Cheery As Can Be Are We?

The cat hears this thing about Christmas cheer. Pffft where is it for my rhyming rear? I must get the short end of the cheer stick. My end is just rather ick. Don't believe me? Look at this spree.


I know what's to come.
So I hide my rhyming bum.
Can you guess too?
Cassie surely knew.


This was it.
I hate this shit.
Can't you see I'm not impressed?
That doesn't even need to be confessed.


Then we get at the other sea,
And a mutt starts to taunt me.
 Pffft like I'd fall for that.
Not getting this cat.


Then we have another one.
This one is more fun.
I can chew on him.
 What is that he's eating on a whim?


Why it's a hairball.
 Isn't that yummy to all?
Pffft a nasty mutt indeed.
His tail though is tasty feed.


Hmm, what is this?
 Could give bliss.
It can move about.
I'll have to try it out.


Works for me.
Whoops, time to flee.
 Pat is back to packing.
I get no more attacking.


Ugg once more.
Stuffed in for the encore.
I'm still good and pissed.
It still can't be missed.


Now I'm home.
365 days or so until I roam.
I have to get my energy back.
 So not cheery at my shack.


Of course she's as happy as can be.
Posing there at our sea.
 Cassie is just a kiss ass.
Although she did hiss at the mutts in mass.

Now do you see why the cat has no time for cheer? I get lugged around by my rhyming rear. Swatting ten cats, avoiding one big mutt and chewing on two more small mutts sure is a lot of work. I have no time to give a cheery smirk. Plus that cage fills me with rage. Cassie just sits there and hogs space in mass. But I hog back with my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

    1. Just a temporary setback
      Lucky me good to be back
      The Blue wave
      Caused a daze
      But a nice streak in fact

    5. The Blue wave is always tops
      Difficult to have him stopped
      And when he says, 'gangway!'
      All had better to give way
      #1 he says is his coveted slot

  4. No cheer...
    Oh dear
    No Bora beer?

  10. The kitty cats have no cheer
    because a furry dog is near
    but a dog should make them purr
    not want them pull out all their fur
    a dog just wants to run and play
    the cats are just confused at your bay
    let the doggy give them lots of licks
    I'm sure the cats won't think that's sick
    if that doesn't work at your sea
    then send the dog over to me

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. lol that one will never make them purr
      As it runs around in a blur
      But if you want it at your sea
      I'm sure they'd ship her for a little fee

  13. I can see why they wouldn't like the cage
    since at home they are allowed to roam free
    good thing you don't travel at a regular rate
    I'm sure this would cause them much hate

  16. Our cat never liked traveling at all. Staying inside all the time was a ball. Only trip we made was to the vet for a shot, and that made the cat's temper pretty hot.

  26. The new cat is so easygoing and willing to travel anywhere. The bigger cat, though, who's 16 lbs of pure rage, won't even let me hold her for longer than 30 seconds without turning my flesh to Swiss cheese. I can't imagine trying to stuff her into a cage. I've come to accept that she will just never leave this house. Vets do house calls, right...?

  27. Haha! Cats have such different personalities. By the time I get Patches in the carrier, my arms are bleeding like I've been in a fight. Well, I guess I have, and Patches won. Tiger's just the opposite. He never fights me, just meows pathetically. And at the vets, he's eager to get back in the carrier, after they've given him shots and whatever. Don't even think about hairballs. Ugh.

    1. lol yep, they can be quite opposite indeed
      One hates the vet and the other just rolls over so she can get back to our feed

  30. Ugh, I hate travelling too. Well, maybe just packing. I always forget something, and miss my home when I'm gone.

    My cats haven't been to the vet in a while. They love prowling around inside the car when the doors are open, by sure run away when the engine starts. The fight like hell to get away from the cat carrier.

  34. By the time I've scrolled down
    The words of this clown
    Have forgotten what the cat said
    This feels me with dread
    So instead
    I whiz to the top
    Then I stop
    Have another read
    Yes indeed
    Then I scroll back down
    Just like a crazy clown
    The cat's in control
    As I drawl
    From my up and down scroll
    Have fun with a hairball
