Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

I had a blast “doctoring” this week’s inspiration photo provided by Angel Sammy and Teddy from Two Spoiled Cats. As I’ve been doing for the past few weeks, I added one of the Kitties Blue.

I hope this photo makes you smile as much as it does me. I honestly can imagine Cooper Murphy doing this if he was capable.

So here’s my poem for this week.

Cat & Kid at Play


I love scooting with my sister Nell;
Though, last week Nell fell!
She skinned both her knees,
And I went flying toward the trees.
But being a cat, I landed on my feet;
My knees never meeting the street.
Bandaged and finally healing,
Nell and I are again freewheeling,
Loving the feel of wind on our faces
And racing off to discover new places.
I’m just a cat who likes to have fun,
Scooting all day with Nell in the sun!

If you’d like to try writing some poetry, check out Two Spoiled Cats on Thursdays for the following week’s inspiration photo. And while you’re visiting, please read Angel Sammy’s poem. He transmits it to Teddy from the Bridge, and he is a masterful poet. You can click on the poetry badge to go there now.

Thankful Thursday

Besides writing and presenting a poem on Thursdays, Kitties Blue and I also share the things for which we are thankful. My thankful is for Astrid and Sawyer. They curled up for a nice snuggle with me yesterday when it was cold and rainy. What more could a cat mom ask for? Cooper Murphy decided he was happy to nap nearby.



Sawyer, Dad Tom and I are thankful Sawyer went 11 days between his last two seizures. That is the longest interim in many, many weeks.

As always, Kitties Blue and I are thankful for your support and friendship.

Thankful Thursday is hosted by Brain. If you’d like to take part in the blog hop, post on your blog for what you are thankful, then link up at the URL posted on the Thankful badge.

Thanks for joining us today.

I love seeing the photo of yoo snuggling with yoor furbabies. So happy Sawyer is on a good roll with his seizures. I get anal gland issues sometimes. I don’t want to talk about it because it’s not lady like. Love, Dori

We are loving the “additions” to the poetry photos. Cooper Murphy sure is having fun on that scooter with Nell!!

We also love the photo of all of you snuggling. Noelle wishes she was there too. She’s also happy Sawyer went 11 days without the seizure monster.

The Florida Furkids with love and whisker kisses to Sawyer from Noelle

When we read the title, we thought Cooper was scooting on his butt like we do to relieve our glands back there! BOL! Do cats even have those anal glands? We loved how it turned out, though, both the picture and the poem. What a happy picture of Sawyer, Astrid and Cooper on the bed with you! Happy Thankful Thursday!! XOX Xena, Lucy and Chia

First of all that is a TOTALLY fabulous poem…..Cooper on that scooter with “Nell” is a perfect accompaniment to a really fun poem. Love it. I am sure Teddy would enjoy scooting along outside – David teases that he’s going to buy Teddy one of those motorized jeep toys for kids. Oh sure….talk about an epic fail! Anyway, we are grateful little Sawyer went 11 days this time between seizures….we keep hoping for longer and longer intervals. Today is another “snuggle day” with rain. Stay cozy!

Hugs, Teddy and Pam

That wonderful all-of-us-in-bed photo is worth a million. As a good friend once told mama, “Sleeping with kitties is one of the world’s great experiences”…and boy was she right on! Wonderful photo. Wish we were all there, haha.
