Chase


Diamond Emerald-Eyes
requested a limerick for Chase, so here it is.  I read Chase's whole blog, but never found out whether she is a ladycat or he is a mancat.  The only other Chase I know is a mancat, so I will opt for using "he" as a pronoun to refer to Chase.  UPDATE:  I found out, with a lot of help in the comments, that Chase is a ladycat, so I have changed all the "he"s to "she"s.  Thank you everyone.  This is a picture of Chase napping in the car.  She loves to go for car rides and often naps in the car.  Chase is a very special kitty.  When she was around four months old, she was hit by a car.  A very nice man took her to a vet clinic and left some money to help pay for her expenses.  Chase ended up losing a hind leg and, due to the trauma of the accident, her eyelids, nose and all the skin on her face just sloughed off.  Plastic surgery was tried twice, but didn't work.  Chase's face may look raw, but it is just tissue and she is in no pain.  Melissa had just started working at the vet clinic when Chase was brought in and she became her patient.  She would take her home with her at night and on the weekends, so she wouldn't be lonely.  Melissa ended up adopting Chase because she just fell in love with her.  Because she has no nose, Chase has no sense of smell, so she tastes things to learn more about them.  She has a kitty brother and two doggy sisters.  She would love to groom all of them, but Zooey, her kitty brother, doesn't like it, so Chase mostly grooms the dogs.  Because she has no eyelids, Chase must have drops put in her eyes several times a day.  She also likes to nap in dark places, like under the bed.  She has discovered that under the covers, curled up against her mom is the very best place to sleep.  Chase has recently joined Paws for Friendship and is now a therapy cat.  She loves going out and meeting new people and other therapy pets.  She has the cutest pink harness with little angel wings on it to wear on her trips.

                            Chase really likes to ride in the car.
                            It means she will meet new friends near and far.
                                           She's in Paws for Friendship
                                           And feels a kinship
                            To the people and pets she meets near and far.

Awwwww, Chase is an incredible kitty -- she is a girl. *smile* But you wrote an adorable limerick for her, and you captured so well her sweet, courageous, and adventurous spirit. We Ballicai and our beans just love sweet Chase. She is an inspiration!

Chase is a lady cat. It's on her blog on the front page on the left paw side under "About me", which hidden under the chatt box. But that's okay. And that's a great limerick for a really wonderful kitty!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Yeah, she's a lady cat but even she admits it's hard to tell cuz usually Chase is a mancat name. She is furry inspirational and brave. We find her beyootiful!

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

Yeah I do love Chase, quite an amazing cat! Marilyn is correct about her being a girl kitty but I'm highly flattered you decided on "he" because I'm obviously a very manly Chase.

Very nice limerick. Poor Chase. What a life experience he had. You are so kind to write him a limerick all his own.

The Devil Dog said...

Chase truly is an inspiration to everyone, cat, woofie or bean. I think he must have a very special spirit in him/her. I think Chase could be my friend easily.

Yes Arthur's tail is healed but it doesn't stand up as before the top is still falling down to his back. But that doesn't disturb anybody, lol ! (Especially not Rosie)
I saw that your blog has a "College" level, I did this test just this morning and believe it or not, but my blog is "Genius", lol (but this was for my main blog) I have never been a genius in my whole life !!

Chase said...

Thanks for such a WONDERFUL poem about me. You are too sweet!

Your furry Friend!
Chase

Karen Jo,

Someone took a photo of Chase and posted it somewhere, saying mean things about her, which is very upsetting to her loved ones.

And right above Chase's post on that subject is a link to your limerick for her.

So, aside from the fact you have captured the essence of Chase and how much that sweet cat is loved, your timing for posting this seems to be impeccable. They really needed their spirits lifted over there.

This limerick captures your spirit beautifully, Chase! AAAaah, your floofiness is therapy, too!

Tyler said...

We just heard about Chases limerick and came right over. We agree that you did a wonderful job of describing our girlfriend Chase. It's amazing that she's a therapy cat. What good she can do to show where beauty really is.
