Fond recollections of kittenhood

October 2, 2014

Hickory Dickory Dock… Humpty Dumpty Sat on a Wall… Jack be nimble….

Ah! I’m reliving my days as a kitten as I look through the wonderful nursery rhymes at As a purrrrrfectly precious and adorable little kitten I found my Nana Cat reading these most wonderful rhymes to me on a daily basis. I was reminded of them this week when I heard a young child in our store lobby reciting “Twinkle, twinkle, little star…” She was quite proud of herself and the memorization (not to mention the charm of the subject matter) that she had accomplished by reciting this lengthy, though child-sized, rhyme.

I think it served me well as a reminder to stop and enjoy the time together that can come from sharing wonderful little tidbits like these. As the seasons change and we look to the holidays where friends and family are more present in our lives, take a moment to pull out your favorite children’s book (or nursery rhyme website) and share some quality time with the pint-sized ones in your life. They will remember it, as I do, forever.

Fondest Regards,






Moire The Cat

I am a cat. A cat that has done more, seen more, and been more than most men will ever know. My pedigree is defined by modest lineage but I have risen to be one of the finest. One of the most humble, modest, handsome, intelligent, regal, charming, and cunning felines you may ever meet. I often have 'run-ins' with the MPA tight-wad, fun-hater COO, Justin over such things as spa visits and luxury grooming. Having a cat with the skills I possess is not in-expensive. I don't come with a manual and there is no 'figuring me out'. I write a weekly column called "ASK MOIRE" where my faithful readership gets advice and suggestions for a healthy, more balanced life by sending questions to this email address: MOIRE@ASKMPA.COM
