Thankful Thursday

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

A little over a week ago I got a wonderful surprise package in the mail. It certainly brightened my day. Back at the beginning of the year, Bionic Basil’s B-Team decided to send surprise packages to the first 10 people that commented on the post. Thank you for spreading joy. I will try to do the same and pay it forward.

Prancie LOVES the mat and doesn’t feel the need to share. Once in a while, Joanie nabs a corner of it.

And they sent an authentic Kraken tentacle. Trouble and Brody have been battling it constantly. The B-team may want to hire them to help battle the Kraken.

I also want to thank Vicky and Carole for the beautiful sympathy cards. And thank you to all who prayed, purred, and sent sympathies for Noel.It is never easy to lose a beloved cat, but knowing others care makes it easier.

We are also joining   Sammy’s Poetry Day. Here is my poem to go with this photo prompt..

I think you are the prettiest girl in school
marry me or I will jump into a pool.
Silly boy, I can’t marry you
my heart belongs to my daddy and that is true.
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and my co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

The Little Book of Bob: Life Lessons from a Street-wise Cat

Hi everyone! I have a great book to review today. At the end of the post, I have an update on Noel and Prancie and the winner of the Pirate giveaway.

*Disclosure- I was given a copy of The Little Book of Bob: Life Lessons from a Street-wise Cat by James Bowen in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are my own.

I am sure you have all heard of Bob. You have probably read A Street Cat Named Bob or have seen the film. As you know, Bob is an English cat that rescued his human at the same time his human rescued him. This book is short, only 166 pages, but filled with wisdom. The wisdom of Bob and what he has taught James in their years together.

Prancie thinks they may be cousins

I think we would all agree that our cats have taught us how to appreciate life. Bob has done the same for James. Some things he writes about are Our happiness lies within and believe in yourself. He goes on to explain how Bob taught these lessons.

I highly recommend this book for all fans of Bob and cat lovers in general. Release date is October 22nd, you can pre-order on Amazon, click here.

The winners of The Pirate Day giveaway are Charlee and Chaplin of Oceanside Animals. Congratulations!

Noel is hanging in there still. We got very bad news about Prancie this past Friday. The ultrasound showed a tumor on her liver and her gallbladder. The internist feels it is cancer, but the only way to be sure is biopsy and she is to frail for that. She is on prednisone and continuing with fluids. We are praying it buys several months of time. Our hearts are broken. We can’t imagine a world without Prancie in it.

I will try to blog on Thursday and Friday all depending how these two are doing.

 

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone. I am still mostly taking a break, but I wanted to join Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop and Meow Like a Pirate Day! Noel is still  hanging in there ( knock on wood, 3 times). Prancie gave us quite a scare last Friday and she is still not back to her old self. She has an ultrasound Friday. Her kidneys have gotten worse since February, but not enough to have gotten her so dehydrated. We are very worried.She is such a good patient and takes the fluids well. I am thankful she is still with us too.

Joanie and Gremmie are really into Pirate Day.

Noel wanted to join in too.

  Emmy was not thrilled to pose ( as you can see by my arm). We are having a giveaway for Pirate Day. The prize is a copy of Emmy’s book and a Pirate print catnip mat. Sorry I can only afford to ship in the US. To enter just comment on this post before Sunday at 9 PM 9 EST). Winner will be announced Monday ( unless one of my kitties gets sicker).

We are also joining   Sammy’s Poetry Day. Here is my poem to go with this photo prompt.

My ship has sunk
I need to get drunk
I want to sail with the captain with the rum
Captain Morgan will make me less glum
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two. I hope to post tomorrow, depending on the kitties.

Ginger Cat Appreciation Day

Hi everyone! Today is Ginger Cat Appreciation Day. And we sure appreciate our Prancie. We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.

I made a puzzle of her in her she shed to celebrate. Link is below.

If you don’t already have her book, it is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle form. Click here

 Sammy thinks he should be celebrated too being that he has some ginger in him.

Wordless Wednesday

Prancie says. “nobody better burn down my she shed.” *

She even has a chandelier in it.

* She is making fun of the State Farm commercial.

Prancie does have a she shed. Years ago, I had a custom bunk bed made for the cats that has crib sized mattresses. The bottom one has a baby gate on the front of it to keep Prancie in it at night. She has a fluffy blankie, litter box, water, food and toys. We do it for her protection so she won’t climb and get injured at night. Se even has bells on the gate that she rings when she wants to get out. So much for wordless- sorry.

Awww….Monday

Hi everyone! I am only joining one hop today,  Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays.

I have had a lot of helpers with my snowflakes. I am on #93. So close to 100, but the ones at the end are the toughest and take longer. Prancie is helping today. Trouble is banned from helping because she chews through my thread.

I am reading more Happiness books, but Emmy is not happy about it.
