Grumpy Selfie

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

Joanie is posing with my collection of Grumpy Cat stuffed animals to pay tribute to her.

I am a day late for Sabi Saturday, but here is my entry. (Sabi Saturday is a hop where you show something old, repurposed or upcycled. I wish more bloggers would join this fun hop.)

I recently showed you a war ration book and cookbook to go with it. This is another item that was in the box with my great aunt’s photo collection.


Wear Orange For Crockett Day

Today is Wear Orange For Crockett Day in memory of The Lone Star Cats’ sweet Crockett who died tragically this week.

For the art, Brody used Lunapic cartoon and tinted himself orange:

Prancie went au naturale in her orange furs:

Joanie is wearing orange beads:

Sammy is sporting his orange tie:

And KaTwo has an orange hat:

I was also saddened to see that Grumpy Cat went to The Rainbow Bridge, she was only 7.

A Giveaway of a Giveaway

Hi everyone! Today we are having a giveaway of a giveaway which is kind of like regifting, so should we call it a regiveaway? Mom won a cool item, but she is too stupid technologically challenged and can’t figure out how to use it. Keep in mind that this is the same lady that loses the Q-tip cotton in her ear on a weekly basis ( even had to go to the doctor once to get it removed).

DSCF2403 (2)  See this cute little bear, he has a cord that plugs into your cell phone so when you squeak him it will take a photo. Mom was thrilled to win this because we always blink when we hear the camera click. Unfortunately, Mom didn’t realize you need to have an app for it on your phone or android. She thought it plugged into a camera, I told you she isn’t very bright.

Her phone doesn’t have a camera so she borrowed Grammie’s phone, but couldn’t figure out how to download the app. By the way, I saw my Grammie Saturday. I love her so very much. She also tried to use her Polaroid android and still couldn’t download the app. We hate to see things not get used so we are going to give it away. We thank the PetBlogLady blog for having the giveaway for a SqueakNSnap. If you know how to download an app and want to win, please say so in the comments. The app is free, it is compatible with several including camera360. I will announce the winner on Tuesday.

And because all this effort made Mom grumpier than Grumpy Cat, we are going to give away a set of 5 Grumpy Cat greeting cards to go with the SqueakNSnap. DSCF2404 (2)

DSCF2314Hey, iz my birthday month, I want a turn.

And one more thing, the question for P.S. Annie’s 19-Somethin’ Challenge is :Did you have a sport’s hero? I am not really into sports, but I did idolize Dorothy Hamel in the 1970’s. My parents took my to The Ice Capades with her in it- and I had her haircut. In the 1980’s, it was Mary Lou Retton.

And for all you Brody fans:DSCF2391

G is for Grumpy Cat

Hi everyone! Today is G day for the A-Z Challenge so of course we have Grumpy cat. I just love that grumpy little face, I wish I could hug the grump out of her.

We have 3 Grumpy books. The original one, Grumpy Cat: A Grumpy Book, The Grumpy Guide to Life and The Grumpy Cat Coloring Book ( apparently it is for kids which explains why I like it so much). There is an adult Grumpy coloring book that will be released in July.

Now for our giveaway. Car Decal Geek contacted us recently to let us know they sell several different cat decals for cars *. They offered us some to test so we asked for 2, one for us and one for our giveaway. DSCF1025 We chose “If you Don’t Talk To Your Cat About Catnip, Who Will?” Just leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway which includes a car decal like this and 2 crocheted catnip toys for your kitty ( please use responsibly). Phoebe will announce the winner on Sunday.

Please check out Car Decal Geek, they have 35 different cat decals , you can get them in different sizes and colors too. They also have many other categories of stickers and they offer free shipping on all US orders. Click Here

*Disclosure: We were given 2 decals in exchange for telling you about the company. All opinions are our own.

A Grumpy Cat Giveaway

Happy Thursday everyone! I am going to tell you more about our Christmas and then I will tell you about my latest giveaway.

003In addition to all the individual gifts and the fun cat box with holes in it, Peaches and Paprika’s Mom gave us this pretty reindeer blanket. I am displaying it over our bunk beds, I am on the top bunk and the bottom bunk is hidden for a great hideaway.

005Look what else Grammie gave me! I love her so very much! And she is cat sitting us tonight so we are going to get lots of party mix. Notice that is not George Washington on that bill. I am rich, don’t worry, I won’t let it go to my head.

010Mom bought a clear plastic ball that opens to put a photo in so Lucy was on our tree.

Mom got a gift that wasn’t cat related, it is a talking Sheldon ornament.

One thing he says is “I’m not crazy, my mother had me tested.” I think Grammie should have had Mom tested- MOL!

Now for that giveaway:

004 I have a small Grumpy Cat wall Calendar, a Grumpy Cat decal and some Grumpy Cat stickers. Comment for a chance to win, I will announce the winner on Sunday. You can comment every day for more chances to win.

