Kittens Move Fast (Feline Friday) and Friendly Fill-Ins


Feline Friday was started by Steve, The Burnt Food Dude, and i'm going to believe it's because he likes cats.
He has handed hosting duties off to Sandee, of Comedy Plus, and it's simple to join, just follow the link to Sandee's page for the rules and the code.

More shelter kittens, a blooper reel because it’s hard to take pictures while keeping them in their cages:


Friendly Fill-Ins are easy to do. There are four statements: the first two statements are provided by Ellen of 15AndMeowing, and the final two are offered by Lorianne The Menagerie Mom of Four-Legged Furballs. They try to make sure the statements will be fun to both answer and share. The linky will be posted at or about 12:00 AM on Friday. Please head over to one of their sites, link up, and share your thoughts!      

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

1. June is a good month to _____________________.

2. I love to play _____________________.

3. I’m not ashamed to admit _________.

4. I’d rather not _________.

1. June is a good month to   go on vacation.

2. I love to play   the radio.  Musical and sports talents were left out of my end of the gene pool, and i wanted to say “hookey from work” but it’s not true, that would be said just for laughs.

3. I’m not ashamed to admit   “I am not ashamed of the Gospel, for it is the power of G-d unto salvation to every one that believeth.” (Romans 1:16)

4. I’d rather not   ever get on a plane again, i have gotten more and more afraid of flying, and i’m not sure why.

  1. Love the kittens.
    I am not a fan of plane travel either. I am also prone to motion sickness which doesn't help.

  2. Aww! those cute kittens the photos were fine gives that real look :-)

    I am not keen on flying it makes my arms tird heheh!

    Have a safetastic weekend 😷😷😷

  3. Kittens are so cute. For June, we have decided not to go on holidays. I don't like to fly.

  4. Aw on the kittens. They are hard to photograph indeed.

    Love your fill-ins too. Hubby and I are not planing on getting on another airplane either. We've flown many places, but we're done.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend, my friend. Big hug. ♥

  5. I don't mind flying, but used to love the short flight from Plymouth to London on the twin prop Dash 8 planes. They would be in the air before they had hardly started taxiing and the low altitude meant you could see everything. Sadly I can no longer fly but they are happy memories.

  6. I'm living the kitten life myself. We're down to two kittens to find homes for and they're a handful when they get the zoomies.

    I'm a chicken when it comes to flying. I prefer to stay on the ground.

  7. Sweet kitty photos ~ hope they find a forever home soon ~ ^_^

    Be Safe. Be Well,

  8. Those kitties are so darn cute. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, I always enjoy your answers. I understand about flying, right now I would fear catching corona more than a crash. Have a nice weekend. XO

  9. Hope these kitties find loving forever homes soon, they are adorable.
    I don't like flying either, being in the air makes me feel anxious.
    Have a fabulous weekend!

  10. Gotta love that wee kitten energy! Great answers and our Dad says yes to saying no to plane rides!

  11. Although I certainly wouldn't fly right now, I can't wait till I feel like it's safe, I miss my family and I need a vacation.

  12. I have so many photos just like your cat action shots! I love flying, no matter how short or long the flight. I'm anxiously awaiting the day I can fly to Brasil to see my new grandchild.

  13. Awwdorable sweeties and great answers to the fill-ins. 😸Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend🐾😽💞

  14. These kittens and their bloopers are precious! And thank you for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins! I have never been on a plane, and I honestly never want to be on one. Have a wonderful week!
