A Monster At The Other Sea That Causes No Glee!

So dVerse wants us to find that monster at the end of this book. Whoops, read that the other day at another nook. I guess they have good timing I suppose, but the kiddo there still curls the cats toes. Yet at another sea there is something way more creepy. Thankfully it is not here but there it scares my little rhyming rear. Here or there, confused yet at my lair?

We jump from the cage,
Check our page.
Then go to explore,
When at that other shore.

Slap a cat or ten,
As they stroll around that den.
Bite a dog tail.
Fun to hear him wail.

Then there is a noise.
It causes us no joys.
That thundering cry,
Has to be Zeus in the sky.

Or maybe just Humpty Dumpty having a fall.
Or some human with one less brick in the wall,
Off to study the writing on the bathroom stall.
Sadly, that is a true study at ones hall.

And there it is again,
Roaring out across the den.
With its even tune,
My tail puffs up like a raccoon.

Cassie watches from afar,
I peek at it as the door is left ajar.
But then it creeps down the hall,
And I spring up the wall.

Taking off under the bed.
Could I be a monster there a kid might dread?
Hmm that could be fun to do.
But not with this thing in my view.

Its shriek hurts the ears.
It causes many fears,
As off those cats scatter,
Even the ones that are a tad fatter.

Good exercise I suppose.
As the sound grows.
It is getting near to us.
I need to board a bus,

And take off for home,
Where this monster doesn't roam.
Oh wait!
There is no need for such a debate.

I'll just sprint to the wall,
At the end of the hall,
And put an end to this thug,
By simply pulling the plug.

I guess there is an easy way to deal with many monsters at our bay. If all else fails yank the rip cord. Of course if you don't have a parachute you may end up as flat as a board. But that is a whole other story. So what is the monster at the end of this rhyme in all its glory? I think they call it a vacuum cleaner or something like that. It is not liked by this cat. I'd go bury it in the grass and walk away a proud little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  2. I used to have a dog that was scared to death of the vacum... He would bark at it until I would put hime outside so I could get my work done. one day I held him down and vacumed his fur. He liked it so much he wouldn't leave me alone when I vacumed because he wanted his turn.

  3. My mom used to chase our little dog around w/the vacuum when I was a kid, I totally forgot about that...it would make her (the dog) jump around and bark and try to eat the vacuum. I forgot about that...

    The book you mentioned in the beginning...huge hit with 3 out of 4 of my kiddos. ;)

  12. I have a Rhoomba, the thing that runs around the room by itself and cleans every corner. The dogs chase it, bark, try to bite it. I have gotten so I kennel them when I do this. You would think they would have adjusted to this & ignore it by now, but no.

  14. These monsters can be heard
    through all the walls

  15. Hi! Pat Hatt, and those two scary cats...
    Ah!...
    So, it's not a "broom...
    that will make them run...
    and hide in another "room..."

    By the way, you cats...
    it want/will? make you leaner, running from the vacuum cleaner...
    You don't want to be fools
    You want to be cool [kewl]
    Therefore, do as your "Master" suggest...

    "just sprint to the wall,
    At the end of the hall,
    And put an end to that [monster] thug,
    By simply pulling the plug..."

    Ha!ha!
    deedee :)

    1. That is all we need to do
      Here at our zoo
      Grab the cord and yank
      Then make the monster walk the plank

      That we just strike

  17. haha Five of our cats take the vacuum in stride
    but the rest certainly run and hide!
    Samantha is the bravest, though,
    following it where ever it goes!

    At first I thought the monster was thunder
    which also makes most cats wonder
    if the sky will fall
    and they'd be better off inside the walls,
    or under the bed
    as the sound causes them dread!

    1. These two barely ever see it
      So they have a bit of a scary fit
      When they go to the other sea
      And it comes at them they flee
      Must sound bad indeed
      With their super hearing needing them to take heed

    2. I saw one time on America's Funniest Home Videos a family that had a cat that didn't mind the vacuum and they actually used the attachment on it's fur instead of brushing him! haha...its was hilarious! I know none of mine would go for that, but it would cut down on the loose hair! haha.
