Bianca, Sadie and Wilie of Mosaic Cats tagged Jake for the proverb meme. And wow is he excited. He thinks it's too cool to be tagged on Tyler's blog site, before his brother was.
A proverb is a simple and concrete saying popularly known and repeated, which expresses a truth, based on common sense or the practical experience of mankind. They are often metaphorical.
Here is one proverb created by Willie and Bianca together: There are only twenty-four hours in a nap.
(I don't know how to count hours yet, but it sounds good to me except when I'm not napping and then I'm terrorizing....but then that's cuz I'm a kitten. I loves my naps, but when they're over, THEY ARE OVER. Not like my ancient sister Kali who only naps.)
And Sadie, who is described as being spiritual gave us this one:
"No one puts new clean litter into dirty old litter boxes, or else the new litter will touch the poo poo parts, and it will be stinky, and the clean litter will be skanky.
But new litter must be put into clean litter boxes, and both are good. No cat having scratched new litter immediately desires old, for he says, ‘The new is better.’ "
Wow, Sadie must have gone to cat school or something. That's a lot of words. I like the part about the clean litter and the clean litterboxes. That was the best part, Sadie.
Okay, here is mine: A rolling vet or vet helper gathers no sticking owchy sticks that hurt young kitty's behinds.
or maybe I'll change it to: A rolling vet person gathers no sticking owchy sticks unless they stick themselves while they're rolling.
And another one I dedicate to my Momma:: Better never late than ever.
My last one is: Eat to live and live to eat.
That's all I've got for now cuz my typist is leaving the house. I tag Lux, Angus and Chase.
Jake (who's the one who was given this meme and not his older brother who didn't get it)
