Fill-Ins: Week #104

Wow, two whole years of fill-ins. That flew by quickly. The sentences Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Annie (McGuffy’s Reader) have provided for us each week have been fun and sometimes difficult to complete. I often feel my fill-ins could be more thoughtful, but most weeks my mind goes blank when looking at those empty lines.

I’d like to thank Annie and Ellen for being our hosts these past two years and challenging us to look within ourselves as we ponder what to share. Annie is taking a little blogging break, so Ellen has teamed with Lorianne at Four-Legged Furballs to continue doing the blog hop each Friday. If you click on the Fill-Ins badge, you’ll be transported to the link where you can add your post.

With that said, here are this week’s fill-ins. I had a little help from two of the Kitties Blue, Cooper Murphy and Mauricio. All our completions are in teal italics.

1. I spend too many hours per day online.

2. Cooper Murphy: When I go online, I use my butt and occasionally my paws. (I am sorry I don’t have any new photos of my technique to share.)









3. Mauricio: Mother’s Day is a very important day. If we are lucky, as kittens our cat mom takes care of us. And when she has finished her job, our human mom takes over. Whether cat or human, each gives us everything we need to grow up healthy, strong and happy. For that, we owe them all our love and appreciation. So try not to hork in the human’s shoe this Sunday. Maybe even let them give you a hug!

Mau & Mom

4. I wish I could heal Sawyer. For those who don’t know, Sawyer has been having seizures since the beginning of February. This is very scary and breaks Dad Tom’s and my heart each time it happens. He is on medication, but they continue to occur, often in times of stress. Sawyer will write a post in the near future to tell you more. For now, we ask for your prayers and purrs and maybe a little POTP as well.

We’ll see everyone back here tomorrow for Caturday Art.

Love the answers especially #3. Have you tried CBD oil for Sawyer’s seizures? It’s supposed to be really good with them. Just find a reputable company.

Oh how scary it must be for little Sawyer and the family when he has a seizure. Everyone at our house is sending The POTP to the cute little guy as well as lots and lots of purrs and prayers. I am sending all my love and gratitude that I have most beautiful girl cat in my life. Ms Lisbeth you fill my dreams and daily thoughts.

Cooper Murphy and Ellie would get along … and cause computer trouble together. She loves to sit on my keyboard while I try to blog. Mau, we just can’t get over your handsome black nose splotch. We hope you get to the bottom of Sawyer’s seizures! I can’t even imagine how scary they must be for all of you (including him)!

We love your fill in responses. We’re sorry Sawyer is having problems. We send him a ton of purrs and hope the medication will help him. The mom says she spends too much time on line too.

Great answers ! We send Sawyer tons of purrs. Purrs


Mary McNeil May 11, 2018 at 4:40 pm

Purrayers & POTP for Sawyer ! At least you have a few clues as to what may be causing them.
My cats use the same computer technique as Cooper Murphy!


Ellen Pilch May 11, 2018 at 2:33 pm

Thank you for these great answers to the fill-ins. I am sorry that Sawyer is having seizures, I will be praying for him. XO

Great fill-ins this week, guys. We’re sending all our purrs to Sawyer in hopes they will help. *whispers* We’re here for you, buddy

Prayers for Sawyer. Our Little Bit had seizures because of her liver. We miss her so.

Have a purrfect day. My best to your peeps. ♥

Our answer to #1 is identical. I really need to rein in my web surfing. Cooper Murphy, Thimble 100% approves of your computer usage. She also loves to sit on the computer, type away with her paws, slap it a little, poke at it, and the whole nine yards. Mauricio, your thoughts on Mother’s Day are simply purrfect!

We are sending all of our purrs, woofs, and prayers to Sawyer! For what it’s worth, I thought I’d share that I have known and cared for a couple of cats and dogs with epilepsy. I’m sure it is terrifying to watch your furbaby go through that. One of the cats I used to pet-sit had a lot of trouble with her seizures until they found just the right dosage and timing of her phenobarbital. When they found that happy medium, she went years without a seizure. Another cat I knew had seizures on and off his entire life, and he lived to be 20 years old. No matter what, your Sawyer is so blessed, as he has the best care and most loving home he could ever have hoped for. We are purring and praying for his condition to start showing improvement!

Good thing Allie was in Mom’s lap or she would have fallen over after seeing that great photo of her husband Mau!

We’re purring and praying for little Sawyer. It breaks our hearts that he has to go through this.

The Florida Furkids with tons and tons of smoochies and love to Mau from Allie

ps – our Mom LOVES your top!

I love this fill-ins. So sorry to hear about Sawyer, POTP all the way to him.


Linda Arthur Tejera May 11, 2018 at 7:31 am

Such wonderful photos. And, Cooper, you’re not alone in your typing techniques! Many is the time I’ve walked away from my laptop only to return and find Inky “typing” away on the keyboard! I am so sorry about little Sawyer. I don’t know if I missed that before or what, but I’m sending heartfelt prayers that the little precious furrball can be cured.

We’re missing Fill-ins this week but will be BACK next week as we love doing them. I think Cooper has a very talented butt if he’s able to work on the computer that way….I’ll have to give that a try! We continue to pray for little Sawyer that the seizure monster will GO AWAY FOREVER. It’s hard to imagine just how confusing that must be to have that happen out of nowhere – and to be so exhausted afterwards. We send Sawyer special hugs but hugs to everyone else too!

Love, Teddy and Mom
