Mom Has Gone Batty

Hi everyone!My Mom has completely lost it this time. 100_9682 You know how I told you she cut up a book, well now it is up to 7 book fatalities. Is there some kind of book police I can call? She claims to be making something, but she must be stopped before any more books are destroyed.


I haven’t seen my Grammie all week- phooey!!! I love her so very much.

Today is my friend Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter R:

I don’t like to complain
but, I hate the rain.
I always hide in the bed
I’ll even miss getting fed.
I won’t come out until it stops
until I am sure there are no more drops.


The word for #JHC is bat so my photo above is our submission.

Mom asked me to give you the fill-ins, she came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

My fill-ins:
1. It is good to have a spare __________________________.
2. I don’t understand why ____________________ is/are so popular.
3. The spookiest thing that ever happened to me was                                      .

4. My favourite Halloween tale is                                           .

Mom has 2 carriers out again, but I know I am safe because I just went to the vet last week.

#JHC Day 5 and Poetry

Hi everyone! 100_9624 Mary M was the only one who noticed I had a bandage on in this photo yesterday. That other carrier was for me-phooey! I had to have blood stolen to test my thyroid again ( we get results later today). At least it was a pretty pink with glitters.

My Dad got me a big container of treats, he is so sweet. He even said I didn’t have to share, but mean Mom said I do have to share. I saw Grammie on Wednesday, I love her so very much. And I will see her again today too.

Today is Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter Q. I have written a haiku about the talented kitty artist Quint.

Keep your Picasso
your Renoir and Van Gogh too!
We prefer a “Quint”


Last year, someone surprised us with a Quint painting and we finally have the perfect frame for it. Noel is posing with it.


Today’s word for the #JHC is candy and Mom’s favorite snack this time of year is orange kit kats. Here is Prancie, our orange kit kat posing with one.dscf2618

They are actually white chocolate and only available at Target.


And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow, Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

Ode to Nicolas Cage

dscf2476 Hi everyone! I am having a bad week. You know how Mom took Noel to the vet, but I hid my card so I wouldn’t have to go? Turns out the rotten sneaky veterinarian sends email reminders too. I had to go with them and they stole some of my blood. I have lost a pound in 6 months, I am a svelte 7.15 pounds. My thyroid is hyper so I need to take medicine for it like Millie and Polar Bear- good luck getting me to do that.

Grammie felt bad for me so she bought me my very own bag small bag of party mix that I don’t have to share. I love my Grammie so very much.

Today is Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter N so I thought I would write a poem about Mom’s favorite actor.

Mom’s favorite actor is Nicolas Cage
She has liked him since she was 17 years of age.
All his movies she has seen
they lift her up like caffeine
Nic has been in a lot of flops
he has even played a few cops.
To meet him is the only thing on her bucket list
she just wants a photo. not a tryst.


And the winner of my piorate giveaway is Laila and Minchie– congratulations! I can’t wait to see you both dressed as pirates.


And for P.S. Annie’s 19-Somethin’ Challenge, the question is: Did you get into MTV? If not, what was your favorite music-based tv program? My Mom watched MTV from the start and she loved Solid Gold too. She used to want to be a Solid Gold dancer- MOL!

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow, we hope you will all join. Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

1. Something healthy I do daily is ________________________.
2, Something unhealthy I do daily is ____________________________.
3. This Summer,                                         .

4. This Autumn,                                          .


Grumpy Phoebe

Hi everyone! I am in a mood.DSCF2449

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter M. Mine is a haiku titled MAD.

I am Mad at Mom

She told Grammie no more treats

until Halloween!!!!!

Can you believe that? She said we need to ration these to last until then- PHOOEY!!!! I haven’t seen Grammie since Sunday and now she is going to be busy with ” The Great One” so I don’t get to see her until Saturday. I love her so very much too!


Plus I caught Snowball and Prancie having a meeting with suck-up Brody.

Mom wrote about him this month too for The Daily Mews: Click here

Today’s question for P.S. Annie’s 19-Somethin’ Challenge is, what celebrity death upset you the most? Mom says she remembers Elvis died when she was 8, but she wasn’t really upset about it.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow, Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

1. I can’t wait for the new season of ___________________________ on television.
2. In my home, ____________________needs to be repaired.
I thought I lost ________, but ______.

Phoebe’s Poem and Much More

Hi everyone! This has been an exciting week. I got to see my Grammie Monday night and Wednesday. I love her so very much.

My friend Toby saw my post on Sunday and decided to give me a gold medal on my bathing even though I was past the deadline- isn’t he sweet?


I have also joined my friend Nellie on Smoke and Joe’s campaign, I am the speech writer. Phobe_15andMeowingThis is my official ID.

And now for my friend Sammy’s Poetry Day with the letter K:


Simple as a purr

to show someone you care

do something today



Someone ( who wants to remain Anonymouse) sent mom a gift card for The Tiniest Tiger and she was able to get these 2 beautiful purses. Mom was very touched that someone was so thoughtful. I know fashion and these are nice bags, they have cute little metal cat paws on the bottom and the black one has lace paw prints all around the top.

For P.S. Annie’s Throwback Thursday I have a photo from 2010, Joanie with Ricky the rabbit:

joaniebunnyShe had bunny ears on and was pretending to be a bunny too. Ricky rabbit lived to be 13 years old which is a very long time for a bunny. Throwback Thursday

And one more thing—the fill-ins for tomorrow, you know the drill. Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2:

1. I wish ________________ would bring back ____________________.

2. An act of kindness that I do often is __________________________.

3.  I still have                           from my childhood

 4.  If I didn’t have___________________ , I’d be completely lost.
