Thoroughly Poetic Thursday


Z is for Zooming

Z is for zooming all around the house,
Chasing dust bunnies or maybe a mouse.
I’m the premier zoomer and also the hunter.
If you get in my way, you’ll find I’m a jumper.
I’ll run up on you and leap over your back,
And you best not try to give me a smack.
I’m not a zebra, and I don’t know Zydeco,
But when it is time to zoom, I go, go, go…
I zigzag about as if I’m psychotic.
Zooming is only fun when it’s chaotic.
My name is Astrid. I am the zoomer.
I’m the Kitty Blue who supplies the humor.

To accompany my poem, I am sharing an old photo and a video. Mom has posted both here before, but you may not have seen them. If you are anything like our mom, however, you may have seen these but forgotten.




Lisbeth and I may no longer be pals, but it never hurts to have reinforcements when pursuing mousies.

To see an example of my excellent zooming skills, you’ll need to wait until the end of this little video. Trust, me it’s worth it! Check out that tongue action before you begin the video.



We are participating in Angel Sammy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday. If you couldn’t guess, this week’s prompt letter is “Z.” That means, next week we’ll be starting over again with “A.” To see Sammy’s poem and some of the others, click on his badge.




This is our entry in Brian’s Home Thankful Thursday blog hop as well. We are thankful for the outpouring of love and support for all of us after Fiona’s passing one week ago tonight. Click on Brian’s badge to join this hop.




See you tomorrow for Friendly Fill-Ins.

Purrs and paw-pats, Astrid
