Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

It is time again to share some poetry based on an inspiration photo provided by our friends, Teddy and Angel Sammy, from Two Spoiled Cats. I have been struggling lately with writing poetry, which is unusual for me. I loved this week’s photo and thought some verse might come easily. It didn’t. Regardless, here’s the photo followed by my poem.


Photo of a woman glamping with a small trailer with all the luxuries of home and five cats.


Even Kitties Need a Vacation

We love to go glamping with our mom.
She makes everything homey and warm.
Only serves the best noms to herself and us,
When we want more she doesn’t make a fuss.
We get to climb trees and nap in the sun,
Chase bugs and butterflies and run,
Chitter at all the birdies and dig in the dirt!
Mom makes certain we never get hurt.
We sleep snuggly next to her at night
Without a worry of bears or another fright.
Even kitties need a vacation now and again.
We too get bored lying around in the den.

Five of the Kitties Blue crew made it into the photo. See if you can spot them.

You’ll also be able to check out Angel Sammy’s poem for this week. He transmits it to Teddy each week from the Rainbow Bridge, and it is always a winner.


Thankful Thursday

Thursday is also the day when we like to share with you the things for which we are thankful. We have one huge thankful this week as well as a of couple smaller ones.

I received word yesterday that Kitties Blue, Periwinkle & Stinky and I have received a total of five Certificates of Excellence in this year’s Cat Writers’ Association contest. Of course, we don’t have the actual certificates yet, so I will wait until those arrive to share additional information.

Dad Tom and I are thankful the retaining wall we were unable to have finished when we put the addition on the house is now complete. I am particularly happy I was able to find and save some of my bulbs and irises after my garden was unexpectedly dug into.

Kitties Blue and I are thankful for those of you who have befriended us as well as follow and comment on our posts.
