Saturday is Art Day

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade today. For our art, I used and chose a Fall background and a  frame.

And for P.S.Annie’s 19-Somethin’ Challenge the question is: Is there another song that makes you reminiscent of your teenage years? No particular song, but anytime I hear a song by Boston, Journey, Chicago or Billy Idol it reminds me of my teen years.

October is almost here and Penny’s boyfriend Toby told us about a fun challenge we are going to join.  Here is the link.



Caturday Saturday!

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop today. Phoebe wanted to be patriotic for the 4th of July so she used to face paint some flags on her cute little face.

And I want to show you one of my completed button art projects:

DSCF1752 I was able to find one more package of blue buttons at a different Michael’s store, but it wasn’t enough so I made the bottom with green and tan to be like sand and grass.

Cat World Domination Day

Hi everyone! I am sorry that yesterday’s post was next to impossible to read. When it comes to technical issues, I am useless. I think it is readable now, but still not the way it should be, all the sidebars are missing.  I am working on it though.

Phoebe was miffed that she missed Cat World Domination Day yesterday so I went to and made a globe collage of her. This is our entry for Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop.


If you haven’t had a chance to check out the great items at the Winnie’s Wish Auction, here is a link.

Friendly Hopping

Another hopping Saturday. I can’t believe by this time next week, Christmas will already be over. This week for Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop, I used to make Joanie in her elf costume into a cartoon. I am using this photo for The Lazy Pit Bull’s #52 Snapshots of Life, the theme is “friend” and Joanie is my friend. She is always on my lap or near me and she sleeps with me most night. I am lucky to have so many kitty friends and I am lucky to have all of you cat lovers as my friends as well.


Thank you all for the beautiful cards you have sent us by email and snail mail. I will be doing a post on Christmas Eve to show them all off.

Hopping Saturday and a Challenge

Happy Saturday everyone- time to get  hopping. I am once again using the same photo for 2 hops.WrrOowtThe Lazy Pit Bull’s 52 Snapshots theme is “Nature”. My kitties are indoors so we don’t have any nature shots. I saw this rainbow on and decided to add a rainbow to Phoebe’s photo because her purrince calls her his rainbow purrincess. I am also joining Athena’s Caturday Blog Hop with this photo too.

52 Snapshots of Life

Our friends at Critters in the Cottage ( )

challenged us to find 8 photos that bring us happiness. I LOVE photos, some make me sad of kitties that have passed, but many photos make me happy. I would have included one with my Mom, but she doesn’t like her photo on Facebook or anywhere. Most of my photos are kitties, but there are some humans too.

wedpic26#1 My niece and her husband–they got married 9-7-2013 , they just  bought a home and are expecting their first child in October. I am happy that she is getting all she wants out of life and has a wonderful man to spend it with.

007#2 My hubby makes me happy and the fact that he loves the cats and our life with them.

#3 008My Silly Phoebe who is the real owner of the blog.

#4 003My Joanie cat ( named after my Mom). Here she is recreating The Nutcracker Ballet.

#5 houseOur House-My hubby lived here since 1980, it was built in 1947 for his Aunt and Uncle. I have been here since 1992 and we never plan to move. Just enough room for us and 15 cats.

#6 008My Sammy, a Mama’s Boy that sleeps on my pillows every night.

#7 002My Lucy, she lets me dress her up all the time and is usually right next to me or on my lap.

#8 001Prancie, she is one of several of our kitties that showed up at our door and I am happy she ( and the rest of them) did.

It was a challenge to limit to 8 photos when we have 15 kitties. Please join the fun and post 8 Happy photos on your blog too!

Saturday is Art Day

Happy Saturday everyone! Today we are joining in Athena’s Caturday Blog Hop. I used a photo of my beloved KaChoo who passed away 11-27-2010. I went with again because I was pressed for time and already knew how to use this one.

I used “funny photos” -pawprints frame to edit it. She left pawprints on my heart and her favorite color was blue. It has been almost 4 years and I still think of her every day. I wish I had been blogging back then. The support of all these kitties lovers who understand the connection we have with our cats would have helped. The day she passed was truly the worst of my life and I have lost loved ones, but for some reason this was so much harder.

Thank you to Athena for hosting the blog hop:

Make sure you come back tomorrow for Phoebe’s first fun contest. Have a great day everyone!