I am joining PepiSmart Dog’s Thankful Thursday Hop because I am a lucky girl. I am thankful for my family ( especially my Grammie who I love so very much) and for my Purrince and for all my friends. I wish you all a Happy and Healthy 2016!!!

Thursday- Answer Your Cats’ Questions Day

Happy Thursday everyone! I will announce the winner of the stuffed Grumpy Cat at the end of the post ( no peeking) .Today is the day we get to have our folks answer all our questions so here goes: 219


1.) ( From Phoebe) Why can’t I write the post every day instead of twice a week?

2.)( From everyone except Sammy) Why is Sammy the only cat in the house that can be in Cat Scouts?

3.) (From Phoebe) This one is for Grammie to answer- I love you so very much, how come you won’t have a sleep over? It would be lots of fun, you can pet me and give me treats. Prancie and I won’t bully you out of your bed this time, we promise- we just wanted to be very close to you on the bed.

4.)( From all 15 of us) Why are there so many cats out in the cold with no homes?


I guess I need to answer these questions. First off, Phoebe , I like to write and visit with the other kitties and their folks too so I can’t let you write every day. Plus it would cut into your napping time and snacking time.

Next, I am too lazy to have more than one kitty in Scouts. Sammy is lucky that I remember to bring him to his events and help him with his badges.

Grammie needs to answer that question for you.

And lastly, there is no answer as to why some kitties are homeless. It isn’t fair, all we can do is pray for them and try to help as many as we can.



Thank you for all the great compliments, I know I am pretty, but I just love to read it. I put all your entries into a bowl and Dad pulled a name: And the winner of the Grumpy Cat is………. -Congratulations to Pipo and Minko, I will also include a photo of me as requested in your comment. You sure are lucky kitties 🙂

I will see you all Sunday!




Opt to Adopt Tuesday

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today is medical day and we are also participating in the opt to adopt blog. A couple weeks ago Brian showed us poor Turtle, her son got adopted and not her. I feel so bad for her and would love to take her, but 15 is our limit ( OK, its hubby’s limit- I would have no limit and end up a hoarder). She could get turned out on the street because she is healthy and spayed. Please spread the word to help her get a home or at least a foster home. Here is the link to the original post about Turtle and her son and how bonded they were:

I know a lot of you have kitties that hate going to the vet. I don’t mean the usual singing the song of their people, but really hate the vet. My niece’s cat, Nixon is one of those and there is finally a solution. There is a pain medicine used for dogs and humans,  but apparently can be used for cats to calm them in these situations. It is Gabapentin, I may ask for some for Millie the next time we go to the vet. He gets so upset and always ends up with diarrhea in the carrier. Has anyone tried this medicine for the calming effect?

Have a nice day and please spread the word about Turtle.

Phoebe said you have 2 more days to compliment her for more entries into the stuffed grumpy giveaway :005

Selfie Sunday with Phoebe

Happy Phoebe Day, I mean Sunday. I am so happy I can blog twice a week now! I have been noticing lots of kitties getting cars, like Roxy and Tigerlino ( ). So I decided I needed some wheels too. I am “borrowing” this Jolly Jalopy from my Mom’s niece. It is old, she got it when she was one and she is 26 now. Does that make it a classic?  It reminds me of my favorite show, Downton Abbey. I decided I needed a driver too ( actually, I jumped out when Mom tried to take my photo). Joanie said she would do it for a little catnip-004010It does have a spacious trunk- look at all the catnip I can transport:003. I really have nowhere to go though- why do I need a car? Maybe I will visit Grammie when it is warmer outside- I love her so very much. Did you know that I really have to go over the river and through the woods to get to Grandmother’s house? Just like the song- funny, huh?

Driver- I am ready now:003Do you like my cape? Mom got it for me, it is actually a tree skirt for a small Christmas tree, but she thought I could use it for something. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway for a chance to win a stuffed Grumpy Cat- remember to tell me how pretty I am for an extra chance 🙂

005I will announce the winner on Thursday!


Still Time to Enter the Giveaway for Stuffed Grumpy Cat


Happy Saturday everyone! We are doing the triple hop again this Saturday 🙂 I am going to use the same photo for 2 hops though. pizapjoyfulThis week’s 52 Snapshots of Life hosted by The Lazy Pit Bull was simple. I find every photo of my kitties “Joyful”, actually I find any photo of any cat makes me joyful. I really like this one because I got 6 of ours in one shot. Snowball is the white one, Prancie is orange. Lucy is the calico behind her, Joanie is the calico in front of her, Phoebe is sprawled out and Sammy is behind her.

To join Athena’s Caturday Blog Hop, I added a frame and the word “Joyful” on pizap.

We are also joining in Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

Please visit Phoebe tomorrow  and remember to comment daily until Wednesday for more chances to win the stuffed Grumpy Cat. Each comment gets an entry and an extra if you tell her she is beautiful, if she is really dazzled by the compliment you get another entry too. 005
