1. I spend _________ hours per day online.
2. When I go online, I use my _________.
3. Mother's Day _________.
4. I wish _________.
And, here is how I filled these in:
1. I spend too many hours per day online.
(I greatly value my time blogging and visiting all of you blogging friends of ours. That time is priceless to me. It's when I start frittering away precious time by way of web surfing that I feel ashamed of myself.)
2. When I go online, I use my cat-proofing skills.
(If I'm going to be doing something really important online, like paying bills or shopping, I have to put kitty blocks up around the computer. Otherwise,
3. Mother's Day is a day to celebrate those who nurture.
(Whether she has human children, furry children, or anything and everything in between, a mother figure who nurtures and loves is someone to celebrate. Thank you to all of the mothers out there!)
4. I wish I had the power of healing.
(I have always thought that, if I could have any superpower, I would choose this one. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have the power to heal our furbabies, our family, our friends, and even strangers?)
We now have a bit of an announcement regarding the Friendly Fill-Ins. Annie of McGuffy's Reader is taking a much-needed and well-deserved break from blogging. We are sending Annie, her furbabies, and her entire family our most heartfelt purrs, woofs, and prayers.
Now, I will be joining Ellen in hosting the Friendly Fill-Ins each Friday. I have always greatly enjoyed participating in this fun hop each week, so when Ellen approached me about being her co-host, I was thrilled and honored.

Okay, who's ready for some miraculously non-blurry Eddy?
Just as with last week, this shot was taken during one of Eddy's intense window whiffies sessions. This usually wild girl allowed this mom of hers to snap multiple shots of her that day, which means we are treating those shots like gold and will share them slowly and steadily over the next couple of weeks.
Our Doodle of the Day:
This doodle I created for my angel Rosie is very, very similar to some drawings I've done in the past. But, I felt compelled to do a bit of a repeat.
Rosie was and always will be one of my heroes, one of my greatest inspirations. Oh, and for those who don't know, Rosie had a faulty eye removed at the age of 21, just a few months before she passed away. She was, as always, a very tough cookie, and she handled the eye removal like a pro. And that's why you might notice her one-eyed state in this doodle.
Our Tip of the Day:The final tip in our wildlife series involves some additional things you can do to help keep the wildlife safe in their environment. First, as you all surely already know, please refrain from littering. Do not toss trash willy-nilly, but instead place it in a secure trash bin, or a recycling bin if relevant. This includes any and all items, as any variety of things can lead to dangers for wildlife. For example, the handles of paper or plastic bags can get stuck around the necks of wildlife critters, or any variety of items could be swallowed and lead to a choking hazard. And that's just naming two potential examples. These are just two of many, many reasons why littering is not ideal.
In addition, before tossing them in a bin, do your best to rinse out cans and other food or drink containers. For one, this can perhaps help reduce the likelihood of wildlife eating food that is potentially unhealthy for them. Also, rinsing food containers can also perhaps reduce the likelihood of wildlife sniffing out leftover debris and therefore breaking into and going through trash and recycling bins, something that we surely all wish to avoid.
We share this land with a great many critters. For this reason, among others, it is important that we keep this land safe for all of its inhabitants. So, please refrain from littering or otherwise contributing to situations that can be dangerous to wildlife.
