Hi everyone! Thank you for all the purrs and prayers for Sammy. We got good news yesterday. He has a murmur, but not a gallop. Gallops are very bad so I am relieved. He can also get his dental now. I actually think I am going to bring him to this new place where he got his echocardiogram- they are amazing. It is an hour away, but he travels well.
Hi everyone! My post got bumped last week for a review and I didn’t even get to try the new Catit bed. Something about my reputation for peeing on cardboard made mom think I would pee on that too.
I am still going through my pennies. Did you know some 1955 pennies are worth $1,000? They are called double die pennies and were minted in Philadelphia so if you find one with a D ( for Denver) or S ( for San Fransisco) under the date then you don’t have a good one. The good ones have no letter under the 1955. You will also notice the inscription doubled on it too. In the coming weeks, I will tell you about other pennies worth a lot of money. Of course, I am the most valuable Penny there is-that is what Mom says.

I am currently reading. I.M. : A Memoir by Isaac Mizrahi. As most of you know he is a designer, talk show host and much more. I am enjoying reading about his childhood and how he was always interested in fashion and design. Being gay in his Jewish neighborhood made things difficult for him in addition to being overweight. I am glad he was able to get through that and become successful.
It was a funny coincidence, I just got some sheets at TJ Maxx and they happen to be designed by him. I had to have these sheets- the kitties look like Angel Phoebe in her polka-dotted bikini.
Today is Wear Orange For Crockett Day in memory of The Lone Star Cats’ sweet Crockett who died tragically this week.
For the art, Brody used Lunapic cartoon and tinted himself orange:
Prancie went au naturale in her orange furs:
Joanie is wearing orange beads:
Sammy is sporting his orange tie:
And KaTwo has an orange hat:
I was also saddened to see that Grumpy Cat went to The Rainbow Bridge, she was only 7.
Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.
I am thankful for this surprise shipment of yarn that arrived last week with a sweet note from Purrseidon thanking me for the copy of I Am Not A Skunk that I sent to her.
And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

Hi everyone! Poor Penny is getting bumped from her tips today so we could show you what we won from Sweet Purrfections. We won this at the end of March and it was delivered right away. I left it in the box for my hubby to put together, but he has been busy with outdoor tasks. Then I remembered that I didn’t need him to assemble this- no tools are even needed.
*Disclosure-I won a Catit Vesper Cottage. I am not required to do a review. All opinions are my own.
It was idiot proof! You just slide the pieces together like a fun puzzle. It comes in oak and white. I chose white because I have a white bookcase and a shelf in the bedroom which is where this piece will be located.
Joanie and Sammy were eager to test it out when it was on the bed. As you can see, it has 2 levels, and came with a cushion for each level. It is very sturdy and I like the little cat head carved in the top.

Hi everyone! Thank you all for the purrs and prayers for Sammy.
Things did not go as planned. Sammy did not get his dental because the vet heard a “gallop” in his heartbeat. She didn’t hear it when he got his blood work 2 weeks ago. He will need an ultrasound of his heart before he can go under anesthesia. I am glad the vet chose to be cautious.
I still have no answers on the nose. She numbed it and tried to get a fluid sample, but there was no fluid. She couldn’t take a sample unless he was under anesthesia so that had to wait. She took an x-ray, but there “expert” needs to review it.
Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins. Please leave your link (at bottom of post) here or at my co-host’s Four-Legged Furballs. You can also answer in the comment section. Thank you to all who participate. Don’t forget to add your link to the hop so everyone can visit you.

HI everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Prancie is thankful for the enormous package of prizes that arrived last week. As you know, she won the Easter Bonnet contest at One Spoiled Cat.
She won this great hat-
And all this-
She loves her unicorn. We have to hide it when The Great One is here because she will want it.
Look at all these treats! And she is not planning to share.
She did give this cute pen to her Dad though. Thank you to Teddy and his mom for all these goodies. And thanks to all who voted for Prancie in the contest.
Prancie is so happy that she agreed to write today’s poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:

I am a day late for Sabi Saturday, but here is my entry. (Sabi Saturday is a hop where you show something old, repurposed or upcycled. I wish more bloggers would join this fun hop.)
I was close to my Great Aunt. When she passed away in 1988, she left me her photo collection and this war ration book from WWII was in there too.
