Friendly Fill-Ins

Standard

FRIDAY!   FILL-INS DAY!    Our two co-hosts invite you to join them and the rest of us in “filling in the blanks” in the four sentences they give us each week.    Use your own words and you have a chance to tell people a little more about yourself!   Cool huh?    Wanna play?   Click the badge above and link up with us.

Here are the four sentences (two from each co-host) we got for this week.   Mom and I shared filling in this week.   Mom’s words are in GREEN and my words are in ORANGE.


1. I wish I could train Teddy  to clean his own litterbox!
2. I am planning to get a new pre-lit Christmas tree for Christmas this year.
3. I know it’s time to wake Mom up in the morning when my tummy says its’ hungry.
4. I felt brave when I scared a 2-3 foot long harmless (!) garter snake off my front sidewalk!

By the way, I’m not sure if I scared that snake or if Mom’s scream scared it.   Either way, it moved pretty quick into the azalea bushes.
So that’s fill-ins for this week………………..Mom, Dad and I will be on vacation next week so we won’t be filling in.    Will you miss us?    NAAAA….you have lots of other peeps to read fill-ins from!

“OK Mr. Snake…..I double-dog-dare you to come up on my sidewalk again!!”

    • My Mom remembers “Ugly Jim” which your pawrents used to have….I think you need a new “Ugly Jim” – one that is NOT edible. We know what you boys would do with something you could EAT.

      Hugs, Teddy

  1. Great fill ins from you and your mom, Teddy. That snake must have given your mom a fright so she was lucky you were there to protect her.
    Flynn once found a nest of adders (UK’s only venomous snake) and kept bringing me babies every day.

  2. MOL..wouldn’t that be something, Teddy, cleaning our own litterbox…MOL…which of course I tried, but Granny didn’t liked what I did with it…😹 Anyway, we came to wish your mom and dad a great time on their well deserved vacation and Enjoy your time in the Hotel, Teddy. Let yourself get spoiled extremely, sweet boy. Extra Pawkisses to all of you🐾😽💞

    • Thanks dear Binky – I’m sure Mom, Dad and even poor little me at the kitty hotel will enjoy a week away from each other – it will make the reunion that much HAPPIER right? I’ll keep telling myself that next week anyway. I occasionally “transfer” litter from my box to the floor but that’s as far as my litterbox cleaning efforts have gone. Mom is happy about that.

      Big Hugs, Teddy

    • I can’t imagine playing with a snake…..it would be impossible to know if it’s poisonous or not – thankfully the garter snake is not poisonous and it doesn’t want to be around US any more than we want to be around it. BUT I do know some cats will roll the dice and play with one. The only snake I like is my furry one that is a toy and does NOT bite!

      Hugs, Teddy

  3. I am excited for you to go on your vacation! I know it will be wonderful! We are thinking about a big pre-lit tree this Christmas but the thought of taking down all the ornaments and stuff makes me just want to stick with Mom’s ceramic tree. Maybe we will just put ornaments on the Palm again this year! Teddy, you are a super brave boy to scare that snake away!

  4. I love my pre-lit smaller Christmas tree we bought several years ago. Prior to buying it we had an 8′ pre-lit it was lovely but handling it was getting OLD for 2 OLD folks.
    Teddy that snake is flirting with danger if he gets near you

  5. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. You are most brave to scare a big snake away. I will miss you next week, but I am so happy that I will see your folks. Tell your mom that there are many self- cleaning litter boxes, she could get you one. 🙂 Have a nice weekend. XO

    • The self cleaning ones that make noise would be a NO GO for me……and really at least I always go potty in my box and NEVER on the floor or anywhere else so she’s grateful for that! My Mom and Dad are happy to be seeing you and Mr. David next week too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Our mom got a good chuckle out of Mom Pam’s fill-in for #1. Wouldn’t that be great feat. You and Sawyer had a similar reply for # 3. We know we are really going to miss you all next week.

  7. Oh, we will definitely miss all of you next week! Love the answers, and as someone owned by two kitties, I agree with wishing we could train them to change their own litterboxes. Have a great vacation!

  8. It would be wonderful if you were to clean your own litter box. I’m impressed that you ran off that snake.

    Thank you for co-hosting the Friendly Fill-ins.

    Have a purrfect day and weekend. ♥

  9. Teddy we think you can take full credit for scaring off the snake from the sidewalk. Snakes can’t hear – they sense vibrations. If it was on the sidewalk, we guess you whapped at it, since the sidewalk wouldn’t vibrate much. But Mom’s shriek didn’t do it.

  10. It is possible, though not always easy, to train cats to use the human toilet. Makes clean-up much easier if you can get them to do it.

    Remember, you want garter snakes around, they help keep away the really nasty vermin. That’s doesn’t mean you want them too close, but please don’t kill them, the perform a vital pest control service.

    • Oh we never kill them – just “shoo” them away. They do a good service for sure……..we know we have a couple at least living UNDER our front sidewalk and I know they keep “guard”!

  11. I used to wish my kitties could go outside like the dogs do for litterbox purposes…but as I recall, when I had my own little garden plot, (when I was about 10 or so)…I was digging in it to put in some plants dad had given me…and euwwwww, there was kitty do-do n there…YUCK! Ya gotta be careful what you wish for, LOL!!

    We have lots of garden snakes here, but we love them because they help keep the varmints at bay. B & D don’t seem to have the same respect and try to kill them. I have rescued far too many…sigh…I am not scared of them, perhaps startled if I come across one, but I will even pick them up if I have to.

    Have a wonderful vacation and .enjoy all the sights and freedoms!

    Teddy, we hope you get spoiled to the max at your kitty vacation home:)

    • thanks for the vacation wishes………we are excited – although Ted doesn’t know yet of course (shhhhh!). I have no logical reason to feel the way I do about snakes. After all, I lived on the island of Taiwan for two years without giving them a thought and Taiwan has a LOT of types of snakes! I remember seeing some farmers walking on the side of the road – EIGHT men carrying a HUGE snake on their shoulders – EEEK. Our house was even right next to a huge rice paddy and they were notorious for harboring snakes. So where my “EEEEEEK” for snakes came from I have no idea!

      We are all excited about our vacation……………we’ll have photos to share as long as I can remember that I have my camera!

      Hugs, Pam

  12. Snakes – even the harmless ones – are not OK, T. I am with you on that one, 100%. Now and then, I find an empty snakeskin, which I love to smell. And smell. And smell, till Mom says the word, “ENOUGH ALREADY!!” and “Jeeez!”

    Love and licks,
