Did I ever tell you how lucky I am?
I'm the luckiest cat there could ever be

We thank Zoey's Mom, Ann, for this adorable button 
and verse.

We thank Amber  and Zoey for inviting us to join 
in this fun Dr. Seuss Challenge Day. 


The challenge is to write a 
poem that would make Dr. Seuss smile.  Today Dr Seuss is 108.
Mom and I both wrote a poem in honor of this great day

Thanks for visiting us today.

Now for a true funny story.
Mom told me when my nemesis human sister
was five they packed up the car for a road trip to  Disney World.  Mom had all kinds of entertainment for my nemesis human sister BUT the only thing she wanted to do was read all the Dr. Seuss books, she especially liked Hop on Pop and  Green Eggs and Ham. In between reading books, my nemesis  my sis would ask...'where is the door to Florida'? About the happiest Mom was on that trip was when she saw the "Welcome to Florida" aka the door to Florida. Mom says it took her years to get Dr. Seuss' words out of her head.
Since hearing this story, I have a new found 
love for my human sister.  WTG  pulling a fast one on the Mom!!

  2. HaHaMeow! Great story, Madi. Our Mommy can still recite a great deal of Mr Brown Can Moo, Can You? The human sis wore that book out. We wrote a poem, but part of it's inappropriate. (Mom's on Benadryl tonight - LOL) xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
