Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

The Two Spoiled Cats, Angel Sammy and Teddy, provided us with a particularly amusing, inspirational photo this week. I did my usual and added one of the Kitties Blue to that photo.


Petting is free: Photo of three frumpy and grumpy old ladies playing bingo with the addition of an orange tabby cat being petted on the stomach by the middle lady.


It’s difficult to tell, as Cooper Murphy has spread himself across the table, but these ladies are playing bingo, which I took into account in my poem. Unfortunately, it isn’t much of a poem.

Petting is Free

Don’t look so grumpy ladies.
It’s just a silly bingo game.
I know you can’t resist my floofy tummy,
And you won’t lose any money.
Petting is free unlike those bingo cards.
So get your fingers busy; make me purr—
I promise to put smiles on your faces,
And your bingo addiction I’ll cure.

Thankful Thursday

Each Thursday Kitties Blue and I also like to shares the things for which we are thankful, as part of the Thankful Thursday blog hop hosted by Brian.

First of all, Stinky asked me to thank those, on Periwinkle’s and his behalf, who take part in their weekly adventures. If you are not one of their regular readers, check out their Tuesday post. They visited Normandy, France, to commemorate D-Day.

Cooper Murphy is thankful that I finally got my act together and helped him complete his Cat Scout craft project for May. We made cat planters out of soda bottles. We made a small Kizmet and a large Mau.



Admittedly, I am not a very good artist or painter. Mau’s nose and mouth should have been a half to a full inch higher. However, I do think it resembles him. Both Cooper and I are thankful to Angel Cat Scout Sammy P’s mom, Ellen (15 And Meowing), for providing the projects and instruction each month.

Finally, Kitties Blue and I are grateful to all our friends and everyone who follows and supports us!
