Caroline is the newest addition to William of Mass Destruction's house. She was adopted from a shelter and arrived on Thanksgiving Day in 2005. Unfortunately, she also had the kitty version of Kennel Cough and was quarantined until she got over it. No kitty else caught it this time. She has Restless Tail Syndrome, which means that she whacks other kitties and people with her tail quite a bit. I wonder if putting the bitey on is contagious among cats of the same household. Eddie used to put the bitey on newspapers he found lying around; William puts the bitey on weather stripping, paper towels, toilet paper and rubber gloves; Olivia puts the bitey on the blinds and Caroline puts the bitey on William's ears. Caroline is part tabby and part Meezer. The Meezer side shows up most in her vocalizations.

Caroline likes to talk and talk.
She can even talk and walk.
She talks when she eats
And asks for treats.
She talks enough to make William squawk.

That was great! She sounds like a fun kitty, if she is bit testy.

You remind me of Dr. Suess sometimes! Caroline is a very purrrrrty kitty!

Yes, sometimes that talking can get to be a bit much. We had feline kennel cough come into this house via some fosters once and we found out we had it because the guinea pigs started coughing!!

Another great limerick! You made my mom laugh again. And we never thought about the whole biting connection--I think you have something there!
