Thoroughly Poetic and Thankful Thursday




Our prompt letter for today’s poem is “O.” After much thought, I was not coming up with a theme. Then our poetry host, Two Spoiled Cats Angel Sammy’s mom, Pam, suggested we each write about our newest (orange cat) family members, Cooper Murphy and Teddy. Sounded good to me.

Orange Cat Cooper Murphy 

Orange is the color of our tabby’s fur.
His sweet disposition makes him purr.
But he’s also quirky and silly,
Rolls around on his back willy-nilly.
He has a passion for the red laser dot,
Chases it around from spot to spot.
He‘s a member of the clean plate club
And is becoming quite a “little” chub.
My previous orange tabby was a mama’s boy.
For Cooper it’s birdies and squirrels he enjoys.
He spends his days on the catio on guard,
Where he can see the feeders and backyard.
After dinner he curls up and sleeps all night,
Until his tummy clock goes off at first light.
This orange kitty has made our family complete.
Thanks, Fiona, for bringing us this cat so sweet.

This is also Thank Thursday. Today I am most thankful for the suggestion of good friend Pam to write about our newest family member. I do feel a smidge badly that Cooper Murphy is being featured two days in a row, and I am certain I will hear some complaints from the other Kitties Blue.
