Wild Words and Feral Tamed.

For GloPoWriMo Day 16 I am ignoring the prompt, and instead am taking  Wordle 399 as the rhyme of the day. Brenda has done the usual fiendish job of steering one inexorably in a certain direction with the choice of words, but then throwing in one or two that refuse to fit. I have done my best with them. With our collection of ferals, I should have been able to succeed somehow!

Our latest feral posed obligingly for all of half a second.





Worms in stool of feral cat
In our car boot we had trapped;
Birds endangered, and so that
Bait with sugar words enwrapped,
Brought to mansion; now on maple floor,
Off hook: vetted, tamed, and waits at door.

  5. Great job on the word use. Like the cat. Give him time.


  6. That looks like our cat. He started life the kitten of a feral mom. We got him at 3 months old and he was crazy. Now at 5 years old he sits on my lap for hours and is super friendly. I learned he is a Bombay from a list of the top ten friendliest cat breeds.

    Oh, and I like the poem, too. Good job with a strange set of words.

    It is great that you were able to help the cat. Sounds and looks like a really nice one.
