Awww Mondays



Kizmet is a huge fan of TV. She usually prefers sporting events, but in this case she was watching the news.

Kizmet is joining the Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus.



It snowed/sleeted/snowed yesterday, which prompted me to find a Spark which mentioned snow that was also meaningful. I liked this one by Samuel Coleridge. The photo is one of Dad Tom’s.



Sparks is the creation of Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend. Annie stated when she began Sparks, “I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world.”

Betty White Challenge

Today is actress Betty White’s birthday She would have turned 100 had she not passed away in her sleep on December 31. She was a huge animal lover and supporter of nonprofit organizations benefiting animals. In her memory, please select a local animal shelter or rescue and make a donation of at least $5 in her name. We will be donating to Barn Cat Buddies, the rescue from which we adopted Astrid and Calista Jo.

The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky

Tomorrow is our favorite day of the week, as it’s when Periwinkle and Stinky share an adventure. Stinky has planned another exciting, local activity, and he would be delighted if you join Periwinkle and him. These two tabbies have lots of fun when they are together and love sharing their adventures with all of you.

That s a really good spark!

And how cool that they thought up to have a donate-a-thon for Betty White’s honor. I think this should become an annual event.

Donated in honor of Betty White today! Love Kizmet watching TV. My cats have never done that.

Kismet is hilarious! (Jo Jo sits on the small cat tree in front of the tv bookcase). And the Spark is terrific! So appropriate for January. And Tom’s photo is wonderful. We donated to our local shelter today in honor of Betty White! She was terrific!

Trust me, Kizmet, there’s nothing good to watch on the news. Stick to sporting events. 🙂 We donated to our local rescue group and animal shelter on the island in Miss Betty’s memory,

Kizmet, sure loves watching TV. She probably loves during sporting events the ball going back and forth depending on what sport she is watching. Happy Birthday to the wonderful Betty White. She was one of the most wonderful people to know. We always loved seeing her from when we were little kids until now as adults. This is such a great idea to remember her for her 100th birthday. Thanks for sharing. Have a great rest of your week.

I’ve never had a kitty that watched television. So adorable.

Love the Spark. Spot on.

I participated in the Betty White challenge this morning. An excellent thing to do.

Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. Scritches all around, a smooch to Cooper Murphy and a big hug to you. ♥

Kizmet is smart to keep up on the news!! We don’t really pay attention to any TV other than BirdTV.

Periwinkle can’t wait for tomorrow!

The Florida Furkids with love and whisker kisses to Sawyer from Noelle

Yes, that quote is something most of us could do better when doling out the advice. Kizmet, we love that picture of you in front of the TV. We hope you saw something other than bad news. XOX Xena, Lucy and Chia

My mom won’t turn the TV on except for re-runs.

Pam and Teddy January 17, 2022 at 5:08 am

Kizmet does seem to enjoy her TV……Teddy occasionally watches for a minute or two but only watches if there’s a lot of movement going on like a football game for instance! Love the quote……it’s true too……if advice is given softly it’s more welcome. We are donating to Fauquier County SPCA which is where we adopted Angel Sammy and Teddy. I know Betty White is smiling from heaven at this effort to make a difference to shelters and rescues in honor of her 100th birthday!

Hugs, Pam and Teddy too
