Phoebe’s Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! I got to see my Grammie yesterday and guess what she bought me?

012My own gumball machine! Remember how stingy Mom wouldn’t let me have the one she bought for marbles, well this one is better – it is pink. I love my Grammie so very much.

Please help me decide, should I put kitty treats in it or candy so Mom and Dad will have to pay me to get it out? 016

I am going to try to be extra good. I heard Mom talking to Dad and she said there really is such thing as H*LL.Β  She said it is in a place called Babies ‘R US.

Have any of you ever tried Dr. Elsey’s cat litter? 018Mom bought us some yesterday and said she would spread the word that you can get a coupon for $3 off a 40 pound bag if you click here and they will also donate $3 to MMRF (Multiple Myeloma Research Fund). Dr. Elsey’s wife had that kind of cancer in 2009. You can also upload a photo on Twitter and/or Instagram #CatsAgainstCancer


Thank you Toby and family for this beautiful badge you made for me.


I will be starting a Dr. Seuss giveaway on Thursday. I am joining The Cat on my Head’s Selfie Sunday Blog Hop.Cat4-001


    1. Someone pointed out Grammie treats me so if I put people treats I can make some money.

  1. Wow, we can’t believe your granny got you your own Gumball machine!! We remember the big one your Mom had, and we were feeling so sorry for you! Treats! You should also start a toll somewhere in the house. Maybe at the bathroom door?

    We keep ou paws crossed for your heart, and yes, you got a beautiful badge.

    1. Joanie already charges Mom to go upstairs- and she charges double, half way up and at the top. If I charged for the bathroom I would have enough money to buy a cat tree in a day. πŸ™‚

  2. I think you have to refill the machine with nipballs, Phoebe πŸ˜‰ The badge is just purrfect. We keep you in our purrayers and Healing sessions. Pawkisses for a Happy Sunday πŸ™‚ <3

    1. Where can I get some nip balls? Yum! Thank you for the prayers and for including me in your healing sessions. XO

  3. Gosh Phoebe…..I’m thinking you should put people treats in your gumball machine and make your Mom and Dad PAY to get their treats – what a great way to make some $$$$$ !!!

    Hugs, Sammy

  4. You got your own gumball machine??? Wow – that is so cool. I think you should fill it with candy so your mom and dad have to pay you. Oh, think of the things you can buy!!!

  5. We say human treats, the pawrents have to pay to access! That way you will make some pocket money to buy anything your little heart desires! If you put kitty treats in there you will be dependent on the humans to give them to you and we all know how inconsistent and negligible they can be on that front! ;p

  6. Your grammie sure is pawesome, Phoebe! I love your gumball machine, but now you have such a tough decision – treats sure do sound like a purrfect idea, but I think you’re on to something with making your mom and dad pay for candy.

    I’d never heard of Dr. Elsey’s litter before. Thank you for informing us of this. I love that it’s for a good cause, too.

    Purrs and prayers to you, Phoebe!

    1. I am lucky to have a wonderful Grammie. We just tried the litter and it is good- doesn’t smell and it clumps nicely. Thank you for the purrs and prayers.

  7. P.S. Do you like that litter? We are looking for a new, natural litter (non perfumed) that absorbs odor better.

    1. I do like it. I just started using it today, but so far the cats like it and it clumps good. It is not scented which is a big plua- I will let you know about the odor control in a couple of days.

  8. People treats Phoebe–people treats. Always get the cash! Build yourself a nice little nest egg. You’re in our kitty prayers. <3

  9. You tell your humans to fill that gumball machine with kitty treats. Let’s get their priorities straight.

  11. Phoebe darling, you have asked us a very difficult question with regard to your gumball machine. Do you have an allowance to use in the machine to get treats out? If not you better go with the candy for humans. You cracked us up with the Babies R Us comment. We use that brand of Cat Litter, but we use the Cat Attrack. We get it from Amazon. Thanks for hopping, sweetie. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    1. Good point, I have a piggy bank with change , but I don’t want to buy my own treats. Glad you got a chuckle πŸ™‚ Mom will price the litter on Amazon, it was on sale at Petco and she had the coupon so it was a good price. XO

    1. The Kitties Blue just pointed out I would have to pay for my treats if I put them in there- I don’t like that.

  12. Gosh, that’s a tough choice, but I think I would go with the treats. Thanks for the info on the coupon for Dr. Elsey’s. We have tried that litter and really like it.

    1. It is on sale at Petco and if you use the coupon too, it is a good deal and you help a good cause.

  13. I think your treats should go in there as long as you can have them whenever you want. That is a lovely badge that Timmy and family made for you.

    1. Toby made the badge, that is Penny’s boyfriend. I am so torn, I don;t want to pay for my own treats, but they would be fun to have in there.

  14. We vote for kitty treats. That way you can have more of them. Just help yourself. You all have a super day.

  15. Hi yer Phoebe, I’m jealous already, a pink treat machine is absolutely fab, and exactly what it should be… mind you only if you have the key to the lock. Failing that I would let the peeps have their treats in it, under supervision of course. purrs Erin

    1. Thank you for your advice and for visiting me. I hope you get a gumball machine too.

  16. Meow Phoebe, lots of good news. Concats on da gumball machine. Da kind of treats we like bestest wuldn’t be good in a machine, so we think peeps treats are a good idea. And tell yous mommy, fank you. We just clicked right on over. Yous link is purrfect now. πŸ™‚ Gweat fotos. We hope yous all have a blest day.

    Luv ya’

    Dezi and Lexi

    1. Make sure you get your $3 off coupon. I am happy with it, I think we will be using it for now on.

  17. hrm, now if you make them pay up, you could choose to either use the profits for treats or a new toy, as the mood strikes. We vote for that!

  18. I think you should put treats in your gum ball machine – and make the other kitties pay to get them out! There are more kitties than humans in your house so you’d make more money.

    1. Yes, it is. I am sorry you lost a kitty to that. My Lucy had cancer, but I don’t know what kind it was.
