Phoebe’s Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I haven’t seen Grammie in a few days, but I am going to see her today. I love her so very much.

Mom and Dad have been playing cribbage. I forgot how much fun it is. I give mom a bitey every time she goes to move her pegs. I don’t bite Dad though- MOL!

003006I always get the same cards-Jokers.

You can hear me purr in this video, I am so happy.

I was so happy until I saw this: 002The stupid vet office sent a card to remind Mom that I need a rabies shot- phooey! Any ideas of where I can hide this?

I love my purrince! It is almost the one year anniversary of our first date and when we fell in love. I can’t believe this time lastΒ  year I was hoping for a Valentine’s date. I am so thankful for him. I am joining PepiSmartDog’s Thankful Thursday Hop, pet centric




  1. Bitey cribbage sounds like a fun game! We should teach our Mommy how to play. MOL!
    We suggest ripping vet reminder card into tiny, tiny pieces and peeing on them. Works every time.
    Happy Thursday, furriends!

    1. I am sure you will love it, your Mom, not so much. Too late for the card- I have to go to the vet on Tuesday-phooey!

  2. Uh-oh, those shots are never fun! Mine are up to date, which is a good thing since I will be going out of town this weekend – again! My human has never played cribbage, and Binga wishes she would since apparently it’s important to have a kitty there to bite at least one human, and she is certainly game!

    1. Binga would love cribbage. We only need rabies every 3 years in Massachusetts, so I shouldn’t complain.

  3. Oh, Phoebe, what a lovely video of yours!! Silly Mom played a lot of boardgames when we were at her parents’ place, but they never let us join!!!! We’re so envious!

    We don’t know how you can hide the card. Humans tend to have a good memory on these kind of things, so we’re not even sure it’s worth hiding it. That being said, under the fridge is normally a good place.

    1. That was so mean of them not to let you join in the fun. Board games are fun because there are lots of little pieces to play with. Too late for the vet card, I am going Tuesday- phooey!

  4. So nice to hear you purr and you look like you had lots of fun playing cribbage. Very sweet. Oh!!! Is Valentine’s Day coming up???? Don’t tell Penny – but I think Cupid will be winging her way soon!!!! Pawkissess, Toby

    1. Phoebe says thank you and I think Cupid already struck Penny because she is in love with Toby. XO

  5. Hide that reminder in your litterbox, Phoebe, no one will look for it in there πŸ˜‰ You look like me on that bitey thingie…MOL πŸ˜€ You and Siddhartha are a an adorable couple. He is growing into a beautiful mancat, hasn’t he πŸ™‚ Pawkisses for a beautiful day πŸ™‚ <3

    1. I love my purrince. Too late, Mom made me an appointment for Tuesday. πŸ™ Pawkisses to you too .

  6. Phoebe I think it’s too late to hide that reminder card from the doctor…..yep – your Mom has seen it so it’s a “done deal”………but you will be brave I’m sure. My Mom used to play cribbage ALL THE TIME but hasn’t in years. My Dad is a stick in the mud about games so she doesn’t get to play but that’s OK because she has ME ME ME to play with!

    Love, Sammy

    1. Yup, too late vet appointment on Tuesday- phooey! Cribbage is fun, your Mom should make your Dad play. XO and love to you too!

  7. MOL, Phoebe! Carmine likes to play board and card games, too!

    We can take that card and hide it over here for you. Your mom will never think to look over here… πŸ˜‰

    1. Too late- vet appointment Tuesday, but thanks for the offer. I bet Carmine has lots of fun πŸ™‚

  8. phoebe….15 for 2 πŸ™‚

    any way, rite across de front oh de vet card, mooved…noe forwardin a dress & put de card back in de mail box πŸ™‚ β™₯β™₯β™₯

    1. That was a good idea, next vet card I will do that too. Mom found this and I am going on Tuesday.

  9. I loved hearing you purr, Phoebe! I don’t know what to tell you about that letter from the naughty vet – it looks like your mom already has photographic evidence of it. But, to get your mind off of that, happy almost anniversary to you and your purrince! Purrs!

  10. Pretty Phoebe…can you give me a refresher course on how to play cribbage? It’s been much too long, but I know I could pick up euchre again in a heartbeat. Hope your Grammie gives you lots of treats and snuggles!

    1. Cribbage is fun, you just bite the hand of the person moving their pegs πŸ™‚ The people playing seem to want their cards in a row or the add up to 15. I always have fun with Grammie πŸ™‚

  11. Aaaaaaw Bootyful Phoebe we luvved yous purr and we luvved Joanie’s mew. Glad yous gunna get to see your gwammaw today. Maybe dat’ll make up fur da VET reminder. They sure know how to spoil a girlys day don’t they. MOL Have a gweat day.

    Luv ya’

    Dezi and Lexi

  12. We think Prancer Pie has the right idea about that reminder card!
    And we see that they couldn’t play cribbage properly without you – good job!

  13. Sounds like a fun game Phoebe and you sure have a favorite MOL
    Your Purrince is a very nice kitty and we wish you a good time fur Valentines!
    We get our Rabies every two years now and this seems to work better.

  14. You have a lovely purr Phoebe. My mum doesn’t play cribbage so I don’t have to give her the bitey. She does show me her cards when she plays poker though because I always sit by her.

  15. My mom learned to play cribbage when she was very young…around 5 years old. Her grandpa taught her. Their version didn’t involve any biting.
    You have a great purr in the video.

    1. Your Mom learned to play very young. It is a great game for learning counting. I like my bitey version πŸ™‚

  16. Phoebe, you look so happy in that second pic and I love your purring video! You need to quickly bury that card in the litter box!

    Please tell Snowball that if she loves a naughty boy, she’s got the purrfect boyfriend in Pierrot!

    1. Snowball is happy, Pierrot is handsome and naughty. She is a good girl , she never gets in trouble. Too late on the card, I have to go to the vet Tuesday- phooey!

  18. Mom doesn’t play cribbage so she doesn’t need a bitey. Ocean still tries to give her one anyway once in a while – until he realizes his mistake.

    1. Tell TBT to keep practicing online, although it is not as much fun as the real thing. Maybe you kitties can give him some biteys.

  19. ……….We loved hearing about your cribbage antics. We would like to play cribbage. Recommending you hide that rabies notice with dust bunnies under a low surface like a bed. You can do it! We tried to hear you purr but youtube gave us an error. Mean youtube. We are learning to type today. 3cdkf-wlrp[w how was that?

    1. Too late with the rabies notice- vet appointment Tuesday- phooey!Good job typing- was it Peaches or Paprika that did that?

  20. PepiSmartDog: Hahahaha! Love your article. What a tricky girl – biting mom and not dad. Hee Hee!
