Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful for cat grass.

This is the one Mom grew for me and I still have the one Grammie bought for me.I haven’t seen Grammie all week, I miss her I hope she visits me today, I love her so very much.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter E. This week I went with a haiku.

An emergency
really, this is a crisis
my bowl is empty

My Purrince had a commentathon on his birthday to raise money for a feral cat group. I wanted to send him some of my money so Mom and I sent $10. We want to help him raise more money so I got Mom to do some sewing and crocheting.

  We are having a Flash Sale ( don’t I make a cute Flash?)  For anyone that donates $10 to the feral cat group, we will send you a catnip mat and 2 crocheted catnip toys ( a turkey leg and an ice cream cone). We only have 2 of these sets available so if you are interested just say so in the comments and I will send you the paypal information to pay the $10. Sorry, we can only do this for US residents because shipping is too expensive. Thank you to anyone that can help.

This is the fabric for the mats.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. My inner child_____________________.

2. My favorite month is ________________.

3. My favourite commercial is                       , because                                .

4. Personally, I don’t care for                                     .


  1. The Flash outfit is terrific! I’ll have to find out how to grow cat grass–it looks beautiful and I’m sure it is delicious.

    1. Thank you. You can plant your own oat grass seeds or buy it already grown at Petco 🙂

    1. I hope she grows you some grass soon. I did raise the money 🙂 Glad you liked me as The Flash :)XO

    1. I yak it up if I eat too much so Mom watches me and only lets me have a little.

  2. Love your haiku! You’re right – there’s nothing as tragic as an empty food bowl! Thanks for playing along with us on Thursdays poetry day………..I hope your Grammie visits you today!

    Love, Teddy

  3. Mmmm, yummy! We love cat grass around here, too. We always graze it all the way to its roots, though, and the mom here has not a single green thumb. So right now we don’t have any cat grass, even though the mom keeps promising to grow us some more.

    We’d love to donate to your purrince’s charity, Phoebe! Just let us know where to donate!

    1. I pull it out by the roots so Mom watches me and tries to hold it while I pull. 🙂 Thank you so much for donating, Mom will email the information to you.

  4. We would be glad to give $10.00 to that feral group. We are gigantic feral fans. So send me the info. So nice of you to do this. And we agree, an empty bowl is just not right. You all have a good day.

    1. Thank you, that is very sweet of you. We know you have many mouths to feed.XO

  5. I would be happy to donate to the feral cat group… just tell me where to donate. I hope you see your Grammie today, maybe she can get your Dad to get that perch leveled… 😀

    1. I forgot to tell you that I liked your haiku… I hope the empty bowl was promptly filled and crisis was averted. We all know how an empty bowl can be scary… 😀

    2. Thank you, I sold the 2 mats so we are all set. If you do want to donate though just let me know and I will send you the paypal info.Thank you.

  6. I would be happy to donate to the kitty fund … just let me know WHERE I think this blog comment thing shows an alternate email address but I think you have my real email it is just slightly different from what this comment thing shows

    1. Thank you. We already sold the 2 mats so we raised the money we were trying to, but if you still want to donate let us know and we will give you the paypal information. Thank you.

  7. I’m guessing mom has filled that bowl by now. I hope so.

    I hope you see your Grammie today too. I know how much you love her.

    Have a purrfect Thankful Thursday. ☺

  8. It is paw some that you are helping to raise funds for the feral cat group! And Lucy loves cat grass, so we’re starting growing some.

  9. Interesting haiku. Here are my answers for Friendly Fill-Inns.
    1. My inner child likes Disney movies.
    2. My favorite month is December
    3. My favourite commercial is that I have none because they take up to much time from the scheduled program.
    4. Personally, I don’t care for violent or horror movies and a lot of commercials.

    1. Thank you for your answers, I enjoyed them. Disney movies are wonderful and so is December.

  10. Personally, I don’t care for cat grass but to each their own. I grew up in the concrete jungle where they didn’t have grass. I’m gonna try the fill ins on my blog again but they look tough.

    1. I know you can find answers for the fill-ins CK, but Mom should make them more cat friendly. XO

  11. Nice Haiku. ~grin~ Best wishes on the fundraiser.

    As for the fill-ins, I said on McGuffy’s blog that my inner child likes October and the old “Got Milk” commercials while I don’t like advertisements overall. ~grin~ We bypass them using a DVR in this house.

  12. That is some good lookin’ grass and we can see that you are enjoying it. That is a cool poem…did it get the bowl filled, we think it should have. Hugs and nose kisses
