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.
This is Ms. G's cat Baby, also known as Widdle (say the word "little" with a lisp) or, if she's misbehaving, Wart. She's the youngest of Ms. G's cats, at age 12.
|Where are my rugs!|
She has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. As long as she keeps glaring at me when i pick up her rugs for vacuuming, she's still feeling pretty good, and i'll take the glares in stride.
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 If I were one of the 7 dwarves, I would be __________________________.
2. I think television is _____________________.
3. _________ is a rule that I regularly break.
4. I can’t believe _________ isn’t more popular.
1 If I were one of the 7 dwarves, I would be Sleepy.
2. I think television is expensive.
3. Don't get too attached to cats and kittens at the shelter is a rule that I regularly break. Since i know i can't adopt any more at this time, though, it's okay. If i ever am looking for another cat to adopt, watch out, i will probably want them all.
4. I can’t believe bitter dark chocolate isn’t more popular.
