Advent Calendar for Cats

This week, I am joining Create with Joy’s Inspire me Monday and Comedy Plus’ Awww…. Mondays. I know several of you already scored the Advent Calendar for Cats at Trader Joe’s. I was lucky to get one the other day too. It is for Prancie

At $5.99/each, I can’t get one for all my cats. I figure she puts up with fluids twice a day and all her meds, she deserves it the most.

Don’t worry, the other eleven kitties will not be excluded. I still have the Advent Calendar I made for them back in 2014.

Here is a refresher on how to make one for your kitties. All you need is a mini muffin pan with 24 spaces, scrapbook paper and a bag of treats.

Just cut out 24 circles ( hubby cut them for me). Then number them 1-24, add treats to each space and cover them. Then hide it from the kitties or they will eat them all on day 1.

Penny will be here tomorrow with another money saving tip for the holidays.

And here is a puzzle of Emmy’s art:

We are also joining   Sammy’s Poetry Day. Here is my poem to go with this photo prompt..

I guess we can blame global warming,
last night is sure was storming.
We sure got a lot of snow,
now it is 70 degrees so I will go with the flow.
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and my co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

Penny’s Tips Volume 53

Hi everyone! Last week I started my series of how to save pennies ( and dollars) this Christmas/Hanukkah season.

My tip this week is to shop at online auctions. There are a lot of them this time of year and many also help a good cause. For example,  our friend, Andrea of Celestial Kitties there is one going right now to support Winnie’s Wish. Mom donated her two children’s books and there are lots of cat themed items like jewelry and home decor.To visit click here.

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

I have lots more tips- see you next week.

Sunday Selfies

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

Joanie took her selfie when The Great One was here the other day. We had all the costumes and props out on the bed. Somehow the plastic handcuffs ended up not getting put away. My hubby rolled on them during the night and asked me why there were handcuffs in bed. 🙂
