M is for Miaow! Cats really are nicer than people!

Hi everyone! Today is M day for the A-Z Blogging Challenge.DSCF1080

Joanie and I are recommending Miaow! Cats really are nicer than people ! by Sir Patrick Moore. I am lucky my hubby is a Science nerd and reads Astronomy magazine or I would not have known about this book.

Sir Patrick Moore was the author of more than 70 books on Astronomy and also hosted the BBC’s TV show, The Sky at Night. In addition to that, he was a cat lover. This book was published in April of 2012, nine months before his passing. It is filled with beautiful photos of his cats and stories about them. “They never fail me” was one line in his book that really stood out. My cats never fail me either.

And don’t forget to get your free download of Hilary Grossman’s Plan Bea on Amazon. Free - how well

Thank you all for the purrs and prayers for Spooky as well as the suggestions. He did eat more Thursday than he did the 2 days before combined. He is still not eating enough, but I am hoping he eats a little more each day.

Phoebe’s Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! I got to see my Grammie yesterday and guess what she bought me?

012My own gumball machine! Remember how stingy Mom wouldn’t let me have the one she bought for marbles, well this one is better – it is pink. I love my Grammie so very much.

Please help me decide, should I put kitty treats in it or candy so Mom and Dad will have to pay me to get it out? 016

I am going to try to be extra good. I heard Mom talking to Dad and she said there really is such thing as H*LL.  She said it is in a place called Babies ‘R US.

Have any of you ever tried Dr. Elsey’s cat litter? 018Mom bought us some yesterday and said she would spread the word that you can get a coupon for $3 off a 40 pound bag if you click here and they will also donate $3 to MMRF (Multiple Myeloma Research Fund). Dr. Elsey’s wife had that kind of cancer in 2009. You can also upload a photo on Twitter and/or Instagram #CatsAgainstCancer

Kangaroo Hopping

Saturdays are for hopping and nothing hops better than a kangaroo. I was thrilled to get a package in the mail from Australia. Most of you probably know Fozziemum , but if you don’t then please check out her link. She lives in the Outback with lots of pets and is an incredible photographer. She takes amazing photos of nature and my favorites are of the kangaroos. Words can’t express how happy getting these 12 cards in the mail have made me. I doubt I am going to send any of them, I am definitely framing some of them, if not all.

These are my entry for The Lazy Pit Bull’s #52 Snapshots of Life, the theme this week is “framed” and these deserve to be framed. Thank you Fozziemum.
