Here is Mickey getting ready to chomp a blade of grass that his Mom got for him outside.  Mickey loves grass, but he stays inside, so Mom has to go get it for him and feed it to him one blade at a time.  He really has her trained well.  In 1993, Mickey's Mom had just lost a long-time kitty and was at the vet's filling out some paperwork.  The vet lady asked her if she would be getting another cat and the Mom answered that she would know when the time was right for that and she wanted another long-haired black cat.  Just then they both heard a loud meow and the Mom remarked that some patient wasn't enjoying his treatment.  The vet lady said that it wasn't a patient, but a kitten waiting for adoption and it was a black kitten, but it was a short-hair.  The Mom said she would take a look.  The kitten was Mickey and as soon as he saw the Mom he stretched out both his arms to her as far as he could reach and meowed really loudly.  To the Mom it sounded like, "Take me home!" and so she did.  Mickey has two four-year old sisters whose companionship he enjoys, though he doesn't play with them.  At fourteen, he much prefers lying in the sunshine, watching the critters outside and snuggling with his Mom to playing.

                                        Mickey loves having grass to eat.
                                        His Mom brings it inside as a treat.
                                               He finds it sublime.
                                               One blade at a time,
                                         His Mom feeds him his grassy treat.

Mickey is in love with MissPeach too

This was a great sooperdooper limerick.

we did not know you were back... mom has been busy.
We are glad you are feeling better.
Funerals and saying goodbye is very hard. It is hard to start a new life without that loved one.
Of course you got sick with all of that sadness.
The tummy thing was going around here too, Chrystabelles boyfriend had it and almost every kid that mommie knows at cherch.
We are hoping mom does not get sick!

(((hugs))) and purrrzz
