    dotsNobody and the Feral Catdots
    -------------------------------------------


    A tale of mousery most profound
    from this a lesson learned
    Rodent sees, and rodent does
    but isn't quite concerned

    A special little runt
    whose name would give you pause
    They called him “Nobody”
    for slightedness with paws

    Steal the cheese across the traps
    he did so with great ease
    Passed it all on to his kin
    for he needed to appease

    One would think he knew
    his luck would soon run out
    Steel with wooden slat
    caught and snapped to rot

    “Nobody can catch me!”,
    amused by his stealth and wit
    “I am the best at this – you know.”,
    and he gave no other thought to it

    But a wise old cat had heard
    of the little flash
    “A meal of mouse.” he thought
    “Much better than the trash.”

    And so one rainy day
    Mouse and cat did cross
    As Nobody was pilfering
    he found the feline’s doss

    “Who has found my abode?”,
    said a voice with sly of tone
    “I’m not really one for guests,
    but you're welcome in my home.”

    “Nobody is my name.
    I’m just a tiny tyke.
    No one special really,
    but I’m easily to like.”

    “Oh, I can see you’re small,
    but I care not anyway.
    Small is fine by me,
    all the better on this day.”

    So the wild puss strode in
    and lone Nobody stood tall
    The deluge outside swelled
    spilling in and down the walls

    “Fear not my furry friend,
    I have a task for you.
    I need your clever speed
    to gather something blue.”

    “Something blue?
    Of what is this you speak?
    I am nimble and quite quick,
    but tell me what I seek.”

    “Oh pish posh,
    you must be blind!
    You can’t get it,
    so never mind.”

    The cat had turned away,
    but Nobody gave chase
    “Please tell me, dear sir.
    Forgive me for my haste.”

    “Well, I see that you’re sincere
    so take a look just over there.”
    And upon a pad and spring
    lay some roquefort at the stairs.

    “Oh my, my, my...
    ...to see this gives me pleasure
    But tell me feral one,
    do I owe you for this treasure?”

    “Well, Nobody, you see
    up the stairs I cannot go.
    The bait is set and I am old;
    I can’t jump passed you know.”

    The smell of cheese and the cat’s lament
    gave Nobody his ready
    Geared to go with pairs of paws
    he stood there fast and steady.

    “Just wait, just wait!
    Let me cushion out your fall.
    You’re doing this for me.
    Let me help you after all.”

    To the side of the snare he went
    to face the charging vermin
    Nobody began to run
    he’d swipe the cheese for certain

    But stormy days bring wetness
    and his balance thus did spin
    He skittered passed the clapper
    into a toothy grin

    “Ah but yes, he missed it!”,
    said the chomping beastie
    As he slurped and swallowed
    “This one tasted cheesy!”

    “And I must really say,
    a nap has given pull.
    Since nobody I’ve eaten,
    how could I be this full?"

    And up the stairs he went
    to rest after his snack
    Here ends the tale of Nobody
    who wasn't very sprack

    So beware of falling rain
    it tends to makes things slide
    And be wary of those friends
    who seem a tad bit snide

      This was such a cute tale, it reminded me a lot of the Aesop Fables I used to read as a child. Very well written with a good moral.

      Extremely clever. This made me want to continue to read through to the end. Many parts forced a smile and a pause. Visuals of Tom and Jerry at parts.
