By request, I am writing limericks for Spider and Smudge. Here is Spider looking quite calm on the table where he is not supposed to be. Doesn't seem to faze him much, does it? Spider is five years old and a former shelter cat. He is a real cuddle puss and loves to sit in Kas' lap. He will jump through a hoop for treats, especially duck jerky. Spider, Smudge and Kas live in Canberra, Australia. The other day, Spider figured out how to open a sliding door to get outside and he and Smudge gave Kas a scary time, until she caught Spider and Smudge followed them back inside. Luckily the two of them were a bit intimidated by being outside and were just creeping around the yard and easy to catch. Spider is the more easy-going of the two cats, but he will cheerfully join in a wrestling match whenever Smudge pounces on him. The two of them really enjoy a good race through the house, as well. Spider wasn't too happy when Smudge joined the family at first, but now they get on well together. This time of year there are lots of moths and other bugs to hunt and Spider enjoys this a lot. The cat grass has grown up to munching height and Spider loves getting a chance to "mow" it.
Spider likes to chill and relax,
But he always has to watch his back,
For Smudge will pounce
With a mighty bounce
And that's the start of a wrestling match.
