Poetry and More

Hi everyone! Today is Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter L and my Mom has written a special poem, but first I want to clear something up. Some of you asked if Brody had a selfie on Monday. He did and I purposely, accidentally omitted him. So for all you fans of the suck up, Brody here is his selfie.


Grammie was here on Wednesday, I love her so very much. And she brought me us another pound of Party Mix.


Here is Mom’s poem about Lucy:

You loved to hiss
the litter box you’d often miss.
You were always on my lap
or on the bed we’d take a nap.
You always had lots of splainin to do,
you would have moved the football on Charlie Brown too.
My life is no longer the same,
I miss calling your name.
We had to say goodbye last Fall,
Lucy, I miss you most of all.

Over the Rainbow Bridge, Lucy

I can’t believe it has been almost a year since Lucy went to The Rainbow Bridge.

Mom is joining a new challenge for September hosted by P.S.Annie and McClendon Villa

It is called 19-Somethin’ . The first question is :What movie could you, or did you see over and over again when you were a teenager? My Mom reminded me that when I was 13, I couldn’t stop watching Annie. When I was older, Dirty Dancing was watched countless times. And of course, Peggy Sue Got Married, my all time favorite movie and when I first fell in love with Nicolas Cage.

Mom also wants me to give you the fill-ins for tomorrow, she came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

It’s My Day!

Hi everyone, I am so excited! It is my 13th Gotcha Day and my 14th birthday ( birthday is a guesstimate). My Purrince sent me a beautiful card and promised me a poem too.

Bday card fur Phoebe And my good friends, Pipo and Minko made me a pretty card too:


I hope my Grammie is going to visit me today, I love her so very much. She is busy with “the great one” though- phooey!

Today is Sammy’s poetry day featuring the letter E. I have written a Clerihew poem, I just learned what one is from my friend Toby if you want to learn about them click here.

Eloise is my Grammie’s cat

she is a bit of a brat.

When anyone visits she hides,

she doesn’t want to go for any rides.

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:

Friendly Fill-Ins, Week 9, July 8, 2016:

1. ___________________ was easier than I expected.

2. Bucket list: 1. _____________________  2. _______________________ 3. ______________________.

3. I cannot believe                                            .

Selfie Sunday : Celebrating the 4th!

Hi everyone! My birthday month is off to a great start. My purrince wrote me a poem:

A Poe-em fur Buttercup Phoebe

There are buttercups inn thee field,
Their beeutee doess yield….
Peeple come frum far an wide
to stand by thee buttercupss’ side.

Mee has mee own buttercup sweet,
Frum the tip of her nose to thee tipss of her feet.
There iss not other flower for mee,
Phoebe buttercup yur thee onlee one mee can see.

Mee luv fur you will blossom an grow,
like a flower mee can plant an sow…..

Phoebe buttercup always mine…
Beautifull gurl; so sweet an fine.

He is a great poet! And my Grammie came to see me! And she brought me treats! I love my Grammie so very, very much. And my treats cost more than “the great ones” so take than great grand-baby.

I am a little mad at my Mom, a company that rents toys offered to send us one to review their company and she told them we don’t play with children’s toys. I would have loved to test one out, they had American Girl Dolls and their accessories are just my size or a Hex Bug would be fun to chase- phooey! I am the star of this blog, I should get to make the decisions.

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.

PepiSmartDog.com, 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!

Phoebe’s Poem

Hi everyone! Today is the day my friend Sammy writes a poem for his blog. I am not an expert poet like he is, but I gave it a try.  I love my Grammie so very much that I wanted to write one for her.

How Do I Love Grammie?

by Phoebe

How do I love my Grammie?
Let me count the ways.
I love you more than treats and party mix.
More than window whiffs and sun beams
and cat grass and my daily nip fix
How many ways was that?
I hope you counted because I can’t
I am just a beautiful cat.

DSCF1656 (2)

My friends, Pipo and Minko wrote one to help me and they did a great job:

I love my Grammie
She visits and we play.
She treats me, too.
I wish she’d always stay!

I do wish she would always stay- we would have so much fun.

Mom asked me to post the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. She came up with the first 2 and McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2. Maybe some week she will let me come up with some.

WEEK 7: June 24, 2016…

2. I am excited about ______________________________________.
3. _____ first, then _____.
4. One time, I _____, that’s why _____.

Phoebe’s Giveaway

Hi everyone! Thank you so much for all the pity yesterday, I really appreciate it. We got our Chewy item to review yesterday. it is dental treats. Do you think that if I eat the whole bag that I can skip my dental? 019

I haven’t seen my Grammie in days and I love her so very much.

My purrince  wrote me a beautiful poem:

Yur poe-etick Purrince, Siddhartha Henry xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Please pray for him because he has a special vet appointment today. I love him so very much.

Now for that giveaway, it is for Valentine’s Day. Comment today through Saturday, comment once a day for more chances. There is a catnip mat, 2 crocheted catnip toys and a crocheted eyeglass holder for your Mom ( or Dad- hope he likes pink 🙂 ).


PS: The feral got fixed yesterday and she went back to the people who trapped her. They are going to try to keep her inside. Mom got some scratches and bruises attempting to get her back in the trap so this kitty has a long way to go to be tame. Mom saw at least 5 more cats that need to be fixed too and she is going to do it as they trap them.



Thursday with Phoebe

Happy Thursday everyone! 001

Grammie was here on Monday so lots of treats were had by all. I love my Grammie so very, very much. And guess what? Mom and Dad are going to a wedding on Saturday so Grammie will be here to watch us again.

My brother Sammy shipped out ( the flat version) to visit 3 more Scout families yesterday. I will show you photos as they come in.

Yesterday, the tabbies celebrated NOMS day. That means Not of my Species- I would rather celebrate NOMS as in food-MOL. If you want to check it out, here is the link: http://tabbycatclub.blogspot.com/

Mee heart soars high

You took mee breath away.

My Purrince even sent me some moussies from his moussie army to keep me safe. And some balls and spring toys too. And some Greenies 🙂 He is a very sweet purrince. When he had his party he chose a song for me. I am not having a party, but I want to dedicate a song to him:

I want to thank you all for being my friend. The only way this day could be better would be if my Grammie visits me ( and brings me treats)- I love her so very much.

And the winner of the shark hat and catnip toys is : The Island Cats ( http://www.island-cats.com/ ) . Looks like you guys are going to be wearing the shark hat after all- MOL!

See you Thursday – I will tell you about the Monster.
