Spirit loves her flying feather wand.
She can leap three feet in the air and beyond
To catch that feather
And see whether
It can fly again once she bites her wand.
Sweet Ariel and her Mom requested that I do a limerick for Chairman Mao, who is Ariel's boyfriend. Maomao showed up last year at the Ballicus house as a stray and first appeared on the blog in December. He made himself at home in the garage, where the Dad has a workshop. He bonded with Dad very quickly and soon moved inside. Maomao soon made friends with the other cats, though Dorydoo still doesn't much care for him. He is very attached to Brainball, following her around, snuggling with her and wrestling with her. He is still full of kitten energy, being about a year old now, and is always getting into something. He has learned how to open all the kitchen cabinets. He will play with anything he can get his paws on and delights in killing evil coffee stirrers. His motto is : The whole world is a kitty toy.
Chairman Mao is a very busy cat.
He can kill a coffee stirrer in nothing flat.
He pulls out drain stops
And jumps on counter tops.
He writes poetry, too. What a talented cat!
Chase gets two pictures because I wanted to show him with his Awesome Man and the famous tail poof. Chase does this unique tail poof whenever he goes to greet his Awesome Man. It shows that he is very happy. Chase is the only cat I have ever heard of who does this. Chase is a six year old tabby. He has lived with his present family since he was about six months old. He originally lived with a mother and daughter in a small apartment, but they decided that they didn't want him any more. Luckily, his present Mom was looking for a cat and found him. He spent most of his first five years as an only cat, then Latte moved in and Kaze followed shortly thereafter. He likes both of them and plays with them, but they bug him sometimes.
Chase loves, loves, loves his Awesome Man.
He sits near him whenever he can.
He poofs his tail
In love like a gale
Whenever he sees his Awesome Man.
