Phoebe’s Having a Giveaway

Happy Thursday everyone! I am so stinking mad at my Mom. As you know, I have been traveling with my purrince. Well, look at my cat grass:

002She forgot to water it again-phooey!

And Mom and Grammie went for pedicures today and Chinese food and took flat Madi. I have a flat me that would have loved to go too. Madi is lots of fun and I love my Grammie so very much. 013 015005And here is poor Flat me at home.

Lucy is still not right, but Mom is having a hard time medicating her. She eats some food with the probiotic powder, but she doesn’t want the paste with the probiotic- I don’t blame her, it smells very much bad.

I am having a giveaway 011of this tunnel. It is brand new with tags, Mom just put it on my head because she is an idiot she thought it would be cute . I will also have her make some crocheted toys to go with it. Just leave a comment to enter and I will announce a winner on Sunday. You can comment every day and feel free to tell me how pretty I am.

I am very excited the flat Sammy of One Spoiled Cat will be arriving soon.

Tomorrow is a special day when everyone is going to write about their pets that have gone to the bridge. RainbowBridgeRemembranceDay [500px]

Madi Monday

Happy Monday everyone! Today is fun and games day and we have been having lots of fun. Flat Cat Scout Madi was here all weekend. It was rainy so Joanie played Fish with her ( Madi won)

003Phoebe showed Madi her bulletin board of her purrince:002I hope we didn’t bore her.

Our friend Billy the Time Cat sent Phoebe and I a belated birthday gift. His Mom makes really cool items out of beads and she made us each a Dr. Who coaster:004She is very talented to do all the intricate work. My big fingers can’t even text with a cell phone. Here is the link to her Etsy store: https://www.etsy.com/nz/shop/TCAshop . She crochets too and has some nice blankets for kitties.

Yesterday our friend Madi had a rodeo and Snowball and KaTwo got to join in the fun:
Lucy and I recommended Doreen Tovey’s books when we first started blogging, but now that we have more than 2 followers we thought we would again.049
For 50 years, she wrote books about life in rural England with her husband, Siamese cats and a donkey too. I have always wanted to go to England to see her cottage even though she passed away in 2008. I read a website about Siamese Cats that also has updates about her books, etc. :
It was through that site that I came in contact with Ray Evans* who lives in Rowberrow, England. Sadly, Doreen’s cottage was torn down by the new owners. He very kindly sent me some personal photos he had of Doreen and her cottage.

If you haven’t read any of her books, you are in for a treat. Most of them have been reprinted and are available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
