Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

It is Thursday, which means it is time to write a poem for the Two Spoiled Cats, Teddy And Angel Sammy’s, poetry challenge. They provide an inspiration photo, and participants use it as the subject or jumping off place for a poem.

Here is this week’s photo and my poem.



Lazy Summer Day

I love to float in my little swan boat
On a warm and sunny day,
Even with hat and sunglasses
To keep the burning sun away
From my fair and tender baby skin.
When I see my reflection in the bay,
It makes me grin, giggle and clap
Until it’s time to go home for a nap!

In addition to providing the inspiration photo, Angel Sammy writes a poem each week and transmits it to Teddy from the Rainbow Bridge. He is a masterful poet, so please drop my Two Spoiled Cats, by clicking on the badge above, to read his poem

Thankful Thursday

We are all thankful for our Angel Mauricio vSqullion, which we just adopted. He joins the rest of our vSquillion family. You can see them by clicking on “The Felines”  tab in the menu at the top of this page.



We are all thankful for a lovely fall with temperate temperatures. Usually we get a heat wave at some point, but so far we haven’t had one and none is in the current forecast. Though we have had lots of rainy days, Kitties and humans have been able to enjoy lots of catio time.

I am super thankful that I have surgery scheduled for next Wednesday to get the bent pin out of my left great toe and replaced with a new one. I have been in pain since February when I tripped, broke the toe and bent the pin. 

Of course, I am thankful that Dad Tom and I remain virus free. I will be even more thankful when we all no longer need to worry about contracting the nasty COVID-19.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by Brian. To participate, post on your blog for what you are thankful then click on his badge to go to Brian’s Home and link up.
