Ten Days of Tortie: Day 5
Today and every day, we are so very thankful for our health and home.
We are thankful for the pie on our plates, and for all of the food in our stomachs.
Most importantly, we are incredibly grateful for our family,
and for the wonderful friends we have in all of you.
We are, of course, entering all of these blessings into Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.
Now, we didn't forget that today is also the Thoroughly Poetic Thursday challenge, which is hosted by handsome Angel Sammy and Teddy.
This week, we've made it all the way to the letter X. That sure is a tough one, isn't it? We had a suggestion from a certain kitty's mom, though, and that very kitty is the one who stars in our poem today!
Chimera the Xenobiologist
Have you met Χίμαιρα?
Oh me oh my, what does that say?
Speaking Greek is not my forte.
A little translation will make things much clearer.
Yes, that's better, you can call her Chimera.
So then, have you met Chimera?
She is the Xenobiologist of the era.
She studies life from lands all over the place,
But most especially those from outer space.
Chimera the Xenobiologist seeks answers on the moon,
And even all the way to Neptrune!
She hopes to make friends with those who live among the stars,
And she especially longs to meet those who hail from Mars.
Chimera the Xenobiologist can even give you a lesson or two,
As she recently had a grand breakthrough.
After all, she spotted a UFO up in the sky,
And now Chimera the Xenobiologist knows that extraterrestrial life is no lie!
To visit the real, lovely Chimera, do be sure to click there on her name! And, of course, here is Chimera the Xenobiologist's little doodle:

Our Tip of the Day:Since it's the big day itself, today is our last day of Thanksgiving tips, and we're going to sound like a broken record. As we have mentioned on many other holidays and other days of the year, please be sure to ensure your furbaby's safety if you have visitors or if foot traffic increases at your home on Thanksgiving. Especially for indoor furbabies, reduce or prohibit their access to the door, so that they can't slip outside when Thanksgiving visitors arrive. If you are worried that your kitty or pup might get underfoot and thereby put themselves at risk, perhaps consider setting them up in a safe room all to themselves. This could also reduce the risk of them being fed or stealing dangerous foods during Thanksgiving meals. Also try to ensure that your furbaby has identification, such as in the form of an ID tag and/or microchip, in the case that they might escape. After all, as if we haven't said it before, it's always better to be safe than sorry!
