Thankful Thursday

Cooper Murphy has the main thankful this week. On Easter weekend Cat Scouts held a scavenger hunt/quiz and Cooper Murphy came in second place. As the result, he won a super cool prize. He’s now ready for Summer Camp or the next Jamboree or Quest at Scouts, provided the other members of the Kitties Blue crew let him use his prize.



As we are every day, Kitties Blue and I are thankful for each of you who follow, visit and support us. Without you, we would have given up on this blog years ago.

Brian hosts the Thankful Thursday blog hop. If you’d like to participate, post for what you are thankful and then click on Brian’s Badge to go to Brian’s Home and enter your link.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Our hosts for the Thoroughly Poetic Thursday poetry challenge, Angel Sammy and Teddy, have provided the purrfect inspiration photo for today’s poetry, as today is Earth Day. Here’s the photo followed by my poem.



Earth’s Bounty

Beans, peas, tomatoes and corn—
Fresh and tasty, picked just this morn.
No pesticides or growth hormone,
Just the goodness of being home grown.
Spring and summer are filled with tasty delights.
My mouth waters as I anticipate taking a bite.

And while there, please read Angel Sammy’s poem. He transmits it to Teddy from the Rainbow Bridge, and it is always first rate.

Earth Day 2021

Earth Day


World Earth Day is a worldwide awareness celebrated every year on April 22. The reason to celebrate this event is to make people aware of our earth and environment. Though celebrated only one day each year, we should consider every day Earth Day and take measures to protect it.

The first Earth Day sparked the passage in the U.S. of the Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species Acts, and the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency.

EARTHDAY.ORG’s theme for Earth Day 2021 is Restore Our Earth™, which focuses on natural processes, emerging green technologies and innovative thinking that can restore the world’s ecosystems. In this way, the theme rejects the notion that mitigation or adaptation are the only ways to address climate change.

And climate change is real. It is impacting our planet and our lives and it is time for action. The urgency has never been greater, and stakes never higher. We face mass extinction of species, catastrophic pollution of oceans, destruction of communities and displacement of millions.

Our tabbies, Periwinkle & Stinky had a terrific adventure of Tuesday. They provided a wealth of information about Earth Day. If you missed their post, click on their graphic to go to Friends Furever and read it.

Thanks for joining us today. Be nice to the earth!

You are right…every day is Earth Day. Recycle/re-use. No harmful chemicals. Natural pesticides and fertilizers. We are trying, and along with millions of others, we will make a difference!

What a cool prize Cooper Murphy. Now if you can just use it. I’m sure you’ll be able to.

Love the poem.

We are thankful for you and all your kitties. They do bring us such joy.

Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Scritches all around and a hug to mom. ♥

That is the COOLEST tent and Coop – I think you’re going to have a time keeping the rest of your crew from “camping out” ! It’s a great size too – perfect for a king size ginger. Love the poem your Mom did this week for Angel Sammy’s poetry challenge. Those farmer’s markets and roadside stands give everyone a chance to eat REAL FOOD, grown with love and no harmful sprays and chemicals. The way food is MEANT to be eaten!

Hugs, Teddy
