Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that all of you have been so accepting of me. I know I will never be as fun as Phoebe, but I will try my best.

And to thank you all , I am having a giveaway. Just comment on today’s post for a chance to win. I will announce the winner on Sunday so you have until Saturday night 9pm (EST) to enter. The prize is this ghost print catnip mat and 2 crocheted catnip ghosts.

Brody wants me to tell you how he caught two bats and a rat

   Shhh! Please don’t tell him they are Halloween decorations. Mom wasn’t too happy he de-tailed the rat.

Now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter S.

Some spiders are hairy
and some are scary.
Some a really big,
but most are smaller than a twig.
We have all kinds in this house
maybe I will hide one in mom’s blouse.

And now 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. If I was a ghost, I would haunt ____________________.

2. I always _________________ when _______________.

3. My favourite scary story is                               .

4. I will be so glad when                           .



  1. Am I first? I love that ghost mat and the toys! I’m still loving my ice cream cone. Concats for winning Summer’s haunted house. It will look great with all your decorations.

    1. Good luck in the giveaway. Thank you, we are so excited about the haunted house scratcher 🙂

  2. Prancie, please don’t compare yourself to Phoebe. We loved her for who she is, and we love you for who you are! Great poem. You all make me smile. I needed this, it has been a rough week. Too much work! HUGS.

  3. Of course we loves you. You, and your blogging style are unique.
    p.s. I don’t want to be in your give away because I have no appreciation for catnip. 🙂

  4. I, Marvelous think you are doing a wonderful job!
    And those spiders are great! I would LOVE to wrestle with them!

  5. You sure are doing a great job with the blog. Too bad that rat losing it’s tail. That is a really big spider. You all have a super day.

  6. Heeheehee! Love the spider poem, i am an arachnophile.

    So sorry that the rat was de-tailed, i wonder if it can be repaired.

    You do a great job with the blog, and i will bow out of the give-away since i already won earlier this year.

  7. A ghostie mat would lay out flat
    I think my kitties would sit on that
    we have some ghostie nip toys
    and some eyeballs that bring us joys (joys?? )
    it’s been almost a year since I put them away
    time to bring them out so the kitties can play
    (I think I need more coffee)

  8. Wonderful poem, good luck hiding the spider!
    We would love the ghost mat and we might even share.

    Sending purrs

  9. Prancie, you are purrfect and special in your very own way, just like Phoebe was purrfect and special in her own way. We love hearing from you and think you are doing a wonderful job.

    That ghost mat and those ghost toys are too cute! And Brody treats Halloween decorations just like Eddy does here at our house. Oh, and your poem is spooktacular! This here human is terrified of spiders, but your poem still made her smile. Purrs to you!

  13. The rat will never miss the tail…no worries there. Your poem on spiders was good. We love spiders here and try to cultivate a nice home for them….outside not in. Spiders kill anrts for food so we like this.

    Thanks for tomorrow’s fill-ins ladies.

    -Roby and the Real Cats

  18. Prancie, you are a cutie and you are doing a fine job. You are doing things your way and we love you for you! Laughing at Brody and the rat without the tail. You might want to think twice about hiding a spider in your Mom’s blouse! Your giveaways are such a nice thing to do… I am going to pass on this as we have no kitty and no family or friends that we could gift it to.

  19. OMC Mommy hates spiders. It’s amazin’ how such a small critter can take down somepawdy as big as our mommy. But take her down they do. She loses all compurrsure and screams. MOL By da way, you’re lookin’ gawjus Prancie. Give our entry to a kitty who really luvs this holiday. We don’t celebrate it all. Big hugs

    Luv ya’

    Dezi and Raena

    1. Sorry your mom is afraid of spiders, my mom loves them, but she can do without all the other bugs. XO

  20. WE love you! And monday i am getting a new sister. Shes 8 months old, coming from a kill shelter in New York. My first mom Magdelana rescus the cats on the kill list and gets them foster care and then has a adopt-a-thon every weekend in Vermont to gets them homes. My brother died May 5th so ive been lonely so my mommy called to get me a sister so thats my story. So i want to win so i can give Elizabeth a surprise!

    1. I am so sorry about your brother. We have had 2 losses this year, Phoebe and Snowball. I think that is wonderful she rescues from the kill list.Good luck in the giveaway.

  21. The was a terrific poem. Mom flinched when she read you might put a spider in Mom Ellen’s blouse, imaging how she would feel if that happened to her. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy
