Throughly Poetic Thursday

Time again to join our friends Teddy and Angel Sammy from Two Spoiled Cats for a bit of poetry. They provided us with an amazing inspiration photo this week. In fact, I would love to visit this gorgeous place. Based on our poem, it appears as if all nine Kitties Blue agree. This beautiful locale, however, is in New Zealand, so neither the Kitties Blue nor I will be able to check it out firsthand. But, all nine actually made it into the photo this week.

A Magical Place

What a magical place we have recently found.
It’s a wondrous and exciting cat playground.
The tranquility and beauty are mesmerizing.
About it we are unable to stop rhapsodizing.
The little, grassy trails are fun to explore.
What feline could ask for anything more?
Sawyer says the nommy treats are missing.
We told him no negativity or hissing.
Stinky wants to adventure here with Periwinkle.
We think that would make her eyes absolutely twinkle!
We want to stay here now and forever,
Breathing in the exotic aromas and fresh air,
But mom says then it would lose its appeal
And no longer be such a big deal.
But we all must disagree with her.
It makes us purr and will always hold its allure.

Thankful Thursday

On Thursday, we also like to share our thankfuls with you and join Brian’s blog hop.

😺 Last Friday Dad Tom and I went to Charlottesville and met up with one of our nephews from California and his eldest daughter. She will be attending the University of Virginia as a Freshman in the fall and was touring the campus. We are thankful and excited that she will only be two hours from us, giving us the opportunity to see her with some regularity.

😺 I am thankful I was able to scrub our porch furniture, the porch railings and window sills and some of the floor yesterday. While I did that Dad Tom pressure washed our brick walk. With the new chair and settee cushions and pillows I bought, our porch is going to look great this summer.

😺 I am thankful that a bunny was visiting in our side yard yesterday. We also saw two in the alley when we returned home Friday night. I have also been seeing the chipmunks regularly. Being able to observe these little critters makes me very happy. I am just waiting for the hummingbirds to reappear!

😺 Finally, Kitties Blue and I are thankful to everyone who joined our Sunday Selfies blog hop as well as everybody who follows, reads and comments on our posts. But, most of all, we are thankful for your friendship.

Kitties Blue are having a little contest. The first person to identify the three cats missing from the photo on yesterday’s post will win a surprise prize. You have until noon EDT on Friday to leave your guess on that post. Good Luck!

Thanks for joining us today. We will return tomorrow with Friendly Fill-Ins.
