Thoroughly Poetic Thursday AND Whoops!


First Things First…….!!

Can you believe that yesterday was our blogaversary and MOM FORGOT?   Well she did………….now I have an excuse as I wasn’t around when the blog was started – I’m the new kid on the block and I’m PAWSITIVE if Angel Sammy was still living with us he would have known and told Mom.    But we did NOT get the “wake up” call until today with our friends at Friends Furever wished us a Happy Blogaversary!    GOOD GRIEF MOM!     I’m so THANKFUL that we have friends who pay attention to these things since Mom wasn’t!    That’s what I’m thankful for as we join up with Brian’s THANKFUL THURSDAY.    Want to share your “thankfuls” ??   Click the badge and do that right now before you read more!

Mom and Angel Sam started the blog on May 10, 2011.    To me that sounds like EONS ago but then I’m just a kid.    Mom posted a link to our first post here on our blog yesterday, which was rather pitiful, rather short, and had very little interesting information in it – which is reflected in the FEW comments we got back then!    We’ve come a long way baby – we have tons of followers, tons of fun, and have celebrated the blogaversary ON TIME every year until now.    Here’s the link in case you want a good YAWN.    CLICK HERE

Since we’re a day late, we won’t get too carried away celebrating – let’s just say the chances are SLIM we will forget again!    Tee Hee    Maybe just a WEE celebration?


Yummy choc/strawberry cake!

Now shall we move on?    Today is my brother Angel Sammy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday post day – and he never lets me down – he always visits me the night before and brings me a poem he’s written for the occasion.    We are nearing the end of the alphabet again – this is our second time through…………but we will continue with a Poetry Day – we just might add a little TWIST to it which we’ll talk about after we get to “Z”!

Take it away Angel Sammy!

Greetings Poetry Fans!   Today we are celebrating the letter “V” !    If you have written a poem that you’d like to share with everyone, just put your blog link in my comments and let us know you want us to visit and see your glorious work – OR – you can post your poem right here in my comments if you like!   Put a little poetry in your life – you’ll be glad you did!

With Love from the Rainbow Bridge…………..Angel Sammy



By Angel Sammy Kimmell, 5-11-2017

One thing that I totally do not miss

Is the vacuum cleaner’s whine and hiss!

At the Bridge we don’t need to daily clean

This place is the most orderly spot you’ve ever seen!

Monster machines in closets there are NOT

Wall to wall beauty is what we’ve got.

Back home on Fridays I knew the sound

When Mr. Monster would come around.

Our house was clean as clean can be

But Mom did “monsterizing” regularly!

When I got old and my hearing was failing

I got more brave and less scared of “de-TAIL-ing” !

That machine was a monster and I kept my tail under

If it had sucked up my tail it would hurt like thunder!

Nowadays from my cloud I can see little Teddy

Preparing to vacate when the vacuum is ready……

He hides in the basement until cleaning’s done

For sure that old monster is way far from FUN!

My Angel brother sure can write a poem can’t he?    Actually I have become a little more brave with the monster – when Mom opens the closet where it lives I watch until she plugs it in – THEN I run and hide.    I used to run the minute she opened the closet – I’m making progress!

Happy Thursday! 

Love, Teddy

Now that you finished reading my blog – why not stop by my friend Raz’s blog HERE and wish him a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!  

Tell him Teddy sent ya!

  1. Oh happy blogoversary!!!!!! what a day full of fabulous events… Raz’s meowday, madis &precious have their gotcha day and you can celebrate 6 years of blogging!!!
    Just between us; I hate that Count Vaccula… butt I fought it and now it can no longer retract it’s tail when I chase it… that makes it easier to get that bugger ;o)


    • You are so brave Phenny! The monster in your house knows you are BOSS now! I’m just a little hesitant to exert myself around that thing – maybe I’ll get BRAVE as I get older!!!!!

      Love, Teddy


  2. We hate that noisy fur stealer too…but two of petcretary’s kitties from days gone before, would sit and wait fur their turn to get a vacuuming! Can you believe it? They loved it so much they purred and if she had to stop the machine to talk on the phone or whatevfur, they would give her a stink eye MOL!
    Dog-guy likes a vacuuming too…what weird furs we have here…except not us, MOL, MOL!

    Happy Blogoversary!!

    We think a mewmosa would be nice…and cake?? You betcha!

