Sunday Selfie Hop


Time to HOP!    Sunday is Selfie Hop day with Kitties Blue.   You ought to join us – if you want to, click their badge above and go for it.    We’ll see you there.

Mom realized yesterday when she grabbed her camera to take a couple of photos of me that almost ALL MY PHOTOS are the same.    I’m either in the Granny Chair in the guest room, or on the floor with my belly up, or SOUND ASLEEP and she’s right!    Of course the fact that I won’t sit still (usually) long enough for her to take my photo MIGHT be part of the reason…….but then there’s the fact that I do sleep a lot to be considered.

Here’s the photo she took of me yesterday – technically it’s not a selfie because I didn’t take it MYSELF but I’ve delegated the responsibility to my Mom so that counts!

See what I mean though?   I must have shared a bazillion photos that look just like this with you……………From this chair I can see across the upstairs hall to Mom’s office where I can keep an eagle eye on her while she’s at her computer………..however, obviously right now my eagle eye (and the other one too) are CLOSED TIGHT while I sleep.

I know I’ve probably told you why we call that chair I’m in “THE GRANNY CHAIR” but I’ll tell you again anyway.   The chair itself belonged to my Dad’s Mom and when she went to the Bridge Dad got it.    The quilt on the back of the chair belonged to my Mom’s Mom and it was a wedding gift to her when she married my Mom’s Dad in 1947.    Perfectly good name for that chair would be THE GRANNY CHAIR right?

Happy Sunday!!!  

P.S.   Did you think I forgot to do a puzzle for you puzzlers?   No I didn’t – I was saving it for last…..AND I’m not telling you who or what the puzzle is of.   You’ll just have to GO FOR IT!    Ready?   Set?   Go!

Sunday Selfie


Sunday!   Time for the Selfie Blog Hop hosted by our good buddies the Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head.    We just post a photo of our fabulous selves and post it on their blog using the LINKY TOOL and strut our stuff.   Couldn’t be easier than that right?   So why not join us?  Click their badge above and GO FOR IT!

My Mom took a couple of photos of me yesterday – one WOKE ME UP from a floor nap in her office and the other I’ll save for another time – it was just a photo of my butt while I was enjoying a SINK DRINK.

This was the one she tried to SNEAK while I was asleep…………..What is this Mom?   Candid Camera?????    She used her favorite editing program, LUNAPIC, and the Storytime Art Effect.

We hope you are having a perfectly fabulous Sunday wherever you are………………..

Yep – I had my lasers on – think she got the message that I didn’t want to be disturbed??????

Love, Teddy

Still Pouting Here…….

Well I don’t look QUITE this pitiful but it’s close……

Of course I’m being spoiled here while Mom and Dad are away but it’s never the same as the spoiling we get by our very own PERSONAL Mom and Dad right?    Yeah.   Well, I only have today, tomorrow, and then the next day I will get a MOMMY HUG and I can’t wait for that.

I am getting all caught up on my naps though.   No interruptions…………..just quiet……….peace and quiet…………

I am a Master Snoozer but then aren’t all kitties?   That’s what they told me at the shelter anyway.   So far I must say they didn’t steer me wrong at that place.  They said that one day someone would come to the shelter and see me and fall in love with me and if I was EXTRA CUTE, they wouldn’t be able to resist me.    Mom told me that I did all the right things that day – – – she took me out of the cage to meet me and I immediately hugged her and started making biscuits in the air, on the floor, in her lap, on the furniture – I was just very HAPPY.    I knew they would find me irresistible!   

I figure if I just do a whole lot of sleeping, it will make the time go faster and they will be home before I know it.    So if you’ll excuse me, I think I’ll drift off again……..I’ll be back tomorrow though!    I know you couldn’t do without a TEDDY FIX every day even if Mom isn’t here to help me do my blog properly – I can’t even ANSWER any comments you make.   WHAAAAA…….

At least my old friend Mr. Mousie who is now Mr. Rags hasn’t deserted me!


We also decided to post a photo (a non-Teaser) here just so that our good buddy and Teaser fan, the Evil Squirrel (who turns our Teaser photos into a tour of every kind of prison you can imagine in the whole world!) can have a WHACK at telling all of us “WHAT PRISON IS THIS????”    Alright ES………GO FOR IT !!

Make sure you check our blog comments to see what Evil Squirrel has to say about this lovely prison!


Love, Teddy




Yes, I am admitting here and now that a majority of time on most of my days for the past year or so is spent in sweet repose……………..from my toes to my nose, I sleep ever so deep and trust me, Mom is happy about that because when I’m awake I’m very…………………….VOCAL.    Yeah, that’s the nice way to say it – I’m usually calling her from somewhere in the house – I need her to do something for me – clean my litterbox, fill up the kibble bowl, let me outside, get in her chair so I can pop up onto her lap for a brush…………..whatever I want, I get.   Trust me.   Why do you think my blog is called ONE SPOILED CAT????

