Proverbs and what is a Meta for anyway...

Our uncle Gil camed over on Thursday fur a haircut, den as long as mom had da clipper out she cut dad's hair too. She was apposeta go see her nefews band play but by da time she cleaned up from dinner she was to tired. Yesterday she spent the whole day doing stupid stuff like washing da kitchen floor and cleaning da bean litter rooms and washing sheets and stuff and woodent turn on da pooter fur us to blog! Oh, we visited some of our frends but mom sez dat in order to get to visit effuryone wood take a whole day and she needed to get stuff done. *sigh* I gess we don't come furst in her life anymore...anyway, our frend Dragonheart tagged us fur da proverb meme and we took some time to think about ours.

A proverb is a simple and concrete saying popularly known and repeated, which expresses a truth, based on common sense or the practical experience of catkind. They are often metaphorical.

This is Dragonheart's - If at first your humans don't tend to your needs, meow and meow again.

Mine is this - Kitties who live in glass howses shood pull da drapes afore dey clean spot thirteen. So, Sadie, do yoo haf yoors reddy?

Oh, thanks for that image yoo krazee boy cat! Yeah I got one - If yoo lay down wif Speedy yoo'll wake up wif his but in yoor face. (good thing he keeps his spot 13 clean) Seriusly now, here is my real one - Don't put all yoor toys in one basket. Zippy, are yoo awake? Would yoo like to put yoor proverb on dis post? Zippy? Um, mom can yoo wake her up please...

Wha, huh, oh...um, I was just taking a little nap. Uh, yeah I gots one...a tem-tay-shun in da mouth is worth two in da bag. Mmm, tem-tay-shuns...MOMMMMM can we haf some treats now?

Thank yoo Sadie and Zippy. Speshully Zippy who gots us extra treats! We is suppose to tag somecats now but we'z so late wif dis dat prolly effuryone has been tagged. So, yoo shood do dis meme, yes yoo. We see yoo der, go do dis.

You three are making me laugh. :) Thanks for the grins. :)

I like all of your proverbs! Especially the one about not putting all your toys in one basket, and the Temptations one (now that I've finally tried them!)

I hope your mom has a more relaxing day today.

Daisy said...

Hahahahaha! Those are some very great proverbs. Very true, too. You would not want the whole world to see you clean your spot #13! Now that I been thinking about not putting all my toys in one basket, I think I had better move my toys OUT of my toybox and stash them in several different spots. Just to be safe.

ps: I still think your mom works too hard!

I thinks its good that I don't live in a glass house. Ya know that one makes me think of a new proverb: If ya don't keep spot 13 clean yer mombean may come after you with a wipe.
Man I hate when that happens!

How do you get your bean to clean, anyway? Don't tell us she cooks too.
