Thankful Thursday and a Poem

Hi everyone! So you saw the stupid card Mom made. The top photo yesterday was Snowball and the bottom one was Polar Bear. The biggest mistake on that card was suck up Brody was in the spot I wanted-phooey!

100_9966  Here is a bigger photo of me in my new Christmas dress.

I saw Grammie on Wednesday and I will see her on Friday, I love her so very much . I am thankful that I got to see her. I am also thankful that my friend Snowy let me be on his fundraiser calendar. There is still time to order one if you want, purchasing helps pets and kids. Click here.

For Sammy’s poetry day, we are starting with A again as he had planned and now that he is an angel, I thought I would write a poem about angels.

Our angels are always watching us
they are not like those elves I could toss under a bus.
They are there to keep us safe and sound
sometimes they help us not fall on the ground.
So when you miss a loved one
remember that love is never done.
They are just now angels from the sky
and they will always be close by.

Don’t forget the Festivus party is next Friday. No one has sent me any photos of them on a pole or wrestling 🙁  Mom saw a real Festivus pole at Bed, Bath and Beyond today, but she was too cheap to buy it.

And here are the fill-ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

1. My favorite Christmas Song(s) is/are_____________________, but I could do without hearing _____________________ever again.

Festivus Details and Lots More

Hi everyone! I have a lot to tell you about today. I saw Grammie on Wednesday and I can’t wait to see her again, I love her so very much.

100_4943 It is a little chilly. Do I look OK in this hat?

Now for the Festivus details. The party will be on Friday, December 23rd. I will ask that you air your grievances in the comments. Cats can complain about everything, humans can complain about anything except cats ( it’s my party so my rules).

For the “feats of strength”, if you have a photo of you with a pole or wrestling please send it to me with permission to share it on the 23rd. My email is I will have a giveaway that day for all who comment. I hope you will all join the party.

Now it is time for Sammy’s Poetry Day and it breaks my heart he isn’t here for Z. This is for you, my friend.

My friend Sammy had a zest for life,
though he never took a wife
he had a special gal
and he was everyone’s pal.
May we all learn from him
let’s jump into life and swim.


I am having a giveaway for one of Mom’s crocheted pickle plus a glass pickle and some blank letters to Santa for you to fill in. Just comment on this post to be entered. I will announce the giveaway Sunday.

Selfie Sunday with Phoebe

Hi everyone!  I know I look a little funny, but these earmuffs really do help block out the sound of Mom’s caterwauling singing Christmas music. 100_9919

Speaking of Christmas, I got my first card already and it is from my Purrince.

100_9921 Sorry, I blocked his photo, I was kissing him.

My shades made it to Cat Scout Charles and we thank his Mom for this photo. charles

They still have a lot more places to go so don’t worry if you signed up, they will get to you- someday.

I haven’t seen my Grammie since Wednesday. I love her so very much, I hope I see her soon.

Have any of you ever heard of Festivus? It was started on Seinfeld, my Mom loves to watch that show even though she has seen every episode a bazillion times. 100_9922

I am thinking of having a Festivus party. We would get to air our grievances about our folks and then have a feats of strength contest with a pole. Is anyone interested? It would be on December 23rd.

And the winner of our my Thanksgiving giveaway for a catnip mat, crocheted turkey leg and pilgrim hat is It’s All About the Cats!  Congratulations!
