We're taking turns answering this week.  First Allie, next Raz, Noelle and finally, Mom.

1. I could not __imagine my life___ without __my handsome husband Mauricio____.
2. A simple pleasure I enjoy is ___EATING TREATS (you saw that coming, right?)______.

3. If I could change one thing about myself,  change?  I'm a cat...I am purrfect!__.

4. __Peace___ is hard to find these days.

Today is also Flashback Friday.  This picture of Angel Tamir was taken when we first arrived in Florida.  That crate is how most of us traveled here in Mom's van.

First Haircut

Wow, look at me getting my first haircut!
If I could walk, I'm sure I'd strut.
I don't want to be rude
But I sure am a handsome dude!

Today is also Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

We're THANKFUL that once again, Mom was one of FOUR to be first to comment on Teddy's Tuesday Teaser!  Isn't this another pawsome badge?

The Adventures of Periwinkle and Stinky

Periwinkle was so excited, she could hardly contain herself.  Her special guy, Stinky was in the teleporter and on his way. 

The familiar WOOOOSHHHH told her that Stinky had arrived!!

"Hi Periwinkle!  I sure have missed you.  Thanks for helping out with Cooper Murphy's Gotcha Day Party."  "I was glad to help, she replied.  I missed you a lot too"  The two tabbies hugged each other tightly and spent some time holding paws and catching up on the week since their last adventure.  Periwinkle was very happy to hear that Stinky was well behaved at his VET appointment and that his bloodwork was good.

"Perwinkle, what are we going to do today?  You didn't mention bringing my coat so I figured we were going to stay here in Florida where it is warm"  "I thought I would show you some of our local sights" said Periwinkle.  "We're going to go on an Airboat ride"  "Whoa...that sounds pawsome" said Stinky.  The two entered the teleporter and headed out.  Fortunately, it was a super short trip.

The airboat was ready to leave so Periwinkle and Stinky both got their protective earmuffs and jumped on.  They were surprised that they were the only cats onboard.

"Stinky, can you please hold my paw, this is a little scary."  Stinky quick took Periwinkle's paw in his paw.  They couldn't wait to see what kind of wildlife they would find.  And they sure did!!

First, they saw the Snowy Egret.

Then a tri-color Heron.

Periwinkle giggled and said "Good thing the Tabbies of Trout Town aren't here.  They're not a big fan of burds!  Both Periwinkle and Stinky gasped when they saw the next creature.....

"Holy Carp, Periwinkle!  That guy is BIG"  Periwinkle agreed.  They were glad when the airboat moved away from the big gator!!

Next, they saw a Bobcat!  Both tabbies agreed that the Bobcat was gorgeous!  It was nice to see another feline too.

The airboat returned to the dock and Periwinkle and Stinky stayed for lunch.  They were really impurressed with the selection of Fancy Feast.

Sadly, it was time for them to go.  Periwinkle and Stinky jumped into the teleporter and held paws and soon they were back at Periwinkle's house.  "I sure hate to go" said Stinky.  Periwinkle agreed that it was hard for them to part.  They spent some time sharing whisker kisses and enjoying just being together.  "Guess I'd better head home now.  Mom and my fursibs will be missing me."  "I know, Stinky, I will miss you.  Please be a good boy and I'll look forward to seeing you next week"  With one more hug, Stinky got into the teleporter and WOOOSH...he was on his way home.  Periwinkle wiped a tear from her eye but smiled at the memory of their fun day.   She couldn't wait for next week.

Monday Sparks

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.

Here is our Sparks post for today

Tomorrow is a new episode of The Adventures of Periwinkle and Stinky.  We hope you stop by to see what those two tabbies are up to now!

Friendly Fill-ins

We're pawticipating in Friendly Fill-ins sponsored by Four Legged Furballs and 15 and Meowing.  This week our friends at 15 and Meowing are not posting because they lost their precious Prancie.  If you haven't already, please stop by and leave them some comforting comments.  Our friend Teddy from Two Spoiled Cats made this badge for Prancie.

Noelle is answering for us today!

1. When I am __scared___ I __think of my very brave boyfriend, Sawyer___.

2. I want to __be a good sisfur____ for _Raz and Allie___.

3. No one knows me better than __Mom__.

4. _Spending time with Sawyer__ is a thought that crosses my mind often. 

Today is also Flashback Friday and we're sharing this photo of Allie having a smackdown with Angel Ellie while Angel Tamir tries to ignore them both!

Poetic Thankful Thursday

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

Today's photo prompt is

Mom is terrified of heights and this made her dizzy so we did a haiku so she didn't have to look at it too much.

That guy must be nuts
That's way too high for us
It makes us dizzy

Today is also Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

We are THANKFUL for all of our wonderful friends, our safe and loving home and TREATS (Okay...Raz added that one but we all agree)  We're also THANKFUL that Mom persevered even though the Tuesday Teaser was later this week and we got this pawsome badge for being one of FOUR first guessers.  
We also guessed correctly but not first and won this super badge too!

What are you thankful for today?
