Cat Burglar of Dreams

(hard, 2pts): Incorporate a quote from a favorite poem

Final day to post: June 1st, midnight GMT.

In an attempt to gain maximum exposure, Chester began sleeping on the job. He had tried everything else and figured learning through osmosis was the key to success. If it didn’t work out at least he’d get a good catnap out of it so he figured that he couldn’t lose. His head has been in worse places… let’s just say that a head’s no place for underwear!

One fine even as Chester decided to do a little overtime. He had been working on gaining all the knowledge he needed to capture a play thing that he had been seeing scampering around the patio. It was bigger than the ordinary mouse and had a bushy tail rather than the naked skinny ones he was used to seeing. Chester would often catch Bushy Tail watching him through the window as he was getting his on the job training and he figured that was just more learning for him. This particular evening Fred, Chester’s human, left the window open and Bushy Tail chewed his way in.

Bushy Tail scampered around the house looking for things to eat and he just kept shoving things into his mouth. Chester wondered where he was keeping it all and eventually curiosity got the cat, he had to get up to get a closer look. In stealth mode he snuck up on Bushy Tail, he sat back on his haunches and then sprang through the air preparing to pounce. Bushy Tail was slyer than the average rodent and he turned and pounced at Chester! They met mid air and fell in a heap onto the floor and began brawling. He was quickly realizing that his human was right when he tried to tell him he was sleeping on the wrong kind of mouse. Next time he will need to find one with a bushy tail rather than the naked one!

Bushy Tail was definitely winning the fight so it was a good thing that Chester’s human walked in the door at just the right moment. Bushy Tail flew through the air to pounce on Chester one last time and his human smacked him with his golf club knocking him to the ground. Bushy Tail was out for the count! Chester’s human had a thing for stuffing dead animals but since Bushy Tail was only stunned he figured a mugshot would suffice this time. Chester likes to think of it as his souvenirs for a job well done and keeps it near the wind as a reminder to Bushy Tail!

Poem quote is courtesy of As Soon as Fred Gets Out of Bed by Jack Prelutsky.

As soon as Fred gets out of bed,
his underwear goes on his head.
His mother laughs, "Don't put it there,
a head's no place for underwear!"
But near his ears, above his brains,
is where Fred's underwear remains.

At night when Fred goes back to bed,
he deftly plucks it off his head.
His mother switches off the light
and softly croons, "Good night! Good night!"
And then, for reasons no one knows,
Fred's underwear goes on his toes.
