It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! Before we get started, we want to give POTP to Sawyer of The Kitties Blue. Teddy’s mom made this nice badge for him. He needs a lot of purrs and prayers as he has seizures quite often and meds don’t seem to prevent them.

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday What are YOU Reading?

Rene (It’s All About the Cats) told me about a new book, Bailey No Ordinary Cat by Erin Merryn.  I am so glad she did. It is a small book filled with photos of the author and her 3 little girls with Bailey. I always think Joanie is so good with The Great One and she is, but Bailey was even more patient. In one photo he is being fed with a spoon while sitting in a high chair. You can check out a lot of his photos on his Instagram page, click here.  Even my hubby enjoyed the photos and was amazed at Bailey’s patience. Sadly, Bailey passed away a few months before the book came out, but he can live on through these adorable photos. I am sure each one will make you say awwww…..

This is a different Bailey than Bailey the Boat Cat, he also has a book.

 

 

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Sammy and I are thankful that we got to meet his girlfriend’s mother. Sammy’s girlfriend is Cat Scout Maggie and her mom was in Massachusetts so she stayed overnight. She is very nice. Sammy got lots of hugs and smoochies from her.

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:

Such a cute baby
arms open wide just like mom
time to waddle now

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Sammy is thankful to be coneless. And I am thankful that his biopsy came back and his nose is fine. It was called an unspecified inflammation ( probably from too many whaps from the other kitties).

I am also thankful that I got accepted into The Cat Writers’ Association. Special thanks toLola and Lexy’s mom, Dawn for sponsoring me.

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:

I wonder who lives here?
I am sure it is no one to fear.
Maybe it is the Grinch’s summer home
or maybe it belongs to a gnome.
I know it is not mine
and with that, I am fine.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

1. I could use some suggestions for _________________________.
 

2. I never refuse _________________.

 
3. I hope _________ never changes.
4. I would rate _________ a 10 out of 10.

Caturday Saturday

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

More art from The Great One. I helped with the 2 shark ones because she doesn’t like sharks, all the rest are hers. They were wooden ornaments, but I changed them to key rings to give to her Dad and grandpas for Father’s Day. She decided to keep a mermaid for herself 🙂

Sammy thanks you all for the POTP.

2. So far, the highlight of my year has been seeing my great-niece tapping away in her first dance recital. Seeing I Am Not A Skunk get published is right up there too.
3. Cleaning takes up too much time. It needs to get done though.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

I am thankful KaTwo is still doing well since her dire diagnosis last September ( knock on wood- 3 times)..

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:

Let us survey
how can we torture mom today?
Once she puts on a clean shirt,
your breakfast you can start to spurt.
When she puts us down for a nap,
it will be a fine time for a crap.
And if she talks to anyone on her cell
we must be sure to yell and yell.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

1. I hope _________________________ never goes out of business.
 
2. So far, the highlight of my year has been__________________.
 


3. _________ takes up too much time.
4. If I didn’t have to sleep, I would spend that extra time _________.
 
One more thing- Today is Sammy’s big day to get some teeth removed and a nose biopsy. All purrs and prayers are appreciated. Thank you.

Yaheetech Cat Tree Review

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. We are most thankful to have gotten to purchase a fantastic cat tree at a discount.

*Disclosure- We purchased a Yaheetech Cat Tree at a discount in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are our own.

  The tree arrived very quickly- two days. I took everything out to make sure it was all there- and it was! I can’t tell you how many times I have ordered something only to have it be missing a part. And all the holes were drilled through which is a miracle. My hubby usually has to get the drill out , but this time he didn’t have to and I actually put it all together by myself- well, with the help of Joanie and Sammy.The only tool needed was an Alan wrench which was was included. The entire tree was assembled in less than 30 minutes- by me! I realize for many of you that is not a big deal, but I was quite proud of myself. And trust me, if I can do it- any one of you can do it too.

Joanie inspecting the first part. As you can see, the condo part has plenty of room for Joanie. That section is 13.4″ x 16.5″ x 11.2’’ (LxWxH).

All the posts are covered in sturdy sisal rope. And the rest in covered in a plush carpet. The base board is very wide to insure stability, it is : 25″ x 19.3″

It also came with a safety strap that I am not planning to use as it is already quite sturdy. Sammy is 17 pounds of pure love and he barely rocked the tree when he jumped on it.

Sammy was lucky to get a turn because Joanie thinks it belongs to her and her Gremmie. I assembled it in the bedroom so I could put the pieces on the bed instead of the floor. I had planned to move it into the living room, but now I may leave it in the bedroom so I don’t break Joanie’s heart.

The only small part that would only be good for a kitten is the tunnel which measures, 8 inches wide and 9 inches long. Joanie decided it was the perfect size for Gremmie.

I am very pleased with this cat tree. The regular price for this 62 inch tree is only $73.99 which includes shipping. They also have many other sizes and styles and a wide selection of colors. Our tree is the Yaheetech 62-inch Cat Tree Condo with Scratching Post Plush Perch and Tunnel, Cat Tower Furniture Gray. ( Click the name to be redirected to the product on Amazon). They had trees 51 inches -79 inches. I know many cats like to be up high but I chose the 62 inch instead of the 79inch because the 79 inch one would be to wide in our small house.

Yaheetech also has a Youtube channel showing many of their products, including assembling the cat trees. Click here.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

I am thankful that I got to meet Lola and Lexy’s mom, Dawn. She is very sweet and a lot of fun.

Sammy is thankful that it is corn season. ( Don’t worry, he only had 2 bites).

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:

This art show is a bit odd,
I guess you could call it mod.
I like this polar bear in a blizzard,
but the artist is no wizard.
If you want to visit one of the great galleries
Making sculptures out of litter and pee
now that takes creativity.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.  Sandee, #2 is for you.

1. I would love to be a personal assistant to ___________________________.

2. If I had a boat, I would name it ________________________.

3. I want to improve my _________.

4. Surprises are _________.
One more thing- Our prayers are with all affected by the storms in the central part of the US.
