With Each Claim I Take No Blame!

You know Pat blames me for a lot of things as I run about our wings. That makes it sound like we have a big place. Nope, averaged size apartment we embrace. But anyway he keeps blaming me and we can't take the fifth at our Canadian sea.

Look at all the litter on the floor.
It goes right out to the door.
Don't go looking at me.
I blame that one on Cassie.

There was a huge bang,
And maybe a bit of a clang.
You found glass on the floor?
It was a magic elf wanting to explore.

You almost stepped in goo?
Are you telling me a hairball came due?
Those birds just spit them through the window.
I think you would call those kind a crow.

That cord is chewed a bit?
I did not do it.
It was that shadow on the wall.
Did you not see it running down the hall?

There is water all over the floor?
My, fish sure like to explore.
They have to take water with them you know.
Or else they would dry up and shrivel like a zombie toe.

There are holes in the shower curtain?
I told you that you should not be flirtin.
That is not good for you,
For things may turn blue.

The mat is upside down?
Why are you looking at me with a frown?
It just wants to get the dirt off of it.
So it twirled around a bit.

The curtain rod looks a little bent?
That was some guy trying to pitch a tent.
He snuck in when you were at work.
He had a real evil smirk.

You hear meows in the night?
Boy, that must be a fright.
I bet it is those neighbors next door.
They sure like to umm explore.

There is cat hair on the couch?
Okay, just so you will not be a grouch.
I will admit to that.
But what do you expect from a cat?

Geez, Pat blames me for everything around here. I bet he would even blame me if someone scratched his ear. He really just has no class, always trying to blame my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  3. If nothing's wrong there's none to blame
    Or otherwise it will get someone aflamed
    Don't antagonize
    That'll be wise
    Or be prepared hearing excuses so lame

  5. Cats are never to blame
    The fact that Pat blames you is a shame
    He's probably guilty of all the aforementioned transgressions
    I think you should scratch him until you get a confession

    1. I've scratched him a time or ten
      He seems immune to it now at our den

  6. An interesting crow
    spitting thru the window...

  7. Hahaha So cat gets the blame
    My oh my ain't that a shame
    A lttle puss would do nothing wrong
    Would never jump to hit the gong
    It's the "Evil One" for the score
    He enters through the locked front door
    Cat likes "Evil One" as a patsy
    Better him than a big gray ratsey

  8. It is just not fair.

    Throw in an instance were kittens are chasing each other at 4 am and they run over a sleeping human head or two and you cover what the felines get blamed for hear as well.

  9. I keep hearing noise from my kitchen, the pan cupboard, and I'm certain the snake in the basement has changed his location. It's a large dark corner cupboard with a small door - would you like to come over and explore?

  13. No idea how Pat could blame such sweet, innocents. I'm sorry to hear of the atrocity. And it really COULD be elves. We had one in our house at Christmas time who caused all kinds of mischief!

    1. Yeah those elves are the cause

  22. bent curtain rod and meows at night
    i can relate to the damage and noise fright
    something barges around the room
    it's definitely not the vaccuum in a zoom
    something makes a clatter
    makes my sense of calmness splatter

    have a great weekend, sir. thank you so much for your support and encouragement at my place:)

  23. Once, we had a Persian cat,
    So we knew just who
    To point the finger at.
    If something got chewed,
    Or we found pee on the floor,
    It had to be him,
    But now... no more.
    Now, there are two cats at our place,
    And both of them with an innocent face.
    If the table has a hairball upon it,
    We never know for sure whodunit.

    1. haha with two you never know
      But table hairball is eww at your show
      At least the cat doe it on the floor

  26. This is your best rhyme yet. I hope you stay away from the vet. Excuses are not needed, a cat shan't confess. Here at our house, the King is totally blameless. We can totally relate to that suspicious fate.

  27. A cute post!
    It tickles my funny bone the most.
    Coming from a family of five kids,
    putting the blame on others is what we dids.
    Obviously you are an intelligent cat!
    All that creative blaming where you're at!
    Have a happy weekend,

  28. Maybe in the budget could go
    a housekeeper or a maid
    and then no messes on the floor
    and the cat wouldn't be afraid

    that he would take the blame
    when obviously he is not at fault
    but then this this rhyme
    would have to halt.

    If cat air is anything like corgi hair, I'm sure it is a never ending battle to clean it all up :)

  30. Sorry cat the clues lead to you
    with some strange things in view
    perhaps, a ghost gave you fright
    as you ran around during the night

    just don't chew the captain's hat
    or I will come after you for that..haha

    hope tomorrow is a better day

  31. "Blaming you?" Say it isn't so.
    Pat of all people should definitely know.
    To be a cat is to be free and arrogant like that
    Often comical, smart or lazy like a mat
    So my hair strands are strewn here and there
    Who cares that my claw marks are littered everywhere?
    And the meows, and shadows and kitty litter too
    Who cares about the what, when, where, how and who?
    We are what we are and will be what we'll be.
    The most magnificent, loyal companions you' ever did see.

    I heart your rhymes! :)

  32. My cat was a horrible puker until I changed her cat food (she was allergic to the red dyes in the food). She'd puke right in front of me and stare at me, like, "well, clean that up...don't want the dog to enjoy it"
