Did you miss us? Mom decided she needed a “personal” day, and so we allowed her to take the day off yesterday. Normally we wouldn’t have been so generous, but she was pooped. She spent five hours working in her gardens, and then had to take Cooper Murphy to Book Club at Cat Scouts in the evening. We think she’s still tired, but we are back. Two days away would just mean she’s goofing off.

Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #221

Since it is Friday, we are participating in the Friendly Fill-Ins blog hop hosted by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Lorianne (Four-Legged Furballs). We did make Mom complete all but one of the fill-ins. We’ve given her enough slack for like…the next year!

She and Sawyer, who completed #4, both used teal italics.

1. I like ketchup on my hot dogs (along with mustard and relish), but I don’t remember the last time I ate a hot dog.

2. The COVID-19 Quarantine reminds me of the half of a year I was laid up with a broken leg.

3. It pains me to know that Mau is gone, and we will never see him again.

4. SAWYER: I can’t go a day without treats.

Friday Fill-Ins is meant to give those who participate the opportunity to get to know each other better. Ellen and Lorianne each select two sentences to be filled in. You can find all four on their blogs on Thursday. The hop is at Four-Legged Furballs. To go there click on the badge.

Belated Thankful Thursday

Mom had some thankfuls this week, so we didn’t want to miss the hop; though, we are a day late.

She is especially thankful that after seven-and-a-half months, she was discharged from physical therapy. Now she will be stuck at home even more, and we are not certain how she will deal with that. We are going to have to try to give her lots more attention.

She was First Commenter on the Tuesday Teaser at Two Spoiled Cats once again. And this time she was the one and only. Here’s the badge she received.

We kitties have no particular thankfuls this week. Life is good for us everyday, except for Sawyer when he has a seizure. But the little fellow always bounces back, thankfully.

Though a day late, we are joining the Thankful Thursday blog hop hosted by Brian.

Feline/Friendship Friday



Astrid is enjoying a snoozy snuggled next to Mom. She is joining the Feline Friday blog hop at Comedy Plus and the Friendship Friday blog hop at Create With Joy.

Astrid looks so comfy there. It makes us want to curl up and take a nap with her.

Astrid is a cutie. Congrats on completing all those months of physical therapy. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins. I know you are sad about Mau, but you will meet again, I truly believe that. XO

Great fill-ins. I was visiting Friends Furever and Mau’s wife is missing him horribly too.

Astrid is a beautiful girl. Aw.

Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. Scritches to all the kitties and a big healing hug for the mom. ♥

Well your Mom deserves a personal day ONCE in a while! All that work in her gardens especially when it’s super hot and humid really takes a lot of energy and time. Anyway, concats on being the First Commenter on the Teaser this week and also concats on capturing a sweet curled up Astrid napping away next to Mom. Happy Friday.

Hugs, Teddy
