Thoroughly Poetic & Thankful Thursday
Our friend, Sammy (onespoiledcat), is the creator and host of Thoroughly Poetic Thursday. Our friend, Brian (Brian’s Home), is now the host of the Thankful Thursday blog hop. As much as possible, we will be combining these two weekly events into one post beginning today.
The prompt letter for our poem this week is, “V.” This is for us probably the most difficult prompt to date. Regardless, we managed to eek out another poem. It is entitled, Visiting.
Visiting our blogger friends makes us happy,
Whether meowing cats or dogs yappy.
We try to see our friends each day
And read what it is you have to say.
We like to know what you are doing
And even what blogs you’ve been viewing.
When Mom deems her life more important,
We may not always get to leave a comment.
So we are using Sammy’s special poetry day,
As well as the blog hop for Thankful Thursday,
To tell you all how much we like to visit
And just how important you are to us.
Our blogger “family” is absolutely the best,
And for your friendship we are truly blessed.

We used our poem to say thank you to all the bloggers who have befriended us during the past four plus years. We have two additional things for which we are thankful as well.
Recently we were named both one of the top 100 cat blogs as well as one of the top 50 cat blogs. We are honored and so thankful for these designations. Though many of our blogging friends are on one or both of these lists, many others we believe should’ve been selected were not. Regardless, we thank Thoroughly Reviewed for selecting us to the list of 50. This is the statement from their blog: “We wanted to take a moment and recognize bloggers who are passionate about our feline friends and who are producing great content on their blogs.”
Additionally Kitties Blue would like to thank Feedspot.com for listing The Cat on My Head as one of the Top 100 Cat Blogs Every Cat Lover Must Read. This is the web-site’s introduction to the selected blogs: “Love cats and looking for information on cats? Whether you are already a cat owner or looking to home a cat, reading cat blogs can be your guide to everything cats. So we have compiled the Best 100 Cat Blogs list which provide inspiring, beautiful and most relevant stories, pictures and videos on cats all brought together on a daily basis. Also find information on cat health, behavior issues, general cat care advice, breed information, product reviews and much more.”
With so much for which to be thankful, this is our entry in this week’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.
We have been struggling a bit, but we will hope to take on the Thankful Thursday, inspired by your lovely example. We wish we could do more to help others – there seems to be so much to do…..
