Thoroughly Poetic & Thankful Thursday

Unfortunately, the petretary is taking a really long time to get better. Because of that, Cooper Murphy has taken over the first part of this post for Read Across America Day. He’s even written another poem.



The Lorax

Today is a day to celebrate reading.
It’s not something I do, but I hear it is pleasing.
It is known as Read Across American Day
And celebrates author, Dr. Seuss’, birthday.
I never met him but heard he wrote good books.
I think one was maybe something for cooks.
That book was called, Green Eggs and Ham,
And features a character named, Sam-I-Am.
He even wrote about a cat wearing a hat.
Can you imagine something as silly as that?
Today I am a dressed as a guy called a Lorax.
He seems to be a well-known environmentalist.
“I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees.”
Is a famous quote by this guy and now me.
For this reading day, the Lorax I’ll be
Instead of ginger tabby, Cooper Murphy.
If you can, go read a book and hug a tree.
You’ll feel great mentally and physically!

This is my poem for Angel Sammy’s and Teddy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday. Our prompt letter for his week is “L.” If you’d like to read some other “L” poems you can find the poems or links to them at Two Spoiled Cats.

Now that I have taken care of my responsibilities, I am heading to a party at the Tabby Cat Club.

Cooper Murphy as The Lorax

Thankful Thursday

Lily Olivia is our thankful kitty this week. She was overwhelmed by all the comments and kind words and wishes she received for her birthday. She’d especially like to thank all those who mentioned that she doesn’t look her age. She said that it was a terrific day, and she plans to be around for next year’s birthday. We are entering Brian’s Home Thankful Thursday blog hop. You can do the same by clicking on his badge.


PetSafe FroliCat Fox Den Winner

Finally, we are so excited to announce the winner of our giveaway. It is Annabelle and her fursibs at Manx Mnews. If you didn’t win this time, don’t be too disappointed. Tomorrow Kitties Blue will be reviewing the FroliCat DART DUO Interactive Laser Light and giving away one of those as well. So make certain you leave a comment here prior to Thursday, March 9, at 5 p.m. EST.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

That’s a great costume, Cooper! Awesome poem. We hope your Mom feels better soon. We don’t know how the weather’s been where you are … but our temperatures have been all over the place which makes it hard to adjust and feel good – even without being sick.
