Friendly Fill-Ins Week 156

Hi everyone! Thank you all for the purrs and prayers for Sammy.

Things did not go as planned. Sammy did not get his dental because the vet heard a “gallop” in his heartbeat. She didn’t hear it when he got his blood work 2 weeks ago. He will need an ultrasound of his heart before he can go under anesthesia. I am glad the vet chose to be cautious.

I still have no answers on the nose. She numbed it and tried to get a fluid sample, but there was no fluid. She couldn’t take a sample unless he was under anesthesia so that had to wait. She took an x-ray, but there “expert” needs to review it.

1. ______________ was a very good year.
 
2. There is nothing quite like _______________.
3. If I had a talk show, I would want to interview _________.
4. There is nothing I wouldn’t do for _________.
My answers:
1. 1992 was a very good year. That was the year we got married. I was thinking of other years when good things happened, but unfortunately bad ones did too in the same year.
2. There is nothing quite like sharing a bed with cats. It is wonderful in some ways like falling asleep to the sound of purrs, but then there is the scratches they accidentally give me and the pillow hogging. I can’t sleep without at least one though.
3. If I had a talk show, I would want to interview Nicolas Cage.
4. There is nothing I wouldn’t do for my immediate family and my cats.

2. By this time next year, I hope to ________________________.
3. One word that describes me is _________.
4. If my life were a book or movie, it would be in the _________ genre.
My answers:
1. 13 years ago, I was still working as a tutor for the high school and my niece was still living with us ( she did until 2011).  I knew nothing about cat blogs back then, I sure missed out on a lot.
2. By this time next year, I hope to still have all my loved ones ( 2-legged and 4-legged). I know this is not likely being that KaTwo has mammary cancer and Millie is shrinking away despite his big appetite and his thyroid meds.
3. One word that describes me is quirky I asked my mom what she thought and she said “weird”. I asked my hubby and he answered, compassionate. I like his answer.
4. If my life were a book or movie, it would be in the comedy genre.

For our flashbacks, I have some photos of Angel Phoebe on Cinco de Mayo. It was her favorite holiday. As many of you know, she had a cup on her pole and used to collect tips. On Cinco de Mayo her Grammie and her Dad each gave her $5.
And now to tell you about the logs with red spots that I showed you yesterday. My hubby and I are attempting to grow mushrooms, I purchased plugs that have the spores in them. You need to cute logs and let them sit for 2 weeks, then drill 20 holes in each log. You hammer the plugs into the holes and use cheese wax ( or beeswax) to coat them so no other organisms get in. You also have to coat the ends of the logs. In 6 months we should have Hen of the woods mushrooms. This is new to us, we have only grown the button mushroom kits indoors.
Be sure to come by tomorrow for our Star Wars giveaway for May the 4th.

 

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 154

Hi everyone! About the cat I was trying to rescue: Thank you to all who tried to help me with transportation. I got a call yesterday and was told a local home was found for him. It is better for him to stay local because he is afraid of people and it would be a long trip. I am thankful his life has been spared and he now has a forever home.

2. I wish the word __________________ could be removed from the English language.
 
3. I’ll never outgrow _________.

4. _________ make(s) me feel old.
My answers:
1. I got my first cell phone in 1991. My hubby ( boyfriend at the time), got it for me. It was only for emergencies, service was very sparse and it came in a huge bag and plugged into the cigar lighter in the car. There was no charging a battery.
2. I wish the word ma’am could be removed from the English language. I am not a fan of hashtag either- it is a freakin’ pound sign. 🙂
3.I’ll never outgrow stuffed animals, games and needing my mommy.
4. Being called ma’am makes me feel old.

 For my flashback, I have a photo of Trouble on her first day with us last year, April 21st.
Yes, I forgot her Gotcha Day. Poor kitty.  Happy Belated Gotcha Day Trouble!
The A-Z Blogging Challenge, we are up to the letter W. W is for water. I want to remind you if you give your cat tap water to be careful.I am lucky to have a well, but if I had water from town, I would purchase bottled water for us and the cats. A lot of times there is rust in local water from cleaning fire hydrants, there is also a lot of chemicals to keep it free of bacteria.
This week is also the Pet Photo Fails Blog Hop hosted by Melissa’s Mochas, Mysteries and Meows in memory of Roby Sweet. Joanie wasn’t looking at me and Sammy’s eyes are lasers.

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.

3.When the days are warm, I open the windows to let in some fresh air and give the kitties window whiffies.

The A-Z Blogging Challenge, we are up to the letter Q. Q is for questions. Always question why the vet is recommending vaccines and treatments. For example, a cat doesn’t need a FELV vaccine if he/she is indoor only and doesn’t live with a FELV positive cat. Some places just want to make money.
