Friday Flash 55 — Pet Thoughts at New Years

Enough Already! by Anji Johnston

My expression says, Ho-hum,

this year is now over
. —

But my insides are all jumpy

(same thing’s true for Rover).

Loud noises make us grumpy

and scare us out of our wits.

So, be your pets' heroes

wearing cool New Year outfits:

Please close all the windows —

feed us soothing treats...Oh yum!

Last year, my next door neighbor scared the bejeezus out of both of us when he shot off a 4th of July style rocket at midnight. I thought a power line had fallen on the house.

It is always good to remember to be kind to one's pets at holiday times. My dogs enjoy all of the extra activity and a few extra treats. Smiles.

It looks like Tabby found the Catnip...Far Out!!
You are such Quirky Lady Lydia.
You always make me smile, and I'm so proud that you find the time to participate in the Friday Fun.
Loved your Party Cat 55
Thank You for your wonderful support, and have a Kick Ass New Year

Great advice for pet owners in a classy 55.

Happy new Year, Lydia.

Funny, our pets can handle gunfire, but fireworks make them crazy. Happy New Year and good treats to all!

Fab. One recommended change for rhythm:

'And scare us FROM our wits'

Read both versions outloud; you'll see :-)

I wish in 2014 I stop wanting to participate in flash 55 and instead do .
Assuming G-man doesn't mind...

Happy new year, Lydia. I love you

giles is currently out but we will have to get him in early as people round here start letting off fireworks during the day and want to make sure he's ok

Hi Lydia!

Loved this little poem of yours--it's true and perfect and sweet. No fireworks here on New Year's, very quiet.

Thanks for your comment. I think I needed to hear that my post made sense as I tend to not follow the dots when I write.
I've been overtaken by some physical problems this year so I haven't been blogging as much, but I know I will return to it.

It's great to know you are still writing and active.

Happy New Year! XO, Katherine
