Hi everyone! Sorry I am so tired and weak from lack of treats ( Mom is rationing them).
I am thankful that I have a stash of treats, if only I could get them out of the package myself. I am thankful for Grammie too, I love her so very much even if she didn’t come inside to say hello to me when she picked up Mom yesterday.
Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop
Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day.
I love all treats
they is all I wants to eats.
Give me Temptations and Party Mix
make sure you give me more than six.
I have yet to meet a treat I don’t like
regular food can take a hike.
Sammy is posingwith the Whale for the A-Z Blogging Challenge. It must be a baby whale, it is kind of small. I am sure The Trout Talking Tabbies will approve of this one.
Mom is participating in Wandering Through the Shelves Thursday Movie Picks, TV edition:police- here are her 3 chocies:
- Shades of Blue- Currently is season 2, this show with Ray Liotta and J-Lo is well written and the acting is so good.
- Life on Mars ( 2006) – British TV series that ran for 2 seasons. A police officer gets in an accident that somehow sends him back to the 1970’s.
- Life on Mars ( 2008)- American remake that was just as good as the original. The character development and 1970’s costumes were fantastic.
And here are The Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.
1. A book I would like to see made into a movie is ______________________________
2. If I could afford a billboard, it would say ______________________________
3. I have a hard time .
I love your treat poem – in fact, it got a paws up from ALL the kitties here.
Thank you Summer 🙂
Saphera shares you pain … due to her weight, she has been on a very strict diet for months… while she has lost some weight and is now walking more, she rarely gets treats… and even for holidays, she only gets one small thing.
I need to gain weight though so I should get all the treats I want- right?
Aww…Phoebe! You peaked little girl. You have to trust Mom, though. She loves you.
Sammy, you look like a professional model! Wow!
Thank you and Sammy thanks you too. XO
It’s Thursday, already?!
I’m not much of a treat kitty but I guess if I were used to getting them, I’d miss them.
You don’t like treats? Wow!
What a cute whale! Yes a baby one,MOL! Can it spout like grown up ones??
Phoebe I hope you get a good ration of treats, are there not some kinds that are well, you know for dieting kitties? We get a grain free kind (Well, only Pipo cause Minko won’t eat any kind of treats, MOL!), and they are less calories and better.
Thank you 🙂 No, it doesn’t spout up, it is just a baby 🙂
Rationing the treats??? What the fluff? We protest on your behalf!
Thank you- I hope mom gives me more.
Oh no, Phoebe, we hope you don’t just float away on the wind from lack of treats! We sure do like your ode to treats. Evan is a treat fiend, and Temptations and Party Mix are his favorites. And that whale, it’s just too cute! Now, we’re off to go fill in those wonderful fill-ins. Purrs!
Thank you. And mom is glad you like the whale too 🙂
Oh you poor starving girl! Your Mom is rationing the treats your Grammie gives to you? That sounds just plain WRONG….! Gifts from Grammie shouldn’t be on the chopping block – she gave them to YOU!!!!! Oh well….what’s a girl to do? We love your poem today – it’s fabulous…..! We’ll be joining up for Fill-ins tomorrow………….
It is so wrong. Glad you like the poem 🙂 I look forward to your fill-ins 🙂 XO
Ellen, what a cute poem and the whale is adorable! Happy a2zing and have a whale of a day. 🙂
Art Sketching Through the Alphabet “W” (Walking Dead & Waves).
Thank you 🙂
Now be sure and eat some regular food, too. ~nods~ Everyone needs a balanced diet. Cute whale, by the way.
I like these questions! You make me think.
1. A book I would like to see made into a movie is my short story series.
2. If I could afford a billboard, it would say ‘Be Excellent to One Another’.
3. I have a hard time caring about housework.
4. I really enjoy writing.
~grin~ Be well!
Thank you for your answers, I enjoyed them. I hope your stories can be made into a movie someday. I like your billboard and I am with you on #3.
A very nice baby whale, and i agree with the poem. If i could eat nothing but snacks and treats and stay healthy, i would do it!
Thank you 🙂
A poem about capital T-reats seems perfect for you Phoebe! Maybe Grammie could talk to your Mom about you wasting away from lack of treats! Sammy and the baby whale! Good Morning!
Thank you 🙂 I hope I see Grammie soon.
I’m sorry you’re so weak from the lack of treats. Mom is only doing what the vet wants.
I’m sorry grammie didn’t come in to see you. That had to be awful.
I love your poem and having it about treats is purrfect.
Have a puffect day. My best to your wonderful mom. ☺
Thank you. I hope I see Grammie soon. My mom sends her best. XO
Oh No, No treats, that is not good. Sammy that is such a cute baby whale. And the poem is just perfect. We don’t get many treats around here either. Hope things get better for you soon, Phoebe.
Thank you. We have so many treats in the house and I am being deprived.
Sweet Sammy that is a terrific poem about treats. Too bad treats don’t have all the nourishment in them that you need so you could eat all you want. Keep feeling and doing better sweetie. Hugs and nose kisses
Thank you 🙂 I hope you are feeling better too. XO
Please don’t give my Mom any ideas about rationing treats!! MOL! Love, Cody
We wish we could get the treats out of the containers, too.
That would be nice 🙂
We loved your poem Phoebe! It’s so true for us too.
Thank you for the fill-ins.
Shoko and Kali
Thank you 🙂 I look forward to your fill-in answers.
Six treats! I hope you don’t eat them all at once or you will be sick! My oldest cat Marigold is really liking treats, and tries to find and open the bag!
I would do that too, but my mom hides it in a drawer-phooey!
Bravo your Ode to Treats is superb!!!
