Thoroughly Poetic Thursday on Friday

We were so busy with thankfuls yesterday that I saved our poem for today. In fact, we are bursting at the seam with information today. Hope you can stay with us to the end.

I share the poetry inspiration photo for this week with apologies to Angel Sammy and Teddy. I did take a bit of “poetic license” and enhanced the photo just a teeny, tiny (19-pounds worth) bit.

Nom, Nom, Nom

This sandwich looks phenomenal,
And I am certain it is totally nom-able.
I can smell lots of goodies tucked inside:
Chicken, tuna, sardines, salmon
Cheese, trout, duck and bacon.
When I finish I’ll need a bromide.
But I ‘m dismissing heartburn as a consequence,
As my appetite is truly bottomless.
So step aside so I can take a bite.

Before moving on to the usual Friday topics, I want to let you know how our commentathon turned out. Combining our comments on the Tuesday and Wednesday posts, we had 39. I rounded this up to $40 and purchased 40 votes for Kizmet in Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Superhero Sidekicks Calendar Contest. Kizmet had dropped from fifth to sixth and then eighth place in the contest, but the recent votes have pushed her back up into fifth place. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to HWAC by voting for Kizmet, click on the link.

Kizmet and I thank everyone who made a comment and those who made individual donations. We 💓 you!

Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #265

As we usually do, the Kitties Blue and I are participating in the Friendly Fill-Ins blog hop hosted by Lorianne (Four-Legged Furballs) and Ellen (15 And Meowing). They post the sentence to be filled on their blogs on Thursdays, and participants post their fill-ins on Fridays. I had to ask for some assistance this week, and fortunately two of the Kitties Blue volunteered. We all used teal Italics for our fill-ins.

1. If I were one of the 7 dwarves, I would be Sleepy, as I never get enough sleep.
2. I think television is good and bad. It all depends on what you decide to watch.
3. Kizmet: No paws, butt or other body part on a human’s placement is a rule that I regularly break.
4. Sawyer: I can’t believe getting treats whenever I ask isn’t more popular.

Feline/Friendship Friday

Saying Good-Bye is Never Easy


A dear and special friend, Cat Scout Timmy, received his wings on Wednesday. His dad, Pete, will be posting about it today. When he does, please visit and leave your condolences at Tom Cat Commentary by Tim. Mom’s response when she found out was “no, no, no!” This has left us totally heartbroken. We will remember and honor Timmy on our Sunday Selfies blog hop.

Cat World Domination Day


Finally, the Kitties Blue and I must apologize to Summer and Angel Sparkle for missing Cat World Domination Day yesterday. We always participate, but with a birthday, anniversary and the Calendar Contest happening, it totally slipped our minds. Summer had a great party, and we hope you were able to attend.

Whether or not Kitties Blue had the opportunity to celebrate, they want to assure you that they dominate us every single day without fail. Dad Tom and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
