A Catty Mess (Limerick)

A Catty Mess (Limerick)

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Written for my best friend on her birthday :D

"



There was once a girl in the US,
who lived with a hundred cats, no less.
When she turned twenty-five, 
she went for a test-drive
and it turned-out to be a real mess...!

As soon as I saw the title, I knew I had to click! *smile* Never disappointed! This one could be interpreted in a number of ways. Since you use such a picture to illustrate, the first thing that comes to mind when you write "test drive" is something I've experienced when trying to get amorous when I used to have a very possessive dog. But then I also think about the literal meaning of "test drive" & I see a blood-splattered driveway . . . I love playful macabre writing (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Hahahaha this could be me when I turn 25(in 3 years!!). Well I've got the love for cats, and the slightly introvert streak to go with it. I think i check all the boxes for a future crazy cat lady! 😂

Thank you so much for liking. Glad you appreciate :)
Watch a cat stalking a stray autumn leaf and it reminds you of where they come from.

I don't have a cat, but I do admire their independent nature.

Thank you for reading :)
Love these fun writes from you. I was very fond of limericks as a child, and it is lovely to see someone writing them again. Thank you Dr Y. Fond regards

Thank you so much for appreciating this one, Saree! Glad you like it 😊

You are getting better and better at this limerick game my luvverly friend but just one word of caution... if you get any more adept, you might inadvertently find yourself caught up in a 'cats 22' situation and pullin more than just teeth, but poetic admirers too.............. N

Today is "Clear the Shelters" day here in California, where all adoption fees are waived in attempt to find homes for the homeless. I'm up to three cats so far...but that might change!

It sounds to me like your friend's heart is definitely in the right place. I've never attempted writing a limerick, but I love this one!

I once read this limerick, (English),
It made me feel all over tinglish;
Oh, if I'd never known
How things get overblown,
I never would have read the thinglish.
