Her Way (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.

mimi:  Hey, anykitty want to pose for Feline Friday?

 Tripod SissyCat:  Sure, I will.

Tripod SissyCat:  But you have to come around here to get a picture, I don't want to move.

Tripod SissyCat:  Much better!


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. Nothing is better than _________.

2. I _________ my _________ in _________.

3. _________ makes me feel energized.

4. I would advise others to _________.

1. Nothing is better than   to someday hear those words, "Well done, good and faithful servant."

2. I   drink  my    coffee  in   my favorite coffee cup my friend gave me back in high school.

3. Getting things finished  makes me feel energized.

4. I would advise others to   never stop learning.

  3. A contented cat sat on a mat.

    God bless.

  5. Those were good answers. It's nice to see you SissyCat!

  6. Good captures of a Lazy Sissy Cat:-)I posted some Feline Friday funnies this morning just to give it try.

  7. Aw, kitties will post but don't make them move. Adorable.

    Love your fill-ins. They are purrfect.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. Big hug. ♥

  8. SissyCat is a cutie. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers, especially #1. I am amazed you have not broken your cup, I am such a klutz, it would not have lasted a year. Have a nice weekend. XO

  9. Love seeing Tripod Sissycat! She sure is boss

  10. Outstanding set of fill-ins today. Continuing education in whatever interests us can be very rewarding indeed. Have a blessed week.

  11. I feel the same way about getting things done. When chores pile up it drives me crazy, I think that's why I'm so hyper organized.

  12. I am terrifically impressed that you can own a daily-use mug for that long and not have broken it somewhere along the way.
    (But I might be projecting...)

  13. 1. Nothing is better than chocolate
    2. I saw my name in the newspaper
    3. Sun and sea makes me energised
    4. I would advise others to think it through very carefully.
    Sissycat is looking warm and relaxed.

  14. Awwww Tripod kitty is the best....hugs and big pets to her!

  15. SissyCat is so cute! And thank you for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins! Your #2 reminded of how the other day I was drinking out of a mug one of my own friends got me back in high school, and when I picked it up the handle snapped right off. Luckily the rest of the mug is fine, and I still use it, just without the handle. Have a wonderful week!

  16. Ohmyword. I never got past the first one because that is EXACTLY what I want to hear! And then the tears started...

  17. Adorable kitty ~ sweet photos ~ great fill ins ~
