Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

As we do every Thursday, we are joining Angel Sammy and Teddy from Two Spoiled Cats for their day of poetry. This week’s prompt letter is “M.” The four words suggested as topics are: 1) Marvelous, 2) Mom, 3) Mud and 4) Meow. It was a difficult choice, but we decided on mom. We must warn you, however, that our poem may not be what you’d expect.

Our Mom the Slacker

We wish the word nice described our mom,
But we can tell you that would be buncombe.
She could be if she’d give us more treats
Or something nommy off her plate to eat.

She doesn’t bring us visiting nearly enough.
She claims her time is filled with other stuff.
But we know that’s only a lame excuse,
So she can get away with this dastardly kitty abuse.

Nothing is more important than doing our bidding.
If she thinks otherwise, she is only kidding
Herself but definitely never these Kitties Blue.
We know when our mom is not telling true.

Anything that isn’t all about us,
Is just a lot of bother and fuss.
A mom should give 100 percent for her cats.
That’s just how it is; it’s a matter of fact.

What we want are lots and lots of scritches
And oodles of lap time without her bitches.
Of snuggles and cuddles we deserve lots more
And extra toys so we don’t become bored.

We think it might be time to go on strike,
Unless she begins doing exactly what we like—
Filling our bowls to the top with fresh fishes
And letting us lick all the human dishes.

We also want to stay on the catio 24/7,
As that would be our idea of total heaven.
But we suspect nothing will change,
And for a new mom we’ll need to arrange.

We hope everyone knows that we are just joking. Both our mom and dad are terrific, and we are all spoiled. But what cat couldn’t use more love and treats and toys!

Thankful Thursday

Prayers Please

We are not thankful, however, for is this new hurricane heading directly for Florida. Mom and Dad have personal friends in Florida, and we have lots of blogging friends there. We are especially worried for Mom Sharon and Allie and Raz (Friends Furever). Dad Bill remains in the hospital where he is safe; though, he still needs your healing prayers.

Please pray for everyone in Florida that they remain unharmed. It is our fervent wish that Irma weakens before reaching Florida and veers away out into the Atlantic far enough not to impact anyone living on the east coast.

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

That was a great poem. I agree that moms should only do things that you want done all the time. XO

I’m sure your mom is not really a slacker. Lol. Our prayers go out for everyone in Irma’s path, and that they stay safe.

Though we know the poem isn’t really true, we still think it’s a fantastic rhyme, Kitties Blue! It would be nice if the mom here doled out more treats and toys as well. Silly humans, always slacking on their duties.

We are sending many, many purrs and prayers to all those affected by Harvey and Irma.

Kitties, I’ve been away from home quite a lot this week, due to work issues. I fear all of the Eastside Cats will forget about me! The Hubby is taking such good care of them…they just don’t need me anymore…:::sob!:::

Why do our kitties always seem to want us to think they’re not thankful and/or don’t love us when we all know differently! LOL! We agree with you wholeheartedly about praying for those in the path of Irma. We, too, have bunches of friends and family in Florida. We’re still praying for those trying to recover from Harvey and for all of those wildfires in the northwest. God be with them all.

Humans may be frustrating and hard to understand at times, but they are good to have around! 🙂 We keep telling our mom to quit going to that work thing and spend more time with us. Then she mentions something about buying food, treats and toys so we decide it’s better she goes to work and makes money.
We are also worried about our friends in Florida. Mom’s work headquarters are also in Florida and another branch is in Houston so things have been kind of upside down. We pray everyone will be safe and that the hurricanes will just stop forming.

Teddy September 7, 2017 at 5:10 am

Oh my goodness! What a FAB poem you all crafted today even though your poor Mom bears the brunt of your frustration! Something tells me that this poem is crafted with a smile and I know your Mom also knows that you love her AND your Dad to bits so as we kitties “must” – we gripe and moan and complain knowing in our hearts that we HAVE IT MADE! HAHAHA Anyway, thanks for pawticipating in the poetry challenge. We are very VERY worried about Florida too……we hope Miss Sharon and EVERYONE finds a safe place to be while Irma blows through town. It’s scary.

Love and Hugs, Teddy

I had a belly laugh at that poem, but I think I would mew the same sentiments about my petcretary…aka Mom.

Irma looks so evil and menacing…and scary. We too are praying for its fury to abate or even go away. And Jose too…OMC:(
