Thankful from Rocky and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday #35

My Ginger Nephew Rocky and his Mom have a great big 

Last week during Rocky's snip, chip and clip event his favorite Vet Tech,Miss Tara, took
extra blood to send to a special lab for Feline Leukemia re-testing.  
On Tuesday August 25, 2020 3pm I received this email from Rocky's Mom Kit

Vet tech just called: Rocky’s results are NEGATIVE!!! 
I’ve been crying tears of joy!!!

Side note from Mom Kit regarding the first weak positive
many months ago.
It concerns me greatly that vet suggested euthanasia for weak positive...I was so shocked that day, so I agreed, but  Dad of Rocky objected profusely, saving Rocky’s life.

Today we join Two  SPOILED CATS 
Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.

Here is today's inspiration

What a beautiful arrangement of succulents...the white Gnome spoke to me.

Oh if I were a Gnome
I'd be forever happy
to call this HOME.
It might sound sappy  
Multilevels to roam 
So much to see I'd never be alone.


  1. that are the best news of da year!!! oh we are so happy!!!! we agree, a gnome would love this little pot-kingdom ;O)

  2. We are so happy for Rocky! YAY! What a beautiful home the gnome has!

  3. Hari OM
    first - love that image and your verse to match it; what a proper wee garden work of art that is!

    Second - HOORRRAAAHHHHH FOR ROCKY!!! And it is so true and I have often wondered about tests for such things in humans too; then all sorts of unnecessary treatments are endured... which can sometimes amount to an equivalent of euthanasia. Rocky is so totally pawsome and a real hunk and I know he and Kat and Pup are going to have lots of fun times together. Hugs and whiskereies, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. Oh what good news about Rocky....! I think you could TOTALLY make a little fairy garden - you are clever - you could plant little tiny succulents in a "quilt" pattern which would make it even more PERSONAL for you as a quilter!! Go for it!

    Hugs, Pam

  5. That is the absolute best news for Rocky! Rats to the original vet who suggested euthanasia.
    That is a sweet poem for the fairy garden.

  6. Sweet poem and happy for that little Gnome! I am incredibly happy that Rocky has a negative for FeLV. May he continue to have a great life with his lovely family!

  7. even if i am not a gnome, i would love to own this home. tis beautiful. good job on th epoem. I am soooo happy Rocky's life was saved. he is so beautiful and looks so soft and cuddly. happy dance for the negative test

  8. That's great news for Rocky. We love your poem about the life of the gnome.

  9. OMC we've got leaky eyes with joy!!! Thank COD for Rocky's Dad!

  10. We enjoyed your cute Gnome Home! Boy, let me tell you, that is the best news ever Rocky, we were pretty sure that was the case but now we're all happy dancing with you!!! Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  11. It's good to hear this news about Rocky. I feel that veterinarian's are too quick to suggest euthanasia these days.
    I agree with Brian's comment today: find another vet!

  12. That is the best good news!

    I love that pot of succulents.

  13. Hooray! I am so glad Rocky is OK, your Dad is awesome! It is so hard to find a good Vet, even when we do, the assistants take over after a while, and it's back to looking for a good Vet again!

  14. That's good news about Rocky! Hooray!

    What a clever and cute arrangement of succulents. And a wonderful poem too!

  15. What wonderful news, Rocky. We're doing the happy dance here as you are there.

  19. OMD, recommending euthanasia for a weak positive without retesting?! What a terrible vet! I'm so glad that cooler heads prevailed and the retesting saved the day!

  20. WOWZERS!!! That is awesome news about Rocky!!! YAY!!!
