Thoroughly Poetic Thursday
My plan for today had been to write a poem about one of the first two Kitties Blue, Skooter or Steamer, as the prompt letter for this week is “S.” After several false starts on a poem about Skooter, I settled on a limerick about Steamer.
There once was a cat named Steamer,
Who fancied herself a bit of a schemer.
But when she plotted and planned
To steal stuffed salmon from a pan,
She found she was only a dreamer.
It may not be good, but I did manage to STUFF it with esses.

On Tuesday evenings from 8 to 10 p.m. ET BlogPaws holds a Twitter chat. I try to take part as often as possible, as it is an excellent way to meet and connect with other bloggers as well as brand representatives. A few weeks ago the chat was about senior pets and a new Hill’s cat food especially for seniors. I shared this photo of Lily Olivia, stating she had been my constant companion for 18 years.
A few days later I was contacted by Hill’s Pet Nutrition, whose representative (@HillsPet) was one of the “chatters.” I was asked for our address so that Hills could send Lily some swag. This is what Lily received.
Lily Olivia and I are grateful to Hill’s Pet Nutrition for their thoughtfulness and generosity.

Wow, what a super awesome swag bag! That was very thoughtful and sweet of Hill’s. We love your poem too – it’s cute 🙂 Sampy sends a kiss to Astrid for every “s” ever used, and we all send lots of love!
It is always interesting where pets get their names. We usually wait until we get a feel for their personality before we name them. Chris is the only cat we ever had that we didn’t name. We tried to change his shelter name to Rudy (because he was rude) but it didn’t stick.
Trying to steal salmon makes for a great poem.
What a great surprise. How nice of Hill’s to send Lily Olivia such a nice bunch of swag. 🙂 We loved your poem, pals! Hugs!
