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.
Somebody was hiding and would only peek out.
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!

1. I would like to see what books are on anyone's bookshelf. (Thanks, Melissa!) (The books you read tell a lot about you.)

3. There is no amount of money you could pay me to purposely eat bugs, and the uggier the bugs, the more i would resist.
4. When I failed to learn guitar well because my hands are so small, I decided to take up ukulele instead.