    When we have had our refreshemnts we will go and visit Raz…

  3. Happy blogoversary and a huge milestone! You beat us by days. We launched in May but not officially until Odin’s birthday June 1. Can you believe it’s been six years? And Teddy, you’re growing up so fast and too handsome for words xoxox


    • Thank you Miss Layla……I’m sure one happy kitty. I wish I could have grown up WITH Angel Sammy instead of just hearing about him though. No worries about FUTURE blogaversaries – I’m on top of this now!!!!!!

      Love, Teddy


  4. Happy blogoversary Teddy and Angel Sammy. Your brother does write great poems. Eric would ignore the vacuum, but Flynn would get on the bed and watch with one suspicious eye.


    • It’s funny that some kitties actually LIKE the vacuum….or at least tolerate it….I’m kind of lucky in that my Mom usually waits until I’m already down in the basement napping when she begins the monster machine stuff! Eric was brave to ignore the monster and it sounds like Flynn was alright with it as long as it didn’t come up on the bed!!!!

      Love and Hugs, Teddy


  5. Happy Blogaverary, kids! You’re smart to be brave about the vacuum monster, Little T. And also be grateful you don’t live here. Mom vacuums EVERY SINGLE DAY. She blames it on my furs, but still….Sheesh. OCD much???

    Love and licks,


    • Cupcake I think I’d go bonkers with the vacuum every day but then again, maybe it’s just background noise at this point since she’s been doing it so long? Still, you can’t trust those things – they suck up everything – toys, treats we’ve hidden for later……it’s scary isn’t it?!

      Love and Hugs, Teddy


  6. Congratulations on your blogaversary!

    Even I get up and go to a different room because I hate the noise of the vacuum cleaner. The cats run as soon as they see it!




    • HAPPY GOTCHA DAY TO YOU DEAR MADI! Go by Rumblers and have breakfast with us to celebrate OK? Also I’m glad you like my newest “spotted tummy” photo!!!!!!!

      Love and Hugs, Teddy


  8. Happy Belated Blogaversary to all of you! Your blog began shortly after Motor Mommy’s (hers was Sept, 2010), and she just cannot imagine NOT being friends with your mom. So, today, we are thankful for blogging, which caused us all to meet and become such good furriends!
    Love, Sundae
    PS Great poem, as always, Angel Sammy!


  9. Happy Belated Blogoversary!!! I saw it listed yesterday on the Blogosphere page, but thought it was a mistake because you didn’t write about it. Excellent poem, Angel Sammy is an amazing poet. Phoebe wrote hers about vampire vets today. XO


    • Phoebe did a great job with her poem today and I think we all know that vampires are definitely in vet offices! They get a lot to drink there too! HAHA Yes we forgot the blogaversary – Mom just is not quite in the groove since Sammy left but we’re getting better!

      Love, Teddy


  10. We went and read some of those first posts yesterday. You are way too critical of yourselves. But it’s nice to know that you have found your niche with so many peeps who love visiting your blog! Happy, happy blogoversary. We sure hope you keep going strong for years to come. Sammy’s poems alway get an A++++ from us! He’s a master. And that cake, YUMMY in the TUMMY. Congratulations again. Mau wrote poem for today.
    XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy


    • We loved your poem for today and Mau was the PERFECT guy to write it! After his experience he was totally able to write a “V” poem that fit!!!!! Thanks for the compliments on Mom’s blog – I’m sorry Angel Teddy and I can’t BOTH be here to play together and give her more fun material but she usually comes up with SOMETHING to write about anyway!

      Love, Teddy


  11. Happy Blogaversary! I heard from WordPress on 6 May and they gave me a shout out! 2011 too! Took me till June to get a post up!
    Angel Sammy I remember how you hated the super sucker!
    Teddy, you look handsome in all your gingerness!


  12. Aaaaaaaaaaw Teddy, RaenaBelle here, dat cawrpet monster ain’t nuffin’ to be ‘fraid of. As a matter of fact, it can kind’a fun. I’s like to jump at it and scare it. it backs up real fast when I’s get all puffy. Try it sometime, ya’ might like it. MOL Big huggies

    Luvs ya’

    Raena and Dezi


  13. Happy Blogaversary to you and your Mom and many more to come!!! We remember how much you disliked the vacuum, Angel Sammy, and how you dreaded cleaning day. Nice to know that there is no need for them in your happy place. Lightning is not bothered by it at all, but Misty likes to bark and bite at it.

    Woos – Lightning and Misty
