Wordless Wednesday - Cat on a (not so) Hot Tin Roof (and a bit of doggerel)



'Twas an evening in November,
As I very well remember,
I was strolling down the street in drunken pride,
But my knees were all a'flutter
So I landed in the gutter,
And a pig came up and lay down by my side.
Yes I lay there in the gutter
Thinking thoughts I could not utter,
When a colleen passing by did softly say,
'Ye can tell a man that boozes
By the company he chooses' -
At that, the pig got up and
Walked away.
-Anon.

That is a lovely spot you are perched on in that picture.

Our toys are actually little Mini Coopers filled with nip. Meowm went to a Mini rally witha friend and someone had made these, so Meowm spoiled us and got us one each.

How'd you get up there?? We bet you got the best view!

Mum used to sing that song in college about a century ago!
We like the sentinel, lord of all he (she?) surveys...

Your lucky to be out...when we were adopted Mom signed papers promising that we would only be indoor cats. We do understand since there are coyotes, deer, raccoons, fox, and eagles roaming or flying in this area. We looked at your previous posts...love your Gizzy quilt, great colors! Thanks for visiting our blog Faz=^Y^=the Cat Street Boyz
