Thankful Thursday

We haven’t had a terrific week. Dad Tom was exposed to COVID on Sunday. He isn’t sick but has to wait until Friday to take a test. We do have a couple here at home, so at least he won’t have to wait in line somewhere to get it.

Last Thursday we reported that Sawyer had a seizure after more than a five-week respite. Unfortunately he had another just five days later.

Regardless, we do have a couple of thankfuls.

I was one of five who were first through the school room door for the Tuesday Teaser at Two Spoiled Cats. Unfortunately I did not guess the locale correctly.

Cooper Murphy has the other thankfuls for the week. He received this super Gotcha Day card from his girlfriend Tyebe (Canadian Cats).


Cooper Murphy and Tyebe


If you are wondering why the card says Snap, it is because that’s Tyebe’s nickname for Cooper (as in Gingersnap). His pet name for her is Crackle.

Cooper also is thankful I did not kiss him yesterday for Kiss A Ginger Day. I did try, but he pulled away, as he always does. Most of the other Kitties Blue enjoy getting kisses. Kizmet particularly enjoys giving them.

As always we are thankful for your support and friendship.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by Brian. To participate, post on your blog for what you are thankful, then click on the Thankful Thursday badge to link up.


Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Today is also poetry day over at Two Spoiled Cats. The inspiration photo is really a fun one, but I was busy all day and didn’t get the opportunity to write a poem. So, I will include it tomorrow along with our Friendly Fill-Ins. Hope to see you then.

Poor Sawyer and poor Dad Tom too, but Cooper Murphy always makes everyone smile. Y’all take care and be safe up there.

Poor Sawyer. He’s always in my thoughts and prayers.

I’d love to kiss Cooper Murphy, but I’m sure he wouldn’t let me either. It’s enough that he knows I love him.

I hope Dad Tom doesn’t get sick or test positive. Prayers for him too.

Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Scritches to all the kitties, a smooch to Cooper Murphy, healing hugs to Sawyer and a hug to mom. ♥

What a week you had, Snap and family. We hope with all our might that Dad Tom doesn’t have covid. It’s really hard to avoid people and how do you tell a vaccinated person from one that isn’t and may be carrying the omicron virus.? Sawyer’s seizure was a shock after such a short time. I wonder if they use any human drugs to control seizures? Snap, I didn’t know about kiss a ginger yesterday or I would have been all over you like fur…..mol

Our dopey Mom kissed us all yesterday even though none of us are Gingers!!! We’re purring and praying that Dad Tom is negative!!

Noelle says “Sawyer, EAT!!!!”

The Florida Furkids with love and whisker kisses to Sawyer from Noelle

We will be happy when Dad Tom takes his test and finds out he is COVID-FREE! We’re sorry Sawyer had a seizure so soon after the last one but if he doesn’t eat and get his meds – well – we know what usually happens. It makes me SAD though. Sending hugs to everyone………….Mom had a tough time kissing me yesterday too but I did allow JUST ONE!

Hugs, Teddy

And Happy Gotcha Day to Cooper Murphy.

Purrs and prayers for Dad Tom and for Sawyer.
And POTP as well.

Oh, happy gotcha day, and where did your name come from? We love your name. I’m thinking about having mama change mine to something a bit more exiciting, like Lola Christine or Margaret the Magnificent. Loulou is so banal.

We sure hope Dad Tom stays clear of the covid virus, and you too, Miss Janet. Stay well!
I am praying for you…
And for Sawyer too to not have more seizures.

Cooper Murphy sure got a nice card|!
