Hi everyone! Today is day U of the A-Z Blogging Challenge. U is for used, I purchase used items for my cats at tag sales and on Craigslist. I have gotten like new cat trees from both.
Joanie is out of space for all her costumes. I guess we need a bigger box.
I am trying something new. Every week Messymimi lists words for us to make a story with for Words on Wednesday. There were 2 sets of words and I chose: hall, conscious, ad hoc, sign, yarn and share.
Her husband was busy working in the garden which was a big distraction. He was not conscious of what his wife was doing. They rarely discussed anything except for the occasional ad hoc meeting. Now she had grown close to this new guy in such a short time.
She lived for their stolen moments together in the afternoon. Sometimes he got out of bed for a snack like a typical guy. She was a little annoyed that he cut into their special time with food, but at least they were together and he was always willing to share.
The guilt was starting to get to her though. Her husband didn’t sign up for this behavior, he deserved the truth. He was a nice guy despite his obsession with gardening, there were a lot worse things to be obsessed about. They had been married 26 years and this was not the first time she had strayed. Each time was the same, she would meet a lonely soul walking down the street , their eyes would meet and she was hooked.
Even her pet cats were suspicious. One night, she had changed into her pajamas leaving her clothes on the bed. Sammy peed on them. Could he smell him?
Her husband was a forgiving man and after his initial anger passed, their relationship would remain intact. Deep inside he knew she would never change and had accepted it. For a while she would be content with her yarn, making crocheted creations and then she would get into trouble once again. For now, she would come clean. He would be coming in from the garden soon. She headed down the hall to tell him she had taken in another stray cat.
Hi everyone! I am redoing my post from Monday because it disappeared into cyberspace.
Millie hopes he is awww worthy in my slipper to join Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays.
And for The A-Z Blogging Challenge we are up to letter S. S is for senior discount. If you are 60 or over you should ask your vet about one. My hubby just turned 65 in January so we are enjoying the discount.
Hi everyone. Penny has a tip for you today, but first I want to apologize to all who tried to visit on Monday and couldn’t get to the post. I updated some plug-ins and something went wrong. GoDaddy was able to restore and get the blog back , but so far Monday’s post is missing. If it doesn’t return, I will redo it because I want all the letters for the A-Z challenge.
Now on to Penny.
Hi everyone! I have a great tip for you today. You can use pennies to have a contest. You can fill a jar and have people guess how many are in the jar. I am having a contest today, Emmy said I can give away a copy of her book, I Am Not A Skunk. Whoever guesses how many pennies are in this sugar bowl is the winner. Sorry, my cheap mom said we can only mail in the USA. If more than one of you guesses correctly, I will draw names. You have until Friday at 9 PM ( EST) to put your guess on this post. I will announce the winner on Saturday’s post. Good luck!
And today is T day for The A-Z Blogging Challenge. T is for toys and to save money you can make your own. As you know, I crochet toys and sew catnip mats, but you don’t even have to crochet or sew to make toys. You can take a sock, fill it with nip and tie the end. Check Pinterest for more ideas too.
Hi everyone! Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins. Please leave your link (at bottom of post) here or at my co-host’s Four-Legged Furballs. You can also answer in the comment section. Thank you to all who participate. Don’t forget to add your link to the hop so everyone can visit you.
1. An Easter ( or Passover) memory that I have is ________________________.
2. I hope to purchase ________________ this year.
3. When the days are warm, I _________.
4. If the Easter Bunny visited my house, _________.
1. An Easter memory that I have is the priest coming to my grandparents’ house to bless the Easter food when I was very young. Now we have to bring the food to the church hall to get it blessed which we do every year. It is a beautiful tradition.
2. I hope to purchase a sleepypod this year to use for bringing my cats to the vet.
3.When the days are warm, I open the windows to let in some fresh air and give the kitties window whiffies.
4. If the Easter Bunny visited my house, he would think another Easter Bunny had already been here. I am stockpiled for Easter with bags of Dove chocolate and white chocolate m&m’s.
We want to wish all our Jewish friends a Happy Passover. Here are some Passover photos of Angel Phoebe
The A-Z Blogging Challenge, we are up to the letter Q. Q is for questions. Always question why the vet is recommending vaccines and treatments. For example, a cat doesn’t need a FELV vaccine if he/she is indoor only and doesn’t live with a FELV positive cat. Some places just want to make money.
And don’t forget to get your free Kindle version of I Am Not a Skunk, it is free until Saturday. click here

Today is P day for the A-Z Blogging Challenge. P is for poison awareness. If you let your cats outside then you should check this list of plants you should not have in your garden from The Daily Gardener. And everyone should have The ASPCA website bookmarked. They have an extensive list of toxic and non-toxic plants for cats and dogs.
Hi everyone! Today is day O of the A-Z Blogging Challenge. O is for odors and when you live with a lot of cats, sometimes, there are odors. I won’t use scented litters because the smell bothers me and I certainly don’t want the cats to have to lick that stuff off their paws. I just add some baking soda to the litter box. It works, it is safe and it is cheap.
Sometimes one of them pees in a bad spot. Usually Sammy when he is mad at me and sometimes it is when a cat has a bladder infection. I have found washing items with color safe bleach gets the odor right out.
I like how Prancie’s tail is sticking out from under Brody.
Hi everyone! I have a repeat tip for you today. I just want to remind you that Pennies are great for filling plastic Easter eggs. I prefer nip in mine, but the kiddos will like the pennies.
Today we are focusing on the letter N in the A-Z Blogging Challenge. To see more blogs participating in the A-Z hop, click here. N is for nail clipping. To save money , you can clip your cat’s nails at home. I do most of my cats nails except for KaTwo and Polar Bear- even the vet techs can’t do theirs unless they are drugged. If you have never done it before, you can ask them to show you the next time you are at the vets. There are also a lot of videos on youtube that show you how.
I apologize if you are sick of hearing about Emmy’s book. Here is the synopsis: It is about a homeless kitty excited to find a
family, but must first convince them she is not a
skunk. It is loosely based on how the author’s cat,
Emmy came to live with her. ( ages 3-8).
I wish I could afford to give everyone a paperback version, but that is not possible. I have already been in contact with some of you to do reviews and I appreciate your help. I did make a Kindle version and it is available for free from Tuesday-Saturday this week. If anyone has time, I would be very grateful if you could do a review on Amazon, Barnes and Noble or Goodreads.
I have some copies available for sale for $10 which includes shipping in the USA. If you want to purchase one please let me know in the comments and I will contact you. I will be having a giveaway on here soon and one on Goodreads too. Emmy and I thank you for your support.
And we are on the letter M for The A-Z Blogging Challenge. M is for military discount. If you or your spouse is or was in the military, you should ask if your vet clinic offers a military discount. You deserve it 🙂
