Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

We have gone off script again today with our poem, and hope our Thoroughly Poetic Thursday hosts, Teddy and Angel Sammy (Two Spoiled Cats), will forgive us. Instead of writing a poem based on this week’s inspiration photo, Mom wrote a poem and created a meme to enter in The Sixth Annual Contest of Whatever! held by the Evil Squirrel’s Nest. If not for Teddy and Sammy’s mom, Pam, we wouldn’t even know about the contest, so we’re pretty certain they will forgive us.

A Squirrel Walks Into A Barre…

Bar…stupid, not barre.
I ain’t no prissy ballerina,
and this ain’t no juice bar.
I want the hard stuff:
Singapore Sunflower Sling
and make it a double.
That dang cat, Sawyer, has
been pestering me all day
with his, “Hey, give those
birdies a chance” and “get
your fluffy butt off the feeder.”
He’s just jealous ’cause he
doesn’t even have a tail.
So, what’s up with that?
And who the heck does he think
he is—the squirrel police?
He needs to mind his
manners or he’s gonna
find himself on the bizness
end of these teeths. I
ain’t gonna be intimidated
by no pussy in need of
a catitude adjustment.
I am the ruler of the yard,
the master of the bird feeder.
When that whippersnapper
learns to walk the high wires
or build multi-level tree forts,
I might give him the time of day:
Yeah, as in…”Beat in Buster…
It’s squirrel drinking time!”
I plan to taunt that little bugger
until one of us croaks.
No cat is going to push me around!
Now, where the heck is that bartender?

Just because we deviated from the Thoroughly Poetic Thursday plan doesn’t mean you shouldn’t visit Two Spoiled Cats to read Angel Sammy’s poem. It’s always a winner.  Click on the badge below to go to Two Spoiled Cats.

Thankful Thursday

Each Thursday, we also join the Thankful Thursday blog hop hosted by Brian.

Mom and Dad are super thankful that progress finally is being made on the addition with electrical, HVAC and plumbing being in process. The roof and windows should be installed next week, and Mom and Dad have selected bathroom fixtures, cabinets and countertops.

We like to give a Sawyer update on Thursdays, but we have nothing good to report this week. Unfortunately, he’s had two grand mal seizures this past week, just five days apart, and another visit to the Emergency Vet. Sawyer has asked to give you an update tomorrow. Though our little brofur hasn’t had a good week, we are thankful that he lives with us, and Mom and Dad are able to give him the love and care he needs.
