Thankful Thursday

Each Thursday Kitties Blue and I list the things for which we are thankful. This week, Sawyer is up first with great news. His last seizure was more than four weeks ago. He’s been better about eating his noms, which means he is getting his meds. Dad Tom and I pray he keeps up this good behavior.

On Tuesday, I try to participate in the Tuesday Teaser at Two Spoiled Cats. It seems everyone slept in this week, and I was the only First Commenter. And then…wait for it…I was also the First Right Guesser. I have been fortunate to accomplish this on only a couple of other occasions. So the professors’ (Angel Sammy and Teddy) mom, Pam, made me this special double winner badge. And that is my thankful.


double win

Hip Hip Hooray for ME! I not only was FIRST COMMENTER on the Teaser post of December 28, 2021 but I was also the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER……..WOW!!


Actually I do have another thankful, which is related to Christmas. On Christmas Day Dad Tom and I did a “Go To Meeting” (like Zoom) with his family. It was the first time we had seen most of them since last Christmas.

Kitties Blue are thankful for all the Christmas cards from their blogging friends, and Cooper Murphy is thankful for the Christmas cards from his Cat Scout friends.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by Brian. To participate, post on your blog for what you are thankful and then click on Brian’s badge to link up.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

I had big plans for my poem after seeing this week’s inspiration photo selected by Angel Sammy and Teddy from Two Spoiled Cats. Here’s that photo.



After writing four lines, however, I felt I’d said what I wanted. What do you think?

Buyer Beware

I always wanted a house by the sea.
I bought this place sight unseen,
And found I had a house in the sea.
It seems the seller has made a fool of me!

Sawyer! This is the bestest news! We are so thankful that it has been 4 weeks! And we gotta say, your Mom ROCKS! She did BOTH on the teaser on Tuesday (Firstie and right guesser. And We LOVE her poem. Mom wishes she could talk her family into online viewing. Even though we all have apple phones so we can Facetime, nobody does! We are thankful for you dear furrends–you and your antics always make our day.

The mom has never been first nor guessed right on the teaser. So to do both is quite the accomplishment. Concats! ~Ernie

I can’t imagine a house like that. It is abandoned but that it
s still standing is amazing.

Glad you liked your DOUBLE WIN badge! It was eerily SILENT when Teaser went live on Tuesday but you were there and got down to business. Our poems this week are very similar….mine was extra short and had the same “flavor” as yours. Great minds think alike!!

Hugs, Pam

That house is pretty weird, no? Just hope the tsunami stays away…
SO HAPPY FOR SAWYER! His fighting spirit is getting stronger it seems. And the meds must be very good ones. Hugs, Sawyer, and tummy rubs.
