Playing Footsie Through the Door

Meows from Mudpie!

Today we have some video for your viewing pleasure! Mommy and I play footsie through the side door quite often, and the other day when she returned from cat-sitting she was able to shoot some footage of the game. She ended up capturing a first - I've never tried to bite her through the door before!

June Retro Country Rewind #MewsicMovesMe

This spring 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 June for this freebie week in the Mewsic Moves Me blog hop...

30 Years Ago - 1989, A Better Man, Clint Black

1989 was a banner year for newcomers in country music, producing the likes of Garth Brooks and Alan Jackson. Clint Black was my favorite of the group, and the first country artist to see his debut single hit #1 on the charts since 1975.

35 Years Ago - 1984, I Can Tell By the Way You Dance, Vern Gosdin

I've always been nuts about this song, and wish Conway had been the one to record it.
It is, as he always said, the perfect "Conway Twitty song."

40 Years Ago - 1979, She Believes In Me, Kenny Rogers

45 Years Ago - 1974, I Don't See Me In Your Eyes Anymore, Charlie Rich

Miss Conway? Me too. But he'll be back next month with a pair of #1 records for the month of July!

Let us know if you have a favorite this month!

Pleading #SundaySelfie

Meows from Mudpie!

Would you be able to resist this pleading look if I aimed it in your direction?

Mommy helped me snap this selfie the other day when she returned home from cat-sitting our neighbor kitty. It's one more thing added to her already overflowing plate. I was begging her to come inside and have some "us" time.

We feel like we're totally neglecting our duties in the cat blogosphere lately. (You may have noticed we've cut down our schedule to posting on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and the weekends.) Mommy is so overwhelmed by life right now - her work has been insane for months, and now my grandpa has some new health issues that have had to be dealt with. It feels like she and I never have enough quality time to spend together anymore.

If you think this selfie is cute, wait until you see video of the game of footsie we play through the door, which Mommy got at the same time as this photo. That is...if she finds time to upload it!

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

Caturday Art

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. I hope brick and mortar bookstores never go out of business.

2. So far, the highlight of my year has been winning 4 Certificates of Excellence from the Cat Writers Association.

Mudpie's answers:

3. Mommy's work and other obligations take up too much time. More on that tomorrow...

4. If I didn't have to sleep, I would spend that extra time entertaining Mommy. But I think she's entertained watching me nap. I'm pretty adorable regardless of what I'm doing.

Unboxing June's CatLadyBox

The theme of June's CatLadyBox was "Tropurrcal Vibes"'s what was inside!

Featured Cat Lady Artist: Alexandra Brodt

Cat Cocktails Tank Top: I think the CatLadyBox shirts get cuter each month, if possible. These cartoon kitties are over-the-top adorable. These are my kind of adult beverages!

Cat-Shaped Beach Towel: I'm not a beach girl so this will be used as an extra blanket on the bed come fall. The fact that it's cat-shaped is just pure purrfection.

Cat Travel Bottles: I'm going to use these to hold lotions in the bathroom since I'm not a big traveler either. Love the colors!

Fabulous Flamingo & Timmy the Toucan Catnip Toys: Mudpie is close to having her own zoo thanks to the CatLadyBox animal catnip toys! She loves the extra nip in the toucan, and can't get enough of the flamingo's pretty pink feathers.

Happy Birthday Darlin' Dolly #MewsicMovesMe

The honorary co-host of this month's Mewsic Moves Me blog hop is Marie, otherwise known as XmasDolly. In honor of her birthday, this week's prompt is a birthday song to her, followed by a song that starts with the first letter of your first name...

To this girl, there's only one birthday song. Conway's Happy Birthday Darlin' was #1 for 3 weeks back in 1979. I love it because not only does he sing the chorus, but he also speaks the verses in that dreamy voice of his. He could read the phone book to me and I would be in heaven...

Both Melissa and Mudpie begin with the same letter, so our choice for a song that begins with the letter "M" is My Elusive Dreams by Tammy Wynette and David Houston. It was Tammy's very first #1 record back in 1967. Songs like this make me ache to travel back in time to when country music tugged at the heartstrings like this...

Happy Birthday, Darlin' Dolly!

We hope you enjoyed the songs we picked out for you.
