Our thankful this week is another one of those silver lining things.
Today is our annual round-up. Dr. Neel arrives at 9 a.m. for our yearly exams and vaccinations. Granted, we sure don’t like that, but we like it better than being dragged across town to the vet hospital. As soon as Dr. Neel finishes with each of us, we’ll be released to the catio and receive some treats. It’s all easy peasy, except for the pawticure part, which none of us enjoy.
So that is our silver lining thankful: We have to be poked and prodded, but it is going to be at home.
We’ll let you know how everything turns out in a future post.
We also do have a real thankful. That’s a photo of our new cat tree for the catio. Another new tree is in the basement. It’s for the bedroom when the addition is completed.

Purrs and paw-pats, Kitties Blue
Thoroughly Poetic Thursday
Apology or Plea?
Relationships aren’t always easy.
Sometimes love isn’t enough.
Explanation may seem more like excuse;
Forgiveness too difficult to grant.
Maybe these two will work things out.
She may decide what’s made her mad
Is trivial and not worth fighting about.
But he may decide she’s too stubborn—
Not worth his time and effort, but
Maybe they will decide to compromise.
And they will return to this same table
Year after year on their anniversary.

Teddy and Angel Sammy (Two Spoiled Cats) provided the photo above as inspiration for this week’s poetry. And Sammy will have transmitted his poem to Teddy from the Rainbow Bridge. Whether or not you want to participate by writing a poem of your own, checking out Sammy’s poem is always a must. He’s a master of the craft. And if you have the time, check the comments on his poetry post for links to the poetry by other bloggers. To visit Two Spoiled Cats, click on the badge below.
That’s so cool that Dr. Neal comes to your house to check you all out. So much better than having to go across town to the vet hospital. Gracie had her check up on Thursday, and sang the song of her people all the way to the vet’s office. The good news is that she’s in a very good place, and doing well at 18 years old. 🙂
Hmmm, having a check-up at home is low stress, but I’m not sure I’d want to see my vet in my house.
Great poem. You kitties are lucky to not have to travel to the vet. That is a nice cat tree too> XO
How lucky to have all these catered to you at home, less stress!
I hope the annual round up went well.
I like the poem. It looks like he is doing all the work to try and make up, and maybe she will decide to give it another go.
Cool new cat tree! I hope all goes well with your check ups.
Having a vet come to the house is such a terrific thing! Hope there is only good news reported after he’s come and gone!
We hope all goes well with Dr. Neel today. Your new cat tree is pawsome!
Good luck with the round-up. Noelle is patiently waiting for Sawyer. He looks especially sweet way up in the new cat tree!

No long car ride is a super reason to be thankful. That poor lady doesn’t look too thankful though. Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
That’s a great cat tree! I hope the vet visit goes well.
That is great that you have a vet that makes house calls. If it was here, Floki would be UTB and we would not be able to catch him. When we bring him to the vet we have to surprise him. We snatch him up and put him in a carrier before he can break loose.
Janet your thoughts about that photo echoed my own thoughts…..it’s a “simple” photo but there are so many interesting details and implied situations so perfect for poetry material – letting our minds free to add words to any photo is an exercise in imagination! Poetry is a wonderful way to let ourselves be FREE. Thanks for participating – your poetry is always a TREAT. Speaking of that, I hope there will be some treats flying around after Dr. Neel’s visit today! Good luck!
