Ten Things of Thankful

Hi everyone! We have a busy post today. First off , we are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop.My first thankful is the art-

  1. I won a necklace from Memorial Glass Pendants on Cat Chat with Caren and Cody quite a while ago. It is made with ashes of a beloved pet and I had planned to send a little of each of my angels, but Phoebe was so sick that I couldn’t bring myself to deal with it. After Phoebe passed away, I was too sad.Well, last week I finally sent some ashes for the necklace. I decided that Phoebe and Snowball were always together so I chose to have the necklace made with their ashes.

My photo doesn’t do the necklace justice. It is so beautiful and looks like stars in the sky.

2. I am thankful that the owner let me know when the ashes arrived and sent back the ones she didn’t use as well.

3. Hubby and I celebrated our 25th anniversary this week ( I guess that should be #1) .

4. A pizza party with the great one and my mom.

5. Made a cheesecloth ghost with the great one, she is finally at a good age to do some arts and crafts.

6. Mom and I spent the day at the casino on Thursday ( we go every year around her birthday).

7. I only lost $3 at the casino, the most I will part with is $20.

8. Black Cats Tell All came out this week and I am thankful Spooky’s story is part of it.To order click here

9. Thankful some of you plan to watch the movie I was in that Joanie told you about on Monday.

10. Thankful I was able to get Sammy’s vomit off my favorite black cat shirt. It was hanging off the bureau and he stood on the bureau and yacked over the edge.

Remember Me Thursday

Hi everyone! Thank you for all the words of comfort you have left on the loss of Phoebe.I will answer all your comments soon. I am still taking a break , but will return for our regular posts on Monday. I didn’t want to miss this special day because it is so important.

Today is Remember Me Thursday, the day we remember those in shelters still needing homes. Some will die in shelters before they ever get their forever homes.

KaTwo and Snowball spent 2 years in The Secaucus New Jersey Animal Shelter before I adopted them.I wish I had more than 4 years with Snowball, but I am thankful for the time we had.

Joanie and Sammy were also in a shelter when I adopted them. I went for Sammy, not knowing he had a sister, but once I saw her, I wasn’t leaving her behind. Please spread the word to adopt from shelters.

You can help your favorite shelter to win prizes( lots of food) in 3 ways:

  1. Take a photo of your rescue pet and post it on Instagram #RememberTheRescue and #RememberMeThursday.
  2. Post the photo on Twitter too with the same hashtags as above.
  3. Upload your photo to the website. Click here.

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.

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! You caught me sharpening my nails 

I saw Grammie Thursday and Saturday. I love her so very much! I even waited for her right by the door. Sadly, I have a lot of free time now. I used to spend a lot of time giving Snowball a bath.

I miss her so much.

Mom was so worried about Snowball that our 3rd Blogoversary came and went on May 23rd. It doesn’t seem like it has been so long since we got started. We are thankful for all the friends we have made these last 3 years. And I am thankful that my purrince found me too.

Thankful Thursday

HI everyone!

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. We are most thankful for all of you. We appreciate all your comforting comments you left on the loss of dear Snowball. We already showed you the beautiful badges made by Ann and Pam. We want to show you a few more.

Thank you to Lorianne for this amazing drawing of Snowball ( she even got her eyes correct).

Thank you to  Pipo and Minko

Thank you to Peaches and Paprika

And to Madi for this wonderful poem:

So sweet
Never to be forgotten
One loved kitty
White as Snow
Beautiful
Adored by her family
Lush fur
Little lady of the house

And thank you to the Trout Talkin Tabbies

St Francis said, “Come little one, there is nothing more I can do for you here, don’t be afraid”, and St Francis gently picked up Snowball  and carried her into the kingdom of heaven…..when the little cat looked around, she realized everything St Francis told her on her journey was true….heaven was beautiful beyond what mere words could express…..

Snowball saw there was no pain, suffering, fear, sickness, hunger, thirst or sorrow, until she looked down and saw the family and friends she had left behind, and for a very brief moment, the little cat too, was filled with sorrow.
then St Francis bestowed Snowball with a set of gossamer wings and said, “Use them to return to your family, when their need is the greatest, as nothing can separate your bond of love.  Hold each other in your hearts and your memories, until you are reunited again at heaven’s door.”
….. and when the little cat tried on her wings, she knew nothing was impossible…… when there is….love❤️❤️
Words can’t express how thankful we are for all of you.
And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter Y
Yarn
Yarn is lots of fun
just like napping in the sun.
You can make a hat
that will fit your cat.
You can also make toys filled with nip
they will take you on a trip.
There is no contest
yarn is the best.
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.

1. A law I would like to see passed is _________________________.

2. My favorite card game is ______________________.

3. With Summer unofficially here,                                   .
4. A favourite Summer memory is                                   .
PS: I love you Grammie!!! I can’t wait to see you today.

Goodbye My Sweet Snowball

It is with a broken heart , I am writing this post. My sweet Snowball left us this morning. She had been having health problems since May 15th, but I was afraid to write about them for fear of jinxing her. We finally had our appointment with the cardiac specialist today and came home armed with several medicines to help ( she had just been on lasix to keep her stable). And sadly, she passed away the minute we got in the house.

Thank you Pam for this beautiful badge

Thank you Ann for this beautiful badge

I am going to take a little time off. I will visit you all soon. XO

#ChewyInfluencer -Fancy Feast

Hi everyone! Today is Chewy day and this month we had the pleasure of sampling Fancy Feast which is always a hit.

*Disclaimer: We were given a case of 24 Fancy Feast Classic Poultry and Beef Variety Pack Canned Cat Food in exchange for a fair review and spreading the word about Chewy. All opinions are our own.

I wanted this mainly for Snowball because of her lack of teeth.

She loved it! So did Jinx and Penny and Millie too! 

I didn’t test it on everyone though because some only like the kind with gravy. It was a hit on all who did test it though.

It is on sale this month for only $12.74 for a case of 24. Click here. And don’t forget Chewy has free 1-2 day shipping on order over $49. They have great boxes too!

And for the A-Z Blogging Challenge we have P for pickle. I need to make another one though because Joanie swiped this one and licked it several times ( she is embarrassed).
