Thankful Thursday

Thursday is the day for sharing thankfuls, and we have lots of them today.

Astrid & Lisbeth get to share their thankfuls first.

Astrid thanks her husband Sampy for her birthday card with his photo. She loves how he appears to be reaching out to her in the photo.


Pawfuls of Thankfuls: Birthday cat with a tuxie cat reaching out with his right paw.


Lisbeth thanks her boyfriend, Angel Charles, for her e-card, and Astrid thanks Charles’ family for hers.

Both girls send thanks to everyone who sent them birthday wishes here and on Instagram.

Sawyer is thankful his dad was there for him when he had a seizure Tuesday afternoon. Unfortunately, he only made it one week since his last one. But one week is better than one day!


Pawfuls of Thankfuls: grey tabby cat wrapped in a blue towel recovering from a seizure.


Dad Tom and I are thankful that Raleigh and Audrey are doing great! They continue to wear their harnesses for several hours each day and enjoy playtime outside their enclosure. They, however, continue to snooze a lot, as kittens do.


Pawfuls of Thankfuls: brown tabby kitten and orange tabby kitten snuggling.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Thursday is also poetry day. Angel Sammy and Teddy (Two Spoiled Cats) provide an inspiration photo, and we provide a poem. Here’s today’s photo.


Pawfuls of Thankfuls: huge wave almost engulfs nearby people.


I  have a very short poem to accompany it, and the photo is without a cat. Felines are not fond of water, and I decided not to subject any of the Kitties Blue to this torrent.


Surf’s up, catch a wave, hang ten.
Then get back up and do it again.
Only a surfer could enjoy this wall of water
And not run away; though, he ought to.
