Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Today, we have a special poet joining Teddy and Angel Sammy’s (Two Spoiled Cats) poetry challenge. He has taken a bit of liberty with the inspiration photo and is hoping his two ginger pals won’t mind.

Here’s that photo and his poem.



Stinky’s Solo Adventure

This man is obviously not acrophobic,
Or he’d have his feet planted firmly on the ground.
He has a unique vantage point to see the city
But does he look, or is he too busy?
Mom said this would make her dizzy.
She’d probably hold her breath,
Fearing she’d fall to her death.
But this looks to me like great fun…
Sitting on the tippy top, gazing all around,
making Mom’s heart skip a beat,
But she shouldn’t worry.
She knows I’ll land on my feet.

Thankful Thursday

Another thing we do on Thursday is join the Thankful Thursday blog hop hosted by Brian. This week we have several things for which we are thankful. First is the great vet visit Sawyer had on Tuesday. As Dr. Neel said on Facebook, he was a “perfect gentleman.”

Sawyer is always quiet in the car coming and going. Unlike several of his fursibs, he never makes a peep. Normally, however, he is a PTU pooper. But not yesterday! While at the office, he received his rabies shot, had blood drawn and his claws trimmed. He didn’t growl or try to scratch or bite anyone. Way to go, Sawyer!



But best of all, Sawyer’s blood work is all normal, and his phenobarbital level is in the therapeutic range. So, we will continue with his current dosage of that and the Keppra. His last seizure was a week ago Monday. They have been happening about a week apart, so his dad and I are thankful for these few extra days.

Cooper Murphy is thankful for all those who came to his party on Tuesday to celebrate his third Gotcha Day. He’s especially grateful to Stinky and Periwinkle for planning such an exceptional celebration.

He’s thankful for the cards he received and asked to share those he wasn’t able to post on Tuesday.


Thank you, Teddy!


Thank you, Timmy & Einstein!