Hugs madi your bfff
Thank you. XO

Thank you 🙂 I knew you would like the whale. XO
Your poems are always great. You are so talented. I for sure need them more frequently than my humans give them to me. I may have to go on strike with laptime.
Thank you 🙂 I don’t do laps, but I do sit next to my humans so I may cut back on that. XO
OMC Phoebe, I think you need some furresh nip to survive your rationing? We loved your poem…so approppiate as well?Pawkisses for a Happy Day?❤
That is a good idea-and some cat grass too 🙂 Glad you liked my poem, thank you. XO
Phoebe, I just fished you out of my spam box. Sometimes wordpress doesn’t know who is who anymore I suppose…sigh?Extra Pawkiss fir the inconvenience❤
Thank you for rescuing me from SPAM. It has been doing that to me all day on wordpress blogs. Thanks for the extra pawkisses. XO
That’s a wonderful poem ! Purrs
Thank you 🙂
Phoebe, you are a bit of a drama queen, no?! LOL, you are adorable!
Maybe a little 🙂 I will agree with the adorable.
Such a cute – and funny – treat poem! Who doesn’t love treats?
Thank you 🙂
Your poem is too cute! I hope your mom stops being stingy with the treats soon 🙂
Awww you make a beautiful kitty ball, Phoebe. Our Angel Callie loved balling up like that to sleep, too. We sure miss her.
Your poem is very nice. I am sorry that your mommy has to ration your treats. Maybe it won’t always have to be this way. I’m also sorry that Grammie didn’t come inside to see you this trip, but maybe she will be able to next time.
What a cute little whale Sammy has.
Have a blessed evening.
Thank you. I hope Grammie visits me soon. We hope you have a blessed evening too.
That’s a great poem, Phoebe. Our mom is really stingy with treats – we feel your pain.
She isn’t stingy with the treats she feeds herself though 🙂
Dang sweetie, those hidden treats aren’t nearly as tasty! Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
I know 🙁 Thanks for hosting.
Your mom picked some good shows. I didn’t see the British version but I liked the AMerican version of Life on Mars. Unfortunately, I only saw a couple of episodes. I haven’t seen the show with J-Lo but maybe I will give it a chance. Love the cute poem and the pussy cat is a sweetie. I always enjoy watching movies and creating cards or a scrapbook.
Thank you. J-Lo’s show is really good and she is a great actress.
Pawsome poem….we can’t believe your Grammie came by and didn’t say hi to you!
The Florida Furkids .
Thank you. I was shocked that Grammie didn’t come in.
I haven’t seen the Ray Liotta/J-Lo show though I like Liotta well enough, just not enough hours in the day.
We match!! I didn’t expect to really match with anybody this week and especially with Life on Mars! I’ve been meaning to watch the English version but haven’t gotten there yet. I just love the American one though. I was terribly disappointed it was so short-lived.
Aside from that I went with a show I won’t miss when it played originally and one of the classics of the genre
Life on Mars (2008)-In present day New York City detective Sam Tyler (Jason O’Mara) is pursuing a suspect when he’s struck by a car. When he awakens he finds himself in the same spot but it’s 1973! Already dressed in 70’s clothing he heads to his precinct where he’s mistaken for a transfer and put to work, now he has to figure out what happened while adjusting to his new surroundings and still chasing criminals alongside cops that have rougher methods than he’s use to. Intriguing series has a great cast, Harvey Keitel, Michael Imperioli and Gretchen Mol among others, terrific period detail and soundtrack but fell victim to poor scheduling which lead to its short duration.
Wiseguy (1987-1990)-Government agent Vinnie Terranova (Ken Wahl) is fresh out of jail where he was placed by the Organized Crime Bureau (OCB) to give him a criminal history to enable him to go deep undercover to break up big syndicates. Guided by his often exasperated but understanding boss Frank McPike (Jonathan Banks) and wheelchair bound remote liaison “Lifeguard” (Jim Byrnes) he sets out to crime bust while trying to keep his secret from his mother (Elsa Raven). Excellent series told its stories in multi episode half season arcs focusing on one set of characters. All were good but the initial season’s two arcs dealing with the empire led by Sonny Steelgrave (a commanding performance by Ray Sharkey) and the draconian deeply twisted Profitt siblings (two showpiece turns by Kevin Spacey and Joan Severance) are by far the best.
Dragnet (1951-1959/1967-1970)-“Dum…da.dum…dum-Ladies and Gentleman the story you are about to see is true, the names have been changed to protect the innocent….This is the city-Los Angeles, California…I work here, I’m a cop…my partner’s Frank Smith, my boss is Captain Glavas my name is Friday.”
So began every episode of this Jack Webb series which he created and in which he starred giving a performance of amazing stolidness handing out his standard catch phrase “Just the facts, mam”. Initially taking a documentary approach before switching to a more standard form of storytelling of solving crimes this is the granddaddy of police procedurals.
I was disappointed that Life on Mars didn’t last long, it was so well done. If you get a chance, you should check out the English version, it is just as well done and a little different. Dragnet is a good choice too and I didn’t see Wiseguy, but it sounds good too.
Your poem about treats
Just can’t be beat. 🙂
Thank you 🙂
We love how devoted you are to treats, Phoebe. 🙂
I am hopelessly devoted to them 🙂
I haven’t seen any of your picks.
I highly recommend all 3.
I haven’t seen any of your TV picks, but I’ve seen Life On Mars on a few other lists today. I’ll have to look into it.
It was well done.
You really are a fun and clever poet! We all agree with your treat pome!
Happy Thankful Thursday!
Marjorie and the Dash Kitten Crew
Thank you. 🙂
Oh my gosh. Poor herd babe not getting enough treats. How very unfair!
