Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

When Stinky heard about this week’s inspiration photo provided by Teddy and Angel Sammy (Two Spoiled Cats) for this week’s poetry challenge, he had the idea that it would make for a fun adventure with Periwinkle. Unfortunately he misjudged the situation, but he did write a poem about it.


Cartoon tabby cats, Stinky and Periwinkle go on a misadventure at a modern dance performance.


The Misadventure

Oh my heavens, watch your tail
Before it’s stepped on by that female.
What’s with all this jumping around?
Is this a modern dance or a hoedown?
Some guy just stepped on my paw!
If I see who it was, he’ll feel my claw!
I think this adventure was a bad idea.
I should have checked out modern dance on wikipedia.
Let’s skedaddle before we’re permanently crushed.
I declare this adventure a total bust—
Except Periwinkle did get to dress up!

Thankful Thursday

Kitties Blue and I always look forward to participating in Brian’s Thankful Thursday blog hop.

Sawyer is up first this week with a thankful, which goes to his girlfriend Noelle’s mom, Sharon. She recently took her kitty, Reesie, to a blessing of the animals along with photos of brofur, Raz, Noelle and Sawyer. Sawyer only went one week between seizures, and so he needs all the blessings he can get. It was so thoughtful of Mom Sharon to do that for him.

I am thankful for winning a Van Ness Pets Calm Carrier with EZ Load Slide Out Drawer, Hard-Sided Travel Crate for Cats and Small Dogs. It is big enough for two kittens or a cat up to 20 pounds, which means it is big enough for Cooper Murphy. Woohoo! And we now have enough PTUs for all of the Kitties Blue, which gives me peace of mind.

I am thankful that Audrey slept next to me on Tuesday night. That was the first time since the kittens have had their freedom at night that either has spent the night sleeping with Dad Tom and me.

Kitties Blue and I are thankful for your comments, support, following and friendship.
