Tillie


This is Tillie in her favorite box.  She barely fits, but she loves to climb in and stay a while.  Actually, Tillie loves to climb into about any box or basket she can find.  Tillie is four years old and lives with Mickey and Georgia, her littermate.  Tillie is the shy one of the trio.  Georgia likes to tease her.  Tillie likes to play with Georgia some, but she seems more at ease lounging in a box or snuggling with the Mom.  When they all go out to the porch, Tillie has a box there that she likes to spend time in.

                                  There's a box in which Tillie likes to sit,
                                  Though she can barely climb into it.
                                                 It makes her smile
                                                 To stay there a while.
                                 It's warm and cozy and just a fit.

Your limericks for Tillie, Georgia and Mickey are wonderful! We know these cats well - mom and their mom are sisters so - (thinking, thinking) - that makes us furcousins! Tillie is definitely less shy around our mom when she goes to visit. Tillie goes right over to her for scritchies and purrs a lot. We are glad she and Georgia got a great home with Mickey and his mom.

*giggle*! Tillie is reminding me of Brainball. There's a box he's doing exactly the same thing with, these days!

What a precious limerick for Tillie, and an adorable picture.

I think that box is a perfect fit. Except for Tillie's little leggie that had to stay outside the box.
