Well it’s almost that time of year and you know what that means for me and my two girls. Fall Fall Fall and big changes to our blog theme and colors. Before we make those changes we girls want to thank all our visitors for popping in and leaving comments and enjoying our kitty poems and neat pictures. Many of you have said we made your day, you always make our day !
Gentle eyes that see so much,
paws that have the quiet touch,
Purrs to signal “all is well”
and show more love than words could tell.
Graceful movements touched with pride,
a calming presence by our side
A friendship that takes time to grow
Small wonder why we love them so.
I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me, And what can be the use of him is more than I can see. He is very, very like me from the heels up to the head; And I see him jump before me, when I jump into my bed.
The funniest thing about him is the way he likes to grow– Not at all like proper kittens, which is always very slow;
For he sometimes shoots up taller like an india-rubber ball, And he sometimes goes so little that there’s none of him at all.
He hasn’t got a notion of how kittens ought to play, And can only make a fool of me in every sort of way. He stays so close behind me, he’s a coward you can see; I’d think shame to stick to nursie as that shadow sticks to me!
One morning, very early, before the sun was up, I rose and found the shining dew on every buttercup; But my lazy little shadow, like an arrant sleepy-head, Had stayed at home behind me and was fast asleep in bed.
