Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

It’s Thursday, and that means it is time to write some poetry. I am continuing with my theme of adding a cat to the inspiration photo provided by Angel Sammy and Teddy (Two Spoiled Cats). This week, Sawyer has the honor of joining the photo and the poem.


Photo of a blended family: three dogs and a cat riding in a car.


The Blended Family


We cannot wait to get to the park,
So we can chase Sawyer and bark.
He doesn’t really mind the pursuit.
In fact he thinks it’s quite a hoot!
He runs up trees and taunts us.
To some our game is ludicrous,
But it’s the way we get our exercise.
It’s also fun to shock and surprise
The other occupants of the park,
Especially when we leave together at dark.
We know that this is an anomaly.
But we are a happy, blended family.

Thankful Thursday

Each Thursday we also join the Thankful Thursday blog hop at Brian’s Home. This week I get the first thankful. I was the First Right Guesser on the Tuesday Teaser at Two Spoiled Cats and won this cool badge.



I am also thankful spring has finally arrived, and the trees and flowers are in bloom. It definitely elevates my mood. I shared a photo on Monday from one of our flower beds. If you missed that post and are still waiting for spring to arrive where you live, check out “Spark of Love Among the Tulips.”

As always, Kitties Blue and I are thankful for each of you who visit our blog and support us. Your friendship warms our hearts.

Kitties Blue and I would like to extend our apologies for our lack of visiting and commenting. If you saw yesterday’s post, then you know that Kizmet basically has taken over my iPad. And Astrid has decided that if the computer comes out, it is her cue to sit on me and the keyboard. She never lets me use the iPad either. If she is around, I have to hold it above my head at arms length just to look at it. As the weather continues to improve, I’m praying all the Kitties Blue will start spending more time on the catio, which will give me the opportunity to read your blogs.

Thanks for your understanding.
