Batman


Batman is one of the Turkey Cats. There are four of them, all from the same litter. There used to be five of them, but Rita went to the Bridge last year. Now she watches over the rest of them. They were all born on March 29, 2005 and adopted from a shelter together by the Mom and Dad. They all get along great, though there is plenty of kitty wrestling and a bit of whappage. Batman is the cat who likes to cuddle the most. He loves his Mom and likes to ride on her shoulder. He also likes to sit with her in her chair while she helps him blog. When he was a kitten, he would purr whenever someone sang him the Batman song from the TV series. His Dad has a serious comic and memorabilia collection and Batman helps him by guarding the door. His Dad lets him in the otherwise off-limits room each day, so Batman can inspect the collection and make sure that all is well. The Turkey Cats got their name because they all absolutely love turkey Stinky Goodness. When the beans have finished dinner, Riley jumps on the TV and yowls for turkey. Lately Batman has been joining in. Then they all get their turkey. Batman is very polite about it. They all four run into the kitchen for the turkey, but Batman usually sits back and waits until the others have finished eating before he eats. This means that sometimes he doesn't get much to eat. Shhh, don't tell the others, but sometimes the Mom slips Batman a little extra turkey, just to make sure that he isn't going hungry.

                                     Batman is the politest cat of all.
                                     Oh, he runs when he hears the dinner call,
                                                 But he'll sit and wait
                                                 By the dinner plate
                                     Until the others have eaten their all.

Batman sounds a lot like Grayson. He will do much the same if Gandalf seems extra hungry. He's such a thoughtful brother.

Batman sounds like a good brother. Flynn isn't. He eats his food fast then tries to hook my dish away from me with his claw.

Batman is a cool cat!! Proper gentleman too! Just what I would expect of a Mancat and fellow House Panther :)

Oh, Karen Jo, thank you so much for visiting me and for helping Artsy Catsy pay my vet bills! I didn't even know there was such a thing as loving, caring humans and kitties and your good wishes and prayers are keeping my heart so warm at the vet hospital this weekend.

Your new friend,
Mr. Milky

Batman may seem very calm and laid back, but when Gotham City is threatened, watch out!

I'm so glad that Batman's mom saves him some extra turkey - it wouldn't be fair otherwise!

I love his limerick! :)

The Devil Dog said...

Sounds like Batman knows how to get extra treats, all right. That is pretty funny. Another great limerick and story.

Mom thinks you are correct about why I don't jump down from the table. I wonder if she will put a tablecloth or something on it to give me better traction.

Thank you so much for the limerick! I love reading about me. We all went to the v-e-t today and I was the only one who didn't get fluffier. Now it's time for some turkey. Yum!
