Thankful Thursday

This week’s main thankful comes from our two adventurous tabbies, Periwinkle (Friends Furever) and Stinky. They had a terrific time on Tuesday visiting the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden in Springfield, Massachusetts. They’re thankful for the opportunity to share this great adventure with each other but also with a record number of readers. They’d like to invite anyone here today, who missed the adventure, to check it out by clicking here. And here’s a photo from their adventure that they didn’t share on Tuesday.



Sawyer asked to share a huge thankful. He is at 23 days of only having a few focal seizures and no gran mals. This is a new record. He has been better about eating, which is how he gets his medicine. Whether or not this is the reason he’s doing better, we feel so fortunate and happy for him. 

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

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

It’s time for another poetry challenge hosted by Teddy and Angel Sammy (Two Spoiled Cats). This week’s inspiration photo is a doozy.



I really felt sorry for this baby, which made it difficult to write a poem. I didn’t want something sad, so I ended up with a limerick, which I hope no one finds offensive.

There once was a toddler with a chubby butt,
Whose cheeks were as huge as a truck.
When he sat in his tiny wagon
His heinie was a draggin’,
So a strict diet became a must.

If you’d like to write a poem for next week, check out Two Spoiled Cats by clicking on their badge to find next week’s photo. And don’t forget to read Angel Sammy’s poem. He transmits it to Teddy each week from the Rainbow Bridge, and he is a terrific poet. His poems are always a must read.

Happy Birthday Teddy

Any outdoor space with sculpture and artwork is a must-see for me! Heck, indoors too…
We will continue to purr for Sawyer, since maybe that’s working.
Look at the size of that chubby bubby, and what a face!

Periwinkle and Stinky’s visit to Dr, Seuss’s place was such fun. The poem was a great one. Itwas cute instead of being sad…..great work. Over to visit the birthday boy.

I loved Periwinkle and Stinky’s adventure last Tuesday. Always fun, but this one was very special.

I’m so happy Sawyer is doing so well. Keep up the great work.

Love the poem. It made me chuckle.

That is a really fun photo of a Who House in vines. It took some work to get them to grow and we would love to see it in the summer. Big Congrats to Sawyer! We are sooo happy he has had this milestone and hope it just keeps going and going. Great Limerick and we are hopping over to visit Teddy right now! Cute card

That’s a whole lot of great THANKFULS! We’re glad Sawyer is eating better and we hope his streak continues.
We agree, that little one looks very unhappy.

We are so happy to read that wonderful update about dear Sawyer and that’s a darn cute poem too. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

What a wonderful Limerick for that sad little kid in the wagon – we love it and we also love all of you for the gorgeous birthday card. I can’t believe I’m five already….my time here with Mom and Dad is flying by. I couldn’t be happier especially with such wonderful friends helping me celebrate. Mom and I are so thrilled that Sawyer hasn’t had a bad seizure in so long and we hope it STAYS THAT WAY. We love you all!

Hugs, Teddy
