Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Each Thursday, dear friends, Angel Sammy & Teddy (Two Spoiled Cats), provide an inspiration photo for those of us who enjoy writing poetry. If you follow our blog regularly, you know I try to add at least one of the Kitties Blue to the photo. This week, that honor went to Raleigh. He and I hope you enjoy his performance and my poem.

 Cat in the Chorus Line

They said my legs were too short…
And too furry
To ever join the chorus line!
But I practiced everyday
And came to an audition.
When they saw my high kick,
They burst out in applause.
Now I’m the token cat
With my very own red top hat!

If you haven’t been participating in Teddy and Angel Sammy’s poetry challenge, I recommend you give it a try. It’s the perfect opportunity to get creative. Check out Two Spoiled Cats, by clicking on the poetry badge, for next week’s inspiration photo. And please read Angel Sammy’s poem. He’s one of our very favorite poets.

Thankful Thursday

Thursday also is the day we share those things for which we are thankful.

The main and most important thankful for this week is the fact that I somehow managed to get our post notification e-mails  working again. And the authors of the plug-in have finally acknowledged all the complaints on the forum.

Last week I was thankful and happy to report that Sawyer hadn’t had a seizure in a few weeks. Unfortunately his streak was broken this past Friday. I am thankful, however, that I was with him when it began. He was under the edge of the bed, and I was able to get him out and wrapped in a towel before he could hurt himself.

Calista Jo, Astrid and I are thankful for those of you who read this week’s Looking Back post and left comments there.

All the Kitties Blue and I are thankful for you sticking with us through all my whining about the site issues.

Your support, following and friendship are always on our list of thankfuls.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by Brian. To participate, post on your blog for what you are thankful, then click on his badge to join the hop.
