Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am always thankful for my family and kitties, but this week I have extra thankfuls. First off, I won Mudpie’s Zoomie’s 500! I guessed that #17 would win The Daytona 500. Funny thing, I just picked 17 because my hubby usually chooses that number because it is on a Star Trek ship.
I am also thankful to Purrseidon. She has been reading children’s books on youtube and she read Prancie’s Prayer. It is the cutest video ever. Please check it out. And I highly recommend all her other videos too. Thew Great One has been enjoying them.
We are also joining Sammy’s Poetry Day. Here is my poem to go with this photo prompt provided by Teddy’s mom.
He returned to his truck after fishing at the lake,
but it wouldn’t start, poor guy couldn’t catch a break.
The cost of towing was more than the value of the truck
so he decided to leave it to rot in the muck.
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and my co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

Hi everyone. Thank you all for the kind words, prayers and purrs you left for us for Prancie. I knew when I left the house Wednesday morning to go to jury duty that it was the day Prancie would leave us. I was scraping the ice off my car windows and heard the Phoebe bird. I don’t usually hear it this time of year. I knew that meant Phoebe had come for her friend.
The next day, I was driving over to visit The Great One and Prancie’s song was on the radio. I know that was a sign too. Prancie’s song is a disco song from the 1970’s and is rarely on the radio. I have chosen that for my Mewsic this week. I used to change the words and sing to her ” Do a little dance……Prancie Pants”. Up until a few years ago, she did prance around like she was dancing.
Hi everyone! We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop. This week we are doing something special with the hope of helping our friends at Colehaus Cats. 2019 was a bad year for them and there is still a possibility they could lose their home. You can read about it on their blog. Click here.
On their blog, there is a donate button and an Amazon link to their wishlist. My kitties and I are offering you all some goodies if you can find it in your heart to donate to them.If you donate at least $10, we will send you something of your choice. This is what we have to offer-
Emmy has a lot of her books left.
Prancie only has 2 copies left to offer.
And Joanie is posing with 4 fabric choices for catnip mats. We have a Dr. Who, a white with tuxie cats on it, Mermaid kitties and Dr. Seuss characters. We only have enough for one of each. Be sure to read comments before specifying a pattern to be sure it isn’t spoken for already.
I apologize, but I can only afford to ship in the USA.
If you donate $20, choose 2 items, etc. You get the idea. Please help our friends keep their kitty family together. Once you donate, let me know and I will email you for your mailing information. I know everyone is broke from the holidays, but please find it in your heart to help. Thank you.
PS: Please share this post so more people can help. Thank you.
Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays That is all we are joining this week because I have a cold and I am all tired out from the Christmas festivities.
As many of you know, Prancie appeared at our outdoor nativity in January 2005. It used to be on the other side of the house at a door we rarely use. This year, we put it by the main entrance to our house. Knowing it was going to be Prancie’s last Christmas, my hubby wanted a photo of her out there. She wanted no part of it and made for the house as quickly as possible, but I got one decent shot.
If you are not familiar with her book, you can click here to see it on Amazon.
Penny will be here with an important tip tomorrow. Plus she will be modeling her New Year’s Eve gown.
Prancie and I want to thank all of you who voted for Prancie’s Prayer yesterday. Also thanks to those that shared on social media. Your help is greatly appreciated. Voting goes until August 21st so we won’t know the results for quite some time.
Hi everyone! Penny is feeling overworked after posting tips for the past few weeks so we gave her the day off. Prancie and I have a favor to ask of you. Prancie’s Prayer was nominated for a 2019 Reader’s Choice Award at TCK Publishing in the Children’s Book category. Voting is from now until August 21st, only one vote per person so we only need you to do this one time. We would greatly appreciate your vote. And if you could spread the word for others to vote too. Here is the link to voting. Click here
Children’s books are on page 11 , you can vote in other categories if you want, but I figured I would let you know where to find it. Thank you.
Brody is here today to ask a favor. His lady love, Leia of The Whiskeratti has been sick. She needs some tests to find out what us wrong. Her mom set up a GoFundMe page. We know everyone can’t afford to donate, but purrs and prayers are free.
Prancie has agreed to help out, she is letting us have 5 copies of Prancie’s Prayer. For anyone that donates $10 today, November 14th, we will send you a book. Sorry, we can only afford to ship in the USA. Just donate on the GoFund page and let us know in the comments. Mom wishes she could do more, but her sewing machine is currently broken so she can’t make catnip mats like the last time.
I apologize if you are sick of reading about Prancie’s Prayer. I want to thank everyone who has purchased it and/or written a review. I was thrilled when I check my publisher’s home page and saw it listed as a best seller for October. Click here.
As most of you know, it is a children’s ( ages 3-7) picture book set at Christmastime. It is based on how our cat Prancie joined our family. She really did appear at our outdoor nativity. I always tell people she went to Jesus for help.
I started blogging because I wanted to help cats by sharing knowledge I have learned from living with them. I also hoped to make money blogging so I could donate to rescue groups. I will admit that I have not made much blogging, I have only had 2 paid posts in over four years of blogging.. I have decided to donate all my royalties from October-December to Boston’s Forgotten Felines. I get just under $2 on every book sold ( except those purchased through me).
I chose this Boston’s Forgotten Felines because I have been following on of the volunteers, Joni Nelson, on Facebook for years. She is out at 3 AM daily feeding ferals in Boston. Many people treat her badly and try to poison the cats. Many of the cats are friendly and not actually feral, she tries to rescue them and find them homes, but there are so many. Boston gets very cold in the winter and I wish they had a place they could bring them inside , but all they can do is make shelters for them and feed them.
Here are the links to places you can purchase Prancie’s Prayer. Please share this post and help spread the word.
HI everyone! I will let Penny give her tip in a minute. Today is the one year anniversary of Phoebe leaving us. We miss her every day, the house just isn’t the same without her. Her little harness dress still hangs on the hook by the door like Tiny Tim’s crutch.
I have been saving this story for today. Last year, when I kept bringing Phoebe to the vet for fluids and checkups, her vet was expecting a baby. Guess what she named her daughter? When I was there a few months ago she told me that when I kept coming in with Phoebe it struck her that should be her baby’s name.
Now time for Penny’s tip-
Hi everyone! Mom paid me in silvervine so excuse my pose, she caught me rolling in it.
My tip is if you don’t have a ruler, you can use pennies to measure. There are 16 pennies in one foot ( each one has a diameter of .75″ ).
Do you like Mom’s ruler? It is a Peanuts one that she has had since she was a kid.
