Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Another fun, inspirational photo was provided by Teddy and Angel Sammy for their poetry challenge this week. Raleigh thought he’d enjoy joining the photo, and the poem is written from his point of view.


Two children and a ginger cat inspect the teeth on a dinosaur fossil.


Oh My, What Big Teeth You Have!

Those are the biggest teeth I’ve ever seen.
I bet that dinosaur was really mean.
Meeting him would have given me quite a fright.
He’d probably gobble me up in one bite.
But the jokes on him, as he is dead,
And I’m right here staring at his big head!
I am certainly lucky to be a cat—
Dinos couldn’t have slept on anyone’s lap.

Thankful Thursday

Kitties Blue and I are always happy when we participate in Brian’s Thankful Thursday blog hop.

Cooper Murphy is thankful for earning a new merit badge from Cat Scouts University after taking a course and passing a quiz about jellyfish.


Though, Sawyer had a seizure on Sunday afternoon; he, his dad and I are thankful he went just shy of six weeks without one.

Kitties Blue and I are thankful we were able to make a donation to Feral Friends Community Cat Alliance by purchasing $51 worth of items (eight crinkle balls, 10 pounds of cat litter, and two 24-can cases Fancy Feast kitten food) from their Chewy Wish List in lieu of a $40 donation. Lone Star Cats selected Feral friends to receive the donation from our comment-a-thon celebrating Misty May and Angel Mau’s birthday.

And, as always, we all are thankful for your friendship, support, following and comments.

I’ll let you know next week if Dad Tom and I are thankful that for the first time Wednesday night the kittens were allowed to remain out of their enclosure. (They got out once unbeknownst to us until we discovered them romping around the following morning.) This is their first authorized night of freedom.

Finally, we have many friends living throughout the state of Florida, and we are praying that all remain safe.

That’s a great poem! Audrey is right, we’re lucky to be cats!! Since we were getting ready for Ian, Raz hasn’t done the class yet but we’ll bet it’s another great one.

The new kitties have freedom. That’s the best part of all.

I’m sorry Sawyer had a seizure, but he sure went a long time without one.

Love the poem and love seeing Raleigh on those teeth. Cute.

Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Scritches all around, a smooch to Cooper Murphy and Sawyer and a big hug to mom. ♥

Raleigh looks fascinated by the size of the dino’s teeth! Love the poem – it was a fun photo to think about and write a poem for wasn’t it. We were so happy when Sawyer went six whole weeks without a seizure and hope he keeps up the LONG BETWEEN trend……Kittens on the loose at night? Better get some earplugs! HAHA

Love, Teddy

Love the kitty addition to the dinosaur picture, and the poem! Sorry to hear about another seizure but glad when they are spaced far apart. We are purring here for Florida too.

Oh, I love your poem this week! Raleigh really added a fun twist!

Sorry that Sawyer had another seizure…we’ll send POTP his way and pawyers, too for a long time of not having them, maybe even not ever.

It will be fun to read about how the freedom for the kittens went…
