CATS & DOG(WOOD)S

by Janet Blue on March 22, 2019

Update from Yesterday’s Post

After calling out the content thief (Giulietta told you about yesterday) both on Twitter and their blog, I am feeling a little better. Unbelievably, they stole yesterday’s post where Giulietta notified everyone of their thievery. This person is either really S-T-U-P-I-D or has some very big you-know-whats. I plan to continue doing the same until I can get all the proper forms filled out to stop this.

Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #149

I managed to do the Fill-Ins all by myself this week. My completions are in teal italics.

1. I admire Michelle Obama for her grace, intelligence, style, energy and philanthropy.

2. I can’t wait for the dogwood trees to bloom.

 

Dogwood Trees in Bloom – April, 2015

 

3. I’m proud to say we have welcomed 19 Kitties Blue into our lives beginning in the mid-80s.

Here are a few pictures of past Kitties Blue. To see all those who came before the current Kitties Blue crew visit our The Felines page.

GIULIETTA TAKES OVER

by Janet Blue on March 21, 2019

Giulietta Reporting for Kitties Blue

So, I am in charge of the blog today. I definitely didn’t expect that to happen. Here’s the scenario: Mom is feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. Sawyer had two grand mal seizures in four days.

She’s also discouraged about blogging, as our posts are being stolen by Dog and Cat Pet 2000. Finding time to complete the forms needed to get these posts taken down is weighing on her.

Of course, there is the construction project. Windows, a roof and walls are in place, but days continue to slip by with no one on the job.

Her computer continues to give her problems as well. That definitely doesn’t make blogging and visiting friends much fun.

We thought with spring finally here she would perk up and maybe she will. She tells us always to believe in and look for a silver lining, We are praying she can find hers.

Today is Thoroughly Poetic Thursday at Two Spoiled Cats, but Mom’s poetry mojo continues to be on the fritz. With apologies to Angel Sammy and Teddy, we have no poem today. Please do visit them to read Sammy’s poem. It’s always terrific!

Thankful Thursday

We are participating in the Thankful Thursday blog hop, as some of us kitties have things for which we are grateful.

Thankful ThursdayPersonally, I am grateful for all the birthday wishes I received on Monday. It’s hard to have yet another birthday without Fiona here to celebrate with me, but the love and support of so many friends and supporters, especially my special friend, Clooney, made for a great day. I also got a nip rainbow and super nice brushing from Mom.

Mau and Cooper Murphy also have reason to be thankful this week. They made it through a 40-minutes video about “icky” snakes at Cat Scouts, completed their homework and received 100% on their test. They now know more about snakes than they ever wanted.

Mom has promised us that she will get herself back on track as soon as possible.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by Brian. To join the hop, post for what you are thankful and then click on Brian’s badge below.

Purrs and paw-pats, Giulietta

GIULIETTA TURNS NINE

March 18, 2019

Happy Birthday Today Giulietta celebrates her ninth birthday, as does her sister, Angel Fiona. These sisters were the most adorable kittens and the best of friends. They were inseparable right up until Fiona flew off to the Rainbow Bridge. It breaks our hearts that Fiona isn’t here to celebrate with Giulietta. We suspect the other […]

SHOUT OUT TO ST. GERTRUDE

March 17, 2019

Sunday Selfies: Week #240 My selfie may be fancied up for St Patrick’s Day, but Kitties Blue and I are honoring St. Gertrude of Nivelles on her Feast Day. She was adopted as the Patron Saint of Cats and Cat Lovers around 1981. She is not officially recognized for this by the Vatican.     […]

SAWYER’S HAPPY COLOR HEART ART

March 16, 2019

Caturday Art I decided to try something a bit different for this week’s art. Unfortunately it didn’t turn out as well as I had hoped. I used a photo of Sawyer on the catio as a background and the image of a cat I  “colored’ using the app, Happy Color, as an overlay. If you were […]

March 15, 2019

Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #148 This week’s fill-ins, hosted by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Lorianne (Four-Legged Furballs), were particularly difficult, so I had to call on the kitties to help me. The only one I completed is #3. We all used teal italics for our completions. 1. Sawyer: I could live on treats. 2. Astrid: […]

THOROUGHLY POETIC & THANKFUL THURSDAY

March 14, 2019

Throughly Poetic Thursday I must apologize to Angel Sammy and Teddy (Two Spoiled Cats) that the part of my brain where my poetry aptitude resides seems to have taken a sabbatical. After a couple of false starts, I only was able to produce a haiku. Here’s this week’s inspiration photo and my haiku.   A […]

SPARKS OF OPPORTUNITY & STRENGTH

March 11, 2019

Sparks   Entering the seventh decade of my life a few days ago has me thinking about aging. According to AARP and a Harris Poll, old age now begins at 74, which means I am not yet old. My mother, however, died at age 45, my sister at 66 and my dad at 76. That […]
