Journalist Jack here serving today as research assistant to Mom.


Here I am diligently going through the reference books Mom used for her blog post today (here). I advised her to feature the book next to me called Surprise in the Tree by Sara Asheron since the subject is cats. However, there were a few rhymes I enjoyed in the Mother Goose book (which has great smells by the way, since it’s as old as Mom so has been around a LOT of years). Here’s the one Buffy Cat and I thought superior to all the others:

I love little pussy,

Her coat is so warm,

And if I don’t hurt her,

She’ll do me no harm.

So I’ll not pull her tail,

Nor drive her away,

But pussy and I

Very gently will play.

I’m thinking of framing that and placing it above the door so guests will take note…

Happy Black and White Sunday!
