Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I know it is Phoebe’s Day, but I need to list my 3 thankfuls first. I am thankful that my niece introduced my Mom and I to pedicures in 2013 and now we got every 6 weeks, I am thankful Sammy didn’t pee on the couch today, and I am thankful that Phoebe is so good at posing for photos.

And now, here’s Phoebe!

Hi everyone! You are not seeing double. Joanie is a brat so Mom went and bought another scratcher. Actually, she bought 4 more because Petco had them on clearance for $3.

I got to see my Grammie on Tuesday and Wednesday. I love her so very much, even if she doesn’t always give me treats.We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

And now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. This week we could choose from four B words, including bananas.

Bananas
Bananas are a dangerous fruit.
if you slip on the peel , it won’t be a
hoot.


My Dad likes them for a snack,
but sometimes they turn black
so Mom makes a bread with chocolate chips
Forget that I want my bananas filled with catnips.

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. Thank you to all who participate.

1. A recurring dream I have is _______________________.

2. Turn ______________ into ________________________.

3.                              is driving me crazy!

4. Lately, I have been                        .

Happy Father’s Day!

Hi everyone! Happy Father’s Day out there to all Cat Daddies. I am a lucky kitty to have one. Here is a photo from April ( Snowball is in it too- sniff).

  Dad always shares his supper with us.

Mom is interrupting my post to list her 3 things she is thankful for today.

Thanks Phoebe, sorry to interrupt. I am thankful that I had a wonderful father.Even though he passed away in 2001, I think of him every day.

I am also thankful that my hubby is such a good cat daddy and loves them as much as I do.

I am also thankful he is an excellent gardener.He has picked over 700 spears of asparagus and lots of strawberries, I even got to freeze some.

I am happy to report I accomplished more of the challenges too- I prayed, took a nap, did a random act of kindness and I even smiled at 3 people at the mall.

Now back to Phoebe-

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Check out my new scratcher that Grammie bought me on Wednesday. I love her so very much. I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop because I am very thankful for my Grammie.

Mom bought me some Greenies, she got Emmy a bag too.

  I wanted party mix though, I am sick of Greenies-phooey!

And now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. We had a choice of 4 words that begin with A so I went with apples.

Apples
Some eat apples on a stick,
I wouldn’t even want a lick.
I prefer some meat,
that will get me to eat.
Dad bbq’s me some deer
that someone hunted last year.
So you can keep those apples
and even your snapples.

And now Mom wants to join the The Thursday Movie Picks Blog Hop hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves this week because she likes the theme, movies based on true events. She has chosen 3 films based on events that occurred in Massachusetts.

  1. The Fighter (2010)-A film about the boxer, “Irish” Mickey Ward. Mark Wallberg starred and Grammie and Mom were extras in the audience of one of the fight scenes. Cool huh?
  2. The Perfect Storm ( 2000)- Mark Wahlberg was also in this, but Mom isn’t hot for him like she is Nicolas Cage. It is a well done film about a storm in 1991 that caused the death of many fisherman.
  3. Black Mass (2015)- Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger, the mobster from South Boston. Mom’s friend’s grandson almost got the role of Whitey’s son, but he was a little too old. Mom helped him practice his lines for his audition.

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 challenge everyone to ________________________ this week.

2. I regret disposing of _____________________________.

3. I have a difficult time admitting                                .

4. If I were given a psychic power, I would like it to be                              .
  I gotta go, Joanie is trying to take over my new scratcher.

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! You caught me sharpening my nails 

I saw Grammie Thursday and Saturday. I love her so very much! I even waited for her right by the door. Sadly, I have a lot of free time now. I used to spend a lot of time giving Snowball a bath.

I miss her so much.

Mom was so worried about Snowball that our 3rd Blogoversary came and went on May 23rd. It doesn’t seem like it has been so long since we got started. We are thankful for all the friends we have made these last 3 years. And I am thankful that my purrince found me too.

