Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I know it is Phoebe’s Day, but I need to list my 3 thankfuls first. I am thankful that my niece introduced my Mom and I to pedicures in 2013 and now we got every 6 weeks, I am thankful Sammy didn’t pee on the couch today, and I am thankful that Phoebe is so good at posing for photos.

And now, here’s Phoebe!

Hi everyone! You are not seeing double. Joanie is a brat so Mom went and bought another scratcher. Actually, she bought 4 more because Petco had them on clearance for $3.

I got to see my Grammie on Tuesday and Wednesday. I love her so very much, even if she doesn’t always give me treats.We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

And now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. This week we could choose from four B words, including bananas.

Bananas
Bananas are a dangerous fruit.
if you slip on the peel , it won’t be a
hoot.


My Dad likes them for a snack,
but sometimes they turn black
so Mom makes a bread with chocolate chips
Forget that I want my bananas filled with catnips.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two. Thank you to all who participate.

1. A recurring dream I have is _______________________.

2. Turn ______________ into ________________________.

3.                              is driving me crazy!

4. Lately, I have been                        .

Happy Father’s Day!

Hi everyone! Happy Father’s Day out there to all Cat Daddies. I am a lucky kitty to have one. Here is a photo from April ( Snowball is in it too- sniff).

  Dad always shares his supper with us.

Mom is interrupting my post to list her 3 things she is thankful for today.

Thanks Phoebe, sorry to interrupt. I am thankful that I had a wonderful father.Even though he passed away in 2001, I think of him every day.

I am also thankful that my hubby is such a good cat daddy and loves them as much as I do.

I am also thankful he is an excellent gardener.He has picked over 700 spears of asparagus and lots of strawberries, I even got to freeze some.

I am happy to report I accomplished more of the challenges too- I prayed, took a nap, did a random act of kindness and I even smiled at 3 people at the mall.

Now back to Phoebe-

Do you like my hat? Did you read Kali’s post on Thursday, if not, be sure to click here. We are starting a club for older female cats called The Crotchety Cougars. You just need to be a girl cat, over 15 to join. You will get a badge to display and my Mom will make you a hat like this.

Thanks to Kali’s Mom for designing this beautiful badge

  Hats ready to go to members.Madi already joined. We hope there are more of you lovely ladies out there.

I got to see Grammie on Saturday, I love her so very much.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Check out my new scratcher that Grammie bought me on Wednesday. I love her so very much. I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop because I am very thankful for my Grammie.

Mom bought me some Greenies, she got Emmy a bag too.

  I wanted party mix though, I am sick of Greenies-phooey!

And now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. We had a choice of 4 words that begin with A so I went with apples.

Apples
Some eat apples on a stick,
I wouldn’t even want a lick.
I prefer some meat,
that will get me to eat.
Dad bbq’s me some deer
that someone hunted last year.
So you can keep those apples
and even your snapples.

And now Mom wants to join the The Thursday Movie Picks Blog Hop hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves this week because she likes the theme, movies based on true events. She has chosen 3 films based on events that occurred in Massachusetts.

  1. The Fighter (2010)-A film about the boxer, “Irish” Mickey Ward. Mark Wallberg starred and Grammie and Mom were extras in the audience of one of the fight scenes. Cool huh?
  2. The Perfect Storm ( 2000)- Mark Wahlberg was also in this, but Mom isn’t hot for him like she is Nicolas Cage. It is a well done film about a storm in 1991 that caused the death of many fisherman.
  3. Black Mass (2015)- Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger, the mobster from South Boston. Mom’s friend’s grandson almost got the role of Whitey’s son, but he was a little too old. Mom helped him practice his lines for his audition.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. I challenge everyone to ________________________ this week.

2. I regret disposing of _____________________________.

3. I have a difficult time admitting                                .

4. If I were given a psychic power, I would like it to be                              .
  I gotta go, Joanie is trying to take over my new scratcher.

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! I am in a foul mood and I don’t mean that I want chicken for dinner. Mom is all over that new kitty, Emmy. I just know she is saying how wonderful she is. I am pretty much deaf now so I am not sure what she is saying exactly, but I know it is about perfect Emmy. One good thing about being deaf is not having to listen to Mom’s singing anymore.

I did get to see my Grammie Thursday and Saturday. And she is going to watch us for a while on Monday- yippee! I love her so very much.

That darn Emmy has been eating my catnip Greenies. Just because I was taking a break from that flavor doesn’t mean Mom can feed them to her. Phoooey!! And I thought Brody was a problem.

I know you were hoping to see Emmy in her new hat , but today is my day and if I have to share my Greenies, I am not going to share my day of blogging.

I am going to go pout now, but first I am joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.

And the Emmy Goes to

You read that right- it’s a girl! And the Emmy goes to me 🙂 Thank you all for crossing those paws. She is even spayed already, FELV/FIV negative and no microchip so she is all mine. Emmy travels so well, not a peep out of her and it was an hour round trip plus and hour and a half waiting for our turn.

The vet wrote down she is 10, but said she could be anywhere from 6-14. Her teeth look great, but she thought her eyes looked old. I think they are just a very unique color, I am hoping to get some photos soon. She also has a heart murmur and may be hyperthyroid so I need to take her to my regular vet. We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday because I am thankful that I get to keep Emmy.

