If Pets Had Thumbs Day

Hi everyone! Today is If Pets Had Thumbs Day. Let me tell you, if I had thumbs this gumball machine would be empty. DSCF0603

I got into a little bit of trouble the other night. Dad took a tone with me. He was using the water pik and I went in to say goodnight and got caught on the cord. Sploosh! The whole thing spilled on the bathroom floor. Mom cleaned it and I went and pouted in my chair until Dad apologized to me. He gave me treats too. The trick to getting out ofย  trouble is to look very offended-works every time.

I got to see my Grammie, I love her so very much. Friday is the big day for my ultrasound. I wish my Grammie could come, but she will be with her great grandchild. I wonder what I could do for her to say I am great?

Don’t tell Joanie, but I videotaped her snoring last night:



  1. Good look with the ultrasound. We like your method for getting out of trouble. Mauricio snores sometimes as well. Hope Joanie doesn’t find out you videoed her snoring. Mauricio snores sometimes and much louder than Joanie. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  2. We’ll have to try that but we don’t think it will work with Jan. She wouldn’t give us treats for being offended. At least it works for you. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. We sure are purring hard fur the ultrasound to not show anything too bad.
    Glad you got to spend time with your Grammie!

    Minko is a snorer, and he peeps in his sleep too…sounds like a snoring birdie, MOL!

    We hope the water splashing on you was not too wet…tee-hee!

    1. Thank you for purring for me, I will let you know how it goes. Please video Minko, that will be fun.

  4. Boodie is our snorer! I never knew that looking offended can get you out of trouble – I will have to try it!

    Sending purrs for your ultrasound!

    1. Thank you for the purrs. Good luck with the offended trick ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I’m sending your purrs and prayers for a positive outcome on your ultrasound!!! Mom says I snore but I don’t believe her. Angel LadyBird snored to be the band! OMC! she snored so loud I would have to sleep on the sofa!!! But you know what? I miss that snore now!! Joanie’s gonna get you for videoing her!!! Kisses to Penny and Millie!!

    1. Shh! Don’t tell Joanie I made a video and posted it. Thank you for the purrs and prayers for my ultrasound. I am sure you do miss LadyBird’s snoring XO Penny and Millie send kisses back.

  6. Joanie might not be very happy that you videoed her snoring. I snore too, but quietly. Me and my mum used to say that Eric and my dad were having a competition to see who could snore the loudest.

    1. Thank you for the good luck. Nice to know this trick works for another kitty too.

  7. Good luck with the ultrasound tomorrow kiddo. We’re pulling for you. We love the way you get out of trouble. Smart thinking on your part. Just so you know, we think you’re great!
    Angel Normie, Mika, Sasha & Grady Lewis

  8. I think your method for getting out of trouble is genius, Phoebe. You even got treats out of it! And, of course, we’ll be purring and praying that your ultrasound goes well.

    And good job catching Joanie snoring on camera. My angel Rosie was quite the snorer. Purrs!

    1. Thank you for the purrs and prayers. I bet Angel Rosie’s snore was cute like Joanie’s ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. WE sure hope that ultrasound goes well and that nothing is wrong. Great video of you snoring Joanie. Lots of us snore too, so don’t feel badly.

    1. Shh! Don’t let Joanie know I taped her ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the good thoughts on the ultrasound.

    Dezi and Lexi

    1. This was the first time Joanie snored- and I caught it on camera ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for the purrs and prayers XO

  13. Phoebe darling girl…I am purring harder than hard that all goes well for you and that ultrasound.

    I think my mom just may do the same darn thing and video ME snoring! I loved hearing Joanie so I know I’m not the only one. xoxoxox

  14. Gosh, that tactic never works for us. Maybe we need to move in with you!

    Good luck with your ultrasound tomorrow!

  15. Phoebe, the lady and I love you and will be thinking of your tomorrow.

    Good for you on getting an apology from your dad! I like your pouting tactic!

    Please tell your mom that Pierrot LOVES the toy she sent that’s little and red and is crocheted around some plastic. He plays with it everywhere. Somehow, it ends up all over the house.

    We enjoyed Joanie’s video!

    1. Thank you- I love you too. Snowball is glad Pierrot liked his gift. And Joanie doesn’t know about the video- MOL!

  16. TW always thinks I’m moaning when I make that snoring noise. She wakes me up. Can you believe that? I should wake her up when she snores.

  17. I think your mom should empty that gumboil machine and give it all to you after the ultrasound!

  18. If WE had thumbs, we would NEVER be inside on a nice morning, we would eat when we wanted to, and we would turn off the alarm clock…

  19. I love cats with thumbs. Polydactyls are my very favourites. My beloved Purrl had thumbs, and Maggie P. has thumbs. Traditionally, you name the polydactyl cats a P. name, or the middle name is a P. name. We named Maggie, “Magnolia Pearl”. Anyway, I posted about them (briefly) last year. I love polys, and adore Maggie. I miss Miss Purrl every day.

    1. I didn’t know about the naming, and I named my polydactyl cat, Polar Bear- that is funny I will have to look up your post about that, I hope there is a photo of Miss Purrl.
