Thoroughly Poetic Thursday
It was time last night to pull out our rhyming dictionary once again and see what we could come up with for this week’s poem. We had four prompt words to select from, and this week we actually used one of them. This week’s prompt letter is “S.” The words are 1) Sunny, 2) Shrimp, 3) Shoe and 4) Snuggle.
Here’s our poem.
Anybody Want to Snuggle?
When it’s time for a warm snuggle,
We don’t want to have a struggle
To get ourselves some prime real estate.
Where we can curl up and ruminate—
And maybe get a few good scritches
To ease any annoying itches.
We want to snuggle up really close
To a human who can be our host
For an evening of dreamy pleasure
And maybe a treat for good measure.
But another cat will due in a pinch,
As long as they don’t try to inch
Into a space we’ve claimed as our own.
Mom doesn’t want to hear us hiss or moan.
But if a human becomes available,
We find their snuggles more enjoyable.
So, please excuse us, we must say, “so long.”
Next to our humans is where we belong.

We know you cannot tell from this photo but Misty May and Calista Jo are not only snuggling with each other but with our mom as well. Sometimes to get Mom and Dad snuggles, we have to share.
We are purrticipating in Teddy and Angel Sammy’s poetry day at Two Spoiled Cats, as we do each week. We encourage you to write a poem and join in the fun. Next week’s prompt letter will be “T.” You can find the prompt words on their blog as well as links to other poems by clicking on the their badge.
We bet you can guess what Kitties Blue are thankful for this week. That’s right…snuggles. As the temperatures go down, the competition to snuggle with a human will become fierce. That’s when more kitty-kitty snuggling will become necessary. Until then, it is every cat for him or herself.
This is a blog hop hosted each week by our friend, Brian. To join in, click on his badge below.
Tomorrow is a big day in the blogosphere. It’s the day we all show off our “tocks.” We know many of you have been “showing-off” all month, but we have been keeping our tocks under wraps until tomorrow. No hints on which of us will be purrticipating. You’ll just have to drop by to see. Until then…

Snuggles are the gold medal in a kitty’s life!
YAY FOR SNUGGLES!!!! Mom said Sammy was a great snuggler and while I love to snuggle a LITTLE, I’m a better hugger than he was so I suppose all things balance right? Love your snuggle poem though – it’s brilliant and in your house I think getting a chance to snuggle with Mom must be like having to take a number at the deli!
Love and Hugs, Teddy
All of our furkids love to cuddle, except Kenzie (sadly). She does need to be near us, though. Or steal our socks to sleep with them. At night, George will come to visit a while. But, he and Grizelda hang out at night. Grizelda naps with Bill on weekends, before he leaves for the road. Usually, most all-night-sleepovers are me, Stella, Chloe Jo, Maggie, and now Clyde and Bee. Clyde and Bee cannot get enough cuddling. They have really come a long way from their feral instinct. Wow. xo
We love snuggles in any season!!! Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
Great poem and I love the photo, so sweet. Joanie is usually my only lap cat, but she has shared my lap with Brody.XO
What a pawfect poem for our rainy day! We are free to snuggle if you don’t mind snuggling with a woofie!

We are jealous of your snuggles, since no cat around here will jump in a lap! Only Chuck will sit quietly in a lap when he’s feeling poorly.
Yep, there’s not much that’s better than kitty snuggles! Especially now that the temps are dropping a bit! Great poem! 😀
S for Snuggles is the best…If Mommy or I could write, we too would have written about snuggles…. And Misty May and Calista Jo are not Mommy’s the best snugglers in the world?
That’s a great poem….snuggles are always good!!
Allie hopes Mau will be showing off his Tocks tomorrow!!!
The Florida Furkids with tons and tons of smoochies and loads of love to Mau from Allie
Aren’t snuggles just the best? Your poem sure does those snuggles proud! And what an adorable photo of Misty May and Calista Jo. We love how Calista Jo has her paw on Misty May’s back.
We hope to have something to share for tomorrow’s Tocktober festivities. The furbabies around here have not been all that cooperative, though, and are keeping their tocks to themselves. Well, at least we’ll get to enjoy a tock shot from one of you!
There’s nothing like some good snuggling. And now that the weather is getting cooler, we’ve been sunggling more. Great poem!
That’s a lovely poem – I got to snuggle with a bunch of preschoolers yesterday!
