Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Mom said I could write a post today to give an update. Plus I am thankful to still be here so I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Mom and I are also thankful for all the purrs and prayers and words of encouragement  and advice you have all left. You are giving us strength. Mom says she will try to visit some blogs today, but I am a high maintenance kitty right now. We will blog sporadically for now.

I have stage 4 kidney disease (not sure how I skipped stage 3). My smother and dad are feeding me with a syringe. They have been doing it every few hours for over 24 hours and I haven’t yacked yet. They are hoping I will eat again on my own soon. We are waiting for a compounding pharmacy to mail my phosphorous binder. Have any of you ever tried that? Mom paid extra for overnight delivery, but they took 2 days to get it ready to ship- phooey! I also get fluids at home every other day.

I was strong enough to make both of my folks bleed yesterday. I chomped mom’s finger when she gave me a pill and I scratched dad when he was holding me to be fed.

I have been still going out twice a day. And Grammie came to see me- I love her so very much! She gave my $5 because I don’t want treats right now.

I think I look pretty darn good for being so sick.

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, just a haiku.

Out
I love to go out
fresh wind on my pretty face
warm sun on my back

I love you all and hope to see you soon! One more thing, here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for Friday. Not sure if we will do them, but Annie at McGuffy’s Reader will. Mom came up with the first two and Annie came up with the second two. Mom will definitely read everyone’s posts too.

1. I would never be friends with someone who _____________________________.

2. I will never refuse _____________________________.

3. I have never been to _______________________ , but                              .

4. When it comes to   _________________    , I                              .

 

National Coloring Day

Hi everyone! Lots going on today. First off, I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that I got to spend quality time with Grammie on Monday. I love her so very much.

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. I used all 4 word prompts.

Letter to Santa
Santa you don’t need to send an elf
I will tell you who has been naughty
that elf can sit on someone else’s shelf
Sammy and Penny have issues with the potty
Really, I am the only one that’s nice
the only normal one too
None of my siblings deserve new toy mice
or any gift from you
Sammy, Brody and Emmy like to fight
I could use a new harness dress
size small, I am very light
make it pretty, I have a purrince to impress
PS: Don’t use the chimney
it leads to the furnace
I will leave you a key
so you don’t burn your jolly a**

Today is National Coloring Day so I thought I would have a giveaway to celebrate.

Just leave a comment on today’s post for a chance to win this coloring book for your human and I will be sure mom makes some crocheted toys for you too. I will announce the winner on Sunday. Feel free to tell me how beautiful I am, you would think I would get sick of hearing that, but I never do.

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 have broken __________________ bones.

2. When I go out to breakfast, I order___________________________.
3. As Summer officially comes to an end,                                  .

4. Before this year is over, I really need to                                 .

 

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I have had a great week. I got to see my Grammie. I love her so very much. And I got a letter in the mail from my purrince with a photo of him cuddled up to a photo of me. I am such a lucky girl.

My mom actually bought me some treats. And look-we found a 4-leaf clover. Mom thinks she found it, but I led her right to it. Don’t worry, I didn’t eat it- she put it in her checkbook, she said that needs all the luck it can get- MOL!


Poor Daddy, he was carrying me across the street and a neighbor drove by and beeped and was laughing at him. What is so funny about a man carrying a pretty kitty in a pink dress?

This week for Sammy’s Poetry Day, I decided to choose my own M word. I chose my fellow Crotchety Cougar, Madi to write about.

Madi
Madi is everyone’s friend
on her, you can always depend
Her favorite color is red,
she loves to nap on the bed.
Madi is also a Cat Scout
she would never pout
She doesn’t have a single quirk
and boy that girl can twerk!

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


1. September bucket list: 1. _________________ 2. ________________…………..………………..

2. If I came with a warning label, it would say ___________________________________________.

3. Truth be told,                         .

4. I would rather                      than                           .

 

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that I have been getting to go for two walks a day with my folks.

Shhh! Don’t tell the farmer I got on his equipment. I knew I could smell hay.

I am quite the adventure cat. I don’t know why everyone stares when they ride by and see my folks walking me on our own property.

Grammie picked up my medicine at the vet today- thanks Grammie. I love you so very much. I still take my anti-nausea meds so I won’t lose my appetite.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter L- I used all 4 words just like Madi does.

