Z is for Zoo


Yes, my zoo!  There's no other way to describe it!
It's crazy and crowded and fun and certainly never boring!

And this concludes the A to Z Challenge!
It was more fun that I thought it would be and I met lots of new, great bloggers.
Hope you'll join us next April when we do it all over again!

  6. And I admit
    For the end of the A to Z bit
    I knew that is what you would chose
    For I didn't even need any clues
    As I use it all the time
    When I come here to rhyme
    And still crack up with marmy on the roof
    Acting like quite the goof
    For the A to Z has come due
    And you really truly absolutely have a zoo..haha

    1. I know! I just said you gave us that name
      and it stuck and has grown to some fame!
      It shouldn't be called by any other
      as zoo is just perfect for this mother.
      Yes, Marmy still does the neighborhood patrol
      he'll be up there when he's old!
      He's taken Grey and Charcoal up, too!
      I'm sure the neighbors think we're a bunch of loons!

    2. haha well at least you know their about
      Without even a shout
      As they pitter patter on the roof
      Like some goof
      Just need to teach them morse code
      Then you'll now whether person or toad
      Who is coming near
      And can give an oh dear

      Delete
    3. haha Maybe all nine could be up there at once
      and if a toad comes, they could all give a pounce
      landing on their head
      oh, that would cause dread
      but would be funny to see
      as I hid inside. tee hee.

      Delete
    4. hahaha all nine on the roof at the same time would bring you fame
      No crown wouldn't be needed after such a game
      They'd always know you as roof of cats
      Who scare away the rats
