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+

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
