Feline Friday was originally started by Steve, The Burnt Food Dude (who no longer blogs), and i'm going to believe it's because he likes cats.
He handed hosting duties off to Sandee at Comedy Plus, and now she's entrusting it to me. Wish me luck!
Feline Friday is simple to join. All you have to do is: Post a picture, drawing, cartoon or video of a cat (they may be silly or cute). Then add your link!
One thing for sure is this is a fun and easy meme to do. So come and join us in Feline Friday.
What better way to start the weekend than with a feline!
Granddaughter who lives with Ms. GA and Mr. BA let her cat, Ruth(less), into the office where she is most assuredly not allowed to be. Of course, Granddaughter then rushed off to work, leaving me the task of rousting or luring Ms. Ruth(less) from the room.
First, show her the treats.
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 always forget to _________.
2. I never forget to _________.
3. Nothing makes me _________ more than _________.
4. It might sound outrageous, but I _________.
1. I always forget to grab my special cushion and bring it to the car with me, then bring it back in. Since i only have the one and i have a difficult time sitting comfortably without it, i have to bring it with me and more often than not have to come back to take it out to the car, or go back to the car to bring it in.
2. I never forget to pray.
3. Nothing makes me count my blessings more than reading the newspaper headlines.
4. It might sound outrageous, but I try not to do anything too outrageous. Happy, funny, silly, joyful, joking, playful, enjoyable, yes, outrageous, no.
