A celebration of the kitties (and their friends) of the CatBlogosphere in verse.

Here is Cocoa doing the Monty Q. She is an 80 pound Chocolate Labrador and she is full of energy. She likes all the kitties, especially Nitro and Xing Lu. The morning routine at the Meowers from Missouri goes like this. The Dad gets up at 0 dark-thirty, because he leaves the house at 6:00 am. First he lets Cocoa out to do her business, then feeds the cats. He picks up any cat food leftovers, then lets Cocoa in to eat. When she is finished, he puts her back outside, because she is very rambunctious. When the Mom gets up at 6:45, she may let Cocoa in for a while, then puts her back outside when she goes to work. Well, one morning it was hammering down rain and the Dad felt sorry for Cocoa, even though she has a very nice dog house, and left her inside. Cocoa had a blast inside. She chewed up everything she could get her mouth on, including a soda can and the water spritzer. Nitro was very pleased about that. The Mom was not pleased at all. Cocoa will chew and sometimes eat all kinds of things. She got hold of some modelling clay once and ate it. Then she had technicolor poop. Cocoa will sometimes protect Xing Lu from the other cats when they are chasing her and she is yelling. Cocoa just loves to play with Nitro. Nitro will get up on the recliner foot and bat at Cocoa. Cocoa will poke Nitro in the side with her nose. This goes on until Nitro decides that Cocoa is poking him too hard and leaves. Cocoa will chase Nitro around and try to corner him. When she catches him, she gives him a thorough and very wet bath. Nitro puts up with this, though he often doesn't look to happy about it. When Cocoa is in the house, all the cat food and toys must be put away. Cocoa will eat the former and chew up the latter.
Cocoa bathes Nitro with a tongue like a wet mop. Nitro accepts it, though he wishes it would stop. On and on it goes From his head to his toes 'Til Nitro is soaked and wet as a mop.
