Thankful Thursday

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

Joanie is thankful that her camper is almost ready. It just needs a bunk bed for Gremmie and curtains for the window.

I am thankful that the local library is getting books in from other libraries and allowing curbside pickup. I got 7 books today 🙂

To celebrate Joanie’s camper and my books, we are having a camping themed giveaway.


The prizes include a camper print catnip mat, 2 crocheted marshmallows ( for s’mores) and a paw print mask for your human. Just leave a comment on today’s post before Friday 9 PM ( EST). Sorry, we can only afford US shipping, but anyone can enter. If  a non US winner is chosen, you will receive a $5 Amazon gift card and we will choose another name for the prize package.

We are passing on the poem this week because I got so busy with making the camper and the prizes that I didn’t get a chance to write one. I also forgot to do a post for Cat World Domination Day too. Summer has a fantastic giveaway going for it too- click here.

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.
1. I almost _______________________.
2. I finally _____________________
3. I find _________ very interesting.
4. I have my doubts about _________.


  1. I’ve learned those catnip blankets are the best invention. Both of my girls love them.

  2. The camper is just the greatest thing ever! So are catnip blankets!

  3. Pipo still loves the catnip blankets you sent us/we won:)

    That camper sure looks spiffy!

  4. Such a creative hu-mom here doing some amazing things for all you kitties!

  5. Mom and dad are thankful, too, for the local library’s starting back up the curbside pickup. They visit a few local little libraries scattered around New Hanover County, too, but they’ve gotta have the local branch accessible to them, too!

  6. We can’t wait to see the finished camper – I think it will be FABULOUS! No worries about no poem – lots of people simply aren’t in the poetic mood this week. Looks like a fun giveaway you’re having……!!

    Hugs, Teddy

  7. OH, Mom and I LOVE the camper and it is the more old Air Stream type camper I think. They will be comfy in there on their trips around to see all the CB family. I would love to win, as we all would! I have loved my mats and have them out right now, every day. One even got to the V-e-t with me. Those marshmallows are da bomb! Your mommy is so inventive.
    Mom said she has seen cat masks out and about and they are perfect! Makes it nicer wearing one.

    1. Thank you. Yes, it is a vintage camper 🙂 I have a cat one someone made for me and I get lots of compliments 🙂 XO

  8. That camper is darling! A bright spot in the midst of chaos… a nice gift of lightheartedness!

  9. I really wish I had some s’mores! And a nip mat for my floor!
    The mask with the cute paws would look nice on the people’s jaws … (?? LOL)
    You are so kind in all you do and I truely apprecate you!!

    on an unrelated note:

    1. That was a great poem! Thank you for your kind words. Wow 17 days! 🙂

  10. We’ll bet that camper will be a big hit! Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  11. The camper is fabulous. Scouts Raz and Allie would put that camping prize package to good use!!
