The Cat Continues To Thrive At Five!

So today the cat turns five at his bay. But I still look young I say. You humans ask all the time how to stay young. I will help you out so you don't go pop a lung.



 First you need to be aware.
Have to watch all at your lair.
Don't be afraid to give an evil glare.
Or just sit there and stare.


Then get your exercise.
Fight or chase flies.
Fighting is more fun.
Just watch Cassie run.


But don't play fair.
Screw that at your lair.
Attack and don't be kind.
Whack your foe in the behind.


Or bite them too,
When they can't see you.
They never know where you will attack.
Just watch out for their return whack.


And don't eat that GMO crap.
Blow that off the map.
Just eat some yummy grass.
Works for my little rhyming ass.


Get lots of toys.
They bring joys.
Making you play.
Keeping you young at your bay.


And stretch every day.
On back the chair you can lay.
Just stretch those arms.
You won't raise any crazy alarms.


And don't forget the side stretch.
If those toys you have to fetch,
You will need to be in shape.
You don't want to be round like a grape.


And eat some yummy fish.
They are quite the tasty dish.
That stuffing is the best.
It just gives me such zest.


But most of all,
Don't be afraid to try new places at your hall.
Fit within the cracks.
Good for what ails backs.

So there you are, tips from my bar. Now you can stay as spry as me. Well maybe not Manzi or Betsy. They could be too far over the hill. Ooops, out that sorta did spill. Now I will go eat a huge mass that is sure delight my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  30. Happy Birthday to Orlin. He looks young enough to be two again. I like the tips to staying young with tricks. It helps to have someone to chase. And to the food, I'm sure they do race. Loving the tight hidey-hole, too. My kitty is in the cupboard right now, it's true.
