Penny’s Tips

Hi everyone! Penny here and I am starting a new feature called Penny’s Tips.

I will give you a tip of something you can do with a penny. Now please don’t go telling me in the comment section any tips because I already have 11 tips ready and I don’t want to have to go all tortie on you with tortitude.

My first tip is to add some to cut flowers because the copper will act as at as an acidifier preventing the growth of bacteria.

Pennies made before 1982 are made of 95 % copper and those made 1983 and later are mainly zinc with just a light coat of copper.

Please note these dahlias are poisonous to cats so I just posed for this photo and mom put them back in the dining room ( no cats zone) . For the ASPCA  list of more poisonous plants , click here.

 

Sunday Selfies Tocktober Edition Part 1

Hi everyone! Thanks for welcoming me on Thursday. This writing stuff is pretty tiring.

I am studying up this Wicked book for some tips. I need to get tough, Emmy and Sammy seem to want to stage a coup.

I was told it was Tocktober. I always wondered why mom was so obsessed with taking photos of our bottoms during Grammie’s birthday month.so here are four of our tocks for this week: Mine

Penny

Emmy and Brody

We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop and The Pet Blogger Showcase, our friends’ Ellie, Momma and BearCat featured Phoebe again. Thank you.

PS: Penny is starting a new monthly  feature on Tuesday.

And tomorrow our friend Annie at McGuffy’s Reader is starting a new hop to help everyone start their week on a positive note. To join, post a quote or photo of something that will “spark” the positive.

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! Check out all this hay! I forgot how much I love hay. I used to steal it from the rabbits when we had them.

Mom locked Dad out of the house at 11 PM the other night. No, they weren’t fighting, mom just isn’t too bright. Dad had gone out to get a breath of air and bring the flag inside, but mom thought he was in the bathroom. She went in the kitchen and noticed the porch light on and the door unlocked and thought he had forgotten them so she shut the light off and locked up. Then the doorbell rang and she got scared wondering who would be at the door at that hour-MOL!

She was supposed to be decluttering today, but she ended up at a tag sale. She was all proud that she got a telescope for Dad for $3 until she got it home and he pointed out that it was missing an eyepiece. I really think I should write a book about all the stupid things she does.

I got to see Grammie on Thursday, I love her so very much. She got to see me walking on my harness.

Millie and Penny want to do selfies today so here they are:

Hi everyone! Time for our second Chewy Review and our Fall Fashion Show Part 2.

*Disclaimer- we were given Wellness CORE Simply Shreds Grain-Free Boneless Chicken Wet Cat Food Topper, 1.75-oz, case of 12 in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are our own.

Wellness CORE Simply Shreds Grain-Free Boneless Chicken Wet Cat Food Topper are made with only 3 ingredients: Chicken, chicken broth and water.

They actually look and smell good enough to eat, but I restrained myself 🙂

Millie loved them and so did Penny

Jinx, Tallulah, Polar Bear and Noel all enjoyed this food too. I didn’t try it on Sammy because of his special diet and a few others for various reasons, but all who tried it cleaned their bowls. My only complaint was it is impossible to open the package with water/juice spurting out .It is on sale for $13.99/case of 12. Click here to go to Chewy.

And don’t forget that orders over $49 are shipped free and arrive in 1-2 days.

Now for the rest of our Fall Fashion Show. Today we are featuring accessories.

Sammy is mad for plaid with this bow tie.

Cowboy hats never go out of style. Joanie and Brody are proudly wearing theirs.

Thank you for joining us!

#ChewyInfluencer

Hi everyone! Today is Chewy Review day, but we are also having a Fall Fashion Show for your enjoyment.

*Disclaimer- We were given VetriScience Vetri-Lysine Plus Immune Health Bite-Sized Cat Chews in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are our own.

These treats are recommended for cats that need added immune support or respiratory health support so I wanted Polar Bear to try them being that he has Feline Herpes. He has the sneezes year round.

He loves them and now gets 2 a day

( recommended dosage). I can’t say if they help or not because he has been taking them for less than a week. He definitely likes the taste and I think the others would too being that it is tough to keep them away when he is eating his.

  I will keep you posted though.

