Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Another week has sped by and it’s time again to write some poetry. Angel Sammy and Teddy (Two Spoiled Cats) found another vintage photo for us. In keeping with the black and white theme, Kizmet has joined the photo. She represents Miss Kitty in my poem.

Miss Kitty vs. the Magic Gadget

Miss Kitty never lacked for attention
But when her humans were watching television.
The new fangled gadget
Attracted them like magic,
And they forgot she even existed.
In getting them to notice her, she was persistent—
She sat atop the TV and meowed.
When that didn’t work, she would yowl!
Her attempt to get some petting was sabotaged
When Junior swept her off to the garage.
She decided it was better than being ignored
And took a nap where old blankets were stored.
When Junior came to fetch her, she hid
To make him regret what he did.
But when supper time came around,
Miss Kitty was easily found
Waiting by her bowl for her feline food.
When finished she mewed her gratitude
Then followed Junior off to bed
Where she slept happily by his head.

If you’d like to try writing some poetry, check out Two Spoiled Cats (by clicking on the poetry badge) for next week’s inspiration photo. Please read Angel Sammy’s poem when you visit. He sends it to Teddy each week from the Rainbow Bridge, and he’s a masterful poet.

Thankful Thursday

In addition to poetry, Thursday is when we like to share the things for which we are thankful.

I am thankful I got to pet Raleigh. It was the middle of the night, and he was asleep on Dad Tom’s and my bed. He never saw me coming, and I petted him about 10 times. He has really nice fur.
I am thankful for getting some yard work done this past week.
Kitties Blue are thankful for a lot of catio time.
Dad Tom and I are thankful we got to see a performance of the musical, Jersey Boys, on the weekend.
Kitties Blue and I are thankful for all our friends, followers and supporters.
