George


George just loves being loved.  He is a member of The Crew, along with Max, Tipper and Misty.  George is the oldest kitty and will be 11 in July.  He was adopted from a shelter when he was 10 weeks old, along with his litter-sister, who has gone to the Bridge.  George likes all his siblings, but seems to get along best with Max.  His very favorite food is tuna water and is very disappointed that he now has to share it four ways.  He says that he doesn't get nearly enough of it now.  George has a delicate stomach and only eats dry food.  He does have hairballs, which he usually deposits on the back of the couch.  That's because the back of the couch is his favorite place to sit,  because he can see out the window.  He'll be there, peacefully watching the world go by and, suddenly, up comes a hairball.  His Mom calls the couch the "throw-up couch".  The kitties like to sit on the back of it, but, for some reason, the humans don't sit on it much at all.  George loves to sit with his Dad.  One day George was chilling out with his Dad and his Mom decided to use the hose attachment on the vacuum cleaner to clean up the cat hair and dust in the hard-to-get-at places.  For some reason, she decided to vacuum George, as well.  Much to her surprise, George purred and rolled over on his back to get her to vacuum his tummy, too.

                                     George does not fear the vacuum cleaner.
                                     Other cats may flee; he keeps his demeanor.
                                                 Mom once vacuumed his fur.
                                                 It surprised him and her
                                     That George actually liked the vacuum cleaner.

Eeeeek! Even the sight of the vacuum cleaner makes my adrenaline start flowing ...

Great limerick, though!

P.S. I don't understand why the beans don't like to sit on the couch much!

Crystal likes the vacuum cleaner too. Rusty tolerates it once in a while. The others fear it.

Hahaha That is very funny. Neither Lucky nor I like the vacuum cleaner. It is much too loud. It is neat that George likes it.
