Thankful Thursday

Lisbeth and I have the first of the thankfuls this week. We visited our vet, Dr. Kaitlyn McBane, on Monday. I know Lisbeth was not thankful about going to see Dr. McBane. She let me know at full voice all the way there.

My first thankful is that our wonderful (but retired) vet, Dr. Kathie Neel, recommended Dr. McBane. She is so kind, friendly and knowledgeable and treats Kitties Blue with such care.

Our second thankful is that all of Lisbeth’s bloodwork was normal. I took her to see Dr. McBane with the fear she might have diabetes or hypothyroidism due to the condition of her fur and skin. Lisbeth gets probiotics, but we will be switching her to Omega 3s and a topical foam in a hope to clear up the problems.

The next thankful comes from Sawyer and me as well. We both appreciate each and everyone of you who continue to pray for him and wish him well. I don’t always mention when he has a seizure. They happen with regularity and it takes him longer to recover each time. He is so precious to us, and I wish we could do more for him.

As the kitties and I tell you often, we totally appreciate your support, following and friendship.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by Angel Brian, and we so appreciate that he continues to host this hop from the Rainbow Bridge. To participate in the hop, click on the Thankful badge.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

The Two Spoiled Cats, Teddy and Angel Sammy, provided us with an adorable photo of prairie dogs to serve as this week’s inspiration for a poem.

Amorous Prairie Dogs

Come here snookums and give me a kiss.
Hug me with your tiny paws…pure bliss!
Please don’t my amorousness dismiss.

We can retire to our coterie
where I can woo you with poetry,
as I have a huge vocabulary.

We’ll spend our one hour for this year
getting very close together, my dear,
before our mating window should disappear.

Each week Angel Sammy transmits his poem from the Rainbow Bridge to Teddy for publication. In our opinion, Sammy is an incredible poet, and he always writes a memorable poem. Please stop 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 joining us today. We plan to be right back here tomorrow. So, we’ll hope to see you again then.
