Hi everyone! Today we want to tell you about a tasty food that all 13 of us like.

*Disclaimer: Chewy sent us a bag of Rachael Ray Nutrish Indoor Complete for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are our own.

Hey Prancie, why can’t we borrow money from leprechauns?

   I don’t know why Joanie.

They are always a little short. MOL!

  You know what is better than finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?

Mom leaving the bag of Rachael Ray Nutrish Indoor food on the bed unattended.

I agree!

All 13 cats LOVED this food. Sammy is on a special diet, but I let him have a little too. The pieces are very small which made it easy for Snowball to eat ( she only has a few teeth). And Phoebe who changes her mind about foods every day has been eating this one for an entire week already.

Chicken, Chicken Meal, Corn Gluten Meal, Dried Ground Peas, Lentils, Pea Protein, Poultry Fat (Preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), Dried Plain Beet Pulp, Powdered Cellulose, Salmon, Ground Rice, Natural Flavor, Salt, Choline Chloride, Iron Oxide (color), Taurine, Dried Cranberry, Dried Blueberry, Dried Pumpkin, Vitamin E Supplement, Zinc Sulfate, Ferrous Sulfate, Calcium Carbonate, Niacin, L-Ascorbyl-2-Polyphosphate (Source of Vitamin C), Dandelion, Manganese Sulfate, Copper Sulfate, Vitamin A Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate, d-Calcium Pantothenate, Sodium Selenite, Riboflavin Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Source of Vitamin B6), Biotin, Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex (Source of Vitamin K Activity), Vitamin B12 Supplement, Folic Acid, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Cobalt Sulfate, Potassium Iodide.

Hi everyone! Thank you to all who attempted Phoebe’s test , a few of you got them all correct and we wish we could give everyone a prize. The first one to get them all correct was Pipo and Minko- congratulations!!! I will mail out your prizes tomorrow.

  3. Celebrities                           .

My answers:

  1. I have seen CATS on Broadway. I bet you knew what that answer was going to be. 🙂 My Mom and I took my niece to see it right before it closed in 2000.
  2. My Chinese zodiac sign is the ROOSTER, I am excited because the year of the ROOSTER starts Saturday.
  3. Celebrities shouldn’t be paid so much and treated like gods, the real heroes in life like Doctors, military and police should be compensated better.

Selfie Sunday with Phoebe

Hi everyone!  I know I look a little funny, but these earmuffs really do help block out the sound of Mom’s caterwauling singing Christmas music. 100_9919

Speaking of Christmas, I got my first card already and it is from my Purrince.

100_9921 Sorry, I blocked his photo, I was kissing him.

My shades made it to Cat Scout Charles and we thank his Mom for this photo. charles

They still have a lot more places to go so don’t worry if you signed up, they will get to you- someday.

I haven’t seen my Grammie since Wednesday. I love her so very much, I hope I see her soon.

Have any of you ever heard of Festivus? It was started on Seinfeld, my Mom loves to watch that show even though she has seen every episode a bazillion times. 100_9922

I am thinking of having a Festivus party. We would get to air our grievances about our folks and then have a feats of strength contest with a pole. Is anyone interested? It would be on December 23rd.

And the winner of our my Thanksgiving giveaway for a catnip mat, crocheted turkey leg and pilgrim hat is It’s All About the Cats!  Congratulations!

#JHC Day 4 and Winner Announced

Hi everyone! I don’t usually get to post on Tuesday, but Mom said I can today. I am supposed to see Grammie on Wednesday, I sure hope she brings treats. I love her very much even if she doesn’t. Maybe my Dad will get us some at the grocery store today.

Poor Joanie has to go to the vet for an ear recheck. I tried to help, I deleted the email reminder, but the evil efficient vet place called to remind Mom of the appointment too- they sure are tricky. I am not sure why Mom has 2 carriers out though instead of one.

Today’s word for the #JHC Challenge is Cat- I think we have that covered- MOL!
100_9615  And the winner of the Black Cat giveaway is Brian of Brian’s Home. He has a lot of sisters so I better have Mom add a few more toys.

See you Thursday, I already have my Q poem done- do you?


Ode to Nicolas Cage

dscf2476 Hi everyone! I am having a bad week. You know how Mom took Noel to the vet, but I hid my card so I wouldn’t have to go? Turns out the rotten sneaky veterinarian sends email reminders too. I had to go with them and they stole some of my blood. I have lost a pound in 6 months, I am a svelte 7.15 pounds. My thyroid is hyper so I need to take medicine for it like Millie and Polar Bear- good luck getting me to do that.

