Massage Monday

Happy Monday everyone! Joanie says thank you all for being so welcoming to her when she wrote the blog yesterday.Today is fun and games day and Joanie wants to thank with a giveaway so we are going to play a trivia game and whoever wins will get this book:002How to Massage Your Cat by Alice Brock. It is a spoof so if you win, don’t actually follow the directions in the book. I will also include some crocheted catnip toys too. Now lets get to the trivia:

1. What is Alice Brock’s claim to fame?

2. Skogkatt is another name for what breed of cat?

3. Which scientist/mathematician is credited with inventing the cat door?

4. Which city did the first cat show take place (in 1871)?

5.Which British Prime Minister had a cat that regularly attended cabinet meetings?

The first person to get all 5 correct wins- if by the end of the day no one has, whoever has the most correct wins- I am sure someone will get them all though being that the information is right at your fingertips.

A couple weeks ago Lou Belcher made a cartoon with our caption and this week he did another one ( I had sent in 2 when he was looking for captions):

0004CCLsm This sure does look like our house πŸ™‚

And Sammy is having a great time at King Meiko’s now: kingmeikokingmeiko1And his next stop is Dezi and Lexi. Joanie will be showing off her tummy tomorrow.


  1. Now this cat who was attending Cabinet meetings. Was he IN the cabinet, himself? Did he have a title? Inquiring minds NEED to know!


    1. I don’t know if he was in an actual cabinet Seville, but that would have been a good idea. Purrs to you too πŸ™‚

    1. I hope your Meowmy got to bed in time, next time let her rest before she does her secretary work for you. πŸ™‚

  2. I already know the answer to #3 without looking it up or thinking too hard: Sir Isaac Newton! #2 is Norwegian Forest Cat (there is one right now in the shows that I am not fond of at all!), #4 is London, at the Crystal Palace, #5 might be Winston Churchill, although I hear it was only a rumor that his cat attended cabinet meetings. Oh and #1… didn’t she have a restaurant or something? I would think that cat massage would be MUCH more popular!

    1. Yay- you got it Summer πŸ™‚ I will mail your book and toys out tomorrow- I would today, but I need to make some toys- a chicken leg and some fishies.

  3. #1 Alice Brock is the Alice in “Alice’s Restaurant Massacree” by Arlo Guthrie
    #2 Skogkatt is another name for a Norwegian Forest Cat.
    #3 Isaac Newton invented the cat flap.
    #4 Harrison Weir organised the first cat show at Crystal Palace London in July 1871.
    #5 Sir Winston Churchill was a great cat lover and one of his cats would regularly wander in during meetings.

    1. You got it Flynn, but Summer beat you to it. Sorry πŸ™ Your answers were very thorough though so I will send you some toys.

  4. I am trained in physical therapy for animals, so I do massage our cats. They love it, and it is good for them. We used to have a Norwegian Forest Cat (Kizzy). She was very unique.

    1. I would love to learn how to really massage a cat, the book is just a joke one. Norwegian forest cats are very pretty.

  5. Alwight awnty Ellen, tween you and den master we fink weez need to go back to school. MOL Weez not have a clue ‘but any of those questions and mommy be too (lazy) busy to look ’em up.
