Mr. Tuck



I finally get to write a happy limerick again, and who is happier than Mr. Tuck? Mr. Tuck started out life as a feral kitty, but he was caught when he was quite young and taken to the vet to get his shots and be neutered. The vet tipped his ear after neutering him. I know that this is a standard practice for trap/neuter/release programs, but Mr. Tuck wasn't going to be released. He went to a shelter where Jen and Frank found him and adopted him. Mr. Tuck has always been a happy kitty, full of fun and mischief. He adores his beans and loves to be cuddled. They both work, so Mr. Tuck sleeps most of the day and he rushes to greet them when they get home. He wants his loving and he wants it now. When he was small, he used to get bored in the middle of the night, so he would wake Jen up to play with him. He is mostly over this now that he is a mancat, but he wakes Frank up at 5:30 every morning. Mr. Tuck is mostly gentle with the wakening, or he tries to be. He starts with the soft paw on the face, followed by loud purring in the ear. If that doesn't work, he tries running across the bed at full speed, making sure that at least one paw lands on Frank's stomach. If all else fails, there is the toe chomp. Mr. Tuck has fishy toys and mousie toys. He has twice put a fishy in his water bowl, but has never done it with a mousie. He is one smart cat. I know that kittens don't react to catnip, but I don't know how old they get before they start to react to it. On the other hand, Mr. Tuck seems to actively dislike it. He will totally ignore any toy that has catnip in it. He loves feathers. He is very good at stripping the feathers from a toy, then just playing with the feathers. Mr. Tuck has a great sense of balance. He has been known to lie on top of the flat-screen TV.

                                                Mr. Tuck is a mischievous boy.
                                                He knows what he wants and is never coy.
                                                      Early morning he wakes his bean.
                                                      He can't be stopped by any means.
                                                He can't be bribed with a treat or a toy.

Oh my gosh! I just saw this! Jen has been so busy traveling with work that she hasn't been helping me visit as much as I like. I'm so honored that you wrote this wonderful limerick for me! I'm so sad that you are taking a break from blogging, but I understand why. Please let us know how you are doing from time to time!

hi ppl. I'm actually into shoes and I had been searching for the sake of that exact brand. The prices due to the fact that the velcros were approximately 200 dollars everwhere. But finally I bring about this site selling them for the benefit of half price. I in reality like these [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]prada sneakers[/url]. I will definetly buy those. what can you tell me about these?