Grammie felt bad for me so she bought me my very own bag small bag of party mix that I don’t have to share. I love my Grammie so very much.

Today is Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter N so I thought I would write a poem about Mom’s favorite actor.

Mom’s favorite actor is Nicolas Cage
She has liked him since she was 17 years of age.
All his movies she has seen
they lift her up like caffeine
Nic has been in a lot of flops
he has even played a few cops.
To meet him is the only thing on her bucket list
she just wants a photo. not a tryst.


And the winner of my piorate giveaway is Laila and Minchie– congratulations! I can’t wait to see you both dressed as pirates.


And for P.S. Annie’s 19-Somethin’ Challenge, the question is: Did you get into MTV? If not, what was your favorite music-based tv program? My Mom watched MTV from the start and she loved Solid Gold too. She used to want to be a Solid Gold dancer- MOL!

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow, we hope you will all join. Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

1. Something healthy I do daily is ________________________.
2, Something unhealthy I do daily is ____________________________.
3. This Summer,                                         .

4. This Autumn,                                          .



Hi everyone! Yesterday on Feeling Beachie, I learned that PetFinder is celebrating 20 years of helping pets find their forever homes. Please watch their short video:

When they reach 1 million views, 20  Pet Finder shelters/rescues will receive $10,000 grants. They are also encouraging anyone who found their pet on Pet Finder to share their story with the hashtag #MetOnPetfinder.

I am proud to say that I met 4 of my furbabies on Pet Finder. I was looking for an orange/white boy back in 2010 and found Sammy at a nearby shelter, when I went to adopt him, he was with his sister, Joanie ( formerly known as Megan). Then in 2012, I was looking for  tabby and found KaTwo through Pet Finder, she was all the way in New Jersey, but I had to have her. When I got to that shelter, I saw Snowball there. I kept checking Pet Finder to see if she was still there and 15 months later I was able to get her ( because sadly, Barney had gone to The Bridge).

And now Phoebe wants to announce the winner of her giveaway:

And the winner is…………..Cat Chat with Caren and Cody! Congratulations and we hope you have better luck than we did making it work.

Grammie I love you so very much- please come visit me!

And today’s question for P.S.Annie’s 19-Somethin Challenge is What did you collect as a kid? I collected stuffed animals, I actually still have several of them because I have trouble getting rid of things with eyes ( I know, I am crazy).

Phoebe’s Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone!DSCF1716 I decided to try my paw at poetry again, I know I am not as good as Sammy, but I will try. This week is for the letter C.

Cat-A-Bliss catnip is the best
it passes every test
I get excited with just one whiff
don’t come near mine or we’ll have a tiff
Luckily on Etsy ,it is for sale
you can get your own in the mail

I haven’t seen my Grammie all week, she is busy with the great one- phooey! I love her so very much, I hope I get to see her soon. I am thankful to have such a wonderful Grammie so I am joining PepiSmart Dog’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop., pet centric

I am not looking forward to the start of July. Mom says it is her “birthday month” and she she bosses Dad around ( more than usual) and she makes Grammie go places with her like book sales. She is quite obnoxious, I could see a week, but a whole month? Wait a minute- July is my birthday month too! Dad, go pick me some fresh nip! Mom, I need fresh water ( every hour) ! Grammie, come see me!!

And the winner if my 4th of July giveaway is Lola the Rescued Cat!

Selfie Sundays

Hi everyone!! DSCF1438 (2) 

I finally saw my Grammie yesterday! I love her so very, very much. I am very worried about her, she has a bad cold and sy-attic-a. I hope she feels better soon, could you all please say a prayer for her? Thank you.

DSCF1433 (2)Brody is getting pretty comfortable. He lets Mom pet him and he purrs. He only does this when he is in his “safe zone” in the upstairs bathroom. He does relax more around us too. I think he must be a relative of Grumpy cat, he always looks mad. I still hiss at him a lot to let him know I am the boss of this house ( plus it is fun).

DSCF1436 (2)  A Sammy selfieDSCF1437 (2)and a Prancie one too.

And the winner of the giveaway is: Three Chatty Cats ! Congratulations! DSCF1423Mom will mail this mat and crocheted ice cream cones to you on Tuesday.
