Phoebe’s Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone!DSCF1716 I decided to try my paw at poetry again, I know I am not as good as Sammy, but I will try. This week is for the letter C.

Cat-A-Bliss catnip is the best
it passes every test
I get excited with just one whiff
don’t come near mine or we’ll have a tiff
Luckily on Etsy ,it is for sale
you can get your own in the mail

I haven’t seen my Grammie all week, she is busy with the great one- phooey! I love her so very much, I hope I get to see her soon. I am thankful to have such a wonderful Grammie so I am joining PepiSmart Dog’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop., pet centric

I am not looking forward to the start of July. Mom says it is her “birthday month” and she she bosses Dad around ( more than usual) and she makes Grammie go places with her like book sales. She is quite obnoxious, I could see a week, but a whole month? Wait a minute- July is my birthday month too! Dad, go pick me some fresh nip! Mom, I need fresh water ( every hour) ! Grammie, come see me!!

And the winner if my 4th of July giveaway is Lola the Rescued Cat!

Mom asked me to give you 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.

Friendly Fill-In Statements: Week 8

1. I never thought I would miss _______________________________, but I do.Β 

2. EveryΒ 4th of JulyΒ ______________________________________.

3. If I knew ______________, I would __________________.

4. I have trouble ___________________________.
I am going to rest up for my birthday month now.


    1. You are lucky you get to go outside- we need to depend on Mom and Dad to bring ours in.

  1. July is my human’s birthday month too! She was thinking of maybe taking a trip… with me, of course!

  2. Happy Early Birthday, Phoebe!! Ya gotta catabrate them as long as you can:)
    And of course Birthday wishes to your Mom!

    Meowmy says her head is spinning so she will wait to fill in those blanks…spinning appawrently makes her head blank, too, MOL!

    1. Thank you, it isn’t until the 23rd, but why not celebrate all month πŸ™‚ Phoebe says thank you too.

  3. Good morning, Phoebe! We love your poem – you are better than you think you are!! I’m sure you’ll see your Grammie this weekend! Happy early birthday!! It’s your month so you can take the WHOLE month to celebrate just like your mom!!! We’re excited about Fill-ins tomorrow!! Love to you!

    1. Thank you, you are so sweet Toby. My Grammie better come see me- I love her so very much. We all send our love to all of you. XO

    1. Thank you- that is a good point, we should be spoiled every day like it is our birthday and humans should only get a week tops πŸ™‚

  4. I love your poetry and questions but I’d like to fill in the questions right there on the blanks instead of having to write them down (to remember them!) and then answer, but maybe that’s too hard to achieve.
    I never thought I would miss being a feral cat, but sometimes I do like the great outdoors and its challenges. Still, I’m very happy here with my mama and papa and just a garden to roam in. Mama says if she had know what the sun could do, she would have used more sunscreen!!!
    On the 4th of July we are always in Rome but we grill something anyway and eat watermelon and the Italians just love coming for the celebration.
    If I knew how much I goofed in my youth I would have done a few things differently.
    I have trouble staying awake in this hot, hot weather! Snoozes are for me.

    1. My Mom agrees with you on the sunscreen πŸ™‚ Your 4th of July sounds nice. Thank you for your answers.

  5. So both you and your Mom are going to celebrate for a WHOLE MONTH Phoebe? Wow……my Mom doesn’t even celebrate her “day” ! I think she feels at her age, she should DENY rather than RECOGNIZE it’s her birthday. HAHAHA Hope you have a wonderful birthday month though…..same for your Mom. I bet your Grammie will give you all kinds of presents – oh boy! Your poem is SPECTACULAR – and it’s about everyone’s favorite thing – NIP!

    Hugs, Sammy

    1. My Mom figures you can’t stop the clock so have fun πŸ™‚ And I like to be spoiled too πŸ™‚ I am glad you like my poem, you should give poetry lessons, you are an expert. XO

  6. What a great poem, Phoebe! I hope you and your mom both have a great birthday month, and that your grammie comes to visit you very soon. And I hope there are lots of treats involved. We can’t wait for the Fill-Ins challenge tomorrow! Purrs!

    1. Thank you! I hope Grammie comes soon, I am low on treats, and I miss her too. We look forward to your fill-in answers.

  7. A whole month of birthday celebrating sounds good to us! We’re trying our hand at the poetry today too….you did a LOT better than we did!

    The Florida Furkids

  8. Phoebe, you are quite talented! I love the idea of celebrating for a whole month; think I’ll start that with my next birthday. Hope your grammie comes to visit you soon!

  9. I have a friend that has a birthday month too. All month long every single year. You two enjoy your upcoming birthday month.

    I’ll try to remember to sing happy birthday often next month.

    Have a purrfect day. My best to your wonderful mom. β™₯β™₯β™₯

  11. Happy birthday, Phoebe! That is a great poem – Purrseidon & Mr. M are mega fans of cat-a-bliss blends, too… Purrseidon has her own catnip plant in the garden, but about the only thing she does is lounge in its shade … However, she has been known to make a fool of herself over the Cat-a-bliss sample bag.

  13. Um Phoebe, it sounds as though your Mama and you are a little alike when it comes to birthdays! πŸ™‚ We have birthday weekends but an entire month sounds much better!

    the critters in the cottage xo

  14. Happy birthday next month, both you and your mom! It’s a very special month. You should totally boss around πŸ™‚

  15. Phoebe, we’ve never heard of that brand of catnip. We are going to ask Mom to get us some. Our dopey mom forgot to write a poem for today so we had to post one on Sammy’s blog in a comment. She can be such a ditz-brain. Concats to Lola and Lexy. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  16. That is a very good poem, Phoebe. I hope you and your mom have a lovely birthday month. My dad’s birthday is in July too.

  17. Whoa! TW’s birthday is in July too and now she’s gonna expect us to wait on her all month.
    1. I never thought I would miss Chinese food, but I do cos we haven’t had it in weeks.
    2. Every 4th of July TW and Pop leave me and go downstairs to view the Macy’s fireworks.
    3. If I knew TW’s credit card number, I would order myself a mess of toys and cat furniture.
    4. I have trouble with the fact that the peeps want me domesticated.

    1. Thank you for your answers CK. I bet the fireworks are spectacular, maybe while they are out, you can find the credit card and have fun. πŸ™‚ What day is TW’s birthday?
