Friendly Fill-Ins Week 59

Hi everyone! Before I start the fill-ins, I want to update my challenges. I have been trying to do all the suggested challenges. I did my own and wrote to a college roommate who emailed me back. I did write a poem ( well, I helped Phoebe with her banana one), I did a craft project ( crocheting), I mailed CK a gift- well played CK. 🙂 I enjoyed every moment except for the one when Sammy peed on the couch. I have been mostly patient and kind with everyone. Someone wrote to help an elderly person, not sure if this counts, but I donated a dozen bee balm plants to the senior center to give away. I try to do that every month, I have donated false shamrock and prayer plants too.

I still need to not eat meat for a day which I guess will be today. And one I doubt I can do is make a new friend with similar interests. I don’t really go many places and it takes a while to build a friendship so I can’t do that one..I enjoyed all these challenges and thank you all for the ideas.And now fill-in time.


1. A recurring dream I have is _______________________.

2. Turn ______________ into ________________________.

3.                              is driving me crazy!

4. Lately, I have been                        .
My answers:
1. A recurring dream I have is the adult version of dreaming one is in school and didn’t prepare for a test. I often dream it is Christmas Eve and guests are arriving, but I am still looking for decorations and I haven’t started cooking.
2. Turn old books into art.
Remember my pumpkin books? I have been finding more ideas on Pinterest that I will be trying soon.
3. Sammy is driving me crazy! I give him more attention than any other cat and he still acts out once in a while and pees on the couch. Luckily, I had it covered with a waterproof pad.
4. Lately, I have been trying to be more thankful for all that I have. Which reminds me, my 3 thankfuls for today are: I am thankful for all who participate in The Friendly Fill-Ins, I love learning about everyone. I am thankful strawberry season is almost over and I am thankful that Joanie is sitting on my lap as I type this.

Wordless Wednesday

Hi everyone! This is mostly wordless, but I need to add my three thankfuls- I am thankful I got to spend time with my Mom and great-niece yesterday, thankful Emmy is adjusting well, thankful I have a washer machine because Sammy was a bad boy.

Prancie says these are too tangy , she would prefer a bowl of steak.

Happy Father’s Day!

Hi everyone! Happy Father’s Day out there to all Cat Daddies. I am a lucky kitty to have one. Here is a photo from April ( Snowball is in it too- sniff).

  Dad always shares his supper with us.

Mom is interrupting my post to list her 3 things she is thankful for today.

Thanks Phoebe, sorry to interrupt. I am thankful that I had a wonderful father.Even though he passed away in 2001, I think of him every day.

I am also thankful that my hubby is such a good cat daddy and loves them as much as I do.

I am also thankful he is an excellent gardener.He has picked over 700 spears of asparagus and lots of strawberries, I even got to freeze some.

I am happy to report I accomplished more of the challenges too- I prayed, took a nap, did a random act of kindness and I even smiled at 3 people at the mall.

Now back to Phoebe-

Do you like my hat? Did you read Kali’s post on Thursday, if not, be sure to click here. We are starting a club for older female cats called The Crotchety Cougars. You just need to be a girl cat, over 15 to join. You will get a badge to display and my Mom will make you a hat like this.

Thanks to Kali’s Mom for designing this beautiful badge

  Hats ready to go to members.Madi already joined. We hope there are more of you lovely ladies out there.

I got to see Grammie on Saturday, I love her so very much.

We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop and The Pet Blogghttp://downhomeinnc.blogspot.com/2017/06/caturday-art-and-crotchety-cougar-hat.htmler Showcase. I am honored to be chosen as one of Momma and Bear Cat’s picks this time.

And the Emmy Goes to

You read that right- it’s a girl! And the Emmy goes to me 🙂 Thank you all for crossing those paws. She is even spayed already, FELV/FIV negative and no microchip so she is all mine. Emmy travels so well, not a peep out of her and it was an hour round trip plus and hour and a half waiting for our turn.

The vet wrote down she is 10, but said she could be anywhere from 6-14. Her teeth look great, but she thought her eyes looked old. I think they are just a very unique color, I am hoping to get some photos soon. She also has a heart murmur and may be hyperthyroid so I need to take her to my regular vet. We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday because I am thankful that I get to keep Emmy.

And now I will let Phoebe take over-

Thanks Mom, I was wondering when I was going to get my turn. There were lots of guesses and 12 of you guessed correctly, no chip and a girl. So I had Mom write your names down and I had Dad pull a name out of his baseball cap. And the winner is Critters in the Cottage-Congratulations!

We are praying for two of the Critters in the Cottage, Esme and Mitalee.

I am going to see Grammie today- finally! I love her so very much. I haven’t seen her since Saturday!!!

Sammy is a conehead right now. He has a small scratch on his ear, but when he scratches and shakes his head, it looks like a crime scene. Mom said she needs to hire “The Cleaner” from the TV show, The Blacklist.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. It is a Haiku titled Zen.

