Tortie Appreciation Day


Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and The A-Z Blogging Challege, today is the letter N.

I saw on Cat Wisdom 101 that today is Tortoiseshell Appreciation Day. And we appreciate our two torties.




Tortie Katz Blog features a tortie of the month and this month Elvira is being featured. To see, Click here

She is on their Facebook too, click here. Click here

For The A-Z, we are on N. N is for decluttering things you never use now or never used at all like your rice cooker or bread machine. I still use the bread machine, but I have gotten rid of things in the past like a treadmill. Then I was dumb enough to get another one only to not use that one either so I got rid of that one too. Can you think of anything you no longer use or got as a gift and never used?



  1. What beautiful torties you have, Ellen! And concats to Elvira on being featured on the Tortie Katz Blog! XO

  2. Elvira is special….not that Penny isn’t as well…Happy Tortie Day, Gals!

    Sometimes our sons give us things as gifts…and we didn’t need/want them….so they do tend to gather dust. They get used when the sons are here and cooking, LOL! We think *they* wanted them!

  3. I also used to have a treadmill that I actually used for quite a few years. But then just a couple years ago I get sick and tired of staring at the wall in the winter time when I’m on this silly thing. So I got rid of it. Even though I need the exercise.

  4. What beautiful girls and makes me long to see Admiral again who was a beauty are all Torties.

  5. Our Callie is a Tortie and we are giving her extra treats today! 💖 We got rid of our treadmill too, and various kitchen appliances we don’t use.

  6. Awww, you’re both most good looking. Being featured is awesome.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week, Ellen. Scritches to all the kitties. xoxo ♥

  7. awww I love torties! Our Gretchen was one, and we sure loved her and her cattitude.
    We wore out two rice cookers we used them so much, but didn’t get another. We still have our bread maker but haven’t used it in years. 🙂

  8. Beautiful torties! I have a drink mixer for smoothies I bought a year ago, but it’s still in the box. Maybe I’ll use it this summer.

  9. We love the two of you, you’re the sweetest torties😻More Double Pawkisses🐾😽💞
    Granny here. We have an almost new coffee machine, that makes all kinds of coffee, but haven’t used it almost since we got it. It was to complicated and I didn’t like the coffee, besides I stopped drinking cappucino, because of the milk, so I put the machine away and it’s in the closet for two years now because Grandpaw doesn’t want to get rid of it…Aargh…🙈

  10. I have so much that needs sorted and donated or trashed. My husband is a hoarder who chides me about things I tossed out decades ago. ~sigh~ My parents were the opposite while two of my sisters-in-law discarded things that they either needed later or my brother resented losing. Penny and Elvira are gorgeous, my dear. Be well!

    1. I joke that I married my mother because my hubby is quite similar in keeping everything. 🙂 XO
