Penny’s Tips Volume 30

Hi everyone! Is the Christmas season causing you stress?

The other day while researching pennies, I found a great penny meditation. Here is a link to it. It is on a religious website and I am not endorsing their beliefs, but the meditation is a nice way to relax. Click here.

Now I need to get this fat guy out of my box.

Penny’s Tips Volume 29

Hi everyone. Before I give you my tip, I want to give my condolences to Marg on the loss of her sweet boy, Lucky.

Sorry I look so sleepy. I am loving the heating pad.

My tip for today is to remind you that today is Giving Tuesday. You could donate your spare pennies ( or dollars) to a good cause today. We just made a donation to Marg’s Gofund me page in memory of Lucky. We don’t have much to donate, but every little bit helps.

#ChewyInfluencer

We have a Chewy review today. The perfect treat for your kitties for Thanksgiving dinner. Temptations Holiday Dinner Cat Treats are sure to be a hit.

*Disclaimer- we received Temptations Holiday Dinner Cat Treats, 16 oz. tub in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are our own.

Sammy loved them

 

 Trouble did too

And JoanieTrouble even tried to steal Brody’s portion. Everyone liked them, even KaTwo who rarely eats treats.

Temptations Holiday Dinner is turkey and sweet potato flavored. I am sure it is safer to give your cats these instead of some of your Thanksgiving dinner ( although my cats will probably score some turkey).  A 16 ounce tub is only $7.98 and shipping is free on orders over $49 so stock up. If you hurry, you can get some in time for Thanksgiving. Click here

We hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Penny’s Tips Volume 28

Hi everyone! I have a great tip today just in time for your holiday baking.

You can use pennies as pie weights. My mom just learned what that is….every time she makes a crust for the chocolate cream pie, it has bubbles on the bottom. I hope she tries this.

 Sorry, I insist she give me my treats in advance.

You just put the pie crust in the bottom ( use your imagination, I didn’t have a crust for the photo).

Then you put parchment paper or aluminum foil over it and line it with pennies, then bake as usual. They will hold it down so it won’t bubble. I recommend washing the pennies first even though there is a layer protecting the crust.

Penny’s Tips Volume 27

Hi everyone! I am being difficult for mom, she wants me to pose, but I am sick of having my posts bumped.

I do have a tip for you though. You should always check for wheat pennies whenever you get change.The front is the same, but the backs have wheat stalks on the sides.  Did you know they are all worth more than 1 cent? They were made from 1909-1958. To see a chart with the value of each year, click here.

I have a 1957 one here, sorry for the bad photo.

It is worth 8 cents, I know that doesn’t sound like much, but it is worth 8 times the face value.

Before I go, I want to correct something. When mom wrote that Prancie’s Prayer is a bestseller for the publisher yesterday it just means for Mirror Publishing which is good, but nothing like a real bestseller on Amazon.  I bet if she wrote a book about me it would be a true bestseller.

Halloween Costumes Part 3

Hi everyone! We are joining the Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Today is the last day of our costumes. I apologize that these are not great. These kitties were the most difficult to work with. Polar Bear refused to cooperate so he hired a stand-in. Drake is the stand-in , he is the mystery tock from last week. He has been with us for a year and a half. I haven’t written about him because I took him in with the promise that his family could take him back when they got settled, but they haven’t yet. And now we are attached so we hope they don’t. The spare bedroom is a time share between him and KaTwo. She is OK with the other cats, but will only eat in her room. He doesn’t have front claws, but still tries to fight everyone so he has to be segregated. He is sweet to humans though and loves it when I spend part of the night with him when my hubby snores me out of the room.

 

Penny-not the picture in the background. ( 2002)

Noel is supposed to be a penguin. We will accept 2 different answers on this one from films made in 2005 and 2006.

Drake. (2005)

Jinx is posing as himself, showing you his sharp claws, pardon the white panther in the background. (2018)

Tallulah ( 2007)

Remember, you have until Tuesday night 9PM EST to make your guesses on the 3 days of costumes. The winner will be announced on Halloween. Thank you to all who play along. I realize everyone is not into movies. Next year , we will do singers or tv shows 🙂

 

#ChewyInfluencer

Hi everyone! We have a Chewy review today. We love scratchers around here so we were thrilled to test out the OurPets The Wave Curved Cat Scratcher.

*We received the  OurPets The Wave Curved Cat Scratcher from Chewy in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are our own.

Penny was more concerned with the Chewy box and called dibs. ( Bets on how soon she will pee in it?)

  Jinx loves it. Sammy does too , although, I think it is a little small for 17 pound Sammy.

It is currently on sale for $11.99, click here While you are there, be sure to stock up because orders over $49 ship free. And they always have speedy 1-2 day shipping. Most of the time, our orders arrive in less than 24 hours!

Penny’s Tips Volume 26

Hi everyone! I’m back! Well, at least for this week.

This razzberry is for my mom for not letting me post last week and I know next week is Chewy week so I will get bumped yet again.

My tip this week is to use a penny to hold your curtain or drape down if it doesn’t sit evenly.
There is usually a space to fit it right in there.

Penny’s Tips Volume 25

HI everyone! I will let Penny give her tip in a minute. Today is the one year anniversary of Phoebe leaving us. We miss her every day, the house just isn’t the same without her. Her little harness dress still hangs on the hook by the door like Tiny Tim’s crutch.

I have been saving this story for today. Last year, when I kept bringing Phoebe to the vet for fluids and checkups, her vet was expecting a baby. Guess what she named her daughter? When I was there a few months ago she told me that when I kept coming in with Phoebe it struck her that should be her baby’s name.

Now time for Penny’s tip-

Hi everyone! Mom paid me in silvervine so excuse my pose, she caught me rolling in it.

My tip is if you don’t have a ruler, you can use pennies to measure. There are 16 pennies in one foot ( each one has a diameter of .75″ ).

Do you like Mom’s ruler? It is a Peanuts one that she has had since she was a kid.

Tomorrow we will be participating in Madi’s Come Laugh With Us Blog Hop.

Don’t forget you have until 9 PM (EST) Tuesday to enter to win a copy of Prancie’s Prayer. Rules are on Sunday’s post.

Thank you to all who have helped promote by sharing, purchasing, reviewing and for all your kind comments of support.

Penny’s Tips Volume 24

Hi everyone!

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Did you miss me last week?

I have a great tip this week, but mean Mom wouldn’t listen to me when I offered it to her.

She made this lottery tree for a friend’s birthday party. She put a branch in a small glass bowl filled with sand. I suggested she fill the bowl with lucky pennies instead of sand, but she said the party had a beach theme. I think she was just too cheap to fill it with pennies.

Don’t you think my idea was better?

Before I go, I want to let  Bionic Basil’s family know we are praying for him and his family. He announced on Sunday that he doesn’t have long on this earth. We are very sad. To visit him, click here.
