The Adventures/Misadventures of Kirby

© by Shyron Shenko 1-7-2016

Christmas 2015 and I, Kirby

Can be seen sniffing and sipping, you know what I mean?

The drinks all went down so easy

And now I’m feeling real queasy

If it is where I can, I will drink it,

even if it tastes like mud

Guess Marsha didn’t know

When she adopted me

Drinking is in my blood

It was the day after Christmas it had been a long night

I was wound-up real tight and ready for flight

Aiming for the fan with all of my might

I hit Marsha and my feline female friend

That's when I knew I didn’t aim right


My drinking days have been Cat-nipped in the bud

Now I am restricted to water or milk with my spud

Next time I get high, I will not try to fly

I will just give Marsha a purr with a sigh

Happy New Year

From Kirby, Marsha and Shyron

NOTE: Thank you Marsha for the wonderful pictures and your permission to use them.

      I think I like the picture of Kirby after too much partying the best, but they're all great. A fun poem. I hope your grandchildren have read it. :))

      Kirby is adorably sweet. Our feline friends are so very wonderfully heart warming. Just seeing a furry image makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

      Au fait, thank you for the compliment, and comments.

      Yes the weather suites me just fine, I thought of you when I opened the door and it was cooler outside than inside. Today was a hell day anyway. Hubby forgot which button locks the door in the car and which one unlocks it, and he was waiting for me to go in the store and I got out of the car and the store was closed and when I tried to get back in the car the door it was locked, I used my remote to unlock it and he locked it back at least five times, so glad it was not hot outside. Tomorrow I will probably not be on here he has an appointment tomorrow morning and we both have appointments tomorrow afternoon.

      Blessings and hugs dear friend.

      Came by to share this cute poem about Kirby again, and of course his cool photos too.

      Don't you love these cooler temperatures? What gives? This is August when we usually have 100+ temps. Not complaining, no, no, no. Love it, but it is very strange. Hope you and John are well. Blessings dear friend, for all that you do. Take care . . .

      Thank you Audrey (vocalcoach) for the comment. I love Kirby also, he belongs to my dear sweet friend Marsha. Kirby now has a brother named Mannix and I have been trying to find time to write a poem for him.

      Blessings and hugs dear friend.

      It would be cruel for me to have a pet(s) because they would be home alone most of the time and pets need companionship even more than people.

      Hope all is well with you.

      Blessings and hugs my dear friend.

      Peg, thank you for the comment, I am so glad you liked my poem and Marsha's pictures. Kirby is so funny, he gets into all kinds of mischief, he even sends e-mail I have write about that and he is still a kitten.

      Sis Jo, I am so happy that you enjoyed this adventure of Kirby's, who knows what he will get into next.

      He poses in all kinds of ways, Marsha says he is like a rag doll when he cat nips, I mean naps. Lol.

      Thank you dear sis for the comment.

      I wonder how they were able to get the cat to pose like that?

      Shauna, thank you for the comment. I am glad you enjoyed the satire of Kirby, he was sick after Christmas, but I don't think he had been nipping except maybe catnip. The poem just sort-of came to me with the pictures.

      Blessings and Hugs my friend.

      Bill, thank you so much for the comment, I am so glad you enjoyed, Kirby is so comical it may become a series, and when Marsha was telling us (her friends) that he was sick the day after Christmas and what he did when he was sick, the words and pictures just matched.

      Blessings and Hugs my friend.

      Ha Ha Kirby's been cat nipping. What a hoot! Cute as a bug under the rug..

      What a cute story! I'm sure Kirby didn't think so as he wandered through life in his drunken stupor. I guess even cats learn their lessons the hard way.
