Sunday Selfie


Happy Sunday!    Time to join in on the “strut your stuff” selfie hop hosted by our friends the Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head.   If you’d like to join us – just visit them by clicking their badge above and use the LINKY tool and give us your BEST SHOT!

Mom embarrasses me yet again this morning with a photo of me napping on my back, legs every which way, and of course I didn’t have time to insist she use a “modesty flower” on my photo!  Oh well………….I’m a ginger so you can’t see me blushing anyway right?!

Today we show our original photo and the one she jazzed up – with a frame from Pizap and the artsy effect called “Quirky” from Lunapic.   The end result is below – I approved.

HAPPY SUNDAY!!!   Love, Teddy

Friendly Fill-Ins!


Let’s Fill In for Fun!

Hello!   Today we Hop on board the FILL-IN blog hop co-hosted by McGuffys’ Reader and 15andMeowing to share some more STUFF about us here in my house!   Everybody gets to “dish” their thoughts on things in this Hop – filling in sentences tells everyone a lot of things about you that’s for sure!    If you click the badge above, you will go to McGuffy’s where you can join in the fun by using the LINKY tool !

Every week each of the hosts gives us TWO sentences each…………………and below are this week’s challenges.   I decided to be a sweetie and let my Mom fill-in these.   I could have hogged the spotlight but I blog all the time and she hardly has a chance to do anything without MY snoopervision!    Tee Hee     Mom’s fill-ins are in GREEN.

1. I would never be friends with someone who HATES animals – they wouldn’t be “my kind of person”!

2. I will never refuse any treatment that my vet recommends for Teddy – I totally trust our vet and know that he truly LOVES his patients.

3. I have never been to a restaurant for Christmas dinner because I always love making my own , but it might be fun to dress up and go to a fancy restaurant just once and let THEM do the work!!.

4. When it comes to   any cat I’ve ever had   , I loved them with all my heart from day one until I kissed them goodbye – such special little children they are.
Gosh Mom – you mean you think I’m super special?    Well that’s nice cuz I think you are too!!    You showed me how to do a proper somersault after all !

(during my first week in my new home!)

We have a special spot in our heart today for our friends at FRIENDS FUREVER blog – Miss Sharon and her kitties Raz and Allie – as Mr. Bill’s funeral is today.    He was a brave man who fought to stay with his family, accomplished so very much in his life, and adored his pets.   We are so sad for Miss Sharon but we are sending our love, our strength and hugs because we know that one day, they will all be together again.   You can visit their blog by clicking HERE. 

Now if you’ll excuse me,

I’m going to see if I can talk Mom into

taking me outside for a walk!  

Know what my favorite thing to do out there is?   Roll around in the dirt!  

Mom calls me her little red Pig.  

Good thing I’m cute – I get away with so much stuff!!!!

Sunday Selfie Hop


Happy Sunday!  Let’s HOP!

It’s Sunday and you know what that means……….time to join the crew at The Cat On My Head for another selfie blog hop!    We can show off ourselves all across the blogosphere any old time but on Sunday we do this thing where we are THE STARS – we are the CENTER ATTRACTION………cool huh?  If you want to play along with us, click on the badge above and go to The Cat On My Head, use the LINKY tool and you’re IN with the rest of us!

This week Mom used Lunapic to jazz me up a bit – I love this spot on her studio couch and hang out there almost every day while she’s pounding away on her computer keyboard.   Between my blog, Cat Scouts, email and Facebook she’s on it a LOT.   I’m not too happy about that but at least I can keep her company on the studio couch!   I do like this effect though from Lunapic – it’s called GAUGUIN and it makes for a rather snazzy “painting” of me don’t you think?

Mom says I’m a work of art even without this effect………….I’m not sure if that’s a GOOD thing or a bad thing!    All I know is I’m happy……………and that’s definitely a GOOD THING!

Happy Sunday 

See You At THE HOP!  

Love, Teddy

Friendly Fill-Ins


Let’s Fill-In….Shall We?

Friday is “filling in” blog hop day.    It’s a fun Hop co-hosted by McGuffy’s Reader AND 15andMeowing.    If you click the badge above you will be whisked away to McGuffy’s where you can use Annie’s LINKY tool and join up to play along with us!

I let my Mom do this week’s filling in……………..just kind of seemed like SHE’D have an easier time with these particular sentences than I would so LET ‘ER RIP MOMMY!    Her fill-in words are in BABY BLUE………..


1. Meetings used to drive me crazy when I worked – people would be late, people wouldn’t show up, people would sit like lumps and not contribute – I do NOT miss meetings now that I’m retired!

2. Rules should be treated like “guidelines” – not necessarily cast in stone – sometimes there’s a BETTER way than the rule dictates!.

3. The best time to take a vacation is in the Fall – we have ALWAYS taken vacations in the Fall, after school starts and there are no crowds ANYWHERE!.

4. I have learned that there are no guarantees in life – don’t take a thing for granted – ever.


Gosh Mom – so serious!   Maybe I should tell a joke now so everyone can SMILE again…………..hahahaha……………just kidding.   Thank you for being the filler-inner this week!    Hope everyone has a HAPPY FRIDAY…………….remember how Sammy used to complain about Friday being “cleaning day” here at the house?   Well, it still is, but unlike Sammy I don’t run and hide – I WATCH.   I find it fascinating to see my Mom and Dad in this big flurry of activity straightening, vacuuming, dusting, and the best part about it?   When they’re finished I can drag all my toys back out of my box and make a big mess and watch them all over again!   Tee Hee………….

Hurry up Mom…………I’m waiting for you to finish so I can take a nap in my torn up old red cube!!

Love, Teddy (aka Butter Bean)*

*Butter Bean is my new nickname thanks to my Dad.   When I went to the vet for follow-up blood work I found out I now weigh 15.30 lbs.   That’s up a whole pound since June.   My vet says I’m NOT FAT – I’m “big boned”………my vet is my best buddy now!
