Come fly with me!

0522aLike many of my other blogosphere friends we are honoring Sammy, King of Baconia, from OneSpoiledCat, today. On his way to the Rainbow Bridge today Sammy made a whirlwind tour of many places where his many friends live. He visited me this morning in Virginia Beach, Va!


First, you stopped by mom’s work – I wasn’t even awake then!welcome-sammy

Later in the morning I met you at Mount Trashmore. Weird name, right? Its really a mountain (well, hill really) made of trash. It’s the old city dump repurposed back during the 70’s. Mount Trashmore 2 is in the making but it won’t be ready for a few more years and will be twice as big as this one. That round thing on the side of the mountain is the city

king-neptuneThen I took you to the beach – no trip to my city is complete without a trip to the ocean! I introduced you to King Neptune – but as you found out, he looks fierce but he bowed in humble gratitude that the Supreme King Sammy of Baconia would deign to visit him in his humble abode by the Atlantic Ocean. Remember he offered you the sea turtle he’s holding, but you wisely declined as you have a lot of other places to visit today and your balloon would hold the extra weight!

Well, our time together has drawn to a close. I’m so glad you came to visit my city and so glad you came into my life. Sammy, you brought joy and laughter and quite a few greenie badges to me and the Wrecking Crew. We will miss you so much but we know we will see you again. When you get to the Bridge, please tell Piper I miss her so much and tell LadyBird how much mom still misses her.  We love you and fly free forever, beloved King Sammy.


Thank you to Dory, Madi, and Angle Easy for dreaming up this adventure and hosting it. To see more of Sammy’s whirlwind tour, please click on the badge.

I’m answering #’s 1 & 2

1.       Two meals a day makes Toby a grumpy boy. I prefer three to elebentybillion meals a day


2.       My favorite magazine is whatever mom is reading at the time. She doesn’t really read them so much as mine them for collage materials.

3.       Recently, I’ve begun to feel my age. I meow and meow for food but when mom puts it down for me I get confused as to where it is. She often has to turn me around and show it to me. I must be older than she thinks. I don’t know. I’m a former street cat. Wait. What was I talking about? When’s breakfast? Where’s breakfast?


4.       Even though I’m getting older, I know I will be well cared for in my twilight years. My mom loves me very much. I even accidentally peed on her bed and she didn’t even say anything to me about it. That was very nice of her. I think I had an accident while sleeping. I don’t remember. When’s breakfast?

Look Who Decided to Visit!

It’s MerryBelle! 0926a


Now I know you’re thinking “But doesn’t she live in your house?” And you would be right! But as she is 99.99999% feral she won’t come any where near mom and only when it’s food time and mom isn’t around does she come around us. So, this is a real treat!0926b


She’s taken to sleeping in mom’s closet and actually came out this morning to say hi – with mom in the room!! Mom was able to get these pics before she scurried back to the closet! Mom figures as long as she sees her at least once a day (usually coming out of the litter box room or the kitchen from eating) she’s going to let MerryBelle do what she wants to do. So I wanted to share these photos with you because who knows when we’ll see her again!!!0926c
