The Cat’s Visit: The Cat in the Hat Fanfiction

The Cat in the Hat set off to the house
of the boy and the girl, to give them a rouse
He brought with him toys and three other things
Like books and balloons and tossable rings.
Humidity was high on the warm summer day
and he didn’t think they’d go outside to play
instead they would stay at home in the dark
reading good stories and a bath with a shark.
He’d sit with them quiet and not read them junk
Kids like his friends didn’t want books that stunk.
No audience needed for the Cat in the Hat
He knew about fame and what went with that
Instead he chose quiet with friends like the kids
And stayed until bedtime, when both kids closed their lids.

The Cat in the Hat sat back in his chair
He motioned the children, “Come on over here”.
They looked at the screen and were totally awed
At the mirror that smoked, it had to be flawed.
But the Cat took their hands and he tried to explain
“What you see on the screen, well it isn’t all sane”
He continued to show them some other strange sites
like Fandango and Bushboy, and a Stine who just writes.
Then they closed up the tab and went back to the toys
That they knew how to use without unfettered ploys
When their mother came home and the children were fed
She thanked the smart cat and sent the kids straight to bed.

Fandango and Bushboy, I hope you don’t mind me using your names in my work. They just popped into my head and fit nicely!

Thursday Inspiration: Cold

Jim is the host and gave us this picture and the word, cold. Here goes…

Poor, cold cat (Cat in the Hat fan fiction)

And now he was back. The Cat in the Hat
And even though cold, he ne’r worried bought that
He worried ‘bout green cheese and even green eggs
He worried ‘bout spiders and all of their legs
He came well prepared, that Cat in the Hat
He came with some bug spray and his big baseball bat
He told the kids stories that his pop told him
Even ‘bout working, which sometimes were grim
But he smiled and nodded to keep the mood light
Or else these two kids would end up in a fight
Then mom would be mad that the Cat came to call
She’d make him leave quick with his stories and all
She’d make him run far and tell him not to come back
‘Cause common sense manners their mom did not lack
She’d tell him to stay away far from her house
“I’ll call the police! You dirty old louse!”
So the cat kept on walking, even now in the snow
‘Cause home was the only place he knew to go.

FOWC with Fandango — Renounce

Fandango hosts this daily challenge

renounce (rĭ-nouns′)

intransitive verb

  1. To give up (a title or possession, for example), especially by formal announcement.
  2. To decide or declare that one will no longer adhere to (a belief or position); reject.
  3. To decide or declare that one will no longer engage in (a practice) or use (something): synonym: relinquish.

The Cat in the Hat showed up at the house
with a suitcase firm in his hand
He said that he had a show to show them
A show about a marching band

The kids were excited to see the new show
They at popcorn and sat there real still
And the Cat played a little piano and sang
It really wasn’t a thrill.

The Cat said he’d march in a minute
the marching part he liked the most
He marched in and out of the kitchen
He marched out eating their toast!

He marched down the long empty hallway
to show the kids what fun could be had
but the kids knew the cat was absurd
and his playing was really that bad.

The Cat felt their growing resentment
and wished that he’d just leave this place
When he renounced and said he was leaving
He saw relief wipe over their face.

The cat took the little piano
He took all the popcorn and chairs
He packed up his little container
And headed down the front step stairs.

Tale Weaver – #313 – Finding Something Forgotten – February 4th, 2021

The Cat finds his kite

The Cat in the Hat was somewhere brand new 
he didn’t know who lived there or lived there with who. 
He saw lots of toys and some stuff in the yard 
He tried to look inside, curtains made it hard. 

He thought that he’d knock on the door that’s bright red 
Perhaps they’d know him by the hat on his head 
Most people did know him for what he did wear 
He was famous to most, though he couldn’t care. 

So he walked up the walk and he stood nice and straight 
he walked up the steps and he closed the front gate 
He didn’t want pets that might live there to leave 
Most kids did have pets, or he’d like to believe. 

When all of a sudden from up on the roof 
A balloon went by flying, then popped with a Poof! 
Down to the ground a bright paper did float 
He bent down to get it and saw it’s a note. 

