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 Buddy. He belongs to Ms. G, my Wednesday lady, and he's 15+ years old. He has a bad heart, so he's spoiled rotten with baby food and treats just to keep a little weight on him.
When i started working there, he wouldn't come out from under the bed while i was around, and now he will sometimes accept a bit of petting from me, if i'm careful. He always lets me give him treats, though!
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. If you see me _________ it means _________.

3. I wish I could go back and relive the moment when _________.
