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.

Nellie was very cooperative

I used my mom’s cell phone to take a selfie with this cool Easter Bunny at Michael’s. I wonder if anyone is going to buy it for  $275?  I am 5’10” so this is a big bunny.

We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.

 

Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and The Pet Parade. We are also joining Sabi Saturday, the new hop my Cactus Catz. You show something you have rescued from the trash or something you repurposed. To find out more, click here.

This is the other rabbit statue someone was giving away the same day I got the purple one.

For my art this week, I used Ipiccy to make a coloring page out of one of Emmy’s illustrations from her book. I plan to do a reading at the local library and want to have a coloring page to give to the kids.

And for The A-Z Blogging Challenge, today is the letter L. Have you heard of Lucy Pet’s Cat Incredible litter? I haven’t had a chance to try it yet, but when searching for an L, I found it and it sounds like good stuff. They have a coupon for $2 off on their website too. Click here.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for the last of our Catburry Bunny auditions.

The A-Z Blogging Challenge, we are up to the letter K. Kidney disease is sadly one of the main killers of kitties. I hope you never need this website, but if your cat is ever diagnosed with kidney disease, I highly recommend Tanya’s Comprehensive Guide to Feline Chronic Kidney Disease. It covers everything you need to know about kidney disease from diet, medicine and so much more. Click Here.

A-Z Blogging Challenge: J

Today is J day for the A-Z Blogging Challenge.J is for Jackson Galaxy. If your cat has any type of behavioral problem, I recommend Jackson’s advice. You can see videos on youtube or get his books from the library to save money. Most of you have probably seen his tv show, My Cat From Hell. He really speaks cat and understands why they do what they do.

We are also joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Trouble is thankful for her new toys. The secretary at my doctor’s office sent them for her when I went for my allergy shot the other day.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo prompt.

Hey you little brat!
Why don’t you go play with a cat?
Back away from my friend you little lass
or I am going to bite you in the *ss
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

A-Z Blogging Challenge: I

Hi everyone! Today is day I of the A-Z Blogging Challenge. I is for Insurance. If I only had one or two cats, I would buy them insurance, but I can’t afford it for my entire crew. There are several companies offering pet insurance now  and they all have their pros and cons. Here are two links to websites that break them down. Consumeradvocate  and Top10Pet Insurance

You have seen Trouble in “stuff” and “things”, she also gets into “odds and ends”.

A-Z Blogging Challenge-H

Hi everyone! Please don’t tell Penny that today is supposed to be her day to post.  Today we are focusing on the letter H in the A-Z Blogging Challenge. To see more blogs participating in the A-Z hop, click here.

Today is more of a warning than a money saving tip. Most of you buy your flea and tick products from the veterinarian which is much safer.This is one area, I don’t recommend cutting costs Some still buy products over the counter at places like Walmart. One of the big brands is Hartz, and I am warning you to not buy those products. I have read many horror stories about cats getting burns and even dying after these products were applied. Here is a reputable link for you to read more about it.Click here

Trouble wanted to try a different hat/ears. We are joining Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

We also want to wish our friend Marg of Marg’s Animals a very Happy Birthday!!!

A-Z Blogging Challenge-G

Hi everyone! Today is already G day for The A-Z Blogging Challenge. My money-saving tip for today is Groupon. It is free to sign up, you just need an email and a password. You can find discounts on everything , but right now I am focusing on cat things. I typed the word cat in the search engine and 7 pages of groupons appeared.

There was a foldable pet stroller for $47. 99 click here There was also a soft-sided airline approved carrier for only $19.99 click here

Brody hopes he is Awww. worthy for  Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays

 

Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and The Pet Parade. We are also joining Sabi Saturday, the new hop my Cactus Catz. You show something you have rescued from the trash or something you repurposed. To find out more, click here.

For my art this week, I have some masterpieces The Great One and I made this week with more paint chips 🙂

And for my Sabi Saturday is a bunny statue that I got for free. Someone had a bunch of things out in their yard marked free and this bunny was one of them. He has a small chip on his ear on the other side, but when sitting like this, he is perfect.

Next week, I will how you the other one that I got the same day.

And for The A-Z Blogging Challenge, we are on the letter F. F is for fluids, i realize most of you don’t need these for your cats, but many cats have kidney disease and do require subcutaneous fluids to be given at home. We did this for Spooky and Phoebe. I  follow Frugalwoods blog and recently there was a post with cost saving tips for pets and someone wrote they get the fluids from a regular pharmacy like CVS instead of through the vet. I have done this with pills, but never fluids- apparently it is a lot cheaper, $2 versus $30 from the vet.  Here is a link to the article. Click here.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for more Catburry Bunny auditions.
