#JHC Day 2 and Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone! I have a great giveaway starting today. Mom loves Halloween so much that we are doing two for Halloween. This one is black cat themed in celebration of the new book Layla of Cat Wisdom developed and edited to promote black cat adoptions called Black Cats Tell All.


The giveaway is for this beautiful catnip mat with black cats on it, a small purse with black cats( brown ones and grey ones too) on it, a black cat silicone trivet and a crocheted pumpkin. To enter, type black cats rock! in the comments ( you can write something else too, but that is all you need to enter). I will announce the winner on Tuesday.

I saw my Grammie yesterday. I love her so very much. I don’t think she loves me though, she didn’t bring me any treats.

The word for today in the #JHC Challenge is ghost.

Mom thought this photos of Lucy from 2010 would be perfect:


My sweet purrince wrote me a poem on Thursday, he is so romantic:

“Purrincess Phoebe

mee buttercup sweetie!!!
You are mee werld,
mee Purrincess gurl.
There can bee no other…
because yur sweet as butter!
Mee heart does sing,
yur mee efurry fing!!!
Purrincess Phoebe
mee fur ever sweetie…..”

We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfies, suck upΒ  Brody wants to wish all our Jewish friends a Shanah Tova! Mom made him his own yarmulke:



  1. Well, it IS true that black cats rock! Binga wants everyone to know that torties do too… even though that is sort of beside the point at the moment.

  2. WOW! A Halloween giveaway! Before I forget to say it – “black cats rock” and I mean that truly……..Brody looks fab in his new yarmulke and that photo of Lucy surrounded by ghosties is adorables. I am sure your Grammie loves all of you very much – just because she didn’t bring treats this time doesn’t mean she doesn’t love you – it means she knows you already have 87 pounds of treats stashed away and don’t need any more just now! HAHAHA

    Happy Sunday!
    Hugs, Sammy

    1. Thank you, black cats do rock! I actually used up most of my treats ( I am a bit of a piggy with them). XO

  3. Your giveaways are always so fun and festive. Black cats rock!

    Phoebe, of course your grammie loves you. We bet she’s just saving up a bunch of treats to give you for Halloween. And the poem from your purrince is so precious!

    We love Lucy’s photo with the ghosts. Too cute! And Brody’s selfie is too cute as well! Purrs to all of you!

    1. Thank you, glad you liked Lucy’s photo and Brody in is yarmulke, he actually kept it on for a while.

  4. Black cats rock!!!! Love Simon!!

    Great selfie, Phoebe! We love the photo of Lucy and the ghosts! A purrfect photo for the Halloween Challenge!!!

    Brody looks mighty spiffy in his yarmulke!

    Do you know if anybody is having a Halloween Party I can take Penny to? Let us know!!!

    Love to all!

    1. Thank you, Lucy was a great model. Brody does pretty good with the photo shoots. I haven’t heard of any parties, but we will keep looking. XO and love to all of you too!

  5. We gotta say Black Cats Rock! Whoa, wait! All cats rock. Doesn’t that sound better? Lucy is just too cute surrounded by ghosts. We wonder if she said “Boo” back. And Brody, what can we say!
    Happy (early) Halloween!

    1. I miss my Lucy, she was a great model. Knowing Lucy she probably hissed at the ghosts πŸ™‚

  6. Brody looks so cute with his yarmulke! We absolutely agree that “Black Cats Rock”!!
    PS…we are sure your Grammie still loves you. She probably just forgot your treats, and we bet she won’t do it again! πŸ™‚

  10. Sweet pictures today! The memory of Lucy and the Brody, and you of course, too, Phoebe!

    We don’t have any black kitties here, though Pipo is quite dark, but yes, Petcretary sure does think Black Cats Rock!! All the cBack kitties she has met are pawsome:)

    Hope your Grammie relents and hands out lots of treats next time you see her!

    1. Thank you , glad you like the photos- even Brody’s. I hope Grammie brings treats soon, I still love her though even if she is treatless.XO

  11. Black Cats Rock (I told M she had to type that because you give away the neatest prizes). Sorry we don’t visit more frequently. It’s been a rough summer for M and also because we sometimes have trouble getting to your blog. M doesn’t dol Google+ very well at all and can never find the blogs among so many other things. Anyway, we found it this time and are most happy that we did.

    1. No need to apologize, I know you had a lot going on with the big move. It is nice to see you today and black cats do rock ( black and white ones do too). XO

  12. Our Mama loves Halloween too πŸ™‚

    Phoebe, we know your Grammie loves you treats or no treats :p

    Black cat rocks! And Malou proves that to us every single day! What a character πŸ˜€

    the critters in the cottage xo

  13. Black cat rocks… certainly we rock. We are awesome! We are purfect!

    Mom didn’t get time to get the Halloween stuff out, she is doing all kind of stuff and running around like a chicken without a head.
    I think Brody looks awesome with his yarmulke. We are surprised how far he has come and how much he trusts you.


    1. I am lucky Brody adjusted so well. I still didn’t finish decorating, but I started and I have all 6 boxes out- I just need to get everything out of the boxes.

  14. Black cats definitely rock ! And Grammy probably didn’t bring treats because her pension check was late !

  15. Black Cats Rock! This is a super post with so much happening. Brody looks absolutely amazing (sorry) in his yarmulke. The photo of Lucy is precious, and we know it brings back wonderful memories. Phoebe, you know your Grammie loves you bunches, treats or no treats. You don’t want her to think you only love her because of the treats! Finally, that poem from Dharth is amazing. He really is a true romantic. You are a very lucky girl! Thanks so much for hopping with us. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  16. Of course black cats rock. All kitties rock.
    The pic of Lucy with the ghosts is cute, as is Brody in his little yarmulke.

    p.s. we don’t want to be entered in the drawing because I don’t enjoy nip and I know lots of other kitties would really enjoy a nip mat.

  17. Black cats rock, and so do all rescue cats! We adore your crocheted things and that pumpkin is adorable! Brody is becoming quite the model.

  18. Black cats rock!!!
    You crack me every time with the suck-up/Brody line, Phoebe. You look beautiful as always in the picture of the goodies – and I think the one of Lucy is my favorite Halloween so far πŸ™‚ No Party Mix!?!?! You might starve!!!! That’s what Grammies are for!!!

    1. Thank you, you know how great they are – you live with one πŸ™‚ Brody thanks you too πŸ™‚

  19. Black cats totally rock! Just ask our Gracie and Zoe! πŸ™‚

    Brody is rocking his kippah, for sure. And even sans treats, your Grammie loves you lots. πŸ™‚

  20. Brodie , darling, you totally rock that yarmulke! And black cats rock! So do almost all black ones like Kozmo, who Mes is loving furry much!

  21. Your grammie loves you, I am sure and is blessed so much that you love her in return.
