Thankful Thursday

 I want to first give all my thanks and gratitude too all my great friends who helped with Cat-O-Lympics! ::Blows Kisses With Paws:: It was really fun for us and I hope for all of you.

Guess what? Tomorrow is my 400th post!

We realized that next weekend is the real Academy Awards and realized it's too soon to get it together for the Acatemy Awards, so I think we will do it the week after. It will be a No Rule activity with no winners or losers, just a celebration of anything movie related. So write a screenplay, make a movie, make a movie poster, anything you can think of and post it during that week... more details to follow.

So the other night I was napping on my bed while Mom slept, when suddenly I heard her talking to me...

"Hey sweetie, wanna snuggle? Come here, I'll give you scritches..."

I was just considering the offer, when I noticed she wasn't really speaking to me at all. She's been bringing a square tissue box to bed with her, cause of her cold, and I guess to a sleepy, nearly-blind human, a tissue box with the tissue tamped down in the middle resembles a cat body with ears.

"Finny come on!" She begged.

Kleenex Cat remained unimpressed, and refused to submit. I could hardly keep from snickering out loud as Mom went back to sleep, rebuffed. So last night, when it happened again, I couldn't help myself.

"Hey Finny, are you here for pets? Come here."

"Mew?" I said in my sweetest, you wanna touch my soft fur voice as I hid behind the pillow. "Mew (come and get it then)" I offered.

She reached out, way out, to try to pet Kleenex Cat. I was laughing so hard by now that she spotted me behind the pillow. You should have seen the double-take she did. We had a good laugh over the whole thing and I got my chin scritches after all.

If the laughter really is the best medicine, your Mummy should be all better soon!

Thanks for hosting the CatOLympics Finny!

I'm thinking that Ginger might have to do something in the "dramatic" actress cat-egory for the Acatamy awards...but we'll see.

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

MOL! MOL!

WE've never done the Acatemy awards before ~ so we're gonna enter! (Once we've persuaded mom!)

Kea said...

Hahaha, we loved the Kleenex Cat story. We bet your mom felt a bit silly. At least you finally got your scritches!

Huffle Mawson said...

Mum says we might not have recovered from the Competitive Napping enough to participate in Acatemy Awards yet. I'll work on her though.

Elin said...

Thanks for the Cat-O-Lympics too, I got the chance to show my talent! *wink*

Fin, the Olympics ROCKED! And you do too. As for the trick you played on your Mom. . . you're now our official hero. That was SO funny!

Eric and Flynn said...

Bwahahaha! That is so funny!
Thanks for hosting the
Cat-O-Lympics. We had a great time.

The Kitty Krew said...

Heeeheee, oh Finny, you're so mean to your sick mom...but that is pretty funny...heehee.

Thanks so much for coming up with the Cat-O-Lympics, we had such a great time participating in some of the events, it was a fun week! Great job.

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

The Island Cats said...

Haha! Fin...your mom needs to wear her glasses!! Otherwise she's gonna be petting a kleenex box! We hope she's feeling better.

Thanks again for organizing the Cat-O-Lympics! And we'll see what we can do to celebrate the Oscars. We love making movies!

The Bumpass Hounds said...

hey Fin,
How devilishly clever of you to trick your mom like that; BOL! (or MOL in your case) Doesn't say a lot for your figure, or your mom's eyesight, if you look like a Kleenex box with tissue tuffed ears. Ha-ha-ha-ha-he. You must crack yourself up.
OBTW: We loved the Cat-O-Lympics and thank you and all of your helpers for pulling it off so well.

We loved the Cat-O-Lympics.

And we are very glad your Mom confused the Kleenex Box with you, and not the other way around. ;-)

Simba said...

Poor Mom. I think those Nightime Cold Medicines were causing her to hallucinate!

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

You are such a trickster Fin!!

Marg said...

Thanks so much to you Fin for hosting the Olympic games. They were great fun. Our human probably isn't up for any academy awards. She is not a big movie goer and we don't have a video camera, so we will just enjoy all the entries.

One Cats Nip said...

Oh now that was funny your mom must have really been out of it

CatLadyDiary.com said...

the tissue box....you made me laugh and laugh!

LizzyBean said...

Heehee... sick moms get pretty muddle-headed! I have come down with a bad cold too, so feeling about like your mom.

Sparkle said...

That was a funny human story, Fin! They can be trouble sometimes, but they do have their entertaining moments.

The aCatemy Awards sounds like lots of fun. My human is wasting her time doing tax stuff this week, but I hope I can make her squeeze in something fun.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Fin our mom saw this and just laughed - it is totally something our dad would do!

And we don't know a lot about movies but we always have fun with your events so we are in!
