Thankful Thursday

Thursday is the day for sharing thankfuls, and we have lots of them today.

Astrid & Lisbeth get to share their thankfuls first.

Astrid thanks her husband Sampy for her birthday card with his photo. She loves how he appears to be reaching out to her in the photo.


Pawfuls of Thankfuls: Birthday cat with a tuxie cat reaching out with his right paw.


Lisbeth thanks her boyfriend, Angel Charles, for her e-card, and Astrid thanks Charles’ family for hers.

Both girls send thanks to everyone who sent them birthday wishes here and on Instagram.

Sawyer is thankful his dad was there for him when he had a seizure Tuesday afternoon. Unfortunately, he only made it one week since his last one. But one week is better than one day!


Pawfuls of Thankfuls: grey tabby cat wrapped in a blue towel recovering from a seizure.


Dad Tom and I are thankful that Raleigh and Audrey are doing great! They continue to wear their harnesses for several hours each day and enjoy playtime outside their enclosure. They, however, continue to snooze a lot, as kittens do.


Pawfuls of Thankfuls: brown tabby kitten and orange tabby kitten snuggling.


Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by Brian. If you’d like to participate, post on your blog for what you are thankful. Then enter the URL from Brian’s badge in your browser to pop over to Brian’s Home.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Thursday is also poetry day. Angel Sammy and Teddy (Two Spoiled Cats) provide an inspiration photo, and we provide a poem. Here’s today’s photo.


Pawfuls of Thankfuls: huge wave almost engulfs nearby people.


I  have a very short poem to accompany it, and the photo is without a cat. Felines are not fond of water, and I decided not to subject any of the Kitties Blue to this torrent.


Surf’s up, catch a wave, hang ten.
Then get back up and do it again.
Only a surfer could enjoy this wall of water
And not run away; though, he ought to.

Good poem…except the last would maybe coulda been oughter!
We’re sorry Sawyer had another seizure so soon, but you’re right, at least it was at least a week, and his dad was there for him.
We’re glad you girls had nice cards from your guys, and think Sampy is a handsome boy cat. This is the first time we’ve seen him. Astrid, we think you two are a good match.

The kittens are adorable.
We are purring for Sawyer.
We don’t understand why anyone would want to go out onto the ocean with only a surfboard.

We’re always sorry to hear that Sawyer has had a seizure but he sure looks adorable in that photo. Noelle wishes she was there to comfort him.

We’re glad the girls had such a nice birthday. Audrey and Raleigh are adorable together. They sure seem to be great buddies.

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

Boy, the girls had a wonderful pawty and…they got special cards too. No wonder they wanted to tell their thankfuls. A Tuxie boyfriend is a wonderful thing to have. *I* have one too. He lives in Canada.


Teddy August 18, 2022 at 4:54 am

Glad the girls enjoyed their birthday celebration! We also quite like seeing Raleigh and Audrey in their napping position…..they are so adorable. Love the poem – it may be short but it’s packing a punch when it comes to “creative” !!!! So sorry Sawyer had two seizures so close together – sending him an extra hug.

Hugs, Teddy and Mom too

Sure hope and pawray that Sawyer will have another extended no seizure time.

That is a great poem, who in their right mind would want to surf on that kind of wave? Yikes!

I’m glad the birthday kitties both got nice cards! Sorry to hear Sawyer had another seizure, we are still purring for no more. Those kittens are just too cute!

Meows, purrs, hugs and MOLs are greatly appreciated. Please no hissing, spitting or scratching unless you want one of us to whap you!
