Friendly Fill-Ins Blog Hop

Happy Friday! We’re participating in the Friendly Fill-Ins Blog Hop, presented by 15 and Meowing and McGuffy’s Reader

1. The best brand of ____________ is _______________.

2. I refuse to buy _______________________ unless there is a sale or a coupon.

3. I am inspired by _________________.

4. Whenever _________________, I __________________.

This is Waddles and me years ago. Waddles was the first cat I adopted. Then my allergist
said I was allergic to cats and needed to find her another home. I refused. I had promised
her I would be her forever home, and I kept that promise. Besides, I'm allergic to a lot of things. I deal with it. Waddles was 9 years old when I adopted her. She lived to be 21.

1. The best brand of allergy medicine for me is Zyrtec. (It works well on my itchy, sneezy symptoms and doesn’t make me drowsy.)

2. I refuse to buy name brand allergy medicine unless there is a sale or a coupon. (It’s expensive!)

3. I am inspired by people who do what they love and help other people and animals at the same time

4. Whenever a person or animal around me sneezes, I say “Bless you.”

As you can probably guess from the trend in my answers, my allergies and asthma have kicked up this week.

Have a great weekend, everyone!


  1. I didn't know we were so much alike! I take Zyrtec every day, and only buy generic medicine unless I'm getting a deal otherwise. I am in the same boat with you on #3 and #4 as well! And, my allergies and asthma have also been acting up lately.

    What's more, your Waddles was adorable. My first kitty lived to 21 years as well, and just passed away last year.


  2. Waddles was a very lucky cat, to have you for her human!

    1. And I hope your allergies get better...or know what I mean!

  5. LOL - I'm on Zyrtec year-round. I'm a mess without it. Love that it's 24 hours; that really simplifies things.

  6. Paws up to you for not letting your allergies stand in the way of loving cats.

  7. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins. I love your answers, I am having a lot of allergies now too and find the Allegra pretty good. I agree that allergy meds are pricey. I hope you feel better soon. I bless my cats too when they sneeze :)

  8. Me again. I am glad you kept Waddles despite allergies. She was a beautiful girl.

  9. Oh no, hope those allergies go away soon!

  10. How wonderful that you kept your commitment to Waddles!

  11. Waddles was such a beautiful kitty! Thank you for persevering. :)

    I'm allergic to cats, too. But yet I volunteer at the shelter every week. Go figure. :D

    The generic Flonase works wonders for me. And exposure to the cats, too.
