It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww…..Mondays blog hop and Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? dscf2697

Prancie is showing you the latest edition of I Could Pee on This Too by Francesco Marciuliano. I have been reading these cute poems to Phoebe to give her inspiration for her poetry. These are just as good if not better than the original.

I have also recently discovered books by Laurie Notaro, apparently my head has been buried in a litter box because she has been writing for well over a decade. I started with An Idiot Girl’s Christmas from 2005 and also read It Looked Different on the Model: Epic Tales of Impending Shame and Infamy ( 2011).She writes about her life and she is hilarious. One tale was about her hubby accusing her of eating chocolate in bed because he kept finding chocolate star prints on his pillow. Eventually they discovered it was where their elderly cat had been sitting.

Today’s word for the #JHC is gate, but I decided to go with mice. dscf2669  Brody is posing with my cutouts I put on the steps. To give it a spookier look, I stop cleaning the steps in August so there is lots of dust. Just kidding, although I clearly need to use a swiffer on them.

Today is our 24th anniversary:

22 Years as a Cat Owner

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: 007. 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. weddingMy niece that got married last year was the flower girl. And this was us 2 years ago in NYC by the LOVE statue: 033One 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.
