Selfie Sunday with Phoebe

Hi everyone! I am having a great week. I got to see Grammie on Friday and look what she brought me us. I love her so very, very much.

Mom has gone crazy again and chopped up 7 more books. Plus she has been chasing us around the house to get photos of our Halloween costumes. I must say that I did a great job with mine- they will all be on display tomorrow. Look at all this nip Mom is drying and she has it in the dining room which is off-limits to us- phooey!

“The Great One” is going to be one on Tuesday. She has really cut into my Grammie time, but I feel bad for her because my Mom sings Soft Kitty to her all the time. And you know how bad my Mom sings. So I got her a birthday gift, a soft kitty with Penny’s voice singing ( not our Penny, the one from Big Bang Theory).

 

I decided to have a giveaway for The Day of the Dead even though we don’t celebrate it. We celebrate All Soul’s Day and All Saints Day, but they all recognize our departed loved ones.

Hi everyone! I have another beautiful graphic of Lucy that was made by Pipo and Minko’s Mom ( http://webeessiamese.blogspot.com/ )

LucytributeThank you- it is wonderful just like Lucy.

For today’s ROAR, I want to show you what I made while I was grieving ( I still am) Lucy. My niece had a tag sale and I asked her for the t-shirts that didn’t sell so I could make dog toys. I don’t know how to crochet any dog toys, I tried to make a bone once, but the pattern was too difficult for me. 001 008I ended up making 52 of these- I was obsessed with ripping up the shirts and making these. When I ran out of shirts, I searched the house for any older ones to rip up ( my hubby has a few less undershirts now) .I have a little fabric left for about 10 more and then I will go back to crocheting. I highly recommend this as a stress reliever. I found the directions here: http://barkpost.com/how-to-make-a-t-shirt-dog-toy/  . All these will be sold at the vet clinic where they sell my crocheted toys and all the money  goes to PAL. At least something good will come from my grief.

Penny wants to remind you to comment for a chance to win these Big Bang Theory/Soft Kitty socks – winner will be announced on Thursday’s Post- 010

I was sad to see another kitty went to the bridge ( http://fortypaws.blogspot.com/ )

Tortie Tuesday Giveaway

Hi everyone! Thank you all for your sympathies on my Lucy. I will always love her and miss her every day. I am so lucky to have such an amazing group of cat loving friends to help me through this difficult time. When my KaChoo went to the bridge in 2010, I did not have all this support which made it all the more difficult. Lucy is part of my heart and will always be part of this blog too. We had a couple more books read to do reviews on that will be featured as well as some unpublished photos.

Thank you Nellie ( https://catfromhell.wordpress.com/ ) for this beautiful picture of Lucy and thanks to all of you who paid tribute to Lucy on your blogs.

Penny has been looking forward to having a giveaway ( clearly not thrilled about the photo part).  I named Penny after the character on The Big Bang Theory. New episodes start next Monday so we are having a giveaway for these great socks- one pair has “Soft Kitty” on them. Just leave a comment today and/or tomorrow to be entered and she will announce the winner on Thursday ( if Phoebe lets her have a turn). 019 021
