Ode to Nicolas Cage

dscf2476 Hi everyone! I am having a bad week. You know how Mom took Noel to the vet, but I hid my card so I wouldn’t have to go? Turns out the rotten sneaky veterinarian sends email reminders too. I had to go with them and they stole some of my blood. I have lost a pound in 6 months, I am a svelte 7.15 pounds. My thyroid is hyper so I need to take medicine for it like Millie and Polar Bear- good luck getting me to do that.

Grammie felt bad for me so she bought me my very own bag small bag of party mix that I don’t have to share. I love my Grammie so very much.

Today is Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter N so I thought I would write a poem about Mom’s favorite actor.

Mom’s favorite actor is Nicolas Cage
She has liked him since she was 17 years of age.
All his movies she has seen
they lift her up like caffeine
Nic has been in a lot of flops
he has even played a few cops.
To meet him is the only thing on her bucket list
she just wants a photo. not a tryst.


And the winner of my piorate giveaway is Laila and Minchie– congratulations! I can’t wait to see you both dressed as pirates.


And for P.S. Annie’s 19-Somethin’ Challenge, the question is: Did you get into MTV? If not, what was your favorite music-based tv program? My Mom watched MTV from the start and she loved Solid Gold too. She used to want to be a Solid Gold dancer- MOL!

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow, we hope you will all join. Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

1. Something healthy I do daily is ________________________.
2, Something unhealthy I do daily is ____________________________.
3. This Summer,                                         .

4. This Autumn,                                          .



  1. Wow, Phoebe! We hope the medicine will help you stay healthy. We had a kitty here years and years ago and he was a real skinny mancat. Yikes. Too much thyroid can make other parts of you go all funky too…esp your heart.

    That is a fun poem:)

    Nice that you get your own treats…you can have them after you take your meds like a bribe…MOL!

    We didn’t ever watch MTV, though apparently is was/is in our lineup. We do not care for that kind of music…we are classical fans…think Beethoven and suchlike. We think the music we would see on the TV was on PBS.

    Here are our fill ins , in advance.
    1. Something healthy I do daily is take my vitamins and minerals..
    2, Something unhealthy I do daily is eat too much ice cream. (When I am at work before I go home…)
    3. This Summer, we had quite a dry spell but now its very green again. .

    4. This Autumn, we plan to build a shed so we can put our new snowthrower in there…when we get it. Watch, there will hardly be any snow this winter because we will prepared, MOL!

    Concats to the pirate winners..we hope they will show off their gear and be really piratey! Avast! .

    1. Thank you for your answers. I have been having too much ice cream this summer too, but I haven’t had any in 2 weeks now. That is usually how it works when you prepare, but that would be OK with no snow. 🙂

  2. How awesome that you got your own bag of treats, Phoebe! Not so awesome that you’re supposed to take meds.

    My human used to like Nicholas Cage, but it must have been some sort of phase because she isn’t really into him anymore.

  3. Sorry you had to go to the vet Phoebe! It’s a place few of us enjoy!! Mom likes your poem – she’s seen Nic Cage is most of his movies – she’s likes his quirkiness and voice. Good Friday Fill-ins – now – who will answer them?

    1. I have to go back in 2 weeks for a weigh in and to give blood and again 2 weeks later- phooey!

  4. Oh no Phoebe! You’re a member of the thyroid club now huh? Well, you’re in good company with two of your family AND me me me me me! As for Nicolas Cage, my Mom has always liked him too but maybe not as MUCH as your Mom……he’s an interesting person as well as a good actor. Thanks for the fill-ins, now all we have to do is FILL IN! Thanks for being part of my Poetic Thursdays – – – you are quite the poet!

    Hugs, Sammy

    1. We should start a special thyroid club 🙂 My Mom thinks Nic is interesting too. We look forward to your fill-in answers. XO

  5. I’m sorry to hear about your hyperthyroidism, Phoebe. But, it sounds like in you’re in good hands with your mom! And, your grammie got you treats of your very own! What a purrfect grammie she is.

    We love your poem about Nicolas Cage. He sure is lucky to have a fan as loyal as your mom!

    The fill-ins for this week are great (as always)! We’ll see you with our answers tomorrow! Purrs!

    1. I love my Grammie so very much. My Mom sure does adore Nic. We look forward to your answers tomorrow.

  6. Those vet people are sneaky, Phoebe. Somehow they never let our humans forget about taking us to see them. We’re glad you’re doing okay and we hope the medicine helps you. We know those treats will make you feel better! 🙂 That was a cool poem about Nicholas Cage.

    1. Your Mom has great taste 🙂 That is what my mom said. I can’t wait to see you BOTH in the costume 🙂

  7. Phoebe, will they give back the bloods that they stole from you? I offer my suggestion to your mom to get pill paste to wrap your prescription in; works for my crew!
    1. Something healthy I do daily is power walk for at least 30 minutes.
    2, Something unhealthy I do daily is worry about my outside kitties due to coming cold weather.
    3. This Summer, I took not one but two vacations!.
    4. This Autumn, I plan to take another vacation.

    1. I am too smart, I would spit it out 🙂 Thank you for your answers, they are great. My Mom is impressed you power walk daily. We hope your outside kitties decide to move in for the winter. Glad you are getting to go on vacations.

  8. I hope that you’re going to be okay, Phoebe. I’m sorry that you’re having problems. That is a nice poem. Regarding the vets, does your also call to remind your mommy when you need to go to visit them?

    Thanks for playing along with our 19-Somethin’ challenge. I remember Solid Gold. I’m sure your mommy would have been a fine Solid Gold dancer. Me, however? I wouldn’t even make it as an iron dancer. 🙂

    Have a blessed day!

    1. The vet sends postcards in the mail and email reminders when we are due for checkups and rabies vaccines- they are squealers. We hope you have a blessed day too.

    Luv ya’

    Dezi and Raena

  11. I’m sorry the vet stole some of your blood! That is so rude. You wrote a nice poem about Mr. Cage though. Like your mom, I watched MTV from the start. Back when MTV used to be good. Purrs…

  12. That is a nice poem about Nicolas Cage. my mum is a big fan too. I am sorry you have hyperthyroidism and have to take pills. I hope they make you feel good.

    1. Thank you my sweet purrince. I will go read your poem about Nylablue, I am sure it is wonderful. XO and paw kisses.

  14. Sorry you had to visit the vet.

    We hope your mum gets her wish and meets Nicholas Cage. My mum wants to meet Supervet Noel Fitzpatrick. Yeah, can you believe it? A vet. What a scary thought 🙁

    Purrs xx

  15. Phoebe so sorry to hear that you had to deal with your thyroid and that you have to take some meds for it. Be a good girl and take the meds.

    Our humans love Nicholas Cage too. They never tire of watching his National Treasures movie. They even had movie night with friends at home and shown National Treasure.

  16. We’re sorry that your thyroid is giving you trouble, Phoebe, but we hope your medication works properly, Phoebe. Your poem is marvellous! We loved The City of Angels…he was such an angel 😀 Healing Pawkisses to feel better very soon 🙂 <3 <3 <3

    1. My Mom likes that movie too, but she thought it was very sad so she prefers some of his other movies. Thank you for the sweet words about my medicine. XO

  17. I’ve enjoyed Nic Cage’s acting, and like him a lot, but his behavior in the last few years has left me confused.

    Poor Phoebe, this isn’t going to be fun for her is it?

    1. Something healthy I do daily is sleep
    2, Something unhealthy I do daily is not sleep well enough
    3. This Summer, I was warm .
    4. This Autumn, I will be cold. I am not looking forward to it.

    1. Nic has been making some odd choices in his movies. Thank you for your answers, my Mom is the opposite, she likes it cold- because of hot flashes- MOL!

  18. So sorry you had to go to the mean vet. I hate going there too. But we hope your thyroid can be managed with medication and you’ll stop losing weight.

  19. You sound like Sweetie Pie, the cat that stayed at the shelter her whole life because she had a bad heart condition and wouldn’t take her medicine. Even when caretakers thought she had taken it, she would hide it in her cheek and then rub her mouth against the wall until she could wipe most of it out of her mouth! Do your Mama a favor and don’t do that. Take your medicine so you will stay healthy and well.

  20. Oh, please take your medicine. You need to do what the doctor says! Mom loves you and needs you to be healthy.

    That is quite a poem! *wink* I wonder why mom loves him so?!


  21. Benny is now hyperthyroid too–and goes back on the 21st for blood work. He didn’t get his own bag of treats like you did though–lucky!
