Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone! 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.

We have repurposed a lot of screen doors for use inside the house. This is one in the kitchen leading to the hallway. We had to come up  with a way to separate cats and allow heat and air to pass through the doors.

Joanie and Gremmie wanted to do the selfie for today.

Cat Vs Dog-The Pet Diaries 1

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday What are YOU Reading?

I was thrilled when Rosa Silva offered me a chance to review her latest book Cat VS Dog- The Pet Diaries 1. I enjoyed her other two books, you can read those reviews here and here.

*Disclaimer- I received a copy of Cat VS Dog in exchange for a fair review.All opinions are my own.

I am pleased to report that this book was just as enjoyable as Rosa’s other two. The illustrations are fantastic and really bring the diaries to life.

It is fun to read what Oliver, the cat thinks of Max, the new dog. At first, Oliver wants to get the dog into trouble, but Max’s sweet personality starts to wear him down. I don’t want to tell you everything as this is also part mystery story. I highly recommend it for any cat lover ( and/or dog lover too).

It is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle format.

 

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.

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

We Won a Catit Vesper Cottage!

Hi everyone! Poor Penny is getting bumped from her tips today so we could show you what we won from Sweet Purrfections. We won this at the end of March and it was delivered right away. I left it in the box for my hubby to put together, but he has been busy with outdoor tasks. Then I remembered that I didn’t need him to assemble this- no tools are even needed.

*Disclosure-I won a Catit Vesper Cottage. I am not required to do a review. All opinions are my own.

All I need is my Sammy.

I got this mom

It was idiot proof! You just slide the pieces together like a fun puzzle. It comes in oak and white. I chose white because I have a white bookcase and a shelf in the bedroom which is where this piece will be located.

Joanie and Sammy were eager to test it out when it was on the bed. As you can see, it has 2 levels, and came with a cushion for each level. It is very sturdy and I like the little cat head carved in the top.

Once I set it on the floor, they lost interest, but I am sure they will go back to it. Thank you Sweet Purrfections and Catit for this amazing prize.

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.

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. Thank you to all who participate. Don’t forget to add your link to the hop so everyone can visit you.

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.

Here is a flashback from 2014 or 2015. Sadly, 3 of the 4 of these kitties are no longer with us. Snowball, Lucy and Spooky are at The Rainbow Bridge.

Penny’s Tips Volume 38

Hi everyone! Penny has a tip for you today, but first Joanie wants to announce the winner of the Star Wars Giveaway.

And the winner is Mark’s Mews. Congratulations!

Hi everyone! Did you know there are some pennies out there worth up to $200,000. Not me, I am worth way more than that.

In 1943 there was a copper shortage so pennies were made out of steel, but about 40 were made of copper and some are still in circulation. In January one sold for $204,000 at an auction. To read more, click here.

Let me help you Penny. We sure could buy a lot of treats with that kind of money.

Who do you think looked best?

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 was close to my Great Aunt. When she passed away in 1988, she left me her photo collection and this war ration book from WWII was in there too.

And don’t forget to comment on yesterday’s post to enter our Star Wars Giveaway.

 

 

 

Star Wars Giveaway

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and The Pet Parade. We are having a Star Wars themed giveaway for May the Fourth Be With You Day!

I used Face In The Hole to make Sammy into Yoda.

And now for our giveaway-

We have a Star Wars themed catnip mat, 2 catnip mice dressed as Princess Leia and Darth Vader, a plastic Darth Vader head filled with our home grown nip and a Star Wars keychain. ( Sorry, Joanie is not included).To enter just leave a comment on this post by Monday at 9 PM ( EST). Winner will be announced Tuesday. Sorry I can only afford to send this in the US because the keychain is quite heavy.

And I have to show this old photo of Angel Lucy as Princess Leia. And yes, I ate the cookies. She peed on me that night too- the only time she ever did so I guess she was mad about this photo.

We will join Sabi Saturday tomorrow. Be sure to stop by to see our Kentucky Derby hats for Sunday Selfies.

PS: Don’t tell my Trekkie hubby we are having a Star Wars giveaway.

Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone! 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.)

This bunk bed was mine as a child and now The Great One plays with it when she visits. My mom made the crocheted blankets back in the1970’s to go with it.

I forgot to announce the winner of Penny’s contest yesterday. There were 394 pennies in the sugar bowl . Four-Legged Furballs‘ mom guessed the closest at 339. Thank you to all who played along.

Now for our selfies.
