Thankful Thursday

Today is V day for the A-Z Blogging Challenge.V is for vaccines. If your cat is healthy and young, you can get vaccines at clinics much cheaper than going to the vet. Our local shelter does vaccines every Wednesday morning and the pet store also has a few days a month that the same shelter comes to for reduced cost vaccines. You save the cost of an office visit that way, around here that would be $60 and the vaccines are cheaper too than at the vet. I only recommend this for young and healthy because seniors need a thorough exam.

We are also joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Emmy is thankful to everyone who has helped promote her book. I am thankful too. Don’t forget to take a guess at the number of pennies Penny has on her post on Tuesday for a chance to win a copy of the book.

Here is my poem today for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on  this adorable photo prompt.

Hey big sis , look at me!
I know I am not three,
but I want to be just like you
even if it means wearing a tutu.
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 got my first cell phone in ____________.
 
2. I wish the word __________________ could be removed from the English language.
 
 
3. I’ll never outgrow _________.

4. _________ make(s) me feel old.
One more thing….. I am trying to rescue a kitty that lives in SC. Does anyone know a trucker that travels down there all the way to CT or MA? Or do you know of anyone traveling from an airport in Greenville, SC, Atlanta, GA, Asheville, NC to Hartford, CT? I know this is an odd request, but I figured I would put it out there. Thank you.

Penny’s Tips Volume 37

Hi everyone. Penny has a tip for you today, but first I want to apologize to all who tried to visit on Monday and couldn’t get to the post. I updated some plug-ins and something went wrong. GoDaddy was able to restore and get the blog back , but so far Monday’s post is missing. If it doesn’t return, I will redo it because I want all the letters for the A-Z challenge.

Now on to Penny. 

Hi everyone! I have a great tip for you today. You can use pennies to have a contest. You can fill a jar and have people guess how many are in the jar. I am having a contest today, Emmy said I can give away a copy of her book, I Am Not A Skunk. Whoever guesses how many pennies are in this sugar bowl is the winner. Sorry, my cheap mom said we can only mail in the USA. If more than one of you guesses correctly, I will draw names. You have until Friday at 9 PM ( EST) to put your guess on this post. I will announce the winner on Saturday’s post. Good luck!

And today is T day for The A-Z Blogging Challenge. T is for toys and to save money you can make your own.  As you know, I crochet toys and sew catnip mats, but you don’t even have to crochet or sew to make toys. You can take a sock, fill it with nip and tie the end. Check Pinterest for more ideas too.

Emmy’s Book is Ready!

Hi everyone! Today we are joining It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? The kiddy lit version hosted by Teacher Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers.

I apologize if you are sick of hearing about Emmy’s book. Here is the synopsis: It is about a homeless kitty excited to find a
family, but must first convince them she is not a
skunk. It is loosely based on how the author’s cat,
Emmy came to live with her. ( ages 3-8).

I wish I could afford to give everyone a paperback version, but that is not possible. I have already been in contact with some of you to do reviews and I appreciate your help. I did make a Kindle version and it is available for free from Tuesday-Saturday this week. If anyone has time, I would be very grateful if you could do a review on Amazon, Barnes and Noble or Goodreads.

I have some copies available for sale for $10 which includes shipping in the USA. If you want to purchase one please let me know in the comments and I will contact you. I will be having a giveaway on here soon and one on Goodreads too. Emmy and I thank you for your support.
