“Friday Fill-Ins” and Cleaning Day



It’s that time again!

It’s cleaning day at my house and guess what…………the Broomhildas aren’t coming – we’re on our own – no substitute cleaners so we’re back to the “FAMILY CLEANING DAY” mode!   No worries – we can handle it…..if the crew of bulldogs can do it – WE can do it.

However, I did put out a minor distress call to the neighborhood felines who were MORE than happy to give us a hand…………..why not take advantage of their willingness to chip in right?   (click on the pictures to see captions and “bigify”!):

See?   Didn’t take long at all.   Sometimes I wonder why Mom ever employed the Broomhildas………………we cats are always ready to help out right?

Thanks for asking us to help out Sammy! We're all going home to take a nap now. Just give us a buzz next time you want help with the house OK??????

Now for the FUN part of this post today – the Friday Fill-Ins hosted by 15andmeowing and McGuffy’s Reader!    Here are the sentences for this week’s challenge and MY (not Mom’s this week but MINE) answers are in RED!    If you wanna play along, just click the badge below and join the BLOG HOP for this fill-in fun………………



1. I used to love to eat cheese,  but now it  repulses me.
2. I would never eat deli meats like ham, turkey and salami, but now I love it.
3. I always cry for my Mom to come clean my litterbox the second I use it.
4. Seeing Mom first thing in the morning before she combs her hair always makes me laugh.
So there!   Mom did the fill-ins the last couple of weeks and I thought it was high time I got to do it…………………….considering my fill-in for #4 though I’m thinking Mom may want to take over again next Friday.   EEK!


Hugs, Sammy

  1. My human’s office REALLY needs work, but we are off to a cat show – and awards banquet! – this weekend, so it’s going to have to wait. My human seems really destroyed about this, LOL!


    • Hope you and your human have a fun time at the cat show Summer…….missing a cleaning day is no biggie – just gives us more time to decorate the place with our furs!

      Hugs, Sammy


  2. Hahaha, those kitty helpers are first rate! I am going to do Friday Fill-in here because I missed YOU Sammy………… !!!!!!!!!

    1. I used to love to eat steak, but now it repulses me.

    2. I would never eat salmon, but now I love it.

    3. I always cry over animals being mistreated and/or without homes.

    4. Pam and Sam always makes me laugh…… especially when I need a laugh!!!
    Oh man got some bad hair days ahead… humidity has moved in and it is messing with my already misbehaving hair. I will be looking forward to your Mom’s Fill-ins next Friday… Not that your Fill-ins weren’t superb Sam.

    Good Morning and Happy Friday!


        • OH BOY! BIRTHDAY! May I suggest some BIRTHDAY BACON to start the day????? Please tell CH Mom and I send him a big birthday hug. Hope you two do something FUN to celebrate. It’s going to be hot here today and tomorrow too so I’ll be INSIDE for sure………..

          Love, Sammy

          • I will tell him about the birthday hug! We celebrated last night with family at Longhorn and tonight it will just be us with chicken kabobs on the grill. 98 yesterday, same today, same tomorrow. Is it fall yet?


          • HOT HOT HOT – I guess we’re all getting the weather we wanted when we were complaining about COOL and rain! Mother Nature has a great sense of humor yes? Enjoy CH’s birthday continuation today…..stay cool……cold wine purrrhaps?

            Love, Sammy


  3. Those Broomhildas take a lot of time off, I am glad all those neighborhood friends came to your rescue. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, I have a feeling your Mom isn’t going to like your answer to #4 🙂 Have a great weekend. XO


    • I’m a big fan of salami but won’t turn down liverwurst or bologna either….or ANYTHING in the deli meat department. I don’t like cheese either – won’t eat it AT ALL. Mom always answers my Litterbox Call Signal (my scream from the basement stairs) when I’ve used my box. I want it cleaned out ASAP or sooner!!!

      Happy Weekend, Sammy


  4. One of us was supposed to do the fill-ins today, Sammy, but mom took it over again. And she thinks Mau is a blog hop! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  6. Mom’s schedule here is all messed up because the grands are out of school and are here most of the week. So tomorrow may be cleaning day here instead. That’s OK with us if she can find us some bacon when she is cleaning the fridge:)

    Thank you for your kind words for Ciara – into day 2 now and so far, so good.

    Woos – Ciara and Lightning


    • Oh I bet you two are having fun with the kids aren’t you?! Here’s hoping your Mom finds some bacon hiding in the refrigerator…..that would be a nice start to the weekend. Am still sending POTP for you sweet Ciara…..

      Hugs, Sammy


  7. Your friends did a great job on the cleaning, Sammy! I like your fill in answers. My mum looks like a scarecrow in the mornings. I always watch for when my mum cleans my litter box then jump right in and use it so she has to clean it again.


    • Flynn I do the same thing with my litterbox – the minute she gets it all spic and span I pop right back in. It’s a fun game isn’t it? (somehow Mom doesn’t think so though!)

      Love, Sammy


  8. That dishwashing cat looks hard at work! LOL! Interesting you went off cheese. It is probably a bit “binding” for a mature cat’s digestion. I used to LOVE the aussie version of Kaszanka until I found out it was made from congealed blood. 😀


  9. Bwa! Haa!! Haaa!!! Sammy, Your neighbor cats is hilarious!
    My Mommy has been a cleaning demon this week. She gotted her Persian silk rug from Midway and wes now gots it in our living room, Mommy says mes has to be good and not claw it – this time (it was put away because me did that a few years ago).
    And mes LOVES your answers to the Friday Fillins!!!


    • Oh Nellie – some smells from Midway probably bring back some memories huh? I bet the rug looks beautiful in your living room though……..I think you need to listen to her and not claw it even though I bet it’s VERY TEMPTING!

      Love and Hugs, Sammy


  10. Our cat Cashew loves his deli meat treats. But I try not to give them too often because I think the kind we buy is probably loaded in salt. Still learning what is best for him! He is quite picky – I do believe he also has turned his nose up at cheese.


    • I don’t often get the deli meat for the same reason (salt/spices) but it makes a fabulous treat!! I ate a bit of cheese now and then when I was younger……and yogurt too – LOVED yogurt. Our tummies get a bit more sensitive as we get older. Too bad about that cuz all the things we love don’t necessarily love us any longer! HAHA

      Hugs, Sammy
