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.
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!
More babies at the shelter. They stay in the intake room for a bit, then get moved to a cage up front when they're cleared (meaning the staff are pretty sure they don't have anything catching to spread around).
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. _________ down, _________ to go.
2. It's all fun and games until _________.
3. By some miracle, I _________.
4. Unless _________, I rarely _________.
1. Three months down, nine to go in this year.
2. It's all fun and games until you hear how much the Janitor will charge to clean it up.
3. By some miracle, I survived pregnancies 3, 4, and 5. My doctor refused to take a chance that there would be a 6, and he was right.
4. Unless something unusual has happened, I rarely don't have a book handy. Yes, there's a book in one of the pockets of my janitor's apron, why wouldn't there be?
