Chairman Mao




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!
