About pilch92

I'm a happily married 44 year old woman. My hubby ( David) and I have been married for 21 years (October 24, 1992). We started out with one cat and now have 15. 15 is my magic number ( David may like a slightly smaller one), but when any pass away, I don't replace the one that is lost, but I do rescue another. When we got married we were like most people and wanted a family. At some point we both decided that we love our fur family. Some people are made to be parents of 2-legged children and we are made to be parents of those with 4 legs ( although we did have one with 3 legs once-RIP Brina). It has taken me years to realize that this is my calling. I want to help all cats any way I can. If I can write about something that happened to one of my cats and help another in the process then I will be happy.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

I am thankful Millie and Prancie made it to 2020. Here is Millie snoozing with his collection of stuffies. About 12 years ago, my niece was getting rid of a bunch of stuffed animals and Millie managed to pull the little white dog and her 2 puppies out of the bag so she let him keep them. They have all been his “babies” since then.

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

Wait til the girl next door sees me
riding my bike wild and free.
I just know someday we will wed
just don’t tell her I sometimes wet the bed.
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.
1. My plans for the weekend include ___________________________.
 

2. You will never find ______________________ in my home.

3. I hope I always _________.
4. I hope I never _________.

 

Happy New Year!

Sammy may have had a little too much catnip New Year’s Eve.

Wishing you all a new year filled with good health, happiness and everything you desire.

Penny’s Tips Volume 58

Hi everyone! I have my best tip yet for you today. I actually didn’t come up with this one, but I am happy to spread the word.

PennyFix is a petition started in the USA.  The idea is that every can of cat food would cost one little cent extra and all that money would go to spay/neuter programs. I think everyone can afford that extra penny and it will do so much good. To read more about it and/or to sign the petition, click here.

And here is my special New Year’s Eve gown. Mom got it on clearance at Petsmart for $3.75. One can still look gorgeous on a budget.

The top is black velvet and the skirt is white with sequins and a gold bow.This is a small and it fits perfectly.

Awww….Mondays

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays That is all we are joining this week because I have a cold and I am all tired out from the Christmas festivities.

As many of you know, Prancie appeared at our outdoor nativity in January 2005. It used to be on the other side of the house at a door we rarely use. This year, we put it by the main entrance to our house. Knowing it was going to be Prancie’s last Christmas, my hubby wanted a photo of her out there. She wanted no part of it and made for the house as quickly as possible, but I got one decent shot.

If you are not familiar with her book, you can click here to see it on Amazon.

Penny will be here with an important tip tomorrow. Plus she will be modeling her New Year’s Eve gown.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

I am thankful Millie and Prancie are both still with us and got to enjoy Christmas.

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

A sleigh ride, just you and me
is a romantic way to spend the day
As long as they didn’t have Beefaroni
before pulling the sleigh.
( fans of Seinfeld will appreciate the poem)
