Cat Pawsitive Pro Mid-Point Articles

Meows from Mudpie!

Mommy and I wanted to give you a little more info on the articles she's been writing for Jackson Galaxy's Cat Pawsitive Pro program

She was actually supposed to start working with them last spring but of course it was cancelled along with everything else in the world, so she was super excited to get the email stating that it would be starting up again this year. She was partnered with two shelters participating in the program, Roice-Hurst Humane Society in Grand Junction, Colorado, and Heaven On Earth Society for Animals in North Hollywood, California, and is enjoying her time working with them so much.

All of the mid-point articles for this semester can be read here, and the links to Mommy's articles can be found below. We hope you enjoy meeting the amazing kitties that are benefiting from Cat Pawsitive Pro!

    Too Pooped To Pose Pretty #SundaySelfie

    Meows from Mudpie!

    I may have partied too hard on Tortoiseshell Cat Appreciation Day yesterday...I can't even lift my head for a selfie!

    We're joining our friends at The Cat On My Head for the Sunday Selfies blog hop!

    Tortoiseshell Cat Appreciation Day #CaturdayArt

    Visit more artsy kitties at Athena's Caturday Art blog hop!

    And now our weekly answers for the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge, hosted by 15andmeowing and Four-Legged Furballs...

    1. I wish I knew how to play the steel guitar, classic country's most beautiful instrument.

    2. If offered a free trip to space, I would not accept it. Earth is crazy enough for me right now.

    3. Having the opportunity to write for Jackson Galaxy's Cat Pawsitive Pro program is the most exciting thing in my life right now. It's an incredible honor, and I've neglected to mention it here on the blog!

    4. I could give a long lecture on the topic of keeping cats inside. The other night I looked out the window to see the cat across the street laying in the road. (He was fine, just looking around.) His human came to the door and called him, but when he didn't come she shut the door and went back in the house, leaving him there! I nearly blew a gasket.

    Making a List, Checking It Twice...Mother's Day Gift Ideas for Cat Moms from Etsy

    Meows from Mudpie!

    We're just a few short weeks away from one of the most important days of the year...Mother's Day! Mommy spends lots of time browsing Etsy, and I think she might be trying to drop a few hints because the last time I logged into our account I noticed she's been using their lists feature to help keep track of the things that catch her eye.

    She's a savvy cat lady, and I think she's selected things that any cat-loving mom would be thrilled to receive on her special day. To make your shopping a little easier we've broken our lists down into categories that fit the theme of our blog: general cat mom gifts, cat/coffee/book related gifts, and of course a special tortie section! (I requested that one.)

    Which is your favorite? I think everything here would be a hit with Mommy, but she's really nuts about the tortie Kit-Cat Clock and Tortoiseshell Coffee Co. sign. I'll need to figure out how many squeezies I'll have to go without in order to pay for them.

    Don't forget, if you find something here you like and make a purchase using our affiliate links, I get a little money for my piggy bank! I might even spend it on Mommy's gift instead of my squeezie money!

    MP Purrs for TW & CK

    Meows from Mudpie!

    Back when I arrived at my forever home, TW (The Woman) and CK (Cathy Keisha) of the Stunning Keisha blog nicknamed me MP. We thought it was super cute and every now and then Mommy even types that instead of my full name.

    In spite of being as different as night and day in everything from music to politics, Mommy and TW became fast friends in the vast pet blogosphere, as did ghetto kitteh CK & this angelic little tortie.

    Many of you may have heard the news that TW is currently battling cancer. Learning this left us shocked and devastated, but we're so happy to hear that her treatments appear to be working and we're purring and praying like crazy that they continue to for a long time to come!

    CK, if you need any pointers on how to be a total lovebug like me, just let me know! It can be our little secret. It sure would make TW happy too.

    Rainy Night In Mudpieville #MewsicMovesMe

    The theme of this week's Mewsic Moves Me blog hop is, "They say April showers bring May flowers, so make it rain people! Be creative about where your source of moisture comes from."

    The first song on our playlist has to be Conway's duet with Sam Moore on Brook Benton's Rainy Night in Georgia. It's a song about rain, but it also causes moisture of a different sort in the form of tears. It was recorded, and its accompanying video shot, on May 3, 1993, while ironically it was pouring rain outside. No one could have guessed that it would end up being Conway's last time in the studio. He passed away on June 5th.

    Get those umbrellas up!

    Hope you enjoyed our choices this week and managed to stay dry!

    Let us know if you have a favorite!

    My Ear Is Fine #SundaySelfies

    Meows from Mudpie!

    Yesterday morning Mommy helped me snap my selfies while I was lounging in the bathroom window, and she didn't even notice that the sun shining behind me made it look like my ear was on fire!

    I'm fine...I promise!

    We're joining our friends at The Cat On My Head for the Sunday Selfies blog hop!
