Selfie Sunday with Phoebe

Hi everyone! I am having a great week. I got to see Grammie on Friday and look what she brought me us. I love her so very, very much.


Mom has gone crazy again and chopped up 7 more books. Plus she has been chasing us around the house to get photos of our Halloween costumes. I must say that I did a great job with mine- they will all be on display tomorrow. Look at all this nip Mom is drying and she has it in the dining room which is off-limits to us- phooey!


“The Great One” is going to be one on Tuesday. She has really cut into my Grammie time, but I feel bad for her because my Mom sings Soft Kitty to her all the time. And you know how bad my Mom sings. So I got her a birthday gift, a soft kitty with Penny’s voice singing ( not our Penny, the one from Big Bang Theory).


I decided to have a giveaway for The Day of the Dead even though we don’t celebrate it. We celebrate All Soul’s Day and All Saints Day, but they all recognize our departed loved ones.

100_9786  There is a catnip mat, a catnip ghost, a magnet and a button skull Mom made. Just comment on this post to be entered in the giveaway- I will announce the winner on Tuesday.

Pumpkin Book Art

Hi everyone! Grammie wants to thank everyone for the purrfect birthday wishes yesterday, she read them all and they made her very happy.

For Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and for the #JHC, ( decoration is today’s word), I want to show you the pumpkin books I finally finished.

100_9730-1 100_9728-1I had been stressing about Joanie’s ear so I went a little crazy and made 10. I actually made 11, but I tried to dip one in diluted paint instead of spray painting and it did not go well. They were very easy to make, I found this video to have the best directions as well as a link to templates to use to cut out the books.

I used some larger paperbacks and some small ones. To decorate the smaller ones, I used a branch for the stem, on the larger ones, I painted it green on the book. I am hoping to make more this weekend. I have an old Grey’s Anatomy book I would like to make one for my Doctor with. I think it would be fun to match books with people’s interests to make them special.

Caturday Art

100_9749 Sammy got this cool neckerchief in the mail yesterday from Cat Scouts for participating in a Quest. He is very proud, it was his first quest.

Hangry Phoebe

Hi everyone! Do you get mean when you are hungry? Mom says I get Hangry and beat up poor Prancie, I say she is hangry too-what do you think?

Notice the baseball game on in the background. Dad watches that a lot, I feel bad for Tommy John, it seems like he is always having surgery.

I got to see my Grammie on Wednesday. I love her so very much. I will see her again on Saturday too.

For Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter J, I have written a poem about Joanie
Joanie is a cat
she is a brat
Sure she is sweet
and very neat
but with food
she is quite rude
if you have a snack
she will give you a smack


I am also joining P.S. Annie’s Throwback Thursday Blog Hop and I want to wish her a Happy Birthday too! throwback

This photo was taken in 2008, sadly I am the only one left of the bunch in this photo. My sisters, KaChoo, Lucy and Stinky have all abandoned me.

Mom asked me to give you the fill-ins for tomorrow, I think she should pay me in treats for doing that. Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

1. When I run out of ___________________, I use ___________________ instead.
2. My guru is _______________.

3. I am afraid of                            .

4. I feel empowered                                 .

Read Me a Story

Hi everyone! June 13th was Read Me a Story Day hosted by Piglove and Gentlestitches. My hubby reads to Prancie, she only likes one book about a spider. Here is a video of their reading session, she was a little antsy because it was dinner time.



We were very sad to see some losses in the Blogosphere. Daddy Cat from Jacqueline’s Cat House had  gone to The Bridge. I pray that Mommy Cat will be OK as I am sure she is heartbroken along with his family. Daddy-Cat-Forever

And I am sure you all know that wise and handsome Merlin has also left this world at the age of 21. His Mom is starting a Kickstarter campaign for a book that is going to help bring awareness to the often overlooked black cats. I am pledging my support in memory of Merlin and my beloved Spooky.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 5

Hi everyone! Time for Friendly Fill-Ins Week 5 for tomorrow. I came up with the first 2

and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2. And remember, if you don’t have a blog, feel free to answer in the comment section.

1. I used to love to eat _____________________, but now it  repulses me.

2. I would never eat _______________________, but now I love it.
3. I always cry                     .
4.                           always makes me laugh.
Here are my answers:
1. I used to love to eat canned corned beef hash, but now it repulses me.
2. I would never eat  Polish Borscht ( not the beet kind), this is a broth made with the juice of fermented oats. You add boiled eggs, mashed potatoes, mushrooms, kielbasa and horseradish to it. My hubby makes it for Easter and Christmas, but now I love it.
3. I always cry at weddings during the father/daughter dance. Especially when they dance to I Loved Her First. I was blessed that my Dad was still alive when I got married and despite us both being shy we managed to dance to Daddy’s Little Girl. This song came out later:
 4. The Trout Talkin Tabbies post every Thursday always makes me laugh.

Tummy Tuesday

Hi everyone! Mom finished my crowns, she made me 2 and I don’t like them! What part of bling don’t you understand Mom?

DSCF1530DSCF1524 (2)

I know I look great, but I want more BLING! These are just unacceptable. AND the worst part-she made Brody one! He is a mere serf in my kingdom and he gets a crown!
DSCF1531 (2)  And the little monster looks good in it. As you can see, he is pretty calm now. He goes over to Mom several times a day for pets and scritches. Here is a video with him purring ( sorry for the other odd noise, Mom’s cheap camera always has that sound). He gets a little excited a smacks her, but she deserves it for not doing my crowns as I specified.

I am going to see Grammie today. I love her so very much! And being that the title of this is Tummy Tuesday, Joanie agreed to show her tummy.


And special thanks to Jamie Swimm of DiverseDesigning.com for designing the badge. The shades will be heading out at the end of the week:

Phoebe's Traveling Shades

Selfie Sunday with Phoebe

Hi everyone! You know how my grass wasn’t growing fast enough? Well, my Mom felt bad for me so she went to Petco and bought me some tall wheat grass. Then Dad put it in a bigger planter for me:

DSCF1344 (2)My selfie

I got to see my Grammie on Saturday. I love her so very much. I am very worried about my purrince though. He has been naughty and his Mum doesn’t feel very well. There is talk of him going back to “the farm”. I am praying he won’t have to do that. My Mom said he could live with us if he needs a home, but his Mum would have to agree and we would need help getting him because she doesn’t have a passport. Please send good thoughts his way, he doesn’t mean to be naughty, but he is a young boy and has lots of energy to burn off.

And now I am going to get a little revenge on Mom for all those photo shoots and for the future ones with those hats she is planning to make. Mom has been is some indie movies, and in one she is particularly bad and now you can rent it through youtube:

Some interesting facts about this movie:

Many parts of it were filmed on our property and some in our house.

Our dog was in it ( Katie, she went to The Bridge in 2011)

The guy that plays Mom’s son in the film, is the very talented Jamie Swimm who designed our logo and the Friendly Fill-In badge. He is also a cat lover.

This movie filmed in 2009.

Phoebe’s Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I finally got to see my Grammie and she brought me us a big container of treats. I lover her so very, very much. DSCF1330

Miss Piggy Joanie had to dig right in. I am very thankful for my Grammie so I am joining PepiSmartDog’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.PepiSmartDog.com, pet centric

The strangest thing happened to me Monday night. I had been in a deep sleep then I woke up all warm and toasty. I thought, wow, Snowball’s lion cut is growing out fast. Then I realized it wasn’t Snowball, it was the feral beast Brody. He was keeping me warm so I let him stay. Being that I am the boss, everyone else saw that and figured he is OK to stay. Mom used to shut him in the upstairs bathroom, but now it has been 4 nights and no problems so I guess he is OK as long as he remembers that I am the boss around here.

Flat Cat Scout Mango is still visiting, she wanted Sammy to teach her how to eat corn on the cob so Mom finally got some.

Mom asked me to post the fill-ins for tomorrow’s Friendly Fill-Ins Blog Hop, she came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

1.Everyone should read _________________________.

2. My first ________________________ was a _____________________.

3. My favourite time of the day is ____________________,because___________________

4. I think dreams ______________________________.


We hope you will join our hop tomorrow. And if you don’t have a blog, please put your answers in the comment section.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

Hi everyone! We are joining 2 hops today plus I have some great deals to tell you about.

First off, we are joining Comedy Plus for Awww…Mondays.

DSCF1302 (2) Another Brody sighting. He is really starting to catch on, he doesn’t run as fast through the room- I think that was startling everyone. Plus he investigates things, last night he climbed Phoebe’s pole and was walking along the curtain rod. I tried to get a photo, but he got down too quickly. He was watching Joanie sit on my lap so maybe someday he will realize that can be fun.

And for The Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? I am reading Love The House You’re In by Page Rien. I was getting depressed watching Flip or Flop, knowing I could never make such big changes to my home, this book made me appreciate what I have and find ways to make our home reflect all we love. Being that it is filled with cats, I have that part covered.  badge

Now for those deals. I know many of you were interested in the book, Yarned and Dangerous by Sadie Hartwell. She commented yesterday to let us know the Kindle is version is on sale for $2.99. Here is the link.

And for those of you that want some high quality nip ( blends contain silvervine and valerian) from Cat-A-Bliss on Etsy, you can get 10% off for the rest of the month by using the code: 15ANDMEOWING

Phoebe couldn’t get into our latest delivery fast enough ( she may have a nip problem)
