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.”
