Thoroughly Poetic Thursday and Int'nal Bear Day

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Angel Sammy has suggested one of these  H words:
happy, hobby, heart, home
but you know me I'm an overachiever...I'm using all 4!

I am happy tell you on this poetry day
Mom and I a hobby do share.
What is it you say?
The art of being crotchet(y)ers.
I won't be shy, I'll tell why.
When mom is home, and she gets antsy
She knows it is yarn for which she yearns.
Crocheting is what calms her heart.
Thumbs I have not.
I yearn for bacon not yarn. 
Crocheting is not for me.
It is with glee I proudly announce
I am Madison D Crotchety Cougar Cat.
I have a red hat with a sassy sash.
I wear it every which way and I'm fine with that.

Sincerely Madi 
Proud to be a Crotchety Cougar!!

Today is also International Bear Day on Ranger's Wacky Calendar

We thought we'd show you some photos mom took at
Grandfather Mountain last year

Here is a photos of the bears now living in the the beautiful facility
Every day at 11 the bears have an enrichment session with their
keepers.  This one knows what is his tongue is ready...
for something sweet

THIS BEAR CRACKED Mom UP..I think his tummy must be full


  1. Cool! You wear the hat as well as Binga does!

  2. love the bears... but to cuddle with them could end with more than we can bear ;o) the idea to found this fab lady cat club is fabulous and I'm sure there are a lot of adventures for you and the red hat ladies :O)

  3. Great hat Madi.
    I too yearn for bacon.
    Toodle pip!

  4. Actually we prefer bacon too! You look adorable in your red hat!! Those bear pictures are awesome!! We especially like the one where he has a full tummy! :)

  5. Hari Om
    Well I love to crochet too, Madi - but of course don't take bacon... so you have that and I will pick up the hook. Oh those bears are wonderfurs!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  6. I love you in your red hat, Madi! I agree with yearning for bacon instead of yarn - any day of the week!

  7. It''s been an honor getting to know Miss Madi's new name =^x^= Madison D Crotchety Cougar Cat.... MOL

  8. I love your red hat Madi and we know that red is Mom's favorite color.
    That bear looks like he could be watching TV.

  9. LOVE the bear pics and especially the bear and cubs statues.. I can't believe you let MOM put a HAT on you... and let it stay long enough for a photo. looks like she crocheted it just for you..... I yearn for bacon not yarn is ME TO....I love bacon and I love bears but not yarn

  10. That hat is kind of cute Madi, but I don't believe any of us would wear that. Good for you to join the crotchety cougar group, although we don't think you are at all crotchety. Have a wonderful day.

  11. Bears are very cute. That's a great poem - and you look so fine in your hat.

  12. You are stylin that hat Madi!!!!

  14. Are you a member of the Red Hat Society now? Those bears look cute, but I wouldn't want to meet one up close!

  15. Oh wow! Those bears look super cool! Too bad we're terrified of them!

  16. Oh, whew. When you said Bear Day, we thought you meant Bare Day and that we should all run around without our collars on!
    Yours sincerely,
    Margaret Thatcher

  17. We like your red hat Madi! Mom and Dad went to a Wildlife Museum in Chinook Montana on their way to Canada last week. of course all the animals were stuffed but they found it quite interesting and there were some bears
