Today Kitties Blue are wishing all our woofie friends happy National Dog Day™. We selected Calista Jo to represent us.




Friendly Fill-Ins: Week 16

Once again we are entering this blog hop hosted by Ellen from 15 And Meowing and Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. You can enter a link to your fill-in post on Annie’s blog. As usual our fill-ins are in teal italics. We kitties let the petretary complete the fill-ins this week.

1. I wish insurance companies would bring back $100 deductibles! I had what is commonly referred to as a fender bender a couple of days ago to the tune of $3500. I now have a $500 deductible to pay. I may be dipping into the kitties treat fund (please don’t tell) to pay it.

2. An act of kindness that I do often is donate to animal charities and rescues and individual animals in need. I also continue to sponsor the kitties’ honorary sisfur, Swizzle, at PAWS.

3.  I still have a tiny gold locket from my childhood.

4.​ If I didn’t have my supportive and loving husband, I’d be completely lost.

Stella and Kenzie thank you for your Dog Day post. They insist it is every day, though!

Thank you for being a part of Friendly Fill-Ins. We love you guys. With Summer coming to a close, I plan to get back to my usual routine. I will be going back to Mayo Clinic this Fall, so hope to get some resolution for my health issues, too. I appreciate your patience and understanding very much. Hugs.

Great answers. We agree about the insurance stuff. Mom Paula couldn’t even afford to have her car fixed a few years ago when someone hit her because of the deductible and their low estimate of what it would cost to fix it.

Beautiful photo CJ- Happy National Dog Day! Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, you always have great answers. Sorry you had a fender bender, I hope you didn’t get hurt. That is a big deductible. I love that you sponsor sweet Swizzle, I feel bad that she hasn’t gotten a forever home. Hope you have a nice weekend! XO

Happy Dog Day to all our dog furiends! We’re sorry about the “fender bender.” There doesn’t seem to be anything cheap about car repairs these days.

Also, I had no idea it was National Dog Day! Thank you for sharing this. But, pup Astrid is going to be furious with me…

What wonderful fill-ins! Well, except for #1 – I’m sorry to hear about that. Fender benders are a real pain in the neck, aren’t they? I got rear-ended recently, by someone not insured, and so getting the damage paid for by the guilty party is turning into a real pain. But, on a happier note, we do love the rest of your fill-ins! We hope you all have a beautiful Friday!

Lovely photo! And we know what your human means about deductibles. You pay at one end or the other, don’t you?

In past blog posts, reading about your adventures transporting rescue kitties to other places inspired me to do that for our local shelter. It felt good at the end of the day!

You DO make a difference… 🙂

Calista Jo did you all proud … what a beautiful picture!
I think my insurance company offers lower deductibles – they are just very expensive so it doesn’t make sense. I hope you are okay!
