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 month is Tocktober, as Ms. Ellen of 15AndMeowing has reminded me. Here are Link and Dansig, showing off their tocks and showing their friendship, too.
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. I wish I could train _________________ to ____________________.
2. I am planning to get ________________ for ___________________.
3. I know it’s time to _________ when _________.
4. I felt brave when I _________.
1. I wish I could train Link to drink out of one of those cat water fountains instead of the bathtub faucet (he hates those electric fountains because the running water doesn't make any noise, he wants to hear it drip, the little nerd).
2. I am planning to get a new carrier for my cleaning products, the old one is almost worn beyond use.
3. I know it’s time to feed the cats their daily canned treat when my alarm on my phone goes off, because if i'm late, they will let me know.
4. I felt brave when I left to go meet my friend Charis and travel with her to our first S-Fest (a gathering many of our online friends used to have before the pandemic) because i'd never met any of them in person yet.
