Rock-a-bye Mousie
On the Treetop




When Spitty bites
Your tail might come off.
When claws come out,
Little Mousie will fall.
And Spitty will pounce then--
And that will be all.

About half an hour ago, as I rested peacefully, unsuspectingly next to her desk chair, the Human suddenly pushed said chair backwards with considerable force. Imagine her surprise as I emitted a blood-curdlingly shrill yowl of agony!

"MY TAILIO," I screamed, "MY PRECIOUS TAILIO!"

My friends, just gaze upon this evidence.These furs were trapped beneath one leg of the chair, and when it was so carelessly jerked, HALF my tailio furs were ripped right out of their rightful home.

Oh, yeah, she apologized all over the place and followed me from room to room as I sprinted from her in terror. Spitty is not having any of this "Sorry" nonsense. 

No, I'll have recompense more satisfying than "Sorry." Toonas and cream would be a start.

I would have said at least 60% of your tailio furs were ripped out by the Human's clumsy thoughtlessness, Spitty - not merely half. And toona and cream, as you say, better only be the start of the compensation package.

Oh Spittikins, your human is SO HORRIBLE to have done that! I would complain and sulk and refuse treats (well, mebbe not quite THAT) but you know I would make the human pay for fer such careless acts.

But, BTW, the new heaty mat DOES have room fer TWO and I mean YOU and ME. Oh come over soom and let us enjoy snuggling together on it together and snuggling! It would take your mind off your pulled furs.

And I will lick them and lick them until you can barely notice the lost ones.

Ouch! That looks like it was painful, Spitty! Of course your human didn't mean it, but still...

Yikes Spitty, your poor tailio pal!

Spitty, I know you found the expected comfort in your sojourn with me in my girl cave last night as I tended to your magnificent tail as it flagged in pain. Perhaps Iza can see you by appointment soon? A heaty had IS a draw, I know. I shall badger, er, request such from MY mom forthwith!

Spitty, maybe half your tailio is a bit of an exaggeration, but we concur that you deserve toona and cream and lots and lots of treats. Misty May sends kisses for your boo-boo.

Spitty, what a terrific poem for killing your mousie! And so sorry to hear about half of you magnificent talio being pulled off...dontcha think a blood-letting should be in the human's future?

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

Oh no! Your poor tailio has been subjected to a horrific assault.This will take a lot of grovelling on your Human's part.

Mary McNeil said...

Oh noes ! But your Mom really IS sorry - I have to apologize very time I step on a tail or a toe. We are all getting older and our reflexes are not what they used to be !

Spitty, that is just TERRIBLE. You will probably have PTSD for eons. We think you should milk it for at least that long, toonas and ice cream being just the start.

P.S. You poem is catastic!

Great song. I am sorry about your tail, I am sure you will get revenge.

Pam and Teddy said...

Oh NO!!!!!!! Now that's inexcusable. Your sacred tailio violated? Toonas and cream should be the LEAST of the endless stream of apologetic offerings Spitty!

Hugs, Teddy

Just Ducky said...

Oh noes, the human needs to be more careful.

Must remain aloof when you lose floof due to human error, Spitty! Hope you forgave after receiving proper compensation for your injuries in the form of treats and other delectables! - Tom x

Oh no, that's major sin! Play hard to get Spitty.
