Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday!

Standard

Double Blog Post Day!

Thursday is the day we are THANKFUL and the day we are POETIC so let’s get the show on the road………

First of all we can say that we are VERY thankful today – we’re thankful Spring is finally beginning to REALLY Spring after we had snow last week………we’re thankful that Teddy continues to keep all of us laughing our socks off every single day………we’re thankful that we got our brand new double wall ovens yesterday – that means Mom can make TWICE as much biscotti…….and we’re thankful that so many of YOU follow our blog and pawticipate in the fun like Saturday’s BACON HARVEST!    If you click on the badge below, it will take you to our host for Thankful Thursday – that’s Brian!!  You can go there and using the linky tool enter your OWN blog post to share why you are thankful.

Now for Part Two – our Thoroughly Poetic Thursday poem….

Today we are writing a poem about something starting with the letter “O” !

We are slowly but surely getting close to the end of the alphabet………..we might do something DIFFERENT after we make it to “Z” since we’ve done the alphabet twice now.    We can talk about that later though – right now let’s see what we can come up with for “O”!

“O”

“Orange”

By Angel Sammy Kimmell 3/23/17

Orange is a “lively” color, full of sunshine fun

Perfect for a kitten who lives his life on a full-out run!

The energy he has is amazing and so fun to see

Reminds me for sure of a very young ME.

He flies around the house, up and down all three floors of stairs

He has no regard for SAFETY so I keep him in my prayers!

For Teddy there are only two speeds – “rocket launch” and “sleep” –

His kitten brain is always working but his thoughts aren’t really deep!

He plays and eats and plays some more until he’s had his fill.

Mom has said she wishes the energy he has was available in a PILL !!

One thing’s for sure, our orange boy has brightened up the gloom

His “orange glow” lights up the night in every single room.

Adopting Teddy was OH SO RIGHT, my Mom and Dad did well…..

I set the stage for another orange boy…….now I can rest a spell…………

YAY – we squeezed out an “O” poem and I must say that I know someone ELSE who used “ORANGE” for their “O” today and it’s my new pal Cooper Murphy Blue at The Cat On My Head!   Cooper is a ginger boy like Teddy and the new boy in the household at Kitties Blue.    He also knows all about orange so we thought we’d both do ORANGE today.    If YOU want to pawticipate in Poetry Day, you can write your poem right here in my comments to share with everyone OR, leave us your blog link in my comments so we can come visit you and read your ODE TO O !!!

A reminder that my BACON BASH is Saturday………………..TODAY is the deadline to send in a photo of yourself in harvest gear if you want to but again – it’s not a requirement – just come to the party on Saturday and enjoy yourself and the “bounty” of the bacon greenhouse.    Those who want to send me a photo of yourselves in harvest clothes will be in the “HARVESTERS LINEUP” Mom and I will do so everyone can see you in your harvesting GARB!    We will be having a ton of fun and the party is ALL DAY so no matter when you stop by, you’ll be able to enjoy yourselves!

Questions about the Harvest Party?   Just ask……………we’ll get back to you!!    Meanwhile, HAPPY THURSDAY EVERYBODY!

Happy Thursday !!

  2. Love that poem, Angel S. Mom says the same about my “thoughts” as you said about Teddy’s. But she says IF I have any thoughts, they’re not very deep. I think deep thinking is overrated. I keep it real – Let’s play. Let’s nap. Let’s go outside. Let’s eat. Everything else is just gravy! Gravy! Yum!

    Love and licks,

    • Cupcake you’re right…..deep thinking takes too much time – we are too busy with other stuff for that right? Right! The only thing I’m thinking about right now is BACON. Tee Hee…..gravy? I’ll have some please!

