Friendly Fill-Ins Week 150

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. Thank you to all who participate. Don’t forget to add your link to the hop so everyone can visit you.

1. I am allergic to ____________________.
2. My taxes __________________.
3. I don’t tell many people _________.
4. When it rains, _________.
My answers:
1. I am allergic to penicillin. I get allergy shots for allergies to mold, cats and trees. I was never that affected by them, but since getting the shots, I don’t get sinus infections so they must help.
2. My taxes are still not done. My hubby gathers everything and sends it to the accountant, but hasn’t done it yet despite my reminders.
3. I don’t tell many people my weight. I actually tell the nurse at the Dr.’s office not to tell me so I am not sure, but it isn’t good.
4. When it rains, I just want to stay inside and nap with my cats.

This week is also the Pet Photo Fails Blog Hop hosted by Melissa’s Mochas, Mysteries and Meows in memory of Roby Sweet.
I was trying to get a photo of Trouble in the “stuff” box so I put a treat in it. It didn’t go as I planned though.

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

Starting Sunday we will have three weeks of Catburry Bunny Audition selfies. Here is a photo of  Angel Lucy from 2015.

And Angel Stinky.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 22

Hi everyone! Before we get to the Fill-Ins, I want to give you an update on Phoebe’s blood work. Her thyroid is now fine with 1/2 pill twice a day. She does have the start of kidney disease though. Unfortunately, I wasn’t home when the vet called so that is all I know for now. When I talk to the vet we will discuss the diet.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 22. Be sure to add your link on McGuffy’s Reader.
Fill-ins:
1. My favorite store is _____________________.
2. An unanswered prayer I am thankful for is _______________________.

3. At Halloween, I                                       .

4. I                        the supernatural, because                                      .

My answers:

  1. My favorite store is MICHAEL’S CRAFT STORE.
  2. An unanswered prayer I am thankful for is THAT THE MAN I DATED BEFORE I MET MY HUBBY MOVED TO FLORIDA AND STAYED. I HAD PRAYED HE WOULD MOVE BACK HERE.
  3. At Halloween, I HAVE THE HO– USE ALL DECORATED EVEN THOUGH WE NEVER GET TRICK OR TREATERS.
  4. I BELIEVE IN the supernatural, because I HAVE READ MANY BOOKS BY PSYCHICS THAT DO SPEAK TO THE DEAD AND THEY SURE CONVINCED ME.

One prayer we do hope gets answered is for Phoebe’s Purrince. His latest vet recommended euthanasia despite his being healthy. He is always welcome to live with us as an option, but this vet doesn’t think re-homing would work. If you have any suggestions please visit them. And please pray.

We are also praying for everyone to be safe from Hurricane Matthew.

The word today for #JHC is Monster. stinky

My Stinky was not afraid of our Frankenstein Monster. I miss my Stinky.

Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day

Hi everyone! Phoebe’ s post has been preempted today for Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day. Last year, when we first posted on this day, I had no idea that soon after 3 of my furbabies would be at The Rainbow Bridge for this year’s remembrance day.

Thank you to Ann of Zoolatry for these beautiful graphics and for always making a special one for each pet that leaves us. And thank you to Deb Barnes of Zee and Zoey for creating this special day to remember our beloved pets ( not that we would ever forget).

A Hop and a Challenge

I have been nominated by Annie of McGuffy’s Reader, to participate in the “Three Day Quote Challenge”. The rules of the challenge are simple. They are as follows:

1. Post for three consecutive days.
2. Choose and share one or three quotes each day.
3. Challenge three additional bloggers each day.

Today is Day 1 of my challenge and because I  completed a quote challenge 

in September where I used all cat quotes, I thought I would do some other favorite quotes. I love quotes and have a Pinterest page for my favorites.
My quote for today is from Eldridge Cleaver ,   “If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem” .  I just said this to my Mom yesterday when she was telling me I need to learn to mind my own business about cats that are not mine. I currently have a feral waiting to get spayed next week ( long story).

On Day 1, I now nominate the following bloggers:
For Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop, I am cheating a little. I didn’t make this art, but I am eagerly anticipating the both of these graphics on canvas from Vision Bedding and once they arrive, I will be having a giveaway so one lucky winner can get something custom-made of your choice. Thank you again, Ann of Zoolatry
for these: Stinky FOREVER
Over the Rainbow Bridge, Lucy
I have some other graphics that some of you made for me that I hope to have put on canvas someday too.

Selfie Sunday and a Giveaway

Hi everyone! I am doing a giveaway today , but first I told Sammy I would tell you about The Cardwood Derby. As you know, he is a Cat Scout and every year they make their own vehicles for a derby. It doesn’t have to be a car so Mom he made a Dr. Who TARDIS.

004Stinky had even helped.

010Sammy says on TV they say it is bigger on the inside, but this one is not. Dad even gave him a spin in it, here is the youtube video:

Here is the giveaway- something for your Mom and Dad and something for you. There is a mini coloring book and scrapbook.

015Extra smelly crocheted toys, I think there is some valerian in these. The pink one is a small pillow and this other one is a “happy pill”. Comment for a chance to win, you can comment daily through Wednesday for more chances.

Grammie is going to watch us 2 days this week, I am so excited! I love her so very much. She was here on Thursday so I did a dance on my pole for her and she gave me a dollar. I would have done it for free, but I didn’t want to hurt her feelings and not take the dollar.

007Joanie wants to do a tummy selfie.
