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, which is also the first line, rhyming with the last line.
My Caregivers are Quirky…
Look at that ridiculous hair.
I think mice must be living in there.
When the ladies are sleeping each night,
I root through to see what I can find—
Tidbits from breakfast or dinner,
The toy I lost sometime last winter.
If I get cold, I can burrow deep within.
And, though, I’ve never reached any skin,
I can still feel safe and stay warm
Knowing I won’t come to any harm.
You may find my mistresses a bit different,
But to all my needs they are ever vigilant.
I wouldn’t trade them for a mound of tuna jerky.

Thursday is also the day Kitties Blue and I share our thankfuls with you.
- Misty May has been on medication for hyperthyroidism for three weeks. She had bood work on Tuesday, but we haven’t gotten a report on that yet. Nonetheless, Misty May, Dad Tom and I are thankful that her weight has increased from 4.56 pounds to 4.88 pounds.
- Dad Tom, Sawyer and I are thankful Sawyer hasn’t had a seizure in nine days. Fingers and paws are crossed that he can stretch that out for at least a few more days.
- All the Kitties Blue are thankful their very own, quirky caregivers are celebrating their 49th wedding anniversary.
- All the Kitties Blue are delighted their two pots of catnip from last year came back this spring, and the plants are already big enough that they can enjoy the occasional sprig.
