Tuesday Haikusday: Niles (and A Video)

I haven’t done haiku in a while. I’ve decided today is the day. Join me as I wax poetic on Niles, my elder brother. Eh hem…

Darkly stealthy, cool

Slinking about in the night

I know you are there.

.

Sleek, panther-like gait

As your tongue rasps through your fur

You stop and listen.

.

Nineteen Ninety Nine

Sixteen years resting your head

On MomFOD’s shoulder.

Niles finally got a chance to star, really star, in a CATastrophes film. It seems to be a runaway hit. Please enjoy Niles in ” What Your Senior Cat Might Be Thinking.

 

Love,

Crepes.

Bachelorette of the Week: Adelaide!

Come one, come all to the meeting of Adelaide!

The one, the only: Adelaide.

The one, the only: Adelaide.

Ms. Adelaide Rosenburg is a bit of everything: a bit of tortie, a bit of tabby, a bit of calico. She’s what’s known as a torbie, a true lady of many cultures. Adelaide joined the team at Tabby’s Place just this summer after wandering for a bit in the outside world. Now in her senior years, Adelaide is looking to settle down in a home with a lot of cats to love and people to snuggle. Her attitude is one of joy and positivity, and so is her FIV status. But she doesn’t care, because she’s just a happy, happy girl.

Some might think that Addy, as she’s called by her friends, should have a lot to complain about, but Addy doesn’t think so, and that’s what really matters. She has had some problems with inflammation that went untreated during her years outside, and that caused her a severe case of stomatitis, which she’s currently conversing with politely. I say “conversing” rather than “struggling” because it seems that Addy’s attitude doesn’t allow her to be rude to anything, even a painful condition that required the removal of most of her teeth.

If you would like to meet this little five-pound bundle of joy, contact Tabby’s Place today. If you’d like to donate to her care, you can do so here and be certain of the fact that she’s dancing to a soft little tune in her head, and making biscuits for you, her sponsor. She never runs out of biscuits. She’s just great like that.

I have no teeth? That's ok, I didn't need them anyway.

“I have no teeth? That’s ok. I don’t need teeth to smile.” – Addy.

"Oh, is that a spot on your lap? Can I make biscuits there?" - Addy.

“Oh, is that a spot on your lap? Can I make biscuits there?” – Addy.

Lovely photos provided by Tabby’s Place.

Love,

Crepes.

Bachelorette of the Week: Tabitha!

You Guys!

I know you’re excited that I’m about to announce this week’s Bachelorette, but please hold your applause because she might run away. Instead, burst with joy inwardly. Also, whisper. And, um, leave the kids at home.

May I gently present to you… TABITHA!

HURRAY! Shhhh...

HURRAY! Shhhh…

::insert silent screams of elation here:::

Tabitha grew up in an alley, but not a cool Alley like the kids in Chicago here visit to buy leather jackets. It was a mean alley, filled with garbage cans and things kitties don’t want on their fur. At six months of age, this lovely lady was rescued, but she remains steadfast in her survival skills. She loves to be petted, but gently, with a soothing voice.

HOWEVER: She LOVES other cats!  Do you have a kitty who you feel needs a companion? Then Tabitha is your lady! Think about it: a bit of wet food, you, Tabitha, a gentle CD of relaxing music, and your other kitty, all enjoying an evening of petting (slowly) and love (quietly.)

What do you think? Does she fit your needs? Great! Then call Save a Pet IL today and get this senior lady into your home ASAP, but slowly. Very slowly.

Tabitha feels NOTHING for flowers. Nothing.

Tabitha feels NOTHING for flowers. Nothing.

She can see you...but she doesn't want to hear you, Capisce?

She can see you…but she doesn’t want to hear you, Capisce?

Always let sleeping Tabitha's lie.

Always let sleeping Tabithas lie.

Love,

Crepes.
