Peaches Welcome Hat Ceremony

Special Note: We posted this yesterday for CATURDAY ART but if you've not seen it, we wanted to leave it here for The Cat on My Head's Sunday blog hoppers too! Here's Peaches now to explain!

Hello everyone, Peaches here! Yes it’s true, I want to share my totally cool HAT CEREMONY  (see below short video)


You can in fact read about my HAT activities on page 185  in
Deb Barnes’ treasured book, Makin' Biscuits.  My story & those of countless other “creative cats” appear. I feel honored to be among them.

 You will also find some of your fellow bloggers there such as 15 and Meowing, Lola the Rescued Cat, Cat Chat with Caren and Cody, The Island Cats & many more!

MEANWHILE: I know you’re dying to know about my hat ceremony.  Well, I meet my human at the door every day with a nice meow and THEN when removes her HAT. … I put it on!  If I do say so myself  I look much better in all hats than she does.



 To prove this is true, I have attached the little video (above) I helped my human make showing me trying on a blue hat, a green hat, a striped hat and a grey furry hat.  I feel a real communion with the hats. I hope you don’t think I’m crazy?

Re MAKIN' BISCUITS": You can buy Deb's book to read thru Amazon on Kindle & my human did that, but she really enjoys the paperback, finding the little stories wonderful bedtime reading! Thanks Deb for giving us a rare glimpse into the lives of so many funny wonderful cats including your  wonderful 7 furrrballs.  We never tire of reading about their adventures.

Goofy Paprika

 Good morning all, for Athena & Marie's Caturday Art t I thought it would be fun to share the goofy pic  of Paprika for Chewy Influencer recently.  

Paprika has always been a "humorist" but this is probably her funniest pic.

Behind the photo:
 I was trying to capture a yawn this past but got this "ha ha ha" instead.

2) I downloaded the green background  + hat and clover from Adobe *as part of their "first ten pictures free" special* (more below).  3) Also from Chewy.com the Greenies graphic 


Original picture of Paprika caught
at the end of a yawn.
Go Paprika!!
  
4) I did the rest in Picmonky: pulled up the green background as a "screen" and laid it over the photoUsed "fade" and erase" so you can see the photo clearly

 5) added the lettering and clip art.  


Having said all, that, a belated St Paddy day to all and may the luck of the Irish be with you this spring and always!


Thank you Caturday Art and Athena and Marie for giving me the opportunity to share fun stuff and enjoy yours! Here are some more amazing curries to enjoy!

* Adobe clipart site offers 10 free downloads as part of their monthly plan. I had been looking for a good clipart site besides the free ones I use where I'm never quite sure if I'm ok t o use the pix.  Since I had some technical difficulties with Adobe, I did not keep my membership (they have a lot of "Adobe Illustrator" files & I don't have that software. I ended up trying out Dreamstime instead but will probably switch to a much cheaper site.

Happy St Catrick's Day

 Irish Blessing:
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun rise warm upon your face,
and the rain fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
may god hold you in the hollow of his hand



Sharing with the above blessing with Our Dear Blogging friends. We wish you a happy & peaceful day with lots of corned beef!

About the photo;  Peaches & Paprika commune in a rare moment of comfort after return from vet visit.  Familiar ground (and a little cat kiss) at last! (Graphic by Imikimi).

Greenie Feline Dental Treats Review - #Chewyinfluencer


As a holiday treat, we BEGGED our human to review GREENIE Feline Dental Treats from Chewy.com as part of the #ChewyInfluencer program...so we could have some as soon as possible! 

We have learned they are the #1 vet-recommended dental chew which offers complete nutrition AND helps us maintain good dental care.  
Okay so  its  our human who cares about all of that. 
After all, she looks after those things like making sure keep our beautiful pointed fangs healthy.


What WE care about is that they're really yummy! 

According to what our human tells us, their unique shape and CRUNCHY texture helps reduce tartar. 

They ALSO have added vitamins, minerals, taurine & chlorophyll.  Best yet, each treat is only 1.25 calories and without articifical flavors or preservatives.Thank goodness because I need to watch my girlish waistline.

Every night after dinner we wait impatiently.. we know our human will give us 2 or 3 "treats" to help "wash down" our dinners. Yes!! Mrow.  Here you see us waiting expectantly for our nightly delight.

Our human sleeps better at night knowing she's helping our teeth while bringing us purring joy.   

We got & love the roasted chicken flavor but there are many others to give your cat variety:  Salmon, Ocean Whitefish, Beef, Tuna (Tuna!) and even CATNIP!  There is a sale on most flavors now (except catnip!) and the price is reduced to only $3.89 + tax. For that price you can buy all the flavors!!

Below, you will see Paprika (always a kidder) inviting a tooth exam.What would we do without her?


You can order Greenies Feline Dental treats through Chewy.com's website and we thoroughly recommend them!
  Your kitties will thank you for the tooth healthy treats AND the deliciousness, believe us!

Irish Blessing:  
May the road rise up to meet you.  
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun rise warm upon your face,
 and the rain fall soft upon your fields. 
And until we meet again,
may god hold you in the hollow of his hand.

SNOW DAY - Bonanza for Cats

Yesterday, as all of us on the Northeast corridor know, we had a big big big BIG storm. Human: ecstatic at staying home from work. It seemed every bird in the neighborhood was at our window or deck. "You Know Who" lost no time in taking advantage....

Taste of The Wild Prod Review #Chewy Influencer





By Paprika the cat: 


In touch with my Inner Tiger
I don't know about you but I am VERY in touch with my "inner Tiger."  I am "into" high places, door-tops, you name it.  I feel greatly in touch with my ancestors.




That's why when I was presented with the opportunity by Chewy.com to try Taste of the WILD Rocky Mountain canned cat food I jumped (leaped) at the opportunity.   
Their goal for us felines is:
 "The Balanced Ancestral Diet that Nature Intended"

(Sounds like a winner to me!) The grain-free formula has real salmon, chicken liver & roasted venison.  Venison! It's also supplemented with vegetables, fruits AND antioxidants.  

Checking to Make sure all the Cans are here!



My human read me more! this combo of animal proteins  with lower carbohydrate & more water intake lets me keep my svelte lean body so  I can keep jumping on high places.

Peaches lurking behind a tree
One of my high places near the ceiling
  You may remember I have a sister, Peaches, who THINKS she is a wild cat too. NOT!

Her idea of being wild is to lurk behind furniture (and trees if she could find any) and stalk ME! 

Hah! I can ALWAYS get away from her, and if I keep lean and mean with a diet like Taste of the Wild I'll always outrun her! 


Taste of the WILD  (3 ounce cans) are on sale at Chewy.com for only $16.56 at present, down from $28.99. They are also available in 5.5 size.  1-2 day shipping free with $49 order. 

Remember we only live once and healthy is definitely the way to go!
