Einstein's Stern Selfie

Rumpy you better stop... oh, hi, sorry about that and my stern looks. Brother was trying to groom me, again, getting all intense with gnawing  and holding, again. Dad told me he just read a post on his old blog from 8 years ago about good old Aqualung having this same behavior. Actually Dad only needs to say "stop" and he does so there is that, anymeow I didn't want you to think my cranky face was towards you. We love our visitors.

Lets all join The Cat on My Head Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. It's fun and will get you going for the week

Fitz's Blue Art

Hi and welcome to Fitz's Caturday Art. Well not really but I had to give up my Friday this week so want to pop my furry head up. Last week Timmy  used the Dreaming effect and I really thought he looked great. Imagine my surprise when I used it getting a blue bib and fiery eyes. Very cool
Meowing of Timmy he is doing pretty well. He is still eating without any more meds and his fur is looking smooth and nice. If eating can do that I better  get at it.
Aqualung, Rumpy, needed an extra steroid today. Come on big fella, pull up! 

We are joining Athena Cat Goddess for the Caturday Art Blog Hop. Hope you are feeling arty this week too.

Timmy is Thankful for Dad

Hello friends and thanks for stopping by. We always enjoy seeing each and every one of you not only on Thankful Thursdays but anytime you grace our pages. You are the best. Now I want to get to my Thankful for the week who is none other than my Dad. He has been such help to me after the bad time I had last week. Did you know I was held captive for 3 days. You can read about it here on Herding Cat Tips.
Since I have been licking at my special food dish that Dad keeps for me but it is hard to tell how much I eat. You see I graze on the family dishes too. Dad says he will keep those dishes full until Einstein rolls against his foot MOL. It does make it harder for him though.
Last night I got my first medicated ear rub. I didn't even mind. Dad thought it would be messy but no, rather nice. Today (Wed) I almost ate a whole can of The Feast of Fancy, and, it's not even Dinner!
Yes, if it wasn't for Dad I would be in trouble. Then again he says the same about me. Sorry for this long post. I blame Dad MOL

We are joining Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. We hope to see your Thankfuls too

In the Purrsuit of Flavor: Dads Favorite, Hamburger Goulash

The Canadian Cats and Easy Rider threw down a Challenge this week for a food that Dad really loved and would eat any chance he could. He grew up in the family diner so there were a lot of choices, but he always loved Moms Wednesday Menu Goulash. (How about that!) It was not gourmet but it was a tasty filling meal. 

Super Easy Ground Beef Goulash

Ingredients:

1 lb Ground beef 90% lean

1 ½ cup noodles uncooked (About ¼ 16oz box)

1 ½  16oz cans tomato sauce

1 cup beef broth

Cooking oil. Olive, Peanut or choice

Salt, Pepper, Oregano, Sugar (or sweetener per label equivalency) and Sage (Optional)


1. Bring approx 2 qt water to full boil and add a bit of ⅛ tsp salt (Optional) and 1-2 tbs oil. Add pasta. Normal cooking time is about 9-11 minutes depending on altitue. Cut back about 2 minutes what you would normally cook, rinse, drain and set aside in colander. Your oil prevents them from sticking.

2. In a pot brown ground beef and then pour off grease. There will not be much if you use 90% lean but if you use much less add a bit more meat as you will have more shrinkage.

3.  Add tomato sauce and beef broth and bring to a simmer. Add spices. ¼ tsp pepper, ¼ tsp salt, 1 tbs Sugar, 1 tbs oregano. If you use fresh oregano maybe ½ tbs. Dad adds two tbs but he likes it that way. A way to be adventurous is to add a slight pinch of sage. If you are not fond of it no worries.

4. Simmer sauce for 15 to 30min. Longer is better for yummy. Sample as simmering and add salt and pepper to taste.

5. Add Pasta to sauce and bring back to a simmer at least 5 minutes to cook the pasta the rest of the way. You may need to add a bit extra broth but water is fine so you have a nice consistency. 

6. Makes about 6 servings. Enjoy. It is really fast and simple. You can also use a packet of Chili Mix if you like instead of adding your own spices. For milder tastes use Meatloaf Mix. Dad likes his with a bit less pasta and sauce with more meat. This is an easy recipe to “tweak” till it is just how you like it.

I told Dad to fill the bowl up but he said this was "a normal person serving." So figure on 4 nice servings. It is really easy to add meat, pasta and sauce if you want to make for a gathering or some such. If we ever have those again that is
My second opinion was just a big nothing. Dad said they were wallet probing with silly things but he did agree to repeat labs and out in left field FeLv test. I did eat a bit last night but not much today. 
Thanks for the Purrs and Prayers

Toby's Annoyed Art

I can't believe it! I simply can't believe that my gal Fitz insisted that My Post from Monday be used as our Art. I got all flustered just because she wanted a cuddle and then changed her mind 9 times! Ok it was only once, but I got a whap instead of soft fur. Alright, it was me who wanted to cuddle when she was in a bad mood, but come on, that would Annoy any cat!

Thanks for the purrs for Timmy. He is home but still not eating like Dad thinks he should.

We are joining the Caturday Art Blog Hop with Athena Cat Goddess. Are you feeling arty today?

Thankful for PDVC

Friends we are so thankful you could drop by today. We are always happy to see you all and so is Dad. I am spending the night at the vet so some purrs would be appreciated. 
Today we have a very special Thankful. A while ago Dad donated to a rescue group that is dear to us. Project Delta View Cats. We learned about this group through our friend Savannah since Mom L is one of the founders of this group. Today we were so happy to see some of the beautiful cats that we helped in our small way.

Baby is really beautiful. You know she is doing well by how she cares for that wonderful fur

Rosemary looks a bit wary but that is life on the outside. Nice clean bowls of food help

Sampson looks relaxed out for a walk in the sun

Now Rosemary is relaxed since her BFF Alfie is with her at lunch. Aren't they all beautiful. Thanks Savannah and Mom L for a great Thankful!
We want to remind everyone that community cats are those who, for whatever reason, choose to live outside and are not socialized to home life, although some may be a bit social. More info below.

We really are thankful for guessing One Spoiled Cat's Tuesday Teaser. We were not the first but we were right.

We are joining Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. We sure hope to see you with a bucket of thankful this week
