Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Cooper Murphy is taking on the Two Spoiled Cats’ poetry challenge today. He has taken a bit of “poetic license” with the inspiration photo. He’s hoping Angel Sammy and Teddy won’t mind, as he and Teddy are best pals and roommates at Cat Scout University.


The Fortune Teller

Madame Mystique has been telling fortunes
Since she was a very young girl—
Tarot cards, tea leaves, crystal ball.
She’s been known to use them all.
Some people think she is a big phoney,
And all her predictions are just baloney.
I am counting on my fortune being real
And precious Tyebe will agree to be my girl.
In just over a month I get to ask her,
And if she says, “yes,” I’ll really purr!
Then maybe others also will believe
What Madame Mystique perceives
Is always exactly as it seams,
And she can confirm all your dreams!

On May 12, The Canadian Cats‘ Tyebe will turn two. Her mom has given Cooper Murphy permission to ask Tyebe to be his girlfriend on that day. He’s pretty certain she’ll say, “yes,” as the two are crazy about each other. All the Kitties Blue have their paws crossed for Gingersnap.

If you’d like to join Thoroughly Poetic Thursday, click on the badge above. It will take you to Two Spoiled Cats where you will find next week’s inspiration photo. While there, please read Angel Sammy’s poem. He transmits it to Teddy each week from the Rainbow Bridge. He’s a seasoned poet, and each of his poems is a masterpiece.

Thankful Thursday

Kitties Blue have the main thankful for this week. We had scheduled this past Monday for the annual round-up. That is when Dr. Neel comes to the house to give the gang their annual exams and vaccinations. Dr. Neel decided to postpone due to the virus, and the apaws around here has been deafening. I haven’t had the heart to tell them the appointment is not cancelled just postponed.

All of us at the House of Blues remain thankful that we and all our friends and family, as far as we know, are still healthy and virus free. I continue to pray that all of us remain that way.

We also received another First Commenter badge from Two Spoiled Cats for the Tuesday Teaser. We shared it with three others including our extended family at Friends Furever. That always makes it even more special.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by Brian. If you would like to join, post on your blog for what you are thankful and then click on Brian’s badge to be transported to his blog where you can link up your post.

CooperMurphy, I feel so honoured that you would focus on me in your poem. I feel like we’re already a couple but soon it will be official.

Happy Birthday Marg!

Have a happy day.

You know what?!? I have a set of tarot cards, and took a recent class on how to read them. This would be a great time to work on my skills, no?

APAWS for Cooper’s fabulous poem of intention to ask Tyebe to be his official girl. We think that’s a “done deal” already but of course respecting her Mom’s wishes to wait until she turns two is very polite. We predict it will happen! We wish Miss Marg a happy birthday too……oh and thanks for being our poetic friends every week!

Love, Teddy
