Thunder on Thursday (or is that Friday?)

Thunder here.

Finally it is my turn to have some time here on the blog. Life here has been pretty blah lately aside from the Pest and her gardening skills or lack thereof. Don't you think you see an awful lot of my pest of a sister looking like she is bossing me around all the time? But that's not really true. As the Momster likes to call me, I am the Gentle Giant. I let Ciara get away with all that nonsense because she is so darn cute. I like to concentrate on being the nice guy. When the Momster is feeling sad or sick, all I have to do is put my furry head on her lap and I get a big smile. And as you can see in this photo, I really do like Ciara - sometimes she makes a good pillow for me too.

If only I could get her to push in a bit so I wouldn't have to hang my head here.

We received two more awards. This first one is from our kitty furiends Au, Target, and Boris from Katz and Other Tales.

And the second one is from Clarissa at Clarissa's House of Cats.

Thanks to our furry feline furiends for these special awards.

And the explanation for today's title:

This guy has been hiding in his crate all day and not eating again. Phantom says there will be Thunder on Friday, not Thursday:(

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

What a sweet and gentle big brother you are. Hoping Phantom is feeling better soon.

Wild Dingo said...

Juno's coming right over to have a little "chat" with Phantom. then she'll pupnap him and take him back to CH where she will give me many sad Juno eyes for all the chicken cordon bleu or boeuf bourguignon that I make so she can share with the Phantom... just to put a little meat on his bones she says. she'll have a sibe chat with him and convince him he'd better eat or she'll sit on him...

Wyatt said...

Thunder, you are a GOOD brother!

Sorry Phantom is not eating again.
I hope you get a big dose of sunny weather, maybe some nice weather and fresh air will bring his appetite back.


Amber DaWeenie said...

OK Phantom...lets get on da program...da eating program dat is!

Thunder you is so sweet to your little sissy. I can tells dat you luvs her. Jus' like I luv my brudder, Max (DaOdderWeenie)...Oh no, did I jus' say dat?

pam said...

Phantom you must eat and feel better immediately. Thank you...

Bobo and Meja

Sue said...

Phantom, we think you're right. Tsar wouldn't eat tonight and Morgan won't go outside which means there's a storm in the area.

Phantom, we are sorry you are hiding in your crate and not eating. We knows it worries your Mom. We are purring the bad weather goes away.

Thunder, we thinks you are sweet.

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Please feel better Phantom! We know how our mom gets when we don't eat so we are sure your mom is worrying. Please feel better!! Thunder and Ciara, you two make a team and are adorable on the couch together. Somehow we don't think the pest is really a pest at all anymore! As far as the names of the week, we are confused here because we did Wenesday almost on Thursday. Feel better Phantom..please!! Lots of love, Holly and mom

Gus said...

Tell Phantom we hope he is feeling better so he can post "the rest of the story." And Teka says to tell Ciara that Princesses don't do gardening.


Sagira said...

Glad to hear from you Thunder. :)

Sorry to hear Phantom is hiding and not eating. No good. I hope he feels better soon. :(

Maggie Mae said...

Ciara is SO lucky cuz her has you as a big brudder!
I am gonna send more puppy prayers to Phantom to helps him feel better too!

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

road-dog-tales said...

Congrats on your awards! You MUST be awesome if kittehs like you, too :)
We think you should be a model for carpet or furniture advertisements, you look so bee-yoo-ti-ful sitting there among all the pretty things. We could NOT have all those delicate things in our house!

BeadedTail said...

Thunder, you are such a sweet boy to take care of your sisfur and the Momster! We hope there isn't any Thunder on Friday to scare poor Phantom.

TwoSpecialWires said...

We'll take your kind of Thunder any day, but we're sad that Phantom isn't eating and has wanted more quiet time. We're counting on him knowing what he needs, and getting it taken care of, so he'll be back really soon. Hungry and social.

Please pass our hugs
Jake and Fergi

Tanuki Maxx said...

You're a great brother Thunder, caring and responsible! Way to go!! We had loud thunders and rain on Thursday noon too! Was that you?

We hope Phantom will find his appetite again, meantime lots of cheers and well wishes for him and the princess too!


bermudabluez said...

YOU are adorable! Poor Phantom...hope he feels better is no fun at all to be sick.

Santa, Minnie and Christmas said...

You are such a beautiful pack, we just love all your pictures!! Poor Phantom, wish we could just hug him and make him better. Please give him a hug for us. Hope he feels better soon!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Thunder, you are a wonderful, caring brother...momma says you sound a lot like Quinn. We hope Phantom works up an appetite and comes out to be more social...he is such a sweet boy and we hate to think he is under the weather.

