More Flooding #CaturdayArt

Meows from Mudpie!

On Wednesday, the one year anniversary of catastrophic flooding in our little state of Vermont, the remnants of Hurricane Beryl blew through and devastated many of the same areas that are still recovering from last year. At our house we got 2.5" of rain, but other areas not that far away got between 4-7" so we consider ourselves very lucky.

And now our weekly answers (all answered by Mommy this week) for the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge, hosted by 15andmeowing and Four-Legged Furballs!

1. It would be nice to be cold for a day. I am SO sick of the heat and humidity and it's only mid-July.

2. The older I get, the more I appreciate boredom. People say their life is boring when nothing exciting is going on. I've found that not all excitement is good excitement and I would much rather be bored with nothing going on. 

3. I like to decorate my house with cat decor, Halloween and Christmas decorations.

4. You'll often find peanut butter on my kitchen counter. I use it so often I don't even bother putting it away.

Feline Friday Flashback: The Great Big Disappointing Box

Meows from Mudpie!

Six years ago this pawsome, gigantic box arrived at our door. 

I was so excited to check it out, imaging all the amazing, fun things that might be inside. Needless to say, I was very disappointed to find out the boxes contents weren't for me.

Inside the big box was yet another box, a wooden record storage box. I hopped in to check it out but before long it was filled with Conway records. It still sits in our bedroom today. 

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).

Tara & Truffles...Forever Loved, Forever Missed


Today marks the 9th anniversary of the day my baby girl Truffles flew off to the bridge, and the 11th anniversary of the day her big sister Tara paved the way before her.

It goes without saying this is the hardest day of the year for me. Comprehending the tragic set of circumstances that took Truffles from me far before her time is something I will always struggle with, and most likely something I will never be able to accept. She deserved so much more from life. And the fact that I lost them both on the same day two years apart makes me wish I could scratch this date right off the calendar.

In honor of my precious girls, please give your own fur babies a little something special today. Maybe an extra hug or kiss, a few more minutes of play or cuddle time, extra treats wouldn't hurt either.

Our time together is so fleeting; their fragile lives all too short. Never miss an opportunity to show them how much they're loved.

Glamorous #CaturdayArt

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

And now our weekly answers (all answered by Mommy this week) for the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge, hosted by 15andmeowing and Four-Legged Furballs!

1. My favorite beverage to drink when it is hot out is iced coffee.

2. My favorite summer activity is shopping early for new Halloween decor and Christmas in July.

3. I'm grateful that I have the freedom to be at stay-at-home cat mom while I take care of dad full time.

4. If I don't write something down, I'll forget to do it. There's too much going on in my head lately to remember things on my own.

Tiki Kitty & Popoki Parrot Catnip Toys:
The little parrot is super soft and fuzzy, and tiki kitty is so precious I just might confiscate him for my stuffed cat collection.
