Thoroughly Poetic Thursday
The weeks just keep flying by, and summer is almost here. The inspiration photo Teddy and Angel Sammy’s mom, Pam, selected this week is beautifully summery and magical. That magic is what sparked our poem.
Listening for Fairies
If you’re a cat and you listen
Carefully, you can hear the fairies
Whispering, singing and laughing,
As they skip, dart and dance
Beneath the bright green foliage.
If you close your eyes and open
Them very slowly, you might even
See a nebulous outline or two.
Fairies are magical, so humans
Cannot hear or see them. Cats
Must be careful when watching
The fairies and not get too close
Or call attention to themselves.
That might cause a nosey human
To draw near and unknowingly kick
Or squash the delicate creatures.
Once disturbed, fairies will flit away
On wispy wings, never to return.
And life without fairies is sad,
Wearisome and colorless.

Kitties Blue and I have three thankfuls this week. The first one is huge.
- Two days ago BlogPaws made the following announcement:
It is with a happy heart that we share this news with you. Chewy will be transitioning the BlogPaws organization back to one of the original members, Chloe DiVita, who has guided the community through its successes for many years.
This transition will take place July 1.
When I sent an e-mail to Chloe saying how happy I am to have her returning, she replied:
I still really have no idea what this will mean, but I’m happy to be uniting the community again and figuring it out!
This is great news for all those who are part of the BlogPaws community, and I can’t wait for July 1.
2. Our second thankful concerns our Sawyer. He has been seizure free now for a month. He can be a little stinker about taking his meds, in order to get additional stinky goodness, but a few extra spoonfuls won’t break the kitty food fund or turn him into a pudge, so…
3. The track pad on the computer was replaced and it didn’t cost an arm, leg and kitty paw.
Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by Brian. To join, blog about your thankfuls and click on the badge below to hop over to Brian’s Home.
