Everyone Can be a Poet

Dean Koontz, a prolific writer whose books are typically read by adults, collaborated with Trixie Koontz (Dean's faithful companion also identified as a Golden Retriever) and illustrator Janet Cleland, to pen I,Trixie Who is Dog.  The opening of the tale, written in verse, is a perfect reminder that APRIL  is still National Poetry Month.
Dog is the best of the best things to be.
Sorry you are not dog.
Not everyone can be.
I decided to use Dean and Trixie's style to craft a cat's retort
Cat is the perfect creature - true
Want to see a  flawless feline?
Look at me, not you!

The Puppy Made off with My Slippers

by Jack Perleutsky
The puppy made off with my slippers
and buried them both in the yard.
I now grow remarkable shoe trees-
it isn't especially hard.
(From A Pizza the size of the Sun )
Happy National Poetry Month!

Bunnies for Kitties!

A crafty family left a gift for the shelter cats.   Eggs.  Or Bunnies.  Or Egg-bunnies, Bunny-eggs.   They wobble, make a sound (filled with beans or cat crunchies) and tickle your nose. Now, officially cat-tested at WARL. Thank you holiday elves.

Four Years in a Row!

 The local 4-H group stopped by on Sunday armed with a variety of donations -- food, treats, toys and cat litter, plus a money jar filled with cash  The Takoma Park group's annual spring drive for WARL started out as a chapter effort in 2012 and has blossomed into full-blown community event.   The members are getting older and taller and their collections are getting, bigger too!   Thanks 4-H friends!
