WomanCat Wednesday

Ode to Callie
Artsy Catsy's 18-year-old grande dame matriarch

When I am an old womancat
I shall sleep in a tie-dyed bed

And tell Fracas and Rocky where to go
When they don't suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on Temptations and tuna
And see Chey as our first woman president.

I shall lie down for beauty sleep whenever I'm tired
Which is 20 hours a day
And gobble up yogurt whenever I want.

And I shall indulge in youthful night crazies
And go outside whenever I please
And pee on the flowers in other people's gardens
And learn how to spit and hiss

When I am an old womancat in a tie-dyed bed.

Fabulous, Callie! 18 years is a long life! We hope you have many more to come.

Daisy said...

Callie, I want to be just like you when I turn 18!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I shall join you in your old woman cat pursuits--at least in spirit. I am not quite up to going out whenever I please any longer.

Georgia.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

P.S. Are you sure you want to see Cheysuli as president? While she can be very considerate, she is a bit bossy. In fact, sometimes she swats me as I go down my stairs to the bed and makes me fall.

Georgia, I can't go outside whenever I please either. I used to when I was a girlcat and lived in a safer neighborhood. But an old womancat cat dream ....

Callie

Tyler said...

OH Calli, I love reading about you. It's wonderful to see you resting in the bed. On a different topic, I see the picture of you giving Fracas his "background check" and I want to laugh.

Callie, you've got the right idea!

Callie - my Calico sisters, Puff and Powder are going to be 10 years old on April Fool's day - they look up to you as a beautiful role model.
You go girl, you should be allowed to do anything, anytime, anywhere!
Smooches to you - and all of my respect!
