Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Cooper Murphy asked if he could join this week’s poetry inspiration photo provided by Teddy and Angel Sammy from Two Spoiled Cats. How could I refuse? He blended in purrfectly. And he has just enough cattitude to pen the cheeky poem below.


Frightened Fido 🐶: A golden furred puppy is afraid of a golden colored dog toy while a ginger cat looks on.

Frightened Fido 🐶

That puppy sure is silly—
Afraid of his doggy toy.
It made one little squeak,
And that canine totally freaked.
If he’d stand aside, I would
Show him how it’s done.
I’d bunny kick that thing
‘Til it cried, “uncle.” and was
Covered with my kitty spit.
Then it would be all mine!
Frightened fido would need to find a
New toy that wouldn’t terrify him.
I’d call him a scaredy cat,
But that would probably be derisive!

If you’d like to join in the fun of writing poetry, click on Angel Sammy’s poetry badge. That will take you over to Two Spoiled Cats where you can find next week’s inspiration photo. 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 in our opinion, it always deserves an A+.

Thankful Thursday

Kitties Blue and I have several thankfuls to share with you this week.

I am thankful that the hummingbirds have finally returned. In the more rural areas in the around here, they appear in April. In our  section of the city, they never show up until July. We’ve only had one male and one female Ruby Throated hummer. I hope more will appear before fall.

All the Kitties Blue what to thank everyone who joined us for the celebrations we had this week.

  • Our 11th Blogoversary
  • Angels Mau and Allie’s 7th Anniversary
  • Sawyer’s 2nd Anniversary of His 2nd Gotcha Day
  • Raleigh and Audrey’s 1st Gotcha Day

Sawyer is thankful for his CWA Certificate of Excellence. He received his in the same category as Audrey and Raleigh, Photography (Series). His win was for “Post-Seizure Selfies.”


That means they will be competing against each other for the Muse Medallion.

All the Kitties Blue and I are especially thankful for our last COE. The Cat on My Head was one of only two blogs recognized in the Blog/Website: Entertainment category.
