Shy Girl (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.

This is Ms. G's shyest cat, the rarely seen snowshoe Angel.  



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. This summer, I plan to ___________________.

2. My favorite food at a bbq is _________________.

3. You’ll find me _________ at a party.

4. _________ is the silliest thing I’ve ever argued about.

1. This summer, I plan to   work.  Vacation is over already.

2. My favorite food at a bbq is   any quality veggieburger.

3. You’ll find me   talking quietly to one or two people  at a party.

4. Anything i've ever argued about  is the silliest thing I’ve ever argued about.   Think about it, it's silly to argue about anything because arguing doesn't change anyone's mind!


Today is:

Action Mesothelioma Day -- UK (bringing "meso" cancer into the spotlight)

Distressed Elves' Creditors' Day -- Fairy Calendar

Flag & Anthem Day -- Curacao

Freedom From Fear of Public Speaking Day -- as proposed by Beverly Beuermann-King, because you don't want to blow it when your big opportunity comes because you are afraid to speak out!

  1. Angel looks happy. Smiling even.

    God bless.

  2. My favourite barbecue food is prawns fresh from the ocean, sadly I never get them anymore, since the fisherman took a different job.

  3. At least Angel is willing to pose for your camera. Any barbecue food that is not burnt or tough, I won't mind eating them. Prefer seafood to meat.

  4. Nice answers. I'll give it a try as well:
    1. This summer, I plan to go more to the beach.
    2. My favorite food at a bbq is medium-rare spicy meat NOT sausages.
    3. You’ll find me telling something at a party.
    4. Imaginary monsters is the silliest thing I’ve ever argued about.

  5. Angel is sweet. She should be brave and show herself more.
    I have never been much of a party person. If I have had to go I usually find a quiet spot talking to a friend or two.

  6. Aww! what a shy cutie heheh!

    I agree arguing mostly gets you nowhere in the end

    Have an arguelesstastic weekend 👍

  7. No point in arguing with you then Mimi!

  8. Great seeing Angel and very nice fill ins. Happy 4th friends

  9. Some kitties are shy. That's a pretty girl kitty.

    Love your fill-ins and especially #4. Arguing is indeed silly. We don't argue around here. It's not worth the effort.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

  10. Those were really good answers. Howdy sweet Angel!

  11. Angel is a cutie. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers, especially #4. Have a nice weekend. XO

  12. You are so right about arguing. A waste of time and energy.

  13. angel ewe bee gorgeouz; ewe shuld show yur self mor often....we hope ewe N everee onez 4th oh joo lie iz safe N happee :) ♥☺☺♥♥

  14. You're right, arguing doesn't change anyone's mind. It just causes bad feelings on both sides.

  15. I love your answer #4 on the fill in's. Arguing gets us nowhere. I think that is my favorite answer ever. Angel is very sweet and everything here gives me such a good feeling, that I know I learn something new every single time. HUGS to you