We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop and The Pet Blogger Showcase. Here are some selfies:

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! I am so mad at my Mom. She made me go to the vets on Thursday and they stole my blood again!!!! My blood pressure was good and my kidneys have not gotten worse so I guess that is good.

She is always telling Joanie, “One of these days, pow to the moon.”. Joanie is the naughtiest and she might get to go on a trip to the moon, that is not fair. I want a trip to the moon. Phooey!

Grammie was here Saturday. I love her so very much even if she didn’t give me any treats.

#Chewy Influencer

Hi everyone! This month my cats tried Merrick Backcountry Grain-Free Real Chicken Recipe Freeze-Dried Raw Cat Treats from Chewy. *

* Disclosure: We are part of the Chewy Blogger Program. We received the treats for free in exchange for reviewing them and spreading the word about Chewy. All opinions are our own.

 

These treats were a hit or miss with nothing in between. Joanie and Brody gobbled them right up.

Sammy loved them too as well as Prancie

KaTwo, Phoebe, Snowball and Penny did not like them . Nine out of thirteen is still pretty darn good though. They do break up easily to make them easier to chew. I just fed them as treats, but they can be added to the top of canned foods too.

The ingredients list is short which is always good:

Chicken, Chicken Liver, Dried Peas, Dried Potatoes, Gelatin, Salt, Mixed Tocopherols (Preservative).

Chewy has them on sale for $2.72/ 1 oz. bag. And don’t forgetMerrick Backcountry Grain-Free Real Chicken Recipe Freeze-Dried Raw Cat Treats has free 1-2 day shipping on all orders over $49 so stock up on everything while you are there.

2. My prom was my junior year in high school, 1986. I went with a friend, he wore a Miami Vice tux. I wanted to post a photo, but every time I try to scan one it messes up my computer for when I try to upload photos from my camera.
3. The BEST thing about LIFE is CATS.

Joanie feels she hasn’t had enough blog time so here she is on my lap.

The Big Fork and Spoon

What are these for Phoebe?

Mom and Dad are having a giant over for dinner, maybe he will eat you Joanie.

I am going to go hide.

She is so gullible. These were in the kitchen of Mom’s childhood home and she kept them when the house was sold in 2003. She is thinking about painting them and putting them in our kitchen- I say she should just put them away and leave the 1970’s in the past with the avocado colored appliances.

I got my cup all set for Cinco de Mayo. It says ” Tips appreciated. We do not accept coins.”

Grammie came to see me today and gave me my $5 for Cinco de Mayo. It was morning though and I don’t dance in the morning, but she still paid me. I love her so very much and I would even if she didn’t give me treats and cash.

Don’t forget to comment on yesterday’s post for a chance to win the A-Z crocheted items which will be split among 2 winners which I will announce on Thursday.

I am off to work on my U poem- any ideas for that?

Shopping Around the World

Hi everyone! Today we are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop and  Bacon’s Shopping Around the World which is being hosted by our friends Kali and Shoko.

This month they asked for a seafood dish. Mom doesn’t eat seafood except for solid white albacore tuna and even that she has a love/hate relationship with.

Big mistake sending Joanie and Sammy to the store for the ingredients.

Tuna Macaroni Salad

Ingredients:

Box of small shell pasta $1.00

mayonnaise $2.99 for Hellman’s 30 oz.

5 oz. can of solid white albacore tuna in water -drained and flaked  store brand free this week with purchase of Hellman’s.

1 cucumber-peeled and chopped $1

salt and pepper

Directions:

Cook pasta according to directions on box, drain then add cucumber, tuna, salt and pepper and mayonnaise, stir together and chill in refrigerator.

Sorry, that is the best we could do for seafood. Mom usually shares the tuna with us too so there is less in the salad.

I got to see Grammie on Saturday. I love her so very much. I am going to see her on Monday too.

The A-Z Blogging Challenge ends tomorrow- any guesses on what Mom made for Z? She is very proud of it, there was no pattern so she made it up as she went along. Sometime this week we will be having a giveaway for 2 lucky winners to split all the A-Z loot.
