Cat Lady No. 324...Thanksgiving Eve Poetry Reading

Cat Lady Megan thought that for tonight's poetry reading it would be appropriate to recite "Bustopher Jones: the Cat About Town", one of T.S. Eliot's fabulous felines in Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats:

An exerpt:
It can be no surprise that under our eyes
He has grown unmistakably round.
He's a twenty-five pounder, or I am a bounder,
And he's putting on weight every day:
But he's so well preserved because he's observed
All his life a routine, so he'll say.
Or, to put it in rhyme: "I shall last out my time"
Is the word of this stoutest of Cats.
It must and it shall be Spring in Pall Mall
While Bustopher Jones wears white spats!

Pumpkin doesn't like to think of himself as a cat about town, as he would prefer to find a patch of sunshine in the front window and nap rather than gad about, but he does like the idea of a pair of spats...make that TWO pair!

Thanks for visiting!
