Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Today is my first attempt at a poem. I was the only one of the Kitties Blue who could write it as the poem is about something at which I excel: zoomies. Luckily, this week’s prompt letter just happens to be “Z.” So without any additional meowing, here it is.



Zoomies are a thing I like to do,
Sometimes just because or after a poo!
If you get in my way, you best watch out,
I’ll hurdle you in a minute without even a shout.
I love to zoom from room to room.
If you hear my purr, I’m going vroom,vroom,vroom.
Those two boys may have that hooligan wagon,
But I’m the one doing all the braggin’.
I zoom right by them in a great big rush,
Leaving their sorry butts draggin’ in my dust.
If you’re a zoomer or just a wannabe,
Let me know ‘cause there is a key.
It’s definitely something you’ll want to know
About building up speed while on the go.
If you think to be a good zoomer, you’ll require some nip,
I promise you can zoom without taking a trip.
I cannot let the cat out of the bag here.
It’s a secret from my fursibs I hold dear.
Calista and Cooper have each tried to zoom;
Without my knowledge they won’t beat me anytime soon.
But I’ll give it to you in a super secret note,
So you too can earn the privilege to gloat.
When you fly by your fursibs with a flick of your tail,
They’ll be calling an Uber or raising a sail.
Now if you’ll please excuse me, I’ve got to zoom.
As you can see, I’m already dressed in my zooming costume.

Thankful Thursday

I am also joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday blog hop. I am thankful to be the fastest cat in the house. If I wasn’t, I’d never be able to get away from Misty May when she chases me. I may squeal when she does it, but I don’t get beat up.

Thanks for stopping in and reading my poem. I must say that I think I did a pretty good job for my first attempt. What do you think?

Purrs and paw-pats, Astrid

I love your poem, Astrid! And you look great in your zoomie outfit!!

Don’t you just LOVE the Zoomies? I get them every now and then – for no reason at all. I just take off running as fast as my paws will carry me. That’s interesting htat you like to do it after a poo. I’ve heard of one other kitty that does it after a poo too! Do you say to yourself “Oooo, that felt sooooo good!” ?

Those zoomies sure are fun. We like to do that too.
We just wanted to let you know that Gertrude is on antibiotics and has to go back in about ten days to have the tooth removed. She is eating much better but can still only eat the juice from soft food. Thanks for asking and you all have a great day.

What a great poem Calista-Jo. You look ready to Zoom.
I will let you in on a little secret.
I am a kitty who zooms rather than sit.
I go go go till my feet are a blur.
Which is when I really start to purr

Pipo gets into zoomie mode sometimes, but you sure have him beat…and what a furbulous poem! It makes us want to join in some zoomies here, too!

Love your pink skates…with your tail all akimbo like that we think you are about to go an another ZOOMIE!

Yael June 8, 2017 at 12:18 pm

Your costume is just purrfect for zooming. We like to zoom too, but it’s usually between 11:00pm and 3:00am. It drives mommy crazy. I don’t know why.

The Menagerie Mom June 8, 2017 at 7:36 am

Oh, Astrid, you have the best zoomie costume ever! I like to zoom, too, and no one else in our house can beat me at it. I like to scale walls during my zooms, too. That’s the funnest. My mom tries to tell me to stop climbing the walls, but it’s not like I’m going to listen. -Eddy

Teddy and Mom June 8, 2017 at 6:02 am

Oh Astrid look at you – the Zoomie Queen! Love your outfit and skates – I think you could beat anyone in that gear. I love zooming up and down the stairs myself! I think your poem is fabulous too – you have a talent for poems AND zooming! Thanks for playing along – we hope you all will continue when we start with A again next week!

Love, Teddy

I’m not surprised you did the Zoomies poem, Astrid! Before she got too old, Binga was the queen of Zoomies. Now she only does them occasionally.

Good poem. George gets the Zoomies every day, in the morning, and late afternoon. He is fast and high energy! No special outfit required. ❤
