Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #111

This week, Kitties Blue have passed on helping with fill-ins, so I’m on my own. They collectively agreed that “treats” should be the fill-in for numbers two through four.

1. Fireworks used to impress me more when I was younger than they do now. In fairness to some great fireworks displays I have seen, those in our city are only mediocre. 

2. My favorite 4th of July picnic food is would be my homemade macaroni salad if we picnicked on the 4th.

3. I begin every day with opening the cat door to the catio, unless Dad Tom does it first.

4. Friendship is the best thing since sliced bread; though, friends probably existed long before anyone thought of slicing bread prior to selling it.

p.s. My new cat ears were a gift from Pam. Aren’t they spectacular!

Friendly Fill-Ins is a blog hop, currently being hosted by Ellen from 15 And Meowing and Lorianne from Four-Legged Furballs. The sentences to fill-in can be found on both blogs each Thursday. The hop takes place at Four-Legged Furballs on Friday. Click on the badge above to go there.

Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I completely agree with #4. How fun that you and Pam were able to get together. . Have a great weekend! XO

You look pawesome in those ears! We don’t like fireworks because they scare some floofy white cat. Mommy does like the fireworks at Disneyland and that’s it.

Congrats to the winners of the socks! We’re still crossing paws!

I start each day by scooping the litter boxes! A habit started when Chuck first showed urinary tract problems, then his constipation. By doing it first thing, it’s a habit and the cats like the routine. I’m only half-awake…

We enjoyed your answers and that wonderful photo too!

Jackie Avery June 29, 2018 at 11:14 am

That is a lovely photo of you and Pam.

Those are great cat ears, and even better because they were a gift from a friend! I don’t enjoy fireworks as much as I used to either. They’re fun for the humans, but I worry about how much they scare the animals. 🙂

Linda Arthur Tejera June 29, 2018 at 7:51 am

I must say those are all great answers! I begin my day by feeding seven hungry mouths! LOL! Cute cat ears indeed. Friendship is wonderful. I went back home and spent time with my best friend of 61 years! 😀

How fun that you got to see Teddy’s human! BTW, my human says you HAVE to post the macaroni salad recipe. She loves macaroni salad and loves hearing about everyone’s versions.
