Strawberry Puzzle

HI everyone.Sadly, another one of our kitty friends left for The Rainbow Bridge. Sweet Minchie of Cat-a-Holic. To visit his family, click here.

We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

Eastside Cats asked Penny for another puzzle so we hope this counts as our art. The other day, I had a bunch of strawberries spread out on a cookie sheet to ripen and my Mom asked if I was setting up another puzzle like the penny one. I wasn’t, but that was a good idea so thanks Mom. It took me 49 minutes, I guarantee you that you will beat that time.

Bikini Season

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade. Basil, one of the hosts of the Pat Parade is not feeling well, please purr and pray for him.

We are also joining the Appreciate the Moments blog hop hosted by Everyday Dog Mom and Dog Mom Days. The word this month is summer and nothing says summer like a kitty in a bikini.   I love this badge that Ann of Zoolatry made for us back in 2015.

Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

  For my art, I am reusing this art I made of Lucy in 2015. She posed with a photo of my Dad in the Air Force and his memorial flag.

Thank you all for the purrs and prayers for Emmy. She is eating again. I hope she stays healthy, but I know the antibiotic shot has an anti inflammatory effect that helped Phoebe eat when she first had one so I am cautiously optimistic. I do think the addition of Trouble stressed her which could have led to a UTI.

 

Joanie’s Traveling Cow is Leaving Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade. First, I want to thank everyone for the constipation relief suggestions for Brody. I am going to get some Mirilax today. He is eating again, but I don’t want him to go through that again.

Joanie’s Lucky Traveling Cow Moo is almost ready to travel. Last call to sign up for a visit from her. The Great One was here for a visit on Thursday so I had her bring her Dr. Kit. Moo received a comprehensive exam including necessary vaccines.

 

Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

Everyone told me that Grammie is wonderful and gives out lots of treats. Well, she did give out treats, but she is a squealer.. She told my Mom that I had a mouthful of Brody’s fur. Then she said Sammy was better behaved than I was and that I eat faster than he does.

This is what I think of Grammie.

In my defense, Mom saw me chase Sammy when he chased Brody.

 

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

Phoebe’s favorite day of the year was Cinco de Mayo. Her Dad always gave her $5 for pole dancing and for the past few years, Grammie did too. Last year I knew in my heart it would be her last Cinco de Mayo, but I didn’t want to believe it. I used Lunapic to add a frame to her photo from last year.

Here are links to her past Cinco de Mayo celebrations:

Yellow Submarine

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade. Today is also Y day for The A-Z Blogging Challenge.

I used lunapic cartoon effect on a photo of KaTwo posing with the crocheted yellow submarine. I like how it makes the submarine stand out. Monday is the last day of the challenge and after that, I will be having a giveaway of all the crocheted items.

I did not get a chance to bring Trouble to get spayed this week, but she will go Tuesday and I will have her FELV/FIV tested. Hopefully, after she heals she can fit right in. She is a sweetie, it is Sammy I worry about causing a problem, but I am hoping he will be more accepting of a female than he has been with Brody. Although, for the most part, he coexists with Brody.

Trouble

 

  Look at this adorable face and such big eyes. This is our guest, sequestered to a bathroom, but I  already want to keep her.

Saturday morning I got a call from my Dr.’s office, it was the secretary that I had worked with in 2016 to TNR several cats. Last week , when I got my allergy shot, she told me she had more in need so I agreed to transport again. The shelter deals with ferals Tuesday- Thursday mornings, no appointment needed. Well, a male was attempting to mount this little one so she ran outside and was able to grab her. I am sure she was a drop off and not truly feral. She is so sweet and makes muffins when I pet her. Her cats were all upset and she didn’t have a place to keep her other than the garage and it is still chilly at night so of course I agreed.

I have named her Trouble because she is going to cause me lots of it with my husband. There was also a character on the tv show Grimm named Trouble, although it was spelled differently. I am hoping to someday have a Siamese and a cow kitty, but I will willingly accept any kitty God sends my way and he seems to send me a lot of black ones.
