Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Despite looking grumpy Brody is thankful to have another friend, Millie.

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:

Grammie please come visit me,
you can chase me around the birch tree.
Maybe you can bring me some candy
and I will show you where mom hides the brandy.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

1. I ________________on Memorial Day.

2. I try to avoid _________________.

3. If I had a catchphrase, it would be _________.
4. _________ motivates me to work hard.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Hi everyone. Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers. Some of us have 4-legged children, some have 2-legged too- I wish you all a wonderful day. And I want to wish my special Mom ( AKA Grammie) a Happy Mother’s Day too!

Brody was the only one willing to take a selfie. He is most happy to have a mother.

We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.

We are also joining  Cactus Catz’ Sabi Saturday. A fun hop where you show something vintage/antique, recycled and repurposed. Last week, I showed you the war ration book my great-aunt left me. This cookbook was also with the ration book.

I used Loonapix to make some Easter art with Brody.

And for Sabi Saturday I have a photo of a stuffed skunk I got for Easter when I was a child. Emmy is not amused.

And for The A-Z Blogging Challenge, today is the letter R. R is for recalls. I recommend signing up for pet food recalls at Truthaboutpetfoods.com.They will send you an email every time there is a pet food recall.

Wordless Wednesday

Hi everyone! Today is day O of the A-Z Blogging Challenge. O is for odors and when you live with a lot of cats, sometimes, there are odors. I won’t use scented litters because the smell bothers me and I certainly don’t want the cats to have to lick that stuff off their paws. I just add some baking soda to the litter box. It works, it is safe and it is cheap.

Sometimes one of them pees in a bad spot. Usually Sammy when he is mad at me and sometimes it is when a cat has a bladder infection. I have found washing items with color safe bleach gets the odor right out.

I like how Prancie’s tail is sticking out from under Brody.

Fat Tuesday

Hi everyone! Today is Mardi Gras so several of my kitties have agreed to pose with beads. First though, Joanie wants to tell you about her new food. I know dry food is not recommended, but that is all Joanie can eat. She has yacked up every canned food I tried on her and she tends to eat the dry too fast and yack that up too. When my friend told me about PawTree and sent me a sample for Joanie I was thrilled.

*Disclosure: I was sent a sample of PawTree Real Chicken Recipe for cats. I was not asked to do a review, but I am choosing to. All opinions are my own.

As you can see in the photo, the pieces are small. She usually eats out of a bowl, but I thought it would be easier to see the food this way. It is made in the USA. No corn, wheat or soy. You can check out all the facts by clicking here. The link goes directly to my friend’s PawTree page so she can get a commission on sales. They have several other flavors too and canned food which I will be ordering for Joanie to test soon.  Joanie has been eating this for a few weeks and so far, no yacking- knock on wood , 3 times.My only complaint is shipping costs, but Joanie is worth it. Now on to the beads!

Who wore them best? No one can top Angel Lucy from 2015. She earned her beads.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

  Brody is thankful to everyone who wished him a Happy Gotcha Day yesterday.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo prompt:

In Sunday School we are taught gambling is a sin
so many rules, it makes one’s head spin.
I am a little confused though,
why do so many churches host Bingo?

 

My poem is meant to be funny. I have nothing against Bingo even though I have never played. Actually, I have played the Bingo at baby showers where you fill in the spots with gifts you think the mom will open.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

1. My favorite kind of music is _____________________.
 

2. I don’t believe ___________________.

3. My ideal day _________.
4. Don’t let _________ stop you from _________.

 

Happy 3rd Gotcha Day Brody!

I am actually a few days late in celebrating Brody’s Gotcha Day. Thank you to Pipo’s Petcretary for this beautiful card ( and reminding me of his special day).

Here is a link to his first post and second post. I was helping an older couple about a mile away to TNR ferals in their yard. Turns out he wasn’t really feral, probably a stray.  It took a while, but now he is a proper house cat and even has a friend in Trouble. And KaTwo even  protects him when Sammy tries to fight with him.
