Penny’s Tips- Volume 5

Hi everyone! I finally get to give another one of my tips. My tip this week is to use a penny to solve a dispute. For example, I want this box and so does Millie. I will flip you for it Millie.

Heads I win, tails you lose.

Works every time. I always win.

Happy Hanukkah to our Jewish friends!

Don’t forget to comment on Sunday’s post for a chance to win Prancie’s Grumpy Cat giveaway!

Letters to Santa-Part 1

Hi everyone! We are joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop. Here is part one (of three) of our letters to Santa.

Joanie wrote:

“Dear Santa, I wants real Gremlin. I promise not to get him wet or feed him after midnite. Love, Joanie”

 

Millie wrote: ” Dear Santa, I want a catnip carrot of my own. Love, Millie ”

Emmy wrote: ” Santa, With all the stuff going on in the news do you think it is wise to have kids sit on your lap in exchange for a gift? I will stick to gifts from Grammie and my folks.Emmy”

 Brody wrote: ” Dear Santa, I want Sammy to love me or at least stop beating me. Love, Brody”

Have you written your letter to Santa yet?

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. We are very thankful that Prancie is almost back to her normal self, she is still a little weak, but much better. And we are very thankful for all the purrs and prayers. In addition to the vestibular issue and ear infection, she also has hyperthyroidism so is now taking meds for that. She still needs a blood pressure check when we go for a recheck in 3-4 weeks.Her other blood work was good and her urine was too so that is all good news.

Prancie did write her poem today, but she is going to let Joanie deal with this post.

I iz Prancie’s nurse. When mom or dad can’t watch Prancie she is in this cage and I takes care of her. She sleeps in this too between my folks. They are afraid she will get hurt if she tries to jump down from somewhere.

Millie played a Halloween trick on mom, he hid a pumpkin. She heard a thump when they were watching tv and figured he knocked it down, but she couldn’t find it until the next morning. He had rolled it across the kitchen and under a chair that was in the corner.

We are joining Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter U. Here is Prancie’s poem.

Unique
Just like people, us kitties are all unique
some of us are quiet and some like to speak.
Some of us eat too much, not me though
most of us enjoy looking out the window.
One thing about us that is the same
we love our human that gave us a name.

We are late with our Spark this week too. On Google, I found a photo of a caterpillar and a butterfly with the following quote: “Don’t Lose Hope.(You never know what tomorrow will bring).” Here are my photos that my hubby took this summer of a monarch emerging from a chrysalis.

And here are the fill-ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.


1. My favorite part of November is ________________.

2. Every November, I ________________________.

3. For me, peace                                         .

4. So far, my upcoming holiday plans                                        .

Happy Halloween!

Hi everyone. Before we show our Halloween costumes, I have a Prancie update. She is improving and can walk pretty well, just a little unsteady. The vet did not think she had a stroke. She thinks it is vestibular and possibly from an ear infection. She had an antibiotic shot and has ear drops. Thank you all for the purrs and prayers.

First off, black cats don’t need costumes, they are perfect just as they are. And Polar Bear is impossible to dress so he decided to pose with a ghost.

The other eight went with an ocean theme.

Sammy as Popeye with Olive Oil and Sweet Pea ( actually, it is a sugar snap pea).

 

Emmy is a penguin

Penny is a crab ( she is mad that she couldn’t do her tips today).

Millie is a pirate

Brody is an octopus

Joanie is the Gorton’s Fisherwoman

Prancie is a mermaid

( photo taken before she got sick)

KaTwo is a shark

Which one do you like best? Have a great day!

 

#ChewyInfluencer

Hi everyone! We are reviewing a great product made for Chewy today.* We have a post about a post.

*Disclaimer: As Chewy Influencers, we received the Frisco 33.5 inch Scratching Tower free in exchange for a fair review.All opinions are our own.

It came in 4 pieces with lots of bolts and the funny little L shaped wrench. It was easy to assemble and I did it all by myself ( I got sick of waiting for the hubby to do it). It weighs a lot and is very sturdy.

I 

Prancie and Sammy helped me, so I guess I can’t take all the credit for assembling it.

Millie decided it would make a great pedestal.

Joanie turned on her lasers and started scratching.

Almost all the cats have been using it, but my camera is slow to turn on and by the time I get it on, they have done their scratching. It is definitely a hit and I love that it is so sturdy and well-made.

If you are interested in the Frisco 33.5 inch Scratching Pole.Tower , it is on sale this month for $33.99. It comes in brown or cream.  And don’t forget that Chewy has free 1-2 day shipping on all orders over $49.

We are joining the Chewy Blog Hop hosted by Sugar Golden Woofs and Oz The Terrier.

Penny will return next Tuesday with Penny’s Tips.

Selfie Sunday: Tocktober Edition Part 2

Hi everyone! This being the Queen stuff is exhausting.

  Phoebe told me that you like stories of dumb things mom does. Well, the other day, she sprayed her perfume on the bed to make it smell pretty. Then when Dad came in for bed, he said the bed smelled like mothballs and took the top blanket off the bed. Mom made him sniff her perfume bottle and asked if that was the smell and he said it was. I guess Dad doesn’t like her perfume. Too bad, it is the only one that doesn’t give her a headache.

She also made a grilled cheese and forgot to put the cheese inside. Well, enough about us, here are 4 more tocks. I will show you the last 4 next week. And on Thursday, I will have my very first giveaway for Halloween.

1. Keep calm and ____________________.
2. _______________ disappoints me.
3.                           is my                            .

4. In retrospect,                                   .

My answers:

  1. Keep calm and hug your cat *

2. Nic Cage’s choice of movies to act in disappoints me. I was so excited to have a new DVD from the library last Saturday called Arsenal, but we only watched 10 minutes of it because it was so violent ( and I like mob movies so I am not squeamish).

3.Rescuing cats is my calling in life.

4.In retrospect, I should have majored in something other than Elementary Education in college like English /Writing.

I am also joining Feline Friday being hosted by Comedy Plus.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 74

Hi everyone! Prancie thanks everyone for the warm welcome you all gave her yesterday on her first official blog post.

Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins. Don’t forget to add your link at McGuffy’s Reader, you can also answer in the comment section. Thanks to all who participate.

1. October is the perfect time to ____________________________.
2. Halloween _________________________.
3. Every October, I                               .

4. My experience with the supernatural world is                                   .

My answers:

  1. October is the perfect time to have a wedding, I love Fall weddings. On October 24th, my husband and I will celebrate 25 years of wedded bliss.
  2. Halloween is tied with Christmas as my favorite holiday. Actually, I prefer the reason for Christmas, but I have a sickness for Halloween decorations.
  3. Every October, I torture my niece by putting a plastic spider in the shower. I did that for years when she lived with us and I still manage to sneak one in her shower since she has been married.
  4. My experience with the supernatural world is non-existent. I have read books on connecting with spirits, but I do not have that gift. I do believe some have it, including my friend’s daughter who has communicated with my Dad for me.

We are also joining Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.

Millie* is our official pumpkin inspector. These are my book pumpkins, still needing stems and bows.

*Millie wants to thank everyone for saying he is pretty the other day. He also wants you to know that he is a boy with a girl’s name. We named him Millie because he was born in the mill yard in town.
