Thankful Thursday

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

Joanie is happy that The Great One came over to play with her. I am happy too because she didn’t want to come over for several months. I go to her house to see her often, but she is like me in preferring to be home. Well, she finally decided she needed to come see Joanie.

We played costume shop and all these stuffies bought their Halloween costumes 🙂

Millie made a big mistake when he decided to be friendly. He got dressed as Elsa.

I was a bad girl and didn’t do my homework so I have no poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. 

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

3. _________ is my favorite thing about myself.
4. These days, my biggest priority is _________.

Joanie is thankful for her pet Gremmie.

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo prompt:

That sure is a big crowd
I bet it is quite loud.
I won’t go near there for any wage
well, maybe to meet Nicolas Cage

Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and The Pet Parade. We want to wish Athena’s Mum a Happy Birthday!!

I used fotor, the pop art effect to make art with Joanie and Gremmie’s 4th of July photo.

I also made a puzzle. It took me 23 minutes and 28 seconds. I am sure you can all beat that.

Happy 4th of July!

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful to live in the USA and thankful to all who have kept us free and continue to do so.

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:

While many are out on a warm summer night ,
I prefer to stay inside and avoid a mosquito bite.
Enjoy those fireworks,
I will be dreaming of winter’s perks.
Warm weather may make plants grow,
but I much prefer the cold and snow.

Snowflakes in July

Hi everyone. Before we get started, I want to give my condolences to Summer, Boodie and their human on the loss of Binga. I always loved to see Binga in a post, usually interrupting a photo shoot. She was a tortie with tortitude and will be missed by all. She was also a founding member of The Crotchety Cougars. To visit her family,click here.

This week, I am joining Create with Joy’s Inspire me Monday and Comedy Plus’ Awww…. Mondays.

  Joanie is posing with the book of patterns that I  have been using to make snowflakes. My goal is to make at least one of each before Christmas. 100 Snowflakes to Crochet by Caitlin Sainio is divided into 3 sections of difficulty. I am still on the easy ones. Below is a photo of the 24 I have completed plus all the duds. Some came out larger than they were supposed to( the duds) so I will use those as coasters. My mom got me this book for my birthday several years ago and I finally got brave enough to try the patterns.

Inspire Me Monday

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?

My librarian knows me so well that she sets books aside that she thinks I will like which means they are about cats ( she is a fellow cat lover too). She recently saved for me, The Cat Men of Gotham: Tales of Feline Friendships in Old New York by Peggy Gavan. I am glad she did because I had not heard of this one.

It was an interesting book that reads more like a history book. It was nice to find out that there were a lot of cat lovers in NYC even back in the 1800’s. Sadly though, there were a lot of people that didn’t like them and some stories were quite tragic. One story told of a kitten that fell between 2 buildings and lived there for 2 years ( people sent food and water down to it) until someone figured out a way to lasso it and got it out. The landlord would not let residents cut a hole in the building to get to it, so sad.

This book was well written and researched , but if sad kitty stories bother you then you really will want to skip this one because the sad outweighs the happy endings.
