Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Time For Double-Header Thursday!

Thankful Thursday with Brian and Poetic Thursday with ME!

First off – I will be THANKFUL and join up with Brian’s Blog Hop where we celebrate all the things we are thankful for!  You can click the badge above and join in if you like!

I am thankful for several things this week – well really I’m thankful for WAY more than “several” but I’ll just mention a few.   One is that we have a ROCK visiting us – Bashful from my pig friend Bacon’s “Hotel Thompson” and I must say, Bashful is being a VERY good rock.    I don’t have any new photos to show you of his escapades while he’s here – he has, in fact, been a very GOOD rock so far although other blog buddies he’s visited have reported that he can be a “handful” !    New photos coming soon I promise.  I’m also thankful that my Mom let me join Cat Scouts because I’m having a TON OF FUN.    My big brother Angel Sam is still a Cat Scout and still a Troop Leader there even though he’s at the Bridge now.   He’s super busy these days but joins me there when he can.    I’m also very thankful that we finally got a day of SUNSHINE after so many days of rain.   I am doing my best to get used to the harness Mom is forcing me to wear (Sammy’s old one) – I’ve never been “restrained” before so it takes some getting used to.    I walk three steps then lie down (Mom says I look like I’m hoping the harness isn’t following me).   HAHAHAHA

So there are many more “thankfuls” but that’s a start…………NEXT UP we have my brother Angel Sammy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday where he challenges everyone to play along by writing a poem with the NEXT letter of the alphabet as the title – last week we did “S” and he wrote about SNOW.    This week is “T” and what did he write about??    Well you’ll see below the badge!

“T” is for….

“Tiny Tigers”

By Angel Sammy Kimmell, 4/27/17

Mom has always had a thought

When she adopted me (and Teddy) what she REALLY got

Were tiny tigers – not cats at all

But mighty tigers standing tall!

Moving quietly on padded feet

Hunting for something good to eat!

Wild game is around everywhere we look…..

YOU see a chair, a rug, a book

But WE see buffalo, gazelles, and hyenas galore!

We hear them running across the floor!

We pounce and leap and attack with joy

Even though the reality is, we’ve caught a TOY!

We love to pretend we’re big tigers you see……

But we’re just ginger kitties who PRETEND to be free……..

That was a good one Angel Sammy!   You’re a poet – and we ALL know it!

Monsieur Angel Sammy – my special brother AND poet!

Did you write a poem today?  If you did you can post it in our comments section if you like so you can SHARE it OR you can put your own blog link in my comments and we’ll go visit you and read your MASTERPIECE!!!

Go ahead! You can write a poem I just KNOW you can!

Oh go on! Just TRY!

So Angel Sammy and I will see you next Thursday for another Thoroughly Poetic Thursday?    We will be doing a poem starting with the letter “U”………….no I’m confident Angel Sammy will not be writing about UNDERWEAR…………honest!

OK – enough talking – let’s play!  I wanna be a TINY TIGER!

Love, Teddy

    • Oh thanks Phenny – what a kind thing to say……I pretend like I’m a tiger all the time and Mom thinks it’s hilarious…..I pounce out of nowhere and wait for her to walk by and grab her ankle trying to take down my prey. When she giggles it ruins the mood though!

      Hugs, Teddy

  4. That was an excellent poem Angel Sammy, your Mom should publish a book of these. And I LOVE that photo of you in the beret I made for you. And Teddy, you are an adorable tiny tiger. XO

    • My Mom has the beret on one of her tiger stuffies here in her office – she hasn’t let me try it on though – she says it was Angel Sammy’s – but I think one of these days she’ll at least let me see how cool I’d look in it! Angel Sammy said to thank you for your compliment on his poem.

      Love and Hugs, Teddy

  5. You are always so very good at writing poems. he he – we’re about as unimaginitive as anyone can be so no poetry is written in this house. I used to belong to Cat Scouts, and you are right – it was a ton of fun. M told me Ihad to quit tho cuz I was in too much stuff and she just didn’th ave time for all the stuff I was in.

    • Oh you can get incredibly INVOLVED at Scouts that’s true……..but it’s a lot of fun and my big brother Angel Sammy is still a Troop Leader even though he’s an Angel! I’m just starting out and have a lot to learn but I wanna be just like him!

  7. PS
    Rumpy had a Kitty Holster that was the BEST! And you can get them in neat designs too,like Tiger! Even Rumpy could not wiggle or back out and that is meowing something!

    • Oh Timmy Mom has been thinking that’s the right design harness for me – the Velcro closures for one thing but also some nice designs. Mom will be happy to know that it’s one that I can’t wriggle out of – all she needs to do is get my chest measurement so we can get the right size! Thanks for telling me Rumpy had one!

  9. We love seeing your stalking like a tiger picture, Teddy!

    And the Tiger poem is ‘tigeriffic’!

    Years ago in Canada, we could get gasoline at Esso stations and they always said, put a tiger in your tank…they even would give out tiger tails…poor tigers without their tails though…petcretary has one in a box somewhere…oh-oh!

    Tiny tigers prowl –
    Hunting, stalking their prey –
    Pounce – got you mousie!
