Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #19

It’s time for this fun hop brought to you by 15 And Meowing‘s Ellen and McGuffy’s Reader‘s Annie. Ellen and Annie each select two phrases for participants to complete. Ellen’s are always numbers 1 and 2. And Annie selects numbers 3 and 4. You can join the hop by adding your link on Annie’s blog.

Friendly Fill-Ins


Here are this week’s phrases. My completions are in teal italics.

1. Something healthy I do daily is pet the Kitties Blue. In fact, Fiona is on my lap right now getting lots of loving strokes. Of course, if her daddy were at home, she’d shun me for him. And, as usual, Mauricio is trying to horn in. 

2. Something unhealthy I do daily is drink one or two cans of Diet Coke®. It is my caffeine of choice as I totally dislike coffee.

240_f_102454087_u5rbxdnu0prd5q8gieerkxunozrqhvws3. This Summer, was too, too HOT with more days in our city above 90 degrees than previously recorded. I do not tolerate the heat well and am tired of being sopping wet all the time.

4. This Autumn, I hope we have decent enough weather to cycle more. With the rain and heat of this summer, we were unable to get out as often as we usually do. 

This week’s fill-ins did not lend themselves to talking much about Kitties Blue. But as I did mention Fiona, she gets to have her photo (for the third consecutive day) as part of this post. She was enjoying yet another nap in a sunpuddle on the catio.




Wow, look at those long legs and precious toesies! I think the angle of her head makes this an exceptionally cute pose. You may now “squeee.”

As Fiona is here again today, I’d like to take another opportunity to thank everyone for keeping our little girl in your purrs and prayers. She’s a fighter…when she’s not napping!

Tomorrow is Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. We’ll be participating with some birthday art. Don’t forget to drop in to find out who will be celebrating.

Fiona is just too darling. We couldn’t agree more, enough summer already! Even here is VT it’s just been excruciating.

Uh-oh…my comment disappeared! I agree, it was too hot here, too, to really enjoy things! I am hoping Autumn lets us enjoy it.

Fiona is in our daily thoughts and prayers. Chloe Jo is stable, right now, though has these issues, too. It breaks our heart to see these sweet girls go through this. Hugs to you all. ❤

Nice fill-ins. Mom doesn’t drink coffee either or I should say she has a cup of coffee a year to be sociable. Tea is great and a diet pepsi a day. What’s unhealthy about that? It’s not like mom drink the whole case in one day.

Fiona, the sun puddle expert. How can you resist petting such intense cuteness? 🙂

Nice to see Fiona enjoying the sun. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I hate the heat too. I am thankful that it was 45 degrees this morning. I can’t drink diet coke, it makes me silly. I drink lots of coffee with no effect, but diet coke gets me with a small amount.

We love your answers! Except for #2 (I’m not much of a pop drinker – I get my caffeine fix from tea), we could be twins with these answers. I used to go out and bicycle all the time, but have not done so at all this year. (Gasp!) I am hoping for a gorgeous autumn just like you are! And, Fiona, you are too precious! We are always purring and praying for you, sweet girl. We’ll see you tomorrow and can’t wait for the birthday art!

It’s great to see Fiona doing so well and enjoying the finer things in life like sunbeams. Way to go, Fi. Keep fighting. (But not fighting your humans when it’s time for meds, that’s not what we meant.)

Sweet photo of Fiona having a sunpuddle nap…….we think she’s doing a great job carrying on in spite of her CKD. We also think the fill-ins today were super duper! We just love that hop AND your Sunday Selfie one too! We love to hop!

Hugs, Sammy
