Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Hey pals. Remember how I used to write those totally pawsome poems inspired by photos posted by my pals Teddy and Angel Sammy over at One Spoiled Cat??

Ok, well, I don't blame ya don't remember. It has been a while. After my BFF Crockett died, me and momma (ok, ALL da mommas and da grandpa too) got a case of da depresshuns and we just wuzn't in da mood for poetry. We still miss Crockett, everyday. But he wuz a happy kitty and he woulda wanted us to be happy. So in dat spirit, I are returning to my poetical writings.

Sit down Bowie, and listen to a master at work. Here's today's photo.

Now I gots me a mini me
I got to teach him how to be
Some say he is a copy cat
It's good dat I are chill wif dat
He's got a lot of stuff to learn
Respect and some street cred to earn
I'm not his dad or his mother
But I are his cool big brother!

Yeah, I can relate to da poem, I has my own mini me to teach!

He's a quick learner when it comes to toys!


  1. A wonderful poem! And Bowie sure looks attentive.

  2. That is a perfect poem. And you do indeed have your own mini me.

  3. That image sure got you inspired to write well, and imagine you even turned it into a poem about you and Bowie! Coolio!

  4. @The Florida Furkids - Fanks!
    @The Whiskeratti - Yeah, I made him listen.
    @pilch92 - Yup, MOL.
    @Meezer's Mews & Terrieristical Woofs - Yeah, well, momma has been saying he are a mini-Travis/Crockett hybrid. My coloring with Crockett's rounder face.

  9. I'm sure Bowie is an awesome student!

  10. YAY TRAVIS! Great happy you're writing again but I know you didn't feel much like it after Crockett left for the Bridge. You are quite the writer and know what? I'm SO HAPPY you have a mini-me to teach...he's already fast becoming the TEETH SELFIE guy but I think that tummy shot is pretty darn good too! You're a good teacher for sure.

    Hugs, Teddy
