Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day

Hi everyone! Phoebe’ s post has been preempted today for Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day. Last year, when we first posted on this day, I had no idea that soon after 3 of my furbabies would be at The Rainbow Bridge for this year’s remembrance day.

Thank you to Ann of Zoolatry for these beautiful graphics and for always making a special one for each pet that leaves us. And thank you to Deb Barnes of Zee and Zoey for creating this special day to remember our beloved pets ( not that we would ever forget).

Hug Your Cat Day!

Hi everyone! Today is Hug Your Cat Day, I think that should be every day, but I think most cats would disagree. I am glad I joined this last year because I rarely get in photos so I am glad to have one of Lucy and I:hugLucy

We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop today with my mostly completed button art:

DSCF1488  Should I add buttons to fill in the entire picture or just keep a plain background? And, can anyone tell what the blue thing is? I made that on a blank note card.

I also wanted to tell you about the button artist I gave you a link to last week. She recently participated in the Sing for Hope project to help bring art to children in need. 25 artists are chosen to each decorate a donated piano and she did hers all in buttons. These pianos will be all around NYC in June, to see her design click here.

Thank you to all who joined in the Friendly Fill-Ins yesterday. I am enjoying getting to learn more about everyone. Phoebe will be here tomorrow with a sign-up list for those traveling shades.



May the Fourth Be With You

Hi everyone! I am not a Star Wars fan, my hubby and I are Trekkies, but I couldn’t resist a chance to show off this photo of Lucy from last year. 001 Lucy as Princess Leia. I used pinwheel cookies and yes, I ate them after the photo shoot. Lucy retaliated with a pee on the bed that night,but I guess I deserved it.

I had a few stories left to read in that Chicken Soup book so I figured I would give them a chance and it just made me more mad. I went to that author’s website and she has the story on there so here is the link. She wrote about how good her cat was to tolerate her son using him as a basketball-can you believe it ? OK, I am done my rants for now.

Please purr and prayer for Ann of Zoolatry’s Zoey who is battling eye infections:

Purrs and Prayers for ZOEY, Zoolatry BADGE


A Hop and a Challenge

I have been nominated by Annie of McGuffy’s Reader, to participate in the “Three Day Quote Challenge”. The rules of the challenge are simple. They are as follows:

1. Post for three consecutive days.
2. Choose and share one or three quotes each day.
3. Challenge three additional bloggers each day.

Today is Day 1 of my challenge and because I  completed a quote challenge 

in September where I used all cat quotes, I thought I would do some other favorite quotes. I love quotes and have a Pinterest page for my favorites.
My quote for today is from Eldridge Cleaver ,   “If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem” .  I just said this to my Mom yesterday when she was telling me I need to learn to mind my own business about cats that are not mine. I currently have a feral waiting to get spayed next week ( long story).

On Day 1, I now nominate the following bloggers:
For Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop, I am cheating a little. I didn’t make this art, but I am eagerly anticipating the both of these graphics on canvas from Vision Bedding and once they arrive, I will be having a giveaway so one lucky winner can get something custom-made of your choice. Thank you again, Ann of Zoolatry
for these: Stinky FOREVER
Over the Rainbow Bridge, Lucy
I have some other graphics that some of you made for me that I hope to have put on canvas someday too.

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!!!

Hopping Saturday

Happy Saturday everyone! Today we start with a parade, even better than Macy’s parade.

Celebrate winter time with the pet parade, where all your favorite pets and animals can be found

I am hoping to put up our tree today so for Athena’s Caturday Art Hop, I went to photofunia and put Lucy on some Christmas balls. I wish I could actually buy some like this.

And for The Lazy Pit Bull’s #52 Snapshots of Life, the theme this week is “thankful”. I am thankful that I had so many years with Lucy and with KaChoo (below). Yesterday was 5 years since my KaChoo went to the Bridge. I am thankful for every kitty I am lucky enough to have share my life.

Phoebe will see you tomorrow.

Basil the Bionic Cat

Happy Friday everyone! Today I have a long overdue book review. I won a copy of Basil The Bionic Cat by Cathrine Garnell back in September, but as you know, I haven’t been reading as much without my Lucy.

Lucy used to pose on my robe with the book, but now like Tiny Tim’s chair, it sits alone.


The book is for children aged 8-12, but I really enjoyed it so I think it should be for ages 8-adult. Basil is a cat that lives in a manor with Mr. And Mrs. Pilkington , their twin daughters and an Aunt. Mr. Pilkington is a bit of a mad scientist ( I envision Doc in Back to the Future) and Basil ends up stepping in the wrong thing leaking from the lab.

This book is full of suspense and mystery as the twins get kidnapped. Fortunately, Basil has developed some new powers from the substance he stepped in. As you know, I don’t like to give long reviews for fear of giving out too much information. I can assure you that this book won’t disappoint. I think it would be a great gift this holiday season for kids and cat loving adults.

Basil has his own blog: http://bionicbasil.blogspot.com/  

You can purchase the book in the U.S. at Amazon The Kindle version is only $2.99 ( free for Kindle Unlimited)

and at Amazon UK

See you for hopping tomorrow.

Pet Parade with Rascal and Rocco

I am using the same photo for Athena’s Caturday and The Lazy Pit Bull’s #52 Snapshots , theme “Veteran”. I took this photo of Lucy last year with my Dad’s flag. I never thought Lucy would be with him this year. I used ribbet to add a flag frame/design.

Happy Veteran’s Day!

Happy Veteran’s Day everyone! I have great respect for those that serve our country. It amazes me that individuals will give their life to protect people they don’t know. So if you are a veteran or currently serving- Thank you.

Many restaurants and businesses are offering free meals, haircuts, etc. today to the military. Here is the link to the most comprehensive list I could find:


IHOP has free red, white and blue pancakes. Olive Garden, Applebees, Country Buffet and many others have free meal offers as well. LucyveteransThis is the photo I posted last year of Lucy with an Air Force photo of my Dad and the flag from his coffin. I hope they are together in Heaven.
