By my count this is my 100th Kitty Limerick, so I decided to write a limerick for Zeus, who is one of the most famous blogging kitties around. Why did it take me so long to get around to writing a limerick for Zeus? To be honest, the middle two lines (the short ones) have been in my mind for months, but Zeus has so many talents that I had trouble deciding what should go around them. The rest of the limerick finally came to me last week and that's when I decided to save him for limerick #100.

Here is Zeus relaxing on his Gizzy quilt. He is a Classic American Short-Hair Orange Tabby. He was born on January 1, 2001. His Lap Lady found him in Pet Smart when he was a kitten. The people there thought that he was "broken" because he purred all the time. It turned out that there was nothing at all wrong with him; he's just a happy-go-lucky kitty. Zeus writes a fantastic blog in which he covers a wide range of subjects -- from news articles concerning the horrible things that people have done to animals of all kinds to neuticles and everything you could imagine in between. It makes for fascinating reading.

                                    Zeus is a blogger of great renown.
                                    He's been everywhere; perhaps to your town.
                                             There is no excuse
                                              For not reading Zeus.
                                    He's one of the best cat bloggers around.

Thanks for adding me to your blogroll, and for introducing me to Zeus. I actually didn't know Zeus was such a famous blogger...then again, I've only been blogging for a month. I'm going to visit him right now!

Hi Zeus, looks like you are the honoree of the day on Karen Jo's site. Really like the picture, you look so colorful on that quilt. Karen Jo you're always on the ball with your limericks.

How can a kitten be broken just because it purrs? Stupid beans....

What a great tribute to the Great Zeus!
