Selfie Sunday : Celebrating the 4th!

Hi everyone! My birthday month is off to a great start. My purrince wrote me a poem:

A Poe-em fur Buttercup Phoebe

There are buttercups inn thee field,
Their beeutee doess yield….
Peeple come frum far an wide
to stand by thee buttercupss’ side.

Mee has mee own buttercup sweet,
Frum the tip of her nose to thee tipss of her feet.
There iss not other flower for mee,
Phoebe buttercup yur thee onlee one mee can see.

Mee luv fur you will blossom an grow,
like a flower mee can plant an sow…..

Phoebe buttercup always mine…
Beautifull gurl; so sweet an fine.

He is a great poet! And my Grammie came to see me! And she brought me treats! I love my Grammie so very, very much. And my treats cost more than “the great ones” so take than great grand-baby.

I am a little mad at my Mom, a company that rents toys offered to send us one to review their company and she told them we don’t play with children’s toys. I would have loved to test one out, they had American Girl Dolls and their accessories are just my size or a Hex Bug would be fun to chase- phooey! I am the star of this blog, I should get to make the decisions.

Caturday Art52 Snapshots of Life

Joanie4th, The theme for 52 Snapshots of Life is “Patriotic” , a few weeks ago it was “flag” so we decided to be a little different today. I have a small collection of Statues of Liberty, this one was for outside, but I didn’t want her to get damaged so she stays inside. I added a frame with ribbet so I could use the same photo for Athena’s Blog Hop too.

005Phoebe wanted to decorate her pole for the holiday too. phoebeI took this photo years ago, but Phoebe looks so cute, I had to share it.

I am glad we don’t have plans today because my cats sure do. Sammy will be at a Cat Scouts party, he is hoping they have a hot dog eating contest. sam4thand my 3 tabbies will be at the Tabby Cat Club. Have a safe and happy 4th!! Phoebe will be here tomorrow.

It’s Saturday so time to get hopping. I am using the same photo for 2 hops. The Lazy Pit Bull’s #52 Snapshots theme is “Father” so I used ( I mostly use that one now because it is so easy) I made a cat shaped collage with some photos of the kitties on their Dad’s lap. I also added in one photo of my Dad with KaChoo ( I hope they are together in Heaven). collage1I also added a matching frame so I guess that can count for Athena’s Caturday.

Children’s Books about cats and Contest Winner

Happy 4th to my readers in the USA and Happy Friday to everyone! Today is book recommendation day and being that I am taking a class on Illustrating children’s books, I thought it would be fun to recommend some of those. Lucy is relaxing today so Millie is going to recommend his favorite children’s book. I will also be announcing the contest winner.

Cats are inpatient so Millie wants to go first: 005Milton Goes to The Vet is his favorite story ( he thinks it was written for him). I wish taking him to the vet was as easy as it is in this book- he cries the whole way and usually makes a mess in the carrier ( sorry Millie, I shouldn’t tell all your business).

I am going to recommend 2 books that remind me of our cat, Spooky who used to be a neighborhood cat until we brought him inside. First off is Six -Dinner Sid  by Inga Moore and the other is The Cat with Seven Names by Tony Johnston. Here is the Amazon link . In both books, a cat goes to several families for food and they all think they are the owner of the cat which leads to some funny results.

And the winnerof the Frolicat Sway is……..The Florida Furkids-Congratulations and check your email as I will be contacting you for your address to mail it to. Thanks to all who entered please keep reading as I will be posting another contest soon.

Have a great day everyone and if you are having a party, make sure to keep your cat secured in one area. Also,I believe all cats should be inside, but if you let yours out, make sure he/she is in before fireworks time. Thanks for reading.
