Annual Purr-Fur-Mance Review

It's that time again.....Mom's Annual Purr-Fur-Mance Review!!  We haven't done one in a long time so we're wayyy overdue. As you can see by the badge, we haven't done one in ages.

Here are the items to be reviewed....




1. Mom does a good job getting our blog updated daily but we are not famous. We think she does her best though so we give her 4 paws for this one.

2. Quality of Output. Here we have a problem.....why does she insist on posting unflattering photos of us? She gets 2 paws for this.

3. Client Pawticipation. We hope all of our furiends can contact us when they want to. We have our own email and Mom always lets us check all our comments. 4 paws.

4. Pawticipation Part II. Mom lets us pawticipate in a lot of activities. We can't wait for the next one (Wordy Wednesday). We often wonder if Mom lets us pawticipate so she doesn't have to come up with a clever post for those days, but we don't care since we like to join in the fun. 4 paws

5. Client Satisfaction. Hmmm.....we think YOU have to let us know on that one. We hope all of our pals like our posts. We weren't sure how to rate on this one.

6. Overall Rating. We give Mom a 4 paws rating. We would like to be able to comment on our furiends blogs more (Mom spends too much time on that evil facebook playing games) but we do try to visit and comment as much as we can. We know Mom tries. What can we expect...she's only HUMAN!

Monday Sparks - Random Acts of Kindness Day

Thanks to Zoolatry for the great graphic.


Today is Random Acts of Kindness Day so our Spark is all about Kindness!  Mom is going to make a special effort to do something special for someone today.

Even though McGuffy's reader is taking a break, we are continuing our Monday Sparks posts!  From the original Sparks posts:
Welcome to Sparks. Many years ago, it was my intent to post an inspirational thought each Monday. It would be my weekly meditation, and perhaps feed other people's spirit as well. Life got busy, and this fell by the wayside. Now, I feel a strong need to bring this feature back. 
The negative energy in the world has become thick and oppressive. Social media has become a part of this dark, negative storm. There is an obvious universal need for more positive energy and peace. And, we can all be part of this affirmative change. 
I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!
I hope you will join us. Please link up a positive quote, thought, poem, or verse. The badge and code can be found in my sidebar. Add the badge to your post to invite others. The more, the merrier. I welcome your thoughts. Peace.

Sunday Selfies

We're pawticipating in The Cat on My Head's Sunday Selfies today.



Today we have another woofie that Mom met at the park.  This little cutie is named Lola and is only a couple of months old.  She's a pretty good selfie taker!


Of course, Mom got an earworm after she heard Lola's name and was SCREECHING  singing this song all day....

Poetic Thankful Thursday

Today is Poetic Thursday hosted by our pals Teddy and Angel Sammy at Two Spoiled Cats


Today's photo prompt is


Lost Springs
One person lives here
No neighbors are near
Wow, look at that elevation
Probably no fire or police station.
Seems to far away
Who would come to play?

Today is also Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!


We're THANKFUL that Mom retrieved our LOST SPRINGS and other toys from under the sofa!!!  These are just the ones she got from under the sofa.

The Adventures of Periwinkle and Stinky


Periwinkle was so excited.  Stinky was on his way to her.  She missed him so much and couldn't wait to see him.

WHOOOSH......she could hear the teleportation tunnel signaling Stinky's arrival!  The two tabbies rushed to each other and hugged tightly and shared whisker kisses.  "I'm so happy you are here," said Periwinkle.  We have lots to do today."  Stinky was curious and asked what she had planned.  "Well, you know Valentine's Day is later this week, right?"  Stinky nodded, wondering where she was going with this.  "I thought it would be fun to search out cool presents that our fans might be interested in buying.  I know it's a little late, but some of them are available with one-day shipping.  Some things take longer but, better late than never!"  "Great idea, Periwinkle!  It might be nice to find some things for our Moms too."  Periwinkle agreed and smiled to herself.  Stinky was so thoughtful. She didn't tell him, but she had another surprise for him after they did their shopping.

"Mom says we can use her laptop" said Periwinkle.


The tabbies got to work searching out Valentine's gifts that they thought their friends would love. The first site they went to was Amazon where they found these great nip toys that could ship out quickly.

Yeowww Hearrrt Attack Catnip Toy, Lick Me Bite Me Bunnykick Me


Periwinkle said she was pretty sure her big sisfur Allie had gotten one of these for her husband Mauricio (Stinky's brofur).  They both agreed that Yeowww nip was pawsome!

Next they found this set of heart shaped nip toys from Imperial Cat.


and this set of five heart-shaped nip toys.


Moving on to other sites, they visited Mom's friend's site at Catching Lizards to find this adorable blanket and some catnip kisses toys.



They also found great gifts to give their humans.  This mug from Etsy was a favorite.

If you can get someone to take you to Target, you can get your human chocolates!


After a while, both Stinky and Periwinkle needed a break from surfing the internet for gifts.  Stinky asked Periwinkle what the surprise she had was.  "I'll be right back" she said.  Stinky scratched his head and wondered what his girlfriend was up to.

"Whoa, you look beautiful," said Stinky when he saw Periwinkle.  "I brought you something to wear too" said Periwinkle.  


"I thought we could celebrate Valentine's Day together early since we won't see each other on Thursday" said Periwinkle.  "Mom made us reservations at a nice place"  Off the went to have their Valentine's celebration together.  "This restaurant sure knows how to prepare Fancy Feast!  It's so elegant" said Stinky.  Periwinkle agreed.


Periwinkle and Stinky took their time enjoying their meal together.  They knew it was almost time for their adventure to end and for Stinky to go home.

When they arrived back at Periwinkle's house, they made sure they each had the special card they got for their Mom's for Valentine's day.


With a sigh and a tear, Periwinkle and Stinky said their goodbyes.  They hugged each other tightly and shared whisker kisses.  Stinky entered the teleportation tunnel and with a WHOOSSH, he was headed home.
