Of Mice and Mems!

Wow, our idol, Skeezix, tagged us for our first meme ever. What a special day this is! (In case you've wondered, yes...we really do live on this couch. Well, on our half, anyway. The laptop and the lap it lives on get the other half.)

We need to write our own proverb:

A proverb is a simple and concrete saying popularly known and repeated, which expresses a truth, based on common sense or the practical experience of catkind.

Using Skeezix's for inspiration:

A kyoot owtfit a day keeps the Fashun Police away.

...the very first one that came to our (Willie & Bianca's) minds is:

There are only twenty-four hours in a nap.

We asked Sadie for her contribution, and one of the things you probably don't know about her is that she is very spiritual. She wanted to share her favorite parable:

Morris 5:37,38

"No one puts new clean litter into dirty old litter boxes, or else the new litter will touch the poo poo parts, and it will be stinky, and the clean litter will be skanky.
But new litter must be put into clean litter boxes, and both are good. No cat having scratched new litter immediately desires old, for he says, ‘The new is better.’ "

We have to get back to napping so we let Sadie choose who we should tag. Do you notice a THEME?

Kelly Good Cat
Kellie the Orange Cat

Sadie! That is just an awesome meme you put together! I am very proud to know such a talented thinker! Morris is one cool Ginger cat (like me, orange that is:)
Tune in tomorrow cuz the dreamer lady will put up a picture just for you so you can see the stone she once made with odds and ends chippy stuff. I want her to make me a foody dish with broken China bits because I HELP BREAK them from time to time! Maybe you might try making food dishes for sale? I would think there is a very big market for kitty things and we all need very stylish foody dishes:))
I liked your baby photo...sweet!!
Well, I am off to have some coffee with the dreamer lady now and start my day. I am a night owl so I sleep real late into the day:)

Both proverb and parable were quite thoughtfully done! And the two of you look very cozy there on your side of the couch!

Jake said...

Thanks for picking me, you guys. That was fun!
PS Sadie was a hottie when she was young!
I loves her poofiness.
She's too old for me now, but if I had been born earlier...Does she have any daughters?

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Thank you for tagging me for a Meme, it looks like a challenging one and I will have to put lots of thought into it.

I so agree with your litter proverb, now if I can just come up with something as clever...... : )

Meowz Sadie! I figure that a good mancat if very hard to find...much less keep! Mind if I keep my eyes out for a suitable one for you too? Mine just found me! Maybe that might happen for you too!
So I get to do the proverb meme...COOL! Yours is just amazing...hope I can do half as well:)
My mosaic stone photo will be a bit late...Friday I think because I had to post my contest answers for Dragonheart in tomorrows.