And now I will let Phoebe take over-

Thanks Mom, I was wondering when I was going to get my turn. There were lots of guesses and 12 of you guessed correctly, no chip and a girl. So I had Mom write your names down and I had Dad pull a name out of his baseball cap. And the winner is Critters in the Cottage-Congratulations!

We are praying for two of the Critters in the Cottage, Esme and Mitalee.

I am going to see Grammie today- finally! I love her so very much. I haven’t seen her since Saturday!!!

Sammy is a conehead right now. He has a small scratch on his ear, but when he scratches and shakes his head, it looks like a crime scene. Mom said she needs to hire “The Cleaner” from the TV show, The Blacklist.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. It is a Haiku titled Zen.

Wanting for nothing
except a meal and warm bed,
cats are very zen.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two. And make sure you add your link if you do a post with the fill-ins.

1. a prop from a tv show or film I would like to own is _____________________________________.

2. My oldest friendship is _________________________________.

3. Whenever I                        , I always                            .

4. The best                    is                          .

Phoebe’s Contest

Hi everyone!

Ready for the contest? I am going to have you take a guess as to whether the new kitty is a boy or a girl. Also, does it have a microchip? I am sure many will answer both correctly so whoever does will be entered to win this catnip mat and crocheted turkey leg and baby rat.

Just answer in the comment section of today’s post. I will accept answers until Wednesday night at 9 PM ( EST). I will announce the winner in Thursday’s post.

Mom will be heartbroken if this kitty has a microchip, she is already quite attached. She has been able to brush the kitty and remove some mats. There was no fleas or flea dirt which is a miracle.

I haven’t seen Grammie since Saturday and I miss her. I love her so very much, I hope she visits soon.

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! You caught me sharpening my nails 

I saw Grammie Thursday and Saturday. I love her so very much! I even waited for her right by the door. Sadly, I have a lot of free time now. I used to spend a lot of time giving Snowball a bath.

I miss her so much.

Mom was so worried about Snowball that our 3rd Blogoversary came and went on May 23rd. It doesn’t seem like it has been so long since we got started. We are thankful for all the friends we have made these last 3 years. And I am thankful that my purrince found me too.

Thankful Thursday

HI everyone!

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. We are most thankful for all of you. We appreciate all your comforting comments you left on the loss of dear Snowball. We already showed you the beautiful badges made by Ann and Pam. We want to show you a few more.

Thank you to Lorianne for this amazing drawing of Snowball ( she even got her eyes correct).

Thank you to  Pipo and Minko

Thank you to Peaches and Paprika

And to Madi for this wonderful poem:

So sweet
Never to be forgotten
One loved kitty
White as Snow
Beautiful
Adored by her family
Lush fur
Little lady of the house

And thank you to the Trout Talkin Tabbies

St Francis said, “Come little one, there is nothing more I can do for you here, don’t be afraid”, and St Francis gently picked up Snowball  and carried her into the kingdom of heaven…..when the little cat looked around, she realized everything St Francis told her on her journey was true….heaven was beautiful beyond what mere words could express…..

Snowball saw there was no pain, suffering, fear, sickness, hunger, thirst or sorrow, until she looked down and saw the family and friends she had left behind, and for a very brief moment, the little cat too, was filled with sorrow.
then St Francis bestowed Snowball with a set of gossamer wings and said, “Use them to return to your family, when their need is the greatest, as nothing can separate your bond of love.  Hold each other in your hearts and your memories, until you are reunited again at heaven’s door.”
….. and when the little cat tried on her wings, she knew nothing was impossible…… when there is….love❤️❤️
Words can’t express how thankful we are for all of you.
And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter Y
Yarn
Yarn is lots of fun
just like napping in the sun.
You can make a hat
that will fit your cat.
You can also make toys filled with nip
they will take you on a trip.
There is no contest
yarn is the best.
And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. A law I would like to see passed is _________________________.

2. My favorite card game is ______________________.

3. With Summer unofficially here,                                   .
4. A favourite Summer memory is                                   .
PS: I love you Grammie!!! I can’t wait to see you today.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop because I am thankful I got to see Grammie on Monday and Wednesday. And look what she brought me, I mean us. I love her so very, very much.

Pardon my winky eye, Mom makes me nervous because she is always trying to put medicine on my ear so I tend to blink when she is next to me.

Turns out, Mom is definitely feeding a cat, not a skunk. It is getting braver too, I fear our family may be growing soon. Mom doesn’t know if it is a male or female, but it does watch for her to bring food then hides until she leaves.

Here is my X poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day.

X is Useless
X is a useless letter
our language could be better
I want to toss the X right out
if you agree, give me a shout
x-ray will now be spelled like this
ecksray, the letter x we will not miss
Xavier can be spelled Zavier
come celebrate with caviar!

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. My idea of roughing it is__________________________________.

2.I never get sick of talking about ______________________________.

3. My youth                              .

4. My “golden years”                               .

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! I am so mad at my Mom. She made me go to the vets on Thursday and they stole my blood again!!!! My blood pressure was good and my kidneys have not gotten worse so I guess that is good.

She is always telling Joanie, “One of these days, pow to the moon.”. Joanie is the naughtiest and she might get to go on a trip to the moon, that is not fair. I want a trip to the moon. Phooey!

Grammie was here Saturday. I love her so very much even if she didn’t give me any treats.
