I wasn't even going to try to write a limerick yesterday, but this one came to me at work, which is where I write most of my limericks.  I have some very routine stuff to do every day and my mind is free to wander.  I was researching Pippin before the sadness started, so it was just simmering in my mind until it could take shape.  I won't push the limericks, but if they want to come, I'll post them.

I like this picture of Pippin because it shows off his mancatly toes and his handsome face.  Pippin lives with Turtle and Pickle.  Pippin is actually very active, but he is able and willing to take a nap anytime, anywhere.  He likes to get up high and watch things at times, but he finds it very difficult to resist a good sunspot on the floor.

                                         Pippin is a cat who likes to nap.
                                         He'll quickly doze off in someone's lap.
                                                  A sunspot on the floor
                                                  Provides warmth galore,
                                         Then Pickle comes by to give him a whap.

Welcome back. Great limerick as always. Fortunately, noone in our house is a nap whapper. We only get whapped (by Tavi) when Mom sings or whistles - she is terrible.
