My answers:

  1. Before you have breakfast, you need to feed the cats- at least in this house 🙂
  2. After dinner, I like to have something sweet and coffee.
  3. Winter was pretty mild this year despite the 10 inches of snow we had yesterday. A lot of times we had rain instead of snow.
  4. Spring is almost here, the daffodils are peeking out of the ground.

We are also joining Feline Friday, currently hosted by Comedy Plus.

  1. Great answers.

    After dinner, I just like to drink water because I drink way too much coffee during the day.

    We’re having a go with this as it looks fun 🙂

    1. I should drink more water after dinner too. I hope you will join us 🙂 XO

  2. If you feed the cats first before eating yourself, the chances are BETTER that you can ENJOY your own meal without anyone giving you “sad eyes” while you try eat!!! No signs of Spring here but we are SOOOOOOOOOOOOO ready! Happy Friday!

    Love, Pam and Teddy too

    1. Good point, but they eat fast so I usually have to give them a little butter. Brody, Joanie and Emmy like their butter. Spring is coming. XO and love to you both.

  3. KaTwo has taken snoozing to new heights of contentment from the looks of that picture! I can so believe #1 at your house… LOL! You have daffies… spring is on the way! Good Morning… fun Fill-ins this morning!

    1. Yes, she was very comfy. We would not get away with eating first 🙂 Glad you liked the fill-ins. XO

  4. #1 Yes! First thing in the morning, the cats gets fed in this house. I’ve got my priorities straight 🙂

    Fun answers!

  5. Those were good! Hey, our Dad feeds the outside kitties before we get our food, he says they’ve waited all night.

  6. Great answers to the fill-ins. All kitties here get breakfast before anyone else. And donkeys too. We have had some daffodils bloom already. You all have a fantastic day.

  7. Years ago, when we lived in SC, I purchased a bushel of assorted daffodils and planted them on a hill – loved seeing them in spring and miss them. It’s too hot for them here, but I’m very glad you have some to enjoy.

    1. Sorry it is too hot for them there, I bet you have a lot of other pretty flowers though.

  8. Our day starts the same, even with only two cats. ~grin~ I’ve been wondering, how did adorable KaTwo get his name? Why does it make me think of ‘Star Wars’? Heh… Be well!

    1. I named KaTwo after my beloved KaChoo, she looked similar so she was like version 2 🙂

  9. Ellen,

    I enjoy having a little something sweet after dinner, too. We don’t always have coffee, though. If we do, it’s decaf except on the weekends then it’s the real stuff. lol Our winter has been mild, but I’m ready for it to warm a bit after this cold snap. Thanks for hosting the Friday fun! Have a good weekend, my friend!

    1. Glad you like coffee too 🙂 I hope you have a wonderful weekend too.XO

  10. I used to have dessert and coffee after dinner long ago. Now I can’t eat anything it seems. Oh well. I think it has a lot to do with getting old.

    KaTwo is adorable sleeping on the back of the couch.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday. My best to your mom. ♥

    1. Sorry you can’t have dessert, I shouldn’t. I hope you have a nice weekend.

  11. Kitty breakfast comes first here too, although it is really just a few treats, they line up at the bedroom door waiting for me, and let me know if it’s time to get up! 🙂

    We like something sweet after dinner too, probably a bad habit but a fun one. LIfe is short, so there has to be a little indulgence. 🙂

    I’m glad your winter was mild, up until yesterday anyway. There has to be at least one major snowstorm to make it feel like winter. Let’s hope that was the last one so your daffodils don’t get cold! Trees are starting to blossom here… so are my allergies, but it’s worth it! 🙂

    KaTwo looks so relaxed and peaceful! Don’t you wish we could always sleep like that? Have a lovely weekend Ellen, think warm thoughts to melt away that snow! XO

    1. I am glad you feed your kitties first too. I do wish I could sleep as soundly as a cat 🙂 Have a great weekend! XO

  12. Those are great fill-ins this week! Breakfast works that way here, too. And even though some are getting snow, snow, and more snow next week, Spring is coming!

  13. Your #1 is 100% accurate here as well! I don’t eat a bite until the kitties (both my indoor babies and outdoor strays and ferals) have been fed and watered, and their litter boxes scooped as well. I was so excited to see daffodils in my yard over the weekend, too, but then they got buried in snow. Come on, Spring, you can do it!

  14. Cute photo of KaTwo snoozing! We have to feed the cats first, because if we don’t park Manny and Chili Bruce in their room, they will climb all over our plates and try to steal our meals! They’ll follow any plate with food on it, so we lead them into their room with their food bowls, and close the door behind!

    1. The coffee I make is weak compared to the kind you get a restaurants.

  15. #1: We are very well educated humans, that means furbabies come first. I am very glad to see we are not the only ones!
    #4: Daffodils really are a sign spring is near. I have to admit we cheat and have a bunch of them in a vase in our living room 😉

    1. That is a good idea to have some inside. We like to do that with forsythia.

  16. You got way more snow in one day that we have gotten all winter:( And we love snow.

    Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  17. We get fed before anything happens in the mornings here! Probably because we’ve already spent an hour trying to get Mommy up to feed us. Well, a certain white floofy kitty has. She’s very persistent!

  18. guyz….we all wayz thinked ewe getted like 10 feetz oh snow…..
    good thing ya dont huh !!! happee fryday two all ~~~ 🙂 ♥♥

  19. That’s an adorable shot of KaTwo! I used to give Bear his wet food treat first thing … then he woke me up earlier each morning until I gave up and started to give it to him around bedtime 🙂

  20. Totally agree with the first two – especially when it comes to our new boy, he’s very vocal if there’s not food in his bowl. I have a very sweet tooth so something sweet with my coffee is always a must.
    I love this time of the year when the daffodils start appearing and it’s just a waiting game to see the first bright splashes of yellow.
    Have a really lovely weekend Ellen.

    1. That is funny 🙂 I guess the noisy cat gets fed. I hope you have a great weekend too.

  21. It is the same for us on #1, and I’m the same as you on #2 except tea instead of coffee.

    KaTwo looks too cute!

  22. Coffee is the only elixir of life i know, and the cats are fed first, last, and always (Mikey pees on stuff if the bowls are not always full of dry kibble).

  23. I usually get lunch before TW has breakfast. She always has dessert after dinner. Our winter was horrid. Almost three weeks of below freezing temps after Christmas. Don’t even remind us.

  24. We have only one cat, and she’s usually fed before we eat. I can eat my meal guilt-free knowing she’s waiting.

  25. Oh, I would love to see some daffodils…even just peeking!
    Oh yes, around here, all of the animals eat before the humans!! 🙂

  26. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaw KaTwo looks so cute. And yes, kitties eat furst here too. As fur coffee, mommy could have that any time of day. MOL Big hugs

    Luv ya’

    Dezi and Raena

  27. Before you go anywhere you better take shower and tame your hair.
    After I get back home I better make sure no shenanigans have taken place.
    Winter is like a bad party guest that won’t leave.
    Spring seems as if it’s come and gone many times this winter.

    1. Thank you for these answers, I enjoyed them. I like how you described Winter 🙂

  28. Daffodils are one of my very favorite flowers. 🙂

    Kitties aren’t going to let you forget to feed them first, that’s for sure!

    KaTwo looks really happy and comfy there on the back of the couch.

    Thanks for co-hosting the fill-ins. Have a blessed weekend!
