Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

We are also joining Sammy’s Poetry Day. Here is my poem to go with this photo:

Look! A tiny door.
I wonder if it is a little store?
Maybe some forest fairies live there.
It is certainly not the home of a bear.
A place for garden gnomes to gather together
to hide in all kinds of bad weather?
I was wrong, it is the home of elves
they had lots of cookies on their shelves.

Notice I wrote HAD lots of cookies 🙂

Sammy is modeling mom’s W creation for The A-Z Blogging Challenge

A worm

Mom had to make another one because Sammy claimed this one for himself and she would never tell her little Cat Scout that he can’t have something he wants.

And here are the Friendly Fill-ins for Friday. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.


1. I could really use ____________________.

2. ________________________ is a charity that I like to support.

3. One time, I broke                           , and                          .                   

4. I wish that I had                    , when I was young(er).

 

 

 

#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.

Blog the Change For Animals (#BtC4A)

Blog the Change for Animals (#BtC4A) is a chance for bloggers to write about an animal related cause. I want to write about adopting more than one cat from the shelter.

It breaks my heart when families get torn apart ( people and animal). When I went to adopt Sammy, I did not know he had a sister. As soon as I saw he had a sibling, there was no way I was leaving her behind. I had only brought $70 for his adoption fee and I was already tempting fate adopting him without asking my husband’s input on the matter.

I didn’t ask because I knew he would say no, we already had 13 cats at the time. In matters concerning cats, I find it easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. I ended up paying Sammy’s fee, but leaving him there for the weekend because I did not want Joanie (Meghan, at the time) to be without him. I was also told they had another sibling that had already been adopted which haunts me still. I can’t believe shelters will separate families of cats and that people are willing to adopt just one. They were already 4 years old at the time and were obviously bonded.

  These two have given me so much happiness. And my hubby is very close to both of them too.

If you are thinking of adopting a cat, how about adopting a bonded pair? I am sure you will not regret it.

We are also joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.

I thought there was a hop for Blog the Change, but I can’t find the information right now so I will add it as soon as I find it.

 

Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone! I can see why Joanie likes this blankie so much, good thing Mom got her a backup one.

Brody has a comfy spot too. He says there is plenty of room for you Leia.

Sammy is going to a party at Cat Scouts today. He is supposed to wear a hat so he chose this one. I wonder if he is going Wabbit Hunting too?

We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

Tomorrow is H day for The A-Z Blogging Challenge- any guesses on what Mom made?

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

  I iz thankful that mom bought me a new blankie a few weeks ago and I liked it so much that she bought me a backup blankie. You may wonder why I get 2 blankies. I am special because I sleep between my Mom and Dad for most of the night. My blankies have Pusheen the Cat on them , Petco clearance $3.00.

Mom said to thank everyone who gave suggestions for the book vases. She is going to try some of your ideas and will post the results when they are completed.

And here is our poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. Here is the photo we had to write a poem about: for today.

Sometimes problems get you down
instead of a smile, you want to frown.
You feel like you are in the dark
in a flood without an ark.
Instead of feeling dread
just keep moving ahead.
If you try with all your might,
you will soon see the light.

And for the A-Z Blogging Challenge, we have Sammy posing with an eyeball.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for Friday.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

We are thankful that Tallulah and Emmy are both feeling better. I already notice Emmy doing more of her night “hunting” and leaving me toys.I think that means her medicine is making her feel better.

And Mrs. Potato Head is glad she was able to outrun Gremmie. I don’t think she will be gremlin sitting anytime soon.

My Sammy thought he would try a poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, we had to write one based on this photo:

Cat Scouts is a lot of fun
We go hiking in the sun
We search for a perfect spot
you need to know how to tie a knot
It is good to be near water
we may even see an otter
Time to set up the tent
this will be quite the event.

And here are the Friendly Fill-ins for Friday. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two. Please say a prayer for her cat, Chloe Jo who is battling lymphoma.


1. I am the _________________ in my family.

2. I have __________________ sibling(s).
3. I am looking forward to                            this Spring.

4. The first sign of Spring this year was                      .

Hi everyone! We have a Chewy review today. Nutro Wild Frontier Real Chicken & Beef, Real Salmon & Trout Recipe Pate Multipack Adult High-Protein Grain-Free Cat Food Trays don’t contain any artificial flavor, colors or preservatives.

* We received Nutro Wild Frontier Real Chicken & Beef, Real Salmon & Trout Recipe Pate Multipack Adult High-Protein Grain-Free Cat Food Trays in exchange for a fair review, all opinions are our own.

I like the small portion sizes so I don’t have to refrigerate leftovers. I was surprised that everyone wasn’t interested in these though. Emmy dug right in the first time, but refused to eat it again. This is common with her, we call her Miss Pick.Prancie loved it.Brody did too.Sammy thought Prancie needed some help. He loved it, but he is on a prescription food so I just let him have a little.

Penny and Millie wouldn’t try it and KaTwo never eats canned food. I guess 8 out of 12 that liked it is pretty darn good.

If you want to try it, it is on sale at Chewy for $17.89 for 12 twin packs. Click here.

And while you are there, stock up because they always have free 1-2 day shipping on orders over $49.
