Nitro S Pierce

Here is Nitro waiting for his chance to sip some of Mom's coffee. She puts cream in it and he can't resist. In fact, Nitro likes just about any kind of human food. He has been spritzed with a water sprayer, knocked on the head with knuckles, been rapped on the noggin with a spoon and he still goes for the food whenever he thinks he has the slightest chance of grabbing some. This is one of the reasons that his Mom insists that the S stands for Stubborn. One very wet and rainy day, a friend of the girlbean found Nitro in a dumpster and took him home to be friends with her woofie. That didn't work out at all well, as it was loathing at first sight for both of them. Then the girlbean took him to live with her and the boybean and their two kitties. That didn't work out, either, as Nitro kept beating up the other two kitties, so he came to live with Mom and Dad. There was a bit of a ruckus at first, but now things are pretty calm among the kitties and woofie. Nitro likes to wrestle Edmund, but Edmund soon tires of the game and finishes the match by sitting on Nitro. Nitro also likes to chase Xing Lu around, but the Mom usually comes and intervenes when Xing starts really yelling. Cocoa the dog really likes Nitro and often gives him a bath. Nitro likes to tease Cocoa by sitting on the foot of the recliner and swatting at her when she goes by. Nitro's favorite toys are catnip mice and feather toys. He once caught a real mouse in the kitchen. He ate everything but the tail, which he presented to Mom while she was still in bed.

                                    Nitro stalks the human food.
                                    He hopes his folks don't see him intrude.
                                                     When ravioli is near,
                                                     He sings loud and clear.
                                     Nitro really loves the human food.
