Thoroughly Poetical Thursday


Hey y'all - I had to really put on my thinkin cap for dis week's letter.  G.  I mean, dere are hardly any foodz dat start wif G - I mean, I know dere are grouper, but I pretty much covered da fishafied foodz pretty well last week.  

But then I took a look in da mirror, and I gots it.

Ginger Cats

Ginger cats, we are the best
Head and tails above the rest
We has dat warm sunny hue
And we's sweet, we luv you
Others are glam and sleek
But we's bold, we's not meek
We come in orange to peach
Life wif gingers' - a beach!


Well, Crockett liked it.


I think Angelique is gettin dat smacky paw ready.  She's just lucky I didn't right my poem on GIRLCATS.  Speshully GRAY GIRLCATS.  Den her smacky paw woulda been workin overtime.

  17. Bravo, we love that poem. Cooper Murphy especially liked it. After being gingerless for the past five-plus years, our mom is especially happy to have another ginger boy in the house. Great expressions, Crockett. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy.

  19. EGGcellent "G" poem Travis...of course I thought it was PURRFECT since I am a ginger angel cat. I think maybe Angelique was just JEALOUS because your poem was about YOU and Crockett and not HER!!!!! See you next week for "H"!

    Hugs, Angel Sammy

  21. Angelique, I'm standing in solidarity with you girlfriend. Gray girlcats do NOT stand for any poetical nonsense, especially where serious topics like GIRLS are concerned! (they're very lucky they chose NOT to write about girlcats, I say! ~ Allie)

  22. Hey, we not be ginger...but since we are meezers and oriental and that kind of thing we like the ginger to eat...well petcretary does, MOL! So your poem is gingeriffic!


    The fave thing that she misses about ginger is the cake she used to bake with pieces of gingery goodness inside of it...sigh...maybe someday she will devise an acceptable substitute:)
    Meanwhile keep up the ginger talk,and do not be too gingerly about it. Angie is OK, she'll get over it...snicker...we can mew that, cause we too are boykitties, MOL!
