Thankful Thursday

On this Thanksgiving Day Kitties Blue, Dad Tom and I are thankful to have each other. And, of course, we are thankful to have all of you, our friends and followers, in our lives.

Sawyer has some thankfuls today as well. He did not have a terrific Gotcha Day, as he had a seizure that evening. But he is grateful for all the good wishes he received on his special day as well as lots of treaties.

He is sending special thanks to friends Noelle (Friends Furever) and Pipo, Dalton and Benji (Meezer’s Mews and Terrieristical Woofs) who sent these cards.



I also have a special thankful this week. With no help from Astrid, who decided lying across the iPad was her sworn duty, I won a badge on the Tuesday Teaser at Two Spoiled Cats. I should have been one of the first commenters as well as the first right guesser, but Astrid had other things in mind, like getting love and attention. She refused to let me type, and then she had me leaving comments on the wrong post. Nonetheless, I got a special Thanksgiving badge for being a Right Guesser.


Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by our friend Brian. If you would like to join us on the hop, post on your blog for what you are thankful and then click on the badge below.

Thoroughly Poetic Thanksgiving Thursday

As we do each Thursday, we are participating in Angel Sammy and Teddy’s (Two Spoiled Cats) poetry challenge. They provide an inspiration photo for participants. This being Thanksgiving, I decided to interpret this week’s photo as representative of the holiday.



Thanksgiving Day Outing

A rare treat for mom and son
A trip to the Thanksgiving Day parade.
The youngster too excited to complain
About the long trek from the subway.
Anticipation of balloons and bands
enough to keep him on a steady course.
Unfortunately, Millie, the dog doesn’t share
Her young human’s enthusiasm. She planted
Her butt on the sidewalk, refused to budge.
Now she rides while her young master
Charges ahead; Mom pushes the sleeping dog.
Passersby stare and chuckle, shake their
Heads at the silliness of the scene.
But neither mom nor son notice,
Thankful and excited to spend the day
Together enjoying the once yearly event.

It’s unfortunate that Sawyer had a seizure on his Gotcha Day, but I’m sure he enjoyed the treats and love. We all do have so much to be thankful for.

You are in our thoughts and purrs always, sweet pals.

We’re always sorry to hear that Sawyer has had another seizure and even more so on his Gotcha Day. Noelle hopes he likes her card.

Your poem was great!

We are thankful that you are our friends!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We are sorry little Sawyer had another seizure and on his special day too! We hope that Thanksgiving is special at your house and suspect that to be the case because you are one big, very happy family that takes care of each other with love every day of the year. You sure did a great job with the poem this week – a nice slant on Thanksgiving there for sure……we hope the Macy’s Day parade manages to come off without a hitch in light of the incredibly high winds all of us are experiencing today! We are thankful for your friendship………………….today and every day!

Love, Teddy and Mom
