Penny’s Tips Volume 69

Hi everyone! As you can see, I scored a turn on Dad’s lap. You need to take a number to do that. Jinx spends a lot of time on there, but when he goes for a bite to eat, I take a turn. Jinx thanks you all for those sweet birthday wishes yesterday. He also wants to give a shout out to Grammie for getting him a big bag of Temptations that he is going to share with just me.

Are your humans still home all the time? Here are so more ideas to get them out of your furs so you can get your 20 hours of sleep.

You know those popular paint and sip classes, my mom went to 2 of them many years ago, she only sipped water though. You can see one of those masterpieces here.

Now that everyone is stuck at home, why not follow a youtube video and make one for free ( you will need a canvas, paint and a brush). Maybe a smock too.

I found some cat ones, to view them, click here and here. 

Maybe you can convince your human to make something for you like a cool vintage camper out of a cardboard box. My mean mom won’t make me one- geez, you pee in one 20  box(es) and they never forget. Here is a link to the directions to make that from Click here. 


And before we go, we want to say a prayer for our friend, Zoe , Brian’s sister who is not feeling well. To visit, click here. 


We are joining Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.



  1. Good tips, Penny! Painting is always a relaxing thing to do and will certainly keep the humans occupied! We sent some purrs to Zoe, we are hoping for the best. XO

  2. Nice art/painting work!

    Those creations for kitties looked like fun, too.

    Poor little Zoe, we delivered some POTP and purrs to her .

  3. Great to see you score some laptime, Penny😸What a lovely idea, but we have to admit that we like more to see how it’s done, for this moment, than to paint it ourselves. Pawkisses for a Happy Tuesday to all of you🐾😽💞

  4. My human looked at that camper and started laughing hysterically! There is no way anything she did would turn out looking that nice.

  5. Thanks for all the tips, our Humanmom just tries out a lot (without consulting us) and you know what that means 😉😂
    Our prayers for Zoe 💖

  6. Penny, Mom is going straight over to see what you have here for us to see. After reading Sumer’s comment..we are headed for the camper first. Yeah, you’re right about humans and peeing. They never forget! You’d think it was the end of the world or something!

  7. YAY for scoring some Dad-lap time Penny. You can sure tell where the best seat in the house is by how many cat hairs you find on that lap! Mom kind of wishes I was a lap cat but at my weight – I’m afraid I’d crush her! HAHA Glad Jinx had a good birthday AND we too are sending lots of prayers and POTP to Zoe.

    Love, Teddy

  8. Those are some great suggestions. We also send good thoughts to Zoe.

  9. Good Morning, Penny! So happy Jinx had a wonderful birthday. And HooRay for Grammie with the treats! I love to paint and I think you came up with a fantastical idea! Penny, you have a 5 star tips day!

  10. Penny, wonderful suggestions!
    All of the Eastside Cats get plenty of sleep, but not so much the humans…who have cats jump on them several times a night!

    1. Thank you 🙂 Same here. I can’t sleep without them or with them.

  11. I’m glad you had a great birthday, Jinx. I figured you would.

    Great tips. We’ve been home for years and years. Okay that’s what it feels like. I’m getting my nails done today. So excited about that and we’re going on a cruise this coming weekend. Going to a marina that has a restaurant open. We’re so ready.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. My best to all your siblings and your wonderful mom. ♥

  12. We have to take a number for mom’s lap here too. We like your ideas for keeping the humans busy. They’re home a lot lately!

  13. Glad you got a turn on your Dad’s lap. We visited Zoe and the rest of them. I’m sure Jinx will be happy to share her treats. Well maybe it will be reluctantly MOL, LOL.

  14. Pawesome tips!! Maybe I can get Mama to build me on of those campers with the bazillion boxes hers keeps getting in da mail 😉

    Matilda (& Matt)

  15. Your mom did a nice job on that painting! Thank you for these tips to help your fellow pets. ~grin~ Best wishes to poor Zoey and her family.

  19. Our mom knows how to sip pretty well, but painting… that’s another thing! MOL She wants to give it a try because is sounds like fun!

  20. That is very good of Jinx to share his Temptations with you.

  21. My cats would love the idea of a camper made of boxes, i’ll have to try it once i get back home. Thanks, Penny!

  22. Penny, you have the best ideas for keeping the humans busy! I really like the idea of making a camper out of a box for the kitties. It’s a good thing we order things online all the time and so always have plenty of boxes. Purrs!

  23. Great tips! I’ve actually followed along on some YouTube painting videos. Lots of fun. And I either drank coffee or tea xo
