Thoroughly Poetic Thursday 

We have almost reached the end of the alphabet again with the prompts for our weekly poetry. This week’s letter is “W.” The prompt words for this week are: 1) Window, 2) Wink, 3) Worry and 4) Wiggle. We elected, however, to write about winter. Though it is not here yet, we have had more than our share of cold weather. We know some of you have already had snow, and we ask that you keep it right where it is.

Here’s our entry for this week.

Winter is Coming

Are you a fan of wintertime?
Kitties Blue definitely are not.
But we also don’t like when it’s hot!

It’s been dreary, grey and cloudy
For what seems like forever.
We do not like this crummy weather.

Though we’re not fond of these cool temps,
We’re grateful it isn’t winter yet,
When snow turns into a grimy mess.

We avoid walking in it if we can,
As it’s cold and wet on our paws.
And they feel as if they’ll never thaw.

Even the catio is chilly and no fun,
In spite of squirrels on the feeder.
We think Santa should bring a heater.

If you live where you already have snow,
Kitties Blue send you our condolences
And hope the snow hasn’t come in bunches.

We are going to pray for a mild winter
With temperatures warmer than usual,
But we suspect we’re being delusional!

This yucky white stuff is not what we want to see this winter. Squirrels and birds, however, are welcome for our viewing pleasure.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday is hosted by our special friends, Teddy and angel Sammy. Master poet, Sammy, transmits a poem from the Rainbow Bridge each week for our enjoyment. And every poem is a gem. Even if you do not want to participate with a poem of your own, Sammy’s poem always is a must read. To fly on over to his and Teddy’s blog, click on the badge below. While there, check out the comments for links to other poems.

Thankful Thursday

We all, and especially Cooper Murphy, are thankful for a nice cozy home. Last January Cooper found himself homeless and wandering in the snow looking for shelter and food. He fortunately made his way to a friend’s front porch, and then our house by way of Dad and a SleepyPod. So no matter what type of winter we get, Cooper and all of the other Kitties Blue will be thankful to  be safe and warm.

Wonky WordPress

If you were here yesterday, you may have noticed that our blog looked a bit strange. Some “ghost in the machine,” stole our entire sidebar, including our logo. Mom is busily rebuilding everything, but we expect it will be a couple of more days before she is finished. Sorry for any confusion this may have caused.

We’ll see y’all tomorrow with Friendly Fill-Ins.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy
