Thankful Thursday

I have all the thankfuls this week. I share the first couple with Dad Tom.

💥 Spending Thanksgiving with family for the first time since 2017.

💥 Sawyer remaining seizure free while we were away and being seizure free for the past 17 days.

💥 Finishing addressing all Cooper Murphy’s Cat Scout holiday cards and getting a good start on Kitties Blues’ cards.

💥 Finishing all the decorating except for the trees.

💥 Kizmet falling in the bathtub (on a gloomy and sad day yesterday) giving me a good chuckle. I am even more thankful that I was no longer in the tub, and it only had a few inches of water remaining.


Wish Peace

Kizmet warming up after her unexpected dip in the tub.


💥 Having great, supportive and loving friends.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

After missing last week, I am back to participating in the Two Spoiled Cats’ (Angel Sammy and Teddy) poetry challenge.

Here’s this week’s photo followed by my short poem.


Wish for Peace

How peaceful our planet looks from afar.
I think I shall wish upon a star
That peace will spread across the earth
In time for the anniversary of Jesus’ birth.

What a lovely list of thankful things. A wish for peace is my hope too. Beautiful

I’m glad Kismet survived all that water. I chuckled too.

Way to go,Sawyer. My fingers and toes are crossed that seizures are a thing of the past.

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

SO glad about Sawyer and all the other good news. So much to be thankful for each week and let’s hope Sawyer keeps up his good reports. I keep saying how scared we were for him, but it doesn’t go away!!! Love to you all.

What a wonderful list of thankfuls. We’re always happy when Sawyer goes longer without a seizure. We hate to admit it but we think Kizmet would have made us laugh falling in the tub too.

The Florida Furkids with love and whisker kisses to Sawyer from Noelle

Those are all good thankfuls, especially when another sad anniversary is happening tomorrow for you. May all your Kitties Blue help give you comfort.
(And I wish I could have been a fly on the wall for that tub mishap!)

That’s a perfect and beautiful poem….we would wish for the same thing – “if only” there could be peace by Christmas. SO HAPPY our little buddy Sawyer has been “you know what”-free for 17 days. YAY. Poor Kizmet had a bit of a surprise bath huh? Well – no harm since nobody was in the tub at the time!!

Hugs, Teddy and Mom Pam

That is very good news about Sawyer. I laughed about Kizmet. Eric would jump in the bath with us, but he was obsessed with water.
I was early with my cards this year and got all the overseas ones posted last Friday. Usually I have a last minute rush.

Oh, Your poem is wonderful!! And yes we share the same sentiment…though my poem is nothing like yours…

Poor Kizmet!

Hooray for Sawyer having another long period of being seizure free. I pray that will continue.


Meows, purrs, hugs and MOLs are greatly appreciated. Please no hissing, spitting or scratching unless you want one of us to whap you!