If you want to try them or read their nutritional content , click here

You can get a bag of 120 on sale for $12.26, while there you should stock up on all your pet needs because all orders over $49 include free 1-2 day shipping .Most of the time, my orders arrive in less than 24 hours and that is without a drone 🙂

Now for our Fall Fashion Show:

  Phoebe is looking foxy with a fox sweater.

For colder days, Penny recommends this red coat which folds up to fit inside a little pouch.

Tomorrow we have another review and part 2 of our fashion show. Thanks for coming!

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 67

Hi everyone! Time for The Friendly Fill-Ins. Be sure to leave your link at McGuffy’s Reader. You can also answer in the comment section. Thank you to all who participate.


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

2. My favorite room in my home is _________________________.
3. Back-to-school time makes me think of                               .

4. My favourite year of school was                         , because                                 .

My Answers:

1.If someone were visit my area, I would recommend a visit to The Quabbin Reservoir. It is located in the next town, but only 5 miles from where I live. 4 towns were taken over to build it to supply water to Boston, MA.It is a beautiful place to walk and bike ride. It boggles my mind that they could destroy 4 small towns, moving cemeteries and forcing people to leave. To earn more about it click here.

2. My favorite room in my home is the bedroom, I love to read in there with kitties next to me.

3. Back-to-school time makes me think of taking a photo of my niece on her first day of school from preschool all the way through college.

4. My favourite year of school was none of them, because I have always been socially anxious so even though I forced myself to join things, I never felt comfortable or that I belonged in any social group.

 

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

Penny has her high beams on.

Penny is a little upset that she hasn’t had any photos on the blog lately so today we will have Tortie Tuesday.

 

She sends kisses to her sweet boyfriend, Toby of Toby’s Wrecking Crew.

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! Today we are joining Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading blog hop and Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays. But first, I will list my three things I am thankful for today.

I am thankful for central air and that it is actually working. I am thankful that my niece is so sweet and brought a Father’s Day gift over for my hubby ( Uncle David) and I am thankful that Pipo and Minko’s Mom copied and pasted my post from last Monday for me. The one that GoDaddy stole and never gave back. Now I don’t have to waste brain cells trying to rewrite it.

I am sure many of you have heard of Norton the cat and read the 3 books his owner, Peter Gethers wrote about him back in the 1990’s. I wrote about them during the 2016 A-Z challenge, you can click here if you missed it.

Peter Gether’s latest book is a memoir/cookbook about his wonderful Mom titled, My Mother’s Kitchen. She had been a stay at home Mom to her two sons and a dutiful wife to her husband then at the age of 53 she started a career as a chef. She trained with Wolfgang Puck and became quite famous herself, even authoring several cookbooks.

I enjoyed learning more about the entire family. His mother was truly amazing, surviving 3 kinds of cancers and a stroke. She proved that attitude really does matter in recovering from illnesses. She also loved cats and would cat sit for her son’s cats. Norton used to travel with him, but after he passed, the other cats did not.

The author wanted to honor his Mom by cooking some of her favorite meals. This gives him quite an education in cooking too and a chance to bond with many friends. I learned several cooking tips and I plan to try some recipes too. If you are interested in reading it, here is the Amazon link.

I chose Prancie to pose with the book because Norton was a Scottish fold and Prancie reminds me of one because of her ears ( hers was frostbitten though)

And today is also International  Box Day

Penny is our box lover in the family. Sometimes she gets so excited, she pees in them. She hasn’t in a long time though so maybe she outgrew it.

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.

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! I was planning to write about the Kindle book I was reading, but I didn’t get to finish it yet. I have others to write about though. We are joining Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? and Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays.

I loved The Penny Poet of Portsmouth by Katherine Towler. Please don’t tell Penny that the poems are not about her 🙂 The author tells of her friendship with a man in Portsmouth who was very different from her, but they had poetry in common. It really made me think how true it is that we can’t make assumptions about people. It is a beautiful story of friendship that anyone would enjoy.

I am almost done with Kate Mulgrew’s memoir, Born with Teeth. Many of you know her as Captain Janeway on Star Trek: Voyager. I have enjoyed this book and her writing style.

Next week, I will write about a cat book.
