Feline & Friendship Fridays



Cooper Murphy wonders what the heck is up with Mau after he overindulges in the wicked nip! And both boys join the Feline Friday blog hop at Comedy Plus and the Friendship Friday blog hop at Create with Joy.








Friendly Fill-Ins

The kitties and I are joining the Feline Friday blog hop; though, they have left me to my own devices to fill-in. The hop is hosted by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Lorianne (iFour-Legged Furballs). The sentences to be filled in can be found on both blogs on Thursday. To join the hop, click on the badge.

I have used teal italics for my fill-ins.

1. My plans for the weekend include spreading mulch in some of my flower beds.

2. I don’t like it when our neighbors set off loud fireworks. 

3. I’m grateful I have the freedom to select my own doctors.

4. Cats, of course, make a house a home.

Birthday Giveaway Winner

I gave our readers a little puzzle to solve on Sawyer’s birthday.  I promised a surprise package to the first commenter to identify a change I made to this page. The first to identify the change (I am wearing a face mask in our logo.) was our first commenter, Joyce Moore. Many others also correctly identified the change. Sawyer asked me to send a prize to each of you, but unfortunately the postage alone would mean he’d have to give up his treats for the next few months. When I told him that, he decided to withdraw his request! So, Joyce, I’ll be sending you an e-mail to get your mailing address. Congratulations.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

I skipped last Thursday’s poetry challenge but am back today to join Teddy and Angel Sammy, our hosts from Two Spoiled Cats.

Here is this week’s inspiration photo and my poem.



The Harbinger

A lone, wee flower peeking
Through the cracked pavement,
In a dot of sunlight,
Brings a smile to my face.
Broken dreams, lost loves
Disappointments and failures
Are forgotten, for if this
Single bloom can find its way
Through a fissure, I can
Conquer any obstacle,
Solve any problem and
enjoy a life filled with
gratitude and wellbeing.

If you’d like to join Poetic Thursday, click on the badge above. You’ll find the photo for next week. While visiting Two Spoiled Cats, make certain you read Angel Sammy’s poem. He transmits it to Teddy from the Rainbow Bridge, and it is always thoughtful and well-crafted. Other poets leave links to their works in the comments, and you might want to check those out as well.

Thankful Thursday

Sawyer is here to share his thankfuls today and join the Thankful Thursday blog hop at Brian’s Home. Those thankfuls include a 12-day streak without a seizure, this birthday card from Teddy (Two Spoiled Cats) as well as the two he shared yesterday. He’s also grateful to all who attended his third birthday party and left their kind words and well wishes.



Dad Tom and I are thankful that we, our friends and family remain healthy. We are particularly thankful that we live in a state and area (southwest Virginia) where cases of and deaths from COVID-19 remain low. Nonetheless, we remain careful and vigilant. We pray you are doing the same and  remain healthy.

Caturday Art     Cooper Murphy was practicing his yoga while bathing on the catio. He looked so cute, but the photo came out muddy and blurry due to the back lighting. That’s my favorite type of photo to use for art. To artify Cooper’s photo I used the Gnocchied filter with analog coloring from […]
