Friendly Fill-In: Week 6

Welcome to "Friendly Fill-Ins"! Each Thursday we post four statements with blanks for you to fill in. The first two fill-ins are provided by my co-host, Ellen of The final two statements are offered by myself. On Friday, we post a link so we can all share the completed fill-ins. Please remember to visit everyone on the list! Thanks!

Here are my completed statements:

1. The best brand of pet food is prescribed by a veterinarian for that particular animal. Never go by what is trending, what someone recommends, or what you read; always talk to your vet before making any health decision. No matter what life stage or health status, a vet should always be involved in a pet’s needs.

2. I refuse to buy any major purchase unless there is a sale or a coupon. We tend to be very practical. We like to do our research and plan major purchases, which includes looking for the best value and price.

3. I am inspired by each and every little orphaned critter I bottle feed. Their will is amazing. Against all odds, they fight to survive. I am inspired to make sure that they not only make it, but thrive and find their forever home.


4. Whenever I see any critter that has been killed on the road, I make the sign of the cross in prayer. I believe that God cares about each little life and about the loss of each one. And, I know that I do.

~Make it a great weekend.
Spread some Peace!~

Now, it's your turn. Please link up with us here! Or, you can answer in the comments


  1. What wonderful answers!

    There really is something so special and inspiring about bottle-fed furbabies. My little ladycat Thimble and her three brothers were bottle-fed by my family and I, and that is something I will always treasure. Thimble was the runt and we came very close to losing her, but she was a fighter and is now my sassy and ornery little lady.

    Thank you for hosting this fun challenge!

  2. I enjoyed your post, especially the adorable kitty pics. So sweet!

    I agree 100% with your answer to #4. The Bible talks about spreading the word to all creatures. David and I take this verse quite literally. We believe that animals will be in Heaven, too. I just can't imagine it being Heaven without our furbabies there, too.

    We research for major purchases, too. When we knew we were going to need a new car, I researched each brand of car in the size that we were considering. We were becoming empty-nesters, so we didn't need a huge SUV or van (on most days). A little car would do. In the end, the Ford Fiesta won out. It is a brand we trust, the price was decent, and it is a cool little car. It is perfect for the two of us and the gas mileage is great! Most of our driving is in town, but it still gets over 35 mpg. We see others fill their tanks for over $100. We can fill ours up for less than $20 most of the time. It is worth the time and effort it takes to research before you buy, especially on big-ticket items.

    Have a blessed day!

  3. Cute pictures of kitties. We always feel sad whenever we see a critter on the side of the road. Our house appears to be the cat Kool-Aid house or kitty birthing center. We have funerals for any of the cats that die here. It is interesting that often the other cats will come and sit silently near the grave while we are conducting the funeral.

  4. Another great post and I always love your answers. I rarely buy anything that's not on sale or has a rebate or coupon.

    Seeing the critters on the side of the road makes me cringe. It makes me wish I could take in all the strays with no homes.

  5. I am inspired by you bottle feeding babies!
    I played this week at 15andMeowing... :)
    I am so sad to see critters on the road, especially cats. They all deserve so much more than that kind of end. If they are on the road near our home CH removes and buries them.

  6. Love kitties and all their wisdom!

  7. I Love your answers, I always do. I have never bottle fed, but I am sure it is rewarding. My friend is trying to save baby bunnies, her landlord's dog killed the mama. She only has one left that lived, I am praying it makes it.
    I agree with you on pet food- and purchases.
    And how kind of you to give a moment to any animal dead in the road. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. XO

  8. Always so thoughtful, Annie. I like your making the sign of the cross when you see a dead animal. There is always at least one when we go biking. I am going to adopt that. The memes you used were purrfection. The forebr frendz kitten (like all kittens) is so precious. Thanks for hosting. Love and hugs, Janet

  9. Those were all great answers, but #3 made my heart smile.

  10. Your deep love and compassion for God's creatures shines through your answers to 1,3 and 4. I absolutely agree that God cares for each living thing He created, and it is our job to also care for them the very best we can. So many little critters owe their lives to you, and that makes me smile! I also totally agree with you on #2, large purchases are not the time for impulse buying! I love how the Internet gives us the ability to compare the value and performance of things, name brands are not always a sure bet! Great set of questions, happy Fill-Ins day! :-)

  11. Love your answers - particularly #3.

  13. We're always very sad when we see any dead animal at the side of the road.

  14. You are right, He knows and cares about the fate of every creature.

  15. Good advice. I have never even asked my vet. I probably should! I go to the pet store and get Nutra for Seniors...not sure if that's what she'd recommend or not.

  16. I enjoyed your fill in answers. I always hate seeing dead animals in the road. I usually say or think to myself "rest in peace" when I see one. ~Island Cat Mom

  17. Yes, I agree with all of your answers! Seeking the right nutrition for your furry, or not so furry friend is a hard thing to do. I am having struggles with mine. But i hope to figure it out one day!

    : )

  18. Your answers are so thoughtful, McGuffy Ann. We, too, get sad and upset when we see dead animals in the road. You are right, God cares about each and every creature.

  19. Your fill-ins show that your heart is so big and filled with love and goodness. If there were more people like you the world wouldn't ever be scary. Blessings, Annie.
