Hopping Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays, McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks and Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

My Spark is a quote from Louise Hay: “Remember, you have been criticizing yourself for years and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.” I think I will give it a try and I hope you all do too.

About a month ago, I told you about a memoir I read by Joyce Maynard titled The Best of Us. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to read another memoir of hers published 20 years ago. At Home in the World was also a great book. When the author was only 19 years old, she had a one year affair with JD Salinger. After reading this, it is clear the Salinger was an egotistical—— ( words I can’t write on my blog). This only covers a small part of her memoir, but I found the entire book interesting.

Joanie hasn’t shown her tummy in quite a while so she thought you may all want to see it.

Penny will be back with one of her tips tomorrow.



Thankful Phoebe

Hi everyone! Look what my Grammie brought me yesterday. I love her so very, very much. I saw her Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday! And I am going to see her today too. I am most thankful for that so I am joining PepiSmartDog’s blog hop.

We figured out why Joanie didn’t want to model her tummy on Tuesday,  she thinks she is a big star now because they showed her tummy on Katzenworld.

I know you all want to know why Mom had photos of cats in traps for Wordless Wednesday. The secretary at the Dr.’s office where Mom gets her shots asked Mom to help her transport ferals to get fixed because the lady is at work for drop off and pick up times. There is a farm nearby that doesn’t take care of their cats ( she called SPCA and they were checked, but because they have some food and water they were considered safe). The lady borrowed 4 traps, on day one only 2 worked and those were the 2 in the photos. There are 2 more babies- Miney and Moe, but only one got captured on day 2. Mom will fill you in as this project continues, they are not being released, hopefully they can get used to people. DSCF2194 (2) This is Miney after surgery, Mom likes the W instead of an M.

We are also joining P.S.Annie’s Throwback Thursday. These kittens remind Mom of KaChoo1KaChoo ( 1994-2010). This is her kitten photo, Grammie kept the gray one and named her Sheba, she lived until 2011.

Throwback Thursday

And last, but definitely not least is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter I


Ice is nice
but I prefer mice.
Ice keeps your drink cold
and your food from getting mold.
It looks a lot like glass
and can make you fall on your *ss

Happy Wednesday everyone! Thank you all for trying to help me yesterday with the syringe. Ann  ( http://www.mypawsitivelypets.com/ ) and Flynn (http://twodevoncats.blogspot.com/ ) were familiar with it and helpful. I ended up breaking mine so I had to get a new one at the vet, they also showed me how to work it. My niece is the hospital manager so she made a note to tell all the techs that they need to show people how to use them before they leave with one.

Joanie wants me to tell you her tummy was featured on Katzenworld:


My ROAR this week is for The Animal Rescue Site. I know most of you are familiar with it, but in case you are not, you are missing out. It is a great place to shop for kitty items for your cat and for you and when you do, you are also helping to feed shelter animals.

I recently purchased a ring for myself for $12.95 and in doing that, it buys 14 bowls of food. My hubby and I outgrew our original wedding bands a long time ago. About 10 years ago, I bought some cheap bands to wear with the hope we would someday be able to wear the originals. We only wear them when we go out and I guess I go out more than he does because mine is all scratched. I thought a ring with paw prints would be a good replacement. I would display mine on my hand, but apparently I have already outgrown this one : https://theanimalrescuesite.greatergood.com/store/ars/item/58710/paw-parade-stainless-steel-ring?source=4-2835-26 I am pretty sure it will fit when the humidity goes away and my hand isn’t as puffy.

We are praying for more sick friends: Purrs and Prayers for Minniehttp://wildcatwoodscats.blogspot.com/

and our friend LadyBird needs prayers too: https://doggiecaperz.wordpress.com/
