Back In Time With This Animal Chime!

So last week the beer guys reminded the cat of all that came before me. There was much to see. I'd sure go on the hunt there. The tabbies of trout towne may swear. But what they heck. Let's put the past on deck. All but the first two attributed to wikicommons on display at my zoo. This was back before digital cameras and such. Dating myself much?


So there were a few of these.
This one the cat did tease.
 He couldn't catch me.
Such a slow poke at the other sea.


Then there are a ton of those.
There the cat hair blows.
But these two we know.
So on with the show.


There were peacocks.
 They liked gawks.
And they were rather mean.
Peck your eyes out at their scene.


The white ones were more lame.
They never had such a mean claim.
But they sure left a pile of shit.
 Yep, more than a bit.


This guy is as crazy as can be.
He'll peck off your knee.
High strung isn't even enough to describe him.
He wanted to make your life grim.


Chicken shit would describe this one.
He once got loose and had the ability to run.
Did he run though?
Nope, tried to get back into his cage show.


And then there were these.
Can smell them with a breeze.
Heck, even without a breeze.
They sure did not please.


Even had a few of those.
They would strike a pose.
Then try and make the birds a snack.
 Couldn't break through the cage with their attack.


These came on by.
Stabbed a dog near the eye.
How rude they were,
Them and their stabby fur.


And just for the tabbies of trout town.
So they don't feel down.
Suza sent it for me to pass along.
 Is wanting to kill those flashy birds wrong?

There were many more birds too. Yep, a good 15 different kinds at Pat's former zoo. None were as crazy as those above though. The cat would have made them all eat crow. Hmm, bad choice of words there. The stink from the cows sure could scare. Now you have seen the past with this pass. So glad it's here that it is just Cass and my little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  10. Ha, glad to have inspired you!

    Looks really can be deceiving. So the blue one? Beautiful, majestic looking. The white one? It looks like an old man who's ready to hawk really loud and spit in your face. What an angry looking little bugger.

    And cows are like big, smelly dogs. We knew one that loved to play fetch. It could run and chase a football for hours. It also made a great sirloin steak. Yeah, I said it.

    1. lol yeah it did look pissed off every once in a while

      The blue ones went after me a time or two

  14. At the big dairy farm where I grew up,

  19. Such gorgeous animals Cat. The birds are spectacular looking, such colourful plumage..I don't miss living on a farm as it's nothing but work. But I do miss living out in the woods. Not much wildlife to look at here where I'm at and I miss that.

    I didn't know you'd ever owned a dog. He's very cute, what was his name?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah, so many there were
      The work could make your eyes blur
      That and the crap
      Plenty of that at our side of the map
      Wildlife abounded there
      Could see it everywhere

      Yeah, had him a while ago
      Darby was his name-o

      Delete
    2. Did you have Darby at the same time you had Orlin and Cass? I can't imagine those two putting up with a dog. Especially not Orlin, as he'd really have to share your affection.

      My dog Naruto is starting to have real problems. His vision is going and his hips are getting bad. In a few months I'll have to make that hard decision I think. I don't know how I'll handle this one Cat. He's been with me for 14 years. He's made every move with us since he was a pup. Besides The Hubby, he's been the best friend I've ever had. It's the price of loving an animal though. The grief of losing them is terrible.

      Delete
    3. haha yep, Cassie and Orlin came when Darby was around
      Cassie despised the hound
      But she could trick him with ease
      And run past him like the breeze
      And she knew he just wanted to play
      And meant no harm to her any day
      So she didn't act like a dog killer
      Orlin used him for filler
      He liked to whack him and pull his curly hair
      When I wasn't giving him attention at our lair
      Although Orlin did get as jealous as can be
      When I walked Darby at our sea

      Yeah, it sucks every time
      But the way I look at it with my chime
      They lived a long and happy life
      Mostly free from strife
      And I'd rather they go before me
      Then me before them at my sea
      As animals are never the same when their owner dies
      And they sit with nothing but whys
      As long as the owner was good
      Of course in their hood
      But still never easy at all
      When it's any pets last call
