Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Cooper Murphy is our poet this week. He wrote a poem about himself and his BFF, Teddy. He interpreted the inspiration photo a bit liberally, but then it’s meant to be just that…inspiration.

Here’s the photo followed by Cooper’s poem.


Cat Scout Adventure


Cat Scout Adventure

I’m a Cat Scout, and I like to explore
Whether in a cave or at the shore.
But I must be careful and super vigilant,
So I don’t have any type of accident.
In fact it’s always good to have a buddy,
Like my gingersnap pal, Cat Scout Teddy.
We can watch out for each other
Exactly the same as real brothers.
Helping each other up if we fall in the dirt
Or going for help if one of us is hurt.
We have our compass and a snack,
Rope and a first aid kit in our backpack.
As Cat Scouts we remain purrpared
To keep our wits and never get scared.
Teddy and I are strong and brave.
Now please excuse us while we explore this cave.

Thankful Thursday

Cooper Murphy not only asked to write today’s poem but also requested the opportunity to do today’s thankful. His thankful also pertains to Cat Scouts. He, Teddy and Cat Scout Ætheling participated in a Cheerleader Workshop and tried out for the Cheer Team at Cat Scout University. All three made the Cheer Team and received certificates, badges and their official cheer uniforms.

Cooper Murphy will share the cheer he wrote for the try-outs in a future post.

My girlfriend loves dogs in general but she wants a cat now and not any kind of cat, a Maine coon cat.

What an adorable poem! I love the “purrpared” pun – good use of that one there. Sounds like such a sweet relationship between human and kitty!

That is a super poem, Cooper Murphy! I thought it looked like a rock bridge more than a cave…but who knows!

Oh Cooper what a SUPER DUPER poem you did for the photo challenge! Wouldn’t it be fabulous to explore that big cave? I bet Cat Scouts could spend a week there and never get tired of turning over rocks, exploring side caves, finding fossils and just having fun. Thank you for including me in your poem today because it’s truly just plain PAWSOME. So happy we are friends at Scouts and “just because” !!

Love, Teddy
