Cat Poem

...lurk low, leap high, hunt brave, hide shy,
blink warm, stare cold, play young, yawn old,
purr sweet, growl mean, fluff fat, stretch lean,
crouch short, strut tall, act big, sleep small.

Bits and Bobs for Friday, 7 April 2006

1. Do you like chicken? I do, probably my second favorite, after crablegs
2. What is 1 food you can't live without? probably potatoes
3. Are you an early bird or a night owl? definitely a night owl - I don't do mornings willingly.
4. Chocolate or vanilla? chocolate - vanilla is b-o-r-i-n-g
5. Are you more of a cat person or a dog person? cat - dogs are nice and all that but they're more demanding than a child.

The difference between a cat and a dog:

A dog thinks: They feed me, they shelter me, they love me, they must be gods.
A cat thinks: They feed me, they shelter me, they love me, I must be GOD.
