Selfie Sunday with Phoebe

Hi everyone!  I know I look a little funny, but these earmuffs really do help block out the sound of Mom’s caterwauling singing Christmas music. 100_9919

Speaking of Christmas, I got my first card already and it is from my Purrince.

100_9921 Sorry, I blocked his photo, I was kissing him.

My shades made it to Cat Scout Charles and we thank his Mom for this photo. charles

They still have a lot more places to go so don’t worry if you signed up, they will get to you- someday.

I haven’t seen my Grammie since Wednesday. I love her so very much, I hope I see her soon.

Have any of you ever heard of Festivus? It was started on Seinfeld, my Mom loves to watch that show even though she has seen every episode a bazillion times. 100_9922

I am thinking of having a Festivus party. We would get to air our grievances about our folks and then have a feats of strength contest with a pole. Is anyone interested? It would be on December 23rd.

And the winner of our my Thanksgiving giveaway for a catnip mat, crocheted turkey leg and pilgrim hat is It’s All About the Cats!  Congratulations!

Sunday Selfies and #JHC Day 9

Hi everyone! dscf2668 You are not seeing double, I am posing with my 2 containers of treats. Dad got me one on Tuesday and then Grammie brought me one on Thursday. I love my Grammie so very much and my Dad too.

My purrince wrote me another poem:

“QUEEN”
“All tho’ mee callss Phoebe
mee Purrincess,
Shee reelly iss a Queen.
Reegal an kind,
She iss a true find….
An shee iss all mine…..
Purrincess Phoebe mee Queen!!!!”
bye Purrince Siddhartha Henry
All mee LUV an ***paw kissesss*** xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I am still very worried about him and don’t want him to have to live on a farm. He is such a sweet boy.

I am worried about my Mom too, she is acting even stranger than her usual. I caught her cutting up a book. She loves books, why would she cut one up? She claims she is making something, I agree, she is making a mess.

100_9650 Joanie and Brody were sharing Mom’s lap the other night. Prancie is off to the side.

I helped Mom crochet a scarf with a cute cat button on it.dscf2663 You can see it and bid if you want on Winnie’s Wish auction page. There are lots of great items it is never too early to start your Christmas or Hannukah shopping.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 22

Hi everyone! Before we get to the Fill-Ins, I want to give you an update on Phoebe’s blood work. Her thyroid is now fine with 1/2 pill twice a day. She does have the start of kidney disease though. Unfortunately, I wasn’t home when the vet called so that is all I know for now. When I talk to the vet we will discuss the diet.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 22. Be sure to add your link on McGuffy’s Reader.
Fill-ins:
1. My favorite store is _____________________.
2. An unanswered prayer I am thankful for is _______________________.

3. At Halloween, I                                       .

4. I                        the supernatural, because                                      .

My answers:

  1. My favorite store is MICHAEL’S CRAFT STORE.
  2. An unanswered prayer I am thankful for is THAT THE MAN I DATED BEFORE I MET MY HUBBY MOVED TO FLORIDA AND STAYED. I HAD PRAYED HE WOULD MOVE BACK HERE.
  3. At Halloween, I HAVE THE HO– USE ALL DECORATED EVEN THOUGH WE NEVER GET TRICK OR TREATERS.
  4. I BELIEVE IN the supernatural, because I HAVE READ MANY BOOKS BY PSYCHICS THAT DO SPEAK TO THE DEAD AND THEY SURE CONVINCED ME.

One prayer we do hope gets answered is for Phoebe’s Purrince. His latest vet recommended euthanasia despite his being healthy. He is always welcome to live with us as an option, but this vet doesn’t think re-homing would work. If you have any suggestions please visit them. And please pray.

We are also praying for everyone to be safe from Hurricane Matthew.

The word today for #JHC is Monster. stinky

My Stinky was not afraid of our Frankenstein Monster. I miss my Stinky.

#JHC Day 2 and Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone! I have a great giveaway starting today. Mom loves Halloween so much that we are doing two for Halloween. This one is black cat themed in celebration of the new book Layla of Cat Wisdom developed and edited to promote black cat adoptions called Black Cats Tell All.

100_9615

The giveaway is for this beautiful catnip mat with black cats on it, a small purse with black cats( brown ones and grey ones too) on it, a black cat silicone trivet and a crocheted pumpkin. To enter, type black cats rock! in the comments ( you can write something else too, but that is all you need to enter). I will announce the winner on Tuesday.

I saw my Grammie yesterday. I love her so very much. I don’t think she loves me though, she didn’t bring me any treats.

The word for today in the #JHC Challenge is ghost.

Mom thought this photos of Lucy from 2010 would be perfect:

#Remember the Rescue

Hi everyone!  I have so much to tell you, but first I want to remind you that today is #Remember Me Thursday to bring awareness to all pets in need of forever homes. Click here to learn more about it. Several of us came from shelters, Joanie and Sammy came from Second Chance and Snowball and KaTwo came from the Secaucus New Jersey Animal Shelter.

Mom entered Snowball’s photo with the hope of helping the shelter win much needed food. If you have a pet from a shelter, you can enter on the website or just post a photo on Instagram or Twitter and label it #RemembertheRescue.

I got to see Grammie yesterday and she will be here today to feed us snacks cat sit while Mom and Dad are out. I love her so very much.

And Sammy wants to thank his friend Sammy K. for his birthday card:

sammypbirthday2016  it is also time for Sammy’s poetry Day featuring the letter O. I have written a haiku for my purrince.

Only

I love my purrince
he is my one and only
I am so blessed

POETRYSAMBADGE

And I will let Mom answer the question for P.S. Annie’s 19-Somethin Challenge is When did you first live on your own? Did you buy or rent your first home?  Does living in the college dorm count as living on your own? If so, I was 18. I lived at college for 4 years, coming home for the summer and a lot of weekends too. After college, I lived at home for a year until I got married and then moved in with my hubby. Fortunately, he already owned a home and I hope we will be here for the rest of our lives. Here is a photo taken right after the new roof and siding were put on in 2010.

And here are the friendly fill-ins for tomorrow:

1. The last movie I saw at the theater was _________________________________.
2. The title of my autobiography would be _____________________________________

3. I would love to learn                                   .
4. I am glad that I learned                                    , because                           .

Happy Phoebe

Hi everyone! I guess my poem worked, I saw Grammie Friday and Saturday! I love her so very, very much. Plus she is going to watch us when Mom and Dad go to see Star Trek on Monday. DSCF2112 (2)

My Purrince sent me a letter and lots of photos. He is such a sweet and handsome boy.

DSCF2117

DSCF2119 (2) This one is my favorite!

I am so happy that I decided to have a giveaway! It has been so hot that I thought some ice cream might cool you down.

DSCF2113 (2)

The winner will get a catnip mat ( ice cream printed fabric) , a crocheted ice cream cone and a button art card with an ice cream cone on it. I am not going to make it easy though. Mom likes to watch some of her favorite movies during her birthday month of July ( glad that is almost over) so I took some notes. You need to identify the films these quotes are from, the one that gets the most correct will win. If several of you get them all correct then I will have a drawing for the winner. Mom has strange tastes so this is going to be tough. Hint: They are not all Nicolas Cage films. Put your answers in the comments, we will keep the guessing open until Monday 9PM EST, the winner will be announced Tuesday.

  1. ” The blouse man is on the premises”
  2. ” I carried a watermelon”
  3. “Our love fern! You let it die!”
  4. ” You were a shooting star amongst ordinary stars”
  5. “It’s really funny. YOU bought an Edsel. “

Selfie Sunday with Phoebe

Hi everyone! I am having a great Birthday/Gotcha Day week!

DSCF1872  This one pound bag of Party Mix arrived in the mail. Mom doesn’t remember winning it so if any of you had a giveaway that we won, please remind us ( she is getting old and forgetful). Brody is always stepping on the laptop, maybe he ordered them. If he did, I may have to start liking him.

I got to see my Grammie, but my Mom told her to hold off on the treats until we get through this bag- she is such a party poop. I love my Grammie so very, very much.

My friend LouLou wrote me a little ditty:

BONNE ANNIVERSAIRE, PHOEBE!!!

Happy birthday to you
It’s always so true
That a silly birthday ditty
Can also be fun for a kitty.

and so did The Trout Talkin Tabbies:
