Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful I am not the one going to the vet today. Sammy is getting a dental and Polar Bear is getting blood work for his thyroid.

I have a poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. This week was a toughie, we had to come up with a poem to go with this photo.

Santa needs some help
foggy weather has arrived
Rudolph’s time to shine

That’s the best I could do.

And the winner of the Grumpy Giveaway is Martha from Plowing Through Life, she also has another funny blog Miniaturopolis. You should check them both out.

Her are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

3. One holiday memory that I cherish is                   .

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.

#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!

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

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:

100_5023-2“Please bring my boyfriend, Pierrot everything he wants, Love Snowball”

100_5019-2

” I want a song with my name in it like Noel has. Love, Tallulah”

100_5011-2

” Please, please help Momma Kat and her kittens find a loving forever home. Love, Noel”

100_5014-2

#ChewyInfluencer

Hi everyone! This month we jumped at the chance to try Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost Mixers Chicken Formula Freeze- Dried Cat Food Topper. I have been wanting to get my cats on a raw diet , but with 13 cats, buying one would be too expensive and I am too lazy to make my own. I thought this would be a good test to see if they like raw. It was actually hard to tell it is raw because they are freeze-dried, dry being the key word there.

*Disclaimer: We received a bag of this food in exchange for a fair review as part of the Chewy Blogger Outreach Program. All opinions are those of the cats that tasted them.

100_9698Polar Bear and his 2 wives loved them.

100_9700 Joanie loved them.

100_9702Phoebe did too. 100_9709Millie liked them too  100_9704I even let Sammy try a few ( he is on a special diet)

100_9705Snowball munched hers up 100_9707and Prancie did too ( Joanie was waiting just in case Prancie left any).

Everyone liked them except for Penny and KaTwo so we have 11 out of 13 that approved. If you want to try them, they are on sale this month for $11.99/ 6 ounce bag. And Chewy

always has free shipping on orders over $49 so stock up. Click Here to go to Chewy

Hi everyone! Today is Chewy day so we are joining hosts Golden Woofs and Oz the Terrier for the Chewy Blog Hop

*Disclaimer: We received the food for free from Chewy in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are our own.

This month we chose The I and Love and You Variety Pack Canned Cat Food . It is made in the USA, carrageenan free, with no filler or by-products. The variety comes in 3 flavors: turkey, cod and chicken. So far, we only tried the turkey, but it was a big hit with 11 out of 13. As I have written before KaTwo won’t eat canned food and Sammy is on a special diet so thy are excluded.

DSCF2249 (2) Noel devoured it

DSCF2250Joanie loved it too, she usually vomits after canned food, but she held this down.

DSCF2251 Prancie didn’t even wait for a plate

DSCF2254 (2)Polar Bear liked it DSCF2255 (2)and Brody DSCF2257 (2)and Millie too

It is on sale  this month for $13.99, it is usually $25.99/ for the 12 pack variety. Be sure to stock up because orders over $49 always ship free. Click here to go to Chewy

Pokemon Go Giveaway

Hi everyone! I am impressed that some of you knew those were Pokeballs yesterday. I really don’t understand what this Pokemon Go thing is, but I thought it would be a good idea for a giveaway. DSCF2231 (2) 

The prize is the Pokemom Go button card, a catnip Pokeball and a Bad Cat book. The book has nothing to do with Pokemon, but my Mom is getting senile and bought it at a book sale even though we already have one. Just leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway. You can comment daily for more chances, I will announce the winner on Tuesday.

DSCF2214 (2)  Turns out Brody isn’t as dumb as he looks. He decided that he likes Grammie now. I love my Grammie so very much, I hope I get to see her this week.

Some of the others wanted to do selfies today.DSCF2236 (2)DSCF2215 (2)Polar Bear and Snowball
