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!

 

Selfie Sunday: Tocktober Edition Part 3

Hi everyone. Before I get started, I want to give my condolences to Brian and his family for the loss of their beautiful Sascha.

Grammie asked me to thank you all for the wonderful birthday wishes. I love Grammie very much too like Phoebe did, but Grammie thinks I am a bully.

When she was here on Tuesday, she sat on Dad’s chair so I sat on his side table to visit with her. She got up and moved and told my folks that I bullied her out of his chair. Sure, I took the chair once she got up, but I wasn’t trying to make her move.

I want to thank The Feline Opines for including me in their Blogger Showcase this week. I am sad though because November 4th is the last one as they are ending it.

And the winner of my ghostly giveaway is one of our readers named Donna-congratulations!

And now for the last 4 tocks. Kuddos to Four-Legged Furballs’ Mom for knowing the tock on Friday was Tallulah.

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter J.

JERK
My brother Sammy has a quirk
he is a bit of a jerk
One night he sleeps on mom’s head
the next, he poops on the bed
He thinks he is a cool dude
and steals everyone’s food
You may think he is a perfect Cat Scout
but at home he is bad without a doubt.

  Now Brody move! You are on my new favorite spot.

PS: Here are the fill-ins for Friday. Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. If someone were visiting my area, I would recommend a visit to _________________________.

2. My favorite room in my home is _________________________.

We Missed a Gift

Hi everyone! I am attempting to put away all our Christmas decorations. I can’t bring myself to take the tree down yet though. I did find another gift for the kitties that they somehow missed.

Noel got to open it

  It is a water activated fish

Sammy checked it out, but had no interest after a few seconds.

And look who is hogging it. Little Penny the toy hoarder.

It moves around like a real fish, but no one tried to scoop it out. Does anyone else have one of these ? If so, does your cat play with it?

 

Selfie Sundays : Letters to Santa Part 3

Hi everyone!100_5006

I have been busy helping Mom decorate the tree. Sammy helped too, every time he didn’t like where Mom hung an ornament, he knocked it down. He thinks he is an expert because he went to the North Pole with Cat Scouts last year and he is going again today.

100_5000
I got to see Grammie on Friday, I love her so very much. And I will see her a lot this week.

Thank you to all who have sent me photos for Festivus ( all 2 of you 🙂 ) There is still time to send in your wrestling and/or pole photos. And be sure to bring your grievances Friday. Anyone who writes grievances and/or sends photos will be entered to win Season 9 (includes Festivus episode) of Seinfeld and some catnip goods.

Now it is time for the last of our letters to Santa:

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading and #JHC 10

Hi everyone! Today is a busy hopping day. First is Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

100_9662-2

As you know, I am not a fan of fiction, but the librarian set this aside for me because she thought I would like it. And she was correct, Lawyer For a Cat by Lee Robinson is really good. It is about a young attorney who ends up having to care for a cat named Beatrice until she can find the most suitable person to care for her. The owner passed away and listed 3 choices in her will of who could care for the cat and live in the house, the owner’s son was not listed, but he wants the house now.

This book also reminds me of the fact that my husband and I do not have a will yet. We started discussing it years ago and now the attorney we went to is retired. I know if something happened to both of us that my Mom ( Grammie) would take care of my cats, but if she could not then we need a plan. My niece said she would find them all homes, but that is not what I want, I want them to live out their lives in their own home which is why we have procrastinated so long.

I also tried to read Seinfeldia by Jennifer Keishin Armstrong, but I didn’t like it. I loved the show and have seen every episode countless times, but this book reads like a boring Biography. I just couldn’t get into it- has anyone else read it?

The word today for #JHC is BOO! dscf2671 Snowball has a blanket behind her that has ghosts and the word Boo on it. Snowball hopes she is Awww…worthy for Comedy Plus’ Awww…..Mondays blog hop.

 

#JHC Day 5 and Poetry

Hi everyone! 100_9624 Mary M was the only one who noticed I had a bandage on in this photo yesterday. That other carrier was for me-phooey! I had to have blood stolen to test my thyroid again ( we get results later today). At least it was a pretty pink with glitters.

My Dad got me a big container of treats, he is so sweet. He even said I didn’t have to share, but mean Mom said I do have to share. I saw Grammie on Wednesday, I love her so very much. And I will see her again today too.

Today is Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter Q. I have written a haiku about the talented kitty artist Quint.

Keep your Picasso
your Renoir and Van Gogh too!
We prefer a “Quint”

Last year, someone surprised us with a Quint painting and we finally have the perfect frame for it. Noel is posing with it.

Today’s word for the #JHC is candy and Mom’s favorite snack this time of year is orange kit kats. Here is Prancie, our orange kit kat posing with one.dscf2618

They are actually white chocolate and only available at Target.

#JHC Halloween Challenge

Hi everyone! Today we are joining a new challenge for October- JNW’s Halloween Challenge. I love Halloween, I started decorating yesterday, it usually takes several days.

pumpkin-161650_1280

Today’s word is pumpkin.

NOEL This photo is a few years old, but I think Noel looks great with this pumpkin.

imageedit_4_5027970425 For Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop, I used Lunapic to edit a recent photo of Noel. I cropped it to an oval shape and used the cartoon effect. I think it makes the checkered chair look like city lights in buildings behind Noel.

Phoebe will be starting a giveaway tomorrow.
