Thankful Thursday

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

Sammy is thankful he lives in  a warm house so he doesn’t need to wear this coat which is a little too small for him. I am thankful that I am getting a new sewing machine for Christmas and my Mom is letting me use it early to finish a few mats I promised to people. Then I will let her wrap it 🙂

Here is our poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this cute photo. I let my Sammy write this one being that his poem last week was so well received.

Sometimes we all feel small like an ant,
a mountain to climb that we just can’t.
All you need to do change your mind,
no need to stay confined.
One can accomplish anything,
except maybe become a king.
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.
1. I can’t wait to have _______________________ on Thanksgiving ( if not in the USA, substitute your next holiday).
 
2. I am thankful for ____________________________-.

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

 I am thankful for this great toy our friends at Eel Creek Chronicles sent to us. It is for us all to share, but I have been hogging it.

Mom said I had to write a poem to go with this photo. I have had a class in poetry at Cat Scouts camp last summer. Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day.

Is this a sign for a car or boat?
I think someone opened the moat.
All I know is I am glad I am not there,
I would rather get caught in my underwear.

Now if someone would just open them for me .

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day to go with this photo.

Peace and quiet
no sounds from a riot.
No radio or tv
not even a buzzing bee.
No honking from cars,
must be like Mars.
Not even the sound of a bike
I wonder what that is like?

I am thankful Mom went to IKEA yesterday and stocked up on mice and rats. We will use some in giveaways. I iz mad she went to Cheesecake Factory and didn’t bring me any cheesecake though.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day to go with this photo. Gremmie and I wrote it together.

A bike for one,
sure that is fun.
A bike for two

How about a bike for three?
All pedal fast if we see a bee.
And how about a bike for four?
That would never be a bore.
But, a bike for five?
That would be fun to drive.

Remember Me Thursday

HI everyone! Today is a very special day, Remember Me Thursday. Now in the sixth year, it is a day to remember all those pets in shelters. Our friends at Lola The Rescued Cat and Three Chatty Cats are hosting the blog hop.

Three of my current kitties came from shelters, everyone else was given to me or just showed up.

Back in 2010, I went to adopt Sammy not knowing he had a sibling. The minute i saw her, I had to adopt her too. It still bothers me that their 3rd sibling had already been adopted. They had been together for almost 5 years at that point and it breaks my heart to see families separated ( human and fur).

My KaChoo went to the Rainbow Bridge in 2010 and I wanted another mitted tabby so I searched Petfinder and found Little Tiger in 2012. I renamed her KaTwo. I know why she was at the shelter for 2 years, because she has feline hyperesthesia. She can seem a bit scary when she is having a fit, chasing her tail, but most of the time, she is very sweet and loving.

My Angel Snowball also came from the same shelter. I saw her in 2012 and kept checking on her and was finally able to adopt her in 2013. Sadly, she had congestive heart failure and left us last year. She was from a hoarding situation and not into people, but she loved her Phoebe.

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop I am thankful for all the kitties I just wrote about and all that I have been blessed with.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day to go with this photo:

In this photo we see an older couple,
perhaps their bodies are no longer supple.
If you ask him what he sees, his eyes will open wide
and he will tell you that is his young bride.
If you ask her about her mate
she’ll tell you from day one she knew it was fate.
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.
1. A  ________________ will ___________________.
 
2. The best time of the day is __________________.
3. _________ is not my strong suit.
4. It’s all fun and games until _________.
And the winner of Prancie’s Prayer is Laila! I am having a Goodread giveaway starting on the 29th, I will post a link soon.

Happy Birthday Joanie and Sammy!

I am thankful for Joanie and Sammy who are turning 13 today. I wanted cake ( any excuse for cake) , but later today they will get their gifts and treats. We will show those photos tomorrow.

Millie and Penny are thankful they get to be the kitties to use this cool fountain we won from Lola. It is a Petmate Fresh Flow Rain fountain that is battery operated.  It shuts off automatically and turns back on every 15 minutes. Of course, I am not one to read directions so I thought it was broken when it stopped and I couldn’t get it to start again.My hubby solved that mystery.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day to go with this photo:

Before there was tv and internet
this hobby would keep you out of debt.
It will take you anywhere
even face to face with a bear.
Luckily, we still have books
even if some are stored on nooks.
Whenever you want to get away
just open a book and enjoy your day.

Hi everyone, Emmy here, I refused to open my eyes for the photo. I am punishing mom for schlepping me off to the cardiologist yesterday. It is a whole hour away! Right across the street is a butterfly conservatory and my folks wouldn’t take me. They claim no pets are allowed- I call that discrimination.

My heart is pretty much the same with a mild increase in left atrial size, but I am stable.. I will take my meds every 12 hours now instead of every 24. I don’t need to go back for another check for 9 whole months though.Mom is thankful that I am not significantly worse.She is also thankful that we have such a good cardiologist available for me.

KaTwo is mom’s reading buddy so she is thankful to have her very own library card to Amber’s library. If you love to read, you can get one too. Click here. We love Amber’s book reviews and look forward to her reviewing Prancie’s Prayer.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day to go with this photo:

crisp fall air is here
leaves of orange and red too
sit here and enjoy

Prancie and I are thankful that our book is in print, well, this is the copy we need to check then it will be ready in 6 weeks.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day to go with this photo:

Playgrounds are lots of fun
a place to play and run.
You can swing real high
with your folks nearby.
Don’t forget the see-saw and merry-go-round
so much to do-look around!
And for the most fun ride,
don’t forget the slide.
