Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone. We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Mom is thankful that The Great One’s baby sister arrived a week ago. We will refer to her on the blog as The New One.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo.

Years ago, before I lived in this house,
I went into the woods to find a mouse.
I came to a stop
when I spotted a mushroom top.
I was so hungry I almost took a bite
until something blue gave me a fright.
It yelled, “get away from my home”
it was not a gnome.
I apologized and got out of his turf
and now I am friends with a smurf.
When Mom was a kid, she collected these little blue creatures, so she still has a few left.
Mom also wants me to let everyone who donated to Buttons’ surgery to know she is working on those crocheted toys to send you. In case you missed her post, she will send anyone in the USA crocheted catnip toys that donates $15 to Buttons’ surgery. We know that money is tight so please share and pray. Click here.
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

Wednesday’s ROAR

Happy Wednesday everyone. I was going to do a Wordless Wednesday post until I saw something that needed a ROAR. I am sure many of you are familiar with Kiril, the cat Daddy over at The Opinionated Pussycat. He also used to organize The Carnival of Cats for The Cat Blogosphere. I knew he had some health problems, but I never knew the extent of them. Despite being on a limited income and having health problems, he adopted another kitty recently that he found on his way to work.

His sister set up a Go Fund Me page for him and I plan to donate next week .  In case you are looking for a cause to donate to at this special time of year, here is the link : https://www.gofundme.com/zc735qfw

Reading his story makes me especially thankful for my health.

Time to go make some pies for Thanksgiving and some oatmeal white chocolate cranberry bars ( for energy on Black Friday).

Phoebe will see you tomorrow.

001I caught her having a meeting-  probably plotting how to get to the turkey.

Double ROAR

Happy Wednesday everyone! I have a double ROAR today. First off is Bootsie and I am sure most of you have already done your part, but I thought I would spread the word some more. In addition to the You Caring Fund: https://www.youcaring.com/bootsie-s-surgery-fund-404486/donate?utm_source=widget#pp there is also an auction- and the item I donated has no bids 🙁  There are some other items without bids too so please check it out: http://earsforbootsie.blogspot.co.nz/ Auction+for+BOOTSIE

Last I read, he was still in need of a foster home – living in a storm drain is never good, especially when you are already sick.

I also want to let you know about another fund to help a blind cat named Nala. I saw on the website that there is a gofund me for her called Nala’s eye surgery, https://twoblindcatsandcrew.wordpress.com/   I wanted to donate, but I can’t find that page so I will have to wait for more information- I will keep you posted.

Even if you can’t donate, prayers are always good and purrs too. Make sure you comment for a chance to win some catnip toys ( I still need to make them) and this catnip mat made special for The Perseid’s Meteor shower tonight. It looks like it is going to be clear so I guess I better have lots of coffee to be awake from 1-3 AM. 015Snowball is modeling with it016Phoebe will announce the winner tomorrow.
