Thankful Thursday

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

Sammy is thankful he didn’t get into trouble for peeing on the cat toys or one of the curtains. Brody  sneaks up on him and whaps him one then Sammy gets mad and that is how he releases his frustrations.. I ordered him a calming collar and I plugged the Feliway plug-in back in. I hope it helps.

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

They are celebrating 65 years of marital bliss. 

She would have been happy with just a kiss.

Maybe they should have skipped that wine
because now a nap would be fine.
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 would love to be a fly on the wall in __________________________.
2. I am missing ______________________-.
3. I could use more _________ in my life.
4. I could do without _________.


  1. Awww, that is a very sweet little poem!

    Hope the Feliway and calming collar regime helps with the inappropriate piddling.

  2. That is a fun poem for a funny photo!
    I hope the Feliway and collar work.

  3. Hilarious poem and PERFECT for the photo………..! Thanks for playing along with us this week – some fun poetry has been the result of using that photo for Angel Sammy’s Poetic fun. I’m sorry Sammy reacts like he does when harrassed BUTTT totally understand. Poor baby – I bet the Feliway will help as well as a calming collar. We don’t want him to be upset!

    Hugs, Pam and Teddy too

  4. Good Poem! I hope it works for Sammy. I’ve used the feliway plug in before when I had the three cats and it did calm them down.

  5. We giggled at the poem. So did mum!
    We purr that the collar will help Sammy calm down.
    For the fill-ins, the answer to #4 is COVID 😉

    Purrs,Georgia and Julie

  6. What a great picture and poem. As for Sammy well it’s not his fault that he gets whapped. Hope the calming collar helps him.

  7. Poor Sammy…the victim of random violence!
    Cats certainly express their emotions via their bladders…

  8. Poor Sammy. I hope your fix works.

    I love the poem. That’s so Zane and I late in the day.

    I’m all ready for the fill-ins. Great questions.

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

  12. Once in a great while, if Lightning gets mad about something, he will lift his leg on a chair:(

  13. We hope the calming collar and Feliway helps too – it is so nice that you realized why Sammy did it so her didn’t get more stressed by your reaction.

  14. Love your poem. Did you get the calming collar for Brody or Sammy. I suggest you put one on both of them. We have pee wars here as well. I have used calming collars, and I have diffusers in just about every room. Good luck!

  15. HAHAHA! That photo is hilarious. I can see that happening to me 🙂

    I hope that calming collar works. When our cats are stressed, so are we!

  16. Awww, Sammy… Brody shouldn’t do any sneaky wapping. I hope the calming collar works too. A most excellent poem, it made me laugh this morning. Wine does make you want to nap!

  17. MOL…that was some cute poem, Ellen..MOL… Hope Sammy and Brody will get back to ‘normal’ soon 😸Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend. Stay Safe Healthy and Yourselfie🙏🐾😽💞
