Kimo & Sabi

At first I thought I would do separate limericks for Kimo and Sabi, but then I thought, "Naw, they do everything together, so I should do their limericks together, too." I read this great story about how they escaped from the house recently, so I wrote a series of limericks about their great adventure.

Kimo and Sabi were both born on the Fourth of July, but in totally different litters. Their Mom and Dad adopted them together and they have been inseparable ever since. They eat together, nap together, play together and get in trouble together. They do have different personalities, though. Kimo likes to go outside on a halter and leash, but Sabi doesn't really enjoy it. Kimo likes to collect coins and bottle caps, which he then drops in his food bowl. Mom puts these items in a can for him and that becomes his fun money. Sabi would much rather play with a feather toy than hunt for coins. Both of them like to blog about things that are helpful to cats and their people.

Not long ago, Daddykitty decided to go outside to take some photographs at night, but forgot to close the door behind him. It didn't take long for Kimo and Sabi to find the open door and take advantage of the situation to go outside. Mommakitty discovered the open door pretty quickly and the lack of cats in the house. She went outside and called to them. Sabi answered right away, but was a little spooked by this big thing coming toward him in the dark and backed away. Mommakitty reassured him, then caught him and brought him back inside. Kimo was having none of this going back inside. When Mommakitty saw him, he puffed up, hissed, spat and even swiped at her. It took Mommakitty a long time to calm him down enough to smell her hand, but then he came to her and she took him back inside, too.

                                    Kimo and Sabi saw a chance to run free,
                                    So they snuck out the door as quick as could be.
                                                  Mom missed them and cried,
                                                  "Are you both outside?"
                                    Sabi meowed, "Here I am!  Come and get me!"

                                    Kimo was braver and wanted to stay
                                    Outside in the dark to sniff and to play.
                                                   Mom saw him and cried,
                                                   "Kimo, please come inside!"
                                    But he hissed and he spat and meowed, "Go away!"

                                    Now Kimo and Sabi are both safe in the house.
                                    Poor Daddykitty is feeling just like a louse.
                                                     The hero is Mom.
                                                      She is da bomb!
                                     Three cheers for the cat-catching Queen of the House!

Oh my, Kimo and Sabi, don´t do such things! It is very dangerous outside, especially for indoor cats and especially at night!!!! I know this because I am a bad girl sometimes and do stay out at night. Drives the staff insane!
