Thoroughly Poetic Thursday
Poetry Day with our pals, Teddy and Angel Sammy, is one of our favorite days on the blog. Mom loves to write poetry. Though all her poems aren’t masterpieces, she still enjoys engaging her imagination.
Each week, Angel Sammy writes an exceptional poem and transmits it to Teddy from the Rainbow Bridge. We suggest you click on the badge at the left to pop over to Two Spoiled Cats and read it. While there, check the Comments for links to other poems.
This week’s inspiration photo, with a couple of senior citizens, made Mom think of herself and Dad and how they are aging. The poem refers just as much to them, in the abstract, as it does to these older gentlemen.
A quiet day in the park
Chess with a best friend
No need for chit chat
Companionship and activity
A beautiful, sunny day
Just what they need
Research has shown…engaging
Their brains, being social
Will keep seniors healthy, vibrant
It doesn’t matter who wins
These friends will be back

Each Thursday also is when we give thanks for the things in our lives for which we are grateful.
We kitties are always thankful for a great home with good noms and treats, a catio and two humans who are very indulgent and loving.
Mom, Dad and Sawyer are thankful for eight days without a seizure for Sawyer, after he had two in one day with only a five-day break from the previous one. Mom is really thankful that our great vet found a new pharmacy for Mom and Dad to get Sawyer’s phenobarbital at a savings of $34 per bottle. She’s hoping Sawyer will like the tuna flavor she selected for him. We are hoping she spends that savings on extra treats. That really would be something for which to be thankful.
Mom won another Tuesday Teaser badge from Two Spoiled Cats this week by correctly identifying the five cities pictured. She wasn’t first, but right is right.
Finally, we are thankful you joined us today.
Purrs and paw-pats, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer
