My Cat Has Gone To Limerick



~ Warning ~

This is too highbrow for you lot

As it’s poetry.Β  Writing it’s definitely not.

So you are quite free

To go sit in a tree

Or go fall asleep in your cot.


~ Two of the greatest Poet Laureates Lorry Cats ~

Kitty Krumble


Kitty Krumble she drove a big truck.

The chicken she hit had no luck

As it crossed the street,

Got thrown off its feet.

Now Kitty’s truck horn goes “cluck” !


Monster Moggy


A tabby became Monster Moggy

Because he was so rampantly snoggy.

For at night, at nine

He drank glasses of wine

And ravished the neighbour’s big doggy.


~ Sonic wants to have a go ~

Sonic (Poet Cat)


I am a black cat named Sonic.

I’m Daddy’s most favourite tonic.

When he is at rest

I do try my best

To bring up a fur ball.Β  He goes manic !


~ Sonic and Miss Limerick ~

Sonic is unhappy with me.


Daddy borrowed some pictures from Google.

Miss Limerick he did love to oogle.


He constantly harps on


About women all day long.

He’s acts like a canoogling pup poogle.


~ Ralph’s attempt at poetry ~

Hah !Β  I suggest you read this with your eyes closed πŸ˜€


There’s no reason for me to give up smoking

For this warning they give, must be joking.

As it’s easy to see

I’ve had a vasectomy

Which is worse for the swimmers.Β Β  They’re not yolking !


Was this post too highbrow for you ? Β  If it was, did you sleep well ?



Ralph xox ❀


❀ ~ And finally, for you, only you ~ ❀

My love for you will never die.

My heart sings songs that truly fly,

Circling, spinning,

Through you, winning.

A chord to cuddle you, from I.

  1. Not bad poetry, Ralph. – But that woman swing around on the hand rail of an escalator – truly amazing! Have a good one, Ralph!

  2. Yes, bravo RA!
    I was out one day in the muck
    When from nowhere came this truck
    I stuck out my hand
    To catch a ride with the band
    But all I heard was a “CLUCK”

    • What a lovely comment. Thank you so much Diana.
      The Urban Dictionary says >>>>
      A derivative of the English word snog meaning to kiss; this particular version is reserved for when one is in the drunken state and becomes quite amorous.

  4. Yes, your post was too highbrow!
    The cats are over educated, and I’m having a hard time keeping up with all the poetry!
    Ahem… Erm!
    There once was a fellow named Ralph,
    Who usually kept to himself.
    He then met a lady
    Who was quite unsavory
    He said…. mind your own business.

    See! Can’t write a poem to save my Ralph!

      • Hey, Ralph. I went onto your blog yesterday, after getting so behind with everyone on WP because I’ve been away so much lately. We hardly seem to have been home this summer. Anyway, I was surprised to find that you hadn’t posted anything in October. Is that right, or was I looking in the wrong place? I just hoped you were OK and not ill. From your ‘train’ post, it seems the acupuncture is still going well. πŸ™‚

  22. I ‘think’ I read a post of your sometime back that said you didn’t have the time or inclination to follow everyone back or even comment on our comments. That’s okay but forgive me if I can’t help but read your blogs. I so love your cats and the silly antics you put them into and your whole outlook on life helps me keep sunny on some of my dark days. You are a blessing and it doesn’t matter if you follow me as most of my blogs are rather ‘heavy’ and couldn’t do you a bit of good. Who cares about the state of affairs in the US when you have such delightful furry friends. Sheri
