William of Mass Destruction



Here is William doing one of his favorite things, attacking the weather-stripping on the door. This and the way he goes after paper towels and toilet paper is how he got his name. He loves chewing on weather-stripping so much that once he got into his Mom's bedroom and opened a drawer where she was keeping a new package of weather-stripping. He had a grand time with it. William lives with Olivia, who has a kangaroo inside her (which she blames for the mischief she gets into), and Caroline, who bites his ears. He had an older brother, Eddie, who went to the Bridge not long ago. William also enjoys watching all the birds who visit the feeders his Mom has put up.

William attacks the weather-stripping.
He says, "It's lots more fun than 'nipping."
It's off of the door
And all over the floor
Before you can say, "What's that ripping?"

Very nice poeme ! Poor William, he suffers as my Arthur does ! He is a hard working cat, under cars, in neighbors beds, in our wardrobe and on top of all he has to walk around all people on our street and climbs in all cars ! He also walks the postman from letterbox to letterbox. I wonder how he does all that without being overworked !

Ha, good one! We love all your limericks. Now our humans' morning routine is:
1. Feed kitties
2. Make coffee
3. Drink coffee & read limericks.
4. Pet Rocky ...
