Derby and Ducky have issued a little challenge to create a new version of  The Twelve Days of Christmas using creatures that are not Burds (The Trout-Talkin Tabbies, where all this originated, duz nawt like The Burds!) I came up with a tasty ♫ ♫  Rodentia Version ♫  :


On the twelfth day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
Twelve mousies twitching
Eleven voles a-sniffing
Ten rats a-running
Nine chipmunks chewing
Eight squirrels a-scrambling
Seven shrews a-sneezing
Six gerbils jumping
Five guinea pigs
Four capybaras
Three handsome hamsters
Two tiny muskrats
And a porcupine in a spruce tree
*    *    *    *    *    *    *    *    *    *    *    *   *
I collected Nellie on Caturday and we set off in the cold December afternoon to the Empress Hotel in Victoria where we enjoyed a Cream Tea with Mouse Tarts and tiny Vole-and-Cream-Cheese sandwiches.
Nellie was a delicate and refined Lady who nibbled daintily at her tart and sipped her tea. I, on the other hand, having recently become a glutton, slobbered as I vacuumed up my fudz and slurped my drink. The wait staff were extremely courteous, saying nothing to me as they exchanged sympathetic glances with Nellie.
We headed back to her tiny village, well-fed and sleepy from our outing. Nellie invited me in for a snuggle and a nap before I set out for the City-by-the-Bay.

MOL!!

P.S. The lady's got that "Secret Agent Cat" song going through her head and it won't stop!

Cathy Keisha said...

Love your version of the 12 Days and the photo is da bomb! When I see you all vicious, I want to come over and have a tumble and then seal it with a kiss.

Katnip Lounge said...

Spitty, our wheels have been turning over D & D's challenge also!

Do you have any crumbs in your ruffles? Miss Salem is feeling a tad peckish...and lonely! Maybe you should take a spin out to Sin City in that snazzy FURarri!

Cory said...

Spitty, you are such a player!!! Sheesh.

Catio Tales said...

We never realised a porcupine is a rodent. We are always willing to be educated.
But tell us, how will you fit Miss Salem in the furrari ? And we assume you will be visiting multiple restaurants to satisfy your mutual lurve of food ?

Angel Prancer Pie said...

If that furrari could talk, the tales it would tell! MOL!

Pee Ess - most excellent songwriting!

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Spitty! That picture is SO an invisible rock and roll microphone!! You're a screaming rock god! MOL And as always, you look so wonderful in the sun!

What a nice trip with Nellie! And I bet she didn't even say a word about half of your food dribbling from your chin! ;)

Star says: I love your song, it's making me hungry...
You're putting a lot of milage on that Furrari! But it's just like you to be so sweet and take everyone for a ride. when you get tired, come over and I'll give you a snuggle and massage your driving paws. XOXOXO

I love yours, Spitty - it's tasty even without the birds!

Rumblemum says she's been to the Empress, but she doesn't remember seeing two such good looking kitties when she was there! (good thing she didn't or she might not have come to NZ!)

Catio Tales said...

By the way, we forgot to say that your fiercesome roar in the first photo looks just like you on your official coat of arms of Kiimamaa.

Angel Simba said...

Great rodential version of the song, Spitty, but what is a capybara?

Pat Hatt said...

Like that version of the song, chowing down on those a cat can do no wrong.

Mollie said...

At least you weren't wearing funny looking striped socks when that bench fell on you. And your Purrarri is sure seeing a lot of action! (Did we get the name right? The mom isn't too good with cars. And a lot of other things for that matter.)

stomps paw down...WELL! I never!!...you take all those ladycats somewhere special and all I got was the 'hood...SPITTY! And I have stood by you, helped you learn to get off your enlarged butt and get some exercise with the peacock feathers I sent...and yet, all I got was the local 'hood!!! Well, as Cathy Keisha was the one who told ME about those FEV-VERS you say you love, then you could at least pick her up, she does have the Fast Leopard Tunnel Teleport unit like mine now,. and take her somewhere out of HER HOOD!! just sayin'...Savannah
