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.
Ms. GA told me there was a new cat hanging around, a black and white male. He was rather shy, she said, not wanting to be petted, but not running away, either.
She wanted to get a picture of him to put on Nextdoor, find out if anyone is taking care of him and offer to share the cost of neutering him.
While she was gone, i got pictures, all right, and he has a collar, so someone is claiming him. Whether the person will agree to the neutering plan remains to be seen.
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. A memory I have of _____________________ is __________________________.
2. I always complain about __________________.
3. I have a lot in common with _________.
4. Right now I’m _________, but I’d rather be _________.
1. A memory I have of childhood is reading all of the time.
2. I always complain about traffic, but i am trying to learn not to because it does not help and makes me crankier about it.
3. I have a lot in common with other pet lovers, we all work hard to give our pets a better life!
4. Right now I’m working, but I’d rather be retired.
