Recitation.

Kitties!


KonaKitty here, relaxing in my heavenly Heaty Cat Cup.

Our friends Derby & Ducky issued a challenge (via the Trout Talkin' Tabbies) to come up with a parody of The Twelve Days of Christmas without making any references to birds.  After giving this some thought, (and taking a few naps) I decided to go with a Mojave Desert theme!
So, without any further ado, my rendition of:

The Twelve Days of  Mojave Catmas

On the twelfth day of Catmas, my true love gave to me
Twelve scorpions stinging
Eleven Lizards lounging
Ten Jacks a-jumping
Nine Bobcats hissing
Eight snakes a-rattling
Seven Mule Deer Braying
Six Coyotes* yipping
Five Ringtail Cats
Four Bighorn Sheep
Three Black Widows
Two Gila Monsters
And a Pack Rat in a Mesquite

What do you think?  I rather like it.


Happy Wednesday!

XX  KonaKitty  XX


*Properly pronounced ki-oats, not ki-o-tees, which is for rubes.

  7. Uh, I like it, in theory, but I don't want ANY of those things. Let me be clear Salem, in case you're tempted to send them: No, no, no! And no again.

    Well, okay. Maybe a sheep. But nuffing else.

  14. Great job, Kona Kitty!

    Lishy would be happy to show you all how to store spiders in pantaloons. Pantaloons are an excellent place to raise them as minions!

  21. KonaKitty, I love that heated cat cup. Love it.

    That was a very clever song. But, the lady got a shiver when she read that first line because she was stung by a scorpion a couple of years ago! It REALLY hurt.

  22. That was mighty good, mighty, mighty good!

  23. We like a post that makes Mom laugh out loud-she sang it to us and it sure is a PURRRfect song (but maybe not her voice is so good)
