Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Our “poem” today for angel Sammy and Teddy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday is more of a dream and a plea than a poem. I did use one of the prompt words for this week, which features the letter “I.” Those words are (1 Imagine, (2 Idiot, (3 Iron and (4 Icky.


Imagine a world with no homeless cats.
Imagine a world with no hungry cats.
Imagine a world where cats are not euthanized.
Imagine a world where shelters are unnecessary.
Imagine a world where every cat has a loving home.

Now stop imagining and do something!
Rescue, TNR, sponsor, foster, adopt, volunteer.
Together we can end the cycle
Of too many cats and not enough homes.
It’s not impossible.
It just takes time, dedication and effort.

Kitties Blue and I know those of you who read our blog feel the same way as we do and that most of you are doing what you can toward making this dream a reality. Maybe it won’t happen in my lifetime, but I pray this will become a reality in the not very distant future.

Comment-a-thon Winner

It’s taken a little longer than Mau and Allie would have liked to let you know the winner of their Anniversary Comment-a-thon. The first person selected by did not respond to our e-mails, so we moved on to the second name.

The winner is Linda Arthur Tejera from Living With My Ancestors. She selected Florida Poodle Rescue to receive the donation of $80. We are making the donation in memory of her Maltese, Emmy, who was adopted from Florida Poodle Rescue in 2000. Emmy got her wings in July, 2014.  She certainly was a cutie.





Thankful Thursday

Finally, as we do each Thursday, we are joining Brian’s blog hop. This week we kitties are ever so thankful that the heat wave has ended. Our temps are in the 80s during the day. That’s hotter than Mom likes, but it is purrfect catio weather.

We also are thankful for the new screen doors on the catio. The old ones had solid panels at the bottom, but the new ones have screen all the way to the bottom (with mesh in between). Now we can lie on our bellies and watch the birdies land on the unscreened part of the deck and then scare them! So much fun. Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy joined up yesterday afternoon for this new game. Sorry, we don’t have photos.

Hope your Thursday is a thankful one as well.
