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.

  1. Aww, sorry that Prancie isn’t feeling well either.

    Noel made a sweet little pirate!

    Emmy must have been thinking Argghh!! MOL!

    Your pirate poem made us giggle, and now petcretary says she wants a drop of some rum…Yum! Yargh!
    Those fill ins sound interesting.

  2. Oh everyone looks just grand in their pirate costumes! We also think your poem is purrfect – and FUN too! We send big hugs of hope for Prancie and Noel.

    Love, Teddy and Mom

  3. We are thankful for news of Noel … and are putting paws together for Prancie! As for all the “pirates … ahoy sweet friends” !

  10. Joanie did a great job at being a pirate. We can see that Noel and Emmy would rather have been doing something else. Really enjoyed your poem. Mom says a little Captain Morgan definitely makes her feel better. Prayers continue for Noel and Prancie. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

  11. Keep the faith…for Noel and Prancie. We have the POTP we are givng to you. The others make fine pirates. Emmy looked wonderful even if she just couldn’t get into Pirate Day this year. Your poem made us giggle.


  12. Charlee: “I am glad you guys are hanging in there. I am sending lots of purrs for Noel and Prancie to do well. I have extra pull on Talk Like A Pirate day so you know my purrs will be extra powerful right now.”
    Chaplin: “Why is that, exactly?”
    Charlee: “Because my name is Chaaaaaaarrrrlee!”
