Feline/Friendship Friday

We have had day after day of grey and gloomy skies and what seems like endless rain. Sawyer is displaying exactly how Kitties Blue deal with this type of weather. To be completely honest, I have had more than a few naps myself. What do you do when the day is gloomy and rainy?

Anyhoo, Sawyer is here to participate in the Feline and Friendship Friday blog hops at Comedy Plus and Create With Joy, respectively. Click on the appropriate link(s) to join Sawyer.

Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #213

On Fridays I try to participate to the Friendly Fill-Ins blog hop hosted by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Lorianne (Four-Legged Fuhrballs). It’s a great way to let our fellow bloggers know a bit more about ourselves. You can find the sentences to be filled in on both blogs on Thursdays.

I used teal italics for my fill-ins. Explanatory info is in parentheses.

1. I wouldn’t mind being stuck in an elevator with Hugh Jackman. (I know Ellen is going to say Nicholas Cage!)

2. Now that the formula shortage is fixed, I wish something could be done about the cat food shortage.

3. If I had to sum up my life in one sentence, it would read as follows: I have been blessed with a great husband, great friends, wonderful, furry companions and many opportunities to travel to foreign places.

4. Checking into a hotel, going to my room and finding it already occupied by a nice looking man about my age is an awkward situation in which I once found myself. (I returned to the lobby and was given a different room.)

Kitties Blue and I will look forward to seeing you again tomorrow when we will share some Caturday Art.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Today’s inspirational photo provided by Angel Sammy and Teddy from Two Spoiled Cats is too, too cute. I think the addition of Kizmet only made the photo more adorable. I hope you like the little poem I wrote to accompany it.


Kizmet's advice: grey cat with toddler in pink ruffled pants and aqua blue high heels.


Kizmet’s Advice

Please don’t step on me little one
Or fall on me with your pink ruffled bum.
You look rather wobbly in those high heels.
You might do better with some training wheels.
I think I’ll move just a wee bit further away.
You definitely look like you’re starting to sway.
Have fun dressing up in your mommy’s shoes—
Just don’t fall and get a big boo-boo!

Writing poetry has always been one of my passions. If you check out “The Human” tab above, you can see some of the publications where my poems have appeared. I am delighted that Sammy and Teddy give us the opportunity each week to explore our creativity within this genre. If you are not already writing poetry, check out next week’s inspiration photo over at Two Spoiled Cats by clicking on Angel Sammy’s badge and give it a try.

While visiting, don’t forget to read Angel Sammy’s poem. He’s a terrific poet!

Thankful Thursday

Thursday is also the day we give thanks. Unfortunately, sometimes being thankful can be difficult. With the continued war in Ukraine, yet another senseless school shooting and our dear friend, Jean (Cooper’s girlfriend Tyebe’s mom) having a stroke, we all are feeling pretty down. Days of gloomy and grey skies and tons of rain have done nothing to elevate our moods.

So today, we will leave you with our thanks for being our supporters, followers and most of all friends. Friends are what keep us putting one foot in front of the other each day. We send love to all and prayers for better days ahead.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by Brian. To participate, post on your blog for what you are thankful. Then, insert the URL from the Thankful badge in your browser to go to Brian’s and join the hop.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday Last week I missed Teddy and Angel Sammy’s poetry challenge, which I don’t like to do. I am back today with another altered inspirational photo. This time, I had a little help from Astrid.     The poem’s structure is a bit different. It consists of rhyming and off-rhyming couplets with the title, […]

Sunday Selfies: Week #404 Astrid and I snapped about ten selfies each, and this is one of two Mom thought was worthy of posting. The second photo is also of me, so you’ll see me again sometime soon. Astrid was sitting on Mom’s lap when she snapped her selfies. She couldn’t get a good angle […]
