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!

Thankful Thursday

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.
