PROWLING PUSSY CATS

by Janet Blue on April 12, 2018

Throughly Poetic Thursday

Cooper Murphy is our poet this week for Teddy and Angel Sammy’s poetry day at Two Spoiled Cats. Not only did he write the poem, but he also took the liberty of slightly altering the inspiration photo. As Cooper Murphy and Teddy are BFFs, he’s hoping he won’t get into too much trouble for doing this.

This is our altered photo followed by Cooper’s poem.

 ON THE PROWL

We’ve strolled this market,
and our paws are wet.
Why we came here, we now regret.

We’ve searched high & low for silvervine
Or possibly some tasty, fresh nip.
Whatever, it wasn’t worth the trip.

Tomatoes, potatoes, and spinach,
Zucchini, turnips and chard…
All this searching is too hard.

Plodding along with no umbrella,
We’ve meowed with every vendor,
But none had nip or vine to tender.

I was given a carrot, but I’m not a bunny.
A nice lady offered Sawyer some escarole,
But that sounds like something for a mole.

All this walking has made us quite hungry,
And we believe it must be time for dinner
As we feel ourselves getting physically thinner.

With each step our empty tummies
Are loudly rumbling and growling,
So for today we’ll end our prowling.

If the sun is shining bright tomorrow,
We may come back for more searching,
As of nip and vine we are most deserving!

That was great:) My cats wrote about the lack of nip. Silvervine is the best. I hope this comment shows up, my first one did not.

Oh, what a fun poem this is, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer! That must be quite an adventure, going to the market. Really, though, why must they make it so hard for kitties to get their fix?

Kitties, it’s raining get under one of the tables, quick!

Oh my what a SUPER poem you have for today! I think it would be wonderful to wander around one of these markets searching for wonderful bits that fell on the ground or even a stray mousie??? I’d hope for bits of cheese instead of a carrot that’s for sure! Too bad most of these markets don’t have a special booth for kitty shoppers though isn’t it. Thanks for being part of Sammy’s Poem challenge every week. It’s so much fun isn’t it?!

Hugs, Teddy
