Thankful Thursday

Last week, I reported that Dad Tom had been exposed to COVID and was waiting to take a test. He did that last Friday, and tested negative.

Kitties Blue are thankful for warm laps during these cold and snowy winter days. Misty May and Kizmet like Dad Tom’s lap. Astrid prefers my lap unless she’s in the kitchen and then she’ll settle in with her dad.


warm laps


The kitties as well as Dad Tom and I are thankful to have a new thermostat for the heated bathroom floor. It has been out for a couple of weeks. With the bathroom above the unheated garage, the floor has been 20 degrees colder than usual. It is a favorite napping place for the furries, so they are especially delighted to have the heat back.

And, as always, Kitties Blue and I are grateful for your support and friendship.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by Brian. If you would like to participate, post on your blog for what you are thankful and then click on the badge below.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

In addition to being thankful on Thursday, I try to participate in the Two Spoiled Cats’ (Angel Sammy and Teddy) poetry challenge. I am enamored with this week’s inspiration photo. It is perfect as is, so I didn’t want to spoil it with too many words.



True love knows no age
And this dance needs no stage
Just a recalled tune

Always nice to see kittens cuddling. I expect you will see more cuddling in the future with this cold weather.
Loved your Friendly Fill-Ins Answers.

I’m happy dad Tom’s test was negative.

Aw on that lap snuggling. It’s important to stay warm.

I would love to have a heated bathroom floor.

I love the poem. I agree.

Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday, Janet. Scritches all around, a smooch to Cooper Murphy and a hug to you. ♥

That poem makes my heart happy just as the photo did when I first saw it…..and this particular photo needs no explanation either which is what makes love so perfect. Thanks for loving the photo as much as we did when we found it!

Hugs, Pam

I love that little poem! ts perfect!

Oh, we wish we had a heated floor. Our front room where the ‘office’ is, is on a concrete slab, so it gets chilly in there, even with a heavy underpad for the carpet.
