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

Oh Lisbeth that is a GREAT poem – being a pod potato seems like a perfectly good way to enjoy a few hours during the day…..now that you have two pods you should be able to find a “vacancy” when you need one! Thanks for pawticipating in poetry day!

Love, Angel Sammy

We guessed it was you who penned this SleepyPod ode, Lisbeth. And we don’t blame you one bit, as they look so cozy! The kitties here have just about convinced their human that they need one (or two, or three). Happy SleepyPod snoozing, Lisbeth!

I would love one of those Sleepypods! I do have an Atom for my plane trips, but I’d really like the round Sleepypod for car travel.
