Trouble’s First Selfie

Hi everyone! We are joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop. This is my first selfie, I am wearing the hat my mom crocheted for me. I think it is a little plain, it needs a bow or something- don’t you agree?

I also get to announce the 2 winners of our A-Z Challenge giveaway. And the winners are- Marvelous Marv and Valentine (Noir Kitty News).

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone. We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful for all of your kind words of support on my family’s recent loss. I am blessed to have such wonderful friends.

I am also thankful that Trouble’s spay surgery went well. When I picked her up, she didn’t look very good and her tongue was hanging out of her mouth, but she perked up a few hours later. Also thankful that her FELV/FIV test was negative.

She wasted no time stealing her Dad’s chair. She is so affectionate and sweet too, I don’t think Trouble is going to be much trouble.

Here is our poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. We had to write a poem based on this photo.

Wrinkles and creases
each one could tell a story
of a life well lived.

We are taking the week off from The Friendly Fill-Ins, but we will be back next week. Tomorrow I will be starting the giveaway for all The A-Z Blogging challenge crocheted items. I will divide all the items between 2 winners.



Yellow Submarine

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade. Today is also Y day for The A-Z Blogging Challenge.

I used lunapic cartoon effect on a photo of KaTwo posing with the crocheted yellow submarine. I like how it makes the submarine stand out. Monday is the last day of the challenge and after that, I will be having a giveaway of all the crocheted items.

I did not get a chance to bring Trouble to get spayed this week, but she will go Tuesday and I will have her FELV/FIV tested. Hopefully, after she heals she can fit right in. She is a sweetie, it is Sammy I worry about causing a problem, but I am hoping he will be more accepting of a female than he has been with Brody. Although, for the most part, he coexists with Brody.



  Look at this adorable face and such big eyes. This is our guest, sequestered to a bathroom, but I  already want to keep her.

Saturday morning I got a call from my Dr.’s office, it was the secretary that I had worked with in 2016 to TNR several cats. Last week , when I got my allergy shot, she told me she had more in need so I agreed to transport again. The shelter deals with ferals Tuesday- Thursday mornings, no appointment needed. Well, a male was attempting to mount this little one so she ran outside and was able to grab her. I am sure she was a drop off and not truly feral. She is so sweet and makes muffins when I pet her. Her cats were all upset and she didn’t have a place to keep her other than the garage and it is still chilly at night so of course I agreed.

I have named her Trouble because she is going to cause me lots of it with my husband. There was also a character on the tv show Grimm named Trouble, although it was spelled differently. I am hoping to someday have a Siamese and a cow kitty, but I will willingly accept any kitty God sends my way and he seems to send me a lot of black ones.
