Indoor Outdoor 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.

Tripod SissyCat waits to be taken indoors.


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 love that _________.

2. To celebrate Pi Day on Monday, I will have a slice of _________ pie.

3. I'd like to be able to _________ every day.

4. If I ended up in jail, it would probably be because _________.

1. I love that   G-d first loved us.

2. To celebrate Pi Day on Monday, I will have a slice of   vegan chocolate  pie,   if i can find some.

3. I'd like to be able to   take a short siesta  every day.

4. If I ended up in jail, it would probably be because   freedom of worship was repealed.
