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                       .

Hi everyone! Before I get started, I want to have a moment of silence for our friend Esme, who left for The Rainbow Bridge last week. Please visit her family if you haven’t already. Click here..

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.

3.Jersey Boys (2014)- The story of Frankie Vali and The Four Seasons.

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

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.

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.

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                           .

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                                     .

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                                         .
