a little advertising won’t hurt

but will it dish out the pay dirt?

because, i’m one terrifying trend

that might portend or offend

and on cracked.com you’ll find the buzz

that cat hair stuff is anything but fuzz

yes, they can humor me all the same

but just you wait

cat hair jewelry will put them to shame!

cracked.com: HAIRBALLS—not just choking hazards for cats anymore!

5 but going on 2!

It’s party time and that means play!

The cake? the treats? that’s not his feast

It’s fun he craves, this silly beast

He’ll race the house, he’s down right wild

As if he were a manic child!

With toys and things he’ll dance and twist

But there’s one thing that can’t be missed.

The hall—With shrieks of joy, he will insist

Open up that door!—can i resist?

There pleasures lurk we find mundane

But smells and sounds are his terrain.

Out, out he goes, to roam and sniff

I’m glad he loves his birthday gift!

bright xmas packages tied up with string . . .

And Meow’s Favorite Things continue on . . .

It’s Christmas day, Oh joy Oh joy!

But not for toys, Oh boy Oh boy!

I race the house, I’m full of glee

To see such fun beneath the tree!

It’s paper, ribbon, and the string

That makes this kitty’s heart dost sing!

I jump, I slide, I hide. I rip, I pull, I bite.

What joy! And all for Meow’s delight!

petting and brushing & tuna as munchies

More of Meow’s Favorite Things . . .

Meow’s hair is silky-soft and thick

And if not combed it tends to stick.

He LOVES the brush

While Missy loves his hair, so lush.

Yes—Petting, brushing, are fine enough

Under the chin, his belly too

But just so much and then he’s through.

Now it’s time to munch, on a tuna treat—or two!

toy with a spring!

This is one of Meow’s Favorite Things. . .

Behind a door amongst puffs of dust

The prey awaits kitty cat lust.

Now paw extends, now teeth do grasp

A squirming prize at last.

To life it comes when dropped or flung—

Whole minutes of kitty cat fun!

Play with me! wiggle thing

A happy Meow’s heart shalt sing!

Cream-Colored Blankets

And on we go with Meow’s Favorite Things: Cream-colored blankets!

Snug-a-lug-lug,

A little bed bug,

In Missy’s bed,

Under the spread.

Cream-colored flannels,

Nappy and warm,

Enfold and tuck,

Such kitty cat luck

And catnapping bliss.

And there he stays,

Snoozing away,

While Missy’s gone for the day.

and maybe…a nap time!

Continuing on with Meow’s favorite things.

The day is new, so much to do!

But first a NAP, then follow through.

I’ll eat a bit, then groom my bib.

And now a NAP, it’s how I live!

A crow to watch, a bee to chase,

I’m tired now, is this my fate?

I guess I’ll take a NAP, before it gets too late!

play time

Continuing on . . . another of Meow’s favorite things: Play time.

Oh how Gaia LOVES to play and play,

and so he does this night and day!

Strings and things transform to toys,

especially for this playful boy!

sleep time

One of Meow’s favorite things: Sleep time.

My kitty cat he loves to doze,

and when he does his eyes aren’t closed.

And if my chance he falls asleep?

His stream of dreams? They aren’t of sheep!

. . . The star? No other than the famous flame-point Ragamuffin cat Gaia. I based the storyline on “My Favorite Things,” a show tune from the 1959 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The Sound of Music. .  .
