Selfie Sunday with Phoebe

Hi everyone! You know how my grass wasn’t growing fast enough? Well, my Mom felt bad for me so she went to Petco and bought me some tall wheat grass. Then Dad put it in a bigger planter for me:

I got to see my Grammie on Saturday. I love her so very much. I am very worried about my purrince though. He has been naughty and his Mum doesn’t feel very well. There is talk of him going back to “the farm”. I am praying he won’t have to do that. My Mom said he could live with us if he needs a home, but his Mum would have to agree and we would need help getting him because she doesn’t have a passport. Please send good thoughts his way, he doesn’t mean to be naughty, but he is a young boy and has lots of energy to burn off.

And now I am going to get a little revenge on Mom for all those photo shoots and for the future ones with those hats she is planning to make. Mom has been is some indie movies, and in one she is particularly bad and now you can rent it through youtube:

Some interesting facts about this movie:

Many parts of it were filmed on our property and some in our house.

Our dog was in it ( Katie, she went to The Bridge in 2011)

The guy that plays Mom’s son in the film, is the very talented Jamie Swimm who designed our logo and the Friendly Fill-In badge. He is also a cat lover.

This movie filmed in 2009.

March Madness

Hi everyone! It is that time of year that Mom gets mad because basketball is on instead of Sheldon. She did plant me some grass for being so good about my dental ( like I had a choice). Here is a video of me enjoying it.

Mom has had a bad cold so she didn’t open all the mail right away. Penny and Millie want to thank Toby and BobbieSue for the great St. Patrick’s Day cards.

I got to see my Grammie yesterday, I love her so very much. And she was here on Monday to watch us- lots of treats were served.

Some of you thought I didn’t look happy as Queen Esther so suck up Joanie thought she would model the costume. DSCF0868 Happy Purim!

PS: Spooky had his blood work , but we won’t know the results until sometime today. He is eating well though.

Phoebe’s Thankful Thursday

Happy Thursday everyone! Look what my Grammie brought us- I love her so very much ! I am very thankful to have such a wonderful Grammie.

006This is a 16 ounce bag- that is more than an ounce for each of us. I think I should get the extra 2 ounces being that I am the star of the blog and clearly very good at Math.

Remember my grass? This was then  006

and this is now: 008 Congratulations to The Lone Star Cats 

They guessed 13 days for the grass and that is it. We are going to send you some catnip toys.

And the winner of the black cat themed giveaway is McGuffy’s Reader -congratulations!

017Mom will mail out your prize today ( sorry, Spooky not included, but everything else is ) .

I will be having a pink themed giveaway for breast cancer awareness starting on Sunday. We have a pink mat and pink socks and pink toys too!

I helped Mom decorate, she made these bottles by adding fun stickers to antique bottles.

I kept feeling like I was being watched though.

Well, I have to go work on my Halloween costume now. Mom has really been slacking with those this year. See you Sunday. Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, PepiSmartDog.com, pet centric

Bird feeders-Bringing The Outdoors in for Your Cat

Monday again already- good morning and thanks for reading this blog. Today is fun and games day on this blog. As you already know, I am a firm believer in keeping cats indoors. I know it deprives them of a little fun, but there are some things you can do to give them a taste of the outdoors.

First off, you should get a bird feeder. We have a hummingbird feeder out right now, but we had to take down the regular feeders because there are bears in the neighborhood. You can get a hummingbird feeder almost anywhere ( Walmart, grocery store, etc.) for around $5, there are more expensive ones too. Don’t get tricked into buying the premixed juice or the little packages of mix. All you have to do is mix 4cups of water with 1 cup of sugar. Heat it on the stove or in the microwave then let it cool for a while. After you fill the feeder, put the leftover juice in the fridge.You can also put out a little feeder( for seeds) that suction cups to the window if you live in the city or if you have a window on the 2nd floor or higher.

Another way to give your cats a literal taste of the outdoors is to grow some catnip and cat grass in pots. They will need to be supervised when you let them play with this. I made the mistake of leaving the pot of oat grass alone with them for 5 minutes and it was mostly gone when I came back.

Don’t forget to comment on today’s post or even yesterday’s post to be entered into the contest!
