Tiny Tornado

Tika Marika Thunderpaws
Was tearing  ‘round the house,
Tika Pasqueaka Thunderpaws
Was batting a cap nip mouse

Thud, thunk, tumbling down
You should see her hit home base
Sliding here, careening there
At her hyperactive pace

Tika Marika Fat-Cat
Was fluffy as can be
Running here, running  there
Chasing after me

Behind the couch
Upon the sill
Faster and faster
Running still

She trounced that mouse
And ditched me too
Like it was really
Easy to do

Tika Marika Thunderpaws
Where, oh where would we be
Without the fluffy Fat-Cat
Whirlwind  for us to see.

Yes, and she still does. She's almost 6 and is our highest "jumper" when we get out the cat "fishing pole". thanks Vonnie for coming by!
