Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and The Pet Parade.

 

Here is our Christmas card. I will be mailing them out to everyone on the exchange list that Claire of Swiss Cats was so kind to put together. Please feel free to have a copy.

Thank you to all who have already sent us cards by email and snail mail. I will be displying them on Christmas Eve on the blog.

I usually get a photo of everyone, but each one ends up so small that I just chose a few this year.

Be sure to visit tomorrow, we will have part 2 of our Selfie Sunday Letters to Santa.

We Are Hopping this Saturday

Happy Saturday everyone! Today we are tripple hopping again. My photo is for 2 of the hops though. The #52 Snapshots of Life is “dream” so I have been taking photos of my kitties sleeping this week and possibly dreaming. I used Pizap to make a collage ( Lucy-Sammy-Phoebe) then I added a frame for Athena’s Caturday Blog Hop.

Dream

We are also joining Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade. Have a nice day and be sure to visit Phoebe tomorrow- she has a fun contest lined up.

Selfie Sunday with Phoebe

Happy Sunday everyone! This is Phoebe! I hate having to wait a whole week to visit everyone-Phooey- I want more posts per week!!! Please beg my mom to let me have another day.

I have had a busy week again this week. Luckily, I got Joanie to give Snowball her bath :004This week was Hanukkah and even though we are not Jewish, mom lets us celebrate so here I am spinning the dreidel: 008We play with catnip instead of gold coins 🙂

I also had to help mom wrap presents: 018and even though mom won’t let me comment, I did read your blogs all week: 005  I am so excited!!! I just love Christmas Eve and Day. Mom always leaves us out cookies and milk on Christmas Eve, that is the only time she does that for us- I wonder why she doesn’t every night? And my Grammie will be here Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and you all know how very much I love her.

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year! I am sending you all a kiss under the mistletoe- don’t worry, it is a fake one because my worrywart of a mom knows the real stuff is poisonous.

008MOL!

Starting today we are showing our costumes for this year so here it is: 011Don’t I look stunning as Elsa from Frozen? Want to know a secret? Mom’s niece had this Marie Antoinette costume that mom is trying to sell for her on Craigslist so I borrowed it.

I am hopping with Rascal and Rocco today: Grab button for Pet Parade Blog Hopand The Cat on My Head Sunday Selfies hop too! I hope a belfie is OK: Cat4

Great Book by a Fellow Blogger

Happy Friday everyone! Today is book review day and I have a great read for you and right now it is free. Lucy doesn’t want to review a book today, but she found something else to tell you about that is also free. Lucy and I love Grumpy Cat and we were thrilled to find a template to make a Grumpy Cat pumpkin. I haven’t actually carved my pumpkin yet, I think I am going to get a fake carvable one so it will last forever.

Here is the free template link:http://www.petsmart.com/featured-shops/friskies/cat-36-catid-800387. Last year my friend gave me a beautiful pumpkin made by her friends at Snowy Valley Gifts: https://www.etsy.com/shop/SnowyValleyGifts?ref=l2-shopheader-name . 054.

My recommendation is for fellow blogger of Athena Cat Goddess, http://www.athenacatgoddess.com/ .She is currently offering her book for free: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008UW3J08# . If you don’t have a Kindle, there is a link on her blog to get a free Kindle app. for your computer. I only have a cheap Polaroid tablet, but I have a Nook and a Kindle on it ( I love books almost as much as cats).

Marie Symeou’s book, The Cat Years: How My Cat Soulmates Saved Me is an excellent book about cats that have been part of her life. This book pulled me right in as a cat lover that also suffers from social anxiety. Her honesty about her feelings is touching as well as how she is able to communicate with cats on a soul level. I have written a longer review on Amazon, but it may take a couple days to show up. I hope everyone chooses to take advantage of the free book offer and decides to purchase some of her other books ( I purchased the Kindle version of her book on Athena).

Here is Lucy’s Hissing Booth from last year: blog12

Make sure you come back tomorrow as we are having a giveaway for Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Now to the book reviews: Lucy loved Evil Cat, a bunch of cartoons about an evil cat torturing humans and dogs.009

I enjoyed The Cat Who Came Back for Christmas. It was more than just a story about a cat, it was also about the autistic child. I really had no idea how hard it was to raise a child with autism. Many times I have been out shopping or out to eat and get annoyed when a child starts acting up. I always have bad thought about what awful parents the child has-thankfully, I have never said anything to them. The next time that happens, I will have more compassion like Ben, the cat who befriends the boy. Here is the Amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/Cat-Who-Came-Back-Christmas-ebook/dp/B0095ZMF4K/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1411511066&sr=1-1&keywords=the+cat+who+came+back+for+christmas .Have a great day everyone!
