Friday Friendly Fill-Ins

Standard

YAY!  Friday means FILL-IN fun!    This is a great Hop co-hosted by 15andMeowing and Four-Legged Furballs and it’s always – ALWAYS – tons of fun.   C’mon on and join us.  Click the badge above and sign up.   Each of our hosts gives us two sentences with blanks to fill – here’s what we have for this week AND this week I let Mom do the first two sentences and I did the last two!    SHARE and share alike I say!    Take it away Mom…………..(her words in BLUE and mine in RED)

 

1. September is the perfect month for my birthday AND my wedding anniversary – usually the weather is really NICE.

2. This month, I am looking forward to starting to see some of the maples begin to get Fall colors – althought this year has been WEIRD for weather so far!.
3. My morning routine always includes alerting my Mom to whether we have a breakfast visitor or not – some of the neighborhood cats come by here for a handout and I sit at the front door windows if I see someone out there.   Mom comes a running with a dish of foodables for them.
4. I have a love-hate relationship with food – I LOVE my diet kibble but HATE every other kind of food especially canned stuff.

There you have it – this week’s sentences all filled in by me and Mom.    Now I’m gonna visit my buddies to see how THEY filled in THEIR sentences!    That’s the fun part – we learn a lot of cool stuff about each other that way!    Let’s face it – cats are endlessly fascinating but so are humans!

Me and my Mom – the Dynamic Duo!   Happy Friday……..

Love, Teddy

    • I know – it’s very weird but we figure I never HAD canned food as a kitten WHEREVER I WAS….Mom hasn’t given up on me though – once in a while she opens up a can and hopes for the best but I’m stickin’ with my diet kibble stuff. Hard to imagine that I’m on diet food and still weigh 20 lbs huh??????

      Hugs, Teddy

    • My Mom says canned food is usually “stinky”……LOL…….but she still has a cupboard full of “stinky” from when Sammy was here…..some things are hard to give up. She is going to take it all to the shelter soon though. It’s about time.

      Hugs, Teddy

  1. No fall color changes to speak of in East Tennessee. We won’t notice much in the lower elevations until mid-October. The upper elevations of the Smoky’s and Blue Ridge Parkway there could be a change developing by the end of the month. I hope it’s a good year to enjoy the foliage. We haven’t had one in a few years. Have a pAwesome weekend!

    • Oh we TOTALLY agree about foliage – we look forward to it every year and it has been disappointing indeed. We’ll be hoping all the rain we had a while ago will give us some pretty color but who knows?! The heat has taken a toll. One of our favorite “rites of Fall” is heading up to Skyline Drive to check the color out and have lunch at the Skyland Lodge. Hopefully it will be a COLORFUL trip this year! Have a super weekend!

      Hugs, Pam and Teddy too

  2. Teddy! Your Mommy and mine will soon around for another year here in this world! They are so fortunate and loved, aren’t they? Mom said she will truly say “Happy Birthday” to your mom as soon as my mommy wakes for the day then! You both will hear it in the wind I promise. I’ll meow.

    1. September IS the perfect month for her birthday too, she said. Cooler, and the sky is like a blue crayon in color- and a few early leaves are dropping. Dogwood, for one.

    2. This month Mom is looking forward to the all -the -family trip they are giving her, going to Biltmore for her birthday , staying over night and photo expeditions on the Blue Ridge Pkwy.

    3. MY morning routine is to give mom at least a hundred headbonks back and forth as she sits on the edge of the bed after she wakes.

    4. Teddy, I’m like you. I have a love- hate relationship with food too. Funny, so does mommy!

    Love you Teddy.

  3. Thank you both for participating in the fill-ins. I enjoyed your answers. September must be your favorite month with 2 big days 🙂 And how sweet of your Mom to feed cats that visit. Teddy, you are like KaTwo, that is all she will eat too and she will only eat in her room. Have a great weekend! XO

    • Well some of us are just a little bit picky and some of us will eat anything. Sammy was a lot more flexible than I am. September is a nice month – we are still hoping it will FEEL like September soon because right now it feels like the middle of JULY!!!!!

    • I know Mom would be happier if I would eat canned food but strangely(!) I like my diet dry stuff. Perhaps my vet will have something to say about what I eat when we go in for my FeLV shot. Who knows.

  4. Cats do indeed rule Teddy.
    OMCs mom looked out the dining room window this am to see the small dogwood in the back had golden leaves on it. She really hopes it is the first sign of fall and not heat distress.

