Bounce is a 15-year-old tuxie who loves napping on his Mom's bed or on the recliner.  His two sisters annoy him a little bit, but mostly he just ignores them, unless he feels like pouncing Lucy.  He used to be a mighty hunter, but he has slowed down a bit with age.  He was born to a litter at a neighbor's house.  When his Mom and Dad went over to choose a kitten, he climbed right into the carrier they brought and made himself at home.  Of course, they had to bring him home after that.  Bounce likes his cat food OK, but what he really wants to eat is people food.

                                           Bounce likes to eat what the people eat.
                                           Whatever it is, he thinks it's a treat.
                                                             He will sit and beg,
                                                             Or paw at a leg
                                           And demand to be fed what the people eat.

Hi Karen Jo, Thanks for the limerick about Bounce - you really nailed it!

Bounce will eat any kind of people food, for example: fried rice, macaroni and cheese, meat of any kind, cereal and the list goes on. I think he figures if it's good enough for people, it's good enough for him!
