Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and The Pet Parade.

More art from The Great One. I helped with the 2 shark ones because she doesn’t like sharks, all the rest are hers. They were wooden ornaments, but I changed them to key rings to give to her Dad and grandpas for Father’s Day. She decided to keep a mermaid for herself 🙂

Sammy thanks you all for the POTP.

2. So far, the highlight of my year has been seeing my great-niece tapping away in her first dance recital. Seeing I Am Not A Skunk get published is right up there too.
3. Cleaning takes up too much time. It needs to get done though.
4. If I didn’t have to sleep, I would spend that extra time reading. So many books , so little time. I have over 800 books on my Goodreads to -read list.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

I am thankful KaTwo is still doing well since her dire diagnosis last September ( knock on wood- 3 times)..

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:

Let us survey
how can we torture mom today?
Once she puts on a clean shirt,
your breakfast you can start to spurt.
When she puts us down for a nap,
it will be a fine time for a crap.
And if she talks to anyone on her cell
we must be sure to yell and yell.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

1. I hope _________________________ never goes out of business.
 
2. So far, the highlight of my year has been__________________.
 


3. _________ takes up too much time.
4. If I didn’t have to sleep, I would spend that extra time _________.
 
One more thing- Today is Sammy’s big day to get some teeth removed and a nose biopsy. All purrs and prayers are appreciated. Thank you.

Penny’s Tips Volume 42- The Canadian Penny Edition

Hi everyone! I am going to tell you about some valuable Canadian Pennies today, but first I have a surprise for you. Mom asked her graphic designer friend to make me a badge and I want to share it with all my fans. Please feel free to display it on your sidebar. And if you need a graphic designer, we highly recommend him, click here.

Now on to those Canadian pennies. I know they are not in circulation anymore, but you may still have some around.   Did you know there is one worth $400,000? It is a 1936 “dot” penny. When King Edward VIII abdicated the throne and King George VI ascended there was no time to change the face on the coin so a tiny raised dot was placed under the coin date to denote those were struck in 1937, not 1936. If you find one, don’t forget who told you about it 🙂

I will fill you in on more valuable Canadian pennies in future editions.

The Timeless Teachings of Guru Zuzu

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday What are YOU Reading?

*Disclaimer- I received a copy of The Timeless Teachings of Guru Zuzu As Told To Tony Broadbent  in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are my own.

The Timeless Teachings of Guru Zuzu As Told To Tony Broadbent is a sweet tribute to the author’s Bombay cat, Zuzu. She was named after Zuzu in It’s A Wonderful Life because in the film, her rose petals were a reminder of the sanctity of life. She taught him so much over the years that he eventually called her The Blessed Guru Zuzu. She has gone to The Rainbow Bridge, but her wisdom lives on in these pages.

It is a very short read, with a quote on one page and an adorable drawing to go with it on the opposite page. The author illustrated many of the pages himself. One in particular that I enjoyed was ” Always remember, never lose your sense of humor. Life’s Far Too Short.” The illustration is of Zuzu with a red clown nose on her.

I highly recommend this book for all cat lovers. Father’s Day is coming up and it would be a great gift for all the cat daddies out there. It is available on Amazon, click here.

Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone! I am a day late for Sabi Saturday, but here is my entry. (Sabi Saturday is a hop where you show something old, repurposed or upcycled. I have shown this in the past, but not for Sabi Saturday so here it is again.

This was my mom’s book as a child. I guess it is still technically hers, but I am the keeper of it. Does anyone know what Dolly Madison’s surprise was?

We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.

We have lots of participants today-

My hubby spotted these beautiful lady slippers and he man.aged to get me out of the house to see them
Angel Phoebe was our nature lover. At the end of her life, we walked her on a harness and she loved it. I wish we had realized how badly she wanted to be outside sooner. This flashback is from September 2017 shortly before she left us.

Yaheetech Cat Tree Review

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. We are most thankful to have gotten to purchase a fantastic cat tree at a discount.

*Disclosure- We purchased a Yaheetech Cat Tree at a discount in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are our own.

  The tree arrived very quickly- two days. I took everything out to make sure it was all there- and it was! I can’t tell you how many times I have ordered something only to have it be missing a part. And all the holes were drilled through which is a miracle. My hubby usually has to get the drill out , but this time he didn’t have to and I actually put it all together by myself- well, with the help of Joanie and Sammy.The only tool needed was an Alan wrench which was was included. The entire tree was assembled in less than 30 minutes- by me! I realize for many of you that is not a big deal, but I was quite proud of myself. And trust me, if I can do it- any one of you can do it too.

Joanie inspecting the first part. As you can see, the condo part has plenty of room for Joanie. That section is 13.4″ x 16.5″ x 11.2’’ (LxWxH).

All the posts are covered in sturdy sisal rope. And the rest in covered in a plush carpet. The base board is very wide to insure stability, it is : 25″ x 19.3″

It also came with a safety strap that I am not planning to use as it is already quite sturdy. Sammy is 17 pounds of pure love and he barely rocked the tree when he jumped on it.

Sammy was lucky to get a turn because Joanie thinks it belongs to her and her Gremmie. I assembled it in the bedroom so I could put the pieces on the bed instead of the floor. I had planned to move it into the living room, but now I may leave it in the bedroom so I don’t break Joanie’s heart.

The only small part that would only be good for a kitten is the tunnel which measures, 8 inches wide and 9 inches long. Joanie decided it was the perfect size for Gremmie.

I am very pleased with this cat tree. The regular price for this 62 inch tree is only $73.99 which includes shipping. They also have many other sizes and styles and a wide selection of colors. Our tree is the Yaheetech 62-inch Cat Tree Condo with Scratching Post Plush Perch and Tunnel, Cat Tower Furniture Gray. ( Click the name to be redirected to the product on Amazon). They had trees 51 inches -79 inches. I know many cats like to be up high but I chose the 62 inch instead of the 79inch because the 79 inch one would be to wide in our small house.

Yaheetech also has a Youtube channel showing many of their products, including assembling the cat trees. Click here.
