Miss Kitty


As promised, here is a limerick about Miss Kitty herself.  Yesterday I showed you Miss Kitty at her most alluring, so you could see how pretty she is and how well she illustrates her breed of Norwegian Forest Cat.  Today I am showing you her wild side.  She is getting all googly-eyed in her enjoyment of rolling around on the grass and dirt in her yard.  She really enjoys this and it gets her extra attention, as, when she is done, her Mom, The Red-Haired One, gets to brush all the dirt and stickers out of her fur.  Miss Kitty used to live next door to where she lives now, but there is a big dog and other cats there and Miss Kitty just didn't like it there.  She started hanging around The Red-Haired One's yard.  The people next door didn't seem to care and Miss Kitty was out there in all kinds of bad weather, so The Red-Haired One started taking care of her.  Miss Kitty caught a cold and was taken to the vet and became the cat of The Red-Haired One and The Very Tall One, who are now her bean parents.  That was about two years ago and Miss Kitty is much happier now.  She is about eight years old and very active.  She loves being outdoors and has an avocado tree in her yard that she loves to climb.  Miss Kitty is very good at catching bugs and mice.  She will catch a mouse and leave it on the doormat for The Red-Haired One, who doesn't really appreciate the gifts.  Miss Kitty loves being brushed, which is a good thing, because she sheds a lot in the spring, when she loses her winter coat. She also loves chin-scritches.  She has her favorite napping spots and when a bean is in the one she wants to use, she will give a pitiful meow and the big sorrowful eyes until the bean either moves or picks her up and lets her nap in a lap.  Miss Kitty loves meeting new friends and is especially eager to meet any other Norwegian Forest Cats.

                                Miss Kitty eagerly catches a mouse
                                And leaves it on the mat next to the house.
                                        It's a present for Mom,
                                        Who remains calm
                                 And takes the mouse away from the house.

Miss Kitty is a very lucky kitty to have found The Red-Haired One. Mom does not like it when we bring her Birdie presents, either.

That's a perfect limerick for Miss Kitty! Personally, I've never caught or even seen a mouse. My people just won't let me go outside.
