Maggie


Maggie is three years old and the alpha cat at 4 Boys and a Lady.  She is the alpha because she was there first.  Nico and Virgil calmly accepted her rule, but Nermal doesn't know quite what to make of the situation yet.  Now Westley has joined the clan, but he seems to be fitting right in.  Maggie sometimes bullies Nico, maybe because he is such a laid-back cat.  Maggie is a real snuggle-bug with the Mom and sleeps with her every night.  She gets a bit jealous if any other cat comes up while she is snuggling with the Mom and whaps him on the head.  She will also try to take a toy away from another cat if he seems to be having a lot of fun with it.  She wants her privacy when using the litterbox and really gets upset if another cat walks into the room while she is using the box.  She likes to test out her water before drinking.  She taps the water with her paw, then licks her paw.  If the water meets her high standards, then she will drink from the bowl.

                                 Maggie is the alpha -- she is in charge.
                                 She's very feisty, but not all that large.
                                           One thing dismays her:
                                           Nermal never obeys her.
                                 He just won't admit that she is in charge.

What a cute kitty ~ Maggie's is such a lovely cat family - the limerick is well written and fun as always!

Nermal, Nico, Virgil, and Maggie said...

Thank you so much, Karen Jo! We feel very honored. We love the limerick - it exactly describes the feline family dynamic in the house. :) Nermal says that he should be in charge because he is the oldest after all, ehehehe. (^_^)

Maggie seems like a very sweet kitty. Snuggle bugs are the best kind to have.

That sounds like an interesting household. that is a really neat limerick. You have a very special talent for catching the essence of a cat or dog and writing it so that everyone can enjoy it.
