Tavi



Tavi rates two pictures, too.  The top picture goes with the limerick, to show how relaxed Tavi is in the stroller.  Don't worry about the stroller being open.  Both Tiki and Tavi have on their harnesses and leashes and Tara has a firm grip on both of them.  The second one is Tavi in the PTU, which he loves, to show you his handsome face and beautiful eyes.  Tavi really does love the PTU.  If the Mom picks it up and holds it in the air, he will jump into it.  If the Mom moves it to clean, he will jump into it.  The only time Tavi doesn't love the PTU is when it is taking him to the v-e-t.  Another thing that Tavi absolutely adores is laps, anyone's lap.  If someone comes over to visit, Tavi is in their lap.  If someone who doesn't particularly like cats comes over to visit, Tavi is in their lap and demanding attention. Tavi is the most laid-back of the cats.  Nothing ever seems to upset him.  He wrestles with Tiki and Cody and plays with toys and enjoys his nip, but never seems to go on a tear around the house.  He sleeps with the Mom every night, on top of the covers and between her legs. Tavi is a Tonkinese cat, a breed I don't think I had every heard of before.  Their markings are very much like Siamese, but their head shape is slightly different and they have a bump on their nose.

                                Tavi's a laid-back Tonkinese.
                                He lounges around at his ease.
                                      He goes for strolls
                                      In the buggy that rolls
                                Still lounging happily at his ease.

Thank you for doing a limerick for me Karen Jo. I am the most laid back of all of us (except Camie), and my PTU is my absolute favorite thing to be in besides laps. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

Gosh, what a gorgeous boy Tavi is. Looking at his photo, and the color of his fur, I found myself thinking about coffee ice cream, which I love. But I don't have any coffee ice cream here. I guess I'll just have to look at Tavi some more!

Maybe Tavi got the bump on his nose from not having his seat belt on.

We has missed so much since we's been not bloggin for a few days!

Camie is such a pretty woofie and Tavi has a mysterious ghostly look in his picture.

Christine and FAZ said...

No offence to Tavi, but I've never met a cat before who really liked the PTU. Are you sure about that Karen Jo? FAZ

Oooh very nice limerick! I have never been out strollering, but I have been on a harness and leash. I bet strollering is nice, I wonder how to convince the bosslady to give me a raise so that I can get one!

Tavi, I cannot believe you like going in the PTU. I have only been in mine once and that was to get...the man surgery. Otherwise when we go to the VET I get to go in my mom's arms. I hate the PTU, I cannot believe it stole my manparts. Hmph.

What a great poem, as always, Karen Jo! Tavi is a very cool buddy.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Tavi is a very handsome cat. Mom has never heard of a Tonkinese before. That was a fun story and limerick.

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

I have heard of Tonkies before, they are furry pretty felines. My Bean had a woofie named Tavi. Much like the kitty, he liked to sit in laps. Only he was 90 lbs. worth of lap woofie!

PB & J said...

He certainly does look relaxed! Wonderful limerick!

Shilgiah the Cat said...
