Sister Saturday Chatting with Macy

sister saturday macy 01 11252023

Hello everyone, it’s me Macy and it’s my turn to do Sister Saturday again. Today is just a few ends that are odd, as Angel Brian used to say. Let’s get started. Several of you have commented about that big glass jar behind me. That is our Mom’s matchbook collection. Our Mom was never a smoker but back in the day matchbooks were everywhere. Some were unique and the Mom started collecting them. Her friends would bring her back match books from their travels too. Although the Mom doesn’t collect them any more, it’s still filled with many matchbooks and lots of memories.

As you can tell, I’m quite the small girl weighing in at 7.5 pounds. I can fit just about anywhere, even on this small lamp table. I may be small but I’m mighty and can take on any of the other kitties that live here.

Here’s something you might not know about me, I have racing stripes on the back of my neck. The Dad said they help me run faster. Let me tell you, I can move pretty darn quick and I’m pretty proud of my racings stripes.

Memories of Eric and Flynn

Your racing stripes are very impressive, Macy. I remember those matchbooks and started collecting them too. I don’t know what happened to them though.

Macy I think racing stripes are a nice “accent” for your fur coat! I’m sure they help you move like lightning!!!!! Know what? Many (many) years ago my Mom says she also collected matchbooks – they were everywhere and it was fun to remember the places she’d picked them up every time she looked through her collection. They are long gone but the memories are still there!

Hugs, Teddy

Quite lovely of you to give us a mixed post today Macy. We love your stripes and is being a tiny girl sometimes maybe you do have to run faster than everybody else. And all humans like to have wonderful memories and that’s what your food mom has in that jar.

Kiki, my mom had thought there were matchbooks in there. She has a few- and now wishes she had collected a lot of them for the same reason your Mom did. Hey..I admire your racing stripes! I wish I had some. Might help me race around faster like I used to.

And Macy way back when the matchbooks were designed with interesting logs and colors.
I love that little curl at the tip of your whiskers. OMCs that is a very unique racing strip and it has an itty bitty tip of gray fur too

Mornin’, pretty girl – You are a little bitty lady just like my Lucy was. She was a gray tabby I brought home from the shelter when she was about 2 years old, 6 pounds of pure sweetness. She had been at the shelter the longest and I think she was waiting for me. She now lives on in my heart.

A matchbook collection is cool, and helpful when the lights go out.


Petcretary has a few matchbooks, but for many years she was collecting the soap bars that came from motels! Go figure!

Macy, you are gorgeous, sweet and yes FAST!

You’re such a pretty girl, Macy. My mom collected match books too…can’t really find them anymore these days. She has a bucket filled with them…mostly from restaurants and places that aren’t there anymore. ~Ernie

Thanks for the chat, Macy, and the ends which are not odd at all in my book.
