Thoroughly Poetical Thursday


Well, I got back at my momma last nite for da complete lack of bacon and da indignitees of spraying me wif flea spray. I hid. And I hid GOOD. She looked for two hours and at four in da morning she just gave up. Haha, VICTORY is MINE! Eggsept, wait, dat meant no late-nite dinner last nite for me. And when she saw me this morning, she TRIMMED MY NAILS. I think by winning, I may have lost . . . 


Anyways, while Crockett wuz eatin my late nite dinner as well as his (more proof I didn't really win, damn), I wrote this week's poem.

Zzzzz by Travis Ford

I'm a cat and I love to catch some z's
I like to sleep anywhere that I please
I like napping after I have been fed 
Sometimes I prefer to nap in the bed 
Or on top of the fridge, yeah, way up high
As close as I can to touching the sky
Another favorite spot, you wanna know where?
I love snoozing in my most favorite chair
Or when I wanna mess wif my mom's mind
I have got hidey holes she'll never find
The one place that I never ever nap
Is in the middle of my momma's lap!


Crockett and Angelique can be lap kittehs sometimes, but not me. And after flea spraying, nail trimming, and be STARVED overnite, I think ya can see why.

  9. Nail trimming? Mutilation? My nails were trimmed by The Vet. What an indignity.

  12. Travis, it sounds like you sort of tripped yourself up there!

    Funny thing about me... I'm not a lap kitty either! Although sometimes I will sleep behind my human in her office chair. But when I'm doing therapy cat visits, I can't get enough of snuggling with the patients!

    1. I like to sit next to my momma sometimes - but never on her.

  13. another fun poem, Travis! we're surprised you aren't a lap kitty. maybe it is because we are. on our own terms at least. so maybe you'll get some bacon to make up for the indignities you had to suffer?

  14. Poor Travis! You sure were PICKED ON! Flea spray, nail trims, NO BACON....you might consider leaving a little "gift" for your Mom in her slipper...tee hee. Love your Z poem my friend and I hope you continue with a "re-do" of the alphabet starting next week too...!

    Hugs, Teddy

  16. I'm becoming very concerned. Every time I've stopped by lately, there's been a bacon shortage. Sounds like your hiding was a bit too successful!

  17. Oops...you snoozed and you 'loozed'. Sorry dude.

    So much torture and no reward in sight...no Travis in sight either...oops is right.

    Hope things go better this week.

    Did Angie and Travis not need a tortuous workup like that??
