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                           .

 

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! Check out all this hay! I forgot how much I love hay. I used to steal it from the rabbits when we had them.

Mom locked Dad out of the house at 11 PM the other night. No, they weren’t fighting, mom just isn’t too bright. Dad had gone out to get a breath of air and bring the flag inside, but mom thought he was in the bathroom. She went in the kitchen and noticed the porch light on and the door unlocked and thought he had forgotten them so she shut the light off and locked up. Then the doorbell rang and she got scared wondering who would be at the door at that hour-MOL!

She was supposed to be decluttering today, but she ended up at a tag sale. She was all proud that she got a telescope for Dad for $3 until she got it home and he pointed out that it was missing an eyepiece. I really think I should write a book about all the stupid things she does.

I got to see Grammie on Thursday, I love her so very much. She got to see me walking on my harness.

Millie and Penny want to do selfies today so here they are:

We are joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop and The Pet Blogger Showcase.

 

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! I finally got to see Grammie on Friday and Saturday!! I love her so very much. And look what she brought us (me) , these have gravy inside of them-yum, yum!

Brody wanted to do a selfie and give a shout out to his sweet Leia.

My purrince wrote me another poem, I am so lucky.

**KISS**

Wakin uppy frum such a dreem

So mee can dreem of you an yur *kiss*

bye Siddhartha Henry =^,.^

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! Thank you all for your kind words and purrs and prayers for my health. I am trying my best to be healthy. Mom thanks you all for the tips and product suggestions.

I scared the BeeGees out of my folks Saturday and  they schlepped me off to the vet. I was running back and forth to different litter boxes and meowing and trying to hide. The vet says mirtazapine wouldn’t cause that, but some of my friends that use it have acted funny too.

My folks keep begging me to eat. Dad brought a moth in for me to play with and I caught it-then he took it away- phooey! He thought it would upset my tummy. That I would have eaten.

My Grammie has a bad cold so I haven’t seen her since Wednesday. I love her so very much, I hope she comes to see me soon.

My purrince wrote me a fun poem:

Silly poe-em fur Phoebe
“While thee weather outside iss pawfull,
thee A/C iss so-o deelitefull…
An since wee have no place to go…..
let it snow, let it sn…oh wait it’ss not Winter…
An since wee have no place to go,
let thee A/C blow; let it blow!!!”

I want to thank PetFaves blog for featuring me on their Pet Blogger’s Showcase.

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.

PS: Here are the fill-ins for Friday. Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

Selfie Sunday and Thanks to Chewy

Hi everyone! Mom had a lot of fun at IKEA yesterday. She bought some curtains with black cats on them. And a weasel for her great-niece, I mean an easel.

Would you believe these were her main reason for wanting to go? They are children’s toys, but she buys them for us. They no longer are listed in the catalog or online so she was thrilled to find them. She bought 9 mice and 2 rats. She said some are for giveaways and I can give one away today. If you want to be entered for a chance to win, tell me in the comment section which color you will choose if you win, they come in white, gray and brown. I will announce the winner on Tuesday.

Remember my lemonade stand that I made with a CHEWY box?(click here)

Joanie was worried that we didn’t have lemonade and I told her it didn’t matter, we would still get stuff for having a lemonade stand. I was right! Look what Chewy sent us because they liked my stand.

Of course, I do all the work and Sammy tried to take the prize. We got 2 packages of treats, lots of catnip toys , including a mouse and a carrot, a wand toy, a burlap bag, a bandana and a magnet for mom’s car. Mom thinks the bag is for her, but I have claimed it as a nice spot to snooze on. Thank you Chewy!!!

I haven’t seen my Grammie since Wednesday, I hope she visits soon. I love her so very much.

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that I got to see Grammie on Wednesday. I love her so very much.

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.

1. Blind dates _______________.
2. _______________years ago, I _______________________.

3. I admire                         because                             .

4.                         makes me think                              .

 

 

 

Sharknado Selfies

Hi everyone! I am mad at my Mom, she dragged me off to the vet again for another B-12 shot and anti-nausea shot. The tech messed up and got the vitamin B all over me the first try- phooey!

I did get to see Grammie on Saturday. I love her so very much.

And my sweet purrince wrote me a poem. Here it is:

“HEART”
“You live inn mee heart,
Mee heart beelongss to you deer,
Our heartss beet as one.”

I am so lucky to have such a sweet boyfriend. He is handsome too. If you haven’t seen his blog yet, click here

Tonight on SyFy is Sharknado 5. My Dad likes to watch crap, I mean interesting movies like that. Mom found this shark fabric so I thought I would do a giveaway for a catnip mat. Just leave a comment today, feel free to tell me how beautiful I am. I will announce the winner on Tuesday’s post. I will have Mom crochet some fishies to feed the sharks too.

I am joining The Cat on my Head Sunday Selfies Blog Hop and The Pet Blogger’s Showcase. My friend Bear Cat, chose me to showcase this week-thank you.