    • Well Madi – after all the heat most of us have had it COULD easily be heat distress but it’s time for trees to begin “dialing back” anyway…….our maples in the back are the first ones to show color and no sign of anything yet. Hopefully it won’t be long……we sure as heck need a break right?

    • You’re like me Brian – FOOD IS FOOD IS FOOD…….even though I don’t like stinky stuff I suppose maybe one day I will and I know Mom will give me WHATEVER I want – kinda cool huh?

  5. Nice fill-ins from all. We are all very excited to have September give us some cooler temps, and hopefully some sun very soon!!! Teddy, have you ever met any of those kitties on your outside walkies?

    • The only time we see other kitties is in the dark early morning front porch visits! Isn’t that interesting? We figure they are the kitties who are out all the time and they know I life here, and they see lights on in the house super early (Mom gets up ridiculously early) so they have learned to come HERE. I never have seen a kitty during the day. Dogs yes – kitties no.

  6. With all of the hot weather our leaves started to die and drop very early, so we probably won’t get many nice colours.
    Eric was the same and didn’t like wet food much and loved his dried food.

    • The other kitties in the neighborhood seem to consider this their breakfast café so we cater to them. Mom thinks they all have breakfast at home first then come here for dessert. HAHAHA

    • Hi CK! My Mom would REALLY love for me to switch to stinky stuff for eatables but I’ve been sticking to my guns. She is persistent though so who knows – maybe one day I’ll surprise the world and become a stinky goodness fan!

  7. Thank you for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins, Teddy and Mom Pam! Your answers are purrfection. I just love how September kicks off what I believe to be the best season of the year. It sure is a bonus that it’s also your birthday and anniversary month! Teddy, this here human feeds visiting kitties outside, too. The kitties inside always make sure they get to taste what the visitors are having, too. And goodness, Teddy, you sound just like Eddy when it comes to food. She loves one single kind of dry food, and absolutely nothing else. Purrs, and happy Friday!

    • Well Eddy and I know a good thing when we see/taste it. Why try other stuff when the one thing we LOVE is available?! September is a biggie here – and being the first of early Fall is a bonus. There are a FEW leaves turning here already but not many….dogwoods are BARELY starting. Hope you have a great weekend!

      Hugs, Teddy and Mom too

  8. Hi Teddy,
    We get dinner visitors but they are not the feline variety, they are masked bandits who clear out whatever is left in the bird/squirrel feeder. They are rather greedy!

  9. Teddy, it’s nice that your mom takes care of the visitors that come over. Maybe she could give them the can food you don’t like.

    • Mom thinks it’s cute that I let her know if someone is waiting on our front porch for a handout. It’s raining this morning so nobody will be here – but if it stops we might have a “drop in” !!!

  10. Teddy, you really should try stinky goodness. It is yummers! So exciting for your parents to have their anniversary this month and your mom her birthday. Maybe with all the rain coming, we will get some really good leaf color this year.

    • Mom said the same thing about the rain and the leaves – we’re hoping that magic combination works – last year was a big BOO with leaves and we’re hoping for a BEAUTIFUL Fall. September is a biggie month for sure…..Mom and Dad with BIG 28 and Mom with BIG 71. EEEEEK.

  11. Dynamic Duo…..a great name for the two of you together. You like diet food, Teddy? I hate it but it’s all I get unless I can nab Tyebe’s kitten food. This is no easy task as mom is a hawkeye over the food.

    • Shoko, if there’s an alternative to what we’re “stuck” eating then we’ll WANT it….in my case all I have is my diet kibble so I kind of HAVE to like it right? HAHAHA Seriously though, Mom keeps trying out all sorts of other things on me but I’m sticking with the Purina Weight Management stuff and I like it.

    • Oh I can eat wet stuff but won’t. LOL My doc says I was probably only given dry for my first year before the shelter – Mom has tried every variety she can get her paws on and no luck with me and wet. She’s pretty persistent though and once in a while she tries to tempt me with another one! Thanks for the info though……Mom probably will never give up on trying to get me off the dry but at least it’s Weight Management Dry from Purina and our vet approved of it. ❤

  12. Happy birthday, happy anniversary, and happy September to all of you. 🙂

    Our kitties love wet food, the kind that comes in the little bowl containers. I think it is Cesar’s. We don’t generally buy canned food. Most of the time they have dry food and they are inhaling that these days!

    Have a blessed week.
