Hi everyone! Thank you for all the purrs and prayers for Sammy. We got good news yesterday. He has a murmur, but not a gallop. Gallops are very bad so I am relieved. He can also get his dental now. I actually think I am going to bring him to this new place where he got his echocardiogram- they are amazing. It is an hour away, but he travels well.
Hi everyone! Today is day U of the A-Z Blogging Challenge. U is for used, I purchase used items for my cats at tag sales and on Craigslist. I have gotten like new cat trees from both.
I am trying something new. Every week Messymimi lists words for us to make a story with for Words on Wednesday. There were 2 sets of words and I chose: hall, conscious, ad hoc, sign, yarn and share.

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.
Hi everyone! Today is day I of the A-Z Blogging Challenge. I is for Insurance. If I only had one or two cats, I would buy them insurance, but I can’t afford it for my entire crew. There are several companies offering pet insurance now and they all have their pros and cons. Here are two links to websites that break them down. Consumeradvocate and Top10Pet Insurance
Hi everyone! Today is day C of the A-Z Blogging Challenge. C is for coupons, the Sunday paper always has some for litter and cat foods. If you don’t get the paper, you can check online.

Click here.There were several for dog food on there too.
Fancy Feast has coupons on their website- click here
Coupon Mom has several cat food ones too. click here
These are just some to get you started. If you go to the website of your preferred brand, they may have some too.
Hi everyone! We know it is Wordless Wednesday, but we want to give you a Sammy update.
Basically, we didn’t get any answers at his appointment. The vet said she had not seen a bump like that and thought it could be trauma ( KaTwo does whap him in the nose often). He also has a bad fang and she thought they might be connected. The quickest appointment for a dental was May 9th so if it is still there, he will get an x-ray and a needle aspirate.
And don’t forget our book giveaway. Just comment on Monday’s post before Wednesday at 9 PM ( EST).
