This is the other rabbit statue someone was giving away the same day I got the purple one.

For my art this week, I used Ipiccy to make a coloring page out of one of Emmy’s illustrations from her book. I plan to do a reading at the local library and want to have a coloring page to give to the kids.

And for The A-Z Blogging Challenge, today is the letter L. Have you heard of Lucy Pet’s Cat Incredible litter? I haven’t had a chance to try it yet, but when searching for an L, I found it and it sounds like good stuff. They have a coupon for $2 off on their website too. Click here.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for the last of our Catburry Bunny auditions.

A-Z Blogging Challenge: C

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.

These are just some to get you started. If you go to the website of your preferred brand, they may have some too.

Emmy is checking out the proof of her book. It looks good so we are going to print and it will be ready in about two weeks.

Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone! Today we have an “ussie” from Sammy, Joanie and Emmy. Lately, Emmy has decided she likes to sleep on the bed at night with us and also part of the day. She used to whap Joanie, but now they are friends.

And here is Trouble, “helping” me fix Grammie’s glasses.

We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Emmy is thankful her book has the same illustrator as Prancie’s Prayer. Here she is reviewing some of the illustrations.

And I am thankful her blood work was good and Prancie’s was too.

Emmy wrote the poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo prompt.

Living on the water is not for me,
I would rather live in a tree.
I don’t like to be wet,
staying on land is a safer bet.

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 admire ____________________.
 

2. I can’t wait for _____________to bloom.

3. I’m proud to say _________.
4. _________ make(s) me nervous.

 

Wordless Wednesday

Happy Purim to all our Jewish friends! Trouble got to dress as Queen Esther this year because this is her first Purim with us. She is a big boned girl so the cape is too small.Here are some of the other kitties in the costume from years past.

Millie Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Monday. 

Millie is giving a sneak preview of our upcoming Chewy review.

I have a few medical updates. Millie could use some prayers. Last Tuesday, I felt a small lump on his side so we took him to the vet on Wednesday. The vet did a needle aspiration  and it is a mast cell tumor. Apparently in cats, they don’t tend to spread. Joanie had one removed from her face a few years ago and Angel Lucy had a toe removed when she had one. Ideally, we would just get it removed to be on the safe side. Nothing is ideal though, Millie has a heart murmur and is almost 15. He has also lost weight despite the fact that his thyroid is under control with meds. He will need an ultrasound to check his heart before any surgery, he also needs an ultrasound on his tummy to be sure he doesn’t have a cancer.

KaTwo’s lumps are a little bigger. Fortunately, her appetite is still good and she is still playful and enjoying life.

Sammy is also scaring me. He has a bump on his nose. I have been watching for about 10 days and it is still there. I think it is a little smaller, but I am not sure if that is wishful thinking. I will be making an appointment for him soon.

Today Prancie has a recheck on some of her blood work and Emmy is getting her annual blood tests. Seems like we are always at the vet.

 

 

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday What are YOU Reading?

As most of you know Lent began last Wednesday. I decided to read Whispers of Rest: 40 Days of God’s Love to Revitalize Your Soul by Bonnie Gray. There are 7-8 pages to read each day that include a scripture, a prayer, questions to think about and ideas to expand on each day. Some ideas include journaling and taking photos.

I am joining another hop that just started at CactusCatz called Sabi Saturday. I am late this week, but I was so excited that I figured better late than never. In the hop, we will show something we have found and rescued or repurposed, etc. You can read about it in full by clicking here.

I think most will put items they have rescued and I will eventually, but today I am showing you Emmy. I found her outside and kept her. Actually, I could show you a photo of almost every one of my cats because that is how most joined our family. I hope some of you will want to join in the new hop.

Penny is getting bumped tomorrow so I can tell you about Millie’s Basepaws results that finally came in.

 

Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and The Pet Parade.

For our art today, we want to give you a sneak preview of how Emmy appears in I’m Not a Skunk which will be released in a few months.

Emmy wanted to participate in Stunning Keisha’s 8 Facts About the Cat!

If you could do anything you wanted right now, what would it be?
Sit on my mom’s lap- I am actually doing that.
If money was no object, what would you do all day? I would buy mom a date with Nic Cage ( dad could go too) so she would shit up about him already.

Who would you want with you if you were stranded on a deserted island? Spitty! Sorry CK, I love him too.

Where do you most want to travel, but have never been? Nowhere. I like staying home.

What has been your biggest challenge? Getting my folks to realize I wasn’t a skunk so they would feed me.

What is your biggest success up until now? Getting into this family. And soon I will have a children’s book about me.

If you were to create a piece of art, what would the subject be? I am happy with the art above.

What one thing would you change if you had to do it over?  I wish I had lived here since I was a kitten.

Fat Tuesday

Hi everyone! Today is Mardi Gras so several of my kitties have agreed to pose with beads. First though, Joanie wants to tell you about her new food. I know dry food is not recommended, but that is all Joanie can eat. She has yacked up every canned food I tried on her and she tends to eat the dry too fast and yack that up too. When my friend told me about PawTree and sent me a sample for Joanie I was thrilled.

*Disclosure: I was sent a sample of PawTree Real Chicken Recipe for cats. I was not asked to do a review, but I am choosing to. All opinions are my own.

As you can see in the photo, the pieces are small. She usually eats out of a bowl, but I thought it would be easier to see the food this way. It is made in the USA. No corn, wheat or soy. You can check out all the facts by clicking here. The link goes directly to my friend’s PawTree page so she can get a commission on sales. They have several other flavors too and canned food which I will be ordering for Joanie to test soon.  Joanie has been eating this for a few weeks and so far, no yacking- knock on wood , 3 times.My only complaint is shipping costs, but Joanie is worth it. Now on to the beads!

Who wore them best? No one can top Angel Lucy from 2015. She earned her beads.
