Cucumbers are Cool.

Bloggie friends!

Not much happening in Old Kitty’s world so here is Charlie and his attempt at showing some Christmas spirit!

Charlie says: I wear Santa hat for nobody.



And here is my attempt at more Bad Poetry!
*************************
Avoid like the plague by Old Kitty

Such a stick in the mud
Was Brian, the boy next door
And worse was his good for nothing brother!

But they were thick as thieves
And did exactly what was said on the tin
And were over the moon when I legged it.

Just as well I didn't peg it.

:-)
***********************************
The above is my entry to the gorgeous Madeleine’s Cool as a Cucumber Blogfest – a feast of more clichés you could shake a stick at!

Deck the halls with boughs of holly – tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-laaaaa!

I saw a pet santa hat today at the store. but it looked like the size of a mouse's head. My dog would shake it off in about 2 seconds

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

LOL! Charlie would make a very good Santa's helper. He looks good in red :)

Your cliche poem is perfect!


Happy decorating/baking/card writing/ party going/etc., Jen!

Amber DaWeenie said...

Charlie, you can just about crawl right into that hat and make a tent out of it.....just sayin!

Mr Puddy said...

MOL..Chalie, The Santa Hat is pretty big for you and I do agree..It's purrfect size for your butt !...tee..heh..heh and when you wear it, you can also say " Poot Poot Poot ! instead " Ho Ho Ho "...Ha..Ha..Ha

mshatch said...

meowmeowmans said...

Haha, we liked your poetry. :) Madeleine's Cool as a Cucumber Blogfest sounds fun. We will go check it out now.

Charlie, we don't blame you for not wanting to wear that hat. But we must say, it looks very nice next to you!

Love it, Old Kitty.
Charlie is such a cool cat.

Patsy said...

Kitty, I reckon you're poem is the best thing since sliced bread!

Madeleine said...

LOL! Excellent!

Charlie looks exhausted after all that Christmas shopping and baking he's been doing! ;O)

The Chair Speaks said...

Red goes well with you, handsome Charlie. Purrs!

orbit said...

That hat looks more like a blanket!

Love Charlie's tail hat!
All best

Dave King said...

Priceless!

Fuzzy Tales said...

Hello and happy holidays to you both!

Charlie, stick to your guns--no kitty costumes!

Jennifer, good luck with your entry!

Happy Monday!

Hannah and Lucy said...

Charlie - no wonder you didn't wear that hat - you wouldn't have been able to see where you were going!! We hope you do well in your competition.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Creepy Query Girl said...

lol! Merry christmas charlie, even if you won't wear the hat!

Talli Roland said...

You've done well with the clichés! Charlie looks so blissful there!

Lydia Kang said...

Your posts (and poems) always make me smile!

Rene said...

Charlie, you made us laugh. We've never seen anyone wear a hat like that before!

Marg said...

Charlie, that Santa hat could be a cape for you. Sure looks pretty with your white furs.
Your Mom is quite the poet. We liked that poem a lot. Good one.Take care and have a great week.

Katnip Lounge said...

Charlie, you are BAH HUMBUG, to the max!

Margo Berendsen said...

It can be so much fun to play with cliches. I think you did a great job!

Theresa Milstein said...

Cliches are underrated. This blogfest is better than sliced bread. So many cliches in such a little space - well done!

Charlie, I'm glad to see you appear dignified despite Old Kitty's attempts to get you to wear an oversized hat.

Brian said...

Hey Charlie, you look yule cool!

My 2 Pesos said...

Such a cute cat. :3 Facebook Twitter

The Golden Eagle said...

Charlie is so cute with the Santa hat. :)

Great blogfest entry!

Stephen Tremp said...

I thought Charlie might say, "Please not Slytherin, please not Slytherin, please not Slytherin!"

L'Aussie said...

Hey Old Kitty! You take the prize for a cliche on every line! Awesomely clever!

ABBY said...

Oh Charlie
We think you look very festive.
purrs

LynNerdKelley said...

Haha! That's a great cliche poem, Old Kitty. Well done!

Kristen Pelfrey said...

Charlie is a character! My dogs won't wear santa hats or reindeer antlers, either, but they will wear ribbons. :)

klahanie said...

And a very good attempt at bad poetry:)
Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet star and I, a mere human, thank you for your ongoing kindness on my shy and humble blog.
Hugs to you and Charlie.
Pawsitive wishes and doggy kisses from Penny and a big thank y'all from me, yes me, a mere human!
Take good care,

Stina Lindenblatt said...

