Thankful Thursday

We have a whopper of a thankful this week. Our blogoversary comment-a-thon was a huge success. We received 55 comments. Three of those were a second comment from some who had already commented. That gave us 52 comments and 52 entries in the random drawing for a donation to a rescue/shelter of the winner’s choice. The winner, as selected by, is The J-Cats. They were commenter #11. Here’s a screenshot from



I will contact the J-Cats to find out there selection, and Kitties Blue will make a $55 donation. When I find out where Kitties Blue are sending my green papers, I will let everyone know in a future post.

Thankfuls two and three this week come from Mauricio. He’d like to thank everyone who visited and left comments on the anniversary post for Allie (Friends Furever) and himself. And he is grateful for the terrific and thoughtful anniversary gift from Allie.


Thankful Thursday


Mau always loves Allie’s gifts. After checking out his new bed, he went back to playing with a previous gift she sent him. The stylish bed will look fabulous in our new bedroom.



Move-In Imminent

After months of stress and nearly endless complaining from me, our addition is on the brink of being completed. If the glass shower surround and door are installed tomorrow as scheduled, we could possibly be sleeping in our new master bedroom this weekend. I am over the moon thankful that this project is coming to an end.

An Apology

I rarely miss writing a poem and joining Thoroughly Poetic Thursday with Two Spoiled Cats. However, my poetry mojo seems to have taken a vacation this week. I was unable to muster any enthusiasm for the inspirational photo. I am hoping that Angel Sammy, Teddy and Mom Pam will accept my apology.

The kitties and I will see you tomorrow for Feline Friday and Friendly Fill-Ins.

Dearest Mau, I am sooo happy you liked your present. I thought it was cool that it could be a bed OR a pop-up but when I saw what it said I told Mom she HAD to let me get it for you.

ConCats to the J-Cats!

Love and smoochies,
your wife,

Awesome! We’re so glad a worthy rescue is getting some help. Thanks for that wonderful commentathon! If I knew I could comment twice, I woulda!

Katie Isabella July 25, 2019 at 6:59 am

Congratulations to the J-Cats! Love that they won the wonderful prize.


Teddy July 25, 2019 at 5:15 am

Concats to J-Cats and so happy their choice of rescue will benefit from the commentathon. What a nice new “hideout bed” Mau received from Allie for their anniversary. Looks cozy and comfy. I know ALL of you will be happy to have more space with the addition finally being finished off. One day, after you’ve recovered (!), I know all the problems and delays will vanish in your minds as you find the new area was OH SO WORTH the wait!

Hugs, Teddy and Mom too