Thanks for your prayers and good thoughts for Gregg, Dragon's dad. They worked! He got to leave the hospital this afternoon and must be at home resting for 4-6 weeks...the pups are overjoyed are all of us!

houndstooth said...

Aww, Phantom, we're sorry you're not hungry!

Thunder, you sound like the kind of guy every family needs at least one of!


rottrover said...

Ciara, you sure don't leave TD much room on the couch!! He is a sweet brother. We like Juno's suggestion - a stern sibe-to-sibe talking to and some gormet food or else! Hhmmmm, maybe I should take her advice... Oh Juno!!

VICKYFF said...

Well deserved! I really enjoy your blog and am impressed by your finds. Keep it up!
Sweet memories.

ForPetsSake said...

Oh Thunder - you are such sweet boy! I can imagine how cuddly you are when cuddling is needed.
I hope poor Phantom is in top form tomorrow - is this a storm anxiety, or another bout of ickiness?

Lorenza said...

I know you like a lot being with Ciara as much as she likes being with you!
Phantom... you are sooo good sensing those thunders! I hope it will not be a very bad one!
Please take care... and ask Momster for some treats! You need something in your tummy!
Kisses and hugs

Stella said...

It is good to hear from you, TD! You are such a handsome guy it is fine to hear that you are also a gentledog too.

Phantom will do what he wants, I guess. Just love him and let him go his way.

And little Sister? Enjoy it all, whether she is playing, eating or gardening, she seems to enjoy life.

Cheers and hugs,

KB said...

Thunder, I'd smile a huge grin if you snuggled up to me! Both the momster and the pest are very lucky to have you!

And, please try to comfort your brother Phantom. I hate seeing him so worried.

d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

Poor little woofie... I'm sending purrs.

scotsmad said...

We know you really love Ciara--at least most of the time.

We had thunder yesterday....very loud.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

Holly and Khady said...

Khady is a pest, but I love her to bits too! So, I totally get it!

I sure hope Phantom starts to eat again. I do worry about the poor guy and wish we could come up with something that would totally make him eat! Have you tried raw lamb?


powder-puff said...

Hey there gang!
Nice to meet you

You definitely look like a good cuddle partner

Lots of love

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Hi Thunder,
The gentle giant Mom calls you?? That is sweet!!
Sorry Phantom is under the weather.
Something is going on with him. Do you give him digestion pills? I give Bambi Renew Life chewable digestion pills and they have helped her a lot!!
Prayers for Phantom.
xx, Bambi & Fern
We really love our strawberries too.

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Poor poor Phantom -

We hope nothing toooooo nasty khame to pass -

As fur Ciara, maybe woo and Kona need to meet fur a play date


AFSocksScylla said...

Ciara, The Mom wants to know if you are the one trying to dig your way into my back yard. If so Mommy says come to the front door and she will let you in, but no more digging OK.

Channon said...

Hope Phantom is feeling better!

Anonymous said... are such a sweetie, Thunder. And a super duper big brudder, too!

Ciara - maybe you and me should starts a gardening club.

And Phantom - I hope you feel better soon. And eat something!

Wiggles & Wags,

PeeS. Thank you for your advice on my bloggie today. I thinks you might be kinda right that I'm skeered abouts her taking me away and not bringing me back. She always does but you just never know.

Cyber-sibes said...

We just love love love seeing pics of woo & Miss Ciara together - she really is a cutie pie.
Oh, Phantom.... sure hope woo feel better again soon. Its almost spring, will that help?

sprinkles said...

Wow, it feels like forever since I've visited! Feels good to be back.

Sorry I've been away so long, school is just keeping me sooooooo busy!

I worry about Phantom. I hope he gets to feeling better and starts eating again.

sprinkles said...

the booker man

the booker man said...

pee pee s -- i just did the same thingie as miss sprinkles and forgot to woof gratsers on your shiny awards!! :)

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Thunder, you and Ciara are just too cute! Mom wishes Steve and I would cuddle like that. We used to, but now I'm too bossy for that, she says.

Life is pretty boring here too. Maybe now that it is starting to be nice weather again, we will go on hikes and have something to write about!


Mrs. JP said...

Thunder is so gentle and what a cute face. I bet he helps Ciara "garden" sometimes!

FiveSibesMom said...

Beautiful picture of you Thunder!!! It looks like a portrait! You are such a good gentle sport with Ciara, who obviously just adores you! You and Ciara couch cuddling is so darn cute! And Phantom looks cozy...I hope he eats soon...I know our Harley goes on food strikes when she's stressed too. Eat, Phantom, even just a little? (We mix in some plain Activia yogurt with kibble and that seems to be very tempting...maybe Phantom would like some if you haven't tried it already?)
