TK ~ THE DRIVING CAT [with a paws up to Toonces]

 Over at Sam's Poetry Corner today, the letter of the day is "D" ... and our poem is called:


TK will drive, along I-Ninety-Five.

In "Horton", the RV, on the lap of Miss Dee,
he shifts and he steers ... his strong paws know no fears!

18-wheelers whiz by, other trucks by the score,
but TK's driving skills have raced Indy before!

... once upon a time ... '89 I think it was ... and TK was just a wee little kit back then ...

Tiny Kitty met a cat of some fame.
Toonces The Driving Cat was his name,
and great pals they became.
Toonces taught TK all that he knew,
this super-star cat from the SNL crew.

And now here we all are,
Dee, Ann, Zoey and Pip,
our claws digging in, getting a grip,
as TK at the wheel, drives I-Ninety-Five ...
paws together one and all,
that we reach Florida alive!

"Toonces! Look Out!"


  1. That is quite a talent. But we will never be allowed free in a car. Tinkerbelle was once, and she got unner the brake pedal! No more free cats in cars after that!
