Nail Biting Championship #SundaySelfie

Meows from Mudpie!

We're recycling a preciously seen selfie this week, but it's in honor of a very special day at our house!

It's NASCAR's Championship Sunday and once again our guy Kevin Harvick is one of only 4 drivers eligible to win the big trophy. He's made it to the title race 5 times in the last 6 years: in 2014 he won the championship (before I moved in), in 2015 he finished 2nd, in 2017 and 2018 he ended up 3rd.

Mommy is super excited but so nervous she can hardly stand it. Me, I'll be hiding out until the race is over. Whichever way it goes I have a feeling things will get very, very loud. Send help. And cross all your fingers and paws that the 4 car wins the Cup!

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

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

Mommy's answers:

1. I have been looking forward to peppermint mocha season for quite awhile.

2. Have you started any holiday shopping or decorating yet?

Mudpie's answers:

3. I always get extra clingy this time of year. I love to cuddle when it gets cold so the moment a member of my family sits down I'm on their lap. Mommy jokes that if a burglar came in and sat down I'd probably cuddle with him.

4. The world could use more cat cuddles. To continue with my #3, I've never had a single complaint when I hold a lap hostage! People usually take a nap with me and say I'm the best sedative they've ever had. Cat snuggling makes the world a better place, one person at a time.

Moving Furniture Flashback on Feline Friday

Meows from Mudpie!

Anyone who has followed us through the years knows that we decorate early for Christmas, like around Veterans Day. One of Mommy's favorite decorating memories happened 2 years ago this week...

The tree going up requires moving some furniture. This cabinet is filled with mostly old records that her parents gave her (non-Conway records - his have their own place of honor), and there's nothing much heavier than vinyl! Since Mommy has to do it herself she obviously has to move everything out in order to lift it.

When she finished the heavy lifting and left the door open I couldn't resist and had to hop in! Mommy didn't have the heart to make me move so she used it as a good excuse to take a break :)

I think she should leave it empty for me, don't you? Anyways, guess what we're doing this afternoon? Putting up the Christmas tree! Paws crossed I get to spend some time in the cabinet again this year!

Unboxing November's CatLadyBox

The theme of November's CatLadyBox was Baked to's what was inside!

Featured Cat Lady Artist: "Morning Loaf" by Jamie Shelman, owner of The Dancing Cat and author of How to Land on Your Feet: Life Lessons from My Cat.

Mod Cats Melamine Bowl Set: I plan to stack these in a corner of my kitchen shelf for decoration. I can't imagine dirtying them up with food!

Cat Potholders Set: I've been known to hang decorative potholders. They're just too cute to risk singeing and staining!

Cat Head Jar Gripper: Not only practical but I adore the plum color.

Catnip Pie Cat Toy: It's about time a kitty with a "pie" name got a pie toy!

Furrrench Bread Catnip Kicker Toy: The hang tag on this toy just killed me, featuring a black cat wearing a French beret. It shows the attention to detail on all CatLadyBox products.

November Retro Country Rewind #MewsicMovesMe

Earlier this year we premiered our new mewsic feature "Retro Country Rewind," a look back at favorite songs that hit #1 during that month from 30, 35, 40 plus years ago. We were so happy that you guys seemed to enjoy it! Now let's take a look at November for this freebie week in the Mewsic Moves Me blog hop...

This song was Conway's 3rd (of 55) #1 record on the country charts. His next #1 would be Hello Darlin' in June 1970...the song that catapulted him to superstardom.

45 Years Ago - 1974, Back Home Again, John Denver

40 Years Ago - 1979, You Decorated My Life, Kenny Rogers

Snow Globe #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!

Mommy's answers:

1. Whenever I shop in crowded stores, I get extremely anxious. I start to feel like everyone is closing in on me. It's almost like the people make me feel claustrophobic, not the space.

2. Therefore, the upcoming Christmas shopping season is not going to be fun.

Mudpie's answers:

3. Good things come to those who are ridiculously adorable. Which pretty much guarantees that I get anything I ask for.

4. Closed doors and windows make me grumpy. The season of lounging in open, sunny doors and windows is officially over and I'm not happy about it. Although cuddle season is here, so there's that...
