Feline/Friendship Fridays


squirrel & cat antics


Kizmet spotted a squirrel in the tree outside of the catio. It was chattering away about some perceived fault on the part of the cats or humans. If you cannot see said squirrel, it is the blob about a half inch down and to the right of the branch to the right of Kizmet’s outstretched paw.

Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #255

Time for those fill-ins hosted each week by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Lorianne (Four-Legged Furballs). Last week the Kitties Blue completed three of the four fill-ins and informed me they think they should be able to do them every week. Sometimes, however, the fill-ins do not lend themselves to completion by a cat. So Kitties Blue are warming the bench this week.

1. I wish I knew how to play Mahjong.

2. If offered a free trip to space, I would decline.

3. Dad Tom and I having had our COVID vaccines is the most exciting thing in my life right now.

4. I could give a long lecture on the topic of how to be a volleyball scorekeeper.

Friendly Fill-Ins is a blog hop. You can find the sentences to be filled in on both Ellen and Lorianne’s blogs on Thursdays. And you can join the hop by clicking on the badge below.


We’ll be back tomorrow with some Caturday Art.

Thankful Thursday

Dad Tom and I have designated in our will a close friend (with generous compensation) as the caregiver of any cat who is still part of the household when we are both gone. Today, however, I asked Noelle and Raz’s mom, Sharon (Friends Furever), if she would be willing to take Sawyer into her home.  She said, “yes.” Sawyer is overjoyed that should this occur, he will be with his girlfriend, Noelle. According to Mom Sharon, the feeling is reciprocated. So that is the main and most wonderful thankful ever for us. We know he will be loved and get exceptional care.

I also am thankful for the beauty of spring all around our home. Here are a couple of photos.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Thursday also is the day I write a poem for the poetry challenge presented by Angel Sammy and Teddy from Two Spoiled Cats. This week’s inspiration photo and my poem are below.



Longing for Home

This young woman looks super bored.
Selling candy and cigarettes to strangers
not her idea of a rewarding career.
She’s seen dozens of movies for free,
But she’d rather be on the screen—
An actress in beautiful costumes
With admiring fans applauding her.
She came to Hollywood to be discovered
But found she couldn’t live on dreams.
Iowa or Kansas or wherever she’s from
Is looking pretty good right about now.

If you’d like to try your hand at writing some poetry, you can find the inspiration photo for next week by clicking on the poetry badge below.


While visiting Two Spoiled Cats, please make certain you read Angel Sammy’s poem. He transmits it to Teddy from the Bridge each week, and it is always a winner.

Caturday Art I decided to go back into the archives for a photo to use for today’s art. I found a slightly over-lit photo of Astrid from May 26, 2015.     To create the art I went back to Painnt again. I used the Frühling effect with coloring set on cold. The art nouveau-style […]
