Friendly Fill-Ins Week 128

Hi everyone! Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins. Please leave your link (at bottom of post) here or at my co-host’s Four-Legged Furballs. You can also answer in the comment section. Thank you to all who participate.

1. _______________________ is an awful _______________________.
2.  I always read __________________________ sections of the newspaper.
3. Black cats _________.

4. _________ is my favorite treat.
My answers:
1. A Day No Pigs Would Die is an awful piggy snuff novel. I didn’t have to read this in school, but when I was a tutor, some kids had to read it and it is just awful.
2. I always read the obituaries and comic sections of the newspaper. I check my horoscope too. πŸ™‚
3. Black Cats are beautiful and sweet just like all other cats.
4. Dove milk chocolate is my favorite treat.
We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.
Joanie has been testing lots of costumes. Starting Sunday, we will have 3 days of costumes with a movie theme. We will tell you the year the movie came out as a hint. Then on Halloween , we will announce the winner of who got the most correct. I hope I can get all the cats to participate.

  1. Ms. Ellen, do you share your chocolate with your cats? I ask because I’ve heard a lot of humans rave about chocolate, but haven’t had a taste… either they’re being greedy because it’s wonderful OR purrhaps they’re being honest that it isn’t good for us kitties.

  2. That sounds like a fun guessing game. Maybe I can talk Tiglet and the Soot Sprites, or maybe even Martha, into making a guess. πŸ™‚

    I always read the obituaries, too, but I neglected to mention that in my post. That is actually the part I head to first, then I look at the puzzles, etc.

    I agree about black cats. They are precious babies. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the fun fill-ins. Have a blessed weekend!

    1. Thank you. I am glad you rescued some black cats too. I hope you have a blessed weekend too. XO

  3. 1. Hurricanes and other natural disasters are such awful and scary things.
    2. I always read the pet advertisements, and the local shelter’s spotlighted fur of the week, and the obits too…and in the paper from Canada, I always check and news from there, to keep up in the newspaper.
    3. Black cats are adorable house panthers…if I was not having allergies to ‘regular’ kitties, maybe I would not have had 6 meezers over the years:)
    4. Well, of course ice cream is my favorite treat. And not the diet kinds either, MOL! Howevfur it doens’t come into the house anymore, just the kind that petcretary makes herself…think avocado mousse, and coconut milk…um…well, actually they’re not that bad!

    1. Thank you for all these great fill-in answers. I am glad you read the paper too, I fear someday everything will be electronic. I admire you for avoiding ice cream. XO

  4. So Joanie is the official Halloween “model” for costumes? Nice you have someone who will COOPERATE! Love your fill-in answers. Thankfully we’ve never read that pig book and it sounds like something we really shouldn’t pick for our “to read” list anyway. Happy Friday!

    Hugs, Teddy

  5. We really like everyone saying they like black cats. They are the very best. Joanie, you make such a good model for the Halloween costumes. You all have a great day.

    1. Joanie thanks you. I am glad lots of people love black cats πŸ™‚ We hope you had a great day too. XO

  6. Love your Fill-ins. I see we both went for sweets on #4. I’ve never read that book and I never will. Never even heard of that book.

    I’ll be enjoying your three days of Halloween dress up/movie themes. Should be fun.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday. My best to your mom. β™₯

  7. Oooh I like piggies, what is the book about?

    I forgot about the horoscope section. I like to read my horoscope at the end of the day to see if it fits with what has happened.

  8. Ohhhhhh Joanie looks so smart in her costume. It sounds like a really fun game and we’ll have to come guess too

    We are getting our very first black kitty sister on Monday! We’ve never ever had one before.

  9. Your fill-ins are fantastic, as always! I have never read A Day No Pigs Would Die, and I’m now certain I never will. When I was in school, the book that traumatized me the most was Where the Red Fern Grows. I know it overall tells a beautiful story, but I’m not someone who enjoys reading sad stories, and that was just way too sad for 11-year-old me. Now, needless to say, I cannot wait for all of the fun Halloween costumes! Joanie is such a purrfect model. Purrs!

  10. Mom reads the obits too, but her favorite part of the paper is all the different puzzles she can work on during the day”)

    Have a nice weekend.

  11. I agree about the black cats! They are very beautiful. And no different than any other cat. I also really like Dove chocolate, which reminds me that I haven’t had it in a long time. I should pick some up!

  12. I am so glad how many people commenting here like black cats.
    Chocolate always is so soothing…
    Looking forward to Joanie presenting her costumes, this will be fun.

  13. Dove chocolate is very good! Black cats are indeed wonderful. I like to go to the puzzles and the funnies in the newspaper.

    Great idea about the costumes and the kitties! Joanie looks adorable.

  14. Who! Not so cool book. Gramps used to read the obits every day to see if he was in them. HAH! He wanted to know if he had to get dressed. #3 rocks. Pop likes Dove. TW wants Godiva but only sees them Feb 14.

    1. Thank you. I say that about the obits too πŸ™‚ I guess we are morbid. I will eat most any chocolate, but I do like Dove. XO

  15. I’m not much for papers – but my choices are usually the comics and the puzzles. Everyone can use a bit of a challenge and a laugh every day. This past week, we watched the USS Indianapolis movie and Momma couldn’t help but think of Nic Cage’s #1 fan! ps – good movie!

  16. The costume contest sounds like fun. Joanie is such a good girl β™₯ Dove milk chocolate works for me!
    1. An anchovy is an awful addition to a pizza!
    2. I don’t read the newspaper… *blush*
    3. Black cats are gorgeous but hard to photograph.
    4. A cake donut is my favorite treat.

    1. Great answers πŸ™‚ I agree anchovy is a bad addition to anything actually. Black cats are hard to photograph which is why mine are not on the blog as much as others. I love blueberry cake donuts from Dunkin. XO

  17. We got the same black and red cape you guys did. It was not nearly as bad an experience as most of the costumes we tried. You look really awesome in it! Wondering why we have to retype our name whenever we comment…

  18. Mommy’s never had cove chocolate. She luvs peppermint saltwater taffy and milky way dark bars. She also luvs chocolate baklava. Big hugs

    Luv ya’
