Blog 4 Peace

Hi everyone! We are participating in the Blog4Peace again this year. Instead of making a new globe, I have decided to use last year’s with Phoebe and Brody. Now if I could only get Sammy and Brody to be able to sit that close.

 

We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Ten Things of Thankful.

Here are my ten thankfuls:

  1. Baseball season is over- I have nothing against the sport except that it is on almost EVERY day. And those men spit way too much.
  2. The Orville already got renewed for season 2. If you haven’t seen it yet, it is on Fox Thursday night, sort of like the original Star Trek.
  3. I found a great website with all kinds of free printables to help organize everything- from cleaning schedules, party planning, gift shopping, etc. It is called Iheartorganizing.
  4. Emmy sat near me and let me pet her.
  5. I got to see the great one in her Halloween costume, she had quite a few relatives that came to see her. I am glad she is so loved, if all kids were that loved, we would have a world of peace.
  6. I am going to the great one’s 2nd birthday party today- the theme is Teletubbies 🙂
  7. My toe is officially fine and I don’t have to go back to the podiatrist. I had a procedure done a month ago that makes that side of the nail never grow back- and it worked.
  8. Prancie continues to do well ( this should be #1, but I am too lazy to switch it). Thank you all for the purrs and prayers.
  9. I have a new Nic Cage movie to watch tonight.
  10. Chewy sent us a Halloween gift.. I am a ChewyInfluencer and it is so nice to be appreciated. I worked for the local school system for 13 years and was never shown appreciation.

Look at all these cool spiders!

Ten Things of Thankful

Hi everyone! We have a busy post today. First off , we are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop.My first thankful is the art-

  1. I won a necklace from Memorial Glass Pendants on Cat Chat with Caren and Cody quite a while ago. It is made with ashes of a beloved pet and I had planned to send a little of each of my angels, but Phoebe was so sick that I couldn’t bring myself to deal with it. After Phoebe passed away, I was too sad.Well, last week I finally sent some ashes for the necklace. I decided that Phoebe and Snowball were always together so I chose to have the necklace made with their ashes.

My photo doesn’t do the necklace justice. It is so beautiful and looks like stars in the sky.

2. I am thankful that the owner let me know when the ashes arrived and sent back the ones she didn’t use as well.

3. Hubby and I celebrated our 25th anniversary this week ( I guess that should be #1) .

4. A pizza party with the great one and my mom.

5. Made a cheesecloth ghost with the great one, she is finally at a good age to do some arts and crafts.

6. Mom and I spent the day at the casino on Thursday ( we go every year around her birthday).

7. I only lost $3 at the casino, the most I will part with is $20.

8. Black Cats Tell All came out this week and I am thankful Spooky’s story is part of it.To order click here

9. Thankful some of you plan to watch the movie I was in that Joanie told you about on Monday.

10. Thankful I was able to get Sammy’s vomit off my favorite black cat shirt. It was hanging off the bureau and he stood on the bureau and yacked over the edge.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Not sure you remember me, I am not on the blog often, but that is about to change. Phoebe chose me as the next leader and one of those duties includes writing. I hope it doesn ‘t cut into my nap time and my torture Daddy time. I love my Daddy the most, he doesn’t even get mad when I knock all the stuff off the table by his chair. I do that about 5 times a day.

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful for getting to spend almost 13 years as Phoebe’s sister. We used to play fight to get our folks to give out snacks, but we always were friends.

Now, here is my very first poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter Q.

Queen
Phoebe named me the next Queen
because I am the most serene.
She told Emmy to help me out,
she has more clout
always smacking Joanie and Sam with her paw
she has lots of chutzpah.
I am going to be the poet
I hope I don’t blow it.

Phoebe left me her crown. She said we can all wear her clothes except her yellow polka dot bikini and her harness dress, those are to never be worn by anyone again. She also left us her pole dancing money and said we should buy another water fountain with it because water is so important for our kidneys.We all miss her very, very much.

Phoebe’s Purrince is not doing well, he has some health problems and is not eating so please purr and pray for him.To visit him, click here.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for Friday. Mom came u with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.


1. October is the perfect time to ____________________________.

2. Halloween _________________________.

3. Every October, I                               .

4. My experience with the supernatural world is                                   .
Thank you for reading this!

I Had a Wonderful Life

Hi everyone! My folks had to make the toughest decision of their lives today. They had to let me go, I was getting weaker every day and could no longer swallow or even close my little eyes. They are heartbroken and so is my Grammie and my Purrince. I love them all very much. And I love you all too. Thank you for the purrs and prayers, but God had other plans for me. Mom is going to still take a break for a while, but she will visit you all someday soon.

 

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                              .

 

Miserable Monday

Hi everyone. I am going to take a short break from blogging because of Phoebe’s health. She had been doing so well eating, but she seemed weak so I took her to the vet Saturday.

She was dehydrated so she got her fluids. Her weight went down again despite eating well  and is now 4 pounds 12 ounces. We are waiting on some blood work results that will be in on Monday. Her anemia has gotten worse too, but we don’t know if the cause is kidney disease or something else.

Annie at McGuffy’s Reader will still run the Friendly Fill-Ins on Friday if I am not blogging then. I just want to spend my time with her just in case we don’t have much more time.

All purrs and prayers are appreciated. Thank you.

Pet Blogger Showcase and Selfies

Hi everyone! Before I get started, I want to give our sympathies to our friends at Animal Shelter Volunteer Life. They had to say goodbye to their beautiful kitty, Zoe.

 

I am joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop. And guess what? I was chosen as part of the showcase on all 4 blogs that host The Pet Blogger Showcase!

Thank you Momma and Bear Cat ( Ellie too), Pet Faves, Heart Like a Dog, Feline Opines! I am honored.

And the winner of this coloring book and some crocheted toys is Adventures in Cheeseland– Congratulations!

PS: I love my Grammie very much and I hope she visits me soon.

Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Ten Things of Thankful.

This is Phoebe on a low branch in a crab apple tree, I used ribbet to add the daisy frame. I think it matches her dress nicely.

Here are my Thankfuls-

  1. Great health insurance that allowed me to see my primary care, allergist and podiatrist this week.
  2. Getting to see a butterfly emerge from a chrysalis ( I had never seen this before) .

3. Being able to buy bobbins for my sewing machine that are already threaded, I could never figure out how to thread them using my machine even with an instructional dvd and manual.

4.Having the luxury of staying home with my cats  almost all the time.

5. Harvest of green beans and yellow ones too that I was able to freeze for winter.

6.A visit to St. Anne’s Shrine with my mom. I was able to restock my supply of St. Christopher medals, I like to give them to people that are going to be traveling. I recently gave my last one too my friend’s daughter who was headed to Jerusalem for 5 months to study dance.

7. Breakfast at our favorite diner with my hubby on Monday ( yummy blueberry pancakes).

8. spending time with my great-niece who cracks me up constantly.

9.No vet trips this week.

10. Phoebe eating well ( knock on wood, 3 times) and thanks to God too, this means more to me than anything else right now.

Phoebe will announce the winner of the coloring book tomorrow.

There is still time to enter, just comment on Thursday’s post.

 

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                                 .
