#JHC Day 5 and Poetry

Hi everyone! 100_9624 Mary M was the only one who noticed I had a bandage on in this photo yesterday. That other carrier was for me-phooey! I had to have blood stolen to test my thyroid again ( we get results later today). At least it was a pretty pink with glitters.

My Dad got me a big container of treats, he is so sweet. He even said I didn’t have to share, but mean Mom said I do have to share. I saw Grammie on Wednesday, I love her so very much. And I will see her again today too.

Today is Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter Q. I have written a haiku about the talented kitty artist Quint.

Keep your Picasso
your Renoir and Van Gogh too!
We prefer a “Quint”


Last year, someone surprised us with a Quint painting and we finally have the perfect frame for it. Noel is posing with it.


Today’s word for the #JHC is candy and Mom’s favorite snack this time of year is orange kit kats. Here is Prancie, our orange kit kat posing with one.dscf2618

They are actually white chocolate and only available at Target.


And here are 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.

2. An unanswered prayer I am thankful for is _______________________.

Phoebe Thursday

Hi everyone! I hope you all realized that photo you saw of me with Brody yesterday was clearly photoshopped. dscf2622-2 OK, I admit it, Brody is starting to grow on me like a wart. I got to see Grammie Tuesday and Wednesday. I love her so very much! I spent lots of quality time in the kitchen with her and we played cards.

Today is Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter P so Mom decided to write a poem for all 3 of us girl kitties that have names that start with P. Polar Bear will have to wait for his poem.


The day I met you, it was love at first sight
sadly, I couldn’t bring you home that night.
With you I was smitten
but, you were going to have a kitten
For three months I had to wait
all the while begging my mate.
Then one day he gave in
I went to get you with my kin
You were full of trust
needing no time to adjust
all the other cats loved you
and you loved them too.
Phoebe, I love you with all my heart
I never want to be apart.


You showed up on
the coldest night of the year
and warmed our hearts.


I found a Penny
I picked her up and now
I have such good luck.


Today is the next to the last day for P.S.Annie’s 19-Somethin Challenge.The question is:Were you into Star Trek or Star Wars or both? Mom wasn’t into either—until she met Dad and he had her watch all the Star Trek movies ( she fell asleep for some). Now she is quite the Trekkie and decorates Dad’s Star Trek Christmas Tree for him every year. To see it click here

Hi everyone! I am in a mood.DSCF2449

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter M. Mine is a haiku titled MAD.

I am Mad at Mom

She told Grammie no more treats

until Halloween!!!!!

Can you believe that? She said we need to ration these to last until then- PHOOEY!!!! I haven’t seen Grammie since Sunday and now she is going to be busy with ” The Great One” so I don’t get to see her until Saturday. I love her so very much too!


Plus I caught Snowball and Prancie having a meeting with suck-up Brody.

Mom wrote about him this month too for The Daily Mews: Click here

Today’s question for P.S. Annie’s 19-Somethin’ Challenge is, what celebrity death upset you the most? Mom says she remembers Elvis died when she was 8, but she wasn’t really upset about it.

And here are 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.

Phoebe’s Poem and Much More

Hi everyone! This has been an exciting week. I got to see my Grammie Monday night and Wednesday. I love her so very much.

My friend Toby saw my post on Sunday and decided to give me a gold medal on my bathing even though I was past the deadline- isn’t he sweet?


I have also joined my friend Nellie on Smoke and Joe’s campaign, I am the speech writer. Phobe_15andMeowingThis is my official ID.

And now for my friend Sammy’s Poetry Day with the letter K:


Simple as a purr

to show someone you care

do something today



Someone ( who wants to remain Anonymouse) sent mom a gift card for The Tiniest Tiger and she was able to get these 2 beautiful purses. Mom was very touched that someone was so thoughtful. I know fashion and these are nice bags, they have cute little metal cat paws on the bottom and the black one has lace paw prints all around the top.

For P.S. Annie’s Throwback Thursday I have a photo from 2010, Joanie with Ricky the rabbit:

joaniebunnyShe had bunny ears on and was pretending to be a bunny too. Ricky rabbit lived to be 13 years old which is a very long time for a bunny. Throwback Thursday

And one more thing—the fill-ins for tomorrow, you know the drill. Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2:

1. I wish ________________ would bring back ____________________.

2. An act of kindness that I do often is __________________________.

3.  I still have                           from my childhood

 4.  If I didn’t have___________________ , I’d be completely lost.



Cat Shaming? I Don’t Think So!

Hi everyone! Look at this book Mom got from the library.

DSCF1789 Have you ever heard of something so mean? It is filled with photos of cats wearing signs that tell what naughty things they have done. Mom best not plan to do that to us. I got a lot on her that I could shame her with. For example, just the other night, I caught her on Amazon looking at pillow cases with Nic Cage on them. I had to stop her, I don’t think Dad would like that.

I got to see my Grammie yesterday! I love her so very, very, very much.

I wrote a Haiku poem for my Dad because today is my friend, Sammy’s poem day and he is on the letter D.

I love Dad so very much

He brings me fresh nip

and is generous with treats


Have you checked out Winnie’s Wish Auction? More stuff is being added all the time.

Thank you for all the purrs and prayers for Sammy. He is still a conehead wearing the cone, but he is feeling much better.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for Friday. Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2:
