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.
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.

That’s a terrific poem and we love the TV kitty! Those are all really good thankfuls. We really liked The Jersey Boys too, we’ve seen it twice. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
Great poem and wonderful thankfuls. XO
Oh my that was an excellent poem! We can almost feel like we were there.
We loved the addition of “Miss Kitty” to the photo and poem. Great Thankfuls too
The Florida Furkids with love and whisker kisses to Sawyer from Noelle
Love the poem and wow, petting Raleigh! Good progress!
I have to crack up at this because I think we spend more time watching our cats for entertainment than the TV. And we only have two cats!
Those TVs can really take attention away from what is important.
That was a great story for the poem.
Great job on the poem! You gave us a whole story with Miss Kitty being ignored then forgiving everyone for that and taking up her spot next to Junior for the night. Congratulations on being able to TOUCH Raleigh. LOL Score!!!!!!! Thanks for being poetry partners with us……………
Hugs, Pam and Teddy too
Oh, that is a great poem!!
I wish we would still have such family gatherings, to share the fun and companionship together…something that seems to be lacking these days, sadly.
Wow, you got to pet Raleigh! Hope he lets you do it more and more.
