Thoroughly Poetic Thursday
Kitties Blue and I enjoy Thursdays, as we get to participate in Teddy and Angel Sammy’s weekly poetry challenge. As I did last week, I took a tiny bit of poetic license with the inspiration photo they provided. Today, Misty May has joined the photo and is the complaining cat of my poem.
The Complaining Cat
Where or where can my human be?
Has she forgotten it’s time for my tea—
A saucer of milk and a warm tuna scone?
I fear she has left me here all alone
To roam the halls of this scary estate
While my tummy growls and I begin to lose weight.
I suppose I could search for a chubby mouse
Among the dark corners of this dreary house,
But I am accustomed to being waited upon
And served tasty morsels of salmon and capon.
Should I now be forced to live all alone
And turn into nothing but skin and bone?
But wait, are those footstep I now hear?
Why yes, it is my human and she’s drawing near.
I must remain aloof and walk away,
So she won’t suspect I missed her today.
I will make her come to me and apologize.
Then I’ll request a juicy burger from Five Guys!

If you’d like to try writing some poetry, check out Two Spoiled Cats on Thursdays for the following week’s inspiration photo. And while you’re visiting, please read Angel Sammy’s poem. He transmits it to Teddy from the Bridge, and he is a masterful poet. You can click on the poetry badge to go there now.
On Thursdays we also like to share the things for which we are thankful. Here’s what we’ve got for this week.
Dad Tom and I both completed 1,900 Peloton rides on Tuesday.
Cooper Murphy and I finally completed his Cat Scouts Valentine craft project. It is a wreath made from puzzle pieces. Scout Sammy Pilch from 15 And Meowing and his mom, Ellen, have been instructing Scouts in craft projects for the past few months.
Cooper Murphy is thankful for earning two additional merit badges at Cat Scouts.
Dad Tom and I are super thankful we have had no COVID exposures this week. Though mask mandates are being lifted everywhere, we will continue to wear our masks when in public places.
As we are each week, Kitties Blue and I are thankful for your friendship and support. Without each of you, we would not be here trying to entertain you!
Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by everybody’s friend, Brian. If you’d like to participate in the hop, post on your blog for what you are thankful, then click on Brian’s badge to go to his blog and enter your link.
That poem sure was a fun…(or serious, if you think about the hunger pangs…) take on the picture prompt.
Glad you are remaining well, and we are thankful here, that we, too are fine. We also wear masks when we are out and about. I still have to wear one and a face shield at my work, even though we do not have any cases there at this time.
Great poem. I love the kitty addition to it. 🙂 Congrats on 1900 rides- that is amazing! Your wreath is beautiful. XO
You kitties sure are talented in poetry and wreath making! Lots of great thankfuls, too. XOX Xena, Lucy and Chia
That was a really good poem and most wonderful thankfuls too. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
We love what you did with the photo and the poem!!!
Your wreath came out great. Thanks for the reminder for Raz to get his Merit Badges! ConCats on 1.900 Peloton rides!
The Florida Furkids with love and whisker kisses to Sawyer from Noelle
Great poem – and we love those puzzle piece wreaths !
I continue to wear a mask when out and about (except when I met a friend for coffee a week ago.) If we want to be careful, that is certainly our own business !
Love your poem. Always do.
I’m thankful that you’re still well. We are too.
Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Scritches all around, a smooch to Cooper Murphy and Sawyer and a big virtual hug to mom. ♥
misty may yur poem iz epic lee awesum lee soooper grate thiz week !!! 984 pawz UP 🙂 cooper…conga ratz two ewe dood !!
Terrific poem, Misty May!
No matter how hungry you are, you must ignore the food!
Love your poetry, Misty May! I completely agree with continued wearing of masks in public.
What a cute poem! And I hope Misty May didn’t have to wait much longer for her human. Though a Five Guy burger sounds delicious! ~Ernie
I love your poem, very creative!
We continue to wear our masks in public. I had a text last week saying I had been in close contact with someone with Covid and to click the link to order a test. I knew I hadn’t been and had taken a test at home the day before because I had a hospital appointment, so I ignored it.
Yesterday I saw that scam texts are being sent out and if you click the link they ask for credit card details to supposedly cover the postage. I am glad I ignored it! Why do people have to do that. There is enough trouble in the world without them adding to it.
Oh my goodness! You certainly knocked it out of the park with your poem this week……Misty May on the hunt for food in the corridors of a spooky place – perfect poetry. Thanks so much for being part of our fun every week – next week will be fun too we think……I wanna move to the little cottage in the photo.
We had to look up peloton as we thought it was the group of bikes in a race, so were you in a race? Did you wear a yellow jersey? Nice poem.
