Thoroughly Poetic Thursday



The Tale of the Pod Potato

Do you have a special place you like to nap?
Is it on the floor or in a cozy lap?
What about a cat tree or a window ledge?
Is it upon your human’s pillow or bed?
For me, nothing but a Sleepypod will do.
That is why we now have two.
If I must wait around to get my turn
To curl in the warm place for which I yearn,
The Sleepypod interloper better watch out—
I’ll give them a whack. There isn’t any doubt!
Summer, winter, spring or fall,
I hear the pod’s silent, yet seductive call,
Asking me to step inside for a snooze.
If someone wants my spot, there will be dues.
Treats and catnip toys will be accepted,
But if they enter my pod, they’ll be rejected.
When I’m in my pod, only I will fit.
I’m a pod potato and darn proud of it.

So that’s my poem and photo for Two Spoiled Cats’ Thoroughly Poetic Thursday. Did you guess the prompt letter for this week? If you didn’t, it is “P.” Hop on over to Angel Sammy’s and Teddy’s blog to read their poem and find links to poems written by some of your favorite bloggers.

Thankful Thursday

It was easy to select for what I am thankful. It is that we now have two SleepyPods. I spend the day popping between the two following the sun. Mom keeps trying to convince me to spend some time on the catio, but I won’t budge. Today, Dad Tom put one of the pods on the catio thinking I might take the bait. I guess he didn’t get the memo stating that I am a cat, and I do what I want. At that is what I did. That pod remained empty on the catio all afternoon.

Anyhoo, I am joining the Thankful Thursday blog hop sponsored by Brian’s Home. To join, click on their badge.




Purrs and paw-pats, Lisbeth

Well…it’s supposed to be my Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed! However, as soon as Mom opened the box and put it together, this is what happened.


Fiona's Sleepypod


Do you see me in any of these photos? Nope! Lisbeth was the first to jump in and claim my Sleepypod. Before I could even get near it, Calista Jo and Astrid also had to check it out. In fact, Astrid immediately curled up and went to sleep. She’s so tiny, she disappeared into the plushy interior.


Fiona's Sleepypod


I finally got the opportunity to investigate my Sleepypod. Of course, I waited until some treats were placed inside. I never did get in. I picked out each individual treat with my paw. Dad thinks I should have some time to get accustomed to it before they start placing me inside to get my subQ fluids. I am scheduled for fluids today so I’ll have to wait and see if I get them there or not.

For that to happen, Astrid may have to be removed forcibly. Mol!

For those of you who asked what color Sleepypod I was getting, now you know. It is the Robin’s Egg Blue. It really isn’t blue…more aqua (one of Mom’s favorite colors). I think it goes nicely with my grey furs.
