Thankful Tuesday

Happy Tuesday everyone! I am very thankful that Pipo and Minko ( ) came up with an X for the a-z blogging challenge. Actually, it is many x’s: Xena, Xenia, Xya, Xara. That is just some cat names that begin with X. They inspired me to do some searching and there is a whole website with names in alphabetical order as well as suggestions by breed, etc. This is where I found the X ones:Β  .

I am going to bookmark this website because I am running out of names. I am sure Stinky would like to pick a different name πŸ™‚ 038

I am also very thankful to someone I wish I knew who it was. I got a big surprise in the mail yesterday my very own Quint!!!! That is better than a Van Gogh to me. There was a note from Quint that said “For all you do, this painting has been gifted to you by an anonymous friend”. THANK YOU!!!! You really made me feel special and I love the painting. My hubby was even impressed with his work.


I am going to do a giveaway tomorrow to go along with the letter Y so make sure you stop by.



  1. Good job finding an X for the challenge! πŸ™‚

    How nice of someone to give you a genuine Quint painting! We are big fans of his work.


    1. I am very lucky πŸ™‚ I wish I knew who sent it so I could send some catnip toys to them. Also lucky that Pipo and Minko came up with my X.

    1. I have never had a cat with an X name either. I am very happy to have my own Quint. πŸ™‚

  2. We love Quint! When my human and I were in Portland, we got to hear all about his development as an artist from his human!

  3. Oh lucky you – got an original Quint! That was a very sweet thing for your mystery friend to do……..we think whoever they are put into action what we all think – you do SO MUCH and have so many fun giveaways and deserve a nice treat like that artwork you received. YAY for your mystery gift!

    Hugs, Sammy

  5. Wow that was a very nice gift! Quint does such fantastic work. We are always amazed. Phoebe you are looking very lovely!

    1. It does sound like you had quite an ordeal, I would be liking the name Xanax too πŸ™‚

    1. My husband- LOL πŸ™‚ He has never even read my blog to know that I wrote about Quint. He doesn’t go online, but now that I think of it, I am a little miffed at him for not asking me to show it to him.

      1. Hahaha! Sorry, hubby that I put her on this topic! (I understand you, I’d be furious if my partner wasn’t reading EVERY single post. And of course he better admires my funny posts. )

  6. What a great surprise! Quint is quite the artist. I’m always amazed at what he is able to do. Those are great X names by the way. Tell Stinky not to feel bad about the name. My Cinco’s nickname is Stink. It’s a good crowd to belong to πŸ™‚

    1. Did Cinco earn the name Stink for the same reason our Stinky did? LOL πŸ™‚

  7. We love that little hat on Stinky (what is the opposite of Stinky? Fragrant? Ambrosial?…Maybe Stinky would like Ambrosia as part of her name although we think Stinky is purrfectly fine too πŸ™‚

    Maybe Quint himself sent you that lovely print! ;p And you do deserve it πŸ™‚

    1. Sorry you had to drop out πŸ™ You had a lot of good posts about kidney disease. I thought of doing the nip bananas of the Yeowww brand, but decided on something else. Something I make my made with love toys with ( hint). We’ll see you tomorrow for Lexi’s birthday. XO

  9. Our mom says she always thought the name, “xoxo” would be a sweet one. You could pronounce it “zo zo” but our mom says she would pronounce it “kisses.” Our mom is silly.

    Quint’s happy to see you got your painting and is sending kisses. Other than that, his lips are sealed. xoxo

    1. That would be a sweet name πŸ™‚ Quint is not only a great artist, but he is also a great secret keeper πŸ™‚
