Thoroughly Poetic Thursday
Last week I missed Teddy and Angel Sammy’s poetry challenge, which I don’t like to do. I am back today with another altered inspirational photo. This time, I had a little help from Astrid.
The poem’s structure is a bit different. It consists of rhyming and off-rhyming couplets with the title, which is also the first line, rhyming with the last line.
My Caregivers are Quirky…
Look at that ridiculous hair.
I think mice must be living in there.
When the ladies are sleeping each night,
I root through to see what I can find—
Tidbits from breakfast or dinner,
The toy I lost sometime last winter.
If I get cold, I can burrow deep within.
And, though, I’ve never reached any skin,
I can still feel safe and stay warm
Knowing I won’t come to any harm.
You may find my mistresses a bit different,
But to all my needs they are ever vigilant.
I wouldn’t trade them for a mound of tuna jerky.

Thursday is also the day Kitties Blue and I share our thankfuls with you.
- Misty May has been on medication for hyperthyroidism for three weeks. She had bood work on Tuesday, but we haven’t gotten a report on that yet. Nonetheless, Misty May, Dad Tom and I are thankful that her weight has increased from 4.56 pounds to 4.88 pounds.
- Dad Tom, Sawyer and I are thankful Sawyer hasn’t had a seizure in nine days. Fingers and paws are crossed that he can stretch that out for at least a few more days.
- All the Kitties Blue are thankful their very own, quirky caregivers are celebrating their 49th wedding anniversary.
- All the Kitties Blue are delighted their two pots of catnip from last year came back this spring, and the plants are already big enough that they can enjoy the occasional sprig.
Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by Brian. If you would like to participate, post on your blog for what you are thankful. Then enter the URL from Brian’s badge in your browser.

That is a great poem. There is no telling what you might find under all that hair! Happy anniversary to Kittie’s Blue mom and dad!
That hair. I can’t even imagine the awfulness of having all that on my head! Loved Astrid’s part in the poem. Makes you wonder how often they washed their hair and how? Sawyer, you stay well. I am looking forward to your next adventure!
That’s a great poem. Happy anniversary. I look forward to seeing what you will do next year.
What a fabulous poem this week! Nice of Astrid to accompany those long-haired ladies in the photo. Even though this was a trend back in their day, it’s hard to imagine DEALING with all that hair. As for your Mom and Dad’s anniversary – we wish them MANY more happy anniversaries – they are the best Mom and Dad you all could possibly want.
Love and Hugs, Teddy and Mom Pam
OH, what a classic, wonderful photo and my mama and papa celebrted their 47th year together on March 31st. How the time flies. So glad for Sawyer, that sweetie.
Love the picture/poem! Congratulations on 49 years of marriage!!🎉🎉🎉🎉🎈🎈
Happy Anniversary!! That’s quite a milestone! Congratulations!
We are thankful too that Sawyer is doing well…and we pawray it lasts.
Love your ‘Astrid-ized ‘poem!
