From my Window November 16 2017


Angel Sammy and brudder Teddy

Today's 4 word challenges are
window, wink, worry wiggle



From my window I spy
birds galore and chippers. 
And of course the nasty squirrels who destroy Dad's 
planters and make him cry.
Often to my surprise and glee my friend the red
Cardinal wink(s) at me as he chows down on sunflower
seeds and suet without a worry.
Me thinks he might not realize a fierce cat I be.
The tiny chickadee is quick to take seed in a flurry.
The chippers are by far the best at scurrying.
The robin and his misses on the ground do roam.
They hop and skip about, their single mission is to quickly find

a worm that wiggles to take home.

Kitten: February 23 2017

Kitten
When I was a kitten, I had a sister with white mittens. 
We shared a cage at the adoption center.
She was mostly Tortie, I was not
I'm told we played and romped and could be quite
sinister. 
We had no names and no homes.  
We were labeled Kitten L and Kitten M.
Then one day in the middle of May
along came three big people.
They ooooohed and ahhhhed and
discussed our furs and our cuteness.
Later we learned these big people had names and homes
that they wanted to share with two kittens.
As quick as greased lightning we two kittens
got names and homes.
Lots of papers were signed on the dotted lines.
That day in May we became Lucy and Madi
I went home with Mom and Dad!
Lucy went home Mr.G


Just: February 16 2017

J
BY Madison D Cat

Mom thought and thought about
 the purrfect J word.
She scratched her head so much it bled.
She tried so hard she almost cried.
Jump didn't make her blood pump
Joke nearly made her choke
Jambalya was hot but she thought 'fraid not
Jelly made her belly jiggle
Finally she gave me a jingle 
I said mom how about

To which she replied I guess I can if I
Must

Ice Cream: February 9 2017


Ode to Ice Cream
To mom from Madi

In Mom's wildest dreams there is endless Ice cream.
Everyone knows this is not a scheme
She truly loves this frozen delight
She owns no stock in any cream
Each year in January she silently dreams
about her birthday cake, what flavors, what colors, 
will Dad request.  
She says no matter the theme,
there never has been any
 Ice Cream that was not the
BEST!!



Humans: February 2 2017

Humans...
by Madison D Cat

Are a strange breed!
We love'em in spite of the crazy notions
 in their head.
My contract states I follow their lead
 when I sleep, play and  eat.
Hey I say, I am leader not a follower.
To be predictable is not in my DNA.
Humans are strange, their needs are many.
To them I say, let down your furs,
shake the fuzzies our your head.
Come follow me instead.


Sincerely Madi the leader.

GRITS: January 26 2017

Grits
aka Girls Raised in the South
by Madison D Cat
This is a recycled photo from a Wordless Wednesday



Girls from the South are often thought to be
Refined, kicking up their heels is on their minds
If caught, they might try to flee
They whine, beg and plead from jail to leave
So my friends if you find yourselves in the South remember to BEHAVE.

Eyes: January 12 2017

Eyes
by Madison D Cat

Last week during the deep freeze my eyes
I gazed in  disbelief while visiting my loo
My green eyes 

turned blue!!

The view from my once lovely loo



had no leaves, no birds that my eyes could see.

My sunpuddle had turned to ice 
Which made me think twice
Do I really want to use a loo with no view?!

THE END!!!!
I heard all those collective sighs of relief!!

PS:  I'm taking a poll should I ask mom to by me some blue contacts?
