Thankful Thursday

As today is Thanksgiving, Kitties Blue and I are beginning our post today with our thankfuls and by joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday blog hop.

Dad Tom and I are thankful to be spending Thanksgiving with family; though, we do miss Kitties Blue.

We also are thankful we have this cutie pie (Lula) to give us love and kisses. She thinks she’s a lap dog. (Please don’t tell our gang we are cheating on them.)

Kitties Blue are thankful treat lady, Chris, is taking care of them for part of the time. I’m thankful my friend, Etna, will be there when Chris cannot be.

As always we are super thankful for our friends, followers and supporters, especially those of you reading and commenting on our “Looking Back” posts. 

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by  Brian. To participate click on his badge.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

One of the posts I have the most fun with each week is the poetry challenge hosted by Angel Sammy and Teddy from Two Spoiled Cats. They provided an inspiration photo, and the participants write a poem based on that photo. If possible, I try to add one of the Kitties Blue to the photo. This week, you will find Raleigh helping out.


Boy toddler sitting atop a green toy train with an appalled expression on his face as he spots an orange tabby kitten on the tracks.


This toddler has the most incredibly shocked expression on his face, which I think is even more believable with the addition of Raleigh. The poem is from the toddler’s point of view; though, I am certain his vocabulary wouldn’t contain as many words.

 Life Is Not Fair

Hey, dumb cat get off the tracks.
I don’t know how to stop this train!
The cowcatcher’s going to give you a whack—
Smash your body and splatter your brain.
This isn’t a cat versus train game.
I’ll probably puke if I see your blood,
And be sent to timeout; though, I’m not to blame.
And, if you survive, you’ll get treats and hugs.

If you haven’t been participating in Teddy and Angel Sammy’s poetry challenge, I recommend you to give it a try. It’s the perfect opportunity to use your imagination and creativity. Check out Two Spoiled Cats, by clicking on the poetry badge, for next week’s inspiration photo. And please read Angel Sammy’s poem. He aways writes a great one!

OH, what a cutie. So glad to be a lap dog, that is evident! And those kitties won’t know, what with all the attention they are getting.

That poem reminded me of the Christmas Tree Train insident…We hope you have is the bestest time away from the kitties. The best thing about going away is they will be so furry happy when you get home and will not even notice the Lula smells on your laps!

Happy Thanksgiving! Lula looks like a real cuddle bug and fun to be around. We’re glad the Kitties Blue have their treat lady to keep them pacified until you return, too. The addition of Raleigh was a purrfect touch for this pic and the poem couldn’t have been better!!

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and I hope the kitties don’t miss you too much. Maybe just a little.

First of all – HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY! Secondly, brillliant and adorable poem for the funny photo we offered up this week. I love that kid’s face and it looks like he’s staring RIGHT AT Raleigh!!!! Lula is adorable – I bet you’re enjoying your time with family but I am SURE the Kitties Blue will be happy to see your faces on your return. We love you!

Hugs, Pam and Teddy
