Limerick Day

Stinky sat by the teleportation tunnel, fidgeting with impatience. As always, he was so exited that he’d be spending the day with Periwinkle.

He wasn’t sure how she’d feel about his plans for an “adventure”, but with events cancelled and attractions closed, it was becoming more and more difficult to find things to do.

While he was pondering this, Periwinkle came tumbling out of the tunnel. She stuck her landing, threw her paws in the air, and meowed, “Ta da!” Stinky was still laughing when she grabbed him in a big hug.

“So what’s the plan for today, Stinky?” Periwinkle asked.

Stinky replied, “I hope you don’t mind, but we are staying home again today. With everything still closed here and the fact that I had a seizure last night, my mom thinks we should stay here.”

“Oh, Stinky, I am so sorry you had one of those nasty seizures, but I never mind staying at home, as long as I’m with you,” Periwinkle told him. She continued, “So, what are we going to do?”

Stinky explained to Periwinkle they were going to write limericks.

“What are limericks?” Periwinkle asked.

They’re a type of poem. I have the instructions on how to write one, said Stinky.



“My mom writes poems, but I have never tried writing one. You go first while I review these rules,” replied Periwinkle.

“Okay Periwinkle, here are the instructions. You can go over them while I write my first limerick.

There once was a cat named Mau,
who was super fond of his chow.
His chops he wasn’t licken’
when his bowl had chicken,
‘cause the only food he liked was cow.



“Stinky, that is so hysterical.” As she continued to laugh, Periwinkle said, “Okay, I see how it is done. My turn now.”

Allie was a cat of great beauty.
Looking nice she saw as a duty,
but one day she fell in the mud
After going outside in a flood.
Now she has a dirty patootie.

“Oh, Periwinkle, I hope Allie doesn’t get mad when she sees that.”

“She’s got a good sense of humor. I’m sure she’ll laugh.”

After that, Periwinkle and Stinky continued to take turns writing limericks.


Astrid once took a ride on a boat
that had holes and wouldn’t float.
When her paws touched water
she meowed, “Oh bother,”
and arrived home with a sore throat.


Noelle loves to sleep on the bed.
On a pillow she rests her head
until Raz takes a pounce,
gives her a giant bounce,
And she yells, “Raz, you’re a huge blockhead.”


Cooper was a prince of a cat.
He wore a crown instead of a hat.
When it became dented,
He stamped his paws and vented,
“This crown’s not fit for a dead rat.”


There once was a man cat named Raz,
who thought he was filled with pizazz.
Then he tried a minuet
with the cat Lisbeth
and realized he’s a great big spaz.



When the tabbies stubbed giggling, Periwinkle asked, “So that was fun, Stinky. Can we get some lunch?”

“Sure, let’s get my mom to make us some Fancy Feast and Temptations. After that I have a friend for you to meet.”

“Cool, is it another groundhog?”

“Nope, you’ll just need to wait and see!”

The tabbies enjoyed their lunch on the catio while visiting with the other Kitties Blue. Then Stinky took Periwinkle’s paw and led her to the backyard.



“Oh Stinky, what a cute bunny. Does he live with you?” asked Periwinkle.

“No, he just stops by our yard occasionally, but he really wanted to meet you.”

“Hi, Mr. Bunny, nice to meet you,” said Periwinkle.

After a short visit, it was time for Periwinkle to head home. The tabbies hugged for a long time and shared several whisker kisses before Periwinkle entered her tunnel and was gone.

Stinky sulked for a while then decided to take nap, so he could dream of the beautiful and sweet Periwinkle.

The End

Very creative limericks. I wish we had bunnies here. They’re adorable as long as they don’t eat too many of your plants.

What a fun thing to do when you have to stay in. I don’t like the seizure part, but everything else is purrfect. Even a bunny visited.

Have a purrfect day. My best to your siblings and your wonderful mom. ♥

What fun limericks, kitties!
I’ve never tried to write one, but I have written some haikus, which are a different thing, but still a poem.

We are sending Purrs for Stinky and hope those Seizures go away for spring. When it gets here.
Those Limericks were super and we are going to try some of them to pass the time. Stay safe friends and we will see you soon.

Awww, that was fun poking fun at all your furblings by writing those cute limericks! Petcretary says I could write some doozies about the two hooligans who live where, MOL!

Sorry that Stinky…(Sawyer), had yet another seizure…we are purring and pawyering for him to have no more…or at least a lot fewer of them.

Hope you might soon have an out of the den catventure! When things open up again.

Meows, purrs, hugs and MOLs are greatly appreciated. Please no hissing, spitting or scratching unless you want one of us to whap you!
