Thankful Thursday

Each Thursday Kitties Blue and I like to share the things for which we are thankful, and Christmas is the perfect time to do that.

Periwinkle and Stinky are thankful their gingerbread cats tasted delicious; though, they may have looked less than appetizing. (Periwinkle and Stinky shared photos of our three Christmas trees in their post on Tuesday. Click on the link in the previous sentence if you’d like to see them.)

Kitties Blue are not only thankful for heated floors on cold days but also radiators.


thankful for Christmas: Three cats (a grey one, a Manx grey tabby and a torbie cat) warm themselves on a radiator.


I am thankful I have completed at least 90 percent of the gift wrapping duties.

The gang and I are thankful to those of you who have sent us holiday greetings. Unfortunately our cards will be arriving at your homes after Christmas, as I failed to order them in a timely manner. (We don’t want any of you to think we have forgotten you when you do not receive a card prior to Christmas.)

Kitties Blue and I are thankful to each of you for being our friends, following our blog and leaving comments.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Thursday also is the day when we share a poem based on an inspiration photo selected by Angel Sammy and Teddy from Two Spoiled Cats. Here is today’s fun photo followed by my poem.


thankful for Christmas: Mr and Mrs. Santa Claus in front of a U.S. Air Force plane.


Christmas is Saved

It’s difficult to deliver gifts
when all the reindeer call in sick!
But Mrs. Claus knew of a resource
and called in the U.S. Air Force.
They loaded up Santa’s sleigh and goodies
to deliver to all the world’s kiddies.
Santa was thankful Christmas was saved
and upon the Air Force bestowed great praise!

Each week Angel Sammy transmits his poem from the Rainbow Bridge to Teddy for publication. He is one of Kitties Blue and my favorite poets, and his poem always gets an A+ from us. Pop on over to Two Spoiled Cats, by clicking on the poetry badge, to check out Sammy’s poem and get the photo for next week’s challenge.

Thanks for dropping in today. Hope to see you again tomorrow for Feline Friday and Friendly Fill-ins.
