Friday facts and fill ins


I'm gonna get a bell for Dad to wear

that way I won't have to waste energy going around looking for him


Be sure to pop in tomorrow if you have time....there could be dancing or possibly twerking
just sayin'


Speaking of end of year things....
You all probably know my peeps walk early in the morning 5 days a week at the local mall.
When the weather is good, they walk outside all around the mall and the nearby trails.
As the walk they are always on the look out for coins.  They have a jar where they
save the coins found in a year.  At the end of the year, they take it to the coin counter at our bank.  Last January 8th mom found $11.00 in an empty parking deck.  Needless to say she did a happy dance.  Last week took the jar to the bank.  Including the $11.00
they had a total of $51.46 that they found in 2016.
Walking will make you healthier and wealthier!!

Mom is joining our friends for today's fill ins


And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. 
1. I have seen ELVIS Presley play in concert.
2. I would like to attend a George Strait concert.
3. In the dead of Winter, I wear sweatshirts.
4. The main ringer on my cell phone is don't laugh, I still have a flip phone, the ringer is just a standard ring. I only use it for emergencies when away!

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday and a Cat Tale

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday with Angel Sammy

This will be a poem to tell you how we came to blog
Today's post is brought to you by the letter
D

D O G S
by Madi(son) D. Cat

I am a cat that is a fact.
BUTTTTTTTT
I started my blog because of Dogs
MOL MOL I hear you cool cats yeowling
Madi take a pill for sure you are ill.
It is true one day on a whim 
I took a swim
Into the deep dark waters of the internets I dove.
Lo and behold as I lurked about
I saw D O G S living, loving and thriving here.
To myself I thought could this be 
another world here for me?
I stuck my nose into a few places that K9's graced. 
 There I found two friends (Daily Dose of Jack and Dog Daze)
They were ready and willing to lend me their pawz.
Come June 2017 it will be year  EIGHT (8)!!
It is all because I found 
DOGS and they were GREAT
Soon I learned CATS lived here too and 
my oh my it was time to 
CELEBRATE!!

Now for a little video

Everybuddy who knows me knows all about my love of anything with catnip; 
however, my favorite non nip toy is the clear plastic ring that is often
found around the neck of vitamins or mouthwash bottles.
Also these clear rings are the only things I regularly tote!!
You know divas don't tote they have toting staff!!
If you turn up your volume, you can here it as it crinkles
We call this video
"Clearly Madi's favorite toy"

WORDLESS WEDNESDAY


For your listening pleasure, may we suggest you turn up your volume?
Thank you


I HAVE A POWERFUL PURR!!

Tuesday Tale of Trash and trees





Dad and TOGM started a new tradition this year!!  
I hear it is catching on like wildfire around the 'hood.  
It is called a lazy rednecks Christmas Chair...yes Chair not Tree


Yep this is where our tree should have been, but Dad and TOGM never got the
tree out of the box, Dad was a tad under the weather in early December by the time
he was chipper again it was 7 days before Christmas.  So mom
put the Christmas blankie over the chair and then all the packages in the chair.
After all the pressies were unwrapped, TOGM grabbed the blankie off the Christmas Chair
folded it up.  Quickest ever getting the 'tree' down!!

That is how a lazy redneck decorates!!

Mayoral Inauguration

Ohhhhhhhhh was I pleased as punch when Mayor Elect Arty invited me to say a few
words today.  One thing about Southern gals you all may (or may not) know is we are never, ever, no never at a loss for words.  It has been said we could talk the ears off a corn stalk!!


Mayor Arty asked me to speak about being Mayor and a citizen of Blogville.
Mayor Arty you are following in the pawprints 3 fine men mayors Frankie, Murphy and Stanley
and moi, Madi, the first feline and first female mayor.  Congratulations on being elected mayor of this fine community we lovingly call Blogville.  If I was only allowed one word to describe  being a citizen of Blogville, it would be "ACCEPTED"!! 
That is what my little Feline Heart felt when I took office.
Speaking of females Mayor Arty you have one fine one by your side in
Mabel and I hear she is a huggy puggy too!!
I was a feline walking in K9 pawprints and everyone accepted me.
Even though I shop on the dark side of Petsmart.
BUTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT  thankfully I can use more words.
In closing, I would like to use each letter of Mayor to describe the office.

Many hats
Awesome job
You will cherish every moment
Outreach to community creating fun and gaiety

Responsibility 

Mayor Arty, good luck, have fun, and holler if you need me to help.  I'm here fur you good buddy.
Hugs Madi(son) D. Cat, 
Feline Female Mayor Emeritus,
Director of F.L.U.F.F  and Dispatcher 2017 Mayoral Cabinet.
