Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

 I am thankful for this great toy our friends at Eel Creek Chronicles sent to us. It is for us all to share, but I have been hogging it.

Mom said I had to write a poem to go with this photo. I have had a class in poetry at Cat Scouts camp last summer. Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day.

Is this a sign for a car or boat?
I think someone opened the moat.
All I know is I am glad I am not there,
I would rather get caught in my underwear.
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.
1. I just _________________-.
2. My next ________________ will be ____________________.
3. The sound of _________ makes me cringe.

4. Right now, I am craving _________.

Penny’s Tips Volume 27

Hi everyone! I am being difficult for mom, she wants me to pose, but I am sick of having my posts bumped.

I do have a tip for you though. You should always check for wheat pennies whenever you get change.The front is the same, but the backs have wheat stalks on the sides.  Did you know they are all worth more than 1 cent? They were made from 1909-1958. To see a chart with the value of each year, click here.

I have a 1957 one here, sorry for the bad photo.

It is worth 8 cents, I know that doesn’t sound like much, but it is worth 8 times the face value.

Before I go, I want to correct something. When mom wrote that Prancie’s Prayer is a bestseller for the publisher yesterday it just means for Mirror Publishing which is good, but nothing like a real bestseller on Amazon.  I bet if she wrote a book about me it would be a true bestseller.

The Purrfect Gift for Kids

Hi everyone! Today we are joining It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? The kiddy lit version hosted by Teacher Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers.

I apologize if you are sick of reading about Prancie’s Prayer. I want to thank everyone who has purchased it and/or written a review. I was thrilled when I check my publisher’s home page and saw it listed as a best seller for October. Click here.

As most of you know, it is a children’s ( ages 3-7) picture book set at Christmastime. It is based on how our cat Prancie joined our family. She really did appear at our outdoor nativity. I always tell people she went to Jesus for help.

I started blogging because I wanted to help cats by sharing knowledge I have learned from living with them. I also hoped to make money blogging so I could donate to rescue groups. I will admit that I have not made much blogging, I have only had 2 paid posts in over four years of blogging.. I have decided to donate all my royalties from October-December to Boston’s Forgotten Felines. I get just under $2 on every book sold ( except those purchased through me).

I chose this Boston’s Forgotten Felines because I have been following on of the volunteers, Joni Nelson, on Facebook for years. She is out at 3 AM daily feeding ferals in Boston. Many people treat her badly and try to poison the cats. Many of the cats are friendly and not actually feral, she tries to rescue them and find them homes, but there are so many. Boston gets very cold in the winter and I wish they had a place they could bring them inside , but all they can do is make shelters for them and feed them.

Here are the links to places you can purchase Prancie’s Prayer. Please share this post and help spread the word.

Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and The Pet Parade.

Joanie tried on Emmy’s bride costume before Halloween so I thought I would use it for our art. I used Lunapic’s Fairy effect.

You can see The Great One’s little curls to the right 🙂

I made a puzzle too- it took me 21 minutes and 44 seconds. I guarantee everyone they can beat that.

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 🙂
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.

Thankful Thursday

Look what my Grammie got me* for Halloween! I have the bestest Grammie in the world. I am thankful for my Grammie and for treats.

Now if someone would just open them for me .

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day to go with this photo.

Peace and quiet
no sounds from a riot.
No radio or tv
not even a buzzing bee.
No honking from cars,
must be like Mars.
Not even the sound of a bike
I wonder what that is like?

Happy Halloween!

Hi everyone! Happy Halloween! Thank you for all who made guesses in our 3 day contest. And the winner is Lone Star Cats with 13 out of 14 correct. I am most impressed they knew Gremmie was Rambo ( just like in Gremlins 2).

Here are the correct answers:


A Street Cat Named Bob

Runaway Bride

Bring it On


Toy Story

Nine Lives

Julie and Julia

O Brother Where Arte Though

Maid in Manhattan

Happy Feet or March of the Penguins

Many of you thought Prancie might be Harry Potter because of the scarf. I actually made it for Sammy to be Harry Pawter back in 2014.

And we still have our Jack O’ Lantern from 2014 from sweet  Angel Nellie.

Halloween Costumes Part 3

Hi everyone! We are joining the Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Today is the last day of our costumes. I apologize that these are not great. These kitties were the most difficult to work with. Polar Bear refused to cooperate so he hired a stand-in. Drake is the stand-in , he is the mystery tock from last week. He has been with us for a year and a half. I haven’t written about him because I took him in with the promise that his family could take him back when they got settled, but they haven’t yet. And now we are attached so we hope they don’t. The spare bedroom is a time share between him and KaTwo. She is OK with the other cats, but will only eat in her room. He doesn’t have front claws, but still tries to fight everyone so he has to be segregated. He is sweet to humans though and loves it when I spend part of the night with him when my hubby snores me out of the room.


Penny-not the picture in the background. ( 2002)

Noel is supposed to be a penguin. We will accept 2 different answers on this one from films made in 2005 and 2006.

Drake. (2005)

Jinx is posing as himself, showing you his sharp claws, pardon the white panther in the background. (2018)

Tallulah ( 2007)

Remember, you have until Tuesday night 9PM EST to make your guesses on the 3 days of costumes. The winner will be announced on Halloween. Thank you to all who play along. I realize everyone is not into movies. Next year , we will do singers or tv shows 🙂