Anyway, I’m wandering off point here – the point is I love sleeping more than ever in my whole life……maybe it’s the medication I take, maybe it’s the hyperthyroid issue, maybe it’s my age, maybe it’s just because I LOVE TO SLEEP?????    Mom took some photos of me yesterday and feels compelled to show them so here I am – in all my glory…..snoring away on the rug in Mom’s room.

Zoom out and I’m still in LALA land…..and I’m smiling!

These days when I’m asleep I’m REALLY asleep – Mom can come and go in the room and I’m oblivious….she can bump her chair into her desk – I don’t hear it……..she can cough, sneeze, burp, I’m unaware.   Being hard of hearing is swell!   Mom is amazed that when I’m lying like this on the floor I actually look chubby.   In fact, I’m slim and trim now and when Mom feels my backbone she gets depressed – Dad tells her to “get a grip woman!   Sam’s better off without the weight on him!”………….and I am.   I don’t hobble around like I used to because of my achy joints!   WOOT!

I think the other photos Mom has taken of me snoring resting lately you’ve all seen…….but in case someone out there is a “sleeping cat photo fanatic”……here are some more of ME for your viewing pleasure……

So that’s the end of today’s show…………….ME ME ME ME, it’s all about ME.    Mom has been a flashy box crazy lady for the past six months….like she wants to chronicle and record every breath I take…………..well you never know how many breaths you ARE going to take and you never know what tomorrow will bring so I indulge her.   She’s my Mom.   Moms are super cool.

Before I leave……….I just want to say something about our lovely friends at All Fur One and One Fur All because their wonderful sweet pup Forrest flew off to the Bridge at home in the sunshine with his Mom and Dad there to help ease the way for him.   We’ve all either experienced this or will one day, and while we know it’s what has to be done or what must be, it’s NEVER easy.   I just want to say Mom and I are sending them and their whole family – furry and human – a HUGE HUG…………Ann Adamus of Zoolatry did a beautiful badge for Forrest……..he lived “the sweet life” Down Under and this is the way I will always think of him – looking out over the outback.    Farewell Forrest – I will look for you when I get there…..you can believe it my friend.


Happy Thursday and give those you love a hug……

Here’s one from me!  

HUG, Sammy

Snooze Day


Yep – it’s Snooze Day at my house………….we had all this big hubbub yesterday because it was my Mom and Dad’s anniversary but today – is SAMMY DAY!   I get to sleep as much as I want.  Nobody bugging me…….nobody turning on the TV or the radio or ANYTHING – why?  Because I have the house to myself today!

Every possible surface that I can sleep on will be used today………..

It's good to be me...... Ahh....this spot will be sunny for AT LEAST another hour!Sam Tent Nap

Now that’s what I call a TRULY relaxing day!   I hope you have one too………….we deserve to have a day to catch up on our beauty sleep once in a while…..it’s not easy being this cute 24/7 is it?!!!!!

Love, Sammy the Snoozer


Pre-Christmas Eve Day (what?)


Hey Hey Hey!!!!   Time’s almost here everyone…………..I’m sure Santa is stuffing all kinds of stuff into his sleigh and his big bag thingie right about now – – – the reindeer are getting extra food because they’re gonna be working themselves to bits tomorrow night – Mrs. Santa’s probably packing a big lunch box for Hubby so he can have some snacks to tide him over until he begins visiting houses and eating about seven bazillion cookies and drinking three bazillion glasses of milk……in other words – even the Monday before Christmas Eve is probably BUSY!

Around here it isn’t busy though.  Everything is done…….we’re just taking it easy…….I looked at my pile of e-cards again and even though I know you’ve seen most of these elsewhere, I say “SO WHAT!!” – they’re FUN to see over and over AND I’m reminded yet again that blogville is full to the brim of fun friends and talented photoshoppers and photographers……”Tis the season” for sure!!   I also got a lot of cards mailed to me – and I love those too but Mom won’t rip them off the wall to take a photo of them…..(darn!).

I’ve had a pile of emails asking if we will be having a Tuesday Teaser even though tomorrow is Christmas Eve…………….short answer?


So, you may have thought I’d give you the day off since it’s Christmas Eve but THINK AGAIN………..there will be a Teaser………..and I hope you won’t be so busy that you miss it.

I want to thank all my kind hearted and generous buddies who have sent me presents……I’m not going to show me opening all of them up because I haven’t – Mom’s being stubborn about some of them like my Secret Paws box from Spitty for instance 😦 😦   BUT I do want to thank each and every one of you for your thoughtfulness………I’m touched……….and thrilled as I always am that I have so many fabulous friends.

Sam Loves His Friends!

Thanks to all of you!

I hope you don’t get caught up in the frenzy of the day before the day before Christmas (hahahaha) and you’re able to take it easy today – We all usually celebrate having an “EASY” Sunday…..let’s make Monday just like that – what do you say??
