T.G.I.F. The Groove



Finally Friday has made it, and none too soon!  I’ll tell you what, we seriously don’t like this getting dark earlier stuff, and it has our feral families all confused too.  They are not really sure what time the meals are served, but they are learning.

Hey, at least the dark earlier thing is good for some nap times.  That leads me right into my T.G.I.F. for today, The Groove Is Feline…as Sister Dolly and I give the synchronized snoozing thing a shot.

Outside of the camera making my belly look big I think we did pretty good at this.  We have to work a little more on getting the same paw action, but I’m quite willing to practice.

I hope you all have a super weekend and please stop by tomorrow for Sister Saturday with Zoe.  I’m sure she might tell you how she is doing these days.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Thankful Thursday: Purina #BetterWithPets, FDNY, Hospitals and Friends



First let me say that we’re sorry for the not-so-good quality of the photos.  The only thing we really had available was our cell phone camera in often low light places.

As you can see, there was a last minute change in plans and Flat Brian did get to go to the Purina Better with Pets Summit in NYC.  Actually, there were lots of changes in plans this trip.

Let me say that the Summit, what we saw of it, was totally terrific and we want to give a special meow-out to Dan and William from Purina for such a wonderful event and for their concern for our Dad.  Okay, lots have posted about the Summit, so ours is a bit different.

The morning of the Summit, my Dad and a blogger pal Jaimie from ThoughtsFurPaws.com boarded the shuttle bus at the hotel to head to the event.  We are not going to disclose too many details here, but let’s just say that Dad had a medical incident with resulted in a call to 911 and an ambulance showing up.  Dad was carted off to the NYU Hospital where he had all kinds of tests, lots and lots of tests.  Not to worry, he is okay now, but we will say it was not a whole lot of fun.  The FDNY EMTs were wonderful and very caring.

This is our Dad and our blogging pal Jaimie.  Jaimie went in the ambulance to the hospital with our Dad, even though it meant she missed the morning sessions of the Summit. Thank you so much Jaimie for being such a terrific friend and we appreciate you to no end!

In the afternoon we did get to see many of the Summit sessions and they were totally awesome and inspirational.  There were lots of bloggers that we knew there and it was so nice to see them again, even with some unusual circumstances.  We were delighted to finally meet up with Layla from CatWisdom101.com and we wish we would have had more time to chat with her.

99999 Then we were thrilled to finally meet Hilary from FeelingBeachie.com and many of you know that she is Angel Alex’s Mom as well as Sister Gracie’s Mother-In-Law.  Flat Brian was so happy to get a Hilary Snuggle!

Dad and Hilary had such a fun time chatting and we are so happy that we all got to met such a wonderful lady and terrific author.

All in all it was a great even, just not quite what we envisioned when we left home.  But we are thankful for the Purina staff, blogging pals, Jaimie, Hilary and everyone else that help to make a weird day very special for us.

Disappointed: What Chewy.com Doesn’t Tell You


Well, this is the second time in recent weeks that we were relying on Chewy.com and they let us down.  We’ve gotten spoiled by their quick shipping to the point where we have relied on them, and that is a big mistake on our part.

Don’t ever wait until you’re down real low on something you really need, like for a sick cat, because you can’t count on them.  This is the second time now they have emailed us as said they shipped our order, but they were out of stock and were shipping from another warehouse location, expect deliver in 5-6 days.  Crap, that means a week.  They need to invest in and upgrade their inventory system so that they tell you that when you are about to order.  IF WE HAD KNOWN THAT WE WOULD NOT HAVE PLACED THE ORDER.  Even though one item has shipped, the second one we had not received a shipping notice on so they would not let us cancel.  With 7 cats we order hundreds of $$$ every month.  Being a good customer has zero value apparently.

Now Dad has to go on a hunt to PetSmart or Petco.  So, the question then becomes, if he has to do that then what is the point of shopping online?

Update: This order had 2 items, both had shipped and they are trying to recall the second item from UPS.  Dad still has to go shopping.
