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 preferred method of procrastination is surfing the web or watching TV.

2. I always procrastinate when I am supposed to make a phone call. I dread making phone calls and put them off for as long as possible.

3. My goal of decluttering paperwork is going really well. I now get all of my bank statements and the majority of my bills online, but I have years and years worth of bank statements, pay stubs, and medical records that I haven't known what to do with. It's not safe to just recycle them, and even if I bought a shredder it would take ages to do it all myself. I found out a local shredding company holds free shredding events throughout the state, and in September they'll be close by. I put it on my calendar, and one of my summer projects is to go through as much old paperwork as possible. I already have a full box!

4. If I opened a cat cafe/book shop, I would name it Mochas, Mysteries and Meows!

Feline Friday: Judgmental Mudpie


 Mommy. 

Boxes - especially CatLadyBoxes - are for kitties. 

Not paperwork. 

Capeesh?

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).

From the Outside Looking In #SundaySelfie

Meows from Mudpie!

It's pretty obvious I live by the back door in the summer (Mommy calls the back hall my summer apartment). Yesterday she helped me snap this selfie while she was outside looking in at me. 

I don't think we ever told you - when grandpa fell a few weeks ago, it was right before his home health nurse was due to visit. Mommy met her at the door and explained what had happened, and the nurse rushed in to help get him off the floor. It was a good 5 minutes later before Mommy realized she hadn't made sure the back door was latched. Sure enough - the nurse had come in so fast the door didn't shut behind her, but I was just lying in the hall looking out the way I always do when Mommy holds it open for me. 

She kept telling me over and over what a purrfect little angel I am because I didn't take the opportunity to go on a walkabout. I would never do that. I know how much Mommy needs me.

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 caregiving ability, especially with animals, is a quality of mine that I am proud of.

2. Lack of patience is a quality of mine I would like to change. I always say when God handed out patience I didn't have the patience to stand in line for it!

3. Though I find ball sports boring, racing sports (auto, horse) really interest me.

4. Believe it or not, I deal with decluttering on a regular basis. I've made quite a bit of progress lately, but there's still so much to do.

Unboxing May's CatLadyBox

The theme of May's CatLadyBox was Cat Mom Life...here's what was inside!


Featured Cat Lady Artist:
Jamie Shelman, The Dancing Cat

Cat Mom Shirt:
Cat mom, always and forever! Love the mint green color.


Cats Sign:
I have wooden black cat silhouettes in various poses over many doorways in my house so this is a wonderful addition to my collection. I have it perched over my kitchen door.

Cat Craze Dish Towel:
This is hanging in the bathroom as a decorative towel for now :) 


I Love My Cat Magnet:
This magnet is outdoor safe to use on the car, but it's on my fridge with loads of other cat magnets.

Happy Hedgie & Meowy Side Up Catnip Toys:
Both of these toys are SO adorable. We posted pictures of Mudpie checking them out on Wednesday. Lots of bloopers to come too!

Scratch-In-The-Box:
Cats love hanging out in their CatLadyBox (Mudpie sure does!) and this scratch pad fits inside purrfectly. Brilliant idea!
