Friendly Fill-Ins Week 62

Hi everyone! Today is Phoebe’s Gotcha Day!!! I got her 14 years ago. My Mom drove and my niece was there too. My niece had just finished her freshmen year in high school and now she has been out of high school for 11 years and is married with a baby-time flies by too quickly.

I love you Phoebe!

Now for the fill-ins, be sure to add your link at McGuffy’s Reader if you wrote a post with them. You can also answer in the comment section. Thanks to all who participate.

2. My favorite month is ________________.

3. My favourite commercial is                       , because                                .

4. Personally, I don’t care for                                     .

My answers:

1. My inner child is out all the time, I need to find my inner adult 🙂

2. My favorite month is October, I love the Fall, Halloween and cooler weather. Plus my Mom’s birthday and my wedding anniversary is that month too.

3. My favourite commercial is the Sheba Perfect Portions commercial where the man is with a woman, but the cat stares at him and he gets up to feed it. I am sure that could happen.

4. Personally, I don’t care for anyone that doesn’t like cats.




  1. Happy Gotcha Day, Phoebe! I hope you get to celebrate with lots of Party Mix and your Grammie! While we’re here, just wanted you to know that we’re taking the weekend off from the Showcase. I’m pretty sure our co-hosts are still hosting it – we just won’t have a post this time 🙂

  2. I loved your response to #1, Ellen!
    Happy Gotcha Day, Phoebe. By the way, I love your name. One of my way back great-grandmas was named Phoebe, too. 🙂
    Have a blessed weekend.

    1. Thank you, I really need to let me adult side out more often though 🙂 Phoebe thanks you 🙂 XO

  3. Happy gotcha day, Phoebe! My human doesn’t like people who don’t like cats either. I don’t mind them – I just figure they haven’t properly met a good cat yet.

  4. First of all…the really important stuff….Happy Gotcha Day Phoebe. May you have several more.

    Your fill-ins were so true especially the last one. If peeps don’t like me…I don’t like them.


  5. Congratulations on Phoebe’s Gotcha Day, and i love your answer about your inner child!

  6. Phoebe! We love you, too! We are so glad Mom gotcha’! XO
    Ha! Inner adult…I like that! My Inner Adult is a bit of a control freak with me. I need to shut her up sometimes, and let my Inner Child play.
    We both love October. Bill’s birthday is in October, too.
    That is a cute commercial. Critter commercials are always fun!
    There is an old Irish proverb, “Beware of people that don’t like cats.” Wise words!
    HUGS, dear friend.

    1. Phoebe thanks you and she loves you too! Yes, please let your inner child out to play -often. October is a great month and nice and cool. XO

  7. Sweet Phoebe, happy Gotcha day. It was a great day for your mommy!!! XX *smoochie*

    My mom will answer here if that is OK: 1. My inner child is always there. I still have a sense of wonder and delight and I still wake, look at myself in the mirror and wonder what happened?

    2. My favorite month is April. Its Spring, the weather is just warm enough to delight and the flowers are out.

    3. I love most of the Angie’s List commercials. They are funny! That tall guy one cracks me up.

    4. Personally, I don’t care for television programming at all. Not even the “usual”.

    1. Phoebe thanks you Katie and I thank your Mom for her great answers. I am glad she lets her inner child out a lot. Angie’s List commercials are funny 🙂 XO

  8. A very happy Gotcha day to you Phoebe. We are glad you have that great home where you live. We believe that people that don’t like cats have never been around any cats. Have a most wonderful day.

  9. I never mentioned this before, but another comment reminded me that our neighbors’ sweet rescue dog is named Phoebe. Happy Gotcha Day! And nice answers to the fill-ins. ~hugs~ Be well.

    1. Phoebe is a sweet name. Phoebe thanks you for the gotcha day wishes. Glad you liked my fill-ins. You can answer yours here if you want.

  10. Phoebe, happy Gotcha Day! You are so loved and we love you too.

    These are great answers. I’m sorry I didn’t fill in this week. My favorite month is October too and that is also the month of our wedding anniversary.

  12. Happy Gotcha Day Phoebe! YAY! I bet it doesn’t seem that long ago that you were lucky enough to find Miss Ellen and become part of the gang. We love following your adventures and no matter who else joins the household we know you’re in charge!

  14. Phoebe happy 14th Gotcha Day,
    MOm is a wee bit suspicious of folks who have met cats but say the don’t like cats…….AND REALLY SUSPICIOUS OF THOSE who never met one and have no intentions of meeting one. She says they could be labelled as having ‘control’ issues.
    hugs madi your bfff

  15. Happy 14th Gotcha Day Phoebe! Grady Lewis’ Gotcha Day is in March and his birthday (sorta) is next month August 13. He will be 14 too! I think the two of you should celebrate.
    Hugs and purrs,
    Angel Normie, Angel Mika, Sasha & Grady Lewis

  16. Happy Gotcha Day, Phoebe! Wow 14 years — time flies indeed.
    I love October, too, because of cooler weather 🙂
    I hope you have a wonderful day!!

  17. Phoebe, so sorry that you had a bit of a rough start in life, but you’ve obviously landed in the lap of luxury now! Happy Gotcha Day, Sweetheart! Hope your Grammie is coming over with treats.

  19. Hope you had a fabulous Happy Gotcha Day, Phoebe! Good answers! I don’t care for those who say they don’t like cats and/or dogs (or animals in general!). Something’s just not right there…. 😛

    1. Thank you 🙂 I agree, there is something very wrong with people that don’t like animals.

    I’m on board with October being a nice month. The summer heat is gone and it’s pleasant outside.

  22. Phoebe is such a cutie! I like you call it Got’cha Day! … I agree, that fall is the best time of year! I love to watch the leaves falling from the trees, and later how they crunch! Thanks for the questions! They are always fun to answer! 🙂

    1. Thank you 🙂 I can’t wait for Fall, I can’t stand the heat and humidity of the summer.

  24. Well, here I finally am, furry late…but ah well, that;s how it goes sometimes!

    Happy Gotcha Day to YOU, Phoebe!

    That code up above is the code for a card I helped petcretary make for you:)

    1. My inner child likes to be quite silly sometimes.

    2. My favorite month is May (and November comes in a close second.) Actually each month has a lot to enjoy…if only the bad weathers would not ruin them….

    3. My favourite commercial is Not sure , don’t have the TV on much…but there are some that use JRT’s in them I find those cute. .

    4. Personally, I don’t care for loud music, especially contemporary styles. And I agree that those who don’t like cats (or dogs) have not had exposure to the good ones like all of us here in bloggville, MOL! .

    1. Thank you for the beautiful card, your Mom is so sweet to make it. And thanks for these great answers. Being silly is fun. We agree that each month does have something good in it. Jack Russells are very good at learning tricks, I used to adore Eddie on Frasier. XO

  25. Happy Belated Gotcha Day, sweet Phoebe. We are sorry to be late. We hope you had a wonderful day sweetie. Hugs and nose kisses

  26. Happy Gotchaday gawjus. Here’s to many many more. We’re so glad you got gotted and dat we’re furiends. Big hugs

    Luv ya’

    Dezi and Raena
