Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I got to see my Grammie on Wednesday, I love her so very much.

I am thankful that when Mom brought me to the vet Tuesday, they didn’t steal my blood. I just got a B-12 injection and an anti-nausea one. Mom talked to the vet about those and being that they are safe, I can get them every 14 days. The vet checked me and I wasn’t dehydrated so I didn’t need fluids like the last time.

I am thankful for The Crotchety Cougar Club, a place where all my older  lady friends and I can complain. Please read about it on Kali’s blog. And please pray for Kali because she hasn’t been feeling well. I am thankful that we gained two more members this week ( they are not listed yet on Kali’s post, but will be added soon).

I am also joining Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter F.

Family
Some say family has to be blood
I tell them to jump in the mud
My folks and I don’t share DNA
but for my health they always pray
Brody may drive me nuts
but I love that little putz
Family are those that love you
no matter what you do

Brody and Prancie are pretty chummy

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for week 63. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. My favorite thing on my daily to-do list is ________________________.

2. My least favorite thing on my daily to-do list is ________________________

3. I could really do without                           .

4. I would love to have more                                    .

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful for cat grass.

This is the one Mom grew for me and I still have the one Grammie bought for me.I haven’t seen Grammie all week, I miss her I hope she visits me today, I love her so very much.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter E. This week I went with a haiku.

Empty
An emergency
really, this is a crisis
my bowl is empty

My Purrince had a commentathon on his birthday to raise money for a feral cat group. I wanted to send him some of my money so Mom and I sent $10. We want to help him raise more money so I got Mom to do some sewing and crocheting.

  We are having a Flash Sale ( don’t I make a cute Flash?)  For anyone that donates $10 to the feral cat group, we will send you a catnip mat and 2 crocheted catnip toys ( a turkey leg and an ice cream cone). We only have 2 of these sets available so if you are interested just say so in the comments and I will send you the paypal information to pay the $10. Sorry, we can only do this for US residents because shipping is too expensive. Thank you to anyone that can help.

This is the fabric for the mats.

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. My inner child_____________________.

2. My favorite month is ________________.

3. My favourite commercial is                       , because                                .

4. Personally, I don’t care for                                     .

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone. Before we start, I want to have a moment of silence for Gertrude of Marg’s Animals who left for The Rainbow Bridge on Monday.

I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop because I am thankful that we are finally rid of the sickness that we all had ( except Brody). And I will be seeing Grammie today, I love her so very much.

Brody wasn’t sick, but he didn’t escape a trip to the vet. He was due for a rabies vaccine. This week, Brody and I wrote a poem together for Sammy’s Poetry Day.

Damn Vet
Mom dragged me off the damn vet
I am starting to think I’m not her favorite pet
I admit I felt like crud
but those vampires shouldn’t have taken my blood
They gave me an anti-nausea shot
I guess that helped a lot
The next day Mom dragged me off too
please remind me to vomit in her shoe
I was given a rabies vaccine
by a lady whose name was not Maxine
To my lovely Leia I send a kiss
to Mom and the Damn vet a hiss!

Emmy also wanted to give writing poetry a try so she used one of the word choices, dark.

Dark
I only come out when it is dark
that is when I get my spark
When everyone else is sound asleep
I wander about not making a peep
In the morning toys scattered on the floor
to pick them all up is quite a chore
Maybe someday I will sleep at night
instead of sleeping while it is light

Do you like my shades?

Mom is participating in Wandering Through the Shelves TMP blog hop again this week, the theme is summer vacation.

  1. A Walk on the Moon ( 1999)- Set in 1969, a family goes to a Jewish summer retreat in The Catskills. Great music and incredible acting by Diane Lane, Liev Schreiber, Viggo Mortensen and a young Anna Paquin. This is one of my favorite films and it doesn’t even have Nicola Cage in it.
  2. Dirty Dancing ( 1987)- I think everyone knows of this one.
  3. Dirty Dancing (2017) – This is a remake of the original and made for tv, but it was pretty good. Abigail Breslin played Baby, I think she seemed too young for the part. The original came out when I was 18 so it could just be that I am so much older now that she seemed extra young. I did like the extra ending in this one.

And here are the fill-ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two. Please purr and pray for Annie’s beautiful cat, Chloe Jo , she has been having numerous health problems and was hospitalized for several days.

1. My favorite line from a film is __________________________.

2. Other than blogs, a website I visit often is __________________.

3. When I feel down, I                              .

4. If I could                         , I would                           .

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Grammie was here on Monday and we had some relatives over for lunch. I was the only one that got to go in the dining room to visit, that is a cat free zone. I love my Grammie so very much. I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Dad has the rows of blueberries all surrounded with fencing and netting so he thought it would be a great catio for us to go out in,but Mom said, “no cat of mine is going outside!”

She sounds just like Howard’s mother on The Big Bang Theory. Phooey!!

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, we had a choice of 4 words starting with c so I chose camera.

Annoying me with every flash
the least you could do is give me some cash.
A human with a camera is no fun
whenever I see one, I run.
If I can’t avoid this stint
at least I am going to squint.

Mom participated in this month’s 6-words post at Coach Daddy’s Blog. The question was : If you asked someone to read your fortune, what’s the best thing they could say to you? For her answer and many more, click here.

Mom also wants to join Wandering Through the Shelves this week for TMP Television edition medical dramas.

  1. ER ( 1994-2009) – This one is self explanatory. Such a great show.
  2. House ( 2004-2012)- Hugh Laurie played Dr. House, a prescription drug addicted doctor that seemed to hate people, but was an amazing doctor.
  3. Nurse Jackie (2009-2015)- Edie Falco was so incredible in this role , the complete opposite of Carmella Soprano. She played a drug addicted nurse that was excellent at her job. This one is technically listed as a comedy, but there was a lot of drama.

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. My next ___________________ will be ________________________________.

2. Fireworks__________________________.

3. Freedom                               .

4. This week, I am thankful                                         .

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                        .

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.

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                          .

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”                               .

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop because I am so thankful that Grammie kitty sat us for 4 hours on Wednesday. I love her so very much.

I am still tuckered from The Great One’s visit. She calls me  Fee, she seems to like my name. Do you remember my car that was Mom’s niece’s? If not, click here. Well, now The Great One plays with it and I think she is sending me a message- look what she put in the trunk!
  One of our toy rats.

Here is my W poem for Angel Sammy’s Poetry Day.

WHEN
Us kitties always want to know when
When is breakfast ? I am getting thin.
When can we have lunch?
I need something to munch.
When can we have a snack?
Feed me or I will give you a whack.
When are you serving supper?
Please try to hurry upper.
When can I have my bedtime treat?
I could go for a sweet.
