Feline Friday Update on Marmalade, 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.

Here's an updated photo of Marmalade, who is healed up, preadopted, and will be going to his new forever home very soon.


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. I never have time to finish __________________________.

2. My _____________can _____________.

3. _________ is a cause that is dear to my heart.

4.  At this very moment, I _________.

1. I never have time to finish   cleaning out my cleaning supplies — i am too busy using them! 

2. My   cats    can   get away with anything as far as Sweetie is concerned, i am stricter with them. 

3. Animal welfare  is a cause that is dear to my heart.

4.  At this very moment, i   am waiting for the lady to get to her office so i can get in and clean it.  


It's time to wish Bigger Girl many happy returns of her birthday!

  3. Marmalade is a handsome boy and I am glad his forever home is waiting for him.
    Happy birthday to Bigger Girl!
    In regard to your comment last week, Flynn didn't do any April Fool photos. In our early blogging years though, one April Fool's Day a big group of us swapped blogs for the day. Those not in the know had to hunt around to find who was where. Perfectly Parker posted on our blog and I think we posted on Pearl, Bert and Jake's blog. Neither are around any more.

  4. Oh Marmalade so glad you are healing and may your forever home be just what you need ~ Xo

    Happy Birthday to Bigger Girl and great fill ins
