Trying the Collective Noun Meme

The lovely Daisy tagged me for the Collective Noun Meme. At first I was worried that I wouldn't be able to do this ... but then I decided that I'd give it a try ... and make it rhyme ... so here goes:

A family of friends
and a bellyful of blogs
make a cast of cats
(and a department of dogs!)
A tribe of tabbies
and a wealth of the white
we're a posse of pussycats
we're a mob of might!
we're a bevy of beauties
a collection of the kitty
we're a mess o' "mancats"
we're a wealth of the witty.

Marilyn ... you are so clever! I did my best.

Oh ...

A pounce of cats playing with a catnip mousie ... a litter of cats rolling in the box ... a clutter of cats rearranging the papers on the computer table ... a nuisance of cats waking moms up at 4:30 am for breakfast.

You did wonderfully in with the meme, Mickey! I am very impressed.

Marilyn MonREOW said...

My darling Mickeybear,

Wow, I am floored -- you did a brilliant job with the meme, my precious, poetic mancat! Your combination of masterful wordsmithery and wit is irresistible -- makes me *swoon* every time, my dearest.

And oh, I am *purrrrrring* at that precious picture of you, my handsome Bear -- and the picture of me in the background is like I am looking lovingly at you, as I do every day, in life and in my dreams. *smile*

Worlds of love and floofy-poofy snuggly whisker-kisses from Your Kittypie!

Daisy said...

Mickey, you done great! I can't believe you made it into a poem, you are so talented. A bellyful of blogs, heehee.

My darling Mickeybear,

How neat that you signed Mike's guestbook! He's a fun fluffhead kitty -- you and your brothers and sister will have fun with him, I'm sure!

*giggle*, I am loving the Simon Says Challenge over on PWKC! All the pictures are just precious. *smile*

Much love, whisker-kisses, and poofy-floofy snuggles from Your Kittypie!

You did that collective noun thingy really well. I've been tagged, too, but I've been a little busy with my beans rearranging things and being Mike's travel agentress. I promised Marliyn I'd get to it soon. Anyway, you made it look easy.

You certainly may have Mike come for a visit. It'll be awhile. You are now number 6 on the list. He's usually gone about a week. So I'll notify you when it gets close to New York.

Hi Mickey,

I think you did great and the poem was amazing :)

You did *great! I hope nocat tags me for this one, because I'd never think of such good collective nouns!
