Nursery Rhyme Redo: It's Raining, It's Pouring

It's raining, it's pouring
And the cat is snoring
Upon the pillow beside my head
And there he will be until morning

This seems quite appropriate considering the rainy day here.

Posted for dVerse poetry.


  1. Is it raining cats, or dogs...or both? --grin!

    Cute photo. My cat curls up under my chin and purrs himself to sleep (and me to wake) for hour or two every nap.


  2. That is so cute! I don't know about sleeping with cats though. They suck out your breath when you are asleep.

    Yes, Linda. I'm kidding.

  3. Purrrfect! Gotta love cats. :)

  4. ha. he is not much different than my cat...though mine tend to sleep up high so they can keep watch...

  5. almost time to say:

    the Santa Clause is snoring.

    a fun lyrics.

  6. Your cat sure looks comfy. A rainy day just calls for a warm kitty to snuggle with.

  7. Interesting use of a pillow, he lloks so cosy. The nursery rhyme is purrfect

  8. Steve E - Thanks. It only rains cats at our house. We have three. Thanks for stopping by.

    Linda- Yeah, I know you're kidding. Cats have been part of the sleeping experience for almost 25 years, and we're still breathing.

    Hilary- Most certainly - they are a big part of our lives.

    Brian- One of ours loves her "tree house".

    The Noiseless Cuckooclock- Yep, it's almost that time. Thanks for visiting.

    Jayne- Rosie is definitely a snuggle bunkins.

    Anji- Thank you. Rosie thinks I have the best pillow ever.

    guatami triathy- Thank you!

  9. HA! Loved the poem, and the cat is too cute!!

  10. My cat sleeps on my head, but I don't think it's because she's affectionate, I think it's because she's trying to suffocate me :-)

  11. As usual a delightful rendition of a Nursery Rhyme. I love your "redos."

    BTW You've received an award:~) Stop by my site and pick it up when you can.

    This blogging award is a bit different than the usual "mememe" awards. I found it very challenging. It is also well-deserved.

  12. Meleah- Thank you! Rosie, the model, sends his thanks, too.

    Nicky- Rosie tries to sleep on my head, but I relegate him to the edge. He thinks I've got the best pillow.

    Sara- Thank you so much. I am glad you are enjoying the series. Sometimes it can be quite the challenge. Also, thank you for the award. Your praise means a lot to me.

  13. I trust you don't suffer from cat allergies. :)
