  1. Good Cat Wenclespuss sang out
    On the Feast of Stephen
    Songs of mouse snacks round & stout
    Roasted crisp & even

    @JennyWriteMoore #W8Padvent

  2. 'Live! On X Factor! The Final! Singing to Survive! Mouse sings, Ding Dong Merrily on High!' #W8PAdvent @debbiecoope

  3. Once again the Cat chorus was paid not to sing #W8P @WriterBizWoman

  4. Kitty's brother was beckoning her frantically. Had the trail of tinsel strands led somewhere after all? @MotherGoutte #W8Padvent

  5. For the annual Cheesemas celebration,
    The cat and mouse war sees a cessation,
    And the catty choir chorus in jubilation!

  6. Cat choir caterwauls,
    snow falls softly from the sky.
    Mouse squeaks the chorus.

  7. "I know that Christmas is about goodwill to all men," miaowed Henrietta, "but no-one said anything about mice." #W8PAdvent @whoatemybrain

  8. Willow tried to smile, but it was hard to be happy when the mutant mice had stolen the colour from Christmas @riewriting #W8PAdvent

  9. The Christmas Cat-trap-Mouse lures them in while Starling and his 1000 brothers swoop in for the final bombardment!
    #W8PAdvent @GeorgeKirk2

  10. The caterwauling began. Cat looked at mouse, mouse looked at bird, and they raced off through the snowy night #W8PAdvent @nancyesaunders

  11. Mouse wasn't sure if he wanted to perform his solo anymore...#W8PAdvent @mcrogerson

  12. "Get lost! You know what happened last Christmas!" Mouse shuffled off with a bauble shattering squeak. @jancarr W8PAdvent

  13. To continue carolling, or to make minced mouse pie – that is the question. #W8PAdvent @OzKidsYALit


We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
