This is week number eight for the Friendly Friday Fill-Ins hosted by Ellen (15 and Meowing
) and Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). This is a blog hop. You can enter your link on Annie’s blog.
My fill-ins are in teal italics.
1. I never thought I would miss writing and sending snail-mail letters, but I do.
2. Every 4th of July we watch the fireworks from our upper deck while the kitties stay inside.
3. If I knew blogging about the kitties would become my passion, I would have started long before 2012.
4. I have trouble with my attention span and completing one project prior to moving on to another.
Phooey, we missed writing a poem yesterday for Sammy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday
. It’s week number three and the letter of the day was “C. As C
alista Jo wrote our Thursday post and mentioned C
atnip, I imagine this is what she would have written.
Catnip Crazies by Calista Jo
Catnip is fine.
Catnip is good.
It gives me a buzz
Under my hood.
I love to sniff it
And roll in it all day,
But eating it is what
Makes me want to play.
I get frisky and crazy
And bounce all around,
Until I fall over
And collapse in a mound.
C.J. may have written the poem, but Lily Olivia is sharing her post roll-in-the-nip photo.

We can totally re;ate to that poem!!
And meowmy says so can she about the fill in answers!!
Aww…cute poem! I think I know some cats who do that, too. But, each of ours is different, really. I agree, I miss snail mail, too. It seemed more personal, to take the time to do each step to connect. I think I am surprised that you have trouble staying on task. You seem so organized. I love you anyway! Hugs!
Great poem ! Wonderful tribute to nip ! Zorro sends CJ a kiss. Purrs
I agree with # 3 & 4, but do not miss looking for my stamps, which my husband never seemed to put back where they belonged… Have a great 4th!

An Lily O yur so adoorabull!!!
***paw kissesss*** Siddhartha Henry xxxx
That’s a pawsome poem. OMC, Calista Jo…could you get anymore catnip on you?? 😉
I have problems completing projects too. I get so excited and can’t wait to start, then after an hour, I come up with ANOTHER idea that I’m so excited about that I can’t wait to start. So I don’t wait. And this is why I have as many ‘draft’ posts as published ones!!! I look through the drafts and think, “Wow! These are all REALLY good! But I don’t have ANY ideas to write about for my next post!” I too wish I’d starting blogging earlier. Bear’s got a lot of stories to tell and I’ve lost some in my mind that I know people would’ve enjoyed. Actually, blogging and creating a permanent record of Bear and my life together, is one of the main reasons I’ve kept up with it when I get discouraged.
Love your ode to catnip, Calista Jo.
I sure miss the excitement of getting a card or letter in the mail – even though it’s easier to keep in touch by email.
