Since I will be going on vacation and this will be the last Kitty Limerick for nine days, I thought I would do a Pumpkin extravaganza. This first picture is Pumpkin as a kitten, just because it is so very cute. Pumpkin's cat mom was very smart. She "lost" Pumpkin in the yard of Leona, Pumpkin's Mom-to-be's sister. Leona rescues cats quite frequently and saved the two-week old Pumpkin on October 29th, 2005. She brought him over to Pumpkin's Mom's house in a bucket, along with a nursing bottle and some cat formula. You can see how happy he was to be rescued. Pumpkin got his name because of his color and because he was rescued just two days before Halloween.
Some of you may have noticed that I have a real thing about floofy tails. Pumpkin has one of the floofiest. Isn't that tail just magnificent?
Finally, here is Pumpkin with one of his two favorite toys, a twist-tie. His other favorite toy is a crumpled paper ball. For some reason, he likes to drown his paper balls in his water dish. Pumpkin likes to play with fake mousies and feathers and other toys, but twist-ties and paper balls are his very favorites. Pumpkin also really likes to jump up on things, especially things he isn't supposed to jump up on, like the kitchen counter, the table where the people eat and the top of Quincy's cage. As you can imagine, Quincy isn't too thrilled about that last one.
Pumpkin loves to play with a twisty-tie.
He'll jump on the counter when he can spy
A tie he can grab.
He will quickly nab
And jump down again with his twisty-tie.
