Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Greetings and salutations my friends!! I'll be hiding sitting up here
while you read our Q poem

Angel Sammy and brudder Teddy

Today's 4 word challenges are 
quiet, quarrel, q-tips, quack

Quiet days are a rare here
Especially when mom gets her brain gear.
She gets a bit crazy but is never lazy.
She thinks she must always be busy 
with this and that. Once she thought
it would be good to clean my ears.
As she approached me with a q-tip,
a quarrel passed my lips.
I hollered woman you are a quack.
If you come near me with that stick, I promise
I'll flatten you with a mighty smack.
She backed off lickety split
This hissy kitty cleans her  ears with kitty spit
You should never use sticks


Sissy and BIL pulled into their driveway at 12:41 am. She said oh is it good to be back East. I expect there was a gleeful reunion with the kitties.
Needless to say Mama and Papa Bear here are extremely glad to have the kiddos just 3 hours down Hwy 70.

    Sage advice contained within the rhythm of a rhyme! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. MOL! My ears are one of the few things my human hasn't tried cleaning.

    P.S. I just had a bath today. Yuck.

  4. What a great poem, Madi! Mom cleans my ears with a cotton ball with baby oil on it.

  5. Run Madi, run when you see that stick coming. We do not allow the cleaning of ears around here You all have a fabulous day.

  6. yay and wildly clapping for the safe trip home to the kitties. so glad they are back safe. ha ha on cleaning with kitty spit... would have loved to see the SMACK when you tried to use the Q tip....

  7. I am just now reading that they were in Las Vegas. Seriously made my heart stop. I'm glad they are safe and sound. XOXOX

  22. Ear cleaning! shudder!!!
    Queen Penelope has ear mites and a fungus when she came to first live with them. It took both Mommy and Daddy to hold her while her ears were cleaned. She could have written the same poem as you Ms Madi!


Please leave a meow or bark for Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
Life is short, spend it with those who make you laugh
