Thankful Thursday

We are super thankful that Sawyer went more than a week without a seizure, as he’s been having one every four to six days for quite a while. He has a vet appointment Friday for his annual exam, vaccinations and blood work to check his medication levels. I am particularly thankful for this, as it is almost impossible to get an appointment these days.

I am thankful for the opportunity to go to lunch with a friend yesterday. We each have had one dose of the vaccine and are looking forward to getting the second dose and eventually seeing each other more frequently.

Dad Tom and I are thankful for the entertainment Kizmet provides. She’s a little monkey and always into something. 




Kitties Blue and I are grateful always for all our friends, followers and supporters.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted each week by Brian. We participate, as it is important to remind ourselves of the good things in our lives, especially during these uncertain and trying times. If you’d like to join the hop, post on your blog for what you are thankful, then click on Brian’s badge.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Thursday also is when we write a poem for the Two Spoiled Cats, Teddy and Angel Sammy’s, poetry challenge. They provide an inspiration photo as a jumping off place for participants. Here’s today’s photo and my poem.




Imagination vs. Transportation

Someone must live in this unique car,
As on the road it won’t go far.
The creator had lots of imagination,
Including a helicopter for transportation.
I’d like to get a look inside
To see how the interior was modified.
Then learn more about the creator
And maybe the interior decorator.
It would be fun to know the motivation
For this crazy and unusual creation!

So good to hear that Sawyer is doing better. Mom and I are grateful that Ocean is home from the vet after his dental surgery and doing pretty good.

Kizmet is such a cutie pie! We are thankful that Sawyer has been having a respite, lets hope the frequency drops further. And we are lucky in going to a vet in a very small town, the pets peeps do a lot of what vet techs do in the big city. So when I take the “kids” in I get to go in with them. You guys and your “kids” Rock! We are thankful to be able to come and visit! Have an amazing day!

Wonderful list of thankfuls. Great poem too. XO

That is one strange vehicle!

Getting a vet appointment has been a serious problem here. Before he retired, our vet said it was a nightmare for them too. Everything takes twice as long with tons more phone calls. I was lucky to get Tilly in to a new vet a couple weeks ago when she was having tummy troubles. I’m hoping it goes back to “normal” by summer.
Yay for Sawyer not having as many seizures.

That is one fine rhyme! We are so happy that Stinky, we mean Sawyer is doing well. We hope he does even better in times to come and that his checkup is good. It sure is nice to be a part of this blog world isn’t it

Why is it so hard to get vet appointments, I wonder?
My vet’s office too is slammed; are people just more attentive to their animals because they are home more?
I wonder.
We call Da Boyz ‘monkeys’ too; they are so agile!
Purring for Sawyer.

That really is great Sawyer news and we know that sweet Kizmet is keeping you entertained. We enjoyed your poem!!! Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

Great news on Sawyer. Tell him I love him bunches. Cooper Murphy too.

Kismet is such a joy. I can see her all over the place. A wonderful kitten.

I love your thankful things today. Getting out with a friend is a wonderful thing.

Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday, Janet. Scritches to the kitties. ♥

Love the picture of Kizmet! Glad that Sawyer had a better week and that you have had your first dose of the vaccine and was able to meet a friend for lunch. 😊

We are always happy to hear that Sawyer has more time between seizures. We hope he has a good VET appointment.

Good job spotting the helicopter…we didn’t see it until we read your poem.

We hope Sawyer keeps that seizure monster at bay for longer periods of time AND hope that his checkup is good. The photo is pretty strange indeed…..that link we provided has some info on the limo and WHY it was created. It sure would take a while getting from one end of it to the other though!!

Hugs, Teddy

That super sized ‘limo’ has at least 24 wheel on it!! Yikes, some trucks have as many, LOL!

I enjoyed your poem! We hope the vet appt goes well for Sawyer, and we keep pawyering for those seizure monsters to go away.

We both got our second shots this week…I got Moderna at my work, and hubby got Pfizer at a clinic. Now we sure hope that more and more peeps will be able to also have this weapon against the evil corona virus.