The note it was written in crayon and pen 
Was the writing he noticed from a little boy Ben? 
The note was so sweet that the Cat he did cry 
Ben had an old kite that the Cat used to fly. 

The Cat was so happy to get back his kite 
He smiled so big with his teeth white and bright. 
So Ben lived in this house that he just stopped by 
And now he and Ben watch their kites blow and fly.

d’Verse Poets Pub: Poetics: The Poet’s Store HousePoetics: The Poet’s Store House

I haven’t visited the Pub in so very long! I was happy to see this challenge as I love my Thesaurus! Check it out here

There were two prompts to choose from – this is the first choice
Write a SOUND POEM which includes AT LEAST ONE from EACH of the FIVE HEARING CATEGORY SELECTIONS below: (reference the hearing words you chose in your post).

  • bellow; clink; drone; jingle; quiver;
  • clamour; dissonant; rip-roaring; tempestuous; vociferous;
  • dulcet: honeyed; poetic; sonorous; tonal;
  • blabber; cackle; dribble; gurgle; seethe;
  • beseech; chant; drawl; embellish; intone

Snoring Man

The bellow I heard was a dissonant sound
I could feel the loud blabber through the dirt on the ground
Poetically troubled and embellished with horror
My mind tried to grasp that the man was a snorer
Instead of just sitting and feeling the wrath
I imagined myself getting in a hot bath
This helped calm my mind and clear all the clamour
Even though my deep voice continued to stammer
I walked right away trying to keep myself happy
Realizing listening to this was like a bad, dirty nappy.

This is the second choice:
Simply write about the Thesaurus, as the above poets have – what it means to you; describe it, have fun with it. Let the synonyms flow, or antagonise with antonyms.

There are no restrictions on poetry style or meter but those of you who like Acrostics might want to make a nine liner for THESAURUS.

The Cat brings a Thesaurus

So the Cat in the Hat
came back to the house
with a book in his hands
too big for a mouse
He loved this great book
since its loaded with words
he couldn’t wait to show them
since the amount was absurd
He knew that the kids
would love a book such as this
Like the Swiss love the alps
there’s not one word to miss.

The Cat in the Hat comes to play

The Cat in the Hat knew the mom would be mad 
if she saw all the toys and goodies he had. 
He tried to keep quiet and out of her way 
to keep her distracted was the way he could stay. 

He started with smiles and a proud, firm handshake 
His brow started sweating, she would know it was fake 
All he had to get by was this first “How d’ya do?” 
Then to get to the kids, just he and those two. 

So he started to walk on his back legs to show 
that he knew that his back was the rude way to go. 
The mother was pleased by the Cat’s gentle tone 
She was happy to leave the three of them all alone. 

The Cat took his bag and all the tricks he had found 
The comics and posters and the car with the sound 
He spread them all out on the rug in the room 
He had his own bag and could clean with his broom. 

The kids were so happy to see all his stuff 
He wondered if they thought there wasn’t enough.  
But for hours they played without one single fight 
A perfect fun day led to a quite tired night.

NaPoWriMo 2021: 4/9/2021

Find the information here: https://www.napowrimo.net/day-four-9/

Write a poem in the form of a “to-do list.” The fun of this prompt is to make it the “to-do list” of an unusual person or character.

The Cat makes a list

Well the Cat in the Hat 
was up to his tricks 
looking for kids 
to bring into the mix.  
He had a big list 
of things left to do 
like tidy his bag 
and polish his shoe. 
He also had things 
like talk to the fish, 
walk on a ball,
balance a dish, 
take a long walk, 
Sing a new song, 
play a new game, 
the list was real long. 
The Cat sat to think 
about what to do first 
he decided a drink  
who help quench his dry thirst 
When all of a sudden 
he finally found 
a book and a pen 
to write it all down. 
He wrote down his list 
in a second or two 
He loved the red ink 
and also the blue. 
He jotted and scribbled 
until the paper was full 
He put on his hat 
and gave it a pull 
He went on his way 
to find some kids to play 
and decided to leave 
the list to some other day.
