VETERANS DAY THANKFULS, A POEM & A FAREWELL

by Janet Blue on November 11, 2021

Thankful Thursday 

Today is when we share those things for which we are thankful.

Mom and Dad are thankful for some unseasonably warm weather, as they have been able to get some work done outside. We’ve enjoyed it as well for the opportunity to spend lots of time on the catio.

 

 

Today is Veterans Day, and we want to express our thanks to all veterans, including both our mom and dad’s fathers, as well as active members of the military.

We are always thankful for our friends, followers and supporters. And that means each of you!

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Just looking at today’s inspiration photo for Teddy and Angel Sammy’s poetry challenge makes us shiver. Cooper Murphy is especially not fond of snow. He’d been abandoned to fend for himself in a snow storm. Luckily he found his way to a friend/neighbor’s porch, and our dad rescued him. Mom thought it was fitting we share that photo of him enjoying a warm day on the catio in this same post.

 

 

Here’s Mom’s little poem written from our point of view.

BRRR!

Thank God we don’t get snow like this.
We can guarantee it would make us hiss.
Cold, wet paws are definitely not to our liking,
And we think Dad would have to go hiking
To buy our noms, treats and litter,
As we doubt UPS would come and deliver!

A Sad Farewell

We just learned of the passing of a dear (and always funny) friend, Tuna of Moon. Tuna resided with the Food Service Girl and those Trout Talkin’ Tabbies.

 

 

If you have not had the opportunity to leave your condolences, please click on Tuna’s portrait to read the beautiful post and let his family know you’re thinking of them. He’ll always be remembered and loved by all who knew and followed him.

Thanks for visiting today.

Purrs and paw-pats, Misty May, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer & Kizmet

Being thankful is a good thing and having great weather is a wonderful thing to be thankful for. Mom and Dad also have all of you to be thankful for.

Love the poem and you’re right, UPS will not deliver there.

Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Scritches all around and a hug to mom. ♥

That poem for the photo this week is absolutely SPOT ON! We remember Cooper was in deep snow needing help when you took him in and gave him a HOME. So very sad to learn about beautiful Tuna – we know the Food Service Girl and family will miss Tuna so much……gone but never forgotten.

Hugs, Teddy and Mom Pam

We thank the veterans of our countries and always remember.
That is a very cold picture. I am very glad we don’t get snow like that.
I was heartbroken to hear about Tuna. Even though I knew it was imminent it is still a huge shock when it happens. He and Flynn were virtual besties and shared blog adventures together.

We always that the veterans we meet…petcretary has a few vets at her pwrk, and there is also a wall of honor there, for those vets we have served at our faciality, both past and present.
When I was at the beginning of my second job, eons ago, long before I came to the USA, I was caring for veterans exclusively…it was both humbling and interesting to hear all their many stories.

Your poem made me feel all chilly, LOL!!

Tuna will be so every missed. I knew the Tabbies from way back in my Catster days…starting in 2009. Tuna was such a youngster then…
