Hot Stuff

Part the First
Sometimes a boy needs a different radiator 
and it would have been nice if the Human could have 
foreseen this eventuality and provided a nice beddy 
for me so I did not have to absorb the warms 
while lying on the hard floor. Don't you think?

Part the Second
Over the past couple of years, the Human 
has been the recipient of two wildly diverse Action Figures.
She has chosen to pose them in an artful little tableau 
on the dining room plate ledge. I don't get it.
Perhaps there might be a prize of some sort
for a good story?

MOL! What a hoot! Maybe RBG is disappointed over such a tiny bucket of chicken? Or that it's on the floor? Gus seems unfazed as usual, even with the gavel perilously close.

And yes, the human *should* have anticipated your needing a bed near that radiator.

A story with RBG? Cool.

[Apologies to the Walrus and the Carpenter)

The POTUS and the SCOTUS got into debate one Day
About which flavor treats were truly right for a cat one day.
The POTUS claimed that Health Care ruled and treats be probiotic.
The SCOTUS argued back that treats were snacks by rules legalic.

The POTUS tightened up his tie and stiffly smoothed his jacket.
The SCOTUS smoothed her robes and fluffed her formal lacy jabot!
Twas plain to see the two had reached a stalement in discussion
When in walked Cat and put a end to all of their percussion.

The Cat said "all you say" said he "does matter not to me".
For *I* am Cat and *I'll* decide what tastes so goodily!
He sniffed the treats and walked away. "It does not meet my standard".
"It smells like cow, which I don't like now. I will not be pandered".

The POTUS and the SCOTUS stared at each other stunned.
Said he, "But I'm POTUS"; and she "But I'm SCOTUS".
We're the Best around, so how could we be wrong?
And the Cat got up and slowly walked away...

Your human has awesome action figures... and you do need a bed for that radiator!

Megan said...

I'm afraid that I have no idea who those action figures represent. I infer from Mark's Mews' poetry that they are politicians?

As for the failure by the Human to anticipate your requirements: Off with her head, I say!

Lone Star Cats said...

MOLing over the action figures.

And yeah, ya definitely needed a beddie there.

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

I don't know who the figures are either but TBT wrote a great poem about them.
I agree, you need a nice plush blankie in your new warm nap spot.

Brian said...

Maybe those action figures are discussing how to get you a bed there Spitty!

Eastside Cats said...

Bravo to Mark's Mews!!!!
Encore encore!
*clap clap clap*

Marks Mews gets high marks for FABULOSITY! I recognize Ruth Ginsburg but not sure about the gentleman - is he choking himself? Is he waiting for Ruth to do a Heimlich with her gavel on his back? What's up? Oh yes - the most important issue of course is you and your lack of bedding facilities by the radiator. I am SURE your Human could put a bed or snuggy blankie or SOMETHING there so your Royal Highness isn't lying on BARE FLOOR!

Hugs, Teddy

catladymac said...

I recognize RBG - is the guy RKelly ?

Yes to a towel fresh from the dryer by the radiator !

pilch92 said...

She definitely needs to get you a bed for that spot. XO

The Island Cats said...

There needs to be a Spitty action figure included in there. :)

Kitties Blue said...

We are too late to post a story, and who knew Ruth B.G. has an action figure. Absolutely love it. Hopefully a bed has now appeared in front of that radiator. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer
