Friendly Fill-Ins Week 129

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. One can _____________.
2. Given the choice of _______________ or _______________,  I would pick _________________.
3. _________ makes me feel _________.
4. I never go a day without _________.
My answers:
1. One can accomplish almost anything with effort and persistence.
2. Given the choice of meeting Nicolas Cage or a million dollars, I would pick the money. Sorry Nic, but I could help so many cats with that kind of money.
3. The sound of a cat’s purr makes me feel calm.
4. I never go a day without coffee, kitty cuddles and talking to my mom. I talk to my hubby daily too, but that is a given πŸ™‚
Sammy thought it would be fun to bat hunt.I have two of these on top of the entertainment center. This morning, one was in the hall as a “gift” for me- or maybe it was Emmy’s ( she is the only on that leaves me gifts) way of telling me Halloween is over, take the decorations down.
We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.

  1. Effort and persistence will take you far, won’t they?

    Coffee is the elixir of life around here.

    Ah, everyone is a critic, letting you know how to decorate your house! Heeheehee!

  2. Ms. Ellen, you’re correct about effort and purrsistence… both are very worthy things… I’m now rather embarrassed for answering the question salmon or treats… I was a bit hungry….

  3. What super filling in today! I’d choose a million bucks too over meeting ANYONE I can think of. Bat hunting is a worthwhile pastime and I bet you Sammy was the one who pushed the bat off its’ perch but Emmy was the one who dragged it into the hallway so you’d find it! It was a joint effort!

    Hugs, Teddy

  4. Those are some fantastic fill-ins. I would take the money too to help as many cats as I could. Sammy, we think it would be fun to go bat hunting too. You all have a great day.

  5. Those are great answers. Now I’m wondering when these kitties are going to come and take down the huge spider sitting on my desk. haha

    We like bats, too. Laynie especially loves them. If you see the photo shoot slideshow that I posted, she has a couple of pictures with Bat Skellington. πŸ™‚

    Kitty purrs are the best calming medicine there is. πŸ™‚

  6. Your fill-ins are always fantastic! I was honestly wondering how the Nicolas Cage vs. a millions dollar showdown was going to end. I thought Nic might win out, but you are so right about a million dollars helping lots of kitties. And my Halloween decorations are still up, too. I know I should probably take them down this weekend, but that also kind of breaks my heart. Purrs!

  7. Great answers. ‘Sorry, Nic’ made me giggle. Take care, my dears! I hope all is well. PS I think smaller fish tanks are more difficult. Not many fish do well in mine, while the 29 tank seems to have a healthy population of all sorts, including a pretty large clown loach. Heh…

  8. I love your answers! Sound of a cat’s purr makes me feel calm, too..and happy! How nice you got a gift bat πŸ™‚

  9. Ya, take the decorations down. mol Mom has only a couple of stickums left to remove and if she doesn’t hurry, Tyebe will take them down for her. She’ll never be able to use them when Tyebe’s finished with them.

    Poor ole nic Cage abandoned for money. You could help alot of kitties though.


  10. We like your answer to #1. Everything is worth a good try. And we like the idea of cuddles every day too:)

    I really want to gnaw on this bone, but I can’t get my paws there to hold it:(

    Mom wants to give you an update on my visit with my surgeon last night.

    1. Thank you for your answers. I am sorry you can’t grab the bone with that cone.

  11. I applaud you for taking the million dollars… So many cats still need help.
    It’s always good to have help with taking down the Halloween decorations ?

  12. Amen to 3 and 4! Your #2 made me chuckle…not sure I’d make the same choice with my #1 guy, but since he’s no longer with us I guess I don’t need to worry about it…not that I need to worry about winning a million dollars either MOL

  13. It would be nice if #2 could accomplish both. You’d meet Nicolas Cage and he’d donate one million dollars towards helping with cat rescues and their care. Wouldn’t that be something!

  14. We felines do not understand the fascination (and need) you humans have for this coffee stuff. I think you should try a little catnip,that would perk you right up (unless you’re like Tucker and catnip makes you mean!)
    Purrs & Head Bonks,

  15. Mom said “what” out loud right away when she read your #2 completion. But she’s pretty certain that every cat lover would make the same choice. We think the angle of the photo makes Sammy look like he is a hundred feet off the floor. Mom thinks that is wonderful that you have the opportunity to talk to your mom everyday.

  16. I am just catching up a bit while on my mini-vacation, so I don’t have my own fi;l ins, but yours were great t read, and I would agree. I only wish I still had a Mom to chat with…but I love chatting with some of the more cognizant residents about all kinds of things, including music, pets and recipes, and old TV shows and sometimes politics, too.
