Frankenstein's Cat.



It is not unusual when you lead a busy and active life for bits to fall off a cat. Above is a picture of Steve, the ginger cat who runs the coloured horse farm. A long time ago he put his tail down somewhere and then couldn't remember where.
We know of a cat with one eye, a cat with no ears, a cat with no fur and a cat with no tail and three legs.
When Elmo was little we told him that there was someone who lived near here who would steal parts of a cat, piece by piece, to make a Frankenstein cat. An ear here, an eye there, a tail, some fur and a leg, or two.
Poor Elmo. He wouldn't go to sleep at night unless he was curled up with a dog or a cat or Hannah. And when he woke the first thing he would do was check all his paws and his tail and ears to make sure they were all there.

Poor Elmo, it's tough being the little brother.

Oh dear, we hope the Frankenstein did not get it. It is not good to leave your tail lying around where anyone can pick it up.

Maybe it got picked up by the person who makes "Cat-o-nine tails".
We have heard of this cat that lives on ships, but sailors do not like them.

That happened to my neighbours cat, in their house. Lots and lots of blood but no tail whatsoever, so what you said is true!!! Argh!!

Poor Elmo! How could you tell him stories like that! It's lucky he can sleep at night.

My Lady's Lady had a kitty who had only one eye. She said she was beautiful.

Cats may leave their heads behind but never their brains :)
