Paint it Black
♫I see a red cat and I want it painted blackNo cats any more, I want them to turn blackI see the cats walk by, dressed in their summer clothesI have to turn my head until my kitties goes♫♫I see a chair of cats and they’re all painted blackWith kitties and my love both never to come backI see people turn their heads and quickly look awayLike a newborn kittens, it just happens every day♫

Professor Bean Riddle #3
“OH My GOD! Yesterday’s question was tougher than I thought. The answer was charcoal. As in, you use it for B.B.Q.’ing”. 
“Now for a hard one;
A woman shoots her husband. Then she holds him under water for over 5 minutes. Finally, she hangs him. But 5 minutes later they both go out together and enjoy a wonderful dinner together. How can this be?”

“Good luck and we’ll see you tomorrow.”

The Reformation of Jasper McRedfur
 
Annabelle Whiskers was a champion mouser,
She could spot them within a mile.
She was stealthy and graceful and did not leave a mess,
The townsfolk prized her style.
 
Then Jasper McRedfur appeared one day,
He arrived by train in the night.
He was muscled and fearsome and led a posse of rats,
Indeed an ominous sight.
 
Jasper McRedfur led his rats into town,
He found a barn with a large store of grain.
He demolished the cream and the butter and milk,
As outside it began to rain.
 
A great flash of lightning at the open barn door,
A vision of glistening rage.
Like an avenging angel Annabelle Whiskers stepped in,
Producing a golden cage.
 
Jasper McRedfur stood ready and bristled,
The rats cowered tightly behind.
He marvelled at the beauty in her blazing green eyes,
Her purr now silky and kind.
 
Annabelle Whiskers placed a paw on his head,
“I will spare your pets’ and your life.
There is no need for battle, friend, no need for fear.
And clearly you need a wife!”
 
Jasper McRedfur was instantly moved,
By a love never met before.
He kissed her sweet paws, led the rats to the cage,
And together they went out the door.
 
Jasper and Annabelle now work as a team,
There are no two happier cats.
They keep the town free of all insidious rodents,
But take good care of their rats.

Cats of Narnia – Springtime

Aslan! Look the snow is melting!” “Yes, Jardis the White Witch is truly dead.”

Anonymous asked: Did you ever name your cat / what did you end up picking? :)

Hi. Yes in fact we did. The Kitten is now called Mille Feuille. Or Millie for short. It’s a French pastry, so the name works in a number ways. Firstly, since we moved to Quebec, Canada, a predominantly French area, that fits. Millie is blonde and fluffy, like the pastry and she’s sweet!

It was a fun contest. We got over 1,000 suggestions, however the rest of the kittens, we didn’t spend as much effort. The rest are Hairy Potter, (I’m sure you’ve seen), Truffle, Creme Brulee, Spike and Sphinx.

Thanks for your question and enjoying Cats at the Bar.

What is black when you buy it, red when you use it, and gray when you throw it away?

The Fate of The Dozen
Egg number one was fried, Number two went into a cake, Number three - poached on toast, And number four, into a breakfast shake.
Egg number five was coddled, Six thickened the Hollandaise, Egg number seven was scrambled, And number eight topped with mayonnaise.
Egg number nine was the cat’s, Number ten appeased the dog’s plea, Eleven was lent to the neighbour, Number twelve awaited destiny…
On a brisk, sunny Spring morning, I placed before me a rainbow of dyes, Then with great care and love number twelve was transformed, Into my daughter’s Easter surprise!

O Egg
So white, so clean,So pure, pristine,Inspiring a gleeful desire to break.
To fry, to scramble,Or with much preamble,To bake a magnificent cake.
To coddle, to boil,Or even to toil,Over a delicate, fluffly soufflee…
No, the best is to dye,With a gleam in the eye,For the bunny is on its way!
