Simon Says: Its my turn for Friday Fill-Ins!


I get to answer Friday Fill-Ins this week!!! My answers are in RED!!

1. I prefer binge watching my favorite tv shows with mom to watching them one by one each week.

2. Getting used to Toby going outside and me having to stay inside was much harder than I expected. Mom says I can go outside but only if I wear a harness and walk on a leash. I tried telling her the harness is too heavy and I can’t walk under its weight but she said I must learn to wear it if I want to explore the great outdoors again. Oh, well. I’ll just watch from the window.155

3. One way that I relax is after eating I lounge underneath the sink in the kitchen.simon head shot

4. Mom petting me always makes me purr very loudly.feb 26 05ab

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!

Next Up! BobbieSue reporting…

BobbieSue reporting for WTWC News! 

I have a special report about a new museum that has opened in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. It’s called Civil War Tails and is “possibly America’s most whimsical war museum.” (Karen Heller, The Washington-Post Weekly). 

Rebecca and Ruth Brown, 32-year-old twins, have recreated various battles of the Civil War using clay sculpted into cat soldiers!


The sisters bought a historic house, The Homestead – built in 1869, and established their Diorama museum there. The museum was born of a love of making cat figures and of Civil War history.


Everything is handmade and on a 1:1 scale. 

Little Round Top

The trees are made of twigs and reindeer moss, each individually glued. 


They have made thousands of cats as well as anything a soldier needs for battle – horses, cannons, rifles, tents – all hand made! Please go HERE to see the large size of one of the diorama’s – it’s humongous!!!

We haven’t been to the museum, but it is on our list of places to visit!!!

I hope you enjoyed my report – I’ll be back again with more cat/animal news!!

Au revoir, Frankie

Frankie Eternity Awaits

Frankie crossed the Rainbow Bridge last night. From August 2000 to May 20, 2016 we were blessed to have wonderful and loving Frankie in our lives. He was one of my first playmates when I moved into mom’s and granmama’s home. He taught me how to be a man-cat and was a joy to know.

We remember him in love and thank all of our friends for purring and praying for him during his final days.

With fond remembrance and love,


Friendly Friday Fill-ins!

Questions are in  reddish and my answers in blue!

1.Everyone should read a really great book about CATS! If you need help choosing, let me know!

2. My first trip to the vet was when I was 8 weeks old and was a scary thing! I had ouchy things stuck in my hip, one particularly yukky thing stuck up my bum – where’s my mom!?!?!?! Oh – she was there being silly and loving on me. By the way, I weighed 2 pounds, 9 ounces!!068
