Black Cats and Flashback Friday

   Can you believe another week has flown by? It's the weekend and we're joining our friends on their Friday blog hops. That means we are filling in blanks and flashing back with the Bayou Boys! Have a great weekend with your dogs and cats. 
✎ Fill-In the Blanks
We are joining 15 and Meowing along with Four-Legged Furballs for Friendly Fill-Ins. Be sure to hop over and visit everyone participating.
Oversleeping is an awful way to wake up.
• I always read the comic sections of the newspaper.
• Black cats are awesome. My black Manx was the coolest cat ever. That is Amos with our jack o' lantern.
• Mini Snickers are my favorite treats.

I’m excited to join Five Sibes for their
Happy Flashback Friday Blog Hop.
This photo was taken at the Mardi Gras Barkus and Meoux parade. That is Pierre, Bentley, and our Golden Retriever Tucker. They are dressed as their characters in my book, The Returns. The Returns gang goes undercover in a Mardi Gras pet parade in New Orleans to try to find a criminal. Amos the Manx is also a purr-fect Returns character.
*If you haven’t read The Returns & The Returns 2 ~ Showstoppers, I really think you’ll enjoy them. They are available in ebooks or paperbacks. You'll recognize the faces on the covers.

  1. we thought the same, this week was over too fast... and we have to prepare our crib for howl-o-ween now because it is no longer "time enough"...

  2. Please don't get mom thinking about her favorite candy ☺

  3. We had a beautiful black cat too, named Biene. She was scared of the world and never came out of her shell her entire life which was sad. Mom got her at about 6 months old, but she had been abused and never warmed up to humans. Have a great weekend.

  4. I am currently living with my grandson and his incredible black cat. He doesn't see the dogs and they don't see him.

  5. What fun it is to see both Amos and Tucker!! ♥

  6. My brother in law had Ursula a gorgeous black cat with emerald eyes. She lived to almost 18
    Amos is the best cat name I love it.

  7. Great answers. Black cats are really cool to see, especially when they have golden or green eyes.

    Mom's favorite candy is either Heath Bars or Skor bars:) And put them on some ice cream, and she is in heaven.

  8. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. Amos was a handsome boy. I love black cats, I have 4 :) Mini snickers are good, but full size are better :) Have a nice weekend! XO

  9. WE see a nice black cat hunting for mice on our property

  10. Wooftastic fill-ins!
    Black cats are furbulous & I'm not saying that just cause my feline sister Dot is staring at me right now.

  11. Black kittehs are FABulous! They usually have the coolest eyes too! Ma says she overslept today, and it did suck! ☺ Ma loves the snickers too...and the skittles...and wallymelon salt water taffy!

  12. We love Snickers too. Unfortunately my hips seems to 'like' the full size bars better. LOL

  13. Mom thinks the comics are straight-up the best part of the newspaper.

    Love and licks,

  14. Great Jack-O-Lantern shot. Have a blessed week.

  15. I didn't know you once had a black kitty. I would've like to have met Amos. Mom's favorite candy are those chewy peanut butter ones in the orange wrappers that are only in stores for Halloween. I like to nibble on wrappers, but Mom usually takes them away from me. Head pets. -Valentine (& Mom) of Noir Kitty Mews

  16. Housepanthers are terrific, but having two is FANTASTIC!

  17. Wow, that Halloween graphic is stunning! I love it. The boys look super cute dressed as the beloved Returns characters. Tucker looks so incredibly adorable, I'd love to see more flashback photos of him. I loved both of the Returns books and I highly recommend them for any pet lover!

  18. Thank you for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins! I have the exact same thoughts on oversleeping. I'm an early bird, and if I accidentally oversleep, it makes me feel stressed for the entire day. And black cats are indeed purrfect!


I'd love to hear from you! Bark back!
