Thoroughly Poetic Thursday
I truly had fun with this week’s inspiration photo provided by Teddy and Angel Sammy from Two Spoiled Cats. The photo now includes all nine of the Kitties Blue, and I wrote a fantastical poem to accompany it.
I am not certain that even a cat could land on its feet if it fell from such an extreme height.
Nine Crazy Adventurous Cats
When the steelworkers heard it was take your cat to work day
All but two agreed that participating would be okay.
But the two only dissented as neither had a cat—
One was allergic, the other had a pet rat.
They decided to have the visit on their lunch break
To distract the felines by some cheese and steak.
Kitties were hoisted to the beam one by one
Until each was seated with their human.
We won’t pretend no fur was shed
Or that their sharp claws they did not embed
Into the skin of their humans and each other!
None of the tough men, however, did it bother.
They enjoyed introducing their feline friends
And telling tales of there playful weekends.
But after lunch it was time for the kitties to go.
They were lowered to the sidewalk ever so slow
Where they waited until quitting time in their baskets
To return home for cuddles and kitty treat biscuits!

I hope you had a laugh while reading this. It is a terribly far-fetched idea!
As you can see, poetry is lots of fun to write. I really think you should give it a try if you haven’t already.
Check out Two Spoiled Cats for next week’s inspiration photo by clicking on the poetry badge. When you visit, please take time to read Angel Sammy’s poem. He transmits it to Teddy from the Bridge, and he is a masterful wordsmith!
Kitties Blue and I have a very long list of thankfuls this week and will be joining the Thankful Thursday blog hop over at Brian’s Home.
Firstly, I am particularly thankful that after the host for The Cat on My Head broke our site, we were only down 20 hours and our site has been restored. Maintenance and an update of our host’s servers were scheduled for Wednesday afternoon. Unfortunately, during that process, our site started throwing out “critical error” messages, and neither I or any of you were able to access it. If you missed reading “The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky” yesterday, your two favorite cartoon tabbies hope you’ll click the link to that post at the bottom of this one.
Sawyer has two terrific thankfuls this week. He’s been seizure-free for 22 days, which is fantastic. But his second thankful is an even bigger accomplishment. His “story” has been accepted for publication in an upcoming anthology, Purrserverance, being compiled and edited by author and fellow blogger, Sierra Koester, from Fur Everywhere. He tells about his ordeal with regard to his seizures as well as his unauthorized walkabout.
I am thankful that my injured knee is finally improving after a cortisone injection. I’ve been able to slowly begin riding Peloton again and get around with my cane instead of my walker. I also have an appointment next month to get a second opinion on getting a knee replacement—something my current orthopedist is reluctant to do.
The Kitties Blue and I are always thankful for your support, following and friendship.

Hi guys, how are you doing? Have a great September.
That’s some thankful poem and an amazing photo with the kitties. Those are all wonderful thankfuls, really good ones. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
I think those men must be part cat.
What a great poem and picture !
Cute poem. I love it when you add your kitties to the photo and poem. Wonderful thankfuls. Hope the seizure-free streak continues. And congrats on being accepted for publication. XO
Love your poem, but that photograph makes me queasy. Love the kitties you inserted.
Lots of wonderful thankful things. Especially Sawyer having another seizure free 22 days.
Yikes on your blog issues. It happened to me a couple of weeks ago. I had a bad plugin. It was scary.
Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Scritches to the kitties, a smooch to Cooper Murphy and Sawyer and a big hug to mom. ♥
ConCats to Sawyer for being seizure free for 22 days AND for his story being accepted (with some help from Mom Janet)
Adding the Kitties Blue to that photo was brilliant! We love the photo and the poem!!!
The Florida Furkids with love and whisker kisses to Sawyer from Noelle
Well now, this is one fabulous poem for Angel Sammy’s Poetry Challenge! Love the kitties up on high with their humans getting a “cat’s eye view” of the ground WAY WAY below. We’re thrilled that Sawyer has been seizure free for 22 days and hope that record is EXTENDED on and on! Good news on the cortisone helping your knee – any relief is welcome isn’t it. It’s fabulous news too that Sawyer’s story is to be included in that anthology. Congratulations!!
Hugs, Pam and Teddy too
I am glad that Sawyer continues to be seizure free, and that your knee is responding to the injection.
My dentist had that photo in his waiting room years ago, and every time I saw it my stomach lurched. Seeing the cats made it lurch even more!
Happy News that Sawyer has been seizure free for so long! Also about his story being in the anthology, concatulations! I’m glad your knee is doing better, too!
Oh, yes, I figured there was a big problem with servers and such when I wasn’t able to find your site…anywhere.
Glad you’re back!
Good going, Sawyer, with a nice long seizure free period. We will pawray it continues, way way longer.
Nice to hear that your knee is responding well to the cortisone…and we hope you will be able to get a new knee to fix other issuers with it.
That is a fun poem, but I think our kitty angels would not want to join their peeps for lunch way up there…if they were still earthly beings, LOL!
