Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

So, it’s Thursday again and time to join Angel Sammy and Teddy from Two Spoiled Cats and write a poem based on the inspiration photo they provided.

I have been altering the photos for the past several weeks by adding a cat or two, and this week is no different. I also veered drastically from the subject of the photo as well. But then it is only meant to stimulate our imaginations.

Cooper Murphy and his beautiful girlfriend Tyebe (Canadian Cats) can be found in the lower right corner of the photo. Cooper Murphy (also known as Snap to Tyebe) wrote the poem.

Up in the Air with Tyebe

Oh, what a spectacular view!
I’m delighted to be here with you.
We’ve been apart for such a long time,
I think I’d rather look at you as we climb.
To see the rising sun light up your fur
And listen to your melodic purr
Warms my heart with love and delight,
Whether on the ground or at this height.
I’m happy you could come out today,
I sincerely wish we could just fly away
And be together for all our lives.

Thankful Thursday

Thursday also is our day to give thanks and join the blog hop hosted by Brian.

Stinky is up first. He is thankful to Periwinkle for the spectacular dinosaur-themed birthday party she threw him for this week’s adventure. If you missed it, check the post out at Friends Furever. And if you missed Periwinkle & Stinky’s T-Rex Trail dinosaur adventure, you can find it here: “The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky: Part CXL.”

Sawyer, Dad Tom and I are thankful that Sawyer hasn’t had a seizure in three weeks.

Kizmet is happy and thankful for her birthday gift. It is a KiTiFISH Smart Interactive Cat Toy. Her fursibs are also enjoying it. When a kitty lives in a multi-cat household, sharing is not a choice.

Finally, Astrid is grateful for the nip-filled, handmade cats toys and some squeezy treats from Sampy as her anniversary gifts. She hasn’t tried the treats yet, but the nippy goodness of the toys is attracting a lot of attention from her fursibs.

Both Kizmet and Astrid have agreed to share photos sometime in the future.
