Feline Friday and Fill-ins

Feline Friday is hosted by Steve, The Burnt Food Dude, and i'm going to believe it's because he likes cats.
Feline Friday is simple to join. All you have to do is..
1) post a picture, drawing, cartoon or video of a cat (They may be silly or cute)
2) go to Steve's page, linked above, then on the menu bar click on the Feline Friday tab to get the code
3) paste the code under your cat picture
4) add your name and link
That’s all there is to it! Be sure to check back every so often and visit all the Feline Friday bloggers. Also, please leave a nice comment on their blogs. Nasty comments will be deleted!
Di and i drove to San Antonio yesterday, and this is how i feel:

Right now, i'm a bit tired, too!


Friendly Fill-Ins are four fun and easy statements to complete. Ellen of 15andmeowing provides the first two statements and the final two are offered by McGuffy Ann Morris of McGuffy's Reader.  They try to make sure they will be fun to both answer and share. On Friday, the linky will be posted at or about 12:00 AM. Please head to one of their sites, link up, and share your thoughts! 

Here are this week's statements with my responses underlined:

2. In my home, the A/C, the back door, the front door, and the foundation need to be repaired.

3. I thought i lost my mind, but now i know i did!

  1. You know that Cats dominate this puny planet.

  2. Very cute kitty. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, nice answers. That was kind of you to mail the wallet back. I don't think you have lost your mind :) Have a great weekend!

  3. This reminds me of two tired kitties I Saw on Wednesday.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday. 😃

  4. Sounds like a long hard drive. I hope the weather cooperated.

  5. That's how I feel after a long drive too, and I don't walk very well, I hobble from sitting so long. :-(. I tend to agree with you about TV, I've lived without it before and I didn't miss it. I never turn it on when I am home alone during the day. I was going to answer the lost one with "my mind" too! :-) It was very kind of you to return the wallet and I bet she was truly grateful. Those many little acts of kindness you do make a difference! xoxo

  6. Aww! get some sleep heheh i feel exactly the same :-)

    Have a tiredtastic week :-)

  7. adorable kitten. enjoy your getaway!

  8. awww I'd be tired too! Big hugs and happy trails!

  9. I hope you get those repairs done! Prayers!
    What a great thing you did with that wallet. You rock. Have a great getaway!
    Thanks for being a part of Friendly Fill-Ins! Hugs!

  10. I felt exactly like your kitty this morning too! The body just didn't want to move at all. Now if the money I found would have had a wallet attached -- it would have been much easier to return it to it's rightful owner!


Thanks for meandering by and letting me know you were here!
