Happy Saturday everyone! We are participating in 3 hops today. First is Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. It snowed here yesterday and I tried to make a mini snowman with the kitties, but the snow was too powdery.Then I remembered I had posted photos on Facebook of one we made in 2011:
Lucy let him borrow her scarf and beret. Then we added the end of a carrot and some buttons. I think that can be our “art”.
And for the 52 Snapshots of Life weekly challenge hosted by The Lazy Pit Bull we have “music”. I ordered this keyboard cat scratcher for Christmas when I saw it recommended in Country Living magazine. It was $12 plus shipping at gamago.com, but I was clever and bought it from Nordstrom online for the same price, but they have free shipping all the time. I am glad that is all I paid for it because it isn’t holding up well after only a couple scratches. Joanie is “playing” it here, but Sammy needs some lessons:
Have a nice day everyone and please stop by to visit Phoebe tomorrow.
Happy Friday everyone! Today is book day and I have a great book to recommend. Lucy is not going to review a book today, she is just going to show us her Halloween costume: . Lucy loves Grumpy Cat so I made her a mask.
My recommendation is another book by Marie Symeou, A Forever Home For Athena. Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/Forever-Home-Athena-Marie-Symeou/dp/1484071417/ref=la_B005O9NHXE_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1414029659&sr=1-1. You all know Athena Cat Goddess, but do you know about her humble beginnings? I loved this book because it gives us a cat’s view of being in the shelter. I also love that it promotes adopting from shelters.
It broke my heart that Athena and her sister weren’t adopted together. I pray her sister got a great home like Athena did. It also made me think of my Joanie and Sammy, there was a third sibling that was gone before I got to them.They were almost 4 when I got them so I always feel like they miss him or her. If you haven’t had a chance to read this, then be sure and add it to your to read list.
Today is our 22 year wedding anniversary so in a way it is my 22 year anniversary as a cat owner too because I didn’t have a cat until I became hubby’s kitty’s mom in 1992. My niece that got married last year was the flower girl. And this was us 2 years ago in NYC by the LOVE statue: One of the kitties made us a lovely gift in the bathroom this morning. A Jackson Pollock in poop, I assume one of them stepped wrong in the litter box and shook it off- yuck. Have a great day everyone! And I hope you had a better start to your day.
