We were supposed to have a review and giveaway for another PetSafe FroliCat product yesterday, but the sickcretary (that’s right, we had to change her name) couldn’t get it together. That is now scheduled for Monday, and you won’t want to miss it. We like this toy even more than the Fox Den.
Today we’ll be pawticipating in both the Caturday Art and Friendly Fill-Ins blog hops.
Cooper Murphy is here again today with another photo taken on the catio when we were having much warmer weather. We know Cooper is getting an unprecedented amount of blog time, but as the newbie, he feels as if he has lots of catching up to do.
To create today’s art, the sickretary used the photo to the right, added the HDR filter from Picasa followed by the Purple Dawn effect from Dreamscope with a border added using Picasa. She liked how the Dreamscope effect made Cooper look as if he’s wearing a bandana, just like those other ginger boys, Travis and Crockett, at Lone Star Cats. If you don’t know them, go visit! They’re a hoot.

Friendly Fill-Ins : Week #43
4. This Winter was the second warmest on record for where we live in VA.
As we kitties have been writing all the posts recently, we allowed the sickretary to do the fill-ins. Her completions are in teal italics.
Annie from McGuffy’s Reader and Ellen from 15 And Meowing are the hosts for the fill-ins blog hop. You can join the hop by visiting Annie’s blog.
Sunday Selfies Reminder
Wow, another week has flown by. All we have to show for it around here are a lack of sleep from listening to all that hacking and coughing and wastebaskets filled with tissues. MOUSES!
Tomorrow we will be having a special post with a big announcement and two-fur selfie. It’s a hop you won’t want to miss. So…put a smile on your face, grab the phone or camera, snap your selfie and join in the fun.
We apologize for our lack of visiting and commenting. We can’t predict when our lives will return to normal, but we are praying that will occur by the end on this coming week. If not, we have all agreed to band together and dig a big whole in the backyard and dump in Mrs. Sicko.
Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy
p.s. We almost forgot…our new friend and Angel Sammy’s younger brother, Teddy, turns one today. Paw here and you can hop on over to Two Spoiled Cats and wish him a happy birthday.
That art is quite swell!
And we hope that your ‘sickcretary’ gets over this crud really quickly. Being sick is not fun, and its a drain on the energy needed just to do anything…our petcretary goes through mucho rolls of TP when she has a snooty schnooter, MOL!

We are so sorry that your Mum has been very sick for a long time. We hope she will soon start to feel better.
We absolutely LOVE this very cool Caturday Art!! Feel better soon!
You do look like you have a bandana, CM. TW says you can never be too rich and use too much cinnamon. I feel that way about catnip.
Please feel better soon…

We sure hope your sickretary is back to being your secretary soon! However, we think you are doing a wonderful job of filling in for her.
BTW, I totally agree with her answers on #1 and 2 of the fill ins!
That’s a really nice picture of Cooper Murphy. We like what the sickcretary did. Amazing she did that considering how sick she must be. We are purring she feels better and things get back to normal real soon for all of you.

We sure hope the all better finds your Mom soon. Hey Cooper Murphy, your artsy photo is super!

Oh boy, you guys must really have a good case of the sickos! M says our building is full of sickos too, but so far my peeps and I have escaped it. We hope that remains to be the case. Lots of people running around here with masks on – it’s kinda scary!
I hope you get well soon. I am still coughing, too. I need a new doctor. Have you seen one for your “bug”? Maybe you should! You are in my prayers. HUGS.
Poor Mom (aka Sickretary!)…….it’s TIME for her to get better – she has devoted hours and hours and days and days to the SICK and now it’s time to kick it to the curb! We are excited about today – Teddy’s birthday AND Cat Scouts fun……we just wish everybody was HEALTHY at your house – that would make it purrrfect.
Love and Hugs, Angel Sam and Birthday Boy Ted
We love your artistic portait, Cooper Murphy! We think it sets off your mancatly good looks purrfectly.
And please convey our get well wishes to your sickcretary.
Pee Ess. Strange that she dislikes cilantro (or, as Our Human calls it, coriander). Mummy uses it for practically effurrything.
What a bummer that your human has been sick for so long! My human was sick for a week but was only bedridden for a couple of days. She coughed for a few weeks after she was up and about, but that was it. It has really laid some people low and my human considers herself fortunate she had one of the milder cases.
Cooper Murphy, you not only make one handsome mancat, but also an artistic masterpiece! Your art is seriously too cool for words. And tell the mom that we enjoyed her fill-ins, as always! This human here quite likes cinnamon as well. And our winter was our mildest in a long time. We’re keeping up the purrs and prayers for your mom, Kitties Blue, because we really don’t want to see her thrown in a whole in your back yard!
