And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Sammy is thankful to be coneless. And I am thankful that his biopsy came back and his nose is fine. It was called an unspecified inflammation ( probably from too many whaps from the other kitties).

I am also thankful that I got accepted into The Cat Writers’ Association. Special thanks toLola and Lexy’s mom, Dawn for sponsoring me.

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:

I know it is not mine
and with that, I am fine.

HI everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Prancie is thankful for the enormous package of prizes that arrived last week. As you know, she won the Easter Bonnet contest at One Spoiled Cat.

She won this great hat-

And all this-

She loves her unicorn. We have to hide it when The Great One is here because she will want it.

Look at all these treats! And she is not planning to share.

She did give this cute pen to her Dad though. Thank you to Teddy and his mom for all these goodies. And thanks to all who voted for Prancie in the contest.

Prancie is so happy that she agreed to write today’s poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:

I already told you I don’t like being wet
if that is what you want, get a dog for a pet.
Have fun in your white river raft ,
I didn’t realize you were so daft.
I will stay here and guard the house,
try to remember to bring me a mouse.

Hi everyone! Before we get started, we want to give our condolences to Wag”nWoof Pets on their loss of beautiful Samantha.

And to The Cat Corner on the loss of their handsome boy, Sammy.

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that Penny and Sammy’s blood work was good. Sammy will have his dental next Thursday and also get that bump on his nose checked. Penny has great teeth for a 10 year old and no dental is needed.

If only this tree could talk,
it was alive before Bach.
I bet it has seen couples stealing kisses
then returning as Mr. and Mrs.

Today is V day for the A-Z Blogging Challenge.V is for vaccines. If your cat is healthy and young, you can get vaccines at clinics much cheaper than going to the vet. Our local shelter does vaccines every Wednesday morning and the pet store also has a few days a month that the same shelter comes to for reduced cost vaccines. You save the cost of an office visit that way, around here that would be $60 and the vaccines are cheaper too than at the vet. I only recommend this for young and healthy because seniors need a thorough exam.

Emmy is thankful to everyone who has helped promote her book. I am thankful too. Don’t forget to take a guess at the number of pennies Penny has on her post on Tuesday for a chance to win a copy of the book.

Here is my poem today for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on  this adorable photo prompt.

Hey big sis , look at me!

One more thing….. I am trying to rescue a kitty that lives in SC. Does anyone know a trucker that travels down there all the way to CT or MA? Or do you know of anyone traveling from an airport in Greenville, SC, Atlanta, GA, Asheville, NC to Hartford, CT? I know this is an odd request, but I figured I would put it out there. Thank you.
