 Friday Fill-Ins: Week #34



We are joining this week’s Friendly Fill-Ins hosted by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Today, a couple of us kitties are sharing filling-in with Mom. She maligned us last week, saying we would never help without being bribed with treats. We felt it our duty to prove her wrong! Our completions are in teal italics.

Mauricio: 1. The highlight of my Christmas were the gifts I received from my wife Allie. All the goodies were amazing, including some really great gifts for Mom. Allie is so thoughtful and sweet, and I love her with all my heart. (I am sharing a collage today. Mom, however, took oodles more photos and video, which I will share in a future post. As Mom types this for us, I am camped atop the box where most of the gifts are as Calista Jo continues to try to steal them. We had a bit of smacky paws earlier. You’ll see C.J. photobombing the photo of all the gifties.)


Mau shows off Christmas gifts


Misty May: 2. My New Year’s resolution is to try not to terrorize Astrid. (I have to say I will “try” as I just cannot help myself when it comes to chasing Astrid and making her squeal!)

Mom: 3. This year, 2016, sucked. (We kitties don’t totally agree, but we know it was very hard for her to watch Fiona’s health fail and to lose her on December 1. Mau and Astrid were ecstatic to marry the loves of their lives. Lisbeth was delighted to get a promise ring from Charles. Though we are so sad that our sisfur had to get her wings, it was a meovolous year for the three of us.)

Kitties Blue: 4. Next year, 2017, will be a surprise. (We pray it will be a great year for all our friends, spouses, significant others, Mom and Dad and ourselves.)

This is a blog hop. To join, click on the link to Annie’s blog. It’s in the first paragraph of this post.

We’ll see you tomorrow for Caturday Art.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

I am so sorry about the loss of Fiona. 🙁 Our Angel Bagel Bites went to the Bridge about a week before Christmas. It is sad to see them go.

I hope that 2017 will be a much happier year for you and your family. May it be happy, healthy, and full of hope!

Thank you for participating in the fill-ins. I agree with your Mom that 2016 sucked. We had 2 kitties leave us and so many of our friends ( you included) lost their beloved kitties too. I am glad some of you had a good year though.Those do look like great gifts.Here’s to a better 2017 with no losses( except weight loss, I need that). XO

We agree that 2016 was a bust. What a tough year it really was, and we are hoping and praying for a far better and blessed 2017 for you and all of our friends!
