KIZMET WRITES: “I DESERVE A TREAT!”

by Janet Blue on July 7, 2022

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

I bet you won’t be surprised that we have another silly cat poem this week. Kizmet popped into the inspiration photo provided by Teddy and Angel Sammy from Two Spoiled Cats. And just like Cooper Murphy did last week, she wrote the poem as well.

 

I Deserve a Treat: Photo of carhop at an A & W from the 1950's with the addition of a grey cat peeking out the car window.

 

I Deserve a Treat!

Oh miss, is one of those drinks for me?
It is terribly hot in this car with no A/C.
I’m certain it’s plain for you to see
That I am overly warm and incredibly thirsty.
Actually, you know what would be my dream?
A extra large bowl of vanilla ice cream.
I’m on my way home from a trip to the vet;
It’s a really lousy place to take your pet.
I got a shot and they trimmed my claws—
That procedure should be against the law!
I was told if I was good, I could have a treat
So add to my order some hamburger meat.
I believe these things will satisfy my needs
And prevent me from making my human bleed.
Thanks so much in advance for your help today.
I promise Mom will leave a big tip when she pays.

I actually found this photo amusing, as I worked for A & W for a few weeks in the summer of 1969. I was fired! The reason why escapes me. (This photo obviously is from at least a decade earlier.)

Thankful Thursday

Cooper Murphy is thankful for the last class of the school year at Cat Scout University. He received 100% on his quiz and earned this cool merit badge.Graphic with a large octopus and tiny white cat

Octopuses are fascinating, and both Cooper and I learned a lot in the class.

Sawyer, Dad Tom and I are thankful for his enjoying four weeks without a seizure. (He’s been much better about eating his med-laced noms.) Sawyer’s also thankful for his birthday gifts from Noelle, especially the 30-ounce container of Temptations!

All of the Kitties and I send our thanks to each of you for your support, following and friendship!

Thankful Thursday is hosted by Brian. To participate post on your blog for what you are thankful. Enter Brian’s URL in your browser to pop over to Brian’s and enter his blog hop.

THE ADVENTURES OF PERIWINKLE & STINKY: PART CXLII

July 5, 2022

Anxiously Waiting Stinky paces nervously around the teleportation tunnel. As usual, he is anxious for Periwinkle’s arrival. He’s hoping she didn’t get too freaked out by last night’s fireworks and is hiding in the closet at home. It seems to take forever, but finally Periwinkle comes tumbling out of the tunnel with the usual whoosh. […]

HAPPINESS IS A SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCE

June 27, 2022

Sparks I was looking for a Spark about gratitude, when I found this quote. Though gratitude is mentioned, this Spark says so much more.     I felt I needed a photo that made me happy to accompany the Spark. This one of Astrid peeking out of the tunnel is from 2015, and I did […]
