Junior


Here is Junior playing with some tissue paper.  He just loves tissue paper.  Junior is a five year old flamepoint Siamese.  As far as I can piece the story together, Junior started out life in Denver, Colorado, where he was rescued from the home of a hoarder.  He was taken in by Rocky Mountain Siamese Rescue, who found him a foster home in Wyoming.  He was there for two years, until his present Mom found him when she was looking to adopt another Siamese because the cat who came before, China, had gone to the Bridge and she was lonely.  His present Mom picked him up in Wyoming and drove him to Utah, where he lives now.  Junior is a very dominant cat, so his Mom decided to just have him as an only cat.  There is just the two of them and they love each other very much.  Junior likes to wake his Mom up in the morning by grooming her hair, which drives her nuts, but it does get her out of bed for breakfast.  He loves catnip and his favorite toy is his catnip carrot.  He has learned that the catnip is inside the toys and has torn up quite a few toys to get at the catnip so he can eat it.  So far the carrot has survived, even though it was his very first catnip toy.  Junior also loves his millie beds from Siamese Rescue.  He has two of them -- one with a flame design and one that matches his coloration and has eyes and a tail.  He also loves to look out the window and watch the birdies.  Junior very much enjoys watching his Mom take a bath, but he is careful to stay out of the water himself.

                                   Junior loves to play with tissue paper.
                                   Pouncing on it is a muscle shaper.
                                            He loves how it crinkles
                                            When he paws the wrinkles.
                                  He is always ready for a tissue paper caper.

That is a great story and limerick. I can imagine how his mother feels being woken up in the morning by being groomed. Mom doesn't like it when Lucky chews her hair.

Hmmmm. These "only child" families don't know what they're missing. But Junior does. He doesn't have to share his mom's attention. Or any of his toys.

Come to think of it, being an only child sounds kinda good right now.

Junior, congratulations as you are Cat of the Day on kitty limericks. Karen Jo has done you justice.

I really liked Caesars memorial limerick. So sad, purrs and prayers are still going up for the family.

Well, I see you already have the thinking award, but I thought of you when I recieved mine, and wanted to give it to you also.
