Saturday da 13th

Hai, furriends!

   Mom sez we had a 'narrow furrscape' frum haffin a Furriday da 13th.  What is it wif dees beans an 13?  Iz a number.  Der are lotsa numbers da beans use.  13 iz a purrfeckly good one.  13 treats iz better than 10 or 12 treats.  13 scritches is better than 12 or none!  Mai goodness, such silliness.  An da beans call us silly kittehs!  Meowf!

  Anyways... mom haz a lim-er-ick she wrote about our sisfur, Sootsie.  After Soot went to da bridge, mom changed it into a memorial piece.  We will move offur, an let her write it herself:

"Soot was a very nice cat
Who wore a soft coat, velvet black.
Pet her, she'd purr
As you stroked her fur.
And add a cute tail to all that."

We finks dat is furry nice.  Iz a furry good description of Sootsie.  She wuz all black, wif no odder colors anywhere, an she had a furry short little tail.  It wuz so short, she couldn't swish it around,  We still misses her, an mom's eyes still leak when she finks of how young she was and how she went to da bridge too soon.  Even dad's eyes leak when he finks about it.  We fink Sootsie wuz hiz fafurrite kitteh.  She went to da bridge on Octofur 15, 2008, only 4-1/2 years old.

See--more numbers.  Evfurrything wif da beans is numbers.  We no cares what da number iz, as long as dey remember da number of times a day we git fed, an petted, an played wif an brushed an our boxes scooped. Those are da only impawtent numbers!

That is a very nice limerick. I'm so sorry that Soot had to go to Bridge so soon, but until you see her again, this sure is a wonderful way to remember her.
