Kitten, kittener, kittennest.


What sort of bird is in that nest?
It’s like that of a hadeda,
But ibis don’t have ears, so best
Of guesses is an owl, by far.


But, wait!  This owl greets with a mew,
And sports some whiskers, and long tail,
Owls doing that are very few …
Fact it is kitten must prevail!

Today, a problem at the pond,
One of the kits was catching fish,
And of that sport was growing fond …
How can I cure her of that wish?

    It’s okay to think you’re a bird – as long as you don’t try to FLY!!

    Well, fancy that, a cat that thinks it’s a bird?
    Now a bird that thinks it’s a cat, now that’s absurd!

    Don’t bother curing her. She womn’t be able to catch them anyway and after she has fallen in the pond a few times she will stop.

      She caught at least five guppies on her first try – at least, that was the number we restored to the water. Others may have been munched. And she is far too agile to fall into things. Houston, we have a problem …
