#JHC Day 5 and Poetry

Hi everyone! 100_9624 Mary M was the only one who noticed I had a bandage on in this photo yesterday. That other carrier was for me-phooey! I had to have blood stolen to test my thyroid again ( we get results later today). At least it was a pretty pink with glitters.

My Dad got me a big container of treats, he is so sweet. He even said I didn’t have to share, but mean Mom said I do have to share. I saw Grammie on Wednesday, I love her so very much. And I will see her again today too.

Today is Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter Q. I have written a haiku about the talented kitty artist Quint.

Keep your Picasso
your Renoir and Van Gogh too!
We prefer a “Quint”


Last year, someone surprised us with a Quint painting and we finally have the perfect frame for it. Noel is posing with it.


Today’s word for the #JHC is candy and Mom’s favorite snack this time of year is orange kit kats. Here is Prancie, our orange kit kat posing with one.dscf2618

They are actually white chocolate and only available at Target.


And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow, Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

  1. I am praying your thyroid results are good. Mom needs you to stay well! Cute poem. I look forward to your fill-ins! The orange KitKats are available a couple of places here. Bill likes white chocolate, too. Hugs!

  2. We love chocolate…no matter the flavor or color, MOL! But…we are not supposed to have it anymore except the unsweetened dark kind which we can use in recipes:) So we still win,MOL! (Paleo diets are not the norm…)

    We hope your thyroid results come back good, Phoebe, yes we sure are purring for that.

    1. I am so impressed that you follow the Paleo diet-I only follow the seafood one- I eat everything I see.
      Thank you for the purrs, her thyroid is good now with 1/2 pill twice a day. She is starting to have kidney disease though, but it is good to catch early.

  3. We’re so sorry Phoebe that we didn’t notice your boo-boo! I hope your tests come back normal!!!

    Glad you’re celebrating today’s topic with your own type of candy (treats!). And of course, it’s great to see Prancie, a true Halloween cat – like me!!!

    Thanks also for sharing Quint’s art! You’ve inspired mom! I’m afraid i may have some messy days somewhere near in my future!!!

    Happy day!!

  4. I missed the glitter bandaid … but I caught the two carrier comment two days ago and figured SOMECAT was going to the vet with Joanie 🙂 Hope you are both okay. Yay for Grammies and yay for treats (separate and together)!

  5. I hope you have good results from your blood test, Phoebe. My mum doesn’t like orange flavour chocolate, so she thought yuk until your mum said it was white chocolate. Your Quint painting is lovely.

  6. Well, Phoebe, looking on the bright side, at least you got a new tub of treats and a visit from Grammie after your blood was stolen. We do hope that your results come back looking great! And we love your poem, your Quint painting, and your candy picture! You know, somehow this human has never heard of or seen orange Kit Kats. I guess I should visit Target more often. Purrs, and we’ll see you tomorrow for the fun fill-ins!

  7. We do hope that the results are good! Toby has been on his thyroid meds since last Sunday and is doing really well, eating much better.

    1. That is great that Toby is doing so well. I hope he is better about taking his meds than Phoebe is- we struggle twice a day.

  8. Darn, Phoebe, our eyes aren’t what they used to be. Didn’t even see your bandage. Good luck with your test.
    We love Quin’t art. Mommy has just about everyone he has painted. That’s a very nice frame.

    1. That is cool that your Mom has lots of Quints, we bet she has nice frames for them too. XO

  9. Aww, I’m sorry you had to have your blood stolen, but I hope the results are okay. I’ve never seen an orange Kit Kat before! I will have to be on the lookout!

  10. I hope your test comes back good.

    I know you love your Grammie and you’re going to see her again today. Maybe you’ll have more treats.

    Have a purrfect day. My best to your mom. ☺

  11. I noticed your bandage too but I forgot to ask you about it, sweet Phoebe. I hope your results come back good.

  12. I love Quint’s paintings! It’s so cool that you have one; love the frame! Hope your bluds have the correct levels of thyroid stuff, Phoebe!

    1. They come in regular chocolate, dark and white- but at Halloween the white ones are orange ( but not flavored orange). XO

  16. Phoebe, I am sorry that you had your blood taken but hope that your test is good! Have a nice visit with your Grammie!

    Purrrrrrrrrrs, Spike William

    1. Candy corn is good too 🙂 Phoebe’s thyroid is good now with 1/2 pill twice a day.

  17. We hope your blood work is good. At least you got some treats out of it! That is a great frame for Quint’s painting! We have one of Quint’s paintings too.

  18. I hope your T4 tests are good, Phoebe. I have to get them myself, and it is sometimes difficult to get the doses right for even us big humans. Glad you got treats and a visit from Grammy ! And I hope Joanie’s ears are ok too !

    1. Thank you, yes, my Mom gets it too, but she has a slow thyroid- she wants to trade with me. Grammie brought treats today.

  19. Awww I’m so sorry that you had your blood stolen. 🙁 That is no fun at all. I hope that the tests come back fine and that you’re A-okay!

    That is a nice little haiku about artists.

    I like KitKats, too, but the regular chocolate ones. David likes the white chocolate ones, though.

    Have a blessed day!

  20. We hope you rec’d good news from your lab work!!
    Mom and I are gonna add the fill in’s to our post for tomorrow
    Hugs madi your bfff

  21. I am really hoping your thyroid results are good, pretty Phoebe.

    Your “Quint” is beautiful! That’s a great poem.

    Orange KitKats sound good!

  22. Phoebe, we have our paws crossed and Mom is praying that your blood work comes back showing good levels for your thyroid. Our mom loves Quint’s prints as well. She has many, many and has given them as gifts. Such a great idea to write a haiku about them. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    1. Thyroid is good, but she has the beginnings of kidney disease 🙁
      We love Quint’s work. XO

  23. TW got her bloods stolen today too! She’s also seen those orange Kit Kat’s all over in past year’s. She loves Kit Kat’s but not orange ones cos white chocolate isn’t chocolate at all.
    1. My favorite store is Chewy.com.

    2. An unanswered prayer I am thankful for is that I’m not still living in the shelter.

    3. At Halloween, I used to watch the trick or treaters until that one year when teenagers ran through the hall screaming all day.

    4. I believe in the supernatural, because I once saw an orb in our condo.

  24. While i’ve never seen a Quint before (i don’t think), i would love to see more of them!

  25. What a great haiku! Quint is a most talented artist for sure…lucky you to have an original. Phoebe, I hope you won’t have to join the Thyroid Club. Same with the kidney issues……although my doc said mine are very minor now. Pink bandages are very girlie!

    Hugs, Sammy

    1. Phoebe is in the thyroid club, she takes 1/2 pill twice a day- that gets her membership doesn’t it?
      You would look cute with a pink bandage 🙂 XO
