Happy and soup day

Here is our rescue kitty! Tom and I were talking about when she came, at dinner tonight. Tom thinks it was the first or second Saturday of January 98. So in just a few weeks she will have been with us for 12 years. When she came she seemed so happy that we thought that Happy
would be a good name for her! Happy is a 2 A. M. eater. Even if you make her go without
food she will not eat at dinner time, she refuses to eat, than you do not feed her at 2 am and feed her her breakfast, than feed her at dinner time. Happy will still get you up at 2 am and no matter what, you can't brake her from that habit. I have tried for 11 years and 11 months.
We love Happy very much! No matter, even at 2 am.
Soup day.....

Usually every Monday is the time I make a big pot of home made soup. It is almost always
vegetarian, and always has a tomato base broth. I use a lot of fresh vegetables, what ever I have on hand and frozen and even some can beans will go into the soup. I make a very big pot of all those vegetables and seasoning. We use this soup as a base than add other things microwave
and you have a great meal in minutes. The other things are always protein, cheese, chicken,
soy sausage, shrimp, ect. You get the picture. That soup stays in the refrigerator for 7 days if it last that long. Usually it does not last that long. Than we cook dinner. I say we because Tom
always helps in the kitchen. It is a pleasure to fix a meal when you have short cuts and a helper.
I hope I have given you ideas in my post. You now know a little more about me and the way we eat. Come back soon.
Love ya, Happy, Bambi, and Mom (Fern)


  1. Getting up at 2AM every day is tough! Happy is a very pretty kitty!
    Our mom and dad both love to make soup too!

    Love ya lots

  2. Happy seems to have you very well trained. I could use some pointers on how to train my momma better.


  3. We are hoping you put Happy's dindin out before you go to bed. Mom stops getting up at 2:00 am as soon as she can get us trained to stay in our crates all night. So we go to bed when she does and we sleep until after Dad goes to work, then Mom walks us or lets us go play out in our pen.

    Soup sounds good. We might try some tonight.

  4. Hi Fern,
    Happy is a beautiful kitty and lucky!!!
    I love soup days!!! Here is what I do.
    I keep a big container in the freezer. Anytime we have left over veggies or things like roast beef or swiss steak it goes in the container. When that is full it is time for a pot of soup.
    Of course it isn't vegetarian but it is good.

  5. 2 am feeding, WOW! Your good!
    Lucky for me, all my pets are sound sleepers!
    I love soup! Maybe I will make soup for dinner tonight!! Good idea!

  6. Happy is such a perfect name for your kittie. And it makes us happy to think of her name!

    Moma wouldn't let us read the part that talked about 2:00 AM. Something about not wanting to give us any ideas.

    She DID let us read about the soup, though. We LOVE soup making days, because we love our veggies! Carrots are the best!

    You are a very resourceful lady. With good ideas. Thank you!
    Jake and Fergi xxoo

  7. Happy sure does look happy!! perfect name. There is NO way mom would feed me at 2 am, I would starve. She would set it out for me.

    Soup sounds good, my mom makes chili more often than soup.
