Penny’s Tips Volume 17

Hi everyone. Before we get started, we ask that you please purr and pray for our friend Minchie, he is not feeling well. You can visit by clicking here.

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Tuesday Fun Blog Hop. This week, I have a tip about hydrangea, actually it is not an actual penny tip. It is an old wives’ tale that planting pennies around hydrangeas will make them turn blue. That is not true.

  (Don’t worry, Mom took the photo and then Dad planted this outside).

If you want blue hydrangea, you need to lower your soil’s ph. To do this, you water with 1 Tablespoon of aluminum sulfate in 1 gallon of water, you do this once a month for 3 consecutive months.

I won’t get to do my tips for the next two weeks because Mom has Chewy reviews to do, I don’t know why she has to cut into my day, there are 6 other days.

Did you see where Moo visited last week? If not, click here.

 

Penny’s Tips Volume 16

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Tuesday Fun Blog Hop.

My tip today is to use pennies to make a puzzle. We put all these pennies on top of a frame then Mom took a photo and uploaded it to jigsaw planet.

It took Mom 35 minutes to complete the puzzle, I guarantee you that you will beat her time. She is the slowest puzzle doer ever.

Purrfection: How to Achieve Balance and Happiness Through Your Cat

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Tuesday Fun. We are also a day late, but still joining Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

*Disclosure: I received a free copy of Purrfection How to Achieve Balance and Happiness Through Your Cat in exchange for a fair review.

  I let Penny pose with the book , but she is still mad that she didn’t get to do her Penny’s Tips this week.

Purrfection How to Achieve Balance and Happiness Through Your Cat by Sophie Macheteau is a fun book that covers everything from cats in history to making your own feline totebag. . There are also instructions to make a cat notebook and t-shirt as well as toys for your cat.

There is a cat lover quiz and lots of information. Did you know there is a Google Maps for Cats? Iknowwhereyourcatlives.com

There is also a link for a downloadable audio of a cat purring- you know how calming that is 🙂 The book is also filled with beautiful cat photos too.

This is a great book for all cat lovers. You can buy your own copy on Amazon.

 

#ChewyInfluencer

Hi everyone! We have a Chewy review today and we are joining the Chewy Blog Hop hosted by Sugar Golden Woofs.

*We received the PetSafe FroliCat Flik Interactive Teaser Pet Toy for free in exchange for a fair review.

Joanie had first dibs on playing with the PetSafe FroliCat Flik Interactive Teaser Pet Toy.

It has a string that spins around randomly, it shuts off automatically after 15 minutes or you can turn it off yourself.  Joanie went right for it.

Sammy did tooMillie and Penny had some fun

I think Jinx had the most fun, he even had the string in his mouth and pulled the toy, but I wasn’t quick enough to get a photo. The only cat not thrilled with it was Prancie, she gave it a quick sniff and went on to work on tearing some paper ( her hobby). I would say 11 out of 12 is a hit.

They are on sale for $19.99 this month. And don’t forget Chewy always offers free 1-2 day shipping on orders over $49. Click here

If you have a cat that likes to chew things, I would be sure to hide the toy when you are not there to supervise so kitty doesn’t eat the string.

Today is letter O day on The A-Z Challenge.

Emmy is posing with an Ornament for the Christmas Tree. I put a bunch of these on lower branches every year for the cats too.

Penny’s Tips Volume 14

Hi everyone! I have another tip for you,  this one is good for when you have a lot of pennies. It is also a great use for a sock that lost its mate.

You just fill the sock with pennies, tie the end and put it in the freezer. It makes a great ice pack for when you get injured.

Today is already I day on the A-Z Blogging Challenge.Mom made an icicle, she makes lots of these to put on the bottom branches of the Christmas tree. We love to steal them at night. I think she should spray them with catnip spray.

Emmy is checking it out.

 

 

 

 

 

Hopping Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays, McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks and Mewsic Moves Me ( hosted by Curious as a Cathy, Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.) Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? And it is day 8 of the  A-Z Blogging Challenge.

For the letter H, I made a hedgehog, but you need to use your imagination because it didn’t come out exactly as I had hoped it would.

My spark is a quote from William Arthur Ward. “Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. ” Remember to always express gratitude.

I have been reading the memoirs of Reynold Price. I started with A Whole New Life: An Illness and a Healing which was his third memoir. He was a fiction author that survived cancer of his spinal cord that left him a parapalegic. This memoir was about that ordeal, I enjoyed his writing so much that I got his other 3 memoirs out of the library. Ardent Spirits was about his time at Oxford University which was also interesting. Once I get through the other 2, I may look into his fiction. Has anyone ever read his books?

This week for Mewsic Moves Me has Easter songs for a theme.

  1. From The Passion of the Christ Film, Brad Paisley and Sara Evans-New Again.

 

2. Cat Stevens -Morning Has Broken (1976)-Not an Easter song, but I think it is appropriate.

3. Gene Autry- Here Comes Peter Cottontail

Sorry this was such a long post.

Penny’s Tips Volume 13

Hi everyone! I have an unusual tip, more of a question actually. Mom made these book vases and she thinks they look to plain. I suggested she decorate them with pennies, but she doesn’t want to.

Any better suggestions of how to perk them up?

Millie is modeling Mom’s A-Z Challenge , C creation- coal , she makes these for naughty kitties at Christmas.

Don’t forget to comment on yesterday’s post to enter the giveaway for this catnip mat and socks ( Joanie is not included). Giveaway closes at 10 PM ( EST) April 3rd.

 

 

Penny’s Tips Volume 12

Here is a tip for Easter. You can use pennies to fill plastic eggs for an egg hunt instead of candy. This will only work for young kids though, older kids will think you are cheap. I recommend filling them with catnip too 🙂

 

 

And remember not to use that fake grass stuff because it is dangerous to us kitties.