Wanting for nothing
except a meal and warm bed,
cats are very zen.

And here 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. And make sure you add your link if you do a post with the fill-ins.

1. a prop from a tv show or film I would like to own is _____________________________________.

2. My oldest friendship is _________________________________.

3. Whenever I                        , I always                            .

4. The best                    is                          .

Wordless Wednesday with a Twirl

We wonder if Sammy did a “twirl” like Kramer did on Seinfeld.

Hooligan in a Can

Hi everyone!   Look at all the goodies I won at Cat Scouts. All I did was guess correctly on which horse would win.

  I guessed #5 because Mom made this photo of me on Faceinhole.com and I was on horse #5. Isn’t that cool?

This can of goodies is like a TARDIS, much bigger on the inside. I can’t believe how many goodies were in this can.

  Look at all this loot- there were 3 packages- silvervine, valerian and premium catnip. Plus a birdy that sounds just like a real one ( Jinx caught it and delivered it to Mom). There was a ball and a spring and a tin of kitty mints and a laser and a hexbug and a pouch of food too.

Thank you Denmaster! I promise to share- eventually.

The good news is your folks can get you your very own Hooligan in a Can too from Cat Scouts. You don’t have to be a Cat Scout to order one, but Cat Scouts is lots of fun and open to boy and girl kitties, any age , from any country and you don’t even have to have a blog. To be transported to Cat Scouts to order your own Hooligan in a Can just Click Here.

And who knows, you may meet that special someone at Cat Scouts like I did with Maggie.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week #54

Hi everyone! Time for The Friendly Fill-Ins Week 54. The linky may not be ready at midnight like it usually is because Annie has been getting violent storms causing internet troubles. We apologize for any delay, but once the linky is up, you have until Wednesday at midnight to add your link so be sure to add it at McGuffy’s Reader. Thank you to all who participate.

1. I have googled _________________________.
2. I have________________________ on Ebay.
3. I think                                .

4.                         thinks                              .

My answers:

  1. I have googled myself, I bet a lot of you have 🙂 I always google questions about cat health too.
  2. I have bought and sold countless items on Ebay.
  3. I think that I think too much, I can never calm my mind when I attempt to meditate, it feels like there is a ping-pong ball bouncing around in there.
  4. My husband thinks I spend too much money on veterinary care- too bad, my cats are my only indulgence, we don’t travel or have children or live extravagantly.

Sammy got mail today, he won at Cat Scouts betting on The Kentucky Derby. He will tell you all about his prize tomorrow- unless he has a catnip hangover.

Butterfly Cat Scratcher

Hi everyone! Today I want to tell you about a great product from a company that has been in business since 1986.

* Disclaimer: We received a butterfly design corrugated scratcher from Cat Claws, Inc. in exchange for a fair review.

Cat Claws, Inc. was started by Bill and Gale Seliskar. Bill worked for a corrugated box company in 1986 and realized their cats were always scratching the samples he brought home ( in addition to their couch). Once they made these and added catnip, the cats preferred them to the couch and the business was started.

In 2006, they added Scratch ‘n Shapes to their product line. These led to the start of their retail brand, Imperial Cat in 2007.When Bill passed away on 2009 and his wife in 2010, their 2 daughters took over and the company continues to thrive by offering smart solutions for devoted cat owners. The company is based in Morrilton, Arkansas and makes many products right in the USA.

This butterfly is their newest design. And Sammy definitely approves.

It sells for $24.95 and comes with a big bag of catnip to sprinkle on for more fun. Sammy is 19 pounds, possibly 20 and it was plenty big enough for him. Joanie and Phoebe have enjoyed it too but Sammy is the scratcher king of this house.

#Chewy Influencer

Hi everyone! This month my cats tried Merrick Backcountry Grain-Free Real Chicken Recipe Freeze-Dried Raw Cat Treats from Chewy. *

* Disclosure: We are part of the Chewy Blogger Program. We received the treats for free in exchange for reviewing them and spreading the word about Chewy. All opinions are our own.

 

These treats were a hit or miss with nothing in between. Joanie and Brody gobbled them right up.

Sammy loved them too as well as Prancie

KaTwo, Phoebe, Snowball and Penny did not like them . Nine out of thirteen is still pretty darn good though. They do break up easily to make them easier to chew. I just fed them as treats, but they can be added to the top of canned foods too.

The ingredients list is short which is always good:

Chicken, Chicken Liver, Dried Peas, Dried Potatoes, Gelatin, Salt, Mixed Tocopherols (Preservative).

Chewy has them on sale for $2.72/ 1 oz. bag. And don’t forgetMerrick Backcountry Grain-Free Real Chicken Recipe Freeze-Dried Raw Cat Treats has free 1-2 day shipping on all orders over $49 so stock up on everything while you are there.
