Forty Paws Fur


Here's a bit of silliness to get us through until the regular limericks start coming easily again.  This is Maw's vacuum cleaner after a light going over of two bedrooms.  Of course, it is early summer and winter coats are hitting the floor at an astounding rate, but I get the feeling that this goes on all year.  Lando had a good suggestion and I am off to research bunnies after I finish up here.   I am also going to take Saturday nights off from cat blogging, just to give myself a little break and hoping that I don't run down my limerick batteries again.

                                Mighty is the fur at Forty Paws!
                                It tries to escape the sucky-machine's jaws.
                                    Just two little rooms
                                    Of zoom-zoom-a-zooms
                               Nearly choked this vacuum of Maw's.

Wow, that is lots of fur! My humans sometimes say that they wish they could vacuum clean me directly. I am glad that they have not tried it! They still use the normal fur brush.

Tee hee!!! Maw is laffin and laffin as Jeter Harris would say....

Yup, that goes on year 'round here. Maw got so VERY excited when she got her Dyson almost 2 years ago now.

You should see the dryer lint screen after she washes the bed clothes and bedspreads that cover our furniture. Argghhh.

Paw said we should send the furs to Dragonheart so he can have a fur coat since he doesn't have one. His mom could glue ours onto him...

that is a lot of fur. Mom's vacuum gets to looking like that sometimes. We are moving to Hobbs. Mom says we can't go outside there either 'cause of the cyotes, 'cause they will eat cats and bunnies and rats. Fanks for the information Ms Karen ~the fluffy tribe

*whew*, that's a lot of fur! This is a furry household, too, and much of the fuzz comes from me because I'm the kitty who sheds the most!

What an adorable limerick, KJ! I'm glad your toes are healed up, and I'm glad you're back. I have missed you bunches!

That was very funny. I put some furs onto our carpets and furnitures, but Denis cleans them off regularly. But I don't think he ever gets that many!

Junior said...

Wow! That is tons of fur! Are they all naked now?

Dragonheart said...

LOL! :D That's a very funny limerick about their fur!
