Love Your Pet Day


Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

It is Thursday, which means it is time to write a poem for the Two Spoiled Cats, Teddy And Angel Sammy’s, poetry challenge. They provide an inspiration photo, and participants use it as the subject or jumping off place for a poem.

The yummy-looking photo and my poem are below. Being let loose in this point and able to order and eat whatever I want would be a dream come true.



A Delicious Display

What totally lucious treats—
I think I’d like at least one of each.
I have a sweet tooth, that is true,
So having one dessert just won’t do.
I think, in fact, I’ll skip my entreé
And have you bring me an entire tray
Of brownies, eclairs and lemon tarts,
Plus some Linzer cookies with the hearts,
One coconut cake and a pecan pie
Then I’ll let you know what catches my eye.
With desserts as far as one can see—
Oh what a great day I predict this will be!

In addition to providing the inspiration photo, Angel Sammy writes a poem each week and transmits it to Teddy from the Rainbow Bridge. He is a masterful poet, so please drop my Two Spoiled Cats, by clicking on the badge above, to read his poem.

Thankful Thursday

Thursday also is when we join the Thankful Thursday blog hop hosted by Brian. To participate, post on your blog for what you are thankful, then click on Brian’s badge to go to his blog and enter the link to yours.

My biggest fear has always been fire. While growing up in California, I remember many fires, but nothing like we see now. I am honestly thankful that we no longer live there. Worry about friends and family is stressful enough. So far, everyone is okay (including my friend who had to evacuate) for which I am thankful.

I am also thankful we remain virus free, and to my knowledge all our friends and family remain healthy.

Finally, I am thankful to have been one of four First Commenters on the Tuesday Teaser at Two Spoiled Cats. I won this cool badge.



Today is Love Your Pet Day, and we know we are loved. So instead of celebrating that special occasion, we are celebrating another just as impawtant one. As you can see from the title, today is our dad’s birthday. So we made a post just for him so we could show him how much we love him.




Happy Birthday Dad


We also wrote a little song for him with the help of the music from The Brady Bunch television show. Sing along if you like.

Here’s the story, of a man named Blue,
Who was busy with eight cats at his home.
There were eight girls plus two guys together,
So no one ever had to be alone.

Then one day this man had his birthday,
And the kitties planned a party and some lunch.
They shouted Happy Birthday to their daddy,
And brought him lots of kisses in a bunch.

The kisses bunch,
The kisses bunch,
Happy Birthday Daddy, here’s a great big kisses bunch.


We love you dad and thank you for taking such good care of us. We wish you the bestest birthday ever and many, many more. And don’t worry…we promise not to tell anybody how old you are!

This is our unconventional entry in the Caturday Art Blog Hop hosted by Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty and Mom Marie. If you’d like to join in the fun, create some art of your own, click on their badge and enter the link to your creation and blog.

Cat4-001Tomorrow is our weekly blog hop: Sunday Selfies. We’ll be right here and one of the stunning Kitties Blue will be your host. No decision yet as to who that might be, so please come back then to see.

Today is Love Your Pet Day, but it is also our dad’s birthday. In honor of both, we have decided to share some photos of us loving our daddy and vice versa. Even though he is allergic to us, he lets us love on him and he always reciprocates.

All photos show us in Dad’s lap on lying atop him except the one with kitten Calista Jo using dad as her personal snuggly. A few of these photos have been shared on our blog previously.








We love you daddy, and we know you love us. Happy Birthday to the best cat dad ever!

Purrs and kisses, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth & Calista Jo

p.s. Don’t forget to love your pet today.
