Ellen is of course my co-host for the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge, but she is currently taking a few days off of blogging. She still wished for us to continue on the with the Fill-Ins challenge as usual, though. Ellen did come up with the first two fill-ins this week, and I came up with the second two. In case you missed them yesterday, here they are again:
1. I get to _________ every week.
2. So far, 2019 is _________.
3. I will never tire of _________.
4. Can you believe that _________?
And, here's how I filled in this week's fill-ins:
1. I get to scrub litter boxes every week.
(Now, now, don't be jealous. Then again, most of you probably don't need to be jealous, because you most likely get to do this yourself. After all, if the litter boxes don't get scrubbed down, we all suffer.)
2. So far, 2019 is hectic.
(I really wanted to put something inspiring here, but I'm going to be totally honest and admit that I haven't quite found my footing yet in 2019. One of my goals for this New Year is to better schedule in all of the things that are important to me, and all of my goals for the year, in a manageable fashion. Once things calm down just a tad bit in February, I plan to really work on this. That all being said, though, I feel blessed every single day, including all 25 days so far of 2019.)
3. I will never tire of quality time with my furbabies.
(I came to a realization the other day, when participating in one of kitten Tonks's hours long games of fetch. Sadly, my furbabies will not be with me forever. So, even if their demands for attention may not always seem all that convenient, I better cherish them, and I most certainly will cherish them. I will always carve time out for my furbabies, and I will bask in the quality time I have with them, even if it means setting aside other plans. My furry babies are, after all, the center of my world, a fact that I will never regret for even one second.)
4. Can you believe that there are six cats in my house and only one truly meows?
(Kitten Winky is essentially the only cat in the house who can say anything resembling, "Meow." Evan and Eddy make the most noise, but they pretty much only know how to let out ear-piercing screams. Whether they're happy or angry, it's always a scream. Thimble is pretty much mute, except for her constant purrs and occasional chirps, and that strange noise she makes when she's talking to the wall. Kitten Tonks is also more or less a mute, unless she's making mournful wails when playing with her toys. Oh, and as for Toby, the big boy of the house, he seems only capable of letting out tiny whispers and squeaks completely disproportionate to his size. And if you're wondering about pup Astrid, she is like Thimble and Tonks and is pretty much mute. The primary noise she makes is an incredibly strange one that I can't even really describe. It's something like an inquisitive, "Huh? Huh? Huh? Huh? Huh?", spoken on repeat, and mostly reserved for when she is excited to meet a new cat.)

Now, who's ready for some bloopers?
Melissa and Mudpie of Melissa's Mochas, Mysteries, & Meows host the Pet Photo Fails! Blog Hop on the last Friday of the month, and there's no one better to share some bloopers here on our end than the blooper queen herself.
Blooper queen Eddy, and all of us here, wish you a fantastic Friday!
Our Tip of the Day:
One more note we want to make regards none other than mice. This time of year, mice might find ways to enter our homes, garages, sheds, and so forth, in search of a warm place to stay. What's more, mice can carry parasites such as fleas, tapeworms, and roundworms. This means, especially if your furbaby gets near or even eats a mouse inside the home, or anywhere else, they are at risk such parasites. This is yet another reason to keep up with parasite prevention for your furbaby, no matter what time of year it is.
