Derby


Here is a good picture of Derby upon top of the refrigerator.  He likes it up there, so he can see everything that is going on. Derby first lived with an elderly lady who had him declawed on all four paws when he had his hoo-haw-ectomy.  When she died, he was taken to a shelter where his present Mom found him.  He has lived with her since Derby Day in 2005, which is how he got his name.  He will be four years old next month.  Derby is a sassy cat, often getting into minor trouble and talking back to his Mom.  He got his collar off once and hid it so well that his Mom didn't find it for days.  Derby likes to play and watch the birdies through the sliding glass doors.  He loves sleeping with his Mom.  He is a very affectionate cat, even though he is sassy.  Every week he brings us Fang Shui Friday, which is a lot of fun.  I am not at all sure how to pronounce Fang Shui, so if the rhyme is wrong, please point it out to me and I will fix it.  UPDATE:  I found out the correct pronunciation for Fang Shui (thanks, Cheysuli) and the rhyme has been corrected.

                                               Derby is a very sassy cat.
                                               There is absolutely no doubt about that.
                                                           He studies Fang Shui,
                                                           So he knows the right way.
                                               Let's celebrate Derby, the Sassy Cat.
