Resident Cat (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.

The senior living apartments where Ms. S lives has a resident cat.  Sometimes you find her outdoors, and sometimes in.


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. ___________________ creep (s) me out.

2. I could use a refresher class in __________________.

3. Life would be much simpler if _________.

4. I would like to _________, but first I have to _________.

1. Ugh!bugs (roaches)  creep (s) me out.

2. I could use a refresher class in   pretty much everything i learned in school!  CPR, too, i need a refresher in that.

3. Life would be much simpler if   unplanned stuff never happened, but then again, that stuff is life!

4. I would like to   visit a lot of places and see them for myself, both at home and abroad  , but first I have to   earn the money to do it, and retire.

  1. I like your fill-ins. Yuks, I too don't like bugs. This lockdown helps us to save money for our holidays but its the pandemic that is blocking our plans.

  2. Inside or outside that is one comfortable cat.
    I hope you do get to travel. I too could do with refreshers - in lots of things.

  3. I'm with you on the travelling. I liked your fill-ins.

  4. I bet the residents love having the cat in the building!

  5. I see the resident has grabbed her own chair heheh!

    I hate bugs too Mimi I run lol

    Have a bugfreetastic weekend 👍

  6. Refresher course in Math on my Blog today.

    God bless.

  12. That is a nice looking cat.
    I don't like bugs either. We have a big woodpile in the barn and dust keeps coming out of it. The other day some flying bugs were there so I sprayed the wood with cockroach spray. It was like a nightmare. Hundreds, and I mean like 5 or 6 hundred bugs came out of the wood. Thankfully the spray worked and most died. I reckon I will need to spray it again in a couple of weeks to be sure.

  13. Such a cute kitty. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. One thing you don't need a refresher in is writing- you are one of the best writers I know. XO

  14. I've never seen a cat with a single white star on her back. Resident cats here are supposed to live inside, it's the law, but some still can be seen roaming the gardens.

  15. What a beautiful 'resident kitty' ~ great photos ~
    and fill-ins too,

    Living moment by moment,

    aka (A Creative Harbor)

  16. What a cutie!
    I am always amazed at the different answers for the friendly fill-ins each week!

  17. What a gorgeous kitty! I bet she makes the residents at the apartment so happy. And thank you for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins! I'm with you on bugs being more than a tad bit creepy. My worst enemy is the spider, though I try not to kill them. I usually try to get them outside, or to recruit someone else to take them outside for me. I hope you're having a wonderful week!


Thanks for meandering by and letting me know you were here!
