Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Once again Mauricio has taken paw to paper to write a poem for Teddy and Angel Sammy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday. Our prompt letter for this week is “T.”

Tuxedo Cats

I have a tuxedo. I’m decked out in white and black.
Thankfully I don’t wear a top hat, as I’m a cat.
My formal wear goes from my ears to my toes.
While some cats have white spats, I have pantyhose.
If you’re a feline with more white than black,
Some may unwittingly call you a cow cat.
But I consider those white furs a dinner jacket.
You’re just as formal as I am; they need glasses.
Unless, of course, you like to wallow in the dirt
And scuff up that fine, pristine tuxedo shirt.
Then someone may think you really are a cow.
If that happens, you must let out a loud meow
To let them know you’re wearing special furs.
And once you’re clean they’ll know for sure,
You’re a proud and stunning cat in formal wear
Ready for a quiet day of napping or a fancy affair.
But whatever your color and type of furs,
You are special and should be proud of what’s yours!

Thankful Thursday

Screen Shot 2017-04-26 at 11.35.21 PMWe mentioned after the Cat Scouts Cardwood Derby that Denmaster would be sending Mau and Cooper Murphy a special prize, called Hooligan in a Can. The boys and I thought this was a joke, so we were surprised when a package arrived. And there it was, sporting a Cooper Murphy-like orange kitty on it’s label.

If you enjoy pranks and shenanigans, you’ll be clapping your paws in delight for Hooligan in a Can. Here’s what you’ll find inside:

  • Premium Catnip Toys, Silvervine, Valerian and Cat Treats to Get Your Cat High
  • Everything your hooligan cat needs for a night of shenanigans!
  • Euphoria-inducing catnip, Silver Vine and Valerian Root takes your cat to her Happy Place
  • Premium interactive cat toys (including the Red Dot game with 3 extra batteries) offer special appeal!
  • Got the munchies? Two packs of premium cat treats have gotcha covered.

Though this was a gift for Mau and Cooper Murphy, Kitties Blue all share and are thankful to Denmaster for this cool gift. Mauricio is working on a poem for Denmaster to express his gratitude. Sometimes he just can’t help himself when it comes to writing in rhyme.
