Big Man-cat Monday

FINALLY!! My OTW has let me have the computer for a little bit!

So for Big Man-Cat Monday I have something special to say.

Big Man Vikings weren't just supposed to be great warriors and fierce hunters. They were supposed to be law-abiding citizens, generous and loyal to their friends and family, and take care of those who were their responsibility. By doing all this, they were considered good men and valued parts of the community.

Big Man Vikings were also supposed to be very proud of their appearance and their deeds, and be able to write poetry.

As a Big Man-Cat Viking, I AM a fierce hunter, and mighty warrior, I abide by the laws of this house (I'm not the trouble-maker who keeps kicking to death toilet-paper rolls and I always come in when I'm called), I love my OTW best of all and train and groom the kittens well. I also have beautiful furs and catch many bugs and mousie-toys!

So that only leaves poetry.

So here is my poem, I hope it's good. It's the first viking poetry I ever wrote! (Oh, and my OTW helped, 'cause she's a noted skald among her viking friends)

For KC

Well-known, this girl-cat’s worth,
Her word-fame, far spoken
A golden-pawed goddess
Is she who gives me joy.

Hawk-keen out of heaven
She hunts, Bug-Valkyrie
Tortie of mousie-toys
She has taken my heart

KC, will you be my Valentine? And go to the Valentine Party with me? I got you a box of Temptations and this heart toy that's really fun to bat around (I tested it myself!). I was going to get you a cat-grass corsage, but my OTW killed all the grass again.
