Thoroughly Poetic Thursday


This beautiful painting by Daniel Gerhartz immediately made me wonder where the cat was that should have been in the picture. Just as with the past couple of weeks, I didn’t find the need to write a lot to represent my feelings. So, here is another haiku.


Girl ignores story
Her teddy bear abandoned
Waiting for kitty

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday was the creation of Angel Sammy prior to his receiving his wings. He continues to challenge us each week with an inspiration photo. And, he continues to transmit a poem from the Rainbow Bridge every week. He’s been busy lately on the greeting committee with so many friends arriving at the Bridge, but I know he’ll have created a terrific poem to share with us. You can pop over to Two Spoiled Cats by clicking on his badge. After reading his poem, check out the Comments for links to poems by other bloggers.

Thankful Thursday

Kitties Blue feel exceptionally thankful this week for a beautiful family portrait Marv‘s mom, Barb, created for us. I think the Kitties Blue crew is  totally adorable.

I will be framing this to hang in our new bedroom, if and when construction (which hasn’t begun) is completed.

Mau also has a huge thank you this week for his sweet wife Allie for the wonderful birthday gifts she sent.  If you didn’t see Mau and Misty May’s birthday post, click here.

naturally like your web site but you need to test
the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding it very bothersome to tell the truth nevertheless I will surely come back again.

I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
The issue is something that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
I’m very happy that I stumbled across this in my hunt for something regarding this.

We agree. That picture is missing a cat…or several for that matter! We love the drawing Miss Barb did of all of you! It definitely is worth framing.

Great haiku. Kitties are more important than any story. I love the portrait Marv’s mom made. XO

Love the portrait and love the kitties that Barb did. I wonder if Marv helped? Probably, since he’s such a good boy.

Have a purrfect Thankful Thursday. My best to your peeps. ❤

Such a sweet little poem! We love your Marv Mom art, it’s fantastic! Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

Marve’s mom did a wonderful job. That was very nice. I see what you were thinking about the picture. The girl does look distracted like she is waiting for her kitty which she sees coming her way.

Miss Barb sure did a wonderful family portrait for you and it will look fabulous in the new bedroom for sure! We love your haiku for Angel Sammy’s poetry day – I am positive that the kitty you speak of is what the little girl on the floor is looking at. He’s there – wanting her to come play with HIM instead of listening to a story!

Hugs, Teddy

Love the pawtrait! It’s great.
And poor abandoned teddy. That made me really sad. I love teddy bears as much as kitties.
