Phoebe’s Poetry

Hi everyone! It has been a tough week, I haven’t seen my Grammie all week. I love her so very much. My poem will explain why I haven ‘t seen her.

DSCF2097 Apparently Mom is following the advice of the book she recommended the other day- The Joy of Leaving Your Sh*t All Over the Place.

I was so happy yesterday morning. Mom put Brody in a carrier and I thought she was bringing him to a new home, but he just went for his rabies shot. It has been 5 months since he was rescued so he was allowed to get his rabies shot. Mom also retested for FELV/FIV and that was negative. She is still waiting on heartworm results. He got basic blood work too and that was good.

Flat Scouts Maggie and Felix are visiting. They made this for their Mom


Today is my friend, Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter G, mine is titled The Great One ( that is what I call Grammie’s Great grand-daughter) .

Great one, you have been here almost  9 months
and I have only met you once.
My Grammie you have stolen
and that upsets my colon
All you do is drool
I can’t wait ’til your old enough for school
then I can have my Grammie back.


And that is why I never get to see my Grammie!!! Phooey!

Mom asked me to give you the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. She came up with the first 2 and our friend, Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

1. One quirk I have is ___________________.

2. My favorite comic strip is ________________________.

3. I am really happy                                           .
4. If I could go anywhere on a road trip, I would go to                                .



  1. Grammie must miss you too:)
    Soon enough, she will drop by fur a visit.
    Pipo & Minko are going to answer these:
    1. One quirk I (Pipo) have is showing pawppy the way to go…I lead him all through the den cause he can’t get there otherwise….
    2. Our favorite comic strip is Mutts.
    3. I, (Minko), am really happy when I get chin sctritches from pawppy…while he eats his meals. MOL! .
    4. If we could go anywhere on a road trip, I would go to meowmy’s cousins in Europe, to visit their kitties! (And to see the home of Pipo’s namesake…) .

    1. That is so nice of you to show your Pawppy the way to the den. My favorite comic strip is Mutts too 🙂 Chin scritches are great 🙂 Europe would be a long trip. Thank you for your answers, they are always great.

  2. Great guns!
    I hope you don’t have the runs!
    And that grinning little grinch
    Will grow up to give you a pinch!
    Little grandkids are gumbersome (poetic license)
    But one day they’ll talk, not mumble some.
    Good times with Grammie
    And with tail, give grandkid a whammy.

    1. NO runs, I was just being dramatic 🙂 She better not give me a pinch 🙁 I am seeing Grammie tomorrow.

  3. Phoebe you put together a grand “G” poem and I know that your Grammie misses you too……she’s spending time with that little sticky purrrrson because she’s a cute baby and humans like babies but once she’s running around all over the place exploring, Grammie will come to YOUR house for some peace and quiet! Tee Hee………….We think the button art Maggie and Felix made for their Mom while they visit is fabulous…….!!!!! Thanks for playing poetry with me today………we’ll be “filling in” tomorrow.

    Love, Sammy

    1. I am enjoying the poetry, I am not as good of a poet as you or my purrince, but it is fun to try. XO

  4. You are such a great poet, Phoebe! I am sorry you haven’t seen your grammie in a while, though. Is the squeaky wheel getting the oil these days? Well, I bet your grammie will come visit you soon. We’ll see you tomorrow for the fill-ins! Purrs!

    1. Grammie is coming tomorrow 🙂 We look forward to your fill-in answers.

  5. Ut oh…that teeny weenie human has your Grammie wrapped around her itty bitty finger.
    I love you poem ..Mol Mol ‘upsets my your colon ‘
    Madi your bffff

  6. I LOVE your poem! You should enlarge it 72 times… print it out… and hang it on Grammies fridge! Hmph! (with a picture of you of course!)

  7. Poor Phoebe, first thinking that Brody was leaving (he wasn’t) and then your Grammie ignoring you (well…distracted at least…)! Am thinking you need some extra treats to get over these horrible incidents!

    1. I was happy when I thought Brody was leaving ( hee-hee). I do think I deserve extra treats though 🙂

  8. Maggie’s and Felix’s button creation is so cool. Phoebe, we are sure your Grammie will find more time for you as The Great One becomes more independent. We are so happy Brody’s tests are turning out well. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    1. Flat Mau should visit us and he can make a button collage too 🙂 XO

  9. Poor Phoebe. We don’t think it’s fair that you’ve been denied your grammie in favor of something that drools. And about Brody? Caroline feels the same way any time one of the I boys gets put into a troll box.

    1. Caroline is a smart girl 🙂 Grammie is coming to see me tomorrow. 🙂

  10. Well dat’s pawsum mews ’bout Brody. We don’t think your grammy’s been stolen. We think she luvs you just as much as befur, but da baby is new. Don’t worry gawjus, soon da new will wear off and da baby will be all sticky and screamy. Your grammy will be back. MOL

    Luv ya’

    Dezi and Raena

  11. You’ve been replaced by a baby. That’s not right, but I understand. Perhaps if she reads this poem she’ll make some time for you.

    Have a purrfect day. ☺

  12. Oh Phoebe, your Grammie loves yous the bestest! Brodie is the newbie. And speaking of which, mes happy his tests was good.

    4. If I could go anywhere on a road trip, I would go to your house! Mes would LOVES to meets all of yous!
    Nellie .

    1. Thank you for your answers. Sammy yaks a lot in the morning and the vet said it was because it was too long between his meals so he has to have a late night snack. Garfield rocks 🙂 We would love for you to visit us, we would have so much fun. XO

  15. That’s a great poem, Phoebe. Your Grammie still loves you but needs to spend time with the Great one too. I liked LouLou’s reply to you too. That is good news that Brody’s tests are good.

  16. Brody, we are so glad you checked out well! And Phoebe… we think maybe you have a long wait until the sticky lil person is in school.

    1. Brody says thank you and I think you are right about the school- phooey!

  17. We love your poem, Phoebe. Sorry you have not gotten to visit so much with your beloved Grammie. We know she loves you lots, too!

  18. Phoebe, your poem sure did make me laugh! I’m sorry that you haven’t see your Grammie as much as you’d like. I know she still loves you, though!
