K Is For Kitty

For once I am actually gonna post the same as the graphic.
Except this is not my kitten I will posting. It is in my family though, I suppose it could even be my fur-niece.
Let me tell you all about it.
Meet Sophie.
She is one of five kitties that my nephew found abandoned this winter along the train tracks. All of the five kitties got nice warm and loving homes, but Sophie got the best one of all. My sister's.
She loves to play and run around. She is quite the character really.
Plus she is so spoiled she will not eat treats from the ground. She will only eat them if my sister picks her up and feeds her by hand.
One day, she decided to climb up my nephews pant leg all the way to the top of his head. She thought sitting on his baseball cap was the bees knees!
Wish I had a photo, but that is a memory you will have to visualize in your mind. It was funny though.
Anyway, she is the newest addition to my family, even though it's extended family.

Do you consider your siblings/parents/family pets as family too?

  2. My pets are my family, no question. I think I would like your sister and her family. People who rescue and are kind to animals are tops in my books.

  10. Sophie is a cutie patootie! She sounds like a sweet little fur-niece!
    When our cat Domino was a kitten, he would climb up my jeans and sit on my shoulder while I was at the sink. Thank goodness he didn't try it when I had on shorts!

  11. What a cute little kitty! I consider all my family and friends' pets to be their children! Lol! I call my friends' dog "my nephew".

  12. Freda, our pet children are definitely that! Our children!! Even our human children know that! When we say, "You'll never guess what your brother did today," they know we are talking about Mulligan. Our middle daughter doesn't have any human children, so her pets are her children. Her yellow lab, Lucy, has lung cancer and has had one of her legs removed (cancer), so when we took a winter vacation together, all the children came along as well. We rented a house on the beach, and the house had an elevator so Lucy could join us on the beach. We had a wonderful time, and I am so glad, because Lucy will probably not have another vacation. It was bittersweet.

  13. My dog is definitely a big part of the family, and I never wanted a dog... now I wouldn't be without. What a lucky kitty to be rescued from the train tracks into a wonderful new life!

  14. I do consider my kids' pets a part of our family...

    I like the term fur-niece - Very kreative!

    Sophie is really cute, and visualizing her climbing up your nephew is too funny!

    Thanks for linking to the letter "K".

    A+

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners. You Want to Be a Credible Source of InformationWhen you put content out on the web, you want it to be either entertaining or useful – ideally both. You may work hard on writing good posts or hiring people who can create useful and interesting stuff…
