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

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!  

Sunday Selfie

Selfie Blog Hop Time!

We join the Sunday Selfie Hop hosted by The Cat On My Head – click their badge to join up too and see other selfies!

Every week we enjoy catching up with our friends – seeing them in all their glory in the world of selfie-taking.   I haven’t QUITE mastered doing the photos myself as I don’t have thumbs like my brother Angel Sammy did.   Mom snaps the photos and I do the posing.   I might have done a good one this week – what do you think?   I think it shows my stripes off quite nicely – it’s “Illusion” effect on Lunapic and Mom added the frame with Pizap.

Ready Or Not Here I Come!!

Happy Sunday!   See you tomorrow for PRE-TEASE MONDAY

Love, Teddy

Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Thankful Thursday Time

(then we’ll be creatively poetic!)

Time again to join Brian’s “Thankful Thursday” blog hop – and you can too if you just click the badge above and use the LINKY tool when you arrive to add your blog link and SHARE!   Today I’m thankful for bunches of things………..I’m thankful that I have a COOL house to live in because it’s been unbelievably HOT around here and it makes me worry about all the animals that don’t have a home to be safe and cool in.   I know Angel Sammy is cool – he says it’s perfect temperature all the time at the Rainbow Bridge……!    We are lucky AND we are thankful.    I can stretch out in Mom’s office and enjoy the perfect temperature…………..

Being CUTE before I went over to my beat up kitty cube to snooze…..

In La La Land snoozing………

Now for Angel Sammy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday and today is the FIRST DAY so we will start the alphabet ALLLLLL over again for the THIRD time!    You have a choice of doing a poem about ANYTHING you pick which starts with the letter “A”, OR, using one of Angel Sammy’s prompt words to write your poem about for “A”.    The words he gave us last week are:

(1)  ANTS   (2)  ANGER  (3) APPLES  (4) ANKLES

Sammy decided to do a poem with one of the prompts and chose ANKLES!

“A”

Ankles

By Angel Sammy Kimmell, 6/15/17

When I was just a little kit

It’s Mommy’s ankles that took a hit

I’d wait for her to walk on by

Then leap and grab a leg in a flash of an eye!

I’d wrap my arms and hold on tight

Then bite her ankle with all my might!

I know it was mean but it sure was fun

Mom would usually laugh – THEN RUN!!!!

What is it about an ankle that’s hard to resist?

I’m just not sure but I will insist

That kitties deserve a good ankle bitey

To settle for less just wouldn’t be righty!

 

HAHA Angel Sammy – that was a good one………………..!!    I can’t wait to read everyone else’s poem today and you all can give us your blog link to your poem in our comments OR even compose and show off your poem in our comments…..but for heavens’ sake, give writing a poem a try because it’s GOOD for your creativity and FUN for us to read!

Angel Sammy gave me four prompt words for NEXT week’s poetry challenge which will be with the letter “B”………………remember you can do ANY “B” word for your poem or use one of his prompts – it doesn’t matter – just write!

(1)  BANANA (2)  BATH  (3)  BRAVE  (4)  BALLOON

Now, what’s tomorrow???

FRIENDLY FILL-IN FRIDAY with co-hosts 15andMeowing and McGuffy’s Reader…….see you then!

Angel Sammy and Teddy too…………….

 

Monday Morning Meow

27

Hi Peeps!  What a glorious Sunday we had.  Yep – it was chilly but not TOO chilly…..sunny but not TOO sunny…..and busy but not TOO busy. 

Mom worked on her computer a lot – well, I had to consult a bit because she was working on some designs for my “store” – and as the design consultant of course I had to stick my paw in and stir things up!  We’re making progress though.

When I wasn’t actively HELPING, I was doing some bodily maintenance – you know, like cleaning my ears, straightening out my tummy hair, and of course the old foot cleaning:

Good thing I only have extra toes on my FRONT paws – I’m not much for “fancy foot work” (haha) !

Sometimes we cats have to get into some rather unusual positions to get all the bits and pieces of our fabulous selves – good thing most of us are so good at cat yoga…..and if we are slightly full-figured (not me of course) it’s even tougher to contort the old body in order to get clean.  That’s why we rely on YOU – our peeps – to help us with all of this stuff by giving us the old brush from time to time:

Sam Enjoying Being Brushed
Yep – that’s the spot Mom…….

It feels great and is ever so relaxing…….

So, how did I get off on a tangent?  I was trying to tell you that we had a really great Sunday and wound up making it all about ME and my grooming…….not the most exciting subject in the world but after all, this is MY blog – right? 

Sammy Hugs for Everyone!
