosphate, Potassium Chloride, Choline Chloride, Magnesium Proteinate, Iron Proteinate, Zinc Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Magnesium Proteinate, Sodium Selenite, Calcium Iodate

It is on sale this month at Chewy and all orders over $49 ship free.

Don’t forget to comment to enter Phoebe’s giveaway:

Selfie Sunday: Letters to Santa Edition Part 2

Hi everyone, this has been a very sad week. Most of you probably know, but just in case you missed them. Romeo the Cat went to The Bridge

ROMEO Foreverand Georgie of Cats of Wildcat Woods

Georgie, FOREVER

I got to see my Grammie on Friday and she is going to watch us on Monday too. I love her so very much. And my purrince send me a Christmas card with a poem in it, he is such a clever boy phoebewithcardand handsome too!

I was finally able to record Mom singing so you can understand why I need ear muffs. Warning- listen at your own risk, you may want to lower the volume.

Here are 5 more of our letters to Santa:






And the winner of our Christmas Giveaway is Kitty Cat Chronicles -Congratulations!!!

Happy Monday everyone! Today is fun and games day and nothing is more fun for my cats than eating 🙂 And just like people, they get bored with the same foods so they were more than happy to review Wellness trufood Tasty Pairings With Pumpkin, Beef & Salmon.

005006It is grain free and made with high quality ingredients.Pumpkin is good for digestion too.  I was shocked when I read that you should feed 4.5 containers daily for 6-8 pound of body weight. Even on sale, I couldn’t afford to feed this alone to my cats- I wouldn’t have enough time in a day to open them all either.

010Phoebe liked it

013Stinky wouldn’t even try it

012Sammy liked it

009Jinx wasn’t thrilled

011Snowball loved it.

KaTwo won’t touch wet food and Joanie always vomits when she has canned food so I tested on 12 cats. 10 out of 12 liked it so I guess you could say it was a hit. If you want to get some, it is on sale at Chewy for $39.99 . Chewy offers free shipping on all orders over $49 and they have excellent customer service.

We were not compensated for this review, but we were given the food in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Don’t forget to comment for a chance to win all these eyeballs. 037

Selfie Sunday: The Tocktober Edition-Part 2

Happy Selfie Sunday everyone! We have really made a dent in those treats Grammie brought us. She watched us on Friday so we had lots. I love my Grammie so very much.

As most of you know, October is breast cancer awareness month so we are having a pink giveaway. 010There is a catnip mat, socks and some pink toys. Just comment today through Wednesday ( you can comment every day for more chances). And please remember that breast cancer can strike kitties too- especially those that are not spayed or get spayed later in life. I am worried because I was not spayed until I was one.

Now for some tocks: 005Millie 009Jinx 012Spooky 004Sammy eyeballKaTwoKaTwo  ( pardon the eyeball, Mom thinks she is funny)


PS: My bikini has been located


Now, it is headed to Miss Mudpie- good thing she has fur because it is a little past bikini weather in the North East.

PSS: Mom is going to a cat show today and she is going to see some bloggers- she will write about it tomorrow.
