Purrsday Poetry: IRISH CATS from LIMERICK

Hi everyone,

Today’s Purrsday Poetry post comes from  Les Noble).


A cat is a creature with pins on its paws;
A rather nice set of sharp fangs in its jaws;
You make them disjointed
Responses are pointed –
You pause with the jaws and the claws as the cause!

When love on cats’ senses may fall
They have on a wall quite a ball;
When cats caterwaul
Their call can appal –
That bawl up the wall sends us all!

    All those rhymes remember me on the famous book ‘Alice in Wonderland’
    with the grinning cat … 😀
    I’m German, so I’m not able to do poetry or limericks in English,
    but I admire people who can do easily 😉

    Thanks for posting my ditty, and to those who commented kindly above. The model for the photos, by the way, is Mister MacGregor, a rescue cat and now the undisputed ruler of the household with five dogs, two little girls and three adults as subjects.
