The Pet Blogger Bloopers Round-Up – May









Our friend Nellie is having a cool giveaway, to join just click here and follow instructions.




  1. Oh, my…Mom got even. But, Phoebe, you are cute, no matter what.

    I suspect Brody is not a true feral, but he has certainly been through a rough time. He is very blessed to have found you. You really did well for him, Ellen. Hugs.

    Nic Cage. Well, you are in movies, so you may meet him!

    I agree with #3 and #4. I never feel I have done enough, and never will.

    Hugs, my friend. I am so happy to do Fill-Ins with you!

    1. I am lucky to have Brody, he came at a time I had 2 holes in my heart from Lucy and Stinky and he filled them up. Nic Cage never seems to film in NYC or Boston, he is either in New Orleans, California or out of the country:( I am happy to co-host with you too. XO

  2. Darn, we forgot about Pet Blooper Day. So may things in which to pawticipate and so little time. Purrfect answer for #4. We entered Nellie’s contest. Thanks for hosting Fill-Ins. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    1. Thank you for joining the fill-ins. Good luck in Nellie’s contest, that is a cool prize.XO

  3. As always, I love your fill-ins! Whether he was a stray or feral, you did such a great job with Brody. And, I knew what your bucket list was going to include! And I completely agree with you on #3 and #4.

    Phoebe, that is a great blooper, and downright adorable. Thank you for informing us of Nellie’s giveaway – I didn’t know about it but will now be checking it out! Purrs, and happy Friday!

    1. Phoebe thanks you- she is plotting revenge for me on Sunday. 🙂 I have a one track mind with Nic Cage.

  4. Loved your answers. So you want to see Nic Cage before the bucket hits you. Mom and dad went on a tour in New Orleans and saw where Nic Cage lived. It was a gorgeous mansion type house. Fit right in in New Orleans. Mom says he still lives in New Orleans but thinks he moved from the lovely house she saw.


    1. That must have been nice to see his big house. I think he does still live in New Orleans and also in Bath, England- lifestyles of the rich and famous.

  5. Phoebe is a pretty kitty. 🙂

    As for #3, sometimes people are given no good choice. When we took on foster children many, many years ago, we were made to give up our kitties. It was heartbreaking, to say the least. 🙁

    Have a blessed day!

    1. Phoebe says thank you. That is so sad that you had to give up the kitties. Did the state not allow any pets with foster kids? I would think the pets would be therapeutic.

  6. The cats that show up here just kind of acclimate themselves to being around us. There are some we call no-pet-mes who want to be feed and talked to, but want no part of human touch. Others show up and love to be handled.

    Xerxes was a feral baby. Our daughters took him out of the mouth of another cat that was trying to kill him. Sparta was feral as well.

    The State of South Carolina issued an order to either give up our cats or give up the foster kids. We had no choice.

    1. That is very sad that the state made you get rid of the cats. The kids and the cats were similar in learning to trust so they would have been good for one another. I know cats are very good with autistic kids.

  7. Awwww, Phoebe, you still look lovely! I don’t understand surrendering pets either. It’s a lifetime commitment when you bring a pet into your home. So, do you want to meet Nic Cage? I couldn’t tell for sure? 🙂 LOL

    1. Phoebe says thank you. I guess I need to write it a few more times about Nic Cage 🙂

  8. It is sad people give up their animals, and i agree most of the time they could choose to make accommodations and keep their pets. There have only been a few cases where i’ve agreed that person truly needed to rehome the animal (and in most cases it was an elderly person going into a nursing home with no family to take the pet).

    1. It breaks my heart when elderly people and those that are ill can’t keep their pets. Most of the time there is a family member that could help and won’t- it is so sad.

    1. Nicolas Cage- best actor ever 🙂 National Treasure, Family Man, The Rock, Conair, my all time favorite- Peggy Sue Got Married 🙂

  9. Great answers. I wish we can have a cat but right now I can’t touch the cat litter since I am pregnant. Maybe one of these days we will be able to have a cat. We shall see right now we have our big 2 year old pup.

    Hope you have a great day.

    1. My niece has an 8 month old baby and she just had her hubby deal with the litter.

  10. I agree with all of your answers!! Mom agrees with your bucket list. Nic Cage is a cutie!! I took part in Nellie’s giveaway – I’m hoping to win because I picked LadyBird for mom!! I’ll be arranging for the Summer Dance this evening!! I can’t wait!!

    1. Glad you liked my answers. Thar was sweet of you to pick LadyBird, if you are one of the 4, we will vote for you. I bet the dance is going to be fun.

  11. Oh Phoebe you can’t take a blooper picture because you’re too pretty from all angles! Love your Mom’s fill-ins…..we linked at McGuffy’s because we couldn’t link here……hope you have a fabulous WEEKEND…….oh yes – we entered Nellie’s giveaway too – we LOVE Miss Barb’s needlework!!!!!!!

    Hugs, Sammy

    1. Phoebe says thank you. I don’t know why my link never works 🙁 Good luck in the giveaway, she does do nice work. XO

  12. Jeanne Foguth…who is Nic Cage? Here is a list of recommended Nicholas Cage movies for you to view: Moonstruck, Peggy Sue Got Married, Honeymoon in Vegas, Guarding Tess, City of Angels, 8 MM (R-rated), Adaptation, National Treasure and National Treasure: Book of Secrets, Ghostrider. Moonstruck is my absolute FAVORITE…can rewatch it over and over again, and do anytime I find it on TV. How did I do, Ellen, with my list?

    1. Great job on the list- I forgot about a lot of those- I loved Moonstruck and Honeymoon in Vegas and City of Angels too and It Could Happen to you is a great one. I didn’t care for Leaving Las Vegas though even though he won an award in that one.

    1. That is cool 🙂 My hubby’s b’day is the day before- that is why I know Nic and I would get along great 🙂

  13. Fills ins are fun and I love reading everyone else’s. Friendly Fill-Ins, Week 9, July 8, 2016: Wait! Didn’t I fill these in yesterday?

    1. ____Getting spayed_______________ was easier than I expected.

    2. Bucket list: 1. _____What’s a bucket list???________________ 2. _______________________ 3. ______________________.

    3. I cannot believe there are so many good, kind people who take in abandoned animals and love them dearly. .

    4. If I could save all abandoned animals , I would !!!!! .

    1. Great answers LouLou. A bucket list is the list of things you want to do before you leave this world. I love your answers to #3 and 4.

  14. Okay, Phoebe and awnty Ellen, ya’ both got in a good shot, so now let’s call a truce and hug it out. MOL Luvved your answer. We can’t believe peeps give up their fur babies either. And it makes us fumin’ mad.

    Luv ya’

    Dezi and Raena

    1. Phoebe says she will hug it out after her post on Sunday- I am in trouble 🙂 XO

  15. Whoa! I almost missed fill-ins!
    1. Training Pop was easier than I expected.
    2. Bucket list: 1. tuna 2. salmon 3. rotisserie chicken.

    3. I cannot believe TW still loves that fat Nicky who’s been OTRB a dozen years. .
    4. If I could stop having asthma attacks, I would be a very healthy cat. .

    1. I am glad you didn’t miss the fill-ins CK. Sorry you have asthma attacks, that must be scary. Nice bucket list. I am sure TW will always love Nicky, but she loves you too.

    1. Good point, it is just showing what a poor photographer my Mom is. 🙂

  16. I’ve never had any trouble taming a feral cat once we got it in the house.

    I’ve always liked Nic Cage, but I know a lot of people who don’t. I hope you get to meet him one day!
