Black Cat Appreciation Day

We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and The Pet Parade. Today is a special day to celebrate black cats everywhere. They are least likely to be adopted from shelters. I am the proud mom to four and I have two angels too. I used Pizap to make a collage of my four.

  Noel is sticking her foot out, Drake is in his bed, Jinx is being held by his Dad and Trouble is on the rug.

Then I went to Fotor and made the collage into art. I also made it into  a puzzle ( see below)

And to celebrate Black Cat Appreciation Day we are having a giveaway.

Noel is posing with the prizes. A catnip mat with black cats printed on it, 2 black cat clips that can be used to hold bags of food shut and a gray mousie from IKEA. All you have to do it comment on this post before Monday at 9PM (EST). Sorry I can only afford to ship in the USA. If you do not live in the USA, you can enter and if you win, pick a friend from the USA . If you live in a country that says you need to do something to enter, put the answer to 5+7 in your comment.

Jinx wrote: Dear Santa, I would like a coke. Mom always says Jinx, you owe me a coke so I want to straighten that out. Love, Jinx

Halloween Costumes Part 3

Hi everyone! We are joining the Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Today is the last day of our costumes. I apologize that these are not great. These kitties were the most difficult to work with. Polar Bear refused to cooperate so he hired a stand-in. Drake is the stand-in , he is the mystery tock from last week. He has been with us for a year and a half. I haven’t written about him because I took him in with the promise that his family could take him back when they got settled, but they haven’t yet. And now we are attached so we hope they don’t. The spare bedroom is a time share between him and KaTwo. She is OK with the other cats, but will only eat in her room. He doesn’t have front claws, but still tries to fight everyone so he has to be segregated. He is sweet to humans though and loves it when I spend part of the night with him when my hubby snores me out of the room.

 

Penny-not the picture in the background. ( 2002)

Noel is supposed to be a penguin. We will accept 2 different answers on this one from films made in 2005 and 2006.

Drake. (2005)

Jinx is posing as himself, showing you his sharp claws, pardon the white panther in the background. (2018)

Tallulah ( 2007)

Remember, you have until Tuesday night 9PM EST to make your guesses on the 3 days of costumes. The winner will be announced on Halloween. Thank you to all who play along. I realize everyone is not into movies. Next year , we will do singers or tv shows 🙂

#ChewyInfluencer

Hi everyone! We have a Chewy review today. We love scratchers around here so we were thrilled to test out the OurPets The Wave Curved Cat Scratcher.

*We received the  OurPets The Wave Curved Cat Scratcher from Chewy in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are our own.

Penny was more concerned with the Chewy box and called dibs. ( Bets on how soon she will pee in it?)

  Jinx loves it. Sammy does too , although, I think it is a little small for 17 pound Sammy.

It is currently on sale for $11.99, click here While you are there, be sure to stock up because orders over $49 ship free. And they always have speedy 1-2 day shipping. Most of the time, our orders arrive in less than 24 hours!

We are  joining The Chewy Blog Hop. And the Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

 

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 118

Time for The Friendly Fill-Ins. Please leave your link (at bottom of post) here or at my co-host’s Four-Legged Furballs. You can also answer in the comment section.

1. I am going_________________.
 
2. I want to be more ______________.
3. Once in a blue moon, I _________.
4. I have a large collection of _________.
My answers:
1. I am going to get a much needed pedicure on Saturday.
2. I want to be more mindful. I feel like I have a ping pong ball in my head, I never concentrate fully on anything.
3. Once in a blue moon, I got out after 4PM. I know that sounds odd, but I rarely go out in the evening unless it is to a wake, wedding or something like that.
4. I have a large collection of Halloween decorations and I can’t wait to get them out for the season.
Today is Black Cat Appreciation Day. Most of you know that black cats are least likely to be adopted because many people think they are bad luck which is ridiculous. They are just as sweet and loving as any other color kitty.

#ChewyInfluencer

Hi everyone! We have a Chewy review today and we are joining the Chewy Blog Hop hosted by Sugar Golden Woofs.

*We received the PetSafe FroliCat Flik Interactive Teaser Pet Toy for free in exchange for a fair review.

Joanie had first dibs on playing with the PetSafe FroliCat Flik Interactive Teaser Pet Toy.

It has a string that spins around randomly, it shuts off automatically after 15 minutes or you can turn it off yourself.  Joanie went right for it.

Sammy did tooMillie and Penny had some fun

I think Jinx had the most fun, he even had the string in his mouth and pulled the toy, but I wasn’t quick enough to get a photo. The only cat not thrilled with it was Prancie, she gave it a quick sniff and went on to work on tearing some paper ( her hobby). I would say 11 out of 12 is a hit.

They are on sale for $19.99 this month. And don’t forget Chewy always offers free 1-2 day shipping on orders over $49. Click here

If you have a cat that likes to chew things, I would be sure to hide the toy when you are not there to supervise so kitty doesn’t eat the string.

Today is letter O day on The A-Z Challenge.

Emmy is posing with an Ornament for the Christmas Tree. I put a bunch of these on lower branches every year for the cats too.

Thankful Thursday

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

  I am thankful that Gremmie is not my responsibility. No wonder why Joanie can’t get paid to train gremlins, she doesn’t know how.

Millie is thankful to his friend , Sawyer for sharing this PTU Pooper badge that Teddy’s mom made for him.

Yes, Millie has popped in the PTU every time he has ever been in it. Last week, he went to the vet for a rabies shot and blood work. All is good, except his thyroid levels so he needs to take a larger dose of meds. Jinx went to the vet too and all was good with him despite being 15.

We are also joining Sammy’s Poetry Day, here is my haiku based on this photo:

Monkey behind lens
click, click with darn flashy box
reminds me of mom.

 

And here are the Friendly Fill-ins for Friday. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1.Before you ________________, you need to ________________.

2. After ______________________________.

3. Winter                          .

4. Spring                           .
