Photo Hunters PET and Caturday Cat Art

This week's Photo Hunters theme is PET.

Angel Tamir was so content to have Auntie El and Mom's friend Jane PET him simultaneously!

 Today is also Caturday Cat Art Blog Hop

We used SuperPhoto's painting effect and then used Ribbet to make a heart around Angel Tamir for Valentines Day.

Flashback Friday with Angel Katie

We know most of you have never seen Angel Katie.  She was Mom's Toy American Eskimo dog and Mom's first dog.  She moved here to Florida with Mom and lived to be 16.   She was also a model for Mom when she sold dog sweaters and coats.  Here's Angel Katie modeling a red slicker raincoat with a heart made of dog bones on it.  We thought it was appropriate for Valentines Weekend.

Thankful Thursday - an award!

It's been a really long time since we got a blogging award and we were surprised and pleased to recieve the One Lovely Blog Award from our pal Sammy at One Spoiled Cat.  We received this one a couple of years ago but we know we have a lot of new friends so we're going to post it again since there are probably things you DON'T know about us!

The rules of acceptance are:
1-Thank the person who nominated you and link their blog in the post.2-Copy the rules and add the blog award badge as an image
3-Share 7 facts about yourself to your fellow bloggers.
4-Then nominate up to 15 people.

Thank you Sammy!!  We appreciate getting this award.
Facts about us
1.  Ellie has started sleeping on Dad's pillow.  At first, she pushed him off and got the whole pillow for herself.   Now they've come up with a truce.  This all started with Dad's radiation and we think maybe his scent is different.
2.  Allie loves to machine paw things...doors, cabinets, walls.  Usually in the middle of the night.
3. Raz loves to make biscuits in Mom's neck and purr until he falls asleep.  Mom loves that...except the time he drooled in her mouth!
4.  Raz is the Dean of Students at Cat Scouts University.
5.  Mom is a slacker so involved in things, we often don't have time to visit all of our pals and comment.  We DO read through our reader.
6.  Our "official" names are not Raz,, Ellie and Allie...they are Razputin, Zorelda and Zoralda.
7. Ellie and Allie like people food (especially butter)  Raz...not so much.
Now comes the hard part....every one of our friends has a Lovely Blog but we need to nominate some.  Since we know quite a few of you may already have it, we're nominating 5 blogs.  We thought we would pick five that you might not know.  If any of you have already received it or don't want to post, that's okay.  We hope that our pals here will at least stop by and visit your blogs.
Thanks again Sammy!  This is a cool award and we want any of our other friends who would like to take the award to grab it and post about yourselves.

Tasty Tuesday #ChewyInfluencer

We were recently  given the opportunity to review  Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Boost Mixers for chewy.com.

 As you know, we're part of the chewy.com  #ChewyInfluencer group.  Normally we would post on the Chewy Blog Hop that is on the 3rd Tuesday of the Month, but we got a little behind in our posts so we're doing it today.

From the chewy.com site:

Happy Birthday in Heaven

Today would have been our Auntie El's birthday.  It's hard to believe that this is the third year we're celebrating her birthday without her.

We really miss Auntie El.  We know there's a big birthday bash for her today in Heaven.  We hope that the Osso Buco is yummy and that there is a giant Italian Wedding Cake for dessert.

Happy Birthday Auntie El, we love you!
