Texas


I have been thinking about Texas a lot lately. He isn't doing too well and may have to go to the Rainbow Bridge soon. I thought that if I did a limerick for him, it might cheer up his Mom and Dad and him a little bit. Texas is a big, fierce Mancat who is battling lymphoma. He came to his Mom and Dad in October of 2005 when one of his Mom's co-workers was moving and couldn't keep Texas any more. Texas moved into his new home and made himself right at home. He even made friends with the birds who were already living there. He claimed a big chip box as his very own and still has it. He has a unique way of eating his kibble. He takes a piece and drops it in his water bowl. Then he fishes the piece of kibble out of the water and eats it. Texas has become quite a snugglebug lately and is spending lots of quality time with him Mom and Dad.

                                     Texas is a cat who loves to fish.
                                     He drops some kibble in his water dish.
                                           Then he fishes it out
                                           To put in his mout'.
                                    Then he looks for another piece to fish.

We're glad you wrote about Texas today. We hate the thought he'll be leaving soon.

You were the only one to get all the answers right in Faz's guess the animals for charity questions. Very well done.
