Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #154

As we do each Friday, Kitties Blue and I are joining the Friendly Fill-Ins blog hop. The hop is hosted by Ellen from 15 And Meowing and Lorianne from Four-Legged Furballs. Each Thursday, they post four sentences with blanks to be filled in by those of us who participate. On Friday, we post the completed sentences on our blogs. This week Misty May helped me. We both used teal italics for our completions.

To join in, click on that badge on the left. You’ll be transported to Four-Legged Furballs.

1. I got my first cell phone in the mid-90s. The Kitties dad got it for me. It was big and clunky. I didn’t want it and rarely used it.

2. I wish the word “boo,” as used to refer to one’s significant other or any random person could be removed from the English language.

3. I’ll never outgrow my enjoyment of coloring. Here is a kitty picture from the Happy Color app, which I “colored” on my iPad.

4. Misty May: Being deaf make(s) me feel old.

Feline Friday

For the Feline Friday blog hop at Comedy Plus, I decided to share a flashback photo from 15 years ago (April 6, 2004). Some of you might be thinking that is Fiona in the foreground, but it is actually our original grey cat, Louise, with Madison giving her a bath. If you don’t know these cats, who passed before the debut of The Cat on My Head, you can read about them on The Felines page.

Misty May, both Binga and Boodie can’t hear so well… and they don’t care! Maybe you should follow their lead.

Yeah, one of Mom’s friends was talking about going to lunch with her boo. And Mom wondered what in the heck she was talking about. We admit Mom is rather dense but really ghost say boo and kids get boo-boos we do not think boo is a good nickname for a significant other.

Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I have not heard the term boo, but I don’t like it now that I have. Great job coloring. Very cute flashback photo. Have a nice weekend! XO

Misty May, we’re sorry you can’t hear so well. But it doesn’t make you old. It’s always nice to see the kitties that came before.

It’s always nice (and a bit sad) to see The Kitties Who Came Before.

Such a sweet photo! We didn’t know Misty May was deaf but we certainly don’t think it makes her old!

My hubby is going deaf and has been considering hearing aids lately. Both my in-laws had hearing aids and there are pros and cons to them, but you probably already know that. I love the photo of your cuddling kitties.

Aww, such a cute photo of your Angel babies! Misty May, I was diagnosed with some hearing loss AND tinnitus, and I say, “What?” more times than ever, but thankfully I can still hear the birdies singing, and when Chili Bruce starts purring.

Great Fill-ins! Misty May, losing hearing isn’t all that bad. Our woofie Katie did and it actually made her life better because she didn’t hear the scary stuff.

I love your answers. I never had one of those bulky phones, but I remember them. When I was working we were all so connected with pagers, cell phones, voice mail and so many other things. It was a life saver though.

Misty May, don’t feel old. There are worse things than not being able to hear.

Awww on the sweet flashback.

Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. My best to your peeps. ♥

What a sweet photo that is! Love your coloring cat. I keep saying I’m going to get out my iPad and give it a try but never seem to make time for it. It will come in time! I never realized that Misty May is deaf. Animals seem to adapt so well. Have a beautiful weekend!

I love the colored kitty pic. I remember when I met my wife in ’99 I had a cell phone and she didn’t. She told me she had no use for a cell phone and promptly ran up my minutes and caused me to have to pay a huge phone bill. I had to get a landline to save minutes after that.

The flashback photo is so sweet and the “painted” art is gorgeous! I’m sorry that Misty May has lost her hearing but we kitties cope with an amazing array of disabilities much better than humans do! Misty May you will always be younger than springtime!

Hugs, Teddy
