Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop

Trouble is thankful for high places to escape from Penny. For some reason Penny is mean to her so Penny can’t be in the same room with her unless we are home.

We are also joining   Sammy’s Poetry Day. Here is my poem to go with this photo prompt provided by Teddy’s mom.

All get into the photo please
just smile and say cheese.
We look more like rats,
but we are just meerkats.
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and my co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.
1. I wish I could tell me teenage self ____________________________.

2. I think the most romantic movie is ___________________.

3. _________ was the last time I _________.
4. _________ happens too often.


  1. CUTE POEM!!!!! They are a cute little bunch of creatures and have a tight little community (and keep warm by clumping up I guess!!!). Some of them definitely said “CHEESE” when they posted for this photo – especially that one in the middle. So sorry that Trouble has to go to the highest of highs to escape Penny but she looks quite happy up there in the sky!

    Hugs, Teddy

  2. Sad to hear that Penny is mean to Trouble. I know it makes you sad, too. I guess we can’t always get along. Personality clashes happen even for us peeps. Boy do I know about that! The meerkats are cute looking little beings… enjoyed your poem. Good Morning!

  3. Ellen,

    You might have to retort, if you don’t get along, I’ll send you to the cathouse! lol Cute poem. Got your blank statements for tomorrow’s post. See ya then, my friend. Thanks!

  4. I’m sorry Penny is mean to you Trouble. Not nice at all.

    I love the poem.

    I’m all ready for Friendly Fill-ins. Thanks for co-hosting the fun.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday, Ellen. Scritches to the kitties. ♥

  5. Oh Trouble, don’t let Penny boss you around, you need to win her over with your charm. That was a cute poem. Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  6. Maybe if Trouble had a less troublesome name there would be less trouble? Seriously though a reintroduction will help. Feliway works sometimes. Thanks for stopping by with your kind condolences for Clyde 🌈

  7. There used to be a show on TV about the adventures of some meercats. This was several years ago. We watched faithfully. Then it disappeared…what a shame….we loved it.
    Your poems are always some of the best. They are short and to the point. You say it all so concisely.


  8. There seems to be a lot of good advice in the comments about the Trouble/Penny problem, let us know if it works, I have the same issue at my place. In the meanwhile, enjoy your perch you beautiful Trouble!

  9. I know exactly how Trouble feels. Only I can’t do what she does–escape to the top of the cat tree–because I can’t jump so well any more. So I have to hide or hope my mom is nearby to intervene when Ivan starts in on me.

    We like the meerkats poem!


  10. So Penny likes Rosie, but not you, Trouble? Is she playing favorites? Not that we have the right to judge any of you on this matter. At our house, Eddy and Tonks can’t be in the same room, usually not even when I’m home. In a happier note, your poem is as wonderful as ever!

  11. That’s too bad that Penny is mean to Trouble! But I suppose when you have a lot of cats like you do, there are bound to be some conflicts. It looks like Trouble has a great and fun place to escape to!
