Hi everyone!!Time to get hopping, we are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that I got to see my Grammie on Wednesday. I love her so very much and I get sad when I don’t see her.
I am in the bunk bed because I am all tuckered out from the Kits, Kritters and K9s Valentine’s K-oss dance. My purrince and I had a wonderful time. Click here to see photos and please remember the camera adds 10 pounds and they are all on my butt-phooey!
Mom sometimes write articles for The Daily Mews , but this month I decided to give it a try. I am svelte so I am just the one to give dieting advice to Mom and KaTwo. They haven’t followed any of it though. Click here.
Jinx is a handsome mancat
there is no denying that.
He likes human, rabbits and dogs
I bet he even likes frogs.
There is one thing he does hate
other cats, he won’t tolerate.
Mom is skipping the movie hop this week because it is Shakespeare adaptations and she hasn’t seen any. Here are the fill-ins for tomorrow, Mom came up with the 1st two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the 2nd two.
1. Snow ___________________.
2. My favorite kind of soup is ______________________.
Can you believe that? She said we need to ration these to last until then- PHOOEY!!!! I haven’t seen Grammie since Sunday and now she is going to be busy with ” The Great One” so I don’t get to see her until Saturday. I love her so very much too!
Plus I caught Snowball and Prancie having a meeting with suck-up Brody.
Mom wrote about him this month too for The Daily Mews: Click here
Today’s question for P.S. Annie’s 19-Somethin’ Challenge is, what celebrity death upset you the most? Mom says she remembers Elvis died when she was 8, but she wasn’t really upset about it.

2. In my home, ____________________needs to be repaired.
3.I thought I lost ________, but ______. 4.Once, I found _______.
Happy Thursday everyone! I decided to upgrade my Christmas stocking this year.
My small last year’s one is next to it, but you can barely see it. I figure I have been mostly good this year and I do a lot of work around here so I deserve a big stocking.
I helped Sammy with his Cat Scout service project, sending cards to people in rehab centers and a hospice. Sammy did do some of the work too.
Stinky went to the vet Wednesday. She can see that the retina in her bad eye is flat, but she can’t tell us why. She gave Mom the number for a kitty eye specialist about an hour away so Mom is going to call today. She is hoping to get in for Monday or she may have to wait until after Christmas. Mom was actually a little relieved because she would rather have a problem in the eye than in the brain. Thank you all for your purrs and prayers. We will keep you posted.
I haven’t seen my Grammie since Monday. I love her so very much, I hope she visits today.
Mom wrote another article on The Daily Mewz There are lots of interesting articles on that site.
We snail mailed and emailed our Christmas card and tried to get to everyone. If we missed you, we are very sorry. Please take this:
Mom heard about a little girl that was burned on 75 % of her body in a fire, the girl lost her father and 3 siblings in the fire too. All she wants for Christmas is cards, the address is on this link:
Happy Tummy Tuesday everyone!I was hoping to do another plant quiz, but didn’t have time to take photos. Hubby and I decided to “forage” and had fried Queen’s Anne Lace blossoms, they were tasty with a hint of lemon. I am going to get a book from the library on foraging because I know many things looks similar, but some are edible and others are poisonous.
We went to Nellie’s 5th Blogoversary party and to thank us, sweet Nellie sent this beautiful badge that we will proudly display on the sidebar.
Thank you Nellie and family!
I told you on Sunday that our fill-in was used this week on Lou Belcher’s Blog and here is the cartoon:
It has been very cold lately so Lucy rarely leaves the heated throw for fear that another kitty will take it over:
The other day I came across The Story of a Street Cat Named Sabrina by Sheryl Lee. It was free on Amazon that day, but it is currently $2.99. This got my attention because I had a cat named Sabrina who passed away in 2012 ( of old age) :
This was a short read of 39 pages that is based on the writer’s cat. She found her cat, Sabrina on the streets of Egypt as a kitten in very bad shape. She was thin, dirty and full of fleas and worms. I don’t like sad stories, but I am glad this had a happy ending for her kitty. It does break my heart to know that there are so many street cats in Egypt and no programs that are helping to TNR. A lot of people feed these cats which is kind of them, but I don’t know why no one can get a program started to get them fixed. Here is a link to the book:
Happy Friday everyone! Today is book day and Lucy and I are both recommending The Story of Fester Cat by Paul Magrs. I finally got the book from the library, but I liked it so much that I am going to order my own copy.
As you know, I don’t like books that make me cry. I will let you know I cried briefly, but the book is so uplifting that one cry was worth the rest of it. Fester is 12 years old when he decides to move in with Jeremy and Paul. Prior to that, he is basically on his own because the other families that he has lived with don’t really take good care of him. The 3 of them become a family and Fester tells us how it all came to be from his days on the street to life with Paul and Jeremy.
This book really hit home with me because it reminded me of our Spooky. He lived with 2 other families on our street until last year when he decided to move in with us. Spooky doesn’t try to get out, but if he did, I would stop him. Fester is allowed to go out, but always returns to his friends. This is a wonderful story about the power of love and friendship. It shows that our true families are those we choose to be with ( even if they are furry). I think every cat lover will enjoy it.
