We Don't Wait For Such A Date!

You humans get gifts once a year. That does not work around here. The cat wants them once a week or Pat will be up the creek. We can easily make that occur, leaving him more than fur.


All through the house the toys gather.
New ones Cassie and I would rather.
But I catch a little nap,
While we wait for that Pat chap.


I see he is back.
Empty handed at our shack.
So I give him some sass,
Worthy of my rhyming ass.


I sass and snub.
He better get some grub.
That is double the attitude.
Yes, the cat is rude.


See! Cassie is even too prissy for my sass.
The cat says more than just ass.
Pat and Cassie have nothing on me.
I'm like a foul mouthed sailor at my sea.


Then I just ignore.
Pat better go explore.
I want new toys now.
He won't get another meow.


Works every time.
He drops everything on a dime.
We get more stuff.
I can chew off the fluff.


I give Cassie one,
And away she will run.
The rest is for me.
That string sure is yummy.


Then I sit beside Pat,
Like a nice, happy cat.
I even set my tail up just right.
Until something else catches my sight.


What could it be?
More toys or Cassie?
Nope, not today.
Nap time at our bay.


It's my chair.
So you can sit and stare.
I got what I wanted in the end.
Boy, it is hard work, this toy hording trend.

See, you humans are just doing it wrong. Yeah, you can sing a happy Christmas song. But I get new toys every week. No waiting once a year for a sneak and peek. The cat has it down and can be quite crass. But that you knew about my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

    The Cat gets them without any tricks
    Just a little persuasion
    Even without reasons
    Gets around it satisfaction guaranteed

  10. Today it's cold, so on this subject I won't linger
    But somebodys got someone wrapped around their finger
    Orlin lets all know that he's the boss
    For words he's rarely ever at a loss
    New toys he wants, he's never shy
    He works the system, easy as pie

  20. Hey Pat, where you're at! For three days in a row, I've been interrupted in a comment and not gotten it finished on your blog. Unreal! This latest post was awesome, but then I do love seeing photos of Orlin and Cassie. They certainly know how to work it ~ pressies all through the year. Your song about the search engine crazies was fun, and so was your latest zombie chapter. I started reading Max Blizzard last night ~ got about 25 pages in. So far I have really enjoyed it, and your imagination comes shining through. You have such a unique voice which makes reading your prose refreshing. I can't wait to see where this goes. I have the actual book because I find it much more pleasurable to read a book than read on my computer. Have a good one under your sun!

  22. You know what I love best
    Pictures of kitties full of zest
    I miss my kitties oh so bad
    One day I'll get more of what I had
    One didn't need toys in my house
    She was too busy catching every mouse
    Hiding her stash in my shoes
    Then purring as I discovered her news
    Three more didn't need toys
    They were content with yarn joys
    Everything I made was riddled with cat hair
    So much love they would kindly share
