Pre-Teaser Monday (and more…)


YES it is, and we are just starting class at Ding Dong School so take a seat!

It’s Monday and time for us to get you pumped up for tomorrow when it will be up to you to take a close look at a photo and tell us WHERE WAS THIS TAKEN???!!!    It might sound easy but trust me – NOT NECESSARILY!     True we have some easy ones but often we have toughies.

Remember first of all that whoever is FIRST to comment tomorrow is a winner…………what of????   This:

Last Tuesday we had THREEEEEEEE First Commenters and each of them got a copy of this badge!     So when you arrive tomorrow – comment first then take a seat for class.

Gosh I wanna win that badge so I’ll be here EARLY!

Me too! I’m gonna even skip breakfast to get here EARLY!

We have other badges that you can win too………..if you’re FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, if you are a RIGHT GUESSER NOT FIRST and if you are WRONG!

Just to remind you of the rules for tomorrow when it comes to making a guess:

So are we all set on the rules?

All set on the rules and DETERMINED to win!

Now you know that normally Suzie and company don’t give you a cheer on Mondays………….they save it up for Tuesdays and Wednesdays…………but our very own Sarge thought you might appreciate a little ENCOURAGEMENT for tomorrow as only HE could provide……………….Take it away Sarge!


uhoh………….wardrobe malfunction……….Sarge thanks for trying – suggestion get those pants to the school seamstress ASAP and you might want to go to the school Jacuzzi and soak a while – no doubt those legs are sore!

Well, tomorrow the girls will be here and they don’t do any ATHLETIC moves other than shaking their pom poms so no danger of “issues” for them.

Now – who wants a snack?



I brought my OWN snack!

Yeah I’ve got that Valentine’s Day hairnet again….remember – no jokes!   I’m going to have a SPECIAL Valentine’s Day snack for you on Wednesday……..don’t expect these little treats all the time now – it’s because they pay me EXTRA to provide something CUTE to you on SPECIAL school days!


See the sign?   Wash hands FIRST!  

Then come back for popcorn OR cotton candy – you have to choose ONE!  

After all this stuff is expensive you know!

We’ll see you all tomorrow at a SURPRISE TIME!   

Profs Angel Sam and Teddy



Today is Teddy’s FIRST “Gotcha” Anniversary!

One year ago today, my husband David and I made a trip to our local shelter to meet a sweet 11 month old ginger kitten they had added to their website as being “adoptable”.     We had waited a few months after helping our sweet Sammy to the Rainbow Bridge before we felt ready to adopt again and when I saw this little boy – I knew we HAD to go see him!

He was a real cutie……..he was larger than Sammy had been at almost one year old – but he was just the SWEETEST little guy – he was just SO HAPPY!    The shelter helper took him out of his cage there and let me hold him and he made biscuits in my lap the entire time – he just never stopped…..even when I put him down on the floor to play with him – he hugged my legs and looked me straight in the eye and I could “SEE” him saying “PLEASE TAKE ME HOME!!”


This past year has flown by……… time does…………and we can’t believe we’ve had Teddy in our lives now for a whole year but it’s been a FUN year and a happy year and two hearts that had been broken when Sammy left healed quickly as we realized Teddy was definitely the best thing that could have happened to us……………and we also felt strongly that Sammy had sent Teddy to us to raise with the love HE had known for almost 18 years.

Every day is an adventure with Teddy………..and we know he will keep us YOUNG (well……maybe not younger in years but younger at heart!)………and we hope it’s at least for as many years as we had with our beloved Sammy.

So while we’re not having a party here with food and balloons (well – maybe a few!) – we are celebrating the day by giving our little guy all the hugs and kisses he will tolerate – because……..

Today is HIS day (and ours too!)

  1. TEDDY! It’s your GOTCHA Day!!! I am so glad you and your mom and dad found one another. Of course you had help. Bet Angel Sammy wore his stork costume up on the Bridge in celebration of the bundle of Ginger he caused to be delivered!


    • Oh I love thinking of Angel Sammy in a stork outfit – I think one of his jobs at the Bridge is helping find the “right” next kitty for families who have lost one….he sure arranged for me to find my perfect family!!!

      Love, Teddy


  2. Happy Gotcha Day sweet Teddy! Teddy was definitely meant to be your boy. Poor Sarge, good jump though 🙂 ANd very nice hairnet Miss Dingleberry. XO


    • I think it was a little chintzy of her too saying we couldn’t have cotton candy AND popcorn….maybe she’s forgotten that her retirement package from Ding Dong School includes some heavy stock in a dental office! Between crunching down on unpopped popcorn kernels and all that oooooey goooooey cotton candy she could be insuring her retirement fund is FAT by the time she leaves Ding Dong (school that is).

      Hugs, Teddy

    See you tomorrow. Have a purrfect day. My best to your mom and dad. ♥


  4. I like Mrs. Dingleberry’s Snackarama….I’ll be in that line up as soon as I get to school. Nawww…I’m not going to study this week. I don’t get anywhere when I do study. Oh, Mrs. Dingleberry, do you have any hot dogs this week. YOU DO! Wow…can I have one with sauerkraut…..please. It’s my lucky day.



    • I hope you enjoyed your snack from Miss D today Shoko because she’s got the day OFF from serving us a snack tomorrow at Teaser to prepare for a BIG VALENTINE’S SNACK on Wednesday! See you in class tomorrow!

      Hugs, Teddy


  5. Wow, that year sure did fly by. It has been a joy to get to know Teddy, and Cooper loves to be a part of the Gingersnap trio with him. He’s a character and oh so handsome. Happy 1st Gotcha Day, sweet boy. We are delighted to see the sun shining at Ding Dong School. We haven’t seen it here in forever. We’ll try really hard to get here early tomorrow. Love to everyone. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer


    • Time is flying for sure……it really doesn’t seem like a year since Teddy came into our lives but it’s been an AMAZING year. Sammy certainly did find the RIGHT boy for us!! We’ll see you in class today!

      Hugs, Pam


  6. Happy first Gotcha Day, Teddy! It doesn’t seem possible that a year has passed already.
    I will try and be on time tomorrow, but no promises!
    Oh my goodness! I hope Sarge hasn’t done himself any permanent injuries in that amazing leap.


    • Sarge hurt his pants more than he hurt himself (!!) – you’ll see how well he’s looking today for Teaser!! We can’t believe it’s been a year either….but it’s sure been a FUN year that’s for sure!

      Love, Teddy and Mom
