Collective Noun Meme

It's a sleepy day for me. I'm still enjoying my basket, but I've also been snoozing on the purr pad on the perch by the window. Nice and cozy!

Mom? You called? Want a raspberry? *giggle*!

Oh, how fun -- my darling Mickeybear and I have both been tagged by our dear friend Daisy for the Collective Noun Meme! She called us a Trance of lovers. Isn't that purrfectly lovely!

This meme is free-form and free-spirited, so freed from form and filled with spirit, I'll turn this meme into a poem of sorts...

A primrose of poems
In a bliss of books...
A comfort of couples
In a nestle of nooks.
Tangles of tummies
A flash of floof,
Luxury of loves:
Triumph of truths...

A cuddle of cats.

Collective nouns for groups of cats:

A Fuzzle of Ballicai lie resting abed,
A Wonder of Whitesters cavort in my head.
A Spice of Siamese is oh-so-mischievous;
An Homage of House Panthers is oh-so-mysterious.
A Marvel of Marmalades look like Brainball,
A Succor of Siblings catch me when I fall.
A Fondness of Friends, so fun and so fine,
Makes a Glee of Girlcats' lives so divine.

And I tag my precious sister-friends Miss Peachy (for when she gets back, *smile*) and Gretchen.

Mom will be using my computer to catch up on work for the next couple of days, but I will still be visiting blogs this weekend, and my next post will be for Monday. Happy Weekend and much love to everykitty!

And love and whisker-kisses and floofy-poofy snuggles to my darling mancat Mickeybear *purrrrrr*.

Marilyn, you look so cute in those pictures! I also like the pictures of you in your new basket - it is very nice!

Thank you so much for the Sweet Award, I really appreciate it.


Gretchen said...

You look so comfy on your purr pad in front of the window. It's raining cats and kitties tonight. Want some rain? I'll send you some!
The wind was really blowin' today, too.
Thanks for the noun thingy...I can hardly spell without the spell checker and now you want me to play with nouns? Just kidding. I'll work on it, maybe in a few days. My mom bean is going to destroy this computer room tomorrow. She got a new table and is going to kill herself trying to get things fixed the way she's wanted them since she moved in here. So if you don't hear from me in a week, you better send out a search party. I hope it doesn't take her a week to get things changed around.
I don't like change. Everytime I turn around, she's changed something. Maybe if I bite her ankle she'll get the hint to stop moving things around.

Warm, sweet hugs, to my best-sister-friend-cousin...G

I, too, thought this was a hard meme ... but when I read your response ... I was incredibly impressed.
Just to let you know ... my mom has been so busy, too. I always read what you have to say, though.
I'm looking forward to Monday!

It's nice to find a warm and cosy place when it's getting cold outside ! I love your two colored eyes !!

Oh, Marilyn, I'm so happy Mike is having a good time with you all. I knew he needed more than just me and my mom bean for company. We can get pretty dull sometimes.

Great big sistercat hugs...G
