Thoroughly Poetic Thursday


Today's poem is brought to you by the letter 
When I came to live here I learned all about ...
I am told I was a bit of a hand full.  I often heard Milky-Way (the first feline of the family) never did this or that.  I was adventurous from day one. I was my own girl still am and I marched to a different drummer. 

Love learns to be flexible
Love opens your humans eyes to new things
Love is victorious over of all things 
(even when caught red pawed in a big cold machine)
Love is for an eternity

Mom here:  As a kitten, Madi conquered every surface of the house in her first 6 months.  Everything conquered was here with our first cat but he never tried any.
The best of her conquests were:
1. jumped on the Grandfather clock.
Madi's route was to get on the 7th step from the bottom, calculate a perfect jump through the stair rails to the top of the clock.  We could not move the clock so we wrapped it in a quilt secured with duct tape.  It stayed that way for several month.
2. she walked across the mantle to get to the top of the 8' secretary where she sat until her Dad came home.  When he walked in the door she let out the most victorious MEOW.  And she had been chewing on the finial. Again we could not move the mantle but we set the white chair (shown in 8/28/16 post) in the middle of the family room.  
3. any chance she got she would hop up in the fridge too.  And had a hissing fit when the door was closed.  


  1. So sorry I haven't been around much! It's been hard to keep up with everyone. We *may* be moving again soon so it has been busy. BUT, we love you! Maddie, Mommy, and BabyBelle

  2. Wow, you were quite the wild one as a kitten, Madi!

  3. Hari OM
    Crikey Madi, you sure got those peeps dancing to your tune!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. hahaha you wanted to hop in the fridge? probably the opinions about a cat in the fridge were DIVAriCATed :o)

  5. Madi you have been a "live wire" since you came to live with your Mom and Dad....and I know they have loved every minute of your spirit of adventure (even the finial chewing!). You GO girl!!! I love your poem - and I wrote about LOVE today too for my poem............something we know all about right?

    Love, Sammy

  6. Oh Madi, bet you were fun to watch do all those tricks. Good for you to keep the Mom and Dad busy fixing everything. You all have a great day.

  7. yes to one spoiled cat and this is hilarious as long as I was not there. MOL friends cat Moses was like this, she could not have a plant or a tree or a Christmas tree. I said lets go buy a lighted wreathe and hang it over the desk. HA... she could not have that either. Moses liked to sleep on the back of the sofa. when unsuspecting visitors sat on the sofa, he would run across the back and leap on the shoulder. did not hurt just STARTLED the person. love the pic in the fridge

  8. You are a fine ladycat, and we luff your adventurous spirit.

  9. Madi was so cute!!!! Raz is proud of his gal's adventurous spirit!!!

  12. I think you and my kitty sister Pigeon would get along, Madi. She loves to climb and spends most of her time up on the TOPS of the kitchen cabinets!

  13. OH my gosh Madi, just the other day Henri got into the refrig on the bottom shelf and dad did not even KNOW he tried to find him and just happened to think about the refrig. and opened the door and there he must have a talk with him. stella rose
