Thoroughly Poetic Thursday
It was a dark and story night… No! That’s how I had intended to start this week’s poem after I saw the prompt photo.
Light may be coming through the window, but this place made me think of a haunted castle and a scary ghost cat. Some other member of the household, however, had other thoughts and commandeered the computer. Here’s that kitty’s poem.
I like to zoom all through the house,
Chasing my brother or sometimes a mouse.
I sprint up the stairs as fast as I can
Then scurry on down again and again.
Stairs are a toy and a kitten’s best friend
Provided I don’t slip and fall in the end.
When tired I can rest quietly on a tread
Hoping to trip a human lost in their head.
They may say words not fit for young ears.
If that happens, I must quickly disappear.
If not, I may find myself put in timeout
Where I can do nothing but hiss and pout,
Until I’m released to start over again.
Because as a kitten it is not a sin
To play, run and zoom until I am pooped
And can curl up with my big brother, Coop.
For a warm, cozy snuggle until dinnertime
After which the stairs I will once again climb.
This time to bed for a night’s soothing rest,
So once again my humans’ patience I’ll test
As I resume my antics the very next day,
Turning stairs into my very own speedway.
When you’re a kitten nothing’s impossible
As my humans always will think I’m adorable.
And if I’m lucky, I’ll get some nommy treats
Even when I stealthily dive ‘neath their feet.
But I must remember never to hurt them too badly
As for me this only can end quite sadly.
If they are stuck in the hospital healing,
I’ll be left home alone with only hurt feelings.
So though I may think stair zooming’s a game,
I promise my humans, them I will never maim.

So it seems that the newest member of the furmily thought he deserved to be part of three consecutive posts. I’m hoping his fursibs don’t gang up on him for being such a blog hog. Though, he’s one tough kitten and can take care of himself.
We’ll be joining Teddy and angel Sammy for poetry day. If you’d like to read Sammy’s poem…maybe something to do with a stairway to heaven. We’re just guessing at that. Anyhoo…to read his poem and find links to those of others, click on the badge below.
Each week we join the blog hop over and Brian’s Home and let everyone know something for which we are thankful. That hasn’t been an easy task the past few weeks. We are grateful today that no other kitty has come down with the eye “icks.” Both Misty May and Cooper Murphy are still being treated and improving.

See you tomorrow for the Friendly Fill-Ins blog hop.
