Penny’s Tips Volume 37

Hi everyone. Penny has a tip for you today, but first I want to apologize to all who tried to visit on Monday and couldn’t get to the post. I updated some plug-ins and something went wrong. GoDaddy was able to restore and get the blog back , but so far Monday’s post is missing. If it doesn’t return, I will redo it because I want all the letters for the A-Z challenge.

Now on to Penny. 

Hi everyone! I have a great tip for you today. You can use pennies to have a contest. You can fill a jar and have people guess how many are in the jar. I am having a contest today, Emmy said I can give away a copy of her book, I Am Not A Skunk. Whoever guesses how many pennies are in this sugar bowl is the winner. Sorry, my cheap mom said we can only mail in the USA. If more than one of you guesses correctly, I will draw names. You have until Friday at 9 PM ( EST) to put your guess on this post. I will announce the winner on Saturday’s post. Good luck!

And today is T day for The A-Z Blogging Challenge. T is for toys and to save money you can make your own.  As you know, I crochet toys and sew catnip mats, but you don’t even have to crochet or sew to make toys. You can take a sock, fill it with nip and tie the end. Check Pinterest for more ideas too.

 

Penny’s Tips

Hi everyone! I have a repeat tip for you today. I just want to remind you that Pennies are great for filling plastic Easter eggs. I prefer nip in mine, but the kiddos will like the pennies.

Today we are focusing on the letter N in the A-Z Blogging Challenge. To see more blogs participating in the A-Z hop, click here. N is for nail clipping. To save money , you can clip your cat’s nails at home. I do most of my cats nails except for KaTwo and Polar Bear- even the vet techs can’t do theirs unless they are drugged. If you have never done it before, you can ask them to show you the next time you are at the vets. There are also a lot of videos on youtube that show you how.

The Catburry Bunny Auditions- Part 3

Hi everyone! Today is the last of our Catburry Bunny Auditions for this year. I saved the most difficult for last. I couldn’t even get the ears on Polar Bear and Noel.

Nellie was very cooperative

I used my mom’s cell phone to take a selfie with this cool Easter Bunny at Michael’s. I wonder if anyone is going to buy it for  $275?  I am 5’10” so this is a big bunny.

A-Z Blogging Challenge: B

Hi everyone! Penny is here today with tips, but not Penny’s tips. These are tips to keep your cat healthy and save money. Today we are focusing on the letter B.

To see more blogs participating in the A-Z hop, click here.

B is for brushing. If you brush your cat’s teeth at least 3 times a week, you can prevent dental issues. This is better for your cat’s health and your wallet because dentals at the vet and extractions are costly.

I am guilty of not doing this, but I am going to try. I know already some cats like KaTwo and Polar Bear won’t let me, but I will try on Joanie and Sammy. As you can see from the photo, Penny is a good candidate too. Every time my cats go for a dental, they come home with a toothbrush and a sample of toothpaste. I found a great website that gives instructions. You don’t even need a kit, you can dilute hydrogen peroxide in water ( 25% peroxide to 75% water) , dip a cloth in it and rub it on your cat’s teeth. For more information, click here.

Unfortunately, some cats are more prone than others to plaque buildup so may still require dentals, but hopefully, less often.

Brushing your cat’s fur at least once a week is also a good idea. The more you brush, the less they ingest which means fewer furballs.

Penny’s Tips Volume 36

Hi everyone! Did you miss me? I haven’t been able to give a tip in a month. Now I won’t be getting bumped because of Chewy because they ended their influencer program so you will see a lot more of me.

You probably want to know why I have on this joker hat. It is because mom is an idiot I have the perfect April Fool’s Day joke for you to use on someone.

Take a penny and glue it to the sidewalk then have fun watching people try to pick it up. Just be careful not to get glue on your paws.

See you next week!

Penny’s Tips Volume 35

Hi everyone!Did you miss me last week when mom bumped my post for a Chewy review?

I am hiding in this tunnel because mom said she wants to start pinching pennies. Can you believe it? She even found a website with tips on how to pinch them! It is called The Prudent Penny Pincher. It is similar to the other website I told you about. Mom is all excited because she found a bunch of Grinch themed recipes on there. And lots of decorating ideas. She claims she won’t pinch me, but I am not taking my chances.

Hi everyone! We have a yummy food to tell you about today.

*We received  Tiny Tiger Chunks in EXTRA Gravy Beef & Poultry Recipes Variety Pack Grain-Free Canned Cat Food from Chewy in exchange for a fair review.

Tiny Tiger Chunks are grain free and have extra gravy. My cats usually just lick the gravy out of most foods like this, but they ate most of the chunks with this food. As you can see from these photos, it was a hit.
