Virgil


Virgil was the third cat to join 4 Boys and a Lady.  He came as a little kitten last fall.  Nico took to him right away, but Maggie had to hiss at him a bit to establish her alpha cat status.  Virgil took it all in stride and now he is every cat's friend.  He hangs out with Nico, sits in the window with Maggie, plays with Nermal with the red plastic tape and has a ball with the newest member of the family, Westley.  He did hiss at Nermal the first time he saw him, but got over that very quickly and now he is the only cat that Nermal seems to actually like.  Virgil also likes to inspect the orchids when it is watering time.  His Mom knows that the spaghum moss is too dry when Virgil tries to take some out of the pot and play with it.

                                       Virgil wants to be everycat's friend.
                                        For him the good times never end.
                                                He plays hard with Westley
                                                And Nermal, but bestly
                                        He loves hanging out, being Nico's best friend.

We use to take the moss out of Mom's orchids too, Virgil. We also use to break off the orchid bloom spikes. Mom wasn't pleased when we did that.

Thank you, Karen Jo! The limerick describes Virgil to a T. :) He really is one the most friendly laid back kitties we've ever met, and we feel so blessed to have him! (Even when he's being so naughty, hehehe.)
