#ChewyInfluencer

Hi everyone! We have a Chewy review today. We love scratchers around here so we were thrilled to test out the OurPets The Wave Curved Cat Scratcher.

*We received the  OurPets The Wave Curved Cat Scratcher from Chewy in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are our own.

Penny was more concerned with the Chewy box and called dibs. ( Bets on how soon she will pee in it?)

  Jinx loves it. Sammy does too , although, I think it is a little small for 17 pound Sammy.

It is currently on sale for $11.99, click here While you are there, be sure to stock up because orders over $49 ship free. And they always have speedy 1-2 day shipping. Most of the time, our orders arrive in less than 24 hours!

Books, Mewsic and More

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?And we are also joining Mewsic Moves Me (hosted by Curious as a Cathy, Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.)

I am sure many of you have heard of the DJ, Bobby Bones. Apparently my head has been buried in a litter box for years because I just learned of him. I love to read memoirs and self-help books and he has published one of each.

I started with his latest book, Fail Until You Don’t. His mantra is “Fight, Grind, Repeat.” And that is what he does and has done his entire life.  He has gotten to where he is in life through hard work day in and day out his entire life. He even continued working when he had his impacted wisdom teeth removed. He would take pain meds because he didn’t want to be loopy so he just kept going like an energizer bunny.

Bare Bones: I’m Not Lonely If You’re Reading This Book was published in 2016. He had a tough childhood, but didn’t let that stop him from achieving his dream of being on the radio. His father abandoned the family when he was young and his mom was an alcoholic who had him when she was age 15. Luckily, he had his Grandma and other positive role models in his life.  I was especially impressed that he doesn’t drink and never has. If you have heard of him then you probably love him too, but if not I highly recommend these two books. I am in awe of this man, I admire anyone who has a tough life and manages to succeed.

In addition to being an author, comedian and popular radio personality, he also has a band, The Raging Idiots, which is actually just him and another guy from the radio station, but they have raised a ton of money for charities Yes, he is a philanthropist too. So for my Mewsic choices I have some of their videos which are quite humorous.

1. Chick -Fil-A ( But it’s Sunday)

2. Friends In Low Places – Garth’s song, but he does a good job.

3. Hobby Lobby Bobby-

I hope Sammy posing with his book is Awww…worthy.

Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone! We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.

If you follow me on Facebook then you saw this yesterday.

This is what she did to the haunted House scratcher. I wonder what will happen to the Christmas Tree this year as it will be her first Christmas with us.

In her defense, Sammy decided to take a wall out, not realizing it was load bearing.

Next Sunday we will start our Tocktober selfies.

I am having a giveaway on Goodreads for Prancie’s Prayer. Thank you to all who have done reviews and helped spread the word, I truly appreciate all your help.

Remember Me Thursday

HI everyone! Today is a very special day, Remember Me Thursday. Now in the sixth year, it is a day to remember all those pets in shelters. Our friends at Lola The Rescued Cat and Three Chatty Cats are hosting the blog hop.

Three of my current kitties came from shelters, everyone else was given to me or just showed up.

Back in 2010, I went to adopt Sammy not knowing he had a sibling. The minute i saw her, I had to adopt her too. It still bothers me that their 3rd sibling had already been adopted. They had been together for almost 5 years at that point and it breaks my heart to see families separated ( human and fur).

My KaChoo went to the Rainbow Bridge in 2010 and I wanted another mitted tabby so I searched Petfinder and found Little Tiger in 2012. I renamed her KaTwo. I know why she was at the shelter for 2 years, because she has feline hyperesthesia. She can seem a bit scary when she is having a fit, chasing her tail, but most of the time, she is very sweet and loving.

My Angel Snowball also came from the same shelter. I saw her in 2012 and kept checking on her and was finally able to adopt her in 2013. Sadly, she had congestive heart failure and left us last year. She was from a hoarding situation and not into people, but she loved her Phoebe.

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop I am thankful for all the kitties I just wrote about and all that I have been blessed with.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day to go with this photo:

In this photo we see an older couple,
perhaps their bodies are no longer supple.
If you ask him what he sees, his eyes will open wide
and he will tell you that is his young bride.
If you ask her about her mate
she’ll tell you from day one she knew it was fate.
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.
1. A  ________________ will ___________________.
 
2. The best time of the day is __________________.
3. _________ is not my strong suit.
4. It’s all fun and games until _________.
And the winner of Prancie’s Prayer is Laila! I am having a Goodread giveaway starting on the 29th, I will post a link soon.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 123

Hi everyone! 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.

1. The last time I ____________was ____________________.
 
2. __________________isn’t ___________________.
3. _________ is a blessing in disguise.
4. My favorite word is _________.
My answers:
1. The last time I was on an airplane was in 1992 to go to Puerto Rico to leave on
our cruise. I am not complaining, I much prefer to be home.
2. My book isn’t selling as well as I had hoped. 🙁
3. A disappointment is a blessing in disguise. Sometimes. Whenever my car needs repairs and I can’t go somewhere, I think of it as God protecting me from a car accident.
4. My favorite word is YES. Usually in the form of yes, you can adopt another cat.

Joanie and Sammy thank you all for the birthday wishes.

They shared a kitty cake ( canned food) and got some Temptations for a present. Joanie was sad that her friend, The Great One wasn’t here so we will celebrate again on Tuesday.

Sammy’s day wasn’t as good as Joanie’s. He went to the vet with Prancie because they both were due for thyroid blood work.Bad timing on my part.

We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone !

What’s the matter? You act like you just saw a ghost. Oh, that is right, mom was testing out her new Halloween decorations that arrived today from Grandin Road. Dad let her order them for her birthday. They are pretty cool.

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Sammy is thankful he got his summer school certificate from Cat Scouts. He had to take 4 classes and pass 4 tests.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day to go with this photo:

Splashing in puddles is lots of fun
anyone can do it even a nun.
Such a  simple pleasure
that makes a memory to treasure.
Please pray and purr for Angel Phoebe’s Purrince, he has had a lot of health issues in his short life. To visit, click here.
