Geriatric Cats

This is Dancer's 4-H project under the area of cat education.  Both of our cats are getting up in years so she choose the topic of geriatric cats.  Our cats are five and eight years old, which is quite old for outdoor kitties.

As an aside, this title reminds me of the song Jellico Cats from the Broadway musical CATS and I have had two lines from that song in my head all day.  Might not be so bad if I knew all the lyrics.

She found a cute poem in one of the books she read about older cats and put it across the top of the poster.

Cats sleep anywhere, any table, any chair,
Top of piano, window ledge, to the middle, on the edge,
Open drawer, empty shoe
Anybody's lap will do,
Fitted to cardboard box, in the cupboard, with your frocks
They don't care!
Cats sleep anywhere.

Eleanor Farjeon (1881-1965)

T.S. Eliot was one of the first poets I liked. I still have my childhood copy of Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats.

Re your comment: With the new format, the word match only fit on the footer. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to find it. ;o)
