Thankful Thursday

Hi friends,

It’s Cooper Murphy here. Mom had a horrendously terrible day yesterday, and so I offered to take over the blog today, as I have a fabulous thankful.  

I got an e-mail from the vet yesterday wishing me a happy birthday. They used to always send an e-card, but haven’t done that in a long time. Neither Mom, Dad nor I knew they assigned me a birthdate when I first visited. 

From now on I get to celebrate along with Angel Derby on Tock-Tober (October 20). How cool is that! I guessing the future I will need to proudly show off my mega-sized tocks on my birthday. But today, I will share my adorable face and toesies and wish myself a very happy belated birthday!

Mom has the other thankful. Her nephew, Gene, came through heart surgery yesterday with a better than expected result. He’s in the ICU, but she talked to him, and he’s doing well. Here’s a picture of them from 2017. He lives in California and is a Captain with CalFire. 



I am hopping over to Brian’s Home for Thankful Thursday. If you’d like to join me on the blog hop, post on your blog for what you are thankful, then click on Brian’s badge.

That’s all we have for today. We send apologies to Angel Sammy and Teddy (Two Spoiled Cats) that Mom did not write a poem today. Unfortunately that happens some weeks.

Purr & paw-pats, Cooper Murphy

We love firemen! Healing purrz for nephew Gene. Love your mom’s glasses.
TW had her terrible day today. Couldn’t eat past midnight, too nervous to sleep and getting intubated for the first and hopefully last time.

Happy belated birthday to you Cooper Murphey!

Mom said to say heart surgery is literally a life saver. It saved my Mom. I am wishing a special good recovery to your mom’s nephew Gene.

Be well, each of you.

The J-Cats October 21, 2021 at 5:42 am

We are sorry your Mom had an awful day and hope the rest of the week will make up for it.
To you, We say “Happy Birthday, Dear Cooper Murphy”. You do look adorable.
Last, but most certainly not least, We purray for a speedy and complete recovery for your Mom’s nephew (your Human cousin).

Teddy October 21, 2021 at 5:39 am

A SURPRISE Birthday huh Coop? Well that’s very special and it’s nice to know when your birthday is from now on right? TOCKTober is a mighty fine day for a celebration of tocks AND your birthday. We’re happy your Mom’s nephew is doing well after his heart surgery. He sure has a tough job but without brave people like him, the fires in California would be WORSE.

Hugs, Teddy
