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.
A few weeks ago, i featured The Baby (a/k/a Widdle or Wart) from Ms. G's house claiming her rug even when it was folded up on top of the couch while i was cleaning.

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. You don’t have to convince me to ___________________________.
2. _____________is causing me stress.
3. Speaking from experience, _________.
4. Over time, my opinion of _________ has changed.
1. You don’t have to convince me to work when i’m at work, and relax when it’s time to relax.
2. My blood pressure is causing me stress. It doesn't want to stay under control right now.
3. Speaking from experience, it is much easier to keep up than to catch up.
4. Over time, my opinion of ebooks has changed. Mostly, i want hard copies of books, but having an e-reader is so convenient for travel, i would want one for that reason only.
