Feline/Friendship Friday

Cooper Murphy and Raleigh met nose to nose for the first time a couple of days ago. Dad Tom and I held our collective breaths, as Cooper Murphy can be a bit hissy at times. After this brief and uneventful encounter, the two went their separate ways—Cooper Murphy back to the catio and Raleigh back to the kitten enclosure.

Cooper Murphy and Raleigh are participating in the Feline and Friendship Friday blog hops at Comedy Plus and Create With Joy respectively.

Jigsaw Puzzle

I thought you might enjoy completing a jigsaw puzzle of this photo.

Friendly Fill-Ins

As happens most weeks, I needed to get some help with fill-Ins. That help often comes from Sawyer, and it did again. We both used teal italics for our fill-ins, and any explanatory information is in parentheses

1. I would like to see what books are on Michele Obama’s bookshelves.

2. Sawyer: I adore Noelle.

3. There is no amount of money you could pay me to make me give up any of the Kitties Blue.

4. When I failed to drink my milk as a kid, I was forced to sit at the table until I did. (I was diagnosed as lactose intolerant in my early 30s.)

Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Lorianne (Four-Legged Furballs) host the Friendly Fill-Ins blog hop. You can find the incomplete sentences on both blogs each Thursday if you’d like to participate. Click on the Fill-Ins badge to join the hop.


Thanks so much for visiting. Join us again tomorrow for some Caturday Art.

I am glad their first encounter went well. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers except I am sorry you were forced to drink milk when it made you sick. Did you see Michele Obama has another book coming out soon? XO

That meeting was really pretty nice, way to go you two! Those were good answers too. Our Dad is lactose intolerant, no dairy of any kind.

Such a great photo of two reds meeting for the first time. We are happy that Cooper Murphy was a great big brother.
We know at our house that is not always the case.
We hope they become good friends.

Oh boy! BIG ginger meets LITTLE ginger and I bet they wind up being ginger buddies before long. That’s a PERFECT photo – a real keeper. Your Mom and Sawyer did a good job on the fill-ins too!!

Hugs. Teddy

That is such a sweet photo of Cooper Murphy and Raleigh.
I was the same with #4 but it was tea for me. I don’t think I was intolerant to it but never got tested. I hated the taste but had to drink it, often being sick afterwards. I was relieved when I was old enough to say what I didn’t want to drink and have never touched tea since.

Some parents’ ideas should be shelved, that’s for sure! When we see kids who are acting up we say, Some parents should be drowned at birth! Just joking.