    • YAY Miss Pix!!!! Glad you’ll be stopping by, and if you wanna be a harvester just put on your overalls and cowboy boots and head on over to the greenhouse (or send Mom your photo and we’ll post it!)……..we’re going to have some fun for sure. I’ll have to make sure Teddy doesn’t tear up the greenhouse with his running like a crazed tiger everywhere. Mom says she’d like to have ONE-TENTH of his energy!

      Love and Hugs, Angel Sam

      • If I still had my overalls I swear I would have CH take a picture and send it to you but I gave both of my overalls to a friend because I gained a little too much weight this winter and I thought I was over my overall obsession! Now I miss them! I could use some of Teddy’s energy, too!

  5. Sammy, you are beyond cute on your tractor. Mom has done one photo with Cooper, Mau and Allie, and will send it later. Can she send two? The orange Teddy poem is truly purrfection. It’s obvious from both poems that these two boys are full of kitten energy. Here’s the link to our post and poem: http://www.thecatonmyhead.com/poem-orange-cat/
    Sending lots of love to all. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

    • WOW! Was he on his own or with a human companion? Did you get to give him some pets? I bet he loved meeting you! No tail – wonder if something happened to it or if he was born tailless?!?!?!

      • He (or she?) belongs to the colony of kitties living in our small street. Most of them have no human but live in the gardens and get food from the peeps in the neighbourhood. I’ve met this ginger beauty when he was only a very young kitty. He is very friendly, comes when I call him and enjoys being petted very much! I have no information about his tail – is it possible that a cat is born without a tail???

        Like

        • Yes I think the “Manx” breed cats are mostly born with no tails….so your little ginger buddy may have some Manx in him, OR something happened to his poor little tail along the way. Sounds like he’s FLIRTING with you though – I’m glad that the peeps in the neighborhood help out the little feral colony that’s there. That makes my heart HAPPY!!!!!

  6. Hi Angel Sam and Teddy and Miss Pam. Its me, Calvin. I wrote a little poem for my brother, Oliver. Since we don’t have a blog, I hope its okay to post it here. Its not very rhyme-y but I think that’s okay 🙂

    OLIVER

    I have a big brother, his name is Oliver.
    He’s big and he’s fluffy and he has ginger fur.
    He was mom’s first cat, 13 years ago.
    She brought him home and he put on a show.
    Running around and climbing on things, he was in charge.
    He’s a very good big brother, a bit bossy sometimes.
    I adore my big brother, so fluffy and soft, he’s my best friend
    And I love him a lot.

    • Oh Calvin I think it’s wonderful you wrote a poem about your brother Oliver! We love it! Poems don’t always have to rhyme……we think it says just exactly how you feel about your brother and I’m SURE if he wrote a “Calvin” poem, it would be just as sweet as yours is for him!!!!

      Happy Poetry Day!

    • Mom says sometimes she wonders how I would have reacted if Teddy had been here with me before I went to the Bridge……….Maybe FIVE years ago I would have been happy to have him around (maybe) but the last year or so – I was so “not right” that I think a Wildman like Teddy would have been too much to handle. LOL

    • I hope you’re alright Siddhartha….I know that we kitties “pick up” on our humans’ moods so maybe your Ladymum being extra sad made you a “bit weerd”?? My Mom says she totally understands about missing “those before” – that’s something that will ALWAYS be no matter how much they love us “here”.

    We remember those zoomie days too…but at 12, Pipo can zoom with the best of them if he gets a mind to. Minko doesn’t seem to have the desire…but ah well, he *is* a chronically sick kitty so any mischief is low key…but he does have his moments. He used to be the zoomiest kitty evfur! He was crazy…

    • I was a zoomer in my kittenhood but soon settled down into my happy life with Mom and Dad…….walks outside on my harness with my Mom every single morning before the sun came up……….comfy naps on the couch and really was very healthy my entire long life until about the last year or two…….I wouldn’t change a thing about my wonderful life and Teddy has found out just what I always knew – Mom and Dad know how to treat a kitty!!! Teddy is having so much fun……and I will forever be his guardian angel………
