I am having technical difficulties, please add your link on McGuffy’s Reader, that linky is working. Thank you!


  1. Good answers! I have memories going back to age 2. My ability to remember (just about) everything is a blessing and a curse. I hope we can get the linky going! I am new at this side of the meme!

    I love Jinx! What a cutie.

    1. The linky is working on my blog. I think it needs to be added through HTML code here. I am not familiar with Word Press. Ask our friend how she does it.
      Hugs, dear friend!

    2. You are lucky to remember so far back,, but yes, it could be a curse too. Glad you like Jinx, he is hard to get photos of so he isn’t on here much.

    I haven’t ___eaten___________________ in ___FOUR hours___(yeah like that’s possible)._____________________________

    1. Don’t stop blogging!!! I agree cats are better than anything else. I hope you are kidding on the last one πŸ™‚

  3. Does the linky start a blog adding? cause it not on your post… so weze confused. The mom put the linky tools code you gots, but didn’t works.

    1. Thank you for participating πŸ™‚ I am glad you found your Mom. You are so sweet to want to be mommy to a baby bunny. Kitty lived a long life with FIV, it is not a death sentence as so many thing it is.

    1. I am very bad with technical stuff, it as all set now πŸ™‚ Sorry for the delay.

  5. Before I go off to fill-in my fill-in’s just a note that WordPress (which is where 15andMeowing is based) does not support linkies. Bummer, right? You have to copy and paste link to and from a WordPress blog. Now – I’ll be back shortly to link my fill-in!!

      1. Great answers πŸ™‚ Thank you for posting them, are all you kitties going to take turns? Maybe your Mom will answer sometimes too πŸ™‚

    1. I have wordpress, but GoDaddy is my host so they helped me, it is all set now πŸ™‚ Thank you for participating.

  6. Cool new hop idea! Rather than trying to do the link thingie I’ll just fill in my blanks here!!

    β€’I want to stop getting older and start all over again!
    β€’I haven’t let my Mom sleep in the morning past 2:30AM in WEEKS.
    *I believe I love bacon more than anything except my Mom.
    β€’My earliest memory is when Mom and Dad adopted me and took me home.

    Happy Friday!
    Hugs, Sammy

    1. Great answers Sammy, although I feel bad for your Mom having to get up so early. XO

  7. Thanks to you and Ann for hosting this. Looks like fun! I love your answers and I agree with you – everything does happen for a reason, even if we aren’t quite sure what that reason is.

    Have a great weekend!

    1. Thank you for participating, I enjoyed your answers too. I hope you have a great weekend too!

  8. I really love this fill-in challenge and look forward to continuing with it! I think any challenges that allow us all to get to now each other better are great. Also, your fill-ins are great, and so is the blooper! Purrs!

    1. Thank you for joining us, I enjoyed your answers and look forward to more each week.

  9. I’m going to join next week. I’m not very creative and wasn’t completely sure what to expect. I like your answers. I need to stop eating junk too!

    Jinx is such a cutie!

    1. Thank you, any answers are good, long or short, from you or the kitties πŸ™‚ Jinx doesn’t like to be photographed, he always goes away from the camera unless distracted with a toy.

  10. Looks like fun

    I want to stop _working_________ and start __retiring__________________
    I haven’t ___eaten a good eclair __ in ___way too long______
    I believe _in magic and angels____________________
    My earliest memory is ____of getting to big to walk under the table. Bumped my head

    It is fun!1

  11. Ellen, I am sorry you didn’t get the link to work. I will go over to Linky tools and let you know each step I follow. The only difference should be that you are just doing a list and no photo. Glad it worked for Annie.

  12. OK Dad now me

    I want to stop ___nothing_________ and start __keeping on keeping on______
    I haven’t __had fancy feast__ in __so long it hurts, you listening?_______
    I believe _I am the handsomest Marmalade Tabby… EVER_______________
    My earliest memory is seeing Dad look at me hiding under the chair at the foster home and saying “There he is He is a cutie and I will take him home”__

    1. Awww….I love your earliest memory and I hope your Dad is taking note on the Fancy feast. Thanks for your answers :)And you are quite handsome.

  13. Congrats on your new blog hop, this is going to be fun! πŸ™‚ Your #1 is tied in with mine, this is another issue I procrastinate on doing! #2 – I think Tutoring would be rewarding. People’s faces light up when they begin to feel progress! #3 – I agree with you that everything happens for a reason, we don’t have to understand right now, we just have to accept that and deal with it the best we can! #4 – That sounds like a rough start to school years, one teacher can make all the difference good or bad. I loved school but in Kindergarten I was terrified of a big barking dog I had to walk by every day. Ahh yes, being a lefty made things harder too. I’m glad your Mom understood and got you a button up coat! <3

    1. Thank you for participating. I enjoyed your answers too. Tutoring was rewarding, I liked the students, but many teachers didn’t get the work ready on time for me to do with the students which was a pain. Most I had were either pregnant or out for bad behavior so the teachers weren’t thrilled with the fact that they got a tutor.

  14. Dat’s really great. Luv da fotos. Mommy says she can member back to a little befur 2 yrs. old. We’s still sendin’ purrayers fur all specially Sammy.

    Luv ya’


    1. Thank you for the prayers for Sammy, he is feeling better. I wish I could remember back that far.

  15. Great series of photos! I often get a similar series with Samantha…sitting still, getting up to move while I’m trying to take a picture….and then – gone – or at least half gone out of the shot! πŸ™‚

    1. Black cats are tough to photograph, especially if they turn their heads or close their eyes πŸ™‚

  16. These fill ins look so much like fun. Phoebe, you like those fill ins? You are the spokescat. xoxox

  17. We are just going to ‘fill in’ here.

    I want to stop having to constantly feed Minko with a spoon and start being able to watch him eat all by himself…you bet I do!
    I haven’t been to Europe in over eight years…I so ant to go back to visit my relatives.
    I believe in miracles…my being alive is just one of them:) (I am a stage 3b cancer survivor)
    My earliest memory is from when I was 4 years old and I was letting a young friend ride my trike on the premise that I got to ride on the back of it…and he went over a bump and I had to go to the ER to get stitches…I still even remember the white tiles and stainless table in there…and…I was eating a carrot…and I remember that when I got home it was still in my hand:) I got several stitches in my chin…and the scar is there to prove it! OMC!

    1. Thank you for your answers. I am so glad that you are a survivor. I am sure you wish you didn’t have to feed Minko with a spoon, but be happy that he at least eats that way. XO

  18. Okay, so we just got a new computer and I’m having enough trouble just trying to do OUR post!
    I hope it’s ok if we join in next week, we should have it figured out by then…maybe.
    Have a great weekend…

  19. O.k. Our Mama is going to answer the fill-ins today.
    1.I want to stop eating so much sugar, and start eating more vegetables! I don’t really eat vegetables often enough πŸ™
    2.I haven’t read a book in over three months since Wilhelmina has joined our family!
    3. I believe that the world needs more compassion, kindness and love.
    4. My earliest memory was when I was younger than two and still in diapers. I was sitting on the road picking some gum off the street. My mother couldn’t find me anywhere and came running out of the house and was visibly upset that I was on the street.She scooped me up and fished the gum out of my mouth. She was really upset and was hugging me and I remember wondering why I had scared her so much.

    Fun fill-ins. And you are right, it is a good way to get to know people. I enjoyed reading your answers πŸ™‚

    the critters in the cottage xo

    1. I definitely agree with #3. You have a great memory to remember back that far, I wish I could.
