One-Eyed Jack


The Turkey Cats requested limericks for Jack and Persephone.  This is Jack wearing his Viking clothes. He is a fierce Mancat and an expert on vishus deer. I recommend that you read his paper Vishus Deer of the North. Jack lives in Alberta, Canada, halfway to the North Pole, he says. He lives with his sister, Persephone, his OTW (Opposable Thumbs Wench) and The Big One. He has lived with the OTW since the day he was born eleven years ago, as he was born in her apartment to, I think, her roommate's cat. There were four in the litter and, to keep them straight, they were given simple names to tell them apart. Jack was just known as "the other black one" (there were two black kittens and two tuxies) until he opened his eyes, or rather his eye. He then got the name One-Eyed Jack, which he keeps to this day. Jack is a very friendly fellow, which is a good thing because through the years, he has lived with 26 other furries. No, his OTW didn't have that many. Before she married The Big One, she had a series of roommates and different apartments and most of these furries belonged to the roommates. Jack is quite fond of catnip, but he doesn't get into it as much as Persephone does. Jack also enjoys playing with wand toys and chasing fake mice around the house. One of his favorite things is to watch the birds from the windows and the deck. Jack's girlfriend is KC.

                                   Jack is an expert on vishus deer.
                                   He advises all kitties to stay clear.
                                         He is also a Viking
                                         With clothes so striking
                                   That he strikes fear in all vishus deer.

A favor? Maybe... a little limerick to welcome Cat In The Bag (Zoey's Dad) home from major surgery and hospital... tomorrow? Short notice... but he'd be thrilled. THANKS!

It's good to know that we have an expert on Vishus Deer. It's not good to rely only on Vishus Deer Repelunt!
