My Better Side

I heard a guy on the radio the other day say we men, or mencats, still haven't gotten in touch with our feminine side and need to do so.

Just in case nobody's noticed, I can be sensitive and sweet-tempered.

I even recite poetry:

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Pigeons are tasty
Especially in stew.


There are those who say my life is a bed of roses





I even like lace on occasion






Not to mention a soft pillow with ruffles






Not all of us bench press. I like the smell of cologne. I knew one ladycat who really liked my eau de fur and would curl up in my spot when I walked away.

The question remains. Do I have a feminine side? Well, let's put it this way: when you snooze through life, you can never have too much lace.

Oh Tom that poem is terrific. We think you have a little bit of a feminine side. Love the lace over your shoulder. Wishing you a fabulous day. Take care.

Tom we didn't realise what a great poet you are -

We think you are in touch with both sides of being a mancat! And we loved the poem - mom said she was glad she wasn't drinking anything or it might have some out her nose (we think we would have liked to see that). MOL Have a great weekend.

The femmes of this world will appreciate your feminine side, Tom. You are right to embrace it! (And who ever said that lace was limited to girl cats, anyway?)

Ginger Jasper said...

I too have a soft side and thats just great a mancat needs to be in touch with his feminine side I think. Love your pictures.. Hugs GJ xx

Brian said...

I loved your tasty poem too! I guess I have a feminine side, that's why I love my pink bed. Plus I am constantly in touch with my inner kitten! Happy weekend Tom!

Your poem rules, Tom! I am kind of a tomgirl kitty myself.

Tom
my two brothers said you are an excellent poet!
We find it true that mancats are not afraid of their feminine side, we think it's because cats are superior and don't have to worry about ego.

You definitively have a feminie side if you like to prepare pigeons in stew !! Don't forget to invite Rosie and Arthur !

Julia Williams said...

MOL, I love your poem!!! Poor pigeons though. =^..^= - I'm also very fond of Maine Coon cats. I had a cat, Gypsy, that I am 99% sure had some Maine Coon in her, and she was just gorgeous.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm following you now and hope you will follow me too!

I agree with The Whiskeratti - Pawsome!

OKcats said...

We like a mancat who is secure enough to embrace his feminine side - and lace is very classy!

Tamago said...

You are a mancat with sensitivity! You look great with lace. And you are such a talented poet! I love the part "pigeons are tasty, especially in stew" :-)

Tom, you are a trailblazer in the metrosexual mancat department. Come visit us on Monday when we will meow like a pirate.

Hahaha...I like your (dark) poetry! That guy on the radio doesn't know cats -- ignore him.
