She won this great hat-

And all this-

She loves her unicorn. We have to hide it when The Great One is here because she will want it.

Look at all these treats! And she is not planning to share.

She did give this cute pen to her Dad though. Thank you to Teddy and his mom for all these goodies. And thanks to all who voted for Prancie in the contest.

Prancie is so happy that she agreed to write today’s poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:

I already told you I don’t like being wet

Have fun in your white river raft ,
I didn’t realize you were so daft.
I will stay here and guard the house,
try to remember to bring me a mouse.

And to The Cat Corner on the loss of their handsome boy, Sammy.

If only this tree could talk,

Today is V day for the A-Z Blogging Challenge.V is for vaccines. If your cat is healthy and young, you can get vaccines at clinics much cheaper than going to the vet. Our local shelter does vaccines every Wednesday morning and the pet store also has a few days a month that the same shelter comes to for reduced cost vaccines. You save the cost of an office visit that way, around here that would be $60 and the vaccines are cheaper too than at the vet. I only recommend this for young and healthy because seniors need a thorough exam.

If you let your cats outside then you should check this list of plants you should not have in your garden from The Daily Gardener. And everyone should have The ASPCA website bookmarked.

A-Z Blogging Challenge: J

Today is J day for the A-Z Blogging Challenge.J is for Jackson Galaxy. If your cat has any type of behavioral problem, I recommend Jackson’s advice. You can see videos on youtube or get his books from the library to save money. Most of you have probably seen his tv show, My Cat From Hell. He really speaks cat and understands why they do what they do.

Hi everyone! Before we get started we want to give our condolences to Colehaus Cat on the loss of beautiful Miss Newton. If you haven’t already visited, click here.

Today is D day for the A-Z Blogging Challenge.  D is for discount care plans. I recommend asking your vet if they have one. Our vet is a VCA and they offer them. I admit I haven’t signed up for one because I can’t afford to do it for each cat. If you only have one or two kitties , it is a wise choice. You pay a set monthly fee that covers vet visits, exams, dentals, etc. All items are discounted, but if your cat passes away, you still have to keep paying monthly or you have to pay full price for any exams already used. This is the link for the VCA care club.

I was not implying you were getting fat.
I only suggested we skip dessert tonight
so we could get home and hold each other tight.
