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!



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


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! 

One Big Boring Blog Day


Hi Peeps!  Happy Saturday………well yesterday I was – as the blog title says – a BUM.  I know you find that hard to believe (don’t you???), but I whiled away the day between napping and a few short trips out to check on the yard.  Most of the day I was:


Yep – it’s the truth. 

And when I wasn’t doing THAT, I was in the back yard:

Nice to stop and smell the roses....I mean mums!

Making sure things are in order back here!

Or in the front yard:

Sam posing for the camera on the sidewalk in front of the house - what a ham.

Yep - looking good here too....no invaders....no unauthorized squirrels!

So after I established that the world was safe for another day (at least in MY neck of the woods), I came back inside and was my usual companionable self with my parents.  Of course all of this was undertaken AFTER they put the noisy MONSTER back in the closet for another week (Friday is housecleaning day).  Had to wait for THAT to be over with before I could do anything.

So all in all, it was a good day but because nothing BIG happened today, this is going to be one of the more boring blogs I’ve ever done – if I had something huge to share I would.  Believe me.  But in truth, it’s been JUST ANOTHER DAY IN THE LIFE OF ONE SPOILED CAT

Ain’t it grand??????????????  😀 😀 😀 😀

Happy Saturday, Sammy

Wet Sunday = Naps!


Hi Peeps! Happy Monday.  I hope you didn’t miss me too much yesterday when I let Mom take over for a special remembrance post.  I like to think that I’m the ONLY cat she’s ever adored but I also know that’s not true so why pretend?!?!  In fact, she’s going to butt in borrow my blog again one day this week because she wants to talk a little more about some of her PREVIOUS cats.  Since she’s older than dirt been around a few years there have been many kitties in her life.

Here’s what I did all day yesterday……….

Sam Sleeping Close Up

Yep – it rained ALL day – what’s a guy supposed to do when it rains all day anyway?  I did manage to move from the above location to this location though:

Sam Sleeping (again)

Hey...will somebody PULEEZE shut the curtains???

 Anyway, you get the idea…..I was a bum.  All day.  That’s my “specialty” around here as if you didn’t already know that. 

Tomorrow is Tuesday Teaser and I still haven’t found a good photo to use…..do you think the fact I’m napping all the time has anything to do with my lack of time to search?  Hmm…..maybe.  Guess I’d better get my rear in gear. 

Have an awesome day………


Oh – and about yesterday’s “Remembrance Day”…..please don’t be sad – the Rainbow Bridge is a way cool spot for us animals to play and run and be young again……and of course WAIT for you to come join us one day when your time has come. 


OK?  Now smile real big and carry on……….we love you as much as you love us – now and always.

Kitty Hugs from your Pal Sam!
