Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Thursday is here, and we have a poem for you as part of the Thoroughly Poetic Thursday poetry challenge hosted by Angel Sammy and Teddy. This week’s inspiration photo is a real doozy and was fun to write about.

We are positive Sammy, who transmits his poem to Teddy from the Rainbow Bridge, wrote a terrific poem. So, after reading our poem, please visit Two Spoiled Cats by clicking on the badge at left. In addition to Angel Sammy’s poem, you can find links to other poems in the comments section.


What Was He Thinking?

Did this prince get carried away…
Thought he needed a castle for every day?
Or does he have a slew of wives,
Built them all the same castle not to cause strive?
How does he know in which castle to lay his head
On any particular night when he goes to bed?
Maybe the interiors are not identical,
After all that would be most sensible.
He needs to keep from getting confused,
As his wives surely would not be amused.
If he got them out of order and used a wrong name,
He might find in that home he could not remain.
Whatever the reason for so many castles.
We think everyday life would be a huge hassle.
The upkeep alone must be a vast expense.
Building a huge palace for all would make more sense.

Thankful Thursday

Each Thursday we also post those things for which we are thankful.

Kitties Blue have the big thankful for the week. Dr. Neel came on Monday for the annual roundup, and everyone got a clean bill of health.

Sawyer had already been to the vet office for his vaccines and blood work, so he only got weighed and had his pawticure. He was a total gentleman the entire time with not a hiss or growl. On the other paw, Mau was not a fan of his pawticure and hissed at Dr. Neel.

Cooper Murphy, who is always a purrfect patient at the vet’s office, was 19 pounds and three ounces of squirming ginger tabby. But even though he wasn’t all that well behaved, he lost 13 ounces since his weigh in at 20 pounds at the last roundup. That is truly something for which Dad Tom and I are thankful.

Here are a few photos from the the annual event.


Sawyer is thankful for all your support. His seizures have been happening more often. He had a gran mal on Saturday and another one yesterday. He seems to bounce back each time, but it still hurts our hearts that he has to suffer with these seizures.

Finally, Dad Tom and I continue to be virus free, as are all our friends and family (as far as we know).

We pray that everyone is staying safe and not rushing to resume a pre-virus lifestyle, even if you are in a state that is planning a premature “reopening.”

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by Brian. To take part, post on your blog for what you are thankful, then click on Brian’s badge to go to his post and link up yours.

We keep purring for Sawyer. It’s wonderful that Dr. Neel is doing a round-up for everyone at the same time at home, although we’re not sure that “wonderful” is the right word, MOL ! We’re glad you got good reports. Purrs

Great poem. Your kitties are lucky to have home visits from the vet. Praying you stay virus free and Sawyer stays seizure free. XO

Wow, how nice that your vet came to your house given the pandemic. Around here, vets are cutting back on their hours and they are all really busy. We’re glad everybuddy checked out okay..but we continue to purr for Sawyer.

More prayers for Sawyer. He was doing so well. It hurts my heart too. They are so precious. All of them, but especially Sawyer.

I’m thankful for you and all your kitties. You bring me smiles to see what you’re up to and how you’re doing.

Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Big hug to you and lots of lovies to all the kitties and especially Sawyer. ♥

I’ll bet you all are really happy the roundup is over. We sure hate that dear Sawyer is having bad ones and we’re all sending tons of purrs and prayers. Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

We loved the photos of the “roundup” and Noelle is so proud of Sawyer. Allie, on the other paw, wishes Mau would behave. We also MOL @ Cooper Murphy. We’re so sorry that Sawyer had another GM. We hope he can go back to more time in between.

Your Dr. Neel is so wonderful to do a round-up for everyone at the same time – so much easier – and it’s good to know everyone (including all humans!) are well. What makes us sad is poor Sawyer having yet another BIG seizure. We wish they would STOP bothering him. Good for Coop losing some weight – Mom wishes I would because it would be easier on her back when she has to carry me to the front door !! Sending hugs to all.

Love, Teddy and Mom

Hooray for good reports from the vet. We continue our purrs, and pawyers for Sawyer. He sure needs them, poor little dude.

That is an interesting poem on that picture…imagine making a subdivision like that, Yikes!

Meows, purrs, hugs and MOLs are greatly appreciated. Please no hissing, spitting or scratching unless you want one of us to whap you!
