Super Bowls


Bowl Story #1: On Saturday this weekend, I was out thrift shopping, and I scored some bowls that I figure will be purr-fect for Patty O'Malley and Sweetie.  Every so often, a bowl gets cracked or chipped, so more are needed.


You may not be able to tell, but this two bowls
are the faintest of blue.
However, I hit the mother lode when my friend and I found an entire set of bowls and small dishes; she wanted the dishes, and I took the bowls.  Eight bowls in all!

Not the prettiest pattern, but hey, they were cheap!

So now I have ten...count 'em...10 bowls to add to our collection for The 'O' Cats.  If Patty pushes one off the edge onto the bricks (he does that at least twice a year), or if the dish-washer breaks one (The Hubby does that about twice a year), we have many more to use.

Bowl Story #2: Couldn't help but notice that Angel's favorite day-time napping spot looks like a big, soft bowl. There is a cat bed under that fleecy cover, so she snuggles down and snoozes.  Angel has her own style of bowl game.

Bowl Story #3: Oh yeah, there was some sort of fancy U.S. football game yesterday evening.  I enjoyed the Kitten Bowl that ran on the Hallmark Channel, and The Puppy Bowl (with Chicago Acro-Cats & Rock Cats Half-Time Show) on Animal Planet. The Hubby and I also play a little game, as if we were betting money on what the end-of-quarter numbers would be, and besides our own names, we fill in Chucky, Angel, Patty O'Malley and Sweetie.  This year, Patty won 1st Quarter, The Hubby got both 2nd and 4th Quarters, I nabbed the 3rd Quarter, but Angel won for the final score.

A fantastic Bowl weekend around here...how 'bout you?

  1. hmmmm - mom says she never thought to try to buy bowls at a thrift shop - MUCH cheaper than cat dishes at the pet store

  4. Quite the super bowl weekend at your place ;)
    We also like thrift store bowls and mum likes bowls that are not flat on the bottom . Those kind are often sold at pet stores ;
    Rounded bottom bowls(like yours) are easier for us to eat all the goodness in them :)

  6. We think you were the high scorer with those bowls!

    We spent yesterday in cautious peace after our fretful week last week. (Or Mom's, anyway.)

  8. You coulda used the BOWLS as the prizes! Ha ha ha meow! Do you know what? My Human feeds me my wet fudz on her nice little appetizer plates she uses for her guests--she figures what they don't know won't hurt them and c'mon, it's not like my fuds is *poisonous* or anything. She washes the plates! No harm, no foul, right???
