The Elvira Factor -1


Hi everyone! Penny decided she needed a day off because she has taken on another job. She is the official tick finder of the house now. Dad had one crawling on his play clothes and she pointed it out to mom. And I am a little tuckered so my new sister Elvira volunteered to do a post. So lets give a big round of appaws to Elvira.

Hi, how ya’ll doing? My 2 sisters and I had a blog called The Opinionated Pussycat. As you know, my dad went to Heaven and so did my sister, Sneakers not long after. I miss them, if you want to see some photos of me with my dad, click here.  And you can click here for a sample of one of my Elvira Factor’s posts.

My sister, Friday and I are pretty comfortable here. These people talk a little funny and pretty fast compared to what we were used to, but they are nice. Apparently, they have different accents than my dad had and people in the North are always rushing about and even talk fast.

I could do without my new mom’s rendition of the song, Elvira. Yikes! Her voice is awful.  She does give me some yummy treats called Greenies though. They are so good that I can’t help but lick my lips when I see the bag.

I am just easing back into writing so that is all I have for today. I will write gain soon though.

  1. Two busy kitties doing good work. Penny, tick finding is a worthy enterprise! Elvira, good job doing a post. The kitties and I are glad you are settling in! XO

  2. Elvira, we are all so happy that you and sisfur, Friday, were adopted by Mom Ellen and Dad David. We know you miss your dad, but they are terrific cat parents. We hope to hear more from you. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, angel Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer & Kizmet

  3. Finding a tick is well rewarded with some time off, Rosie!
    We are glad that Elvira was happy to sub in.

    Hi Elvira! Glad you are out and a bout, now. Its great to see you.
    I hope that soon you will love your new mom…cause you know, she’s the real deal!
    You and Friday sure scored!

    That was funny when you tattled about her singing, though, MOL!

  4. Nice to hear from you, Elvira. I am glad you and your sister are settling in.

  5. Well Elvira glad you’re relaxing in your new home……sorry your new Mom’s voice isn’t doing “your song” any justice but just remember she feeds you well and takes good care of you so you can forgive her lacking in the voice department! Tee Hee We’re all happy that you and Friday have a home with Miss Ellen – she’s a GREAT Cat Mom!

    Hugs, Teddy

  6. Elvira you are a born Mistress of Ceremonies, brava! And we’re going to check out those Greenies. I’m being checked out my self at the vet so I will NEED Greenies if they ever let me out, haha. SO glad you at “at home” with your WONDERFUL new mama and papa.

  7. Hi Elvira, I don’t know if you remember us but we read the Opinionated Pussycat, and enjoyed your writing. We are so glad you and your sister are settling into your new home. Some of us here are very fond of Greenies. Chimera is weird she doesn’t like treats or canned catfood.

  8. Hi Elvria…you did a wonderful job getting back into dictating blogs. And since I didn’t know you until now, I enjoyed seeing you in your first home. You are a lucky girl to be where you are now. XX

  9. Welcome, Elvira! Nice job on the post. I think you and your sister will be very happy in your new home.

  10. Welcome Elvira!! I would also sing for you …. but …. er… um ….. I won’t. (lucky you!) thank you for your post and telling a little about yourself!

  11. I, too, would be tempted to sing Elvira to you! Sometimes a cat has a “song” and sometimes I have to make one up. It’s fun for me but sometimes the cats hide!

  12. Ticks…eek!
    Elvira, so nice to meet you.
    We are so sorry about your angle dad and sisfur, yet you are now in the bestest place in the world for kitties, believe me.

  13. I’m glad you’re going to blog with your new mom. I didn’t know she sang so awful though. You’re going to have to deal with it, because she won’t stop singing. I don’t blame her either.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. Scritches all around and my best to your wonderful mom. ♥

  14. Ya done reallly good sweet Elvira. Your Dad was a friend of ours and our Dads spent some time together way back when at BlogPaws. Hugs sweetie.

  16. What a good kitty you are Elvira, I’m glad you are settling in, the Greenies always help with that, don’t they?

  17. I so enjoyed the clicks to the posts with your Dad and Sneakers. It was wonderful to see them. I am so sorry they have passed but you landed in a great place, Elvira. I think you did a superb job on your first post and will be looking forward to your next one!

  18. We used to read the posts you did with your Dad Elvira so we are glad to see you writing again !

  19. Glad you’re feeling comfortable in your new home already. TW says your new mom is the best. It must feel unusual to have a mom when you only had a dad before.

  20. I enjoyed reading your post Elvira. Glad you are settling into your new home.

  21. Nice to meet you, Elvira. We think you have found a wonderful new home there. Our Mom was also a New Englander and she says you are correct – they do talk fast:). Nice of you to take a turn for Penny.
