Tucked in a Box Tuesday

snooze... snooze... snooze (beautiful dreams of Mickeybear)

Hmmmmmm *blink, blink*? Mom, you called?

Dozing on green fleece
Snug in my cardboard castle
Is that Mickey's step?

I play peek-a-boo
And snatch a purr from my dream
Oh, can he be here?

Did he wake with me
And travel to Tennessee
From his New York home?

He's back in my dream
Not in my cardboard castle
Those footfalls were Mom's.

She takes my picture
I smile, blink, and purr-purr-purr...
Soon I'll sleep again.

As I drift away
Cardboard becomes white marble
And I'm with my Bear.


My siblings and I posted our entries for the Red Carpet Buzz contest -- go check it out! Everykitty/everywoofie who has posted looks so glamorous... the humans at the Oscars will look like frumps by comparison.

If you had your eyes closed (yes these famous eyes) it could be Arthur in the box, lol ! I like the poeme !

PS I am more and more convinced that real white cats have a special character, they are not like the others. Unfortunately they also attract flees more than other cats (I have been told by the vet) and to prevent a flee invasion in Arthur's fur I have to put every six weeks a special medication in form of a little tube on his neck behind !
