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!

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.
