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**

E is for Egg

Hi everyone! I have had a rough week, Mom dragged me off to the VET so they could steal my blood. Snowball came to for her rabies shot too. I will admit that I wasn’t my normal sweet self, I hissed and growled. Apparently the wet whillies Mom gives me are working so I don’t need to go back to the thyroid pills.

I haven’t seen my Grammie since Monday. I love her so very much, I hope I get to see her soon. We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, I  am thankful for all of you. Mom said I can even do an Easter giveaway.

This catnip mat and 2 Easter eggs are the prize. Mom also made another egg for the A-Z challenge too. Just comment on today’s post, feel free to tell me how pretty I am. I will announce the winner on Sunday.

Sammy did so well with his poem last week that I let him do this week’s poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day too.

QUEST
At Cat Scouts I went on a quest
it was harder than a test.
We had to read a map
and walk a long ways without a nap.

The Nanny

Hi everyone! I am mad at my Mom!

 

She gave me a wet willie, you know when someone sticks a wet finger in your ear. She said it was thyroid medicine so I don’t have to take pills, but it sure felt funny.

Grammie is coming to see my today. I love her so very much and I haven’t seen her since Saturday so I am very thankful she will be here today.

And now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter N.

The Nanny
In the 90’s Mom watched The Nanny
about a girl out on her fanny.
Mom liked it so much , she got this


her voice sounds worse than a hiss.

I think my Mom is crazy
and sometimes a bit lazy.