That's better poetry than I write. :D

Betsy said...

haha...Oh that is just too cute! And so is your poetry! :)

Janet Johnson said...

Charlie is a good sport! Very fun poem. :)

Dawn Simon said...

It's so cheery in your corner of the blogosphere. :) Fun poem! Ho-ho-ho to Charlie!

Esme said...

Charlie, you look lovely in red.

Romance Reader said...

Your poem is beautiful and I loved it!

Elaine AM Smith said...

Cliches are images that used to sparkle. This blogfest was away of dusting off the love of ages and giving them another time to shine. For a tiny poem you condensed a whoel bunch of cliches in there. Great fun!

Charlie, you should go with the flow and get into the Christmas spirit. Old Kitty found you impressive and appropriate leisure wear and you look like a cat who likes his leisure ;)

Susan Fields said...

That was quite a feast of cliches - good job!

And Charlie looks very handsome posing with a Santa's hat!

Ann said...

Well your cliche poem made me giggle. Well done!

Hart Johnson said...

Cali's idea of Christmas spirit is to attack the things left under the tree. Love your 'cliche' entry!

Manzanita said...

Cody understands, Charlie.
The saddest picture I have of Cody is one taken at the Pet Center with Cody wearing a Santa hat. Not a happy puppy.
Nice poem. I think I know your neighbors. :)

Jemi Fraser said...

Love it! I don't blame the animals for avoiding the costumes - I do it too :)

Lynda R Young said...

lol!! I love your entry!!
And of course Charlie looks gorgeous as usual.

Alex the Cat - Feeling Beachie said...

So cute, you are sure in the spirit charlie

KarenMcG said...

Ohhh, Charlie. You look so good in Santa red!

Cynthia Chapman Willis said...

Aww, Charlie seems to be very much in the Christmas spirit. But will he ever wear that hat? I know my kitties wouldn't. No way. : )

Cheri said...

We don't do hats either Charlie! Fun poem!

Clarissa Draper said...

Love the poem. My dog doesn't like wearing anything either.

Elizabeth Mueller said...

You're so cute and you make me smile! I wonder if cucumbers are cool only because they've been refrigerated? ^.^

Deniz Bevan said...

Aww! I once got a knit holly collar on my older cat, for just long enough to take a photo.

Jay Paoloni said...

Charlie's cute.
Are we sure he's wearing Santa's hat out of his own will? ;)

Follow me on my blog if what I write interests you!

Al said...

Santa is beneath Charlie?

LTM said...

Omg, Charlie looks about the way Flower would if I tried to put a Santa hat on her. Only she might've bit me... :D

and LOL! That poem is HILARIOUS! Just as well I didn't peg it. Great stuff.

Merry Christmas, guys~ <3

Simon Kewin said...

People who wear santa hats are just odd ...

William Kendall said...

What a poem!

Charlie wonders how long he has to put up with being used for a Santa decoration....

TK and Squashies said...

Charlie you looks just like Sandy Claws! Such a gorgeous boy!
We likes your mom's poem. It needs another verse, acause we are very interested!

Lydia Kang said...

I like your poems! They make me smile. :)

Linda Gruchy said...

Oh Charlie Moggie, you do look comfy.

Tracy Jo said...

Your attempt at bad poetry made me smile! Charlie looks pretty chilled out with his Santa hat. Hope you are enjoying the season!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

LOL...I thought your poem was going to be about the plague. I think I spend too much time reading history books. :)

Charlie looks wonderful.

Caryn Caldwell said...

Cute! :-)

Arlee Bird said...

Okay--I'll hold no punches. That was truly bad poetry. It had more cliches than you could shake a stick at--a muddy stick at that. If this blogfest had been a contest you would have been the winner.
And I'm still smiling.

Eliza said...

Charlie look like he's wearing the hat as a blanket.

D.J. Kirkby said...

Good old Charlie, that's the spirit! Your poem did make me laugh...

Medeia Sharif said...

Nice entry and I like the theme of that blogfest.

Maybe Charlie is being picky and is saving the hat for later.

Ann Dziemianowicz said...

Your poem is a lot of fun! Great idea for a contest. :)

Am looking forward to Christmas over here in New Jersey too! (I'm not wearing a hat either Charlie!)

cleemckenzie said...

Kitty has a sense of pride, I see. There'll be no silly hat in his future, even after catnip.

Have a great holiday season.

Charlie looks as cool as a cucumber. :o) I love your little ditty poems! They are so flippant and fun.

Merry Christmas!
