I am still not feeling good, but I do to see my doctor tomorrow.  I did finally manage to write a limerick.  Shadow lives with TT, Molly, Fatty and their beans.  He is the only mancat and the calmest of the cats.  He nearly died when he was a tiny kitten in 2003.  Some very mean people dropped off Molly and Shadow and their momcat and left them to take care of themselves.  When their new Mom found them, Shadow was so cold and hungry that he couldn't even lift his head.  The Mom took him home and wrapped him in a warm blanket and fed him sugar water.  She couldn't get Molly at that time, because Molly was too fast for her to catch.  The Boy took care of Shadow when the Mom went to work and Shadow has been devoted to him ever since.  Shadow even kneads and sucks on the Boy's blanket while the Boy is at school.  Shadow loves catnip, but he will only accept it if it is on a plate or in a bowl.  If it is just on
the floor, he will ignore it.  Shadow also loves to play with toy mousies and feather toys.  Shadow is polydactyl, having three extra toes on each of his front paws.  He talks to Fatty through the door, when Fatty is outside.  He really likes Fatty, though Molly and TT don't care for her much, especially Molly.

                                     Shadow is the mighty mancat of the house.
                                     He stays out of trouble and plays with his mouse.
                                           He's quite fond of Fatty,
                                           Though she drives Molly batty.
                                     Shadow's quite content with things in his house.
