Day 12 of 13 Days of Halloween

Double, double toil and trouble

Why must you irk me so?

I give and I give,

and I give and I give,

but somehow you just want more!

Be it cookies, or food,

or leg room, or toys;

you just do whatever your stubborn heart desires.

I’ll stay right here,

in my corner of the couch,

ready for whatever transpires.

Whether it’s muddy paws, or incessant barking;

stealing new pillows, or tearing up boxes,

I’ll always love you Rosee.

And if he’s lucky,

I know you’ll consider letting Simon in on the fun;

but only maybe, just maybe.

 

On this, the eve of her sixth birthday, I solemnly swear to always give up my seat on the couch for you little girl. May you stay happy and smiley, and bullheaded and stubborn for the years to come. Happy birthday Rosee!

“Or perhaps in Slytherin
You’ll make your real friends,

Those cunning folks use any means
To achieve their ends.” 

From the Sorting Hat’s Song, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, pg. 118.

Last year at this time it was Rosee getting sorted into the House of Slytherin in the world of Harry Potter. This year?

It’s Shadow!

Shadow: the mischievous, cunning, stop-at-nothing-to-get-his-way, tabby cat. He climbs on top of everything throughout the house. He searches out any kind of food unwittingly left out on any countertop. He even does his best interpretation of a pathetic life-form with his beg trick.

Shadow Tricks

He makes messes; he tries to intimidate the other cats; he stops at nothing to feed the monster in his belly!

And yet his greatest trick? Stealing his humans’ hearts!

Happy soon-to-be Halloween!
