Bruno puts in an appearance
“On Rearing the First Cuckoo Offspring”
For all these years, steadfast and true
Moonmariners we’ve been …
Breeding cats with ‘proper’ faces
You’ll know just what we mean!
So now we’re joined by Bruno
Who looks different to the rest.
You might think of him among the gang
As ‘a cuckoo in the nest’.
But no! He ‘carries’ colourpoint
And will help improve our stock,
Though some offspring might be ‘tabby’
And some ‘solid’ .. what a shock!
And though some noses may be highish
They’ll be no higher than at present ..
The faces of Moonmariners
Will always be presentable and pleasant.
You’ve only to hear the Von Mouse Trapp choir
They certainly don’t sing wheezilly
You’ll see that they can all say “TUNES …
They help us breathe more easily!”
So, welcome little Bruno …
The brown tabby cuckoo in the nest!
You’ll be a grand addition to our Persians,
Everyone will be impressed !

“The best laid plans of mice and men …”
But sadly it was not to be
For Bruno was averse
To all our cats we classed as ‘she’
Sexually, he was perverse!
For him the cushy life to be a pet
Was all that he desired
So, he made ‘that journey’ to the vet
No cuckoo offspring will be sired!