I will never be a lap cat
but sometimes I will wear a hat.
I like beef and turkey, but not lamb
I sure hope I get a visit from my Gram(mie)
I have a hunch
mom and Grammie are going to lunch
I hope they get me a new harness
after Labor day I can’t wear a pink dress

And the winner is Crystal’s Photo Blogging Site. Her adorable kitty will enjoy the mat.

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 favorite fictional character is ______________________-.

2.  A new tv show or film I am looking forward to this Fall is ____________________.

3. One of my very favourite books is                       .

4. The best time to                        is                        .

I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful to feel better this week and I am thankful for all your purrs and prayers.

I haven’t seen Grammie since last Wednesday. I hope she comes to see me soon, I love her so very much.

How cute do I look in my harness? Here I am looking for a four leaf clover.

Joanie wants us to call her Dr. Joanie because she took her own stitches out. Her recheck was good though and she is all healed.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. I used all 4 of the K word prompts this week.

My purrince is really my king
this is not just some fling
Our love is true
without him I ‘d be blue
The only boy with a key to my heart
it was true love right from the start
He makes my heart kindle
may our fire never dwindle

 

Mom wants to join Wandering Through The Shelves Thursday Movie Picks Blog Hop this week because the theme is the stage.

Here’s my list- all musicals, I can’t sing, but I love musicals.

1. Grease (1978)- I had such a crush on John Travolta ( yes, someone before Nic Cage) when I was a kid, my parents took me to see this. Every time I hear a song from it, I want to burst into song ( but I only do when alone, I don’t want to hurt anyone’s eardrums 🙂 ).

2. Annie ( 1982)- There have been other versions since, but I think this is the best.

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter J.

JERK
My brother Sammy has a quirk
he is a bit of a jerk
One night he sleeps on mom’s head
the next, he poops on the bed
He thinks he is a cool dude
and steals everyone’s food
You may think he is a perfect Cat Scout
but at home he is bad without a doubt.

  Now Brody move! You are on my new favorite spot.

I am also thankful that we were nominated by Crystal’s Site for a Lovely Blog Award. We already have this, but I still appreciate the thought-thank you!

What fresh hell is this? Mom is already buying Halloween costumes. Phoeey!!! I am not wearing this octopus. I want to at least have something pretty.

Now here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter I. I didn’t use one of the word prompts though.

IRON
Mom and Grammie are a lot alike
neither ever ride a bike.
Both have black hair
and like to swear, I mean share.
Neither has a claim to fame,
but they have one thing that is not the same.
Grammie would never leave her house
if there was a wrinkle in her blouse.
Mom uses her iron, never
She has had the same one forever
Grammie needs a new one every year
Now mom is mad at me, I fear

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.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Mom has been getting up on the wrong side of the bed all week. Sammy stretches out on the side and she can’t get past him so she has to get out on Dad’s side when he gets up.

I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am most thankful that I got to spend time with Grammie on Monday and I saw her on Wednesday too. Grammie gave me treats 3 times on Monday, everyone else only got them twice. And she gave me some drinks from the bathroom sink. I love my Grammie so very much!

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, I thought I would be an over-achiever like Madi and use all 4 of the H word choices.

I don’t like to be sappy
but my heart is happy
I have a great home
we even have a pet gnome


I just have one complaint
I never claimed to be a saint
Mom likes to crochet hats
and puts them on us cats
I am going to lobby
for mom to get a new hobby

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


1. Meetings __________________.

2. Rules __________________.

3. The best time to                        is                         .

4. I have learned                                     .

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop and Sammy’s Poetry Day and #PMT photohunt @tonkstail.

I am thankful that I don’t have a vet appointment this week. And I am thankful that Mom is saving the squeezable treats for me because she wants me to gain weight.I haven’t seen Grammie since Saturday though.  I love her so very much, I wrote a poem for her today.

Grammie
Things here are bleak
I haven’t seen Grammie all week!
Could she be mad at me?
Maybe she thinks I have a flea
I hope she visits me soon
like today before noon
Grammie, you are the best
visit soon or I’ll be depressed!

 

Mom usually joins the #PMT Photohunt, but this week I am. Mom repainted the scarecrow because it was weathered, she even coated it with a clear coating for protection and she didn’t notice that she forgot something. I call this photo  “Mom’s not too sharp”.

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


1. As a child, my favorite playground activity was _______________________.

2. For breakfast, I have ___________________.

3. An instrument I would like to play is                        .

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                                    .
