1. An Easter ( or Passover) memory that  I have is ________________________.
 

2. I hope to purchase ________________ this year.

 
3. When the days are warm, I _________.

4. If the Easter Bunny visited my house, _________.

My answers:

1. An Easter memory that I have is the priest coming to my grandparents’ house to bless the Easter food when I was very young. Now we have to bring the food to the church hall to get it blessed which we do every year. It is a beautiful tradition.

2. I hope to purchase a sleepypod this year to use for bringing my cats to the vet.

3.When the days are warm, I open the windows to let in some fresh air and give the kitties window whiffies.

4. If the Easter Bunny visited my house, he would think another Easter Bunny had already been here. I am stockpiled for Easter with bags of Dove chocolate and white chocolate m&m’s.

We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus. We are also joining FiveSibes Flashback Friday.
We want to wish all our Jewish friends a Happy Passover. Here are some Passover photos of Angel Phoebe
The A-Z Blogging Challenge, we are up to the letter Q. Q is for questions. Always question why the vet is recommending vaccines and treatments. For example, a cat doesn’t need a FELV vaccine if he/she is indoor only and doesn’t live with a FELV positive cat. Some places just want to make money.

Wordless Wednesday

Hi everyone! Today is day O of the A-Z Blogging Challenge. O is for odors and when you live with a lot of cats, sometimes, there are odors. I won’t use scented litters because the smell bothers me and I certainly don’t want the cats to have to lick that stuff off their paws. I just add some baking soda to the litter box. It works, it is safe and it is cheap.

Sometimes one of them pees in a bad spot. Usually Sammy when he is mad at me and sometimes it is when a cat has a bladder infection. I have found washing items with color safe bleach gets the odor right out.

I like how Prancie’s tail is sticking out from under Brody.

Emmy’s Book is Ready!

Hi everyone! Today we are joining It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? The kiddy lit version hosted by Teacher Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers.

I apologize if you are sick of hearing about Emmy’s book. Here is the synopsis: It is about a homeless kitty excited to find a
family, but must first convince them she is not a
skunk. It is loosely based on how the author’s cat,
Emmy came to live with her. ( ages 3-8).

I wish I could afford to give everyone a paperback version, but that is not possible. I have already been in contact with some of you to do reviews and I appreciate your help. I did make a Kindle version and it is available for free from Tuesday-Saturday this week. If anyone has time, I would be very grateful if you could do a review on Amazon, Barnes and Noble or Goodreads.

I have some copies available for sale for $10 which includes shipping in the USA. If you want to purchase one please let me know in the comments and I will contact you. I will be having a giveaway on here soon and one on Goodreads too. Emmy and I thank you for your support.

We are also joining Comedy Plus’ Awww..Mondays. We hope I Am Not a Skunk will make you say awww….

And we are on the letter M for The A-Z Blogging Challenge. M is for military discount. If you or your spouse is or was in the military, you should ask if your vet clinic offers a military discount. You deserve it 🙂

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.

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.

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!!!
