The pond is still attracting cats
When they’re not nesting like two birds
As pair o’ kits; but do note that’s
Not parakeets: quite different word.
Budgerigars are parakeets;
A fact till now I didn’t know
The budgies that each kitten greets
May give the flow with which they go?
The twin kittens are named Amber and Pearl by the grandgirls, and our sibling (we think) Maltese rescues are Gemma and Nigel (yes, Gem ‘n’ Ni for The Twins). That reminds me of ‘Naming Unexpected Twin’ jokes:
Pete and Re-pete
Kate and Dupli-kate or Repli-kate
Anne and Ann-other
Sam and Sam-more or Sam-one-else
You would also get Juan and Juan-more, or Juan and Two, or Juan and Juan Too (Juan being pronounced ‘Wan’.
Similarly, as an English/Afrikaans joke you could get Ian and Twee (een, twee = one, two) or Ian and Nog-een (another one) or Ian and Een-meer (one more).
Can you think of others?
