Don't you just want to give that delectable tummy a rub?  Dazey would like it very much if you did.  Dazey is the most outgoing of the Cyclone Cats and the most mischievious.  She is also the one most likely to get a big hug from the Little Monkey. Dazey doesn't like it much, but she tolerates it without too much fuss.  Maybe she is thinking of what else the Little Monkey does.  All the cats have come to appreciate mealtime for the Little Monkey because he always drops food.  Really good food, too, like tuna and noodles, cheese, hot dog slices and bread.  All the Cyclone Cats like bread, but only Dazey and Jesse eat bread that the Little Monkey drops.  Dazey loves to play with just about anything and anybody.  She knows very well that Jesse doesn't like to play with her, but Dazey pounces her anyway, just for the fun of it.  Dazey and Connor play together quite a bit.  Dazey also really likes catnip toys and feathers and anything she can bat around.  Dazey has one habit that might get her into trouble one day.  She likes to nap at the foot of the stairs.  I am wondering if she will change her mind about how good that spot is for napping once the Little Monkey discovers how much fun Thundering Herd of Elephants is.

Sometimes I come up with more than one limerick for a cat.  Usually, I just pick the one I like best and ignore the rest.  This time I thought I would go ahead and post both of the ones that came to me for Dazey.

                           "Rub my tummy, now, now now!"
                           Is what Dazey loves to meow.
                                On her back she wriggles;
                                And gives cute butt wiggles
                           To entice a human to pet her now.

                           Dazey, Dazey, whatever shall we do?
                           Jesse's crazy, and it's all because of you.
                                        You pounce her without warning;
                                        Her protest dies a-borning.
                          Dazey, Dazey, oh, what's to be done with you?

I am going to try that line with my Mommie: Rub my tummy, now, now, now!
I'll bet it will work.

Two for the price of one, Dazey will be very honoured but I am sure it won't stop her being her mischievious self. FAZ

Great limericks! It's nice to see a cat asking to have her tummy rubbed, 'cos cat tummies are pretty hard to resist. A cute but cheeky kitty.

Hi Karen Jo :)

Thanks for coming to visit Tigger. There's a few websites. There's also this one of mine...

When school goes back I will also start posting on Pyewacket's Party and my other school ones. I have a homework one as well, called The Cat Ate My Homework.

I teach from the websites. And you might have guessed that I'll be having a digital scrapbooking focus for the students.
