Thankful Thursday

We usually begin our Thursday post with our Thoroughly Poetic Thursday poem; however, we are switching it up this week. Cooper Murphy is so much improved after having a high fever and being quite sick at the end of last week. His right eye is not 100% yet and he continues to get ointment in each eye. He also has meds to take for a few more days. But he should make a full recovery for which we, especially Mom and Dad, are all grateful. Cooper and the entire family thank you for the purrs, prayers and POTP.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by our pal, Brian. To join in and let all your friends know for what you ate thankful, click on his badge.


Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

This week’s photo prompt is a day at the beach. Having grown up in California, the beach is a place our humans really enjoy visiting. We, however, have no interest in such a thing, as evidenced by our poem. That little boy in the photo doesn’t look very enthusiastic either!


Kitties Blue have no intention of visiting the ocean.

No Ocean Vacation for Kitties Blue

We’ve never been to the beach.
The distance makes it out of reach
For cats who don’t like the PTU,
Which includes most of the Kitties Blue.
Even a short car ride is not enjoyed,
So a six-hour drive would surely make us annoyed.
Sand between our toes might be okay,
Much like the litter box we’re in each day.
But we definitely don’t like wet feet,
Which might occur if the ocean we meet.
We’ve all seen the video of Mau in the pool.
None of us plan to be similar fools.
Taking a dip in the great big ocean
Would be an incredibly stupid notion.
We’ll just ponder this photo picked by Teddy’s mom
And stay home in bed safe and calm.
